        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]

        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 geïmmigreerd 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).

        zeekaart van Java - Van Keulen.

      DE V.O.C. OP JAVA - Insulae Iavae pars Ocidentalis Edente Hadriano Relando en Insulae Iavae pars Orientalis Edente Hadriano RelandoZeekaart van het eiland Java, met de rede en de stad Batavia. 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 Indië 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 Australië 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).

Quarto, contemporary full tan crushed morocco gilt, elaborately gilt-decorated spines and covers, raised bands, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Housed in a custom leather-edged slipcase. $13,500.Lovely quarto edition of Moliere’s works in six volumes, beautifully illustrated with frontispiece portrait of Moliere by Coypel and 33 copper-engraved plates after drawings by Francois Boucher, “the most successful painter of the day” (Ray), as well as numerous engraved initials, head- and tailpieces, many also by Boucher. 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.

        An Essay on Man. In Epistles to a Friend.

      London: J. Wilford, 1733 -, 1734. Four volumes in one, small folio; a few upper margins cut close touching one or two page numerals; crushed red-brown morocco gilt by Morrell. A beautifully bound edition of one of the greatest long poems in the English language. Second edition of the first part, the others first editions.An Essay on Man is one of the best known poems by the poet and satirist Pope. It was widely read on publication, and occasioned a response from Voltaire, La Loi Naturelle of 1756. Pope was very attached to the work, and crushed by some of the negative responses it engendered, in particular its demolition by a Swiss professor, Jean-Pierre de Crousaz. Not until the 1735 publication of his Works did Pope firmly claim authorship of the work, commenting: 'If I could flatter myself that this Essay has any merit, it is in steering betwixt the extremes of doctrines seemingly opposite, in passing over terms utterly unintelligible, and in forming a temperate yet not inconsistent, and a short yet not imperfect system of Ethics'. A good set.

        Voyages et Avantures de Jacques Massé.

      Cologne: Jaques Kainkus, c. 1734. Duodecimo, frontispiece, title-page printed in black and red; contemporary sprinkled calf, spine gilt in compartments; bookplate and armorial gilt stamp on front board of F. Lachêvre. A handsome copy of the third edition (Rosenberg edition 'C'), with frontispiece portrait of Massé and title-page vignette of Mercury. Friederich comments that the importance of mining and irrigation to the Australians makes it the only work 'to foreshadow what has actually come to pass in modern Australia'.Tyssot de Patot was a well-known Huguenot free-thinker, whose writings were a continual source of scandal: Voltaire thought that he had 'carried the torch of discord into their homeland'. Certainly the antagonistically anti-religious stance of this novel created much ill-feeling. Atkinson comments that because 'open criticism of the Bible is so frequent' he will have to content himself with listing just a few of the more extreme examples.Massé shipwrecks on the Southern continent at '44 South latitude, almost at the point where Kerguelen Island will be found to be on modern maps' (Atkinson). Whilst most of the survivors of the wreck are content to maintain a large presence on the coast, Massé and his friend Moret travel inland where they settle in an enormous and well-organised utopia, 'a plentiful, fruitful country, a land of blessing and peace ... where human blood is sacred and safe from the rage and tyranny of great men'. They become so enamoured of their Australian hosts that they abjure their faith and their European heritage, and it is only when Moret is betrayed by his liaison with a treacherous queen that they reluctantly flee, escaping rather fortuitously by a subterranean river which deposits them close by the original settlement. They remain besieged in the camp for another twelve years before they are finally picked up by a Portuguese ship.Rosenberg argues for a date of around 1734 for this edition, to coincide with the renewed interest in Tyssot's work at the time (he cites 1733 English and 1737 German editions). His theory is that this renewal of interest 'arose because it was confused with Mandeville's Fable of the Bees which, by 1730, had achieved considerable notoriety'.

        Les Princesses Malabares, ou le Célibat Philosophique. Ouvrage interessant & curieux, avec des Notes Historiques & Critiques.

      'Andrinople: chez Thomas Franco" 1734. Duodecimo, old quarter calf. First edition of this allegorical satire on French society, an orientalist fantasy with Malabar princesses and many of the usual props including sultans and harems. Its author is believed to have been de Longue, an obscure writer who does not make an appearance in Nouvelle Biographie Générale, but it has also been attributed variously to the abbé Lenglet Dufresnoy, and to one Quesnel, who is mentioned in the preface, and who died in the Bastille.This is an odd book, its most curious feature the use of the anagram. Most of the satire remains allegorical (rather than directed at individuals or institutions): thus for example there are critiques of 'Raison' and 'Religion,' but they become 'Rasoni' and 'Roligine.' The subterfuge may seem redundant when the satire is of a concept, but anyway these rather blatant anagrams are explained in a key at the end of the book. Nonetheless, this enigmatic style did not save the book from the fire: its allegorical satire on French society together with its alleged atheism, meant that it was condemned to be burnt by an arrêt du Parlement in 1734, which adds to its rarity. Title page slightly damaged at inner margin; a few stains but a good copy.

See Peignot, Dictionary of condemned books Fire II, p. 53-54. Vintage cardboard. Back smooth threads. Part of title in black morocco. Utopia takes place in India, narrated by an Indian prince. Hindu women, announces the author, were ordered to burn after the death of their husbands. Princesses Malabares found expedient to this system by marrying as many husbands as possible, forcing each man to absolute fidelity. Through a description of the customs of the Malabar Island, the author establishes a satirical criticism of religious systems, tyrant of mankind. It is a curious relationship, where it is mainly ratio between men and women. The tale is full of puzzles and keys (see table of names with solving anagrams) that are not always easy to grasp. The book was burned at the stake by the decision of the Parliament of 31 December 1734. Ironically for a book whose first lines of the preface asserts that "man throws himself naturally [...] on everything that is forbidden ", including books condemned. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
