The earliest known retail liquor license at least for New York City, printed by William Bradford who was the royal printer in New York during the reign of Queen Anne, 1702-1714, and the onlyprinter working in New York during that time.

This broadside was meant to be completed in manuscript. The text makes clear that both men and women were eligible to be licensed tavern keepers, the blanks could either he completed, his, or hers. This is styled "in the reign of ... Anne ... Queen of Great Britain..." which would place it between 1707 when Great Britain was created under the Acts of Union between England and Scotland, and 1714, within the second decade of New York printing. The broadside is interesting because the license was not granted solely as means of taxation, but its broader purpose, as stated within the text, was a means of social control, the suppression of gambling, politically disruptive "meetings" etc. OCLC lists four holdings (NYPL, LCP, AAS, NYHS).

His father captain in the " Camaigne des Indes" or French East India Company. Recognizing the poor quality of charts published for the route to the Far East thus far, Manvillette set out to upgrade them. During the mid 1730 s he collected data and updated charts which culminated in 1745 with the issurance of " Le Neptune Oriental" which comprised of 22 charts. This work was quickly recognized as beeing a great advancement over all earlier works. During the remainder of his life Manevillette continued to update and add new information and in 1775 isued an enlarged edition containing 63 charts. This new edition contained many chrats that were based on information collected by Alexander Darymple, a Scottish geographer and later the first hydrographer of the British Admiralty.

The ornithological section of Buffon's famous Histoire naturelle, with the first 8 volumes in the first edition and the 9th volume in the new edition published in Amsterdam and Dordrecht, the only quarto edition to rival the original French Imprimerie Royale edition.''A great number of species are enumerated and described in this work, which is one of the chief works of ornithological literature'' (Anker). The birds are dealt with under their vernacular names. ''The collaborator for the first six volumes of the text was Ph. Guéneau de Montbeillard, who also wrote the section "Hirondelles" in vol. VII. The Abbé G.L.C.A. Bexon then assisted with the remainder of the bird section, so that Montbeillard could devote himself entirely to the insects'' (Anker).Georges Louis Leclerc (1707-1788) -- in 1717 his father became Comte de Buffon and Louis XV later made Georges Comte de Buffon -- was an inconspicuous student who only showed a special talent for mathematics. Initially he combined a career in finance with one in science, translating important works by Hales and Newton into French. In 1739 Buffon became director of the Jardin du Roi, later the Jardin des Plantes, and the Histoire naturelle may have originated as a description of the royal collection. It appeared from 1749 to 1804 and eventually comprised 44 volumes. Buffon was assisted among others by the anatomist Louis Daubenton, and the final volumes were completed after his death under the direction of Comte de Lacépède.The last volume lacks the last leaf (the ''Avis au relieur'' giving a list of the plates). The bindings show some scratches and minor wear but are structurally sound. One of the most important early landmarks in the history of ornithology

         Histoire de la sultane de Perse et des visirs

      Paris: widow of Claude Barbin,, 1707. Contes turcs. Composez en langue turque par Chéc Zadé, et traduits en françois. Duodecimo in fours and eights (159 x 92 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, spine gilt in compartments. Gilt bookplate of French physician and bibliophile Tibulle Desbarreaux-Bernard (1798-1880) to the front free endpaper; contemporary ownership inscription ("Simon Chirury") and later ink-stamp ("E. T. Simon, D. T") to title page. Binding expertly refurbished, mild craquelure to spine now stabilised, a few faint scores to rear board, pastedowns abraded in places, revealing lining made from a contemporary manuscript to the rear, upper-outer corners of text-block faintly creased, small tear to G1 costing a few letters either side, the sense unimpaired, spill-burn to I6, short closed tear to fore edge Dd2, a few other light marks. A very good copy. First edition of this important collection of oriental tales now known as the Forty Viziers, published three years after Galland's first edition of the Thousand and One Nights, and following its characteristic frame-narrative structure. Notably rare: one copy traced at auction, one in British institutions (SOAS), and six worldwide; bibliographers including Chauvin and Macdonald claimed never to have seen a copy. A second edition with an Amsterdam imprint appeared later the same year and is similarly rare. An English translation was published by Tonson the year after. The frame-narrative echoes the Biblical story of Potiphar's Wife, concerning a young prince who refuses the advances of his stepmother, who then denounces him to the sultan. The prince is put on trial, by means of alternate tales told by the sultana and the forty viziers. De la Croix (1653-1713), dragoman to Louis XIV, attributes the Turkish original to one Chéc Zadé, tutor to Ottoman ruler Murad II (r. 1421-51), but is now thought that that the tales date back to Arabic original no longer extant, possibly written in Egypt for the Turkic ruler al-Ikhshid (r. 935-46), and that two writers were involved in its production: "an Ahmed-i Misri [Ahmed the Egyptian] who translated the work from Arabic and presented it to Murad II (r. 1421-51), and a Sheykh Zade who took up the text later, presenting it to both Murad II and Mehmed II (r. 1451-81)" (Burrill, Sheykh-Zade, EI2). The work was to leave an influential trail, and European authors to have read it include Hans Christian Andersen, who used it as a source for The Emperor's New Clothes.

         Systema Solare et Planetarium

      Iohann Bapt. Homann and Johann Gabriel Dopplemayr, Nuremberg 1707 - 495 x 574 mm (19-3/8 x 22-3/4 x 24-1/8 inches) plate size plus margins. copper etching, one sheet printed in black, coloured by hand. The map illustrates the solar system by Copernicus with the orbits of the planets and the twelve constellations of the zodiac. The map shows the extent of the knowledge of the solar system and astronomy at the time. The center of the map shows a wonderful representation of the solar system with the sun in the center, the concept which Copernicus had introduced. The lower left corner vignette depicts the eclipse of the sun on May 12, 1706, the others the various theories on the orbits of the planets. Interestingly, this vignette shows California as an island. The upper left vignette shows the then known planets and the Sun; the planets are represented with their diameters to some scale to each other. The upper right corner shows heavenly clouds and solar systems thought to exist elsewhere in the stars. The lower right vignette shows the Goddess of Astronomy, Urania, and below her are three cosmological systems, the Greek, Claudius Ptolemy's, which is somewhat hidden by modern astronomical instruments implying that current astronomers disregard his view. The next one was developed by the Dane ,Tycho Brahe ,where the Earth is in the center orbited by the Sun and the Moon with the other planets orbiting the sun. The last one is labeled "sic ratione" [according to reason] and is the Copernican system again.The "Atlas Novus Coelestis in quo Mundus Spectabilis " was published by Homann's heirs in 1742 and some of the plates were prepared by J. Doppelmayr already in the early 1700s. This plate is one those prepared very early and would have been published prior to the 1742 issuance of the "Atlas Novus."Johann Baptist Homann (1662-1724) was an engraver, cartographer and geographer to the Kaiser of the Holy Roman Empire (1715) and was also a member of the Prussian Royal Academy of Science. He founded a cartographic publishing firm which continued in business until 1848. e became a celebrated cartographer already in his lifetime producing maps, charts, terrestrial globes of high quality both in their geographic accuracy and aesthetic appeal.Johann Doppelmayr (1677-1750) was professor of Mathematics in Nuremberg and wrote on astronomy, geography, cartography, spherical trigonometry as well as constructing terrestrial and celestial globes. He was also a member of the Royal Society [London], and both the Berlin and St. Petersburg Academies of Sciences. Doppelmayr - Kanas: Star Maps 2009. [Tooley: Maps and Map-Makers ]. Some rubbing and browning of margins, a few old stab holes, with a few small repairs to tears from the back, overall a very attractive copy This copy of the map predates the 1742 and later editions; it could be as early as 1707 but possibly also 1720.

Late eighteenth century calf, slightly worn, spine has 5 raised bands and gilt tooling, with dark red label. Marbled end papers and page edges. Very minor creasing on title page, interior clean and bright. Bookplate of Henry Edward Bunbury.Edward Lhuyd (1660-1707), born near Oswestry, was a Welsh scholar at Jesus College, Oxford, and Curator of the Ashmolean Museum. From 1695 to 1701 he travelled exhaustively through the Celtic countries; this volume (only v. I was published) is the result. In many ways Lhuyd anticipated the methods of modern comparative linguistics. His book is also a fascinating source of material on late Cornish, still spoken when Lhuyd made his journey, and of course on the other languages studied. An elegant, near fine exampleof thi important book. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Officina Wetsteniana 1707 - First edition, before the reprint of 1708 and English translation of 1713. Small octavo, 6-1/4 x 4-1/4 in. (16 x 11 cm) overall, the pages 6-1/8 x 3-3/4 in.

(fly-title), pp. [317]-472 (Accessio Tertia, de Vera Perfectione), 51 ll. (indexes), 1 l. (errata recto, quotation from Justin verso), [1 l.]. Covers moderately soiled, number piece chipped; endpapers with binding stains; wormholes in front gutter not affecting any text or structure; scattered light staining and toning; discreet small penciled marks infrequently throughout, generally marginal; repaired 2 cm clean tear in bottom margin H7 not touching text; overall very good, well printed on crisp and bright paper, the text block tight and strong. Attig [483], Yolton C1708-5 (both noting only the 1708 second edition). Part I, following the lengthy “Praefatio Editoris,” comprises 22 short “Theses de Rationis prae Fide” by an unnamed Scottish disciple of Locke, in English and Latin on facing pages, dated at the end “L. 25. Nov. 1701,” confuted by the 474 points of the “Animadversiones” disputing each thesis in turn at length. Part II comprises three “Accessiones.” The fly-title of Accessio Tertia ends with a pseudonym: “Commentationes Alethophili.” The actual authorship of Fides et ratio collatae, previously entered in the British Museum Catalogue under “John Locke” as by an unknown author, was traced by G.D. Henderson, Mystics of the North-East (1934), and Stephen Hobhouse, “Fides et ratio: the book which introduced Jacob Boehme to William Law,” Journal of theological studies, vol. XXXVII, no. 148 (1936), by references in the writings and correspondence of a group in Great Britain with whom the offerings of the compiler and editor Pierre Poiret (1645-1719), the scholar-printer Henricus Wetstein (1649-1726) and Jeanne-Marie Bouvier de la Motte-Guyon (Mme Guyon, 1648-1717) found fertile ground, among them George Cheyne, Dr James Keith in London, the brothers James and George Garden, Lord Forbes of Pitsligo, “Chevalier” Andrew Michael Ramsay, James Oglivie Lord Deskford, James Cunningham of Barnes and the Philadelphian Francis Lee. A contemporary manuscript English transcription of the Accessio Tertia in Cullen House, Banffshire, once Lord Deskford’s residence, is entitled “Baron de Metternacht’s Treatise concerning the perfection and happiness that is to be attained in this life,” thus linking the pseudonymous “Alethophilus” with “Baron de Metternacht” (also “B. of Metter” and “B. of M.” to his friends in England and Scotland). The cumulative internal and external evidence is that the Animadversions, Accessio Prima and Accessio Tertia are all by “Alethophilus,” pseudonym of the imperial diplomat and high administrator Wolf Freiherr (= “Baron”) von Metternich (d. 1731), to whom at least 33 affectionate letters (addressing “Mon cher F”) from Mme Guyon (and at least seven of his to Mme Guyon, signed “F”) survive, full of “la vie intérieure,” his with references to Dr Garden and the Chevaliers de Forbes (i.e., Pitsligo) and de Ramsay, carriers of her influence into England and Scotland. This first Latin edition is rare. When Hobhouse examined the authorship in 1936, he knew only two copies, including the British Museum volume, of the 1708 second Latin edition in England. The present copy belonged to the polylinguist and classicist Lawrence I. Feinbe [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Practical Discourses of Singing in the Worship of God; Preach'd at the Friday Lecture in Eastcheap. By Several Ministers.

      London: Printed by J. Darby for N. Cliff. 1707 - FIRST AND ONLY EDITION. 12mo, 146 x 90 mms., pp. x [xi - xii adverts], 226 [227 - 228 adverts], 19th century half calf, red morocco label, marbled boards; binding a little rubbed, but generally a very good copy. The Presbyterian minister Jabez Earle (1673 - 1768) seems to have been the driving force behind this volume. As ONDB's entry notes, he " together with five other nonconformist ministers, William Harris, Benjamin Grosvenor, Thomas Reynolds, John Newman, and Thomas Bradbury, he began a course of Friday evening lectures at the Weigh House, on institutionalized religious worship. Among the subjects discussed were prayer, singing, 'hearing the word', and reading the scriptures." There are six sermons in the volume: "Of the Nature of the Duty of Singing"; "Arguments to prove the Obligation of the Duty"; "Of the Excellence of Singing"; "Objections against Singing consider'd"; "Directions for the right Performance of the Duty of Singing"; and "Exhorations to Singing."

         Litotomia ovvero del cavar la pietra.

      Florence, Guiseppe Manni, 1707, Folio, 24, 110, (2) pp., Titelvignette und 16 ganzseitige Kupferstich-Tafeln in einem Halblederband der Zeit mit Rückenvergoldung. Ein breitrandiges und unbeschnittenes Exemplar. *Rare First Edition of an early but authoritative book on Lithotomy, the surgery to remove the stone. It is excellently illustrated, the plates showing the actual operations as well as the urological instruments. Tommaso Alghisi (1669-1730) was an Italian surgeon, famous in his time for successfull cures of the stone and in this mayor work he was probably the first to use an indwelling urethral catheter to drain urine away from the wound. The inclined position of the patient which head raised during the operation , illustrated in plate XVI, was widely used on his authority. **Sehr seltene Erstausgabe eines der besten, frühen Werke zur Lithotomie, exzellent gedruckt, mit schönen instruktiven Tafeln. Thomasso Alghisi (1669-1730) aus Florenz war der Sohn eines bekannten Professors der Chirurgie. Ausgebildet unter seinem Vater am Hospital di Santa Maria Nuova, betrieb er anatomische Studien unter dem berühmten Lorenzo Bellini und widmete sich vorzugsweise dem Steinschnitt. Die Behandlung des Papstes Clemens XI trug zur Erhöhung seines Rufes bei. Im vorliegenden Werk verwirft Alghisi den hohen Steinschnitt und gibt der Methode des Giov. de Romani mit dem so genannten großen Apparat (Methode des Steinschnitts über die Schamfuge) den Vorzug. Das Buch gehört zu den klassischen Werken der Urologie und ist in der Originalausgabe, noch dazu in einem so exzellenten Exemplar, nur selten im Handel zu finden.

         De subitaneis mortibus libri duo.

      Romae: J.F. Buagani, 1707, 4, title leaf with an engraved 'grim reaper', (22), 243, (1 Errata) pp., fine contemporary full parchment binding ExLibris 'Malande de Merindol" a little bit water stained, but fine copy on extra crisp paper. First Edition, the rare "A" Issue *) "of the foundation for a true understanding of cardiac pathology"!"In the above work Lancisi noted cardiac hypertrophy and dilatation as causes of sudden death. He was the first to describe valvular vegetation and his book gives a classification of the cardiac diseases then recognized. Lancisi's work laid the foundation for a true understanding of cardiac pathology." Garrison & Morton Giovanni Maria Lancisi (1654-1720), regarded as the greatest Italian clinician of his time, was asked by Pope Clement XI to analyze and report on the pathogenesis of death in Rome. Lancisi responded with the treatise "De Subitaneiis Mortibus", published in 1707. In the first half of the book he dealt with sudden death in general, attributing it to three causes - "suffocation from intemperance," syncope, and apoplexy. More important, however, were the sections on heart disease, because here Lancisi laid the foundation s of cardiac pathology. He described such conditions as cardiac syphilis, which had not previously identified, and provided a classification of heart disease. Hypertrophy and dilatation of the heart were presented as manifestations of cardiac disease, and the existence of valvular vegetations was discussed for the first time. Lancisi's observations on heart disease were based on cases he had seen in his practice in Rome and include reports of autopsies in five fatal cases. Lancisis died in 1720, but his later researches on the heart, with an important treatise on aneurysms, were published in 1728 by his former assistant, Francesco Soldati. In that book, the frequency of aneurysm of the heart was noted. Lancisi pointed out that the walls of some aneurysm, whereas those of others are thick. Their causes, he stated are diverse and include heredity, syphilis, asthma, palpitation, excesses, and violent emotions. The clinical and anatomic descriptions are detailed, with every effort made to correlate the two. The observations were precise-for example, exact measurements of body organs were given. The causes of unexpected death included cerebral hemorrhage and hypertrophied hearts valvular vegetations were described clearly. Lancisi's book illustrates the trend toward making clinico anatomic correlations. see: Leibowitz, p.3 pp.74-75 Willius & Dry, pp. 76-77.*) "Three variant title pages of 'De subianeis mortibus (Rorme, 1707) exist. Type a is the "grim reaper" motif. Type b the small woodcut shield, and Type c the large engraved papal shield." "The previously unreported grim reaper engraving (Type a) appears to be the least common of the three variant vignettes.""Pending formal collation or pertinent historical evidence, priority among these variants remains uncertain, although some speculation may be permitted. Comparing the fine large engraving of the papal shield (Type c) with the smaller woodcut shield (Type b) makes it reasonable to suggest that Type c followed Type b as an improved version of the shield vignette. Three admittedly nonsubstantive lines of logic suggest that vignette Type a, the grim reaper motif, briefly preceded the other two. First, it is the least prevalent. Second, the later Italian editions employ vignettes based on the papal shield theme, evidently expressing the papal support and sanction intended for this work." Paul D. Kligfield, A Survey of Variant Title Page Vignettes in Landsi's De subitaneis mortibus. Journal of the History of Medicine, 38 (1983): pp.336-339Garrison-Morton 2731 Norman 1273 Cushing L34 (1709 ed.) Osler 3148 Waller 5542 (1708 ed.) Wellcome III, p. 441 Blake 254 Lilly, p.103.

         Traité des maladies de l'œil et des remèdes propres pour leur guérison. Enrichy de plusieurs expériences de physique.

      Troyes, Jacques Le Febvre, 1707, pleine basane de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné, coiffes et coins habilement restaurés. -Qq. rousseurs éparses, manque de papier dans la marge ext. de 1 f. sans atteinte du texte. -Bel exemplaire. - in-4 de (14)-573-(1) pp. (en fait, 593, la pagination sautant sans manque de 580 à 561) ; Edition originale.Garrison-Morton 5824 ; Heirs of Hippocrates 677 ; Waller 6166."Maître-Jan is sometimes called the father of French ophthalmology because of his many contributions to the field and for the writing of this large compendium on ophthalmology--the most complete and accurate of its day. The work contains extensive and detailed discussion of the diagnosis and surgical treatment of a wide variety of eye conditions, as well as a long section devoted to the medical treatment of cancer, infections, and injuries of the eye. Maître-Jan used poultices and dressings with compounds of such ingredients as zinc sulfate, copper sulfate, burnt rose water or beef fat for treating neoplasms, open lesions, infections, obstruction of the lacrymal ducts, and other such conditions. Before the late seventeenth century it was thought that a cataract was an opaque skin within the capsule of the optic lens. Although Maître-Jan proved by postmortem examination in 1692 that the cataract was a clouding and hardening of the lens itself, it was not until Michel Brisseau's (1676-1743) work on the same subject in 1709 that the medical community accepted it as fact. The method of treatment described by Maître-Jan is the couching operation in which, after incising the suspensory tissues of the lens, the lens was depressed below the level of the pupil and left in place. Actual extraction of the lens was first reported in 1753 by another French surgeon, Jacques Daviel (1696-1762)." (Heirs of Hippocrates).

         Optica oculorum vitia : sub praesidio Georgii Alberti Hambergeri, ... in Academia Jenensi, doctorum oculis ad diem ... Octobr. MDCIVC sujiciet Adamus Behmannus Bernhardi, ...

      Jena : Literis Gollnerianis, 1707, Kl.-4, (2), 64 pp., mit 1 Kupfertafel, feiner Pappband im Stil d. Zeit. Rare - Second Edition of the first monograph on refractive errors !"Physiology in general and physiologic optics in specific made great progress during the 18th century. These advances were at first made not by practicing ophthalmologists but the mathematicians and physicists. This situation is, therefore , similar to that of the 17th century when progress was achieved by Kepler, Scheiner, Kircher, Mariotte, Hooke, Rohault, Deschales, Huygens and others.The mathematician Georg Albrecht Hamberger (1662-1716) was the author of a most curios monograph which was printed toward of the end of the 17th century. Modern historian did not know about it and it is not mentioned by A. Hirsch, not by Helmholtz in the second edition of his Physiological Optik. It is difficult to determine how much this book influenced the thought progress of the 18th century. It is only mentioned in the review of the literature by Julius Beer in his first 'Augenheilkunde' of 1792 and Haller quotes it in his 'Elementa physiologiae humani' ...."The book is called: Optica oculorum vitia sub praesidio Geogrii Alberti Hambergeri, ....This is the first monograph on refractive errors, - the root so to speak from which 170 years later the classical book by Donders evolved the monograph is for its time extraordinarily clear, strictly mathematical and physical, written in an entirely different spirit from the scholastic descriptions of the fourth book by Plempius "Opthalmographia" (1632) and also far superior to the corresponding remarks in Boerhaave's lectures on ophtahlmology (1708, printed in 1746 to 1771). These two publications are usually regarded as the beginning of physiologic optics. ....(Also) Modern ocular hygiene was created by Professor Hamberger in Jena in 1696 ...Only the reform of ophthalmology during the middle of the 19th century which was based on the ophthalmoscope and the correct recognition of refraction changed the situation." Hirschberg/Blodi IV, pp.284-291"Es ist dies die erste Sonderschrift über die Fehler der Einstellung des Auges ... für die damalige Zeit außerordentlich klar, streng mathematisch-physikalisch ... geschrieben ... Die Hygiene des Auges ... ist in den zahllosen Schriften über diesen Gegenstand, die um die Wende des 18. zum 19. Jahrhundert ... erschienen sind, nur wenig verbessert und erweitert worden " Hirschberg

         Traittez des baromètres, thermomètres et notiomètres, ou hygromètres

      Amsterdam, Paul Marret, 1707, pet. in 12, de 5ff. 139pp. 2ff., illustré d'un frontispice et de 35 planches gravées par Schoonebeck h. t. et représentant les expériences de Torricelli, Pascal etc, pl. veau époque, dos orné, qq. ff. brunis sinon bon exemplaire. La première édition très rare est de 1688. C'est le premier traité consacré à ces instruments, et le premier à donner les règles de la graduation des thermomètres. Les expériences sur le vide venaient d'avoir lieu, c'est pourquoi il unit dans son traité les hygromètres et les thermomètres. ¶ Sotheran I. n°929 "The earliest account dealing exclusively with the subject, and especially valuable as the first work laying down rules for the graduation of the thermometer." - DSB p. " His detailed description of the principal meteorological instruments of the period is enriched with several new ideas, such as the calibration of the thermometric scale on the basis of two points of change of state: the point at which water freezes and - a much more contestable point - that at which butter melts." - Wellcome II. p.28 - Pas dans Poggendorff.

         Histoire de la Virginie

      Amsterdam: Chez Thomas Lombrail, 1707. Full Calf. Near Fine. 12mo; [4], 432, [16]pp, plus 14 finely executed plates (based on the engravings from the first part of Theodor De Bry's Grand Voyages) and a folding table. Engraved title page, with the coat of arms of Virginia, precedes the printed title page. Translated from the English ("The history and present state of Virginia, in four parts," first published in 1705). Contemporary full calf, the spine, in six compartments, very richly gilt with a red morocco label lettered in gilt. A very handsome, well-preserved copy Sabin 5116. Howe B-410. Church 821. JCB I 93. First French Edition (with a new title page) of the first history of the Virginia colony "penned by a native and the best contemporary account of its aboriginal tribes and the life of its early settlers." (Howes) Sabin calls Beverley the "best authority," affording the "most vivid, comprehensive, instructive, and entertaining picture of Virginia at the date of his writing" and quotes Pinkerton: "A work of considerable merit." Beverley's History, one of the most outspoken books of Americanism before the War of Independence, satirized the 'Rapacious and Arbitrary' English governors and objected to the 'heavy Impositions' put upon the American colonies by the English, while celebrating Virginia's history and laws, featuring stories of early Virginia-including the Lost Colony and Pocahontas saving Captain John Smith-which became standard features of American history. Even so, large parts of the History derived from existing sources, though Beverley often gave even the borrowed material his own interpretation. Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.
