        Pineapple, Tab IV from "Nurnberische Hesperides"

      Nuremburg:. 1708-1714.. First edition. A rare double-size folding plate of a pineapple from Volckamer's work on exotic citrus fruit, published from 1708 to 1714. Tab IV is one of 4 double-size plates of pineapples, the split pineapple appearing as a sun floating above a harbor scene with a dozen ships in the harbor. Slt. damage at fold with two small repaired pin holes (binding sewing). Copper engraving with later hand color, 13 1/4 x 14 7/8" with a 1/2" or more margin. Jos. A Montalegre, fecit. Margin added lower left. Volckamer's elegant prints of then-exotic citrus are pictured in a large scale, seeming to "float" in the skies above landscape scenes below. The locations are purported to be in Nuremberg and northern Italy, which is conceivable in this print - other views appear to be more tropical. Dunthorne # 323.

        Bishop Brunet's History of his Own Time. Volume I: From the Restoration of King Charles II to the Settlement of King William and Queen Mary at the Revolution. Volume II: From the Revolution to the Conclusion of the Treaty of Peace at Utrecht, in the Reign

      London: [Vol. 1:] Printed for Thomas Ward?1714; [Vol. II:] Printed for the Editor, by Joseph Downing?and Henry Woodfall, 1734 First edition. Contemporary paneled calf. As the two volumes were issued ten years apart, the design of the paneling is slightly different in each volume. Volume I is also slightly larger than Volume II. The bindings, however, are complimentary. . Two volumes, folio. List of subscribers in each volume. The verso of the title-page in Volume II bears an ink notation: "The Original Manuscript of both Volumes of this History will be deposited in the Cotton Library by G. Burnett [sic]." Joints cracking or starting to crack, but cords sound. Some scuffing and corner bumps. However, a very good, attractive set. Volume I with the armorial bookplate of Sir Richard Bedingfeld. Bishop Burnet (1643-1715) was a Scottish theologian and historian, educated at the University of Aberdeen. He was associated with the Whig party. His History of his Own Time or "secret history," as he called it, begins in 1683. He worked on it steadily until May, 1685, when he left England for the safety of the continent. He appears to have kept a running account of events in England during the reign of James II from The Hague, where he spent much of his exile. He returned to England after the revolution of 1688, when William and Mary took the throne. He worked on it intermittently from 1691 through 1703. In 1703, having read and admired Jacques-Auguste De Thou's Historia sui temporis, he decided to recast his history, making it less autobiographical and more impartial. He completed his recasting in 1704, and in 1705 resumed his History from when he left off. He worked on it until 1713 and spent the last two years of his life revising the final portions.Though it proved immediately controversial, Burnet's work remains an important sources for the period it deals with, and is admired for its detailed accounts of many events, and for Burnet's attempts to be accurate and fair.

Köpenhamn, dero königl. Majest. und Universit. privilegirten Buchdruckerey, (1714). 4:o. A4-X4,Y2. (=172 s.) Lagerfläckig och med enstaka småfläckar. Nött samtida marmorerat pappband. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Bibl. danica III, sp. 289f, med annan titel. Klemming, Sveriges krig, s. 284. Warmholtz 5765. Finns i två varianter samma år, denna utan årtal och en, troligen ett nytryck, med årtalet 1714 utsatt. En andra upplaga utkom 1724. Efter segern vid Gadebusch tog Magnus Stenbock i början av januari 1713 skydd med hela sin armé i fästningen Tönningen i det med svenskarna allierade Holstein-Gottorp, dit han välkomnades av kommendanten Zacharias Wolf. Tönningen belägrades genast av danskarna. Fästningen var inte på långa vägar förberedd för de ca 22000 människor och 1000 hästar som anlänt, och redan i maj måste Stenbock på grund av svält och sjukdomar kapitulera med hela sin armé; den s.k. "kapitulationen i Tönningen". Drygt ett halvår senare, den 10 februari 1714, måste även Wolf och hela fästningen kapitulera till danskarna. Den första delen av boken innehåller Zacharias Wolfs journal för perioden 1 januari till 26 maj 1713, då Stenbock kapitulerade. Den andra delen innehåller journalen som på Wolfs order sammanställdes av överauditörern Rubach om vad som hände under den resterande belägringen fram till 10 februari 1714. Wolf blev därefter dansk fånge till Nordiska krigets slut och efter krigsslutet överbefälhavare för den mycket förminskade holstein-gottorpska armén. Hans journal utgavs i Köpenhamn på kunglig befallning

Occasional pale brown flecks, not significantly affecting the plates. 138 (27 large, 111 half-page) etchings by Francis Barlow. First French Edition. Like the second English edition of 1687, this one combines the "Aesop" plates of the 1666 edition with the "Life of Aesop" plates engraved by Thomas Dudley after Francis Barlow's designs. Barlow was one of the first great English book illustrators. "...he is the first English artist to understand and practice modern interpretive illustration...He made his most significant personal contribution in so drawing and organizing his charcaters that they interact in a dynamic, expressive, and appropriate dramatic way that is at the heart of interpretive illustrations. Barlow's Aesop's fables is one of the chief English illustrated books...that makes him the father of English book illustration,: Hodnett, Francis Barlow. The English editions of Barlow's famous Aesop had a polglott text but Roger used L'Estrange's English text, translated by Roger into French. DG 2.1663. Bodemann 101. Brunet I,96. Cohen/Ricci 350.

First edition of Barrelier's chief botanical work, his famous "Hortus Mundi", for which he was supported financially by Gaston von Orléans but which he never finished due to illness. The text was destroyed in a fire after his death, but the numerous drawings survived and in 1714, ab. 40 years after Barrelier's death, Antoine de Jussieu published the work with the original plates under the title "Plantae per Galliam...".Jacques Barrelier (1606 - 1673) was a French Dominican, botanist and physician. He undertook extensive travels throughout France, Spain and Italy and spent 25 years in Rome, where he founded the botanical garden of the Saint-Xyste convent. During his time in Rome he worked on his magnum opus, which was later to become his "Plantae per Galliam...", for which he had an enormous amount of engravings made after his numerous drawings of plants. When he returned to Paris in 1672, he had stopped working on his great work, and in 1973 he died of an asthma-attack. The text for the work is destroyed in a fire, but the engravings are saved, which makes it possible for Antoine de Jussieu about 40 years later to publish the work the Barrelier never came to finish himself. Antoine de Jussieu (1686-1758) was out of a prominent French family distinguished for ist excellent botanists. He was a physician who also practiced medicine and devoted much of his time to treating the very poor. He studied at the University of Montpellier, and like Barrelier, he travelled through Spain and Portugal. In 1708 he went to Paris, where he succeeded J.P. de Tournefort at the Jardin des Plantes. His main works are his publication of Barrelier's "Plantae per Galliam..." and an edition of Tournefort's "Institutiones rei herbariae", printed in 1719 in three volumes.Barrelier has given name to the flower genus "Barleria", which covers roughly 300 species.Pritzel 423.
