        Aloe Africana Caulescens foliis glaucis caulerm amplectenibus 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 Ehrets 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, Aloe Africana Caulescens foliis glaucis caulerm amplectenibus major, 17.5" x 11.5, is in very good condition with slight discoloration on the plate, and evidence of previous binding on the left edge. This engraving shows a beautifully colored and detailed aloe plant within a decorative planter. The leaves of this succulent are colored with different shades of green and lightly patterned. Their shapes, coloring and form all add to their realistic nature. The pot this Aloe plants sits in is detailed as well, colored bronze with highlights and finite decorations.

      Edinburgh: Robert Freebairn, 1736. n. Hardcover. 178 x 114 mm (7 x 4 1/2"). [410] leaves. ORNATE CONTEMPORARY RED MOROCCO, HEAVILY GILT, IN A CHARACTERISTICALLY SCOTTISH DESIGN, covers framed by dogtooth rolls and densely tooled with gilt flowers, foliage, turnips, swirls, and dots, central panel with vaguely herringbone design formed by interlocking full and half circles accented by floral tools, fleurons, and dots, the panel framed by very prominent densely cross-hatched pear-shaped ornaments, each containing a stylized thistle within it; raised bands, spine intricately gilt in compartments with scrolling cornerpieces and large fleuron centerpiece incorporating a saltire, patterned paper pastedowns (lacking free endpapers), all edges gilt (the boards with shallow, thin blind rules--as part of the design or else added later--demarcating the central panel as well as extending from top to bottom and side to side along the exact center of the cover; very expert repairs to head of joints, tiny restoration to corners). Front pastedown with bookplate of Hans Fürstenberg (see below). Darlow & Moule 791. A hint of splaying to front board, joints and extremities a little rubbed (though carefully refurbished), gilt a bit muted in places, but the once spectacular binding still extremely appealing, with nothing approaching a major condition issue. Mild browning throughout, occasional trivial foxing, marginal stains, or other trivial imperfections, but still an excellent copy internally, with few signs of use, the fresh, clean leaves with comfortable margins. This is an especially desirable 18th century Scottish binding with vigorous and intricate decoration as well as distinguished provenance. Our binding is notable, first, in employing extraordinarily large pear-shaped or palm-leaf forms that Sommerlad says are seen only on Scottish bindings, and, second, in its use of the turnip ornament, which he identifies as the "most popular design" among Scottish tools. Finally, the St. Andrew's cross (saltire) in the spine compartments is also a frequent feature of Scottish bindings of the period. Similar design elements may be seen in Maggs Catalogue 1075, #158, in items #19 and 23 in Sommerlad's list of "Scottish 'Wheel' and 'Herring-bone' Bindings in the Bodleian Library," and in #278 in the "Henry Davis Gift." Sommerlad notes that bindings like the present one were used "mainly on Bibles or on presentation copies of academic dissertations." Like ours, the bindings cited above are all on Bibles printed in Edinburgh. Our previous owner, Hans Fürstenberg (1890-1982), put together one of the finest collections of 18th century books ever assembled, and in 1929 he published "Das Französische Buch im Achtzehnten Jahrhundert und in der Empirezeit," a brilliant survey of French works from the period, intended to serve as an introduction to a catalogue of his collection. Although the catalogue never appeared, there was a major exhibition drawn from the riches of his collection in 1965--and for that exhibition a catalogue was, in fact, published. The discrimination that went into his selection of books is evident here in the animated elegance of the present design, the quality of the decoration's execution, and the volume's generally excellent condition. In 1974 the Fürstenberg collection was sold en bloc to Dr. Otto Schäfer, whose marvelous library had already become distinguished for its fine and historic bindings.

        The South West Prospect of the City of Exeter.

      London. 1736 - Size: 430 x 857 mm. Good condition. Split and repair to upper centrefold. Copperplate engraving with later hand colour. From 1726 to 1742, Samuel Buck (1696–1779) and his brother Nathaniel published an ambitious series of collection of perspective views ("antiquities") in the counties of England and Wales. From 1728 they worked on a parallel project, producing long prospects of all the cities, sea-ports and county towns, usually marketing their town prospects in sets of six. Though the Buck brothers were not the only ones producing views of antiquities and town prospects in the eighteenth century they were much the most prolific. Collectively their engravings provide us with an indispensable record of what English and Welsh towns looked like before the industrial revolution.

        Poems on Several Occasions

      Printed for the author, London 1736 - xl, 336pp. Woodcut head and tail pieces. Stephen Duck, 1705-1756, was born and lived at Charlton, Wiltshire. He wrote poems on several subjects, most well-known was 'The Threshers Labour' which was publicly read to the Queen by the Earl of Macclesfield. Also 'Truth and Falsehood' and 'A Fable'. The poems are representative of 18th-century working-class poetry, a genre that they essentially began. There are stylistic conventions and modifications in his poems, but also modest truths about laboring people. Duck was given a small house and various minor court appointments by the Queen; he became a yeoman of the guard, then a Keeper of the Queen's Library, and eventually took holy orders. Aquaintance, rival and fellow poet Mary Collier was also a labourer. G : in good condition without dust jacket. Some wear to later cover with leather cracked and split at head and tail of spine.

        Les Voyages de Cyrus, avec un Discours sur la Mythologie.

      chez Gabriel François Quillay,, A Paris, 1736 - 2 voll. in-16° (168x108mm), pp. (16), 355; (2), 224 + 188 contenenti il "Discours sur la Mythologie" e la "Lettre de M. Freret à l'Auteur, sur la Chronologie de son Ouvrage". Legatura coeva p. pelle maculata con dorsi adorni di ricchi fregi ornamentali in oro e di doppio tassello, uno rosso e uno verde, con titolo e tomaison in oro. Bruniture normali. Ottimo stato. Prima edizione di questo romanzo, ispirato alle "Avventure di Telemaco" di Fénelon, in cui attraverso il racconto dei viaggi di Ciro si fornisce la descrizione di un regno ideale, popolato dalle figure storiche e mitologiche dell'antichità classica. L'opera, che conobbe grande fortuna per tutto il corso del '700, contiene anche numerose considerazioni di natura filosofica, dericate in parte da Fénelon e in parte dal "True Intellectual System of the Universe" di Ralph Cudworth. Dal canto suo, lo storico della filosofia John Laird, nel suo saggio "Hume's Philosophy of Human Nature" (London, 1932) sostiene che alcune categorie del pensiero di David Hume derivino proprio da Ramsay, che egli aveva conosciuto a Parigi nel 1737. Andrew Michael Ramsay (Ayr, Scozia, 1686-Saint-Germain-en-Laye,1743), letterato scozzese poi naturalizzato francese, fu convertito nel 1709 dall'anglicanesimo al cattolicesimo dal suo amico Fénelon. Combattente in gioventù al fianco degli inglesi nella Guerra di Successone Spagnola, fu precettore e poi intendente del Principe di Turenne e fu legato d'amicizia anche a Rousseau e a Louis Racine.

        Cardus acanthium dictus capitulus minoribus

      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 Ehrets 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, Cardus acanthium dictus capitulus minoribus, 15" x 9.75", is in excellent condition. Showing three different types of plants, it is well detailed from the thistle stems and leaves to the colorful flowers. Arader Galleries is happy to reduce the cost of this engraving by 50% if client uses our excellent framing services.
