ESTC T97362. Ventris (1645-1691) was a judge and politician. According to the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, early in his career he "enjoyed little success as a pleader" but "having begun noting cases while a student, he turned to reporting for his livelihood. The result was two volumes of reports, principally of arguments in king's bench and common pleas, published posthumously in 1696 and in many editions thereafter owing to their reputation for clarity, comprehensiveness, and accuracy....[These] Reports endure as among the most important written during the Restoration.

Lintott printed 2000 ordinary copies and a further 250 on fine paper, of which our copy is one. A Dublin edition and three other London editions appeared the same year. Fine. Hayward 142.

Dearing (ed), John Gay. Poetry and Prose 546. Fine ¶ Trivia (after the goddess of streets, not the modern meaning, of trifles or unimportant matters) takes Virgil's Georgics as an ironic model for a mock account of outdoor life in London to satirise the noise, stench and danger of contemporary life on its streets. "Though there had been imitations of Virgil's didactics, there had been nothing of the scope, nor any that had hit upon the real idea, of Trivia: to imitate in mock, not just one or another of Virgil's prescriptions, but the entire work." (Dearing). "Gay's satiric thrust is aimed both at idle aristocratic Londoners of the day, at one extreme of the class system, and at loud and aggressive labourers at the other. The playful irony that runs through the poem is intended to appeal to educated readers, who would appreciate the poet's witty allusions to the classics. Gay treats London's streets as a mock parallel to Virgil's farm in the Mantuan countryside, contrasting the contemporary foot-traveller in London, struggling against his surroundings, with Virgil's rural farmer in full accord with his."

        Histoire de la decouverte et de la conquete du Perou. Traduite de l'Espagnol...par S.D.C.

      La compagnie des libraires, 1716. Early French printing of this very successful Peruvian history, which went through numerous editions in languages including Spanish, Italian, Dutch, German, and English. Zárate arrived in Peru as part of the retinue of the first viceroy, and served there from 1543 until 1548. His work was first printed in its original Spanish in 1555, but did not appear in French until 1700; the present translation was done by S. de Broë, Seigneur de Citry et de la Guette. The first volume is illustrated with an oversized folding map and fourteen engraved plates, including the well known depiction of a nattily dressed European gentleman, reclining on a raft-like cushion, borne across a stream by two Indians. Married set: The two contemporary bindings are similar but not identical; both are of mottled leather, one more coarsely grained (and acid-etched) than the other, while one has floral and the other pomegranate motifs gilt-stamped in spine compartments. The match was made by a previous, Spanish-speaking collector, who has left pencilled notes in Spanish in both volumes.

        Comitatus principalis Tirolis in quo Episc. Tridentino et Brixensis.

      Homann Johann Baptist, Norimberga, 1716. Incisione su rame di dimensioni 47x56 cm. Buono, ordinari segni d'uso e del tempo. Carta raffigurante il territorio tirolese contenuta in "Grosser Atlas über die ganze Welt" dell'incisore ed editore Johann Baptist Homann (1663-1724). L'impianto rimane quello maginiano, da cui derivano le consuete inesattezze (una valle inesistente riportata a nord della Val di Non e un lago immaginario in Valsugana). Interessante, in basso a destra, l'elaborata composizione che accompagna il titolo: in essa in primo piano tre figure in costume d'epoca (un cacciatore, un minatore e un vendemmiatore), sullo sfondo una veduta di Covelo che si rifà probabilmente a quella realizzata da Bodenehr negli stessi anni. Scheda bibliografica tratta da "Il territorio trentino-tirolese nell'antica cartografia" di Gino Tomasi, scheda n. 54.

Il suffisait désormais d'ajuster les différents degrés à l'aide de trois clefs sur l'avant de la boîte, permettant l'élévation de la platine et sa rotation sur son propre axe. Seuls un ou deux exemplaires du microscope de Hertel ont été conservés. Harald Moe, Story of the Microscope, pp. 33 et suiv. À la suite : troisième édition des Nouvelles remarques (Neue Anmerckungen) de Leutmann, comprenant des corrections inédites. Ce livre rare, publié pour la première fois en 1719, rend compte des améliorations techniques dans meulage de lentilles destinées aux instruments optiques, microscopes, camera obscura et micromètres : il décrit également plusieurs objets de sa propre conception et fait part de théories diverses sur la vision et la perspective. Johann Georg Leutmann (1667-1736) fut professeur de mécanique et d'optique à l'Académie de Saint-Pétersbourg. Textes en caractères gothiques, titres en rouge et noir. Étiquette ex-libris du fabricant d'instrument optiques Albert Nachet. Oxydation habituelle pour les papiers allemands de l'époque. Une tache d'encre ancienne en pied d'un feuillet. Reliure modeste.

Popular garden book (and probably the most influential book in the history of pomology) by the leading French gardener of the seventeenth century. For more than 20 years, beginning in 1665, La Quintinie worked as gardener to Louis XIV, rising steadily with ever-expanding titles. The potager at Versailles, constructed from 1677 to 1683, is the most famous of the fruit and kitchen gardens he oversaw in all the royal houses to meet the needs of the court: asparagus in December and strawberries in April, as well as the King's favorite figs. This book, published posthumously by La Quintinie's son Michel, introduced his methods to a wide audience. Later editions, such as our copy, added to the directions for pruning and thinning out buds sections on melons and flowers, as well as advice on dealing with orange tress and La Quintinie's reflection on agriculture.

        Les Loix du Roy Minos, ou continuation de quatrième livre des avantures de Telemaque fils d'Ulisse...

      Amsterdam: Francois l'Honore, 1716. Duodecimo, contemporary vellum, titled in ink on the spine, ; a good copy. 'Nouvelle edition' (according to the title-page) of this imaginary voyage, an early work in the tradition of Fénélon's Avantures de Télémaque, and a continuation of its fourth book.Fénélon's Télémaque was an idealised account of the Roman Republic, and one of the most important books in the French classical tradition of the imaginary voyage. Although the authorship of Les Loix du Roy Minos remains unknown, it is one of the most inventive of the Fénélon imitations, a detailed investigation of the legal and political system of the utopian Minos: the focus on the courts and policing of the kingdom suggests an author associated with the legal system.The book is rare: OCLC notes a single copy (City University of New York Graduate Library). Old patch to lower cover.

        Regni Norvegiae Accurata Tabula.

      , 1716. [Nuremberg], c.1716. Handcoloured Original Engraving (copper engraving). 49,5 cm wide x 59 cm high. Excellent condition of this beautiful original 18th century map. Johann Baptist Homann (20 March 1664 ? 1 July 1724) was a German geographer and cartographer, who made maps of the Americas.nHomann was born in Oberkammlach near Kammlach in the Electorate of Bavaria. Although educated at a Jesuit school and preparing an ecclesiastical career, he eventually converted to Protestantism and from 1687 worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house.nnHomann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as recommendation for potential customers.nnIn 1716 Homann published his masterpiece Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt (Grand Atlas of all the World). Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, who also published Siebmachers Wappenbuch.nnHomann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, in business until 1848, known as "Homann Erben", "Homanniani Heredes", "Heritiers de Homann" abroad. (Wikipedia)

        Relation du voyage de la mer du Sud aux côtes du Chily et du Perou, fait pendant les années 1712, 1713 & 1714 : dediée à S.A.R. Monseigneur le Duc D'Orleans, Regent du Royaume / par M. Frézier, ingenieur ordinaire du roy ; ouvrage enrichi de quantité de planches en taille-douce.

      First Edition Paris chez Jean-Geoffroy Nyon, quay de Conti, au coin de la rue Guenegaud, au Nom de Jesus, Etienne Ganeau, rue Saint Jacques, aux Arm MDCCXVI [1716] 4to: xiv,298,[2]pp, with 35 (of 37) maps, plans and plates (18 of which are folding); ornamental engraved vignettes, and woodcut musical notation in the text (never bound in were the map of Détroit de le Maire, no. v, and the plate of Indiens en habits simples, no. ix); plate xvi was bound in twice). Contemporary calf, spine richly gilt in six compartments, brown leather lettering piece gilt, "Caissotti" in gilt script on upper board, all edges stained red, marbled end papers, red silk page marker. An exceptional, wide-margined copy, text, maps and plates fresh and clean, marred only by a stain in the gutter of first three leaves. Provenance: copper-engraved bookplate, "Il Cittadino / Carlo Giac. Caissotti." Sabin 25924. Borba de Moraes 328. Hill, p. 115. Leclerc 1736. Palau 94964. Gibson's Library, p. 128. First Edition of this classic in the literature of South American voyages of exploration. Frézier set sail in 1712 with a French commission to assess the strength of Spanish settlements on the Pacific coast and to revise existing charts. According to Hill, Frezier "brought back information of considerable geographical and scientific value" to later navigators, and his account is today appreciated for its keen observations of the customs, commerce, and natural history?including the cotton and strawberry plants?of Chile, Peru and Tierra del Fuego. (It's interesting to note that Frezier's surname was itself derived from fraise, the French for strawberry.) The chapters on Indian and Creole life include descriptions of costume and architecture, as well as musical instruments. The folding plans of cities visited are often enhanced by panoramic views, as in the case of Callao, Concepción, Valparaíso, La Serena, Salvador de Bahía, and Angra (Azores). Amongst the most important plates are the general map of the expedition, the Strait of Lemaire, Valdivia, Bahía de an Vicente, Santiago de Chile, Lima and Bahía de Todos los Santos. An immediate success, the work was soon translated into English and German and republished several times in the eighteenth century.
