After the war he turned his attention the science of agriculture, and published "The New England Farmer... " in 1790. He includes elaborate definitions of many agricultural terms. His definition of oak goes on for almost two pages, and many obscure terms are also included.

        Histoire de poissons contenant la déscription anatomique de leurs parties externes et internes, & le caractere des divers genres rangés pas classe et par ordres

      Amand Konig, With 4 folding engraved plates. Contemporary paper-covered boards, rebacked; a fine copy. First edition of this very interesting work on the anatomy of fishes, in Latin and French on opposite pages. Gouan's history basically consists of full anatomical descriptions, with engravings by Weiss from Gouan's illustrations. Of particular interest are his remarkable observations on muscular movement. The descriptive classification of fish were probably intended as an introduction to a true general natural history of ichthyology. The book was quite popular both in France and following its translation into German.& & Goüan (1733-1821), a physician and professor of botany at Montpellier, was one of the first proponents in France of Linnaeus' methods and nomenclature. As a strict follower of the Linnaean school he only paid attention to exterior characters. According to Pietsch, it should be noted that the anatomy he gives includes a myology rather new for the time. &

        Opere fisico-mediche stampate e manoscritte... raccolte da Antonio suo Figliuolo, corredate d'una Prefazione...

      Venezia, S. Coleti, 1733. 3 volumes. Folio (355 x 225mm). pp. (2), lxxxii, 469; (4), 551; (4), 676, with 92 engraved plates, 3 engraved title-vignettes, 2 engraved plates of portraits one of Vallisnieri and the other one of Contessa Celia Grilla-Borromea, to whom one of the works is dedicated and some engravings in the text. Contemporary half calf, a bit rubbed (frontcover hinge of first volume splitting). First edition of Vallisnieri's collected works. It was edited by his son Antonio and contains all his famous contributions on zoology, entomology, medicine, geology and natural history. Antonio Vallisnieri (1666-1730) was a pupil of Malpighi at Bologna. "In comparison with contemporary scientific thought, Vallisnieri's work has a very modern character - as Redi had already done - the way opened by Galileo (whom he quotes only twice) and Francis Bacon (whom he also quotes) he rejected Scholastic knowledge and trusted solely in direct observation and in experiment... Vallisnieri was thus one of the first modern naturalist to have a clear awareness of the character of scientific phenomena" (DSB). Vallisinieri did a.o. extensive research on the reproductive system of men and animals, he complemented to Redi's demonstration of the fallacy of the hypothesis of spontaneous generation and was a forerunner of evolutionary concepts. Small paper repair to title-pages. B.M. (Nat. Hist.) V, 2191; Nissen ZBI, 4226.

Il frontespizio del I tomo ha il titolo stampato in caratteri rossi e neri., ogni frontespizio ha una vignetta incisa in rame da Alessandro dalla Via ripetuta (cm. 10,5x6,5 raffig. Minerva e Mercurio), numerosi capolettera figurati. L'edizione è riccamente illustrata da complessive 97 tavole (alcune risultano posposte), e 2 ritratti incisi in rame. l'altro di Clelia Grillo Borromeo (alla nobildonna è dedicato il trattato dei Corpi marini). Nel dettaglio vol I: 1 tavola incisa in rame n.t. (p. XLI ritratto del Vallisneri e medaglione allegorico) e complessive 52 tavole incise in rame la maggior parte a piena pagina e alcune a mezza pagina tutte comprese in 43 fogli f.t. e 2 n.t. ( insetti, alghe, rane, camaleonti, sezioni del cervello del bue, piante) e 1 piccola tavola in rame nel testo (a pagina 379). Vol. II: 36 tavole incise in rame di cui 35 fuori testo (2 ripieg.) e 1 a piena pagina n.t. (mostri umani e marini, crostacei, pesci, anguille...), 1 ritratto n.t. di Clelia Grillo Borromeo, inciso in rame da Marco Antonio Dal Re (p. 306), 1 figura intercalata inc. in rame (raffig. l'isola di Zante). Vol. III: 4 tavole inc. in rame fuori testo e 4 tavole minori nel testo (di cui 1 incisa su legno). Freschi esemplari in ottime condizioni. Si tratta dell'Opera Omnia di Antonio Vallisneri, raccolta e pubblicata dal figlio Antonio tre anni dopo la morte del padre. Lo scienziato (1661-1730), medico, naturalista e biologo è anche conosciuto per essere stato uno dei primi ricercatori in medicina ad aver proposto l'abbandono della teoria aristotelica in favore dell'approccio sperimentale basato sui principi scientifici sostenuti da Galileo Galilei. Vallisneri affermava che la conoscenza scientifica è acquisita tramite l'esperienza e il ragionamento. Questo è il principio che lui seguì per le sezioni anatomiche e la descrizione degli insetti. Per questa ragione la sua carriera medica fu al centro di una spinosa controversia, poiché molti dei suoi contemporanei non potevano abbandonare le teorie medioevali, a quel tempo dominanti, anche di fronte all'evidenza sperimentale. Aveva uno stile di scrittura chiaro e preciso. Egli seguì le tracce di Galilei nell'utilizzare la lingua italiana per scrivere i suoi trattati, e fu uno dei più ammirati scrittori di scienza dagli studiosi di tradizione galileiana, come Francesco Redi e Lorenzo Magalotti. La scelta dell'italiano come lingua per le sue opere fu molto coraggiosa per la comunità scientifica del tempo, che usava ancora il latino come "lingua del sapere". Bibl.: Sabia "Le Opere di A. Vallisneri", pp. 126-131

Plates generally quite clean and always pleasing, with faintest waterstaining to lower portion of plate 6 (only). All edges speckled red.. Folio (30.2 cm, 11.875"). [4], x, 200 pp.; pp. [201–202]. 6 fold-out plts. [bound with] Tull, Jethro. A supplement to the essay on horse-hoing husbandry.... London: Pr. for and sold by the author, and may be had at Mr. Mills's, London, at John Aitkins's, Esq, in Edinburgh, and at the Bear in Hungerford, Berks., 1736. Folio. pp. [203–205], 206–69; [1] pp.Improvements in farming founded on a scientific basis made British agriculture one of the strongest in Europe in the 18th century. Though called to the bar, Jethro Tull (1674–1741) never practiced law, but devoted himself to farming on land that had belonged to his father. From the beginning he set about trying to discover ways of doing things better, including inventing a number of implements, as this work reveals both in text and in image. His work proved very successful — Tull's "seed drills" revolutionized planting techniques — and it saw a number of editions; it was translated into French, whence it proved influential on the Continent.This volume's => six beautifully engraved, pleasantly intelligible plates ("W. Thorpe, sculp.) illustrate some of Tull's inventions, including improved plows and drills for planting seeds.First printed in London in 1731, Horse-hoing is here (likely) the fourth edition; it is only the second London (and it is the first in folio), but there were also apparently two Dublin editions of 1731. Bound with it is the first edition of the interesting Supplement issued in 1736, directed largely to answering Tull's detractors. The first title is fairly widely held, in libraries; the latter, much less so.

        The Doctrine of Chances: Or, A Mehtod of Calculating the Probabilities of Events in Play. The Second Edition, Fuller, Clearer, and more Correct than the First.London: H. Woodfall, 1738.

      A beautiful copy of the important second edition of this classic, as it is the first to contain De Moivre's main contribution to the field, i.e., his work on the normal distribution, which "became the most fruitful single instrument of discovery used in probability theory and statistics for the next two centuries." (DSB, IX: 452-453). De Moivre's result was first published in a privately circulated pamphlet which today is known in just six copies.<br/><br/> "In 1733, twenty years after the publication of James and Nicholas Bernoulli's results, de Moivre succeeded in finding a simple and accurate approximation to the binomial distribution. He considered this result so important that he printed a seven-page paper, <i>Approximatio ad Summam Terminorum Binomii (a+b)<sup>n</sup> in Serium expansi</i>, for private circulation. The Latin pamphlet was translated by de Moivre himself, and with some additions it was included in the second and third editions of the <i>Doctrine of Chances</i> (1738, pp.235-243; 1756, pp.243-254) under the title, 'A Method of approximating the Sum of the Terms of the Binomial <i>(a+b)<sup>n</sup></i> expanded into a Series, from where are deduced some practical Rules to Estimate the Degree of Assent which is to be given to Experiments.' The last sentence of the title refers to the comments to the original results given in 1738 and 1756. Only six copies of the <i>Approximatio</i> have been found" (Anders Hald: A History of Probability and Statistics and their Applications before 1750, p.485).

Late 18th- or early 19th-century speckled calf, round spine gilt extra, boards plain; two red leather spine labels on each volume with author/title and volume number, all edges marbled. Leather of four boards slightly abraded with loss of some leather, otherwise a binding in remarkably good (and strong) condition, especially notable for tomes of this size. Ex-library with bookplates but no stamps, the set generally shows offsetting from leather of binding to endpapers and otherwise light foxing and the odd spot only, with light evidence of old, mild exposure to moisture at some margins. => A very handsome set in very good condition, valuable both as precisely what it is *and* as representing a whole grand era/category of scholarship and book production..

Vols. I, II, and III were printed in 1733 by Vincent but vol. IV was delayed until 1759 when Debure printed it .All volumes are => elegantly printed in double-column format placing => the original Greek text in the inner columns, the Latin translation in the outer, and commentary/notes in a smaller font below, with ease of navigation enhanced by additional side- and shouldernotes. Title-pages in black and red, and initials and head- and tailpieces both woodcut and engraved, grace and support the scholarly production; the title-pages are well laid out, the initials are various and sometimes large. Three => page-spanning engravings appear in addition, each one-third page in height, with the first two depicting Clement XII (with putti, after Gravelot and signed by N. Dupuis) and the second depicting a complex scene of martyrdom (signed Jac. de Savanne) &#151; these in vol. I, while vol. IV boasts an unsigned companion image showing a scene of judgment or law-giving.Origen's works are among the foundational works of Christian thought and were read by all of the church fathers. He had a profound influence on the history of ideas in the fields of theology, philology, and preaching from late antique times to the present.Vols. I, II, and III were edited by Charles de La Rue and IV by C.V. de La Rue.This => large folio edition is "ex variis editionibus, & codicibus manu exaratis, Gallicanis, Ialicis, Germanicis & Anglicis collecta, recensita, Latine versa, atque annotationibus illustrata, cum copiosis indicibus, vita auctoris, & multis dissertationibus.

Samtida nött skinnband, ryggen med senare titelfält i skinn; skadat rygghuvud, svag och lagad främre fals, invändigt ngt solkad och nött, ett blad med flottfläck, ett par blad med marginalrevor. Utan porträttet. Ett arbetsexemplar med andra ord, vilket i detta fall är en särskild poäng!Proveniens: P. D. A. Atterbom (1790-1855), uppenbarligen därefter gåva till Johan Henrik Schröder, med noteringen "amico suo tessera amicitiae", till vilket Schröder fogat sin egen namnteckning. Senare hos Carl Sjögren (förvärvsanteckning från bokauktion i Uppsala 1856); exlibris från pansarbåtsauktionen 1912 (nr. 699, skänkt av fru M. Fahlberg å Thorsätra, Kungsängen), där den köptes av Christian Lovén, som även försåg den med sitt exlibris. Därtill en med boken samtida namnteckning, Sven Stillman.. Andra, utökade upplagan av Runius' Dudaim. Sista delen avslutas med en innehållsförteckning till hela verket. Atterbom avhandlar Runius och hans "rimskrifter", Dudaim, i Svenska siare och skalder, 2, 1843, särskilt s. 184-201. Några tvillingsjälar var de dock inte, Atterbom saknade enligt Kulling sinne för det 'grovkorniga karolinska skämtlynnet' och kände större sympati för blida lyriker såsom Columbus och Frese. (Jacob Kulling, Atterboms "Svenska siare och skalder" (1931), s. 216-17.Schröder och Atterbom kunde inte undgå att bli bekanta i Uppsala; 1839 utgav de tillsammans med Palmblad tidskriften Mimer och 1849 hörde Schröder till det fåtal vänner i akademiska konsistoriet som röstade för att Atterbom skulle beviljas tjänstledighet från sin proffessur, bl.a. för att avsluta Svenska siare och skalder

        The Argument of the Lord Keeper Sommers, On His Giving Judgment

      1733. Somers, John, Baron [1651-1716]. The Argument of the Lord Keeper Sommers, On His Giving Judgment in the Bankers Case: Deliver'd in the Exchequer-Chamber, June 23, 1696. [London]: Printed by E. and R. Nutt, and R. Gosling, 1733. [ii], 128 pp. Quarto (8" x 7"). Stab-stitched pamphlet bound into recent marbled boards, printed paper title label to spine. Soiling to title page and verso of final leaf, light foxing to a few leaves. Early shelf label to head of title page, annotations to two leaves, interior otherwise clean. * Only edition and the only complete account. This case was an unfortunate moment in Somers's otherwise brilliant career. (He was an important Whig jurist, Lord Chancellor during the reigns of William & and Mary and Queen Anne and framer of the English Bill of Rights). "In the most important case which came before him in the exchequer chamber, that of the bankers who had recovered judgment in the court of exchequer for arrears of interest due to them as assignees of certain perpetual annuities charged by Charles II upon the hereditary excise as security for advances, he expended some hundreds of pounds and an immense amount of thought and research, with no better result than to defeat an intrinsically just claim, on the technical ground that it was not cognisable in the court of exchequer, but only by petition of right. No judgment so elaborate had ever been delivered in Westminster Hall as that by which, in November 1696, he reversed the decision of the court of exchequer.": (DNB). This decision was reversed by the House of Lords three years later. Despite Somers's importance, few accounts of his legal work exist today; it is known mostly through summaries.

There is a wonderful double page pen and ink plate by Rowlandson. The coloured plates are mostly, 1801 or 2.

Contemporary full calf rebacked with five raised bands on spine with gilt decoration and contrasting spine label bearing gilt titles, boards with elaborate gilt border and inside gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers with bookplate to front pastedowns, leaf H1 in vol 2 with neatly repaired closed tear, engraved frontis to each vol and numerous engraved initials and illustrations throughout. The work was printed entirely from engraved plates and this is the 1st issue without the correction to the engraving on p.108 of volume 2 and has been bound without the &#39;List of Antiques&#39; in volume 1. , John Pine (1690-1756) was an English engraver, designer and cartographer. Biographical sketches often refer to Pine as being black or of African ancestry but the veracity of these claims is uncertain and a portrait of Pine by his good friend William Hogarth does nothing to settle the matter. What is known of Pine is that he was a member of the Freemasons and that this and his work for them, he produced the annual engraved list of member Lodges, undoubtedly helped his career as an artist. Pine is rightly considered the finest English engraver of the 18th century and the work offered here is in many ways his masterpiece. However his legacy is greater than simply the work he produced; together with Hogarth he was instrumental in the creation of law to protect artists&#39; copyrights and was among those who began the process of establishing the Royal Academy of Arts, a project not completed until after his death. , 8vo 8" - 9" tall, [32] 264 [2] & [24] 191 [15] pp .

        Le faux Aristarque reconnu, ou lettres critiques sur le dictionnaire néologique , Pantalon-Phoebus , le discours de Mathanasius , les voyages des deux Gulliver.... de l&#39;abbé Desfontaines/ Anecdotes grecques, ou aventures secrètes d&#39;Aridée

      A Amsterdam, à Paris: chez Guillaume Le Sincère, chez la veuve Guillaume, 1733. relié. grd in 12 (16,5x10cm). Editions originales de ces deux livres. Les anecdotes grecques paraissent rares, nous n&#39;en avons trouvé qu&#39;un seul exemplaire détenu par la British Library. Plein Veau glacé moucheté d&#39;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&#39;Aristarque (considéré comme l&#39;inventeur de la critique au Ive siècle avant J. C.) désignait sous l&#39;ancien régime le critique judicieux et éclairé. L&#39;ouvrage constitue (en dehors des épigrammes de Voltaire) l&#39;un des textes les plus virulents écrit contre l&#39;abbé Desfontaine, Dans ces « lettres critiques », l&#39;auteur s&#39;attache à dénoncer en détail les erreurs, invraisemblances et barbarismes de Desfontaines. L&#39;« Avertissement » donne le ton : Pitaval lui dénie presque toute &#156;uvre originale, et dénonce « Le plagiarisme de l&#39;Abbé Desfontaines qui s&#39;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&#39;exemple de Pitaval est représentatif : les attaques contre la critique littéraire de Desfontaines vont souvent de pair avec l&#39;accusation de plagiat. Les critiques poursuivront ces attaques après la mort de Desfontaines, enterrant les pratiques d&#39;une ancienne critique très répandue au XVII et au XVIIIe et favorisant l&#39;essor d&#39;une nouvelle et vraie critique. Les anecdotes grecques sont un roman historique sur le frère d&#39;Alexandre le Grand. Nous l&#39;avons trouvé sous le nom d&#39;Aridée à la British Library, bien que ce nom soit aussi celui du héros. - chez Guillaume Le Sincère, chez la veuve Guillaume, A Amsterdam, à Paris _1733, 1731, grd in 12 (16,5x10cm), xi, (1bc) 250pp. et viij, 240pp., Un Vol. relié. - Un Vol. relié

[7], vii, [2], 376pp. (roman-numbered pages have even-numbered rectos and odd-numbered versos). 19 engraved plates. London: W. & J. Innys, 1727. 193 x 121 mm. Paneled calf c. 1727, gilt spine, label renewed, light wear. (2) Statical essays: containing haemastaticks. . . . 8vo. xxii, [26], 361, [23]pp. London: W. Innys. . . , 1733. 197 x 122 mm. Mottled calf, gilt-ruled spine c. 1733, skillfully rebacked, label renewed. Together 2 volumes. Very good. Bookplate of distinguished British pathologist Alastair Robb-Smith (1908-2000) in Statical Essays. First Editions. Hales initiated a new stage in physiological experimentation with his "statical" methods, which were characterized by precise quantitative measurements, repetition and the used of controls, and were based on the assumption that that the known laws of matter operated in the bodies of plants and animals as well as in non-living materials. In his investigations of plant physiology, described in Vegetable Staticks, Hales studied the movement of water in plants, determining that leaf suction is the main force by which water is raised through a plant, and showing that plants lose water constantly via transpiration through their leaves. He also demonstrated that plants do not have a true circulation, and developed techniques to measure the varying rates of growth in different plant structures. Vegetable Staticks is the first volume of Hales's Statical Essays, the second volume of which (Haemastaticks) appeared in 1733. Haemastaticks, which was published to accompany the second edition of Hales' Vegetable Staticks, records "Hales' 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 the blood-pressure measuring instruments now in universal use" (Garrison-Morton 765). In the course of his work Hales indirectly discovered vasodilatation and vasoconstriction. Concluding that the force of the arterial blood in the capillaries could not be sufficient to produce muscular motion, he suggested a force regulated by the nerves, and perhaps electrical. "Hales was therefore the first physiologist to suggest, with some evidence to support it, the role of electricity in neuromuscular phenomena" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). The title Statical Essays does not appear in the first edition of Vegetable Staticks; it was first applied to the whole work on the publication of the second edition (1731).

        Map of the British Empire in America with the French and Spanish Settlements adjacent Thereto

      London: William Toms, 1733. THE FIRST LARGE-SCALE PRINTED MAP OF COLONIAL NORTH AMERICA Ten engraved maps with original hand color on twenty sheets: left maps 21" x 543/4"; right maps 21" x 393/4" References: Seymour I. Schwartz & Ralph E. Ehrenberg, The Mapping of America (New York, 1980), 151-152; Mark Babinski, Henry Popple&#39;s 1733 Map of The British Empire in North America (Garwood, NJ, 1998); M.B. Pritchard and H.M. Taliaferro, Degrees of Latitude: Mapping Colonial America (Williamsburg, 2002), 134-41. Henry Popple&#39;s Map of the British Empire in America marks the beginning of a new epoch in the mapping of America, and was the first in a series of maps published up to the 1760s that would catapult England to the forefront in the study of the geography of the continent. Commissioned by the Lord Commissioner of Trade and Plantation, it was intended as a tool for mediating disputes arising from the competing claims of English, French and Spanish colonists. In the years when this map was made, territorial disputes demanded current and precise geographical knowledge, and copies of Popple&#39;s map were sent to the governors of each English colony for official use. The map illustrates the growth of knowledge about the interior of the American Northeast, and there is much information regarding settlements and natives in the areas of the Great Lakes. Popple&#39;s map is a compilation of French and English sources, primarily Guillaume Delisle&#39;s "Carte du Canada" 1703 and "Carte de la Louisiana et Cours du Mississippi" 1718; , as well as the maps of Herman Moll. The most valuable contribution is in the area of the American Southeast, where the map incorporates information from the highly important survey by Colonel John Barnwell, circa 1722, which was the first detailed English map of the southern frontier. Information for the printed map was compiled at least as early as 1727, a date that appears on a signed manuscript draft by Popple now in the British Museum, although the actual draftsman of the final map was Clement Lempriere, an English military cartographer who worked in the Corps of Engineers. Of the four inset views, two are of special note. The first, of New York City, is an early copy of William Burgis&#39;s "South Prospect of the Flourishing City of New York," circa 1720. A second perspective view, of Quebec, is based on the manuscripts of Franquelin Joliet, which were previously published in French maps by De Fer and Châtelain. Seventeen detailed charts depict major islands and ports on the American coast and in the Caribbean. Boston, New York and Charleston are included, the latter based on the important inset to Edward Crisp&#39;s map of 1711. Numerous legends note historical and topographical features, including the route of Spanish fleet through the Bahama Channel and a vignette depicting the engagement of Sir Charles Wagner against the Spanish off Cartagena..

        A Map of the British Empire in America with the French and Spanish settlements adjacent thereto

      London: "Engrav&#39;d by Willm. Henry Toms", "1733" [but circa 1735]. Folio. (20 1/2 x 15 3/8 inches). Engraved map by William Henry Toms, with very fine full contemporary hand-colouring (with twenty-two integral inset views and plans) on 15 double-page and 5 single-page sheets, with full contemporary hand-colouring, mounted on guards throughout. (Without the table of contents leaf as usual, and without the double-page key map by Toms). Expertly bound to style in half 18th-century russia over original 18th-century marbled paper-covered boards, spine gilt with red morocco spine label, modern blue morocco-backed cloth box, titled in gilt. A monument to 18th-century American cartography: a highly attractive fully- coloured copy of the first large-scale map of North America, and the first printed map to show the thirteen colonies. Popple maps with full contemporary colour are exceedingly rare. Popple produced this map under the auspices of the Lord Commissioners of Trade and Plantations to help settle disputes arising from the rival expansion of English, Spanish and French colonies. "France claimed not only Canada, but also territories drained by the Mississippi and it&#39;s tributaries - in practical terms, an area of half a continent" (Goss The Mapping Of North America p.122.) The present copy of Popple&#39;s map, with its full contemporary hand-colouring, would have been particularly useful in these disputes. Mark Babinski in his masterly monograph on this map notes that &#39;The typical coloring of fully colored copies ... is described best by a contemporary manuscript legend on the end-paper affixing the Key map to the binding in the King George III copy at the British Library: "Green - Indian Countrys. Red - English. Yellow - Spanish. Blue - French. Purple - Dutch." The careful demarcation of the disputed areas by colour would have made the identification of whether a particular location was in one or another &#39;zone&#39; a great deal easier. Thus the colouring adds a whole new dimension to a map that is usually only seen in its uncoloured state, and perhaps suggests that the copies with full hand-colouring were originally produced for some as-yet-unrediscovered official use to do with the international land disputes of the time. Benjamin Franklin, on May 22, 1746, ordered two copies of this map, "one bound the other in sheets," for the Pennsylvania Assembly. It was the only map of sufficient size and grandeur available - and the map is on a grand scale: if actually assembled it would result in a rectangle over eight feet square. Its coverage extends 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 handsome pictorial insets, including views of New York City, Niagara Falls, Mexico City, and Quebec, and inset maps of Boston, Charles-Town, Providence, Bermuda, and a number of others. "Little is known of Henry Popple except that he came from a family whose members had served the Board of Trade and Plantations for three generations, a connection that must have been a factor in his undertaking the map, his only known cartographic work" (McCorkle America Emergent 21.) Babinski has made a detailed study of the issues and states of the Popple map. This copy is in Babinski&#39;s state 6: the imprint on sheet 20 reads "London Engrav&#39;d by Willm. Henry Toms 1733" (i.e. without R. W. Searle&#39;s name), sheet one includes the engraved figure "l" in the upper left corner just above the intersection of the two neat lines and engraved sheet numbers have been added to the upper right corners of each sheet.

"John Pine (1690-1756) may well have been the pupil of Bernard Picart, the great French engraver at Amsterdam: he was the best English engraver in the first half of the century. His edition of Horace is engraved throughout, text as well as ornament... "The results are a unity between decoration and text which at times suggests Didot&#39;s Horace of 1799; a contrast between thick and thin strokes in the letters which naturally follows from the engraving process but which foreshadows the type design of Baskerville, Bodoni, and Didot; and the wide &#39;leading&#39; between the lines of text which did so much to give their pages a brilliant effect."-Printing & the Mind of Man, Exhibition of Fine Printing, no. 105. "The subscription list printed at the beginning of the book must be one of the most illustrious of its kind, naming the great and the good from every corner of Europe, including the kings of England, Spain, and Portugal."-ODNB. A fine copy in an outstanding doublée binding by Padeloup le Jeune. Quite uncommon in a fine contemporary French binding with arms. With the slightest of rubbing at a few extremities. &#10087; Blumenthal, Art of the Printed Book, p. 24-"a tour de force." .

        Neue gründlich- historisch- und physicalische Beschreibung des bey einer Zeit her zur Ungebühr übelberüchtigten holländischen See- oder Pfahl-Wurms/ aus gedruckt- und geschriebenen gewissen Nachrichten gezogen, worinnen die Wahrheit von dem, was man fälschlich ausgestreuet genau abgesondert, und verschiedenes so bishero wenig oder gar nicht erläutert war, mit sichern Urtheilen beleuchtet wird.

      Mit 4 gefalteten Kupfertafeln. 4 Bll., 62 S. HLdr. d. Zt. mit Rückenverg., Vorderdeckel mit kl. Wappensupralibros. Kl.-4°. Deliciae Cobresianae I, 423, 19; Engelmann, Bibliotheca historico-naturalis 444. - Über die Termiten der Meere, den Schiffsbohrwurm (eigentlich eine Muschel, Teredo navalis), der bereits römische Galeeren zerfraß und insgesamt 9 Schiffe des Christoph Kolumbus zum Sinken brachte. 1731 machten sich die gefräßigen Tiere über die hölzernen Deichtore in Holland her und lösten eine Sturmflut aus; die Wissenschaft begann sich nun mit den sonderbaren Tieren zu beschäftigen, 1758 endlich klassifizierte Linné den Schrecken der Seefahrt. - Der leider für mich nicht zu ermittelnde Autor vermerkt in seinem Vorwort: "Übrigens haben wir, weil doch die Materie, so neu sie immer ist, an sich selbt von einem verdrießlichen Wurm handelt, und leichtlich einen Eckel erwecken könte, sie mit einer muntern Schreib-Art würtzen ... desto geschmackvoller machen". Die interessanten Tafeln zeigen den Wurm, seine Bestandteile und befallene Holzstücke. - Schönes Exemplar!
