      London: Printed for John Walthoe, Thomas Wotton, and 5 others,, 1732. Some Now first Printed from original Manuscripts, Others Now first Published in English. In Six Volumes. With a General preface, giving an Account of the progress of Navigation, from its first Beginning. Illustrated with a great Number of useful Maps and Cuts, Curiously Engraven. 6 volumes, folio (351 × 216 mm).

Somewhat flaked and crackled on the boards, but spines presenting very well, light browning, else very good. Second, enlarged edition. "Compiled by Awnsham and John Churchill, this is a very valuable collection, both for its range of coverage and for the fact that it gives the original accounts" (Hill). It includes the voyages of Nieuhoff, Baldaeus, and Thomas Phillips. Originally published in 1704 in four volumes, this edition includes an additional two volumes. By the third edition (1744-7), the work had grown to eight volumes. Awnsham Churchill was John Locke's publisher, and in the third edition the preliminary essay on the history of navigation is described as being 'supposed to be written by the celebrated Mr. Locke', and it was included in the 1812 edition of his works. However, "The authorship is doubtful, but Locke had much to do with getting together the materials of the collection, which is likely to have been produced at his instigation. Locke was upon friendly terms with Awnsham Churchill for many years, and left him a small legacy" (DNB).

      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.

        Philosophia Rationalis Sive Logica, Methodo Scientifica Pertractata Et Ad Usum Scietiarum Atque Vitae Aptata. Praemittitur Discursus Praeliminaris De Philosophia in Genere

      Libraria Rengeriana, 1732-01-01. Hardcover. Very Good. A handsome book. 4to. [16], 866, [18] pp. 1 folding plate. 22 x 18 cm. Contemporary vellum. Excellent binding. Clean, unmarked pages. Minor toning. Latin. Christian Wolff was a Rationalist philosopher of the German Enlightenment. Wolff is regarded as the central historical figure who linked the philosophical systems of Leibniz and Kant. "According to Kant, in the "Preface" to the Critique of Pure Reason (2nd ed), Wolff is "the greatest of all dogmatic philosophers." Wolff's "strict method" in science, Kant explains, is predicated on "the regular ascertainment of principles, the clear determination of concepts, the attempt at strictness in proofs, and the prevention of audacious leaps in inferences" (Kant, 1998, 120). Like many other philosophers of the Modern period, such as Descartes, Hobbes, and Spinoza, Wolff believed the method of mathematics, if properly applied, could be used to expand other areas of human knowledge. "The influences of Wolff's systematization of philosophy include the early Kant, Alexander Baumgarten, Samuel Formey, Johann Christoph Gottsched, Martin Knutzen, Georg Friedrich Meier, and Moses Mendelssohn." (Matt Hettche, Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, 2006)

        Bibliographie instructive: ou traité de la connoissance des livres rares et singuliers.Paris, 1763-1769. 9 volumes. 8vo. Contemporary mottled calf, richly gold-tooled spines. Supplement volumes (vol. 8-9) in slighty different mottled calf with gold-tooled spines.

      Breslauer & Folter, Bibliography: its history and development, nr. 107; Balsamo, Bibliography, pp. 128-134. First edition of "the best of the eighteenth-century rare book bibliographies, important for the new classification scheme employed and for the extensive bibliographical data and notes. It is here that the Gutenberg Bible is identified and first described. De Bure was the first in a long tradition of French scholar-booksellers" (Breslauer & Folter). "The long search for a rational order and the demand for a specific professional competence, found expression in the preliminary discourse with which Guillaume-François De Bure (1732-1782) introduced his Bibliographie . ... Taking note of the different viewpoints of academics researchers and booksellers, he defined the respective environments and duties of each, comparing the "science des gens des lettres" and the "science d'un libraire", which had as its focus the typographical characteristics of the book and its commercial value, in order to meet the needs of the "amateur" and the "curieux" and to determine the prices of books" (Balsamo).Very good set, some volumes with some occasional foxing. Bindings only slightly rubbed along the extremities.

Jeder Hengst wird mit einem ausführlichen Datenblatt portraitiert, das einerseits Informationen über seine Abstammung, den Zeitraum seines züchterischen Wirkens sowie der herausragenden Nachkommen gibt. Persönliche Daten sowie eine Fotografie oder Abbildung des Hengstes runden die Angaben ab. Das Buch ist in seiner Ausführlichkeit sicherlich eine einmalige Publikation, die leider auch antiquarisch kaum mehr erhältlich ist und daher als absolutes Sammlerstück gilt.

        Recreations perspectives et essais des nouveaus cabinets des berceaus, cages, ou volieres artificieles, et attiques des jardinages . . . Perspectivische Belustigung und neue Versuche von Kleinen Lust-Hausern, wie auch allerhand Kunstlichen Vogel-Bauern samt unterschiedlichen Aufsatzen und Garten-Werck

      Nuremberg: Johann Christoph Weigels, 1732. FIRST EDITION. Contemporary red half roan, rubbed and stained; plates are bright and clean. From the library of the Mathesis Scientiarum Genitrix, Leiden. First edition of an uncommon work by the Nuremberg mathematician and architectural theorist, J.J. Schubler, presenting stunning forms of garden architecture whose different elements - archways, fountains, sundials, clocks, glockenspiel, bird cages, and topiary - are often fantastically combined. Schübler (1689-1741), born in Nuremberg, had an extremely varied career as an architect, draughtsman, mathematician, painter, and sculptor. The son of a braid and tassel maker, his prodigious talents were first recognized during his early childhood. In 1696, fire destroyed the Egidienkirche, a Romanesque cathedral in Nuremberg. Aged only seven, Schübler was then reported to have created an architecturally exact drawing of the cathedral from memory, as it had appeared before its destruction. He then received his first drawing lesson from the noted architectural painter J.A. Graff, and at age nine, became part of the atelier of Jakob von Sandrart, the founder and director of the Nuremberg Academy of Fine Arts. From 1705 to 1713, Schübler completed his education through extended travels through Europe where his interests in mathematics and physics solidified. In 1717 he was asked to build a triumphal arch in Sulzbach. Though his work was widely praised, he did not accept a royal assignment until 1741, when Schübler was asked to travel to Berlin, to work as an architect in the court of Friedrich II. Tragically, he died on 11 September of the same year, and was never able to fulfil this long-awaited role. Despite never having worked in a royal court, Schübler was extremely productive during the first half of the eighteenth century. This does not mean, however, that his work was universally well-regarded. Apparently his manner of speaking - as demonstrated in the captions to many of his prints - was decidedly baroque, which made the works 'difficult to enjoy.' Secondly, they often require a great deal of prior technical knowledge to understand. His largest and most often reproduced work was first published by Jeremias Wolff in Augsburg, before 1724. This publication, entitled Ausgab feines vorhabenden Wercks (Edition of fine intended works), presents designs for a vast array of objects, including altars, pipe organs, libraries, beds, clocks, garden gates, and fountains. The inventiveness of his later designs, such as the modern-looking projector and stove, was as much guided by contemporary scientific innovation as his architectural work was ruled by ancient mathematical principles. Though sometimes obscured by the extensive ornaments he favored, it is clear that Schübler's early interest in math and science remained firm throughout his career, enabling him to produce works that are practical as well as decorative - a perfect balance between the Late Baroque and the Age of Enlightenment.

        Le Parnasse François, dédié au Roi.

      De l'Imprimerie de Jean-Baptiste Coignard Fils, A Paris 1732 - 1 vol. in-folio de 1 frontispice gravé, (8)-672- LXXIX-(8)-XCIII-(1) pp., veau moucheté, dos orné à nerfs, tranches rouges (reliure de l'époque). Une planche gravée représentant le Parnasse français exécuté en bronze, 24 planches (médaillons et portraits), et 8 bandeaux gravés. Titon ne put faire élever ce grand monument qu'il voulait voir se dresser sur une place ou dans un jardin public. Il n'en publia que cette desciption dont la première édition (in-12) fut éditée en 1727. Evrard Titon du Tillet (1677-1762), passionné pour les lettres et les arts, conçut le plan d'un monument en l'honneur de Louis XIV et des grands hommes de son siècle qu'il fit exécuter en réduction par Louis Garnier. Le coût trop onéreux est la cause de l'abandon de ce projet. Le prototype du projet gravé par H. Tardieu, sert de frontispice. On voit au sommet du Parnasse, Louis XIV en Apollon pourvu d'une lyre ; au-dessous, les Trois Grâces sont figurées par Mmes de La Suze, des Houlières et de Scudéry ; autour du mont, à la place des Neuf Muses : Corneille, Molière, Racan, Segrais, La Fontaine, Chapelle, Racine, Boileau et Lully tenant le médaillon de Quinault. Bel exemplaire à grandes marges.

The first two volumes, which largely concern the Ottoman Empire, were first published in 1723, with a popular French translation appearing in 1727; the third volume, which concerns later travels Prussia, Russia and Poland, was originally published in French in 1732. La Mottraye (1674-1747), of Huguenot origin, began his travels in 1696 with a tour through Scandinavia. He sailed from London for Constantinople in 1698. He travelled widely in Turkey and the Levant and witnessed the Janissaries' overthrow of Sultan Mustafa II in 1703. During the Russo-Turkish War of 1710-11 he visited Charles XII of Sweden, in exile at Bender, and entered his employ. He also visited the Crimea, Circassia, and the Volga estuary. "This important work describes La Mottraye's travels over a 26-year period which took him through Northern Europe to Tartary and the Levant. The plates are of particular interest and include many signed by Hogarth which form part of his early work. They illustrate antiquities, objets d'art, and scenes from Eastern life" (Blackmer).

        An Account of the Empire of China': [from: A. and J. Churchill. A collection of voyages and travels]

      [1732], London 1732 - Navarrete, a Dominican friar, served as a missionary in China for many years and was much opposed to the Jesuits' accommodation to traditional Chinese customs in the notorious Rites Controversy. His book, a valued and sympathetic account of China, first appeared in Spanish in 1676 and became popular through much of Europe, especially among those hostile to the Jesuits (see Löwendahl 165). There was no separate English edition, but the present (abridged) translation was first published in Awnsham and John Churchill's multi-volume 'Collection of voyages' (1704). The 'Collection' was several times reprinted: from the details given by Morrison the present extract comes from the 1732 edition. Morrison I, p. 551; see Cordier BS 1945; Lust 20 A handsome copy bound in old polished calf boards, recent calf spine. Folio, pp. [iv], 380; text printed in two columns. Lacking the two plates.

        An Abridged Plan of the River Dee An Abridged Plan of the River Dee

      John Mackay jr. c.1732., [London], - The River Dee Engraved map, small hole to the right, otherwise good condition. Almost nothing is known about John Mackay beyond the small number of surveys that he completed; he was a mathematician and surveyor, with a father of the same name and profession, with whom he surveyed the Parish of St. George's Hanover Square in 1725, both describing themselves as of the Parish of St. James's Westminster. Alexander Gordon's Itinerarium Septentrionale: or, a journey thro' most of the Counties of Scotland, and those in the North of England . (London, 1726) contains a map by a John Mackay, entitled '. This Map shewing the situation of the principal Roman Camps Forts, Walls, etc. between ye River Tyne in England & the Tay in Scotland .' which might be by one of the pair.This rare chart of the mouth of the River Dee was prepared in opposition to A Bill to Recover and Preserve the Navigation of the River Dee, in the County Palatine of Chester, 11 June 1732 .; the chart marks 'Mr. Kindersley's New Channel', which crosses 'SALTNEY MARSH' from 'THE RIVER DEE' to 'CHESTER'. There is a dividing line laid across the Wirral with the note 'All on the East Side of this Line is laid down from a Draught of the River Mersey'.The proposal was for a new cut or channel to be built through Saltney Marsh, which would mean that the marine approach to Chester would follow the southern (Welsh) coast rather than the then northerly approach. It is likely that the chart was commissioned by the Chester Cheesemongers, to accompany The Case of the Cheesemongers, in and about the Cities of London and Westminster, relating to the Bill to recover and preserve the Navigation of the River Dee, in the County of Chester; the Cheesemongers conducted their trade through the port of 'PARK GATE' on the northerly approach, and they feared this route would become silted up by the new works. In this broadside, they claimed that cheese exports from Parkgate accounted for nine-tenths of Chester's exports; the lengthy explanatory text on this chart concludes:". By ye Bill depending in Parliament & ye Undertaker's protracted Survey of ye River Dee, it is evident, 1st That ye almost straight & uninterrupted Course of ye River is to be turn'd thro' an unexperienced Cutt & from thence through uncertain crooked Channels over loose shifting Sands. . Whether these ill Consequences w[hi]ch. must certainly attend the present Undertaking, are not more likely to destroy the present Navigation in Hyle Lake & the River Dee; rather than to Recover and Preserve a better, is humbly Submitted to ye Right Hon[oura]ble. the House of Lords."The opposing view was expressed in The Case of the Inhabitants of the County and City of Chester, Petitioners for the Bill to Recover and Preserve the Navigation of the River Dee; in answer to the Petition of the Cheesemongers ., and it was this view that won out. The Act was duly passed, and in 1737 a new canal, the New Cut, was completed from Chester, taking the course of the river below Chester to the Welsh side rather than English side of the estuary as before. 447 by 545mm. (17.5 by 21.5 inches). cf. Hanson, Sources of British and Irish Economic History, 4450; COPAC records only BL, Maps *1240.(10.).

Le héros, hermaphrodite, est dans une Australie peuplée d'androgynes où il n'y a pas de sexes. Les habitants de cette contrée sont gouvernés par la Raison et la Géométrie et ne connaissent pas la religion. Leur langue est d'une grande beauté ; ils ne savent pas ce qu'est la maladie, n'enfantent pas dans la douleur et ont des animaux inconnus. Et Foigny de décrire plusieurs milliers d'inventions réalisées par ces Australiens La présente édition a été donnée par l'abbé Raguenet qui en a rendu le titre plus attrayant pour les lecteurs du dix-huitième siècle. Gabriel de Foigny (1630?-1692), cordelier défroqué, abjura le catholicisme en 1666. Il se réfugia en Suisse auprès des protestants. Il devint correcteur d'imprimerie, professeur de musique et auteur d'ouvrages de pédagogie. Bel exemplaire portant au second feuillet un ex-libris manuscrit ancien, "A moy, Léopold P. de Lobenstein", rogné en pied, donc antérieur à la reliure.

Some of the Dialogues have traditional associations with various places in the neighborhood. They constitute a defense of Christianity from the point of view of an Anglican divine, though based on the philosophical beliefs defined in Berkeley's earlier works.

        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,-.

      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.
