        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. 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.

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

        Die göttlichen Schriften vor den Zeiten des Messie Jesus. Der erste Theil worinnen die Gesetze der Israelen enthalten sind nach einer freyen Ubersetzung welche durch und durch mit Anmerkungen erläutert und bestätiget wird.

      Johann Georg Nehr, 1735. First edition of an exceedingly controversial annotated German translation of the Pentateuch. Johann Lorenz Schmidt, a Protestant dissident theologian, here attempted to provide a free translation with commentary in an objective, rational spirit; his work was denounced for naturalistic, Socinian, and anti-typological tendencies as soon as it was published, and Schmidt was arrested in 1737. The printing was handsomely done: the large, clear black-letter text is illustrated with a total of => 13 copperplate vignettes (including Adam and Eve along with other textually appropriate scenes), most signed by Martin Tyroff. Although the present volume was intended to be the first portion of a complete Bible translation, no more was ever published. Searches of NUC and WorldCat locate fewer than a dozen copies in U.S. libraries. Provenance: Ex-Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School library (properly deaccessioned).

        London Almanack for the Year of our Lord 1736

      Company of Stationers, London 1735 - (24)pp. Entirely engraved, with a four-page panorama of London from the South Bank of the Thames, sweeping across the city from St. Paul's Cathedral on the left to London Bridge on the right, with a host of church spires reaching above the buildings below. The series of London Almanacks by the Company of Stationers has an over 200-year history, briefly preceded by the Calendarium Londinense Verum, or Raven's Almanack, and continuing under the London Almanack name from 1690 through the early 1900s. Although earlier years had other illustrations, the earliest Almanack to include a London view, according to Bondy, is this 1736 edition. For a publication in which the contents and format remained basically unchanged from year to year, the introduction of this London view was a major and welcome change, as the feature became a highlight of the Almanack for the rest of its run. This panoramic scene was only included in the normal and double-size almanacs, and not in the finger or smaller variations. These views were different every year, and, according to Bondy, "provide a fascinating record of London's buildings including a number erected just before publication date." Bound in the original hand-painted paste-paper covers, with an image of Britannia across the spine. A very rare example of an early and important Company of Stationers almanac, with no recorded copies in OCLC. (Welsh 4543; Bondy, pp. 39-41; Spielmann, pp. 2-4, 107-109; See Bromer/Edison, pp. 93-94). (2 by 1 3/16; 50 x 31mm).

      - Cf. Berlin Kat. 1735; Honeyman 2444, 2445; Poggendorf II, cols. 399-400; Sotheran, Second suppl. 2158-2159. Ninth edition of "one of the most popular German works on surveying" (Sotheran). Johann Friedrich Penther (1693-1749), professor of mathematics and economy at the university of Göttingen) deals with geometry and its application in surveying. He discusses the instruments used, such as rules, compasses, graphometer, geometrical circle, geometrical table, surveyor's level pole, and shows how to calculate the size of differently shaped surfaces, circles, cones and cylinders, how to draw multiple-angled surfaces, circles, etc., how to calculate distances in flat areas and mountainous terrain, how to divide a piece of land, how to draw a fortification, etc. The Zugabe deals with the calculation of the contents of cones and cylinders. This knowledge is applied to tunnels, architecture (sloping walls, arches, etc). Penther also includes his design for a surveyor's level pole. Each subject is accompanied by a folding engraved plate showing measuring instruments, geometrical figures, maps of lakes, roads, estates, architectural structures, etc. Penther's lucid style and the attractive illustrations made his work very popular and it went through nine editions (see Sotheran, who states there were eight editions). With owner's inscription. Small corrosion hole in frontispiece and pl. 36, wormhole in upper right corner throughout, slightly affecting upper right margin of the plates, some browning. Nevertheless a good copy with the plates in good condition.

Legatura in piena roano maculato. Torna nervi decorati. come Allegato all'Avana marocco. Un wormhole coda. Tracce di attrito. Buona copia. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, attribuée à Bougeant selon Barbier (IV, 1091). Page de titre en rouge et noir. Reliure en pleine basane mouchetée. Dos à nerfs richement orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin havane. Un trou de vers en queue. Traces de frottements. Bon exemplaire. La Romancie est le pays des romans. Le prince qui été élevé par la lecture des romans depuis son plus jeune âge est à la recherche de ce pays utopique qu'il finit par découvrir sous la terre. Toutes les choses décrites, arbres, rochers, sont contaminés par ce qu'on trouve dans les romans, ainsi les rochers sont tendres tellement ils ont écoutés des complaintes de héros... Le voyage merveilleux est en fait une critique d'une très fine intelligence sur le romanesque du XVIIe siècle, car l'auteur n'entreprend jamais une critique de fond, il a écrit un roman de voyage sur le pays des romans qui en découvre les ridicules et les excès, et il est vrai qu'une certaine production romanesque du XVIIe donne souvent raison à l'auteur avec sa cohorte de bergers, de héros antiques, et de fées.

        Voyage to Abyssinia

      London: Printed for A Bettsworth and C Hitch, 1735. xii+396=[8 contents] pages with tile-page printed in red and black. Small octavo (7 3/4" x 5") bound in full period leather with raised spine bands and red labels in gilt, gilt decoration to spine and ruled edges in gilt of boards, page ends marbled. Edited by Samuel Johnson. Translated from the Portuguese by Joachim le Grand. First English edition, first printing.Jeronimo Lobo, a Jesuit missionary, was born in Lisbon, and entered the Order of Jesus at the age of sixteen. In 1621 he was ordered as a missionary to India, and in 1622 he arrived at Goa. With the intention of proceeding to Abyssinia, whose Negus (emperor) Segued had been converted to Roman Catholicism by Pedro Paez, he left India in 1624. He disembarked on the coast of Mombasa, and attempted to reach his destination through the Galla country, but was forced to return. In 1625 he set out again, accompanied by Mendez, the patriarch of Ethiopia, and eight missionaries. The party landed on the coast of the Red Sea, and Lobo settled in Abyssinia as superintendent of the missions in Tigre. He remained there until death deprived the Catholics of their protector, the emperor Segued. Forced by persecution to leave the kingdom, in 1634 Lobo and his companions fell into the hands of the Turks at Massawa, who sent him to India to procure a ransom for his imprisoned fellow-missionaries. In this he was successful, but could not induce the Portuguese viceroy to send an armament against Abyssinia. Intent upon accomplishing this cherished project, he embarked for Portugal, and after he had been shipwrecked on the coast of Natal, and captured by pirates, arrived at Lisbon. Neither at this city, however, nor at Madrid and Rome, was any countenance given to Lobo's plan. He accordingly returned to India in 1640, and was elected rector, and afterwards provincial, of the Jesuits at Goa. After some years he returned to his native city, and died there on the 29th of January 1678. Lobo wrote an account of his travels in Portuguese, which appears never to have been printed, but is deposited in the monastery of St Roque, Lisbon. Balthazar Telles made large use of the information therein in his Historia geral da Ethiopia a Alta (Coimbra, 1660), often erroneously attributed to Lobo. Lobo's own narrative was translated from a Manuscript copy into French in 1728 by the Abbe Joachim le Grand, under the title of Voyage historique d'Abissinie. In 1669 a translation by Sir Peter Wyche of several passages from a manuscript account of Lobo's travels was published by the Royal Society (translated in M. Thevenot's Relation des voyages in 1673). An English abridgment of Le Grand's edition by Dr Johnson was published in 1735 (reprinted 1789). In a Memoire justificatif en rehabilitation des peres Pierre Paez et Jerome Lobo, Dr C T Beke maintains against Bruce the accuracy of Lobo's statements as to the source of the Abai branch of the Nile.Condition:Recased else a near fine copy.

        Histoire de Madame la Comtesse DES BARRES, A Madame la Marquise DE LAMBERT.

      [2], 138 pages. Contemporary full sheep gilt, recently expertly re-backed; red title label. Binding: 134x 83 mm (51/4 x 31/4 inches). First edition. Ink stain on fore-edge, affecting nine leaves, and encroaching, at most, 3mm into the blank margin. Very rare. De Choisy was born in Paris. His father was attached to the household of the duke of Orléans, and his mother, who was on intimate terms with Anne of Austria, was regularly called upon to amuse Louis XIV. By a whim of his mother, the boy was dressed like a girl until he was eighteen, and, after appearing for a short time in man's costume, he resumed woman's dress on the advice--doubtless satirical--of Madame de La Fayette. He delighted in the most extravagant toilettes until he was publicly rebuked by the duc de Montausier, when he retired for some time to the provinces, using his disguise to assist his numerous intrigues. Though he wrote a number of works in his lifetimes, he is remembered for his gossiping Mémoires (1737). Choisy is said to have burnt some of his indiscreet revelations, but left a considerable quantity of unpublished manuscript. Part of this material, giving an account of his adventures as a woman, was surreptitiously used in an anonymous Histoire de madame la comtesse de Barres (Antwerp, 1735) and again with much editing in the Vie de M. l'abbé de Choisy (Lausanne and Geneva, 1742), ascribed by Paul Lacroix to Lenglet Dufresnoy; the text was finally edited (1870) by Lacroix as Aventures de l'abbé de Choisy.

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.
