        Globi Coelestis in Tabulas Planas Redacti Pars V in qua Longitudines Stellarum fixarum ad anum Christi completum 1730 tam Arithmetice quam Geometrice exhibentur

      Nuremburg: J. B. Homann, circa 1730. Hand-coloured engraving. Good condition, margins re-backed to restore several minor losses and tears. 19 1/4 x 23 inches. 21 1/4 x 24 3/4 inches. A dramatic star chart by Doppelmayr illustrating the early winter zodiacal signs: Scorpio, Sagittarius, and part of Capricorn Johann Gabriel Doppelmayr (1677-1750) was a Nuremberg astronomer and mapmaker, who made globes, star charts, moon charts and completed Homann's Atlas Coelestis in 1742. This is part V of a group of six showing the entire panorama of the night sky as known and represented in the early 18th century. The stars are differentiated according to magnitude, and there is an extensive star index on each side of the chart. Johann Batiste Homann (1663-1724) began his professional life as an engraver for others, founding his own cartographical firm in 1702. He brought back to life German mapmaking, which virtually ceased in the early 16th century, using Dutch cartography as his guide and starting point.

        North America, according to the Newest and most Exact Observations

      London., [1730]. [The Codfish Map] To the Right Honourable John Lord Sommers... 2 sheets joined. Size: 595 x 980 mm. In a delightful hand made frame. Copperplate engraving with original outline colour. Some skilful paper restoration to map folds and to worm holes. Good general condition. Moll's famous "codfish map", so-called for its large and informative cartouche of the cod industry. Dried codfish was the staple diet of the Royal Navy, and the fish itself was popular all over Europe. The British also had the largest fishing boat fleet off the Grand Banks. Moll was a German émigré who settled and lived in London. As a newly patriotic and loyal Englishman, Moll wished to depict codfish as being one of the great commercial success stories of the British colonization of North America. Moll highlights 10 important ports and harbours from Boston to Cartagena and Acapulco. There is also a truly magnificent title cartouche dedicated to Lord Sommers. Moll includes information about the annual Spanish treasure convoys that picked up gold, silver, and gems from their ports in Mexico and Central America. In London, Moll patronised Jonathan's Coffee House, in Cornhill. It was here that City equity traders and speculators would meet and discuss matters of importance and interest. Other patrons included the authors Jonathan Swift, Daniel Defoe, the archaeologist William Stukely, the seafarers William Dampier and William Hacke, the scientist Robert Hooke, and the piratical Woodes Rogers. Thus we can speculate that Moll had access to very privileged knowledge and information - information he could put to excellent use in his maps and charts (Reinhartz, The Cartographer and the Literati: Herman Moll and his Intellectual Circle.)

        [Opere] Orlando furioso ... delle annotazioni de' più celebri autori che sopra esso hanno scritto, e di altre utili, e vaghe giunte in questa impressione adornato, come nell'indice seguente la prefazione si vede

      Venice: Stefano Orlandini, 1730. Boards. Folio (39 cm); 2 volumes: [50], 576; [4] 400 pages, and 52 engraved plates. Half title present, first title printed in red and black, with engraved vignette on title page. Full-page portrait of the author by C. Orsolini. Second title within engraved border by Giuseppe Filosi. Section title to the Commedia within woodcut allegorical border. Fifty-one full-page engravings by Filosi and by Giuliano Giampicoli, within one of 3 elaborate borders, one signed Filosi. Woodcut head- and tailpieces. Poetry in italic type, prose in Roman type. Bound in recent quarter leather over buckram-covered boards, with seven panel, leather title labels in period style. Bright and crisp impressions, clean and fresh text. References: Agnelli Ravegnani I,3 ("Bella e pregevole edizione"); Morazzoni 213; Gamba 60; Brunet I,437; Graesse I,199; Melzi 173; Harthan, 164. Splendid illustrated edition of Ariosto's works, considered the culmination of 17th-century baroque styles of Venetian book design and the first emergence of the 18th-century neoclassical flowering. Ariosto's new status as a monumental Italian poet is reflected in the format of these massive volumes, representing the first appearance of the Orlando Furioso in folio in Italian. (In the 16th and 17th centuries, which saw countless quarto editions, Ariosto had not yet reached Parnassus.) This copy features strong, clean impressions of the plates, including the Orsolini's great portrait, and fifty-one elaborate, full-page allegories ahead of each canto of Orlando Furioso (which occupies the entire first volume) and the Cinque Canti. The contents of the second volume also include the seven comedies, the epistle to Bembo, the satires, L'Erbolato, and poetry in Italian and Latin.

      Stockholm: in Verlegung des Autoris, 1730. Quarto. (8 5/8 x 7 1/8 inches). 10 engraved plates (4 folding, 1 double-page), 1 folding woodcut chart, 1 folding letterpress table, 12 woodcut illustrations and samples of alphabets. (Light worming to final twenty leaves). Contemporary sheep over bevelled wooden boards, spine in five compartments with raised bands, lettering-piece in second compartment, repeat tooling in gilt in the others, two leather and brass clasps to covers, red-stained edges. First edition of the author's important survey of Siberia and Great Tartary. A Swedish officer taken prisoner during Charles XII's campaign in Russia, Strahlenberg was held captive in Siberia for thirteen years. Situated in Tobolsk from 1711 to 1721, he was able to explore the lower basins of the Ob and Yenisey rivers, gathering the geographical information regarding the northern and eastern parts of Europe and Asia recorded in this book. The text is of great importance offering much first-hand information -- geographical, historical and ethnographic -- about Siberia and Great Tartary. The work also includes early descriptions of the linguistics of the region, with a Kalmyv vocabulary including the translations of Mongolian words. A large folding table contains a comparative list of words in thirty-two dialects from Eastern Europe and Asia. The work would be translated into English, French and Spanish before 1800. This copy without the separately-issued map "Nova descriptio geographica Tattariae Magnae", as usual. Bell S698; Brunet V, 558.

        [Twelve Months of Flowers]

      Kensington: Robert Furber, 1730[-1732]. Folio. (24 3/8 x 19 1/4 inches). Mounted on guards. Engraved throughout, list of subscribers (sheet size: 22 5/8 x 18 5/8 inches) with hand-coloured engraved decorative border, 12 hand-coloured plates by Henry Fletcher after Casteels (approx. sheet size: 21 2/4 x 17 3/4 inches). Expertly bound to style in 18th-century diced russia, covers with decorative roll at outer border, the flat spine divided into ten compartments with a greek-key roll flanked by pairs of fillets, red morocco lettering-piece in the second compartment, repeat decoration of a large flower-spray tool surrounded by small tools. Rare complete first edition of this ground-breaking and highly decorative flower catalogue: an incomparable record of the most fashionable flowering plants of the early eighteenth century, here with the title/subscribers' page and fine contemporary hand-colouring. Furber was a nurseryman from Kensington, then on the outskirts of London. Twelve Months of Flowers presented almost 400 different flowering species, grouped according to the month in which they flower. Reflecting in style the grand manner of the Baroque period, the flowers are arranged in elaborate bouquets and placed in elegant urns. Next to each flower appears a number, which corresponds to a name in the key printed at the bottom of the plate on either side of a cartouche inscribed with the name of one of the months of the year. "Twelve Months was conceived as a flower catalogue, but its commercial function was adroitly veiled and the artistic quality of its illustrations distinguishes it from the more modest pamphlets generally produced by floriculturalists, including Furber himself, in this period. For the work, Furber sought the collaboration of Pieter Casteels (1684-1749), an artist from Antwerp who had achieved great renown throughout England for his paintings of birds and flowers, which decorated the walls of many aristocratic homes. Casteels designed the series of twelve floral plates, which were then engraved by Henry Fletcher, an artist well known for his engravings of famous paintings and portraits. The plates were designed to be afterwards coloured by hand, as they are in the present and the Oak Spring copy" (Oak Spring Flora pp.145-146). The leaf which precedes the plates is engraved and printed on the recto only with a combination of subscriber's list (with a list of over 430 wealthy subscribers), dedication and title page (with the title of the work and the names of the authors). This page is framed by a wide border including a number of the showier flowering plants, including tulips, irises and many auriculas, a very popular flower at the beginning of the eighteenth century. Many new species were cultivated and, like the tulip a century earlier, named after a famous contemporary or classical figure, such as the "Earl of Derby", "Artemesia" or "Ascanius." One of the remarkable features of each of the twelve plates, is that despite "their great profusion, every flower in these compositions is readily identifiable. They range from native species to exotic specimens from America: Furber records that he received various specimens from Mark Catesby, 'a very curious gentleman from Virginia' ..." (op. cit.).

      London: H. Moll, T. & J. Bowles, P. Overton & J. King, [circa 1730]. Copper-engraved map, with original outline colour, in excellent condition. 25 3/4 x 41 inches. Moll's highly decorative map of Russia, dedicated to Czar Peter the Great An imperialist at heart, Herman Moll did little to disguise his admiration for Czar Peter the Great (ruled 1683-1725), to whom this map was dedicated. Peter's aspirations for a greater Russia required access to both the Baltic and Black Seas. By the time this map was conceived, he had secured access to both by hard-won military campaigns over Sweden and the Ottomans. Accordingly, an inset on this map features the new Russian port on the Sea of Asof (Asov), an arm of the Black Sea. The cartouche is a resplendent tribute to Peter, who is depicted in an oval draped with laurels, while above angels and cherubs celebrate his accomplishments, and his vanquished foes wallow below. Moll incorporated new geographical information in this map which came from surveys commissioned by the Czar. 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.

        Methodus inveniendi Lineas Curvas Maximi Minimive proprietate gaudentes, sive Solutio Problematis isoperimetrici latissimo sensu accepti.Lausanne & Geneve: Marcum-Michaelem Bosquet & Socios, 1744. First edition.

      An exceptionally fine copy of "Euler's most valuable contribution to mathematics in which he developed the concept of the calculus of variations." (Norman). "This work displays an amount of mathematical genius seldom rivaled." (Cajori). "The book brought him immediate fame and recognition as the greatest living mathematician." (Kline).<br/><br/> Horblit 28; Evans 9; Dibner 111; Sparrow 60; Norman 731.<br/><br/> "Starting with several problems solved by Johann and Jakob Bernoulli, Euler was the first to formulate the principal problems of the calculus of variations and to create general methods for their solution. In <i>Methodus inveniendi lineas curvas ...</i> he systematically developed his discoveries of the 1730's (1739, 1741). The very title of the work shows that Euler widely employed geometric representations of functions as flat curves . Here he introduced, using different terminology, the concepts of function and variation and distinguished between problems of absolute extrema and relative extrema, showing how the latter are reduced to the former . (DSB). <br/><br/> "In this book Euler extended known methods of the calculus of variations to form and solve differential equations for the general problem of optimizing single-integral variational quantities. He also showed how these equations could be used to represent the positions of equilibrium of elastic and flexible lines, and formulated the first rigorous dynamical variational principle." (Craig G. Fraser). <br/><br/> "Basel had achieved enough glory in the history of mathematics through being the home of the Bernoullis, but she doubled her glory, when she produced Léonard Euler."

A few small marginal tears, one map with a bit of soiling in lower right corner and one center-fold with a small repair. Otherwise in very fine and clean condition.. Scarce and fine complete Seutter-Atlas issued by the engraver Matthaeus Roth in Wien. Matthäus Seutter the Elder first published his "Atlas Geographicus" in 1720 and added to the contents in subsequent editions under the title "Atlas Novus". All the maps have his signature or that of his sons Georg Matthäus. Later versions of the atlas may include maps signed by J.B. Homann or his heirs.Seutter was born in 1685, son of a goldsmith in Augsburg. In 1697, Seutter began his studies at Nüremberg and subsequently worked in the printing house of Jeremias Wolff in Augsburg. In 1710 he established his own publishing house and printshop. The Seutter publishing house produced a great number of maps, atlases and globes. However very few original maps were printed there, as Augsburg at that time had no university and no connection to the fields of mathematics or the natural sciences. Seutter therfore copied the work of other carthographers, making his own engravings based on their models. Over 500 maps were produced in his studio. He died 1757 and his son Albrecht Karl, his son-in-law Conrad Tobias Lotter, and his businesspartner Johann Michael Probst ran the printing business for five more years.Shirley: T.SEU-1a (but our copy having 4 more plates (3 maps)). - Not in Phillips
