        LA THEORIE ET LA PRATIQUE DU JARDINAGE. Ou L'On Traite A Fond Des Beaux Jardins appellés communément Les Jardins De Propreté, Comme sont Les Parterres, Les Bosquets, Les Boulingrins, &c...

      First Dutch edition of the most influential work on garden design of the eighteenth century. It effectively codified the design principles of the French formal garden and continued in print for at least six decades. "France did not become mistress of Europe in garden art merely because of such of her examples as could be copied; of almost equal importance was the wide popularity of a book which first appeared anonymously in France in 1709 under the title THEORIE ET PRATIQUE DU JARDINAGE... Never before did a book lay down the principles of any style so surely and so intelligibly in instructive precepts." (Gothein, HISTORY OF GARDEN ART, volume II, pg 111.) This edition, published in Holland, is the first of many pirated editions to appear outside of France. It carefully follows the original Paris edition, even in its pagination, and the plates are nicely engraved by J. Lamsvelt with strong dark impressions.4to (25.8 x 20 cm); (xii) + 208 pp. with numerous engraved text illustrations and ornaments + 32 folding plates (chiefly garden plans). Recent quarter vellum with red leather spine label and gilt lettering; marginal foxing of a few plates, but generally a clean and attractive copy.

Unter den bemerkenswerten Kupfern sind hervorzuheben: ein König, der mit einem Zirkel Nasen ausmisst - Eine "Gourdonische" Münzmeisterin, die einen "gestempelten Prinz von Wales" ausbrütet - Fürsten, die auf einer Welkugel stehen, welche auf einem Krebs liegt etc. Interessant ist auch das Vorwort des Autors, der sich zu zeitgenössischen Zeitungen äussert und sein Programm entwirft, das eine Mischung aus Zeitung und eingehenderem Traktat mit Analyse und amüsantem Kommentar sein soll. - Gut erhalten, etwas gebräunt, kaum fleckig. Einband berieben und etwas angestaubt. Ein Paar Pergament-Bindebänder später ergänzt.

        Remarks upon the present negotiations of peace begun between Britain and France

      London 8vo (20.5 cm; 8"). [2] ff., 35, [1] pp.. 1711 Uncut copy of the first (or possibly second) edition of what the Henry Stevens Company described in its 1927 Catalogue of Rare Americana (#671) as a "secretly printed" pamphlet in which the anonymous writer (Arthur Manwaring) studies what he sees as the problem of the growing power and influence of France in Europe and the New World (Canada, the West Indies, and potentially much of the Spanish empire). Such concern sprang from the Peace of Utrecht ending the War of the Spanish Succession, by which the French House of Bourbon assumed the Spanish throne following the death of the last of the Hapsburgs and a decade-long war. There were two editions printed: This, with the pagination as above and with the title-page sporting a double-rule around the text area, and another with only 32 pp. and no border on the title-page. Precedence apparently not established. Uncut, some chipping of edges. Recent boards covered with charcoal-colored paper. Some cockling and staining. Six-digit number stamped on half-title. A good+ copy.

HUNTER/MACALPINE 296: "the first book on minor mental maladies ‘writ by way of information to patients‘ rather than ‘to teach other practitioners‘, and to make what he had to say palatable". Mandeville (geb. 1670 in oder in der Nähe von Rotterdam, gestorben 1733 in London) ist sehr berühmt geworden wegen seiner "Bienenfabel" (1714). "Über M.s Leben ist nur wenig bekannt. Nach dem Besuch der Erasmus-Schule in Rotterdam schrieb sich M. 1685 an der Universität von Leyden als Student der Philosophie ein, legte 1689 seine Dissertation in Philosophie vor und erhielt 1691 nach der Abfassung einer medizinischen Studie den Grad eines Doktors der Medizin. Ende der neunziger Jahre faßte M. dann den Entschluß, sich in England niederzulassen, das seiner Meinung nach die Spitze der europäischen Zivilisation verkörperte" (Biographisch-Bibliographisches Kirchenlexikon, Bd. V, 1933). In diesem Buch wählt er den Dialog zwischen Arzt ("Misomedon") und Patientin ("Polytheca") als Darstellungsform. Amüsant der Dialog über die Frage, weshalb die Medikamente solche merkwürdigen Namen bekommen, die auch ein Latein- und Griechischkundiger nicht versteht: man kann sie dann leichter für mehr Geld verkaufen!

The multi-talented physician Magnus Gabriel von Block (1669-1722) spoke eleven languages and was a diligent writer. After studies in Uppsala and extensive travels abroad, during which Block became acquainted with Leibniz and studied medicine, among other things, he became a district medical officer in Östergötland in 1702 and settled in Norrköping. In several of his works he fought against superstition and belief in miracles, phenomena which still had a stronghold in Sweden at the time.

With early engraved armorial bookplate to front pastedown. . First Edition. RISM C737. Not in BUC. Campra "was a leading figure in French theatrical and sacred music in the early 18th century... [He] was the most catholic of the generation of composers that flourished between LullyÂ’s death (1687) and RameauÂ’s début as an opera composer (1733). It is no longer possible to sustain the argument that Campra and his contemporaries were mere ‘imitators of LullyÂ’. With his delicate sense of orchestral colour, the kaleidoscopic brilliance with which he used the dance, his gift for melody and his sensitivity to the expressive possibilities of harmony, Campra greatly expanded the musical vocabulary of Lully. Through his opéras-ballets he introduced a degree of verisimilitude to the French lyric stage.' James R. Anthony in Grove online "Little is known of [Desmarest's] early musical life other than that he was one of the boy pages of Louis XIVÂ’s musical establishment. There, directly under the influence of Pierre Robert and Henry Du Mont at an important period in the development of the grand motet, he probably also encountered Lully, who used the chapel pages to augment his performances... Like his contemporaries, Desmarest worked within the framework that Lully had established, while developing certain aspects of it. He made effective use of orchestrally accompanied recitative, with the strings taking over from the continuo at telling moments. Invocations of oracles and spirits and their pronouncements are a feature of nearly all DesmaretsÂ’ tragédies en musique; characteristically they are treated with a low-lying accompaniment, often with an obsessive rhythmic pattern and, in what for its time was a remote key, F minor. His soliloquies use effective changes of style and texture (e.g. from continuo to string accompaniment or from air to recitative and back) to illustrate the uncertainties and changes of mood being expressed. His enthusiasm for bass voices and low sonorities is found in a type of chorus in which a single melody line is directed to be sung by the basses only, an idea which was subsequently taken up by other composers." Caroline Wood in Grove online With interesting reference to Desmarests's exile in the "Avertissement."

[He] was the most catholic of the generation of composers that flourished between Lully's death (1687) and Rameau's debut as an opera composer (1733). It is no longer possible to sustain the argument that Campra and his contemporaries were mere 'imitators of Lully'. With his delicate sense of orchestral colour, the kaleidoscopic brilliance with which he used the dance, his gift for melody and his sensitivity to the expressive possibilities of harmony, Campra greatly expanded the musical vocabulary of Lully. Through his operas-ballets he introduced a degree of verisimilitude to the French lyric stage.' James R. Anthony in Grove online "Little is known of [Desmarest's] early musical life other than that he was one of the boy pages of Louis XIV's musical establishment. There, directly under the influence of Pierre Robert and Henry Du Mont at an important period in the development of the grand motet, he probably also encountered Lully, who used the chapel pages to augment his performances... Like his contemporaries, Desmarest worked within the framework that Lully had established, while developing certain aspects of it. He made effective use of orchestrally accompanied recitative, with the strings taking over from the continuo at telling moments. Invocations of oracles and spirits and their pronouncements are a feature of nearly all Desmarets' tragedies en musique; characteristically they are treated with a low-lying accompaniment, often with an obsessive rhythmic pattern and, in what for its time was a remote key, F minor. His soliloquies use effective changes of style and texture (e.g. from continuo to string accompaniment or from air to recitative and back) to illustrate the uncertainties and changes of mood being expressed. His enthusiasm for bass voices and low sonorities is found in a type of chorus in which a single melody line is directed to be sung by the basses only, an idea which was subsequently taken up by other composers." Caroline Wood in Grove online With interesting reference to Desmarests's exile in the "Avertissement."

        A letter to a member of the October-Club: Shewing, that to yield Spain to the Duke of Anjou by a peace, wou'd be the ruin of Great Britain. The second edition, with additions

      London: A. Baldwin 8vo (20.8 cm, 8.25"). vi, 42 pp.. 1711 Generally attributed to Francis Hare, Bishop of Chichester, but also attributed to Jonathan Swift, this anonymously published political analysis expresses concern not only that putting the Duke of Anjou on the Spanish throne would tilt the balance of power in Europe too far towards France, but also that such action would greatly damage the livelihoods of English textile workers, among others dependent on international commerce; also questioned are Swift's views on the ramifications of trade with Portuguese America. This is the second, expanded edition. Blue-green paper wrappers, old style. Title-page with small numeric stamp, faint traces of other annotations. Small area of worming in inner margins, touching a very few letters. A few scattered spots, otherwise clean; edges untrimmed.

        Relation du Voyage de l'Isle d'Eutopie

      Henry van Rhin, Delft 1711 - Duodecimo, speckled calf, worn at extremities, spine chipped with some loss at head, joints starting; internally quite good. First edition: a theocratic republic on a South American Island.The author of this utopia remains unknown, but the preface is signed E.R.V.F.L. A fertile island with the capital Macarie had been sliding into corruption and godlessness until society was 'gradually reformed by men's reasoning their way to discover the best procedures' (Gibson). The society they create shares many of its basic tenets with Plato's Republic, most obviously the fact that children are taught and shared communally to avoid the excessive indulgence of parents. All of the people are descendants of the marriage between a French merchant and his wife Marie, who had ten children. The comparison is made with the tribes of Israel: 'Comme le peuple juif descendoit d'un seul Abraham, les Eutopiens descendent tous d'un seul homme.'Meant as a direct comment on the state of European society, the work avers that the piety and strict religion of the Island provide a good and practical example.

Paris: Christophe Ballard, 1711. |~||~||~||~| Originally published in Paris 1674, this is one of many later editions. The text stresses pigment and colour recipes (most of the book is devoted to them) but there are also sections on drawing, use of the compass, preparation of vellum, etc. Professor Herbert comments on this book, stating "It consists largely of recipes for pigment mixtures and, typically of seventeenth century manuals, these are subordinated to the images the painter creates. One finds advice on pigments for tan architecture, red drapery, blue skies, rather than on the colors themselves." Massing 16, listing 26 editions or printings and she states that the "above list is undoubtedly incomplete."

Wood's Attempt to Discover a North-East Passage to China. IV. F. Marten's Observations made in Greenland.

      London: Printed for D. Brown, W. Innys, and T. Ward, 1711 - Octavo (190 ×114 mm). Contemporary panelled calf , neatly rebacked, vermilion morocco label to the spine, raised bands. Slightly rubbed, corners restored, light browning, the folding maps with splits professionally restored. 3 folding maps and 19 engraved plates, 7 of them folding. Contemporary armorial bookplate of George Tollett, (1696-1727?), of Betley Hall, Staffordshire verso of the title page. Second edition, preferred over the first edition "because it has the chart of the western and southern oceans" (Hill). In 1699, Narbrough sailed onboard the Batchelour as part of a commission to find a western opening for the north-west passage and to explore the west coast of the Americas. This account is "of particular interest because of its description of Narbrough's passage in the Batchelour through the Strait of Magellan and into the South Pacific to Chile, which was much read by later navigators, [Narbrough being credited with] one of the first scientific studies of the indigenous population [and] inaugurating an era of research in southern South America that would last for a further two centuries" (Howgego). Also included is Abel Janzoon Tasman's account of his famous voyage of 1642, during which he discovered Tasmania and New Zealand and visited Tonga and Fiji. George Tollet was accountant general for Ireland, and was commissioner of the Navy at the time of Narbrough's voyage; he was a friend of both Samuel Pepys and Sir Isaac Newton. Hill 1476; Howgego.

Prima edizione di un rarissimo testo del principale architetto italiano del suo tempo. "Filippo Juvara o Juvarra (Messina, 7 marzo 1678 ? Madrid, 31 gennaio 1736), architetto e scenografo, fu uno dei massimi esponenti del Barocco ed operò per lunghi anni a Torino come architetto di casa Savoia. La formazione del giovane Juvarra avvenne nella città natale, dove studiò architettura sui trattati, e lavorò come scenografo e argentiere. La sua prima opera architettonica fu il completamento, nel 1703, della Chiesa di San Gregorio, oggi scomparsa per la quale progettò la sistemazione interna comprendente la realizzazione del coro e dell'altare maggiore. Si trasferì a Roma nel 1704, dove fu allievo di Carlo e Francesco Fontana ed ottenne un clamoroso successo al concorso di disegno architettonico dell'Accademia di San Luca, che segnò l'inizio della sua attività indipendente. Impiegato all'inizio come architetto teatrale dal cardinale Pietro Ottoboni (nipote di Alessandro VIII e uno dei più importanti mecenati dell'epoca), Juvarra in questo periodo progettò alcuni edifici a Lucca, come il Palazzo della Repubblica e alcune ville del contado (villa Garzoni a Collodi e villa Mansi a Segromigno). È datato al 1732 il progetto della cupola della Basilica di Sant'Andrea a Mantova, a completamento di una delle opere più importanti di Leon Battista Alberti, ed i lavori successivi furono a Caravaggio, Bergamo e Belluno. I suoi principali lavori furono a Torino al servizio dei Savoia, segnatamente il salone centrale di Stupinigi, la basilica di Superga, la facciata della chiesa di S. Cristina in piazza San Carlo, le chiese di S. Filippo Neri e del Carmine, Sant'Andrea a Chieri, Palazzo Madama, etc. Gli ultimi anni furono trascorsi a Madrid.

        Resp. Quæstio medica, C. Falconet, Præside. An fœtui sanguis maternus alimento ?

      Paris 1711 - In-4° broché, 4 pages. Rarissime thèse de doctorat de médecine du grand naturaliste et botaniste français. Antoine de Jussieu (6 juillet 1686, Lyon - 22 avril 1758, Paris) est un botaniste et médecin français. Il a, entre autres, expérimenté l'effet de certaines plantes contre les fièvres. Antoine, frère de Bernard et de Joseph, entreprend d'abord des études de théologie avant de découvrir la botanique. Il décide alors d'entreprendre des études de médecine à Montpellier. Sa passion le conduit à herboriser en Normandie et en Bretagne. Ce sont ces recherches qui le font remarquer par Guy Fagon, médecin du roi et surintendant du Jardin du roi. Fagon le recommande pour le poste de professeur de botanique du Jardin du roi, laissé vacant par la mort de Tournefort en 1709, dont Antoine était un grand admirateur. En 1718, il devient membre de la Royal Society. Antoine de Jussieu est admis à l'Académie des sciences en 1711. Pierre Baux deviendra son correspondant à l'Académie en 1757. En 1716, Fagon lui confie une mission en Espagne et au Portugal afin d'y recueillir des plantes. Antoine demandera à son frère Bernard de l'accompagner. À son retour, il fait paraître dans les Mémoires de l'Académie des sciences la relation de son voyage. Peu de temps après, il est chargé du cours de matière médicale à la Faculté de médecine de Paris. Son enseignement fera l'objet d'une publication posthume, en 1772, intitulé le Traité des vertus des plantes. C'est Antoine de Jussieu qui, en 1720, permet l'introduction du caféier dans les Antilles. Antoine de Jussieu crée une classe à part de plantes pour les champignons et les lichens dans un mémoire présenté en 1728 devant l'Académie royale des sciences. Parallèlement à son activité de botaniste, de Jussieu n'a jamais cessé d'exercer la médecine. Cette double spécialité lui permet d'expérimenter l'intérêt de nombreuses espèces comme l'écorce de quassia, une Simaroubacée, contre les fièvres. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
