      Cat NHSM, pp. 925-926; Sloos, Warfare 09118 bis, 09163, 09169; cf. Sabin 28333 (French ed. of ad 1). Three first editions of works on naval tactics and accounts of battles between the English and French fleets in the West Indies, written (2 & 3) or translated (1) by Jan Hendrik van Kinsbergen (1735-1819), the famous Dutch admiral. Ad 1: An account of the British Admiral George Rodney's defeat of the French at the Battle of the Saintes in the West Indies in 1782, written by Count F.J.P. de Grasse-Tilly (1722-1788), the commander of the French fleet (who was imprisoned by Rodney), with extensive descriptions of naval tactics. Ad 2: An unusually early discussion of military psychology, namely an argument that a naval officer needs to understand the ''human heart'' of his soldiers. Ad 3: An account of the naval battles and tactics of the French and English fleets in the West Indies.Sloos describes a "large paper copy". If copies were produced on large and small paper the present copy must also be on large paper, for it has margins of about 8 cm at the fore-edge and foot. With a hole restored in first title-page, an occasional small marginal tear or water stain in the folding maps, and toward the end a few marginal browned patches, but otherwise in very good condition. Binding scuffed and the hinges of the binding have been reinforced. Most of the tooling remains clear.

        Lettres d'un cultivateur Américain addressées à Wm. S.on Esq. depuis l'Année 1770 jusqu'en 1786.Paris, Cuchet Libraire, 1787. 4 volumes. 8vo. With 3 full-page engraved title-pages with engraved vignette, 1 full-page engraved frontispiece, 5 folding engraved maps, 3 engraved plates, 2 full-page and 1 folding. 19th-century half dark blue morocco, top-edges gilt.

      - Howes C-883; JCB 3122; LeClerc 860; Sabin 17495. "Best French edition and most compete of all editions" (Howes); second French edition of a famous collection of captivating letters on 18th-century life in America. Michel-Guillaume Jean de Crevecoeur (1735-1813), who wrote under the name of Hector St John, was born in Normandy. He arrived in the New World in 1754 and explored the region of the Great Lakes and the East Coast before marrying and settling on a farm in Pine Hill, Orange County New York, in 1769. He began to write essay-like letters, describing the many opportunities of America, tales of immigrants from different countries, life on the frontier, relations with Indians, life as a farmer, the Amish, slavery, his journey through the Ohio basin, etc. They are characterized by his first-hand experience, his enthusiasm for his adoptive fatherland, his empathy with the plight of the people he meets and the liveliness of his style, giving them a distinct place in the American literature of the eighteenth century. With the bookplates of Josiah Kirby Lilly. Repaired tear in first map and some marginal damage to large folding map before it was mounted onto linen. Good copy.

        Beschryving der nieuwlyks uitgevonden en geoctrojeerde slang-brand-spuiten.

      Amsterdam: Jan Van Der Heiden, 1735. - Folio, original half mottled calf and speckled purple paper over boards, raised bands, gilt spine. [viii], 50, [4] pp., 25 plates (7 double-page and 18 single-page). Second edition of this important work first published in 1690, with the addition of six plates. Jan Van Der Heiden (1637-1712) was a fascinating and talented figure, a highly regarded painter of cityscapes and an inventor. He developed the first street-lighting system in Amsterdam, and his contributions to firefighting technology set the standard throughout Europe for two centuries. The present volume 'provides the most extensive written account of firefighting tactics during the preindustrial era' (Sutton, Peter. Jan van der Heyden 16371712, Yale University Press, 2006 p. 78). The plates, which are not signed, are based on designs by Van Der Heiden, and engraved by various hands. They convey with great power the drama and turmoil of buildings ablaze, as well as the melancholy aftermath. The earliest plates demonstrate the effectiveness of Van Der Heiden's new pumps, as opposed to the older type also shown in use.CONDITION: Good, head of spine chipped, rubbed, but a sound and very appealing copy in its original binding.

        Historia y vida de el Duende Político de Madrid que dá (sic) cuenta de los presentes negocios, y anuncia los futuros de esta monarquía. Escrita puntualmente en los años de 1735 y 1736.

      S.l., n.a. (s. XVIII) - 4º (22,4 x 18,8 cm.) Portada, 2 h. de índice y 331 p. manuscritas por anverso y reverso con clara y legible caligrafía de época sobre fuerte papel azulado. Holandesa puntas de la época, lomo con nervios y tejuelo azul: el duende político de madrid. Cuidada copia manuscrita del periódico político-satírico más representativo de la prensa clandestina del siglo XVIII. La historia de la prensa satírica va muy ligada al propio desarrollo del periodismo desde sus orígenes con las gacetas de los siglos XVI y XVII. La pronta rivalidad de intereses políticos propició una agresiva sátira mordaz en los diarios del siglo XVIII. “El período de aparición del periódico manuscrito clandestino del Duende, objeto de regocijo en las tertulias y de preocupación en la cúpula del Estado, es muy corto. Sale puntualmente cada jueves durante seis meses, desde diciembre de 1735 hasta mayo de 1736; es la época de los preliminares del Tratado de Viena. Si se quiere prolongar la presncia activa del Duende en Madrid, nos pueden servir los papeles sobre la historia de la vida, prisión y fuga del supuesto Duende. Aunque es un texto escrito posteriormente, relata con detalle algunos hechos de 1734, así como las aventuras de la prisión y fuga del Duende. Las peripecias del Duende han dejado huella en la historia de España, no como personaje de primer orden, sino en la forma de abordar el hecho político de una manera original, creando escuela en el periodismo satírico”.

Christopher Browne's monumental wall map of England and Wales.Christopher Browne (fl.1688-1712) was apprenticed to Robert Walton and after his death in 1688 took over his stock. He was not prolific with his production and all material associated with him is scarce. The largest item we know of is this wall map on 15 sheets. The map was first issued by Browne in 1700. The work is hugely detailed depicting cities, town, villages, gentlemen's seats; roads (according to Ogilby) are marked with distances; as are the boundaries of the Anglo-Saxon Heptarchy, counties, dioceses, and judges' circuits. To the sea crossed swords and a small banner give the location and date of significant naval battles. The map would prove to be hugely popular being reproduced several times throughout the first half of the eighteenth century. Several examples are known with both his St Paul's address and that of the Royal Exchange. After 1712 the plates past to Philip Overton and Thomas Bowles.

        Hieroglyphica of Merkbeelden der Oude Volkeren: namentlyk Egyptenaren, Chaldeeuwen, Feniciers, Joden, Grieken, Romeynen, enz. Nevens een omstandig Bericht van het Verval en voortkruypende verbastering der godsdiensten door verscheyde eeuwen.

      Joris Van Der Woude, Amsterdam 1735 - Large 4 to. [18], 455 pp, [20], frontispiece engraving, title and dedication pages with vignettes by J. Wandelaar, 1 headpiece, initials and tailpieces, title printed in red and black, portrait engraving of R. de Hooghe by J. Houbraken, 63 full page engravings by R. de Hooghe, contemporary mottled calf, slightly rubbed, gilt raised spine with modern letter piece, occasional foxing, bookplate on upper pastedown, otherwise a fine copy, edited by Arn. Henr. Westerhovius. Romeyn de Hooghe was an important and prolific late Dutch Baroque, painter, sculptor, engraver and caricaturist. He was skilled as an etcher, draughtsman, painter, sculptor and medalist. He is best known for political caricatures of Louis XIV and propagandistic prints supporting William of Orange. During his career, de Hooghe produced over 3500 prints. He also illustrated books, and his illustrations can be found in some of the most important texts of his period. This work, Hieroglyphica of Merkbeelden der Oude Volkeren, was a well known emblem and source book for classical mythology and its iconography. Historian Simon Schama wrote in the aftermath of the Charlie Hebdo killings of 2015 that: "The first great modern graphic satirist was Romeyn de Hooghe, enlisted by William III at the end of the 17th century in his relentless war to the death with Louis XIV. De Hooghe obliged with sprawling cartoons representing the wars against the French monarch and his allies as a battle between liberty and religious despotism". The iconology in this work deals with classical mythology and Christian symbolism. The editor Westerhovius - a friend of De Hooghe - gives interesting biographical data on the artist in his preface. In the compositions of this book on Jews, Chaldeans, Egyptians and Phoenicians, he mixes the realism with esotericism, allegory, mythology and sometimes a certain delicacy.

Only edition; rare: an apology of Islam and its Prophet, inflenced by the writings of Pococke and Reland, and published a year after George Sale's "Koran", the first English Quran to be translated directly from the Arabic. The anonymous author counts among those "interested in revising 'imposture' theories by recasting Mahomet in a positive, Greco-Roman republican mold - a wise 'Arabian legislator' [.]. [This work,] occasioned by Sale's translation of the Qur'an, suggests that Islam anticipates the Protestant Reformation: Mahomet 'laid the foundations of a general and thorough Reformation, Conversion, and Re-Union in ages to come' (50)" (H. Garcia, Islam and the English Enlightenment, 1670-1840 [2011], p. 256). From the beginning the author cautions that "no disputes ought to be conducted with more temper and moderation than those about religion, but, unluckily, none have been managed with such warmth, bitterness, and inequality" (p. 1); he defends the Prophet against unjust accusations levelled against him by his Christian detractors and closes with the admonition that young British scholars of theology would do well "to apply themselves, among their other exercises, to the study of the oriental tongues, which, upon an impartial survey of the present state of religion, seems to claim much of their attention" (p. 53f.). - Bound with this are eight other English theological works (all first or only editions) concerned with hell-fire and heresies, several written with a decidedly free-thinking slant. Binding severely rubbed and bumped; hinges cracked. Variously browned throughout with occasional staining; contemporary handwritten table of contents on loose flyleaf; second flyleaf clipped with a handwritten title "A Vol. of scarce & curious Tracts" on verso; first title page has 19th century ownership stamp "R.

        Cerro de Cotopaxi nevado como parecio en la el bentazon que hizo el ano de 1743

      Antonio Marin, Madrid 1735 - View. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 8" x 12.5" Beautiful view or diagram depicting the phenomenon of a rainbow as observed by Jorge Juan and Antonio de Ulloa in Pambamarca, Ecuador during their journey to South America. The view includes three illustrations, including the volcanic eruption of snowy hill of Cotopaxi spewing steam and fire and supposed 'phenomenon' of the rainbow. The writers describe this as: While the hill was shrouded in dense clouds, which with the sunrise dissipated and only the tenuous vapors remained in sight. The opposite side where the sun rose on the same mountain, at a distance, it looked like a mirror represented the image of each of us, and centered on our head, made three concentric Irises. The view is in good condition with minor wear along the folds. Lower left margin includes minor wom holes. From Antonio de Ulloa and Jorge Juan y Sanctilla's "Relacion historica del viage a la America Meridional hecho de orden de S. Mag. para medir algunos grados de meridiano terrestre y venir por ellos en conocimiento de la verdadera figura y magnitud de la tierra, con otras observaciones astronomicas." This particular plan is from Part One, Volume Two, containing "Libro VI: Descripcion de la Provincia de Quito. - Indice de las materias y cosas notables contenidas en esta primera parte". Illustration by Vicente de la Fuente. Antonio de Ulloa (1716-1795) was a Spanish explorer, author, and politician considered one of the best European scientists of his time. He began his research in South America in concert with the French Academy of Sciences and traveled around the continent for ten years. His Relacion Historia del Viaje a la America Meridional, which he published with Jorge Juan y Sanctilla, provided a detailed geography and natural history of the continent. This view is a lovely example of the work they produced.

Nouvelle édition, considérablement augmentée, par J.C. Delamétherie.Paris, Cuchet, 1792. 2 volumes. 8vo. With 2 engraved plates, one folding, and 7 plates extra added. Contemporary olive sheepskin, modern paper sides.

      Moström 293; Ward 179. Enlarged and highly valuable edition of this important mineralogical work. The first edition of the Sciagraphia consisted of 166 pages, and J.C. Delaméthrie provided the enlargements in the present edition. Torbern Olaf Bergman (1735-1784) was a Swedish scholar, and his book provided the first classification of minerals by their composition, and thus based on purely chemical principles. Bergman's analysis also disproved the widely held "saline principle" in crystallization. The two engraved plates belonging to this edition show equipment and crytaline geometry. The first is engraved by Sellier. The 7 numbered plates, which are extra added in this copy, are also engraved by Sellier, after Fossier, and depict minerals.Very good copy, only very slightly foxed, spine of first volume slightly damaged at top and bottom. Interesting copy of a valuable mineralogical work with 7 extra plates.

Un coin frotté. Nouvelle édition augmentée avec des remarques de Le Duchat. Cette édition, dit Brunet, est préférable aux précédentes ; le 21e chapitre y est en entier. Titre en rouge et noir. 2 frontispices gravés. Le frontispice et le titre de la deuxième partie placés en tête du chapitre XV (p. 201) manquent ; le frontispice de la première partie a été placé par erreur à la suite du titre. Relié à la suite : [LE NOBLE (Eustache)]. Dialogue entre St. Pierre et Jules II à la porte du Paradis. La Doctrine catholique touchant l'autorité des Papes. Sans lieu, 1727. 2 parties en 1 vol. in-8 de 108-165 pp. Cette satire en forme de dialogue, traduite du latin, a été attribuée à Faustus Andrelinus, à Erasme qui l'a désavouée, à Jérôme Balbus, à Coelius Secundus Curio et plus généralement à Ulrich de Hutten. Suivi de : La Doctrine catholique touchant l'autorité des Papes d'Eustache Le Noble, nouvelle édition de l'Esprit de Gerson sous un nouveau titre. L'édition originale publiée sous le titre Le Bouclier de la France ou les Sentiments de Gerson et des Canonistes? parut en 1691. « C'est dans l'Esprit de Gerson que les procédés et la stratégie polémiques de Le Noble acquièrent leur plus grande force de percussion : les fragments d'histoires des papes et des rois, soumis à tout un travail de mises en parallèle, de simplifications narratives, de télescopages de l'échelonnement immense et lent des siècles, travail qu'on pourra trouver ailleurs chez lui, assurent à l'argumentation de tout l'ouvrage une forte cohésion. Ainsi aux libéralités des rois de France de Pépin le Bref à Louis le Débonnaire, offrant aux papes des états en toute souveraineté, des largesses et une protection efficace, répond en guise de reconnaissance, ce que le texte ne manque pas de souligner, la politique anti-française des Boniface VIII, Jules II, Sixte-Quint et Grégoire XIV » (Hourcade, pp. 215-216).

First collected edition; BLC cites an issue of the same date but with different title pages. ALPINUS, Prosper (1553-1617) was an Italian physician and botanist who graduated from Padua and travelled with the Venetian Consul Giorgio Eno through Greece, Crete, and Egypt from 1580 to 1583. During these three years he worked as a medical advisor and took the opportunity to carry out botanical investigations. First printed in 1591, this work on Egyptian medicine gives the first European recognition of the medicinal value of coffee and introduced banana and Baobab. "De Medicina Aegyptiorum": An important work on the practice of medicine in Egypt. "One of the earliest European studies of non-Western medicine. Alpini's work dealt primarily with contemporary (i.e. Turkish) practices observed during a three-year sojourn in Egypt. These included moxibustion--the production of counter-irritation by placing burning or heated material on the skin--which Alpini introduced into European medicine . Alpini also mentioned coffee for the first time in this work" (Norman). Adams A-802; Cushing A146; Garrison-Morton 6468; Harvard/Mortimer Italian 16; Heirs of Hippocrates 240 (1646 edn.); NLM/Durling 178; Norman 39; Osler 1796; Waller 12509; Wellcome 232. This work combines two of Alpinus’s major contributions from his exploration to Egypt as physician and avid naturalist. Alpinus had received his training in medicine at Padua and eventually became director of the Botanical Garden. His meticulous and copious notes and collections that he made wherever he touched ground during his travels to and in Egypt resulted in a number of publications. This is the third, which deals with botany as well as natural history of animals. Although the botanical information here, the first scientific study of Egyptian plants, was first published in 1592, the present posthumous work has been supplemented with notes and observations of Veslingi. (Pritzel, 113). Johann Vesling, who succeeded Alpinus as director of the botanical gardens at Padua, edited the work with notes and observations and reprinted it with several others, 1638-40. In 1735 it was reissued with the hitherto unpublished work on Egypt. Prospero Alpinus (also known as Prosper Alpini, Prospero Alpinio, and Prosper Alpin) spent three years in Egypt.

Thesaurus van Albertus Seba, uitgegeven te Amsterdam tussen 1735-1765.Albertus Seba (1665 - 1736) was een Nederlandse apotheker en verzamelaar. Seba was populair bij zeelieden die in de Amsterdamse haven aanlegden. De door hen meegebrachte exotische planten en dierlijke producten waren de basis voor zijn recepten. Hij ruilde veelal tegen zijn medicijnen en behan-delde de bemanning. Zo kwam Seba aan een enorme verzameling van vogels, slangen, hagedissen, insecten en schelpen. Hij verkocht zijn verzameling in 1725 voor fl. 15.000 aan Peter de Grote en maakt sindsdien onderdeel uit van de Kunstkamer in St. Petersburg. Seba´s Thesaurus was een bijzonder kostbaar werk. Zowel in productie, als in aanschaf. De vele illustraties werden door maar liefst 13 verschillende graveurs in het koper gezet. De Thesaurus vormt een belangrijke registratie van natuurhistorische kennis van het begin van de 18e eeuw en diende zowel als academische leidraad en als decoratieve encyclopedie.

Early calf. · Register: 2º: [A]² a² [a]-[b]² ²a² b-e² B-6I² *6K-N² ²5K-L² 6M-P²; [A]² B² ²B² C-6T² ²4X-5E² ²5F1 ²5G-M² ²6N1 ²6O-T² 6U-Z² a-f² [a]-[c]² [d]1. · Condition: Volume I: joints cracked, corners worn, some scuffs and stains. Volume II: top board detached, back and bottom board scorched, leather defective, leaves of second half of book water stained, sm. hole in 4U2, affecting a few letters; still useable. · Comments: Married set, first volume from second issue, second volume from first issue. The first volume was first published in 1734 and the second in 1735; both were reissued with a new title-page in 1741. ESTC locates only two copies with the 1741 title-page, which changed the name of the publisher from Gosling (who died January 4, 1741) to Woodward, Shuckburgh, and Stagg. The volumes offered here each contain a different four-page list of subscribers. In the second volume, the tables are bound at the rear. The first volume covers "Abatement," "Account," "Audita Querela," and "Action on the Case"; the second volume covers "Covenant," "Debt," "Detinue," and "Prohibition." A third volume on "Quare Impedit" and the rights of patrons was issued in 1737; according to Worrall, it was also sold separately. From the prefaces to the first and second volumes, it seems that publishers had intended that quare impedit would be included, but the length of the title and related matters precluded that. The third volume originally intended to cover replevin, trespass, and waste and general entries, but no such volume was ever published. It is not merely a book of forms, but also a legal abridgment bringing Rolle up to date to the extent not covered by D'Anvers, as well as containing an index to the other books of entries. · Title continued: First volume: "... &c. demurrers, issues, verdicts, judgments, forms of continuances, discontinuances, and other entries, and of entering judgments, &c. in all personal actions: and also all kinds of writs original and judicial." ... "on the several cases in the reports, as well relating to the precedents herein, as to all other cases incident to each particular title; and the same abridg'd and disposed in a methodical order. To which are added references to all the other entries in the books. With three distinct tables, one of the precedents, the second of the cases abridg'd, and the third of the names of the cases. By a gentleman of the Inner Temple." Second volume: "... of pleadings in the courts of King's Bench, Common Pleas and Exchequer, in the several actions of covenant, debt, detinue, and prohibition. From the most authentick books, but chiefly from Lutwich's, Saunders's, Ventris's, Salkeld's, and the Modern Reports; and from other cases lately tried and adjudged, and wherein writs of error have been brought, and judgments affirmed: together with readings and observations on the several cases in the reports, as well relating to the precedents herein, as to all other cases incident to each particular title; and the same abridg'd and disposed in a methodical order. And under the head of judgments in debt is set forth the practice in proceedings on writs of error. To which are added references to all the other entries in the books. With three distinct tables, one of the precedents, the second of the cases abridg'd, and the third of the names of the cases. Vol. II. By a barrister of the Inner Temple." · References: Johnson 140 (3 copies); Worrall 191; S&M 1:273 (100); Holdsworth, HEL 12:355, 358; ESTC T221302 (1741 title-page), T97048 (1734[-1735] title-page)..

        A Natural History of English Insects; Illustrated with a Hundred Copper Plates, Curiously Engraven from the Life, and exactly Coloured by the Author To which are added, Large Notes, and many Curious Observations. By W. Derham

      Printed for W. Innys and R. Manby, London 1735 - [14], [1]-26, [2 index], [100], engraved title vignette, 100 hand-coloured, engraved plates. . HB. 4to, later vellum, ornamental gilt borders and spine, minor chipping to spine labels, light soiling; all edges tinted red, marbled endpapers, some surface damage to front endpaper where a book-plate has been removed. Very occasional light foxing and offsetting. A beautifully preserved copy. The colouring in this copy is more subtle and 'life-like' than is often the case. This copy bears the author's signature to the title-page, 'Eleazar Albin', neatly inscribed above the engraved coat of arms, and its presence may indicate the author had coloured the vibrant plates himself. Albin's manuscript signature authenticated by comparison with relevant original documents at the Natural History Museum, London. 4th edition. The attractive plates illustrate mostly butterflies and moths and their larvae on food-plants. A few plates illustrate other insects. This edition contains the same sheets as the second edition except the type in the text relating to plates I to XXIV has been reset without alteration. Derham's dedication, preface and notes are bound between the list of subscribers and the text. According to Lisney, 'of the five editions of the 'Natural History of English Insects, those published in 1731 and 1735 are undoubtedly much scarcer than the others'.[Lisney: 122]Eleazar Albin (fl.1690-1742) was a naturalist and watercolour painter, the first of the great entomological book illustrators of the 18th century. Very little is known of his early life, he may have been born somewhere in the German states to a family named Weiss. By 1708 he had adopted the surname Albin, had married, and was living in or near the parish of St James's, Piccadilly. Around 1709-10 Albin met Mary, dowager duchess of Beaufort, a keen botanist who encouraged him to begin work on a natural history of insects. The first plates were engraved in 1713 and work proceeded apace until the onset of financial difficulties caused by the death of his patroness in January 1715. Although Albin had by this time already issued Proposals for Printing by Subscription ‘A Natural History of English Insects’ ([1714?]) from his premises, ‘next the Green Man near Maggots Brew House’ (Bristowe, ‘Life’, 82) in Golden Square, subscriptions were slow to come in and as a result the work was not finally published until 1720. Ultimately attracting 170 subscribers, 'A Natural History of English Insects' contained 100 copper plates which were hand-coloured by the author on request. Albin stressed that the insects depicted were copied ‘exactly after the Life’ as he had ‘observed it as a great Fault of those who have gone before me in this Way, that they either did not look often enough at their Pattern, or affected to make the Picture outdo Nature’.'Natural History of English Insects’ is one of the finest British Lepidoptera books, the first to show British butterflies and moths in lifelike poses and full colour (Aurelian Legacy pp.109-110). It is a sumptuous, lavishly illustrated with exquisitely coloured plates intended for the enjoyment and delight of natural history enthusiasts, and for display in aristocratic libraries. Albin further published 'A Natural History of Birds' (3 vols, 1731–8), 'A Natural History of Spiders' (1736), and illustrated (and possibly wrote) 'A Natural History of English Song-Birds' (1737).

        Cerro de Cotopaxi nevado como parecio en la el bentazon que hizo el ano de 1743.

      Madrid: Antonio Marin, 1735. unbound. Vicente de la Fuente. View. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 8" x 12.5". Beautiful view or diagram depicting the phenomenon of a rainbow as observed by Jorge Juan and Antonio de Ulloa in Pambamarca, Ecuador during their journey to South America. The view includes three illustrations, including the volcanic eruption of snowy hill of Cotopaxi spewing steam and fire and supposed 'phenomenon' of the rainbow. The writers describe this as: While the hill was shrouded in dense clouds, which with the sunrise dissipated and only the tenuous vapors remained in sight. The opposite side where the sun rose on the same mountain, at a distance, it looked like a mirror represented the image of each of us, and centered on our head, made three concentric Irises. The view is in good condition with minor wear along the folds. Lower left margin includes minor wom holes. From Antonio de Ulloa and Jorge Juan y Sanctilla's "Relacion historica del viage a la America Meridional hecho de orden de S. Mag. para medir algunos grados de meridiano terrestre y venir por ellos en conocimiento de la verdadera figura y magnitud de la tierra, con otras observaciones astronomicas..." This particular plan is from Part One, Volume Two, containing "Libro VI: Descripcion de la Provincia de Quito... - Indice de las materias y cosas notables contenidas en esta primera parte". Illustration by Vicente de la Fuente. Antonio de Ulloa (1716-1795) was a Spanish explorer, author, and politician considered one of the best European scientists of his time. He began his research in South America in concert with the French Academy of Sciences and traveled around the continent for ten years. His Relacion Historia del Viaje a la America Meridional, which he published with Jorge Juan y Sanctilla, provided a detailed geography and natural history of the continent. This view is a lovely example of the work they produced.
