         Mémoires pour Rome, sur l'état de la religion chrétienne dans la Chine.

      S.l., 1709-1710, - 4 parties en un fort vol. in-12, titre-frontispice gravé et replié (Ecrits de Mrs des Miss. Etrang. sur l'affaire de la Chine), 240-117-[3]-107-[3]-155-[3] pp., basane brune marbrée, dos à nerfs cloisonné et fleuronné, pièce de titre cerise, tranches mouchetées (reliure de l'époque). Cachets, étiquette de bibliothèque au dos. Bon exemplaire. Recueil bien complet des neuf mémoires qui le composent, ce qui n'est pas si commun (beaucoup d'exemplaires ne présentent pas les trois derniers mémoires - VII, VIII & IX - qui jouissent d'une page de titre et d'une pagination séparées). La plupart des bibliographies donnent le cardinal Jacques-Thomas Maillard de Tournon lui-même (1668-1710), le principal protagoniste de la Querelle des Rites, comme l'auteur de ces relations, mais il est plus probable que la compilation ait été faite par Louis Thiberge ou Tiberge (1650-1730), directeur du Séminaire des Missions étrangères sous le supériorat de Luc Fermanel, et l'un des premiers intéressés à l'affaire, qui se révéla très préjudiciable à l'établissement de la rue du Bac. C'est d'ailleurs l'attribution que retient le Catalogue général de la BnF. Quoi qu'il en soit, ce recueil forme une pièce absolument capitale sur la mission du légat pontifical en Chine (le début de sa mission, concernant les rites malabares et qui se déroula de novembre 1703 à juin 1704 en Inde, n'est pas concerné). Comme l'on sait, elle se solda par un échec retentissant, tant auprès de l'Empereur Kangxi (que le légat put rencontrer au cours des deux audiences du 31 décembre 1705 et 29 juin 1706), que des établissements jésuites, qui savaient la vanité des décisions pontificales concernant les pratiques inaugurées dans leurs missions à la suite de Mateo Ricci. Exilé de Pékin le 26 août 1706, puis emprisonné à Macao (17 mai 1707), l'infortuné prélat mourut sur place le 8 juin 1710, sans avoir pu retourner en Europe, et sans que le chapeau de cardinal, qui lui fut accordé pendant sa détention, lui servît de grande consolation. I. Premier mémoure. Sur le voyage de M. le cardinal de Tournon à la Chine (pp. 5-47). - II. Second mémoire. Sur la lettre que M. le cardinal de Tournon a écrite à M. l'évêque de Conon, pour le consoler dans sa prison (pp. 48-78). - III. Troisième mémoire. Sur la réponse des Jésuites à la lettre de M. le cardinal de Tournon (pp. 79-108). - IV. Quatrième mémoire. Sur le décret d'Alexandre VII (pp. 109-158). - V. Cinquième mémoire. Sur les deux tribunaux, celui du Pape & celui de l'Empereur dans la Chine (pp. 159-197). - VI. Sixième mémoire. Sur les lettres ou caractères de la Chine (pp. 198-240). - VII. Septième mémoire. Suite du voyage de M. le cardinal de Tournon. Son retour de Péquin à Canton (pp. 3-117). - VIII. Huitième mémoire. Sur le refus que font les Iésuites de se soumettre au décret de N.S.P. le Pape, pris dans son sens propre & naturel, portant condamnation des superstitions & des idolâtries chinois (pp. 3-107). - IX. Neuvième mémoire. Pièces originales dans l'affaire de la Chine (pp. 3-155). Cordier, Sinica, 912. Exemplaire de la Bibliotheca Costeana (de Pierre Coste, 1668-1747, ?), avec vignette ex-libris armoriée (un chevron accompagné de trois merlettes) contrecollée sur les premières gardes.

         Pharmacopoeia collegii regalis medicorum Londinensis.London, for Joseph Johnson and [printed by] Charles Richard Hake, Rotterdam. 1788. 8vo. Slightly later half, tanned sheepskin,

      - ESTC T201275 (6 copies); this edition not in Blake; STCN; Wellcome. Rare sixth edition of the London pharmacopoeia, the first edition influenced by enlightenment science, printed in Rotterdam. The sixth edition was the first to use the system of binomial plant nomenclature devised by Linnaeus in his Systemae Naturae. More important was the omission of most of the animal materia medica (various parts of animals which included excrement), theriacs and mithridates. This reflected the critique of the English physician William Heberden (1710-1801), who in 1746 had successfully showed that that the belief in theriacs and mithridates, which were believed to be panaceas, was based upon a number of mistakes. Heberden's critique came too late for the pharmacopoeia of 1746, but the theriacs and mithridates were almost completely absent from the 1788-edition. Among the new medicines in 1788, was Robert James's patented fever powder, one of the most popular 18th-century patent medicines which was used up until the 20th-century.With owner's inscription on title-page and a partially trimmed-off marginal manuscript note on p. 127. Binding cracked at hinges, spine cracked, affecting title-label; front endpaper loose. Slight foxing throughout. Internally still a good copy.

         Virgil's Aeneis, Translated into Scottish Verse,[...] A new Edition. Wherein the Many Errors of the Former are Corrected, and the Defects Supply'd, from an Excellent Manuscript. To Which is Added a Large Glossary, Explaining the Difficult Words: Which may Serve for a Dictionary to the Old Scottish Language. And to the Whole is Prefix'd an Exact Account of the Author's Life and Writings, from the Best Histories and Records.

      Folio, pp. [viii], 19, [i], iv, [iv], 3-236, ff. 237-240, pp. 241-394, 397-486 [xcvi]. Complete despite pagination. With initial and final blank leaves. Two fairly long closed tears, affecting text but with no loss, to leaves 2D and 2U; pp. 189-92 misbound after p. 76, with a note to that effect (in an old hand) to p. 188; sporadic toning as usual with this rather poor-quality paper, some substantial ink smudges to pp. 381, 394, 395 affecting but not obscuring text; occasional light spotting. Contemporary brown calf, raised bands, reddish morocco gilt title label to spine, edges sprinkled red. Spine repaired at head and tail with conspicuous cloth tape, joints and edges rubbed, corners worn, a few marks and scrapes to boards, ffep slightly grubby and loosening, a very good copy that would benefit from more expert repair.The arrangement of the preliminaries varies from copy to copy. The preliminaries here are arranged thus: titlepage; titlepage to 1553 ed.; list of subscribers; 'The Life of Gawin Douglas'; 'The Judgment and Testimonies'; Preface. The main text begins on p. 3 ( A2); according to the ESTC, the title-page to the 1553 ed. (unsigned) may have been intended to be pp. 1-2. Second edition of the first translation of Virgil's 'Aeneid' into Scottish. This edition corrected the first printing (1553), and the Edinburgh philologist Thomas Ruddiman added an elaborate glossary. This glossary was the basis for the antiquary John Jamieson's 'Etymological Dictionary of the Scottish Language' (1808). The poet Gavin Douglas (?1475-1522), Bishop of Dunkeld and third son of the earl of Angus, "was one of the first to draw the distinction between Scots and 'Inglis'" (OCEL). He was unusual amongst his contemporaries in concentrating solely on studying the vernacular, rather than producing books in Latin. The 'Life' of Gavin Douglas by Bishop Sage, appended here, is one of the main sources for the author's biography.

The Homanns produced a Neuer Atlas in 1714, a Grosser Atlas in 1737, and an Atlas Maior with about 300 maps in 1780. They also issued a special Atlas of Germany with full sized plans of principal cities, school atlases and an Atlas of Silesia in 1750 with 20 maps. Condition: Good, given age.

         Voyages et Avantures de Jaques Massé

      Bordeaux: James l'Aveugle, 1710. First edition. An important imaginary voyage to Australia: a 'landmark' in the development of the French voyage novel (Atkinson), in its original full calf decorated binding. A Robinsonade account, which predates Defoe. It is complete with the ship wreck, exploration, conflict with local inhabitants, stand off and final rescue by a passing ship. It is a reasonable representation of the Australian continent and its challenges, along with a realistic estimation of the importance of mining and irrigation to Australia that "foreshadow what has actually come to pass in modern Australia." (Friederich) The title page is falsely dated 1710. In his deep analyses of Tyssot de Patot and his publications, Aubrey Rosenberg has concluded that this 1710 printing, with the armillary sphere device on the title page with the base pointing to the left, is indeed the first edition, and was published between 1714 and 1718. "Robinson Crusoe" first appeared in 1719. 12mo, (viii), 508pp. Bound in the original full brown calf binding, gilt spine in 6 compartments, raised bands, gilt device decoration on spine and outer dentelles. Bookplate of Sir John Dashwood King on the inside front pastedown. Rosenberg "A" Gove, 217-219; Cioranescu 62587; Barbier IV, 1103; Atkinson, 'The Extraordinary Voyage in French Literature', p. 70; Rosenberg, pp. 84-5. A handsome copy in its original binding.

         HISTORIA DE LOS MUY NOBLES, y Esforzados Cavalleros Tablante de Ricamonte, y Jofre, Hijo del Conde Donasson. Compuesta por el Varon Felipe Camus.

      En Valladolid, en la imprenta de la Viuda de Joseph de Rueda, 1710. - in-12. 152pp. Plein vélin souple du temps, titre manuscrit au dos, traces de liens. Célèbre roman de chevalerie initialement paru en 1513 et dont les éditions anciennes sont toutes introuvables et précieuses. Cette adaptation espagnole du roman provençal de Jaufré, elle-même inspirée d'une version française donnée par Philippe Camus, connut un grand succès en Espagne tout au long du 16e siècle. La rareté des éditions anciennes est telle que même la riche bibliothèque de Salvá ne possédait pas d'édition antérieure à celle-ci, également très rare. Cette édition de colportage porte sur le titre une vignette gravée sur bois représentant un chevalier en armure brandissant une lance, identique à celle qui figure notamment sur les premières éditions valenciennes de Don Quichotte de 1606 et 1616. Petite tache d'encre ancienne sur le titre. Quelques rousseurs. Très bon exemplaire dans son vélin souple d'origine.

         Historia medicinae, In qua, Si non omnia, pleraque saltem, Medicorum ratiocinia, dogmata, hypotheses, sectae, &c. quae ab exordio medicinae usque ad nostra tempora inclaruerunt, pertractantur.

      Joannes Wolters 1710 - First edition. Octavo (overall 210 mm x 130 mm, the pages 197 x 118 mm). Contemporary full vellum over boards, tan calf title-piece on spine gilt-lettered within gilt rule and palmette roll, all edges cut and sprinkled red, green and gold silk headbands and marker ribbon. Engraved frontispiece of “Ioannis Conradi Barscusen Symposiaca” by D. Coster after Van Wyck, title in red and black with woodcut vignette, woodcut headpieces to dedication and first dialogue, a few decorated opening initials. Collates [18], 632, [36] pp., complete: frontispiece, *7, **2, A8 - Ss8, Tt6; [1 l. (binder’s blank)], 1 l. (frontispiece verso), 1 l. (title), 3 ll. (dedication), 3 ll. (preface), 1 l. (expostulatory poem), 2 ll. (contents and quotation from Augustine, de Civitate Dei), pp. [1] – 610 (XIX Dialogi), 610 – 632 (Oratio de Nepenthe), 18 ll. (index, with “addenda & menda” on last 2 pp.), [1 l. (binder’s blank)]. Front cover tips slightly bumped, spine ends slightly compressed, minor spotting on covers, separation of pastedowns from board at lower 25 mm of front gutter and upper 25 mm of rear gutter, repaired loss on fore-edge of front blank, small brown spot on frontispiece offsetting onto upper framing line of title vignette, an unusually fine copy notwithstanding these overall negligible faults, bright, tight and remarkably unblemished considering its age. The frontispiece of this volume, inscribed “D.Coster f. t Van Wyck Deli.” for the engraver and illustrator David Coster (1686-1752) after the Haarlem painter Thomas [Van] Wyck (1616-1677), depicts a wreathed Hippocrates with the Staff of Asclepius leading a symposium of five apparently cloned savants seated around a table. These figures handle, respectively, a scalpel and skeleton, an armillary sphere, a retort and long-necked flask (erupting fire?) and geometrical tools; the center foreground figure sits on a stool carved with hexagrams, astride astrological charts on the ground. The figures in this “Ioannis Conradi Barscusen Symposiaca” may be the manifestations of Barchusen’s philosophy cloned into one person, embodying Barchusen’s own evolution as a seminal figure in the study of chemistry as a branch of natural philosophy. For Barchusen iatrochemistry as curative medicine was a part of an experimental natural philosophy which predated that of Boerhaave at Leyden by several years. The thrust of Dialogi XVI through XIX, the last quarter of the book, is on the seventeenth century, mostly iatrochemical progression, with, nevertheless, recognition of the impact of the anatomists, Cartesians and mechanical physicists. At the outset of his Praefatio Barchusen extols among his predecessors Daniel Le Clerc (“unicum Dan. Clericum, Virum consummatae eruditionis”), the doctor of Geneva often deemed the father of modern medical history. In fact, Le Clerc’s first edition in 1696 of his Histoire de la Médecine extends only to Galen, and the contemporary anatomical and physiological writings surveyed in his Bibliotheca anatomica (1685 and 1699, with Jean-Jacques Manget) became part of Le Clerc’s revised and expanded Histoire only in 1723. Of the histories preceding John Freind’s History of Physick (London, 1725-6), Philip Storr could count only Barchusen’s Historia of 1710 as a contemporary historical narrative, not merely a catalogue of biography or bibliography, having the substance of the ensuing accounts of Le Clerc and Freind (“Sir John Freind (1675-1728) M.D. Pioneer Historian of Medicine,” Isis, vol. 27, no. 3 (Nov. 1937), pp. 453-474, at 453-4). This edition, now notably rare both at public sale and in trade, was also issued by Jansonnius van Waesberge and R. et G. Wetstenius of Amsterdam, with variant titles but otherwise apparently identical. No priority of issue has been noted. The present outstanding copy was acquired from Jeremy Norman & Co.

         Sancti Patris Nostri Joannis Chrysostomi Archi-Episcopi Constantinopolitani de Sacerdotio. Libri VI. Accessere Dissertationes Quaedam Prooemiales de Dignitate Sacerdotali, Item S. Chrysostomi Vita e Celebrr. Cavii Historia Literaria Desumpta.

      Edm. Jeffery, 1710. 1st Edition . Hardcover. Good. Bound in full calf. clvii, (11), 301, (3)p. Publisher's catalogue to the rear. ESTC: T172307. The Greek text with Latin translation of St John Chrysostom's 'De Sacerdotio'. Also known as 'On the Priesthood'. Early Christian church text. Cappadocian Fathers. First thus. Includes a life of Chrysostom and dissertations on the Christian priesthood. Contains all six books. "Book I describes the events...which preceded Basil's consecration: also his visit to Crysostom, and Chrysistom's defence against his friend's reproaches. Book II descibes the heavy responsibilities of the priestly office: and shews that while Basil is fitted for that office, Chrysostom is unworthy of holding it. Those who nominated him, instead of resenting his refusal of the honour, may congratulate themselves that he did not bring discredit upon them by accepting it and then proving his unfitness. Book III sets forth the dignity of the priestly office, and the faults of Chrysostom's character, which would have entailed disaster to him and others. The qualities for which we ought to look in a Bishop, and his various duties also described. Book IV shews that the priest, or bishop, must be a stalwart defender of the faith against heretics: and contains an eloquent eulogy of St Paul in regard to his skill in expounding Christian doctrine. Book V emphasizes the need of careful preparation before preaching. Book VI describes the duties of the priest as contrasted with those of a monk. The responsibilities of the priest are shewn to be greater, for the souls of others are in his keeping.The fierce character of the warfare carried on by Satan against mankind is also delineated. The book ends with a promise given by Chrysostom that he will assist Basil by his counsel in fulfilling the duties of his office." - Introduction of 'De Sacerdotio of St. John Chrysostom' edited by John Arthbuthnot Nairn, 1906. Previously owned by Rev. Hugh Scott Charles, with his ink inscription to the front free endpaper, dated 1901. Condition: Good due to joints. Joints starting. Some bumping.

With near Forty Figures of the Magnificent Entertainments at Coronations, Instalment, Balls, Weddings, &c. at Court To which are added, Bills of Fare for Every Season in the Year.

      London: 'Printed for Abel Roper, and sold by John Morphew', 1710. - 8vo (174 x 104mm), pp. [16 (half-title, blank, title, blank, preface, contents, illustrations)], 127, [1 (blank)], [12 (bills of fare)], [4 (publisher's advertisements)]; 34 (of 35) engraved plates with bills of fare, of which 30 folding; some light marking, some plates with short tears (occasional old repairs), or cropped, sometimes cutting along folds, half-title partially detached, lacking plate opposite p. 35; contemporary British Cambridge-panelled calf, boards with blind-ruled panels with floral cornerpieces, spine in 6 compartments between raised bands with blind double rules, traces of sealing wax on pastedowns; lacking free endpapers, rubbed and scuffed causing some losses, joints cracked, old repairs at spine-ends, lacking endpapers, otherwise a very good copy; provenance: Christopher Hogwood.First edition, Roper and Morphew issue (another issue of the first edition was published in London by Maurice Atkins in the same year). Patrick Lamb (c. 1650-1708/9) began his career in the royal household as a young servant in the pastry. Following his appointments as master cook to the queen consort and sergeant of his majesty's pastry in ordinary in 1677, he was finally, in 1683, promoted to master cook to the monarch and held the position until the end of his life, serving King James II, King William III and Queen Mary, and Queen Anne.'His services as a royal cook encompassed the provision of prepared dishes for daily and extraordinary consumption by the monarch and his guests at table. He also undertook provisioning contracts for the pastry and kitchen departments of the household, supplying commodities such as flour, eggs, and condiments. Lamb appears to have continued to hold his father's privileges in purveying wine, spirits, and tobacco at the court, revealed in a royal warrant of January 1683' (ODNB), and his skills were particularly effectively shown in special events such as coronations, weddings, and other official occasions. 'Most spectacular of all were his arrangements for the coronation feasts of James II in 1685, William and Mary in 1689, and Anne in 1702, recorded in extensive detail in the lord steward's accounts for those years. The 1689 coronation cost £4931 to stage, and Lamb was presented with £100 for his pains in its planning' (ibid.) – these feasts and banquets provide the foundation of Lamb's successful posthumous book, Royal Cookery.'It was not long before Royal Cookery set the fashion in culinary affairs for those who could afford to follow his extravagant advice. The chefs in charge of the kitchens of the wealthiest aristocrats and landowners in the early part of the eighteenth century were soon designating their dishes for the larger banquets as being "after Queen Anne's fashion"' (Quayle, p. 63). Lamb's recipes include one of the earliest to make use of the newly created champagne wine. 'Patrick Lambe [sic] was the foremost exponent of haute cuisine [ ]. By the time of his death in 1709 he had more than earned the title of "King of Royal Cooks"' (ibid., p. 65).Bitting, p. 271; ESTC T91554; Lehmann pp. 434-435; Maclean p. 88; Oxford, pp. 52-53; Simon, BG 939 (note); Vicaire col. 490 (note); cf.: Cagle 89 (Atkins issue, lacking half-title); Pennell p. 144 (Atkins issue, imperfect).

         Historiae Societatis Jesu. Pars quinta, tomus posterior ab anno Christi MDXCI ad MDCXVI

      Romae: Typographia Georgii Plachi, 1710. [8], 974 pagine. 37x25 cm.Bellissima rilegatura settecentesca in pelle di scrofa con impressioni a secco, leggermente scurita e con abrasioni diffuse. Due dei quattro fermagli originali presenti sul piatto anteriore. Timbro di biblioteca estinta sul frontespizio. Lievi bruniture e alcune fioriture all'interno. [M211]L'opera si riferisce agli anni che vanno dal 1591 al 1616 e riguarda l'operato dei Gesuiti in Europa (Francia, Italia, Transilvania, Inghilterra, Scozia, Irlanda) nonché in Cina, India, Giappone, Filippine e Molucche, con alcuni cenni relativi all'Africa e alle Americhe. Di particolare importanza quanto riferito in relazione ai culti cinesi e indiani, circostanza che paradossalmente portò alla messa all'indice dell'opera nel 1722, per aver contraddetto in alcuni passaggi i dettami della bolla papale De ritibus siniensibus che proibiva la divulgazione dei riti cinesi e malabarici. Joseph de Jouvency (Parigi, 1643 - Roma, 1719), gesuita, poeta, filologo e storico, dopo aver insegnato presso il prestigioso liceo Louis-Le-Grand di Parigi, venne chiamato a Roma dai suoi superiori per portare a termine la monumentale storia della Compagnia di Gesù, la cui pubblicazione era stata iniziata da Niccolò Orlandini. Lavorò a questa impresa per circa dieci anni; nel 1710 venne pubblicato questo volume a conclusione di tutta l'opera.

Small woodcut arms of Portugal on title page, woodcut headpiece, five-line woodcut initial, large woodcut tailpiece (vase with flowers). Good to very good condition. 38 pp., (1 blank l.). *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. Letters full of insults and complaints from the French plenipotentiary, Melchior de Polignac, and the States General of the Dutch Republic, all dated late July 1710. These were part of the rancorous negotiations to end the War of the Spanish Succession. Polignac famously twitted the Dutch that French and Spanish treaty negotiations with the Allies (Great Britain, Savoy, Austria, Habsburg Empire, Dutch Republic) were de vous, chez vous, sans vous: about you, in your country, but without you. The Dutch were particularly concerned about the fate of the Spanish Netherlands, which ended up in control of the Austrians.The War of the Spanish Succession (1701-1714) was ended by a series of treaties: Utrecht in 1713, Rastatt in 1714, Baden in 1714. Many overseas possessions of the nations concerned were involved, including the Amazon River basin, Colonia do Sacramento in Uruguay, and Canada. As a result of these treaties, the idea of a ?balance of power? (a very new concept) became a significant factor in European politics.*** Not in Innocêncio or Fonseca.

      - [Kyoto 1710, Nagata Chohbei]. Blue original paper covers, title slip, covers rubbed: some blue loss, woodblock printed 1 m. 44.5 x 1 m. 20 cm. accordion folded, very good impres- sion, excellent registry, white hand-made paper,clean solid. *** *** *** . . . AN EARLY BUDDHIST MAP OF THE WORLD . . . ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS EARLY MAPS . . . A GRAND & DELUXE WALL MAP . *** An excellent fine early example of a woodblock printed map, with Chinese text. This is the first Japanese world map drawn according to Buddhist cosmology & the prototype for all other later Buddhist world maps done in Japan until the end of the 19th century. . *** THE ARTIST AND AUTHOR: Hotan [aka Zuda Rokashi 1654-1728], was the author, artist, editor, scholar and Buddhist priest, he was also the famous founder of Kegonji Buddhist Temple in Kyoto. He was an eminent Buddhist priest and scholar who reconciled new information from the West with Chinese sources. The work is signed "Rokashi," which means "mapmaker and editor." . *** This map gave the hitherto isolated Japanese "a way to see a wider view of the world, but one that they could easily understand.his map was widely acclaimed for the numerous place names he furnished for Indian & Asian areas. very rare in Western maps." Quoted from Namba, see below. . *** The map is centered on Jambudvipa the mythological heart of Buddhist cosmography in India. This very vital spot is noted by a horned animal who's breath is a long spiral of flame emanating from the most sacred & holy Buddhist place on the earth. Europe appears as a string of islands. A land bridge connects China with an unnamed continent to its East, which "must undoubtedly be a reflection of America" in the opinion of the celebrated Japanese scholars. . *** Per Rudolph [see below], on p.92, she states: "This map is descended from a line of Japanese manuscript maps based on the journey of the Chinese priest Xuangzang's pilgrimage to India in search of scriptures. Scholars believe that the maps were originally copied out as a from of devotion--a pilgrimage of the spirit if not the body--and that later versions like this, which includes South America, demonstrate an attempt to reconcile sacred geography with the examples of European cartography that were reaching Japan through Dutch traders and, via China, Jesuit missionaries." . *** WHAT ONE MODERN CARTOGRAPHIC SCHOLAR SAYS: Cartographic scholars Prof. Oda discuss the Northern most Japanese island of Ezo where the Ainu lived is located on this map just slightly South of the mystery continent which is actually American. Africa is a diminutive land mass. To the far West is a small island empire identified as "Country of Western Women" along with other mountainous island kingdoms, likely England, Scotland and Ireland. The map text includes a list of Buddhist Sutras, Chinese histories, literary classics &c. All drawn by Hotan, which "Illustrates the fusion of Buddhist dogma and Western geographical knowledge." See Oda below. . *** PROTYPE MAP: The basic outlines of the map are copied from a Buddhist prototype, the Gotenjiku Zu [MAP OF THE FIVE INDIES], whose characteristic features was the shield-shaped continent of Jambu-dvipa. Jambu-dvipa was the habitable world according to the Buddhist cosmographical view. In this example the sacred lake of Anavatapta can be seen in the centre, from which flow four rivers in a whirlpool pattern. Jambu-dvipa can be equated topographically with the Indian peninsula, Lake Anavatapta symbolizes Lake Manasarovar in the Himalayas and the four rivers represent the Ganges, Oxus, Indus and Tarim. In order to preserve the traditional Buddhist outlines and at the same time incorporate the new knowledge of Western geography, the European and American countries are shown as small islands on the periphery of Jambu-dvipa. Although an amalgam of discordant ideas, the map became one of the most popular and widely circulated works of the day and served as a model for all later Buddhist maps

         De Antiquissima Italorum Sapientia Ex Linguae Latinae Originibus Eruenda Libri Tres.

      Naples: Felicis Mosca,, 1710. Liber Primus Metaphysicus. Duodecimo (163 x 90 mm). Contemporary vellum, spine lettered in manuscript, edges uncut. Contemporary or near-contemporary ownership inscription to title page. Tanning and a little spotting to spine and extremities, slight wear to lower edge of front board, some very minor dampstain to front free endpapers, foxing and a few chips to contents, an excellent copy of this scarce edition. First edition of the Italian philosopher, historian, and jurist's fullest statement of the verum factum principle, the first book in the unrealised series of three outlining his anti-Cartesian philosophical system. The second and third books, Liber Secundus Physicus and Liber Tertius Moralis, were never completed for unknown reasons. Liber Primus Metaphysicus "remained virtually unknown for over a hundred years, although during Vico's lifetime it was widely read in Neapolitan academic circles" (Palmer, p. x). It was not translated from the Latin into Italian until 1816, and it was only reprinted in 1828. Vico's writings gained popularity during the nineteenth century, and his impact on the modern philosophy of history, culture, and mythology cannot be understated. Marx cites Vico in Das Kapital and Trotsky quotes him on the first page of his History of the Russian Revolution; Coleridge and Yeats were enthusiastic disseminators of Vichian ideas; and Joyce composed Finnegans Wake using Vico's four-part cyclical theory of civilisation. Liber Primus Metaphysicus contains the first printing of Vico's Latin aphorism "verum esse ipsum factum" ("the true is the made") for which he would become famous. The 1710 edition is extremely rare, and there is only one previous auction record from 2008 in which it was sold bound with two other works.

        FÜRTH., "1 Munghoff. 2 Schnidling, 3 Doß. 4 Fürth". Blick auf die Orte, im Vordergrund Landleute bei der Ernte, darüber zwei Zweige "Lauro".

      Kol. Kupferstich aus "Nürnbergische Hesperiden" von J.C. Volkamer, um 1710, 30 x 19 cm. Johann Christoph Volkamer (1644 - 1720) war ein Nürnberger Kaufmann und Botaniker, der im Stadtteil Gostenhof einen Garten unterhielt. Seine Leidenschaft galt den Zitrusfrüchten. 1708 veröffentlichte er ein Werk mit 115 Kupferstichen, die "Nürnbergischen Hesperiden". Einzigartig sind die hochformatigen Darstellungen durch die Verbindung der botanischen Darstellungen mit Ansichten der Stadt Nürnberg. Besonders wertvoll sind die Darstellungen von heute beschädigten oder zerstörten Objekten, von denen sonst keine historische Ansicht vorhanden ist. Die "Hesperiden" sind deshalb eine geschichtliche Quelle ersten Ranges. - Schönes, kräftiges Kolorit. BAYERN, Franken
