Mark Catesby
A very detailed hand colored engraving by Mark Catesby (1683-1749 from his breathtaking series "The Natural History of Carolina, Florida, and the Bahama Islands". This book was published in London 1731-1743 (first edition), 1754 (second edition), 1771-1775 (third edition). Overall this print is 14” x 20” and is from the second edition. In 1712, the English-born artist and naturalist Mark Catesby embarked on a series of expeditions to the southern colonies of British North America. Enthralled by the wildlife of the New World, he spent years traveling by foot through parts of present-day Virginia, Georgia, the Carolinas and the Bahamas. Over the course of his journeys, he encountered and documented uncountable varieties of animal and plant life that were entirely unknown to Europeans. His drawings and written observations were the raw material for an unprecedented project: a scientific account of previously uninvestigated wildlife, with illustrations taken from life. When Catesby returned to England from his final voyage to America in 1726, he was unable to afford the expense of having his drawings engraved professionally. Undeterred, he taught himself to etch with the assistance of Joseph Goupy, a French artist living in London, and went on to produce all but a few of the plates for his publication.

Tolet, Francois [1647 - 1724]. Lovell, A. - Translator

Illustrated with 20 inserted copperplate engravings [as required]. 8vo: A^4 B - N^8. F2 mis-signed E2. 6-3/16" x 3-5/8" In its day, Tolet's Treatise a well-regarded work on the subject; initially published in 1681, it was soon translated into English and German, with his work still being published in England in 1723, and in Paris as late as 1758. This English version of Tolet's Treatise one of the earliest books in this language on the subject, preceded only by, our research suggests, a 1677 translation of Groenveldt's Lithologia, and Fabricius Hildanus' Lithotomia Vesicæ, published in 1640. Quite rare on the market, especially complete with all 20 plates, with APBC not having any listings, and AE showing the most recent auction of that by Southeby's, in 1981, an imperfect copy lacking 2 plates. Modest wear & rubs to binding. Plates quite sharp, though text with some occasional light staining. Withal, a solid VG - VG+ copy. 19th C brown half-calf binding, with marbled paper boards First Edition in English (Krivatsy 11909; Wing T-1775). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

DU VERNEY Joseph Guichard
à Paris: Chez Estienne Michallet, 1683. Fine. Chez Estienne Michallet, à Paris 1683, In 12 (9x17cm), (24) 210pp., relié. - First edition, very rare. Illustrated with 16 folding plates unsigned. Bound in full brown sheepskin contemporary. Back tooled raised. Head cover and a restored area. Work towards the middle of the book in high margin, some worm inconsequential, but the worms have eaten the seams and are therefore vulnerable to p. 20 to p. 200 the problem from fading. The last print was cut too short and lacks the last few lines of text. This is the first scientific monograph of the structure of the ear and its diseases, it is therefore very valuable, and was crucial to the understanding of this little studied organ before. It is also the first work of this renowned anatomist and physiologist who was the teacher of the dolphin and taught in the garden of the king. Stamp of Doctor Maurice Petit de Montereau. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Young, Edward, 1683-1765
Young, Edward (1683-1765). The Revenge: a Tragedy in Five Acts... as performed at the theatre in Boston. Boston, Printed for David West, no. 36, Marlborough-Street, and John West, no. 75, Cornhill (1794). First American edition. Disbound. 60, [1]p. Contemporary ink ownership inscription, "[?] Bradley," in upper margin of titlepage. Initial leaves heavily tanned, soiled, and foxed. Three-inch closed tear in pp.21/22. Good. Agrees with the description in Evans, Amer. bibl., 26559, no. 12 (cf. also 28145) except for details of the imprint. The record notes this play is "A variation of the theme of Othello and Mrs. Behn's Abdelazer." The play was reprinted in Philadelphia: Published by Thomas H. Palmer, 1822. Performed by the Boston Theatre which was at the corner of Federal and Franklin streets, during the first season of this, the first permanent theatre in Boston (1794-96). It's premiere was March 26th 1794. The company's trustee was Charles Stuart Powell who acted in the performance, according to the castlist and to Seilhamer III.241. Seilhamer also notes that the production is by Edward Moore. This is probably an incorrect attribution confusing Edward Young with Edward Moore (1712-1757) whose Gamester was also published by West. West also published a number of plays to coincide with the first season of the theatre including Gustavus Vasa a tragedy, in five acts, The foundling a comedy, in five acts, The busy body a comedy, The belle's stratagem a comedy, The West Indian a comedy, in five acts and about 15 others. This publishing project did not extend to the second and l … [Click Below for Full Description]

His drawings and written observations were the raw material for an unprecedented project: a scientific account of previously uninvestigated wildlife, with illustrations taken from life. When Catesby returned to England from his final voyage to America in 1726, he was unable to afford the expense of having his drawings engraved professionally.
