        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).

Rare ouvrage qui, bien qu’anonyme, fut écrit par DE GARSAULT et qui compte parmi les plus rares de sa très riche production. Bien qu’il présente cette oeuvre comme une traduction d’Andrew SNAPE, maréchal de la cour de Charles II, il semble qu’il ait pris quelques libertés avec le texte initial, et se soit surtout servi des planches de l’anglais pour en dessiner sa propre version. Les illustrations concernant l’anatomie du cheval ont toutes été copiées par SNAPE sur l’anatomia del cavallo de RUINI puis ensuite redessinées par DE GARSAULT comme en atteste la mention "F. A. Garsault fecit" figurant en bas de la première placée en frontispice. Mennessier: I, 525-526 * Quérard: III, 269. Deuxième édition, aussi rare que l'originale, "avec un frontispice nouveau" précise Mennessier de La Lance.

        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. Hardcover. Very good condition. Folio.

        Zeeburg en Diemerdijk - wandkaart Jan Wandelaar.

      WANDKAART VAN HET LAND TUSSEN AMSTERDAM EN WEESP?Kaarte van alle de Dijkpligtige en eenige Waalpligtige Landen behoorende onder het Hoogheemraadschap van den Zeeburg en Diemerdijk??. 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. Oude kaarten en de geschiedenis van het landschap??, nr. 31.Prijs: ?7.500,- (gemonteerd op linnen tussen stokken, BTW margeregeling).

His collection also included some fantasy animals, intended to attract attention and interest, such as a seven-headed hydra.

Uitgegeven ca. 1734 te Amsterdam door Gerard van Keulen. Gravure van 2 koperen platen gedrukt. Deels in de tijd, deels later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 51 x 114 cm.De in 1602 opgerichte Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie verwierf het monopolie op de vaart naar Indi? via Kaap de Goede Hoop en de Straat van Magelhaen. De V.O.C. verkreeg het recht een eigen leger en vloot te houden en recht te spreken, kortom zich buiten de Republiek als een eigen soevereine natie te gedragen. Batavia werd de grootste stapelplaats voor koloniale waren, waar de scheepsruimen voor de jaarlijkse retourvloot werden volgestouwd. Vanuit Batavia vertrokken schepen op ontdekkingstochten, o.a. naar de kusten van Australi? en Nieuw-Zeeland. Het cartografische materiaal dat deze tochten opleverden werd verzameld door de kaartenmaker van de V.O.C. in Batavia. Daar moet ook de manuscriptkaart getekend zijn die het voorbeeld is geweest voor deze door Gerard van Keulen gemaakte kaart van Java.Prijs: ?7.500,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).

Erste Auflage! - "In Deutschland hat sich die Ohrenheilkunde ebenso wie andere Sonderzweige der Medizin erst um die Mitte des vorigen Jahrhunderts eine eigene Stellung als Spezialfach erworben. Die wissenschaftliche Grundlage haben ihr eine Reihe von Älteren Anatomen und Klinikern gegeben, die dem Gehörorgan besondere Aufmerksamkeit schenkten und sich mit otiatrischen Studien beschäftigten. Hervorragende Physiker förderten die Lehre von der Akustik und gaben uns damit die Mittel in die Hand, die Diagnostik der Hörstörungen auszuarbeiten. Nach beiden Richtungen hin, im praktischen wie im theoretischen Sinne, muss Berliner Gelehrten ein wesentlichen Anteil an der vorbereitenden Ohrenheilkunde zuerkannt werden." - "So hat schon der Anatom Cassebohn, der im Jahre 1743 in Berlin starb, wichtige Arbeiten über die Bildung des äusseren Gehörorganes geschrieben und sogar eine Zergliederungstechnik des Felsenbeines angegeben." A.Passow, Die Ohrenheilkunde in Berlin - - Diese 6 Traktate sind ein Hauptwerk der Otologie. Die von dem Studenten Petsche gezeichneten Tafeln gehören zu den besten seiner Zeit. - Johann Friedrich Cassebohm (1699-1743) was one of several eigtheenth century German anatomists who, inspired by the achievements of their Italian counterparts (Valsalva, Cotugno, Casserio et al.), made significant contributions to the study of the anatomy of the ear. His six treatises on the ear, representing the complete results of his researches, contained much new and revised information on the organ of hearing, particularly regarding the middle ear. The first five treatises deal with the temporal bone, outer ear, tympanic cavity, contents of the tympanic cavity, and the labyrinth; the sixth describes a monstrous "double ear" taken from a malformed six-month-fetus. Cassebohn's discussion of the temporal bone contained the first precise and detailed account of its structures, and he anticipated Cotugno in his knowledge of the two recesses in the labyrinth's vestibular sacs. He also gave an excellent account of the changes that the ear undergoes in the fetus, the infant and the aged. Cassebohm's studies of the embryonic ear far surpassed his predecessors, including Valsalva and Morgagni, and were themselves not surpassed until the work of Huschke and von Baer. - Rare - both the Bibl. Walleriania and Heirs of Hippocrates list only the first four tracts. - Garrison & Morton No. 469.1 + 1547; Politzer, Gesch. Ohrenheilk. I, pp.297-301; Seilers Coll. 12; Norman Col.

Afm. 51 x 114 cm.De in 1602 opgerichte Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie verwierf het monopolie op de vaart naar Indi? via Kaap de Goede Hoop en de Straat van Magelhaen. De V.O.C. verkreeg het recht een eigen leger en vloot te houden en recht te spreken, kortom zich buiten de Republiek als een eigen soevereine natie te gedragen. Batavia werd de grootste stapelplaats voor koloniale waren, waar de scheepsruimen voor de jaarlijkse retourvloot werden volgestouwd. Vanuit Batavia vertrokken schepen op ontdekkingstochten, o.a. naar de kusten van Australi? en Nieuw-Zeeland. Het cartografische materiaal dat deze tochten opleverden werd verzameld door de kaartenmaker van de V.O.C. in Batavia. Daar moet ook de manuscriptkaart getekend zijn die het voorbeeld is geweest voor deze door Gerard van Keulen gemaakte kaart van Java.Prijs: ?7.500,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).

        Nuova et esattissima descrizione del Regno di Napoli colle sue XII provincie data in luce da Antonio Bulifon l'anno 1692

      1734. La carta è disegnata ed incisa da Francesco Cassiano de Silva, inserita nella seconda edizione dell' Atlante geografico interamente concepito, disegnato ed inciso nella città di Napoli. Interessanti sono le vicende che portarono alla pubblicazione di questa rara seconda edizione, infatti: i rami delle carte inserite nella prima edizione dal titolo "Accuratissima e nuova delineazione del Regno di Napoli con le sue provincie distinte..." pubblicata nel 1692, a cura di Antonio Bulifon, andarono dispersi durante l'occupazione di Napoli da parte degli Austriaci nel 1707. Solamente il fortunoso ritrovamento degli stessi nel 1734 ad opera diLuigi Bolifoni (nipote di Antonio), rientrato a Napoli al seguito di Carlo di Borbone, permise la pubblicazione di questa edizione dedicata al nuovo Re.

        A Complete History of the Wars in Italy; containing a particular account of all the battles, sieges, &c. Likewise a true relation of the most secret intrigues and negotiations of the courts of France, Spain, Germany, and Savoy. Interspersed with variety of entertaining amours and original letters of the several Princes concerned. Also the political intrigues of the late King of Sardinia, containing an account of the ill treatment of Mr Phelippeaux the French Ambassador at the Court of Turin, contrary to the Law of Nations. Translated from the original French of Count Bonneval, now in great esteem at the court of the Grand-Seignior, by J. Sparrow, Gent. With a correct map explaining the seat of the last and present war in Italy.

      Printed for W. Mears. 1734 [16], 376pp, engraved folding map bound as a frontispiece. 8vo. Some sl. worming to blank lower margin from page 253, single hole to page 301 then sl. more noticeable. Handsome full contemporary calf, gilt panelled spine, red morocco label. F.e.ps pasted down on to boards.ESTC T139730, the first English edition, and indicating that the author is not Count Bonneval. A second edition was published in 1736, under the title, Memoirs of the Famous Bashaw Bonneval. Our research indicates that the translator J. Sparrow also appears to be fictitious; ESTC records 'Sparrow' as author of A New English Dictionary in 1739, noting that the name is a pseudonym for Benjamin Norton Defoe. Benjamin, a hack writer, is thought to be the illegitimate son of Daniel Defoe, although the evidence is inconclusive.

        Dictionaire Historique et Critique Par Mr Pierre Bayle Cinquieme Edition Revue, Corrigee et Augmentee de Remarques Critiques, Avec La Vie de L'Auteur, Par Mr. Des Maizeaux [Historical and Critical Dictionary]

      Par La Compagnie Des Libraraires, Amsterdam 1734 - 5 Folio Volumes. The fifth and best edition of Bayle's dictionary in five large folio volumes incorporating Des Maizeaux' biography of the author. Bound in French contemporary calf. six spine compartments, labels absent; an armorial design in gilt to the upper cover of each book, surmounted by a coronet with nine pearls denoting the crest of a French comte. Marbled endpapers with an eighteenth century bookplate with the motto 'Esse Quam Videri'. The bindings are dry and worn with flaky leather but sound and usable. Each title page has a vignette by Jan Schenk and there is an early ownership inscription to every volume on the title page which has been crossed through. Internally the books are in very good condition. Bayle's biographical dictionary is seen as a forerunner of the work of the French Encyclopaedists but could not itself be published in France due to Bayle's Huguenot origins. This fifth edition is considered to be the best and formed the basis for all subsequent reprints. Alexandre Laumonier notes in his 2015 preface to a selection from the dictionary: 'Pierre Bayle continuera ensuite à corriger ses propres erreurs, jusqu'à la cinquième édition du Dictionnaire en 1734, considérée comme l'édition définitive (les éditions suivantes sont soit des copies, soit ne comportent pas la mise en page originelle).' These books will require additional payment for shipment outside Europe. Please contact Christian White at Modernfirsteditions if you would like more information. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
