The whole containing the history of the most illustrious persons of all ages and nations particularly those of Great Britain and Ireland, distinguished by their rank, actions, learning and other accomplishments. With reflections on such passages of Bayle, as seem to favor scepticism and the Manichee system

      London, Printed by J. Bettenham, 1734-1741. Acceptable. Ten folio volumes, complete. Contemporary leather, rebacked in the early 1800s, raised bands, red and green leather spine labels. Wear, rubbing and chipping to leather, joints cracked. A few boards detached. Library markings. Bookplate of Charles Whitcombe. Occasional spotting, marginal dampstaining to several volumes. This is an oversized or heavy book, that requires additional postage for international delivery outside the US. Per Printing in the Mind of Man 155b: "For over half a century, until the publication of the Encyclopedie, Bayle's Dictionnaire dominated enlightened thinking in every part of Europe" Pierre Bayle's Dictionary is effectively constituted one of the first encyclopaedias of ideas and their originators. In the Dictionary, Bayle expressed his view that much that was considered to be "truth" was actually just opinion, and that gullibility and stubbornness were prevalent. The Dictionary remains an important scholarly work for several generations after its publication." <br> This is an oversized or heavy book, that requires additional postage for international delivery outside the US. <br><br> Pierre Bayle was a Huguenot scholar who fled from French religious intolerance to Geneva and Holland. Bayle's influential encyclopedia was a best-selling philosophical work of the 18th century. The Dictionnaire's influence can be seen on Diderot, Locke, Leibniz, Kant, Hume, Berkeley, among others. The work combined biography, history, literary criticism, theology, obscenity, in addition to philosophical treatments of toleration, the problem of evil, epistemological questions, etc. Bayle's extensive commentary propelled his reader's interest. (Although an avowed Christian by faith rather than by reason, Bayle's fideist approach to the question of God created the logical framework for an atheist worldview. Many of the more controversial ideas in the book were hidden away in the voluminous footnotes, or slipped into articles on seemingly uncontroversial topics. Bayle pointed out contradictions between theological tenets and the supposedly self-evident dictates of reason, though at the same time sought to promote religious tolerance, and argued strongly against inflexible and authoritarian application of religious articles of faith. (Standford Encyclopedia of Philosophy) Bayle's remarks on Spinoza are particularly interesting. Bayle's emphasis on toleration had important reverberations on the Enlightenment.

        Memoires de l'Academie Royale des Sciences: Memoires pour servir a l'histoire naturelle des Animaux

      Paris: Par La Compagnie des Libraires, 1734. Hardcover. Very Good+. Three volumes, comprising Vol. III, parts I to III of Memoires de l’Académie Royale des Sciences depuis 1666 jusqu’à 1699. Paris: Par La Compagnie des Libraires, 1733-1734. Part I: 231pp.; Part II: 294pp.; Part III: 215pp. 97 engraved folding plates depicting animals and skeletal diagrams. Engraved portrait frontispiece of Claude Perrault in first volume. Contemporary French calf, spines gilt, edges red; (some occasional browning; repairs to joints, some rubbing). Unidentified armorial bookplate to front pastedown beneath monogrammed bookplate “D.P.” with chipmunk and two mice. A later reduced format edition of Perrault’s Memoires of 1671-1676, Perrault’s study of this nature was first published in 1669 with the results of investigations of five animals and later expanded with studies of over forty animals. Prior to 1670, most descriptions of animals paid little attention to their internal structure, and there were very few images in natural history encyclopedias that depicted skeletons or muscles. That changed with the establishment of the Académie des Sciences in Paris in 1666 by Jean-Baptiste Colbert with the approval of King Louis XIV. The Academy functioned with neither statutes nor regulations until 1699. At that time, the Academy used the term mathématique to encompass the fields that are now called astronomy, mathematics and physics, and the term physique to encompass the fields that are now called anatomy, botany, zoology and chemistry. In January 1699, Louis reorganized the Academy, giving it first regulations. The effect was to give the King more control over their activities in exchange for becoming an official institution under his protection with the new name Académie Royale des Sciences. One of the original academicians, the physician Claude Perrault, organized regular sessions at which participants could dissect deceased animals from Louis XIV’s royal menagerie and record all they observed. Lions, chameleons, bears, gazelles, wolves, ostriches, crocodiles, monkeys, eagles, tigers, porcupines and salamanders, among some, were all laid open by the academic’s scalpels. These superb folding plates record in great detail the pioneering work at the Academy. These three volumes, in three parts, focus on the transformative and foundational years of the French Royal Academy of Sciences and Claude Perrault’s efforts which had made comparative anatomy a vital tool for the classifying naturalist.

Exquisitely bound in lovely full contemporary French calf-gilt.“Molière may be said to have created modern French comedy by giving it a serious basis, where there had previously been little but farces and comedies of intrigue… His genius lay in his ability to combine profound observation of human nature in its complexity and in its foibles with the power of presenting these in their amusing aspect” (Harvey & Heseltine, 487). “General opinion holds that the Boucher Molière and the Oudry La Fontaine are the two masterpieces of French book illustration during the first half of the 18th century… The book’s format is noble, Molière’s text is presented with more care than ever before, and Laurent Cars’ engravings catch the spontaneity and elegance of Boucher’s sketches with easy precision” (Ray). First state, with “Comteese” in Volume VI, page 360, line 12. Bound with all half titles. Text in French. Ray, The Art of the French Illustrated Book 6. Brunet III, 1798. Cohen-de Ricci, 712-14.

      Paris: Imprimerie de P. Prault, 1734. Fine. Imprimerie de P. Prault, Paris 1734, in-4 (22x29cm), (6) lxx ; 330pp. et (6) 446pp. et (6) 442pp. et (6) 420pp. et (6) 618pp. et (6) 554pp., 6 volumes reliés. - First printing (with the error « comteese » to line 12 on page 360 of volume VI) of this illustrated edition with a portrait by Coypel engraved by Lepicié, a fleuron on the title repeated for each volume, 33 figures by François Boucher engraved by Laurent Cars, and 198 vignettes and tail-pieces (several repeated) by Boucher, Blondel and Oppenord, engraved by Cars and Joullain. Contemporary brown calf, spine in six compartments with red and green morocco title and volume labels, gilt frames and fleurons, triple blindruled fillet frame to covers, double gilt fillets to edges of covers, gilt dentelle frame to pastedowns and marbled endpapers, all edges speckled red. Skillful repairs to some joints, corners, and head- and tail-pieces. Two small paper faults to frontispiece, not significant. Repaired tear without lack, repaired using a strip of paper to verso of title page of first volume. A painter at the court of Louis XV and protégé of Madame de Pompadour, of whom he painted a number of portraits, François Boucher (1703-1770) was one of the major artists of the Rococo movement in France. Influenced by Watteau's fêtes galantes, he made the rococo a style in which the erotic treatment of the body was associated with a theatricality of movement and attitude in settings where artifice, winning out over realism, broke with the everyday, giving the paintings a newfound sensuality. These characteristics justify his work on the Works of Molière : his style, flexible and fluid, sits well with the intrigues - some amorous, some familial - of the playwright and makes for pleasing illustrations to the text. Ex libris pasted to each front pastedown with the name of Jacques-Marie Jérôme Michau de Montaran, master of Ordinary Requests at the Hôtel du Roi. A fine copy in a contemporary binding, illustrated by one of the most influential artists of the French Rococo style. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Premier tirage (présentant bien la coquille à « comteese » à la ligne 12 de la page 360 du tome VI) de cette édition illustrée d'un portrait par Coypel gravé par Lépicié, d'un fleuron en page de titre répété sur chaque volume, de 33 figures par François Boucher gravées par Laurent Cars, et de 198 vignettes et culs-de-lampe (plusieurs répétés) par Boucher, Blondel et Oppenord, gravés par Cars et Joullain. Reliures de l'époque en plein veau brun, dos à cinq nerfs ornés de pièces de titre et de tomaisons en maroquin rouge et vert, de caissons et de fleurons dorés, triples filets à froid en encadrement des plats, doubles filets dorés sur les coupes, dentelle dorée en encadrement des contreplats et gardes de papier à la cuve, toutes tranches mouchetées rouges. Habiles restaurations de certains mors, coins et coiffes. Deux petites décharges de papier sur le frontispice, sans gravité. Une déchirure sans manque restaurée au verso à l'aide d'une bande de papier sur la page de titre du premier volume. Peintre de la cour de Louis XV, protégé par la marquise de Pompadour dont il réalisa de nombreux portraits, François Boucher (1703-1770) fut l'un des artistes majeurs du rococo en France. Influencé par les fêtes galantes de Watteau, il fait du rococo un style où le traitement érotique des corps est associé à une théâtralisation des gestes et des attitudes, dans des décors où l'artifice, primant sur le réalisme, rompt avec le quotidien et insuffle une sensualité nouvelle à la peinture. Ces caractéristiques justifient sa collaboration aux Œuvres de Molière : son trait, souple et fluide, s'associe harmonieusement aux intrigues tantôt galantes, tantôt familiales du dramaturge et illustre plaisamment les textes. Ex-libris encollé sur chaque premier contreplat au nom de Jacques-Marie Jérôme Michau de Montaran, Maître des Requêtes ordinaires de l'Hôtel du Roi. Très bel exemplaire en reliure de l'époque, illustré par l'un des peintres les plus influents du rococo français.

Three caps head and two tails restored and some reinforced corners. Some scuffs. A pale wetness in Volume I, and some very tiny and rare spots. Boucher began his career as an illustrator and engraver, including participation in the illustration and ornamentation of several editions; the realization of Molière finally allows him to fully exploit its capabilities and gives publishing its absolutely exceptional. The costumes, the staging orchestrated by the artist are well wonder in the theater Molière which Boucher attend numerous times for his illustration. This is one of the first editions that fully and totally the work of a marriage between an artist and a text. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Chef-d&#39;œuvre de Boucher en tant qu&#39;illustrateur et sans conteste l&#39;un des plus beaux livres réalisés dans la première partie du XVIIIème siècle. Second tirage. On notera que l&#39;on voit assez rarement cette édition.   L&#39;illustration comprend un beau portrait par Coypel gravé par Lépicié, un fleuron en page de titre répété sur chaque volume, 33 figures par Boucher gravées par Laurent Cars, et 198 vignettes et culs-de-lampe (plusieurs répétés) par Boucher, Blondel et Oppenord, gravés par Cars et Joullain.   Reliures en plein veau moucheté d&#39;époque. Dos à cinq nerfs ornés de pièces de titre et de tomaisons de basane blonde, caissons et fleurons dorés. Triples filets dorés en encadrement des plats. Toutes tranches marbrées. Coiffes de têtes des volumes 1 et 5 légèrement frottées, celle du tome 5 avec un infime manque. Mors de plusieurs volumes fendus et quelques épidermures. Pâles mouillures en marges basses de certains cahiers des tomes 4, 5 et 6.   Boucher a commencé sa carrière comme illustrateur et graveur, notamment en participant à l&#39;illustration et l&#39;ornementation de plusieurs éditions ; la réalisation du Molière lui permet enfin d&#39;exploiter pleinement ses capacités et confère à l&#39;édition son caractère absolument exceptionnel. Les costumes, la mise en scène savamment orchestrée par l&#39;artiste font ainsi merveille dans le théâtre de Molière auquel Boucher assistera de nombreuses fois pour son illustration. C&#39;est l&#39;une des premières éditions qui soit pleinement et totalement l&#39;œuvre d&#39;un mariage entre un artiste et un texte.  Ex-libris de la bibliothèque de John Wingfield Larking (1801-1891) contrecollé sur chaque contreplat.

        Naturalis dispositio echinodermatum. Accessit lucubratiuncula de aculeis echinorum marinorum, cum spicilegio de belemnitis.

      - Gedani [Gdansk, Dantzig], T. J. Schreiber, 1734. 4to (24.5 x 19.9 cm). Title page in red and black; 78, [i] pp.; with engraved title-vignette and wood-engraved decorated letter N in the praefatio [preface], plus 36 engraved plates. 19th century half cloth over speckled boards, gilt title on spine.l "One of the earliest monographic treatments of the sea-urchins, a major source of information on the Echinoidea for zoologists and paleontologists throughout the 18th century" (DSB). Jacob Theodor Klein (1685-1759) introduced the name Echinodermata, the term now used for the Phylum, in this work (for the class Echinoidea). Title printed in red and black. Several of the figures may be representations of type specimens. Despite the title it does not include true belemnites (fossil Cephalopoda, Mollusca), but there are belemnite-like sea urchin spines. According to some book dealers, the later (1754) French translation has extra plates; that is not quite correct as the total in that work is only 28. However, six of these plates are new and based on specimens from the collection of M. de Reaumur. The other 22 plates are a rearrangement of some figures (not all) from the 36 plates of this first edition (Robert Stokes, in litt.). Plate 31 with a small inoffensive brown spot in the lower part. Otherwise a very good copy with broad margins. DSB VIII, p. 401; Nissen ZBI, 2205. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Versuch über die Anwendung der Minen im Belagerungskriege (4 Stücke in einem Band), oder militairischer Theil der Minirkunst, auf Schriften und einigen neuen Erfahrungen gegründet, aus den besten Schriften, und aus einigen Erfahrungen gezogen

      mit 14 mehrfach gefalteten Kupfer-Tafeln, 68, 84, 128, 184 Seiten, (4 Bl. "Zusätze"), 13x20 cm, braunes OLdr der Zeit mit reicher Rückenvergoldung und geprägtem Rückenschild, rotem Farbschnitt und goldgeprägten Kanten sowie herrlich marmorierten Vorsätzen, Außergewöhnlich gut erhaltenes Exemplar der höchst seltenen EA mit einem Besitzvermerk von alter Hand. Lahr (1734-1816) war Ingenieur und preußischer Generalleutnant. Nach seiner Teilnahme am Siebenjährigen Krieg (Magdeburg 1757, Olmütz 1758, Schweidnitz 1762) konnte er als Experte für die "Kunst" der Mineure gelten. Seine Erfahrungen und Kenntnisse verarbeitete er in dem vorliegenden Grundlagenwerk, das noch über 100 Jahre später dem Technischen Militärkomitee des K.u.K. Kriegsministeriums in Wien als "berühmte Schrift" galt (Militärwissenschaftliche Mitteilungen 1899, S. 273). Die Erscheinungsumstände sind nicht ganz geklärt. Laut Allgemeiner Deutscher Biographie wurde der bereits begonnene Druck des ersten Teils des Buches 1778 durch Friedrich den Großen verhindert (damit keine fremden Mächte von dem gesammelten Wissen profitierten). Demnach sei das Buch erst 1798 unter König Friedrich Wilhelm III. gedruckt worden. Allerdings wurde der erste Teil des Buches parallel in von der Groebens Neuer Kriegsbibliothek, 7. Stück, Breslau 1778, S. 251 ff. abgedruckt und wird in Nicolais Allgemeiner Deutscher Bibliothek, Bd. 39 (1779), S. 583 bezeichnet als "eine Schrift, welche man in allen Buchläden () kaufen kann, und die in jedermanns Händen ist". Auch findet sich im vorliegenden Buch kein Hinweis auf eine spätere Drucklegung

        Aan de Oude Rijn - Dirk Verrijk.

      GEZICHT OP EEN DORP AAN DE OUDE RIJNTekening met pen en penseel in grijs van de hand van topografisch kunstenaar Theodorus (genaamd ?Dirk?) Verrijk (1734-1786). Afm. 25 x 37,7 cm.Verrijk maakte veelal ter plaatse een gedetailleerde schets en werkte die later uit. Aan de oevers van de Vecht, Spaarne en Oude Rijn rijen de welvarende dorpen en buitenplaatsen aaneen. In dit decor van fraaie huizen, tuinkoepels en loofgangen, dorpskerken, molens en bruggen wordt het dagelijkse leven zo aantrekkelijk verbeeld dat de moeizame arbeid van vissers, beurtschippers en werklui voor ons oog eerder een idyllisch tijdverdrijf lijkt dan de harde werkelijkheid. Op tekeningen van Verrijk is enorm veel te zien, ook in de kleine steden en dorpen geeft Verrijk alle details weer.Prijs: ?2.150,- (incl. lijst).

Bien qu&#146;il présente cette oeuvre comme une traduction d&#146;Andrew SNAPE, maréchal de la cour de Charles II, il semble qu&#146;il ait pris quelques libertés avec le texte initial, et se soit surtout servi des planches de l&#146;anglais pour en dessiner sa propre version. Les illustrations concernant l&#146;anatomie du cheval ont toutes été copiées par SNAPE sur l&#146;anatomia del cavallo de RUINI puis ensuite redessinées par DE GARSAULT comme en atteste la mention "F.

        AN EPISTLE FROM MR. POPE, TO DR. ARBUTHNOT.

      London: Printed by J. Wright for Lawton Gilliver at Homer's Head in Fleetstreet, 1734. [iv], 20 pages of text. Page 20 mis-numbered as 30. Circa 1950 hardcover binding of ordinary paper-covered boards with minimal shelfwear and soiling. Title page with minor ink staining along top edge, not affecting text. A few tiny stains and smudges to text. Final page of text slightly to moderately soiled, not affecting text. First edition, first printing. Rothschild 1623. Page height 12+7/8 inches. The poet's apologia, his blasting conclusion to the warfare upon his enemies, the Dunces...In publishing the Epistle, he sought no cloak on anonymity. Previously he had done so, partly through fear of consequences and partly, it would appear, because of a feeling that the inferior social status of his adversaries would derogate from his own dignity if he placed his own name to his attacks. But when Lord Hervey and Lady Mary Wortley Montagu joined the ranks of his enemies, he could afford to accept battle with them openly." --Griffith 352. Alexander Pope (1688-1744).. First Edition.

Kopergravure vervaardigd door Jan Wandelaar. 10 bladen, gemonteerd op linnen, tussen (de originele) houten ophangstokken. Uitgegeven tussen 1734-1755. Afm. (kaart) ca. 130 x 182 cm. Later met de hand gekleurd.Van Jan Wandelaar (1690-1759) die de kaart getekend en vervolgens gegraveerd heeft, is geen ander kartografisch werk bekend. Hij werkte in Amsterdam en staat bekend als tekenaar, graveur, schilder, schrijver en kunstverzamelaar. Het is niet aan te nemen dat hij het meetwerk in het terrein voor de vervaardiging van deze kaart heeft verricht. Gezien de inhoud van de kaart, met zo nauwkeurige kavelstructuur (inclusief de aanduiding van oppervlakte en eigenaarsnaam), moet er een bekwame professionele landmeter bij betrokken zijn geweest.Rechtsboven, onder de beschermende vleugels van een zeearend, de wapens van de 12 dijkgraven van 1679 tot 1734, bejubeld [uiteraard] door een zestal putti?s. Links onderaan de kaart, is naast de zuil met de wapens van de districten van het hoogheemraadschap, behalve Neptunus in een woelige zee, de oude Diemer dijk met zgn. paalschermen afbeeld.De vroegere Zuiderzeedijken waren veelal afgezet met deze paalschermen die de dijken tegen de golfslag moesten beschermen. Deze methode werkte bevredigend tot het moment dat de paalworm zich in 1730 begon te vertonen. Dit beestje moet in de romp van schepen ge?mmigreerd zijn en vond in de honderdduizenden Nederlandse dijkpalen een ideale verblijfplaats. Deze paalworm werd in november 1732 opgemerkt in het paalwerk van de Diemerdijk en de dijk ten oosten van Muiden. De zomer daarop waren vele palen totaal doorgevreten. Insmeren met traan, hars en boekdrukkersinkt mocht niet baten. De dijkvernieuweing was daarmee acuut geworden. Links op de voorgrond liggen stenen en gereedschappen klaar, er rijdt al een kar met stenen de dijk op. Rechts onderaan de kaart is de nieuwe stenen dijk (voltooid in 1737) afgebeeld.Door de veelheid aan gegevens, zowel prekadastraal als topografisch en kustmorfologisch (oude dijkdoorbraken zijn weergegeven, grondsoort en diepte van de zeebodem vlak tegen de dijk aan zijn vermeld, met jaartallen erbij) is de kaart een rijke bron voor de historische geografie.Literatuur: Marijke Donkersloot-de Vrij ?De Vechtstreek.
