The 'genuine edition' - the rare first edition of Boerhaave's collection of prescriptions ! - - Herman Boerhaave (1768-1738) "is remarkably moderate in the preface to his own edition that he wrote on 1 February 1719, and this moderation is in contrast to his sharp criticism of the pirated editions. In this preface he observes that a 'vir eruditus' in London had allowed Boerhaave's own collection of prescriptions to be published against his will and that many harmful errors had crept in. Therefore he felt obliged to publish the work himself with the necessary corrections and additions: 'so prompted, I revised and corrected it, and made some additions: use it therefore and be relieved from copying the work'. - - In order to guarantee the authenticity of the book he made the publisher Severinus sign personally every copy. The small book ran to 259 pages and was provided with an extensive index. It was eagerly received. Boerhaave himself published new editions in 1721 and in 1727, and in other countries it was frequently reprinted, even after Boerhaave's death. The last edition appeared in 1776." G.A. Lindeboom, 2nd. Ed., pp.79-80 - - "Preface dated February 18, 1719. Index of Samuel DuRy, doctor of medicine and practising physician.

      Printed & Sold by Tho: Bowles next to the Chapter-house St. Paul?Äôs Church Yard; Sold by John Bowles at the Black Horse in Cornhill, London, 1719 - A city of meat eaters 610 by 1475mm (24 by 58 inches). Engraved map on three sheets, joined, parishes picked out in outline colour, extending north to south from Clerkenwell to Southwark, and west to east from Buckingham House to Stepney, list of streets and squares to left and right margins, trimmed to neatline, a few nicks and tears and some minor loss, skilfully repaired. Howgego 63 (1). Large and detailed plan of London.The map bears grid lines for ease of reference, the major public buildings such as Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament, St Paul's Cathedral, Buckingham House, and the Tower of London are represented as birds-eye views. The text upon the map gives the extent of London as "7500 Geometric paces, that is above 7 English Miles and a half" from west to east and "2500 paces, or 2 miles and a half" from north to south. There are about 5000 streets. The number of houses is calculated to be 110,000. The population is guessed at "by what is eaten": "There were in one Year, when it was less by two thirds [ie. in the mid seventeenth century], 67500 Beefs, 10 times as many Sheep, Besides Poultry &c. also every Year is brought into the River 400,000 at least Charldon of Coales". Also the number of "Buryings" was said to number 26,000 per year. The amount of ale and beer produced is said to be 20,000 barrels. Bowles acknowledges the source of these numbers as Sir William Petty (1623-1687), who through some crude statistical analysis calculated the population in the mid-seventeenth century. He estimated that there were 115,846 families and 695,076 souls; more than Paris, Rome, Rouen or Amsterdam, which were said to have some 500,000 souls. To the left of the text is a list of watermen and hackney carriage rates.Scale: 11 inches to 1 statute mile.

        Carte de la Nouvelle France, ou se voit le cours des Grandes Rivieres de S. Laurens & de Mississipi aujour d'hui S. Louis, Aux Environs desquelles se trouvent les Etats, Pays, Nations, Peuples &c

      Guedeville, Paris 1719 - The map is from the " Atlas Historique." This map is Chatelain's reduced version of N. De Fer's very important four-sheet map of 1718. It is one of the most informative map of French possessions in North America in the early 18th century. The map has an Inset plan and view of Quebec which is enclosed in an extremely decorative cartouche. At the top left of the map is large scale map of the Mississippi Delta and Mobile Bay. The Louisiana and Mississippi valley areas were based on De l'Isle's manuscript map of 1701. The geography of New England and Eastern Canada originates with Franquelin. The map is filled with wildlife, scenes and views of Indians hunting and in their villages, and the oceans are embellished with many ships, canoes and sea monsters. The map was issued to promote the recently established 'Compagnie Francoise Occident', which was created to repay the debt of Louix XIV and offered inducements to encourage settlement in Louisiana., Size : 435x500 (mm), 17.125x19.625 (Inches), Hand Colored, 0 Very Good, upper margin extended.

        Carte du Canada ou de la Nouvelle France, & des Découvertes qui y ont été faites

      Chez L'Honoré & Châtelain, Amsterdam 1719 - An important and fascinating map of Canada from Châtelain's celebrated 'Atlas Historique' This very finely engraved and epistemologically interesting map was one of the most important maps of Canada printed during its time, and was included in Châtelain's Atlas Historique. It is largely derived from Guillaume de L'Isle's famous 1703 map of Canada, and the geography of the Great Lakes, eastern Canada and New England is quite accurate for the time. The numerous trading posts and missions of New France and the major towns of the adjacent British colonies are labeled. The area around Hudson's Bay is shown to be inhabited by native tribes referred to as the "Christinaux or Kilistinons," while Labrador is home to the "Eskimaux." Interestingly, the map features a number of notes specifically referring to the names of explorers and the dates in which they discovered certain places, such as the reference to 'Nouveau Danemarc', discovered by the Danish explorer Jan Munk in 1619. The depiction of the upper Mississippi and Ohio basins is also quite detailed, noting the position of the French fort of 'St. Louis' or 'Crèvecouer' near the present-day site of Peoria, Illinois. Perhaps the most fascinating aspect of the map is its portrayal of the "Rivière Longue," one of the most sensational and enduring cartographic misconceptions ever devised. This imaginary river was reported to flow from the 'Pays des Gnacsitares' in the far west, promising the best route through the interior of the continent, supposedly placing one within close reach of the Pacific Ocean. It is a product of the imagination of the Baron Lahontan, an entertaining and roguish French adventurer, whose best-selling travel narrative Nouveaux voyages dans l'Amérique septentrionale (1703) convinced many of the world's greatest intellects of the existence of this mythical waterway. The text, 'Remarque Historique' that fills the northwestern part of the map describes the history of New France from the days of Jacques Cartier to contemporary times. Kershaw, Early Printed Maps of Canada II:334, plate 215. Copper-engraved map, in excellent condition. Sheet size: 18 x 21 5/8 inches.

        South America: With federal remarks. Dedicated to the Earl of Sunderland

      London 1719 - Herman Moll (1654-1732) &#147;South America: With federal remarks. Dedicated to the Earl of Sunderland.&#148; From The World described; or a New and Correct Sett of Maps. London, 1719 Engraving with original hand color Sheet size: 40 1/2" x 25"; 30" x 46 ¼" framed Herman Moll came to England from the Netherlands shortly after 1680 and became one of the most prolific cartographers of the first part of the eighteenth century. Early in his career, he used his skills as an engraver to obtain work from the cartographer Moses Pitt, among others. He had a knack for making interesting friends and involving himself in unusual projects, as he provided maps for Daniel Defoe&#146;s Robinson Crusoe and Jonathan Swift&#146;s Gulliver&#146;s Travels. In 1689 he established his own London shop, and maps of a uniquely Moll character began to appear during Queen Anne&#146;s reign. His individual style of mapmaking grew increasingly more distinct as his career progressed. Moll&#146;s maps are noted for their elaborate design, clarity of lettering and numerous legends on the map&#146;s face. These lengthy writings give historical information about the geography, inhabitants, and overall particulars of the area shown. His impressive body of maps and atlases constitute some of the finest examples of early British cartography and summation of British knowledge at the time. Each is beautifully rendered and has great historical significance. Very few English mapmakers had made a name for themselves in the 16th and 17th centuries, because Dutch cartographers were generally so far ahead of their competition that challenging them seemed an insurmountable task. In the early 18th century, however, British cartography began a resurgence and Britain eventually displaced Holland as the most advanced map-producing nation. This is due in large measure to Britain&#146;s role in colonization, which by this time far superseded that of the Dutch and most other nations. With government surveyors working to chart colonies and potential colonies in distant lands, the British cartographers had a degree of access to geographical information that their foreign competitors did not. Another factor in the revival of British cartography was the immigration of Dutch mapmakers like Hermann Moll, who gained his expertise in his native country, and then applied that knowledge and experience to the sophisticated geographical information he was now privy to in Britain. With respect to accuracy and beauty, his maps were among the most impressive to be produced in the early 18th century, during the dynamic era of the British Enlightenment, and served as models for his fellow cartographers in Britain. In the early 1700&#146;s, Herman Moll along with a group of peers decided to explore an idea they called the South Sea development. What they envisioned was an expansion of British trade to South America as well as the eastern Pacific Ocean. Throughout the years Moll printed several maps that publicized the location, which in part added to the interest in the area. In 1719, he produced this map of South America with each country carefully outlined and distinguished by various colors. In addition, Moll included certain annotations around the coast of the continent. Included within the map is an interesting detail located in the bottom left corner. It is a depiction of a location called Potosi, a region that received a wonderful gift from nature: an incredible amount of silver located in a moderate sized mountain in what we now call southern Bolivia. Having only mined the silver when it was necessary, it came as a shock to the natives when the Spanish colonizers began to ravage the resources. By the middle of the 1500s, the silver became a magnet for settlers looking for money. Potosi, a word meaning high place, became synonymous with wealth and splendor in the modern world. As a result, Hermann Moll included the location on his map hoping to entice the public into the interest in South America.

Vs., erstes Frontispiz fehlt, Papier tlw. gebräunt, tlw. etw. stockfl. Sinold: Philipp Balthasar S. gen. v. Schütz, entstammte dem alten berühmten Adelsgeschlechte der Sinolde von Schütz und wurde am 5. Mai 1657 auf dem hessisch-darmstädtischen Schlosse Königsberg bei Gießen geboren, wo sein Vater damals hessischer Oberamtmann war, der nachmals als lüneburgischer Minister und Kanzler starb (s. o.). Der Sohn erhielt seine Vorbildung auf dem Gymnasium zu Weißenfels, das damals der Rector Christian Weise leitete, und studirte dann in Jena die Rechte. Darauf führte ihn eine längere Reise durch Italien, und hier trat er zu Florenz in die Gardecavallerie des Herzogs von Tosccma ein, in der er fast zwei Jahre Kriegsdienste that. Heimgekehrt nach Deutschland, weilte er mehrere Jahre in Leipzig als Privatgelehrter und gab hier eine Zeitschrift ?Die europäische Fama? (1704) heraus, in der er die Politik vom christlichen Standpunkte aus beleuchtete. Fortsetzungen dieser Zeitschrift von Anderen erschienen später als ?Neue europäische Fama? (Leipzig 1735 ff.) und ?Neueste europäische Fama? (Gotha 1760 ff.). Im Jahre 1704 lieferte er auch die erste Ausgabe des bekannten ?Zeitungs-Lexikons?, das später von Hübner in Hamburg, von Jäger, Mannert u. A. vielfach umgearbeitet worden ist. In demselben Jahre war S. mit dem Titel eines Raths nach Köstritz berufen worden als Haushofmeister des jungen Grafen von Reuß-Köstritz und als Lehendirector für sämmtliche reußische Lande; doch schon im folgenden Jahre trat er als Hofmeister in die Dienste der verwittweten Herzogin von Sachsen-Merseburg zu Forst in der Lausitz, und blieb hier bis 1711. Dann nahm er eine Stelle als Regierungsrath bei dem Herzoge Karl von Württemberg-Oels zu Bernstadt in Schlesien an und schrieb während seiner hiesigen Amtsthätigkeit unter dem Namen Irenicus Ehrenkron seine noch jetzt geschätzte ?Schlesische Kirchenhistorie? (II, 1715). Im Jahre 1718 berief ihn der Graf von Hohenlohe-Pfedelbach zum Geheimrath und Präsidenten aller seiner Collegien nach Pfedelbach bei Oehringen im Württembergischen, von wo er 1727 als gräflich Solms?scher Geheimrath nach Laubach kam. In diesem Amte verblieb er 15 Jahre lang, bis er als 85jähriger Greis am 6. März 1742 von dieser Erde schied. S. war auch Mitglied der fruchtbringenden Gesellschaft, in der er den Namen ?Faramond? führte. Als solches hat er eine ganze Reihe satyrischer Schriften verfaßt, in denen er mit heiligem Ernste die Thorheiten seiner Zeitgenossen geißelte. Bedeutender ist er als erbaulicher Schriftsteller, und als solcher führte er den Namen Amadeus Creutzberg. Von seinen zwölf Erbauungsschriften haben besonders die ?Gottseligen Betrachtungen auf alle Tage des ganzen Jahrs? (1729), ein Buch, das dem Könige Friedrich Wilhelm I. von Preußen zur täglichen Lectüre diente, ihren Werth bis in die Neuzeit hinein [401] behauptet und sind 1856 abermals neu herausgegeben worden. Wie in diesen Erbauungsschriften, so offenbart sich auch in den poetischen Arbeiten Sinold?s der Einfluß Spener?s, und man zählt deshalb S. gern dem pietistischen Dichterkreise zu. Eine Sammlung von 143 seiner Lieder gab er während seiner Amtsthätigkeit in Pfedelbach heraus unter dem Titel ?Amadei Creutzbergs geistliche und andere erbauliche Poesien, Lieder, Sonette und Epigrammata? (1720); acht davon erlangten durch Aufnahme in Gesangbücher weitere Verbreitung. (ADB) 1100 gr. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Annales sex regum Angliae.

      Oxonii Oxford: e Theatro Sheldoniano 1719 - 8vo. (26), 347, (1, 32 index followed by postscript) pp. Late 18th century dark green straight grain morocco, spine with raised bands, gilt lettered to two panels with ornate decoration to the other compartments, gilt tooled rosettes with flower and leaf stems to the corners of each board, the ciphered initials "P.S." to the upper cover and the motto "Vincit et Patitur" to the lower board in gilt, gilt inner dentelles, mustard coloured endpapers, all edges gilt. Frontispiece portrait. Binding slightly rubbed, some very light spotting to the front and rear leaves, else a most handsome copy. The binding has sometime been attributed to the noted binder Roger Payne, his name pencilled on one of the front endpapers though nowhere is the binding signed. Certainly the binding has the appearance of his work and, specifically, the cornerpieces are very reminiscent of devices that he used.Nicholas Trivet (c.1257 &#150; c.1334) was a Dominican friar and scholar. Manuscripts exist of various works by him, though this is one of the few that subsequently ever made it into print. The work chronicles the history of the early Plantagenet dynasty, from King Stephen to Edward I. This edition is edited by Anthony Hall, an Oxford scholar who had previously edited a 1709 edition of the work of the English antiquarian John Leland "Commentarii de Scriptoribus Britannicis". His postscript at the rear of the volume indicates his intention to publish the continuation of the manuscript from which he was working, the "Annalium Continuatio" appeared 3 years later.

Covers with elaborated gilt rules; All edges gilt; marbled endpapers. Magnificent rare set of Montfaucon&#146;s landmark work on classical archaeology, complete with all plates according to Brunet (which gives the most complete collation: portrait +1394 engraved plates). A splendid copy, ex-libris Prince of Wales. Armorial bookplates on front pastedown with Royal Coat of Arms with lion and unicorn and moto of the Order of the Garter &#132;Honi soit qui mai y pense&#148;, armorial bookplate on back pastedown with monogram with royal crown and motto of the Order of the Garter. First and last pages (pages de garde) avec fleurs de lys in filigran. Completley gilt edges. Inside perfectly clean (see photos). B. de Montfaucon (1655-1741), Benedictine of the Congregation of Saint-Maur devoted to historical and ecclesiastical scholarship, is regarded as the father of Archaeology and Greek paleography. "His Antiquité surveyed in fifteen volumes the social and artistic aspects of the ancient civilizations; and the unfinished Monuments de la Monarchie Française tried to do the same for early French history. These works can well be called foundation stones of scientific archaeology" (Printing and the Mind of Man p.175). &#147;As this work has never been completely replaced, it still conserves its long-standing value. This edition (first one 1719 + supplements 1724) is the best, and beautiful copies are not easy to come by&#148; (Brunet 28960). Text in french and latin. Volumes with minor expert restorations, some hinges slightly split on a few volumes without affecting the binding, but with less age wear than expected considering the size of this large set. Overall a very good copy, extremley hard to find in such a beautiful condition and complete of all plates. Splendid bindings and magnificent provenance." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      [Amsterdam]. 1719. - Sheet map, 22 1/2 x 38 1/2 inches. Modern color. Handsomely matted and framed. Old fold lines, some minor wear. Very good. Large and handsome chart of St. Thomas, now in the U.S. Virgin Islands but then a Dutch colony, made by the famed Van Keulen cartography firm. This map was originally published as part of a 1720 edition of Van Keulen's DE GROOTE NIEUWE VERMEERDERDE ZEE-ATLAS., a significant work containing one hundred maps and charts (cf. Phillips). The chart shows the entire island on a very large scale, with its topographical features and harbor depths, as well as the forts and settlements. Two insets on the right show a detailed view of the harbor of St. Thomas and the harbor of the neighboring island of St. John. Along the bottom are five profile elevations, showing the island from different angles. The map is one of the handsomest maps of the island made in the colonial period. Johannes van Keulen enrolled in the Dutch booksellers' guild in 1678 and began publishing sea charts and atlases. That same year, his son, Gerard (1678- 1726), was born, who would go on to become a skillful engraver and a significant asset to the firm. "This son was endowed with talent. He was a skillful engraver and proficient in mathematics and navigational science. Gerard was responsible for establishing the scientific basis of the firm of Van Keulen" (Koeman). Gerard van Keulen took over the family business in 1704 and would go on to become the hydrographer for the East India Company in 1714, a prestigious and important office. His son, Johannes, took up the family business upon his death in 1726. PHILLIPS ATLASES 5693. KOEMAN, KEU 31.

Il est surtout connu pour avoir rédigé (ou avoir fait rédiger) trois récits de voyage en Orient - et particulièrement en Égypte -, qui connurent en leur temps un véritable succès éditorial. Or la haute fantaisie de ces récits, et tout particulièrement du premier, a donné au voyageur une solide réputation de menteur. Cette première relation a aveuglé les critiques qui n&#146;ont pas alors su voir que Paul Lucas est non seulement le premier véritable explorateur de la Basse Égypte, où il découvre et décrit le premier le temple de l&#146;Iseum, mais aussi un pionnier de l&#146;exploration et de la description du Fayoum. En plus de ses découvertes, Paul Lucas est le premier à rapporter d&#146;authentiques croquis des temples réalisés sur place et c&#146;est peut-être l&#146;un des voyageurs les plus à l&#146;écoute des rumeurs locales, notamment celles concernant les monuments pharaoniques. Certes Lucas enjolive, déforme, invente même, mais plutôt que de tout rejeter en bloc, c&#146;est à nous, comme lorsque nous lisons Hérodote, de tirer un apport scientifique de sa gangue de fantaisie. .Première édition RARE du troisième voyage de Lucas effectué entre 1714 et 1717.

        "Carte tres curieuse de la Mer du Sud...from Atlas historique ou nouvelle introduction a l&#39;histoire..."from Atlas historique ou nouvelle introduction a l&#39;histoire

      Amsterdam, 1719. ONE OF THE MOST ELABORATELY ENGRAVED MAPS EVER PUBLISHED Hand-colored copper-plate engraving: 33" x 561/4" References: R. V. Tooley, The Mapping of America (London, 1985), 130; J. Goss, The Mapping of North America (Secaucus NJ, 1990), plate 52; G. McLaughlin & N. H. Mayo, The Mapping of California as an Island: An Illustrated Checklist (Saratoga, 1995), no. 190. Henri Châtelain&#39;s large-scale map is considered one of the most decorative and desirable engraved maps of the Western Hemisphere ever produced due to its fine detail and intricate engraving. This map was published in Atlas Historique, a comprehensive and highly informative seven-volume atlas for which Châtelain created the maps and Nicholas Gueudeville wrote the text. The map, which is primarily based on Nicholas De Fer&#39;s 1713 map, focuses on North and South America, which occupy the center, but also includes the entire Pacific with the East Indies, Japan, and Australia as well as all of the Atlantic, with a large portion of Europe and Africa presented. Grandiose and elaborately engraved, it is of wall-chart proportions, and it includes a veritable pictorial encyclopedia of the Western Hemisphere. Interestingly, even at this relatively late date, California is depicted as an island. However, Châtelain&#39;s depiction of this geographical curiosity shows uncertainty, as can be seen by the faintly drawn eastern coast of the land mass. In fact, Châtelain even includes an annotation that states that many modern thinkers believe California to be a part of the mainland. In a similar manner, the coastline of Australia is convoluted and the coast of the western half of Tierra del Fuego is also lightly drawn. Nonetheless, the map provides a wealth of cartographic information in great detail, including the correct depiction of the Great Lakes and a relatively accurate course for the Mississippi River. The paths of the major voyages in the Pacific, including those of Magellan and LeMaire, are noted and medallion portraits of celebrated explorers from the Age of Discovery are shown. The highly decorative cartouches and splendid vignettes are meant to give a picture of native flora and fauna as well as of the customs and lifestyles of the indigenous people in the Americas, subjects which were both unusual and enticing to Europeans at that time. There are vignettes illustrating sugar mills, mining, Native Americas hunting and fishing, as well as a more exotic, titillating depiction of an Aztec pyramid and human sacrifice. In the space between Asia and the Americas is an elaborate view of a beaver colony in Niagara Falls, and the Northern Atlantic region includes a vignette of cod fisheries in Newfoundland, illustrating the two main products at the center of trade in the New World. Two very involved cartouches on the lower sheet include inset maps and city plans of Acapulco, Panama, Vera Cruz, and other New World cities, and there are views of the Strait of Gibraltar and the Cape of Good Hope..

This is the first English dictionary to make any considerable use of woodcuts; the next development in this respect does not appear until 1727, when Bailey in his Universal Etymological English Dictionary, Volume II, illustrates scientific as well as heraldic terms"" (Starnes & Noyes, p. 94). Often passed off as a later edition of Blount because of its similar title and design, this dictionary, while owing a debt to Blount, is in fact a new work by an anonymous author who placed an emphasis on science, which Starnes & Noyes call ""the most formative and forward- looking feature"" of it. & & Alston V, 90; ESTC T97585; Vancil, p. 99."

Los coches simones fueron los primeros coches de alquiler que circularon en el mundo, en estos impresos se menciona a Simón González que en 1640 era "maestro de hacer coches" por lo que el nombre de coches simón, un tipo pequeño de coches cómodo y ágil, muy probablemente se deba al referido González).

        GLOSSOGRAPHIA ANGLICANA NOVA: or, A dictionary interpreting such hard words of whatever language, as are at present used in the English tongue, with their etymologies, definitions, &c.

      printed for D. Brown, T. Goodwin [et al.], London 1719 - "Second edition, with the addition of above three thousand words not in the former, 8vo, pp. [6] & unpaginated lexicon in double column; woodcut head- and tail-pieces, initials, and heraldic illustrations in text; a nice copy in slightly later full panelled calf, rebacked, gilt spine in 6 compartments, raised bands, lacking spine label; extremities rubbed and worn, slightly later (1782) ownership signature "Wm. Harris" on title page; textblock good and sound. In spite of the claim, Starnes & Noyes note that this edition contains "no important change We should estimate that only about one thousand words and miscellaneous items have been added." This is the first English dictionary to make any considerable use of woodcuts; the next development in this respect does not appear until 1727, when Bailey in his Universal Etymological English Dictionary, Volume II, illustrates scientific as well as heraldic terms" (Starnes & Noyes, p. 94). Often passed off as a later edition of Blount because of its similar title and design, this dictionary, while owing a debt to Blount, is in fact a new work by an anonymous author who placed an emphasis on science, which Starnes & Noyes call "the most formative and forward- looking feature" of it. Alston V, 90; ESTC T97585; Vancil, p. 99."
