And to render this work universally usefull & agreeable, [beyond any of its kind] are added in a clear & most compendious method 1. A full & particular description & account of all the cities, borough-towns, towns-corporate & their arms, antiquity, charters, privileges, trade, rarities, &c with suitable remarks on all places of note drawn from the best historians and antiquaries. 139 ff, each leaf fully engraved by Eman.

Bowles, 1734. |~||~||~||~||~| Fourth Edition. John Ogilby's famous road maps of England, originally published in 1675 in a larger folio edition entitled: Britannia: or an Illustration of the Kingdom of England and Dominion of Wales, remains the finest record of the highways and byways of Restoration England. Ogilby's survey was the most accurate to date, he used the new distance of 1760 yards to a mile instead of the old standard of 2428 yards and calculated distances methodically by foot. Due to public demand for Ogilby's accurate strip road maps in a format conducive to travel, smaller versions were frequently re-published, with the present edition being one of the most successful. Thomas Bowles first published Britannia Depicta in 1720 followed by three more editions, with the fourth edition being reissued throughout the eighteenth century until 1764. An all-together elaborate production, with each page entirely and carefully engraved with beautiful borders, coats-of-arms and notations throughout. A very nice copy, sympathetically rebacked with original spine laid-down, margins slightly trimmed on some leafs, recent maroon morocco spine label and endpapers, lacking clasps, some wear to binding extremties.

      World Celestial & Curiosities: Augsburg SEUTTER MATTHÄUS 1734. Copper engraved genealogical plate by Matthaus Seutter from his " Grosser Atlas," Original full colour; verso blank. The image shows a Genealogical tree with a King reclining below; to the left a small tree of the House of Stuart. Seutter shows how the families became linked so that a German became King of Great Britain. Decorative title cartouche, black and white as issued; two heraldic coats of arms. Dark impression; Damage at centrefold where adhesion had caused a tear repaired; light foxing in places. Matthäus Seutter 1(647 ?"1756) One of the most important and prolific German map publishers of the 18th century, engraver, globe-maker and publisher. Born in Augsburg in 1685, the son of a goldsmith. Seutter began his studies in Nuremberg in 1697, apprenticed as an engraver to Johann Baptist Homann. in 1707 later he returned to Augsburg subsequently working in the publishing house of Jeremias Wolff in the city. He founded the Seutter publishing house and print shop in 1710, producing maps, atlases, and globes., which became a primary competitor to Homann. By 1732 Seutter was one of the most prolific publishers of his time and was honored by the German Emperor Charles VI with the title of "Imperial Geographer". Seutter continued to publish until his death, at the height of his career, in 1757. Very few original maps were printed there, as Augsburg at that time had no university and none of the necessary connections to the fields of mathematics or the natural sciences. Therefore Seutter copied the work of other cartographers, making his own engravings based on their models (approximately 500 pieces). His "Atlas Geographicus oder Accurate Vorstellung der ganzen Welt' appeared in 1725 with 46 maps: the "Atlas Novus" various editions in 1728, 1730, 1736, 1742; the "Grosser Atlas" in 1734 with 131 maps, and the pocket atlas "Atlas minor in 1744 with 64 maps. After Matthäus Seutter died in 1757, his son, Albrecht Karl, his son-in-law Conrad Tobias Lotter, and his business partner Johann Michael Probst ran the business for five more years.

Back slightly past. Library Binding, quite rare. Famous pamphlet, particularly violent, against the Book of Bartholomew of Pisa which highlighted the similarities between the life of Jesus Christ and the life of St. Francis.

Nach erstem Unterricht bei seinem Vater, dem Stahlschneider B. Zingg, machte der Schweizer Künstler Adrian Zingg 1753-1757 eine Ausbildung zum Kupferstecher bei J.R. Holzhalb (1723-1806) in Zürich. Danach war er als Stecher in der Werkstatt J.L. Aberlis (1723-1786) in Bern tätig. Mit diesem und dem Berner Medailleur J.E. Mörikofer (1706-1761) reiste der Künstler 1759 zu dem Stecher J.Gg. Wille (1715-1808) nach Paris, zu dessen engerem Freundeskreis Zingg bald gehörte. Mit Ausnahme einer Reise in die Schweiz, 1764/1765, war er bis 1766 in Paris tätig. Durch Wille erhielt er mehrere Stichaufträge nach C. Vernet (1758-1836), C.G. Schütz (1718-1791), C.W.E. Dietrich (1712-1774) u.a. Bereits 1764 wurde er als Lehrer der Kupferstecherkunst an die neu gegründete Dresdner Akademie unter Chr.L. von Hagedorn (1712-1780) berufen. Antritt der Stelle war erst 1766, da er über Bern, Zürich, Augsburg und Nürnberg nach Dresden reiste. Weitere Künstlerfreunde waren C.W.E. Dietrich und A. Graff (1726-1813). 1769 wurde er Mitglied der Wiener, 1787 der Berliner Akademie. 1786 reiste er in die Schweiz. 1803 erhielt er eine Professur an der Dresdener Akademie. Schon 1766 wanderte Zingg durch das Elbegebirge. Besonders in den 1780/1790er Jahren unternahm er Studienwanderungen durch das Elbgebirge, Lausitzer- und Erzgebirge sowie die Meißner Gegend, das Leipziger Flachland, Böhmen, Brandenburg und Thüringen. Hier entstanden zahlreiche Landschaftszeichnungen. 1804 erschien "Adrian Zinggs Kupferstichwerk" (Leipzig, Verlag Tauchnitz). Darüber hinaus veröffentlichte er verschiedene Publikationen für den Zeichenunterricht.

        The Most Up-to-date Record of Ingermanland or Ingria. " Ingermanlandiae seu Ingriae Novissima Tabula

      Europe: Nuremberg Homannianos Heredes 1734. Copper engraved map of Ingria from Johann Bapt. Homann's "Grosser Atlas.". Original full colour, verso blank. The map shows Ingria the area around St Petersburg. Ingria on the Gulf of Finland was a disputed territory for centuries, annexed to Russia by Peter the Great in 1721 at the conclusion of the Great Northern War with Sweden. The region formed a protective land barrier around his new city of St. Petersburg, depicted at upper left, in black & white vignette with war ships [Peter's newly organised navy?] to the foreground; the whole held aloft as if on a tapestry by three putti. Decorative title cartouche at the lower right, surrounded by various sea nymphs paying homage to Posidon, God of the Sea with Aphrodite on her sea shell. Good dark impression; bright and clean ; old ink number to upper right coner; minor soiling to blank margins with light dampstain to upper and lower edges; blue crayon? line to upper left corner just entering plate; minor chips to lower edge. Johann Baptist Homann (1664 ?" 1724) from 1687 Homann worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house. Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as recommendation for potential customers. In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece "Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt" Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, in business until 1848, known as "Homann Erben", "Homanniani Heredes", "Heritiers de Homann" abroad.

        Genealogical tree of the House of Eberhard Ludwig of Würtenburg & Teck. "Dem Durchlaughteigsten Fürsten ubd Herrn, Herrn Eberhard Ludwig, Herzogen zu Würtenburg und Teck Grafen zu Mömpelgard, herrn zu Hiidenheim etc .etc

      World Celestial & Curiosities: Augsburg SEUTTER MATTHÄUS 1734. Copper engraved genealogical plate by Matthaus Seutter from his " Grosser Atlas," Original full colour; verso blank. The image shows a Genealogical tree with a reclining figure below; to the right a vine grows to form the title cartouche, below which sit two allagorical female figureswith a hop garden in the background, surounding them a hunters spoils and geometrical instruments. To the left on the hide of a deer details of the genealogyof the duchy of Würtemburg and Teck The image portrayed by Seutter reflects what we know of Eberhard Ludwig: he became Duke in 1683 at the age of 16, and showed no excessive interest in governmental affairs. Eberhard Ludwig was described by his contemporaries as superficial and easily influenced. Most importantly, his behavior led to the political fate of the land being greatly decided by his council. The duke preferred hunting and left the administration of his county in the hands his advisors. Seutter therefore seems to be commenting on the Duke as well as giving the family tree.

Page de titre en rouge et noir. Reliure en pleine basane brune d'époque. Dos à nerfs richement orné. Pièce de titre et de tomaison (joliment ornée) en maroquin rouge. Mors supérieur du tome I ouvert en tête. 5 coins émoussés. Frottements. Quelques estafilades et rayures sur les plats. Rousseurs sur les trois premiers feuillets de chacun des tomes. Tache brune sur la tranche du premier volume débordant sur quelques feuillets. Assez bon exemplaire cependant, aux jolis dos. Ce conte licencieux et érotique, qui vogue sur la mode de l'orientalisme merveilleux, remporta dès sa parution un vif succès, bien qu'il fit scandale et qu'on accusa l'auteur d'obscénité, d'irréligion ; certains y virent même une critique de la bulle Ugénitus (contre le jansénisme) et le cardinal de Rohan, et Crébillon se vit emprisonné à la suite de ses accusations. Tanzaï est un conte féérique et politique, dont l'étrangeté de l'intrigue surprend toujours le lecteur, toute l'histoire tournant autour d'une écumoire en or au manche énorme. En effet l'inventivité fictionnelle s'exhibe sans retenue dans cette oeuvre de Crébillon fils, elle fit écrire à Voltaire en 1735 : "Je ne sais rien de si fou que ce livre. Si je l'avais fait je serais brûlé". (4) iv-xx (4) 266pp. et (4) 436pp. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Essais de Theodicée sur la Bonté de Dieu, la Liberté de l'Homme, et l'Origine du Mal... Nouvelle Édition, Augmentée de l'Histoire de la Vie & des Ouvrages de l'Auteur, par M.L. De Neufville (Pseudonym)

      Amsterdam: Francois Changuion, 1734. Two volumes in one. Pp. [iv], 245, [1], [2] blank leaf, v-xxxxix, 150; [ii], 375, [1] blank, [12] index. Engraved title vignettes by B. Picart, woodcut ornaments and initials, folding table (vol. II, p. 377-8). Bound in later (eighteenth century) half calf over plain paper boards, ornately gilt spine in compartments between raised bands, red morocco label, marbled endpapers, red stained edges. Extremities a bit rubbed, covers a little bowed, but overall a nice clean, crisp copy. First published in Amsterdam in 1710, this new edition contains the valuable Life of Leibniz and bibliography of his works by Louis de Jaucourt [1704-1779]. Leibniz's "Essais de Theodicée" was the only substantial philosophical work to be published in his lifetime. Although the problem of evil had occupied philosophers from early times, Leibniz was the first to coin the term "theodicy" to describe the task of defending the goodness and omnipotence of God in the face of the existence of evil. His "Essay on Theodicy" was written in response to Pierre Bayle's [1647-1706] assertion that the existence of evil in the world is incompatible with a benevolent and omnipotent God. Leibniz, who regarded the world as the best of all possible worlds, argued that evil provides a necessary contrast in order to highlight the beauty and harmony of the whole. His optimistic view, though brilliantly satirised by Voltaire in "Candide", was shared by many thinkers of the Enlightenment and his ideas contributed greatly to the foundations of 18th-century rationalism.

        Oikonomikos. Oder Xenophon vom Haus-Wesen, aus der Griechischen in die Teutsche Sprache übersetzet von Barthold Henrich Brockes, dem jüngern. Mit einer Vorrede S. T. Herrn Jo. Alb. Fabricii.

      Hamburg, König und Richter, 1734.. Erste Ausgabe dieser Übersetzung. Griechisch-deutsche Parallelausgabe. 4to. (10) Bl., 196 S. Mit gest. Frontispiz. Titelblatt in Rot und Schwarz. Schönes Exemplar. - Schweiger I, 343.In einem 1998 erschienenen Faksimile unserer Ausgabe wird der zu Beginn des 4. Jahrhunderts entstandene Dialog zwischen Sokrates und dem aus den Memorabilien und dem Gastmahl bekannten Kritobulos bzw. zwischen Sokrates und dem Gutsbesitzer Ischomachos als ein Klassiker der Nationalökonomie beschrieben; woanders ist von ihm als einem foundational work in Western economic thought die Rede. In einer englischen Neuausgabe heißt es einleitend: "The Oeconomicus is unique in Greek literature in combining a discussion of the proper management of a family or household and didactic material on agriculture within a Socratic dialogue. One of the richest primary sources for the social, economic, and intellectual history of classical Athens, it has been largely neglected despite the current widespread interest in the subjects discussed."Prominente Interpreten des Werks mit allerdings ganz anderen Deutungsabsichten sind Leo Strauss (Xenophon's Socratic Discourse: An Interpretation of the Oeconomicus, Ithaca 1970), der gegen die Vorurteile des 19. Jahrhunderts die "Greatness of Xenophon" betont und Michel Foucault (Sexualität und Wahrheit, Bd. 2, Kapitel "Das Haus des Ischomachus"). .
