        Thesaurus Rerum Suevicarum seu Dissertationum Selectarum Volumen Quartum de Rebus et Antiquitatibus Civitatum Imperialium in Suevia cum Supplemento ad Bibliothecam Scriptorum Rerum Suevicarum et Repertorio Universali. (apart)

      Lindau, Otto, 1760 - XLIV, 663 S. Einband berieben, bestoßen und teilweiser Verlust des Oberflächenleders auf den Deckeln sowie am Rücken. Innen gelegentlich etwas fleckig. Farbstiftunterstreichungen im Inhaltsverzeichnis S. XLI-XLIV. Insgesamt recht gut. VD 18 80337155-001. Graesse VI, 2, 428. "Wegelin: Johann Reinhard W., Bürgermeister von Lindau und Historiker. W. entstammt einer im Schwäbischen und Elsässischen weit verbreiteten, alten und angesehenen Familie. Er ist geboren am 21. April 1689 in Lindau als Sohn des Bürgermeisters Johann Christoph W. und dessen Frau Felicitas geb. Caspar. Seine erste Ausbildung erhielt er am Lyceum in Lindau. 1707 bezog er die Universität Jena, wo er Philosophie, Mathematik, Jurisprudenz und Geschichte studirte. 1712 griff er in das bekannte „bellum Lindaviense" mit einer Schrift ein, deren langathmiger Titel lautet: „De S. R. I. lib. civitatis Lindaviensis praerogativa antiquitatis prae illustri D. Virg. coenobio, ejusdem famosi diplomatis Ludoviciani falsitate contra iniqua Maximiliani Rafleri S. J. nuperae vindicationis argumenta denuo retecta", und der Schreiben von Leibniz und von Wegelin’s Universitätslehrer B. G. Struv angefügt waren. Um seinen Horizont zu erweitern, unternahm W. eine Reise ins Ausland, die ihn zunächst nach Genf führte. Von hier aber wurde er als sachsen-coburgischer Legationssecretär auf Empfehlung des Reichshofraths Freiherrn v. Lyncker nach Wien berufen, wo er bald zum sachsen-coburgischen Rath und Agenten beim Reichshofrath aufrückte. Er bekleidete diese Stelle, bis ihn 1719 die kleine Reichsstadt Isny zum Rathsconsulenten und Kanzleiverwalter ernannte. Als solcher hat er es verstanden, das arg gestörte Einvernehmen zwischen Obrigkeit und Bürgerschaft mit solchem Erfolge wieder herzustellen, daß ihm auch die Reichsstadt Kempten die Stelle eines Consulenten übertrug. Im Streit mit dem Fürstabt von Kempten vertrat W. temperamentvoll und glücklich die Sache der Stadt. 1731 wurde W. Syndikus und Consulent in Lindau und 1746 Bürgermeister. Als solcher führte er „streitbar und sachkundig" mit glücklichem Erfolge den Kampf gegen die Patricier, die „Sünfzen", die ihren alten Antheil am Stadtregimente wieder zu erlangen hofften. Wegelin’s Fürsorge für die Stadt Lindau wird von den Zeitgenossen hoch gerühmt. Auch als historisch-politischer Schriftsteller hat er sich einen guten Namen gemacht; ich erwähne von seinen Werken, die Weidlich und Meusel verzeichnet haben, nur die ausführliche Streitschrift: [358] „Gründlicher historischer Bericht von der kaiserlichen und Reichslandvogtei in Schwaben" 1755, die sich mit den seit dem 16. Jahrhundert unaufhörlich fortdauernden Zwistigkeiten zwischen dem schwäbischen Kreis und Oesterreich über die Landvogtei in Schwaben beschäftigt; dann das jetzt noch brauchbare Sammelwerk, den „Thesaurus rerum Suevicarum" (1. Bd. 1756, 2. u. 3. Bd. 1757, 4. Bd. 1760); endlich die Neuedition der „Alten Schwäbischen Geschichten" des Thomas Lirer von Rankweil, die 1762 in Lindau erschien. W. ist am 11. Januar 1764 in Lindau gestorben. Weidlich, Zuverlässige Nachrichten von denen jetzt lebenden Rechtsgelehrten. Halle, Bd.

        A finely illustrated album of case histories, with 33 careful full-page drawings, heightened in color, and text in manuscript. 26 folding leaves. 8vo (226 x 170 mm.), orig. wrappers (occasional light staining)

      N.p.: ca. 1760. The father of Genteki Kagawa, Genetsu (or Shigen) Kagawa (1699-1777), is famous for originating the practice of gynecology and obstetrics in Japan. His "San-ron was destined to be the standard authority on obstetrics in Japan for at least a hundred years. That classic work was followed by the San-ron yoku written in 1775 by Genteki (or Shikei) Kagawa (1739-1779), the adopted son of Genetsu, as a 'supplement' to the San-ron and to correct the errors in the published work of the elder Kagawa, resulting in a considerable improvement in obstetrical methods."-Mestler, A Galaxy of Old Japanese Medical Books With Miscellaneous Notes on Early Medicine in Japan. Part II, pp. 493-94. Genteki Kagawa is famous for using many unconventional devices for facilitating a successful delivery and was the first obstetrician in Japan to understand that the head of the foetus should be down during delivery. In the 18th century, due to the considerable poverty in Japan, many babies were aborted. Makers and polishers of mirrors also filled the profession of abortionists as they had access to mercury which could be used to terminate foetuses. When the procedure went wrong, women were brought to Kagawa who noticed that the unborn children's heads were almost always at the bottom of the womb. This album - an illustrated practical manual - discusses many case histories of complications, special observations, and remarkable occurrences observed by Kagawa during pregnancy and birth; 33 are finely drawn and colored. It was issued by Kagawa as a sort of examination for his disciples, requiring them to demonstrate advanced knowledge of obstetrics before they were granted a license or certificate to practice; it was kept in manuscript as secret or proprietary information. Kagawa has recommended a number of drugs and provided recipes for their manufacture for the health of the expectant mother and to induce childbirth. A very nice copy. Some worming, occasionally touching image or text, carefully repaired.

        Histoire Naturelle, Volcans. Vue Généralle du Vesuve en 1757

      Parigi 1760 - Bella veduta del Vesuvio durante l'eruzione del 1757, incisa da Bernard su disegno di de la Rue. La veduta fu pubblicata nella celebre Encyclopédie di Diderot e D’Alembert (28 voll., 1751-1772). Conosciuta come l'Enciclopedia o Dizionario ragionato delle scienze, delle arti e dei mestieri rappresenta il primo vero prototipo di raccolta dello scibile umano in forma di Encyclopedia. Nata dall’idea di una traduzione corretta e ampliata della Cyclopaedia di Chambers, l’impresa mutò di segno quando l’editore ne affidò la direzione a Diderot e, «quanto alla parte matematica», a d’Alembert. Attorno al nuovo progetto furono chiamati a raccolta, come sottolineò Diderot, talenti appartenenti a «tutte le branche dello scibile umano», al fine di costituire «una società di scrittori e di artisti, intenti ciascuno al suo settore, e legati soltanto dall’interesse generale del genere umano e da un sentimento di reciproca benevolenza». Incisione su rame, finemente acquarellata, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Spectacular view of the Vesuve during the eruption of 1575, engraved by J. F. Bernard on a drawing by de la Rue. The view was published into famous Encyclopédie, ou dictionnaire raisonné des sciences, des arts et des métiers. The Encyclopédie was published under the direction of Diderot and d'Alembert, with 17 volumes of text and 11 volumes of plates between 1751 and 1772. Containing 74,000 articles written by more than 130 contributors, the Encyclopédie was a massive reference work for the arts and sciences, as well as a machine de guerre which served to propagate the ideas of the French Enlightenment. The impact of the Encyclopédie was enormous. Through its attempt to classify learning and to open all domains of human activity to its readers, the Encyclopédie gave expression to many of the most important intellectual and social developments of its time. Copperplate, finely hand coloured, in very good condition. Dimensioni 445 355mm

Europe, Asia, Africa, and North and South America are covered, but not Australia or the Poles. The second part introduces children to globes and their usage, and principles of cosmography and astronomy. The world map is by Christian Sepp and had first appeared in a 1758 atlas, the plates for which must have been sold to Schneider for this book.

        Marifetname [The Book of Knowledge and Skills].

      [Ottoman Empire, ca 1760]. - Folio (209 x 318 mm). 459, (2), 14 (but: 13) ff. of index, numerous errors in Arabic pagination, but complete according to catchwords, numbered throughout by a later owner in pencil from left to right, 1-474 ff. Ottoman Turkish on thin, polished, cream-coloured laid paper. Text is in fine naskh script with black and red ink within a red double-lined border, 31 lines of text within a written area of 232 x 112 mm. Occasional red underlining, sections usually demarcated by a single word of red text on a line with a red border on either side. 11 full-page colour illustrations of scientific diagrams, 8 full-page coloured tables and 5 coloured half-page illustrations, as well as a round, black and red ink diagram on leaf 448v. Contemporary full calf, expertly rebacked with six compartments of raised bands and gilt motifs, gilt red title label, all edges speckled red. A fine 18th century manuscript copy of the famous scholarly encyclopedia, not printed until 1835 (in Bulaq). The "Marifetname", or "Book of Gnosis" is a compilation of astronomical, astrological, mathematical, anatomical, psychological, philosophical as well as mystical religious texts. It is famous for containing the first treatment of post-Copernican astronomy by a Muslim scholar. - Ibrahim Haqqi Erzurumi (1703-80) is considered an outstanding figure of 18th century Ottoman Turkey. Based on an immense knowledge of the Sufi branch of Islam as well as his studies in Western science, he devoted himself to the domains of both religion and science, considering both a means of approaching God. - Occasional smudging of ink; minor offsetting on pages facing illustrations, leaves 7-11 with minor waterstains in the upper corner margins, leaves 12-18 expertly reinforced in the upper margin, with rather severe loss to text in upper half of leaves 14v and 15. Text appears to be lost on 378r (faint traces of text still remain). Leaves 343v-350v have dark pink stain in centre of text toward gutter (no loss), likewise on 443v-463v. Leaves 448-454 have had their margins reinforced. Leaves numbered 449 and 450 must be switched, as well as 453 and 454. Altogether a very appealing copy with the numerous illustrations showing fine detail. Cf. Zenker I, 1709. F. Gülen, "Key Concepts in the Practice of Sufism," p. 106, n. 69. Z.

        Neueste Vorstellung und Beschreibung der, der [sic] Gesellschafft Iesu zugehoerigen Provinz Paraquay mit den angraenzenden Laendern

      Francoforte 1760 - Mappa del Paraguay e delle province istituite dai gesuiti intorno al 1732. Include una legenda per l'identificazione delle posizioni degli insediamenti spagnoli, dei neo-convertiti nativi americani, e degli indigeni non cristiani. La carta, come espressamente indicato nell'iscrizione del margine inferiore, a sinistra, deriva dalla mappa di Giovanni Petroschi (1715- 1766) stampata a Roma intorno al 1732, e che conobbe poi numerose traduzioni ed edizioni. Nel cartiglio sulla sinistra, la dedica a Francisco Retz (1673-1750), che fu Superiore della Compagnia di Gesù. Incisione su rame, finemente colorata a mano, restauri perfettamente eseguiti, visibili al verso, nel complesso in buono stato di conservazione. Map of Paraguay or the provinces settled by the Jesuits around 1732, first issued in Rome by Giovanni Petroschi (1715- 1766). Includes a key for identification of locations of the settlements of Spanish, newly-converted native Americans, and the non-Christian natives. Includes scale. The map is dedicated to Francisco Retz (1673-1750), Superior General of the Society of Jesus Between 1609 and 1780, the Roman Catholic Society of Jesus (the Jesuits) established an autonomous Christian Indian state on the territory of present-day Paraguay, Uruguay, and parts of Argentina and Brazil. After unsuccessful efforts to Christianize the warlike Guaycurú Indians of northeastern Paraguay, the Jesuits concentrated on organizing the Guaraní Indians into a series of reducciones (reductions or townships), in which a kind of communal living was practiced. The system of reductions was an attempt to correct earlier abuses, in which the Paraguayan Indians were transformed into virtual slaves who were compelled to work for the Spanish settlers. Copper engraving, hand coloured, perfectly executed restorations on verso, otherwise in good condition. Dimensioni 536 680mm

        A Confession of Faith Owned and Consented to by the Elders and Messengers of the Churches in the Colony in Connecticut in New-England, Assembled, by Delegation at Say Brook September 9th 1708.

      New London: Timothy Green, 1760. Small 8vo, contemporary tooled sheep, [1], 118 pp. Binding very worn, and spine is chipped and torn a bit, rear joint cracked, early owner's signatures and notes on endpapers, some foxing, aged and browned throughout. This work is a second edition of a title that was originally published in 1710 by Thomas Short. A third edition was published in 1810, a hundred years after the first, which was followed by one in 1831. The Saybrook Synod, which took place in 1708, produced one of the most important religious documents of that period. It produced a 15 point statement, which included a provision for an association of churches that could exercise some control over local congregations. It also appears to have developed regional ministerial associations that could review ministerial candidates. colonialwarsct website. Evans 8733. Sabin 77391.
