De Stadhouderlijke Binderij in Den Haag was de grootste en belangrijkste binderij die er was in Nederland in de 18e eeuw. De binderij accepteerde elk soort werk en maakte de mooiste ontwerpen die in haar tijd bekend waren in het hele land. De binderij bezat een enorme hoeveelheid gereedschap en maakte gebruik van de traditionele methoden van binden. De binderij had contact met uitgevers in en buiten Den Haag en werkte voor vele verzamelaars, waaronder belangrijke en invloedrijke mensen. Naast prijsbanden en banden voor verzamelaars, maakte de binderij ook banden die gezien kunnen worden als luxe banden voor uitgevers en boekverkopers. De stempels die gebruikt zijn voor deze banden zijn zeer divers, met in het midden van de platten een centraal ornament met aan de onder- en bovenkant een stempel met 3 eikels, daaromheen een dubbele decoratieve/geometrische rand, waarvan elke hoek aan de binnen- en buitenkant met de drie eikels gestempeld, dit alles in een brede decoratieve rand die bijna de gestempelde zijkant van de platten raakt. Ook de ruggen van de banden zijn tussen en op de ribben met goud bestempeld met een decoratief bloemenmotief, waarbij een vak is opengelaten voor de titel.

(With an engraved frontispiece by S. Fokke, after A. Schouwman and a folding portrait of Willem Muilman after H.J. Serin. The First Stadholder Bindery in The Hague was the largest and most important binding workshop in existence in The Netherlands in the eighteenth century. It accepted every kind of work and made the most beautiful designs known in its time in the whole country. It owned an enormous quantity of tools, and kept traditional methods. The bindery maintained contacts with publishers in and beyond The Hague and worked for many collectors, some of them important and influential. Apart from presentation bindings and bindings for collectors it also made bindings which can be considered luxury publishers' or booksellers' bindings. The gilding used on both bindings is very diverse, in the middle of the covers a central ornament with at the top and bottom a triple acorn, surrounded by a double ornamental/geometrical border, from which each inner and outer corner with a triple acorn, altogether within a broad ornamental border which is almost touching the gilt boardedges. The spines are decorated with floral gilding. Bound with rich chintz endpapers with a floral pattern with apples and pears in green, red and purple.

        Roma-sette chiese, Seutter M., 1730 old colours

      Seutter Matthäus, 1678 - 1757 - Roma-sette chiese, Seutter M., 1730 old colours Copperengraving, edited by Matthäus Seutter, Augsburg, circa. 1730: "LE SETTE CHIESE DI ROMA. DIE SIEBEN KIRCHEN VON ROM.", old colours, one old restored crack on below margin, contemporary colours, little brownish. Unter den sieben Pilgerkirchen versteht man diejenigen Kirchen der Stadt Rom, deren Besuch bei Pilgerreisen in die Stadt eine besondere Rolle spielt. Sie sind innerhalb eines Tages zu Fuß zu erreichen, dem Pilger werden für diese Reise Ablässe versprochen. Bis 2000 handelte es sich dabei um die vier römischen Basilicae maiores und drei Basilicae minores: San Pietro in Vaticano (Petersdom), San Paolo fuori le Mura, San Sebastiano fuori le mura, San Giovanni in Laterano, Santa Croce in Gerusalemme, San Lorenzo fuori le mura und Santa Maria Maggiore. Anstelle von San Sebastiano fuori le mura wurde im Heiligen Jahr 2000 von Papst Johannes Paul II. das Santuario della Madonna del Divino Amore unter den sieben aufgenommen. Die Reihenfolge der Besuche war nicht vorgeschrieben, die obenstehende war jedoch aufgrund der Lage der Kirchen die verbreitetste. Beim Besuch der sieben Kirchen wurden Rompilgerführer benutzt. Nachdem diese Tradition über die Jahre mehr und mehr vernachlässigt worden war, belebte sie der heilige Philipp Neri im 16. Jahrhundert wieder. Dieser hatte sich der Aufgabe verschrieben, das religiöse Leben in Rom zu erneuern. Er lud mehrmals im Jahr, insbesondere zu Karneval und zu Ostern, die Bevölkerung von Rom und die Pilger in der ewigen Stadt ein, auf seiner Wallfahrt in die sieben Hauptkirchen der Stadt teilzunehmen. Zunächst folgte ihm die einfache Bevölkerung, während er später auch Adlige und hohe Geistliche für seine Sache gewinnen konnte. Eine Repräsentation der sieben Kirchen in der Malerei stellt der sogenannte Basilikazyklus dar, der in den Jahren 1499–1504 für die Dominikanerinnen des Augsburger Katharinenklosters entstand und symbolische Abbildungen der Kirchen enthält. The Seven Pilgrim Churches of Rome are seven ancient and major churches in Rome, central to a religious pilgrimage to the city. The are listed in the following order in the guide by Franzini (1595): San Giovanni Laterano, St Peter's, San Paolo fuori le mura, Santa Maria Maggiore, San Lorenzo fuori le mura, San Sebastiano, and Santa Croce in Gerusalemme.[1] Rome has for centuries been a beacon for travelers. As the home of the Pope and the Catholic curia, as well as the locus of a many sites and relics of worship related to apostles, saints and Christian martyrs; Rome had long been a destination for pilgrims. Periodically, some were propelled to travel to Rome from the spiritual benefits, including indulgences accrued through a papally sanctioned Jubilee. These indulgences required a visit to specific churches. The churches include the four patriarchal basilicas: St. Peter's Basilica Basilica of St. John Lateran Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls Santa Maria Maggiore They also include three minor basilicas: San Lorenzo fuori le mura Santa Croce in Gerusalemme Santuario della Madonna del Divino Amore The last of these was added by Pope John Paul II for the Great Jubilee of 2000, replacing San Sebastiano fuori le mura. However, many pilgrims still prefer the pre-2000 seven basilicas and so also attend St. Sebastian's in addition to the ones required for the indulgence. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Transylvaniae Principatus, Siebenbürgen, 1740, Seutter Matthäus

      Seutter Matthäus, 1678 - 1757 - Transylvaniae Principatus, Siebenbürgen, 1740, Seutter Matthäus: "TRANSYLVANIAE PRINCIPATUS IN QUINQUE NATIONES DIVISUS. per MATTHAEUM SEUTTER,." Altkolorierte (verlagskolorit) Karte von Siebenbürgen und Umgebung in ausgezeichnetem Erhaltungszustand, sauber und nahezu fleckenfrei. Kleiner hinterlegter Wurmgang am rechten Ausssensteg (ausserhalb der Karte). Blattmaß: 53x62 cm. Mit Temeswar/Temeschburg im Südwesten, Hermannstadt und Kronstadt. Im Nordosten Moldavien. Siebenbürgen ist unter folgenden Bezeichnungen bekannt: Die rumänische Bezeichnung ist Ardeal oder Transilvania. Die ungarische Bezeichnung ist Erdély (ung. erd?-élve ‚jenseits der Wälder‘). Die lateinische Benennung ist Transsilvania abgeleitet von trans silvana ‚Jenseits der Wälder‘ Die auf dieser Grundlage eingedeutschte Bezeichnung Transsilvanien bzw. Transsylvanien war in mittelalterlichen Dokumenten gebräuchlich. Die Herkunft des deutschen Namens Siebenbürgen ist nicht abschließend geklärt. Vermutungen gehen dahin, ihn auf die sieben von deutschen Siedlern (den Siebenbürger Sachsen) gegründeten Städte zurückzuführen (Kronstadt, Schäßburg, Mediasch, Hermannstadt, Mühlbach, Bistritz und Klausenburg). Die damit verbundenen Stühle (ung. szék, Einheiten der eigenen Gerichtsbarkeit – jeder Stuhl besaß einen Königsrichter, der alleine dem ungarischen König unterstellt war) sind möglicherweise Teil der Namensgebung. Der Name ist zunächst in deutschen Quellen aus dem 13. Jhd. als Septum urbium, Terra septem castrorum und ähnlichen Varianten verzeichnet. In deutscher Niederschrift heißt es Ende des 13. Jhd. erstmals Siebenbuergen und bezeichnete damals nur den Bereich der Sieben Stühle als administrative Einheiten oder Gebietskörperschaften der Hermannstädter Provinz. Erst später hat sich der Begriff räumlich erweitert und umfasste schließlich denselben Raum wie Ardeal und Erdély. Siebenbürgen bildet geografisch das Zentrum und den Nordwesten Rumäniens. Von den südlicheren (Walachei) und östlicheren (Moldau und Bukowina) Landesteilen wird Siebenbürgen durch die Ostkarpaten und die Transsilvanischen Alpen (Südkarpaten) getrennt, die zusammen den südlichen Karpatenbogen bilden. Nach Westen hin scheidet ein Teil der Westrumänischen Karpaten, das Apuseni-Gebirge, Siebenbürgen vom Kreischgebiet ab. Auch Teile des heutigen Rumänien, die bis 1918/1920 zu Ungarn gehörten (das Kreischgebiet, die Region Sathmar, der südliche Teil des ehemaligen Komitats Maramuresch sowie der rumänische Teil des Banats), werden manchmal irrtümlicherweise zu Siebenbürgen hinzugerechnet, so dass es oft größer als das historische Gebiet dargestellt wird.

To Gaspard-Francois-Xavier Gaufridi (Gaufridy, 1757-1799), de Sade's longtime legal advisor, describing a complicated legal and financial incident involving six francs, the knowledge of de Sade's family, and a reimbursement: "Votre lettre m'a extremement touche mon cher Gofredi, je vois avec douleur tous les chagrins qu'ont vous donne et je suis pret a trouver les moyens de les reparer.

Vous saurez bientot de quoi il est question. Sade" (punctuation added).

Binding half mottled brown sheepskin contemporary. Back smooth decorated with four finials, roulette tail and head. As Exhibit tan morocco, black wax piece volume number. Corners bumped. Volume number of rooms of volumes I and II rubbed. Good copy. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition, la première ayant paru en 1721, elle ne contenait que 6 figures contre 8 sur papier fort dans cette édition. Le troisième volume qui a été adjoint au Conte du tonneau et qui contient divers traités (L'art de ramper en poesie, Le traité des dissensions) a été ajouté plus tard. Certaines planches fort curieuses de ce recueil sont très appréciées, notamment celle de la fameuse batailles des livres. La traduction est de Van Effen. Pages de titre en rouge et noir. Reliure en demi basane brune marbrée d'époque. Dos lisse orné de 4 fleurons, roulette en queue et tête. Pièce de titre de maroquin havane, pièce de tomaison de cire noire. Coins émoussés. Pièces de tomaison des tomes I et II frottées. Bon exemplaire. Le Conte du tonneau, ainsi que les autres traités sont des écrits satiriques, dont l'auteur s'était fait une sorte de spécialité. Le Conte du tonneau traite en particulier des dissensions entre les chrétiens, cet écrit vaudra par ailleurs à Swift l'impossibilité d'accéder à l'évêché de la cathédrale dont il était le doyen. L'ensemble de ces pamphlets satiriques sont avant tout des écrits du début de la carrière littéraire de Swift, ce n'est que 20 plus tard qu'il composera Les aventures de Gulliver. Le style libre, humoristique, décalé, ampoulé et irrévérencieux qui les caractérise est devenu avec le temps une des marques les plus sûr de l'esprit anglais. NB : Cet ouvrage est disponible à la librairie sur demande sous 48 heures.

        The principles of agriculture and vegetation

      Edinburgh: printed for G. Hamilton & J. Balfour. 1757. 8vo., viii + 179 + (1)pp., in a very good mid-20th century binding of half calf over marbled boards, spine lettered in gilt by Sangorski and Sutcliffe> in London, uncut. A fine copy. First edition: second printing (a reissue of the sheets of the 1756 1st ed., with a new title-page). Rothamsted p.75 (where it calls this 1757 printing the 1st ed.). Goldsmiths 9219. Higgs 1391. Only later editions in Perkins. An important contribution to agricultural science which was described by Professor Launcelot Hogben (Science and the Citizen>) as a 'pioneer work that bore fruit in the lectures of Humphrey Davy'. An Edinburgh doctor and 'close friend of Dr. J. Black, professor of chemistry at Glasgow, Home set out to discover 'how far chemistry will go in settling the principles of agriculture', and carried out pot experiments to discover the best types of fertilizers, though his interest in chemistry was not confined to agriculture. He perceived that there were two ways of investigating plant chemistry - the one to find out what the plant contained; the other pot experiments, and he did valuable work, but with a wide margin of error. Sir John Russell, in Soil Conditions and Plant Growth,> says: 'The book is a great advance on anything that had gone before it, not only because it recognizes that plant nutrition depends on several factors, but because it indicates so clearly the two methods to be followed in studying the problem - pot cultures and plant analysis. The problem, indeed, was carried as far as was possible until further advances were made in plant physiology and chemistry.' Home made a very real contribution to agricultural science.' [G.E. Fussell, More old English farming books,> pp.36-7].

Including (with their own divisional titles): [Chappelow, Leonard]. An account . of the life of Mahomet, and: Occkley, Simon (trans). Sentences of Ali[,] son-in-law of Mahomet, .Third edition.

      Cambridge, printed for Anne Ockley, by permission of Henry Lintot, 1757. - 2 volumes. 8vo. [2], XXI, [29], 80, 339, [21]; [4], LVIII, "356" [= 358], [12] pp. With folding engraved plate. Contemporary calf. Rebacked, using the original spine-labels and new brown endpapers. Third edition of Ockley's most famous work, presenting Islamic history from 632 to 705, based on Arabic sources. "One of the most important steps in the introduction of Arab culture to Europe was the decision to use Islamic sources in order to write a history of the Arabs. This step was taken by Simon Ockley. It is based mainly on a manuscript in Oxford [Bodleian Library] wrongly attributed to the historian of the eighth century, al-Waqidi, but in fact composed at the time of the Crusades. Ockley accepted al-Waqidi's authorship, but was also acquainted with other historians such as Ibn Duqmaq, Ibn Abd Rabbah, al-Suyuti and Abu al-Fida" (Hamilton). It was first published in one volume in 1708 as The conquest of Syria, Persia, and Aegypt by the Saracens, dealing with Islamic history under the first three caliphs. Ten years later Ockley published a continuation entitled The history of the Saracens, continuing the history from the fourth caliph to the Umayyad 'Abd al-Malik (656-705). The present edition, published for the benefit of Ockley's widow Anne, was augmented with a Life of Mahomet, sometimes ascribed to Roger Long, but most likely written by Leonard Chappelow. - With a 1914 bookplate on pastedown with the owner's monogram "HJK", the motto "semper fidelis" and an open book with "Poles 1913". In 1658 Pope Alexander granted the Polish city of Lwow (now Lviv in Ukraine) the use of the motto "semper fidelis" in recognition of their resistance to the spread of Islam. In 1913 the Akademische Verbindung Semper Fidelis in Luzern, Switzerland, celebrated the 50th anniversary of its foundation. So the unidentified (Polish?) HJK may have been associated with Lviv and/or that student society. Some minor browning and in 1 leaf a marginal tear, but still in good condition. The binding is rebacked as noted, but otherwise good. ESTC T134350; Gay, Bibl. de l'Afrique et l'Arabe 98; cf. Blackmer 1216 (1st ed.); Hamilton, Europe and the Arab world 37 (1st ed); for background information: Arberry, "The pioneer: Simon Ockley", in: Arberry (ed.) Oriental Essays (1997), pp. 11-47.

(des Starken) († 1. Februar 1733). The War of the Polish Succession (1733–1738) was a major European war for princes' possessions sparked by a Polish civil war over the succession to Augustus II, King of Poland that other European powers widened in pursuit of their own national interests. France and Spain, the two Bourbon powers, attempted to check the power of the Austrian Habsburgs in western Europe, as did the Kingdom of Prussia; whilst Saxony and Russia mobilized to support the eventual Polish victor. The slight amount of fighting in Poland resulted in the accession of Augustus III, who in addition to Russia and Saxony, was politically supported by the Habsburgs. The war's major military campaigns occurred outside Poland. The Bourbons, supported by Charles Emmanuel III of Sardinia, moved against isolated Habsburg territories. In the Rhineland France successfully took the Duchy of Lorraine, and in Italy Spain regained control over the kingdoms of Naples and Sicily (lost in the War of the Spanish Succession), while territorial gains in northern Italy were limited despite bloody campaigning. Great Britain's unwillingness to support Habsburg Austria demonstrated major cracks in the Anglo-Austrian Alliance and may have contributed to Austria's military failures. Although a preliminary peace was reached in 1735, the war was formally ended with the Treaty of Vienna (1738) in which Augustus III was confirmed as king of Poland and his opponent Stanis?aw Leszczy?ski (who had received virtually no foreign military support) was awarded the Duchy of Lorraine. Francis Stephen, the duke of Lorraine, was given the Grand Duchy of Tuscany in compensation for the loss of Lorraine. The Duchy of Parma went to Austria whereas Charles of Parma took the crowns of Naples and Sicily, resulting in territorial gains for the Bourbons. Poland also gave up claims to Livonia and direct control over the Duchy of Courland and Semigallia, which, although remaining a Polish fief, was not integrated into Poland proper, and came under strong Russian influence.

        Four Dissertations

      London: for A. Millar,, 1757. I. The Natural History of Religion. II. Of the Passions. III. Of Tragedy. IV. Of the Standard of Taste. Duodecimo (159 × 98 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, red morocco label, double gilt rules, small gilt centre ornaments to spine. Housed in a burgundy flat back cloth solander box. Ownership inscriptions on front free endpaper and pastedown: William Nasmith, London, 19 March 1757; indecipherable initials, dated 6 June 1867; Tet Htoot [Burmese historian] from R. C. Trevelyan [English poet and translator], Christmas 1941. A little neat restoration to spine ends, few stains to front cover, endleaves tanned at margin from turn-ins, but a very good copy. First edition, with the half-title and the dedication, the first word on p. 9 is "ative" instead of the corrected "lative"; the other typographical error on p. 131 is corrected to "lancing". Cancels C12 and D1 and the omission of K5-K8 agree with the description of Todd, p. 200. These essays were offered by Hume to his publisher in June 1755 for 50 guineas. For a full account of the publishing history, with the suppression of one essay, its initial replacement with two alternative ones, which were then in turn replaced by an entirely new one, see Jessop, pages 33-35.
