        De respirationis mechanismo et usu genuino.

      Jenae : Apud Litteris Fickelscherrianis, 1727, 4, (2), 44, 1 faksimilierte Kupferstichtafel, Streifenbroschur. BEGRÜNDUNG DER "MECHANISCH-MATHEMATISCHEN ANALYSE DER ATEMBEWEGUNG" Rothschuh No.178Erste Ausgabe - De respirationis mechanismo et usu genuino / [Praeses:] Georgius Erh. Hamberger. [Resp.:] Justinus Gerhardus Duising Hamberger, Georg Erhard (1697-1755) (Pr?ses) Duising, Justinus Gerhardus (1705-1761)(Resp."Recent data on intercostal muscle function, largely electromyographic, tend to confirm the ideas of Hamberger, who, in 1748 (recte 1727), proposed a theory of intercostals muscle action upon the rib cage. Hamberger's scheme was based upon a consideration of the ribs as levers and the vertebral column and sternum as fulcra, and of the directions in which the internal and external intercostal muscle fibers ran. He proposed that the external intercostals were inspiratory and that the internal intercostals were expiratory, except in the parasternal regions where the internal intercostals (there are no other intercostal muscles) are inspiratory. Careful selective electromyographic studies in both animals and man (using small bipolar needle electrodes) by Draper et al, Taylor et al, and Sears et al have amply confirmed Hamberger's ideas".

      1727 - First Dutch edition. 2 vols. in 1 , Folio. Engraved frontispiece/half title , portrait, a large folding map ( strengthened at folds). and 5 further double page maps, double page view of Table Mountain, and 45 plates ( one with a short closed tear). Contemporary calf rather clumsily repaired. The first two blank leaves , the half title and frontispiece strengthened with tape at the foremargin .[12],529; [4],449,[79]pp. mst., B. Lakeman, Both the first ( printed in Germanin1719) and later editions, of which there were many, lose much compared to this definitive edition, which is quite rare in commerce. The 46 plates form the most advanced pictorial record of native life in the Cape and of the fauna too, while the earlier German edition only had one map. Kolbe or Kolben was sent to the Cape in 1705 in order to make astronomical observations, but he was not a success and in 1710 his superiors decided that a lacklustre performance of his duties warranted his repatriation to Holland. He managed, however, to find a position ending up as secretary to the Court of Landdrost and Heemraden at Stellenbosch. Again his character and abilities were found wanting and he returned to Germany in 1713. As Theal notices ? Kolbe's writings were the basis of nearly everything that was published concerning South Africa for the next half century? Kennedy ( Africana Repository Cape Town 1965) remarks on the superiority of the Dutch edition over the German. ? The Dutch is a finer book?. [Attributes: First Edition]

        De Legibus Hebraeorum ritualibus et earum rationibus libri quatuor. 2-vol. set (Complete)

Modern full brown morocco with gold lettering to spines. Raised bands. Engraved frontispiece portrait of the author by George Vertue. Decorative head-, and tailpieces.Originally written in 1685, John Spencer's "De Legibus Hebraeorum" is a pioneer work of comparative religion, advancing the thesis that Judaism was not the earliest of mankind's religions. Spencer's chief purpose in writting this book was to prove in detail that the rites and ceremonies of the Jewish religion were instituted in direct opposition to the practices of the surrounding idolatrous nations, and in order to establish the strongest distinction between the Jews and them. In this work the author derived nearly all his data from classical writers of Greece and Rome, the Church Fathers, the works of Josephus, or from the Bible itself.Previous owner's bookplates on inside of each front cover (Library Brocket Hall; Francis Thomas de Grey Cowper - Panshanger). The pages are remarkably white and therefore appear to have been washed. Text in Latin. Binding and interior in very good condition. About the author: John Spencer (1630-1693) was an English clergyman and scholar, Master of Corpus Christi College, Cambridge.

      Michel Charles le Céne, Amsterdam 1727 - (12 1/8 x 7 5/8 inches). Titles printed in red and black. Engraved portrait frontispiece, 44 engraved maps, plans and views (31 folding), 19 in-text engraved illustrations. Contemporary calf, spine with raised bands in seven compartments, red and green morocco lettering pieces in the second and third, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers and edges A lovely copy of a noted illustrated work on Asia, including maps and views of India, China, and Japan. "Johann von Mandelslo was a friend of Adam Olearius and a former page of the Duke of Holstein-Gottorp. Together Mandelslo and Olearius were sent by the Duke on an embassy to the Russian Czar and to the Shah of Persia [for the purpose of initiating trade relations with Russia, Tartary and Persia]. Mandelslo was authorized to leave the embassy in Persia and to continue his travels to the Far East. He went to Surat, Agra, and Goa in India, where he received great kindness from the English merchants, and he also visited Ceylon. He gives long accounts of the other parts of the Far East, which he did not visit personally. His return was made to England by sea via the Cape of Good Hope, which he visited in 1639" (Hill). Madelslo's narrative contains substantial information on the Far East. "Before his death, Mandelslo had entrusted his rough notes to Olearius, who subsequently published them bound with his numerous official accounts of the embassy" (Howgego). Following the first publication, Olearius added additional information to subsequent editions. A new edition in French translated by Wicquefort included still more additional material, including an account of the travels of Henri de Feynes to China, Formosa and Japan. The present edition published in Amsterdam in 1727 is a re-issue of the Van der Aa edition of 1719 (published in Leiden); both are celebrated as the best editions, being the most complete and with the largest number of illustrations. The plates include views and plans of London, Amsterdam, Brussels, Antwerp, Capetown, Goa, Surat, Jedo (Tokyo), St. Helena, Mauritius, Madagascar, the Canary Islands, Java, Congo and elsewhere.

The celebrated journey story of the knight Mandelslo accompanying the Duke of Holstein in an embassy to Russia and to Persia, was first published in Schlesswig, in 1645  already deceased Mandelslo and at his desire (1), by Adam Olearius [Adam Oehlschlaeger], librarian of the Duke and secretary of the embassy, as a complement to the report that Olearius drafted about that embassy. From there, coming alive, the trip was edited on multiple occasions during XVIIth c., at least in German, Dutch, French, Italian and English. The success of the work was helped by both Olearius and his translators and successive publishers by adding new content (to the brief description of Mandelslo s return to Europe through India and by boat turning the Cape of Good Hope) taken it from other sources to describe other Asian and East Indian territories in which Mandelslo had not stayed, from China to Japan, through Siam or the Philippine Islands. These modifications also took on a life of their own and the return trip description became a completely different separate work from the original story of the embassy in Moscow and Persia. The most complete editions of what came to be known as Mandelslo s voyages, especially in regard to the arrangement of multiple images to illustrate those distant territories, are those that Pieter Van der Aa printed in Leiden, 1719, in French. He published the Mandelslo s original narrative in two continuous paged tomes titled 'Voyages très curieux et très renommez, faits in Moscovie, Tartarie et Perse', in which the name of Mandelslo did not appear. On the other hand, paradoxically, the essentially apocryphal narrative of the voyage from Persia to India with the description of East Asia with all the accumulated sum of descriptions of those territories taken from multiple sources, was published by Vander Aa also in two continuous paged tomes with the title of 'Voyages celebres & remarquables, faits de Perse... por Johann Albrecht von Mandelslo'. But something happened that we have not been able to find out, because eight years later, in 1727, the unsold copies of these two works began to be commercialized with new title-pages, under the imprint of Michel Charles Le Céne, a publisher-printer from Amsterdam that was specialized in music prints production. Focusing on the second work that we offer, by comparing the copies of both states it can be observed that, apart from took out the first engraved title-page in which the name of Van der Aa appeared, and apart the new title-pages of worse quality paper  motive by which all the copies present the title-pages more age-toned than the rest of the leaves , Le Céne did not make any other alteration. Thus, both the pages and the graphic work that must be present in any copy, whether of the commercials with the tiltle-page from Van der Aa or the one from Charles de Ce ne, are always the same  except the engraved title-page. Moreover, this circumstance implies that all engravings come from the same state of the plates and from the same print run: all of them were printed in 1719 or earlier. Graphic contents must be composed of 20 half page (or bigger) vignettes inserted in the text, and 45 engravings out of text which are the result of the sum of on the one hand the 37 engravings collated in the notice to the bookbinder that appears on the back of Ooo3 (2 folded, 28 double-page, and 7 single-page) and, on the other hand, 8 engraved leaves: the Mandelslo s portrait  sometimes in front of the cover, sometimes behind and sometimes behind preliminars , a plate of two people on the coast of Cormandel, and six full-page engravings containing each one two framed images. These leaves of uncollated engravings are etched, Mandelslo s portrait excepts, with the number of the column they must be bound together. Cartographically, 26 of the engravings of the previous set are maps, namely, 4 of the great vignettes interspersed in the text and, outsides, 1 folding city map of Goa, and 15 double-page and 6 simple-page maps. Among the remaining panoramas, landscapes, scenes, ruins and buildings stands out the Yedo (i.e. Tokyo) folding panorama. On the other hand, the engravings that are most often missing because many copies have been stripped of any of them are the double-page of the Court of the Great Mogul (col. 144), the folding plane of Goa (col. 244) , the Java Island map (col. 356), and, of course, Tokyo s grand panorama (Col. 472). The item we offer, full of his graphic work and with the second volume half-title absent, was part of the great botanical library of the marriage formed by Ruth Hinrichsen and the bibliophile Walter Middelmann, German emigrants (1935) in South Africa, and founders of Honingklip Dryflowers, flower growers like Erikas, Proteas and other endemicals of the Cape region in South Africa.

Planscherna, signerade C. L. v. Schantz och J. v. d. Aveleen, avbildar bl.a. S:ta Klara kloster och Descartes grav. Verket är en historik över Klara församling från klostertiden till författarens samtid och avtrycker många i dag förkomna dokument. På s. 162-63 återfinns Nordbergs egenhändiga biografi. Prästen och skriftställaren Jöran A. Nordberg (1677-1744) hade tillfångatagits av ryssarna vid slaget vid Poltava och återkommit till Sverige först 1715. Han var bl.a. Karl XII:s biktfader åren 1716-17. Två år senare blev han kyrkoherde i Klara församling i Stockholm som på den tiden även innefattade Olofs kapell, nuvarande Adolf Fredriks kyrka. Nordberg har kommit att betraktas som den siste i raden av den svenska stormaktstidens rikshistoriografer, detta på grundval av sitt tvåbandsverk "Konung Carl XII:s historia" (1740). Det Cederhielmska biblioteket började byggas upp i slutet av 1600-talet av presidenten i Göta hovrätt, Germund Cederhielm. Det ärvdes och utökades ytterligare av sonen Eric Germund, men framförallt av dennes son Germund Carl. Den sista ägaren i familjen Cederhielm, Germund Ludvig, lät i början av 1800-talet flytta hela boksamlingen till Säby utanför Linköping. Den omfångsrika manuskriptsamlingen donerades med tiden till Uppsala universitetsbibliotek, medan boksamlingen 1841 gick i arv till Cederhielms hushållerska. Hennes efterlevande lät sälja böckerna på auktion i Stockholm 1878, 1880 och 1882. Biblioteket var då starkt reducerat p.g.a. en omfattande misskötsel under de föregående trettio åren, men dessa bokauktioner var trots detta bland 1800-talets viktigaste och mest intressanta. I boksamlingen ingick böcker ur Magnus Gabriel De la Gardies bibliotek och även ett stort antal krigsbyten ur polska bibliotek, framförallt med Karl Ferdinands pärmexlibris eller namn. Många av dessa böcker hade förvärvats i samband med försäljningen av det Oxenstiernska biblioteket 1732. Bibliotekarien och konsthistorikern Christoffer Eichhorn (1837-89) hade ett omfattande ochg vackert bibliotek som såldes på auktion 1890-91. Konstnären och professorn vid Konstakademien P. D. Holm (1835-1903) räknas som en av de främsta samlarna genom tiderna av svensk topografisk litteratur. I auktionskatalogen från 1904 över hans bibliotek står det i beskrivningen av denna bok: "mycket godt exemplar och som sådant sällsynt".

        Mémoire sur les colonies Américaines, sur leurs relations politques avec leurs métropoles, et sur la manière dont la France et L'Espagne ont dû envisager les suites de l'indépendance des Etats-Unis de l'Amérique.Paris, Pierre-Samuel Dupont, 1791. 8vo. 19th-century half calf, gold-tooled spine.

      Cat. Goldsmith I, 14728; Kress B2230; Sabin 97456. First separate edition of a revolutionary treatise on the relations between the American colonies and the colonising countries by the French economist Anne Robert Jacques Turgot (1727-1781). He explains his theory that the colonising countries should withdraw from the colonies on a friendly basis allowing the colonies to have their own goverment and trade with other countries independently. When the colonising countries would grant the colonies independence, they could still have the benefit of trading and settling there. The treatise was already composed in 1776 at the request of King Louis XVI, who solicited his ministers' opinions regarding the proper French policy toward the American Revolution. It was first published as Reflexions rédigées... in Mazzei's Recherches historiques et politiques (1788).A very good copy, only a few small spots.

Bound in early (possibly contemporary) quarter sheep with marbled boards, rubbed along spine and corners; red morocco lettering piece, chipped but clearly legible; all edges marbled. Bookplate of Buddle Atkinson to front paste down. A sturdy, unsophisticated copy, frontispiece slightly foxed along folds, sporadic light soiling and browning, otherwise clean and bright. ESTC Citation No. T116211. Lowndes 526. Bindley pt. vi, 1039. Fourth Edition (reissue, with altered title page, of sheets from third edition). Full of fascinating information relating to the etiquette and procedure of royal ceremonies. Buddle Atkinson's bookplate appears in Hugo's Catalogue of Thomas Bewick's works, but it is, in fact, engraved on steel, not wood, and came from the workshop of Mark Lambert, one of Bewick's pupils. The plate was designed and engraved by George F. Robinson, who joined Lambert's workshop in 1841 and who, in the course of 50 years, became chief engraver and director of all art works carried out by the firm. The plate was produced when Atkinson (b.1841) was a young child, perhaps for putting in books that had been owned by his father, John Buddle, so it likely dates from 1845-1850. N. B.

The work is instead a history of the practice of magic, beginning in ancient times and traced down to the present day.

The earliest version in English, that of Sir Thomas Hoby, appeared in 1561; the second, by Robert Samber, in 1724. Castiglione’s Il libro del cortegiano (The Book of the Courtier) "is a classic of Western literature: a conduct book describing the ideal courtier of the Renaissance (and to some degree the ideal court lady too); it is also a highly polished literary dialogue rich in classical lore and representative of the avant-garde culture of fifteenth- and sixteenth-century Italy. Responsible for transmitting fundamental cultural ideas abroad, among them the notion of the all-rounded, or ‘Renaissance’, man or woman, the stress on grace and elegance as part of the striving for perfection, and the details of the Neoplatonic love-theory then in vogue; it is also credited with having given rise in France to the concept of the gentilhomme and in England to that of the gentleman. . . . Interwoven into the fabric of the text is a wide spectrum of topics ranging from a theory of humor to an ethically grounded view of politics. . . . Truly encyclopedic in scope, The Book of the Courtier has been hailed as a veritable compendium of Renaissance culture." (Literary Encyclopedia) N. B.

        The works of John Locke Esq; in three volumes.

      The third collected edition of the works of one of the most significant philosophers of the Enlightenment. London : Printed for Arthur Bettesworth, Edmund Parker, John Pemberton, and Edward Symon, 1727. Three volumes, folio, uniform contemporary full calf with double gilt fillets; elaborately gilt spines in compartments between gilt-hatched raised bands, each spine panel featuring a central starburst tool incorporating a studded shield with an azured cross, flanked by unusual corner pieces incorporating volutes and a church monument or steeple, contrasting red and black morocco labels, gilt; bindings a little rubbed on sides and extremities, front joints rubbed on all volumes and partially split on third volume (but still holding firmly); edges speckled red; pp [6], xxviii, 575, [1], [16 index]; [2], 671, [13 index]; [6], 668, [16 index]; engraved frontispiece portrait of Locke by Geo. Vertue after G. Kneller, engraved epitaph plate (as frontis. to volume II), initials, head-pieces, and ornaments; front free-endpaper of volume I inscribed by the original owner with a quote from Voltaire: "Locke is the only one who has explain'd the human understanding, in a Book where there are nothing but truths; & what renders the work perfect is, that these Truths are clear. Voltaire"; an exceptionally fine set in well-preserved contemporary bindings. The importance of Locke's philosophy can hardly be overstated; it is summed up by the DNB: "Locke's authority as a philosopher was unrivalled in England during the first half of the eighteenth century, and retained great weight until the spread of Kantian doctrines. His masculine common sense, his modesty and love of truth have been universally acknowledged; and even his want of thoroughness and logical consistency enabled him to reflect more fully the spirit of a period of compromise. His spiritual descendant, J.S. Mill, indicates his main achievement by calling him the 'unquestioned founder of the analytic philosophy of mind'... By fixing attention upon the problem of the necessary limits of thought and investigating the origin of ideas, his writings led to the characteristic method of his English successors, who substituted a scientific psychology for a transcendental metaphysic... Hume's scepticism was the most famous application of Locke's method; but Reid and his follower Dugald Stewart, while holding that the theory of 'ideas' accepted by Locke would logically lead to Hume, still hold that a sound philosophy can be constructed upon Locke's method, and regard him as one of the great teachers... In France, Locke's name is said to have been first made popular by Fontenelle. He was enthusiastically admired by Voltaire and by d'Alembert, Diderot, Helvetius, and their contemporaries. Condillac, his most conspicuous disciple in philosophy, gave to his teaching the exclusively sensational turn which Locke would have apparently disavowed. Condorcet and the 'idéologues'... owed much to Locke during the revolutionary period... He was attacked as a source of the revolutionary views by De Maistre and by other reactionary writers... The English empirical school have continued to regard Locke as their founder, though they seem to have been more immediately influenced by his followers, Berkeley and Hume,... as also in some respects by his predecessor Hobbes." The first collected edition of Works was published in folio in 1714, the second in 1723, and the last folio edition in 1759.

        Schat-kamer ofte konst der stier-lieden, ?Amsterdam, Joannes Loots, 1702. With woodcut illustration of a ship's pilot with a plumb line and navigational instruments by Adriaan Le Duc (1693-1729) on title-page, 4 engraved plates (3 folding and 1 full-page). Further with many woodcut illustrations (mostly diagrams), and letterpress tables of tides and solar and lunar positions. Including: (2) VLACQ, Adriaen. De Tafelen der sinuum, tangentium en secantium, ofte der hoekmaten, raaklynen en snylynen. Amsterdam, Joannes Loots, 1702. Primarily with letterpress tables of logarithms and trigonometric functions, the present copy lacking those for logarithms. 2 parts in 1 volume. 8vo. Contemporary vellum.

      Crone Library 373 & 374; cf. Bierens de Haan 5196 (1727 ed.); Cat. NHSM, p. 672 (1713 ed. plus 1707 ed. of Tafelen alone); STCN (1727 ed., plus 1707 ed. of Tafelen alone), WorldCat (1710 ed.). Very rare first edition of a standard practical manual on the art of navigation, by the virtually unknown Klaas de Vries, teacher of mathematics in Amsterdam. In the preface De Vries summarises the content of the book, which is profusely illustrated (mostly with diagrams) and includes letterpress tables of the tides, the time lag between the positions of the sun and moon for the years 1701-1710, the declination of the sun, etc., as well as 4 engraved plates of a compass rose, the use of the Jakob's staff, the "Platte Paskaart" and the "Wassende graadige paskaart". The work is concluded by sections on the winds one can encounter on the journey from Holland to the Dutch East Indies; how to sail to the East Indies in autumn, during monsoons, etc. Ad 2: The corrected Loots edition of tables of trigonometric functions and logarithms. The note to the reader explicitly states that the tables are based on those published by Adriaen Vlacq in 1665 ( Tabulae sinuum ... ), but that they have been corrected, in part based on comparisons with the folio editions of Pitiscus for the trigonometric functions and Henry Briggs for the logarithms. The present copy lacks the tables of logarithms, but its collation and signing otherwise agrees with the somewhat irregular ones given in Crone. Good copy, the Schat-kamer complete with the errata leaf. The Tafelen lacks the two tables of logarithms (45 leaves, 2A1-M1). Binding somewhat dirty and stained, with the head of the spine chipped and cracked.

He explains how the Magi first came to deal with the Devil, and how the Devil has continued to insinuate himself throughout history, appearing to and deceiving men with false signs and wonders" (Lilly Library). A complete, unrestored copy. ESTC T70333; Moore 487.

        Schat-kamer ofte konst der stier-lieden, Amsterdam, Joannes Loots, 1702. With woodcut illustration of a ship's pilot with a plumb line and navigational instruments by Adriaan Le Duc (1693-1729) on title-page, 4 engraved plates (3 folding and 1 full-page).

De Tafelen der sinuum, tangentium en secantium, ofte der hoekmaten, raaklynen en snylynen. Amsterdam, Joannes Loots, 1702. Primarily with letterpress tables of logarithms and trigonometric functions, the present copy lacking those for logarithms. 2 parts in 1 volume. 8vo. Contemporary vellum.

      - Crone Library 373 & 374; cf. Bierens de Haan 5196 (1727 ed.); Cat. NHSM, p. 672 (1713 ed. plus 1707 ed. of Tafelen alone); STCN (1727 ed., plus 1707 ed. of Tafelen alone), WorldCat (1710 ed.). Very rare first edition of a standard practical manual on the art of navigation, by the virtually unknown Klaas de Vries, teacher of mathematics in Amsterdam. In the preface De Vries summarises the content of the book, which is profusely illustrated (mostly with diagrams) and includes letterpress tables of the tides, the time lag between the positions of the sun and moon for the years 1701-1710, the declination of the sun, etc., as well as 4 engraved plates of a compass rose, the use of the Jakob's staff, the "Platte Paskaart" and the "Wassende graadige paskaart". The work is concluded by sections on the winds one can encounter on the journey from Holland to the Dutch East Indies; how to sail to the East Indies in autumn, during monsoons, etc. Ad 2: The corrected Loots edition of tables of trigonometric functions and logarithms. The note to the reader explicitly states that the tables are based on those published by Adriaen Vlacq in 1665 (Tabulae sinuum .), but that they have been corrected, in part based on comparisons with the folio editions of Pitiscus for the trigonometric functions and Henry Briggs for the logarithms. The present copy lacks the tables of logarithms, but its collation and signing otherwise agrees with the somewhat irregular ones given in Crone. Good copy, the Schat-kamer complete with the errata leaf. The Tafelen lacks the two tables of logarithms (45 leaves, 2A1-M1). Binding somewhat dirty and stained, with the head of the spine chipped and cracked. [Attributes: First Edition]

      - Cat. Goldsmith I, 14728; Kress B2230; Sabin 97456. First separate edition of a revolutionary treatise on the relations between the American colonies and the colonising countries by the French economist Anne Robert Jacques Turgot (1727-1781). He explains his theory that the colonising countries should withdraw from the colonies on a friendly basis allowing the colonies to have their own goverment and trade with other countries independently. When the colonising countries would grant the colonies independence, they could still have the benefit of trading and settling there. The treatise was already composed in 1776 at the request of King Louis XVI, who solicited his ministers' opinions regarding the proper French policy toward the American Revolution. It was first published as Reflexions rédigées. in Mazzei's Recherches historiques et politiques (1788).A very good copy, only a few small spots. [Attributes: First Edition]

      Engraved vignette on title, folding map, & 60 engraved plates. Title-page printed in red and black, 7 p.l., 420 pp.; 1 p.l., 421-630 pp., [27] leaves. Two vols. in one. Thick 8vo, cont. speckled sheep, spine richly gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Leiden: J. van Abcoude, 1727. First edition in French (1st ed., in German: 1718), of this richly illustrated and scarce book; it is one of the best guides to Paris of the early 18th century. Nemeitz (1679-1753), a German scholar who traveled widely in Europe, served as a tutor for various members of the Italian and French nobility. Due to his profession, Nemeitz was familiar with many of the great cities of the Continent, where he sought out lesser-known "curiosities" as well as the standard sights. Following a two-year residence in Paris, he wrote the present work as a detailed guide. Not only does he provide "touristic" suggestions to go to gardens and cathedrals, he also instructs the reader on the skills necessary to ingratiate oneself with Parisian high society - fluency in German, French and Latin is essential, as well as a wide-ranging knowledge. The present work also contains profiles of prominent aristocrats and public figures such as Louis XV, the Duke of Orléans, the Prince of Condé, and the Archbishop of Paris. This book offers a rich perspective on the life of the upper-class in early 18th-century Paris with chapters discussing: "how one must dress," "conversation with the fairer sex," "coffee shops," "visiting public and private libraries," "necessary expenses," "preservation of health," and "in what season and what way one must see the royal chateaux around Paris." The 60 engraved plates depict the most famous buildings in Paris and its environs, accompanied by histories and architectural descriptions. Nice copy. This was a rather popular work which underwent several editions in both German and French. Unidentified 19th-century bookplate on front paste-down and early 20th-century engraved bookplate on verso of title. ? Brunet, Vol. IV, 36- "Il est curieux pour l'histoire de Paris au commencement du XVIIIe siècle." N.B.G., Vol. 37, cols. 649-50.

        The hermit: or, the unparallel'd sufferings and surprising adventures of Mr. Philip Quarll, an Englishman: who was lately discovered by Mr. Dorrington, a Bristol merchant, upon an uninhabited island in the South-Sea; where he has lived above fifty years, without any human assistance; still continues to reside, and will not come away.London, printed for J. Wren, J. Jefferies and J. Fuller, 1751. 12mo. With engraved frontispiece and engraved map. Contemporary tanned sheepskin.

      ESTC (7 copies); Gove, pp. 262-268; Howgego, Invented narratives, L45; cf. Sabin 66952; Ullrich IV, pp. 118-119. Rare third edition of a popular account of an imaginary voyage and robinsonade, written by Peter Longueville. The first edition was published in 1727, and "became an enormously popular work, rivalling Defoe's Robinson Crusoe , of which it is possibly the best imitation" (Howgego). The story tells about the imaginative Englishman Philip Quarll, who shipwrecked near an uninhabited island in the South Sea where he continued to live for almost fifty years. It starts with the voyage of the Bristol merchant Edward Dorrington, who discovered Quarll in 1725. He gives an extensive account of Quarll's life, starting with his adventures in England, where he married three wives before becoming a merchant seaman. Stranding on the island, he had to build a home and survive. The book relates remarkable events involving sea monsters and Quarll's pet monkey Beaufidelle. "Apart from occasional intrusions by bloodthirsty Indians and marauding Russian pirates, life in his 'second Garden of Eden' is carefree and idyllic, so much so that he refuses Dorrington's invitation to return to England" (Howgego).Somewhat browned, foxed and with a few marginal water stains. Overall a good copy. Corners of binding bumped and worn, hinges cracked, lacking the front flyleaf.

Contemporary tan calf, gold-tooled spine, gold triple fillet border on both sides, gold fillet on board edges, gold-tooled turn-ins, decorative endpapers (block-printed in gold), edges gilt over marbling.

      Einaudi 4024; Goldsmith 10507; Kress 6663; WorldCat (4 copies). Fine copy of an interesting and very extensive prospectus, by André Morellet (1727-1819), announcing a new commercial dictionary in 5 folio volumes and calling for subscriptions. He first explains why a new dictionary is needed, extensively describing the first commercial dictionary in Europe of Jacques Savary des Brûlons. He also mentions English dictionaries of commerce. He found all these dictionaries far from complete, omitting many interesting details and says they are not as universal as they claim. So in the present prospectus Morellet proposes a new, complete, universal commercial dictionary, and describes the differences between his planned dictionary and the existing ones. The prospectus is very detailed and well organised, no doubt because he needed to convince his public of the need for such an extensive and therefore probably expensive dictionary. Morellet worked on his dictionary for 20 years before the French Revolution interrupted him, but never published the dictionary itself.With a couple rust spots in the paper and occasional very minor foxing, but otherwise in fine condition. The binding shows a few scrapes and scratches on the boards and is slightly worn at the hinges, but still very good. A remarkably detailed record of a project that unfortunately never came to fruition.
