Printer's device on title page. Decorative head-, and tailpieces.

        A New and Exact Plan of Ye City of London and Suburbs thereof, With the addition of the New Buildings, Churches &c. to this present Year 1723 (Not extant in any other,) Laid down in such a method that in an Instant, may easily be found any Place contain'd therein.

      Printed & Sold by Tho: Bowles next to the Chapter-house St. Paul?Äôs Church Yard,, London, 1723 - A city of meat eaters 620 by 1255mm. (24.5 by 49.5 inches). Engraved plan on three sheets joined, original outline hand-colour, a few marks and a few small tears skilfully repaired. Howgego 63 intermediate state between 3 and 3a. 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.The present plan is an intermediate state between Howgego 63 (3) and (3a). The date in the title is the same as state 3, however, an extra sheet has been added to the extend the plan to the east to include St Dunstan and Stepney; yet the plan does not include the areas of Mile End and Limehouse present in state 3a.Scale: 11 inches to 1 statute mile.

        The History of the Grecian War: in eight books

      London: by B. Motte; for D. Brown; D. Midwinter; B. Lintott; W. Taylor; and W. and J. Innys and B. Cowse,, 1723. Written by Thucydides. Faithfully translated from the original by Thomas Hobbes of Malmsbury. With maps describing the country. The third edition, corrected and amended. In two volumes. 2 volumes, octavo (197 × 122 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, double gilt rules, red morocco labels to style. With 2 engraved folding maps and 3 engraved plates, of which 2 are folding. Engraved bookplates of William Hanbury (1704-1768), of Kelmarsh, Northants, and his note of acquisition dated 25 Oct 1741. Some restoration to joints and extremities, pale dampstaining at beginning of vol. I, a good copy. Hobbes's translation of Thucydides, taken (unlike the only existing English version at the time) directly from the Greek, was first published in 1629. "Forty years later, in Vita Carmine Expressa, he said that he had written it so that his contemporaries might learn from the fate of Athenian democracy how much wiser one man is than the mass of men" (Macdonald & Hargreaves). The bibliography calls for a frontispiece portrait of Hobbes, but none was apparently ever inserted in this copy, nor does ESTC call for one.

Questo volume rappresenta una delle opere più celebri sulle fortificazioni: venne pubblicato in un periodo cruciale della storia dell?ingegneria militare, nel quale Sebastien de Vauban (1633-1707), militare e ingegnere francese, commissario generale delle fortificazioni di Luigi XIV, rivoluzionò l?arte della fortificazione e le tecniche di assedio, trasformando molte delle città della Francia settentrionale e dei Paesi Bassi; innovò il sistema del baluardo e della difesa bastionata e costruì ex novo più di 30 roccaforti (LaRochelle, St.-Malo). L?opera è senza dubbio una delle più complete nel suo genere. Tra le bellissime tavole, notevoli: la tav. 113 con la veduta di Heildelberg, in Germania, la tav. 141 con la veduta di Nizza, in Francia, la tav. 152 con la veduta di Montmélian, antica piazzaforte dei Savoia, in Francia, la tav. 162 con la veduta di Fontarrabie ou Hondarribia, nei paesi baschi, in Spagna, la tav. 172 con il profilo di Barcellona in Spagna, la tav. 186 con la fortezza di Mongast in Ungheria, la tav. 187 con la bellissima veduta della città e del porto di Costantinopoli.

        The Antiquities of Berkshire. With A large Appendix of many Valuable Original Papers, Pedigrees of the most considerable Families in the said County, and a particular Account of the Castle, College, and Town of Windsor.

      London, for W. Mears, and J. Hooke, 1723 - 3 volumes, octavo. Contemporary sprinkled calf, dark green morocco numbering and lettering pieces, gilt rules, covers panelled in gilt, red sprinkled edges. Bookplates of Joshua Smith MP, Stoke Park, Erlestoke, Wiltshire; later library shelfmarks on front pastedowns. A little skilful repair to extremities, an excellent set. Large folding county map incorporating view of Windsor Castle as frontispiece, the map coloured in outline; genealogical tables in text, of which 11 are folding; engraved vignette on vol. III, Zz1 recto; woodcut title vignettes and tailpieces. The first county history of Berkshire. The astrologer and antiquary Elias Ashmole (1617–1692) was appointed to the College of Arms as Windsor Herald of Arms in Ordinary in 1660. In 1667, he began collecting information for this book, but it was not to be published until after his death. Although well suited to the role and highly active in it, Ashmole resigned as Windsor herald in 1675, evidently disillusioned by factional strife within the college, and, despite pressure from many in high places, refused to take heraldic office of any kind thereafter. First published in 1719, this is the second edition; a third was published at Reading in 1736. Sir Walter Scott used Ashmole's lengthy account of the murder of Amy Robsart, the Earl of Leicester's secret wife, as the primary source for his Elizabethan novel Kenilworth.

        The small gorge at Tivoli (oil painting)

      - Henri Joseph Boichard (Versailles, 1723-1850) The small gorge at Tivoli Oil on canvas Canvas size: 28 ½" x 36" Frame size: 37 1/8" x 44 5/8" Signed and dated l.l.: Boichard 1824 Inscribed verso: Boichard à Bourges Provenance: Private collection Essen, Germany Although Henri Joseph Boichard (1723-1850) never studied with Pierre-Henri de Valenciennes (1750-1819), in this work he has clearly absorbed the lessons that the older artist imparted to his students and Salon visitors. The perspective is defined by the counter-play of light and shadow across the picture plane, and by the meandering torrent of water that cascades down the gorge from the right background, then angles across the center of the composition. Two classical figures, a herder and a maiden, steer their goats, sheep and cows across the Aniene River in the foreground. Above them can be seen a figure in silhouette pointing to the majestic falls above him. Boichard's view of the gorge at Tivoli is characteristic of French landscape painting at the turn of the nineteenth century and very much in the tradition of the above mentioned Valenciennes, but also artists such as Hubert Robert (1733-1808) and Claude-Joseph Vernet (1714-1789). The Italian landscape and particularly its ruins was popular subject matter for such French artists, many of whom traveled to Italy to experience the ancient sights firsthand. This was the era of the Grand Tour when travel throughout Europe became more prevalent and paintings of such famous locales as Tivoli were immensely popular and readily sold to tourists. Tivoli is in the Monti Tiburtini hills east of Rome and became a place of resort because of its fresh air and dramatic scenery. The Emperor Hadrian used to hunt in these hills and built his villa on the plains beneath. The Aniene River cut a deep gorge and used to have fierce waterfalls. A small circular Temple of Vesta was built here (probably in the second century BC). In Boichard's oil painting it is probable that the scene shown is just below the Temple of Vesta in what was later to become the park of Villa Gregoriana. The oil was completed just two years before the disastrous floods of 1826 which necessitated the reclamation of the old bed of the River Aniene and which resulted in the founding of the public park, commissioned by Pope Gregory XVI and founded in 1835. Henri Joseph Boichard was a pupil of Baron Jean-Baptiste Regnault and became professor of drawing at the Collèges de Bourges. It was during his time at Bourges that he completed this work.

Avec un Traite des Horloges Elementaires. Nouvelle Edition, revue, corrigee & augmentee.

      Claude Jombert,, Paris, 1723 - Opera in quattro volumi in 8° (cm. 20 x 13), legatura coeva in pelle, stemma alle armi della famiglia De Rochas D’Aiglun, decorato in oro ai piatti, titolo al tassello al dorso con nervi a vista e fregi dorati, tagli colorati in rosso, sguardie marmorate, ex - libris della stessa casata, bianca, frontespizi, prefazioni, (18) 460 (20) pp. al primo volume, (10) 462 (14) pp. al secondo, (6) 482 (16) pp. al terzo, (10) 446 (8) pp. al quarto tomo; 133 tavole da incisione su rame, numerate e distribuite nei quattro tomi (la maggior parte di Berey ed alcune di Chevalier) di cui 9 ripiegate; testatine, capilettera e finalini ornati in xilografia, segnalibri in seta. Magnifica edizione dell’opera princeps di Ozanam (la prima è del 1694 in soli due volumi), è una summa delle conoscenze matematiche dell'epoca. I vari trattati sono sviluppati con grande accuratezza e somma cura, e sono completati da innumerevoli figure e illustrazioni tecniche. Il primo volume tratta di aritmetica, geometria, musica, e ottica, il secondo di gnomonica, cosmografia e meccanica, il terzo di pirotecnia e fisica nella prima parte, mentre la seconda, che ha proprio occhiello e prefazione, è dedicata allo studio di vari tipi di orologi, con teorie basate sugli studi dell'"orologio elementare" di Domenico Martinelli. Il quarto volume aggiunge al titolo principale "Traite des Phosphores Naturels & Artificiels, & des Lampes Perpetuelles. Dissertation Physique & Chimique, avec l'explication des Tours de Gibeciere, de Gobelets, & autres recreatifs & divertissans", e tratta appunto di fisica, chimica, lampade e teorie empiriche varie. Importante documento dei progressi matematici del XVII e XVIII secolo che, con esperimenti anche divertenti, si occupa tra l'altro di trucchi, fuochi d'artificio, acustica, camera oscura, calendari, magnetismo, giochi con specchi e numeri, lanterna magica, oltre ad ogni tipo di studio sugli orologi, il tutto corredato da un ricchissimo ed esaustivo apparato iconografico. La ricchezza e completezza dei trattati (amplissimi e particolareggiati) e l’esposizione piana e precisa ne fanno un caposaldo nel genere trattato. Raro, ed ancor più raro da reperirsi nello stato in cui è qui presentato, col valore aggiunto dell’appartenenza alla biblioteca personale di Albert De Rochas D’Aiglun, erudito scienziato del IX secolo, colonnello, amministratore della Scuola politecnica, dotto grecista, traduttore di antichi testi di scienze militari e arti meccaniche che consacrò poi la sua attività alle ricerche psichiche, con esperienze ed esposizioni teoriche. Opera in eccellenti condizioni di conservazione, con fresca impressione e buoni margini, legatura robusta, carta ancor chiara e greve.

Palau 354791, 354792, 105049. - Vollständige Sammlung der von Gonzalez de Barcia herausgegebenen 3 Hauptwerke. - Garcilaso de la Vega (1539-1619), in Cuzco geborener Sohn des Conqujstadore Sebastian Garcilaso de la Vega, war einer der wichtigsten Chronisten der Geschichte der Inkas sowie der Eroberung Südamerikas durch die Spanier. Nach dem Tode seines Vaters 1560 kam er nach Spanien, um seine Vorrechte als Sohn eines Conquistadoren einzufordern. Aus politischen Gründen wurden ihm die Privilegien verwehrt. Er kehrte nicht mehr nach Peru zurück, beschaffte sich aber Quellen und Unterlagen und schrieb aus der eigenen Erinnerung zwischen 1605 und 1617 drei Werke zur Geschichte Südamerikas aus der Sicht der Inka. - Gonzalez de Barcia (1673-1723) gilt in der neueren Forschung als der Begründer der modernen Amerikanistik. Er gab, neben seinen vielfältigen Aufgaben am Spanischen Hof, er war einer der Gründer der königlichen Akademie, eine Reihe von historischen Texten zur Geschichte der spanischen Eroberungen heraus, die im 18. Jahrhundert nur schwer, oder gar nicht zugänglich waren. Gonzalez de Barcia editierte bis 1737 total 13 historische Textsammlungen. (Vgl. Jonathan Earl Carlyon: Andrés González de Barcía and the creation of the colonial Spanish American, Toronto 2005). - Vereinzelt leicht fleckig. Vorsätze mit Leimschatten. Einbände etwas berieben. Band 4 mit angerissenem Kapital. - Selten. - Complete collection of Gonzalez de Barcia’s three edited chief works - Garcilaso de la Vega (1539-1619),was born as the son of the conquistador Sebastian Garcilaso de la Vega in Cuzco and was one of the most important chronicler of the history of the Incas and the conquest of South America by the Spaniards. After his father‘s death in 1560, he returned to Spain to claim his privileges as son of a conquistador, which he did not receive for political reasons (being a son of an Incan princess). He never returned to Peru but collected information and sources as to write three books between 1605 and 1617 on the history of South America as seen by the Incas. - Gonzalez de Barcia (1673-1743) is considered as the first Americanist. Besides his different duties in the Royal court - he was one of the founding members of the Real Academia Española - he published the most important historical works on the conquest of New World by the Spaniards, many of which were already rare in the 18th century. Up to 1737 Gonzalez de Barcia edited 13 compilations of historical texts. (Comp. Jonathan Earl Carlyon: Andrés González de Barcía and the creation of the colonial Spanish American, Toronto 2005). Sporadically lightly stained. Endpapers with shadows of glue. Bindings lightly worn.

        Dreiviertelfigur nach links an der Staffelei sitzend.

      . Schabkunstblatt von W. Baillie (1723-1792), nach einem Selbstbildnis, auf Bütten. 35,8:25,5 cm. Guter Abdruck mit Rändchen um die Plattenkante, etwas stockfleckig. Literatur: Nagler Monogr. Bd. V, 1552, 4; Andresen (Baillie) 17.. Sofonisba Anguissola war die erste Malerin der Renaissance, die europäische Berühmtheit erlangte. Sie wurde von ihrem Vater schon früh zu dem Porträtmaler B. Campi (1522-1591) geschickt. 1549 setzte Sofonisba ihr Studium bei B. Gatti, genannt Il Sojaro (um 1495 - um 1575) fort und wurde nachfolgend eine gefragte Porträtistin, die sich neben ihren männlichen Kollegen behaupten konnte. 1559 weilte sie am Hof des Vizekönigs Duca di Sessa in Mailand, von dort aus ging sie im darauffolgenden Jahr nach Madrid an den königlichen Hof. Dort wurde sie die Hofdame und Zeichenlehrerin der erst 14jährigen Isabella von Valois, der Gattin Philipp II. Nach deren frühem Tod im Jahr 1568 diente sie für wenige Jahre ihrer Nachfolgerin, der Erzherzogin Anna von Österreich. Um 1573 heiratete Sofonisba Fabrizio von Moncada, den Bruder des Prinzen von Paterno auf Sizilien. Nach dessen Tod 1578 vermählte sie sich ein Jahr später erneut, in Genua den adeligen Schiffskapitän Orazio Lomellino, mit dem sie zunächst in dessen Heimatstadt Genua und ab etwa 1615 in Palermo lebte. Beziehungen zu Michelangelo und Vasari lassen früh auf die Bedeutung schließen, die ihrem Werk beigemessen wurde.

        Primera [-tercera] parte de los viente I un libros rituales I Monarchia Indiana, con el origen y guerras, de los Indios Ocidentales de sus poblaciones, descubrimiento, conquista, conversion y otras cosas maravillosas de la mesma tierra

      Madrid: Franco, 1723. Three volumes, folio, with engraved titles and a folding map with original handcolouring; neat old library stamps in several places; a handsome set in eighteenth-century Spanish polished marbled calf, double crimson morocco spine labels. With the map in rare original colour. This is the second and best edition of Torquemada's book, with the important map in rare and handsome original colour. This map (which did not appear in the 1615 Seville edition) centres on the Pacific, and shows the Chinese coast, the Philippines, Solomons, New Guinea and "Tierra Austral" to the west and Mexico and South America to the east. It is more often seen uncoloured. The preface mentions the extreme rarity of the first edition - only three copies were known in Madrid in 1723 - and explains that most copies had apparently been lost in a shipwreck, presumably en route to Mexico. The book is especially important in the literature of Pacific exploration because of Torquemada's account of Quiros' voyage of 1605, in which he sailed from Callao to locate the fabled Southern Continent. The earliest extensive description of the expedition to be printed, this remained the only reliable source available to navigators, geographers and historians until the nineteenth century. Celsus Kelly ("The narrative of Pedro Fernandez de Quirós" in Historical Studies, Australia and New Zealand IX/34, May 1960) has shown that Torquemada had access to Quiros' own account of the voyage as well as to the journal of Munilla, the commissary of the Franciscans who was also on the voyage. In fact Torquemada probably met Quiros in Mexico City in 1607, and again in Madrid in 1613. Kelly shows too that Torquemada probably also interviewed two other members of the expedition, the ensign Pedro López de Sojo and the sergeant Pedro García de Lumbreras. Torquemada's book is important for many other reasons, not least for its account of Legazpi's expedition to the Philippines (see Retana, 226). Hill describes the book as the 'key work on the early history of Spanish North America, particularly Mexico, the Southwest and California… the primary source of Vizcaíno's 1596 and 1602 expeditions and voyage of discovery to California. It contains Father Antonio de la Ascensión's letter which relates to Vizcaíno's voyage during which most of the bays, headlands and rivers, including San Diego, were renamed. Torquemada also deals at length with Juan de Oñate's conquest of New Mexico, and briefly with the expeditions of Coronado, Alarcón, Espizo and Niza… The Mexican historian and statesman Lucas Alamán called Torquemada the Livy of New Spain… '(Hill). The section of Torquemada's book dealing with the Vizcaíno expedition was published as a separate volume by the Book Club of California in 1933.

      Amsterdam: Sumptibus Societatis, 1723. Amsterdam: Sumptibus Societatis, 1723. <p>Newton, Isaac (1642-1727). Philosophiae naturalis principia mathematica. 4to. [28], 484, [20], 107pp. 3 folding engraved plates. Amsterdam: sumptibus Societatis, 1723. 235 x 182 mm. Modern crushed morocco, gilt-lettered spine. Minor marginal worming, light dampstaining on several leaves, but very good. </p><p>Second Amsterdam edition. Three authorized editions of Newton&#39;s Principia mathematica were issued during his lifetime, but demand for the work was so great on the Continent that two unauthorized reprints were also published in Amsterdam in 1714 and 1723. "These Amsterdam reprints were a major undertaking, requiring the cutting of new wood-blocks for the figures and a new setting of type. The second reprint (1723) contains not only four tracts by Newton and W. Jones&#39;s &#39;Praefatio Editoris,&#39; but also extracts from four letters of Newton&#39;s. These tracts are: De analysi per aequationes infinitas (first published by Jones in 1711), De quadratura curvarum and Enumeratio linearum tertii ordinis (published with the Opticks in 1704 and the Optice in 1706, but eliminated from the second English edition of the Opticks in 1717/18), and the Methodus differentialis. But this whole collection-the four tracts, the extracts from Newton&#39;s letters, and Jones&#39;s Praefatio-was merely a reprint, without alteration, of a collection that was first published as a small book in London in 1711. It was reissued separately in Amsterdam in 1723 as well as being included as a supplement to the reprint of the Principia. How curious indeed that Newton&#39;s long-cherished plan of publishing De quadratura together with the Principia should have been realized only in this presumably unauthorized Amsterdam reprint of 1723!"

The plates are of particular interest and include many signed by Hogarth which form part of his early work. They illustrate antiquities, objets d'art, and scenes of the eastern life.
