Maria Sibylla Merian
Amsterdam, 1730. This charming, hand-colored entomology engraving is from Maria Sibylla Merian's "De Europische Insecten". This first Dutch edition of the work was published in Amsterdam by Jean Frederic Bernard in 1730. It was originally entitled "Der Raupen wunderbare Verwandelung und sonderbare Blumennahrung" when published in Nuremberg. --- Maria Sibylla Merian was a naturalist and artist. Her contributions to entomology were nevery truly acknowledged in her lifetime, but she is considered a groundbreaker in the fields of botany and zoology. She made detailed observations of live specimens, which was a departure from previous studies that used preserved specimens. She focused great detail on the processes of metamorphosis which had not been studied so comprehensively before her work. --- "Her portrayals of living insects and other animals were imbued with a charm, a minuteness of observation and an artistic sensibility that had not previously been seen in a natural history book". Merian's "artistic groupings of the insects amidst the tropical flora makes this book one of the most beautiful and unusual in the whole range of natural history" (Landwehr Dutch Books with Coloured Plates, p.28). --- Overall Very Good to Excellent. There may be a few minor marks, fox marks, or imperfections to be expected with age. Please review the image carefully for condition and contact us with any questions. [Attributes: First Edition]

Veel grond rondom de stad was eigendom van Amsterdammers. In de Middelpolder bijvoorbeeld, was in de 17e-eeuw ongeveer de helft van de grond in bezit van Amsterdamse instellingen, de andere helft was van particuliere Amsterdammers. In de Groot Duivendrechterpolder gold hetzelfde: omdat ook daar Amsterdammers en instellingen land hadden, moesten drie van de gekozen molenmeesters afkomstig zijn uit de stad. De stad kreeg op alle niveaus invloed op de processen die de inrichting van het platteland bepaalden: de bedrijfsvoering in de landbouw, poldervorming en waterbeheer, infrastructuur, dijkonderhoud en de aanleg van buitenplaatsen.De boerenbedrijven binnen een kilometer of vijf rond de stad, leverden verse melk. Nabijheid van de markt was noodzakelijk vanwege de bederfelijkheid van onbewerkte melk en deze boeren gingen met paard en wage … [Click Below for Full Description]

Trixum Le Maingre de Boucicault - Les Amazones Révoltées - 1730 - Le Maingre de Boucicault, Louis. Les Amazones Révoltées. Roman moderne en Forme de Parodie sur l'Histoire Universelle, & la Fable. Avec des Notes Politiques sur les Travaux d'Hercule, la Chevalerie-Militaire, et la Découverte du Nouveau-Monde, &c. &c. &c. Rotterdam, ohne Drucker, 1730. Kl.-8°. - 17:9 cm. 3 Blätter, 1 w. Blatt, 274 Seiten, 2 Blätter Errata. Brauner Ganzlederband der Zeit mit reicher Rückenvergoldung u. braunem Rückenschild. Erste Ausgabe, sehr selten. - Das Werk schließt mit der Annahme, dass Hercules die goldenen Äpfel in Amerika entdeckte. Obwohl der Großteil des Werkes eine „pikante Farce" darstellt mit einem exotischen Szenarium von Höflingen, Piraten und einem türkischen Eunuchen, liegt sein großes Interesse an den ausführlichen Anmerkungen über die Figur des Herkules. In der klassischen Fassung der zwölf Aufgaben des Herkules wurde ihm auferlegt, die goldenen Äpfel aus dem Garten der Hesperiden zu holen, der weit in dem Norden Europas liegt. Diese Geschichte wird von Boucicault als Fiction angeprangert: Hercules fand sie während des Besuchs in Amerika. Die angeblich wahre Geschichte spielte sich so ab: Herkules segelte durch die Meerenge von Gibraltar, geriet in einen heftigen Sturm und wurde nach Osten abgetrieben. Dort entdeckte er ein riesiges fruchtbares Land in den unerforschten Meer. Die Griechen hatten angeblich ihre eigenen Gründe für die Verheimlichung dieser Entdeckung.

Bel état sans rousseurs, ni altération. Manuscrits 1730 - 1731, placets, acte, pièces satiriques, chansons, poésie salace (avec style), copies de lettres, factums, 23 documents, 80 pages aux divers formats concernant l'affaire du Père jésuite Jean-Baptiste Girard et de la Demoiselle Catherine Cadière à Toulon. Cet ensemble est exceptionnel par le nombre et la variété des documents. Ces feuillets étaient recopiés et diffusés par les partisans de l'une ou l'autre des parties. Découvert relié dans un ouvrage imprimé du XVIIIe, sans relation avec l'affaire, sa réapparition est inattendue. Parfaitement lisible. Très bel état. Particulièrement rare. "Il est rapidement soupçonné d'entretenir des relations charnelles avec une de ses pénitentes, Catherine Cadière, alors âgée de 19 ans, fort dévote et piquée de sainteté. Il est question d'avortement, de sorcellerie, de convulsions et le fait divers tourne rapidement à la controverse religieuse entre jésuites et jansénistes. Le procès se déroule au Parlement d'Aix-en-Provence en 1731. C'est pendant cette année que le retentissement de l'affaire est le plus important : factums, chansons, gazettes s'en font l'écho de façon complaisante ou polémique. On en parle à la cour et dans toute l'Europe. La tension retombe après le double acquittement prononcé par les magistrats aixois, le 10 octobre 1731, mais l 'affaire ne cesse d'inspirer les auteurs les plus variés -- de Boyer d'Argens, à Michelet "La Sorcière" ".

Unpublished manuscript account of a German nobleman's Grand Tour of Europe, performed in 1695 and 1696. - The journey took the young Silesian baron Johann Heinrich Morawitzky von Rudnitz to Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Brussels, Hamburg, Bremen, Berlin, Dresden, Wolfenbüttel, Marburg an der Lahn, Augsburg, Nuremberg, Milan, Venice, Padua, Parma, Florence, Tivoli, Rome, and Naples. In all, the index cites 48 cities and towns. Morawitzky's descriptions tend to be succinct, focusing on the main attractions, such as architecture, paintings and objets d'art, monasteries, churches, commercial buildings, Wunderkammern, castles, and fortifications. Rome is covered quite extensively (some 72 pages), including a description of a visit to "Roma Subterranea" and the Catacomb of Priscilla. The description of Naples includes an excursion to Mt. Vesuvius (smoking and spewing forth lava), Pozzuoli and the Phlegrean Fields, as well as an early witness account of the notorious dog experiment in the Grotta del Cane near Lago di Agnano (famously also demonstrated to Goethe, Dumas, and Mark Twain). - Pagination irregular, but complete thus.

LE BÉLIER , CONTE M. LE COMTE ANTOINE HAMILTON A Paris, Chez Jean François Josse, 1730, 330 pages + privilège, collationné complet, reliure de l'époque, intérieur en bon état. Très rare édition originale. Description en photos ici: https://photos.app.goo.gl/Z68i77Ge5VQzS5n58 Les contes d'Hamilton furent rédigés entre 1695 et 1715 : ils n'étaient pas destinés à être publiés mais circulèrent en manuscrits à la Cour et dans les milieux lettrés. Agacé par la vogue des contes merveilleux et des Mille et une nuits à la fin du xviie siècle, Hamilton avait entrepris, dit-on, de montrer à son entourage qu'il n'était pas difficile d'en composer ; mais la portée de son œuvre contée dépasse de loin ces circonstances : Hamilton y démontrait un tel art dans l'ironie déconstructrice qu'on le considère comme l'initiateur du conte satirique et libertin du xviiie siècle (Crébillon, Duclos, Diderot). Influencés à la fois par le folklore, les contes orientaux, les contes de fées, le roman baroque et une certaine littérature libertine, audacieux et critiques sur le plan des mœurs et de la religion, inventifs jusqu'à l'extravagance par leurs intrigue, ses contes furent souvent imités (Crébillon, Le Sopha ; Voltaire, La Princesse de Babylone), mais jamais égalés. Les plus fameux sont : Histoire de Fleur d'Épine, Le Bélier, Les Quatre Facardins ; ils ne furent publiés qu'en 1730 par le libraire Jean-François Josse ; le succès fut tel que l'éditeur publia l'année suivante des Œuvres mêlées en prose et en vers, incluant des poésies (dont le conte en vers inachevé : La Pyramide et Le Cheval d'or), de … [Click Below for Full Description]

Map features include; a town plan of Lincoln, together with the heraldic arms of all the Earls of Lincoln since The Norman Conquest and a large set of compass dividers.
