Homer; [Pope Alexander, Trans.]
W. Bowyer; Henry Lintot, 1720. 11 volumes in six. A complete set of the very scarce FIRST "POCKET" or SMALLER FORMAT EDITION and second edition overall of Pope's great translation of Homer's Iliad and Odyssey. Finely engraved plates, titles, head and tail pieces, portraits and maps throughout all the volumes. Fine, heraldic ownership plates of Bolton in each volume. 8vo, handsome later antique half-calf over marbled boards, the spines with raised bands gilt stippled, the compartments with central gilt ornamental devices and red morocco lettering labels gilt, red edges. A very handsome set, fresh and clean. VERY SCARCE. A FINE SET IN ANTIQUE CALF GILT. ENGRAVED ILLUSTRATIONS AND PLATES THROUGHOUT. It has been justifiably claimed that Pope's translation is inaccurate due to his reliance on the sense of the texts of Chapman, Hobbes, Ogilby, Dacier and others--but "others have produced translations; Pope's work is a poem" (CHEL, IX, p. 84). Its fame and longevity are due more to Pope's desire to keep the spirit and fire of the epic alive than any obligation to render Homer in academic exactitude. HOMER'S ILIADS AND ODYSSEYS ARE STILL CONSIDERED THE MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL WORKS IN ALL OF GREEK CLASSICAL LITERATURE, AND THE WELLSPRING OF ALL SUBSEQUENT LITERATURE. The primacy of Homer's OPERA, particularly the ILIAD and ODYSSEY, cannot be overstated. "The ILIAD and ODYSSEY are the first perfect poetry of the western world. They spring fully grown, their predecessors lost, and their magic has persisted ever since. The legends of the siege of Troy and the return of Odysseus are the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Frontispiece, (8), 189, (misnumbered: 1-168, 167-187), (19, publisher's catalogue) pp. 12mo. Modern marbled wrapper, held in a cloth clamshell box, label with gilt lettering to spine, a very nice and uncut copy. Kress 3235; Goldsmiths 5820; Einaudi 3274; Mattioli 1948; Carpenter, IX, (4); European Americana, 720/139; JFBL L134; Sabin has a number of translations but not this French one, and a late (1750) English edition. Very rare first edition in French of Law's major work, Money and Trade Considered ..., which is extremely rare in the first English edition of 1705. A fugitive from justice in 1694 for killing a man in a duel in England, Law travelled extensively throughout Europe, observing and gaining experience in banking, insurance and finance. He proposed a number of unsuccessful schemes to set up a national bank of issue in Paris (1702), Edinburgh (1705), and Savoy (1712), finally attaining success in France with the establishment in 1718 of the Banque Royale. His monetary strategy included the management of public debt and colonial expansion. In 1717 the French crown created the Compagnie d'Occident, well known as the Compagnie du Mississippi. By converting state notes into its shares, the Company extended its rights over the economic exploitation of Louisiana. In August 1718 it acquired the monopoly over tobacco, and in 1719 it absorbed other French trading companies, obtaining control of mint, payment of the national debt, and receipt of tax revenues.

Unable to understand a treatise by Jakob I Bernoulli on the subject, loaned to him by Nikolaus, he dropped the matter until 1717, when he read Leibniz's article on the quadrature of the circle in 'Acta eruditorum'.

Le tavole numerate sono tutte in buonissime condizioni (un difetto marginale solo alla n. 78). Le tavole aggiunte e ripiegate in fine si presentano invece con strappi, piegatura con antiche riparazioni o rinforzi, la più grande su carta pesante ancora divisa in due.

He lived consecutively in Paris, St. Martins, London (c. 1710), The Hague (c. 1721) and Amsterdam (c. 1728). He is best known as a Dutch cartographer and more specifically for his cartographic contribution in the seminal seven volume Atlas Historique, published in Amsterdam between 1705 and 1720. Innovative for its time, the Atlas Historique combined fine engraving and artwork with scholarly studies of geography, history, ethnology, heraldry, and cosmography. Some scholarship suggests that the Atlas Historique was not exclusively compiled by Henri Chatelain, as is commonly believed, but rather was a family enterprise involving Henri, his father Zacharie and his brother, also Zacharie.

Dezauche/de l Isle, J.A. / G.
Artist: Dezauche/de l Isle JA / G; date: ca, 1720. - technic: Copper print; - colorit: colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 48 x 64; - description: Map shows the River Rhine - vita of the artist: J. A. Dezauche was the successor to Guillaume De L'Isle and Philipe Buache. Guillaume De L isle (1626- 1757) Paris, was a French cartographer known for his popular and accurate maps of Europe and the newly explored Americas and Africa. De L isle was admitted into the French Académie Royale des Sciences, an institution financed by the French state. After that date, he signed his maps with the title of ?Géographe de l?Académie? Five years later, he moved to the Quai de l?Horloge in Paris, a true publishing hub where his business prospered. De L isle?s ascension through the ranks culminated in 1718 when he received the title of Premier Géographe du Roi. His new office consisted in teaching geography to the Dauphin, King Louis XIV?s son, a task for which he received a salary. De L sle?s reputation as a man of science probably helped .This supports the claim of the historian Mary Sponberg Pedley, who says ?once authority was established, a geographer?s name might retain enough value to support two or three generations of mapmakers? In De L isle?s case, it could be said that his accomplishments surpassed his father?s. Up to that point, he had drawn maps not only of European countries, such as Italy, Spain, Germany, Great Britain, Poland, and regions such as the Duchy of Burgundy, but he had also contributed to the empire?s claims to recently explored continents of Africa and … [Click Below for Full Description]

Pieter VANDER AA (1659 - 1733)
Pianta della capitale maltese di Pieter van der Aa, tratta dal suo atlante "La Galérie Agréable du Monde" pubblicato a Leida nel 1729. Incisione in rame, in buono stato di conservazione. A dynamic bird's-eye view of Valletta, the capital city of Malta, published circa 1720. Seen from the northwest, the city is richly detailed, although likely arranged more geometrically than in reality. Surrounding cities of Senglea and Vittoriosa, as well as Fort Ricasoli, are also shown to the left of the capital. A figured title cartouche in the lower left shows a group of men, one carrying a trunk on his back bearing the title. The surrounding waters are filled with decorative ships, and a French coat of arms is drawn in the upper left corner to indicate France's colonial control of the region. A key in the upper right identifies 46 principal spots in the town. The map is in very good condition with overall toning and no chips or tears. Original uncolored engraving with narrow margins as issued. Published by Pieter Van der Aa, was also parte of the Dapper's travel. Olfert Dapper (c. 1635 - 1689) was a Dutch physician and writer. His work was especially valued then and now for its precise style of engraving, of which this map of Valletta is a beautiful example.
