ENGELBRECHT, Martin (designer and engraver). [German Village Street Scene. Oktoburfest Celebrants Carouse and Make Merry]. [N.p., Ausburg]: [n.p., Christian and Martin Engelbrecht], [n.d., c. 1730]. Number thirty-six in an ongoing series of unknown total, complete, as issued. Six hand-colored, hand cut-out copperplate engravings (6 1/2 x 8 in; 167 x 204 mm) mounted on cardboard, each signed Cum Priv. S.C. Maj. (left corner), Mart. Engelbrecht excud. A.V," (right corner) and "36" (center). On the rear to each is a contemporary holograph "36-298" and number, 1 through 6, by the same hand. When consecutively mounted and arranged front to back within a display box the cut-out plates create a 3-D perspective scene. Minor edgewear, a bit of soiling as expected. Numbers two and four with early reinforcement to rear, otherwise an excellent set. Considering that it was used for entertainment purposes, it is startling to have survived the past 279 years. There are no auction records in ABPC for any of Engelbrect's peepshows/miniature theaters within the last thirty-five years and library holdings are near absent for any of them; none at all for this tableau. Housed in a custom miniature theater display box within an elegant protective case.Artist Martin Engelbrecht (1684-1756) and his brother Christian were printsellers and engravers in Augsburg, Germany during the eighteenth century. Martin Engelbrecht engraved some plates after Rugendas and other masters. His other works included illustrations for Ovid’s Metamorphoses, The War of Spanish Succession, Les Architectes Princiers by P. Decker, 92 views of Venice, and a series of prints of workers and their dress, Assemblage Nouveau Des Manouvries Habilles, published at Augsburg, circa 1730. Also in about 1730, he created cards for miniature theaters, which when inserted into a display box showed religious scenes and pictures of daily life in perspective view.

        Insula Ceilon olim Taprobana. Carte de L'Isle de Ceylan

      1730. Guillaulme de l'Isle è il figlio e pupillo del famoso astronomo e cartografo francese Jean Dominique Cassini, con il quale si dedicò ad importanti studi sul calcolo delle longitudini. Le carte del de l'Isle sono caratterizzate dall'estrema precisione e da un'accuratezza della toponimia, e sebbene molto precise conservano il fascino e l'eleganza della storia e furono la base della successiva cartografia anche in Olanda e in Italia. La tipografia Covens e Mortier acquisì molto del materiale cartografico del De L'Isle, forse anche perché Mortier era di origine francese. La carta dell'isola di Ceylon dimostra la grande qualità della cartografia del De L'Isle, basata su informazioni che arrivavano dai viaggi della Compagnia delle Indie. Incisione in rame, coloritura coeva, in ottime condizioni. Bibliografia: Koeman, C&M 7, 91. Dimensioni 585x480. Guillaume de l'Isle (1675 - 1726) was the son and pupil of the cartographer Jean Dominique Cassini, who, among other important contributions, aligned the study of astronomy to the study of geography. Under Cassini's direction, observations were made from locations all over the world that enabled longitudinal calculations to be made with much greater accuracy. De l'Isle carried on this exacting work with remarkable dedication and integrity, constantly revising and improving his maps. While precision was his primary goal, his maps are invariably elegant and attractive. Jean (Johannes) Covens and Corneille (Cornelius) Mortier were brothers - in - law, who carried on the book publishing business established by Pierre Mortier in Amsterdam in 1685. Pierre Mortier's company owed much of its success to his access to French publishers, whose publications he re - issued in handsome editions. The elder Mortier died in 1711; his wife continued the firm until she died in 1719. In 1721, Covens and Mortier formed a partnership, Covens having married Agatha Mortier in the same year. They continued the business by publishing enlarged editions of Sanson, Jaillot, and De L'Isle, as well as some of the later Dutch cartographical masters such as De Wit and Allard, and of course Pierre Mortier. This map is from an edition of De L'Isle entitled, Atlas Nouveau, Contenant Toutes Les Parties Du Monde, Ou sont exactement Remarquées les Empires, Monarchies, Royaumes, Etats, Republiques &c. Par Guillaume de l'Isle. Premier Géographe de sa Majesté. It delineates the island in great detail. At the time the map was made, the coastal areas were ruled by the Dutch East Indian Company, who were undoubtedly responsible for the soundings indicated around the island and for mapping the roads depicted. Copper engraving, contemporary colour, in perfect condition. Amsterdam Amsterdam Koeman, C&M 7, 91. Dimensioni 585x480.

        Diversi Globi Terr-Acquei Statione Variante et Visu Intercedente per Coluros Tropicorum, per Ambos Polos, et Particul. Sphaerae Zenith in Planum Delineati Orthographici Propectus.

      Augsburg 1730 - Incisione in rame, coloritura originale d'epoca con ricchi e fascinosi cartigli in bianco nero. Mm 495x576. Decorativa carta del mondo che raffigura i due emisferi contornati da dodici globi e ventiquattro allegorie dei venti. La California è ancora raffigurata come isola, la costa pacifica degli Stati Uniti non è delineata e l’Australia appare incompleta. Seutter, dopo un apprendistato presso Homann a Norimberga, trasferitosi ad Augsburg verso il 1710, aprì la propria attività superando il maestro sotto il profilo della bellezza: le sue carte hanno sempre colori brillanti e cartigli elaborati. Ottimo esemplare. Buon esemplare con margini reintegrati e piccolo restauri agli angoli. Copperplate, original colour. Mm 495x576. Very good example in fine colour. This map-world depicts the world in two hemispheres surrounded by twelve globes and twenty-four allegorical wind heads. California appears as an island, the west coast is missing, Australia is incomplete. It first appeared in Seutter's Atlas Novus between 1728 and 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. New margins added and some restoration at corners. Phillips, Atlases 583:3 or 593:2. Shirley 578n

This was a fine general library, rich in the best 17th and 18th-century editions of history, geography, and law.

        De Morbo Gallico, Treatise of the French Disease bound with The Force of the Mother's Imagination upon Her Foetus in Utero

      Thomas Warner; John Clarke; J. Walthoe, [et al.], London 1730 - 2 volumes in 1. Hardcover. [12], 110, [2] p.; 192 p. Bound in contemporary Cambridge-style leather. 4 raised bands. Good binding and cover. Wear to extremities. Signature on title page, corner of title pages removed to excise another signature. Pages lightly tanned, with scattered foxing and toning. Surg-Gen. Daniel Turner (1667-1741) was a London surgeon best known for his treatment of venereal disease and other diseases of the skin, later recognized as one of the founders of British dermatological studies, had become engaged in a pamphlet war with James Blondel on maternal powers of imagination shortly after the Mary Toft scandal, in which a women stated she gave birth to rabbits in 1726. Blondel took aim on a new chapter in Turner?s 1726 Third Edition of "De Morbis Cutaneis. A Treatise of Diseases Incident to the Skin." Blundell confuted the plastic power attributed to the imagination of the mother during pregnancy and twelfth chapter of the treatise by Daniel Turner, devoted to maternal fancy as the cause of molae, and the theory in general. This dispute would continue for the next 4 years, with Blundell advocating the ovist and preformationist position (associated with Harvey), in which all parts of the fetus already exist in the egg before conception. Turner and the imaginationists would employ Newtonian ideas and terminology to show that a thoughts and imagination would affect their offspring and such actions, especially birthmarks on children could not be removed.

      Leipzig, Bernhard Christoph Breitkopf, 1730. - Seltene erste Ausgabe eines der bedeutendsten literaturtheoretischen Werke des 18. Jahrhunderts, geschrieben von dem gerade 29jährigen späteren Professor der Poesie (seit 1730) an der Leipziger Universität. Die Vorrede datiert vom 6. Oktober 1729. "Kein Zweifel, daß er mit seiner Dichtkunst den Zeitgenossen gab, was sie damals verlangten und bedurften. Er begründete auf dem Gebiet der Poesie die Herrschaft der vernunftmäßigen Regel, welche sich auf die Autorität der anerkannten Muster stützte . Er schließt die Reihe der Poetiken ab, in welchen seit den Tagen der Renaissance die altüberlieferte Kunstlehre dogmatisch vorgetragen worden. . Unter allen Lehrbüchern in der deutschen Sprache ist dies das letzte, welches in das Leben der Litteratur unmittelbar bestimmend eingegriffen" (ADB IX 503). In der Geschlossenheit und entschiedenen Konsequenz seines Entwurfes war es in der deutschen Entwicklung eine imponierende Leistung und ein Verdienst um die Pflege und Bildung der deutschen Sprache und um eine Rückführung des deutschen Theaters zur Formenreinheit der Antike. Von den Schweizern Bodmer und Breitinger wurde Gottsched bald kritisiert und von der Literaturentwicklung teils überholt. Der Blick auf Gottscheds eigentliche Leistung wurde lange "durch die kritisch-spöttischen Urteile versperrt, wie sie Lessing und Goethe (in 'Dichtung und Wahrheit') über seine Person und sein Werk fällten; immerhin gestand man ihm zu, daß er durch seinen Kampf gegen spätbarocke Verwilderungsformen den Weg zur Weimarer Klassik ebnen half" (KNLL). Erst in der 2. Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts setzte die objektive Würdigung Gottscheds ein. – Titel verso mit altem Stempel und kurzer Rasurspur (Löchlein tektiert). Sauberes, nur gering gebräuntes Exemplar. – VD18 11394609; Goed. III 361, 38; Faber du Faur 1762 (ohne Frontispiz). Vgl. Jantz 1167 ff (nur spätere Ausgaben). [Attributes: First Edition]

        Hemisphaerium coeli AustraleÉ

      Artist: Homann JB - Doppelmayr JG; Issued in: Nuremberg; date: c 1730 - Artist: Homann, J.B. - Doppelmayr, J.G.; Issued in: Nuremberg; date: c. 1730; - Condition: Very good; Decorative map of the zodiacs of the southern hemisphere constellation, with decorative vignettes of celestial monsters and animals. The tables along the sides identify and describe the constellations on the chart.Homann was born in Oberkammlach near Kammlach in the Electorate of Bavaria. Although educated at a Jesuit school, and preparing for an ecclesiastical career, he eventually converted to Protestantism and from 1687 worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography in 1702 he founded his own publishing house. Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as a recommendation for potential customers. In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt (Grand Atlas of all the World). Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, who also published Siebmachers Wappenbuch. Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, which was in business until 1848. The company was known as Homann Erben, Homanniani Heredes, or Heritiers de Homann abroad.

Drapier's Letters is the collective name for a series of seven pamphlets written between 1724 and 1725 by the Dean of St Patrick's Cathedral in Dublin, Jonathan Swift, to arouse public opinion in Ireland against the imposition of a privately minted copper coinage that Swift believed to be of inferior quality. William Wood was granted letters patent to mint the coin, and Swift saw the licensing of the patent as corrupt. In response, Swift represented Ireland as constitutionally and financially independent of Britain in the Drapier's Letters. Jonathan Swift (1667 &#150; 1745) was an Anglo-Irish satirist, essayist, political pamphleteer (first for the Whigs, then for the Tories), poet and cleric who became Dean of St Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin. Swift is remembered for works such as Gulliver's Travels, A Modest Proposal, A Journal to Stella, Drapier's Letters, The Battle of the Books, An Argument Against Abolishing Christianity and A Tale of a Tub. He is regarded by the Encyclopædia Britannica as the foremost prose satirist in the English language, and is less well known for his poetry We find this same book for sale elsewhere for over $1,905!

Royal-8vo (202 x 165 mm). pp. (6), 40; (4), 45; (6), 39; (8), 45; (6), 51, (5); (12), 34; (10), 31; (8), 42; (8), 38; (8), 25, (5); (8), 34; (8), 44; (10), 35, (5), with 13 printed titles, the first in red and black, 13 charming engraved vignettes and 274 engravings on 40 plates (in a few cases there are 2 plates on one leaf). Contemporary vellum (some skilfull repairs). The first important German treatise on insects' (Miall p. 240). Johann Leonard Frisch (1666-1743) was director of a Berlin gymnasium and author of several dictionaries. He is remembered as the introducer of the mulberry into Prussia. The present work was issued over a period of 18 years describing some 300 different insects. The fine plates were engraved after Frisch's own drawings, some by Philip Jacob his son./'Frisch was a careful and diligent observer, bent not merely upon observing, but upon interpreting the facts of structures and habit. He takes one insect at a time, describes its external features, figures it in all stages, if possible, and tells all that he has been able to discover about its mode of life' (Miall pp. 240-1). It is very rare to find a fine copy of this book, which is mostly found in poor condition, like the present copy. Our copy is somewhat browned and the upper margins at the beginning and end of the book have been grawned by mice, not affecting the text. The first part is a second issue as is often the case with this book, the other parts are in the first issue.//Hagen I, 254; Nissen ZBI, 1436; Miall, L.C., The early naturalists, their lives and work (1580-1789), pp. 240-244).
