WARBURTON, John, Joseph BLAND, and Paylor SMYTHE
London, 1724. London,, 1724.. With the Roads, Rivers, Sea Coasts &c. Actually Surveyed. Large hand-coloured engraved map on seven sheets, dissected and mounted on linen, subscriber's coats-of-arms to borders, folding into red cloth slipcase, with publisher's label of James Wyld, rubbed. Following the commercial success of his maps of Northumberland (c1716) and Yorkshire (c1720), Warburton announced his intention to publish maps of all the counties in England and Wales, though in many cases combining several counties on one map. The marketing for his next map, (that of Middlesex, Essex and Hertfordshire) followed familiar lines and on 25th October 1720, Warburton announced that "Proposals are given out and Subscriptions taken in for Surveying and Publishing the Counties of Middlesex (cum London) Essex and Hertfordshire...which it is hoped will be as agreeable to the Nobility and Gentry that have Seats of Inheritance therein, as to those in the Counties already Survey'd, and that their Approbation of the Undertaking will be shown by a ready Compliance in sending their Coats of Arms and Subscription monies viz 16s 6p..." By February 1723 Warburton was able to announce the progress of the surveys and the acceptance of over 300 subscribers for their coats-of-arms to be inserted on the map. A further announcement on 2nd November 1723 stated that the surveyor Paylor Smyth had completed his survey,though it was over a year before Warburton was able to announce the publication of the map which now included "in the margin 724 Coats of Arms, belonging to the Families that have Seats … [Click Below for Full Description]

[bound with: IBID] Scotland delineated or Thirty Six New and correct Maps of North Britain [and: IBID] A set of Twenty New and Correct Maps of Ireland. Together three works bound in one volume. 4to (215 by 178mm), 106 engraved general, regional and county maps, in fine contemporary outline colour, contemporary calf, a few maps shaved at upper and lower margins, corners of binding worn, rebacked retaining original spine. The first work with letterpress title incorporating index, 50 engraved maps; the second with letterpress title incorporating index, and 36 engraved maps; the third with letterpress title incorporating index, and 20 engraved maps (one folding and including a table) It is rare to find the three atlases bound together. The Scotland atlas is the first English atlas of that country. The commercial success of Moll's atlas of England and Wales inevitably led to thoughts of a comparable volume on Scotland. Whilst Blaeu's landmark atlas of 1654 had been a great success it was not only seventy years out of date but primarily something for the library, and it was therefore an appropriate time to publish a new and relatively portable work. Moll's atlas comprises two general maps and thirty four of the shires of similar size to the English volume and was first published in 1725. A note on the reverse of the title-page draws attention to the contributions of Timothy Pont, Robert Gordon, and Jo … [Click Below for Full Description]

François Joseph Lagrange-Chancel
The Hague / A La Haye: Chez Chrles Le Vier. Condition: Very Good. First printing, 1724. 8vo, bound in full later 18th century maroon morocco gilt, with leather bookplate of well known American book collector Robert Hoe, whose collection was sold at auction in 1912, pp. (8) 157 (3), a number of small vignette copperplates. Very good clean copy. Lagrange-Chancel was heralded as a dramatist who would be a worthy successor to Racinet, when he published a series of odes called the Philippiques in 1720, accusing Philip the Duke of Orleans of terrible crimes including incest with his own daughter. Consequently he was thrown into jail, and it was while he was incarcerated that the current volume was published. He escaped, heading to Spain, Sardinia and Italy, only returning to France upon the death of the duke. His literary career never recovered. The catalogue of Robert Hoe's library features a number of books by LaGrange-Chancel but notably not this title. [Attributes: First Edition]

BUDGEN, Richard
London, 1724. DescriptionSurveyed by Richard Budgen and engraved by John Senex on six sheets, three of 660 x 495 mm, and three of 335 x 495 mm, on a scale of 3/4 inch to 1 mile and published in original outline colour by H. Lintot in London in c1730, the second edition. Bound in half calf, folio. A few minor imperfections otherwise an excellent example of this extremely rare survey. NotesOne of the outstanding county surveys of the early eighteenth century, an important and influential period in English regional cartography, despite the criticism of the noted antiquarian Richard Gough, who censured the map as "either correct nor well executed". This however was in 1780 and Yeakell and Gardner had just announced their "Proposals" for their "Great Survey" under the patronage of the influential Duke of Richmond which may well have influenced Gough's view. In spite of its shortcomings the map was a landmark in Sussex history, the first in the county to be oriented to true north and to indicate magnetic variation, the first to have parallels and meridians drawn across the map, the first to rely solely on the statute mile of 1760 yards, after Ogilby's survey of 1675, and the first to show the towns ichnographically. It was engraved on six sheets of different sizes, three full sheets being used for the map with three half-sheets being used for the decorative detail. The latter comprises the title cartouche, the dedication cartouche, prospects of Lewes and Chichester with their ichnography, and the coats-of-arms of sixteen of the local nobility. There are 148 subscribers' arms whic … [Click Below for Full Description]

W�rtemberg, 1724. Würtemberg,, 1724.. [North equatorial pole to equator WITH;] Coniglobium hoc geminu ad Catalogum Fixaru celeberrimoru accurate delineavit Astrophilisq. primu in hac forma usui dedit. M. Johannes Ludovicus Andrae. Past Wurtembergensis Ao. 1724 [South equatorial pole to equator]. A pair of engraved star charts of the northern and southern hemispheres on a conical projection, joined. Johann Ludwig Andreae (1667-1725) was born in Messtetten, Würtemburg, and followed his priest father into Holy Orders in Tübingen. In 1711, he moved to Esslingen where he began to make globes. His work was part of the early eighteenth century explosion of globemaking in Germany, centred particularly around Nuremburg and makers such as Georg Eimmert and Johann Baptist Homann. He is known to have produced globes of between five and ten inches in diameter, having the construction carried out in the commercial centre of Nuremburg; he also appears to have been assisted in some way by the Rector of the Egidian Gymnasium, Samuel Farber (1657-1716), whose name appears on one globe. On some of his output, presumably as a commercial incentive, Andreae left a blank cartouche to be filled in according to the purchaser's wishes. He was succeeded by his mathematician son Johann Phillipp (c.1700-after 1757). Andreae is only known to have produced two celestial broadsheets; the present charts. They are centred on the equatorial poles using a polar equidistant projection with geocentric orientation. The maps are influenced by Coronelli and could be bent into cones and viewed from the inside to … [Click Below for Full Description]

CASTEL (Louis-Bertrand).
A Paris, chez André Cailleau, 1724. 2 volumes in-12. 3ff. 621pp. 1f. + 1f. 619pp. Plein veau, dos à nerfs ornés, pièces de titre et de tomaison en maroquin havane, tranches peintes (reliure de l'époque, charnières fendillées, petits accrocs aux coiffes). Edition Originale. Le jésuite et mathématicien Louis Bertrand Castel (1688-1757), qui s'est surtout fait connaître par ses travaux en optique et son fameux "clavecin oculaire", fut aussi l'un des premiers détracteurs français de Newton. Cet ouvrage rare, qui est sa première publication, "expose son système de la pesanteur, système dans lequel tout dépend de deux principes: la gravité des corps, qui les fait tendre sans cesse au repos, et l'action des esprits, qui rétablit sans cesse les mouvements" (Larousse, qui remarque que les ouvrages de l'auteur sont remplis d'idées "quelquefois bizarres, mais souvent profondes et originales"). Intéressante note manuscrite à la page 439 du second volume: "Ce n'est point du feu absorbé que le plomb calciné doit son excès de pesanteur sur le plomb naturel; voyez le détail des découvertes de la nouvelle chymie pneumatique et celles de Lavoisier sur la décomposition de l'air et la chymie de Fourcroy". On sait que l'augmentation de poids du plomb calciné, remarquée dès 1630 par Jean Rey, fut le premier indice de l'existence de l'oxygène démontrée en 1789 par Lavoisier. Traces de manipulation. Bon exemplaire. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

SEVERINO, Marcus Aurelius
1724. Marcus Aurelius Severino was a 17th-century Italian surgeon who published a number of works on human anatomy and surgical procedures. His works covered reports on dysentery, burns, lithotomy, carcinomas, gangrene, skull fractures, and his means of treating these injuries and diseases. One of Severino's most notable works, however, was his work dedicated to the identifying and treating abscesses. This work, 'de Recondita Abscessuum' includes 15 black and white illustrations depicting these lesions, tumors, and skin growths. Severino was a proponent of acting quickly on opening abscesses to decrease the chance of the lesion maturing and emphasized the use of hot irons as a matter of treatment. [Attributes: First Edition]
