        Groote vissery.Amsterdam, Petrus Schenk, [ca. 1720]. Folio. With engraved general title-page, and 2 series of 16 engraved prints (17.5 x 20.5 cm) on 17 leaves, numbered 1-17 and 1-16. All plates engraved by Adolf van der Laan after drawings by Sieuwert van der Meulen. Contemporary wrappers.

      Atlas van Stolk 3019; E. Ingals, Whaling prints in the F.B. Lothrop collection 15-30; Muller, Historieplaten supplement 3013 C (no copy seen). Extremely rare first edition of two print series with engraved general title: Groote vissery . One series presents the herring fishery and trade, and the other is a classic set of 16 whaling prints by Adolf van der Laan. "The exceptional comprehensiveness, historical accuracy, maritime detail, and artistry are rare in the history of the pictorial documentation of the industry..." (Ingals, p. 9). These 16 scenes show the different stages of whale fishery: the search for a whale, the attempt to catch it, butchering it, hunting polar bears, ships getting caught in ice, etc. "The set's popularity must have been somewhat exceptional, for it appears in innumerable variations, copies, and extractions" (Ingals, p. 9). It is believed that Sieuwert van der Meulen made the original drawings for the set around 1720, just after the Dutch entered Davis Strait, opening vast new whaling grounds and bringing new vitality, prosperity and interest to the industry. The first series (Herring fishery) with text in Dutch and English. The second series (Whaling) with text in Dutch, English and German.With a couple minor smudges in the margins, otherwise in very good condition and wholly untrimmed. Wrappers rubbed along the extremities.

First edition - 1720 1st ed Robinson Crusoe Daniel Defoe Voyages Illustrated Shipwreck 2v French “It is never too late to be wise.” Daniel Defoe, Robinson Crusoe “One of the most beautiful travel books in figures of the eighteenth century" (Gumuchian) Called the original adventure novel, Robinson Crusoe was originally published in 1719 and depicts the life of a castaway who learns to survive on an island for decades. However, while it saw substantial success with the masses, there were still those that were not impressed. Charles Dickens said, “.Robinson Crusoe should be the only instance of a universally popular book that could make no one laugh and could make no one cry.” This first edition was edited and translated into French by Themiseuil de Saint-Hyacinthe et J. van Effen. Complete in two volumes, a third (or supplemental) volume was written a year later. This first edition is unique in that it was the first edition printed with more than a frontispiece and map.

        Tractatus de febrium natura & differentiis 82pp manuscript With Brevis chirurgiae synopsis manuscript 81pp

      1720. Astruc, Jean (1684-1766). Tractatus de febrium natura & differentiis. Authore D. D. J. Astruc in alma Monspelliensiu[m] medicinae facultate professore regio dignissimo. Manuscript document. 4to. 76pp. N.p., 1720. Together with another medical ms. in the same hand (Brevis chirurgiae exegesis. Seu synopsis, per summaria capita . . .), 81pp. The two mss. contained in a single volume, 222 x 167 mm. Modern quarter morocco, marbled boards, slightly rubbed. Portion of ms. title cut away, otherwise fine.A transcription of Astruc's lectures on fevers delivered at Montpellier, where Astruc served as professor of medicine from 1716 to 1728. Astruc, who later joined the Faculty of Medicine in Paris, was a highly skilled and influential teacher. During the 18th century it was common practice for medical lectures such as these to be transcribed and for a small number of manuscript copies to be sold to students who might not have been able to attend. Astruc was: "extremely methodical and clear in his instruction. In a series of courses lasting six years he [covered all phases of medicine: anatomy, physiology, psychology, gerontology, pathology, therapy, venereology, gynecology, neurology and pediatrics. Even in American libraries there are manuscript copies of these carefully prepared and highly appreciated courses; during Astruc's lifetime some of them were used for editions printed without his knowledge in England, Switzerland and Holland" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). An unauthorized edition of Astruc's lectures on fevers was published in England in 1749 under the title Academical Lectures on Fevers; it is likely that the present lectures are incorporated in this work. We have not found any French or Latin editions of this title in the library databases, and it is quite possible that this work remains unpublished in this form. Astruc was the author of several important medical works, most of which were first published in Latin. The best known of these is his De morbis veneris (1736 and later eds.), the first great work on venereal disease (see Garrison-Morton 5195). The surgical manuscript following Astruc's work is a brief exegesis of surgical operations arranged by chapter headings. Its authorship is unknown.

        Britannia Depicta; or, Ogilby Improv'd; being a Correct Coppy of Mr. Ogilby's Actual Survey of all ye Direct & Principal Cross Roads in England and Wales

      London: Tho. Bowles, 1720 - Octavo (204 × 130 mm). Recent panelled calf to style, red morocco label, foliate roll in blind to the bands. Light browning throughout, some foxing, largely marginal, last map mounted on a stub, and with minor loss at the inner margin, overall very good. Engraved title page, 4-page table, 273 engraved maps. First edition, first issue of this of this highly popular reduced version of John Ogilby's 1675 road atlas; Bowen's address given as "next ye King of Spain", plate 128 misnumbered 121, and plates 74 and 75 transposed. Bowles decided to go one better than Thomas Gardner and John Senex, who were planning reduced size re-issues of Ogilby, by augmenting the work with 54 county maps and "a multitude of historical, topographical and statistical information" (Hodson) by the antiquarian John Owen, the whole engraved onto 273 strip-maps by Emanuel Bowen. Bowles puffed the work extravagantly claiming, that "One leaf of this, contains more Observations than any whole book of this Nature yet publish'd", and seems to have stirred up "a great demand as there were four editions issued from 1720 to 1724" (Chubb). How practical this was as a road-book is questionable, the lay-out is rather cluttered with three or four road strips per page, together with the county maps, armorials, and minisculely engraved cursive text, however, it is certainly lively, and undoubtedly would have possessed considerable novelty on publication. Ogilby's survey itself was the first of the roads of England and Wales, "and [he] is probably best known on this account . Sir H.G. Fordham . says [the survey] 'is of particular and historical importance, as it displaced the old British mile of 2,428 yards, and substituted it for the statute mile of 1,760 yards, thus effecting a revolution in customary measurements'" (Chubb, p. 444). Chubb pp. 117–23; Hodson 149. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Amsterdam Schreierstoren, Geldersekade, 1720.

      "Gezicht van den Ykant af bezyden den Schreiers Hoex Toren langs de Keulsche en Geldersche Kaei naer den Nieuwe Markt, St. Antonis Waeg en Zuider Kerk."(Tegenwoordig heet de hele gracht Geldersekade en kijken we richting Nieuwmarkt en Waag.) Gravure van 2 koperen platen gedrukt, later met de hand gekleurd. Ca. 1720 vervaardigd door Hendrick de Leth, naar A. Rademaker. Afm. ca. 57,5 x 93 cm.Dit blad komt uit een serie van 25 zeldzame fraaie grote gezichten van Amsterdam en geeft een kleurrijk beeld van het leven en bedrijf van de stad aan het begin van de 18e eeuw. Niet alleen voor het stadsbeeld en architectuur uit die tijd is deze bijzondere prent van belang, maar ook door de aardige stoffering, die zeden en gewoonten schetst. Er spelen zich allerlei taferelen af ??onder het volk en de deftige luiden?. Zo is er links van de brug op de voorgrond (tegenwoordig Prins Hendrikkade) een vechtpartij, terwijl voor de Scheierstoren rustige burgers de daartegen aangeplakte biljetten lezen.Aan het begin van de Geldersekade op de hoek met de Oudezijds Kolk, staat de Schreierstoren. De Schreierstoren is de enige overgebleven verdedigingstoren van de middeleeuwse stadsmuur. Oorspronkelijk rees de toren op vanuit het water met net boven het wateroppervlak 2 schietgaten. In 1532 kreeg hij zijn huidige gedaante. In het begin van de zeventiende eeuw werd de stadsmuur afgebroken en de singel gegraven. De toren heette oorspronkelijk de Schreiershoekstoren. ?Schreihoek? verwijst waarschijnlijk naar de scherpe hoek waar de Geldersekade en de Oudezijds Kolk samenkomen. De Schreierstoren is echter de geschiedenis ingegaan als de plek waar veel vrouwen schreiend hun geliefden hebben zien wegvaren.De Geldersekade dankt haar naam aan de aangemeerde beurtschepen, een soort geregelde lijndiensten, die op de Gelderse steden voeren nadat deze gracht binnen de nieuwe stadsmuren was komen te liggen.Literatuur: Veiling catalogus verzameling De Vries (1925), nr. 273.Prijs: ?4.250,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling van toepassing).
