         Cérémonies et Coutumes Religieuses de Tous les Peuples du Monde Représentées par des Figures dessinés de la main de Bernard Picard : Avec une Explication Historique, & quelques Dissertations curieuses. Tome Premier, Qui contient les Cérémonies des Juifs & des Chrétiens Catholiques; Qui contient la suite des Cérémonies Religieuses en usage chez les Catholiques. 2-vols bound in one (Complete)

      Amsterdam: J. F. Bernard, 1723. First edition. Hardcover. g to vg. Folio (15 1/2 x 10 1/4"). [12], xlii, [8], 153, [1], 206, [2]pp (Vol. 1); [4], 197, [1], 104pp (Vol. 2). Contemporary full calf, with gold lettering and tooling to spine. Raised bands. All paper edges red. Title pages in red and black lettering. Title vignettes by Bernard Picard. Decorative head-, tailpieces and initials. Scarce first edition of these first two volumes (bound in one) of "Cérémonies et Coutumes Religieuses de Tous les Peuples du Monde" (1723-1743), a nine-volume work published by Jean Frederic Bernard, a French language bookseller in Amsterdam, and lavishly illustrated by Bernard Picart, one of the most famous engravers of the time. As the title suggests, the series sought to "capture the ritual and ceremonial life of all the known religions of the world. Because Bernard chose to remain anonymous as author, the work has long been catalogued under the name of its engraver, Picart. "Picart," as many readers called it, helped create the study of comparative religion and had a long-lasting influence on the representations of the world's religions in the West." For more information, see UCLA's "The Origins of Comparative Religion: Bernard and Picard's Religious Ceremonies and Customs of All the Peoples of the World (1723-1743). Most of the first volume documents the rituals and ceremonial life of the Jews, while its last part deals with the Catholics. The second volume completes the rituals and ceremonial life of the Catholics, and concludes with a section on the Inquisition. These two volumes bound in one are complete of all their 62 striking full-page engravings (35 in vol. 1, and 27 in vol. 2), of which 4 are double-page and 3 are large folded. Some of the Jewish plates include the following: Plate #2: The dedication of the Synagogue of the Portuguese (Sephardic) Jews in Amsterdam Plate #6: Le Son du Cor au Premier Jour de l'An / Le Chipur, ou le Jour du Pardon tel qu'il se celêbre chez les Juifs Allemands (Sounding the Horn on New Years Day / The Chipur, or Day of Forgiveness Observed by the Jews in Germany): A two-image plate depicting blowing the shofar on Rosh Hashanah at the Portuguese Synagogue in Amsterdam, above, and Yom Kippur at the Ashkenazi Obbene Shul in Amsterdam, below. Plate #7: L'Examen du Levain &c. / Le Repas de Paques chez les Juifs Portugais (The Search for the Leavened Bread, &c. a Domestic Ceremony in the Jewish Religion): A two-image plate depicting the Passover custom of the mother placing bits of unleavened bread for the father and children to discover and dispose of, above, and a Passover seder of Portuguese Jews in Amsterdam, below. Plate #8: Procession des Palmes chez les Juifs Portugais / Repas des Juifs pendant la Fête des Tentes (The Procession of Palmes of the Portuguese Jews / Jewish entertainment during the Feast of Tabernacles): A two-image plate depicting Sukkot at the Portuguese Synagogue in Amsterdam, above, and Portuguese Jews in a sukkah during Sukkot, below.

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

      1723 - One of the most important works on horse veterinary published in Spain. 1723. Madrid. Francisco del Hierro. Folio (276 x 200 mm). 6 ff., 380 pp. Recent calf antique, boards tooled in blind, spine lettered in gilt. Paper almost uniformly browned, as expected due to the poor paper used for the edition, else good. 2,000 $ 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. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

De L isle was admitted into the French Académie Royale des Sciences, an institution financed by the French state. After that date, he signed his maps with the title of ?Géographe de l?Académie? Five years later, he moved to the Quai de l?Horloge in Paris, a true publishing hub where his business prospered. De L isle?s ascension through the ranks culminated in 1718 when he received the title of Premier Géographe du Roi. His new office consisted in teaching geography to the Dauphin, King Louis XIV?s son, a task for which he received a salary. De L sle?s reputation as a man of science probably helped .This supports the claim of the historian Mary Sponberg Pedley, who says ?once authority was established, a geographer?s name might retain enough value to support two or three generations of mapmakers? In De L isle?s case, it could be said that his accomplishments surpassed his father?s. Up to that point, he had drawn maps not only of European countries, such as Italy, Spain, Germany, Great Britain, Poland, and regions such as the Duchy of Burgundy, but he had also contributed to the empire?s claims to recently explored continents of Africa and the Americas.Like many cartographers of these days, De L isle did not travel with the explorers and elaborated the maps mostly in his office. The quality of his maps depended on a solid network that would provide him first-hand information. Given the family?s reputation and his own, De L isle had access to fairly recent accounts of travellers who were coming back from the New World, which gave him an advantage over his competitors. Being a member of the Académie, he was also aware of recent discoveries, especially in astronomy and measurement. When he could not confirm the accuracy of his source, he would indicate it clearly on his maps. For instance, his Carte de la Louisiane shows a river that the baron of Lahontan claimed he discovered, but no one else could validate it, so Delisle warned the viewer that its actual existence was in doubt. De L isle 's search for exactitude and intellectual honesty entangled him in a legal dispute in 1700 with Jean-Baptiste Nolin, a fellow cartographer. Noticing Nolin had used details that were considered original from his Map of the World, De L isle dragged Nolin in court to prove his plagiarism. In the end, Delisle managed to convince the jury of scientists that Nolin only knew the old methods of cartography and therefore that he had stolen the information from his manuscript. Nolin's maps were confiscated and he was forced to pay the court costs.The scientificity of the work produced by the De L isle family contrasted with the workshop of Sanson. While Sanson knowingly published outdated facts and mistakes, De L isle strived to present up-to-date knowledge. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Steell, an Irish mathematician, dedicated his book to the Provost, Fellows, and Scholars of the College of Dublin. "Steell made no apologies for printing theorems and proofs attributed to other mathematicians since these theorems formed the basis of much of his own original work which followed." (F. Howard, Edward Worth Library, Dublin). This book is very rare. We can only trace the Macclesfield copy, sold at Sothebys in 2005. - Visit our website for additional images and information.

      Bruxelles, Jean Leonard 1723 - Beschreibung: Schweinsledereinband der Zeit mit reichgeprägter Rückenvergoldung und 5 Bändern. Format/ Einband: 16 x 10,5 cm, dreiseitigem Rotschnitt, Frontispiz mit gestochenem Titelkupfer, 288 Seiten und 11 (von 15) eingebundenen Tafelkupfern nach Seiten 40, 52, 54, (102 fehlt), 106, 110, 130, (142 fehlt), (182 fehlt), 186, 224, 230, (234 fehlt), 264, 280. Papier nahezu ohne Flecken. Sehr gut erhaltenes Exemplar. Bemerkungen: Band 1 von 2. Wahrscheinlich die 4. Auflage einer erstmals 1705 unter diesem Titel erschienenen Schrift; wohl eine Umarbeitung des ebenfalls von Vallemont redigierten Reiseberichtes „Curiositez de la natur apportées dans deux voyages des Indes occidentales et orientales faits par le sieur Biron“ von 1703. Enthält außer botanischen und gartenkundlichen Beobachtungen, zahlreiche magisch-alchemistische Informationen, so über Sympathie und Antipathie der Pflanzen, metallische und künstliche Vegetation, pflanzliche Palingenesie etc. mit entsprechenden interessanten Kupfertafeln. Das Werk erhielt in Frankreich wie im europäischen Ausland eine Vielzahl von Auflagen; bekannt sind eine 2. Auflage von 1710, eine 3. von 1715, eine 4. von 1723 und eine weitere von 1753. In Deutschland erschien die erste Auflage 1708 bei Beßler und Aschenburg. Pierre Le Lorrain, bekannt als der Abbé de Vallemont (geboren am 10. September 1649), war in der exakten Naturbeobachtung sowohl als Physiker wie auch als Numismatiker in seiner Zeit berühmt; er veröffentlichte eine Reihe von Schriften, in denen er merkwürdige Beobachtungen aus der Natur, (Al)Chemie und dem Garten- und Landschaftsbau nachging, um den agrikulturellen Fortschritt seiner Zeit zu befeuern. Dem kirchlichen Stand angehörend kam er als Doktor der Theologie von Rouen aus nach Paris, wo er als Lehrer am Collège Cardinal Lemoine die Erziehung und Bildung des Marquis de Dangeau und des Sohnes von M. Poilart, einem damaligen Parlamentsmitglied, übernahm. Von dort aus folgte er seinen Schülern nach Versailles, wo er sich nach eigenen Angaben ca. 10 Jahre aufhielt. Bei seinen Naturkenntnissen spielte deshalb auch der Park von Versailles, insbesondere der „potager du Roi“, eine besondere Rolle; er gibt an, dass ein Großteil seiner Kenntnisse aus Gesprächen mit dem Gartenarchitekten des Königs gewonnen sind, „Monsieur de la Quintinie, le plus experimenté jardinier, qui ait jamais été “ (Aus der Vorrede) In seiner Wohnung bot er der Öffentlichkeit eine Art Kuriositätenkabinett seiner Zeit mit erstaunlichen Maschinen und Gegenständen der Naturgeschichte und besonderen numismatischen Objekten zur Besichtigung an. Am Ende seines Lebens zog er sich nach Pont-Audemer zurück, wo er am 30. Dezember 1721 starb. Vgl.

         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.

Binding in overall fair to good-, interior in good to very good condition. About the author: Campegius Vitringa (1659-1722) was a Dutch Protestant theologian and Hebraist. 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.

        Partie Occidentale de la Carte des Anciennes Monarchies. / Partie Orientale de la Carte des Anciennes Monarchies.

      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.
