        Thesaurus linguae Latinae. Editio nova prioribus multo auctio et emandatior.

      Typis & Impensis Sam. Harding 1734-35, Londini - 4 volumes, folio, contemporary paneled calf neatly rebacked, red morocco labels; generally a very good, sound set. A handsome, useable edition of a landmark dictionary, originally published in 1531. The work was a major influence on the early English lexicographers, such as Cooper and Holyoke, among others. "Though the Thesaurus is now superseded, its merits must not be forgotten. It was vastly superior to anything of the kind that had appeared before; it formed the basis of future labors, and even as late as 1734 was considered worthy of being re-edited" (A.A. Tilley). The editors of this edition were four Cambridge scholars: Edmund Law, John Taylor, Thomas Johnson, and Sandys Hutchinson, who dedicated the work to their King, George II. They also provide a complete list of the books published by Estienne's publishing house, filling four folio pages in small type and in double column.

      La Haye (The Hague), Netherlands: Henri Scheurleer, 1734 Original full leather hard cover. Text in FRENCH. From the private library of a Danish family, and in exceptional condition.

        OBSERVATIONS IMPORTANTES SUR LE MANUEL DES ACCOUCHEMENTS. Traduites du latin de M. Henry de DEVENTER [.] & augmentées de Réflexions sur les points les plus interessans ; par Jacques-Jean BRUIER D'ABLAINCOURT.

      1734 - A Paris, Chez Pierre-François Giffart, 1734. Deux parties reliées en un volume in-quarto (200 X 260) veau fauve moucheté, dos cinq nerfs, caissons dorés, pièce de titre maroquin grenat, double filet doré sur les coupes, encadrement de triple filet à froid sur les plats, tranches rouges (reliure de l'époque) ; XL (dont faux-titre et titre), 431 pages, 1 page non chiffrée (liste des auteurs), 37 planches hors-texte. PREMIÈRE ÉDITION de la traduction française de cet ouvrage, ornée de 37 PLANCHES hors-texte gravées sur cuivre, représentant 40 figures. Henrik Van DEVENTER (1651-1739), médecin hollandais, fut le plus grand obstétricien de son époque et il est considéré comme le père de l'obstétrique moderne. Dans cet ouvrage Deventer met en évidence la nature rigide du bassin osseux de la femme pendant le travail de l'accouchement. Il démontre également, par l'examen de plusieurs sujets, que l'épaisseur de la matrice reste la même pendant tout le cours de la grossesse. Il pense que la dépression du coccyx permet d'éviter l'emploi du forceps et, pour les cas les plus laborieux, il préconise la pratique de la césarienne. "This work gives the first accurate description of the female pelvis and its deformities, and the effect of the latter in complicating labour. Van Deventer was the greatest obstetrician of this time, the father of modern midwifery" (Garrison-Morton, 6253, pour l'édition latine de 1701) ; (Waller 2421) ; (Wellcome II, 460) ; (Bayle & Thillaye II, 439) ; (Blake 118). Ex-libris ancien collé sur le premier contre-plat " Vincent Cavallier, Docteur en médecine de la Faculté de Paris " et ex-libris manuscrit sur la page de titre daté " [17]73 ".

        Bishop Brunet's History of his Own Time. Volume I: From the Restoration of King Charles II to the Settlement of King William and Queen Mary at the Revolution. Volume II: From the Revolution to the Conclusion of the Treaty of Peace at Utrecht, in the Reign.

      London: [Vol. 1:] Printed for Thomas WardÉ1714; [Vol. II:] Printed for the Editor, by Joseph DowningÉand Henry Woodfall, 1734. - Bishop Burnet (1643-1715) was a Scottish theologian and historian, educated at the University of Aberdeen. He was associated with the Whig party. His History of his Own Time or "secret history," as he called it, begins in 1683. He worked on it steadily until May, 1685, when he left England for the safety of the continent. He appears to have kept a running account of events in England during the reign of James II from The Hague, where he spent much of his exile. He returned to England after the revolution of 1688, when William and Mary took the throne. He worked on it intermittently from 1691 through 1703. In 1703, having read and admired Jacques-Auguste De Thou's Historia sui temporis, he decided to recast his history, making it less autobiographical and more impartial. He completed his recasting in 1704, and in 1705 resumed his History from when he left off. He worked on it until 1713 and spent the last two years of his life revising the final portions. Though it proved immediately controversial, Burnet's work remains an important sources for the period it deals with, and is admired for its detailed accounts of many events, and for Burnet's attempts to be accurate and fair. Two volumes, folio. [16], 836; [22], 360, 357-765, [1] pp. List of subscribers in each volume. The verso of the title-page in Volume II bears an ink notation: "The Original Manuscript of both Volumes of this History will be deposited in the Cotton Library by G. Burnett [sic]." Contemporary paneled calf. As the two volumes were issued ten years apart, the design of the paneling is slightly different in each volume. Volume I is also slightly larger than Volume II. The bindings, however, are complimentary. Joints cracking or starting to crack, but cords sound. Some scuffing and corner bumps. However, a very good, attractive set. Volume I with the armorial bookplate of Sir Richard Bedingfeld. First edition. We could not identify Sir Richard Bedingfeld, but he was clearly a member of the landed family from Suffolk and Norfolk, whose most famous member during this period was Henry Bedingfeld (d. 1685), who also had Whig leanings and was exiled during the reign of James II. (See the Oxford DNB article on the Bedingfeld family.) [Attributes: First Edition]

        Isola dell'Elba

      Isola d'Elba 1734 - La carta è disegnata ed incisa da Francesco Cassiano de Silva, inserita nella seconda edizione del primo 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. mm 210x312

        MEMOIRES POUR SERVIR A L'HISTOIRE DE LANGUEDOC, par feu M. de BASVILLE, intendant de cette Province.

      1734 - A Amsterdam, Chez Pierre Boyer, 1734. In-12 (109 X 159) maroquin poli fauve, dos quatre nerfs surlignés d'un filet perlé, caissons dorés richement ornés, titre doré, date en queue, double encadrement de filet doré sur les plats, filet perlé sur les coupes (reliure postérieure) ; 334 pages (dont titre imprimé en rouge et noir) et deux tableaux dépliants. Manque de papier sans atteinte au texte dans la marge de la page 115. EDITION ORIGINALE des mémoires du tristement célèbre intendant du Languedoc qui, par ses rigueurs et ses répressions, engendra l'insurrection générale des montagnards protestants et donna naissance à la guerre dite des Camisards, dans les Cévennes. Ces mémoires furent terminés vers 1698. L'auteur donne un état du Languedoc tel qu'il a pu l'observer durant les treize années de son service : la géographie et l'histoire, le Gouvernement, l'ordre intérieur et la province, les Droits du Roy, le commerce, les ouvrages faits ou à faire. Bien COMPLET des deux tableaux récapitulatifs dépliants : "Carte contenant le nombre d'ecclesiastiques, la quantité des Maisons religieuses et Couvents de plusieurs Ordres, & le nombre des Religieux qu'ils contiennent dans la Province de Languedoc." et "Recapitulation du produit du Commerce du dedans de la Province de Languedoc [.]". Nicolas de Lamoignon de BASVILLE (26 avril 1648 - 17 mai 1724), intendant du roi en Languedoc, vécut à Montpellier durant 33 années. Basville fut en Languedoc (1685-1718), comme auparavant en Poitou (1682-1685), le bras séculier du roi Louis XIV dans l'entreprise de "catholicisation" forcée des protestants. Aidé d'une trentaine de subdélégués, Basville appliquait la volonté royale sur les 23 diocèses des deux généralités que comprenait son intendance, celle de Montpellier et celle de Toulouse. A ce titre il devait contrôler des zones géographiques à forte densité de nouveaux convertis douteux ou de fanatiques protestants. On sait que, sous son autorité, la répression fut féroce. Basville reçut une éducation soignée des jésuites du Collège de Clermont (Paris) où il prononça en 1666 sa thèse ("Ex optica et astronomia selecta mathemata"). D'une certaine façon, Basville était donc un scientifique. Basville rédigea les "Mémoires pour servir à l'histoire de Languedoc" dans les années 1696-1697. Ils ont été publiés en 1734, soit dix ans après la mort de leur auteur. Ce travail a été écrit sur ordre du Roi à l'intention du duc de Bourgogne, un de ses proches héritiers. Il fait donc partie d'un ensemble de travaux fournis par les intendants pour la formation et l'information du duc de Bourgogne en réponse à un questionnaire assez précis défini par le duc de Beauvilliers. (Antoine de Falguerolles, "Basville, statisticien solitaire du Languedoc"). BEL EXEMPLAIRE, finement relié, probablement à la fin du XIXe siècle. NICE COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST.

        The South Prospect of Reading in the County of Berks.

      London. 1734 - Size: 400 x 840 mm. Fair condition. Repairs to marginal tears. Toning. Copperplate engraving with later hand colouring. From 1726 to 1742, Samuel Buck (1696–1779) and his brother Nathaniel published an ambitious series of collection of perspective views ("antiquities") in the counties of England and Wales. From 1728 they worked on a parallel project, producing long prospects of all the cities, sea-ports and county towns, usually marketing their town prospects in sets of six. Though the Buck brothers were not the only ones producing views of antiquities and town prospects in the eighteenth century they were much the most prolific. Collectively their engravings provide us with an indispensable record of what English and Welsh towns looked like before the industrial revolution.

        Tab 62

      Amsterdam 1734 - Albert Seba From Locupletissimi Rerum Naturalium Thesauri Amsterdam: Wetsten, Smith and Waesberg, 1734-1755. Hand-colored copperplate engraving with later color 29” x 36” framed Framed in a museum quality frame with archival mounting and UV plexiglass. Albert Seba’s magnificent Thesauri is a catalogue of his personal natural history collection, an immense conglomeration of specimens of a number of exotic plant and animal life. The son of a Frisian peasant who became rich in the service of the Dutch East India Company, Seba was an apothecary practicing in Amsterdam when he began to collect. His scientific interests and curiosity motivated him to amass this collection on a series of travels to the East and West Indies, and from purchases he made of specimens collected by travelers the world over. Many of the snakes, plants, fish and shells illustrated and described in his Thesauri were based on the specimens Seba collected in this “cabinet of curiosities.” In fact, many of the extravagant designs of the engravings were copies of the arrangements of the specimens in the drawers of his cabinet and the walls upon which he hung his collection, which in this way became a sort of predecessor of the modern museum. The collection was a valuable source to European natural historians, many of whom would not have had the opportunity to travel to the far flung destinations where the specimens originated. It is documented, for example, that Carolus Linneas visited the collection when he was in Amsterdam. These fine engravings made Seba’s unparalleled collection accessible to a much wider spectrum of enthusiasts, and modern viewers, too, can appreciate the stylized compositions and near-abstract quality of their stylized, fanciful compositions.
