William Cheselden
London: by the author, 1733. This copy lacks the second set of 56 plates before letters. Lacking headband. Wear to exterior hinges and a few dings to boards. A few wormholes to first several pages. See photos for best description. OSTEOGRAPHIA, OR THE ANATOMY OF THE BONES William Cheselden London: published by the author, 1733 [26] leaves. 56 plates with text on verso, an additional (unnumbered) engraving on verso of plate 56; 9 full-page engravings within text; engraved frontispiece; full-page armorial engraving; engraved head- and tail-pieces. (Folio) 20x13¼, bound in full leather with six raised bands. First Edition. "This work, with its magnificent plates depicting the human skeleton, separate and articulated, still ranks among the best osteographic atlases. It shows normal adult, fetal, and some pathological bones with great accuracy and artistry. Cheselden lost a considerable amount of money on the production of his anatomical atlas because so few copies were sold. As a result, many of the sets were broken up so the plates could be sold separately in order to reduce the amount of his losses." (Heirs of Hippocrates). This copy lacks the second set of 56 plates before letters. There are a large number of blank pages at the end of the book. This book has a complicated publishing history, due in part to Cheselden's financial difficulties mentioned above, and exists in various iterations. Wear to exterior hinges and a few dings to boards. Lacking headband. A few wormholes to first several pages. Garrison-Morton 395; Heirs of Hippocrates 814. Rare. Please email for further … [Click Below for Full Description]

NIEBUHR, Carsten.
[6], XXXXI, [1], 408, [14]; [2], VIII, [6], 484, [2]; [16], 455, [1] pp.First and only editions of the Dutch translation of a description of Arabia, Egypt and the Middle East (ad 1) and an account of a voyage to Arabia and surrounding countries (ad 2). Both works were originally written by the Danish traveller and surveyor Carsten Niebuhr (1733-1815) and published in German, in Copenhagen in 1772. Both works are lavishly illustrated, having together 2 large maps of Yemen and 148 beautifully engraved maps, plans and views of all the regions Niebuhr visited. Fine untrimmed set (giving very large margins) and bound as a matching set, with only the fore-edge of 1 folding plate slightly tattered, a small marginal tear and an occasional leaf with very minor foxing. The bindings show minor wear in the spines and a few small scuff marks on the sides, but are still very good. Lovely copy of two important and complementary works on Arabia and the Middle East, lavishly illustrated.l Hamilton, Europe and the Arab world 48; Howgego, to 1800, N24; Tiele, Bibl. 795-796.

This Dutch edition was augmented with 27 plates."Pococke travelled extensively in Europe from 1733-36 and continued on to the Levant, reaching Alexandria in September 1737. He remained three years in the Eastern Mediterranean, visiting Egypt, Palestine, Asia Minor and Greece. His book describes these journeys but not necessarily in chronological order. ... Pococke achieved a great reputation with this publication; the work was very popular during his lifetime and was praised by Gibbon" (Blackmer).A couple plates in the last volume slightly browned and a few spots on the first few leaves of the first volume, otherwise a very good copy, with the leaves nearly untrimmed. The bindings somewhat rubbed along the extremities (primarily the spines), but otherwise good.l Cox I, p. 224; Tiele, Bibl. 869; cf. Blackmer 1323 (English ed.).

MESMER, Franz Anton.
[1], [1 blank], VI, 85, [1 blank] pp.First edition of a famous (or infamous) treatise by Anton Mesmer (1733-1815) on the medical and healing use of magnetism and the healing magnetic power in his own hands, which he called “animal magnetism”. His theories gave us the English word “mesmerize”. Mesmer was an Austrian physician who believed that a magnetic fluid pervades the universe, is present in every living being and affects the nervous system. A blockage in this system, could prevent the magnetic energy from flowing throughout the body, which would provoke illnesses. Mesmer thought that he could redress the energetic imbalances with the use of magnetism.Mesmer did not produce any proof of his theory or describe his experiments so they could be scientifically replicated by others. Mesmer and his imitators relied on an extensive collection of case studies, which they used as propaganda for their theories. Mesmerism became a controversial issue that attracted a great deal of public attention. In the present pamphlet Memoire sur la découverte du magnétisme animal (1779) and another Précis historique des faits relatifs au magnétisme animal (1781), Mesmer first outlined his ideas on magnetism and especially animal magnetism with only limited polemics. The present book therefore gives Mesmer's first account of his theories.The notion that Mesmer's techniques did bring benefits due to his patients' suggestibility made Mesmer an unwitting pioneer of psychotherapy: Freud carried out his first experiments on hypnotic patients and Jung's belief that consciousness could transcend time … [Click Below for Full Description]

Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 46,3 x 54,8 cm.De tekst op de kaart vertelt onder andere dat Batavia, "in het verleden Iacarta genaamd"?, de best verdedigde stad van Indi? is en dat het verschillende belegeringen van Javaanse koningen heeft weten te weerstaan. De haven is de veiligste van de hele wereld, iedere ochtend om 10 uur staat er een noordenwind die de "chaloupen"? naar de stad brengt, iedere avond om 10 uur brengt een zuidenwind ze weer naar zee.

De inwoners van de stad zijn deels Javanen, Chinezen, Maleisi?rs en Malabaren, deels Hollanders, Fransen en Portugezen. Men spreekt er Hollands, Maleis, Portugees en Chinees. Batavia is de zetel van de generaal-stadhouder van alle Oost-Indische landen.

WILLIAM MAXWELL
WILLIAM MAXWELL (1733-1796). Maxwell, born in Ireland, was a Brigadier General in the Continental Army. He fought at Brandywine, Germantown and Monmouth, and was on the Sullivan Expedition against the Iroquois. LORD STIRLING (1726-1783). Stirling, who claimed the disputed title of Earl of Stirling, was Continental Army general during the American Revolution. He fought at Long Island, Trenton, Brandywine and Monmouth. ALS. 1pg. 6" x 7 ¼". January 20, 1779. Elizabeth [New Jersey]. A rare war-dated autograph letter signed "Wm Maxwell" to Lord Stirling: "I have had information several different weys that the new Leveys Joyned with some of the Refugees and British are either to Embarke for the West Indias or make some excursion on the main the latter is most believed. The Refugees is informed that those that will not take up arms or go on Board their Vessels must not expect any support from them. Some persons was to have gone over last night but the badness of the weather prevented. I am My Lord your Lordships Most Obedt Servt". The "main" probably refers to northern New Jersey. At the time of this letter, Maxwell and his troops were wintering in New Jersey, and the weather was absolutely brutal. The letter is hinged to another sheet and the ink is dark; the condition is very fine.

Pièces de titre en maroquin rouge et de tomaison en maroquin noir Très bel état intérieur et extérieur (excepté mouillure dans la marge à un volume). Reliures très décoratives Edition rare illustrée de 60 jolies figures hors texte de Gravelot (48) et de Rigaud (12) ; elle a été donnée et réduite par l'abbé Souchay. Dernière édition ancienne de "L'astrée", au texte rajeuni et abrégé par l'abbé Souchay. Après avoir dominé la mode littéraire du dix-septième siècle, ce roman avait perdu son attrait à cause de l'évolution du genre romanesque et des modifications intervenues dans le langage. Il ne devait plus ensuite, être réédité avant 1925. Édition d'une grande rareté, restée inconnue à Cohen et à Pereire, que Reynaud ne cite qu'avec une collation erronée, indiquant dix figures seulement. Elle date des séjours, durant la régence, en Angleterre des émules de Watteau, Rigaud et Gravelot, circonstance à laquelle est sans doute due l'unique collaboration de ces deux grands artistes. L'illustration, loin d'être innocente est de bout en bout, attachante et originale. Les soixante planches en taille-douce qui ornent l'ouvrage sont d'une fine élégance et peuvent être rapprochées des planches du Molière de Boucher. Très bel exemplaire.

LAROON, Marcellus)
Printed and Sold by Henry Overton at the White Horse without Newgate. [c.1733]. 74 fine engraved copper plates, including 2 titles, by Pierce Tempest after Marcellus Laroon. Folio. Some v. sl. foxing & occasional minor browning to margins, but a very good clean copy bound in late 18th, or early 19th, century gilt panelled calf, expertly rebacked in matching style; corners neatly repaired, some rubbing & sl. wear to board edges. Near contemporary inscription at blank head of titlepage, 'from Ja, Joye to his daughter Betty', armorial bookplate of Keane Fitzgerald. Marcellus Laroon's The Cryes of the City of London were originally published in 1687 by Pierce Tempest, and reprinted by him in 1688, 1689 and 1709. In 1711, 1713, 1731 or 1733 they were reprinted with the addition of numbers by Henry Overton. No exact date is normally attributed to this reprint as it is hard to decipher, but Overton acquired the plates from Tempest some time between 1709 and 1717. The date appears to be 1733; a James Joye is recorded as Treasurer of St Thomas's Hospital, London in 1738 & 1739. His brother Charles had previously held this position, as well as that of Treasurer of Guy's Hospital, until his death c.1737. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

BENJAMIN LINCOLN
BENJAMIN LINCOLN (1733-1810). Lincoln was a Revolutionary War general and the Secretary of War from 1781 to 1783. (SURRENDER OF CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA). On April 2, 1780, 10,000 British soldiers under the command of General Henry Clinton sieged 3,000 Continental Army soldiers at Charleston. On May 12, the over-matched forces surrendered, marking the largest Continental Army capitulation of the American Revolution. General Cornwallis was left in charge of British forces, and Lincoln was eventually traded for a British general. After the Charleston surrender, a guerilla war broke out in South Carolina. When the British surrendered at Yorktown, Benjamin Lincoln was there to accept Cornwallis's sword. D. 2pg. 8" x 10". 1780. Charleston [South Carolina].

Relaçaõ, e descripçaõ de Guiné na qual se trata das varias naçoens de negros, que a povoaõ, dos seus costumes, leys, ritos, ceremonias, guerras, armas, trajos, da qualidade dos portos, e do commercio, que nelles se faz.Lisbon, Miguel Rodrigues, 1733. 4to. With a woodcut decoration on the title-page, headpieces and a large tailpiece.Modern decorated paper covers. [4], 62 pp. First edition of a very rare, important early description of West Africa, and the Guinea region in particular. The author, André Alvares de Almada (ca. 1550?-post 1598), was a Cape Verdean traveller in the late 16th century who rose to the highest ranks in the Portuguese navy despite being of a mixed (mestizo) background. His reports on the region in the present work date back to 1570. It is probably the best, most detailed and most original description from the early modern period of the peoples that inhabited the region from present day Senegal to Sierra Leone, paying special attention to the geographic dispersion of the different groups of peoples and their political-social organization. This makes Almada's report an extremely rare and vital record of the Islamic population in this area, now its predominant population. Vitorino José da Costa acquired the ca. 1594 manuscript and initiated its edited publication in the present 1733 edition.Some minor foxing, otherwise in very good condition.

LAKENMAN, Seger.
Ontwerp van een onkostbaar en zeker middel, om de Westvriesche zeedyken... te stellen buiten eenig gevaar van doorbrake...Amsterdam, heirs of Johannes Ratelband and company and Hendrik de Leth, 1733. Folio. With 2 folding engraved plates, including a map of North-Holland. Contemporary marbled paper wrappers, preserved in a blue cloth chemise. [4], 23, [1] pp. First and only edition of a brief treatise by Seger Lakenman on reinforcing the dikes of West-Friesland, now the northern part of the province of North Holland in the Netherlands. The dikes were dangerously weakened because "sea worms" were voraciously eating their wooden piles. In 1732 the States of Holland and West-Friesland proclaimed a contest for a better type of dike. Lakenman responded with the present work, suggesting, among other things, the construction of a new inner dike, a so-called "inlaagdijk", and also including the estimated costs. His proposal, however, was rejected by the States. On the title-page Lakenveld is mentioned as the secretary of "Drechterland", a small community in the Dutch province of North Holland.Some marginal thumbing, a few small stains, and the plates very slightly browned, but otherwise in good condition, with the edges wholly untrimmed. Edges of the marbled paper wrappers slightly frayed, but otherwise good. V.d. Aa XI, pp. 40-41; STCN 184404789.

With 13 engraved plates (of which 8 folding), and 1 folding table. Early 19th-century red half morocco. [20], 212, [18] pp. Re-issue of the rare Latin translation first published in Utrecht by Meinardus van Dreunen in 1684, of Swammerdam's famous work on the metamorphosis of insects. Since Aristotle, the theory on insects was based on three suppositions, insects lack internal anatomy, they originate by spontaneous generation and they develop by metamorphosis. The idea of metamorphosis was that a sudden and total change from one kind of creature into another, comparable to the alchemical transmutation of a base metal into gold. Swammerdam's thesis was fundamentally new and significant. He believed all three suppositions to be false and devoted a wide variety of investigations to refute these ideas. Plates a bit browned. Good copy. MC NH, p. 2055; Hagen II, p. 209; Horn & Schenkling 21795; Nissen, ZBI 4053; STCN (6 copies); for the author: DSB XIII, pp. 168-175.

Châtre de Cangé DE BILLY, Jean-Pierre-Imbert
Paris: Jacques Guerin, 1733. Not a Library, but a Cabinet of BooksThis remarkable collection, rich in poetry, chivalric romances, history, military manuals, and music, contained some 7000 volumes. In the prefatory Avertissement, the compiler of the catalogue, Claude Gros de Boze, distinguishes between a bibliothèque and a cabinet de livres, remarking that the former is simply a hoard of volumes amassed without discretion, and the latter a highly selective and consonant collection of works assembled according to scholarship, taste, and rarity. Needless to say, Cangé's books formed a cabinet, and de Boze expresses his hope, and by extension Cangé's, that the books ultimately descend en bloc to a deserving owner, without suffering the indignity of dismemberment and dispersal. Indeed, the cabinet was acquired by the Bibliothèque Royale for 40,000 livres shortly after the anonymized catalogue was published in July 1733. Following the sale, which occurred on the 30th of that month, the catalogue was reissued with a cancellans title, naming Cangé as the consignor; the present work is the reissue, with both title pages present, an additional twelve-page subject directory, as well as the sometimes-wanting leaf at the end of the volume listing 18 manuscripts that were not included in the catalogue but which Cangé gave to the King. Roughly 1300 volumes in the cabinet proved to be duplicates; these were sold to a bookseller for 11,000 livres; this in turn was used to pay part of the debt to Cangé.

Richard Hammond (1692-1773) was a shoemaker known locally as a "staunch churchman with anti-nonconformist sentiments" and amateur florist specialising in the propagation of carnations. His leading role in local floristry is exemplified in his hosting a "Meeting of Florists" on 30 July 1734 at a pub called the Crown in his hometown of Coddenham, one of many 'Florist Feasts' held in the county which combined showcas … [Click Below for Full Description]

PHILIP SCHUYLER
PHILIP SCHUYLER (1733-1804). Schuyler was an New York landowner and delegate to the Continental Congress. He was appointed a major general and Washington put him in command of the Northern Department. He was blamed for the British capture of Fort Ticonderoga and was replaced by Horatio Gates. He was one of New York’s first Senators and negotiated treaties with the Iroquois Confederacy. ALS. 2pg. 6 ½” x 8”. April 15, 1798. No place. An autograph letter signed “Ph: Schuyler” to his son Philip Jeremiah Schuyler. The general wrote: “My dear child, As I cannot find my copy of the little essay on surveying you have probably taken it by mistake. It so return it by some safe hands. The publication of the dispatches from our envoys to France, I trust we’ll have extensive tendency to prevent the chancellors views but he ought not to rely on any thing…I hope you, Mr. Swords and other friends will not be remiss on the present session. I am persuaded we shall do well on this quarrel…your Mama & sisters are well and I am sure in love to you to Sally & the children. Your sister Margaret embarks for New York tomorrow, the Lieut Governor remains until after the election. Adieu my dear child…Ph: Schuyler”. The letter has mailing folds and the address panel is separated from the letter. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
