        A JOURNEY TO THE WORLD UNDER-GROUND. BY NICHOLAS KLIMUS

      Printed for T. Astley . and B. Collins, London 1742 - [4],324pp. 12mo. Modern half-calf and marbled boards, gilt label, to style. A few trivial press and finger smudges, but a very good, crisp copy, neatly bound. First edition in English of Holberg's great utopian novel / imaginary voyage, first published anonymously, in Latin, in Leipzig in 1741. Holberg, an accomplished playwright, novelist, historian and essayist, is regarded as one of the primary literary figures of 18th century Danish and Norwegian letters. Indebted to mythology and Halley's late 17th century speculations, this popular novel in many ways established the now classic hollow earth literary convention popularized in both fiction and pseudoscience: Niels Klim falls down a shaft while exploring a cave and find himself in free space orbiting an inner sun. His travels in the inner world take him to a number of strange lands inhabited by intelligent animals, disparate cultures and, in one case, by animated musical instruments. Much in the manner of Swift, Holberg utilizes Klim's encounters to comment upon, or satirize, social, political, religious and economic topics in the actual world. Translations into German, French, Dutch, Danish, Swedish, Russian, Hungarian and several other languages followed, with the text's eventual popularity rivaling Defoe and Swift and at least one imitation appeared in 1745. ESTC's collation does not call for a half-title. ESTC T91064. HOWGEGO H26. NEGLEY 576. LEWIS (PENN STATE), p.92.

        Anfangsgründe der Wundarzneykunst. (7 Bde., compl.).

      8, ca. 3000 S., 40 von 44 meist gefalzten Kupferstichen, HLdr. der Zeit mit Goldprägung, Im Bd. 2 (von den Kopfwunden) fehlen die vier Kupfertafeln Bd. 5. Wurmgänge über 25 Bl. (minimaler Buchstabenverlust), einge Seiten mit leichten Bleistiftanstreichungen, einige Seiten wasserrändig, wenig stockfleckig, insgesamt gutes Exemplar. August Gottlieb Richter (1742 - 1812), einer wichtigsten deutschen Chirurgen. Richter begann 1760 in Göttingen ein Medizinstudium. Akademischer Lehrer war sein Onkel Georg Gottlob Richter, der dort seinerzeit den Lehrstuhl für Medizin innehatte. Nach seiner Promotion 1764 begab er sich auf eine zweijährige Studienreise, die ihn an wichtige Studienorte der Medizin wie Paris, London, Oxford, Leiden, Amsterdam und Groningen führte. Dort machte er Bekanntschaft mit berühmten Ärzten wie Jean Louis Petit (1674?-1750) und Percivall Pott. Nach Rückkehr wurde Richter in Göttingen eine außerordentliche Professur angetragen, 1771 erhielt er eine ordentliche Professur. Seine Arbeitsgebiete waren medizinische und operative Chirurgie, sowie Augenheilkunde. Richter verlieh der damals eher handwerklich orientierten Ausbildung der Wundärzte, eine wissenschaftliche Grundlage. Ein wichtiger Beitrag hierzu waren seine zahlreichen Veröffentlichungen, unter denen die siebenbändige Anfangsgründe der Wundarzneykunst, (1782 - 1804), die zweibändige Abhandlung von den Brüchen (1777 - 1779) und die Abhandlung von der Ausziehung des grauen Stars (1773) herausragende Bedeutung besitzen. Richter gab auch eines der frühesten Referateblätter, eine Zeitschrift für ein medizinisches Spezialgebiet, heraus. Die von 1771 bis 1797 in Göttingen und Gotha erschienene "Chirurgische Bibliothek" gab vor allem deutschen Chirurgen einen Überblick über die während eines Jahres erschienene, auch ausländische, Fachliteratur ihres Faches. Als Empiriker und Mann der Praxis reduzierte der das reichhaltige Instrumentarium der Chirurgen auf wesentliche Instrumente, denen er mit der knieförmig gebogenen Schere aber auch ein weiteres hinzufügte.1780 eröffnete er in Göttingen eine chirurgische Klinik mit 15 Betten und wurde im gleichen Jahr Leibarzt des hannoverschen Königs. Richter war neben dem Würzburger Professor Carl Caspar von Siebold der führende Chirurg seiner Zeit.

        Religiosa hospitalidad por los hijos del piadoso coripheo patriarcha y padre de pobres S. Iuan Ð Dios en su provincia de S. Raphael de las Islas Philipinas

      Joseph de la Puerta, Granada 1742 - "Medicine, Public Health, Arts & Politics in Philippines". 4to. [2], [40], 261, [3] p. Engraved titlepage, initials head and tail pieces. Engraving, 2 folding plans, 1 plate. Contemporary vellum. This remarkable wide-ranging book discusses medicine, public health, arts, politics, commerce and religion in the Philippines. Retana describes it as Â'Unico en su géneroÂ'.Maldonado de Puga, a member of the Order of San Juan Hospitalier founded in 1572 reports on the introduction and practice of Western medicine in the Philippines, the foundation of hospitals and of the intimate relationship between medicine and the Church in the Spanish colony. Only 8 items related to medicine in Philippines, most of them official regulations, had been published before the appearance of this pioneering work (see Francisco Guerra, Bibliografía médica americana y filipina. Periodo formative. Madrid 1999, vol II.). Since their arrival in Manila in 1611 from New Spain the Order of San Juan Hospitalier managed and founded hospitals, among them the Royal Hospital of Manila, the hospital in Cavite and hospitals elsewhere in the Philippines. They were also put in charge of the Hospital of the Santa Misericordia in Manila which was open to the poor and also to slaves. Many patients who went to this hospital were in a terminal state.The Order of San Juan also founded a convent and a Church in Manila. By 1727 the church was in a parlous state and a new one built to replace it was inaugurated in 1732. The two large engraved folding plates by the Spanish engraver Joseph Andrade represent the exterior and the rich baroque Philippine interior of the new church. The plates and the detailed description of the churchÂ's architecture, chapels, decorations, paintings and sculptures are today of great historical interest, being the only surviving record of these buildings which were destroyed in the famous 1863 earthquake. The book also deals with the various religious celebrations, the music that was played, the miracles attributed to various images performed on Filipinos and slaves. There is a section listing the persons of note who were buried in the church and the people who supported the order financially. The description of the lavish festivities held to celebrate the opening of the church which lasted for several days allows the book to lay claim to being one of the earliest festival books of the Philippines. The book highlights the role of the Regidor of Manila, Jose Antonio Nuño de Villavicencio as an active patron of the hospitals of San Juan de Dios. It describes his replacement of Chinese weights and measures with Spanish ones in the commerce of Manila. Maldonado de Puga Â'describes the system of weighing in use by the Sangley traders in the islands, and the substitution therefor (1727) of the Castilian steel- yard and standards of weight; he states that he is the first to explain the Chinese system, and we know of no other writer who has done soÂ' The Philippine Islands 1493-1898, Edited and annotated by Emma Helen Blair and James Alexander Robertson (Cleveland, 1907), vol 47, p. 16 The book usefully reproduces a great number of official documents that illustrate the relationship between the civilian and religious authorities in the Philippines in the XVIIth and XVIIIth century and the hospitalier order of San Juan de Dios. # WorldCat:: 3 copies in US libraries (Newberry, Cornell, JCB. * Retana 269; Palau 147786; Páez.

        PARADISE REGAIN'D. A POEM, IN FOUR BOOKS. TO WHICH IS ADDED SAMSON AGONISTES; AND POEMS UPON SEVERAL OCCASIONS, WITH A TRACTATE OF EDUCATION... The Eighth Edition, corrected

      London: Printed for J. and R. Tonson int he Strand, 1742. [6],504pp. plus engraved frontispiece. Title page printed in red and black. Contemporary calf, spine gilt with raised bands, red morocco label. Covers detached, spine abraded, else very good. In a red morocco box. Provenance: Reuben Skelton (armorial bookplate); Thomas Jefferson (with his initials on pages 113 and 273); Martha Randolph (inscription); Virginia Jefferson Randolph (signature); Mary Jefferson Randolph (signature); Harold Jefferson Coolidge (bookplate). By the end of the 18th century Thomas Jefferson held the largest private library in America. In 1783, his library at Monticello included 2,640 volumes. Over the next thirty years, the collection swelled to over 6,000. In 1815, Jefferson's library was sold en bloc to the Library of Congress to replace their collection lost during the War of 1812 when the British burned the Capitol. The bulk of that collection was destroyed, again by fire, on Christmas eve 1851. Jefferson would build another library between 1815 and his death in 1826, which was dispersed at auction in 1829 by Nathaniel Poor. The provenance of the present volume pre-dates both of those sales, having originally been owned by Reuben Skelton of Virginia, the first husband of Martha Jefferson's stepmother, Elizabeth Lomax Skelton. Elizabeth Skelton was the third wife of Martha's father, John Wayles, and this volume was evidently inherited by her with her husband's estate. Elizabeth passed away shortly after her marriage to Martha's father, and this volume would have subsequently passed to Martha upon her father's death in 1773. Alternatively, given the interrelated marriages of the period, the volume could also have been inherited from Reuben Skelton by his brother, Bathurst Skelton, who would become Martha's first husband in 1766, until his death in 1768. Either way, the volume entered into Thomas Jefferson's library at Monticello in the 1770s. In his characteristic fashion, Thomas Jefferson has inscribed his initials on signature marks I1 and T1. The front pastedown furthermore bears the signature of his daughter Martha Randolph and her daughters Virginia and Mary. Further indications of provenance show the volume descending among various Randolph and Coolidge relatives into the 20th century. Why this volume was not sold to the Library of Congress in 1815 remains a mystery, but was perhaps in Jefferson's daughter's possession given her inscription. Among the surviving volumes from Jefferson's first library at the Library of Congress are other volumes with provenance to Reuben Skelton. Among the favorite and influential authors among the Founding Fathers, John Milton's republican political philosophy and radical thoughts on human liberty resonated with Thomas Jefferson. Indeed, even at a young age, Jefferson's commonplace book quotes Milton more than any other English poet. Jefferson's statute of Virginia for religious freedom, among his most important contributions, borrowed heavily from Milton's ideas on the separation of church and state. A quarto Baskerville edition of PARADISE REGAIN'D, as well as octavo Baskerville editions of both Paradise Lost and Paradise Regained, were among the books sold to the Library of Congress in 1815, though were destroyed in the subsequent fire (see Sowerby 4287 and 4288). The present volume not listed in Sowerby. ESTC T134211.

João IV ter escapado com vida da tentativa de regicídio de que foi alvo, o que foi explicado como manobras castelhanas, tendo a capela integrado um conjunto de obras régias de forte carga ideológica, apresentando-se como um dos primeiros monumentos de celebração do sucesso da Restauração. Obra importantisima para a compreenção de tudo o que diz respeito à organização desta instituição portuguesa e católica que teve uma importância fundamental no fianciamento da expansão e da colonização ulramarina. A Bula da Cruzada, ou Bula da Santa Cruzada, foi a designação dada às sucessivas concessões de indulgências aos fiéis da Igreja Católica em Portugal e nas suas possessões que contribuíssem com os seus bens para fins considerados como de interesse para a expansão do Catolicismo. As indulgências eram inicialmente concedidas a quem apoiasse as cruzadas na Terra Santa. Terminada a reconquista, a concessão de indulgências contra pagamento para a Bula da Cruzada manteve-se, passando os rendimentos obtidos a ser aplicados na manutenção das ordens militares, nas conquistas ultramarinas e no resgate de cativos. A Bula da Cruzada foi extinta a 31 de dezembro de 1914, pelo papa Bento XV, que a substituiu pelos Indultos Pontifícios, cujos rendimentos eram utilizados para a fundação e manutenção de seminários. Estes indultos foram extintos em 1966 com a disciplina penitencial decretada pela Constituição Apostólica. Este Regimento da Bula da Cruzada termina na página 80, datado de Lisboa, de 10 de Maio de 1634. Seguem-se os alvarás para cobrar as dívidas da Cruzada e das nomeações de Oficiais e de Tesoureiros. Segue-se a Bula sobre Oratórios e a interpretação da Cruzada do Papa Leão X; a Bula para a taxa das esmolas; a Bula do Papa Clemente VIII; o Sexénio de 1609 (isto é, administração da Bula concedida durante seis anos) do Papa Paulo V; idem de 1615; Carta do Papa Paulo V sobre a fábrica da Igreja de S.

        Signed legal document to a military widow

      Dover, NH 1742 - A rare memento from the War of Jenkins' Ear -- the first time that a Regiment of Colonial-American troops was raised and made part of the Regular British Army -- and sent to fight outside North America. Exceptional legal document signed "B. Wentworth," 1 page, 6.5 x 7.5 inches, written completely in the hand of James Jeffrey, clerk, Dover, New Hampshire, December 2, 1742, addressing the complaint of a widow whose husband was killed in military Service of the Crown, in full: "Whereas the Widow of Thomas Pinkham late of Dover in New Hampshire, complains: That her late husband did enlist himself in His Majesties Service for the late Cuba Expedition. And several of his members of his house say there was allowed him the said Thomas Pinkham the sum of two pounds - fourteen shillings for his subsistence money in that Service: which was never paid him per her. Wherefore Voted, that the said Widow be paid out of the money in the Treasury for payment of contingencies - the said sum of two pounds - fourteen shillings, old tenor in full of all Demands." Note: The War of Jenkins' Ear was a conflict between Britain and Spain that lasted from 1739 to 1748, with major operations largely ending by 1742. On August 4, 1742, Admiral Edward Vernon and Major General Thomas Wentworth landed troops at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in what was originally perceived as an easy victory over the Spaniards. Instead the British accomplished nothing but the loss of over 3,400 soldiers killed, wounded, or missing, having succumbed to disease, too weak to repel the constant attacks by Spanish guerrillas. On December 9 they re-embarked and sailed to Port Royal. Near fine condition.

        A MAP OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE IN AMERICA WITH THE FRENCH, SPANISH AND THE DUTCH SETTLEMENTS ADJACENT THERETO.

      Amsterdam: Printed for John Covens and Cornelius Mortier, [n.d., ca. 1742]. - Copper-engraved map on four sheets, joined, 46 x 41 inches. In near fine condition, handsomely framed in a gold leaf frame, under rated plexiglass. Henry Popple produced this map under the auspices of the Lord Commissioners of Trade and Plantations to help settle disputes arising from the rival expansions of English, Spanish and French colonies. "France claimed not only Canada, but also territories drained by the Mississippi and its tributaries - in practical terms, an area of half a continent" - Goss, THE MAPPING OF NORTH AMERICA, p.122. The thrust of British mapmaking after 1718 was to establish her presence cartographically on the French. Hence the title "The British Empire in America."Nevertheless, in making the map, Popple used the best available geographical information: Colonel Barnwell's map of the southeast; De L'Isle's "Carte de la Louisiane"; Cadwallader Colden's map of the Iroquois nations, and seems to have come up with a map that did not please imperialistic British viewers as much as it did those who only wanted an accurate depiction. The result is a vast map of North America never before delineated in such detail, and a source of delight and intrigue to this day. Babinksi notes that George Washington owned a copy of the Key map (Popple's abbreviated version) and Benjamin Franklin ordered two copies for the Pennsylvania Assembly in 1746 and another in 1752. The Popple and Mitchell (1755) maps were the most important maps of North America made in the 18th century and were widely known and referred to throughout the formation of the United States. This example is the second state of the edition published by Covens and Mortier in Amsterdam, circa 1742. Covens & Mortier was a highly respected Amsterdam map publishing firm, which, more than any of their colleagues, maintained the high standards established by the Dutch and French cartographers of the previous century. It is differentiated from the first state by the word "Hollandish" being changed to "The Dutch" in the cartouche. The original Popple map is virtually impossible to present as a unified piece (joined, it measures more than eight feet square). The Covens and Mortier version of Popple offers in a more manageable and accessible form all the geographical and political material of the original, including the depiction of Wager's sea battle with the Spanish near Cartagena in 1707. The region in question, the Eastern half of North America and a portion of northern South America, is laid out on four sheets, which joined are 46 x 41 inches. An excellent example of the most important American map of its era. Mark Babinski, HENRY POPPLE'S 1733 MAP (New Jersey, 1998), state 2 of the Covens & Mortier edition. E.

      1742 - By: Matthias Seutter Date: 1742 (Published) Augsburg Size: 22.75 x 19.5 inches (57.8 cm x 50 cm) This magnificent map of the southern part of the boot of Italy by Matthias Seutter is one of the most attractive of its time. Starting just south of Rome on the west coast and a bit farther north on the east coast, this map focuses on the Kingdom of Naples, and the northern portion of Sicily shown at the toe. The region is divided into provinces and includes, as noted by the key in the lower left quadrant, all signs of human activity, including major cities, minor cities, villages, fortifications, archbishoprics, universities, and even lone castles in the countryside. Seutter takes great care to depict topographical features including gulfs, ports, rivers, and lakes. Mountains and hills are delineated. Volcanic islands to the west of Italy are included, and a large scale cartouche in the lower right quadrant presents a spectacular view of Vesuvius erupting. The ornate title cartouche in the upper right quadrant is bordered by coats of arms of the regions named in the cartouche, and cherubim allegorically stitch the principalities together with a ribbon on which the names of the regions represented are written. Condition: This map is in B+ condition. Dark and vibrant impression with original color. Centerfold separation closed with archival material on the verso. Inventory #10888
