        The seasons. By Mr. Thomson [Subscribers Edition]

      London: [none given], Printed in the Year M.DCC.XXX [1730]. 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.

        London.

      Georg. Balthasar Probst Augsburg c. 1730 - Hand-coloured engraved birds' eye view on two sheets, joined, key in German and English, one or two very small rust holes, otherwise very good. Dimensions: 390 × 1125 mm (15.75 × 44.25 inches). A beautiful large, coloured panorama of 'post fire' London by Friedrich Bernhard Werner, a German printmaker and a skilled draftsman - who specialized in panoramic views of towns in Europe in this format. From left to right, it graphically depicts all the major houses, buildings and churches from Somerset House to the Tower of London, with St.Paul's Cathedral dominating the skyline. London Bridge is seen resplendent with houses along its entire length (the houses were finally cleared in 1756). A key below the panorama is in English, German and Latin, and lists 70 of the most important sites and buildings and landmarks - including some 40 churches. The Thames is extremelly busy with numerous sailing and maritime craft. Above the map is the title on a ribbon banner, flanked by the Royal Arms, and those of The City. During his working lifetime, Werner worked for a number of well known German publishers - including Probst family. The city of Augsburg was a major European publishing centre during 17th and 18th centuries.

        Imperatorum Romanorum numismata a Pompejo Magno ad Heraclium ab Adolfo Occone olim congesta; Augustorum iconibus, perpetuis historico-chronologicis notis, pluribusque additamentis jam illustrata a Francisco Mediobarbo Birargo; nunc vero ab innumeris.

      ex aedibus Societatis Palatinae, Mediolani 1730 - [26], 624 p., Latin text, 1 leaf of plates, frontispiece and engraved dedication, title printed in red and black with a fine medallion engraving; superbly engraved oval portrait plate of Mediobarbi; woodcut initials; 235 very fine engravings of Roman portrait coins in the text, opening leaves a bit tattered; barring occasional spotting, bulk of text is rather near fine, cover repaired with later vellum spine & new endpapers. This 1730 issue, expanded by Filippo Argelati, is the best edition of Occo’s landmark work. Adolph Occo (1524–1606), was a German doctor and humanist from Augsburg whose work in the field of Roman numismatics is acknowledged as a major factor in the early development of numismatics as a science. Imperatorum romanorum numismata is particularly important as it abandons the grouping of Roman coins by metal and adopts, instead, a chronological classification. Cunnally observes that Occo’s Numismata served as a model for the great nineteenth-century catalogues of Roman imperial coins written by Theodore-Edme Mionnet and Henry Cohen, "a lineage that culminates in the Roman Imperial Coinage begun by Mattingly and Sydenham in 1923." While paying tribute to his numismatic prowess, Babelon observes that "the eccentric doctor Adolphus Occo of Augsburg (1524-1606)" was an advocate of the use of rhubarb, who declared that his conscience would not permit him to accept the change to the Gregorian calendar." Babelon 78-79. Bassoli 17 & 63. Brunet 29825: "Bonne édition." Hennin 186. Lipsius 253 & 292. Renauldin 64-71. Strandberg 118. Size: Folio [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Rollenhagens 1595 erschienenes didaktisches Tierepos zählt zu den "besten Moralsatiren des 16. Jahrhunderts" (KLL). Einbezogen in das Lehrgedicht sind diverse Tierfabeln von Aesop u.a., der Reineke Fuchs etc. Dank seiner volkstümlichen, fast märchenhaften Erzählweise hat es sich "bis in die Goethezeit hinein" größter Beliebtheit erfreut. Die Vorrede des Herausgebers (vermutlich Johann Leonhard Frisch) an den Leser nennt in dieser Ausgabe irrtümlich Gabriel Rollenhagen, Georgs Sohn, als Verfasser. - Goed.

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]

        The seasons. By Mr. Thomson [Subscribers Edition]

      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.

Friderico Cassebohm ... Halæ Magdeburgicæ Sumtibus Orphanotrophei, 1735.Guichard Joseph Duverney (1648-1730) "writings stand out because of their compactness, their wealth of content, their exemplary accuracy, and their precision of judgement. Investigation of the organ of hearing was one of his favorite fields of research. On his scientific journeys he thoroughly researched the hearing organ of fish. 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."

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.

        Mappa geographica regionem Mexicanam et Floridam terrasque adjecentes

      Incisione in rame, coloritura originale d'epoca, mm 500x595; in basso a sinistra bella scena di genere; in alto a destra quattro riquadri raffiguranti Porto Bello, Cuba, Carthagena e Vera Cruz. Tratta da Atlas Maior. Seutter, dopo un apprendistato presso Homann a Norimberga, trasferitosi ad Augsburg verso il 1720, aprì la propria attività superando il maestro sotto il profilo della bellezza: le sue carte hanno sempre colori brillanti e cartigli elaborati. Buon esemplare con leggere tracce di sporco superficiale, un alone al centro in basso, piccoli difetti e qualche strappo restaurato marginale. Copperplate, original colour, mm 500x595. Enriched by four little inset maps of Porto Bello, Cuba, Carthagena e Vera Cruz and a sea battle. From Seutter's Atlas Maior printed in about 1730. Seutter, one of the most celebrated eighteenth century German mapmakers, after having worked with Homann in Nuremberg, started his own business in Augsburg around 1710. His maps always have elaborate cartouches and are very decorative and printed on good paper.
