Homann of Virginia, Carolina, Maryland and New Jersey, covering the coastline from Long Island in the north to just south of Cape Feare in Carolina with the large fictitious 'Apalache Lacus' in Florida, Maped in ca. 1730.

The map shows New Yersey devide into East and West New Jersey.The Atlantic is shown as Mare Virgini or Sea of Virginy.

Engraving / etching with contemporary hand colouring on hand laid (verge) paper. Made by 'Homann Heirs' after an anonymous artist. Made by an anonymous engraver after 'Homann Heirs'. Following the long period of Dutch domination, the Homann family became the most important map publishers in Germany in the eighteenth century, the business being founded by J.B. Homann in Nuremberg about the year 1702. Soon after publishing his first atlas in 1707 he became a member of the Berlin academy of Sciences and in 1715 he was appointed Geographer to the Emperor. After the founder's death in 1724, the firm was continued under the direction of his son until 1730 and was then bequeathed to his heirs on the condition that it trades under the name of Homann Heirs. The firm remained in being until the next century and had a wide influence on map publishing in Germany. Apart from the atlases the firm published a very large number of individual maps. The Homanns produced a Neuer Atlas in 1714, a Grosser Atlas in 1737, and an Atlas Maior with about 300 maps in 1780. They also issued a special Atlas of Germany with full sized plans of principal cities, school atlases and an Atlas of Silesia in 1750 with 20 maps. Condition: Good, given age. Edges with several small tears, not affecting image. Some staining and light soiling in the margins. Some minor crinkles and creases. A few small spots. Original middle fold as issued.

        The Hibernian Patriot: Being a Collection of the Drapier's Letters to the People of Ireland, Concerning Mr. Wood's Brass Half-Pence

      [London] Printed at Dublin. London Reprinted: A. Moor [i.e. William Bowyer], 1730. First London edition. [viii], 264 pp. 8vo. Contemporary Cambridge calf. Lacking spine label, rubbed, front cover detached, rear joint cracked. First London edition. [viii], 264 pp. 8vo. First London Edition of the Drapier Letters. The first London edition of Swift's pseudonymous letters, first issued separately in 1724, then collected first by the Dublin edition of 1725 under the title Fraud Detected. In 1722, the English Parliament granted to one William Wood, mine-owner and iron-monger, the right to coin the extravagant sum of £100,000 in copper half-pence. Swift was outraged at what he perceived not only as a swindle to advance the interests of a particular moneyed class, but also as one more example of the monstrous tyranny exercised by England over the Irish. In the persona of a humble shopkeeper, Swift attacked the proposal on several sound economic grounds and pushed his conclusions to their logical and absurd consequences. Having calculated the real (as opposed to the nominal) value of Wood's half-pence, and taking it for granted that bad money drives out good, Swift concludes hilariously that a lady going out shopping will need to be "followed by a Car loaded with Mr. Wood's money," and that a banker will need twelve hundred horse to carry the cash he needs in his bank. But there is also a thunderously Swiftian appeal to freedom: "Were not the people of Ireland born as free as those of England? How have they foreited their Freedom? Is not their Parliament as fair a Representative of the People, as that of England? And hath not their Privy Council as great or a greater share in the Administration of publick Affairs? Are they not subjects of the same King? Does not the same Sun shine over them? And have they not the same God for their Protector? Am I a Free-Man in England, and do I become a Slave in six hours by crossing the Channel?" Swift's "Drapier" urges a boycott of Wood's coins upon his countrymen: "If a Madman should come to my Shop with a Handful of Dirt raked out of the Kennel, and offer it in payment for Ten Yards of Stuff, I would Pity or Laugh at him, or, if his Behaviour deserved it, kick him out of my Doors. And if Mr. Wood comes to demand any Gold or Silver, or Commodities for which I have payed my Gold and Silver, in Exchange for his Trash, can he deserve or expect better treatment?" Swift's publication fanned the flames of controversy both in Ireland and England; and his victory was complete when by the end of August 1725, Wood's grant was withdrawn. "Precisely to what extent Swift had been instrumental in bringing it about can never be assessed. It is certain that he had many able helpers, as it is clear that the populace gave him pre-eminence, so that for the rest of his life he was the people's idol..."

        Nützliche und auserlerlesene Medicinische und Chirurgische Anmerckungen, ... innerlichen als auch äusserlichen verrichteten Operationen, welche bishero in den Lazareth der Charité zu Berlin vorgefallen .....

      Berlin, verlegts Johann Andreas Rüdinger, Buchhändler, 1730, (16), 255 pp., mit 2 großen Kupferstiche auf einer gefalt. Tafel, Ledereinband der Zeit mit Rückenvergoldung ExLibris feines Exemplar. Erster Druck der ersten Ausgabe (noch ohne die 8 Bl. des später hinzugefügten Index). - Provenienzexemplar mit gestochenem Exlibris der Schwedischen Akademie der Wissenschaften und Duplikatschild der medizinhistorischen Hagströmer-Bibliothek, Karolinska Institutet).Hauptwerk des ersten Direktors der 1727 gegründeten Charité. Enthält die früheste Beschreibung der berühmtesten Berliner Klinik und eine medizinhistorisch interessante Kasuistik der in den Anfangsjahren beobachteten und chirurgisch behandelten wichtigsten Fälle.Die Charité wurde 1710 vorsorglich als Pesthaus auf Veranlassung von Friedrich I. erbaut, da in Osteuropa eine Pestepedemie grassierte. Berlin blieb verschont und so diente es zunächst als Armen- und Arbeitshaus sowie als Garnisonslazarett, ab 1727 dann als Bürgerhospital. - Die Tafel zeigt links eine Vogelschauansicht der Charité und rechts einen Grundrissplan des am Ufer der Spree errichteten weitläufigen Klinikkomplexes.ERSTER PREUSSICHER "GENERALSTABSFELDMDICUS" UND ERSTER DIREKTOR DER BERLINER CHARITÉ.Nach einer gründlichen medizinischen und naturwissenschaftlichen Ausbildung, unter anderem bei Boerhaave in Leiden, Stahl in Halle und Studienaufenthalten in Paris, London und Amsterdam wurde Johann Theodor Eller (1689-1760) 1721 anhalt.-bernburgischer Leibarzt. In dieser Zeit führte er als einer der ersten in Deutschland die Pockeninoculation an mehreren Kindern aus. 1724 wurde er Hofrat und Professor am Collegium medico-chirurgicum. Mit Stahl verfasste er das Medicinaledict vom 27. Sept. 1725, Ausgangspunkt der Preußischen Sanitätseinrichtungen. 1735 wurde er der erste preußische Generalstabsfeldmedicus, Leibarzt Friedrich Wilhelm I und einer der Leibärzte Friedrich des Großen, sowie erster ärztlicher Direktor der Berliner Charité. Im Gegensatz zu den von der Medizingeschichtsschreibung hochgelobten Theoretikern und Systematikern (z.B. Boerhaave, Stahl, Hoffman, etc.) sind die Schriften dieses großen Arztes und Praktikers noch heute mit Genuss zu lesen, schöpfen sie doch aus dem Schatz ärztlicher Erfahrung und Beobachtung und nicht aus philosophischen Theorien.Vergleiche Diepgen-Heischkel, Medizin an der Berliner Charité, 5-14 Artelt, Medizin.

        The Coffee-House Politician; or, the Justice Caught in His Own Trap. A Comedy, as it is Acted at the Theatre Royal in Lincoln's Inn-Fields

      London: J. Watts, 1730. First edition, third issue, first state. [viii], 78 pp. 8vo. Disbound. Gatherings sprung, stab holes. In custom gray card folder. First edition, third issue, first state. [viii], 78 pp. 8vo. The third issue of Fielding's fifth play, Rape Upon Rape, a re-issue of the first edition sheets with a cancel title and preliminaries. "This is the new title given to Rape upon Rape when revived in the winter of 1730 … It was withdrawn after four performances and never staged again" (Battestin, Fielding Companion, p. 179). Rape upon Rape was inspired by the scandal of Colonel Francis Charteris, who received a royal pardon after raping his maid. The events earned Charteris the moniker "Rape-Master General of Great Britain." The play was first performed at the Hay-Market to only modest success and was revived the following season under the title The Coffee-House Politician (though the running titles retain the original title). The first edition is one of Fielding's rarer plays. Masengil, in "Variant Forms of Fielding's "Coffee-House Politician" (SB 5, pp. 178-183) identifies three issues of the play, the first under the title Rape upon Rape, and the second and third issues with the new title. They can be distinguished by certain typographical differences, the most apparent being the number of hyphens between Coffee and House in the title (one in the second issue, two in the third). In addition, the third issue exists in two states, distinguished by the cast list on A4v. Cross III, p. 291-2; Masengil, "Variant Forms of Fielding's "Coffee-House Politician," Studies in Bibliography 5, pp. 178-183

        Sacro arsenale, overo pratica dell'uffizio della santa inquisizione. Coll'inserzione di alcune regole fatte dal p. inquisitore Tommaso Menghini domenicano; e di diverse Annotazioni del dottore Gio. Pasqualone fiscale della Suprema generale inquisizione di Roma; in questa quarta impressione aggiuntavi la settima denunzia fatta dal suddetto padre per li sponte comparenti, impresso in Ferrara 1687, e corretta in alcune cose la parte decima degli avvertimenti, che sono posti in ordine di alfabeto con un'indice a parte; dedicato al glorioso inquisitore S. Pietro martire.In Roma, nella Stamperia di S. Michele a Ripa, 1730.

      In Roma, nella Stamperia di S. Michele a Ripa 1730 - Cm. 22,5, pp. (8) 506 (54) [la prima carta bianca editoriale che precede il frontespizio è presente]. Legatura ottimamente rimontata in piena perg. del tempo con titoli ms. al dorso. Nota di possesso di mano coeva al frontespizio. Qualche lieve e sporadica fioritura, arrossatura all'angolo interno inferiore delle carte finali. Esemplare ben conservato. Eliseo Masini, nato a Bologna nella seconda metà del XV secolo e morto a Genova nel 1627, fu commissario del S. Uffizio, giudice della fede e inquisitore ad Ancona, Mantova e Genova. "Dall'attività di giudice, il M. trasse ispirazione per compilare quello che restò per molto tempo il solo manuale in volgare destinato ai giudici del S. Uffizio romano: il Sacro arsenale overo Prattica dell'officio della Santa Inquisitione (Genova 1621). Il successo fu quasi immediato, anche perché il testo si presentava come un vademecum d'ufficio privo del consueto e sovrabbondante commento alle fonti bibliche, giuridiche e teologiche che, ancora nella prima metà del Seicento, appesantiva le pratiche e i testi di diritto inquisitoriale. Inoltre il S. Uffizio romano non poteva vantare né le istruzioni in volgare che la Suprema spagnola fece distribuire sin dalla nascita ai giudici di distretto, né le guide o i compendi che autori come Diego de Simancas o Pablo Garcìa avevano compilato negli anni Sessanta del XVI secolo. Il Sacro arsenale colmava dunque un vuoto editoriale grazie a un sapiente collage compilato a partire dalla Breve informatione per i vicari e dalle lettere circolari che la congregazione, dagli anni Ottanta del Cinquecento, aveva inviato ai giudici locali per mettere a conoscenza i singoli uffici del tribunale delle proprie prescrizioni amministrative o giudiziarie" (cfr. voce M. in DBI, vol. 71). Edizione tra le più complete di questo celebre manuale per l'inquisitore che doveva esaminare (e talvolta procedere alle diverse forme di tortura) eretici, sospetti d'eresia, fautori degli eretici, maghi, streghe, incantatori, bestemmiatori, oppositori del S. Uffizio, ebrei e infedeli. Cfr. Iccu; Edizioni giuridiche antiche in lingua italiana, II, 1, p. 233. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Il riposo.In Firenze, per Michele Nestenus e Francesco Moucke, 1730.

      In Firenze, per Michele Nestenus e Francesco Moucke 1730 - Cm. 22, pp. xxiv, 558 (2). Bellissima antiporta allegorica, vignetta al frontespizio bicromo, testatine, finalini e capilettera finemente incisi in rame. Legatura coeva in piena pergamena con titoli ms. al dorso; tagli spruzzati. Macchiette e lievi tracce d'uso alla legatura, sporadiche macchiette e qualche lieve alone limitato al margine di poche carte. Esemplare nel complesso ben conservato. Raffello Borghini (1537-1588), poeta e critico d'arte nativo di Firenze, fu autore di opere poetiche, traduzioni e commedie. Il Riposo, edito per la prima volta nel 1584 e considerato un classico della storiografia artistica, è un trattato in forma dialogica dedicato alla differenza tra scultura e pittura. "Gli studiosi moderni (dallo Schlosser Magnino, al Blunt, alla Barocchi, al Rosci) lo hanno preso in nuova considerazione, soprattutto come miniera non trascurabile di notizie. In esso sono minutamente descritte le opere d'arte raccolte nelle ville, nelle case e nelle chiese fiorentine; sono rappresentati dal vivo i costumi della società nobiliare fiorentina che, deposte le passioni civili si diede, dilettantescamente, a coltivare le arti, mettendo insieme collezioni, allestendo in palazzo o in villa piccole "officine" per il disegno e la scultura; sono inoltre documentati, e anche teorizzati, i gusti artistici prevalenti nello "studiolo" di Francesco I e nella Firenze del Giambologna, tra dignitoso e maturo classicismo e manierismo; sono fornite, infine, nella parte storica (là dove è abbandonata la fonte, sino a quel momento pedissequamente seguita ed epitomizzata, del Vasari, e sono riferite notizie di prima mano), informazioni preziose sugli artisti fiorentini, e non solo fiorentini, del secondo Cinquecento" (Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani, vol. XII). Così Gamba (242) a proposito di questa seconda edizione: "Ottima edizione. Contribuì alla sua bella riuscita Monsign. Bottari, il quale ideò l'antiporta istoriata, ne scrisse la Prefazione, e vi aggiunse alcune note. Il pittore veronese Antonio Balestra scriveva al Gaburri che l'edizione è bellissima, compita in tutte le sue parti e di gran lunga meglio della prima".

        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.

        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 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).

        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]
