        Letters Concerning the English Nation

      London: Printed for C. Davis and A. Lyon, 1733, 1733. First edition. Cf. Bengeso 1558; Sabin 100751 (noting Voltaire's letters on William Penn and the Pennsylvania Quakers). Fine copy.. 8vo, contemporary paneled calf (hinges skillfully repaired). The first appearance an early and important prose work by Voltaire, a series of epistlotary observations comparing British and French society, culture, science and philosophy. Written when he was living in England (1727-28), Voltaire's opinions shed a favorable light on British institutions and individuals, including Sir Isaac Newton. Voltaire tells an early version of the apple falling from the tree story that inspired Newton's theory of gravity. When Letters was published on the continent as Lettres Philosophiques (1734), it was condemned by French authorities and precipitated one of Voltaire's many conflicts with the crown.

        Pharmacopoeia Officinalis & Extemporanea. Or, A Complete English Dispensatory, In Four Parts... The Ninth Edition, much enlarged and corrected.

      Thick 8vo. London: J. Osborn and T. Longman, 1733. Thick 8vo, xvi, 700, lx (index) pages. Original calf, final two leaves creased, lacking rear free end-paper. William Blake's copy, signed by him on the title-page "William Blake his Book" in brown ink. The signature corresponds almost exactly with the example reproduced by Bentley in Blake Book Supplement, facing p. 314. Blake has also noted the price at the front on the free end-paper. Although only a couple of pages bear markings in ink (underlinings, not writings), over twenty leaves are folded down to emphatically mark those pages, and numerous other leaves are less obviously dog-eared. Whether or not these markings were made by Blake is unknown, but a relationship between the state of his health and the passages marked, however conjectural, might be illuminating. Of especial interest is the fact that the one underlined remedy in the entire book is for itching skin and skin disease. Ackroyd (p. 273) notes that Blake suffered from a nervous skin condition called 'the Erisepilas.' Books owned by Blake are extremely rare. Bentley lists 43 in Blake Books and four in the supplement, of which 24 are untraced and known only by repute, and of the remaining 23 only seven are signed by Blake and some of those are dubious. There are perhaps twelve books in all that were almost certainly once in Blake's possession and of these seven were signed by Blake. Of these twelve, seven belonged to Keynes (three signed) and are now at Cambridge, two are at Harvard (both signed), one each at the Morgan (signed), Huntington (signed) and BL. In the supplement to Blake Books, Bentley notes that Michael Phillips and an anonymous owner have a further two or possibly three books that may have belonged to Blake though there appears to be some doubt about that. Essick and Bentley do not note any copy signed by Blake at auction or through the trade this century apart from the Keynes examples. Both Professors Essick and Bentley agree that this copy belonged to Blake. Essick especially points to the signature in Island in the Moon reproduced by Bindman in the Fitzwilliam Catalogue and the title-page reproduced in Bentley's Blake Books supplement as convincing evidence. The signature is closest to examples of his earliest handwriting and less like examples of his later hand.

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).

        Historia des Yncas Rois du Peru ... on a joint a cette edition L'Histoire de la conquete de la Florida

      Amsterdam: Jean Frederic Bernard, 1733 2 volumes. [xxxvi]+540+[15 index] pages with title in red and black, frontispiece and ten additional plates, one folding map and index; xxiii+373+[iv] pages with title in red and black, five plates with one folding and two folding maps. Royal octavo (9 3/4" x 7 1/2") bound in contemporary calf with six raised spine bands with black and red labels in three compartment lettered in gilt, half titles in both volumes. (Palau 85403; Sabin 98752). Provence The Explorers Club Collection. This French translation of Vega is noted for its fine plates after Picart and includes maps of the Mississippi region with Hennepin's Discovery of a Country greater than Eyurope, Florida and northern New Spain, later Texas.This two volume set contains two of his most famous works. In volume one the Comentarios Reales de los Incas (part 1: 1609; part 2, the Historia General del Peru was published posthumously in 1617). In volume two La Florida del Inca was published in Lisbon (1605).Garcilaso de la Vega, the "Inca," was born Gomez Suarez de Figueroa in Cuzco on April 12th, 1539. His father was the prominent conquistador captain Sebastian Garcilaso de la Vega y Vargas. His mother was Isabel Suarez Chimpu Ocllo, niece of Inca Huaina Capac and concubine to the Spanish captain. Her status as Inca princess and mother of his first-born son did not prevent Sebastian Garcilaso from later marrying a well-born Spanish woman (dona Luisa Martel, who was only four years older than Gomez) and marrying Isabel off to a commoner (Juan del Pedroche). Their son was thus one of the first Peruvian mestizos, and both sides of the family took care to ensure that he was exposed to the traditions of their respective cultures. He learned first Quechua and then Spanish before embarking on an elementary study of Latin in Cuzco. The first volume of this history recounts the origins and rise of the Inca empire, using accounts sent by native friends in Peru as well as Garcilaso's own childhood memories which were filled with stories handed down by Inca relatives. Again, the overall impression conveyed by the work is that the Incas ruled their realm wisely and well, on the classical model of pagan Rome. Their only real flaw was their unwitting idolatry, and Garcilaso lauded Spanish attempts at proselytization. His message, however, was clear: the Incas were a noble people deserving to be treated with respect and perhaps allowed a role in the governance of their own territories. With the publication of the Florida, Garcilaso's attention returned to the New World. For years he had collaborated with Gonzalo Silvestre, a survivor of de Soto's expedition to what are now the southeastern United States, to give an epic account of that voyage. Garcilaso's narrative used classical allusions to at once make the conquistadors into heroic figures and depict the Indians as noble pagans analogous to the ancient Romans and Greeks.The Explorers Club is an American-based international multidisciplinary professional society with the goal of promoting scientific exploration and field study. The club was founded in New York City, and has served as a meeting point for explorers and scientists worldwide. In 1904, a group of men active in exploration met at the request of Henry Collins Walsh, to form an organization to unite explorers in the bonds of good fellowship and to promote the work of exploration by every means in its power. Among these men were Adolphus Greely, Donaldson Smith, Henry Collins Walsh, Carl Lumholtz, Marshall Saville, Frederick Dellenbaugh, and David Brainard. After several further informal meetings, The Explorers Club was incorporated on October 25, 1905. Women were first admitted in 1981, with a class including Sylvia Earle and Kathryn Sullivan.Condition:Explorers Club book plate to front pastedowns, bind-stamps to titles, maps and occasionally elsewhere, in numerals to first leaf of text, faint damp stain to upper margin of volume two, some wear to joints and rubbing to extremities else a very good set.

        Carte Particulére de Amerique Septrionale. A Map of the British Empire In America with the French, Spanish and the Dutch Settlements adjacent thereto by Henry Popple.

      Americas: Amsterdam. Covens et Mortier c1741. Copper engraved map from Covens & Mortier's " Nieuwe Atlas, Inhoudennde vier Gedeeltens der Waereld.. " Original full wash colour; verso blank. Covens and Mortier edition of the key sheet to Popple's 20 sheet map with inset views of New York, Quebec, Mexico City and the Niagara Falls [black& white as issued] 18 coloured inset plans of ports and islands.[ see item 3062] Black & white title cartouche as issued. To lower right corner is the "the Approbation of the Right Honourable the Lords Commissioners of Trade and Plantations," Popple's map had quasi-official status, and a copy was sent to each of the governments of each of the colonies and the approbation of Edmund Halley: "I have seen the abovementioned Map, which as far as I am Judge, seems to have been laid down with great Accuracy, and to shew the Position of the different Provinces & Islands in that Part of the Globe more truly than any yet extant." Popple's famous map on 20 sheets appeared 1733 Popple drew on many sources: the maps of Guillaume De L'Isle and Nicholas de Fer; John Barnwell's manuscript map of the south-eastern colonies of circa 1721 which included up-to-date information on the Indian settlements in the interior; and Cadwallader Colden's famous Map of the Country of the Five Nations. In all, it covers from the Grand Banks off Newfoundland to about ten degrees west of Lake Superior, and from the Great Lakes to the north coast of South America. Several of the sections are illustrated with pictorial insets, including views of New York City, Niagara Falls, Mexico City, and Quebec, and inset maps of Boston, Charles-Town, Providence and Bermuda. Benjamin Franklin ordered two of the original map for the Pennsylvania Assembly on 22 May 1746, "one bound and the other in sheets." One of these was hanging in the Pennsylvania State House when the Declaration of Independence was signed on July 4th, 1776. John Adams noted that Popple's map was "the largest I ever saw, and the most distinct." Copies were found in the private collections of several of the wealthier founding fathers, including George Washington. Dark impression; bright full wash colour; printed on heavy paper; light soiling; old red crayon numbers to verso. Covens & Mortier as a firm existed between 1721-1778, taking over the business of Pierrre Mortier. Johannes / Jean Covens and Cornelius Mortier were brothers- in- law following the former's marriage to Mortier's sister Agatha in 1721, when they also formally went in to partnership. Under the Covens and Mortier imprint, Cornelius and Jean republished the works of the great 17th and early 18th century Dutch and French cartographers De L'Isle, Allard, Jansson, & De Wit. The firm would become one of the most prolific Dutch publishing concerns of the 18th century. The company would pass down through the Covens family as Mortier had no children, changing the name to Covens & Zoon until Pieter Mortier IV a great grandson of the original founder joined the firm and saw the name restored to Mortier Covens & Zoon. ( See Koeman I p45). Henry Popple (16?? - 1743) was a British cartographer active in the early part of the 18th century. Popple was a clerk with the Board of Trade and Plantations, the organization that governed Britain's colonies in America. With his father, grandfather, and brother all being employed the board of trade, the Popple family had a long history of association with the British colonial administration. Popple received his commission as a clerk at the board of trade in 1727, but resigned in the same year to take a position as the Cashier to Queen Anne. In 1730, the Board began requesting detailed maps of the entirety of the provinces and contiguous French and Spanish Dominions. Popple had begun work on the map in 1727. He continued to work on his great maps and a manuscript version of the Popple Map appeared in this very year. Popple issued an announcement for the map in 1731, but did not complete work until 1733. as he continued to update and refine the map. The Board of trade intended the Popple map to be a British response to Delisle's French mapping of North America, which presented boundaries that conflicted with British colonial ambitions. However, since Popple in fact based much of his map on Delisle's superior cartography, he also managed to copy many of the French political boundaries - to the detriment of the Board of Trade and its expansionist intentions. Although Popple's map was never approved by the Board, examples were rushed to each colonial governor and the map played a significant role in the cartographic history of North America. Popple cartographic endeavor began and ended with this singular map however, it significance was such that he must be considered in any list of significant British mapmakers. The large scale map was not a commercial success and did not sell well until after William Henry Toms and Samuel Harding took over publication in 1739. With the outbreak of the War of Jenkin's Ear, the map saw its commercial successes soar. In 1746, the rights to the map passed to Willdey and Austen, who published it until Austen's death in 1750. Various other printers produced versions of the map in smaller format of which the Covens and Mortier version is undoubtedly the most fine.

      London: Printed for W. and J. Innys, 1733. FIRST EDITIONS. 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.

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

        Anno Regni Georgii II

      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]
