      Torino: Reycends & Guiberts. (c. 1722). oblong folio, contemporary blue wrappers. 26 engraved leaves (of 28).. Text in Italian. A manual by Italian writing master Pitois. One of a number of his works produced in Turin by Reycends Brothers and the book/mapseller firm Guibert. At the beginning of the 18th century, the Rome-Venice hegemony in penmanship was waning, due to growing French influence in calligraphy. This slant towards French taste is revealed in the "Moderno" of the title, and the fact that most of the twenty-six leaves are marked as engraved in Paris by artist Claude-Auguste de Berey. From 1690 to 1730 de Berey, or Berey, engraved the plates for several well-known French works on calligraphy. All the firm's writing manuals printed at this time were engraved in Paris (Barker, p. 147). Two leaves lacking. Soiled, margins chipped, old fold at center.

        Tabulae Anatomicae, 1722 (Folio Size, 47 Plates)

      Amsterdam: R. & G. Wetstenios, 1722. Second edition. Folio. 375 x 235 cm. Contemporary brown boards, calf spine with six raised bands, label with title. Engraved title-page showing illustration of a dissection and exquisite 47 full-page engraved plates all fine, with superior registration and dark impressions. On an attached string is the original ruler usually not found. Eustachio's finely executed drawings for the Tabulae depicting the thorax, nervous system, various organs and vascular structures were equal to any drawn in the period. The Dutch 1722 is of great rarity and few complete copies have survived in contemporary bindings. Tomlinson remarks, "Eustachio's plates are remarkable not only for the advanced anatomical knowledge shown, but also for the original method of identification of structures drawn on the plates, and for their artistic qualities." A complete, tall copy, contents clean and bright with the only flaw being a crude mending of tears to the lower corner of the title page. There is a loss of some of the paper, but not affecting any lettering or the engraving. Binding worn with top one inch of spine worn away, corners chipped, edges worn. Still a well-preserved and attractive binding; moreso, a nearly fine example of all of the engravings.

        Oppian's Halieuticks of the Nature of Fishes and Fishing of the Ancients In V Books. Translated from the Greek, With an Account of Oppian's Life and Writings, and a Catalogue of his Fishes

      Oxford: Printed at The Theater, 1722. First Edition in English. Engraved title vignette. [8], 232, [7, list of subscribers]. Bound in contemporary gilt paneled full red morocco, a.e.g. Spine faded, and slightly split. A Handsome copy. Lowndes 1726; Brunet IV: 196; Heckscher 1483; Westwood & Satchel, 164; lDean's Bibliography of Fishes (Dean III:295) states that "of all the ancient writers on fish and fishing, Oppian is easily the most important"; Wood p. 500 . "The labor of translating this Greco-Roman author was divided between Mr. Diaper (Pt. 1, Books I and II) and John Jones (Pt. 2, Books III to V). The latter contributor also wrote an account of Oppian"s life and writings and compiled a catalogue of his Fishes. The contests between rival factions in the sea are amusingly drawn in the lines relating to the Lobster, the Lamprey, and the Preke (octopus). The remarkable color-changes of the last named were well know to the ancients (Book II). "-Wood

To which is now added, A Treatise of Military Orders, and The Art of Gunnery, or throwing of Bombs, Balls, &c. to hit any Object assign'd. By W. Allingham, Master of the Mathematical-School in Channel-Row, Westminster. The fourth edition 1722, 'Carefully Revised & Corrected by the Original'. 8vo, approximately 200 x 120 mm, 8 x 4½ inches, engraved frontispiece or extra title page, 31 engraved folding plates, pages (16), 213, (3) - adverts, bound in full contemporary calf, double ruled gilt border to covers, raised bands and gilt decoration to spine, gilt lettered morocco title label. Spine worn, label chipped, head of spine slightly chipped, upper hinge cracked, sturdy old paper repair to front inner hinge, lower hinge starting to crack, covers slightly scuffed, corners just slightly worn, ink name on front pastedown and at top of title page, small ink stain on 1 page, no loss, 6 neat ink notes, 2 plates have small pale stain to lower margin, 1 plate slightly ragged at fore-edge, not affecting image, a couple of plates misfolded and protruding slightly beyond text block, final plate has 2 small edge tears and a small split on 1 fold, all neatly repaired. Text block tight and firm. An acceptable working copy of a rare military book. Sébastien Le Prestre, Seigneur de Vauban and later Marquis de Vauban (1633–1707), commonly referred to as Vauban, was a Marshal of France and the foremost military engineer of his age. He was famous for his skill in both designing fortifications and in breaking through them. He also advised Louis XIV on how to consolidate France's borders, to make them more defensible. He made the radical suggestion of giving up some land that was indefensible to allow for a stronger, less porous border with France's neighbours. He was involved in the Siege of Maastricht (1673), the Siege of Valenciennes (1677) and the fortification of the cities of Strasbourg (1681) and Landau (1688). Often attributed to the pen of Vauban, this work is actually a translation of the Chevalier de Cambray's “Maniere de fortifier de Mr. de Vauban" and was first published in English in 1691. The translator's Dedicatory Epistle is signed A. S. (Abel Swall). Recognised as an important work in its field the English edition was reprinted twice more in the 18th century after our fourth edition in 1748 and 1762. However it is very scarce in any edition. The book is in 3 sections: pages 1-61 A New Treatise of Geometry; pages 61-186 A Treatise of Fortification; pages 187-213 Military orders and the Art of Gunnery. Spaulding and Karpinski, Early Military Books in the Michigan Libraries, page 23, No. 201. Not in Sotheby's Library of the Earls of Macclesfield, Part 10. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING.

      Uden trykkerangivelse, [København] 1722. 8vo. Upagineret (120) sider. Smukt samtidigt brunmarmoreret hellæderbind med rig rygforgyldning, spejldekoration og forgyldt dekoration på permerne. Samtidigt navn på forreste friblad; senere navnetræk (1881) på bagsiden af forreste friblad. Ganske få pletter hist og her, men som helhed et særdeles velbevaret og attraktivt eksemplar.. Ehrencron-Müller I,79. Paul Johansen 6,2. Udsøgt eksemplar af det samtidige eftertryk af denne opfølger til Peder Paars, tidligere samme år udsendt med titlen typograferet "4re Skiemte-Digte". Eftertrykket, der efter al sandsynlighed er godkendt af Holberg selv, er væsentlig smukkere trykt end førstetrykket (se Ehrencron-Müller I,78) og har datoen i fortalen ændret fra 12. januar til 22. januar 1722. Sandsynligvis afspejler eftertrykket betydelig efterspørgsel på bogen. Holbergs tredje udgave af bogen fra 1746 er sat efter 22. januar-teksten, hvilket underbygger formodningen om, at Holberg har godkendt eftertrykket. ** Indholdet i denne tidlige Holberg-bog følger op på "Peder Paars"; fra samme alexandriner-metrum til hele det til lejligheden opfundne galleri af skrivende borgere i "Callundborg". Den mest interessante figur i bogen er Zille Hansdatter fra Ebeltoft, der i sin "Gynaicologia eller Forsvars Skrift for Qvinde-Kiønnet" slår til lyd for kvinders ligestilling med mænd, hvormed "hun" for al eftertid har sikret Holberg et navn som progressiv samfundstænker. Mere skulle komme til, men med denne bog slog han for alvor tonen an

        Merckell, 1722. 4:o.

      28 s. + DUHRE, AND. GAB. Förklaring öfwer des tilförende uthgifne wälmente tanckar angående huru han tillika med sin broder är sinnad at utan almenna bestas betungande uppå deras egit äfwentyr uprätta ett laboratorium mathematico-oeconomicum. Sthlm, H. C. Merckell, 1722. 4:o. 55 s. Häftad i ngt nött samtida turkmarmorerat omslag. Ryggen blekt och med några revor upptill. Bra inlaga med enstaka smärre lagerfläckar. Fint ex. från Ericsberg.. Hebbe Den svenska lantbrukslitteraturen 2190-91. Anders Gabriel Duhre (omkring 1680-1739) var auskultant i Bergskollegium och algebraist på Fortifikationens e.o. stat. Vid sidan av matematiken var hans stora intresse ekonomin. Denna Laboratorium mathematico-oeconomicum, d.v.s. en ekonomisk-teknisk skola baserad på lantbruksdrift, hade han redan, enligt egen utsago, framlagt för Karl XII 1707. Laboratoriets lärarstab skulle bilda en "societet" och institutet således förena universitets- och akademielement. Undervisningen skulle omfatta hantverk såsom svarvning, snickeri, smideskonst, ur- och instrumentmakeri, glassliperi, väveri, skeppsbyggeri, vidare boskapsskötsel, åkerbruk med gödsling, ängs- och trädgårdsskötsel, sädeströskning o.s.v. Duhre hemställde om upplåtande av Ultuna kungsladugård på arrende för sitt laboratorium och sedan ständerna beslutat i enlighet med hans önskan, erhöll han genom kungligt brev 1723 Ultuna på arrende. Själva undervisningen förlade Duhre till Uppsala. Hans läroanstalt var välbesökt åren 1725-30 och bland lärarna märktes bl.a. Anders Celsius. Dock miste han såväl årsanslaget till föreläsningar som arrendet till Ultuna 1731. Den entusiastiske Duhre var en föregångsman för många moderna idéer, särskilt rörande den tekniska yrkesutbildningen och lantbrukets rationalisering och hans verk bidrog förmodligen till upprättandet av en professur i ekonomi vid Uppsala universitet 1740
