Early ink manuscript note of translator's name in margin of first page. Old ink manuscript foliation in upper outer corners of first three leaves recto (308-310; no foliation on final leaf).

After becoming the second sultan in the Alaouite dynasty in 1672, he fought a series of battles to persuade the Ottoman Turks to respect Moroccan independence and captured Tangier and other important seaports from the Spanish and English, earning himself the nickname "The Warrior King."The prologue gives details of Muley Ismaïl's ancestry and his actions, which included the murder of thousands, heavy taxes, the acquisition of hundreds of concubines and the siring of hundreds of children, and his transfer of the capital to Meknes, where he was building a huge new city and royal complex. The testament (ff. 2v-4v) includes provisions for his slaves, concubines, children, Christian slaves, the Franciscans at Meknes, counterfeiters, thieves, vagabonds, prostitutes, and Jews. At the end is a glossary of Arabic terms such as alcaçova, bamarkan, janezes, and xarife.*** Innocêncio IV, 347: giving the date as 1727. Gonçalves Rodrigues, A Tradução em Portugal 557.

Dom Vincent Thuillier (1685-1736), ... produced a French translation of the whole of Polybius at the request of an eager strategist, the Chevalier de Folard, who had been inspired with an interest in the art of war by reading the Commentaries of Caesar. The Chevalier's commentary on Polybius, which accompanied the Benedictine monk's translation, included so many personal reflections on his military contemporaries, that the first volume alone was allowed to be published in France (1727), while the remainder saw the light in Holland." - John E. Sandys, A History of Classical Scholarship, II, p. 389. "The substance of Polybius' work is based on historical information and conveys his role as a historian. His Histories starts in 264 BC and finishes in 146 BC. He mainly discusses the years in which ancient Rome rose to superpower status from 220 BC to 167 BC, describing Rome's efforts in subduing its arch-enemy, Carthage, and thereby becoming the dominant Mediterranean force. Books I through V of The Histories are the introduction for the years during his lifetime, describing the politics in each powerful nation, including ancient Greece and Egypt. In Book VI, Polybius describes the way of the Romans; he discusses the powers of the different parts of the republic, as well as the rights of the plebeian. He describes the First and Second Punic Wars. Polybius concludes the Romans are the pre-eminent power because they maintain customs and traditions which promote a deep desire for noble acts, a love of virtue, piety towards parents and elders, and a fear of the gods. He also chronicled are the conflicts between Hannibal [see map v. IV, p. 90] and Publius Cornelius Scipio Africanus such as the Battle of Ticinus, the Battle of the Trebia, the Siege of Saguntum, the Battle of Lilybaeum, and the Battle of Rhone Crossing. In Book XII, Polybius discusses the worth of Timaeus' account of the same period of history. He asserts Timaeus' point of view is inaccurate, invalid, and biased in favor of Rome. Therefore, Polybius's Histories is also useful in analyzing the different Hellenistic versions of history and of use as a credible illustration of actual events during the Hellenistic period." - Wikip.

"Observationum Sacrarum" is an impressive collection of material on "philological, exegetical, and theological topics which grew over the decades into an impressive six-volume set (the seven and last volume was published posthumously). The collection consists largely of material prepared in connection with Vitringa's public disputations" (For more information, see: Charles K. Telfer's "Wrestling with Isaiah: The Exegetical Methodology of Campegius Vitringa" (Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht, 2016), Page 29). This work is complete with its engraved Kabbalistic plate facing page 142 in first volume. Bindings somewhat darkened and age-toned. Ex-library sticker at tail of spines, and stamp on each fly leaf and main titles. Text in Latin, with some Hebrew and Greek. Bindings in overall good- to good, interior in 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).

Nouvelle édition. [Première-Quatrième partie]. Suivi de : NOUVELLES LETTRES DE MESSIRE ROGER DE RABUTIN, COMTE DE BUSSY, Lieutenant Général des Armées du Roi, et Mestre de Camp Général de la Cavalerie française et étrangère. Avec les réponses. Sur l'imprimé A Paris, Chez Florentin Delaulne, 172 7 volumes in-12 (16 x 9,5 cm) de (4)-374-(2), (4)-295, (6)-550, (8)-491-(4), (10)-448, (8)-386 et (6)-384 pages. Nous pouvons fournir la collation détaillée sur demande. Reliure pleine basane fauve de l'époque, dos à nerfs richement ornés, pièces de titre et tomaison de maroquin rouge, tranches rouges. Coiffes et coins avec usures et manques aux extrémités, intérieur collationné complet. Papier parfois bruni sans gravité. Quelques rousseurs. Pourtour de quelques pages de titre bruni. Le titre au dos a été mal doré "RABATIN" au lieu de "RABUTIN". RARISSIME CONTREFAÇON DE L'EDITION DE 1720-1727 PARUE CHEZ LA VEUVE DELAULNE. Détail des volumes : Tome I : Outre un Avertissement, ce volume contient les lettres I à CXLIV. Soit 144 lettres. Tome II : Ce volume contient les lettres I à CXI. Soit 111 lettres. Tome III : Ce volume contient les lettres I à CCCXXXIII. Soit 333 lettres. Tome IV : Ce volume contient les lettres I à CCCLXXI. Soit 371 lettres. Tome V : Outre un Avertissement, ce volume contient les lettres I à CCCXXV. Soit 325 lettres. Tome VI : Ce volume contient les lettres I à CCLXX. Soit 270 lettres. Tome VII : Ce volume contient les lettres I à CCXIX. Soit 219 lettres. Sur l'ensemble des 7 volumes ce sont donc 1773 lettres écrites par le comte de Bussy-Rabutin ou adressées à lui qui sont rassemblées dans cette édition (identique en tous points à celle de 1720-1727). Quelques remarques sur cette édition : A noter qu'on ne trouve de réclame qu'en fin de cahiers de 4 ou 8 feuillets, ce qui contrairement à la pratique dans les Pays-Bas (Amsterdam ou La Haye) où tous les feuillets comportent habituellement une réclame pour le feuillet suivant, indiquerait ici une impression française. La mention "sur l'imprimé" présente sur les titres indique de façon claire une contrefaçon de l'impression de Paris chez Florentin Delaulne. D'ailleurs en 1727 Florentin Delaulne est décédé et la véritable édition de Paris, 1727 porte l'adresse : Veuve Delaulne. L'ensemble des 7 volumes est parsemé d'ornements gravés (fleurons, bandeaux, culs-de-lampe), leur étude serait intéressante pour déterminer de quelle ville et de quel atelier typographique sortent ces volumes (Lyon ? Rouen ?). Une comparaison avec la véritable édition Delaulne de 1720 indique un texte identique avec de faibles différences dans la justification de quelques lignes. La pagination est identique. On trouve un très grand nombre de lettres dans cette riche correspondance de Bussy-Rabutin. Exilé sur ses terres de Bourgogne à Bussy pendant près de dix-sept années à cause de son libertinage et surtout à cause de son Histoire amoureuse des Gaules qui circula en manuscrit et imprimée pendant toute la seconde moitié du XVIIe siècle, pour la plus grande fureur de Louis XIV qui ne lui pardonna jamais d’avoir chansonné les amours du Roi, Bussy-Rabutin se livre ici dans son intimité. Mais ce qu’il y a de plus remarquable sans aucun doute dans cette correspondance, c’est qu’on y trouve aussi les réponses des nombreux correspondants du comte, fait rare dans l’édition des correspondances anciennes qui sont parvenues jusqu'à nous. On y retrouve notamment la plus célèbre de ses correspondantes, la marquise de Sévigné, Marie de Rabutin Chantal. On sait que c’est le fils de Roger de Rabutin qui édita en partie avec le Père Bouhours la correspondance de Bussy (1697-1709). C’est également le fils de Roger de Rabutin qui communiqua les manuscrits des premières lettres publiées de la marquise de [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The present 1726 edition noted for the inclusion here for the first time of the newly adopted modification to the Charter, King Georges "Explanatory Charter" (pp. 13-14), whereby the position of the Governor was further strengthened: he was given sole power to adjourn the House of Representatives, and the right to veto the House's choice of their Speaker.

Volume II title-page dated 1727 and with the edition statement that reads "The Second Edition, Corrected." Four parts in two octavo volumes (7 1/2 x 4 5/8 inches; 190 x 116 mm). viii, [4], [1]-148; [6], [149]-310; [2, publisher's ads], [6], 155, [1, blank]; [8], 199, [1, blank] pp. With engraved frontispiece, five engraved maps and engraved plate of symbols. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Gulliver in the second state, as is usual (the first state only seen in large paper copies). Portrait has the inscription "Captain Lemuel Gulliver of Redriff. Ætat. suæ LVIII." around the oval the tablet bearing a Latin inscription, printed on paper with vertical chain-lines. Containing numerous woodcut head- and tail-pieces and initials. Beautifully bound by Morrell, London for Thomas W. Best in full green-blue 19th-century morocco. Boards decoratively ruled in gilt with corner devices. Spines stamped and lettered in gilt. Board edges gilt, and gilt dentelles. All edges gilt. Marbled endpapers. Previous owner's bookplate on front pastedown of each volume. Outer hinges with some slight rubbing. Title-page of volume I with some minor darkening. Overall a beautiful set. Gulliver's Travels, to use the popular title, is one of the greatest satires in the English language--or any language, for that matter. It was an immediate success, which accounts in part for its bibliographical complexity, and has been hailed as a book that "would last as long as the language, because it described the vices of man in all nations" (D.N.B.). "Gulliver's Travels has given Swift an immortality beyond temporary fame...All those who had been fascinated by the realism and vivid detail of Defoe's Robinson Crusoe were captivated again, even though they knew that Gulliver must be fiction. The brilliance and thoroughness with which his logic and invention work out the picquancies of scale involved by the giant human among the Lilliputians, and then by a minikin Gulliver among the Brobdingnagians, ran away with the author's original intention. Gulliver's Travels has achieved the final apotheosis of a satirical fable, but it has also become a tale for children. For every edition designed for the reader with an eye to the historical background, twenty have appeared, abridged or adapted, for readers who care nothing for the satire and enjoy it as a first-class story" (Printing and the Mind of Man).

Engelbert Kaempfer (1651-1716), a German doctor with an urge to travel, joined the Swedish embassy to Persia under Louis Fabricius in 1683. Rather than return home to Europe he travelled throughout Persia and India (1684-89) and eventually made his way to Java where he signed up with the Dutch East India Company (VOC) who sent him to Nagasaki in 1690. Working as a surgeon he lived on Deshima island for close to four years and spent much of his spare time studying the language, history, medicine and botany of Japan. With the help of his interpreter Imamura Gen'eimon Eisei (1671-1736) he formed an important collection of books, maps, and artefacts which he managed to take back with him to Europe (the collection is now in the British Library). Twice he was allowed to make the journey to Edo on the annual mission (Edo sanpu) to visit the Shogun. He secretly took a compass which gave him the opportunity to collect the most accurate geographical information to date of the region along the Tokaido and parts of Kyushu. Amongst the beautifully engraved plates are nine section maps of the journey to Edo and it is the combination of these maps with the descriptive text that is of a precision and detail hitherto unknown. The 'History of Japan' was first published by C. Scheuchzer (1702-29), librarian to Sir Sloane (1660-1753) who had acquired Kaempfer's manuscripts as well as his collection after his death. It contains a wealth of information on Japanese customs, culture, medicine (acupuncture), and botany. The present first edition with the date of 1727 on the title is particularly rare. It does not include the 'Second Appendix' which was only issued in the following year. Cordier, 414-415; Streit VI, 1429; Laures, 594; Landwehr 530.

      Tumermani, Mantova 1727 - In 4? (mm 268x184); pp. XXII, 338 (ma 350) con 6 tavole f.t, fra cui 4 ripiegate e il ritratto all'antiporta di Vittorio Amedeo di Savoia; indice manoscritto successivo all'errata corrige. Frontespizio in rosso e nero con bella incisione raffigurante l'Italia con sul capo il Colosseo a mo' di corona. All'interno alcuni capolettera incisi e finalini xilografici. Note marginali a stampa in diverse lingue. Piena pergamena coeva, tassello rosso al dorso. Particolarmente apprezzabile Ë l'incisione raffigurante l'arco romano di Susa. Lievi tracce di sporco superficiale ma ottimo esemplare fresco e genuino. La trattazione verte sullo studio di antichi documenti che diede un importante apporto al progresso della paleografia e della filologia in Italia, in particolar modo nell'esame dei codici medioevali attraverso criteri di valutazione di tipo cronologico e statistico; studio sar? inoltre utile per avvalorare i dogmi della ortodossia cattolica contro il giansenismo. Un'appendice tratta, invece, dei popoli primitivi italici, in particolare degli etruschi. Brunet, III, 1291. Graesse, IV, 334. Diplomatica.

         Die evangelische Lebens-Pflichten : In einem Jahrgang der Predigten bey den Sonn- und Fest-Täglichen ordentlichen Evangelien

      Publisher: Berlin & Potsdam : Bey Johann Andreas Rüdigern | 1727 | | 1334 s + register | | Some wear, typical antiquarian condition. --- Information regarding the book: Fourth edition (1st. ed. Frankfurt 1692). "Philip Jacob Spener (1635-1705) is credited with forging the ideas of Arndt into a reform movement within Lutheranism. Like Arndt, he was a Lutheran pastor and scholar. He was deeply influenced by (Arndt's) True Christianity (1605), and in 1675, he wrote a foreword to a new edition of True Christianity. This foreword, reissued separately a year later, was entitled Pia Desideria, or Heartfelt Desire for a God-pleasing Reform of the True Evangelical Church, Together with Several Simple Christian Proposals Looking Toward this End. As the title suggests, this work not only critiqued the spiritual state of German Lutheranism; it also outlined a plan of reform. It was greeted with an enthusiastic response by many German people, but with sharp criticism by much of the the clergy. In his subsequent works, Spener continued to outline the needed reform of the Lutheran church"( Gary DeLashmutt at www.xenos.org/essays/pietism). Contemporary full calf, spines richly gilt in six compartments, red edges.

         Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World

      ondon- N/A, 1727 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition.. A scarce copy ofthe famous pretended third volume to Gulliver's travels. Two parts, bound as one. Collated: Complete, with frontispiece and half title, and decorative head and tail pieces. Printed the year after the first edition, this volume is one of the best known spurious editions of the extended adventures of Gulliver. Purporting to be a third volume of Gulliver's travels, the work appeared in 1727, unattributed to a publisher. The volume has two parts, 'A Second Voyage to Brobdingnag' and 'A Voyage to Sevarambia' and was ultimately a poor imitation of Swift'soriginal work, borrowing heavily froma French work 'L'Histoire des Severambes. 'In hisMemoirs of Jonathan Swift, Sir Walter Scott referred to this work as 'the most impudent combination of piracy and forgery that ever occurred in the literary world' and 'a mere bookseller's catch-penny' of 'little genius'. Regardless of Scott's poor opinion, the work is a fascinating piece of literary history, particularly to a collector of works relating to Swift and his most famous creation. Very scarce, held at the V&A Libraries, Cambridge University, Oxford University and UCL, and last sold at auction in 2004. Condition: Rebacked in calf with original boards preserved. Externally, sound with light rubbing to boards, heavier to extremities, and slight loss to the head and tail of the spine. Hinges reinforced. Internally, firmly bound. Pages bright with tidemarks to endpapers and first six pages, including frontispiece. Pages generally clean with light handlingmarks and spots, and pages slightly cockled. Overall: VERY GOOD.
