Il chante ici les avantures d'un Matou, ce qui lui est arrivé sur terre, dans les enfers et aux champs Elisées.

         Haarlem panorama - naar Pieter de Molijn.

      GROOT(S) GEZICHT OP HAARLEM?HAER-LEM?? kopergravure vervaardigd door Jan van de Velde naar een tekening van Pieter de Molijn. Uitgegeven te Amsterdam door Reinier en Joshua Ottens tussen 1726-1766. De gravure bestaat uit 3 aaneengeplakte bladen; tesamen 41 x 169,2 cm. Later met de hand gekleurd. Signaturen midden onder: Petrus Molineus Inv. ; Johannes Veldius sculp. ; R.& I.Ottens Excud.Amst:.De eerste druk (staat) verscheen in 1621, uitgegeven te Haarlem door David van Horenbeeck. Dit is de tweede druk.Hier zien we Haarlem vanuit het noorden met centraal de Grote of St.-Bavokerk en op de voorgrond de Kleverlaan. Geheel links de ru?ne van kasteel Huis ter Kleef waarnaast een boerderij aan Het Zieken (de tegenwoordige Kennemerstraat) en het torentje van het voormalig Leproos-, Pest- en Dolhuis (thans Museum Het Dolhuys). Geheel rechts een van de molens aan de Zijlweg.In composities van Pieter de Molijn (London 1595-1661 Haarlem) komen de figuren altijd sterk naar voren en steken van de omgeving af. Op de voorgrond links zien we hier een aantal mannen en koeien. Op de Kleverlaan een aantal paard-en-wagens, ruiters en wandelaars. In het midden een tekenaar die het Huis ter Kleef schetst, vermoedelijk is dit De Molijn zelf die zich een plek in deze voorstelling gunde.Hollandse landschapsschilderkunst uit de 17de eeuw speelde zich vooral af rond Haarlem. Het burgerlijke buitenvermaak, zoals het rondrijden in ??speelwagens?, het bezoek aan plattelandsherbergen, dorpskermissen en het wandelen, was daarbij een favoriet onderwerp. In het relatief veilige Hollandse platteland werd toen al eindeloos gewandeld, terwijl in andere Europese steden de inwoners wel twee keer uitkeken voordat ze de stadsgrenzen verlieten.Boven het profiel van Haarlem van links naar rechts het wapen van Haarlem, gehouden door twee zeemonsters, het wapen van Holland, een op een gevleugeld paard gezeten vrouw (dichtkunst?), de dorre boom met de wapens van Haarlem op een vaartuig met een zaag op de boeg (symbool voor de verovering van Damiate door een aantal leden van Haarlemse families waarvan de wapenschilden in de boom hangen), vervolgens een op een leeuw gezeten vrouw, die zuilen vasthoudt, als symbool voor de kracht. Daarna het wapen van prins Maurits en tenslotte het oude wapen van Haarlem, gehouden door twee zwaar behaarde mannen.Het cartouche rechtsonder bevat een opdracht aan het stadsbestuur van Haarlem in het Latijn en Grieks door Samuel Ampzing en David van Horenbeeck, daaromheen een aantal voorwerpen waarin we Haarlem zouden moeten herkennen, zoals wapens, harnassen, muziek, muziekinstrumenten, boeken, paletten en penselen, het zwaard van justitie, vlaggen, voorwerpen die te maken hebben met de textielnijverheid en blekerijen, geheel rechtsonder een biervat en een tulp.prijs: ?8.500,- (incl. lijst, BTW margerregeling).

         Fabularum Aesopiarum Libri Quinque. Cum Novo Commentario Petri Burmanni.

      - The celebrated Burman edition of Phaedrus, "Edition fort estimee, surtout a cause de la preface critique contre Bentley." Brunet IV, p. 588. "I have carefully read over Burman's edition of Phaedrus," says Harwood, "and it is very correct and does great honour to the singular erudition and critical acumen of that great man." -- Dibdin II, 281. Erudition aside, this volume seems to be the product of intense scholarly squabbling between the great English classicist Richard Bentley and his rivals, of which Burman was one. Apparently, Bentley's inclusion of Phaedrus in his Terence of 1726 led to a falling out between Bentley and Burman, who had been planning this present edition of Phaedrus himself. Bentley had hastily published the Phaedrus to score points against another erstwhile friend, Francis Hare, later Bishop of Chichester) whose 1724 edition of Terence had been compiled with information he had obtained from Bentley, and issued prior to one projected by the latter. Hare subsequently retaliated against Bentley's Phaedrus with his caustic 1726 Epistola Critica, which is here reprinted. "The letter is in Latin, and is not only very scarce, but considered to be a very fine piece of classical criticism." (Dibdin II, p. 281). The third portion of this volume is comprised of funeral orations and inscriptions, written by various authors, in Latin and Dutch, on the occasion of Burman's death in 1741. Extra engraved title, printed title page in red and black. 263 pages + indices. 4to, contemporary gilt vellum over boards (vellum warped and detached from foredge and top of front board; t.p.s frayed; many pp. dog-eared and shaken).

The oath acknowledged the anti-Papal powers of Parliament in matters of religion. A year after More was arrested he was tried for treason and beheaded. Fifteen pages of Index in rear, as published.

         Itinerarium Septentrionale; Or, A Journey Thro' Most Of The Counties Of Scotland, And Those In The North Of England. In Two Parts {Complete, Without The Later "Supplement")

      London: Alexander Gordon / G. Strahan / J. Woodman / J. Innys / T. Woodward, 1726. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Good. 66 Engraved Plates, Some Fold Out And Multi-Fold. 1st Printing First Issue (1726), Without The Later Supplement. 14 1/4" Tall. Full Calf, Elaborate Gilt Spine With Six Bands, Red Morocco Spine Label, Covers Blindstamped With Elaborate Frames, Gilt Border, Handmade Endpapers.Title Page, 2 Pp Dedication, 4 Pp Subscribers' List, 10 Pp Preface. Large Multifold Map Of England, Text On Pp 11-168, Appendix On Pp 169-187, Advertisement, 4 Pp Index At End. Covers Worn, Joints Cracked But Hinges Sound, All Pages Square And Immaculate, All Plates Clean And Intact, 1" Pull Tear In Margin Of Preliminary Fold-Out Map, Not Reaching The Printing Or Engraved Area. This Is The First Book Covering The Antiquities Of Scotland. Alexander Gordon (1692?-1755) Was A Scottish Antiquary And Singer. The Itinerarium, Was Considered An Essential Reference By All Roman Antiquaries Of His Time. Gordon Was Born At Aberdeen, Scotland, Not Later Than 1692. After Earning An M.A. At The University Of Aberdeen, Where He Distinguished Himself By His Classical Attainments, He Resided For A Time In The City, Eking Out A Living As A Teacher Of Languages And Music. He Also Painted Portraits In Oil. He Afterwards Visited The Continent, At First Probably As A Tutor, And Returned Home An Excellent French And Italian Scholar, And With A Good Knowledge Of Art And Antiquities. He Studied Music In Italy, And When In London He Occasionally Sang In Opera, And Among His Countrymen Was Known As "Singing Sandie." At One Time He Appears To Have Been An Itinerant Teacher Of Music, More Especially While Collecting The Materials For His Itinerarium, Some Time Before 1720. In 1720 Stukeley, In His Account Of A Roman Temple [Arthur's Oon] And Other Antiquities Near Graham's Dike In Scotland, Expressed His Wonder That No Scotsman Had Hitherto Investigated The Roman Antiquities Of The Country. "This," Says Gordon, "Was Sufficient Excitement For Me To Proceed Still More Vigorously In Collecting What I Had Begun." During Three Successive Years He Visited Different Parts Of Scotland And Northumberland, Exploring, Drawing, And Measuring Ancient Remains, At Much Cost And Some Hardship. Liberal Patrons, However, Were Not Wanting, Such As The Duke Of Queensberry, To Whom The Work Was Subsequently Dedicated, The Earl Of Pembroke, The Earl Of Findlater, The Earl Of Hertford, And Viscount Bateman, Whose Cabinet Of Curiosities He Was Often Enabled To Enrich During His Travels At Home And Abroad, Edward Chandler, Then Bishop Of Lichfield, And Duncan Forbes Of Culloden, At That Time Lord Advocate. His Great Patron Was Sir John Clerk Of Penicuik, Edinburghshire. He Was A Frequent Guest At Old Penicuik House, Where He Had Access To A Splendid Museum Of Antiquities, And Was Accompanied By Clerk In His Northumbrian Explorations, As Well As In Others Nearer Home. The Work, Which Had Been Largely Subscribed For, Appeared As Itinerarium Septentrionale In 1726. In This Laborious Work Gordon Proved Himself An Honest, Painstaking Antiquary. Though His Theories Have Long Since Been Exploded, He Has Preserved Records Of Earthworks, Inscriptions, And Relics Of Various Kinds, Of Which But For Him All Knowledge Would Have Been Lost. The Appendix Derived Its Chief Value From A Learned Correspondence Concerning Ancient Sepulchral Rites In Britain Between Sir John Clerk And Roger Gale Which Gordon Here Made Public, Greatly To Their Annoyance. He Apologizes For The Inelegant Illustrations Of His Itinerarium. Gordon Sailed For South Carolina In August 1741, As Secretary To James Glen, F.S.A., The Newly Appointed Governor Of That Province. There He Eventually Prospered. To The Royal Society He Sent An Elaborate Description Of The Natural History Of South Carolina, Which Was Not Read Until 25 May 1758. The Itinerarium, The Essential Handbook Of All Roman Antiquaries Of That Day, Was A Favorite With Sir Walter Scott, Who Has Immortalized It In The Antiquary As That Prized Folio Which Jonathan Oldbuck Undid From Its Brown Paper Wrapper In The Hawes Fly Or Queensferry Diligence.

III/1, S. 122-25, Noten S. 72-74. - Wichtige erste Ausgabe des ersten Werkes zu Grundfragen des geistigen Eigentums und Urheberrechts. Der Frühaufklärer, Jurist ("Icti", d. i. Iuris consulti) und Hallenser Professor wendet sich vehement gegen die Unsitte seiner Zeit, den Nachdruck von Büchern ohne Zustimmung des Autors oder des berechtigten Verlegers. Er fordert ein Verbot aus Fragen der Gerechtigkeit und der wirtschaftlichen Überlebensfähigkeit von Autoren und Verlegern. Mit den Raubdruckern geht Gundling hart ins Gericht, er bezeichnet sie als "Hottentotten", denen ein hässlicher Wurm in der Seele sitzt und empfiehlt ihnen, zu den Tartaren oder nach Irland zu gehen, wo das Plündern und Rauben bekanntlich erlaubt sei. - Sehr gutes Exemplar!

         Haarlem panorama - naar Pieter de Molijn.

      GROOT(S) GEZICHT OP HAARLEM?HAER-LEM?? kopergravure vervaardigd door Jan van de Velde naar een tekening van Pieter de Molijn. Uitgegeven te Amsterdam door Reinier en Joshua Ottens tussen 1726-1766. De gravure bestaat uit 3 aaneengeplakte bladen; tesamen 41 x 169,2 cm. Later met de hand gekleurd. Signaturen midden onder: Petrus Molineus Inv. ; Johannes Veldius sculp. ; R.& I.Ottens Excud.Amst:.De eerste druk (staat) verscheen in 1621, uitgegeven te Haarlem door David van Horenbeeck. Dit is de tweede druk.Hier zien we Haarlem vanuit het noorden met centraal de Grote of St.-Bavokerk en op de voorgrond de Kleverlaan. Geheel links de ru?ne van kasteel Huis ter Kleef waarnaast een boerderij aan Het Zieken (de tegenwoordige Kennemerstraat) en het torentje van het voormalig Leproos-, Pest- en Dolhuis (thans Museum Het Dolhuys). Geheel rechts een van de molens aan de Zijlweg.In composities van Pieter de Molijn (London 1595-1661 Haarlem) komen de figuren altijd sterk naar voren en steken van de omgeving af. Op de voorgrond links zien we hier een aantal mannen en koeien. Op de Kleverlaan een aantal paard-en-wagens, ruiters en wandelaars. In het midden een tekenaar die het Huis ter Kleef schetst, vermoedelijk is dit De Molijn zelf die zich een plek in deze voorstelling gunde.Hollandse landschapsschilderkunst uit de 17de eeuw speelde zich vooral af rond Haarlem. Het burgerlijke buitenvermaak, zoals het rondrijden in ??speelwagens?, het bezoek aan plattelandsherbergen, dorpskermissen en het wandelen, was daarbij een favoriet onderwerp. In het relatief veilige Hollandse platteland werd toen al eindeloos gewandeld, terwijl in andere Europese steden de inwoners wel twee keer uitkeken voordat ze de stadsgrenzen verlieten.Boven het profiel van Haarlem van links naar rechts het wapen van Haarlem, gehouden door twee zeemonsters, het wapen van Holland, een op een gevleugeld paard gezeten vrouw (dichtkunst?), de dorre boom met de wapens van Haarlem op een vaartuig met een zaag op de boeg (symbool voor de verovering van Damiate door een aantal leden van Haarlemse families waarvan de wapenschilden in de boom hangen), vervolgens een op een leeuw gezeten vrouw, die zuilen vasthoudt, als symbool voor de kracht. Daarna het wapen van prins Maurits en tenslotte het oude wapen van Haarlem, gehouden door twee zwaar behaarde mannen.Het cartouche rechtsonder bevat een opdracht aan het stadsbestuur van Haarlem in het Latijn en Grieks door Samuel Ampzing en David van Horenbeeck, daaromheen een aantal voorwerpen waarin we Haarlem zouden moeten herkennen, zoals wapens, harnassen, muziek, muziekinstrumenten, boeken, paletten en penselen, het zwaard van justitie, vlaggen, voorwerpen die te maken hebben met de textielnijverheid en blekerijen, geheel rechtsonder een biervat en een tulp.prijs: ?8.500,- (incl. lijst, BTW margerregeling).

         Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World (Gulliver’s Travels) by Lemuel Gulliver

      London: Benj. Motte 1726 - FIRST EDITION. This is an outstanding untouched example of Teerink’s A edition, the true first edition, preceding the AA and B editions. As Sir William Temple’s secretary at Moor Park, the young Swift had access to many travel accounts in Temple’s library. A frequent reader of such books during his formative years, Swift began working in 1714 on his own fictional account of the travels of Martin Scriblerus. The success of Robinson Crusoe (1719) helped spur on the writing of the book, a satire not only of travel narratives but of many aspects of eighteenth-century life including politics, science, commerce, and society. By the 1720s that work had become Gulliver’s Travels. In March 1726 Swift came to England for the first time since 1714, bringing the manuscript of Gulliver’s Travels. “To preserve his anonymity, Swift dealt with Motte by post and through intermediaries. It has always been assumed that political prudence was the main reason for Swift’s so carefully preserving the secret of his authorship. Certainly Swift enjoyed the thought (whether real or illusion) of writing dangerously” (Lock, “The Text of Gulliver’s Travels”). The author returned to Dublin even before the parcel had been delivered to the publisher. Although it was rumored that Swift was the author, he maintained the fiction that he knew nothing of the authorship in his conversation and correspondence. Motte hurried the book into print, using five printers who took different sections of the text. The initial printing (Teerink A) sold out within one week, and two additional editions (AA and B) soon followed. Gulliver’s Travels was an immediate success, and the book has remained one of the enduring classics of English literature. Thomas Gay wrote that “from the highest to the lowest it is universally read, from the Cabinet Council to the Nursery.” The influence of Gulliver’s Travels has been vast. The terms Lilliputian, Brobdingnagian, and Yahoo have entered the language. The book inspired countless sequels, adaptations, parodies, and imitations worldwide in print, comics, cartoons, television, stage, and film. The wildly imaginative book became a source of inspiration for authors from Voltaire to Orwell, and it is one of the few works of fiction of its time that is still widely read for pleasure. A fine, unrestored copy of Gulliver’s Travels is a cornerstone of any collection of the greatest books in English literature. Teerink 28 (A edition). Rothschild 2104-6. Printing and the Mind of Man 289. Grolier/English 42. Two volumes. Second state of portrait as usual. Contemporary paneled calf.

This printing of the Bible may actually have post-dated the accession of George II to the throne in June 1727, since the Old Testament title page is dated 1727 and the type newly reset (perhaps in commemoration), whereas Baskett's other quarto printings of that same period were pulled from earlier standing type (see Herbert 967). The BOCP bound into this copy was printed from type standing from 1719 (Griffiths, 151). With Apocrypha and Index. Separate title pages for the Old and New Testaments, and the Psalms in Meter. Text of OT ends on Ddd8a, the Apocrypha on Qqq4b, and NT on Iiii2b. Griffiths 1726:3. Herbert 979, 983. Not in Darlow & Moule. Early armorial bookplate.Text generally quite clean, with wormholing to text of last 15 leaves of the Apocrypha, the New Testament, and the first half of the metrical Psalter.

Neu eingebunden in roten Halbpergamenteinband der Zeit (mit rot gefärbtem Pergament). Einband etwas angestaubt und berieben, Vorsätze deutlich jünger. Innen teils gering, teils stark gebräunt und stockfleckig, Ecken teils fingerfleckig, meist kleinere Randschäden an Frontispiz und einigen weiteren Blättern (nur bis S. 20) alt hinterlegt (auf Seite 4 mit einigem Textverlust in den Marginalien, am Frontispiz mit sehr kleinem Bildverlust). Stempel auf Vorsatz und alter Besitzeintrag auf dem Titel. "Nach dem Verbot der Zünfte 1616 entstand mit den Quartieren ein neues Forum bürgerlicher Opposition gegen den oligarchischen Rat. Im Verfassungskampf von 1705 bis 1732 bildete das achte Quertier ein Zentrum, der damalige Fähnrich Rücker eine Galionsfigur der Bürgerbewegung. Als die Quartiere 1705 den Kaiser um Bestätigung des Bürgervertrages von 1613 und der Stättigkeit der Juden baten, schien sich die Geschichte des Aufstandes von 1612 bis 1614 zu wiederholen" (in FFM 1200, Traditionen und Perspektiven einer Stadt, Ausstellungskatalog 1994, Seite 131).

This printing of the Bible may actually have post-dated the accession of George II to the throne in June 1727, since the Old Testament title page is dated 1727 and the type newly reset (perhaps in commemoration), whereas Baskett's other quarto printings of that same period were pulled from earlier standing type (see Herbert 967). The BOCP bound into this copy was printed from type standing from 1719 (Griffiths, 151). With Apocrypha and Index. Separate title pages for the Old and New Testaments, and the Psalms in Meter. Text of OT ends on Ddd8a, the Apocrypha on Qqq4b, and NT on Iiii2b. Griffiths 1726:3. Herbert 979, 983. Not in Darlow & Moule. Early armorial bookplate.Text generally quite clean, with wormholing to text of last 15 leaves of the Apocrypha, the New Testament, and the first half of the metrical Psalter. Contemporary calf-gilt quite lovely. A handsome copy.

Octavo, mid-20th-century full brown morocco, raised bands, all edges gilt. $19,500.First edition, scarce second issue (Teerink “AA”) of Swift’s classic satire—“at once a favorite book of children and a summary of bitter scorn for mankind”—with engraved frontispiece portrait of Gulliver, six plates (four maps and two plans), as well as numerous woodcut initials, head- and tail-pieces. Handsomely bound.A classic ""at once a favorite book of children and a summary of bitter scorn for mankind,"" Swift's masterpiece will ""last as long as the language, because it describes the vices of man in all nations"" (DNB).

""Gulliver's Travels has given Swift an immortality beyond temporary fame… For every edition designed for the reader with an eye to the historical background, 20 have appeared, abridged or adapted, for readers who care nothing for the satire and enjoy it as a first-class story"" (PMM 185). ""Of all Swift's writings it best shows the merits of his mind and his gifts of expression… It is important to realize that it could be written only by one who had the highest ideals for human achievement and who despaired of the achieving"" (Baugh et al., 865-66)—although Swift himself expressed this hope for his ""Travells"" to a friend: ""They are admirable Things, and will wonderfully mend the world"" (Rothschild 2104).
