        The Compleat Fisherman. Being a Large and Particular Account of all the Several Ways of Fishing now Practiced in Europe, with Abundance of Curious Secrets and Niceties in the Art of Fishing…

      R. Hopkins,, London: 1724 - 12mo, period full calf, spine gilt, early rebacking with spine leather laid down, folding copper-engraved frontispiece, [6], 234 pp. Binding rubbed, and with a little wear, hinges are cracked, but still firm, lacking front free endpaper, pencil notation on pastedown, frontispiece creased and a little foxed, some light foxing and soiling; otherwise very good. This is a rather scarce fishing title that has come up at auction only a couple of times in the past 20 years. The frontispiece illustrates the different types of fishing, including net, pole, spear and trident. The author indicates that while there have been attempts to teach the art of fishing, knowledge of the art seems to have been one that is only available in individual experience. He promises to provide a 'short and sweet' instruction on the subject for the reader. Saunders covers the types of equipment, bait, types of fish, and location to do it right.

        [North America] To the Right Honourable John Lord Sommers...this Map of North America according to ye newest and most exact observations..

      London: "Printed for I. Bowles ... T. Bowles ... P. Overton", 1724. Copper-engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline. Inset view of a codfishery, ten inset maps of various harbors. An early issue of Moll's great "Codfish" map of North America. Herman Moll was, like many an emigré , a zealously patriotic Englishman and cartographical fighter in the globalization contest the European nations conducted from the 15th century into the 20th. Here in one of his superbly characteristic maps of North America, he fights with De L'Isle (the great French mapmaker of the period) about the respective territorial possessions of Britain and France. In contradistinction to De L'Isle's 1718 map, Moll's reduces French Louisiana to a region south of the Ohio River and gives Great Britain Labrador (as New Britain). The achievement of British dominance would be accomplished through trade, colonialization, war and piracy. Depicting one aspect of British success, Moll includes here a rather detailed depiction of the codfishing industry, including the making of cod liver oil. Throughout the 17th century, the British had the greatest number of fishing boats in the Grand Banks. Dried codfish was a staple of the British Navy, and a favorite throughout Europe. As naval supremacy requires good charts, this map has ten inset charts of important North and South America ports: from Boston to Cartagena. And finally, for the benefit perhaps of any would-be British privateer, Moll includes (as he did in his map of the West Indies) detailed information about the annual Spanish convoy that wound around the Gulf of Mexico picking up silver, gold and gems from South and Central America. Moll's "maps of North America and the Eastern seaboard must have played an important role in shaping the geographical perception of the Americas held by his contemporaries, emphasizing the untapped resources and the wealth of the colonies, and the opportunities for any that would make the passage" (Baynton-Williams). The present map was part of Herman Moll's magnificent folio work, A New and Compleat Atlas . Moll was the most important cartographer working in London during his era, a career that spanned over fifty years. His origins have been a source of scholarly debate; however, the prevailing opinion suggests that he hailed from the Hanseatic port city of Bremen, Germany. Joining a number of his countrymen, he fled the turmoil of the Scanian Wars for London, and in 1678 is first recorded as working there as an engraver for Moses Pitt on the production of the English Atlas . It was not long before Moll found himself as a charter member of London's most interesting social circle, which congregated at Jonathan's Coffee House at Number 20 Exchange Alley, Cornhill. It was at this establishment that speculators met to trade equities (most notoriously South Sea Company shares). Moll's coffeehouse circle included the scientist Robert Hooke, the archaeologist William Stuckley, the authors Jonathan Swift and Daniel Defoe, and the intellectually-gifted pirates William Dampier, Woodes Rogers and William Hacke. From these friends, Moll gained a great deal of privileged information that was later conveyed in his cartographic works, some appearing in the works of these same figures. Moll was highly astute, both politically and commercially, and he was consistently able to craft maps and atlases that appealed to the particular fancy of wealthy individual patrons, as well as the popular trends of the day. In many cases, his works are amongst the very finest maps of their subjects ever created with toponymy in the English language. This copy an early issue with the imprint including John Bowles at his Stocks Market address (i.e. his location between 1723 and 1727). Later issues include his address as "Mercers Hall" (between 1727 and 1731) and "at the Black Horse" (1732 and later). This early issue before the addition of John King to the imprint (circa 1726).

        La Perse, La Georgie, La Natolie Les Arabies, L'Egipte et le Cours du Nil ou se trouve aussi Le Pont Euxin La Mer Capienne La Mer Rouge et Les Golfes De Perse et D'Ormus.

      Paris, Danet, 1724. - Hand-coloured engraved map (570 x 425 mm). Matted. Scarce map of the Turkish Empire, extending from Asia Minor and the Red Sea to Persia and the Gulf of Ormuz, center of the Arabian Peninsula. This map appeared in a later edition of Nicolas De Fer's Atlas ou Recueil de Cartes Geographiques, first published in 1709. The work was essentially a composite atlas, with maps added and updated over the course of the next 30 years. The present example bears the imprint of Guillaume Danet, De Fer's son in law, who took De Fer's printing house following De Fer's death in 1720, along with his brother, Jacques-Francois Danet. We have located copies of the map dated as early as 1720, so it would appear that the map was not in the earliest editions of De Fer's atlas and may have been prepared as a replacement to a more general map ( L'Empire Des Turcs, En Europe, En Asie, et En Afrique.), published until 1715.

        Collected volume of ornament prints

      Augsburg: Jeremias Wolff, 1724. Broadsheets (378 x 301 mm). [58] leaves of engravings by various German engravers, mainly after Jean Bérain. Platemarks av. 34 x 28 mm. Condition: Fine impressions; old traces of horizontal folds to plates, occasional small marginal dampstain in last few plates, lower margin of last plate strengthened and verso stained, a few platemarks cut close or shaved, occasional pale stain in gutters, not touching images, one plate with a few tears in gutter. Stab-stitched in contemp. half green-stained parchment & speckled paper over pasteboards (rubbed). *** A collection of engraved designs for artists and craftsmen, consisting of skillful copies by German engravers of the finest French models of the newly fashionable "Régence" style of decoration, introduced by Jean Bérain I, court designer under Louis XIV for theater and festivals, gardens, and, after 1690, for all royal decorations. The engravings provide patterns for commodes, marquetry bureaux, vases, table lamps, candelabra, ceiling and wall decoration, doors, mirrors, clock mounts, wall paneling and a library decor. Most spectacular are 25 designs after Bérain for ceilings and walls, showing breathtakingly airy architectural structures, adorned with or built up from herms, caryatids, masks, interlaces, leafy arabesques, festoons, garlands, putti, exotic animals, gymnasts, actors, musicians, etc. Of the 58 prints in this volume, 45 reproduce French engravings by and/or after Bérain. These were copied from a collection of approximately 135 engravings of his designs assembled from various suites and published in Paris by Bérain's son-in-law Jacques Thuret in 1711. Bérain's "designs were in fashion during his entire career… They became models of ornamentation for the style Louis XIV during almost the entire length of that reign. Most of [his] efforts were directed toward the planning of ephemeral structures for the menus-plaisirs [the office of the court decorator], but he also produced engraved designs … for interiors, furniture, decorative objects, garden parterres, and funeral ceremonies. In these he developed complex, light, linear surface patterns related to antique wall decoration as it had been interpreted by Raphael. … He was widely influential, especially in Sweden and Germany" (Millard Collection I, pp. 32-33). Twelve further engravings in this volume reproduce designs of the wall decorator G. Feuillet, active in France ca. 1768 to 1782. A single engraving is by an Augsburg artist, the gold- and silversmith Abraham Drentwett. Prints were at the time the sole medium that allowed a broader public to view the exquisite pieces of furniture and decorative objects produced by designers like Bérain for the private hôtels of the highest ranks of the French aristocracy. The Augsburg art dealer and publisher Jeremias Wolff (1663-1724) was instrumental in disseminating in Germany the sensibility of the French Régence or "pre-Rococo," known locally as the "Laub und Bandlwerk" style, through his concerted publishing program of copies, by local South German engravers, of French ornament engravings ("Indem Jeremias Wolff Bérains Entwürfe nachstechen liess, und noch andere von ihm verlegte Zeichner ... dem französichen Vorbild nacheiferten, spielte er für die Verbreitung des modernen Bandlwerks in Deutschland eine wichtige Rolle" (Schwarz, p. 613). Distributed in parts (Lieferungen) of five plates each (cf. Weigert), Wolff's ornament prints were used as inspirations for their own designs by German goldsmiths, cabinetmakers, stucco-workers, wall painters, and other craftsmen, as well as by collectors and amateurs. Most are now as rare as the French originals. Present here are Parts 1-4, 6-9, and 12. The majority of the engravings in this volume are signed by the engraver. Those which do not identify the artist are after Bérain. All the Bérain and Feuillet prints are reverse copies of the French engravings. All but a few bear the imprint Ieremias Wolff excudit Aug. Vind. (the exceptions, noted below, have no imprint or signatures but clearly belong to the series). Contents: Pl. [1-5]) [BÉRAIN.] Part (Lieferung) 1: Five numbered plates engraved by Johann Christoph Hafner (1668-1754) [after Bérain], signed Iohann Christoph Haffner sculpsit. Plate 1 with part number No. 1, the rest numbered 2.-5. Plates 1-4 each show several objects (totaling 65 individual objects): clock mounts, clock fronts or medallions, candlesticks, urns, pitchers, and wall sconces; plate 5 is devoted to mostly military classical motifs (tridents, maces, shields, sheaths with arrows, helmets & headdresses, and a harp).

        Observationes anatomicae.

      Venice: apud Jo. Baptistam Recurti, 1724. Heavily Annotated by an 18th-Century Medical Scholar Santorini, Giovanni Domenico (1681-1737). Observationes anatomicae. 4to. [12], 250 [i.e., 252]pp. 3 folding engraved plates, the second plate signed by the artist Marcus Galli and the engraver Carlo Orsolini (ca. 1710-ca. 1780). Venice: Giovanni Battista Recurti, 1724. 286 x 208 mm. (uncut). Original carta rustica boards, spine repaired, slight wear. Minor dampstain in upper margins of plates and last approx. 15 leaves, otherwise very good to fine. Extensive scholarly annotations in a legible and attractive 18th-century hand in the margins of several leaves; note on Santorini?s death in the same hand on the front pastedown. First Edition. ?Santorini was generally acknowledged as the outstanding anatomist of his time, carefully dissecting and delineating many difficult and complex gross features of the human body, such as facial muscles involved in emotional expression, accessory pancreatic ducts, and duodenal papillae. His name has been given to some of these structures, such as the arytenoid cartilages (1724), the risorius muscle, and the plexus pudendalis venosus . . . His most important work was Observationes anatomicae, a valuable exposition of details of human anatomy? (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). The four major anatomical discoveries for which Santorini is known eponymically?Santorini?s cartilage (larynx), Santorini?s vein, Santorini?s duct (pancreas) and Santorini?s caruncula (pancreas / bile duct)?are described in this work. This copy of Santorini?s Observationes anatomicae bears numerous marginal annotations and corrections in Latin by an anonymous but remarkably erudite 18th-century medical scholar. Many of the notes are so long and detailed that they appear to represent an ongoing writing project?possibly in preparation for a future corrected edition, although no such edition was ever published (the text in the 1739 second edition of Santorini?s work is unchanged from the first edition). The manuscript notes appear on 34 pages throughout the text; the most extensive notes are on pages 4-5, 63, 98-99, 108, 147, 148-149 and 160. The notes on pages 98-99 are of particular interest in that they comment on (and possibly dispute) Santorini?s description of the laryngeal cartilages. Also remarkable are the notes on pp. 148-149, which comment on Santorini?s description of pulmonary circulation. The notes cite the works of over a dozen medical writers, including Eustachius, Morgagni, Falloppio, Fabricius, Heister, Valverde, Vesalius, Columbo, Cesalpino, Diemerbroeck, Bartholin and Estienne. A few of the notes are dated 1738. The inscription on the inside front cover gives the date of Santorini?s death as May 7, 1737 (?die Maij septima A.D. MDCCXXXVII?) and states that he died of a periodic intermittent fever (?febre periodica intermittente?). Garrison-Morton 392.

Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition ancienne la plus complète, et la dernière, avant celle réalisée en 1857 par Antoine de Latour (par aillleurs plus exhaustive).  "Ces deux volumes, qui font suite à la collection des poètes français publiés par Coustelier, se trouvent difficilement". Brunet, IV, 1071. Reliure en plein maroquin rouge de la fin du XIXe signée Belz-Niedrée. Dos à nerfs élégamment orné, roulette en queue ; titre et date dorés. Triple filet d'encadrement sur les plats. Riche frise intérieure. Tranches dorées. Mors fendus mais solidaires. Infimes frottements à certains coins, à un nerf. Malgré le défaut mentionné, très bel exemplaire, parfaitement frais et établi dans une reliure de maître. La poésie de Racan s'inscrit dans la continuité de celle de Desportes et de Ronsard. Malherbe, son maître qu'il rencontra à l'âge de 16 ans, lui reprochera sa nonchalence et ses trop grandes licences, mais le considérait comme son élève le plus doué ; en effet son écriture est plus fluide, mais aussi plus rustique. après la mort de Malherbe, Racan délaissa la plume durant 20 ans. Bien que désireux comme ses ancêtres de s'illustrer dans une carrière militaire, son naturel rêveur et distrait lui valut de nombreux déboires et il finit par s'en retirer. Il produisit en 1619, à l'âge de 30 ans, le poème qui allait le rendre célèbre : Les Bergeries, qui est son oeuvre la plus conséquente ; et à 24 ans, proposé par Richelieu, il se verra occupé un siège à l'Académie Française.

        Veue du Pont de Rialto de Venise

      Amsterdam 1724 - Esemplare tratto dal primo volume del "Nouveau Theatre de l'Italie" pubblicato ad Amsterdam nel 1704/5 e nel 1724, quale integrazione al progetto di Johannes Baleu, iniziato nel 1663, del grande "libro delle città", manchevole delle piante di gran parte della parte settentrionale della penisola. Il Blaeu, durante la sua lunga attività editoriale pubblica tre volumi sulle città italiane. Nel 1663 i primi tre, suddivisi in Stato della Chiesa, Roma e Regno di Napoli e Sicilia. Alla sua morte i suoi eredi danno alla luce altri due volumi datati 1682 incentrati sulle città del Piemonte e della Savoia, poi ristampati da altri editori nel 1693 e 1697. Il francese Pierre Mortier pubblica una ristampa nel 1704/5, intitolata "Nouveau Theatre de l’Italie". L’opera è in quattro volumi e comprende le lastre del Blaeu, ritoccate e modificate in piccola parte, integrate dall’aggiunta di numerose nuove mappe di proprio disegno, raffiguranti le città della parte settentrionale della penisola, racchiuse nel primo volume dell’opera. L’atlante del Mortier venne pubblicato con testo latino, francese ed olandese. La particolarità che differenzia le due edizioni di Blaeu e Mortier è rappresentata dal fatto che il testo non è al verso della singola mappa (che quindi è bianca nel retro), ma si trova all’inizio di ogni singolo volume. Il grande successo dell’opera diede origine ad un’ulteriore ristampa, praticamente identica, curata da R. Alberts ed edita nel 1724/5. Incisione in rame, in buono stato di conservazione. Bibliografia: Cremonini pp. 83-90. Dimensioni 565 460mm

Zu den Schwerpunkten, denen er große Bedeutung beimaß, gehörte auch die geschlechtliche Aufklärung und Unterweisung. Bereits in seiner Philalethie (Altona 1764) hatte er die Forderung an alle Eltern und Erzieher gestellt, den brennenden Fragen der Kinder nicht auszuweichen, sondern sie wahrheits- und kindgemäß zu beantworten. In seinem Elementarwerk gab er auch praktische Anregungen für die Unterweisung in Elternhaus und Schule. Daniel Chodowiecki schuf dafür die hier leider fehlenden Kupfertafeln. Mit dem Elementarwerk schuf Basedow das moderne Realienbuch: Es verband Text und Bild und Sachinformationen, die dialogisch erörtert wurden.

      - KVK & WorldCat (1 copy); not in NCC; STCN; for the atlases: P. v.d. Krogt & Koeman 43.231, 232, 233. Rare prospectus, in French (only one other copy located, at the Bibliothèque Mazarine in Paris), for Alberts's 1724 French, Latin and Dutch editions of Joan Blaeu's atlas of Italian cities, towns, and monuments, the atlas first published by Blaeu himself in Latin in 1663 as Theatrum civitatum admiranda Italiae, his greatest project after completion of his famous Atlas maior. Pieter Mortier in Amsterdam published expanded French and Dutch translations in 1704-1705, using and adding to Blaeu's original copper plates. With the present 1724 prospectus Alberts in the Hague invites subscriptions for new editions in all three languages, all appearing later that year. They once again used the Blaeu and Mortier plates. It gives a detailed 3-page account of the atlas and its various forms and prices, including a sample description of the city of Venice. The last printed page directs subscribers to Alberts and more than a hundred other booksellers, all named with their cities, in Holland, the rest of the Low Countries, England, Germany, France, Italy and Switzerland.The prospectus title-page mimics the planned title-page of the first volume of the French edition (on a reduced scale and with the engraved vignette instead of Alberts's engraved monogram), including the words "tome premier", but the prospectus text notes that it will be published in four volumes containing 275 double-page plates, and that Alberts will be accepting subscriptions from 27 March to 15 May 1724. He planned to print no more than 500 copies, namely 390 copies (130 in each language) on "papier ordinaire forme d'Atlas" for 50 guilders and 110 copies (38 in Latin and 36 in French and Dutch) on "grand papier forme d'Atlas" for 60 guilders. They were to be paid in five instalments, one in advance and the others on receipt of each of the four volumes. With a name on title-page, probably by the publisher to indicate the recipient. In fine condition, complete with the final blank leaf, with all deckles intact and never bound or sewn. It was formerly folded in quarters and has a tiny hole in the final blank leaf, where the folds cross. A rare prospectus for a great atlas, with valuable information about the atlas itself and about the international book trade of the time.

Pieter Mortier in Amsterdam published expanded French and Dutch translations in 1704-1705, using and adding to Blaeu's original copper plates. With the present 1724 prospectus Alberts in the Hague invites subscriptions for new editions in all three languages, all appearing later that year. They once again used the Blaeu and Mortier plates. It gives a detailed 3-page account of the atlas and its various forms and prices, including a sample description of the city of Venice. The last printed page directs subscribers to Alberts and more than a hundred other booksellers, all named with their cities, in Holland, the rest of the Low Countries, England, Germany, France, Italy and Switzerland.The prospectus title-page mimics the planned title-page of the first volume of the French edition (on a reduced scale and with the engraved vignette instead of Alberts's engraved monogram), including the words "tome premier", but the prospectus text notes that it will be published in four volumes containing 275 double-page plates, and that Alberts will be accepting subscriptions from 27 March to 15 May 1724. He planned to print no more than 500 copies, namely 390 copies (130 in each language) on "papier ordinaire forme d'Atlas" for 50 guilders and 110 copies (38 in Latin and 36 in French and Dutch) on "grand papier forme d'Atlas" for 60 guilders. They were to be paid in five instalments, one in advance and the others on receipt of each of the four volumes. With a name on title-page, probably by the publisher to indicate the recipient. In fine condition, complete with the final blank leaf, with all deckles intact and never bound or sewn. It was formerly folded in quarters and has a tiny hole in the final blank leaf, where the folds cross. A rare prospectus for a great atlas, with valuable information about the atlas itself and about the international book trade of the time.
