         ou histoire abrégée des revolutions fréquentes de la Grande-Bretagne; par un esprit desintéressé.

      A Dublin [i.e. the Netherlands]: chez Jaques Pepiat. 1723. - 12mo., pp. [10], 216, 215-401, possibly wanting a half-title or an initial blank; a very good copy in contemporary Dutch or French sheep, spine gilt in compartments.First and only edition of this curious children's history of England in French, up to the death of Queen Anne in 1714.Despite the claim on the title-page that the author is 'un esprit désintéressé', the 'Avertissement' introduces the reader to the English as 'ce peuple inconstant et leger', comparing them, ironically (given the traditional English nickname for the French), to 'grenouilles imprudents'. On the other hand, the English, implausibly enough 'sont Presque tous beaux, ont les yeux bleus, le teint blanc, les cheveux blonds, & la taille belle', and the air is so healthy we live 'en parfaite sauté jusqu'à cent dix ans, & meme jusqu'à 150'. The rest of the text – which is more even handed in tone – is set out as a series of questions and answers, proceeding chronologically by monarch from Egbert (801-838) to Queen Anne. We are introduced to the virtues and the foibles of famous figures from English history: Charles II, for example, is diagnosed as possessing 'trop de passion pour les Dames'.Though the rest of the work is anonymous, the author of the last chapter is identified as the lexicographer and journalist Abel Boyer. This probably means that the material was cribbed from his History of the Life and Reign of Queen Anne (1722), rather than being an original commission. Boyer, however, would have been more than capable of producing a chapter in French: his Compleat French Master for Ladies and Gentlemen (1694) was one of the most popular guides to the French language of its time.The Dublin imprint is obviously false (though there was a Jeremiah Pepyat working there at this time). The book was presumably printed in the Netherlands.ESTC records only one copy in North America, at UCLA. Language: French [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         C. 1777 - 20 page Autograph Mss Sermon by Rev. Samuel Mather - Son of Richard M.

      - This sermon is on the union between Jesus Christ and the saints, preached in Boston. 10 leaves, 20 manuscript pages. Approximately 6000 words in Samuel Mather's hand. Measures at 6.25" x 7.75." Provenance from the collection of the late Richard Durnin, professor of American History, Mather family expert and avid collector. !Reverend Doctor Samuel Mather visited Europe when a young man, but we have no knowledge of his travels in that continent. He probably visited his uncle, the Reverend Samuel Mather, who was a preacher in Witney, in Oxfordshire, England. At the age of thirteen he entered Harvard College; graduated 1723, at age 17. He probably studied theology under the direction of his father, Reverend Doctor Cotton Mather, and it is said he soon obtained a good reputation. In 1732 he was chosen colleague with Reverend Mr. Gee of the Second Church in Boston (North Church), in which his father was minister.

A follower of Johannes Cocceius,Vitringa was a supporter of prophetic theology. He was educated at the universities of Franeker and Leiden, and became professor of Oriental languages at the former in 1681. When locating prophetic outcomes, he would associate events to the near rather than the far-off future, placing a distinct focus on the period of the Maccabees (2nd Century BC). Like Joseph Mede (1586-1638), Vitringa believed wholeheartedly that the Millennium was yet to come, but did not expect any immediate changes. He relegated the end of the time to a remote future and strongly emphasized the concept of New Jerusalem (From Wikipedia).

         Dell'istoria civile del Regno di Napoli libri XL scritti da Pietro Giannone giureconsulto, ed avvocato napoletano. Tomo 1-4.

      Per lo stampatore Niccolò Naso, In Napoli. 4 v. ([24], 534, [2] p.; [8], 575, [1] p.; [8], 566, [2] p.; [8], 502, [42] p.), 4º(26 cm), pergamena coeva con titoli manoscritti al dorso. Buono, ordinari segni d'uso e del tempo, qualche fioritura e qualche segnatura brunita leggera, qualche leggerissima brunitura ad alcune segnature, timbretto araldico privato ai frontespizi con timbrino poco sopra d'epoca "Duplicato 1890", mancanza di alcuni cm alla parte alta del dorso del primo volume reintegrata d'epoca. Fregio xil sui front. stampati in rosso e nero. Prima assai rara edizione (anche perché l'opera venne da subito inserita nell'Indice dei Libri Proibiti) di questa celeberrima opera del grande filosofo illuminista, storico e giurista nato a Ischitella (Foggia) nel 1676 e morto a Torino nel 1748, Pietro Giannone. "Dell'Istoria Civile" pubblicata nel 1723 in quattro volumi, ebbe da subito enorme fortuna anche all'estero (Inghilterra, Francia e Germania), dove fu tradotta e studiata, mentre la Chiesa ne avversò le tesi ponendola nell'Indice dei libri proibiti e comminando al filosofo una scomunica, in seguito alla quale Giannone riparò all'estero. I temi trattati nell'opera, sviluppati intorno a precisi riferimenti giuridici, forniscono una lucida descrizione della situazione morale del Regno di Napoli, attribuendo le cause della situazione all'influenza negativa della Curia romana. Il Giannone auspicava con quest'opera, tra l'altro, "il rischiaramento delle nostre leggi patrie e dei nostri propri istituti e costumi". Le sue opere furono tra le più plagiate del settecento come disse anche lo stesso Manzoni nel capitolo settimo della "Storia della Colonna Infame". Giannone, discendente da una famiglia di avvocati (anche se il padre era uno speziale), a diciotto anni lasciò il paese natale Ischitella, nei pressi di Foggia, per intraprendere gli studi di giurisprudenza a Napoli. Nella città partenopea conseguì la laurea entrando ben presto in contatto con filosofi vicini a Giambattista Vico e apprezzando le idee di Cartesio e Nicolas Malebranche. Fu praticante presso Gaetano Argento, che disponeva di una vasta biblioteca, la frequentazione della quale fu essenziale per la sua formazione. I suoi interessi non si limitarono soltanto al diritto ed alla filosofia, appassionandosi anche agli studi storici e dedicandosi per ben vent'anni alla stesura della sua opera storica più conosciuta Dell'istoria civile del regno di Napoli, che gli causò tuttavia numerosi problemi con la Chiesa per il suo contenuto. Costretto a riparare a Vienna presso la corte asburgica, ottenne protezione e sovvenzioni dall'imperatore Carlo VI, il che gli permise di proseguire indisturbato i suoi studi filosofici e storici. Il suo tentativo di rientrare in patria fu ostacolato dalla Chiesa, nonostante i buoni uffici dell'arcivescovo di Napoli recatosi a Vienna per convincerlo a tornare a Napoli, e fu costretto a trasferirsi a Venezia dove, fu molto apprezzato dall'ambiente culturale della città, rifiutò sia la cattedra alla facoltà di giurisprudenza dell'Università di Padova, sia un posto di consulente giuridico presso la Serenissima. Nel 1735 il governo della Repubblica lo espulse, dopo averlo sottoposto a stretti controlli spionistici, per questioni inerenti alle sue idee sul diritto marittimo e nonostante la sua autodifesa con il trattato Lettera intorno al dominio del Mare Adriatico. Dopo aver vagato per l'Italia (fu a Ferrara, Modena, Milano e Torino), giunse a Ginevra, patria del calvinismo, dove compose un altro lavoro dal forte sapore anticlericale Il Triregno. Del regno terreno, Del regno celeste, Del regno papale (pubblicato postumo solo nel 1895) che gli costò nuovamente la persecuzione delle alte sfere ecclesiastiche culminate con la sua cattura (1º aprile 1736, giorno di Pasqua) in un villaggio della Savoia. Rimasto nelle prigioni sabaude per molti anni (l'ultima delle quali fu la fortezza-carcere di Torino dove rimase prigioniero per ben dodici anni), fu costretto a firmare un atto di abiura (1738) che non gli valse tuttavia la libertà. Infatti, dal dicembre 1738 fu tenuto prigioniero nella fortezza di Ceva, dove scrisse alcuni dei suoi componimenti più famosi; vi rimase fino al 1744 per essere poi trasferito. Morì nella prigione del mastio della Cittadella di Torino il 17 marzo 1748, all'età di 72 anni.

      Artist: Vaugondy de Didier/ Gilles Robert ( - 1786) Paris; issued in: Paris; date: ca 1737 1723 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Printed on 2 sheets joined together,centerfolf restored; - size (in cm): 50,5 x 120,5; - description: Map shows the total Roman Empire in Europe ( eastern and western part) with parts of Asia and Africa and the Middle East. With two inset maps: the old world ( Asia, Afica and Europe) and Greece. Decorative title cartouche and detailed mountains and rivers. Ancient Rome was originally an Italic settlement dating from the 8th century BC that grew into the city of Rome and which subsequently gave its name to the empire over which it ruled and to the widespread civilisation the empire developed. The Roman empire expanded to become one of the largest empires in the ancient world. After defeating the Macedonian and Seleucid Empires in the 2nd century BC, the Romans became the dominant people of the Mediterranean Sea.;The Roman Empire was one of the largest in history, with contiguous territories throughout Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East. In reality, Roman expansion was mostly accomplished under the Republic, though parts of northern Europe were conquered in the 1st century AD, when Roman control in Europe, Africa and Asia was strengthened. During the reign of Augustus, a ;global map of the known world; was displayed for the first time in public at Rome, coinciding with the composition of the most comprehensive work on political geography that survives from antiquity, the Geography of the Pontic Greek writer Strabo. When Augustus died, the commemorative account of his achievements (Res Gestae) prominently featured the geographical cataloguing of peoples and places within the Empire. Geography, the census, and the meticulous keeping of written records were central concerns of Roman Imperial administration.; -vita of the artist: Didier Robert de Vaugondy (1723 -1786) also known as Le Sieur or Monsieur Robert, and his son, were leading cartographers in France during the 18th century. In 1757, Gilles and Didier Robert De Vaugondy published The Atlas Universel, one of the most important atlases of the 18th century. To produce the atlas, the Vaugondys integrated older sources with more modern surveyed maps. They verified and corrected the latitude and longitude of many regional maps in the atlas with astronomical observations. The older material was revised with the addition of many new place names. In 1760, Didier Robert de Vaugondy was appointed geographer to Louis XV.Gilles and Didier Robert De Vaugondy produced their maps and terrestrial globes working together as father and son. Globes of a variety of sizes were made by gluing copperplate-printed gores on a plaster-finished papier-mache core, a complicated and expensive manufacturing process, employing several specialists. In some cases it is uncertain whether Gilles or Didier made a given map. Gilles often signed maps as M.Robert, while Didier commonly signed his maps as "Robert de Vaugondy", or added "fils" or "filio" after his name.The Robert de Vaugondys were descended from the Nicolas Sanson family through Sanson's grandson, Pierre Moulard-Sanson. From him, they inherited much of Sanson's cartographic material, which they combined with maps and plates acquired after Hubert Jaillot's death in 1712 to form the basis the Atlas Universel.

      Artist: Vaugondyde Robert ( - 1786) Paris; issued in: Paris; date: ca 1702 1723 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Mounted, missing part on lower center replaced, tear on left lower side restored, fold; - size (in cm): 47,5 x 71; - description: Decorative map shows the world in two hemispheres, california as an island an 2 decorative cartouches. The Island of California refers to a long-held Spanish misconception, dating from the 16th century, that California was not part of mainland North America but rather a large island separated from the continent by a strait now known as the Gulf of California.One of the most famous cartographic errors in history, it was propagated on many maps during the 17th and 18th centuries, despite contradictory evidence from various explorers. The legend was initially infused with the idea that California was a terrestrial paradise, like the Garden of Eden or Atlantis. Australia not completely depicted as the complete coast was not charted at that time.; -vita of the artist: Didier Robert de Vaugondy (1723 -1786) also known as Le Sieur or Monsieur Robert, and his son, were leading cartographers in France during the 18th century.

         Ceremonies et Coutumes Religieuses de tous les Peuples du Monde, représentées par des figures dessinées de la main de Bernard Picart: avec une explication historique, & quelques dissertations curieuses.

      Amsterdam: J. F. Bernard, 1723—39 - 7 volumes, folio (400 x 240 mm). Contemporary calf professionally refurbished, decorative gilt spines (floriate tools, interlocking drawer-handle motifs, reticulated bands in numbering compartments), tawny-coloured labels, red mottled edges. Early ownership inscription of "C. L. Geller" at foot of front free endpaper in each volume; neat early 19th-century book label of C. H. Soltau (the Soltau family played an important part in the early days of the Plymouth Brethren); ownership inscription of Henry and Jane Birkbeck (dated April 1820), the Birkbecks were a Norfolk banking family; early note of purchase price on front free endpaper of volume I: "£25 - 7. vols. III 1797". Occasional dust-marking, some gatherings toned. An excellent set. 223 engraved plates by Picart (31 double-page or folding), engraved title vignettes and headpieces, woodcut decorations; title pages printed in red and black. Mixed early editions of one of the great books of the 18th century, a work that "marked a major turning point in European attitudes toward religious belief" (Hunt, Jacob & Mijnhardt, The Book that Changed Europe: Picart & Bernard's Religious Ceremonies of the World, Harvard UP 2010, p. 1). Originally published between 1723 and 1737, the monumental Ceremonies and Religious Customs of the Various Nations was the result of a collaboration between Europe's leading engraver, Bernard Picart, and the publisher and author Jean Frederic Bernard. Both men were Protestant refugees driven by the Counter-Reformation from France to Amsterdam, where, in a fertile milieu of radicals and free-thinkers, they produced one of the world's greatest religious books. "The original seven volumes were supplemented by two others that are very different in character and not included here [in the Getty Research Library's set]" (ibid.). Volume VII concludes with an extensive index. Born in France in 1680, Bernard moved to Amsterdam with his family in 1686. He became a full member of the bookseller's guild in 1711 and though he "possessed a good business acumen, books for him were more than just a business. He became a highly selective publisher with a small catalogue dominated by free-spirited theological inquiry and travel literature" (ibid. p. 94). The trials his family faced in France deeply affected the young man, who developed "a lifelong doubt about the value of established religion, and a quest for religion's underlying essence" (ibid. p. 95). He also believed that it was his role as publisher to provide readers with "the information necessary to find their way out of the labyrinth of delusions and begin to decide religious matters for themselves" (ibid. p. 106). After a decade in publishing, Bernard announced in 1720 a grand plan for a religious encyclopaedia. Eventually comprising seven volumes and more than 200 engraved plates, The Religious Ceremonies was a massive undertaking and the culmination of his life-long interest in religion. By presenting the world's religions as equally deserving of intellectual understanding, he ultimately made the case that there existed among all peoples a pure "natural religion" distinct from the elaborate and sometimes immoral practices imposed by priests. To accomplish this he compiled the most up-to-date and accurate sources and added his own commentary. While guiding the reader with careful juxtapositions he also maintained an academic distance, allowing his sources to speak for themselves and the reader to make up his own mind. Just as influential as the text, Picart's engravings were small masterpieces, drawn from life wherever possible and otherwise taken respectfully from the most authentic sources. As well as making his images beautiful and accurate, the engraver "constantly strove to make foreign deities, practices or processions more palatable to European viewers He achieved this effect in various ways, but putting unfamiliar deities on classical pedestals, by excluding the scenes of greatest violence depicted by

         'Whereas it is found by experience that ye number and consequently the question of the poore within the easterne parte of the county of Kent is already exceeding great and will, if not remedied beome intolerable to the great range of inhabitants as well as distresse of the poor themselves for want of workhouses to sett their poor to work and a sufficient authority to compel them thereunto for remedy whereof.'

      [1723?] This appears to be a manuscript draft proposal, written on 7 folio sheets, to be presented to Parliament, for the establishment of workhouses, workhouse hospitals, and houses of correction, the appointment of Justices of the Peace and overseers of the poor, and details for the regulation, funding, and administration of these proposals. There are a number of corrections and deletions, indicating a work in progress rather than a fair copy. Each sheet is neatly folded, the final one a little dusted on the reverse, with slight wear to folds, and a neat marginal repair.The sixteenth century increase in poverty led to a system of parish based poor relief evolving from Acts of 1597 and 1601 and lasting, with modification, until 1834. The Acts created a poor rate and overseers to care for the 'settled' impotent poor of every parish. The able-bodied were to be set to work. In their homes the 'deserving' poor received 'outrelief' in cash, food, clothing, fuel, rent and medical aid. Since poverty was created by unemployment, parishes were empowered to 'set the poor on work' in 'Abiding and Working Houses'. Although undated, this manuscript was most likely drafted just after Knatchbull's Act of 1722 which permitted parishes or groups of parishes to build or rent workhouses to 'receive the labour' of their inmates. Refusal to enter meant ineligibility for relief. By 1776 the basic pattern of a Kent workhouse system had emerged. Some 132 workhouses had accommodation, sometimes shared, for 5,819 inmates. Only 29 of 391 parishes did not use them since they were thought cheaper than 'outrelief'. While some large urban workhouses held 100-350 paupers, half held under 30 and were little more than cottages. PLEASE NOTE: For customers within the UK and the EU, this item is subject to VAT.

Bookblock of all volumes in good condition. Except for the traces of use a good copy. The Scottish economist Adam Smith (1723-1790) was the most influential thinker in the history of capitalist economics. The publication of his book ‘An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations' in 1776 established him as the single most influential figure in the development of modern economic theory. He describes the workings of a market 4, 54, 228, , the division of labor in production, the nature of wealth in relation to money, the inability of governments to manage economies, and the difference between productive and nonproductive labor. Smith's standardwork was reprinted many times in the eightteenth and nineteenth centuries and also in more recent times his work is being published (even a full text electronic edition is available on the internet). The present set is a rare, early edition, printed in London in 1793, only a few years after Smith's death. B0062. 4, 54, 228, ; Philosophy.

         The Fatal Legacy; A Tragedy. As it is Acted at the Theatre-Royal in Lincolns-Inn Fields

      London: Printed for E. Symon, J. Roberts and A. Dodd, 1723 - 8vo, disbound, 79 pages. Half-title present. A translation and adaptation of Racine's La ThÈbaide. The anonymous dedication states "This tragedy was writ by a young lady, and entrusted to my management . . . The four first acts are taken chiefly from Racine; but the last is (excepting a few lines) entirely new." The Fatal Legacy had a short run at Lincolns-Inn Fields, with Anthony and Anna Maria Seymour Boheme in starring roles. It is apparently the only publication by Jane Robe, about whom little else is recorded. The attribution to Robe comes from Allardyce Nicoll's A History of English Drama. First and final leaves a little dust-soiled; very good copy. [Attributes: First Edition]

      Artist: Vaugondy de Didier/ Gilles Robert (-1786) Paris; issued in: Paris; date: ca 1750 1723 - - technic: Copper print; colorit: colored; condition: Outer margin perfectly restored tears; size (in cm): 48 x 54; description: Map shows total Japan; - vita of the artist: Didier Robert de Vaugondy (1723 -1786) also known as Le Sieur or Monsieur Robert, and his son, were leading cartographers in France during the 18th century. In 1757, Gilles and Didier Robert De Vaugondy published The Atlas Universel, one of the most important atlases of the 18th century. To produce the atlas, the Vaugondys integrated older sources with more modern surveyed maps. They verified and corrected the latitude and longitude of many regional maps in the atlas with astronomical observations. The older material was revised with the addition of many new place names. In 1760, Didier Robert de Vaugondy was appointed geographer to Louis XV.Gilles and Didier Robert De Vaugondy produced their maps and terrestrial globes working together as father and son. Globes of a variety of sizes were made by gluing copperplate-printed gores on a plaster-finished papier-mache core, a complicated and expensive manufacturing process, employing several specialists. In some cases it is uncertain whether Gilles or Didier made a given map. Gilles often signed maps as M.Robert, while Didier commonly signed his maps as "Robert de Vaugondy", or added "fils" or "filio" after his name.The Robert de Vaugondys were descended from the Nicolas Sanson family through Sansons grandson, Pierre Moulard-Sanson. From him, they inherited much of Sansons cartographic material, which they combined with maps and plates acquired after Hubert Jaillots death in 1712 to form the basis the Atlas Universel.

        Obras de albeytería... Aora nuevamente añadido la sanidad del cavallo y explicación de sus enfemedades

      Early edition, one of the most significant treatises on albeyteria made in Spain in the 17th century, demonstrated by the several editions it went through; Arredondo´s work on the veterinary on horses was well accepted in his time and into the next century. On pp.147 we find the full-page woodcut illustrating a horse surrounded by the zodiac signs and their influence on the animal. The work is divided in three parts, dealing with pathology, therapeutics, antidotes and pharmacology, anatomy (some of it after Ruini). "Sin embargo que esta obra presenta sus extravios, sobre todo en la anatomia, no se puede negar que la Veterinaria le debe mucho a Arredondo, pues trato varios puntos con madurez y reflexion... El alfabeto medicinal de simples es muy digno de leerse" (Catalogo de algunos Autores Españoles que han escrito de Veterinaria, pp.15, 1780). "Arredondo se propuso recopilar los autores españoles que escribieron de veterinaria: cita las obras de los que mas se han distinguido en ello, y las personas ilustres que mas contribuian en su epoca a honrar esta clase de conocimientos" (Braulio Antón Ramírez, Diccionario de bibliografía agronómica, pp.302). The albeyteria was the science dedicated to the maintenance, treating and curing of animals, especially equine; it´s origins in the Spanish language are the "Llibre de la menescalia" or Libro de Albeyteria by Diaz, and shortly after, the one by Reyna. It is an early attempt of veterinary science, although plagued with folk knowledge and advice, appealing in instances to sciences as astrology, instead of scientific method. A rare edition, we found copies at: Danish Union Catalogue, Universitat de Valencia, Biblioteca Nacional de España, Biblioteca Universitaria de Granada, Universidad Complutense, Texas A&M. Palau, 17372.
