RUYSCH, Frederik
Amsterdam, Janson-Waesberg, 1725-1742. 2 volumes in-4. Collation : Veau brun, dos à nerfs orné. (Reliure de l'époque.). ____ Ces oeuvres de Ruysch sont illustrées d'un frontispice, d'un portrait, de 135 planches hors texte, dont de nombreuses dépliantes et de 8 figures dans le texte. Elles rassemblent 46 pièces imprimées, à pagination séparée, chacune avec sa propre page de titre. Après une notice sur la vie de Ruysch, l'éditeur a rassemblé diverses publications précédemment publiées, à des dates de différentes. Ces textes sont suivis d'une table générale. Les illustrations de ces ouvrages sont remarquables, tout à la fois belles et étranges. On y voit les plus incroyables compositions baroques d'histoire naturelle, qui furent achetées par la suite par Pierre le Grand. Les dos ont été refaits récemment. Bon exemplaire. *-------* The complete works of the Dutch anatomist Frederik Ruysch. Illustrated with a frontispiece, a portrait, 135 engraved plates out of text, many folding, and 7 in text. It collects 46 printed pieces, each with its own title page, in various editions. It includes the author's life and a general index and the appendix to this index. The most striking plates are found in the 12 parts of the "Thesaurus". "Probably the most original artist in the history of anatomical preparations, Ruysch enjoyed making up elaborate three-dimensional emblems of mortality from his specimens. These fantastic, dream-like concoctions constructed of human anatomical parts are illustrated in the "Thesaurus" on large folding plates mostly engraved by Cornelis Huyberts, who also en … [Click Below for Full Description]

(Indians, South America).
1725. Because Spanish colonial-era laws concerning Indians were numerous and published in the unwieldy Recopilacion de leyes de los reynos de Indias (5 vols., 1681 with subsequent revisions and editions) and authoritatively interpreted in Solorzano Pereira's also hefty Politica indiana (2 vols., 1648 and later editions), lawyers and judges often resorted to reducing the laws most relevant to their own work to a manuscript epitome, i.e., a booklet offering an abstract of each chosen law with its proper citation to either the Recopilacion or to Politica indiana when the full law or interpretation might be wanted. THIS IS JUST SUCH A WORKING EPITOME, and that it speaks both to laws relating to Indians generally and, as per its title, to => laws relating specifically to Indians settled in reducciones helps to localize it. In regions where the indigenous populations were sedentary (e.g., Mexico, Guatemala, central Peru) there was no need to force them into "reducciones" (essentially, created communities with a high degree of "townness"); but in places were the natives were nomadic (e.g., Paraguay, and some jungle regions of the Viceroyalty of Peru) enforced resettlement was the norm. Whether the Indians within the ken of this law practice were sedentary by tradition or "resettled," they were to enjoy numerous privileges and exemptions and also were prohibited from doing certain things. The first chapter headings here are a good summary of these privileges, exemptions, and prohibitions: "On the treatment of Indians," "Personal service," "Privileges in legal matters," and … [Click Below for Full Description]

(ex-libris gravé François Emmanuel Guignard comte de Saint-Priest, 1735-1821, Ambassadeur à Constantinople puis Ministre de l'Intérieur ). 3e édition de ce célèbre livre très rare en bel état. N. Bion était un des constructeurs d'instruments les plus célèbres de son époque. Il était réputé pour l'exceptionnelle qualité de ses instruments. L'ouvrage donne un tableau très complet des articles que pouvait proposer un atelier à sa clientèle au XVIIIe siècle. On y trouve la description de lunettes microscopiques, astronomiques, de micromètres qui y sont décrits sans grands détails car sans doute Bion évitait de donner trop de renseignements qui auraient permis à un amateur de faire exécuter ces instruments par un habile ouvrier. C'est à ce public d'amateurs que le livre est destiné et son succès correspond au goût de l'époque pour la mécanique, l'astronomie mais aussi aux besoins pratiques des arpenteurs, ingénieurs etc. L'ouvrage a connu de nombreuses éditions, mais la plupart des exemplaires sont en mauvais état.

Dieser übernahm gegen Zahlung hoher Summen an die Hofkammer die Pacht des Tabakmonopols und konnte dafür selbst über die Einrichtung der Tabakmanufakturen und die Höhe der Tabakpreise bestimmen. Verbittert über Intrigen der böhmischen Stände und der heimischen Kaufmannschaft sowie über die illegale Tabakeinfuhr durch ausländische Botschafter legte er 1748 die Pacht zurück.

Translation of the author's Diarium italicum, which was originally published at Paris, 1702. This translation was published originally (1712) under title: The travels of . Father Montfaucon from Paris thro' Italy. This is Montfaucon’s diary of his antiquarian travels through Italy, in order to consult certain Greek manuscripts for his upcoming edition of John Chrysostom’s homilies. In it, he describes “the delights of Italy” (both Roman and Greek), its ancient ruins, statuary, paintings, libraries, monasteries, churches and palace, from Milan and Venice to Florence, Naples, and Rome, where in addition to the classical sites, he also explored some mediaeval remains. Montfaucon was an outstanding and celebrated Grecist and Greek palaeographer of the late humanist period (see PMM175).

[French Colonies in America]: [Martinique]
Paris, 1725. 6pp. Quarto. Very minor foxing. Light soiling along spine edge. Contemporary inscription. Near fine. A French royal decree concerning the confiscation of a British vessel. "This decree confirms the confiscation of the British vessel Anne de Rodelan and her cargo, the property of and commanded by one Jacques Bron (James Brown?) on August 16th 1723 at the 'Fort Royal de l'Isle de la Martinique,' for, whereas he was officially destined for Barbados, Bron or Brown conceived the idea of landing his cattle and cargo on the Island of Martinique, alleging as a pretext that he had no water for his cattle, whereas in fact the water supply was found to be sufficient to last them another week" - Maggs. Wroth locates only one copy, at the Archives Nationale; OCLC locates no further print copies. Rare. From the library of Cardinal Étienne Charles de Loménie de Brienne (1727-94), Minister of Louis XVI, Archbishop of Toulouse and of Sens. A friend of Voltaire and a member of the Académie Française, Brienne wielded significant power as head of the Finance Ministry, which earned him many enemies. He died in prison during the French Revolution, despite having renounced Catholicism in 1793 (presumably as an attempt to save his life). MAGGS, FRENCH COLONISATION OF AMERICA 308 (this copy).

FORMAN, [Charles]
London: printed for and sold by S. Buffey, 1725. 8vo., 71 + (1)pp., with the half-title, outer margin of leaf E3 [pp.37-38] just shaved affecting single letter at the end of a few lines [but sense unimpaired], recently well bound in linen-backed marbled boards lettered A good copy. First edition. Hanson 3454. Goldsmiths 6363. Kress 3599. Massie 2560. James Ford Bell F.132. See Landwehr #42 for a French translation. In this letter, dated Amsterdam October 24, 1724, Forman writes strongly and persuasively against the setting up of the Ostend Company ['which now portends so much mischief to the trade of Great Britain']. He argues that there will be significant disadvantages to both the Dutch and the English East India Companies, probably making their future profits negligible. 'To doubt that this new Company established in Flanders will prejudice the trade both of Great Britain and Holland, would be to arraign the sense and judgement of the British Parliament as well as the States General.' [p.28]. Forman suggests that the only way to prevent this 'fatal' and irrevocable loss of trade is through strict regulations. The Ostend Company was established on December 19, 1722, and was granted a charter for a term of thirty years beginning July 20, 1723. In 1732 the Charter was withdrawn, however, and the Company was eventually liquidated in 1774. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Maitland Charles,
Nella Stamp. di S. A. R. per il Tartini e Franchi,, In Firenze, 1725. Charles Maitlan fu un celebre fisico scozzese, fra i primi sostenitori e praticanti della tecnica della Variolizzazione. In verità la prima a sperimentare la tecnica fu sua moglie, Lady Mary Wortley Montagu. Infatti nel 1718, mentre il marito serviva presso l'ambasciata britannica di Costantinopoli,la donna venne a conoscenza che a Costantinopoli una donna anziana originaria di Pera a Cipro, praticava la una tecnica di inoculazione del Vaiolo per prevenire la malattia e, tenendo all'oscuro il marito, fece sottoporre il figlio di cinque anni, Edoardo, alla pratica. Poi dopo una settimana, quando il trattamento si rivelò esser un successo, si confessò con il marito. Bisogna ricordare che un altro medico greco, Emanuel Timoni, nato a Costantinopoli da una famiglia di medici italiani, già nel 1713 aveva presentato una relazione alla Royal Society di Londra con una descrizione del metodo della vaiolizzazione usato in Asia Minore ma da quanto sembra non aveva mai applicato il procedimento o assistito ad un caso pratico. Maitland rimase scosso ma l'esperienza stuzzicò la sua curiosità scientifica e quando, nel 1721, la moglie chiese al marito di sottoporre al trattamento anche la loro seconda figlia che all'epoca aveva cinque anni, Maitland, seppur a malincuore, acconsentì a far lui direttamente l'operazione a patto che potessero assisterlo come testimoni tre amici e colleghi del Royal College of Physicians. Fu questa la prima inoculazione professionale in Inghilterra e spianò poi la via a tutte le seguenti sper … [Click Below for Full Description]

Guillaume de Lisle; Marin
Paris: Guillaume DeLisle, Quai de l'Horloge. Original hand colored map. Crease at center fold of map. 62 x 47.5 cm. Scale: 1, 300, 000. Engraved by Marin. "The second largest Caribbean island, known to the Spanish as Hispaniola or Espanola and to the French as Saint Domingue, was first explored by Christopher Columbus in 1492 and became the center of Spanish rule in the 16th century. While the Spanish settlements were concentrated on the eastern two thirds of the island, buccaneers occupied the western third during the 17th century. Consequently in 1697, Spain ceded the western third to France. Although the French name is applied to the entire island on this 1725 map by the noted French geographer Guillaume Delisle, the Spanish presence on the eastern part of the island is acknowledged with the designation, "Quartiers des Espagnols, " while the French area is labeled "Quartiers du Nord " and "Quartiers du Sud." Delisle's rendition of the island is based on a 1722 map prepared by the French engineer Amedee Frezier." "DeLisle is important as the first "scientific" cartographer who incorporated the most current information on exploration and topography into his maps....Lloyd Brown states that DeLisle "undertook a complete reform of a system of geography that had been in force since the second century, and by the time he was twenty five he had very nearly accomplished his purpose."-David Rumsey Historical Map Collection.

London: John Walsh... and John and Joseph Hare, 1725. RISM C4505. BUC p. 240. Croft, an English composer, was a chorister in the Chapel Royal under Blow. "He was also deeply influenced by Purcell... On Blow's death in 1708 he followed him not only as a composer, Tuner of the Regals and Organs, and Master of the Children of the Chapel Royal but also as organist of Westminster Abbey... Croft was the senior Chapel Royal composer at the time when Handel began to find favour with Queen Anne... Croft broke new ground in 1724 by the publication of a handsome two-volume collection of his church music... engraved and in the form of a score rather than in parts... As a composer Croft was both a staunch preserver of tradition and an assimilator of new techniques... It was Croft who among composers of his generation most decisively turned a new page in the history of the verse anthem." Watkins Shaw and Graydon Beeks in Grove Music Online..
