         Lettres de Monsieur Antoine Arnauld Docteur de Sorbonne.

      - A Nancy, aux dépens de Joseph Nicolaï [i.e. en Hollande], 1727-1743. 9 tomes reliés en 4 volumes in-8, demi-vélin à coins de l'époque, dos lisses titrés à la plume, tranches rouges. Edition originale de la correspondance du Grand Arnauld, donnée par Jacques Fouillou, diacre licencié de la Sorbonne, qui se retira en Hollande auprès de Pasquier Quesnel. Exceptionnel exemplaire complet du rare 9e volume et de son supplément en pagination séparée ; ces deux dernières parties parurent seize ans après les 8 premiers volumes. Cette volumineuse correspondance constitue l’une des sources fondamentales pour l’histoire intellectuelle de la période qui s’étend de 1640 à 1694, date de la mort l’auteur. « Le grand Arnauld n’a laissé ni mémoires ni autobiographie; sa correspondance est donc d’une importance capitale » (‘Sources de l’Histoire de France’, II, p. 266, n°1032). L’adresse de Nancy est fictive. Donnée comme imprimée à Amsterdam par Weller ('Falsche Druckorte’, p. 89), les parties 1 à 8 ont plus probablement été imprimées à Utrecht par Corneille Guillaume Le Febvre. Le tome IX et son supplément sans doute en France. (Colonia, ‘Dictionnaire des Livres jansénistes’, II, 414. Willaert, ‘Bibliotheca Janseniana Belgica’, 9609). Quelques craquelures et petits défauts de vélin. Exemplaire comportant la signature autographe ex-libris de « Frederic Ernest d’Isembourg » (Friedrich Ernst zu Isenburg, 1709 – 1784) en tête de chaque volume. Très bon exemplaire, frais, très bien relié à l'époque. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

This book is a response to a point in A Discourse of the Judicial Authority Belonging to the Office of Master of the Rolls in the High Court of Chancery (1727) by Philip Yorke, Earl of Hardwicke. Burroughs believes Yorke is incorrect when he stated that the Chancery court was directed by two judges that are not "co-ordinate, but in a subordination of one to the other" (3).

A RICHLY ILLUSTRATED EDITION OF OLEARIUS' CELEBRATED TRAVEL ACCOUNT, translated 70 years before by Abraham Wicquefort and edited by Van der Aa; from the collection of one of the most important families of the Belgian nobility. Olearius (Adam Oehlschlaeger, 1603-71) travelled to Ispahan on the Duke of Holstein's train during the Duke's official visit to the Tsar and the King of Persia; this was the first German expedition to Persia. "The head of the [Diplomatic] Mission was one Otto Brugman who according to Olearius was a boor and an idiot. [.] Brugman seems to have insulted every official along the way, molested Armenian women and heaped abuse on his subordinates. [.] Brugman came to a sad ending. He was executed on 5 May 1640 for adultery. Olearius, who had a most unpleasant stay in Persia, comments on many aspects of Persian life and what he witnessed [.] The ambassador and the author had an audience with Shah Safi whom he described as humourless. The author was probably unaware that Shah Safi was drunk most of the time" (Ghani). Olearius's account greatly influenced European opinion of Russia and Persia in the 17th and 18th centuries. The work is of great cartographic importance, particulary for its large map of the river Volga. The illustrations include a large folding plate of Riga, and fine views of Tver, Danzig, Moscow, Kazan, Samara, Bagdad and Ispahan, among many others.

Historiated headpieces, decorative initials and endpieces. Title page of the Matthew Gospel with publisher's device on title page.

Done into English, with additional notes. Numb. I (to be continu'd Monthly). The 256 page introductory essay describes at length the author's knowledge of ancient Jewish and non-Jewish sources. They explain their understanding of Devine wisdom as inspiration and truth, both in the life and time of Jesus and in their own day. The French edition was published in Amsterdam in 1718, translated and annotated by Isaac de Beausobre and Jacques Lentfant. I. de Beausobre (1659-1738), a French Protestant, migrated to Berlin in 1694, where he became chaplain to the King of Prussia, and counsellor of the royal Consistory. J. Lenfant (1661-1728) was pastor of the French Protestant church at Berlin and chaplain to the King (DM 3808). Beausobre was best known for his history of Manichaeism and Lenfant for his many works on church history. According to Thoams Thornton this edition distinguishes itself from other early translations of the Luther Bible in that it marks the supplementary words with considerable care. The english translation was done by Jeremiah Batley and Nonconformist minister Samuel Chandler (Steven DeRose, List of English Bible Versions, Translations, and Paraphrases). Our copy is complete with only St. Matthews being published in English (Herbert 980).Binding with front cover detached but present, back joint cracked but firm with small chips at head and tail of spine; wear along edges and rubbed.

      Translator, London 1727 - A magnificently bound complete first edition first issue, in folio, of Kaempfer's important work on Japan, one of the most influential histories to shape the West's conception of that country for over 150 years. The book contains all 45 plates called for, all in good condition, as well as both title pages and the additional title page containing symbols of various clans in Japan. It has been magnificently bound in beautiful full paneled calf, with period appropriate gilt work to the spines and morocco labels by a master binder. This is the scarce 1st edition 1st issue copy of 1727, which does not contain the "2nd Appendix" which was included in the 2nd issue of the work. The books are large folios measuring 15 x 9. They are magnificently rebound in full period calf leather with panels and blind tooling, five raised bands to the spines with era-appropriate gilt devices in the panels, red and green morocco labels, all in fine condition. End papers are renewed. The book is complete with all 45 plates as called for, many folding. Plates V and VI are out of order but still present. Both title pages are present as is the beautifully printed frontis title. Pagination is [12] Lii, 392 [4] 20 plates; [4] 393-612, 76, [4], 25 plates, [6]. One page has a short marginal tear, 2 pages have small marginal chips, page 39 of the appendix has a repaired tear at the top of the page with a small hole in the header, there is occasional browning and foxing, mostly at the beginning and end of the books, pages 241-245 have a bit more browning as well as some pencil notations. Throughout there is the slightest hint of browning/staining at the top edge - you can see this in the photos - but it is minor. Paper is crisp and wavy as is normal with this book. The plates are in good condition with just a bit of browning and age, the large folding map has the beginning of separation at the bottom gutter. Contains the list of subscribers, main titles in red and black. Binding is tight and firm. Engelbert Kaempfer (September 16, 1651 - November 2, 1716) was a German naturalist, physician, and writer known for his tour of Russia, Persia, India, South-East Asia, and Japan between 1683 and 1693. His History of Japan, published posthumously in 1727, was the chief source of Western knowledge about the country throughout the 18th and mid-19th centuries when Japan was closed to foreigners. At Kaempfer's death his mostly unpublished manuscripts were purchased by Sir Hans Sloane, and conveyed to England. Among them was a History of Japan, translated from the manuscript into English by Sloane's librarian John Gaspar Scheuchzer (1702-1729). It was first published at London, in 2 vols. , in 1727. The German version was not published until 50 years later, in 1777. A beautiful copy of this important and delightful work. ; Folio 13" - 23" tall [Attributes: First Edition]

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).

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).
