First and only edition, royal folio, wide margin copy, [2], x, ix-xii, 90pp., with the additional title-page, frontispiece, engraved and etched, showing a gardener in apron with a gentleman and a lady viewing a formal garden, with heaped flowers and fruit in the foreground, all within a frame, 21 plates, cont. coloured by hand and mezzotints printed in colour, all after drawings by Jacob van Huysum, 7 mezzotints by Elisha Kirkall and 14 engravings by Henry Fletcher, all of trees and flowering plants, numbered in ink, title in both English and Latin, (plates 1, 2, 3, 9, 11, 14 & 16 mezzotint printed in colours, others engraved and coloured by hand), some occasional light damp-staining to text and plates, a couple closed tears to blank margins, final plate a little damaged with archival paper repairs to chipped blank margins, expertly rebound in blue boards with orig. wrappers laid-down onto covers, housed in a custom-made quarter morocco slip-case, marbled paper sides, spine gilt extra with contrasting red morocco title label lettered in gilt. "The 'Catalogus plantarum' is notable as one of the earliest flower books to contain plates printed in colours.

The seven 'mezzotints' are printed mainly in green and brown, with some small use of a third or fourth colour. Presumably all this was done through dabbing the colours on a single plate; but it should still be noted that Kirkall, the engraver, had previously experimented with woodblocks for laying on the second and third colours..."—Hunt. "An important work as it is one of the first attempts to establish a nomenclature, and so dispel the confusion which arose from plants having several different names. Eighty-eight American trees and shrubs are listed among those which the London nursery-men could supply in 1730. Three volumes were planned for this work but only the first of Trees and Shrubs were completed, it includes the plates which would have illustrated the volumes on Greenhouse Plates and Flowers had they been issued."—Dunthorne.

        Observations curieuses sur toutes les parties de la physique Extraites et

      à Paris: Chez André Cailleau, 1730. Fine. Chez André Cailleau, à Paris 1730, 2 tomes en 2 Vol. Pet. in 8 (9x17cm), relié. - New edition. The first volume of these observations appeared in 1719, the second component later in 1725 In this edition, Volume I is 1730 and the second from 1737 will be noted that it is very rare to find the two volumes together, d even more uniform binding Full Sheepskin contemporary. Back tooled raised. Part of title morocco beige and volume number in red morocco. Caps threadbare. Scuffs on the boards. Despite the shortcomings reported, agreeable copies, well connected. Moving, famous Jesuit scholar is the author of this compilation quii borrows articles to contemporaryicals such as the Journal of the learned, the Republlique letters, and other less known. The result is a more representative view of scientific knowledge. Physical naturally understood in the broad sense, can be found, apart from general physics (acoustics, optics ...) chapters on chemistry, anatomy, plants and natural science, astronomy. The choice of the father Bougeant turns bold and exciting autograph dedication of the authors are quite short and maintain curiosity, going from strange and extraordinary subject to other more conventional, as the causes of the storm. Both volumes have the same thematic division (General Physics, Chemistry, Botany ...) themes together a large number of articles on various subjects. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition. Le premier volume de ces Observations parut en 1719, le second constituant la suite en 1725. Dans cette édition, le volume I est de 1730 et le second de 1737. On remarquera qu'il est fort rare de trouver les deux tomes réunis, d'autant plus en reliure uniforme Reliure en pleine basane d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin beige et de tomaison en maroquin rouge. Coiffes élimées. Epidermures sur les plats. Malgré les défauts annoncés, agréables exemplaires, bien reliés. Bougeant, fameux érudit jésuite est l'artisan de cette compilation quii emprunte des articles aux périodiques comme le Journal des savans, La Republlique des lettres, et autres moins connus. Il en résulte un panorama des plus réprésentatifs de la connaissance scientifique. Physique s'entend naturellement au sens large, on trouvera donc, en dehors de la physique générale (acoustique, optique...) des chapitres sur la chimie, l'anatomie, les plantes et la science naturelle, l'astronomie. Le choix du père Bougeant s'avère audacieux et passionnant, les articles sont assez courts et entretiennent la curiosité, on passe de sujets étranges et extraordinaires à d'autres plus classiques, comme les causes de l'orage. Les deux volumes ont le même découpage thématique (Physique générale, Chimie, Botanique...) ; les thèmes regroupant un grand nombre d'articles sur des sujets très divers.

        A brief state of the inland or home trade, of England; and of the oppressions it suffers, and the dangers which threaten it from invasion of hawkers, pedlars, and clandestine traders of all sorts. Humbly represented to the present Parliament

      London: printed for Tho. Warner, at the Black-Boy in Pater-noster-Row. 1730. 8vo., 70pp., bound in later plain cream boards with a printed paper label on spine. A very good crisp copy. First edition. Moore (Defoe>) 512. Furbank & Owens 249P. Goldsmiths 6764. Kress 3850. Hanson 4074. 'A pamphlet addressed to Parliament, being 'the humble Complaint of the chief Trading Part of the whole Kingdom, against a Sort of People, who ... are ... become an heavy Oppression' (p.[4]). It explains the beneficent operation of the circulation of trade and calls for legal action against the hawkers and pedlars who impede it. The latter, it says, should be made to settle and to open shops like the rest of the trading fraternity. The Political State> for March 1730, p.315, speaks of it as 'a Book which the Shopkeepers published on this Occasion' and says: 'As this Book tho' Printed, has not been publickly Sold, it may not have fallen into many Hands'. [F. & O. p.241]. The attribution to Defoe by Moore and other commentators is not absolutely confirmed by Furbank & Owens. Moore suggests that the essay can be dated between 18 February 1730 and sometime before the middle of April. But whoever the author, the essay paints a vivid portrait of the retail trade in the second quarter of the 18th century. It is a picture of a thriving black-market, of fences, smugglers and a host of 'unregulated' traders selling cheap and poor quality goods at grossly inflated prices. Honest shopkeepers were being cheated left, right and centre.

        Histoire du Comté de Bourgogne : Histoire des sequanois et de la province s EDITION ORIGINALE

      A Besançon: Chez Jean-Baptiste Charmet, 1730. Fine. Chez Jean-Baptiste Charmet, A Besançon 1730 - 1735, In 4 (18x24,5cm), (2) xxvj 298pp. xvj 179pp. (1bc) (22) cxij et (4) xix (1) 635pp. (1bc.) (21), relié. - Rare first edition of the two volumes published respectively in 1730 and 1735 make up the history of the county of Burgundy. A third volume, published in 1740, which is rarely met the first two deals with the nobility and the counts of Burgundy and its political organization. Both volumes are illustrated with 11 plates, including a map of Besançon, a panoramic map brochure of the same city, a folding map of Besançon séquanoises provinces ... The history of the church has a half-title with a new paging. It is possible that there was a false title before the title page entitled History of the County of Burgundy, half-title found on the second volume, but nothing is certain. Binding in full mottled calf time. Back finely and richly decorated nerves, especially iron to the crown of France repeated in each box and the room volume number. Roulette tail leaping horse. Part of title and volume number morocco beige with foliage framing the volume number. Head cover of Volume I partly broken. Small accidents tail of Volume I. partly head cover threadbare in Volume II, fragile tail accidents (lower jaw open tail). A corner wearing a lack of leather trim. The folding board a Roman triumphal arch carries a tear and a former track brown scotch. Despite the many cited defects, copy looks good, the highly decorative back and also costs much. The Séquanois were the ancient people of Franche-Comté, and perhaps part of Switzerland (it was bounded on the north by the Vosges), it was probably a large province, one of the most powerful in Gaul, the Burgundians settled there around the fifth century, a county of Burgundy was born at X century. A chapter is devoted to the history of the Church of Besançon and its main abbeys. The second volume deals with the history of the county of Burgundy, until the advent of the first dukes, and the history of the kingdom of Burgundy (intertwined with the history of the Frankish dynasty). This excellent history of Burgundy is distinguished not only by his erudition but also by the clarity of his style and of its development, it redoubles any previously written history as its starting assumptions are individuals. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale rare de ces deux volumes parus respectivement en 1730 et 1735 composant l'histoire du comté de Bourgogne. Un troisième volume, paru en 1740, et qui se trouve plus rarement réuni aux deux premiers traite de la noblesse et des comtes de Bourgogne ainsi que de son organisation politique. Les deux tomes sont illustrés de 11 planches, comprenant une carte de Besançon, un plan panoramique dépliant de la même ville, une carte dépliante des provinces séquanoises... L'histoire de l'église de Besançon possède un faux-titre, avec une nouvelle pagination. Il est possible qu'il y eut un faux-titre avant la page de titre intitulée Histoire du comté de Bourgogne, faux-titre que l'on trouve sur le second volume, mais rien n'est certain. Reliure en plein veau marbré d'époque. Dos à nerfs finement et richement orné, notamment d'un fer à la couronne de France répété dans chaque caisson et sur la pièce de tomaison. Roulette en queue avec cheval bondissant. Pièce de titre et de tomaison en maroquin beige, avec encadrement de feuillage sur la tomaison. Coiffe de tête du tome I en partie fragile. Petits accidents en queue du tome I. Coiffe de tête en partie élimée au tome II, fragile en queue avec accidents (mors inférieur ouvert en queue). Un coin portant un manque de cuir en bordure. La planche dépliantes d'un arc de triomphe romain porte une déchirure et une trace ancienne brune de scotch. Malgré les nombreux défauts cités, exemplaire de bel aspect, au dos très décoratif et en outre bien frais. Les Séquanois constituaient l'ancien peuple de la Franche-Comté, et peut-être d'une partie de la Suisse (elle était bornée au nord par les Vosges), c'était sans doute une large province, et l'une des plus puissantes de la Gaule, les Bourguignons s'y installèrent vers le cinquième siècle, et un comté de Bourgogne ne vit le jour qu'au Xème siècle. Un chapitre est consacré à l'histoire de l'église de Besançon ainsi qu'à ses principales abbayes. Le second volume traite de l'histoire de ce comté de Bourgogne, jusqu'à l'avènement des premier ducs, et de l'histoire du royaume de Bourgogne (mêlée à l'histoire de la dynastie franque). Cette excellente histoire de la Bourgogne se signale non seulement par son érudition mais aussi par la clarté de son style et de son développement, elle ne redouble aucune histoire préalablement rédigée tant ses postulats de départ sont particuliers.

Triple Net framework on boards. Gilt edges. Caps head tomes II and III threadbare, same tail of Volume I. Lovely copy. Gueulette was a famous storyteller, and rightly so, his works were stored next to the Arabian Nights. Although this writing is the main entertainment purpose, like their model shows that it takes the form: The Thousand and One Nights, the work boasts a didacticism, including Tatars and their manners, evidenced by the notes. Tartary Central Asia was occupied by Turkish-Mongol peoples, there distinguished Chinese Tartary, Russian Tartary, and Independent Tartary. Dr. Abukeler must find a cure for blindness of the king, until his return the doctor's son should tell a story every day for a quarter of an hour the king or be killed. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Bien que cette écriture ait pour objet principal le divertissement, à l'instar de leur illustre modèle dont elle emprunte la forme : Les Mille et une nuits, l'oeuvre se targue d'un certain didactisme, notamment sur les tartares et leurs moeurs, en atteste les notes. La Tartarie était l'Asie centrale, occupée par des peuples turco-mongol, on y distinguait la Tartarie chinoise, la Tartarie russe, et la Tartarie indépendante.

      - Pinsel in Grau über Bleistiftskizze, mit grauer Federlinie umrandet, auf Velin, links unten signiert „MRetzsch". 10,8:8,1 cm. Links oben außerhalb der Darstellung dünne Stelle im Papier. Vorzeichnung für eine Almanach-Illustration. Retzsch war in Dresden vor allem als Zeichner und Radierer, aber auch als Geschichts- und Bildnismaler tätig. Die Dichtungen S. Gessners (1730-1788) und F. de la Motte Fouqués (um 1775-1831) führten Retzsch seit 1806 allmählich vom Klassizismus zur Romantik hinüber, der er sein ganzes Leben treu blieb. Berühmt wurde er mit Zeichnungen zu Werken der Weltliteratur, wie den Dramen Shakespeares, Schillers Gedichten, Bürgers Balladen und vor allem zu Goethes „Faust".

        The Scripture Chronology Demonstrated by Astronomical Calculations: and also by the Year of Jubilee, and the Sabbatical Year among the Jews: or, An Account of Time from the Creation of the World, to the Destruction of Jerusalem. Illustrated with a Great Variety of Tables, Maps, and Copper Plates. By Arthur Bedford, M.A. Rector of Newton St. Loe in the County of Somerset, and Chaplain to the Haberdashers-Hospital at Hoxton near London.

      London: Printed for James and John Knapton etc., 1730. - Folio pp. Title, [2 list of subscribers], vi, [2], 774, [44], [4 index], [17 index and errata], [1 ads.]. Full 18th Century calf, rebacked and recornered with original spine laid on, gilt rule and blindstamping to boards and gilt rules, raised bands and title label to spine. Edges speckled red and plain endpapers. Title in red and black, woodcut head and tail-pieces, 18 (7 folding) plates of maps and plans of Solomon's Temple, and furthe illustations in the text. Some rubbing and wear to binding, internally very clean and fresh, with a good impression of the plates. Robert Raymond, 1st Baron Raymond's (1673–1733) copy, with his name and date of aquisition in ink to first blank. Small closed tear towards the middle of the last folding plate, within the image, but not particularly visible. Bedford wrote his chronology as an improved version (using more recently discovered astronomical findings) of Bishop Usher's famous work and also as a refutation of Isaac Newton's Chronology of Ancient Kingdoms; a very similar work which also deals in detail with Solomon's Temple, estimates and plans of which Bedford disagreed with. A fine example of Eighteenth Century printing and engraving. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Descripcion de las Indias Occidentales... [with] Historia General de los hechos de los Castellanos en las Islas i Tierra Firma del Mar Oceano [Decades 1-8]

      Madrid: Imprenta Real, 1730. Nine parts bound together in four volumes, folio, with engraved title-pages (incorporating portraits of missionaries, generals, governors, and soldiers, views of America, etc); with fourteen engraved maps; eighteenth-century mottled calf, a bit rubbed and joints cracking but firm, some neat restorations; crowned monogram "N" in compartments of spines; stored in two fitted quarter calf boxes. A most attractive set of the second and best edition of Herrera's Decades. This massive work, one of the primary accounts of the early Spanish conquest of the New World, was originally published in Madrid between 1601 and 1615 in eight "decades" spanning the years 1492 to 1554. Only the first three were ever translated, although the work as a whole was "of the greatest importance for the history of the conquests, colonization and progress of the Spaniards in America..." (Hill).The Descripcion that accompanies the Decades is also of great significance: it first appeared in 1622, in several languages, and contained the first true publication of the journal of the Le Maire-Schouten expedition around the world (see Schilder, pp. 34-6). Sailing through Lemaire Strait, and rounding Patagonia via Cape Horn, this voyage had an enormous effect on future navigation, helping to put an end to the idea of the imaginary Southland. The series of fourteen maps that accompany the Descripcion includes one of the Pacific with the Straits of Magellan clearly mapped and another of the East Indies with good details of the Solomon Islands and of the north coast of New Guinea in both.This excellent set has on its spines repeated crowned "N" monograms - which we have not been able to identify. This copy was once confidently described as having come from Napoleon's library, but the monograms certainly date from the time of binding, and the binding is simply too early. Ollivier does not record any other suitable candidates among the French book-collecting aristocracy. A number of leaves in this set are bound out of order (not surprisingly given the complexity of the book's make-up) but all are present. A full collation is available on request.

Provenienz: Süddeutsche Privatsammlung. Der Landschaftsmaler, Radierer und Kunstsammler Lorenz Janscha war Schüler der Wiener Akademie unter F.E. Weirotter (1730-1771) und J.C. Brand (1722-1795). Er erhielt einen 2. und zwei 1. Preise und wurde 1790 unter die Pensionäre der Anstalt aufgenommen. 1801 wurde er neben F.A. Brand (1735-1806) Korrektor für Zeichnung an der Akademie, trat 1806 an dessen Stelle als Lehrer für Landschaftszeichnung und wurde als solcher mit dem Titel Kaiserlicher Rat ausgezeichnet. Das Hauptfach Janschas war die landschaftliche Vedute in Aquarell. Auf diesem Gebiet hat er eine fruchtbare Tätigkeit entfaltet. Besonders bekannt wurde er durch die graphischen Folgen mit Wiener Ansichten, Rhein- und Donaulandschaften, die er mit anderen Künstlern zusammen herausgab.

        Manuscript in English, on paper: Cookery recipes

      [England 4to (20.3 cm, 8"). [43] ff. (15 ff. used, on 25 pp.).. ca. 1730 through 1875] Early 18th- through 19th-century cookery manuscript focusing primarily on desserts. At least four hands contributed, with three clearly distinct writers being responsible for the opening section of sweet and savory puddings. The first writer starts out with "oringe pudding" before giving several variants each of calves-foot, oatmeal, and boiled or baked puddings, along with one "shakin" and one "quaking" pudding. The second adds the ever-popular Portugal cakes along with orange and carob puddings, while the third digresses into pound cake, "a nice plum cake," and cheese straws before closing with fig pudding — all taken from Mrs. Beeton's famed cookbook. After the dessert section, the original writer returns to add a few more miscellaneous recipes and, after an intermission of blank leaves, some marmalades and jellies. Four additional items are present towards the back of the volume, the contributors having turned the volume upside-down to inscribe them: pastilles for burning, Madeira wine, cider attributed to "Mr. Phillips" (possibly Henry Phillips, author of a historical account of fruits known in Great Britain), and instructions for fining stale beer. Although a number of leaves here are blank, the content is substantial, legible, and interesting. No dates are present in the text itself, but the paper bears a Dutch watermark related to Churchill 109?-119, and was produced in the Seven Provinces ca. 1675?-1700, while the recipes attributed to Beeton must date after 1861. Some of the handwriting and spelling is consistent with a date of 1730. Contemporary vellum, rebacked, corners rubbed/bumped, front cover with now-illegible traces of inked ownership inscription, covers with spots of discoloration; hinges (inside) reinforced. First leaf excised (first recipe present numbered 2, though correction is quickly achieved by means of there being two 9s {and numbering soon breaks down entirely}). Soiling (mostly at or in from edges) and moderate foxing/spotting, throughout.

A very good crisp copy. First edition: apparently rare. [ESTC, OCLC & COPAC locate copies at 5 libraries in B.Isles but only 4 elsewhere: viz. Yale (Beinecke) + Un. of Illinois + Thuringen Un. Bibl. + Sachische Lands. Bibl.]. Samuel Shaw (1666-1730) was the schoolmaster at Tamworth in Staffordshire. * This leaf appears not to be present in any of the recorded copies. It has an additional note to be added 'at the end of Sect. 20 (page 29.) after hampados' and comprises perhaps 1½ pages of supplementary text.
