        West-Friesland, Medemblik en de Vier Noorder Koggen - Hendrik de Leth, 1732.

      ?Nieuwe Kaarte van het Dijkgraafschap van ?t ooster Baljuwschap van West-Vriesland, genaamt Medenblick en de Vier Noorder Coggen.? Vervaardigd door kaarttekenaar Pieter Straat en ?In ?t Koper gebragt door Hendrik de Leth? te Amsterdam in 1732. Vier gemonteerde bladen tezamen 93 x 114 cm. Later met de hand gekleurd.In de Middeleeuwen was West-Friesland verdeeld in vier ambachten, bovenlokale bestuurseenheden die vermoedelijk al bestonden voor West-Friesland werd onderworpen door de graven van Holland. Deze ambachten bestonden op hun beurt uit enkele zgn. koggen, die weer in bannen (dorpen) waren onderverdeeld. De Vier Noorder Koggen bestond uit vier koggen: de Hoogwouder Kogge, de Middelkogge, de Zeekogge of Medemblikker Kogge, en de Wognumer Kogge. Na de onderwerping van de Westfriezen door Floris V en definitief door Jan I, werden baljuwschappen ingesteld die de hoge jurisdictie hadden en belast waren met het toezicht op de dijken. Samen met Drechterland vormde de Vier Noorder Koggen het Oosterbaljuwschap van West-Friesland. Dit baljuwschap was overigens geen lang leven beschoren: in het begin van de 15e eeuw werd een groot deel van het platteland van West-Friesland verdeeld in ?plattelandssteden? met stadsrecht, de rest werd onder de jurisdictie van een van de bestaande steden gevoegd.Het gedeelte van de Westfriese Omringdijk dat onder het beheer van de Vier Noorder Koggen viel, stond onder toezicht van de superintendenten van de Vier Noorder Koggen. Dit waren aanvankelijk twaalf, later zes afgevaardigden uit de Hollandse steden Haarlem, Amsterdam, Alkmaar, Hoorn, Enkhuizen en Medemblik. Het ontstaan van het ambacht zelf als dijkgraafschap is in 1503: in dat jaar wordt het ?Oosterdijkgraafschap? gesplitst in de Vier Noorder Koggen en Drechterland, die ieder hun eigen dijkgraaf krijgen.Drukker en uitgever Hendrik de Leth adverteerde op 23 en 30 december 1732 met deze kaart in de Amsterdamsche Courant. Het omschrijft de uitgave als ?een nieuwe accurate Kaert van het Dygraefschap en Ooster Baljuwschap van West-Friesland, genaemt Medenblick ende vier Noorder Coggen, zynde dit het Ambacht waer de plage der Wormen ?t meest heeft gewoed?.In het begin van de jaren dertig van de achttiende eeuw werd de Westfriese bevolking opgeschrikt door de vraatzucht van een 20 tot 40 centimeter lang weekdier. Dit beestje moet in de romp van schepen ge?mmigreerd zijn en vond in de honderdduizenden Nederlandse dijkpalen een ideale verblijfplaats. Deze paalworm tastte het houtwerk van de omringdijk aan. In de decennia v??r 1730 waren duizenden houten palen de grond in geheid om de bij stormen beukende golven te breken. Insmeren met traan, hars en boekdrukkersinkt mocht niet baten.Om de verdere activiteiten van de paalworm te stoppen, en zodoende de risico?s van een dijkdoorbraak te verkleinen, werd besloten om de palen te vervangen door een steenglooiing aan de buitenkant van de dijk. De vele tonnen steen werden aangevoerd uit Belgi?, Duitsland, Denemarken en Noorwegen. In Drenthe werden voor dit doel zelfs hunnebedden kapotgeslagen. De bestrijding van de paalworm was een enorme klus, nog tot rond 1800 werden stenen aangevoerd.In de rechter onderhoek laat de kaart op een uiterst decoratieve wijze zien wat de bewonders in het dagelijks leven bezig hield, c.q. waar zij rekening mee dienden te houden. Zo staat de Vier Noorder Koggedijk afgebeeld, die bij woeste zee kon doorbreken. Hiervoor zorgden Neptunus en koning Aeolus, de goden van de zee en van de vier blazende winden. Hun activiteiten brengen op de achtergrond enkele schepen in nood. Als de bewoners waakzaam zijn (dit wordt gesymboliseerd door de haan) en vlijtig (bijenkorven) hun land bewerken (ploeg, riek, spade) en bovendien hun vee (koe) goed verzorgen, zullen zij oogsten (korenschoof) en genieten van de ?hoorn des overvloeds?.Prijs: ?2.350,-.

        Cymbalum Mundi, ou Dialogues Satyriques Sur differens Sujets; Par Bonaventure Des Periers. Avec une Lettre Critique dans laquelle on fait l'Histoire, l'Analyse, & l'Apologie de cet Ouvrage. Par Prosper Marchand, Libraire. Nouvelle Edition. Revue, corrigee & augmentee...

      Amsterdam : Chez Prosper Marchand, Libraire dans les Nes, a l'Enseigne de l'Etoile. 1732. 12mo, xxx, 1 leaf blank, 243, [5] pp, title-page in red-and-black, engraved title and 4 plates after Bernard Picart, additional title-page at p.67, contemporary calf, french fillet borders, the coat of arms of the Comte de Plelo on each cover and a reduced version at each corner, spine fully gilt, edges stained red, hinges neatly repaired. Bound before :- "Catéchisme des nouveaux disciples de S. Augustin, tiré de leurs ouvrages. Utrecht 1732"The first edition, of 1537, was found to be scandalously heretical and was rigidly suppressed even before publication so that today there is only one recorded copy. In 1711 Marchand published an edition from a manuscript copy of the 1538 edition in the royal library but now states that the present text is taken from a copy, "peutetre unique" (Avertissement page ii) of the 1537 edition, and corrected and annotated by MM. Falconet et Lancelot. Louis Robert Hipolite de Bréhan, comte de Plélo (1699-1734), soldier and diplomat, latterly French ambassador to Denmark. In 1733 Stanislas Leszczyński was recalled to the throne of Poland. Austria and Russia combined forces against him, initiating the Polish War of Succession. King Stanislaus I took refuge in Gdansk (Danzig), which was besieged in 1734 by 30,000 Russians. The French generals, who had come to break the siege with some 2000 troups, declared that it was impossible and re-empbarked for Copenhagen. Louis de Plélo considered this withdrawal to be a dishonour, and strongly disapproved of the military officials during a council held in his presence. Goaded by an officer remarking that "it is easy to say that from the safety of your office", de Plelo mustered the few remaining troups and himself lead an attack. He succeeded in forcing three retrenchments, but died, riddled with bullets and his face slashed by a sabre, under the walls of Danzig.

      1732. CALMET, Dom Augustin. An Historical, Critical, Geographical, Chronological, and Etymological Dictionary of the Holy Bible… London: Printed for J.J. and P. Knapton et al., 1732. Three volumes. Folio (10 by 16 inches), period-style full speckled calf, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, raised bands, red morocco spine labels. $8500.Scarce first edition in English of Augustin Calmet’s impressive biblical dictionary, illustrated with 160 copperplate engravings (over 50 double-page) depicting scriptural places, people and traditions, the Duke of Bedford's copy, very handsomely bound.A French Benedictine abbot, historian and pioneering biblical exegete, Antoine Augustin Calmet authored several key theological texts as well as this comprehensive dictionary of ""all the Proper Names mentioned in the Old or New Testament, whether of Men, Women, Cities, Countries, Rivers, Mountains &c."" In large part it collects explanatory essays from Calmet's ""epoch-making"" 1707 commentary on the Latin Vulgate, ""which treat such topics as Hebrew poetry, music, weights and measures, medicine, marriage customs, burial customs, military organization, circumcision, the Sanhedrin and Hebrew schools and sects, and are, for his time, remarkably full and judicious"" (Jewish Encyclopedia). ""Most valuable… In Volume III is a very extensive Bibliotheca Sacra [a catalogue of editions of the Bible] which… displays great erudition and research"" (Lowndes, 350). Illustrated with 160 detailed copperplate engravings, over a third of them double-page; also with engraved vignette headpiece on first text page of each volume. Title pages printed in red and black. First published in French in two folio volumes in 1720; ""a supplement (also folio) was added in 1728. An improved and enlarged edition in four folio volumes was published in 1730"" (Catholic Encyclopedia). D'Oyly, a parish vicar, and Colson, a mathematician, began their translation prior to 1730, but revised it to take account of Calmet's changes. ""The work reveals Colson's interest in arithmetic, calculations, tables and measurement"" (DNB). Armorial bookplates of John, seventh Duke of Bedford (1710-71) and John, ninth Duke of Bedford (1766-1839); the volumes hail from the library at Woburn Abbey, Scattered light foxing, occasional light marginal dampstaining. Minor loss to lower corners of a few leaves. Archival tissue repair to fore-edge of frontispiece, Volume I. Expert paper repairs to the dedication leaf and a few splits to folds on folding plates. An impressive production in excellent condition, most handsomely bound. Scarce.

        Les Avantures de Jacques Sadeur dans la decouverte et le voyage de la Terre Australe...

      Amsterdam: David Mortier, 1732. Duodecimo, contemporary calf, spine panelled in gilt between raised bands. Fourth French edition, based on the Paris version of 1692.A revised edition, prepared by François Raguenet, possibly from a manuscript by Foigny himself. The dangerously heretical nature of the first edition has been tempered here by concentrating on the fabulous rather than the social and political.One of the earliest and best of all imaginary voyages to Australia, Foigny's book refers to the inhabitants of his Terre Australe as "Australiens" - the first time that the term was used to describe an inhabitant of the southern continent.Foigny (c.1650-1692) had a turbulent life. A promising career as a Franciscan monk was scotched by his 'licentious behaviour' and he was forced to flee to Geneva and Protestantism. The narrative purports to be the dying gift of the sailor Sadeur to an anonymous narrator. Twice kidnapped and four times shipwrecked, Sadeur only survives when he is plucked from the sea by a gigantic winged monster which fortuitously drops him on the shores of Western Australia. Ashore, his luck continues: as an hermaphrodite himself (the Jesuit priests called him male as a convenience) Sadeur is especially acceptable to the hermaphroditic, asexual society that he discovers. The Australians' utopian rejection of the body is responsible for their society's rationality and harmony. In this world Sadeur's curiosity and levity about the topic is considered very de trop, yet worse his 'propensity to unseemly arousal' (Rees).As in many imaginary voyages - Swift's Houhnyhyms, and their debates about the extermination of the Yahoos represent perhaps the best known example - the perfection of the community tolerates no impurities. Thus, the otherwise detached Australians are involved in a brutal war of annihilation with the Fundian 'half-men': crucially, Sadeur cannot stomach the war, a fact only complicated when 'bored by decades of sexless bliss, rational discussions and indoctrinations, athletic exercises and peaceful gardening ... [Sadeur] falls for a female among the enemy' (Friederich).This important work, which combines several major traditions, is 'a major utopia, rich in satire and iconoclasm' (Gibson) and presents a narrative response to the strict regimentation of the utopia, particularly in the context of the Pacific (Spate comments: 'in part at least a send-up of Quiros').All of the early editions of the Sadeur text are of considerable rarity: like the 1692 edition, this has only six listings in NUC. Slight wear at extremities.
