Etwas späterer Pappband mit handschriftlichem Rückentitel u. montiertem Bibliothekssignaturschild (Rücken verblaßt). Exemplar aus dem Besitz von Joseph v. Laßberg mit dem eigenhändigen Besitzvermerk "Villa Epponis (d.i. Eppishausen) ad Bibliothecarum J. Laszbergii". - Letzte "zeitgenössische" Ausgabe des Rollenhagen'schen "Froschmäuselers", die sich in ihrer äußeren Gestaltung an die Erstausgabe anlehnt und seit der Ausgabe von 1637 erstmals "wieder mit Holzschnitten illustriert" (Dünnhaupt) wurde, die meistens denen der Erstausgabe nachgeschnitten sind.

        Histoire de l'ancienne Grèce.

      S.l., s.d., (vers 1730), - in-4, 673 pp., couvertes d'une écriture fine et lisible, bien espacée (environ 20 lignes par page), nombreuses biffures et corrections, d'une autre encre, avec 5 tableaux généalogiques dans le texte, et 4 pp. de table chronologique générale, veau blond, dos à nerfs cloisonné et fleuronné, pièce de titre fauve, encadrement de simple filet doré sur les plats, rmes au centre, double filet doré sur les coupes, tranches rouges (reliure de l'époque). Taches sur les plats. Restaurations aux coins, coiffes et charnières. L'ouvrage forme une copie de huit des Discours historiques que l'on trouve dans le tome V du Supplément de la méthode pour étudier l'histoire de Lenglet Du Fresnoy (Paris, Rollin, de Bure, 1739-1740), venant en complément des quatre volumes de la Méthode pour étudier l'histoire. Nous avons en effet successivement : 1. Détail de l'ancienne histoire grecque (dixième discours) : pp. 1-42. 2. Histoire d'Argos (onzième discours) : pp. 45-91. 3. Histoire d'Athènes (douzième discours) : pp. 95-268. 4. Histoire de Thèbes (treizième discours) : pp. 271-357. 5. Histoire de quelques autres royaumes de la Grèce, & en particulier de Troye (quatorzième discours, qui comprend aussi Lacédémone et Arcadie) : pp. 359-438. 6. Histoire de l'ancienne Italie (quinzième discours) : pp. 443-530. 7. Histoire ancienne de la Sicile (seizième discours) : pp. 531-566. 8.

Il faut noter que le texte de notre manuscrit diffère parfois de façon notable de l'imprimé, non sur le fond, mais dans l'expression. Les abondantes biffures et corrections que l'on rencontre dans certaines parties suggèrent que le mansucrit a été celui de l'historien lui-même (1674-1755). Cioranescu, XVIII, 39 209 (pour l'imprimé). Précieux exemplaire aux armes de Samuel Bernard (1651-1739), le célèbre financier de Louis XIV et Louis XV. O.H.R., 1042-1.

        Twelve months of flowers.

      London -32 1730 - Large folio (58.7 x 46 cm), hand-coloured engraved list of subscribers within a floral border serving as title-page, 12 hand-coloured plates designed by Pieter Casteels and engraved by H. Fletcher showing flower arrangements, interleaved with blanks; subscribers' list slightly dust-soiled and strengthened at margin on verso, "January" plate slightly stained, a few small unobtrusive marginal repairs to interleaved blank leaves, some light spotting predominantly marginal, occasional marginal pencil marks and the small letters "S-M" written in ink in one margin, around 2 cm square area of final plate rubbed away. 19th century half calf with marbled sides, covers slightly rubbed, neatly rebacked and corners neatly repaired. The most magnificent of nurserymen's catalogues. In the early eighteenth century, the most important trade association for the purchase, sale, and exchange of plants and seeds was the Society of Gardeners. Its members would bring specimens to monthly meetings at a coffee-house in Chelsea for discussion and to standardise plant names. For reference purposes a selection of the plants might be drawn. This, combined with the wishes of clients to have notes on cultivation, led to the evolution of illustrated catalogues, often handsomely produced. Of all the publications produced by members of the Society of Gardeners, that of Robert Furber (circa 1674-1756) displayed the most originality. His nursery, in Kensington Road near Hyde Park, was extremely successful, and having already published a couple of modest lists, he produced the present, extravagant catalogue illustrated in the grand manner. Rather than producing a conventional brochure, Furber engaged the Flemish artist, Pieter Casteels (1684-1749), resident in London and well-known for his still-life compositions, to execute 12 portrayals of flowers bunched in ornamental vases and urns, one for each month of the year. Each presented a baroque bouquet of more than thirty different flowers, all obtainable from the Furber nursery. Casteels completed his commission by September 1731, upon which subscribers were reminded to send the balance of their subscription. A thirteenth plate with the subscribers' names within a floral border was produced in March 1732 dedicated to Frederick, Prince of Wales, the Princess Royal, and the 435 subscribers. Sets of the plates were made available to non-subscribers at one pound five shillings plain, or two pounds twelve shillings and six pence coloured. A number against every flower, identified in a key at the bottom of the plate, was used by customers when ordering. Furber's catalogue was produced to appeal to florists, and, reflecting the taste of the day, there are 26 varieties of auricula, and nineteen of the anenome. Hyacinth, tulip, and ranunculas are also well represented. The catalogue was a huge success, and the images were used as the basis for later engravings by print makers such as Robert Sayer and John Overton, as well being used in embroidery and other decorative arts.

        Italian decorated Ketubah.

      Massa and Carrara Italy 1730 - Ink and gouache on vellum, (76.5 x 53.5 cm). Framed and glazed. An attractive example of a traditional Jewish marriage contract, fully manuscript and elegantly decorated with fine colours and liquid gold. The present wedding was celebrated on Wednesday the 12th of the month of Av, year 5490 of the Jewish calendar (1730), in the province of Massa and Carrara, Italy, between Gabriele son of David Vitali and Grazia, daughter of Isaac Piza. The Province of Massa and Carrara [or Massa-Carrara] is in the Italian region of Tuscany. It is named after the two main towns in its territory: Carrara and the capital, Massa; there is evidence that Jews have lived in Tuscany since the Early Middle Ages. Although Florence and Pisa had the largest Jewish populations, many of the smaller towns were also home to significant Jewish communities. The province of Massa- Carrara is located not far from the city of Livorno, which saw an influx of Jewish settlers at the turn of the sixteenth century because of the "Livornina Law", which granted them freedom of worship. The Ketubah is a nuptial agreement signed by the groom and presented to the bride as part of the traditional Jewish wedding ceremony. It formalises the duties and responsibilities of the groom towards the bride, including some basic obligations such as sustenance (food and clothing), marital relations and compensation in the event of divorce. The Ketubah is read aloud during the wedding ceremony, signed by two witnesses and usually handed to the mother of the bride for safekeeping. Ketubot are often hung in the home of the couple, as a reminder of their vows and mutual marital responsibilities. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      London: [none given], 1730. First Edition thus. Full Calf. Fine-. Thomson's masterpiece, and perhaps the most popular English-language poem in blank verse (running to some 5500 lines in its final form) from Milton to the Romantics, as well as "one of the earliest, longest, and finest nature poems in the English language." (Literary Encyclopedia) Large 4to: [8],250,[4, half title and Argument for Spring, final page of subscribers list, and errata misbound],251-252,16,8pp, with title page in red and black with engraved vignette, five full-page allegorical plates by William Kent (one for each season and one for the valedictory to Newton),and head- and tail-pieces and historiated initials by Samuel Richardson. Contemporary full speckled English calf, flat spine in seven compartments divided by gilt rolls, red morocco lettering piece gilt, board edges gilt-tooled, armorial engraved bookplate of James Grove Wood, Castle Grove, on front paste down. Wood (1803-1891) lived at Castle Grove, Letterkenny, County Donegal, Ireland. An excellent wide-margined copy; joints, caps and corners very skillfully restored; pages generally clean and bright (final four leaves lightly toned; unobtrusive marginal worm track, far from text, through Spring). Foxon T237. Rothschild 2423 for first collected edition). Lowndes 2671. ESTC Citation No. T141597. Three quarto editions (ESTC Nos. T153055, T141596, and T141597) were published in London in 1730; ours is the most complete. It is a reissue of the First Collected Edition (which includes the first appearance of both "Autumn" and "A Poem Sacred to the Memory of Sir Isaac Newton"), with the addition of "Britannia" (2nd. ed. corrected) and "A paraphrase on the latter part of the sixth chapter of St. Matthew," both with separate pagination and register ("Britannia" also has a separate title page). Not to be confused with any of the three smaller, non-subscription octavo editions , also published in 1730. Thomson treats each season in succession, describing changes in the weather and landscape of the Scottish border country (where he was born) and its inhabitants, human and otherwise, occasionally ranging as far afield as Africa, Surinam, the Arctic, Lapland, and Russia. Each poem devotes particular attention to rivers, rural pastimes and industries, as well as to assorted insects, birds, and beasts. "Winter" was first published in a brief version, in 1726. By 1727, Thomson was composing "Summer," followed by "Spring" (1728), and finally "Autumn," in 1730, the year all four appeared together in this collected edition. According to Lowndes, "about 360 copies were subscribed for at £1.1s." The list of subscribers includes many members of the landed gentry as well as the poets Alexander Pope (3 copies) and Richard Savage, the Scottish artist Alan Ramsay, and the antiquarian Horace Walpole.

He summarized all his otological knowledge in the Traité de l'organe de Tome (Treatise on the Organ of Hearing) published in 1683. He wanted to publish a new enlarged edition, in particular adding new "curious observations" presented at the Royal Academy of Sciences in 1705." "Unfortunately, he was not able to finish this work. A second edition was published a few months after his death, but without any new details, and corresponding exactly to the 1683 edition. Reprinted many times and translated in particular into Latin, German and English, this treatise surpassed all expectations and became the reference for studying otology for many decades. "It is in publishing the work on the structure of the ear that Mr Duvemey laid down the foundations of the high reputation which he has enjoyed and always will enjoy amongst anatomists very different from those who are wont to find glory in proposing new explanations on parts which they do not know, Mr Duverney made it a rule to study the internal structure of organs and to describe them with the greatest precision before dealing with their uses and indicating their diseases. One must know the healthy state in order to make fruitful study of the diseased state. Guided by the spirit of method and illuminated by the most brilliant and solid genius Duverney collected into a small volume the most interesting truths." Duverney's treatise was a comparatively short work, but full of relevant data divided into three parts: anatomy, physiology, pathology and therapy." "The otological investigations of the following centuries attest to the impact Duverney's treatise had on the development of otology. Itard wrote in 1821 that "the works of J. G. Duverney occupy in the history of medicine a place no less honorable than that of Fallopio's research." In his history of otology published in 1833, Dann situated Duverney's treatise as a landmark between the second and third period in the history of otology." Albert Mudry, History of Otology (2015), pp.157-167Johann Friedrich Cassebohm (1699-1743) "Born in Halle, Cassebohm studied medicine in his native town, in Frankfurt and Paris, in particular under the supervision of Winslow. He occupied the chair of anatomy first at the University of Halle, then Frankfurt, and finally Berlin. Although he deserved credit for advancing the study of anatomy in general, it was his anatomical work on the organ of hearing that made him famous. The results of his research on the embryonic organ of hearing far surpassed those of his predecessors, including Valsalva and Morgagni. Until the time of Huschke and von Baer, Cassebohm's description of the development of the ear was unsurpassed. After the publication of his inaugural dissertation De aure interna (On the Internal Ear) in 1730, the complete results of his research on the ear were published in six treatises, the first four Tractatus quatuor anatomici de aure humana (Four anatomical treatises on the human ear), in 1734, were completed by, and bound with, the last two published in 1735, Tractatus quintus anatomicus de aure humana, cui accedit tractatus sextus anatomicus de aure monstri humani (Fifth anatomical treatise on the human ear, to which is added the sixth anatomical treatise on the ear of human monsters).' Cassebohm's treatises on the human ear included drawings by his student and anatomical preparator Dominus Johannes Zaccharias Petsche (?), which were the best of their time, surpassed only by those of Scarpa. They contained an abundance of new and amended information, much of which concerned the internal ear. The clarity of description and the compactness of expression were unequalled in Cassebohm's time. His work was unusually important to the entire field of otology, and ensured he would always have the rank of an outstanding researcher. This was proved by the critical Morgagni quoting his outstanding contemporary preferentially, and almost always in the highest terms. The content of Cassebohm's treatises followed the program outlined in the introduction: "I preferred, with all possible brevity and clarity, to record my observations in a small book, rather than to collate in one large volume, the work of others." The first treatise dealt with the temporal bone, the second with the external ear, the third with the tympanic cavity, called the "first cavity of the internal ear", and the fourth with the content of this tympanic cavity. The fifth treatise dealt with the labyrinth, and the sixth described a six-month-old fetus, a double monster, in which two organs of hearing were combined in one. The malformation primarily involved the tympanic cavity, which contained seven ossicles, all of which were in part grossly deformed. The labyrinth was within the normal limits of location, size, and shape. In his posthumous book on dissection, Cassebohm devoted a chapter to the preparation of the ear."

        Opera Omnia, Quatuor Voluminibus

      Hardback. Very Good. R Gosling and others, Fleet Street, London, 1730, first thus; four volumes, folio, engraved frontispiece to each volume, pp [iii], [ii], [iv], [3] to 224, [viii, being the index to Book I], 394, [xxxviii, being the index to Book II]; [iv], 564, [iv, being folding tables of creditors], [xxviii, being the volume index]; [vi], 586, [xlvi, being the volume index]; [i], 707, [xxviii, being the volume index], [i, bookseller's catalogue]. Full contemporary calf gilt, labels gilt; some wear to the bindings, generally light, but including cracking of some hinges (cosmetic only, not affecting the binding overall which remains firm and tight); lacks the spine label to vol III and with that to v ol I slightly defaced; very light occasional browning but otherwise an exceptionally crisp and clean copy, firmly bound. Each volume has the armorial bookplates of Charles Bathurst of Lydney Park (MP and government minister in various roles from 1790 to 1823). Francis Bacon, Viscount St Alban, 1561-1626, served as both Lord Chancellor and Attorney General under James VI/I between 1613 and 1621. His range of interests and writings was extremely wide and his analytical and sceptical approach and his insistence on careful observation led to his being called by Voltaire the father of the scientific method. His prodigious literary output divides broadly into three categories - scientific, religious and philosophical, and juridical. NOTE: these four volumes together weigh a little over 10kg and so may require additional charges for carriage, subject to ultimate destination and mode of transport.

Hij draagt het op aan Andries en Gerrit Schoemaker. In de voorrede deelt hij mee dat het plan hiervoor enkele jaren geleden was ontstaan en dat hij en Andries Schoemaker het zouden samenstellen. Bruin heeft het uiteindelijk `voltooid' en heeft er geen doorlopend gedicht van gemaakt - zoals het Zuid-Hollandse deel - maar een `samenspreeking' tussen vier `godvruchtige persoonen'.

        Paradys verlooren. Heldendicht in tien boeken. Vertaald uit het Engels. Haarlem, Geertruyd van Kessel, 1728.

      "4º: * 4 A-3N 4, gepag.:[8] 472 pp. Titelpagina in zwart en rood gedrukt. Contemp. half perkament, rug boven- en onderaan beschadigd. Scherpbier, Milton in Holland. A study in the literary relations of England and Holland before 1730 (Amsterdam 1933); Smit (Kalliope) I, p.108, II, p.261-279; Moderne encyclopedie der wereldliteratuur (Hilversum 1967) V, p.484 - 490"."De eerste Nederlandse vertaling van Miltons beroemde epos 'Paradise Lost', dat gaat over de zondeval van de eerste mensen (eerste druk 1667, tweede herziene uitgave 1674). Spectatorschrijver Addison meende dat dit epos de 'Ilias' van Homerus en de 'Aeneis' van Vergilius naar de kroon stak. W.A.P. Smit noemt het werk het absolute hoogtepunt van het Renaissancistisch-klassisistische epos, niet alleen in Engeland, maar in geheel West-Europa. Van Zanten (Leiden 1658 - Haarlem 1750) was arts en later tevens doopsgezind leraar in Haarlem. Behalve deze Milton-vertaling (in rijmloze verzen net als het origineel, wat volgens Scherpbier een bijzondere prestatie was voor een dilettant, en een groot waagstuk tevens, in een land waar een gedicht pas een gedicht was als het rijmde) heeft hij praktisch geen poëzie gepubliceerd. Wel is een aantal gedichten en vertalingen uit het , 523, , Latijn, Engels en Italiaans in handschrift bewaard gebleven, evenals het manuscript van 'Paradys verlooren'. Het dichtwerk is opgedragen aan de Haarlemse regent Willem Six (Haarlem 1692 - Florence 1757). Voor elk van de tien boeken staat een korte, wél berijmde inhoudsopgave van Van Zantens plaatsgenoot, de dichter Pieter Langendijk. Was Langendijk degene, op wiens aansporing Van Zanten enkele jaren nadat hij zijn vertaalarbeid had voltooid tot publicatie was overgegaan, Willem Six had hem, zo blijkt uit de opdracht, voortdurend aangemoedigd om de vertaling te voltooien. Enkele jaren later moest Six het land uit vluchten wegens het grote sodomieschandaal van 1731. Vandaar ook zijn overlijden in Florence."

        A New and Correct Map of the World, Laid Down According to the Newest Discoveries, and From the Most Exact Observations

      London: H. Moll, D. Midwinter, T. Bowles, P. Overton, 1730. Copper-engraved map, on four joined sheets, with original outline colour. Marginal foxing, re-margined left and right margins, reinforced center fold, repaired tear bottom margin, toning at center fold. A magnificent and monumental World map, showing the globe in the early days of the Age of Enlightenment and European ImperialismThis fascinating global perspective, featured in double-hemispheres, depicts the latest state of knowledge of the world in the first quarter of the eighteenth-century. The delineation of Europe, South America, and southern Asia is quite sophisticated, while the depiction of regions further beyond suggests only fleeting exploration or outright speculation. Most of the Arctic is labelled "Parts Unknown," and the American West is largely conjectural, featuring California as an island, the most beloved of cartographic misconceptions. Lands depicted to the east of the Spice Islands are scarcely contemplated, "Iesso," or Hokkaido, is shown to be part of Siberia, and eastern Australia is left as a complete enigma, decades before the voyages of James Cook. This map was intended to satiate the intense English interest in maritime exploration and commerce. The oceans within the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn feature highly detailed hydrological information, most notably the direction of the ocean currents, that Moll gleaned from his esteemed contemporary Sir Edmond Halley. Evincing the scientific curiosity of the Enlightenment, each corner of the map features very detailed and elegant astronomical diagrams, including; the planetary systems according to both Ptolemy (geo-centric) and Copernicus (helio-centric) (with the addition of the path of a comet), the appearance of the Sun according to the Jesuit intellectual Athanasius Kircher; and the Appearance of the Moon according to Jean-Dominique Cassini. The five known planets are depicted as well, Saturn with its ring and Jupiter with four moons. The magnificent title cartouche, dedicated to George I, features classical sea gods, prefiguring the power of the Royal Navy that would allow the British to build a global empire later in the century.The present map was part of Herman Moll's magnificent folio work, a New and Compleat Atlas. Moll was the most important cartographer working in London during his era, a career that spanned over fifty years. His origins have been a source of great scholarly debate; however, the prevailing opinion suggests that he hailed from the Hanseatic port city of Bremen, Germany. Joining a number of his countrymen, he fled the turmoil of the Scanian Wars for London, and in 1678 is first recorded as working there as an engraver for Moses Pitt on the production of the English Atlas. It was not long before Moll found himself as a charter member of London's most interesting social circle, which congregated at Jonathan's Coffee House at Number 20 Exchange Alley, Cornhill. It was at this establishment that speculators met to trade equities (most notoriously South Sea Company shares). Moll's coffeehouse circle included the scientist Robert Hooke, the archaeologist William Stuckley, the authors Jonathan Swift and Daniel Defoe, and the intellectually-gifted pirates William Dampier, Woodes Rogers and William Hacke. From these friends, Moll gained a great deal of privileged information that was later conveyed in his cartographic works, some appearing in the works of these same figures. Moll was highly astute, both politically and commercially, and he was consistently able to craft maps and atlases that appealed to the particular fancy of wealthy individual patrons, as well as the popular trends of the day. In many cases, his works are amongst the very finest maps of their subjects ever created with toponymy in the English language.Shirley, Maps in the Atlases of the British Library I , T.Moll-4b, 2; Cf.
