Joseph Pitton de Tournefort (1656-1708) est un botaniste français. Titulaire de la chaire de botanique du Jardin des plantes, il est mandaté par Louis XIV en 1700 pour se rendre au Levant, aussi bien pour étudier l'histoire naturelle que l'état du commerce dans cette région du monde. De cette expédition résulte sa Relation d'un voyage du Levant, publiée après sa mort et constituée de vingt-deux lettres adressées à Pontchartrain, secrétaire d'Etat de la Marine. Ce dernier l'avait recommandé auprès de Louis XIV pour mener le voyage en suivant deux objectifs : mener des recherches relevant de l'histoire naturelle (le peintre Claude Aubriet réalise à cet effet de nombreuses planches illustrant les plantes locales) mais aussi de formuler des commentaires concernant les fortifications portuaires de la mer Noire ou encore les m

      Thomas Bowles (II) and John Bowles, c.1727., London, - Gibraltar after the Treaty of Utrecht Engraved sheet with four maps and four views, some coloured. Detailed composite sheet depicting Gibraltar, Majorca and Minorca, engraved by Sutton Nicholls (fl. ca. 1687 - 1725?), an engraver, map and printseller.The history of the plate is unclear; it seems likely that the sheet was first engraved and printed by Nicholls in about 1712-1713, at the end of the War of the Spanish Succession, to show Britain's gains, as confirmed by the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713.This printing bears the joint imprint of Thomas Bowles (II) and John Bowles, the latter's address dateable to 1727, also the occasion of Spain's second attempt to recapture Gibraltar, an appropriate time to reprint the plate. Nicholls disappears from view between 1728 and 1731, and it may be that the plate was acquired by the Bowles brothers at this point, and some additions made to the main plan (re-engraving visible in the key) to bring the plate up to date.The main part of the plate is 'An Exact Plan o the Town, Castle, Mole and Bay of Gibraltar Likewise the Approaches of ye Spaniards in the Last War. .'; there are also views of Gibraltar from differing aspects, emphasising the strong defensive nature of the peninsula.If there is a [1712-1713] printing, no exemplar is recorded; this surmised second state has been found in two institutional locations: the BL and Cambridge University Library. It was advertised by the brothers in the Daily Post (issue 2290) for 25th January, 1727 as, "This Day is publish'd, curiously engraved on a Sheet of Paper . with the Approaches of the Spaniards in the last War, with the Addition of the new Works ?Ä ". 465 by 570mm.

      - Four folding engraved plates. Title printed in red & black. 2 p.l., xi, 372 pp., 2 leaves of ads. 8vo, cont. panelled calf (minor rubbing). London: J. Woodman & D. Lyon, 1727. First edition and a lovely copy. Bradley (1688-1732), first professor of botany at Cambridge, was one of the earliest British writers to treat agriculture as a science. His writings were prolific, including about twenty volumes dealing with agriculture. This book is one of his most important. "Cost of production was beginning to interest farmers more then it had done. For a hundred years the business had been steadily becoming more commercial. Instead of being rich because he grew a lot to eat, a man was beginning to find that he was only rich if he grew a lot to sell, and naturally he wanted to sell at a profit. To do that he must know what it cost him to grow the produce?and so writers began to insert costings in their books and Bradley was one of the earliest to do this. The Complete Body contains numerous costs, but I suspect they were of common knowledge rather than anything more immediately collected and closely scrutinized, yet they must have been accurate enough by the author's readers as not unreasonable."-Fussell, I, pp. 111-12. Fine crisp copy. ? D.S.B., II, p. 390. [Attributes: First Edition]

Holzschnitt-Wappen-Exlibris auf Spiegel "Ad Bibliothecam Episcopal. Spirens". Sehr seltener Titel. Hermann Conring (* 9. November 1606 in Norden 12. Dezember 1681 in Helmstedt), war Polyhistor und Reichspublizist, sowie Leibarzt der Königin Christina von Schweden, dänischer Staatsrat und Leiter des bremen-verdischen Archivs in Stade. Conring gilt als Nestor der deutschen Rechtswissenschaft und war einer der bekanntesten Gelehrten seiner Zeit, der allen großen Fürsten seiner Zeit, so auch Ludwig XIV. von Frankreich als Berater zur Seite stand. Sein Hauptwerk ist "De origine iuris Germanici" (vom Ursprung des deutschen Rechtes, editio prima: 1643), das die deutsche Rechtsgeschichte zum Rang einer eigenständigen Disziplin erhob. Aber auch der Titel "De Habitus Corporum Germanicorum Antiqui ac Novi Causis", der hier zum Kauf angeboten wird, zählt zu seinen wichtigen juristischen Schriften.

        A Map of the Coast of Spain, from the Streights of Gibralter to the Gulf of Cartagena. S. Parker sculpt. Sold by H: Overton and I. Hoole at the White | Horse without Newgate London.A New PLAN of the Garrison of GIBRALTER, with its fortifications &c. 1726.

      Henry Overton (I) and John Hoole,, London, 1727 - The siege of Gibraltar Two engraved maps printed on a single sheet. Very scarce composite sheet depicting Gibraltar from the siege of 1727; the sheet bears a general map of the south-eastern coast of Spain from Seville and Cadiz to Cartagena, with an inset of the Straits of Gibraltar (194 x 469 mm); printed below, from a second plate, is a plan of Gibraltar's fortifications (195 x 471 mm).The partnership of Overton and Hoole can be dated, from newspaper advertisements located thus far, from 6th August, 1724 to 8th - 10th May, 1733. A joint catalogue, dated 1734, probably denotes the partners' attempts to liquidate their joint assets, although the partnership finally ended with Hoole's death on 25th December, 1734. The map of the coast of Spain is here in its first recorded state, with the blank inset frame at bottom right. In the second state, a map of Minorca was inserted there. COPAC records only one example of the second state, in the British Library.

"Each issue consisted of Houghton's lengthy editorial, plus one or more letters, covering all aspects of agriculture and land improvement and occasionally venturing into matters of commerce or popular science and technology; they dealt with matters then under active discussion by progressive agriculturalists. Houghton was the first to remark on the cultivation of the potato as a field crop, just beginning at the time (.) His correspondents included many small farmers, countrywomen, rural merchants, and husbandmen such as John Worlidge, besides his fellow members of the Royal Society, among them John Evelyn, John Flamsteed, Edmond Halley, and Robert Plot."

        Bibliotheca Menckeniana, quae Autores praecipue Veteres Graecos et Lat. Historiae item Literariae, Eccl. et Civilis, Antiquitatum ac Rei Nummariae scriptores, Philologos, Oratores, Poetas et Codices MSS. complectitur.

      - Engraved frontis. port. of J.B. Mencke. Title printed in red & black. 8 p.l. (incl. frontis.), 876 pp., [82] leaves. Thick 8vo, orig. limp boards (occasional minor foxing), uncut. Leipzig, J.F. Gleditsch & Son, 1727. Second edition, much enlarged (1st ed.: 1723) and a very lovely copy in original state; this was a very influential catalogue and was considered in its time to be the model of a universal bibliography. The Menckeniana is a catalogue of a specialized library particularly interesting to students of history and the history of learning. It was open to the public. The library was created by Otto Mencke (1644-1707), professor of moral philosophy at Leipzig University and founder of the Acta Eruditorum, the first great German scholarly journal. Mencke bequeathed the library to his son Johann Burckhard (1674-1732), professor of history at the same institution. The first edition of the Menckeniana was exhausted in two years, suggesting how important the catalogue was considered by other scholars. In the Preface to the second and larger edition of 1727 Mencken writes about serving scholars and complains about the difficulty of recovering books that had been lent. There is no suggestion at the time that he contemplated the sale of his library, but within a year he issued small priced catalogues and within five years he had disposed of his books. As we can see, an owner's catalogue can be an incidental means of selling a library. The largest part of the library was purchased in 1730 by Bünau and the remainder was auctioned in 1732. The catalogue contains one of the earliest instances of a frontispiece portrait in a library catalogue. The final leaves contain an author index, one of the earliest examples found in a private library catalogue. A very fine copy in original state. ? Folter 528.

London: W. Innvs, R. Manby, & T. Woodward, 1733. First editions and a very fine, fresh, and crisp set in matching bindings; these are great classics of experimental science. This set belonged to the great biologist Abraham Trembley (1710-84), who is best known for his pioneer studies of hydra; he has been called "the father of experimental zoology." He has signed the title-page at the foot of Vol. I (along with the maiden name of his wife, Strassen). In the first volume, Hales "studied the movement of sap in plants and discovered what is now known as root pressure. He measured the amount of water lost by plants through evaporation and related this to the amount of water present in a given area of soil in which the plants were growing. He estimated rain and dewfall in this connexion, measured the rate of growth of shoots and leaves, and investigated the influence of light on plants. He experimented on gases and found that they were obtainable from plants by dry distillation. He was the first to realize that carbon dioxide was supplied to plants by the air and formed a vital part of the plant's food supply. These experiments led the way to those of Ingenhousz and de Saussure, while his ideas on combustion and respiration facilitated the discoveries of Black, Lavoisier and Priestley. "The second volume contains the studies in blood pressure which make Hales one of the founders of modern experimental physiology. The application of the principle of the pressure-gauge or manometer enabled him to measure blood pressure during the contraction of the heart. He computed the circulation rate and estimated the velocity of the blood in the veins, arteries and capillary vessels and by showing that the capillary vessels are liable to constriction and dilation he made an important contribution both to the study of physiology and the practice of the physician of today.Hales's work marked the greatest advance in the physiology of the circulation between Harvey and the introduction of the mercury manometer and other instruments for the measurement of blood pressure by J. L. M. Poiseuille in 1828."-Printing & the Mind of Man 189. Uniformly bound sets of first editions are of great rarity. ? I & II: Horblit 45a & b. I: Dibner, Heralds of Science, 26. II: Garrison-Morton 765-"the single greatest contribution to our knowledge of the vascular system after Harvey, and led to the development of the blood-pressure measuring instruments now in universal use.".

        L Empire de la Chine

      Artist: Bonne Rigobert (-1795) Paris; issued in: Paris ; date: 1779 1727 - - technic: Copper print ; colorit: colored ; condition: Very good ; size in cm : 47 x 54 - description: Map shows total China with Corea. - Vita of the artist: Rigobert Bonne (1727?1795) was one of the most important cartographers of the late 18th century.In 1773 Bonne succeeded Jacques Nicolas Bellin as Royal Cartographer to France in the office of the Hydrographer at the Depôt de la Marine. Working in his official capacity, Bonne compiled some of the most detailed and accurate maps of the period. Bonne?s work represents an important step in the evolution of the cartographic ideology away from the decorative work of the 17th and early 18th century towards a more detail oriented and practical aesthetic. With regard to the rendering of terrain Bonne maps bear many stylistic similarities to those of his predecessor, Bellin. However, Bonne maps generally abandon such common 18th century decorative features such as hand coloring, elaborate decorative cartouches, and compass roses.While mostly focusing on coastal regions, the work of Bonne is highly regarded for its detail, historical importance, and overall aesthetic appeal.

"Each issue consisted of Houghton's lengthy editorial, plus one or more letters, covering all aspects of agriculture and land improvement and occasionally venturing into matters of commerce or popular science and technology; they dealt with matters then under active discussion by progressive agriculturalists. Houghton was the first to remark on the cultivation of the potato as a field crop, just beginning at the time (...) His correspondents included many small farmers, countrywomen, rural merchants, and husbandmen such as John Worlidge, besides his fellow members of the Royal Society, among them John Evelyn, John Flamsteed, Edmond Halley, and Robert Plot." (ODNB). Included are letters on the wine trade and wine making as well as curing decayed wines and helping defective wines.

      Four folding engraved plates. Title printed in red & black. 2 p.l., xi, 372 pp., 2 leaves of ads. 8vo, cont. panelled calf (minor rubbing). London: J. Woodman & D. Lyon, 1727. First edition and a lovely copy. Bradley (1688-1732), first professor of botany at Cambridge, was one of the earliest British writers to treat agriculture as a science. His writings were prolific, including about twenty volumes dealing with agriculture. This book is one of his most important. "Cost of production was beginning to interest farmers more then it had done. For a hundred years the business had been steadily becoming more commercial. Instead of being rich because he grew a lot to eat, a man was beginning to find that he was only rich if he grew a lot to sell, and naturally he wanted to sell at a profit. To do that he must know what it cost him to grow the produce…and so writers began to insert costings in their books and Bradley was one of the earliest to do this. The Complete Body contains numerous costs, but I suspect they were of common knowledge rather than anything more immediately collected and closely scrutinized, yet they must have been accurate enough by the author's readers as not unreasonable."-Fussell, I, pp. 111-12. Fine crisp copy. ? D.S.B., II, p. 390.

        Bibliotheca Menckeniana, quae Autores praecipue Veteres Graecos et Lat. Historiae item Literariae, Eccl. et Civilis, Antiquitatum ac Rei Nummariae scriptores, Philologos, Oratores, Poetas et Codices MSS. complectitur..

      Engraved frontis. port. of J.B. Mencke. Title printed in red & black. 8 p.l. (incl. frontis.), 876 pp., [82] leaves. Thick 8vo, orig. limp boards (occasional minor foxing), uncut. Leipzig, J.F. Gleditsch & Son, 1727. Second edition, much enlarged (1st ed.: 1723) and a very lovely copy in original state; this was a very influential catalogue and was considered in its time to be the model of a universal bibliography. The Menckeniana is a catalogue of a specialized library particularly interesting to students of history and the history of learning. It was open to the public. The library was created by Otto Mencke (1644-1707), professor of moral philosophy at Leipzig University and founder of the Acta Eruditorum, the first great German scholarly journal. Mencke bequeathed the library to his son Johann Burckhard (1674-1732), professor of history at the same institution. The first edition of the Menckeniana was exhausted in two years, suggesting how important the catalogue was considered by other scholars. In the Preface to the second and larger edition of 1727 Mencken writes about serving scholars and complains about the difficulty of recovering books that had been lent. There is no suggestion at the time that he contemplated the sale of his library, but within a year he issued small priced catalogues and within five years he had disposed of his books. As we can see, an owner's catalogue can be an incidental means of selling a library. The largest part of the library was purchased in 1730 by Bünau and the remainder was auctioned in 1732. The catalogue contains one of the earliest instances of a frontispiece portrait in a library catalogue. The final leaves contain an author index, one of the earliest examples found in a private library catalogue. A very fine copy in original state. ? Folter 528.

        A System of Magick; or, A History of the Black Art. Being an Account of Mankind's most early Dealing with the Devil; and how the Acquaintance on both Sides first begun

      London: J. Roberts, 1727. First edition, first issue. Covers detached. 8vo. [12], 403pp. Title printed in red-and-black. Engraved frontispiece depicting a magician in his study. Contemporary English blind-paneled calf. Provenance: Gilbert East (1793 inscription at title gutter). "Defoe again begins with a humorous preface, in which he explains that if anyone was expecting, based on the title, to find a work of science, "'a Book of Rules for Instruction in the Practice, or a Magical Grammar for Introduction to young Beginners, all I can say to such is, that they will be mistaken."' The work is instead a history of the practice of magic, beginning in ancient times and traced down to the present day. 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).

        Memoria istorica sopra l'avvenuto in Roma in occasione della Bolla Pretiosus Ben. XIII. [Rom, um 1727.]

      1727. Eigenh. Manuskript. 4 SS. 275:203 mm. Lose in Pappmappe. Folio. Vom Verfasser unterdrückt ("dentro le mani") und ausschließlich für die Nachwelt verfaßt, bringt dieses anscheinend unveröffentlichte Manuskript eine erbitterte Aufzählung der Reaktionen innerhalb der Kirche auf die umstrittenste Bulle Benedikt XIII., die "Bulla Pretiosus". Benedikt (1724-30), selbst Dominikaner, erlaubte damit den Dominikanern, die Augustinische Gnadendoktrin zu predigen. Besonders interessant ist das Manuskript deswegen, weil es offensichtlich auf Informationen fußt, die v. Kardinal Giambattista Salerni (1670-1729) herrühren, einem Favoriten Benedikts, der den polnischen König August zum Katholizismus bekehrt hatte. Zur Zeit der Abfassung des Manuskripts war der Jesuit Turani (auch Turano), päpstlicher Visitator in Sizilien u. Verfasser zahlreicher Abhandlungen (vgl. de Backer/S. VIII, 2709ff. u. L. Cardella, Memorie storiche de' cardinali VII, 190f.). - Aus der Sammlung Sir Thomas Phillipps (ex Ms. 7532).
