        Situation des deux armeés en bâtaille aruinich le 20 au 21 Octobre 1735':.

      - Aquarellierte anonyme Tuschefederzeichnung, dat. 1735, 32 x 29,5 Manuskript-Karte des Salmstals zwischen Klausen, Hetzerath, Esch und Rivenich mit Einzeichnungen der Truppenstellungen i.J. 1735. - Das Treffen bei Klausen - so wird die blutige kriegerische Auseinandersetzung von 1735 im Salmtal benannt. - Tatsächlich handelte es sich, unter militärischen Gesichtspunkten betrachtet, um eine kleinere, von ihren Ergebnissen her zu vernachlässigende Schlacht zwischen französischen und deutschen Truppen. - Politisch gesehen hatte die Auseinandersetzung enormen Einfluß auf die Friedensverhandlungen des Polnischen Erbfolgekrieges, in den Frankreich und das Deutsche Reich involviert waren. - Die Schlacht fand links und rechts der Salm statt und berührte unmittelbar die Dörfer Rivenich, Esch und Sehlem. - Die Lokalisierung nach Klausen rührt wohl daher, dass der Wallfahrtsort im weiten Umkreis bekannt war, das Flüßchen Salm hingegen nur regional.

        I.er Livre de Pieces de Clavecin Dedié A. S. A. Mademoiselle de Soubise. Prix 9 [livre] en blanc Gravés par L. Hue. Avec Privilege du Roy

      L'Auteur. La Veuve Boivin. Le Sr. Le Clerc, Paris 1735 - First Edition, first Issue. Rare. Lesure p. 155. Gustafson and Fuller: French Harpsichord Music 1699-1780, pp. 112-114, with full inventory of contents. RISM D 1046 (copies in the U.S. at the Library of Congress and the University of California, Berkeley). Louis-Claude [Daquin] was an infant prodigy. After taking some harpsichord lessons from his godmother Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre, and composition lessons from Nicolas Bernier, he was capable of playing before Louis XIV at the age of six and of conducting his own Beatus vir in the Sainte-Chapelle at the age of eight. Daquin was the best virtuoso improviser of his generation, and his published works give only a faint idea of his art. His most elaborate work is the Livre de pièces de clavecin (printed twice, in January 1735 and in 1739). Although some of the pieces (such as L'hirondelle) are more or less direct imitations of François Couperin, most of them display great originality: the Trois cadances, in almost perfect sonata form, owes its title to the triple trill which Daquin was the first in France to use, and Le coucoû is an example of his taste for the single melodic unit which he repeats throughout the piece instead of developing its thematic possibilities. Except for the gavotte in the Plaisirs de la chasse, Daquin's pieces hardly seem to have been influenced at all by Rameau's." Jean-Paul Montagnier in Grove onlineThe Meyer collection, formed over a period of some 75 years, was one of the most important collections of printed music, musical autographs, and books on music.An elegantly printed collection.

Abraham Jacob van der Aa im BWN ("Biographisch Woordenboek der Nederlanden"), Band 20, S. 123 ff: "WESSELING (Petrus), zoon van Gerardus Wesseling en Anna Reiners (volgens een ander Anna Creter), werd den 7den Januarij 1692 te Steinfurt geboren. Tien jaren oud, verloor hij zijn vader, doch door bijstand van zijn oom Wessel Reiners, koopman te Emden, was zijn moeder in staat hem een goede opvoeding te geven. Hij ontving het eerste onderwijs op de Latijnsche school, vervolgens op het gymnasium Arnoldinum, waar hij de lessen van Augustus Houck, J.F.G. Pagenstecher en Arnoldus Visch, in de oude talen en de godgeleerdheid bijwoonde. In 1712 verdedigde hij eene Disp. theologica de petra in Matthaei euang. XVI:18. In dit zelfde jaar begaf hij zich naar Leiden, waar hij de lessen van Jacobus Gronovius, Jacobus Perizonius, Joannes a Marck, Salomo van Til, Franciscus Fabricius en Johannes Wesselius bijwoonde. Twee jaren later bezocht hij de hoogeschool te Franeker, en de lessen van Campegius Vitringa, Ruardus Andala en Albertus Schultens, onder wiens praesidium hij de tweede disputatio de Originibus linguae Hebraei den 30sten Nov. 1715 verdedigde. In 1718 werd hij proponent en prorector aan het gymnasium te Middelburg, en drie jaren later tot rector te Deventer beroepen en toen hij voor die betrekking bedankt had, benoemden hem de regering van Middelburg tot lector in de Grieksche taal en de geschiedenis. In 1723 werd hij te Franeker als hoogleeraar in de geschiedenis in plaats van Rungius beroepen, en hield in 1724 zijn oratio inaugaralis de origine pontificiae dominationis, door dr. Sepp terecht 'een flink historisch betoog' genoemd. Hij telde Willem Karel Hendrik Friso, de beide Scheltinga's, Willem en Onno van Haren, Joh. Stinstra, Petrus Fontein, Petrus Conradi en Saco Harmen van Idsinga onder zijne leerlingen. In 1734 werd hij, in plaats van Duker, tot hoogleeraar in de welsprekendheid, geschiedenis en Grieksche taal aan de hoogeschool te Utrecht beroepen. Hij sloeg dit beroep af, doch, toen hij in 1735 op nieuw door curatoren dezer hoogeschool werd uitgenoodigd om die betrekking te vervullen op eene wedde van f 1600, gaf hij aan hunne roepstem gehoor en aanvaardde den 13 Junij van dat jaar zijn post met eene oratie pro historiis. Zes jaren later sloeg hij de uitnoodiging van curatoren der Leidsche hoogeschool om het hoogleeraarambt aan hunne hoogeschool te vervullen af, en bleef te Utrecht, waar hij in 1745, na den dood van Abraham Wieling, ook tot het onderwijs van het jus publicum Romano-Germanicum geroepen werd. Na den dood van Drakenborch kreeg hij het opzicht over de akademische bibliotheek. Terecht wordt Wesseling voor een der uitstekendste philologen en critici van zijn tijd gehouden, en verdient ten volle den lof hem door Saxe, Bonnet, M. Tydeman, van Goens, en nog onlangs door Boot gegeven. Vele voortreffelijke werken heeft hij geschreven en geommentarieerd, en van vele geleerde genootschappen was hij lid. Hij overleed den 9den November 1764, bij zijne huisvrouw Anna Apollonia, dochter van den hoogleeraar Hermannus Bonnet, twee dochters, Cornelia Elizabeth en Anna Apollonia (zijn zoon was reeds vroeger gestorven) nalatende. Hij gaf, behalve de beide vermelde oratien, in het licht: (...) Vetera Romanorum itineraria, sive Anton. Aug. itinerarium, itinerarium Hierosolymitanum et Hieroclus Synecdemus, Curante. P.W. (...) Ook gaf hij in het licht: Jo Caroli de rebus Casparis a Robles Billaei in Frisia gestis commentariorum libri IV. Leov. ap. Tobiam van Dessel 1751. Sommige exemplaren hebben verkeerdelijk een anderen uitgever en het jaar 1750 op den titel. Hij schreef ook Praefationes voor de uitgaaf der Epistolae Ern. Martinii Hispani. Amst. 1758, en voor Tom III. Thesauri Morelliani. Amst. 1752. Onzeker is het of zijne Oratio de vitiis et defectibus historiae ecclesiasticae in 1735 te Franeker en de statu religionis et reipublicae sub Constantino Magno in 1737, de vera ciortatis felicitate in 1746 en de viro bono cive bono, in 1749 te Utrecht gehouden, gedrukt zijn. Mahne gaf 16 brieven van hem aan Ruhnkenius in het licht: D. Ruhnk. epist. ad diversos, p. 101-133. Boot voegde achter zijn in 1874 te Utrecht uitgegeven werk: de vita et scriptis Petri Wesselingii nog een Epistola T. Hensterhusii aan hem. ..." J. Wetstein & G.

        The Kit-Cat Club Done from the Original Paintings of Sir Geodfrey Kneller.

      - London: Sold by J. Tonson in the Strand and Mr. Faber at the Golden Head Bloomsbury Square, 1735. Folio, (18-3/8 x 12-7/8 inches). Title page by Faber after Gravelot plus 47 mezzotint portraits by Faber after Kneller mounted on thick paper stock, outlined in ink. Without the engraved dedication found in some copies.Each leaf trimmed outside the plate mark. Regency straight-grained red morocco handsomely tooled in gilt and blind. A handful of old and largely inconsequential abrasions on bottom cover with occasional quality repair; backstrip with some rubbing and a little wear at the foot. Bookplates on front pastedown and flyleaf of Frances Mary Richardson Currer (the foremost female English collector) and John Sheepshanks (the great art collector). Like its contents, an aristocratic copy. Very good. Only edition -- perhaps a deluxe copy with superb impressions of the plates and in a lovely Regency binding. When contemplating the career of Jacob Tonson the Elder, one usually considers his status as the greatest publisher and bookseller of his era, reprinting authors such as Dryden and Milton whose works had fallen out of copyright; his 1694 folio edition of Virgil is quite often considered his masterpiece. But he was also the founder of Òthe most famous of all literary clubs,Ó the club which Horace Walpole credited as populated by the Òpatriots that saved Britain.Ó What began as a rather informal congregation of luminaries became Òat its height in the first decade of the eighteenth century, BritainÕs pre-eminent political club and leading promoter and sponsor of the Whig party and its advocacy of contract theories of government, low-church interests, and the rights of religious nonconformists.Ó Neither minutes nor roll call were taken, and were it not for the series Òof forty-eight portraits of club affiliates commissioned by Tonson from the court painter Sir Godfrey KnellerÓ our knowledge of the groupÕs membership would be strained. As it stands today, the members list is impressive: Jacob Tonson, Joseph Addison, William Congreve, William Cowper. Robert Walpole, James Stanhope, Matthew Prior and John Tidcomb, to name a few. The subjects of these portraits usually gifted them to Tonson and the paintings subsequently made their way to the National Portrait Gallery. As evidenced by its distinguished provenance, this copy has very rich early impressions of the plates and is luxuriously bound. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Description géographique, historique, chronologique, politique, et physique de l'empire de la Chine et de la Tartarie chinoise.

      Paris, P.G. Le Mercier, 1735.4 volumes Folio. Contemporary mottled calf (small parts of hinges cracked but firmly holding; extremities of spines sl. damaged), spines ribbed and gilt with red and green morocco labels. With 4 title-pages printed in red and black with title-vignettes, 5 engraved vignettes, 23 engraved plates (10 folding) and 42 double-page or folding engraved maps.First edition of the 'Bible of European sinophilia'. - The most important and comprehensive work on China published up to that time. Du Halde, a Parisian Jesuit, collected and edited the letters of the Jesuit missionaries for this work. The fine plates depict all aspects of China and Chinese life including flora and fauna, engineering, astronomy, etc. The folio edition includes many important maps not previously published before, the maps are the most accurate of China available in Europe at the time. They are by Jean Baptiste Bourguignon d'Anville (1697-1782), the 'finest cartographer of his time'. - 'Historically, this work must be regarded as monumental. Its strenght lies in the vast amount and variety of interesting details, which must have given its readers an impression of the magnificence of the Chinese empire and the wide range of achievements of the Chinese people in literature, science, philosophy and art' (Löwendahl, Sino-Western relations, 394). The first French folio edition is the most desirable and significant. - Some marginal waterstaining and age-browning otherwise a very good copy of a cornerstone of any collection of books on China.Cordier, B.S.,col. 46-48; Lust 16.

        Dickdook Leshon Gnebreet. A Grammar of the Hebrew Tongue, Being An Essay to bring the Hebrew +Grammar into English, to Facilitate the Instruction of all those who are desirous of aquiring a clear Idea of this Primitive Language by their own Studies

      Boston, N.E.: Printed by Jonas Green, and are to be Sold by the Author at his House in Cambridge, 1735. First edition. [4], 94, [2] pp. With a tipped-in broadside of "The Hebrew Grammar at One View, " from Parkhurst's "An Hebrew and English lexicon, " probably the 1762 edition. 1 vols. 4to. Three quarter speckled calf and marbled boards. Light stains on folding table, title-page and following three leaves. Final leaf (containing table of contents) with a one-inch triangular tear in the outer edge, costing about a dozen words. Several instances of early ink marginalia or doodlings. Very good. First edition. [4], 94, [2] pp. With a tipped-in broadside of "The Hebrew Grammar at One View, " from Parkhurst's "An Hebrew and English lexicon, " probably the 1762 edition. 1 vols. 4to. The First Hebrew Grammar Published in America. A landmark in the history of printing in the Americas, this is the first Hebrew grammar published in America, printed from "the first complete fount of Hebrew type in the American colonies" (Eames).  This copy bears the manuscript name, in two places (the upper margin of pages 20 and 94), of Simeon Howard.  Howard (1733-1804) attended Harvard, graduating in 1758.  He was almost certainly a student of Monis and would have used this book as his textbook.  For more than thirty-five years Howard was the pastor of the West Church in Boston, one of the most influential churches in the city.   Hebrew type was first used in the North American colonies in the Bay Psalm Book, printed in 1640 in Cambridge.  Over the next ninety-five years Hebrew type appeared in a handful of American imprints, usually in brief examples of single words or short sentences.  By the 1720s, measures were taken to change this situation.  As Eames explains, "In 1726, Mr. Thomas Hollis, merchant of London, sent over three boxes of Greek and Hebrew types, a present from one of his friends to the Corporation of Harvard College.  Upon examination by Mr. Monis, the instructor of Hebrew in the College, the set of Hebrew types was found to be incomplete, therefore in June, 1728, the Corporation voted to send for so many Hebrew types and points as were necessary to complete the set."   Judah Monis, born in Algiers or Italy in 1683, had settled in Boston by 1720.  In 1723 he was awarded an M.A. from Harvard, and he was the instructor of Hebrew there (though never a full professor) until 1760.  Monis published several works in his lifetime, and though the present grammar was accessible to any educated person, it was produced "especially for the use of the students of Harvard-College at Cambridge."  He attempted to publish the book in 1720 and again in 1726, but was hindered partly by the paucity of Hebrew types noted above.  The book was finally printed in 1735 by Jonas Green, the grandson of Samuel Green, who was the second printer in the British colonies, preceded only by Stephen Day (who printed the Bay Psalm Book).  Jonas Green apprenticed under his father, Timothy Green, himself a noted printer in New London, Ct.  Jonas Green printed a few items in Boston before moving on to Philadelphia (where he worked for Franklin and Bradford) and Annapolis, where he became printer to the colony in the 1740s.  The DICKDOOK... was printed in an edition believed to be a thousand copies, and was used by students at a number of New England colleges, including Dartmouth.   A landmark of American printing history, and of Jewish Americana.

        Geographisch-toneel, of uitgezochte kaarten

      1735. DUTCH POCKET ATLAS. Geographisch-toneel, of uitgezochte Kaarten, tot gemak der Officieren, Reisigers en Liefhebbers. By Johannes Ratelbrand. 15, [1] pp. Illustrated with 40 hand-coloured maps and views. Tall Narrow 8vo., 200 x 83 mm, bound in Dutch contemporary full red morocco, gilt- ruled borders on covers, with gilt-tooled floral vignettes in corners and in spine compartments. Amsterdam: Erven van J. Ratelband, 1735. Very Rare Dutch Pocket Atlas, with all 40 maps coloured by a contemporary Dutch hand. Published for eighteenth-century European travelers and for military officers. The maps are preceded by a folding hand- coloured engraving of "L'Architecture Militaire" that illustrates fortification technique and the many instruments of war in use by European military troops in the first half of the eighteenth century. Johannes Ratelband (II) (1704-1730) was one of the key members of a long dynasty of Dutch printers/book and map sellers in Amsterdam. The firm began with Jansz. Ratelband (1590-1656), who moved from Germany to set up a press and shop in Amsterdam at the beginning of the seventeenth century. The firm flourished uninterrupted until the 1820s, perpetuated by a succession of family members. This Pocket Atlas includes: a world map, continental maps of Europe, Asia, Africa, North America, South America, then more detailed maps of: Germany, Hungary, Transylvania, the Balkans, Bavaria, the Palantine along the Rhine, Basel and Lake Neuchâtel, England, Scotland, Northern and Southern Spain, Catalonia, a large map of Gibraltar, the Strait of Gibraltar, Central America and the Caribbean, Portugal and the Algarve, France, Provence, Languedoc, Moscow region, Crimea, Poland, Scandinavia, Holland and Luxemburg, Flanders, North Holland, Amstellande, Brabant, Belgium (Leodiensis), Italy, the Piedmont, etc. Many of these maps include coats-of-arms of the countries, towns or regions, and well as detailed views of fortified cities and castles. The titles and legends for all maps are in Dutch and French. A few minor splits to lower edges of folds, otherwise, in perfect condition. Very Rare: OCLC list two copies of the Atlas worldwide; one in the Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris (1732 edition) and one in the British Library (1747 edition with 37 maps). No copies appearing at auction as listed by ABPC. Not in Koeman nor Shirley: though Koeman cites an edition of 1732 with 37 maps (K. III, Rat. 1) and edition of 1747 also with 37 maps (Shirley, G.Rat- 1a).

Augsburg: Johann Andreas Pfeffel, ca. 1730. Millard, Northern 17. |~||~||~||~||~| Five volumes on 18th-century Salzburg architecture and gardens, all in First Editions, with an important provenance. A total of 60 etched and engraved plates after designs by Franz Anton Danreiter. Includes two title-pages and 58 images of gardens, cathedrals and other structures, landscape design, and schematic plans for important castles and gardens in and around Salzburg. The first title has an engraved title-page and 20 plates depicting cathedrals and a hospital; the second with engraved dedication leaf and 5 plates of plans and buildings of Schloss Mirabell; the third, 9 plates of gardens and a garden plan of Mirabell; the fourth consists of 4 plates showing Schloss Salzburg; and the fifth with an allegorical engraved title and 19 images of gardens, fountains, and other structures at Hellbrun. Text at bottom of plates in German and French. Franz Anton Danreiter (d. 1760) was appointed by Leopold Prince of Salzburg as Inspector of Gardens (Oberaufseher aller Salzburgichen Hofgärten). Leopold was the owner of the estate at Hellbrun, and the present work provides some of the very few eighteenth-century visual records of the gardens. Danreiter was responsible for planting the famous garden of the Schloss Mirabell and later supervised the construction of the Sebastiankirche in Salzburg. The palace of Hellbrun, located three miles south of Salzburg, was built around 1615. It contains the famous mechanical theaters, as well as the acclaimed fountains. Danreiter's Garten Propect von Hellbrun contains an allegorical title-page, a plan of the estate showing the designs of the gardens, a view of the entrance of the Jardin de Plaisance, a view of the Batiment de Plaisance, two views of the gardens from the park, three views of the courtyards of the palace, views of the Grotto of Neptune and of Thetis, a view of the eerie sculptures in the woods entitled: Le Monstre de la Forêt, views of the fountains of Cleopatra, of Actaeon, and of Diane, views of the garden theaters of stones and of shells, a view of the garden pond, a view of the Édifice de Plaisance, and finally, a view of Belvedere, the Maison de Plaisance. The plates are in fine condition, in a beautiful binding.
