         Les Indes Orientales sous le nom dêqueles est compris l'empire du Grand Mogol, les deux presqu'isles de ça et de là le Gange, les Maldives, et l'isle de Ceylan

      1721 - Grande et belle carte des Indes Orientales, couvrant l'Inde, le Tibet, la péninsule indochinoise, la Malaisie, Sumatra, les parties ouest de Java et Bornéo, ainsi que la Chine jusqu'à Canton. Elle est issue de l'Atlas ou recüeil de cartes géographiques, publié par Nicolas de Fer en 1709. A la mort de ce dernier en 1720, et à la suite du partage de son fonds géographique, la carte fut publiée par son gendre Guillaume Danet en 1721. La carte est ornée d'une rose des vents et accompagnée d'une table des longitudes et latitudes des principales villes des régions représentées. Dans l'île de Shangchuan, près de Macao, il est mentionné que Saint François Xavier décéda sur cette île en 1552. En Inde sont signalées les mines de diamants. A Lassa au Tibet figure la mention "Siège du Grand Lama chef de tous les lamas des Tartares". Au royaume d'Angut, actuelle Mongolie, sont mentionnés les "Campemens de Tartares appelés ordes ou hordes", et une "montagne d'où l'on tire de l'or". Il s'agit là de la seconde carte des Indes Orientales dressée par Nicolas de Fer, mais la première de grand format. Une première version de format plus petit avait paru en 1702 dans l'Atlas Curieux. Géographe, graveur et éditeur français, Nicolas de Fer a produit près de 600 cartes, très recherchées pour leur qualité décorative. Son activité fut reprise par ses gendres Danet et Bénard. Contours aquarellés à l'époque. Très rare.

         [Magna Carta etc.] English Liberties, Or The Free-Born Subject's Inheritance: Containing Magna Charta . . . The Habeas Corpus Act, And Several Other Statutes

      Boston: Printed by J. Franklin, for N. Buttolph, B. Eliot, and D. Henchman, 1721 FIRST AMERICAN EDITION. This volume, one of the very first law books printed in colonial America, contains the first American printing of Magna Carta and other fundamental documents of individual liberty in Anglo-American law. Magna Carta has become "a sacred text, the nearest approach to an irrepealable 'fundamental statute' that England has ever had" (Pollock & Maitland). Benjamin Franklin helped to print this book as a 15-year old apprentice at his brother James's Boston printing shop. This was probably Franklin's first exposure to the principles of individual liberty to which he devoted much of his life. The book "contained the most important documents and statements in English history and law concerning liberty, property, and the rights of the individual ... Franklin knew its contents thoroughly" (Lemay). English Liberties "was less a practical handbook than a statement and record of the great legal and political principles which formed the proud inheritance of the British peoples at home and abroad. These matters were ever present in the minds of the colonists" (Wroth). Thomas Jefferson owned two editions of English Liberties, and the book was in many other libraries of the Founders. Original blind-tooled sheep over wooden boards, expertly rebacked. Some soiling and wear. Cloth case.

         Oeuvres diverses de physique et de méchanique

      Pierre Vander Aa, Leide 1721 - Plein veau blond glacé de l'époque, dos à cinq nerfs orné et doré, tranches rouges, gardes en papier marbré. Cinq parties en deux volumes in quarto (257x195 mm), (2),78,321,(1bl)/(2), [323]-876 pages. Portrait dépliant, 17 planches hors texte et 34 in texte. Exemplaires bien complet des deux feuillets supplémentaires numérotés 160a à 160d au volume 1 et des 18 feuillets numérotés 684a à 684mm au volume 2 Reliure légèrement frottée, coiffes et coins restaurés Papier bruni et rousseurs Claude et Pierre Perrault, sont les frères du célèbre écrivain et conteur Charles Perrault. Première édition des oeuvres complètes de Pierre et Claude Perrault. On y retrouve en particulier, "De l'origine de Fontaine" (eo en 1674) de Pierre Perrault. Ce traité est un ouvrage fondateur de l'hydrologie moderne. Jusque là, on croyait que l'eau de la mer pénétrai sous terre formant des lacs souterrain qui alimentaient ensuites les sources et rivières. Pierre Perrault réfuta ces théories. A partir des mesures des précipations annuelles, il en déduit qu'elle étaient suffisantes pour alimenter les rivères étant ainsi à l'origine du concept de cycle hydrologique, en représentant correctement le rôle de l’évaporation, de la transpiration, des infiltrations et du ruissellement de surface. On retrouve aussi les travaux de Pierre Perrault, membre de l’Académie royale des sciences dès sa fondation en 1666. En tant qu'anatomiste il donna des descriptions précises de nombreuses expèces. Il donna une théorie de la circulation de la sève dans les plantes, eronnée, mais qui eu une grande influence à l'époque. En accousique, Perrault rejète le concept des ondes sonores. Il pensait que le son devait être compris comme une agitation qui apparaissait dans un espace réduit et était produit par l'impact de particules. En tant qu'architecte, on lui doit la colonnade du Louvre, l’Observatoire de Paris et l’Arc de triomphe du faubourg Saint-Antoine. Il a inventé diverses machines décrites dans cet ouvrage, dont certaines ont servi à la réalisation des colonnades du Louvres.

         A Collection of Calculations and Remarks relating to the South Sea Scheme & Stock . [bound with:] Some Computations relating to the Proposed Transferring of Eighteen Millions of the Fund of the South Sea Company . [Bound with:] A Computation of the Value of South-Sea Stock

      London 1721 - 119,[3],121-140; 11, [1]; 23, [1]pp. Contemporary marbled paper covered boards, rebacked to style with period smooth tan calf Provenance: Kirkleatham Library (early booklabel) Important collection of works regarding the South Sea Bubble, written by a noted early critic. The first work bound into the above consists of four parts, each with separate titles and preceded by a general title as above and a dedication leaf: Some calculations relating to the proposals made by the South-Sea Company 1720 (pp.5-19); Some seasonable considerations for those, who are desirous, . to become proprietors of South-Sea stock 1720 (pp.21-35); Several calculations and remarks relating to the South-Sea scheme 1720 (pp.37-119); and An appendix to Mr Hutcheson's calculations. (pp.[2]-140). In the rear are two additional separately-printed works on the South Sea scheme. With no publisher or bookseller information on the titles, it is believed that Hutcheson's works were self-financed and distributed gratis. The first work above, published in March 1720 at the beginning of the frenzy, presciently forewarns against the rampant speculation and suggests the South Sea scheme to be a fraud. The final two works bound into this example were written in the midst or shortly following the fall in price of the stock, and detail some of the valuations and losses. See Dale, The First Crash (Princeton University Press, 2014) for a detailed discussion of Hutcheson, who he regards as the "hero" of the South Sea Bubble.

      first edition (thus)4to.[8], 111, [1 (blank)]pp. including the half-title, contemporary boldly mottled calf, double gilt fillet border on sides, spine panelled by raised bands with panels attractively gilt decorated, dark russet label, minor local silverfish damage to sides and front joint, slight cracking to front joint, else a very good handsome fresh copy.Rare.BRADSHAW 5524COPAC and OCLC together locate copies only in B.L., Cambridge (Bradshaw copy), Manchester, Glasgow, Bibliotheque Nationale and Univ. Dresden. N.L.I. holds a defective and mutilated copy."A rare volume", Lowndes (who describes a copy without the half-title). Broudin (d.1680), a Franciscan writer and lecturer, was born into the Bruodin (or MacBrody) family of Ballyhogan, Co. Clare, who were traditional chroniclers and genealogists to the O'Brien Kings of Thomond. After an education at the Irish college in Rome he moved in 1650 to Prague to join the Irish Franciscan community there. However in 1651 he left the Irish community and transferred to the Bohemian province where he lectured in theology and philosophy and occupied several influential positions. In 1675, accused of lobbying to become its provincial or head, he was expelled from the Bohemian province and rejoined the Irish province in Prague. He published there several theological and political works in the 1660s and 1670s of which Propugnaculum Catholicæ Veritatis (1669) is the most important. Bruodin's principal and polemical purpose in writing that massive work (circa 1200 pages) and extremely rare work much of which was devoted to Irish affairs and in particular to a spirited defence of Irish Catholicism, was to refute the writings of Thomas Carew, another Irish emigré priest who was based in Vienna and who had published a history of Ireland, Lyra sive Anacephalaeosis (1651 and second edition 1666). Carew by criticising Rinniccini, the critically influential papal nuncio to the Irish Confederate Catholics in the 1640s, had greatly offended many in the Irish emigré community. Bruodin supported Rinuccini's fundamentalist stance of non-accomodation with Ormond, the protestant Lord Lieutenant, and in the Propugnaculum attacked Carew's political views and the factual accuracy of the Lyra. A bitter and unedifying series of counter-attacking publications from both men ensued. This 1721 work consists of some passages from Propugnaculum Catholicæ Veritatis with some additions by the editor, one of the O'Neills. A reading of the 'Approbatio' to this book (where the author's name is spelt Brondin) seems to indicate that this is definitely a separate work, possibly previously unpublished, but Bradshaw said that it was "a garbled and falsified collection of certain passages from Propugnaculum .. with a few fresh things inserted by the editor". That editor was however the son of the exiled Phelim O'Neill so that this book, in either case, is a useful source on the current thinking of the leaders of the Irish emigré community, and any editorial deviation from the earlier version would be of special interest for that very reason. Our Latin is not good enough for more than speculation here, but whatever the truth in that regard this is a very rare book indeed. The bookplate is probably that of Lady Evelyn, a member of the Evelyn family, descendants of John Evelyn whose library was sold by Christie's in 1977 and which contained a number of books with the bookplate of a Lady Evelyn.

Decorative title cartouche and strapwork cartouche to Advertisement with scale below to upper sheet; Lower sheet with additional title to upper blank margin; scale to lower left ; Inset plan of environs of Nice to lower right. Dark impression; bright full wash colour; printed on heavy paper; light toning; Covens & Mortier as a firm existed between 1721-1778, taking over the business of Pierrre Mortier. Johannes / Jean Covens and Cornelius Mortier were brothers- in- law following the former's marriage to Mortier's sister Agatha in 1721, when they also formally went in to partnership. Under the Covens and Mortier imprint, Cornelius and Jean republished the works of the great 17th and early 18th century Dutch and French cartographers De L'Isle, Allard, Jansson, & De Wit. The firm would become one of the most prolific Dutch publishing concerns of the 18th century. The company would pass down through the Covens family as Mortier had no children, changing the name to Covens & Zoon until Pieter Mortier IV a great grandson of the original founder joined the firm and saw the name restored to Mortier Covens & Zoon. ( See Koeman I p45). Guillaume de l'Isle (1675-1726) was the son of a cartographer and pupil of Jean Dominique Cassini, who, among other important contributions, aligned the study of astronomy to the study of geography. Under Cassini's direction, observations were made from locations all over the world that enabled longitudinal calculations to be made with much greater accuracy. De l'Isle carried on this exacting work with remarkable dedication and integrity, constantly revising and improving his maps. While precision was his primary goal, his maps are invariably elegant and attractive. The French cartographer Guillaume de l'Isle (1675−1726) was admitted into the French Académie Royale des Sciences when he was 27 years old and subsequently became the first person to receive the title Premier Géographe du Roi (principal geographer to the king). At the time de l'Isle was engaged in cartographic research, the prestige of a cartographer and the authority of his maps were gauged by the veracity of the cartographer's sources, i.e., the explorers and travelers who reported details of their travels to geographers and cartographers in Europe. Many of de l'Isle's maps were reissued by the publishing house of Cornelis Mortier and Johannes Coven in Amsterdam in their Atlas Nouveau, which was published in multiple editions, the earliest of which dates to 1730.

( See Koeman I p45). Jacques-Nicolas Bellin (1703-1772) was one of the most important and prolific French cartographers of the mid-eighteenth century, in the service of the French Hydrographical Office. He was appointed the first Ingenieur Hydrographe de la Marine, and also Official Hydrographer to the French King. Bellin was responsible for an enormous output of charts and maps. In a large folio format, he issued a volume of sea-charts of France, the Neptune François, and several sea-atlases of the World, including the Atlas Maritime and the Hydrographie Française. These large charts were amongst the best of the period and continued being reissued throughout the second half of the eighteenth century. In smaller format, he issued the Petit Atlas Maritime (1764),which contained 580 detailed charts, as well as maps to illustrate l'Abbe Prevost's Histoire Generale des Voyages (1746-1757). Bellin also produced a substantial number of important separately issued maps, particularly reflecting continuing discoveries and political events in the Americas.

He produced architectural views of places around the world intended as vues d?optiques, which were published in various places during the last half of the 18th century, including Paris, Augsburg and London. He was also known for his portraits.Probst came from an extended family of printers, whose businesses can all be traced back to the publishing firm of Jeremias Wolff (1663-1724). After Wolff's death his firm was continued as ?Wolff?s Heirs? by his son-in-law Johann Balthasar Probst (1689-1750). After Probst?s death in 1750, his descendants divided the business and published under their own imprints: Johann Friedrich Probst (1721-1781), Georg Balthasar Probst (1732-1801) and Johann Michael Probst. Another part of the Wolff-Probst firm was acquired by the Augsburg publisher Johann Georg Hertel (1700-1775), whose son Georg Leopold Hertel had married a sister of the Probsts. In the next generation, Georg Mathäus Probst (d. 1788), son of Georg Balthasar Probst, also became an engraver of portraits and views.

Aunque ya en 1760 Griselini hizo evidente que Sarpi no era el autor(1), la atribución ha venido persistiendo, tanto porque el nombre de Sarpi se mantuvo en las portadas de las distintas ediciones (haciendo que, por ejemplo, Graesse y, más recientemente, Conlon, mantuviesen la atribución), como porque el texto fue incluido en diferentes ediciones de obras completas de Sarpi. También ha ayudado el que, una vez sabido que no era de Sarpi, el texto fue dejado de lado, desechado del interés erudito como si resultar no ser obra de Sarpi fuese suficiente para borrar el interés de su contenido. La obra, de autor desconocido, había circulado por Italia en el s. XVII en manuscritos con variantes de redacción, pero cuyo el título se mantenía como de 'Consolazione della mente nella tranquilita de coscienza'(2). Su contenido no podía ser más polémico ya que, en la primera parte, se debate si el Papa y la Iglesia tienen capacidad de excomulgar, en qué casos y si la excomunón puede recurrirse. Si tiene más autoridad el Papa o el Concilio. Si un príncipe o una república libre pueden ser destituidos de sus estados mediante excomunión; si la excomunión es compatible con la libertad eclesiástica y si esta libertad es solo de la Iglesia o se extiende a sus pastores. Si un príncipe puede exigirle diezmos al clero, si tiene derecho de por sí a juzgar a eclesiasticos criminales y, por fin, si existe la infalibilidad papal. En todo el debate son múltiples las ocasiones en que se trae a colación el Concilio de Trento. Unas veces para criticar sus decretos, no pocas para criticar al Papa por ser el primero en no acatarlos. La segunda parte, en cambio, se destina a la aplicación práctica de la teoría desarrollada en la primera para rebatir y negar cualquier capacidad del Papa de influir o de decidir sobre la República de Venecia, desde su pretensión de hacer prevalecer la protección pontificia sobre miembros del clero que cometiesen delitos, hasta la de controlar el tráns [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
