         Reflexiones supra modernam causae sinensis constitutionem. Juxta exemplar in Italia impressum in latinum translatae.

      Ohne Ort (wohl Deutschland), 1709. - Kl-8°. Titel, 82 SS. Marmorierter Umschlag d. Zt. "Streit, Bibliotheca missionum: Chinesische Missionsliteratur, 1700-1950, Nr. 2576. Seltene erste lateinische Ausgabe der um 1704 erstmals auf italienisch veröffentlichten Schrift "Riflessioni sopra la causa della Cina" des Jesuiten und Mathematikers Tommaso Ceva (1648-1736). Behandelt wird die Kontroverse über Zugeständnisse an Chinesen, die zum Christentum übergetreten sind, aber einige alte Riten und Gewohnheiten beibehalten haben. Nach einiger Kritik an der liberalen und pragmatischen Haltung der jesuitischen Missionare entschloss sich Clemens XI mit dem Mandat von Nanking einzufordern, dass konfuzianische Gebräuche nur dann beibehalten werden dürften, wenn sie nicht im Widerspruch zur apostolilschen Lehre stünden. Der Legat Charles de Tournon, der im Jahr 1705 in China ankam, wurde vom Kaiser Kangxi in Peking zunächst freundlich empfangen, im Jahr 1707 dann aber inhaftiert, als er den römischen Wunsch auszuführen androhte, dass die chinesischen Katholiken exkomuniziert würden, wenn sie Praktiken beibehielten, die nun nach strengerer Betrachtung als Aberglauben bewertet wurden. Es ging dabei insbesondere um den Totenkult, das Wahrsagen, Aufstellen von Ahnentafeln und auch den Schmuck von Tempeln (Kirchen), die Ornamente enthielten, bei denen der Verdacht nahelag, es handele sich um Dämonen (eine gute Zusammenfassung gibt Rita Widmaier in der Einleitung zu: G. W. Leibniz. Briefe über China, Hamburg 2017, besonders Seiten 86-90). " "- Etwas gebräunt, wenig fleckig, die letzten fünf Blätter stärker gebräunt, berieben. Vorsatz mit altem Besitzvermerk eines Grafen Hohenstein. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Expériences de Physique, par M. Pierre Polinière, Docteur en Médecine.

      Good. A Paris, Chez : Jean de Laulne, dans la Place de Sorbonne, à lImage S. Jean. Claude Jombert, près des Augustins, à lImage Notre-Dame. Jacque Quillau, Imprimeur, rue Galande, aux Armes de lUniversité. 1709. Avec Approbation et Privilege. First edition. 17 cm. In-12 (8 +4); [iv ; 508 pages ; 10 plates]. Pasted onto the paste-down of the back cover is an additional engraving : dated or 1799. The instruction to the binder for the placement of the plates at the end of the text is on the verso of the last page of text. There is an advertisement for Polinières Les Elemens des Mathematiques (1704) on the verso of the title page. There is an eighteenth century signature on the title page: Courtin, Pretre, possibly that of Vincent-Joseph Courtin, prêtre du Diocèse de Cambrai, ca. 1773, and also a pencil annotation, "Paris, 1923." This copy is bound in mottled calf with a gilt-decorated spine and a recent red leather label. The front cover has been reattached. Despite the sloppy repairs to the spine, front cover and to the left edge of the title page, this copy is still a good working copy, now housed in a hard folding box by Deborah Evetts.Polinière devotes the first half of his book to experiments on the equilibrium of liquids and on the weight and elasticity of air. Next, he explores the directionality of magnetism and an experiment with magnetism for communication. At p. 303, the section on chemistry begins with a preface, followed by a systematic introduction, starting with acids and alkalines. Polinière follows chemistry with a section on anatomy, based on dissection, including circulation of the blood. The book concludes with a section on colors and light. An alphabetical index of the experiments concludes the text. In Mémoires de l'Académie des sciences, inscriptions et belles-lettres de Toulouse, 1902 : II, 1709, we learn Polinière was born in Coulence, Normandie (1671-1734) and that in 1722 he was asked to devise a curriculum for the young Louis XV, then 13 years old. There is a book plate of William Otho Potwin Morgan (1895 1934) and Christiana Drummond Councilman with the motto Morgan Pelagius on the pastedown of the front cover. Born in Chicago to a family of varnish manufacturers, William Otho Potwin Morgan was educated at St. Pauls School in New Hampshire, then entered Harvard in 1914, where he met Christina Drummond Councilman, the daughter of the Shattuck Professor of Pathological Anatomy at the Harvard Medical School. In 1917, he joined the United States Army and was shipped out to France (AEF 1st Div, 28th Infantry) in what became known as the Black Snake Division. Wounded and shell-shocked William Morgan returned to work at the Guaranty Bank in New York and with his wifes help and at her insistence, he began to write as a journalist, with an important article appearing in The New Republic about his experiences in the war and after with the Peace Commission, advocating for the implementation of President Wilsons Fourteen Points. James Carl Nelson wrote about Morgan in his Five Lieutenants the Heart Breaking Story of Five Harvard Men Who Led America to Victory in World War I. Christina Councilman escaped from her parents and went to New York, where she underwent a rigorous training to be a nurse, then working at Flower Hospital on East 68th Street in Manhattan, first in general patient care, then as a surgical nurse, with a view to joining her fiancé in France. Instead, she stayed in the United States and nursed victims of the flu, establishing herself as an independent woman. In 1921, she began taking classes at The Art Students League, as her marriage began to disintegrate, studying with Frank DuMond. She also met and had an affair with Chaim Weitzmann. Later through friends of her husbands she met Carl Jung and was called by him an anima woman or, an erotic muse. See: Translate this Darkness. The Life of Christiana Morgan, the Veiled Woman in Jungs Circle by Claire Douglas, Princeton University Press: 1993.

         A COLLECTION OF POEMS, VIZ. I. VENUS AND ADONIS. II. THE RAPE OF LUCRECE. III. THE PASSIONATE PILGRIM. IV. SONNETS TO SUNDRY NOTES OF MUSICK

      Bernard Lintot [1709], London - The first issue, having the four sub-titles dated 1630, 1632, 1599, and 1599 respectively, of the Second Edition of Shakespeare's Poems after the very scarce 1640 edition and the first to include VENUS AND ADONIS and THE RAPE OF LUCRECE. Small octavo (4" x 6-3/4") bound by Riviere and Son in a full gilt-decorated early 20th century brown morocco original Cosway binding with recessed panels on front and rear with inset oval watercolor miniatures on ivory by C.B. Currie under glass (signed on the front pastedown) with the Henry Sotheran imprint at the bottom of the verso of the front free endpaper; (4), 155 pages. Inserted is a page with the following printed information: "This is No. 893 of the Cosway Bindings invented by J. H. Stonehouse, with Miniatures on Ivory by Miss Currie." Both Stonehouse and Currie have SIGNED the page at the bottom. The book was beautifully rebacked in the past decade or so with a new spine that blends quite well with the covers. The Currie miniature at the front is after the Droeshout Portrait (1622) of Shakespeare used as the frontispiece to the First Folio. The rear miniature is a depiction of Venus and Adonis. Cosway bindings--named after the leading miniaturist of the Regency period, Richard Cosway (1742-1821)--were introduced in the early 1900s by John H.Stonehouse of Henry Sotheran & Company who conceived embedding miniature paintings in the covers of elaborately-tooled bindings. Harrison teamed with the Riviere bindery to create the bindings after his designs. Riviere hired Miss C. B. Currie to create the delicate miniature paintings on ivory inset into the covers and protected by thin panes of glass. Much imitated since, original Cosway bindings such as this, particularly when on a book of some importance, are highly desired. At some point the volume suffered some water damage which is now most visible on the endpapers and first and last few pages of the text as well as slight damage to the portrait of Shakespeare. Still a beautiful binding on a rare and important book in overall Very Good condition [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Additionally, the volume features 16 facsimile images on three pages, printed from woodcut blocks, showing => the evolution of the iconic Estienne printer's device. This copy appears to have the first sectional title-page bound after the first two pages of text instead of proceeding them.    Provenance: Delightfully artistic inked initials "E.L." on front pastedown, with the note "collated & perfect" in the same hand at the end. Most recently in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.         ESTC T99611; Schreiber, Estiennes, 294; Bigmore & Wyman, Bibliography of Printing, II, pp. 14–6.

Pencilled and inked notes on endpapers, evidence of a bookplate removed long ago. Light age-toning with a small stain or two, provenance evidence as above, one leaf with short later inked notes. => Impressive piece of early Estienne scholarship in a very good copy.

         Portrait of Bernard Picart

      Portrait of the engraver Bernard Picart, in an interior. The artist is represented as dressed in a costly robe with a floral motive. He's leaning agains a table on which is a print that he himself made in 1709. This mezzotint is so amazingly detailed that all the inscriptions in it are readable, from those reproduced in the print on the table to the titles of the books in the shelves in the background. On the table also the tools of the engraver. French-born Picart was an extremely refined engraver and his work has been much appreciated by his contemporaries. As demonstrated in this fine portrait he was on the one hand an erudite - among the titles of the books are 'Raphael et la Sveve' and 'COREGE' - and a wealthy artist. Lettered on the bottom: 'NEC VETERA ASPERNERE, NEC INVIDEAS HODIERNIS. / BERNARDUS PICARTUS, Delineator & Sculptor, Stephani Picarti, cui / Romano cognomen, Filius, natus Lutetiae 11 Junii anni MDCLXXIII a J. Marc / Nattier pictus anno MDCCIX & á N. Verkolje l. m. aere expressus Amstelodami MDCCXV'. This is an advanced state; for first state see at the Rijksmuseum cat. RP-P-1911-185. Inscription on the print on the table: 'CORNALINE connue sous le nom de cachet de Michel Ange... ' On the verso collector's mark not in Lugt. Mezzotint on paper with some margin; plate mark: 332 x 242, total: 346 x 254; in outstanding conditions; Wurzbach 7, Nagler 7

Full calf binding with red spine label, raised bands and gilt decorations. Light rubbing to leather, stain to front leather lower right. Speckled edges. Previous owner name scratched out on front flyleaf. Bookplate of "D. de Romand" on front pastedown. Occaisonal early ink underlining and marginal highlights with occasional manuscript notation in a neat hand. Full calf. A first edition of this exceptional work that went through five editions. Many beautifully illustrated plates (27 finely engraved plates plus an additional map plate). "The best illustrated account of the scientific instruments in use at the beginning of the XVIIIth centry, including the compass of proportion, surveying and astronomical instruments, the micrometer, a machine showing solar and lunar eclipses, etc. The whole of the VIIth [section] is on the construction and use of instruments for Navigation, includ. sea charts." (Weil, 32/141) An English Language edition was done by Edmund Stone in 1823 and reprinted several times since. Bion was the Royal Engineer of mathematical instruments."The 'Traite de la construction . des instruments mathematiques' gives a fairly complete list of instruments normally constructed during the first quarter of the eighteenth century.some of the instruments described by Bion - such as astrolabes, marine astrolabes, the jacob staff, and the Davis quadrant - were no longer used . All of his treatises were more for the user and the amateur than for the manufacturer." While well known in his time (partly because of the treatises he published as well as the instruments he made), few of Bion's instruments survive today. (DSB 1/2, p 132-33)Rough English translation of the title: "Deals with construction and the Main uses of Mathematical Instruments With the necessary figures for the understanding of this Treaty. Dedicated to His Royal Highness, The Duke Bishop D'Orleans" Only the 1725 Paris edition found in the Printed Catalogues of the Library of the Royal Astronomical Society (Luther, Martino:2006)The first edition is much scarcer than the later editions in our experience.

De Bosch heeft meegewerkt aan een tweetal dichtprojecten: de vertaling van de fabels van de Duitse schrijver Gellert en een nieuwe berijming van de psalmen, ter vervanging van de verouderde 16e-eeuwse van Datheen.

         A proposal to man the Navy Royal of Great Britain, and raise a nursery for sea-men; which will, 1. Save and get to Her Majesty £300,000 per annum, or thereabouts, during this, or any other war. 2. Save and get to the merchants, during this, or any other war, £500,000 per annum at least, and preserve many of Her ships from perishing. 3. Gain to the nation in general, over and above what is before mentioned, about £200,000 per annum. No man will be a loser, most men gainers: he that hath most land will get most; and where there is now one sailor a scholar, this will make twenty. In some cases, poor men will be great gainers. 4.

         Lex Regia Det er: Den Souveraine Konge=Lov, sat og given af den Stormegtigste Höibaarne Fyrste og Herre Herr Fridrich Den tredie...og Hans Maj. underskreven d. 14. Novemb. 1665. Som...Friderich den Fierde...Allernaadigst haver befalet ved offentlig Tryk at vorde publiceret...den fierde Septemb. Aar 1709.

      (København), 1709. Folio. In contemporary full calf Cambridge-style binding with blindstamped borders. Light wear to extremities. Seven leaves with minor repairs to margins, one leaf with a 15 cm long closed tear, and one leaf with an 30 cm long closed tear, all professionally executed and with no loss of imprint. Margins slightly soiled. 19 leaves, -text and frames engraved. The broad frames that all differ from each other ornamentally depict animals and plants as well as the different trades of the country. A nice copy printed on thick, heavy paper. Housed in a cardboard box.Provenance: From the collection of Danish book collector Viggo Lohse. The present copy was exhibited at 'Dansk Bibliofil-Klubs 50 års Jubilæumsudstilling' in 1992 (The 50 year anniversary exhibition for the Danish Society of Bibliophiles), no. 94. First edition of this landmark work of Danish book production and the constitution of the Danish absolute monarchy. The Royal Law established the absolute right of the Monarch to rule, and it defined the line of royal succession. It was more rigorous than the other monarchal laws of Europe at the time.The text which is written by Peder Griffenfeld is engraved in copper throughout, in order to prevent the possibility of re-printing, pirated editions and text-counterfeiting. Frederik Rostgaard, the King's state archivist who was famous for his excellent taste in books, was in charge of the editing and issuing of the work. In front of the actual law text a leaf is inserted with the portrait of King Frederik III on his horse, and everything, except for the head of the king which was engraved after his death-mask, is executed in the beloved flourishing- or scroll- manner of the time. The titles and the text are engraved throughout by Michael Røg.

         A collection of the several statutes and parts of statutes now in force, relating to High treason, and misprision of high treason.

      London: Pr. by Charles Bill, & the Executrix of Thomas Newcomb, 1709. 12mo (15.5 cm; 6.125"). 113, [1] pp., [7] ff.; 44 pp., [2] ff. Publication of this treatise on high treason followed hard on the heels of the Treason Act 1708 (7 Ann c 21), by which Parliament "harmonized" the laws of high treason in "Great Britain" following the union in 1707 of England and Scotland, each of which had different and sometimes quite distinct concepts of "high treason."    The final part of this small volume bears a title-page reading "A form and method of trial of commoners, in cases of high treason, and misprision of high treason," with the same imprint information at the main title. (A woman tried and convicted, seeking a stay of execution because pregnant, may pray "a Jury of [12] Matrons or Motherly Women" confirm and attest the same; other data are equally particular and evocative.) While the pagination and signature markings of this final part are not continuous from A collection of several statutes, it is clear that the "two" were printed as a whole and are not separate works, although they are sometimes catalogued as if they were and are even sometimes sold as such.    Printed mostly in roman type with some italic, this has headings in gothic and some long passages also in gothic.    Provenance: 18th-century ownership signatures at top of main title-page of J.W. Tarleton and J. Skynner (both lined through), and 19th-century signature of Wm. Saunders. Oldham Free Public Library (Lancs.) stamp on verso of same.         ESTC T136807; Sweet & Maxwell 12.Ia.6 and 12.Ia.10. Late 20th-century quarter brown calf with brown stone-pattern marbled paper sides; all edges gilt. Slim waterstain in upper margin of last four leaves; same leaves foxed. Overall a very good copy.
