Wien, o. Dr., [1713-]1719.. Mit gest. Titel, typographischem Privileg und 28 numerierten Kupfertafeln. Mamorierter Interimspappband der Zeit. Qu.-Folio (256:370 mm).. Erste Ausgabe des prächtigen Ansichtenwerkes mit einer Gesamtansicht und 27 Detailansichten (Plätze, Straßen u. Gebäude) von Wien, diese jeweils mit deutscher und französischer Legende. Vollständiges Exemplar im zeitgenössischen Einband aus prominentem Vorbesitz. - Nach Vorzeichnungen Fischer von Erlachs gestochen von J. A. Delsenbach, einem der "erfolgreichsten dt. Stecher des 18. Jh. [und] ein charakteristischer Vertreter des sog. Wiener Reichsstils" (AKL). Das von F. C. Graf Schönborn gezeichnete Druckprivileg der vorliegenden ersten Ausgabe datiert von 1719, mit der Arbeit an den hier veröffentlichten Ansichten wurde lt. AKL bereits 1713 begonnen.

Der Erstbesitzer Bräunert notierte auf die Titelrückseite eine hochinteressante, kommentierte Bibliographie aller bis dahin erschienenen Wiener Ansichtenwerke, deren Niederschrift gerade aus der Zeit vor der Fertigstellung der ersten abgeschlossenen Folge der Ansichten Schütz/Zieglers datieren muß, welche 1779 begonnen wurde aber erst 1784 erschienen ist: "Die neuesten und … [Click Below for Full Description]

Fenelon, Francois de Salignac de la Motte:
La Haga (Den Haag), Adrian Moetjens, 1713.. 2 n.n. + 558 S. Priv. Pp. der Zeit.. Mit einer niederländ. Vorrede. In span. Sprache. Mit der gefalteten Karte (m. franz. Bezeichnungen) und 12 z. gr. Teil altkolorierten Kupferstichen (R. du Val, Fonbonne). Titel in rot und schwarz gedruckt, mit Druckervignette. - Seiten leicht gebräunt, tlw. geringfügig fleckig, Ebd. m. Gbrsp., m. kl. oberflächl. Fehlstelle im Einbandpapier, Karte m. kl. Einriss. - Für seinen fürstlichen Zögling - Duc de Bourgogne, Enkel Ludwig XIV. - schrieb Fenelon (wie schon so häufig Fürstenerzieher vor ihm, z. B. Bossuet) mehrere unterhaltende und zugleich belehrende Werke: zunächst eine Sammlung von Fabeln, sodann die Aventures d'Astinoüs (=die Abenteuer A.s) und die Dialogues de morts (=Totendialoge), vor allem aber den umfänglichen, 1694-96 verfassten Abenteuer-, Reise- und Bildungsroman Les Aventures de Telemaque, fils d'Ulysse (1733 in Deutsch erschienen als Die seltsamen Begebenheiten des Telemach). In diesem pseudo-historischen und zugleich utopischen Roman führt der Autor den jungen Sohn des Odysseus Telemaque und dessen Lehrer Mentor (in dem sich Minerva verbirgt und der sichtlich Sprachrohr Fenelons ist) durch diverse antike Staaten, die meist durch Schuld ihrer von Schmeichlern und falschen Ratgebern umgebenen Herrscher ähnliche Probleme haben wie das in Kriege verstrickte und verarmende Frankreich der 1690er Jahre. Er zeigt aber an einem Paradefall, wie sich diese Probleme dank der Ratschläge Mentors lösen lassen durch friedlichen Ausgleich mit den Nachbarn und durch Wachstum stimulierende Refor … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Einband - Missale romanum].
Venedig, Nicolo Pezzana, 1713.. (36), 472, XCII SS. Durchgehend in rot und schwarz gedruckt. Mit gest. Titelvignette und 3 ganzs. Textkupfern (Suor Isabella Piccini sc.) sowie zahlreichen Holzschnittinitialen und gedruckten Noten. Goldgepr. Kalbslederband der Zeit über Holzdeckeln. Schließen fehlen. 4 Lesebändchen. Kl.-Folio.. Seltenes, schön illustriertes Missale des Spätbarock mit reizvollen Kupfern der venezianischen Kupferstecherin Isabella Piccina, Tochter und Schülerin des Giacomo Piccini und Nonne im Convento di Sta. Croce in Venedig (vgl. Thieme/B. 26, 581). - 5 Bll. etwas fingerfleckig (dav. 2 stärker) und mit restaurierten Wurmspuren im w. Rand, sonst innen weitestgehend sauber. Der Einband im "a la fanfare"-Stil mit Mosaikbändern ist ein schönes Beispiel für das Wiederaufleben des nach der Mitte des 16. Jahrhunderts geprägten Fanfarestils im 18. Jahrhundert. Kennzeichnend ist neben der symmetrischen Anordnung das Rahmengerüst mit rund und eckig ausgeführten Kartuschen und verschlungenem verbindenden Bandwerk sowie dichtem Füllwerk in der Form von Blattvoluten und Blüten. "Es handelt sich um einen sehr arbeitsaufwendigen Stil, da geometrische Präzision des Entwurfes sowie Formenreichtum und Kleinteiligkeit der Stempel größte Sorgfalt vom Vergolder verlangten" (Kat. Slg. Schäfer, 65). Die Aufwendigkeit des vorliegenden Einbands wird dadurch noch erhöht, daß die Rahmenbänder im Mosaikstil durch Einlegearbeit dunklerer Lederpartien ausgeführt sind. Wie meist wird hier "die Kontur der Intarsie mit einer Filete betont. Die Technik der 'reliures mosaiques' oder 'a compa … [Click Below for Full Description]

Krafft, Abraham Friedrich.
Nürnberg, Johann Ludwig Buggel, 1713.. 18x11,5 cm. (8) Bl., 630 S., (13) Bl. Index. Mit gest. doppelblattgr. Frontispiz von Reiff und doppelblattgr. Titel. Gesprenkelter Pp.-Bd. der Zeit mit Papierrückenschild.. Horn/Schenkling 12340. - Lindner Bibliographie der deutschen ... Jagdliteratur 11.1171.02. - Steffi Windelen, Mäuse, Maden, Maulwürfe. Zur Thematisierung von Ungeziefer im 18. Jhdt. (Diss. 2010, Online Version). - Ein höchst interessantes Werk, das auch "für die Geschichte der Jagdtechnik wegen der Fülle des zusammengetragenen ... Materials von Interesse ist" (Kurt Lindner). - Im 18 Jhdt. herrschte noch weitgehend die Ansicht vor, dass sich ein jedes Tier irgendwie für den Menschen verwenden liesse. Mit seinem Werk - wovon 1712 noch ein unabhängiger zweiter Teil erschien - versuchte Krafft zwar vorrangig, nützliche Anleitungen zur Bekämpfung von (vermeintlich) schädlichen Tieren zu geben, er vergisst dabei aber nicht, auch an den möglichen Nutzen all der Tiere zu erinnern. Als nützlich gelten Tiere dem Verfasser dann, wenn sich aus ihnen ein wirtschaftlicher Vorteil ziehen lässt. Das hier gegenüber der Erstauflage von 1709 in etwas veränderter zweiter Auflage vorliegende Buch handelt u.a. auch von den Füchsen und Wölfen, beschreibt die Eigenschaften des Dachses, geht auf diverse Raubwildarten ein, beschreibt Biber und Fischotter sowie die Wasser- und Raubvögel und geht auch auf den Tier- und Vogelfang ein. - (Ecken etwas bestossen, Kanten berieben). - Unbeschnitten.

EXTREMELY ATTRACTIVE 19TH CENTURY FRENCH RED MOROCCO, HANDSOMELY GILT, BY HARDY (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with gilt French fillet border, the Villeneuve coat of arms at center, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with central floral sprig surrounded by small tools and with volute cornerpieces, inner gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Engraved frontispiece portraits of Erasmus, Thomas More, and Holbein, extra engraved allegorical title page, six engraved folding plates, and 75 illustrations in the text, all after Holbein.

Probably washed at the time of binding (in keeping with the general preference of serious 19th century bibliophiles), one plate and one leaf with neatly repaired tears, another leaf with restored margin, occasional faint offsetting, other trivial imperfections, but an excellent copy, the text and plates especially clean and smooth, and the lovely binding very lustrous and entirely unworn. This is a beautifully bound copy of a French translation of Erasmus' classic satire "Moriae Encomium" ("In Praise of Folly"), issued originally in 1511.

[Kennett, White]:
London: Printed for J. Churchill, 1713.. [2],iii,xvi,3-275,[224]pp. Quarto signed in 2s. Expertly bound to style in half russia over period marbled boards, spine gilt, morocco label. Very good. Provenance: New-York Historical Society (inked stamps). The "earliest exclusively American catalogue" (Church): one of only 250 copies printed. "White Kennett, Bishop of Peterborough, gave his extensive collection of Americana to the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts in 1712, with the intention that the gift should be accompanied by a printed catalogue of the collection. This wish was thwarted for a while by the decision to have Robert Watts compile what became an extensive and essential index of 223pp. Kennett had in the meantime continued his collecting at a pace which necessitated the inclusion of 55-page appendix and the catalogue was finally published in 1713. The result is the best catalogue of books relating to America extant, [arranged in chronological order], the titles being copied at full length with the greatest exactness, together with the name of the printer, and the number of pages in each volume. It is rich in English tracts relating to New England" - Rich. Pinelo's EPITOME DE LA BIBLIOTECA ORIENTAL I OCCIDENTAL (1629) includes a listing of books of Indian and Asian as well as American interest, but Kennett's is the first printed catalogue devoted exclusively to books relating to America. An account of the library is given in MASSACHUSETTS HISTORICAL SOCIETY PROCEEDINGS, Vol. 20 (1883). Despite Kennett's stated wish that the books … [Click Below for Full Description]

BESLER, Basil (1561-1629)
Eichstatt: 1713, 3rd edition. Hand-coloured engraving. 21 x 17 1/2 inches. Basil Besler published "Hortus Eystettensis", the earliest large folio botanical, at Eichstatt near Nuremburg, in 1613. He worked on the drawings for the 374 copper engravings over a period of sixteen years using the plants in the garden of Bishop Johann Conrad von Gemmingen, his patron. Depicted in this florilegium were flowers, herbs, vegetables and newly discovered plants such as tobacco and peppers. Besler was, in modern terms, a botanist and horticulturalist, and he was familiar with real and alleged medicinal properties of various plants. Besler had the good fortune to live at a time when exotic plants were being shipped to Europe from all over the world. The garden that he organized and illustrated for his patron was both ornamental and experimental, and the large book he had engraved after his drawings was unique. The prints, made by a team of master engravers, are strong and exquisitely done.

First edition. 12mo. viii, 232 pp. Contemporary green-dyed vellum with morocco lettering piece, covers slightly warped, joints partly cracked, light dampstain in lower outer corner of first four leaves, title soiled, with repairs in blank gutter . First edition of an allegorical fairy tale set in an enchanted pre-Roman Italy, intended, naturally, for the moral instruction of young minds. It includes a key to the sometimes wonderfully fanciful names of the characters (e.g., "Homotille," Grilison," "Ponirge¢" etc.), each of which represents a particular vice or virtue.€ OCLC locates a few copies in Europe, but none in North America. The book was collected and reprinted later by Charles-Joseph de Mayer in the famous LE CABINET DES FEES (Amsterdam, 1785 -1789), but also in the earlier collection of LE CABINET DES FEES (Amsterdam, Estienne Roger, 1717) where, apparently, it was attributed to the Comtesse de Murat (1670-1716).

[RÉMOND].
The main interest of father and son Rémond is the metamorphosis of butterflies. The beautifully drawn watercolour drawings of caterpillars are of a superb quality and the animals are drawn with painstaking precision. The work is very much in the tradition of Maria Sibylla Merian who at the beginning of the same century was fascinated by the same subject and published in 1713-1717 a 3 volumes pioneering work 'Der rupsen begin?' We presume that the watercolours and the extensive notes to these plates are by Louis Rémond and the translation of Roesel von Rosenhof by his son Maurice. The whole project was certainly intended to be published. In a draft (May 1808) of a letter of Maurice Rémond to A.J.P. Kleemann (no. 14), the son of C.F. Kleemann and the son-in-law of Roesel von Rosenhof, Rémond informs him of his intention to publish Roesel's work together with his own observations. "Mes compatriotes les français ne connaissent guère de cet ouvrage que la beauté des figures et ignorent les détails intéressantes que renferme le texte, votre langue étant peu répandu en France; c'est ce qui m'a fait former le projet d'en donner une traduction que l'accompagnerai de mes propres observations". He continues asking him details of his father's life which he wants to incorporate in his work. In a reply dated 30 May 1808 Kleeman wishes him success with his project "Je souhaite la plus heureuse réussite de votre projet louable', and adds several pages of text concerning the life of his father C.F. Kleemann. The work of De Geer (no. 3) and Reaumur (no. 4) were studied in detail, notes and d … [Click Below for Full Description]

Van Der Aa, Pierre
Leyden, 1713. First edition. Rare and important original color map of southeast North America, from Maryland and Illinois in the north (including Philadelphia) to Mexico in the south and the Bahamas in the east. Noted for its great detail, with Native American villages, mountains and rivers, and English, French and Spanish settlements. With the Mississippi River very clearly defined, but depicted too far to the west; Florida with a slightly blunted peninsula, with St. Augustine named. Title cartouche embellished with Native American figures, a lion, deer and figures in canoes. From 'Le Nouveau Theatre du Monde', and based on Delisle's important Carte du Mexique de la Floride of 1703. Cumming (155) lists its title as "La Florida(sic)...." and dates it 1713. 11 3/4 x 9". Matted and framed. A slightly light impression on the female Native American figure. With old color, possibly early. Without fold marks, very good. Cumming, W.P. (SE) 155.

(MEIBOM, Anna.) Relation veritable de l'horrible et detestable assassinat commis en la personne de mr.
Utrecht, la veuve Voskuyl, 1713. 8:o. (2),+ 212 s. Välbevarat något senare hfrbd, rikt guldornerad rygg med röd titeletikett, röda snitt. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek, med Carl Jedvard Bondes exlibris. Författarinnan Anna Meibom var svägerska till den mördade Johan (Hans) von Schade, diplomat i polsk tjänst. Johan (eller Hans) von Schade (1671-1703) var född i Danmark men sedan 1698 i polsk tjänst och sedan år 1700 polsk resident i Köpenhamn. Han kom dock snabbt i konflikt med många och framförallt med den danska ministern Christian von Plessen. Efter svåra motgångar fick Schade efter egen ansökan slutligen avsked 1703, och en fransman Antoine Moreau utsågs till hans efterträdare. Innan Schade hunnit lämna Köpenhamn dog dock Moreau plötsligt. Schade skyndade sig då till dennes hus för att försegla hemliga papper, men där befann sig redan Plessens folk. En ordstrid uppkom och slutade med att kammarrådet Burchard v. Suhm stack ned Schade med sin värja. Han dog två dagar senare av såret. Ett antal oklarheter kring mordet fanns och Anna Meibom anklagar här i "Relation veritable", utgiven tio år senare, Plessen för en mordkomplott planerad av illvilja och ondska, och att denne senare även förföljt den stackars änkan, d.v.s. författarinnans syster

The present rebuttal is often assigned to Richard Bentley, although ESTC considers that an erroneous attribution.

Si Clío alaba con sus versos a personajes históricos de todos los tiempos, Polimnia es el eco del poema moral, mientras que Melpómene ejerce de altavoz de la poesía fúnebre mediante la presentación de exequias o epitafios. Erato, la cuarta Musa, encarna la temática amorosa: es precisamente en este apartado donde encontramos a Lisi, supuesta amante del poeta. Por último, Terpsícore y Talía se centran en otra de las conocidas facetas del autor, el poema satírico-burlesco.
