Nicolas Des Marets se brouille avec Fleuriau d'Armenonville, au sujet de l'adjudication de la glandée du bois de Boulogne. L'aménagement du parc occupe l'esprit de Des Marets. Il souhaite voir La Faluère dès son retour de Fontainebleau, absent pour cause d'adjudication des bois du roi : «Je vous parlerai sur ce qui regarde le repeuplement dans le bois de Boulogne». L'entrevue est fructueuse : il est décidé de regarnir toutes les clairières du bois. Mais cinq mois plus tard, les choses n'ont guère avancé. Des Marets s'impatiente. «Le tems presse pour cela, ainsy je vous prie de donner vos soins sans perte de tems, à faire exécuter ce qui a esté résolu, et les ordres que le Roy a donnez sur ce sujet». Membre du Conseil des finances de Louis XIV, il devient secrétaire d'État aux Affaires Étrangères puis à la Marine sous la Régence et enfin Garde des Sceaux de Louis XV.

Maria Sibylla Merian
Amsterdam 1705 - Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717) From Metamorphosis Insectorum Surinamensium Amsterdam: 1705 Hand-colored copperplate engravings 20” x 14” Maria Sybilla Merian (1647-1717) was born into a century of unparalleled change. The Thirty Years’ War, that had ravaged Europe since 1618, ended the year after her birth. The resulting Treaty of Westphalia brought about new religious freedoms. This new era of Enlightenment allowed science to blossom. It was this atmosphere that such figures such as Sir Isaac Newton (1643-1727) was able to define the laws of gravity, and George Buffon (1707-1788) advanced the evolution debate by exploring the theory that all living creatures are derived from one species that has changed over time. The great English poet, Alexander Pope (1688-1744), summed up this spirit of discovery perfectly, writing: “Know then thyself; presume not God to scan. The proper study of mankind is man.” With the new age of discovery, science more than ever before, came to depend upon the artist’s skill in illustration. Maria Sibylla was born in Frankfurt, Germany on April 2, 1647 to the famous publisher, Matthias Merian, and his second wife, Johanna Sibylla Heim. At the age of three her father died, and one year later her mother married the Dutch painter, Jacob Marrell, also a resident of Frankfurt. He provided her with an early artistic training and also introduced her to natural history illustration. Merian not only concentrated upon the beauty of flowers, the majority of hercompositions included insects, an unusual considerat … [Click Below for Full Description]

Newton, Isaac
London: Tonson Osborn and Longman. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION, complete with three folding engraved plates of the Temple of Solomon. "In his old age, Newton turned again to the theological interests that had burned with consuming intensity during the years of his early manhood... In the years 1705-1710, he returned to theology with renewed vigor, and for all his editions of the Principia and Opticks, theology was the primary occupation of his old age... Newton's conclusions in theology had been as radical as his conclusions in natural philosophy. So far they had seen the light of day only within a limited circle of trusted confidants... "Newton had been at work revising his interpretation of the prophesies and other theological works for about ten years when Caroline, princess of Wales, heard about his new principles of chronology in 1716. Interested, she summoned Newton and asked for a copy of what he had written. Newton never lightly surrendered one of his compositions. He had even less desire to hand over to the princess of Wales a treatise which might still have contained assertions heretical enough to secure his instant dismissal from the Mint. Well schooled as he was in the art of delay, he pleaded that the work was 'imperfect and confus'd,' but he knew very well that one did not dally with a royal command. In haste he drew up an 'Abstract' of his chronology, what was later called the 'Short Chronology,' which put the work into 'that shape the preperest for her Perusal...,' and delivered it to the princess … [Click Below for Full Description]

Maria Sibylla Merian
Amsterdam, 1705. Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717) Watercolor transfer print Paper size: 20” x 14” 31” x 24” framed This spectacular examples of Maria Sibylla Merian’s work are from one of a very few transfer-print watercolor volumes known to exist. Merian herself prepared the volume. After an uncolored print was made, she applied dampened paper to it, pressing by hand to create an image of the print in reverse. In this volume she chose to block out the plate numbers and then add by hand, to some images, numbers and notations. Merian then painstakingly watercolored the dried paper herself, ensuring that the colors were true to the specimens she had seen in South America, and also allowing her style to emerge with greatest clarity. The volume was not meant for sale, and its intended purpose cannot be known with any certainty. Perhaps it was created as a gift for a wealthy and important patron, perhaps Merian meant to keep it herself. What can be stated without a doubt is that these splendid images represent a unique opportunity to acquire original works by an artist who broke barriers as a woman, as a scientist and artist, and whose accomplishments are no less impressive today than they were in her time.

Raveneau de Lussan, a young Frenchman who whished to see the world, sailed from France for San Domingue in 1679. His indebtedness led him to join the buccaneers in search of his fortune. Raveneau spent several months raiding in the West Indies, and several years raiding the Pacific coast between Guatemala and Chile. He details both the romantic and the bleak sides of the buccaneering profession, interwoven with colorful descriptions of the natives of the regions and a clear picture of the Spanish colonies on the Pacific".

SCHENK, Petrus
Petrus Schenk, Amsterdam 1705 - Beautiful map of southern France in high detail. Shows the coastline from Narbonne to the Italian border in the south, and Lyon in the north. Minor aging along edges. Petrus Schenk (c.1660--1711) was a German engraver and cartographer. He began his training in Amsterdam in the art of mezzotint and soon began working closely with Gerard Valck. The two took advantage of the bustling cartographic trade in the city and quickly expanded their business from portraits and prints into maps and globes. In 1700, Schenk grew the business further by moving to Leipzig, Germany and opening a shop. As his sons and grandson returned to the Netherlands to become active engravers as well, the Schenk firm developed into one of the best-known publishing houses in 18th-century Amsterdam. This map attests to Schenk's prolific production and skill in both cartographic artistry and business. Map. Engraving with original hand outline. Map measures 18 7/8" x 23", page measures 21" x 24.25".

(Horsemanship)
London: H. Bonwicke and others, 1705. From an Engligh translation of George Guillet's Les Arts de l'Homme d'Epée ou le Dictionnaire du Gentilhomme, Paris 1678. 1 vols. Each approximately 3 x 4-1/2 inches; matted together and framed to 40-1/2 x 13-1/4 inches overall. Splendid Equitation Color Engravings, ca. 1705. The science of equitation and the means of teaching it developed primarily in 16th century Italy, and moved northward through Europe to England in the ensuing centuries. As time went on, techniques were refined, but the plates in early Italian and Continental manuals, such as this one, have seldom been equaled, much less surpassed.

Swift, Jonathan
London: John Nutt, 1705. "The Fourth Edition Corrected". Apparently there is very little difference between the early editions of this book; this title page is exactly like that of the first, but for the above-quoted line. Rebound, probably in the late 19th century, rebacked with boards that may be original, but the binder has added blind-stamped devices to match his devices on the spine. The spine is blind-stamped; the only gilt is '1705' at the bottom. A good plus copy overall. The boards once had gilt edges but it has mostly worn off, and the corners are worn down to the cardboard. The newer spine is still nice with just some rubbing at the ends. Hinges have weakened (endpapers show splits) but are still holding well. Internally, there are marginal water stains up to p. 15 of the Preface; the first original leaf is the title page, which is moderately foxed, as the next 2 pages; foxing and darkening of the text block comes and goes throughout the text. Many pages are quite bright; pp. 113-144 and 305-320 have the most darkening. Text consists of title page, Dedication, The Bookseller to the Reader, the Epistle Dedicatory to His Royal Highness Prince Posterity, the Preface, 'A Tale of a Tub' pp. 33-221, 'A Full and True Account of the Battel Fought Last Friday, between the Antient and the Modern Books in St. James's Library' pp. 223-278, and 'A Discourse Concerning the Mechanical Operation of the Spirit. In a Letter to a Friend. A Fragment' pp. 279-322. This is the last original page, followed by the binder's buff endpapers. Please e … [Click Below for Full Description]
