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. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        TRIVIA: OR, THE ART OF WALKING THE STREETS OF LONDON

      London: Bernard Lintott, [1716]. First Edition. Hardcover. Clean copy recently and sympathetically rebacked with gilt decorations and the original burgundy gilt-lettered morocco spine label. A lovely copy with a distinguished provenance. Octavo (5-1/2" x 8-3/4") bound in full polished calf with gilt-ruled borders and gilt dentelles by F. Bedford. One of only 250 copies of the Large Paper Issue with the engraved headpiece and ornaments. Gay's best remembered poem and thought by many to be the greatest poem written on life in London in English literature. This copy has a most distinguished provenance with the bookplates of Helen Hay Whitney on the front free endpaper and those of Henry & Elizabeth Mary Collins and Robert Hoe on the front pastedown. On the front blank are several neat older notes establishing an earlier provenance including "Heber's 4th sale 1834. No. 889" and "From Dr. Bliss's Sale. 3 July 1858." In a very small hand might be a reference to the 1803 sale of the John Woodhouse library.

        KATTO?O?IA, das ist Kurtze Katzen-Historie. Darinnen ingemein von denen Katzen, auch insonderheit De Insolito Felino Lipsiensi Oder von einer ungewöhnlichen Katzen-Geburth, so zu Leipzig in dem 1713.ten Jahre geschehen, gehandelt wird

      Leipzig: Lanckisch's heirs, 1716. Hardcover. Near Fine. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. (3) ff, 96 pp, plus 5 leaves of engraved plates. Bound in 18th century speckled boards, extremities rubbed and contents somewhat toned, very good overall. First edition of this curious 'natural history of the cat', with a focus on the 'insolito felino lipsiensi', or 'wonderous cat-birth of Leipzig' in 1713. Alongside other descriptions of similar monstrous births, the body of the work is dedicated to a solemn treatment of the cat from a biological, natural historical, gastronomical (!), and medicinal point of view. Carpazov begins his treatise by noting that many unusual, wonderful, and even astonishing things come to pass which are very much against the order and laws of Nature, which no one can deny, because such things are attested to "day-to-day experience" as well as by physicians and historians. Carpazov proceeds to give a comprehensive account of wonderous births and events in and around Leipzig from 1700 to the present time, by way of example. He is concerned not only with human births (illustrated on figs. I & II), but also with those of animals: a cat-bat is illustrated on fig, IV, alongside a cat-pig. Such monstrosities appear to have occurred with remarkable frequency, nearly every other year by Carpazov's account. As advertised on the titlepage, Carpazov later gives a full description, and illustration, of the conjoined birth of six kittens which occurred in Leipzig in 1713 - an event which seems to have had a profound impact on observers. Quoting sources as diverse as the Koran (p. 22) and the Acta Eruditorium of 1686, Carpazov distinguishes six different types of cat (including the Sea-Cat, apparently found off the coast of North America, and the Flying Cat, founding only in the province of Casmir in Hungary), before launching into a discussion of the medicinal properties of feline anatomy. The brains are held to be poisonous, but the rest of the animal is certainly edible, as the French prove by eating them as a delicacy in winter (p. 35). Carpazov even discusses the introduction of housecats to America by the Spanish (pp 62-3) - before which eg Darien was apparently overrun with rats. OCLC locates just 1 American copy, at Yale. * OCLC 54232076.

        The True Nature of Imposture Fully Display'd in the Life of Mahomet [.]. The Sixth Edition, corrected.

      London, for E. Curll, J. Hooke and T. Caldecott, 1716. - 8vo. XII, (2), 286 pp. Contemp. calf. All edges sprinkled in red. 6th edition of this "often reprinted" (DNB) treatise, first published in 1697. Its scholarship depended in particular on Pococke. "Prideaux's literary reputation rests on his ‘Life of Mahomet’ (1697) [. of which] the story has been told that the bookseller to whom he offered the manuscript said he ‘could wish there were a little more humour in it.’ No sign of humour was ever shown by Prideaux, except in his proposal (26 Nov. 1715) for a hospital in each university, to be called ‘Drone Hall,’ for useless fellows and students. The ‘Life of Mahomet’ was in fact pointed as a polemical tract against the deists. [.] Some of its errors were noted by Sale in the discourse and notes to his translation of the ‘Koran,’ 1734" (ibid.). From the library of the British philosopher of religion, David Arthur Pailin (b. 1936), with his bookplate and notes laid in. Cf. DNB 46, 353.

        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

      Paris: chez Jean-Geoffroy Nyon, quay de Conti, au coin de la rue Guenegaud, au Nom de Jesus, Etienne Ganeau, rue Saint Jacques, aux Armes de Dombes, vis-à-vis la Fontaine de S. Severin, Jacque Quillau, imprimeur-juré-libraire, rue Galande, aux Armes de l'Université, , MDCCXVI [1716]. First Edition. 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 I 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.

        With the fur trade in crisis, La Compagnie du Castor shows signs of panic. Manuscript document, signed

      Montreal: August 27, 1716. Good/In 1715, the Compagnie du Castor, directed by Nicolas de la Lanouillier, retained the monopoly on the beaver trade in Canada. The company failed to honor its bills of exchange that year, and failed in all of its payments the following spring. The company scrambled to hire intermediary suppliers to deal with the rough trappers and traders at the bottom of the fur trade, but the middlemen refused to function without guarantees of payment. The present document is a declaration made by the company director in the presence of (no less than!) the acting governor of New France, Claude de Ramezay, that a certain supplier named Brire, "who does not know how to write," delivered 190 packs of dry beaver weighing 120 pounds each, and that it was duly noted in the Bureau of Beaver Inventory (Bureau de la Recette des Castors) in Montreal. The document is signed by Lanouillier, Ramezay, and several prominent merchants. There is a note of panic in the assembly of big shots to guarantee a transaction between the monopoly and an illiterate trader. By 1720, the Compagnie du Castor was amalgamated into the Compagnie des Indes. . 1 leaf folio (35cm); torn at bottom edge with loss of text at lower right of recto and damage to signatures at lower left of verso. Repaired with blank white paper, which has toned to tan. Main text and signatures still present and legible. Condition noted. Reference: Lande, Political Economy of New France, #214.

        Gazophylacium rerum naturalium e regno vegetabili, animali & minerali depromptarum...

      Leipzig and Frankfurt, Johann Herbort Kloss, 1716. Folio (386 x 264 mm). ff. 36, comprising title in red and black with engraved vignette, letterpress index leaf, and 34 engraved plates numbered (2-36, the title counting as plate one according to the index); a very good copy in contemporary sheep-backed speckled boards (skilful repair to hinges and edges worn). Second edition (first 1642). Basil Besler's Wunderkammer was inherited and added to by his nephew Michael Rupert, who here published a catalogue of his additions. This 'treasury of natural things from the vegetable, animal, and mineral kingdoms' exhibits such typical Wunderkammer contents as a unicorn horn, a hyoidal bone of a swan, a beak of a hornbill, a bird of paradise, a carved nautilus shell, an 'Arcimboldo' grotesque of shells, pyritised ammonites, asbestos, 'ruin' marble, engraved gems and antique coins, along with such unica as Johann Zizka's sword. Many rare plants and birds are figured, along with ethnographic objects such as a Brazilian Indian girdle made from the nuts of the Brazilian tree Cerbera ahovai. The image of this plate was used for the border of Valentini's Museum museorum, Frankfurt 1714. Michael Rupert (1607-61), a physician and pharmacist in Nuremberg, was a virtuoso scholar-collector, and also assembled an important collection of art and antiquities. These plates were first published in 1642, reissued in 1716, and again in 1733. The engraved title of the 1642 edition was replaced here by a letterpress title with engraved vignette. Apart from the index leaf there was no further text, and the plates were printed from the original coppers. Cobres p. 102 n 10; Nissen ZBI, 346.

        Pharmacopée universelle, contenant toutes les compositions de pharmacie qui sont en usage dans la médecine, tant en France que par toute l'Europe; leurs vertus, leurs doses, les manieres d'operer les plus simples & les meilleures. Plusieurs remarques....

      A Paris, Chez Laurent d'Houry, 1716. 1716 In-4° (250x180mm), pp. (16), 1100, (42) di indice bicolonne, (1) bianca con indice di alcuni medicamenti manoscritto in antico al recto. Legatura coeva p. pelle marrone con dorso a 5 nervi adorno di titolo in oro su tassello rosso e di fregi in oro entro scomparti. Frontespizio in rosso e in nero con piccolo giglio in xilografia. Dedica a stampa a Guy Crescent Fagon, primo medico regio. Testatine, finalini e capilettera istoriati incisi su legno. Annotazioni di un proprietario settecentesco alla prima c. bianca. Qualche lieve arrossatura e alone interno. Restauri professionalmente eseguiti al dorso. Buon esemplare. Seconda edizione di questa classica farmacopea, apparsa primamente nel 1697, forse la più conosciuta e rinomata del suo secolo, monumentale silloge di tutte le composizioni farmaceutiche vigenti in Francia ed in Europa fra il secolo decimosettimo e il decimottavo, con indicazione delle loro modalità di sommnistrazione, dei loro dosaggi, delle loro virtù terapeutiche. L'opera contiene inoltre svariati agganci occultistici ed "un grand nombre d'operations de chimie, des recettes pour la preparation des gelées, des condits et des conserves" (Dorbon-Ainé). Il Lemery (Rouen, 1645-Parigi, 1715), insegnante di chimica e farmacista a Parigi, dovette abbandonare la propria attività a causa della propria fede calvinista. Riparato in Inghilterra, si convertì convenientemente al cattolicesimo, cosa che gli consentì il ritorno a Parigi e la ripresa della precedente attività. La sua pratica farmaceutica gli permise di compiere significativi esperimenti chimici sulle basi dei sali e le proporzioni degli acidi riassunte nell'importante "Cours de Chimie" del 1675, in cui l'acume dello sperimentatore è bizzarramente frammisto a teorie mediate da Paracelso e a credenze alchemico-iatrochimiche affatto fantastiche. "Lémery was one of the most interesting men of his time. He condemned the alchemistic mysteries which still cluttered chemistry up, and was largely responsible for the love of chemical experiment which was so distinctive a character of the 18th century" (Duveen).
