        Thirteen proof impressions of woodcuts for an almanac (Étrennes spirituelles dedié [sic] a M Le Dauphin)

      [Paris], 1733. Thirteen small woodcuts: a frontispiece or title cut and 12 calendar woodcuts, the title cut 98 x 50 mm., the others approx. 88 x 50 mm., mounted on a single folio sheet of laid paper watermarked J[?] Maillet (folded vertically), 5 of the calendar cuts signed in the block Papillon f. or Papillon inv. et fecit, one signed P., the last cut also dated 1733. Each of the calendar cuts bears 2 or 3 small manuscript paper labels pasted above and below, indicating respectively the month and the subject. Flanking the title cut are manuscript notes in an 18th-century hand attributing the label inscriptions to Papillon. A few small tears and creases to mount sheet, not affecting the woodcuts, three of the label inscriptions faded. Provenance: from the library of Jean Viardot.*** Original proof impressions of woodcuts by Jean-Michel Papillon for a suite of full-page almanac illustrations, with the artist's manuscript notes. The crisp impressions of these woodcut proofs, which are so fine that they resemble wood engravings or even etchings, reveal Papillon's exceptional skill with the knife and gouge; and they are masterfully printed, reflecting his attempts to elevate the neglected art of the woodcut to the status it had possessed before being eclipsed by intaglio methods in the seventeenth century. The suite was evidently cut in the early 1730s. The last calendar woodcut, for December, is dated 1733. An anonymous annotator inscribed the title Les Douze Mois below the title cut, and attributed the proofs and manuscript labels to Papillon: "Epreuves d'artiste d'un charmant petit volume paru en 1733 ou 1734 ayant appartenu à Papillon. Les annotations manuscrites sont de la main de Papillon le dessinateur graveur." The almanac's title Étrennes spirituelles [etc.] is printed typographically within a cartouche of the frontispiece below the arms of the Dauphin held aloft by a pair of angels, with two dolphins at the foot; in the upper half of the cut the royal family is shown in an elegant room with a large window looking out onto a terrace and a distant garden; at center one of the boys (or the miniature author) presents a book to another, presumably the Dauphin (Louis, 1729-1765), the dedicatee. The calendar woodcuts break with traditional iconography: instead of the usual scenes of agricultural labors used to illustrate almanac calendars, these delicate woodcuts depict scenes of pleasure, of country folk but also of the aristocracy. January shows a rowdy Epiphany feast (label: "La criée du roi boit"); February shows Carnival, with musicians and dancing, in a vast avenue under cloudy skies; March depicts another street party, for the ancient festival the Mi-Carême; April, labeled "Spring," shows a magnificent chateau garden on a river, with gardeners in the foreground and middle ground; May shows an aristocratic pleasure party on the grounds of another palace, looming in the distance; June the preparation of a tall tree for the fire of St. John's Eve (Le feu de la St. Jean); July, labeled simply "Summer," is a night scene with fireworks above pleasure boats and a pavilion on an island, with a dark crowd of onlookers silhouetted in the foreground; August, labeled Harvest, may have been inspired by Pieter Bruegel; September shows the festivities for the Birth of the Dauphin (born September 1729); October, labeled "Autumn," shows the vendange (wine harvest), November a hunting scene ("La chasse de St. Hubert"); and December ('Winter") a skating party. Each scene is given exceptional depth by finely cut distant vistas; all incorporate piquant details of everyday life. These scenes adhere closely to Papillon's recommendations for innovative subjects for almanac illustrations, in his Traité historique et pratique de la gravure sur bois (1766, II:337-338): "Jusqu'à présent dans les almanachs communs de Province & des Pais Etrangers, on a représenté les mois par l'ouvrage qui se fait en campagne dans chacun, tant pour le labourage que pour la coupe des bois, les moissons, la cueille des fruits, la vendange, la tonte des brebis, le tuage des cochons, &c. ... L'on peut encore, comme j'ai fait dans des ouvrages que je vais indiquer, orner la décoration des mois par les fêtes de réjouissances & les actions celebres & publiques qui se font dans quelques-uns, comme la criée du roi boit, les réjouissances du carnaval, les bals, le feu d'artifice de la Saint Jean, le concert des Tuileries la veille de la Saint Louis, la Saint Martin, la rentrée du Parlement, &c." (The ouvrages indiqués to which Papillon refers are suites in the BnF album [see below], which he calls the "Recueil Papillon.") Papillon's manuscript label notes to May and August include remarks on the engraving technique, in which elements of the foreground were highlighted with deeper wider strokes: "Premier essai de tailles grossies fait à cette planche au figure sur le devant" (May), and "Second essai de taille grossie fait à la piece de bled [wheat] sur le devant" (August). Guadriault (Filigranes, p. 238) records a Jean Maillet, paper merchant in Troyes, active in 1653. Papillon illustrated other almanacs: Cohen and de Ricci (col. 64-65) cite the Petit almanach de Paris, which began publication in 1727; but I locate no copies of a 1733/34 or earler edition under the title Étrennes spirituelles. The earliest issue listed in OCLC is a 1738 edition with the title Étrennes spirituelles présentées a Mgr. le Dauphin, published by de Hansy. According to the BnF entry, the almanac was continued after 1742 under the title Étrennes spirituelles dédiées aux dames, but the BnF holds later de Hansy editions, in the 1760s and 1778, under either the title Etrennes spirituelles, etc., or Nouvelles étrennes spirituelles dédiées a Monseigneur le Dauphin. A very battered impression of the frontispiece appears in the 1778 edition of the Nouvelles étrennes spirituelles (of which I have a copy); it was presumably used as well in the earlier issues or editions. The woodcuts illustrating the 1778 edition do not include the present calendar cuts. A four-volume collection of print proofs which Papillon gave to the Cabinet des Estampes of the BnF (the "Receuil Papillon") may contain a copy of this suite. Houghton Library holds a copy (without manuscript labels), on ff. 57 and 58 in an album of mounted proof impressions of woodcuts by Papillon (Houghton Typ 715.60.673). At the head of the Houghton album is a manuscript note in which Papillon describes pasting down proofs of all of his woodcuts himself: "Je certifie que le present Recueil de Graveures, est le plus complet apres celui de la Bibliotheque du Roy; que c'est un present que j'ay fait a Monsieur P.G. Simon imprimeur du Parlement en l'année 1760. Et que je les ay toutes coleés moy mesme; et que j'ay tousjours continué de coller toutes les Pieces que j'ay gravé depuis, fait a Paris le 20 janvier 1775..." (transcription from Harvard Library Catalogue; thanks to Hope Mayo for examining the proofs).

        L'astrée

      Paris, P. Witte, Didot, 1733. 5 tomes en 10 volumes reliures de l'époque en veau moucheté, dos à nerfs ornés de motifs dorés, tranches mouchetées 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

        Le faux Aristarque reconnu, ou lettres critiques sur le dictionnaire néologique , Pantalon - Phoebus , le discours de Mathanasius , les voyages des deux Gulliver... de l'abbé Desfontaines/ Anecdotes grecques, ou aventures secrètes d'Aridée

Aneddoti greci sembrano scarse, abbiamo trovato solo una copia in possesso della British Library. Tempo di ghiaccio vitello maculato pieno, di nuovo lavorata in rilievo. Parte del titolo in marocchino rosso. Una libreria di tag sul coperchio testa. I vari attriti, 2 angoli urtato. Il termine di Aristarco (considerato l'inventore della critica nel IV secolo aC) designato sotto il vecchio regime giudizioso e informato critica. Il libro è (epigrammi fuori da Voltaire), uno dei testi più accesi scritti contro Padre Desfontaine, In queste "lettere critiche", l'autore cerca di esporre in dettaglio gli errori, le improbabilità e barbarie Desfontaines. L '"Avviso" dà il tono: Pitaval gli nega quasi tutti originali, e denuncia "Il plagio dell'Abate Desfontaines che assegna libri che non sono nati da suo cervello." Il dizionario non lo è neologica e "i plagiatori dio Mercurio è il suo capo. "Non più la definizione di Gulliver. Il campione è rappresentativo Pitaval: attacchi contro la critica letteraria Desfontaines spesso vanno di pari passo con l'accusa di plagio. I critici continuano questi attacchi dopo la morte di Desfontaines, seppellendo le pratiche di un antico critica diffusa nel XVII e XVIII e promuovere lo sviluppo di una nuova e vera critica. Storie greche sono un romanzo storico sul fratello di Alessandro Magno. Abbiamo trovato sotto il nome Aridée la British Library, anche se questo nome è anche quello dell'eroe. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Editions originales de ces deux livres. Les anecdotes grecques paraissent rares, nous n'en avons trouvé qu'un seul exemplaire détenu par la British Library. Reliure en plein veau glacé moucheté d'époque, dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Une étiquette de bibliothèque sur la coiffe de tête. Frottements divers, 2 coins émoussés. Le terme d'Aristarque (considéré comme l'inventeur de la critique au Ive siècle avant J. C.) désignait sous l'ancien régime le critique judicieux et éclairé. L'ouvrage constitue (en dehors des épigrammes de Voltaire) l'un des textes les plus virulents écrit contre l'abbé Desfontaine, Dans ces « lettres critiques », l'auteur s'attache à dénoncer en détail les erreurs, invraisemblances et barbarismes de Desfontaines. L'« Avertissement » donne le ton : Pitaval lui dénie presque toute œuvre originale, et dénonce « Le plagiarisme de l'Abbé Desfontaines qui s'attribuë des Livres qui ne sont pas éclos de son cerveau ». Le Dictionnaire néologique ne serait pas de lui et « Mercure le Dieu des Plagiaires est son patron. » non plus que la traduction de Gulliver. L'exemple de Pitaval est représentatif : les attaques contre la critique littéraire de Desfontaines vont souvent de pair avec l'accusation de plagiat. Les critiques poursuivront ces attaques après la mort de Desfontaines, enterrant les pratiques d'une ancienne critique très répandue au XVII et au XVIIIe et favorisant l'essor d'une nouvelle et vraie critique. Les anecdotes grecques sont un roman historique sur le frère d'Alexandre le Grand. Nous l'avons trouvé sous le nom d'Aridée à la British Library, bien que ce nom soit aussi celui du héros.

L'opera fu eseguita nel 1733 per Giuseppe Custoza. La Famiglia Custoza, di origine vicentina, trae il nome dall'omonimo castello. Iscritta nel 1583 tra i nobili del Consiglio di Vicenza, un suo ramo si stabilì nel XVII sec. a Mantova. Nel 1688 l'Imperatore Leopoldo le conferì la nobiltà imperiale e Ferdinando Carlo Gonzaga, Duca di Mantova, le concesse il titolo comitale. Manca alla compilazione il vol. Settimo (quinto per il presente volume), poiché, come specificato, non esiste nell'originale. I libri I - IV dell'opera trattano delle gabelle comunali, della vendita delle merci, delle arti e mestieri, dell'ordine e pulizia della città e dell'istituzione in essa di chiese e cimiteri e dell'elezione degli ufficiali. Il quinto libro non è presente nell'originale. I libri VI - VIII concernono i ponti e le strade, i notai e i cambi, la proibizione di mutare nome e cognome, i modi e forme delle bollette e le norme per gli uffici pubblici. Il libro IX è di particolare interesse per l'estesa elencazione delle norme promulgate contro gli eretici a partire dalla lettera del 1252 di papa Innocenzo IV e proseguendo con le leggi papali e imperiali con i relativi provvedimenti (Heretici puniantur, Hereticis capiendis, Hereticis exterminandis, Heretici capiti examinentur, Destructione domorum, etc.). Nelle bibliografie consultate non viene dato cenno di un capitolo così dettagliato (68 richiami nell'indice per i vari articoli). Il libro X concerne la divisione della città in quartieri, la macina e la caccia, oltre a riportare il rescritto di Carlo VI del 10 novembre 1715 sulle regole per l'amministrazione della giustizia. Cfr.codice simile in Cat. Senato, IV, 196 - 198.

Wellcome II p.339. Hunter & Macalpine p.351. 'Cheyne (1671-1743) attributed hypochondria ('Cheyne's disease') to the moisture of the air and variability of the weather in the British Isles. Cheyne himself suffered from this disease and the work includes a careful account of his own case history'. [Garrison & Morton, p.745]. 'The title I have chosen for this treatise', writes Cheyne in his Preface, 'is a reproach universally thrown on this island by foreigners, and all our neighbours on the continent, by whom nervous distempers, spleen, vapours, and lowness of spirits, are in derision, called the English Malady. And I wish there were not so good grounds for this reflection. The moisture of our air, the variableness of our weather, (from our situation amidst the ocean) the rankness and fertility of our soil, the richness and heaviness of our food, the wealth and abundance of the inhabitants (from their universal trade) the inactivity and sedentary occupations of the better sort (among whom this evil mostly rages) and the humour of living in a great, populous and consequently unhealthy towns, have brought forth a class and set of distempers, with atrocious and frightful symptoms, scarce known to our ancestors, and never rising to such fatal heights, nor afflicting such numbers in any other known nation. These nervous disorders being computed to make almost one third of the complaints of the people of condition in England ....'. [see Hunter & Macalpine pp.351-3].

        Magna Carta.

      London: , 1733. By Permission of Â… the Trustees of the Cottonian Library. This Plate being a Correct Copy of King John's Great CharterÂ… Engraved facsimile printed on vellum (700 × 480 mm), central panel of text surrounded by the 25 coats-of-arms of the Barons, hand-coloured, and a similar representation of the remains of King John's Great Seal, all panels enclosed by hand-coloured oak leaf and acorn borders. Recently float-mounted, framed and glazed, conservation mountboard, UV resistant glass, ebonized and gilt frame. A little cockled, old tack holes rusted through at the margins, bottom edge a little damp-stained, colour faded, remains about very good. First impression, printed on vellum, of this meticulously engraved facsimile of the Magna Carta, "a sacred text, the nearest approach to an irrepealable "fundamental statute" that England has ever had" (Pollock and Maitland, History of English Law, I, p.173). The work of the John Pine (1690-1756) engraver, publisher, print- and mapseller, Bluemantle Pursuivant at the College of Arms, and Engraver to the King's Signet and Stamp Office, this facsimile was made from one of the Cottonian library copies and heraldically embellished by him with the arms of the rebellious barons. Perhaps the most-celebrated legal document of the English-speaking world, Churchill declaring of it; "Here is a law which is above the King and which even he must not break. This reaffirmation of a supreme law and its expression in a general charter is the great work of Magna Carta; and this alone justifies the respect in which men have held it" (History of the English-speaking Peoples, I, p. 257).

Sa notoriété fut véritablement européenne. Pour Folard, la colonne est formée d'un à six bataillons à la queue les uns des autres. Le front doit osciller entre vingt-quatre et trente files en terrain ouvert. La colonne doit compter sur le choc plus que sur le feu. Elle doit aborder l'ennemi à l'arme blanche, ce qui convient mieux à la nation française qu'à nulle autre, estime Folard » (L'Art de la guerre de Machiavel à Clausewitz).

Number of Volumes: [1733-1734]. Bound in late-XIXc (?) crushed green morocco, re-backed with crushed blue morocco. Double gilt-fillet border, double gilt-fillet on edges of covers, gilt inside dentelle. Six raised bands with gilt vertical strokes. In the panels, triple gilt border top-and-bottom, outermost leaves, and gilt flower central ornament. Title gilt in second panel. All edges gilt. Presented in a custom slip-case with chemise. Slight wear to fore-corners. Re-backed. Nick to rear cover. Mild tanning to periphery of end-papers. First item with residual transverse crease at middle. Paper unusually bright, almost entirely devoid of foxing. A fine copy. Book-plate of Alfred Edward Newton on front paste-down. Presented with additional materials: 1. Typed letter on Newton’s headed paper, signed; most amusing. 2. A clipped bibliographic description of the item (before its repair but after the Newton sale, largely verbatim from that sale’s catalogue) –but from what catalogue? 3. An invoice from Dauber & Pine Bookshops, dated 10/5/37, for the purchase of a different item, but presumably belonging to a previous owner of the book:Martin J. Keogh Jr., one of the first captains in the Air Force and a lawyer living on the Upper East Side of New York. 4. A folded but unbound pamphlet of 12 leaves, with bibliographic descriptions of the items, typed with some manuscript corrections and additions. The pamphlet claims that the item has been collated with the Ashley Library Catalogue, Volume 4. Pope’s great optimistic-philosophical didactic poem An Essay on Man was widely admired and emulated throughout Europe; Voltaire, Rousseau and Leibniz are among its admirers (although the former two later renounced it). In it, the great translator of Homer explores the relation of man to the divine. In it are some of the most quoted and cited lines in English; to wit: "Know then Thy-self, presume not God to scan;The only Science of Mankind is Man.Plac’d on this Isthmus of a Middle State,A Being darkly wise, and rudely great:With to much knowledge for the Sceptic Side,With too much Weakness for a Stoic’s Pride, / He hangs between; in doubt to act, or rest, / To deem himself a Part of God, or Beast; / In doubt, his Mind or Body to prefer, / Born but to die, and reas’ning but to err; / Alike in Ignorance, his reason such, / Whether he thinks to little, or too much." (Epistle II, vss. 1-11; 3B1r-v.) The printing history of the Essay is contorted, and Griffith’s bibliography, now nearing one hundred, is still the authority on it. The five items bound up in the present volume chart this publication history closely (perhaps why Newton purchased it). The poem’s first part (not yet called an epistle though it is one), is Griffith’s issue B, which was simply the ordinary-size folio printed, Griffith writes, simultaneously with issue A (a large-paper folio: 20 February 1733) and from the same type. The transverse crease attests to the slimness of the issue; it could be folded in half and put in a pocket or a pocket-book. All the remaining items line up with the format of the first; i.e., they are ordinary size folios, although in all cases Griffith recognizes only the large-paper format –thus they are described as "like" Griffith issues. Either there were simultaneous issues of ordinary folios in all cases or the remaining items have been (rather substantially) trimmed. The second item, Epistle I – now for the first time called an epistle, and containing reference to the second and third epistles –is like Griffith issue I, the first issue to do so. It is the heir to issue A/B, in that it was likely set up from a marked copy (as attested by Corrected by the A [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        AN EPISTLE TO THE RIGHT HONOURABLE RICHARD LORD VISC[OUN]T COBHAM: OF THE KNOWLEDGE AND CHARACTERS OF MEN

      London: Printed for Lawton Gilliver, 1733 [i.e., 1734]. FIRST EDITION y. This is a very well-preserved copy of one of Pope's 13 famous Horatian epistles. These works were inspired by the "Satires" and "Epistles" of Horace, who, like Pope, had an uneasy tolerance for the foibles of his contemporaries. They are akin to, and from the same period as, Pope's so-called Ethic Epistles, which are essentially fragments of a book-length treatise on human morality that was conceived of but never completed. When the present piece is done examining human nature, its conclusions are not heartening. Pope recognizes the notion of a Ruling Passion as the chief clue to understanding human motivation, but he also sees that the human spirit is never static, is always unpredictable, and is full of dark mysteries. Any abstract system to explain the innermost nature of humans is, consequently, always going to be inadequate.. 350 x 228 mm. (13 3/4 x 9"). 2 p.l., 13, [1] pp., [1] leaf (ad). FIRST EDITION. Recent gray marbled paper wrappers. Woodcut tailpiece. Griffith 329; Foxon P-920; Rothschild 1611. Very slight foxing and browning, but a fine copy, the binding essentially as new, and the text with clean, fresh leaves and ample margins.

        Pensées critiques sur les mathématiques, Ou l'on propose divers préjugés contre ces Sciences, à dessein d'en ébranler la certitude, & de prouver qu'elles ont peu contribué à la perfection des beaux Arts.

      - Paris, Gabriel Valleyre fils, 1733. Petit in-8, plein veau brun de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné de compartiments garnis d'un petit fer spécial doré entre-nerfs, tranches rouges, (2) f., (8), 377, (3) p. Edition originale et unique de cet ouvrage dans lequel l’auteur dénie aux mathématiques toute prétention à la vérité absolue. Il divise son ouvrage en 7 chapitres, chacun s’attaquant à un "préjugé". L’avant-dernier s’attache à réfuter les nouvelles méthodes de calcul infinitésimal mises au point par G.-F.-A. de l'Hôpital et Pierre Varignon. Le dernier chapitre est consacré à question la place des mathématiques dans les beaux-arts: architecture, peinture sculpture, plus particulièrement dans la musique, en se référant à la perfection antique en ces domaines. L’ouvrage se situe dans les retombées de la querelle des anciens et des modernes. Chanoine d'Aubusson, mort prématurément, Cartaud de la Vilatte composa également un essai d'esthétique (‘Essai historique et philosophique sur le goût’) qui fit grand bruit.

        Collectanea Statutorum, et Ordinamentorum Communis Mantuae extracta ex decem Libris contentis in volumine nuncupato Statuta,

      et ordinamenta Civitatis Mantuae existenti penes Officium Annonae, in hoc Aechiducali Mantuano Magistratu. 1733 - Manoscritto cartaceo in-folio (mm. 384 x 265) del sec. XVIII in lingua latina, vergato in chiarissima grafia corsiva, composto da un frontespizio con stemma dei Custoza e ricca cornice floreale, da un indice generale per argomenti di 15 ff. nn., un indice del contenuto del presente volume di 8 ff. nn., 271 pp. numerate e 7 ff. bianchi in fine. Leg. recente in p. pelle con nervature e tit. in oro al dorso. Si tratta, come indicato nel frontespizio, di copia di un volume ms. conservato presso l'ufficio dell'annona di Mantova, contenente solo dieci libri, in quanto i primi due sono gli statuti civili e criminali non pertinenti all'ufficio in questione. L'opera fu eseguita nel 1733 per Giuseppe Custoza. La Famiglia Custoza, di origine vicentina, trae il nome dall'omonimo castello. Iscritta nel 1583 tra i nobili del Consiglio di Vicenza, un suo ramo si stabilì nel XVII sec. a Mantova. Nel 1688 l'Imperatore Leopoldo le conferì la nobiltà imperiale e Ferdinando Carlo Gonzaga, Duca di Mantova, le concesse il titolo comitale. Manca alla compilazione il vol. Settimo (quinto per il presente volume), poiché, come specificato, non esiste nell'originale. I libri I-IV dell'opera trattano delle gabelle comunali, della vendita delle merci, delle arti e mestieri, dell'ordine e pulizia della città e dell'istituzione in essa di chiese e cimiteri e dell'elezione degli ufficiali. Il quinto libro non è presente nell'originale. I libri VI-VIII concernono i ponti e le strade, i notai e i cambi, la proibizione di mutare nome e cognome, i modi e forme delle bollette e le norme per gli uffici pubblici. Il libro IX è di particolare interesse per l'estesa elencazione delle norme promulgate contro gli eretici a partire dalla lettera del 1252 di papa Innocenzo IV e proseguendo con le leggi papali e imperiali con i relativi provvedimenti (Heretici puniantur, Hereticis capiendis, Hereticis exterminandis, Heretici capiti examinentur, Destructione domorum, etc.). Nelle bibliografie consultate non viene dato cenno di un capitolo così dettagliato (68 richiami nell'indice per i vari articoli). Il libro X concerne la divisione della città in quartieri, la macina e la caccia, oltre a riportare il rescritto di Carlo VI del 10 novembre 1715 sulle regole per l'amministrazione della giustizia. Cfr.codice simile in Cat. Senato, IV, 196-198. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Observations upon the prophecies of Daniel, and the Apocalypse of St. John. In two parts.

      Dublin: Pr. by S. Powell, for Goerge Risch, George Ewing, and William Smith 8vo (20 cm; 7.75"). iv, [4], 320 pp.. 1733 First edition printed in Ireland. In addition to being a physicist, mathematician, and natural philosopher, Sir Isaac Newton was something of a Biblical scholar as well, as shown by the present exegesis on apocalyptic texts. His analysis generally reads as being practical in nature — as the New Catholic Encyclopedia (X, 428) says, "Newton's writings on apocalyptical prophecies were not mystical or millenarian in any sense, but more exercises in deciphering cryptograms." They comport with our sense of him as someone who believed in the scientific method! => Printed with a two-page, small-type list of the subscribers to this Irish edition, some entries noting a profession or a locality. Recent full brown calf, Cambridge style binding: Round spine, raised bands accented with single gilt rules above and below each, gilt center device in five spine compartments; black spine label, gilt. Covers tooled in blind with center compartment with corner devices; new endpapers. Old rubber-stamp along inner margin of title, with another to lower margin of dedication page and an inked line of presentation to its gutter; age-toning and stray stains. A good+ copy of the uncommon Dublin edition.

        Batavia - Homann.

      "Der Hollaendisch - Ostindianischen Compagnie Weltberühmte Haupt- Handels und Niederlags - Stadt Batavia, in Asien auf dem grossen Eyland Iava in dem Königreich Iacarta Nord-Westlich gelegen, nach ihrem Grund-Ris und Prospect mit Erläuterung einige ihrer besondersten Merkwürdigkeiten, auf das accurateste vorgestellt von Homannischen Erben Nürnberg Anno 1733"'Kopergravure, in 1733 uitgeven door de Erven Homann. 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).
