In the Benediction against Tempests we find the sentence – ‘Jesus Nazarenus Rex Judeorum, - Titulus triumphalis benedicat et custodiat nos ab omnibus malis;' and in the solemn Exorcism of persons bewitched (‘contra omnia malefica') the demon was adjured ‘per triumphalem titulum,' which is directed to be written on the forehead of the sufferer.” – p. 67. “Gold pectoral cross found at Clare Castle, Suffolk.” The Archaeological Journal: Published Under the Direction of the ..., Volume 25. London, 1868. ¶ Regarding exorcisms, Clement XI objected to some in current use: “Some of the formulas, in fact, were coarsely vituperative in the highest degree. The demons were addressed as infernal beasts, vile filth of hell, stinking dung and other contemptuous epithets, and were threatened that their meat and drink should be fire, hail, snow, ice, sulphur, pitch, absinth, rosin, lead, the venom of serpents, etc.” – Henry Charles Lea, Chapters from the Religious History of Spain Connected with the Inquisition, Philadelphia: Lea, 1890, p. 425.

        Conamen mappae generalis medicamentorum simplicium secundum affinitiates virium naturalium nova methodo geographica dispositorum ... cum tabula aenea.Strasbourg, Bauer & Treuttel (colophon: Johann Heinrich Heitz), 1778. 4to. With a large folding engraved map (58 x 62 cm). Sprinkled brown paper on boards.

      Blake, p. 496; Pritzel 41369; Quaritch, De Belder collection II, 907; cf. Hirsch VI, p. 339 (on the author). First and only edition of an "eccentric" pharmaceutical work by George-Christophe Wu¨rtz (1756-1823), a French philosopher and physician. In this work he "attempts to create a map of mental and physiological functions with herbal simples arranged according to the localities they effect. This is illustrated by the plate with the herbs appearing as stars as in a celestial chart" (Quaritch). The text, divided into two parts, discusses the method used and the scientific nature of the relations he found. Due to the completely new approach the present work earned him a respected position within the French and German medical field. Foxed throughout, and with a water stain in the outer margin of the first 50 pages, otherwise a good copy. Binding rubbed along the extremities, spine damaged at the head and foot.

This dedication was later abolished in the aftermath of a quarrel, described by Piranesi in his Lettere di Giustificazione [Letters of Justification] (1757), which also gave rise to three different versions of this first original edition (May 1756). These different versions are distinguishable from the title-page of the first volume, which initially was dedicated to the Irish aristocrat, then exhibited a cancelled dedication and coat of arms and, finally, bore a Latin motto written by the artist "Aevo Suo Posteri set Utilitari Publicae".

Bearbeitung des Werkes "Betrachtungen über die Einsamkeit" (Zürich 1756). Z. stellt darin die Einsamkeit als einen Ort der reflexiven u. emotionalen Bewährung des Menschen dar. "Es ist nicht nur dem Umfange nach Zimmermanns Hauptwerk, sondern auch deshalb, weil sich sein ganzes Wesen, seine Vorzüge wie seine Fehler darin am deutlichsten ausprägen voll der tiefsten und schönsten Betrachtungen verräth es wie in seiner Polemik so auch in der Lobpreisung der Natur deutlichen den Einfluß Rousseaus.." (vgl. dazu ADB). Enthalten sind die Kapitel 5-12 (Einige Nachtheile der Einsamkeit./Nachtheilige Einwirkung der Einsamkeit auf die Einbildungskraft./Nachtheilige Einwirkung der Einsamkeit auf die Leidenschaften, zumal bey Einsiedlern und Mönchen./Apologie gegen einen falschen Apostel der Einsamkeit./Allgemeine Vortheile der Einsamkeit./Vortheile der Einsamkeit f. den Geist./Vortheile der Einsamkeit f. das Herz./Uebersicht des Ganzen Reflexionen über Mystik u.

ZIMMERMANN Johann Georg (1728-1795) Mediziner, Philosoph u. Publizist. Z. studierte in Göttingen Medizin bei Albrecht von Haller, durch dessen Empfehlung er 1754 dann auch die Stelle als Stadtarzt von Brugg besetzte. In den 14 Jahren, die er in Brugg seinen Wirkungskreis hatte, fällt auch der Beginn seiner schriftstellerischen Tätigkeit. 1768 wurde er als königl. Leibarzt nach Hannover gerufen. Z. verkehrte mit den Geistesgrößen seiner Zeit. Lavater, Wieland, Gessner, Bodmer und Goethe waren seine Gesprächs- und Briefpartner. Allerdings ist überliefert, daß es durch seine Neigung zum Streit mit vielen Freunden zum Zerwürfnis kam. Z. starb krank und geistig umnachtet in Hannover. Seine letzten Wort waren "Laßt mich allein, ich sterbe!".

        Veduta del Ponte, e del Mausoleo, fabbricati da Elio Adriano Imp.re

      1756 - Acquaforte e bulino, 1756 circa, firmata in lastra in basso a destra. Dalla serie Le Antichità Romane, prima edizione del 1756 edita da Bouchard e Gravier. Meravigliosa prova, ricca di toni, impressa a inchiostro bruno su carta vergata coeva con la tipica filigrana del "doppio cerchio e giglio con lettere CB" (Robison 33), con pieni margini, esemplare in barbe ed in perfetto stato di conservazione. Henry Focillon, nel suo saggio del 1918, suppone che il Piranesi prepari ed incida le tavole per l’opera tra il 1750 ed il 1756, tuttavia, elementi architettonici fanno risalire alcune al 1746. In realtà le tavole più antiche utilizzate nella raccolta risalgono probabilmente ad anni ancora precedenti, come sembra suggerire sia l’estrema complessità dell’opera, legata ad un lunghissimo lavoro di preparazione e ricerca, sia l’oscillazione stilistica riscontrabile comparando le varie tavole. Ad ogni modo, la grandiosità delle Antichità Romane del Piranesi non sta solamente nel grande lavoro grafico prodotto dall’artista: l’opera risulta infatti fondamentale come innovazione metodologica nel settore dell’archeologia a lei contemporanea, con l’utilizzo di scritti che sono essenziali per comprendere il pensiero dell’autore e l’innovazione del metodo piranesiano. Si può quindi sostenere, come giustamente fa notare il Focillon, che l’artista veneziano fondi l’archeologia moderna. Questa innovazione comporta, però, un enorme stacco e una grande divergenza con il pensiero e la cultura ufficiale ed accademica del periodo - di derivazione anglosassone - causando enormi polemiche di cui Piranesi fu bersaglio, e il fiorire di una negativa aneddotica intorno alla sua persona, il cui scopo era quello di ristabilire l’egemonia minacciata della cultura "classica". Il principale pensiero espresso nelle Antichità Romane consiste nel documentare e conservare in effige un patrimonio monumentale che andava di giorno in giorno sgretolandosi, linea di condotta che andava contro l’atteggiamento culturale di amatori ed antiquari, il cui piacere era puramente estetico, non disdegnando all’occorrenza, l’asporto di frammenti anche vistosi di antichità a titolo di puro collezionismo o alla stregua di souvenir. La principale novità della sua impostazione, consiste nell’unificare in un solo momento le operazioni di scavo, di rilievo, le indagini strutturali e la misurazione con lo studio delle fonti letterarie, a cui egli fa riferimento diretto. Questo momento di unificazione è rappresentato dallo studio topografico, che unito alla tecnica di rilievo, alla conoscenza dei materiali e delle tecniche antiche, allo scavo ed al sopralluogo dava luce all’archeologia, ovvero lo studio della storia antica. Etching with engraving, 1756, signed at lower right. From the Antichità Romane, first edition by the French publisher Bouchard and Gravier in 1756. A great impression, printed with brown ink on contemporary laid, strong, paper with "double encircled fleur-de-lys with letter CB" watermark (Robison 33), with margins, perfect conditions. The first edition of this work, in four volumes, was published in Rome in 1756 at the printing-works of Angelo Rotili at the Massimo alle Colonne Palace, by Bouchard and Gravier, book-dealers and tradesmen located in Rome near the church of St. Marcel at the Via del Corso. This collection included a portrait of Piranesi, engraved by Felice Porziani, and a dedication to James Caulfield, count of Charlemont. This dedication was later abolished in the aftermath of a quarrel, described by Piranesi in his Lettere di Giustificazione [Letters of Justification] (1757), which also gave rise to three different versions of this first original edition (May 1756). These different versions are distinguishable from the title-page of the first volume, which initially was dedicated to the Irish aristocrat, then exhibited a cancelled dedication and coat of arms and, finally, bore a Latin motto written by the artist "Aevo Suo Posteri set Utilitari Publicae".

        A Voyage Round the World, in the Years MDCCXL, I, II, III, IV

      London: D. Browne, T. Osborne et al, 1756. Quarto. 42 folding engravings. Contemporary calf gilt. One of the landmark 18th-century English circumnavigations, made not so much for discovery and exploration but as an armed naval expedition to cut off Spanish supplies of wealth from South America after the outbreak of war between Britain and Spain in 1739. Indeed, Anson succeeded in doing this by taking a number of Spanish prize ships and a laden Manila galleon near the Philippines, but at heavy cost. Six of his fleet's vessels were sunk or wrecked on the South American coast or in rounding Cape Horn after their passage through the Strait of Le Maire, many men died of scurvy, and surviving crew were forced to litigate for their share of the prize money. Some of the fame of the expedition lies in the published accounts of survivors of Anson's ship Wager, wrecked off the Patagonian coast and vividly described by Bulkeley and Cummins, John Byron, Young, and Campbell. Anson's voyage laid the groundwork for the British voyages of exploration in the Pacific of the latter half of the 18th century, and Walter produced a masterpiece of descriptive travel that became the most popular book of maritime adventure of the time. Although generally accepted that the work was written by Walter, it seems to have been revised and edited by Benjamin Robins. Cox I p.49; Headland 109; Hill 1817; Sabin 101175. Rebacked, joints weak, some chipping to plate edges not affecting images, contents leaf sprung, some occasional pale staining.

        Sepolcro de' tre fratelli Curazj in Albano

      Roma 1756 - La tavola è la numero X del tomo III delle Antichità Romane, prima edizione del 1756 edita da Bouchard e Gravier. Meravigliosa prova, ricca di toni, impressa a inchiostro bruno su carta vergata coeva con la tipica filigrana del "doppio cerchio e giglio con lettere CB" (Robison 33), con pieni margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Nell'iscrizione in basso si legge : "Esso è erroneamente così detto, mentre abbiamo dagli antichii Scrittori essere stato presso la Fossa Clelia cinque miglia lonan da Roma, ove i Curiazi furono uccisi dagli Orazi". Il monumento raffigurato è infatti una tomba romana di tarda età repubblicana. La prima edizione dell’opera, in quattro tomi, fu pubblicata a Roma nel 1756 nella stamperia di Angelo Rotili a Palazzo Massimo alle Colonne, dai signori Bouchard e Gravier, librai e mercanti in Roma con sede presso San Marcello al Corso. La raccolta conteneva un ritratto del Piranesi, inciso da Felice Polanzani, e recava una dedica a James Caulfield conte di Charlemont, dedica poi eliminata in seguito ad un litigio.

Il contenuto della tavola è dichiarato in alto a sinitra: "Dichiarazione delle note della Tavola: A. Mura odierne di Roma B. Mura di Roma anteriori all'Imperatore Aureliano Aquedotto arcuato della Marcia, Tepula, e Giulia Aquedotto arcuato della Claudia e Anione Nuovo Archi Neroniani Archi Antoniniani Aquedotto sostruito Aquedotto sotterraneo Rivo sotterraneo, porzionario delle acque Circonferenza delle Regioni antiche di Roma Nota delle Vie antiche Le rimanenti note son dichiarate o nella Tavola, o nella Spiegazione consecutiva della medesima Piedi Antichi Romani" Le tre "figure" sono disegni tecnici che rappresentano le sezioni e il funzionamento degli antichi acquedotti. La tavola è la n. XXXVIII del tomo I delle Antichità Romane, prima edizione del 1756 edita da Bouchard e Gravier. Meravigliosa prova, ricca di toni, impressa a inchiostro bruno su carta vergata coeva con la tipica filigrana del "doppio cerchio e giglio con lettere CB" (Robison 33), con pieni margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. La prima edizione dell’opera, in quattro tomi, fu pubblicata a Roma nel 1756 nella stamperia di Angelo Rotili a Palazzo Massimo alle Colonne, dai signori Bouchard e Gravier, librai e mercanti in Roma con sede presso San Marcello al Corso. La raccolta conteneva un ritratto del Piranesi, inciso da Felice Polanzani, e recava una dedica a James Caulfield conte di Charlemont, dedica poi eliminata in seguito ad un litigio. Di questa edizione originale, che venne alla luce nel maggio del 1756, sono note tre diverse tirature, connesse con le vicende del litigio con lord Charlemont, vicende documentate dal Piranesi stesso nelle sue Lettere di Giustificazione del 1757. Le diverse tirature sono riconoscibili tra loro proprio nel frontespizio del primo tomo, quello originariamente dedicato al nobile inglese, che successivamente si presenta con dedica e stemma araldico abraso, quindi con l’aggiunta di una dedica dell’autore "Aevo Suo Posteri set Utilitari Publicae". Henry Focillon , nel suo saggio del 1918, suppone che il Piranesi prepari ed incida le tavole per l’opera tra il 1750 ed il 1756, tuttavia elementi architettonici fanno risalire talune al 1746. In realtà le tavole più antiche utilizzate nella raccolta risalgono probabilmente ad anni ancora precedenti, come sembra suggerire sia l’estrema complessità dell’opera, legata ad un lunghissimo lavoro di preparazione e ricerca, sia l’oscillazione stilistica riscontrabile comparando le varie tavole. La grandiosità delle Antichità Romane del Piranesi tuttavia non sta solamente nel grande lavoro grafico prodotto dall’artista; l’opera risulta infatti fondamentale come innovamento metodologico nel quadro dell’archeologia a lei contemporanea, con l’utilizzo di scritti che sono essenziali per comprendere il pensiero dell’autore e l’innovamento apportato dal metodo piranesiano. Si può quindi sostenere, come giustamente fa notare il Focillon, che l’artista veneziano sia il fondatore dell’archeologia moderna. Questa innovazione, comporta però un enorme stacco e una grande divergenza con il pensiero e la cultura ufficiale ed accademica del periodo, di origine anglosassone, provocando enormi polemiche di cui il Piranesi fu bersaglio, ed il fiorire di una malevola letteratura aneddotica intorno alla sua persona, il cui scopo era quello di ristabilire l’egemonia minacciata della cultura a cui reagiva. Il principale pensiero espresso nelle Antichità Romane consiste nel documentare e conservare in effige un patrimonio monumentale che andava di giorno in giorno sgretolandosi, linea di condotta che andava contro l’atteggiamento culturale di amatori ed antiquari, il cui piacere era puramente estetico, non disdegnando all’occorrenza l’asporto di frammenti di antichità, anche vistosi, a titolo di collezionismo o alla stregua di souvenir. La principale novità della sua impostazione consiste nell’unificare in un solo mome [Attributes: First Edition]

        Carte générale de la France faite en 1744.

      Ch. Picquet 1756 - CASSINI DE THURY, César-François. Carte générale de la France faite en 1744. (Paris, Ch. Picquet, 1756-1815). Quinze emboîtages recouverts de papier bleu marbré, étiquette de titre sur le dessus, le tout dans une malle en bois de l’époque à compartiments, avec titre en lettres peintes sur le dessus, et poignées de transport sur les côtés. 182 CARTES FINEMENT GRAVÉES SUR CUIVRE EN 181 FEUILLES ENTOILÉES, DANS SA MALLE EN BOIS DE L’EPOQUE COMPOSÉE DE 15 EMBOITAGES NUMEROTÉS. Impressionné par le travail cartographique réalisé lors de la Campagne de Flandre par César François Cassini de Thury, dit Cassini III (1714-1784), Louis XV le charge de réaliser la première carte géométrique du Royaume de France. A partir de 1760, César Cassini entreprend donc les levées à l’échelle d’ « 1 lieue pour 100 toises », soit 1/86400, s’appuyant sur une triangulation géodésique, réseau établi entre 1683 et 1744 par son père Jacques, dit Cassini II (1677-1756), et son grand-père Jean-Dominique, dit Cassini I (1625-1712). Les levées se termineront en 1789 avec son fils Jacques-Dominique, dit Cassini IV (1748-1845), qui a la « délicate » mission d’achever ce titanesque travail. Ce sont ainsi quatre générations de Cassini qui contribuèrent à la réalisation de cette carte. Sa publication fut retardée par les événements de la Révolution, du Consulat, de l’Empire, pour n’être achevée qu’en 1815, après également que de nombreuses corrections furent apportées aux planches (entre 1798 et 1812, notamment concernant les voies de communication). D'une extrême précision, la carte de Cassini est une véritable mine de renseignements sur la géographie de la France du XVIIIe. Tout y est noté : les différentes sortes de route, les villes, les châteaux, les villages, les lieus dits, les abbayes, les fermes, les calvaires, les paroisses, les moulins, les écueils, les cours d'eau, les étangs, les marais, les bois, . Assemblées, ces cartes représentent une France miniature de 11m50 sur 11m50. La carte numérotée 160 est jointe et entoilée avec la carte 131. Chaque carte est contrecollé sur du lin et comporte 2 étiquettes: l'une entièrement manuscrite, et l'autre imprimée et manuscrite. La carte n°3 était manquante. Elle a été rajoutée.

        North Sea antique chart - Mount and Page.

      ?A Chart of Part of the North Sea from the South Foreland to Burnham Flatts, and from Callis Schelling Isle??Copper engraving from ?The English Pilot Describing The Sea-Coasts, Capes, Head-Lands, Soundings, Sands, Shoals, Rocks and Dangers, The Bays, Roads, Harbours, Rivers and Ports in the Whole Northern Navigation?? published by W. and J. Mount, T. Page and Sons, London 1756. Coloured by a later hand. Size: 44 x 54 cm. The English Pilot was an important British sea-atlas published from 1671 to 1803. Initially published by John Seller, publication of the atlas changed hands periodically, with other publishers including Charles Price, John Thornton, and the Mount & Page firm. The charts from the English Pilot were intended as working charts so there was an effort to make them accurate, although predictably, many seamen complained that the charts were consistently out of date and that changes were slow to appear, a charge leveled at virtually every British, French and American Chart maker, including the respective governments of these nations. Ironically, it was in no small part due to the proprietary nature of the information included in the maps and sailing directions that there was a tendency for commercial pilots to pass the information from mariner to chart-maker more slowly than might otherwise have been the case, although the chart makers on the Thames and otherwise were undoubtedly reluctant to immediately make each and every necessary correction, for fear of undermining the economic viability of their businesses.

"In 1662, the newly formed 'Royal Society of London for Improving Natural Knowledge' was granted a charter to publish by King Charles II and on 6 March 1665, the first issue of Philosophical Transactions was published under the visionary editorship of Henry Oldenburg, who was also the Secretary of the Society. The first volumes of what was the world's first scientific journal were very different from today's journal, but in essence it served the same function; namely to inform the Fellows of the Society and other interested readers of the latest scientific discoveries. As such, Philosophical Transactions established the important principles of scientific priority and peer review, which have become the central foundations of scientific journals ever since." The early years of the Philosophical Transactions were not published yearly as today. The first twelve volumes were printed as abridged volumes from the years 1722 to 1756 and cover the Philosophical Transactions from its inception in 1662 to until 1750. This is volume ten, part II in this case (part I covered the first two parts, this volume parts III and IV as noted).

        A Voyage Round the World, in the Years MDCCXL, I, II, III, IV

      London: D. Browne, T. Osborne et al., 1756. Ninth edition. Rebacked, joints weak, some chipping to plate edges not affecting images, contents leaf sprung, some occasional pale staining. Quarto. 42 folding engravings. Contemporary calf gilt. One of the landmark 18th-century English circumnavigations, made not so much for discovery and exploration but as an armed naval expedition to cut off Spanish supplies of wealth from South America after the outbreak of war between Britain and Spain in 1739. Indeed, Anson succeeded in doing this by taking a number of Spanish prize ships and a laden Manila galleon near the Philippines, but at heavy cost. Six of his fleet's vessels were sunk or wrecked on the South American coast or in rounding Cape Horn after their passage through the Strait of Le Maire, many men died of scurvy, and surviving crew were forced to litigate for their share of the prize money. Some of the fame of the expedition lies in the published accounts of survivors of Anson's ship Wager, wrecked off the Patagonian coast and vividly described by Bulkeley and Cummins, John Byron, Young, and Campbell. Anson's voyage laid the groundwork for the British voyages of exploration in the Pacific of the latter half of the 18th century, and Walter produced a masterpiece of descriptive travel that became the most popular book of maritime adventure of the time. Although generally accepted that the work was written by Walter, it seems to have been revised and edited by Benjamin Robins. Cox I p.49; Headland 109; Hill 1817; Sabin 101175.

        A New and Accurate Description of the Present Great Roads and the Principal Cross Roads of England and Wales, Commencing at London and continuing to the farthest Parts of the Kingdom...

      London, England: R. & J. Dodsley, 1756. First [and only?] edition. In contemporary [?] or very early full leather binding of brown calf. Boards present but completely and cleanly detached. The binding much rubbed and dessicated, especially along the spine. The hubbed spine bearing, in blind-stamp, "Roads of England." Also, at the spine tail, in much-rubbed gilt, the date 1756. The firmly bound text block retains great integrity. 7 x 4.5 inches. On rag content, laid paper. With title page, 6 unnumbered pages, 168 and lxiv numbered pages. Title page states, Price Bound Four Shillings. With a handsome tail-piece engraving at p. 161 and at p. xl. Tipped in to the FEP opposite page lxiv is a large fold-out B&W map with decorative cartouche, Kitchin's most Accurate Map of the Roads of England and Wales: with the Distances by the Mile-Stones, and other most exact Admensurations between Town & Town. Map measures 14.5 x 14.25 inches (37 x 36 cm). The map in remarkable condition; just a hint of age-toning. Book's pastedowns and opposite FEPs with glue off-settings. Front pastedown with the handsome armorial/pictorial bookplate of R.P.L. Booker. A blank front FEP with the inscription, likely in his own hand, "R. P. Lee Booker, Eton" in very small neat ink writing. Preliminaries lightly to moderately age toned. Tiny tear to middle of p. 15. Else a rather clean copy. Downgraded to Good Plus chiefly on account of the poor state of the binding. Deemed worthy of custom rebinding or restoration. This is a study of the then-present principal roads of England and Wales, with detailed descriptions of way-stations, landmarks, distances, &c. Includes a section about the itinerary of Antoninus and Roman stations in England. Perhaps the most remarkable and significant feature of the book is the fold-out map, a map that seldom survives in extant copies of the book. A rare book in any condition. R. P. Lee Booker [died 1922?] was educated at Winchester and New College, Oxford, where he gained a first class in Mods. and a second class in Lit. Hum. in 1887. No later than 1888 he was appointed to the faculty at Eton College, Windsor, eventually serving as a House Master. Booker apparently served in WWI. By 1920 Booker had left Eton in hopes that he would find suitable employment elsewhere, though he made some critical remarks about the education system. He commented on the difficulty of getting his work printed. Booker was exceptionally interested in English antiquity, archaeology and history. He was a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries [FSA]. Specific interests apparently included: Prehistoric monuments and earthworks; Roman monuments and Roman earthworks; English ecclesiastical monuments; English secular monuments. In that regard, and commencing around 1908, he was active in contributing extensively to an inventory of the ancient and historical monuments and constructions connected with or illustrative of the contemporary culture, civilization and conditions of life of the people in England from the earliest times to the year 1700.. Presumed First Edition. Disbound. Good Plus. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Association Copy.

The first volumes of what was the world's first scientific journal were very different from today's journal, but in essence it served the same function; namely to inform the Fellows of the Society and other interested readers of the latest scientific discoveries. As such, Philosophical Transactions established the important principles of scientific priority and peer review, which have become the central foundations of scientific journals ever since."The early years of the Philosophical Transactions were not published yearly as today. The first twelve volumes were printed as abridged volumes from the years 1722 to 1756 and cover the Philosophical Transactions from its inception in 1662 to until 1750. This is volume ten, part II in this case (part I covered the first two parts, this volume parts III and IV as noted).

        North Sea antique chart - Mount and Page.

      ?A Chart of Part of the North Sea from the South Foreland to Burnham Flatts, and from Callis Schelling Isle??Copper engraving from ?The English Pilot Describing The Sea-Coasts, Capes, Head-Lands, Soundings, Sands, Shoals, Rocks and Dangers, The Bays, Roads, Harbours, Rivers and Ports in the Whole Northern Navigation?? published by W. and J. Mount, T. Page and Sons, London 1756. Coloured by a later hand. Size: 44 x 54 cm. The English Pilot was an important British sea-atlas published from 1671 to 1803. Initially published by John Seller, publication of the atlas changed hands periodically, with other publishers including Charles Price, John Thornton, and the Mount & Page firm. The charts from the English Pilot were intended as working charts so there was an effort to make them accurate, although predictably, many seamen complained that the charts were consistently out of date and that changes were slow to appear, a charge leveled at virtually every British, French and American Chart maker, including the respective governments of these nations. Ironically, it was in no small part due to the proprietary nature of the information included in the maps and sailing directions that there was a tendency for commercial pilots to pass the information from mariner to chart-maker more slowly than might otherwise have been the case, although the chart makers on the Thames and otherwise were undoubtedly reluctant to immediately make each and every necessary correction, for fear of undermining the economic viability of their businesses. Price: ?975,- (excl. VAT/BTW).

        ALL THE ORATIONS OF DEMOSTHENES, PRONOUNCED TO EXCITE THE ATHENIANS AGAINST PHILIP, KING OF MACEDON. Translated into English; Digested and Connected, So as to form a regular History of the Progress of the Macedonian Power: with Notes Historical and Critical.

      London W. Johnston 1756 - The First Edition of Thomas Leland's acclaimed translation into English. With a large multi-folding map of the geography of Magna Graecia. 4to, handsomely bound in fine three-quarter polished calf over marbled boards to contemporary style, the spine with raised bands blind ruled, contrasting red and green morocco lettering labels gilt lettered and ruled in gilt, a rare, untrimmed copy still with the printer's edges. [xxiv], [6], 172, [3] pp. A very handsome and beautifully preserved copy, edges untrimmed, the pages crisp and clean and unpressed. FIRST EDITION OF THOMAS LELAND'S ACCLAIMED TRANSLATION OF THIS GREAT CLASSICAL WORK. Demosthenes particularly, is considered to embody the model of the ancient political orator, and might well be regarded as the greatest orator of all time. He began as a speech writer and worked his way to the position of prominent politician, earning the admiration of the Greeks by constantly urging resistance to the encroachments of Philip II of Macedon as he threatened Athens. He played a great and important role in negotiating public policy towards the Phillippic threat in the following years. A prolific orator and statesman, sixty-one of his speeches have survived and many are translated here into English. Especially significant are the inclusion of his speeches regarding the Phillippic threat. Starting in 352 BC, Demosthenes began a series of speeches to excite Athenians against the military encroachment of Philip, King of Macedonia (and father of Alexander the Great). Though ultimately defeated, Demosthenes continued to use his great oratory powers to fight against the Macedonians for fifteen years. Thomas Leland, eminent historian and fellow of Trinity College Dublin published this translation from the Latin in 1756. Leland had earlier published THE HISTORY OF THE LIFE AND REIGN OF PHILIP, KING OF MACEDON, an important work on early Macedonia and Greece (copies available). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
