        Tweejaarige reyze rondom de wereld , ter nader ontdekkinge der onbekende Zuydlanden, met drie schepen, in het jaar 1721

      Dordrecht: Johannes van Braam, 1728. Quarto, title-page printed in red and black, engraved folding map, engraved folding frontispiece and 4 engraved plates; contemporary blind tooled vellum (one hinge repaired). First full account of the discovery of Easter Island. Scarce first edition of the first detailed account of Roggeveen's memorable voyage into the Pacific and the discovery and naming of Easter Island.Sabin notes that 'the name of the author of this account of Roggeveen's voyage is unknown'; it is claimed to be based on Roggeveen's journals and is an entirely different text to that published eleven years later over the name of Carl Behrens, who travelled under Roggeveen as commander. Beverley Haun has argued (see below) that all expedition journals but that of Behrens were confiscated by the VOC when Roggeveen anchored in Batavia on the return journey; she attributes this text to "an anonymous sailor" who had in the previous year (1727) published a 15-page pamphlet with just two pages describing the Easter Island visit.Roggeveen was the last important Dutch explorer in Polynesia. His voyage ranked in importance with the great achievements of Tasman and of Le Maire and Schouten. Crossing the Pacific from the east at the head of a three-vessel expedition, he set out to rediscover the fabled southern continent or "Terra Australis" which Quiros had led the exploring world to believe existed, but in fact added substantially to the Dutch record of Polynesian discoveries.On Easter Day 1722 Roggeveen landed at the previously uncharted island which he therefore christened Easter Island. They were the first recorded European visitors to the island and the detailed description of the inhabitants, their extraordinary idols and their way of life is of great value. He described seeing 2000 to 3000 native inhabitants. The splendid engraved title produced by van Braam for this publication shows the Dutch landing at Easter Island, firing rifles at spear-carrying natives while an enormous statue is being sculpted in the background.After the Easter Island stop he sailed through the Tuamotus, and made various discoveries among the Manua islands in the Samoan group. There were enough small islands in this vast archipelago for the Dutch to claim numerous discoveries, although the names they bestowed on them have not lasted. When he anchored in Batavia his two ships were confiscated by the Dutch East India Company for infringing their trading monopoly.Although Roggeveen's voyage failed in its primary objective it provided strong motivation for the authorities who sent Cook out on his first voyage forty-six years later. "Sunday 13th (March 1774). In stretching in for the land we discovered people and those Monuments or Idols mentioned by the Authors of Roggeveen Voyage which left us no room to doubt but it was Easter Island" (Cook's Journal of the Resolution & Adventure, Beaglehole II p.338).An appendix gives an account of the shipwreck of the East-Indiaman Barneveld in 1719.Beverley Haun has written at length about this publication and particularly about the engraved illustrations in Inventing 'Easter Island' (University of Toronto Press, 2008).

        A View of Sir Isaac Newton's Philosophy.

      London: S. Palmer 1728 - First edition. 4to. (50), 407, (1) pp. Recent half speckled calf over marbled boards, spine with raised bands, gilt lettered red label, new endpapers, the old engraved bookplate of the Dukes of Leinster - the "Carton Library" - and an associated label preserved on the front pastedown. A very good copy. 12 folding plates plus numerous decorative head and tail pieces and initials. Pemberton encountered Newton late in the latter's life and though Newton was initially wary of the younger man, the two gradually became close correspondents. So much so, that Pemberton was entrusted to edit of the third edition of the Principia Mathematica, the last to appear in Newton's lifetime. Although this work is generally considered to offer no great insights into Newton's theories, it does provide a good introduction to the great scientist's work.

Christiani Langenheimii, 1731, Kl.4°, (2), 16 pp., 1 Taf.; feiner Pappband im Stil der Zeit; etwas fleckig.. Augustin Friedrich Walther, "geb. zu Wittenberg 26. Oct. 1688, studirte von 1705 ab an den Universitäten zu Wittenberg und Jena Med., machte von 1709 an eine wissenschaftl. Reise durch Holland und England, erwarb 1711 zu Wittenberg die philos., 1712 aber die med. Doctorwürde und habilitirte sich 1713 als Docent an der Universität Leipzig. Im Jahre 1723 erhielt er daselbst die Professur der Anatomie und Chirurgie, 1732 wurde er zum Physicus der Stadt Leipzig, sowie zum Professor der Pathologie, 1737 aber zum Professor der Therapie ernannt, in welcher Stellung er bis zu seinem nach langem schweren Leiden 12. Oct. 1746 erfolgten Tode verblieben ist. Walther war als Lehrer sehr geschätzt und hat seine Theilnahme au dem Gedeihen der Universität durch Stiftung eines ansehnlichen Stipendiums für 3 Studirende der Medicin, sowie dadurch bewiesen, dass er der Universitäts-Bibliothek einen sehr werthvollen Theil seiner eigenen Bibliothek vermacht hat. Walther's literar, Arbeiten (sämmtlich in Leipzig erschienen) beziehen sich auf Botanik (er war von 1730 an Director des botan. Gartens), Anatatomie und Physiologie, Materia medica, sowie allgemeinen und speciellen Patholologie, und Therapie, zum Theil auch auf Chirurgie. Von vorwiegender Bedeutung sind jedoch seine Leistungen auf dem Gebiete der Anatomie, und zwar ganz besonders die Beiträge zur Myologie und Angiologie. Ausserdem verdienen Erwähnung Walther's Untersuchungen über den Bau der Herzohren, über einige Ausführungsgänge der Gland. sublinguales, sowie über den Bau des Trommelfells, auf deren Grund er zum Theil ganz neue Ansichten aufgestellt hat. Die Mehrzahl der letztgenannten Abhandlungen (mit wenigen Ausnahmen als akad. Gelegenheitsschriften veröffentlicht) hat HALLER wieder abdrucken lassen in seinen Disp. anat. (I-VI), den Disp. ad morb. hist. (III), den Disp. chir. (V). Von den übrigen Schriften verdienen Erwähnung: "De usu et praestantia solidioris in anatomicis scientia" (1723) - "Uterus gravidarum" (1723) - "Arteriae coeliacae tabulau" (1729) - "Tabula nova plantae humani pedis (teneriores musculos atque ligam. ossium doc.)" (1731) - "De loto aegyptiaca in nummis antiquis" (1746) - "De silphio in veterum nummis ac diversis plantarum speciebus" (1746). Die Acta eruditorum enthalten folgende Abhandlungen Walther's: "Sarcoceles eximiae historia" (1725) - "Descriptio penis monstrosi" (1729) - "Anatome duorum hemiosorum" (1731)." Winter, Hirsch-H.

        A Miscellany of Poems By Several Hands. Publish'ed by J[ohn] Husbands

      Printed by Leon. Lichfield. First edition.. Some foxing, particularly to the title-page and prelims; front free endpaper chipped at the fore-edge; very good copy.. Fleeman 31.10HM/1; Courtney 1; Chapman & Hazen, page 123. 8vo, 18th century sprinkled calf skillfully rebacked, later marbled endpapers, red morocco label, gilt rules and lettering. A miscellany of 61 poems (all but 15 of them by the editor John Husbands) which contains the first published work of Samuel Johnson, a translation into Latin verse of Pope's Messiah, done as an exercise in November 1728 for his Pembroke College tutor, William Jorden. Johnson's seven-page translation in 119 lines was executed with his usual scholarly enthusiasm and impressive (and later legendary) ability to work fast. He completed the task in little over a day. (See Jackson Bate, Samuel Johnson, pages 91-93). It has been claimed that there was a separate printing of Johnson's Messiah prior to this publication. A copy has never been found, though Husbands's Miscellany is still sometimes qualified as being the first "surviving" publication of any of Johnson's works. John Husbands (1706-1732) was also a young scholar at Pembroke College Oxford, but few facts are known about this life, and his claim to fame is as Johnson's first editor. At an early juncture in the 100-page preface, Husbands notes Johnson's contribution: "The translation of Mr. Pope's Messiah was delivered to his tutor, as a college exercise, by Mr. Johnson, a commoner of Pembroke College in Oxford, and 'tis hoped will be no discredit to the excellent original.? In the remaining preface Husbands writes about poetry in general and its models and types. For an interesting article on Husbands's Miscellany, see An Early Eighteenth-Century Enthusiast for Primitive Poetry, Modern Language Notes, January, 1922. Bookplates of Frank Brewer Bemis and Frederick Whiley Hilles on the front paste-down; small Yale University ink stamp on the verso of the title page; deaccessioned by Yale and sold by C. A. Stonehill of New Haven to collector Paula Peyraud in November, 1985. See Peyraud Sale lot 310.

        Chymie expérimentale et raisonnée.Paris, Pierre François Didot le jeune, 1773. 3 volumes. 8vo. With a different engraved vignette on the title-page of each volume by Jean Michel Moreau Le Jeune, an engraved frontispiece portrait of the author by Charles Nicolas Cochin and 12 folding engraved plates. Contemporary French mottled calf, spines richly gold-tooled, marbled endpapers and edges.

      Ferguson, Bib. Chem., I, pp. 83-84; Schelenz, Gesch. der Pharmazie, p. 563; Sotheran 6050; Wellcome, p. 118; DSB I, p. 527. Mathew Boulton's fine copy of the first and best edition of a thorough handbook of practical chemistry by one of France's most distinguished 18th-century chemists, pharmacists and equipment makers, with 12 plates showing a wide variety of furnaces, boilers, distilling equipment and other glassware, crucibles, etc. Baumé (1728-1804) worked for decades as a pharmacist and designed and produced laboratory apparatus. The present book, his most important publication, grew out of a series of courses he taught in the years 1757 to 1772. At the end of the latter year he was elected to the Académie des Sciences. Distillation (including the distillation of wine) was one of his specialties. A fine copy, with the two-leaf cancel (volume I, pages 71-74), and with only a minor tear in the text of 1 leaf and an occasional minor spot. Bindings with minor damage to the spines, but still very good. With the eighteenth-century letterpress bookplates of Mathew Boulton. A fine copy of a classic chemistry manual, especially interesting as a source for Watt and Boulton's steam engine.

        A Night Dance by Men in Hapaee

      - This outstandingly detailed copper-plate engraving depicting a scene in Captain Cooks Journey. Overall this print measures 21.5" x 16". Captain James Cook (1728-1779) was a British navigator, explorer and cartographer with the Royal Navy. In 1766, Cook began what would be three separate voyages to the Pacific, studying, charting and documenting the Pacific and island inhabitants. The engravings and images produced from these great eighteenth-century voyages presented the world with scientific and ethnographic data, pictorial representations, and cartographic discoveries of the pacific from its northern reaches to its southern extremities for the very first time. For his third and final voyage beginning July 12th 1776, Captain Cook commanded HMS Resolution in search of the Northwest Passage. This voyage was different to his previous two, however. Britain was at war as its American colonies fought for their own sovereignty. The Declaration of Independence had been signed on the Fourth of July, just eight days before the Resolution sailed, and the already perilous journey was now also in danger of capture from American pirates ready to hold the vessels hostage on their voyage home. It is notable that Benjamin Franklin, American Minister to the court of France, wrote a letter requesting free passage for Cook, as a mark of respect for the man himself and also in recognition of the importance of the journey's mission. Overall this print is in good condition with some foxing and staining in margins. We will not be knowingly undersold on this work of art.

      S. Palmer, London 1728 - 407 pages. 27 x 20 cm. [A4-a4-c4,d1, *A4-*B4,B4-Fff4]. Twelve copper engraved fold-out plates. Engraved title, head and tail designs after John Pine and J. Grison. Pemberton, a physician studied medicine under Boerhaave. He was a member of the Royal Society to which he contributed many papers: one of which came to the attention of Newton, and thus, a long friendship ensued. Newton employed him to superintend the third edition of the "Principia." Pemberton saw much of Darwin in his old age. "Probably the most famous (popularization of Newtonian philosphy) is that by Henry Pemberton.Pemberton's book is an excellent summary.So the reader of Pemberton would have emerged with a good idea of the whole Newtonian achievement, in the realm of physics. The presentation is relatively non mathematical.his remarks on what Newton believed are of great interest and the anecdotes are well founded." [see: KNIGHT. pp.66-67]. List of Subscribers.

        Atlas maritimus & commercialis; or, a general view of the world, so far as relates to trade and navigation / Sailing Directions for All the Known Coasts and Islands on the Glob, with a Sett of Sea-Charts

      London: James Knapton, 1728. Two parts in one volume. Illustrated with 53 of 54 fine uncolored copper plate maps, (last celestial chart is missing with a full size facsimile version provided from the British Library edition), and 5 fold-out diagrams tipped into the second text. Title page printed in black and red, foreword, preface, list of subscribers, and list of charts. Dedication page has a repair to the margin. "Atlas maritimus & commercialis," 340 pp. plus index. "General Coasting Pilot," 195 pp. plus maps. Page numbers written in ink. Elephant folio (21.25" x 13"), scuffing and corner wear to original brown leather binding, gilt spine in 8 compartments. Some toning and light scattered foxing to text and maps. Repairs to World Chart, North America chart and Celestial map along bottom fold out, small abrasion in margin of China map. Bookplate pasted down with Coat of Arms of Verney. This commercial sea atlas was published in 1728 as a guide to British global commerce. Today, it is a historically significant English overview of world trade during a rapid period of development of the British Empire's trading power. The atlas consists of two parts. The first is the "Atlas Maritimus & Commercialis" proper, which provides a geographical overview of the world as it relates to trade and navigation. It also gives an account of contemporary commerce, including the traded commodities of each country. The second part is "A General Coasting Pilot" by Nathaniel Cutler, which provides sailing directions. The volume was published anonymously, though the maps are often attributed to Sir Edmond Halley, the Astronomer Royal of Britain, who also wrote the prefatory note discussing the charts' use. The atlas's emphasis on commerce in addition to geography distinguishes it from "The English Pilot," the period's standard in maritime charts. It was also notable for covering the entire globe, including the south and west coasts of America, in one volume. This is an early issue of the Atlas, with A Chart of the Coast of Scotland on a globular projection. London: 1728.Sir Edmond Halley (1656--1742) was an English astronomer, geophysicist, mathematician, meteorologist, and physicist known for computing the orbit of the eponymous Halley's Comet. He was the second Astronomer Royal in Britain after John Flamsteed. John Senex (1678-1740) was a kind of Renaissance man of the 18th-century map world, working at times as a scholar, surveyor, engraver, astrologer, book seller and publisher of maps, atlases and globes. In a short period, he developed from an apprentice into one of the most important cartographers of the period and became a Fellow of the Royal Society of London, as well as Official Geographer to Queen Anne of Great Britain. A wonderful rarity about 'Globular Projection" maps which was invented by Halley, Harris and Senex. Includes the unforgettable large four sheet map "A Chart of the Atlantick Ocean Shewing the Coast from Texel to C. Cantin".

        Historia Plantarum Rariorum. Centuriae primae Decas 1-4 (of 5).

      - London, R. Reily, 1728 (-1737?). Folio (515 x 355 mm). pp. (6), iv, 42, including the engraved dedication leaf to the Royal Society, title printed in black and red, large engraved and mezzotint headpiece and initial printed in black and green at the opening of the preface, 40 mezzotint plates printed in colours and finished by hand, engraved by Elisha Kirkall after paintings by Jacob Van Huysum, Massey and G. Sartorys. Contemporary calf, later rebacked spine with red gilt lettered label. A fine copy of the first 4 parts without the final part with 10 more plates. It is the first botanical book illustrated with colour-printed plates. It is devoted to new species growing at the Chelsea Physic Garden and the Cambidge Botanic Garden. 'The work is of particular interest as it contains some of the earliest examples of colour-printing from a single metal plate. These plates were executed by Kirkall in a mixture of line engraving - for the titles and the coat of arms of the dedications - etchings, and mezzotinting. Many of the prints in the 'Historia' are printed in green but some are printed in two or more colours from a single plate at one impression. All were afterwards touched by hand' (Henrey II, p. 53). 30 of the fine plates are after Jacob van Huysum, a flower painter born at Amsterdam. He worked in England from about 1721 and was the brother of the famous Dutch flower painter Jan van Huysum. Each plate is dedicated to a patron-subscriber with an engraved coat-of-arms or monogram.The plates depict plants from Cape of Good Hope (a few Pelargosiums and a Mesem), North America and the West Indies.Great Flower Books, p. 118; Nissen BBI, 1289; Dunthorne 193.; Gunn & Codd, Botanical Exploration of Southern Africa, 63.
