Six engraved frontispieces, and 283 copper-engraved plates, as well as many text engravings, engraved vignettes and capitals. Signed in the first volume by all four publishers, listing all subscribers, and numbered (#93), identifying this set as that of Adriaan Deynoot (1685-1744). Contemporary uniform full morocco. Spines with eight raised, gilt-ornamented bands, rich gilt compartments and two black morocco labels with gilt titles. Boards with gilt ornamental borders, gilt corner pieces, and gilt dentelles. Marbled endpapers. Edges marbled.l First edition of this rare, splendid and opulent work which was vastly expanded on knowledge derived from the author's own collection of natural history specimens and artifacts - Marsigli's famous Kunstkammer in Bologna. The work deals with the natural history of the Danube river, which runs from southern Germany into Austria, through Slovakia, Hungary, along Croatia, through Serbia and Romania, and along Bulgaria, towards the Black Sea. It flows through Regensburg, Vienna, Budapest, Belgrade and numerous other cities. It is the longest river of Central Europe. Its fauna has many endemic elements, and its waters have been a major trading route since prehistoric times. Wood: "Basic work on one of Europe's greatest rivers [.] in which [Marsigli] devoted much space to a study of the riverbed and of the waters, as well as to the flora and fauna, and geology and the mineralogy of the adjacent land." DSB: "An early classic on the natural history of the River Danube with an account (vols. IV-VI) of the animals living in it and about its course, a description of the fishes, birds and their nests, the quadrupeds roaming the banks, etc.". The volumes are devoted to cartography, astronomy and hydrography (Volume 1) with maps of the whole river and spurious astronomical observations [measurements of star positions (e.g. Polaris, Arcturus, Spica) at various places along the Danube (e.g. Vienna), Jupiter and the position of the Galilean moons (in several figures), the transit of Mercury, on 3 November 1697 and its track across the solar disc (figured), and lunar phases with 16 large figures showing the terminator relative to the moon’s craters]; archaeology and history of the settlements, towns, roads and bridges (Vol. 2); mineralogy (Vol. 3); fish fauna (Vol. 4), which includes one plate with shells, and two with turtles; avifauna (Vol. 5); and several other subjects, including meteorological and climatological observations, notes on the river's velocity, the insects occurring in and near the river, etc., etc. (Vol. 6). They are titled as follows: Tomus I, in tres partes digestus : geographicum, astronomicum, hydrographicum; Tomus II. De Antiquitatibus Romanorum ad ripas Danubii; Tomus. III. De Mineralibus circa Danubium effossis; Tomus IV. De Piscibus in aquis Danubii viventibus; Tomus V. De Avibus circa aquas Danubii vagantibus, et de ipsarum nidis.; Tomus VI. De Fontibus Danubii. Observationes anatomicae. De Aquis Danubii et Tibisci. Catalogus plantarum. Observationes habitae cum barometris et thermometris. De Insectis. Wood: "The part of ornithological plates with 74 drawings by the Italian artist Raimondo Manzini (1658-1730), including 59 birds, and 15 nests with eggs, the latter are considered the first illustrations of its kind in the history of ornithology". In several bibliographies the plate number is erroneously stated to be 284, which probably goes back to a counting error caused by inconsistencies in the numbering of figures and the distinction between engraved plates and text engravings. Complete copies have 283 plates, as should be concluded after carefully comparing the extensive plate listings. Provenance: the former owner of this copy was the original subscriber, Adriaan Deynoot from Holland, who earned his d [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

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).

More was an English lawyer, statesman, author, social philosopher as well as a noted Renaissance humanist. He was an important counselor to King Henry VIII and in the last years of his life serves as Lord Chancellor. More opposed Henry VIII separation from the papal church and denied that the king was the Supreme Head of the Church of England. In 1534 he was imprisoned in the Tower of London for his refusal to take the oath required by the First Succession Act which was passed by the Parliament of England in March 1534. 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. Front and rear boards almost detached but holding. Some age wear, staining and scuffing on binding. Head and tail of spine slightly chipped. Some water staining on front and rear endpapers.

        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!

      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).
