Venice - Ricondotta].
[Venice], per li figliuoli del qu. Z. Antonio Pinelli, 1777. Large 4to. XXXIX, (1) pp. With woodcut printer's device to title page. Contemp. Italian boards. First edition of Venice's anti-Jewish statutes of 1777, the last "Ricondotta" published by the republic. With the political deterioration of Venice, ever new repressive measures were enacted against the Jewish community, based increasingly on anti-semitic sentiment rather than economic motives. On 27 September 1777 the Senate passed a far-reaching decree banishing all Venetian Jews from the city that could not prove a right of residence or lived in the ghetto. Also, Jews were forbidden to maintain a manufacturing business or sell meat, grain, or any food at all. - Slight duststaining to binding; interior shows faint waterstain; title page numbered in red crayon. Extremely rare; last sold at auction at Sotheby's, New York, in 1985. ICCU VEAE\005013. OCLC 14559111. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

He had sailed into the Antarctic extensively and had charted the coastlines from Newfoundland to New Zealand. Cook\'s third voyage was organized to seek a more efficient route from England to both southern and eastern Asia without entailing rounding the Cape of Good Hope.Since the beginning of the European expansion in the later fifteenth century, the search for a Passage more Northwest or even Northeast had been on the agenda of lots of northern European mariners and merchants. Incentive for the latest exploration for this specific route was England\'s growing interests in India, economical as well as colonial, in the late eighteenth century.Cook, who again was in command of this Resolution, was to approach the Northwest Passage from the Pacific. The Discovery, a second ship captained by Charles Clerke, was to accompany him. After leaving England separately, they regrouped at Cape Town and went from there to Tasmania, New Zeala … [Click Below for Full Description]

A New and Accurate Map of the Present Seat of War in North America, Comprehending New Jersey, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, New-York &c. Issued London, June 1777, anonymous for Universal Magazine. Historically significant original antique map. Issued June, 1777, just as the British troops under Burgoyne were to arrive from Canada to seize control of New York Harbor (center right side of map). The British in the month after this map was issued would go on to control New York city for several years, but met against George Washington's Continental Army forces in major significant decisive battles. Map has been affixed to a slightly large backing manilla paper sheet by a previous owner. There are several mostly short splits along a couple of the fold lines, blank margins have been trimmed away although truth is, this may well represent the state it was in within the original periodical. The overall visual appearance of this significant historical map remain still quite attractive. Entirely worthy of ownership, display, etc. Scarce 18th century American Revolutionary war map, issued by the British, depicting Atlantic seaboard North America in an area of major naval and military engagement. In Good or better condition. Not a perfect example, but still overall clean and appealing. Minor light surface age wear and toning as typical, slight paper shaving inside neatline at bottom right, tiny corner chip top right, various other small age flaws which all combine to create a nice surviving example of a rare American Revolution era map. Original fold lines as issued for a disposable mont … [Click Below for Full Description]

The Hague, Jacobus Scheltus, 1777. - 4to. 26 pp. With woodcut device on title page and one initial. Red modern cloth with giltstamped spine title. Renewal of the bilateral Treaty of Peace and Commerce of 1752 between the Netherlands and Morocco, then ruled by Sultan Abdallah IV (Moulay Abdallah ibn Moulay Ismail ibn Moulay Chérif ibn Moulay Ali of the Alaouite dynasty, styled "Keiser van de Ryken der Maroccen, Fez, Mequinez, Suz en Algarven" in Dutch). The renewal was signed at Salé, 29 June 1777, when the open-minded Mohammed ibn Abdallah was Sultan. In December same year, the Sultanate of Morocco became the first nation whose head of state publicly recognized the United States as an independent nation. - Since the late 16th century the Netherlands had been attempting to establish friendly relations with Islamic countries, such as the Ottoman Empire and Morocco, due to their common enmity with catholic Spain. The first "Treaty of Friendship and Free Commerce" between the two countries had been signed as early as 1610, offering "free access and friendly reception for their respective subjects with any need for safeguard or safe-conduct, no matter how they come to the others' territory". - Slight browning, but well-preserved.

Willm. Napier [PN 67], London, 1777. Oblong folio. Disbound. 1f. (fine decorative engraved title), [1] (blank), 2-45, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved. Scored for flute or violin and harpsichord. Middle movements of each lesson with the first verse underlaid below flute part, and subsequent verses printed below music. With "N.B. To make this Work of more general use, the words are put to the middle Movements which are chiefly selected from the most favourite Scotch Airs" printed to lower margin of title. Early signature of "Miss Acton" in black ink to upper margin of title. Slightly worn; occasional light foxing and soiling; some very light dampstaining and worming to lower portions of pp. 21-27 and 35-45 respectively. Together with early manuscript verses from one of the collection's Scotch airs, "De'el tak the War" (a.k.a. "Deil tak' the wars") laid in. Octavo. 1 p. In black ink. With titling ("The Wars") to upper margin. Text in English, with significant variation from published versions, particularly in the second verse ("But my brave, my dearest Willy goes through every danger. Oh!

The "favourite Scotch Airs" to which Schroeter refers were perhaps adapted from his collection of 12 Favorite Scotch Songs for voice, harpsichord, and German flute or violin, which, according to RISM S2214, was also published by Napier (No. 67), ca. 1777.

(BERINGTON, S.)
A Amsterdam, & se trouve à Liège, Chez F.J. Desoer, 1777. With 4 engraved frontispieces. 4 parts in 2 volumes. 147 pp.; (4), 143 pp.; (4) 144 pp.; (4) 164 pp. Small 8vo. Contemporary marbled calf, spines gilt in compartments, labels with gilt lettering, marbled edges. Gove p. 297; Versins p. 108; cf.: Hartig 50; Trousson pp. 143-144 & 266; Negley 93. Augmented edition of this at the time immense popular adventure-utopia. The original edition appeared in London in 1737 as The memoirs of Sigr. Gaudentio di Lucca. It was mistakenly attributed to Bishop Berkeley. It was not until 1935 that the true author was identified (Lee M. Ellison, Gaudentio Di Lucca, a forgotten utopia 1935). With Berkeley as its supposed author this utopia 'attained to a rank and dignity comparable to that of the Republic of Plato, the Utopia of Sir Thomas More, and the New Atlantis of Lord Bacon' (Ellison). This version was translated from the English by Milts and revised by Saint-Germain, who in the process added several ideas of his own, and it was augmented by Dupuy Demportes. Thus it became one of the most important imitations of the Histoire de Sévarambes by Vairasse d'Alais. The basic story is the confession of Gaudence before the Inquisition about his adventures and travels in and to the land of the Mezzoranies. In this land there were hardly any laws, there was abundance, equality, no death penalty, public warehouses and only one road connected with the outside world.

Tutto il Regno delle Due Sicilie è illustrato dallo Swinburne che fu storico, artista e studioso dei luoghi e dei costumi dell'Italia meridionale.

L'autore infatti si sofferma sulle caratteristiche comportamentali degli abitanti del Reame. L'opera inizia con una breve descrizione del Regno di Napoli, quindi il viaggio da Marsiglia fino a Reggio passando per la capitale e poi Bari, Foggia, Taranto e Brindisi. Tutta la Calabria. Al terzo volume la città di Napoli e le sue vicinanze: Capri, Procida, Ischia, Sorrento, Cuma, il Fusaro e la zona flegrea. La città di Amalfi. Tutta la Sicilia. Seconda edizione rara.
