      Printed for W. and J. Innys, London 1733 - Each volume complete with blanks and index. Volume I with 19 plates by S. Gribelin. Contemporary Cambridge-style paneled calf, gilt spines with black labels. An unusually fine and clean copy of both volumes. Volume I with contemporary signature of J. Belson? and more modern one of John Knowles; Volume II with contemporary signature of Oliver W. Casland and a later signature of John Knott, M.D., as well as bookplate of Myron Prinzmetal. First edition of both volumes. The first is Hales' classic on the physiology of plants. His many experiments with gases led him to demonstrate the dependence of plants on air. He was the first to realize that carbon dioxide was supplied to plants by air, and that it formed a vital part of the plant's food supply. He also measured the amount of water taken up by plants and the transpiration of the leaves. His investigations on the circulation of the sap in plants and on their life generally are of fundamental importance. "These experiments led the way to those of Ingenhousz and de Saussure, while his ideas on combustion and respiration facilitated the discoveries of Black, Lavoisier and Priestley" (Printing and the Mind of Man, 189a).Volume II details Hales' pioneer invention of the manometer, with which he was the first to measure blood pressure. "His work is the greatest single contribution to our knowledge of the vascular system after Harvey, and led to the development of blood-pressure measuring instruments now in universal use" (Garrison, History of Medicine, p. 322). Hales was also the first physiologist to suggest that electricity plays a role in neuromuscular phenomena. Hales (1677-1761), botanist, physiologist and chemist, was a member of the Royal Society and winner of the Copley Medal.

        Letters concerning the English Nation.

      C. David and A. Lyon, London 1733 - TP + [i]-[vii] = Preface + [viii]-[xii] = Contents + [xiii]-[xiv] = Publisher's ads + 1-253 + [254]-271] = Index, Octavo. First Edition.This is the true first edition of the work which Voltaire wrote in English. The French translation was not published until the following year of 1734. Containing Voltaire's observations on a wide variety of subjects on the English which he praises lavishly in contrast to their French counterparts. Including chapters on the Quakers and other religious issues along with his observations on government and trade, but most famous for his appraisals of Locke, Bacon, Newton (where the story of the apple makes it first appearance in print), and his disparagement of French thinkers, most especially, Descartes. A celebration of empiricism and English science. This is a famous and important book of the Enlightenment in France where it gained a wide readership and stirred up considerable resentment because of Voltaire's favorable view of the English and his disparaging comparison of them with the French. "Inspired by Voltaire's two-year stay in England (1726-8), this is one of the key works of the Enlightenment. Exactly contemporary with Gulliver's Travels and The Beggar's Opera, Voltaire's controversial pronouncements on politics, philosophy, religion, and literature have placed the Letters among the great Augustan satires. Voltaire wrote most of the book in English, in which he was fluent and witty, and it fast became a bestseller in Britain. He re-wrote it in French as the Lettres philosophiques, and current editions in English translate his French." (Nicholas Cronk, Introduction to the Oxford's Classics edition from 1999). Contemporary full paneled leather with five raised bands on the spine and the author title in gilt lettering. The joints have been professsionally reinforced. Front and rear fly leaves darkened on the edges. A very pretty copy of this important work. ADDITIONAL PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Peninsula Indiae citra Gangem, hoc est, Orae Celeberrimae Malabar & Coromandel Cum adjacente Insula non minus celebratissima Ceylon 1733 Striking Map of Southern India and Sri Lanka

      Nuremburg: Homann, Johann Baptist, 1733. unbound. Map. Copper plate engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 21 1/4" x 18 3/4 This beautiful 1733 map of Southern India and Sri Lanka or Ceylon was issued by Homann Heirs. Largely based on the cartographic work of Jean Bourcet, it covers from Daman south to include all of Sri Lanka. Mapping the region following the death of Emperor Aurangzeb and the resulting decline of the Mughal Empire, several important towns and cities are noted throughout with beautifully rendered topography noting rivers, hills, mountains, forests, and roads. Some coastal features are also noted including Adams Bank, Pearl Banks near the Pearl Fishery Coast, and others.<br><br> A curious wall appears near Mangalore. This legendary wall was featured in many maps from the period, however no trace of such a wall has been found. Flags throughtout signify British, Danish, French, Dutch, Portuguese possessions while an illustration of a map leading a camel is seen in the center of the map. An elaborate title cartouche in the lower left features an elephant surrounded by natives, goods and traders. <br><br> The map is in good condition with minor wear along the original centerfold. Original plate mark is visible. Johann Baptist Homann (1664-1724) was a renowned German mapmaker of the late 17th and early 18th century who served as geographer to the Holy Roman Emperor. His business was carried on through the 18th century by the Homann Heirs, also prolific and popular mapmakers.

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. In de haven worden de ?schatten??van de V.O.C. verzameld en worden vanuit hier 12.000 man en 50 schepen bevoorraad. 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. Batavia was voor de Hollanders de grootste stapelplaats voor koloniale waren, Waar de ruimen der schepen voor de jaarlijkse retourvloot werden volgestouwd. Vanuit Batavia vertrokken schepen op ontdekkingstochten, o.a. naar de kusten van Australi? en Nieuw-Zeeland.Johann Baptist Homann (1663-1724) en zijn zoon Christoph Homann (1703-30) richtten de belangrijkste Duitse cartografische uitgeverij van de 18e op, in Neurenberg. In 1715 kreeg Homann senior van keizer Karel de Zesde van het Heilige Roomse Rijk de titel ?Geographe du Roy??. Door deze bevoorrechte positie had Homann beschikking over veel middelen waardoor hij de meest vooruitstrevende en meest nauwkeurige kaarten van zijn tijd kon maken. Na de dood van Johann Baptist Homann in 1724 gaat zijn zoon Christoph nog vier jaar met het bedrijf door. Vervolgens draagt ook hij de zaak over en verschijnen vanaf dat moment worden alle kaarten als zijnde uitgegeven door de ?Erven Homann??.Prijs: ?1.650,- (excl. lijst, excl. BTW).

        De Palingenesia veterum seu Metempsychosi sic dicta Pythagorica Libri III. Quibus num Pythagoras Animarum humanarum de corpore uno in aliud corpus crassum vel Hominis vel Bruti Atque hinc et Carnibus et Fabis abstinuisse

      Amsterdam, Henricum Vieroot, 1733. - in-4. 16ff. 514pp. 14ff. Plein parchemin, dos lisse avec titre doré (Reliure de l'époque). Edition Originale de cet ouvrage consacré aux doctrines sur la tranmigration des âmes ou métempsychose, élaborées par les Egyptiens, les Druides, les Perses, les Indous et surtout par les Grecs à travers les thèses et l'enseignement du philosophe et matématicien Pythagore. Willem van Irhoven (1698-1760), né à Kessel, étudia à Leyde et devint professeur à Utrecht. il décrit les croyances complexes de l'Ecole de Pythagore où se mêlaient les dogmes orphiques, les traditions orientales et le sabéisme chaldéen. Il traite également du régime alimentaire végétarien ou "diète pythagoricienne" pratiqué par l'Ecole, qui excluait la consommation de viande. Curieux exemplaire dont une page de garde comporte, collée, une grande étiquette imprimée contenant un texte redigé en latin établissant un code pour le bon usage des livres empruntés. Elle a été imprimée vers le milieu du XVIIIs. mesure 15 cm. X 10cm., et porte le titre suivant : "Leges, voluminas ex Bibliotheca nostra commodato accepta, lecturis. Secundum auspicia lata Lictor Lege agito in Legirupionem. Mas vel Foemina fuas, hac tibi lege, Codicis istius usum, non interdicimus". Ce titre est suivi de 15 commandements adressés au lecteur ayant emprunté le livre, et d'où l'humour n'est parfois pas absent. Voici la traduction de quelques unes d'entre elles : n'emporte pas le livre comme si c'était une propriété; ne l'offense pas avec des annotations; ne le déchire ni ne le perfore, ce n'est pas un ennemi; ne le froisse pas; ne le prête pas, ouvertement ou en cachette; éloigne-le de l'eau, de l'huile, du feu, de la saleté; fais fuir les petits voleurs, la souris, la mite, la mouche; une fois lu ne consens pas qu'il reste longtemps avec toi; rends-le en bon état, comme tu l'as pris, etc. A la fin du texte se trouve indiqué le nom du propriétaire du volume : Thomas Vargas Macciucca, duc et chevalier de l'Ordre de Malte. L'idée originale de ces exhortations est due au savant espagnol Manuel Marti (Oropesa, 1663 - Alicante, 1737), bibliothécaire du duc de Medinaceli et bibliophile. Dans une lettre datée de 1723 adressée à son ami l'érudit Mayans y Ciscar, Marti lui communiquait le texte qu'il avait conçu "ad librorum conservationem" et que la présente étiquette reproduit fidèlement avec, comme seule différence, le nom de Thomas Vargas Macciucca remplaçant celui de Manuel Marti. Cette rarissime étiquette tend à prouver que l'initiative de Manuel Marti fut adoptée par certains collectionneurs ou bibliothécaires de son temps, qui reprirent a leur compte son texte en le faisant simplement suivre de leur propre nom. Bel exemplaire. Caillet, 5418: "Un des livres les plus documentés sur la Metempsychose". Sur l'étiquette apposée au début du volume, cf. "Correspondencia de Don Gregorio Mayans con Don Manuel Marti, Dean de Alicante, Parte I, Carta n. 31" in: Gregorio Mayans Epistolario, volumen III). [Attributes: First Edition]

        L'astrée

      Paris, P. Witte, Didot, 1733. 1733, 1733, in-12, 5 tomes en 10 volumes, reliures de l'époque en veau moucheté, dos à nerfs ornés de motifs dorés, tranches mouchetées, 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, publié l'année suivante. Les vignettes des quatre premiers tomes sont de Gravelot, celles du cinquième tome furent créées et gravées par J. Rigaud. Joli exemplaire en reliures strictement contemporaines, très bien conservé

      1733. First Edition . PARLIAMENT. Anno Regni Georgii IIÂ… Sexto [1732]Â… An Act for enabling His Majesty to applyÂ… out of the Sinking FundÂ… for establishing the Colony of Georgia in America. London: printed by John Baskett, 1733. Folio, disbound; pp. (i), 443-455 [8 leaves]. Housed in a custom cloth chemise and full morocco slipcase. $3100.The earliest official printing of the act ""for establishing the colony of Georgia in America,"" the last of the original thirteen colonies.This act authorized a grant of £10,000 ""for establishing the colony of Georgia in America, to be applied toward defraying the charges of carrying over and settling foreign and other Protestants in the said colony"" (p. 448). The creation of a haven for Protestants was, of course, an abiding interest of England; it was especially important in this case because the colony was intended to counter-balance Catholic Spain's colony in Florida. The funds were allocated to the colony's trustees, who had been given the original grant of land between the Savannah and Altamaha rivers earlier in 1732. They hoped to create a self-sufficient colony made up of compact villages and yeoman farmers. This act represents the first of many financial contributions to the trustees. The trustees soon abandoned yeomanry, however, and embraced black slavery. This act, in fact, also authorizes funding for the protection of the stations of the Royal African Company which would supply slaves (p. 451). Printed in black letter. This copy is from the Sessional Volumes of Parliament, the earliest official printings available. Acts printed prior to 1796 are extremely scarce, since the maximum number printed ""only slightly exceeded 1,100 copies,"" and those were distributed solely to Members of the Houses of Parliament, the great officers and offices of state, and the judiciary (see Report of the Committee for the Promulgation of the Statutes, 1796). Not in Sabin, Howes, Rich, Church, or Streeter. Fine condition.

        Descripcion chorographica del Terreno, Rios, Arboles y Animales de las dilatadissimas Provincias del Gran Chaco Gualamba

      1733 - The best geographical description of the Chaco Region, South of Brazil and North of Argentina. 1733. Córdoba. Colegio de la Assumpcion por Joseph Balbás. In 4to (196 mm x 142 mm). 1 [blank] + 10 ff. + 485 + 5 pp. + 1 [blank]. Contemporary vellum, spine lettered in ink, minor soiling, entirely genuine condition. A fine copy, with only minor restoration to a map tear, as often; scattered foxing. 18,000 $ Rare first edition; an uncommon production of the Jesuits posted in Paraguay. The work deals with the geography, terrain, hydrographical reality &#150;rivers and fluvial conditions-, fauna, flora &#150;specially its medicinal plants-, and inhabitants, discussing the Indian customs and missionary activities. Illustrated with a map, which covers the entirety of the Province, locating the Guarani reductions and Indian villages. The map is owed to Antonio Machoni (1671 &#150; 1753) a scholar, cartographer and Jesuit missionary. He participated in the Governor of Tucuman, Esteban de Urizar´s expedition to the Chaco in 1708; his position granted him access to Jesuit sources of information, mainly other missionary´s observations. Lozano (1697 &#150; 1752) was a Jesuit Priest, missionary, adventurer, and historian; when only 17 he travelled to Paraguay, studied at the Colegio Máximo de Córdoba, eventually teaching philosophy, theology and appointed chronicler of the Province of Paraguay of the Society of Jesus. As chronicler, Lozano authored three major works: this one, the Historia de la Compañía de Jesús en la Provincia del Paraguay, and one unpublished until the 19th century Historia de las Guerras del Paraguay. Very rare, only two copies have appeared at auction in the last 30 years. Medina, 2890. Palau, 142967. Sabin, 42598. Medina, IV, 2890. Sommervogel, V, 130. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Peninsula Indiae citra Gangem, hoc est, Orae Celeberrimae Malabar & Coromandel Cum adjacente Insula non minus celebratissima Ceylon 1733 Striking Map of Southern India and Sri Lanka

      Nuremburg: Homann, Johann Baptist, 1733. unbound. Map. Copper plate engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 21 1/4" x 18 3/4 This beautiful 1733 map of Southern India and Sri Lanka or Ceylon was issued by Homann Heirs. Largely based on the cartographic work of Jean Bourcet, it covers from Daman south to include all of Sri Lanka. Mapping the region following the death of Emperor Aurangzeb and the resulting decline of the Mughal Empire, several important towns and cities are noted throughout with beautifully rendered topography noting rivers, hills, mountains, forests, and roads. Some coastal features are also noted including Adams Bank, Pearl Banks near the Pearl Fishery Coast, and others. A curious wall appears near Mangalore. This legendary wall was featured in many maps from the period, however no trace of such a wall has been found. Flags throughtout signify British, Danish, French, Dutch, Portuguese possessions while an illustration of a map leading a camel is seen in the center of the map. An elaborate title cartouche in the lower left features an elephant surrounded by natives, goods and traders. The map is in good condition with minor wear along the original centerfold. Original plate mark is visible. Johann Baptist Homann (1664-1724) was a renowned German mapmaker of the late 17th and early 18th century who served as geographer to the Holy Roman Emperor. His business was carried on through the 18th century by the Homann Heirs, also prolific and popular mapmakers.

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 Indië 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. In de haven worden de ?schatten?'van de V.O.C. verzameld en worden vanuit hier 12.000 man en 50 schepen bevoorraad. De inwoners van de stad zijn deels Javanen, Chinezen, Maleisiërs 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. Batavia was voor de Hollanders de grootste stapelplaats voor koloniale waren, Waar de ruimen der schepen voor de jaarlijkse retourvloot werden volgestouwd. Vanuit Batavia vertrokken schepen op ontdekkingstochten, o.a. naar de kusten van Australië en Nieuw-Zeeland.Johann Baptist Homann (1663-1724) en zijn zoon Christoph Homann (1703-30) richtten de belangrijkste Duitse cartografische uitgeverij van de 18e op, in Neurenberg. In 1715 kreeg Homann senior van keizer Karel de Zesde van het Heilige Roomse Rijk de titel ?Geographe du Roy?'. Door deze bevoorrechte positie had Homann beschikking over veel middelen waardoor hij de meest vooruitstrevende en meest nauwkeurige kaarten van zijn tijd kon maken. Na de dood van Johann Baptist Homann in 1724 gaat zijn zoon Christoph nog vier jaar met het bedrijf door. Vervolgens draagt ook hij de zaak over en verschijnen vanaf dat moment worden alle kaarten als zijnde uitgegeven door de ?Erven Homann?'.Prijs: ?1.650,- (excl. lijst, excl. BTW).

        Histoire des Découvertes et Conquestes des Portugais dans le nouveau monde...

      Paris: Chez Saugrain, 1733. Two volumes, quarto, with a portrait of Prince Henry the Navigator, a fine folding world map and fifteen other plates, one folding, mainly views and town plans; a large copy in contemporary French mottled calf. First edition of this important work on Portuguese discoveries by an adventurous Jesuit missionary - the discoverer of ginseng. The foremost colonising power of Europe, Portugal was responsible for many of the discoveries in the East Indies and the Far East and Lafitau's book is an important work for this area. Lafitau was a French Jesuit priest, historian and missionary, an adventurous figure who spent many years in Canada, some of the time among the Iroquois; his experiences there formed the basis for his Moeurs des Sauvages Ameriquains, the pioneering anthropological study which influenced, among others, Rousseau and Chateaubriand and drew the vituperation of Voltaire.The insights and acumen he gained by his practical experience as a 'pioneer' were applied to this significant historical study of the grand age of Portuguese exploration. "This work is principally concerned with Portuguese voyages and explorations in the East Indies, China, Japan, and Melanesia. Many important references to Magellan are included. The introduction is an appreciation of Portuguese historians..." (Hill).
