         Orbis Vetus in utraque continente

      Artist: Vaugondyde Robert ( - 1786) Paris; issued in: Paris; date: ca 1702 1723 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Mounted, missing part on lower center replaced, tear on left lower side restored, fold; - size (in cm): 47,5 x 71; - description: Decorative map shows the world in two hemispheres, california as an island an 2 decorative cartouches. The Island of California refers to a long-held Spanish misconception, dating from the 16th century, that California was not part of mainland North America but rather a large island separated from the continent by a strait now known as the Gulf of California.One of the most famous cartographic errors in history, it was propagated on many maps during the 17th and 18th centuries, despite contradictory evidence from various explorers. The legend was initially infused with the idea that California was a terrestrial paradise, like the Garden of Eden or Atlantis. Australia not completely depicted as the complete coast was not charted at that time.; -vita of the artist: Didier Robert de Vaugondy (1723 -1786) also known as Le Sieur or Monsieur Robert, and his son, were leading cartographers in France during the 18th century. In 1757, Gilles and Didier Robert De Vaugondy published The Atlas Universel, one of the most important atlases of the 18th century. To produce the atlas, the Vaugondys integrated older sources with more modern surveyed maps. They verified and corrected the latitude and longitude of many regional maps in the atlas with astronomical observations. The older material was revised with the addition of many new place names. In 1760, Didier Robert de Vaugondy was appointed geographer to Louis XV.Gilles and Didier Robert De Vaugondy produced their maps and terrestrial globes working together as father and son. Globes of a variety of sizes were made by gluing copperplate-printed gores on a plaster-finished papier-mache core, a complicated and expensive manufacturing process, employing several specialists. In some cases it is uncertain whether Gilles or Didier made a given map. Gilles often signed maps as M.Robert, while Didier commonly signed his maps as "Robert de Vaugondy", or added "fils" or "filio" after his name.The Robert de Vaugondys were descended from the Nicolas Sanson family through Sanson's grandson, Pierre Moulard-Sanson. From him, they inherited much of Sanson's cartographic material, which they combined with maps and plates acquired after Hubert Jaillot's death in 1712 to form the basis the Atlas Universel.

         Ceremonies et Coutumes Religieuses de tous les Peuples du Monde, représentées par des figures dessinées de la main de Bernard Picart: avec une explication historique, & quelques dissertations curieuses.

      Amsterdam: J. F. Bernard, 1723—39 - 7 volumes, folio (400 x 240 mm).

Early ownership inscription of "C. L. Geller" at foot of front free endpaper in each volume; neat early 19th-century book label of C. H. Soltau (the Soltau family played an important part in the early days of the Plymouth Brethren); ownership inscription of Henry and Jane Birkbeck (dated April 1820), the Birkbecks were a Norfolk banking family; early note of purchase price on front free endpaper of volume I: "£25 - 7. vols. III 1797". Occasional dust-marking, some gatherings toned. An excellent set. 223 engraved plates by Picart (31 double-page or folding), engraved title vignettes and headpieces, woodcut decorations; title pages printed in red and black. Mixed early editions of one of the great books of the 18th century, a work that "marked a major turning point in European attitudes toward religious belief" (Hunt, Jacob & Mijnhardt, The Book that Changed Europe: Picart & Bernard's Religious Ceremonies of the World, Harvard UP 2010, p. 1). Originally published between 1723 and 1737, the monumental Ceremonies and Religious Customs of the Various Nations was the result of a collaboration between Europe's leading engraver, Bernard Picart, and the publisher and author Jean Frederic Bernard. Both men were Protestant refugees driven by the Counter-Reformation from France to Amsterdam, where, in a fertile milieu of radicals and free-thinkers, they produced one of the world's greatest religious books. "The original seven volumes were supplemented by two others that are very different in character and not included here [in the Getty Research Library's set]" (ibid.). Volume VII concludes with an extensive index. Born in France in 1680, Bernard moved to Amsterdam with his family in 1686. He became a full member of the bookseller's guild in 1711 and though he "possessed a good business acumen, books for him were more than just a business. He became a highly selective publisher with a small catalogue dominated by free-spirited theological inquiry and travel literature" (ibid. p. 94). The trials his family faced in France deeply affected the young man, who developed "a lifelong doubt about the value of established religion, and a quest for religion's underlying essence" (ibid. p. 95). He also believed that it was his role as publisher to provide readers with "the information necessary to find their way out of the labyrinth of delusions and begin to decide religious matters for themselves" (ibid. p. 106). After a decade in publishing, Bernard announced in 1720 a grand plan for a religious encyclopaedia. Eventually comprising seven volumes and more than 200 engraved plates, The Religious Ceremonies was a massive undertaking and the culmination of his life-long interest in religion. By presenting the world's religions as equally deserving of intellectual understanding, he ultimately made the case that there existed among all peoples a pure "natural religion" distinct from the elaborate and sometimes immoral practices imposed by priests. To accomplish this he compiled the most up-to-date and accurate sources and added his own commentary. While guiding the reader with careful juxtapositions he also maintained an academic distance, allowing his sources to speak for themselves and the reader to make up his own mind. Just as influential as the text, Picart's engravings were small masterpieces, drawn from life wherever possible and otherwise taken respectfully from the most authentic sources. As well as making his images beautiful and accurate, the engraver "constantly strove to make foreign deities, practices or processions more palatable to European viewers He achieved this effect in various ways, but putting unfamiliar deities on classical pedestals, by excluding the scenes of greatest violence depicted by

         'Whereas it is found by experience that ye number and consequently the question of the poore within the easterne parte of the county of Kent is already exceeding great and will, if not remedied beome intolerable to the great range of inhabitants as well as distresse of the poor themselves for want of workhouses to sett their poor to work and a sufficient authority to compel them thereunto for remedy whereof.'

      [1723?] This appears to be a manuscript draft proposal, written on 7 folio sheets, to be presented to Parliament, for the establishment of workhouses, workhouse hospitals, and houses of correction, the appointment of Justices of the Peace and overseers of the poor, and details for the regulation, funding, and administration of these proposals. There are a number of corrections and deletions, indicating a work in progress rather than a fair copy. Each sheet is neatly folded, the final one a little dusted on the reverse, with slight wear to folds, and a neat marginal repair.The sixteenth century increase in poverty led to a system of parish based poor relief evolving from Acts of 1597 and 1601 and lasting, with modification, until 1834. The Acts created a poor rate and overseers to care for the 'settled' impotent poor of every parish. The able-bodied were to be set to work. In their homes the 'deserving' poor received 'outrelief' in cash, food, clothing, fuel, rent and medical aid. Since poverty was created by unemployment, parishes were empowered to 'set the poor on work' in 'Abiding and Working Houses'. Although undated, this manuscript was most likely drafted just after Knatchbull's Act of 1722 which permitted parishes or groups of parishes to build or rent workhouses to 'receive the labour' of their inmates. Refusal to enter meant ineligibility for relief. By 1776 the basic pattern of a Kent workhouse system had emerged. Some 132 workhouses had accommodation, sometimes shared, for 5,819 inmates. Only 29 of 391 parishes did not use them since they were thought cheaper than 'outrelief'. While some large urban workhouses held 100-350 paupers, half held under 30 and were little more than cottages. PLEASE NOTE: For customers within the UK and the EU, this item is subject to VAT.

Bookblock of all volumes in good condition. Except for the traces of use a good copy. The Scottish economist Adam Smith (1723-1790) was the most influential thinker in the history of capitalist economics. The publication of his book ‘An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations' in 1776 established him as the single most influential figure in the development of modern economic theory. He describes the workings of a market 4, 54, 228, , the division of labor in production, the nature of wealth in relation to money, the inability of governments to manage economies, and the difference between productive and nonproductive labor. Smith's standardwork was reprinted many times in the eightteenth and nineteenth centuries and also in more recent times his work is being published (even a full text electronic edition is available on the internet). The present set is a rare, early edition, printed in London in 1793, only a few years after Smith's death. B0062. 4, 54, 228, ; Philosophy.

         The Fatal Legacy; A Tragedy. As it is Acted at the Theatre-Royal in Lincolns-Inn Fields

      London: Printed for E. Symon, J. Roberts and A. Dodd, 1723 - 8vo, disbound, 79 pages. Half-title present. A translation and adaptation of Racine's La ThÈbaide. The anonymous dedication states "This tragedy was writ by a young lady, and entrusted to my management . . . The four first acts are taken chiefly from Racine; but the last is (excepting a few lines) entirely new." The Fatal Legacy had a short run at Lincolns-Inn Fields, with Anthony and Anna Maria Seymour Boheme in starring roles. It is apparently the only publication by Jane Robe, about whom little else is recorded. The attribution to Robe comes from Allardyce Nicoll's A History of English Drama. First and final leaves a little dust-soiled; very good copy. [Attributes: First Edition]

To produce the atlas, the Vaugondys integrated older sources with more modern surveyed maps. They verified and corrected the latitude and longitude of many regional maps in the atlas with astronomical observations. The older material was revised with the addition of many new place names. In 1760, Didier Robert de Vaugondy was appointed geographer to Louis XV.Gilles and Didier Robert De Vaugondy produced their maps and terrestrial globes working together as father and son. Globes of a variety of sizes were made by gluing copperplate-printed gores on a plaster-finished papier-mache core, a complicated and expensive manufacturing process, employing several specialists. In some cases it is uncertain whether Gilles or Didier made a given map. Gilles often signed maps as M.Robert, while Didier commonly signed his maps as "Robert de Vaugondy", or added "fils" or "filio" after his name.The Robert de Vaugondys were descended from the Nicolas Sanson family through Sansons grandson, Pierre Moulard-Sanson. From him, they inherited much of Sansons cartographic material, which they combined with maps and plates acquired after Hubert Jaillots death in 1712 to form the basis the Atlas Universel.

         Obras de albeytería... Aora nuevamente añadido la sanidad del cavallo y explicación de sus enfemedades

      Early edition, one of the most significant treatises on albeyteria made in Spain in the 17th century, demonstrated by the several editions it went through; Arredondo´s work on the veterinary on horses was well accepted in his time and into the next century. On pp.147 we find the full-page woodcut illustrating a horse surrounded by the zodiac signs and their influence on the animal. The work is divided in three parts, dealing with pathology, therapeutics, antidotes and pharmacology, anatomy (some of it after Ruini). "Sin embargo que esta obra presenta sus extravios, sobre todo en la anatomia, no se puede negar que la Veterinaria le debe mucho a Arredondo, pues trato varios puntos con madurez y reflexion... El alfabeto medicinal de simples es muy digno de leerse" (Catalogo de algunos Autores Españoles que han escrito de Veterinaria, pp.15, 1780). "Arredondo se propuso recopilar los autores españoles que escribieron de veterinaria: cita las obras de los que mas se han distinguido en ello, y las personas ilustres que mas contribuian en su epoca a honrar esta clase de conocimientos" (Braulio Antón Ramírez, Diccionario de bibliografía agronómica, pp.302). The albeyteria was the science dedicated to the maintenance, treating and curing of animals, especially equine; it´s origins in the Spanish language are the "Llibre de la menescalia" or Libro de Albeyteria by Diaz, and shortly after, the one by Reyna. It is an early attempt of veterinary science, although plagued with folk knowledge and advice, appealing in instances to sciences as astrology, instead of scientific method. A rare edition, we found copies at: Danish Union Catalogue, Universitat de Valencia, Biblioteca Nacional de España, Biblioteca Universitaria de Granada, Universidad Complutense, Texas A&M. Palau, 17372.

A very attractive early Georgian Bible bound together with The Book of Common Prayer (Oxford: John Baskett, 1719) and The Whole Book of Psalms (London: Printed by T. Wood and S. Palmer, for the Company of Stationers, 1723). The printer, John Baskett, is better known for the luxurious but ill-fated Vinegar Bible (with its famous misprinting of the parable of the vineyard). With an appealing contemporary London provenance: a preliminary blank carries the family record of "William Sheppard & Sarah his wife", dating from 1725 to 1741, and noting the birth of their sons at Homerton, in Hackney, their christening at St. John's, Hackney, or at St. Olave's, Old Jury, City, and the friends and relatives named as "gossips" or godparents; also mentioning that "all the above mentioned six sons had the small pox in June & July 1736". William Sheppard was factor at Blackwell Hall in the City, the centre of the wool and cloth trade in England from medieval times until the 19th century; his wife, Sarah, was the daughter of Charles Slaughter (mentioned here), who was involved in the same business as Sheppard.

         A Scheme of the Solar System with the Orbits of the Planets and Comets Belonging Thereto Describ'd from Dr. Halley's Accurate Table.

      John Senex,, London, 1723 - Rare broadside illustrating the the orbits of the known comets Engraved print A large, impressively engraved broadside that illustrates the solar system and the orbits of known comets. The broadside is an expression of the general interest and curiosity produced by Newton's discoveries. The orbital details of each comet, taken from Halley's catalogue published in the Philosophical Transactions, are engraved along its orbital track. The explanatory text of the planets and their orbital information is present in four engraved panels of extended text at each corner of the broadside. Finally, there are quotations from Newton's Opticks engraved as circular panels and located within the planisphere. Oddly, the illustrations of Saturn and Jupiter are prominent in the broadside. In 1759, after the work of the Alexis-Claude Clairaut and Mme Nicole-Reine E B Lepaute, the recovery of the comet sighted in 1531, 1607, and 1682 and noted by Halley, was a sensation. Clairaut had been the first to recognise and factor in the influence of the gravitational attraction of the two massive planets on the orbits of comets, and proved it with an accurate prediction of the date of return; in the process he also provided confirmation of the veracity of Newton's mechanics and dynamics. This was unknown to Senex and the makers of the broadside when it was being engraved in 1712. This copy was printed on or before 1720, with John Senex's addess, coinciding with that given by Clifton. Few copies of the earliest issues survive; of those that do, several are erroneously attributed. Those after 1720 can be ignored (e.g., those impressions with the St Dunstan's Church address). The University of Bern has the single known copy of the 1713 impression. It is dated, below the plate line, and priced. The publishers' names, John Senex and John Maxwell, engraved in the legend coincide with the dates given by Clifton. Oxford and the BL have later reprints by Bowles.
