        Onderwys der Vrouwen aangaande het baaren; Waar in op een beknopte wyze gehandelt word over alle deszelfs Voor- en Tegenspoeden, en aangetoont de heilzaamste Behandelinge;..Tweden Druk. [Vignette]

      Haarlem,: Johannes Marshoorn,, 1735 (=1727).. [ii blank], [xvi], 518, [iv blank] pp. Small 8vo (11 x 16,5 cm.). Full contemporary vellum. Title printed in red and black. One of the rarest of all Dutch 18th century obstetrical books. Worldwide there are only 4 copies in library holdings (NLM, UBA, UBL & UBU), and haven't been offered for sale for decades. First, posthumously, published in 1727, this "tweden druk" is nothing more than a remainder of the sheets of the 1727 edition with a new title-page, dated 1735. Because of the great rarity of this work, its importance have been ignored by most of the historians of obstetrics (i.a. von Siebold). Johannes Huwé was born at Haarlem, promoted MD at Groningen in 1699. As a pupil of Van Deventer, he devoted most of his life to Obstetrics. He was the FIRST to consider the mechanism of labor from a dynamic and mathematics point of view (i.a. pelvimetry, inclination of the pelvis and uterus, measurement of the scull and lower extremities of the infant, etc.). An interesting association copy with the signature and polychrome bookplate and signature of Jan van der Hoeven (1927), the rubber stamp of Dr. H.R. Semmelink and an illegible co

        The Memoirs of the Honourable Sir John Reresby, Bart.

      London - Samuel Harding 1735 - The historical memoirs of Sir John Reresby, 17th-century English politician and diarist. Second printing. After the English Civil War, in 1654 Reresby went abroad, where he became a great friend of Henrietta Maria, the widow of Charles I, whom he visited in France. The account he wrote of his travels during this period was published in his Memoirs, published forty years after his death; they are invaluable to historians as sidelights on the dramatic times through which he lived. Including red-and-black printed title page. With index to the rear. Condition: Rebacked in calf with the original boards preserved. Externally, smart, though with wear to the original leather and some marks. Internally, firmly bound.

      Udg. af Frederik Rostgaard og Peder Terpager [samt Hans Gram]. København 1735. 320 + 484 +(2) s. Indbundet i ét samtidigt helskindsbd. Med spejlmonogram på titelbl. Med gamle noter på friblad.. "Den store danske Poet, hvis Lige Danmark aldrig saae" (Fr. Rostgaard), og før Brorson og Stub oplevede man heller intet tilsvarende Fremstød i dansk Poesi. "Den danske Mercurius", der for første gang findes optrykt i sin helhed her, er den første avis på dansk sprog og er banebrydende så meget mere som heller ikke noget udenlandsk forbillede kendes. Den egentlige udgiver er Hans Gram, der har forsynet værket med en instruktiv fortale henvendt til det danske sprogs elskere. Bibl. Dan. IV,215. "While Kingo is known for his hymns, Bording is more succesful as an occasional poet and satirist. Perhaps his most important contribution to Danish literature is his creation of what is called "the first Danish newspaper", "Den danske Mercurius" (1666 - 1677). The 1735 edition, which includes Den danske Mercurius, is the first complete collection of Bording's poetry; it also represents the first collected edition of any Danish poet."

      London: Printed for J. Osborn [vol I]; Printed for J. Walthoe, R. Wilkin, J. and J. Bonwicke, J. Osborn, S. Birt, T. Ward and E. Wicksteed [vol II], 1735. 2 volumes, 8vo. (8 x 5 inches). 20 engraved maps and plates (8 folding), as issued, and EXTRA-ILLUSTRATED with 3 engraved plates from the 1703 first edition. Later mottled calf by Morrell, gilt triple-fillet borders with circular floral corner designs on the covers, spine with raised bands in six compartments, decoratively tooled in gilt, morocco gilt lettering pieces in the second and third compartments, all edges gilt. The principal early-18th century description of Canada: this beautiful copy of the second edition extra-illustrated with three additional plates from the first. Lahontan's narrative is of considerable value for his travels in the Lake region. There is much accurate information about the region, including an Algonquin dictionary at the rear of the second volume. The additional Letter XVI, which details a fictional journey west of the Mississippi, has often placed this work in a poor light. Historian Reuben Gold Thwaites suggests, however, that it can be read as "an anticipation of Swift;" that is, that the chapter was an intentional parody. "In simple sentences, easily read and comprehended by the masses, Lahontan recounted not only his own adventures and the important events that occurred beneath his eyes in the much-talked-of region of New France, but drew a picture of the simple delights of life in the wilderness, more graphic than had yet been presented to the European world. His idyllic account of manners and customs among the savages in the heart of the American forest ... was a picture which fascinated the 'average reader' in that romantic age, eager to learn of new lands and strange peoples" (Thwaites, "Introduction" in his 1905 edition of Lahontan's New Voyages). Although the title describes the work as complete with 23 engraved "maps and cuts," this second edition of Lahontan's New Voyages was only issued with 20 (the title statement being a holdover from the first edition). This copy, however, contains the three plates supplied from a copy of the first edition. All three plates appear in the first volume, facing pages 55, 161 and 185 respectively.

        Le Spectacle de la Nature

      Paris -la Veuve Esitenne and JeanDesaint, 1735 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A beautifully illustrated copy of this popular work of natural history. In three volumes. Volume I contains the Premiere Partie and is a third edition with an illustration to frontispiece and 23 further plates, 14 of which are folding. Volume II contains the Seconde Partie, is a Nouvelle edition and contains a frontispiece plus 34 folding plates. Volume III contains the rest of the Seconde Partie and is also a Nouvelle edition. It has a frontispiece followed by a half title and title page, and 32 plates, 31 of which are folding. The engraved plates depict a wide variety of subjects, including butterflies, sea creatures, plants and flowers, machinery, maps and scientific diagrams. Noel-Antoine Pluche (13 November 1688 19 November 1761), known as the abbe Pluche, was a French priest best-known for this work. Pluche, son of a baker, was born in Rheims, in a street now named after him. He became a teacher of rhetoric. The Bishop of Laon made him head of the town&#39;s college, a post he accepted to escape judicial consequences of opposing the papal bull Unigenitus (1713). He withdrew in 1749 to La Varenne-Saint-Maur, near Paris, where he died. His Spectacle de la Nature was published in 1732, and widely translated all over Europe. Although it influenced many to become naturalists, it was a work of popularisation, not of science. With a previous owner&#39;s inscription to each front free endpaper of one John Brooke. Condition: In calf bindings. Externally, sound with shelfwear and cracking to five joints. Internally, firmly bound. Generally bright and clean but with creasing and curling to many of the fold-out plates. Overall: GOOD.

        Traité de l'opinion, ou memoires pour servir a l'histoire de l'esprit humaine.

      Pitteri,, A Venise, 1735 - Due volumi legati in uno di cm. 26, pp. xvi, 703 (1); 440. Marchi xilografici ai frontespizi, testatine, capolettera incisi e 4 belle incisioni nel testo. Solida legatura ottocentesca in mezza pergamena con titoli ms. al dorso. Bell'esemplare, a pieni margini. Si tratta dell'edizione in formato maggiore di quest'opera stampata originariamente nel 1733 (sei volumi in ottavo). L'autore, noto anche come il Marchese di St. Aubin, ebbe l'idea di scrivere quest'opera seguendo il desiderio che Pascal esprimeva di leggere il libro italiano "Della opinione regina del mondo". La divisione in sei libri permette all'autore di ".passare successivamente in rassegna le varie rivoluzioni subite dalle lettere, la filosofia e le scienze. Intraprende d'indicare l'influenza dell'opinione sulla cultura delle scienze, stimate in un secolo e trascurate e anche disprezzate in altri; fa vedere le contraddizioni nelle quali caddero i più grandi uomini; dipinge le loro meschine contese, i loro pregiudizi e le loro debolezze." cfr.

The Anabasis and the Agesilaus [&#39;Xenophontos logos eis Agesilaon ton basilea&#39;], with separate pagination and title pages, edited by Thomas Hutchinson and printed at the Sheldonian Theatre (forerunner of the Oxford University Press). The first five words of the title are transliterated from the Greek. 4to: [10],XL,[2],662;[10],96pp, with copper-engraved frontispiece by Gravelot, folding map and woodcut tailpieces.

Provenance: engraved bookplate (arms on urn) of William Downes, likely 1st Baron Downes (1751-1826), one of the leading Irish judges of his time. ESTC Citation No. T139182. & The Greek term anabasis denotes an expedition from a country&#39;s coastline to its interior, and in the Greek philosopher-soldier Xenophon&#39;s account refers to the march of Cyrus the Younger from Ionia, on the eastern coast of the Aegean Sea, to the interior of Asia Minor and Mesopotamia (though most of Xenophon&#39;s narrative is taken up with the return march from Babylon to the coast of the Black Sea). Cyrus and his Ten Thousand, an army of Greek mercenaries, intended to seize the throne of Persia from Cyrus&#39;s brother, Artaxerxes II. Though Cyrus&#39;s army fought to victory at Cunaxa, in Babylon, Cyrus himself was killed. Stranded deep in enemy territory, Xenophon, one of three remaining leaders, exhorted the Greek army to march north through snow-filled mountain passes toward the Black Sea and its Greek shoreline cities. Logos eis Agesilaon, the second work, celebrates the life of Agesilaus II, king of Sparta (444-360 BC), under whom Xenophon fought against his fellow Athenians. N. B.

        Parlamento avuto à Popoli di Corsica nel Congresso tenuto in Corte. Presidente della Suprema Consulta di quel Regno

      Naples or Livorno?, 1735. Soft cover. Very Good. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Bound n contemporary wrappers.. Some staining and wear, but generally good. Exceedingly rare first edition of Corsica&#39;s first constitution, written by the independence leader Giacinto Paoli. As one of the earliest - if not the first - nations in modern history to employ a democratic constitution, Corsica&#39;s struggle for independence gripped the attention of major figures across Europe: Rousseau championed its cause in Le contrat social (1762), while Boswell, encouraged by Rousseau, famously visited Corsica and wrote admiringly of Giacinto Paoli and his son Pasquale in his Account of Corsica (Glasgow, 1768). Voltaire and Frederick the Great of Prussia were also vocal supporters. By the 1720s, Corsica had been under Genoese control for almost 400 years. The situation came to a head when, in 1729, a bad harvest prompted the villagers of Bozio to refuse to pay their taxes and to expel the Genoese. Word spread, and other villagers took action. The struggle for independence was underway. In January 1731 a traditional Corsican decision-making assembly (consulta) gathered in Corte and proclaimed Corsica&#39;s freedom from Genoese rule. Genoa quickly appealed to Charles VI for help, and his troops made the Corsicans sue for a settlement in 1732. But the rebellion broke out again as soon as the imperial troops had left, and it was this resurgence that culminated in the seminal consulta of 1735. This meeting saw Giacinto Paoli appointed one of the island&#39;s three leaders, Corsica&#39;s first attempt to organize on the national level, and a new declaration of independence from Genoa, which in turn prompted Paoli&#39;s historical codification of Corsica&#39;s fundamental principles in the present constitution, which grants sovereignty to the people and endorses the separation of powers. Although it would be superceded in 1755, the present document thus counts among the first-if not the first-democratic constitution in modern history. While Rousseau drafted his own constitution for the island in 1765, it was the young law graduate James Boswell who would become the most vocal champion for Corsican democracy. Following his visit to the island and his meeting with Pasquale Paoli (the son and heir to General Giacinto&#39;s fame), Boswell&#39;s Account of Corsica. and Memoirs of Pascal Paoli portrayed Corsican society in all its Rousseauean primitive simplicity and held up Pasquale as a classical popular hero. Boswell&#39;s work remains an important source for the history of the Corsican struggle for independence, which would finally be quashed by the French annexation of the island in 1769. Dedicating the book to Pasquale, Boswell called his father "a man of learning, religion and bravery; well-qualified to serve his country, either in politicks, or in war," (pp 94-5), and even reproduces a sonnet by Giacinto celebrating victory over the Genoese, with an English translation. * The present document may correspond to OCLC: 661153036 (1 copy at the BnF, no collation given). It is unrecorded on ICCU, although we have been able to confirm one Italian holding of this first edition, in the Archivio di Stato in Turin. The Biblioteca Universitaria of Bologna and the Biblioteca Comunale of Pescia have manuscript versions of the document. With thanks to Antoine-Marie Graziani for this information, and for his expert opinion on the present work&#39;s place of publication, which notwithstanding the Corsican imprint, was most likely published on the Italian mainland, whether in Naples or Livorno.

        The Aphorisms of Hippocrates, and the Sentences of Celsus, with Explanations and References to the most considerable Writers in Physick and Philosophy both Ancient and Modern

      London - R. Wilkin, F. and F. Bonwick, 1735 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A fascinating and early investigation into the philosophy and practises of Hippocrates and Celsus. Second edition. To which are added Aphorisms Upon several Distempers, not well distinguished by the Ancients. Featuring one of the original two, engraved plate of Celsus, by M. V. Grucht, and decorative head and tail pieces, with illuminated capitals. Hippocrates was an ancient Greek physician of the Age of Pericles, and is considered one of the most outstanding figures in the history of medicine. He is referred to as the father of Western medicine in recognition of his lasting contributions to the field as the founder of the Hippocratic School of Medicine. This intellectual school revolutionised medicine in ancient Greece, establishing it as a discipline distinct from other fields that it had traditionally been associated with (notably theurgy and philosophy), thus establishing medicine as a profession. With printed transcriptsfrom victorian surgeons and physicians loosely inserted, discussing the nowbanned remedy, Bromidia. Edited and compiled by Sir Conrad Sprengell, M. D. member of the College of Physicians, and fellow of the Royal Society. Condition: With original calf binding, but with detached boards, making it disbound though with boards present. Externally, both boards are detached, and spine is cracked with loss to spine label. Boards are a trifle rubbed with wear to extremities. Internally, binding has failed in places,due to cracked spine,although mostly firmly bound to the text block edge. Bright but with instances of foxing throughout, and instances of past worming. Copperplate ink annotated notes to pages 412 through to 414. Bookplate to the front pastedown. Overall: FAIR..
