        Eine kurtze Eröffnung und Anweisung der dreyen Principien und Welten im Menschen, In unterschiedlichen Figuren vorgestellet: wie und wo eigentlich ihre Centra im innern Menschen stehen; gleich sie der Autor selbst im Göttlichen Schauen in sich gefunden...

      [N.p.]: Auf vieler Verlangen aufs neue dem Druck übergeben... 1736. Small 8vo, 175, [1(instructions to binder)] pp. Double-page frontispiece containing two images; folding cosmic diagram; and two plates, all hand-colored copperplate engravings; the diagram & plates tipped onto the fore-edges of text leaves. Title-page printed in red & black. Contemporary brown & white marbled boards, paper backstrip label, in modern beige buckram folding box with paper backstrip label. Covers well worn; some minor internal staining and neat annotation; small ballpoint arrow on title-page indicating date '1696'; name of the author of the foreword on p. [2]; overall a sound copy of this important mystical text with astonishing illustrations. Second Edition; the work was evidently compiled in 1696 and first published in Leiden in 1723. Later editions were issued in 1779 & 1850; and the book may well be in print today. This edition is most uncommon, with OCLC locating it only at Duke and the Niedersachsische Staats- und Universitatsbibliothek in Gottingen. Johann Georg Gichtel (1638-1710) was a theologian and attorney who embraced mysticism and the teachings of the inspirational Jakob Böhme (1575-1624), whose works he edited in 1682-1683. Gichtel wound up leading a life of ecstatic poverty in Amsterdam as head of a small cult known as Gichtelians or Brethren of the Angel. Their goal, and the thrust of this complex hermetic-mystical treatise, is the understanding of Divine Wisdom through self-knowledge and through freedom from all carnal desires. The four human images in the frontispiece and plates depict the evolution of humankind from the spirit by means of an inward spiraling of energies through the planets, although the iconography is much more complex than that. The large cosmic diagram seems to combine elements of astrology and spiritualism. These images were evidently based on visions of Gichtel's and may have been prepared by Graber, whose role in this publication is uncertain. The book was probably edited by Johann Wilhelm Überfeld (whose name is written in on p. [2]) (1659-1731), a follower of Gichtel who in 1730 published an edition of Gichtel's edition of Böhme's writings that is now regarded as standard. The first edition has appeared 3 times at auction since 1975, this edition only once; no copy is noted online although copies of the 1st and 4th editions are there as of 9/07.

        An Enquiry into the Life and Writings of Homer [with original pen-and-ink sketch]

      London: [s.n.], M.DCC.XXXVI [1736]. 8vo: [4],346,[82], with folding copper-engraved map of the Mediterranean world, frontispiece portrait of Homer, title-page vignette and 12 further half-page plates and tailpieces (one beginning and ending each section), engraved by Van der Gucht, all in excellent impressions. Contemporary mottled calf, boards framed with double gilt filet, ornately gilt-tooled spine in six compartments, red morocco lettering piece gilt, all edges speckled red, plain period end papers. Laid in is an accomplished drawing in pen and ink of the frontispiece portrait, signed and dated, "[John] Bateman 1760." (Bateman's engraved armorial book plate appears on the front paste down.) A Fine, virtually pristine copy, bright pages free of foxing and stains, clear print and ample margins, fresh gilt. In all, a highly attractive example of this seminal work of classical scholarship. Lowndes 213. Second Edition. Blackwell's reputation as a major figure of the Scottish Enlightenment rests chiefly on this pioneering study, first published anonymously in 1735. Blackwell believed that culture was learned, not inherent (a cornerstone of modern cultural anthropology), and that Homer's rank as a supreme epic poet "was the outcome of a specific historical context, social organization, geography, and climate, which combined to shape the culture he represented and which provided an ethos uniquely favourable to epic poetry. . . . A key point of the analysis was the idea of uneven development, an overlap between high civilization in the centres of Greek culture, with a continuation of relative barbarism and its attendant heroic values elsewhere. . . . In the early stages of society language was naturally bold and metaphorical, so that utterance had a rude and energetic quality which it later lost. . . . Homer was peculiarly favoured by circumstance, since he had appeared at the beginning of [this] new cultural phase, but still had personal experience of the old heroic ethos." (ODNB) Withal, Lowndes was unimpressed: "A production that displays more erudition than genius, and more affectation than elegance."

        Mémoire sur l'origine des constellations, et sur l'explication de la fable, par le moyen de l'astronomie.Paris, widow Desaint, 1781. 4to. With a woodcut vignette on the title-page. Contemporary cat's paw calf, gold-tooled spine.

      Buchwald & Josefowicz, The zodiac of Paris, pp. 43-62; Edelstein, The terror of natural right, pp. 243-244; Poggendorff I, p. 630; Wellcome II, p. 503. First separate edition of an erudite treatise on the astronomical foundations of religion and mythology. In the late 18th century, the notion of a common origin of all religions had become popular among French Enlightenment radicals, thereby challenging the Church's claim to absolute truth and moving as close as possible to atheism. Basing himself on the work of the astronomer Bailly (1736-1793), Dupuis investigated the origin of the constellations of the zodiac in relation to their given names. Since the constellations do not in any way represent the figure after which they are named, Dupuis concluded that they must have been older than their Greek names would suggest. The signs must have had some sort of connection with the state of the earth and agricultural labour, working as a calendar, and Dupuis ultimately found his original civilization in Upper Egypt, 15 to 16 thousand years ago. On this basis, Dupuis founded his thesis that all religions derived from the Egyptian zodiac and that all gods in various mythologies, including the Christian God, were allegories of the sun.After publication, the theory was refuted by Bailly, although he praised Dupuis's erudition and ingenuity. Nevertheless, the theory proved popular with radical revolutionaries.Binding somewhat worn, notably the hinges and back board. With some spots and a small hole in the gutter margin of pp. 187-188; a very good copy.

With 4 engraved frontispieces and 104 other engraved plates (8 folding), all finely coloured by a contemporary hand. Contemporary richly gold-tooled dark green grained morocco, gold-tooled spine, boards, board edges and turn-ins, gilt edges, with the name of the binder on spine: R.P. CHILLIAT.

      - Brunet I, col. 1225; Colas 443; Cordier, Sinica, cols. 64-65; cf. Abbey, Travel 535; Reed & Dematté 14; for the binder; Bibl. Henri Beraldi III, 374; Flety, p. 44. A rare complete set of Breton's lively description of China during the reign of Emperor Qianlong (ruled 1736-1795), with 108 beautifully coloured illustration plates. The first four volumes were originally published alone in 1811 and the last two volumes added as a supplement in 1812. The images cover the whole range of Chinese society. They show military, ceremonial and traditional costumes, weaponry, means of transport, arts and crafts, implements, toys and other objects of everyday life, but also means of punishment and execution. The majority of the plates were based on original drawings in the private collection of the French Secretary of State Henri Léonard Jean Baptiste Bertin (1719-1792). Although the original artists are not named, most look like the work of the Englishmen George Henry Mason and William Alexander. Alexander accompanied Lord Macartney's 1792-1794 embassy to China as a junior draughtsman. All 108 plates in our set are beautifully coloured by a master craftsman with an eye for detail, truly contributing to the value of the set.In an attractive contemporary binding by the Parisian binder R.P. Chilliat. Beraldi lists and illustrates a Chilliat binding with the arms of Napoleon Bonaparte, that includes many of the same tools on the boards. With bookplate. Some very minor browning on along the top edges, some occasional spots, but otherwise in very good condition. The binding slightly rubbed along the spine, but otherwise also very good.

Très belle impression sur papier fort, dans un charmant encadrement gravé sur bois à chaque page. Palau, 253950-1 (l'édition de 1728 qu'il mentionne sous le numéro 253949 n'existe pas, étant le produit d'une confusion avec une édition des règles de la Hermandad de los Venerables Sacerdotes).

        Opera medica, hoc est, disputationum medicarum decas. . .

      Venice: Ex Typographia Hertziana, 1736. Title in red and black. With woodcut initials and ornamental head- and tailpieces. Vellum-backed marbled boards; leaves slightly browned due to paper stock. An excellent copy. Later edition of the author's collected works, first printed in 1679. This Opera contains his complete writings, including transcripts of his lectures. Le Boe, or Sylvius was a follower of the iatrochemical school, a system based on the elements of chemistry and the new knowledge of circulation. He was one of the earliest advocates of Harvey's theory, and one of the most influential of the iatrochemists who treated all disease chemically; the first to distinguish between conglomerate and conglobate glands, to regard digestion as a chemical fermentation and to recognize the importance of the saliva and pancreatic juice. He was instrumental in the early recognition of tuberculosis which, up to his time, was known only in its advanced form.Sylvius (1614-72), physician, physiologist, anatomist, and chemist was an outstanding teacher. He established the first university chemical laboratory in Europe at Leyden. He is credited by Haller as giving the first description of the lateral cerebral fissure, which bears his name. Although the aqueduct from the third to the fourth ventricle had been previously noted, we owe to Sylvius the name of the aqueduct.

        Opera Omnia: medica, philosophica, et mathematica..

      Naples: Felicis Caroli Mosca, 1736. FIRST EDITION. With 1 folding plate in first volume and 9 folding plates in second volume, plus numerous woodcut initials, head- and tailpieces. Beautiful Cambridge-style binding with the inner and outer panels stained and speckled, frames decorated with blind-rolls, floral stamps at angles in the outermost panel, gilt tooled border, decorative rolled board edges, spine in 6 panels with gilt decorations, title and volume, marbled edges and endpapers; interior clean. With the bookplate of Alfred Paul Bay. First edition of this posthumous publication of works on medicine, philosophy, and mathematics. Included is a dialogue on the blood according to Erasistratus, Galen, Thomas Willis, and Van Helmont, an Apologia of Galen, a paraphrasing of Hippocrates, and Porzio's own De militis in castris sanitate tuenda, De motu corporum, and various fragments and dissertations, all of which are in Latin. The final two sections are in Italian, one being a collection of Porzio's letters and academic speeches and the other being a treatise on the use of potions for fistulas.De militis in castris, which opens the second volume, was originally published in 1685 and is considered Porzio's most important work. It was inspired by the author's direct experience with soldiers during the Ottoman Empire's siege of Vienna, during which he gained a first-hand view of the common diseases and ailments contracted during wartime, many of which were caused by unsanitary conditions. The resulting treatise offered advice on cleanliness and diet for soldiers and remained an authoritative source on the subject well into the mid-eighteenth century.Porzio (1637-1715) was an Italian natural philosopher and medical doctor active in Naples, Rome and Venice. He was a professor at the Royal University of Naples.

        Abies rubra major

      Amsterdam 1736 - Johann Wilhelm Weinmann (1683-1741) was an influential pharmacist and botanist, and director of the longest established pharmacy in Regensburg, Germany. Weinmann supervised the compilation of the important and valuable 18th century florigium, The Phytanthoza Iconographia, which contains 1,025 plates of botanicals, aloe, cacti, trees, fruits and vegetables, depicting 4,000 species. Weinmann’s background as an apothecary is evident in the composition and style of the prints, which are both scientific and beautifully decorative as well. The Phytanthoza Iconographia is remarkable not only for the beauty and accuracy of its illustrations, but also for the successful use of color printing. Most of the plates were engraved with what was considered a recently developed process which combined etching and mezzotint. Having solid areas in colored mezzotint allowed for the subtle variations of tone in the flower petals and leaves, with watercolor details added. Many of these plates are engraved after the drawings of the distinguished German botanical artist Georg Dionysius Ehret (1708-1770), who was employed by Weinmann as a young man. These were Ehret’s first published works before he went on to compile his own botanical volumes. The botanical descriptions for the first twenty-five plates was written by Johann Georg Nicolaus Dieterichs (1681-1737), who was succeeded by his son Ludwig Michael (1716-1747), and the work was completed after Weinmann's death by Ambrosius Karl Bieler (1693-1747). This mezzotint and line engraving, Abies rubra major, 17.5" x 11.5", is in good condition with light staining and discoloration throughout. Showing different types and views of pine cones, this engraving is well colored and detailed. Each pine cone is rendered naturalistically as are the needles of the tree.

        [Deed of Sale] To all the People to whom these Presents shall come, Greeting, Know ye, that..

      Boston, 1736. Browned, horizontal split halfway through at the main fold, a few other small tears and splits, with minor loss of a few letters not affecting legibility, a few small stains on the verso, still quite good and legible.. 1 sheet. A partially printed deed for the purchase of a sixty-third part of a new township, in middle Massachusetts, on the "Easterly side of the Connecticut River between Northfield and Fort Dummer called Willard town or Arlington." The buyer was a savvy 33 year old rising star among Boston merchants, Thomas Hancock (1703 -1764), who started in the book trade, expanded into importing and exporting, and who "became one of Boston's wealthiest men [and] when his health failed, ... passed his business and fortune to his nephew, future Founding Father John Hancock, whom he had raised since John was thirteen."

        La Chine en miniature, ou choix de costumes, arts et métiers de cet empire, [vols. 1-4:] représentés par 74 [recté] gravures [vols. 5-6: représentés par 28 gravures], la plupart d'après les originaux inédits du cabinet du feu M. Bertin.Paris, A. Nepveu (vols. 1-4 printed by Demonville, vols. 5-6 by Le Normant), 1811-1812. 6 volumes bound as 2. 18mo (14 x 9 cm). With 4 engraved frontispieces and 104 other engraved plates (8 folding), all finely coloured by a contemporary hand. Contemporary richly gold-tooled dark green grained morocco, gold-tooled spine, boards, board edges and turn-ins, gilt edges, with the name of the binder on spine: R.P. CHILLIAT.

      Brunet I, col. 1225; Colas 443; Cordier, Sinica, cols. 64-65; cf. Abbey, Travel 535; Reed & Dematté 14; for the binder; Bibl. Henri Beraldi III, 374; Flety, p. 44. A rare complete set of Breton's lively description of China during the reign of Emperor Qianlong (ruled 1736-1795), with 108 beautifully coloured illustration plates. The first four volumes were originally published alone in 1811 and the last two volumes added as a supplement in 1812. The images cover the whole range of Chinese society. They show military, ceremonial and traditional costumes, weaponry, means of transport, arts and crafts, implements, toys and other objects of everyday life, but also means of punishment and execution. The majority of the plates were copied from original drawings in the private collection of the French Secretary of State Henri Léonard Jean Baptiste Bertin (1719-1792). Although the original artist is not named, most of the plates seem to be based on English models by George Henry Mason and William Alexander. Alexander accompanied Lord Macartney's 1792-1794 embassy to China as a junior draughtsman. All 108 plates in our set are beautiful coloured by a master craftsman with an eye for detail, truly contributing to the value of the set.In an attractive contemporary binding by the Parisian binder R.P. Chilliat. Beraldi lists and illustrates a Chilliat binding with the arms of Napoleon Bonaparte, that includes many of the same tools on the boards. With bookplate. Some very minor browning on along the top edges at the head, some occasional spots, but otherwise in very good condition. The binding slightly rubbed along the spine, but otherwise also very good.

        A chronological history of New-England in the form of annals: Being a summary and exact account of the most material transactions and occurrences relating to this country, in the order of time wherein they happened, from the discovery by Capt.

      Boston: Pr. by Kneeland & Green for S. Gerrish, 1736. 8vo (16.6 cm, 6.5"). [8], xi, [1], 20, 104, [2], 254 pp. (lacking title-page). First edition of an extremely ambitious, painstakingly detailed history — "our most scholarly colonial work," according to Howes. The Rev. Thomas Prince was minister of the Old South Church in Boston and founder of the New England Library (now the Prince Collection of the Boston Public Library); he began collecting the historical references that formed the basis of the present work in 1703, when he entered Harvard.    Dedicated to Jonathan Belcher, this first volume ends at the year 1630, with a note that the size of the undertaking had exceeded the expectations of both the author and the bookseller. The second volume did not appear until 1755, under the title Annals of New-England.         Sabin 65585; Evans 4068; Howes P615; ESTC W30371. On Prince, see: Dictionary of American Biography. 19th-century sheep, spine with gilt-stamped leather title-label; leather rubbed and scraped, with spine label chipped. Front pastedown with institutional stamp; front free endpaper and fly-leaf with pencilled notations. Title-page lacking; first (dedication) leaf with signature "[W?] Nathans" and two early inked inscriptions on text pages reading "Nath[.] Mason his book." Pages browned, most heavily the first 50 pages; some other staining; a few leaves with short edge tears, in two cases touching text without loss. Sound, and still interesting reading.
