        The history of the Saracens. Containing the lives of Abubeker, Omar, Othman, Ali, Hasan, Moawiyab I. [and 5 more], the immediate Successors of Mahomet. 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.

AUF WUNSCH ÜBERSENDEN WIR ZUSÄTZLICHE BILDER. Aus ADB, online: " Seutter: Matthäus S. (auch Seuter), Kupferstecher und Kartograph, wurde 1678 als Sohn des Goldarbeiters Matthias S. und der Bierbrauerstochter Helene Geiselmeir zu Augsburg geboren. Seine Eltern bestimmten ihn ursprünglich zum Bierbrauer, er setzte es aber durch, daß er bei J. B. Homann in Nürnberg das Landkartenstechen erlernen durfte. Bereits 1707, in welchem Jahre er sich zum ersten Male verheirathete (1708 und 1717 heirathete er zum zweiten und dritten Male), finden wir ihn als selbständigen Kupferstecher zu Augsburg ansässig. Binnen kurzer Zeit gelang es ihm, seine dortigen Vorgänger [71] und Concurrenten im Landkartenstich, Joh. Stridbeck und Jer. Wolf, besonders in Bezug aus Reichhaltigkeit und Mannigfaltigkeit des kartographischen Verlags zu überholen und den Landkartenhandel, der durch die kriegerischen Zeiten begünstigt wurde, im Großen zu betreiben. Seinen kaufmännischen Erfolg bezeugt der 1723 abgeschlossene Kauf des Hauses D 261 (St. Annagasse), seinen wissenschaftlichen der Titel „kaiserlicher Geograph", den ihm gegen 1730 der Kaiser für die Dedication seines „großen Atlas" verlieh. Er starb 1757. – Aus seiner Officin sind bis zu diesem Jahr gegen 400 Blätter hervorgegangen, die zum großen Theil von ihm selbst, im übrigen von seinem Schwiegersohn (seit 1740) Tobias Konrad Lotter, dem Kupferstecher Andreas Silbereisen und seinem Sohn Albrecht Karl S. gestochen sind. Ungefähr 250 davon sind Landkarten, gegen 100 Pläne und Ansichten von Städten, der Rest chronologische Tafeln, Stammbäume, Tafeln zur Erklärung des See- und Kriegswesens, endlich Jak. Brucker’s „Geschichte der Philosophie" in 6 Tabellen und verschiedene „Curiosa". Sämmtliche Blätter des Verlags, so wie sie in den verschiedenen Jahren gerade vorhanden waren, bildeten unter gelegentlicher Zuhülfenahme von Homännischen und anderen Karten Seutters „großen Atlas" (ohne Jahr), während die Hauptkarten zu kleineren Atlanten unter besonderen Titeln zusammengestellt wurden; bekannt sind: „Atlas geographicus" 1725, mit 46 Karten; „Atlas compendiosus", o. J., mit 20 Karten; „Atlas compendiosus scholasticus" o. J., mit 26 Karten; „Atlas novus indicibus instructus", Wien und Augsburg, um 1730 mit 25, um 1735 mit 50 in Buchstabenquadrate eingetheilten Landkarten und dazu gehörigen vom kaiserl. Hofkriegsagenten Matth. Roth angefertigten Ortsregistern; „Atlas minor" (4°), o. J., mit 50 Karten. Jedem dieser Atlanten ist außer dem erwähnten (gedruckten) Titel noch ein „gemaltes" Titelblatt mit der östlichen Erdhälfte und allegorischen Figuren vorgesetzt, welches ihn als „Atlas novus sive tabulae geographicae totius orbis faciem exhibentes .", o. J., bezeichnet, und zumeist ist auch eine kurzgefaßte, mathematisch-physikalische „Einleitung zu dem so anmuthig als nutzlichen Studio der Geographie" (lat. oder deutsch) beigefügt. – Die große Mehrzahl der Blätter sind Copien oder unwesentliche Veränderungen holländischer und französischer, aber auch Homännischer Originale; nach Manier und Inhalt den Homännischen Karten auf das genaueste gleichend wurden sie, wie d [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Printed Admiralty order regarding venereal disease amongst sailors, signed by Anson and others

      London: Office of the Admiralty, 1757. Folio, 6 pages plus integral blank; folded to docket size with manuscript annotation "Admiralty New Instructions relating to Surgeons"; a bit rubbed but very good condition indeed. A scarce and desirable relic of eighteenth-century naval life: an official printed order from the Admiralty concerning the treatment of venereal disease amongst seamen, signed by three Admirals including the famous privateer and Pacific voyager George Anson.The order concerns the treatment of venereal disease by navy surgeons, ordering that some 15 shillings be deducted from the wages of each sailor to cover the cost incurred by the Navy. Gonorrhoea and syphilis were the bane of naval life, and this document laments both the spread of disease and seemingly impossible task of curbing the adventures of men during their time on shore: 'Having taken into consideration the great charge upon the seamen and others serving in the fleet, for Cure of Venereal Distempers, and that the same does not answer the desired effect of punishing to such a Degree, as to prevent the Men from running the Risque of getting those Distempers'The document is fully signed "Anson", followed by the signatures of two other Admirals (Forbes and Stanley).

The paper covering the boards has been cut adjacent to the spine to a scalloped or undulating pattern, to create the impression of a turned balustrade when the covers are opened. The top and bottom panels of the spine are longer than the middle four, and the second and third have darkened compartments for lettering and numbering. ESTC notes: "A very free adaptation by Pierre Mathurin de L'Ecluse des Loges". Charlotte Lennox's translation was first published in London and Dublin in 1751 as a 12mo, then in London in 1756 as a three volume 4to and this is the first 8vo edition. The dedication to the Duke of Newcastle is signed by Lennox but it is said to have been written by Samuel Johnson (see Hazen, Samuel Johnson's Prefaces and Dedications, pp.110-116. With the armorial bookplate Francis Eyre (1732-1804) of Warkworth, Northamptonshire and a small label printed with the number 47. The Gentleman's Magazine for 1804 described him as "A Roman catholic gentleman of Warkworth Castle in Northamptonshire" and the author of some controversial pamphlets, including A few Remarks on the History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, relative chiefly to the two last chapters (1778), A Short Essay on the Christian Religion, &c (1795) and A Letter to the Rev. Mr. Ralph Churton (1795). In 1755 he married Maria Francesca Giulielma Radclyffe, the daughter of the Countess of Newburgh.

        THE HISTORY OF THE PROVINCE OF NEW-YORK, FROM THE FIRST DISCOVERY TO THE YEAR M.DCC.XXXII. TO WHICH IS ANNEXED, A DESCRIPTION OF THE COUNTRY, WITH A SHORT ACCOUNT OF THE INHABITANTS, THEIR TRADE, RELIGIOUS AND POLITICAL STATE, AND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE COURTS OF JUSTICE IN THAT COLONY

      London: Printed for Thomas Wilcox, 1757.. xii,255pp. plus folding double-page plate. Quarto. Modern morocco, spine and inner dentelles gilt. Preliminary leaves repaired at corners and reinforced. Folding plate reinforced, small clean tear along one fold. Light foxing, age toning, and occasional soiling. A good copy. In a cloth slipcase. This is the first edition of the first history of New York, based largely on the works of Charlevoix and Colden's HISTORY OF THE FIVE NATIONS.... Smith also drew from the journals of the Assembly and the Legislative Council. He was a graduate of Yale who became a distinguished New York lawyer and eventually justice of the province. A Loyalist during the Revolution, Smith moved to Canada at the war's conclusion, and there became a chief justice. This history covers the period up to 1736. Smith wrote a continuation which remained in manuscript form until it was published by the New-York Historical Society in 1826. "Within the period subsequent to the English Revolution, Smith is still without a successful rival. This work ranks with Stith's VIRGINIA and Hutchinson's MASSACHUSETTS, as one of the worthiest examples of historical literature produced in later colonial times" - Larned. A foundation New York item.
