Its name implies a second part, and it is rumored that he wrote its manuscript before his death. It is also rumored that he was killed by members of the metallurgy/gunsmith/pyrotechnics guilds, who were opposed to him publishing a book about their secrets, and that they hid or destroyed the manuscript of the second part. Siemienowicz disparaged what he saw as a culture of secrecy based on "canting Alchymists of the times Past...they dealed in nothing but Smoke, yet arrogantly took upon them to be Professors of so noble and excellent an art as Chymistry."Artis Magnae Artilleriae pars prima was first printed in Amsterdam in 1650, was translated to French in 1651, German in 1676, English and Dutch in 1729 and Polish in 1963.In the first part of his work he also wrote that the second one would contain the universal pyrotechnic invention, containing all of our current knowledge. According to his short description, this invention was supposed to greatly ease all measurements and calculations.BACKGROUND: Kazimierz Siemienowicz (born c. 1600 - c. 1651), was a Polish-Lithuanian general of artillery, gunsmith, military engineer, artillery specialist and pioneer of rocketry. Born in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, he served the armies of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, a federation of Poland and the Grand Duchy, and in the armies of Frederick Henry, Prince of Orange, a ruler of the Netherlands. No portrait or detailed biography of him has survived and much of his life is a subject of dispute.CONDITION:Condition is Good+/Very Good.  Some wear to edges/boards, bookplate Wm. Granville Eliot Esq., fading to gold borders, very light blemishing to title, some margins, most pages/hinges/text block are very good for over 285 years old!!!

DU 29. NOVEMBRE 1729

      Paris: de l'Imprimerie Royale, 1729.. 20pp. Quarto. Contemporary inscription. Very minor foxing. Fine. A very rare decree confirming the privileges of the Compagnie des Indes. This Arrest was "prompted by the unloading from a Dutch boat coming from Alexandria and the public sale in Dunkirk, a free port, of a certain quantity of coffee. The interesting legal point is here raised as to the validity of the Company's privileges, in this case as regards its coffee monopoly, in a free port" - Maggs. Wroth does not cite any locations for this title, only mentioning that it had been reprinted in LE COMMERCE DE L'AMÉRIQUE (Avignon, 1764). OCLC cites only a single copy, at the James Ford Bell Library. From the library of Cardinal Etienne Charles de Lomenie de Brienne (1727-1794), Minister of Louis XVI, Archibishop of Toulouse and of Sens. A friend of Voltaire and a member of the Académie Française, Brienne wielded significant power as as head of the Finance Ministry, which earned him many enemies. He died in prison during the French Revolution, despite having renounced Catholicism in 1793 (presumably as an attempt to save his life). MAGGS, FRENCH COLONISATION OF AMERICA 346 (this copy).

        Die Geduld. („Patience").

      - Kupferstich in Punktiermanier, in mehreren Farben, von W.W. Ryland (1729 oder 1732-1783), auf Bütten. Darstellung im Hochoval. 37,7:29 cm. Published London 1777. Literatur: Nagler 19; Le Blanc 25; Boerner 1979, vgl. 185; vgl. Ausst. Katalog: Angelika Kauffmann. Ein Weib von ungeheurem Talent. Hrsg. von T.G. Natter. Bregenz 2007, Nr. 150 (Rotdruck). Illustration zu William Mason, Caractacus. Angelika Kauffmann war eine der berühmtesten Malerinnen ihrer Zeit. Bereits als 11jährige galt sie als Wunderkind. Als Tochter des Porträt- und Freskenmalers J.J. Kauffmann (1702-1782), der ihr erster Lehrer war, wurde Kauffmanns zeichnerisches und musikalisches Talent schon im Kindesalter erkannt und gefördert. Die beiden ersten Italienaufenthalte in den Jahren 1754-1757 und 1758-1766 brachten entscheidende künstlerische Impulse sowie die Verbindung zu zahlreichen potenziellen Auftraggebern. 1766 ließ sie sich in England nieder, wo sie zahlreiche Porträtaufträge von Hof und Adel erhielt. Nach der Heirat mit dem Maler A. Zucchi (1726-1795) siedelte sie 1782 nach Rom über, wo sie ebenfalls bald zu einer der gefeiertsten Künstlerinnen ihrer Zeit avancierte. Auch für die deutschen Romreisenden war ihr Atelier eine wichtiger Treffpunkt, insbesondere für den Weimarer Kreis um Goethe, Herder, die sie beide porträtierte, und Herzogin Anna Amalia von Sachsen-Weimar. Neben ihrer Porträttätigkeit betrieb Angelika Kauffmann ebenso erfolgreich die Historienmalerei. So führte sie Aufträge u.a. für Kaiser Joseph II. und für das russische Herrscherhaus aus. Bereits 1762 wurde sie Ehrenmitglied der Accademia Bologna und 1765 ordentliches Mitglied der Accademia di San Luca zu Rom. Zudem beteiligte sie sich 1768 an der Gründung der Royal Academy; gemeinsam mit Mary Moser (1744-1819), einer der berühmtesten Malerinnen Englands, gehörte sie zu deren einzigen weiblichen Mitgliedern.

        Esame, e difesa del decreto pubblicato in Pudiscerì da Monsignor Carlo Tommaso di Tournon. Approvato, e Confermato con Breve dal Sommo Pontefice Benedetto XIII.

      nella Stamperia Vaticana,, In Roma, 1729 - Cm. 20,5, pp. lxii (1) 492 + (2) d'errata. Frontespizio in rosso e nero con vignetta centrale, alcuni capolettera tetate e finalini incisi in rame e quattro tavole fuori di cui due raffiguranti simboli ed una ripiegata con la pianta di una chiesa. Legatura in piena pergamena con titolo ms. al dorso (rimontata). Aloni chiari marginale alle prime ed ultime carte, peraltro esemplare marginoso ed in buono stato di conservazione. Luigi Maria Lucino (Como 1666 - Roma 1745) testimonia in quest’opera, la sua più importante, l’insofferenza della Chiesa ufficiale relativa ai riti religiosi locali, che i Gesuiti non avevano ritenuto opportuno proibire. Appoggia e giustifica il decreto promulgato dal Cardinale di Tournon nel 1704; quest’ultimo aveva viaggiato prima in India (Pondicherry) e poi in Cina con l’incarico di rafforzare l’intolleranza verso i suddetti riti. Ne risulta un prezioso documento relativo alla storia delle relazioni tra l’Europa ed i paesi asiatici ed una delle più complete descrizioni dei riti malabarici e cinesi.

      Greece: LugduniBatavorum" /Leiden "Par Pierre van der Aa, Marchand Libraire, Imprimeurde l'Univerite et de la Ville." 1729. Copper engraved map of Greece after Ortelius from Pieter van der Aa's " La Galerie Agreable du Monde." Original old colour; folded; verso blank. This scarce map from van der Aa's monumental work is even more rare with original colour. The area of Greece is with full wash colour whilst the surrounding countries have outline colour. Decorative title cartouche on blank pedestal, with ornamented scale [ both black and white as issued]. A version of the map also appears in the " Thesaurus Graecarum Antiquitatum" of J.Gronovius published by van der Aa between 1697 & 1702 [ Zacharakis Map 49] but with a different title, therefor sole edition thus. Dark impression; general toning ; bright original old colour; folded with short split on fold [10mm] below scale. Pieter van der Aa 1659-1733 Pieter van der Aa was a publisher, editor and bookseller of Leiden. He started as a bookseller at the age of twenty-three. In 1682 he is mentioned as the owner of a bookshop and auction house and by 1692 was one of the High commissioners of the Booksellers' Guild. As a publisher his output was varied and prodigious though his main interest was the production of maps and atlases, which he printed in all sizes. He published two extensive works in multiple volumes; the "Naaukeurige versameling der Gedenkwaardigste see-enland-reysen"[ "Collection of memorable sea and land voyages"] published 1706-1708 in 28 volumes and" La Galerie Agreable du Monde" 66 parts in 27 volumes, completed in 1729 and containing over 3 000 maps of which it is said only 100 sets were published (Tooley, p. 1) ;as well as various atlases such as the "Atlas Nouveau" completed circa 1710 and other illustrated books, Acquiring the map plates of earlier cartographers and map mappers, van der Aa was famous for re-issuing several important maps in the eighteenth century. Many of these maps were engraved by well-known Dutch engravers such as Luiken, Goeree and Stoopendael, and are typical examples of early eighteenth-century map production.

Rebacked preserving original spine, neat restoration to extremities, a fine copy. The rare first edition of the first book with coloured plates to include American birds. Bird books were popular in eighteenth century England, both as works of scholarship and as splendid collectables for the libraries of wealthy connoisseurs. The naturalist Mark Catesby (1683-1749) born in Essex, produced one of the most lavish of these with this magnificent work, the result of a series of voyages to North America. "He seems to have been educated locally in spite of having affluent parents, forgoing a university education, but benefiting from the antiquarian and botanical knowledge of his grandfather Nicholas Jekyll, who was acquainted with the naturalist John Ray. Ray greatly influenced Catesby; Samuel Dale, an apothecary at Braintree, not far from Sudbury where Catesby lived, was also of great importance to him. Catesby raised the means for starting on a voyage in 1712 to Virginia where he stayed with his aunt Elizabeth Cocke and her physician husband. He studied botany and wildlife there for seven years. Catesby returned to England in 1719 with a collection of dried plants, reported to have been the most perfect ever brought into the country, which attracted the attention of men of science, especially Sir Hans Sloane and Dr Sherard. Catesby remained in England for some time, arranging and naming his specimens, a considerable number of which passed into Sloane's museum (thereafter into the British Museum and ultimately the Natural History Museum). With assistance from Sloane and others, Catesby went again to America in 1722 and sent from Carolina to his English subscribers large quantities of biological material. He also prepared for himself large drawings of birds, reptiles, fish, and plants, and explored the Bahama Islands in 1725" (ODNB). Returning to England in 1726, he studied etching to make the illustrations for his own works. As well as birds, Catesby also depicted flowers and the coralline reefs of the Bahamas. The Natural history of Carolina ... became the most authoritative treatment of the natural history of British North America before the American Revolution. A self-taught naturalist, he not only drew all the plates bar two by Ehret, he also coloured all 156 sets himself, a total of some 34,320 plates! Apart from his fame as an author and illustrator, Catesby's name lives on in the modern name for the bullfrog, Rana catesbeiana, and Lilium catesbaei, the Southern Red, or Catesby's Lily. His is a beautiful book, not as polished as the later works of the great age of bird illustration, or the botanical works of the great continental artists such as Ehret, but it is the first book to cover the subject in such depth and presents a powerful ecological view of nature: "Catesby played in identifying and recording botanical varieties previously unknown to English audiences Moreover, his birds, snakes, and squirrels all seem to reflect human personalities as they are placed side-by-side with the novel botanicals that captured his attention. These thoughtful portrayals emphasize Catesby's ecological aesthetic - his work cannot be viewed as rigid still-lives - for he presented his subjects with powerful fluidity and he depicted them within interdependent environments. With an understanding of Catesby's ecologically-sensitive vision, the dedication that led him to document these natural wonders so carefully, and the intricate hand-colouring process he employed for almost two decades to produce such exquisite prints, we see his emphasis on the interdependence of all species and the symbiotic nature of the environment he attempted to capture" (Milwaukee Art Museum). "Mark Catesby made a valuable and important contribution to ornithological illustration. He was confident enough to break new ground to portray his birds more naturally than before, with foliage backgrounds, and to adopt the folio format. He depicted the natural history of one area in its entirety, and often drew from living models. He was the first in a long line of ornithologists to teach himself to translate his drawings into a medium that produced multiple copies. As his was the earliest published natural history of a part of the New World, he has been called 'the father of American ornithology'" (Jackson).

Mr. Roberts' Adventures and Sufferings amongst the Corsairs of the Levant

      London: Printed for James and John Knapton, 1729. Four volumes, octavo, with many engraved plates and maps; bookplate in each volume; contemporary sprinkled calf, maroon leather labels; spines very lightly rubbed, but a most attractive set. FINISHED. A fine set of the collected edition of Dampier. The 1729 collected edition of Dampier, "considered by many to be the best edition" (Hill). Dampier's books were all but devoured by an enthusiastic reading public, meaning that the great majority of copies still in existence are very worn indeed, making this handsome set in contemporary binding a rare survival.Dampier is best known of course as the first Englishman to land on the Australian continent, and along with his interesting observations on Shark Bay and the northwest coast of Australia his books are particularly good on the flora and fauna of the region (many of his bird, fish and flower discoveries are illustrated with charming woodcut illustrations). As James A. Williamson wrote in his introduction to the Argonaut Press's 1939 edition of the Voyage to New Holland, "Dampier's permanent service to his countrymen was to arouse their interest in the exploration of the Pacific. He did it so effectively that in the eighteenth century they took the lead in revealing the tropical islands and the coasts of Australia and New Zealand...". This Australian emphasis should be seen in the wider context of Dampier's complete works as a major body of Pacific description, of considerable importance for any study of the discovery and colonisation of the entire region. In fact, at the end of the seventeenth-century Dampier was petitioning the English and Scottish governments to colonise Panama as a stepping-stone to further exploration of the Pacific, leading to the ill-fated Darien colony: if Darien had succeeded, it is not an idle speculation to suggest that the British incursion into the Pacific might have taken place some 70 years earlier than Cook's famous voyages. And, of course, Dampier himself was bitterly disappointed by the fact that his ship HMS Roebuck became unseaworthy just at the point when he had hoped to sail for the east coast of New Holland.Dampier's first book was published in 1697, an account of his early voyaging in the Pacific and Indian Oceans, while his account of the famous voyage of HMS Roebuck appeared in two parts in 1703 and 1709. All of his works were issued by the enterprising published Knapton, who also issued the narratives of other buccaneers, many of whom were colleagues of Dampier. As a result, in 1729, with interest in Dampier unabated, Knapton decided to issue this collected edition, with three volumes devoted to Dampier himself, and a fourth containing Funnell's critical account of the Dampier voyage as well as the narratives of Cowley, Sharp, Wood and Roberts. Knapton used the latest editions of each of the four volumes with a new general title-page to produce the collected edition as it appears here; thus the first volume is in its "seventh edition, corrected" form, while the others are represented by third or fourth edition texts.

His best known work was theHe became an important member of the Court, regularly consulted for advice on commerce and finance.Mahmoud, one of his earliest works, is an historical allegory which displays many of the classic traits of the utopian genre, in particular the spurious claim to have been translated from an Arabic original, and a Preface which gives a realistic frame to the work by introducing a sketchy history of the Caliphate. The work was quickly recognized as 'une satire de la régence' (NBG).This is an attractive copy, with the armorial bookplate of John West, first Earl de la Warr, eighteenth century English politician and soldier.

        The History of the rise and fall of Masaniello the fisherman of Naples, containing an exact and impartial relation of the tumults and popular insurrections, that happened in that Kingdom (in the year 1647) on account of the tax upon fruits.

      Davis- Green 1729 - Londres, Davis- Green, 1729. In 8 de [2]-XII-226-1 f. n. ch. (catalogue de librairie), reliure en pleine basane fauve de l'époque, dos à 5 petits nerfs orné de caissons dorés de de petits fleurons finement dorés, pièce de titre de maroquin marron, titre doré, plats ornés de doubles filets d'encadrement estampés, guirlandes d'encadrement concentrique sur les plats avec à chaque angle externe de celles-ci un fleuron estampé, roulette estampée sur toutes les coupes, titre en noir et rouge sur la page de titre, tranches citron très légèrement mouchetées de rouge, coiffes et mors légèrement frottés, portrait gravé de Masaniello au frontispice, ex-libris contrecollé à l'envers sur le deuxième contreplat à la fin du volume, bel exemplaire. Ce volume est un compte rendu de la révolte contre les espagnols qui advint au milieu XVIIème siècle, conduite et dirigée par Masaniello, un vendeur de poissons âgé de 25 originaire d'Amalfi dont le véritable nom était Tommaso Aniello. Son histoire, romantique devint un sujet fécond qui alimenta nombres d'opéras, poèmes et chansons. A Naples, en 1647, sous domination Espagnole, (présence qui durera près de cinq siécles), une nouvelle taxe exorbitante fut établie sur les fruits et les légumes, qui étaient alors la base de l'alimentation de la majorité de la population pauvre de la ville. La population se révolta, dirigée par Masaniello elle érigea des barricades, assassina des soldats et des notables espagnols. Le viceroi, le Comte d'Arcos se réfugia dans le château Castelnuovo. Soutenu par une grande majorité des napolitains, Masaniello, refusa tout accord avec le représentant du Roi d’Espagne. Ce soutien ne dura que quelques jours. La population se retourna contre Masaniello, qui fut assassiné et décapité sur la place du marché, son corps fut ensuite brûlé en dehors de la ville par ceux qui l'avait fait leur porte parole. Plus tard, visiblement conscient de sa terrible erreur, le peuple napolitain, changeant à nouveau d'avis, rendit hommage au commerçant en organisant des obsèques somptueux. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
