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 In 1735 it was reissued with the hitherto unpublished work on Egypt.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.

        Seba, Albertus - Shells.

      SCHELPEN: TONNETJES EN HELMSLAKKEN uit de Indopacific en westelijke Atlantische OceaanIn de tijd met de hand gekleurde kopergravures uit de zgn. 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. Prijs: ?1.350,- (incl. lijst).

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.

        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). (ODNB). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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.

Tagli a spruzzo. Impresa tipografica incisa su rame ai frontespizi con paesaggio sul cui sfondo si stagliano dei monti (allusione al cognome dello stampatore) e motto Conven ch' uom poggi entro cartiglio, il tutto entro cornice istoriata con grottesche e con festoni vegetali. Antiporta allegorica al primo vol. incisa su rame da Antonio Luciani da invenzione di Domenico Maria Fratta (figure allegoriche del Tempo e della Fama, putti che sorreggono un cartiglio con la titolazione). Dedica a stampa ad Eugenio di Savoia. Capilettera istoriati. Ampi indici in fine di ciascun volume.

Qualche piccolo lavoro di tarlo al vol. decimo. I tasselli del decimo e dell'undecimo vol. sono in parte persi. Ottimo esemplare. Nitida e corretta edizione veneziana settecentesca delle opere complete del Tasso, fra le migliori impresse nel corso del XVIII secolo. L'edizione (col frontespizio del primo volume, impresso in realtà nel 1722 dal veneziano Carlo Buonarrigo, con mutata data e mutata indicazione editoriale, in quanto le giacenze dell'edizione erano state rilevate dal Monti, che proseguì e portò poi a compimento l'edizione) fu curata (ad eccezione del primo volume, curato da Giuseppe Mauro) da Anton Federigo Seghezzi, che seguì in genere l’edizione di Firenze, 1724, aggiungendo però un buon numero di Lettere del Tasso, a lui comunicate dal Muratori, ed altri scritti riguardanti il Poeta" (Raccolta Tassiana, n. 7). Raccolta Tassiana, cit.: "G. Mauro è il P. Bonifazio Collina. La Raccolta non andò oltre il 1° vol.; la pubblicazione delle Opere del Tasso fu ripresa nel 1735 da Stefano Monti, che utilizzò questo 1° vol. cambiando semplicemene il frontespizio agli esemplari invenduti; infatti la licenza nel 1° vol. rimase a nome del Buonarrigo, 1722; nel 2° è invece del Monti, 1735. Gli esemplari del vol. 1° che conservarono, come il presente, il frontespizio originale, vennero poi completati anch’essi con i voll. II-XII dell’ediz. Monti" .

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

      London: Printed for W. Innys and R. Manby, 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 InsectsÂ’ ([1714?]) from his premises, ‘next the Green Man near Maggots Brew HouseÂ’ (Bristowe, ‘LifeÂ’, 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 LifeÂ’ 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 NatureÂ’.'Natural History of English InsectsÂ’ 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). (ODNB).

        The chace [chase]. A poem. By William Somervile, Esq

      London Printed for G. Hawkins, and sold by T. Cooper at the Globe in Pater-Noster-Row MDCCXXV [1735] 4to: [12],106,[2]pp, with frontispiece by Scotin after Gravelot of Apollo receiving his lyre and Diana, goddess of the hunt. Contemporary full mottled calf, spine in six compartments gilt, red morocco lettering piece gilt. An excellent, wide-margined copy, collated and complete, expertly recornered, joints skillfully reinforced, head caps rebuilt. Very minor worming to rear end papers and a few adjacent pages, far from any text, with most pages bright and fresh. Printed by William Bowyer, whose records show 750 copies produced. Provenance: engraved armorial bookplate of John West, first Earl De La Warr (1693&1766), to front paste down, and on the front fly leaf the engraved bookplate of the dukes of Gloucester with the order of the garter motto, 'Honi Soit qui Mal Y Pense,' surmounted by a crown. Foxon S562. Near Fine According to the ODNB, Somervile had two major interests, writing poetry and the hunting. Both were united in this, his major work, comprising four books of Miltonic blank verse through which he conveyed the excitement and dangers of the hunt. The poem also traces the history of hunting up to the Norman Conquest and provides all manner of incidental information on kennel design; hare, stag, and otter hunting; the breeding and training of dogs, and dog diseases and bites. It's interesting to speculate on West's association with Somervile, who dedicated this, his major work, to Frederick, prince of Wales. In March,1736, West was sent to Saxe-Gotha to accompany Princess Augusta to England, where she was to become Frederick's consort.

        Journey over Land from the Gulf of Honduras to the Great South-Sea

      , 1735. 1735. COCKBURN, JOHN. A Journey over Land from the Gulf of Honduras to the Great South-Sea. Performed by John Cockburn, and Five other Englishmen.... London: For C. Rivington, 1735. viii, 349, [3] p. Folding map. Contemporary sprinkled calf, very skillfully rebacked with entire original spine and label retained. A lovely copy, the text clean and fresh and entirely unfoxed. Wolfgang Herz copy, with his small book label. First edition. Cockburn was an English seaman who had sailed to the coast of Central America in 1731. His ship was boarded off the coast of Honduras by the Spanish authorities and the crew taken to Puerto Cavalho. From there, accompanied by five other seamen, he made his way across Central America to the Pacific coast. The journal, highly popular at the time, was reprinted three more times before 1800. It was originally thought to be fictitious because of the excessive privations Cockburn described. Today it remains one of the few accounts by foreign travelers through Central America in the first half of the eighteenth century. Annexed to the work is a quaint account of the travels of Nicholas Withington. Hill 324; Sabin 14095; Griffin 2530.

        Autograph Note Signed 'Francois' (1708-1765, Duke of Lorraine, 1729-1737, husband, 1736, of Maria Theresia of Austria, from 1737 Grand Duke of Tuscany and from 1745 Holy Roman Emperor)

      1735 - in his somewhat phonetic French, with transcription and translation, to an unnamed minister or secretary, saying "I want you to come and see me as soon as possible", 1 side folio, no place, no date, circa (Transcription) je souet que vous vous randie dabore le plus tos posible chemoy vouslan vous porte francois. (Translation) I want you to come and see me as soon as possible. Wishing you well [?]. Francis. Lorraine, a fief of the German Empire, had currently strong links with Austria. Francis's father had sent him to Vienna in August 1723 as prospective husband for Maria Theresia, then 6 yesrs old, for training and employment in affairs of state. From the handwriting we date the letter to the period when the Duke was attempting to hold on to Lorraine in the War of the Polish Succession (1733-1735, peace treaty 1738). Nominally a civil war, it was largely fought outside Poland. Other powers joined in in their own interests. France seized Lorraine, which she had long coveted, to prevent further Austrian influence on her borders. At the peace it was granted for life to the loser, Stanislas I Leszczynski, father-in-law of Louis XV. In compensation, Francis Stephen was granted Tuscany. France finally got Lorraine in 1766. For his handwriting at this period, see, for example, BL Add MS 32684 f. 10, Vienna, 20th February 1737. His idiosyncratic spelling, such as never writing the 'z' in 'vous vous rendiez' (etc), lasted all his life. Here he begins with 'je souet' ('je souhaite')

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.

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

With a remarkable broadsheet, announcing Monsieur Evert's performance of "verscheide merkwaardige Kunsten" (various remarkable tricks) in an inn during the fair at Malines, includes a list of 13 tricks which he was able to perform.Ad 1: slightly soiled. Ad 2: edges slightly frayed and slightly foxed. Both items in good condition. Artefacts made by "freaks" from earlier centuries are extremely rare and the present drawing is here offered with a broadsheet announcing the extraordinary act.
