      Amsterdam: chez Paul Marret, 1724 [i.e., 1724 Amsterdam: chez Paul Marret, 1724 [i.e., 1724-1723]. . Half velin. VG+. "2 tomes in 1 vol.; 8º, (158x97mm.).- Vol. I: 320 p.; two colours printed title-page, engraved frontispiece, 1 folding map (Mughal Empire).- Vol. II: 358 p.; two colours printed title-page, engraved frontispiece, and 10 engravings -eight folding (two of them maps, one of Kashmir Kingdom); sign.: A-O12, A-P12.- // Half bound in velin and coral papers, with corners. Inked edges. The paper has very slight darkening. In tome 2, small tear on p. 245, down corner of p. 297 loss, and small hole in p. 307, l. 14, contemporary originated by the press.- // Prov.: Small stamp mark on title-page margin; handwritten initials  CWvI in lower title-page corner, which could well be a topographic classification, and not an ex-libris.- // François Bernier, who must be placed between the beaux-esprits reprimanded by Garasse, was an Epicurean philosopher, writer, traveller and disciple, but most especially a friend of Pierre Gassendi. After a three-year journey through Europe to avoid the ecclesiastic fate they wanted him to take on, he spent four years accompanying Gassendi when he fell ill. A little surprisingly, during this time he obtained, after only one quarter of the way through his studies in Montpellier between May and July 1652, authorization to practice medicine outside of France. After the death of Gassendi in 1655, he undertook a trip to the East - he had been to Syria and Palestine in 1654- but after going through Palestine and having problems in Egypt (he caught the plague) and not managing to work out a way to travel to Abyssinia), he changed direction and embarked on a trip to India, to the land of the Great Mogul -India: these territories are not be confused with the Great Mogul s-, where he spent the next ten years and Voyages provides an account of this time. Bernier arrived in Hindustan just after the emperor Shah Jahan (Chah-Jehan, in Bernier s writing)- who had the wonder known as the Taj Mahal built (Taje-Mehalle, in the Bernier s text) to honour his late wife- fell ill. So he witnessed the civil wars caused by the rebellion of his third son against his brother who was designated the successor, which ended with the victory of rebel, Aurangzeb, who would later become emperor for almost fifty years. He decided to stay on as court physician for over ten years and was the first European to describe Kashmir and the first to draw a map of that territory. The work is also largely structured as letters addressed to the intellectuals of progressive media, such as the La Mothe Le Vayer, Chapelain, Merveilles letters, together with one addressed to Colbert on the working of the precious metals trade and the causes for the decline of Asian nations. Voyages was originally published in 1670 in four volumes, two on the civil wars, Histoire de la derniere revolution des Etats du Gran Mogol y Evenemens particuliers, ou ce qui s est passé de plus considerable aprés la guerre pendant cinc ans, ou environ, dans les Etats du Gran Mogol, and two more, descriptive texts, which he entitled Suite des memoires du Sr Bernier sur l empire du Gran Mogol. The work was enormously successful: it was translated into English in 1671, into Dutch and German in 1672 and into Italian in 1675 (1). After Bernier s death, a printer from Amsterdam, Paul Marret, published it in 1699 and, although he reprinted it no less than five times, it is very difficult to find it complete all its engravings, possibly due to the success of two of them: the fold-out of the Court of the Great Mogul, used as an illustration in many subsequent works, and the map of Kashmir, created by Jan Janssonius for the short Dutch edition of Bernier s text, also printed by Marret in 1672.- // (1) The first exhaustive bibliography of Bernier can be found at p XXV-XLII of Bernier s travels English edition, edited and published by Archibald Constable, François Bernier: Travels in the Mogul Empire. Westminster: Archibald Constable, 1891.- // Refs.: Boucher de La Richarderie, V, 65-67; Brunet, I, p. 802. "

Er gilt als einer der intellektuellen Gründungsväter des Souveränitätsgedankens, der Naturrechtslehre und des Völkerrechts der Aufklärung. Grotius der als "Vater des Völkerrechts" bezeichnet wurde, zählt zu den wesentlichen Gründerpersönlichkeiten des internationalen Rechts. Viele seiner Gedanken finden sich aber auch bei den Thomisten Francisco de Vitoria und Francisco Suarez der Schule von Salamanca. Grotius verfasste neben anderen völkerrechtlichen Schriften dieses Werk (orig. De jure belli ac pacis, 1625 in Paris), das rasch große Verbreitung fand und bis zur Französischen Revolution das Standardwerk der Disziplin blieb. Size: 4° [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Henri Sauval (1623-1676), avocat au Parlement de Paris et familier de la société précieuse, cité dans le Grand dictionnaire des Prétieuses de Somaize (1660) sous le nom de Sidroaste, recueillit pendant la plus grande partie de sa vie des matériaux dans les archives de la ville de Paris. Longtemps après la publication de son Histoire et recherches des antiquités de la Ville de Paris, l'ouvrage est resté une source pour les historiens et pour les architectes ; Victor Hugo lui-même en cite des passages entiers dans Notre-Dame de Paris et dans Paris à vol d'oiseau. Sans l'opuscule Histoire des amours des rois de France. Bel exemplaire à grandes marges, quelques cahiers brunis uniformément, mors fendillés, coiffes frottées, quelques épidermures aux plats.

      Zufinden bey dem Autore und J. F. Gleditschens 1724-27, Leipzig - 375 x 242 mm. (14 1/2 x 9 1/2"). Eight volumes (of 10) bound in four volumes. FIRST EDITION. Contemporary sprinkled calf, covers with gilt-ruled border and gilt superlibros of Franz Ferdinand, Graf und Herr zu Sprinzenstein, raised bands, spines gilt in compartments with intricate lozenge centerpiece and filigree cornerpieces, two ivory morocco labels. WITH 447 FINELY ENGRAVED TECHNOLOGICAL PLATES. Ferguson "Bibliography of the History of Technology," pp. 45-46; Berlin Catalogue 1786, 1787, 1788. Small chips to head or tail of a couple of spines, joints and extremities a little rubbed, boards with a handful of small wormholes and half a dozen short abrasions, but still IN VERY FINE CONDITION: the bindings entirely sound, scarcely worn, and quite lustrous; the text entirely clean, fresh, and bright, with only insignificiant imperfections; and THE PLATES REMARKABLY CRISP AND RICHLY IMPRESSED. This is an especially attractive copy of an important series that is considered the most comprehensive illustrated survey of engineering and technology published up to the date of its issue, surpassing all predecessors in scope and scale. And considered apart from their scientific content, these volumes represent, as large format 18th century technological books, a visually impressive group of publications of very considerable interest.The present set contains the "Theatrum Machinarum Generale" (1724) with 71 plates illustrating a range of devices from weights and measures to water wheels; "Theatrum Machinarum Hydrotechnarum" (1724) with 51 plates of water-powered technology; "Theatrum Machinarum Hydraulicarum" volumes I (1724) and II (1725), with 107 plates illustrating very imaginative inventions, including one that looks like a "tilt-a-whirl" for cows; "Theatrum Machinarium [sic]" (1725) illustrating ways of lifting and hauling objects--from simple baskets to very complicated hoists--in 56 plates; "Theatrum Staticum Universale," parts I-IV (1726), with 57 plates that range from balancing poles for acrobats to scales and intricate mechanical toys; "Theatrum Pontificiale" (1726) with 60 plates demonstrating ways of crossing rivers, from rafts and stilts to sophisticated arched bridges; and "Theatrum Arithmetico-Geometricum" (1727) with 45 plates--including one with a volvelle--showing methods of calculating and measuring, from finger-counting and Napier rods to calculating machines and compasses. (Our set lacks the 1735 "Theatrum Machinarum Molarium" and the 1739 "Theatri Machinarum Supplementum," printed by a different publisher.) Norman remarks that each of the volumes is complete in itself and that "the volumes are more often found separately than together"; Ferguson notes that he has never seen a complete set. As a young man, Jacob Leupold (1674-1727) practised his father's trade of carpentry. He then studied mathematics and theology at the University of Wittenberg, and began to manufacture various machines and instruments used by scientists, doctors, and miners. He became a commissary of mines for the state of Prussia in 1725. These volumes were bound for Count Franz-Ferdinand von Sprinzenstein (1671-1728), and remained in the family (where they were obviously treated very well) until sold as lot 138 in the auction of the Graf Sprinzenstein Library, held by Gilhofer and Ranschburg in Lucerne in 1937.

These volumes were bound for Count Franz-Ferdinand von Sprinzenstein (1671-1728), and remained in the family (where they were obviously treated very well) until sold as lot 138 in the auction of the Graf Sprinzenstein Library, held by Gilhofer and Ranschburg in Lucerne in 1937.. 375 x 242 mm. (14 1/2 x 9 1/2"). Eight volumes (of 10) bound in four volumes. FIRST EDITION. Contemporary sprinkled calf, covers with gilt-ruled border and gilt superlibros of Franz Ferdinand, Graf und Herr zu Sprinzenstein, raised bands, spines gilt in compartments with intricate lozenge centerpiece and filigree cornerpieces, two ivory morocco labels. WITH 447 FINELY ENGRAVED TECHNOLOGICAL PLATES. Ferguson "Bibliography of the History of Technology," pp. 45-46; Berlin Catalogue 1786, 1787, 1788. Small chips to head or tail of a couple of spines, joints and extremities a little rubbed, boards with a handful of small wormholes and half a dozen short abrasions, but still IN VERY FINE CONDITION: the bindings entirely sound, scarcely worn, and quite lustrous; the text entirely clean, fresh, and bright, with only insignificiant imperfections; and THE PLATES REMARKABLY CRISP AND RICHLY IMPRESSED. This is an especially attractive copy of an important series that is considered the most comprehensive illustrated survey of engineering and technology published up to the date of its issue, surpassing all predecessors in scope and scale. And considered apart from their scientific content, these volumes represent, as large format 18th century technological books, a visually impressive group of publications of very considerable interest.The present set contains the "Theatrum Machinarum Generale" (1724) with 71 plates illustrating a range of devices from weights and measures to water wheels; "Theatrum Machinarum Hydrotechnarum" (1724) with 51 plates of water-powered technology; "Theatrum Machinarum Hydraulicarum" volumes I (1724) and II (1725), with 107 plates illustrating very imaginative inventions, including one that looks like a "tilt-a-whirl" for cows; "Theatrum Machinarium [sic]" (1725) illustrating ways of lifting and hauling objects--from simple baskets to very complicated hoists--in 56 plates; "Theatrum Staticum Universale," parts I-IV (1726), with 57 plates that range from balancing poles for acrobats to scales and intricate mechanical toys; "Theatrum Pontificiale" (1726) with 60 plates demonstrating ways of crossing rivers, from rafts and stilts to sophisticated arched bridges; and "Theatrum Arithmetico-Geometricum" (1727) with 45 plates--including one with a volvelle--showing methods of calculating and measuring, from finger-counting and Napier rods to calculating machines and compasses. (Our set lacks the 1735 "Theatrum Machinarum Molarium" and the 1739 "Theatri Machinarum Supplementum," printed by a different publisher.) Norman remarks that each of the volumes is complete in itself and that "the volumes are more often found separately than together"; Ferguson notes that he has never seen a complete set. As a young man, Jacob Leupold (1674-1727) practised his father's trade of carpentry. He then studied mathematics and theology at the University of Wittenberg, and began to manufacture various machines and instruments used by scientists, doctors, and miners. He became a commissary of mines for the state of Prussia in 1725. These volumes were bound for Count Franz-Ferdinand von Sprinzenstein (1671-1728), and remained in the family (where they were obviously treated very well) until sold as lot 138 in the auction of the Graf Sprinzenstein Library, held by Gilhofer and Ranschburg in Lucerne in 1937.

Als officer had Valentijn toegang tot V.O.C. documenten die hij compileerde tot een uitzonderlijke collectie kaarten. Valentijn"s werk is zo superieur aan eerdere kaarten dat de publicatie ervan, gezien het strenge geheimhoudingsbeleid van de V.O.C. met name voor wat betreft cartografisch materiaal, verrassend is.De kaart bestrijkt het gebied van de West-Kaap en Kaap de Goede Hoop tot net voorbij Algoa Bay in het oosten. De bewoonde gebieden zijn duidelijk gegraveerd, evenals bergen en rivieren met de namen van stammen en dorpen. De inzet kaart van Kaapstad en Vaalsbaai (False Bay) geeft een schat aan informatie, waaronder de namen en locaties van individuele boeren. Ook wegen en topografie zijn aangegeven.Deze invloedrijke kaart werd gedurende de 18de-eeuw door andere cartografen meermaals gebruikt als voorbeeld voor andere kaarten.Prijs: € 1.250,-.

        BESCHRYVING VAN DE KAAP DER GOEDE HOOPE

      Dordrecht, Johannes van Braam 1724-1726. ISBN or SBN Number: n/a. Important and rare volume by an author, who had access to the archives and source documents of the VOC when he compiled this report. This volume contains matters relating to the Cape, Madagascar and Mauritius. The first chapter deals with the discovery and early European arrivals, as well as outlying areas. The next describes the Company Gardens, botanical matters as well as the administrative structure of the settlement, and lists of administrative personnel at the Cape. The next handles the free burghers and burghers and health matters. The fourth chapter contains the first printed version of Governor van der Stel's 1685 journey to Namaqualand, as well as the journal of Landrost Starrenburg's trek up north in 1705. The next chapter deals with the Hottentots, their economy and lifestyle, as well as a vocabulary of their language. The next chapter is once more dealing with early European interaction at the Cape until the then present time. Included is a short description of Mascarene islands. A full chapter is devoted to Mauritius, its discovery, colonisation, fauna and flora. The last chapter once more deals with the Cape and its religious structures. A valuable snapshot of early 18th century Cape - some seventy years after the arrival of Europeans., 160 pp with 10 text illustrations (one full page and one double page) full folding map of the Cape 58 x 48 cm, full folding map of Mauritius, as well as a further four folding sketch maps and a single page map The book has been re-bound in plain brown linen and endpapers have been repaired. Generally in good, clean condition, especially folding plates and maps, but one major defect is the presence of (NOT LIVE) bookworm damage between pp 117-160 in the bottom right-hand corner of the textblock. Most tunneling is minimal, but some tracks are up to 50 mm long - none obliterating any significant amount of text. The maps illustrations are not affected. All books are shipped from South Africa.

"Bien qu'anonyme, cet ouvrage est reconnu pour être de F. Colonna (.). Un des intérêts majeurs de ce livre est de comporter une clef capitale pour déchiffrer les 'Archidoxes' de Paracelse. Avant sa mort, il donna ce dixième livre qu'il voulait supprimer et qui est en quelque manière la clef de ses autres livres. Inspiré par le Grand Art, Colonna nous délivre ici un témoignage majeur autant par la richesse de son contenu que par la rigueur de ses textes" (Ed. Massanne, 2003). Philosophe hermétique, mathématicien et savant réputé, Francesco Maria Pompeo Colonna (Rome, 1649 - Paris, 1726) est l'un des plus savants alchimistes de son temps.

Garrison-M. 5576 (EA. 1718); nicht bei Blake, Waller, Wellcome. - Seltene zweite Ausgabe dieses beliebten chirurgischen Handbuchs. „ Mit diesem Werk betrat Heister in zweifacher Hinsicht Neuland. Zum einen hat sich vorher, zumindest in Deutschland, kein an einer Universität ausgebildeter Arzt mit der Chirurgie beschäftigt; die Chirurgie war ausschließlich Sache der zur Zunft der Bader und Barbiere gehördenden Handwerkschirurgen. Zum anderen wurden wissenschaftliche Bücher damals nicht in deutscher Sprache geschrieben. An diesen beiden Punkten lässt sich auch die enorme Bedeutung aufzeigen, die Heister für die Chirurgie gehabt hat. Das Buch erschien auch in einer vereinfachten Ausgabe für Wundärzte und Hebammen. Die zahlreichen Zeichnungen sind wahrscheinlich von Heister selbst, er hatte schon als Kind das Zeichnen gründlich gelernt, und weil er mit den Kupferstichen in seinen ersten Büchern nicht zufrieden war, hat er als Professor in Altdorf noch das Kupferstechen gelernt. Es wurde in viele Sprachen übersetzt, darunter Japanisch. Seine letzte Auflage erlebte es in Deutschland 1779, also 60 Jahre nach Erscheinen der Erstauflage. Heister gilt aufgrund dieses Werkes als der Begründer der wissenschaftlichen Chirurgie in Deutschland.“ (Wikipedia.) - "The most popular surgical text of the 18th century" (GM).
