        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.

        Oeuvres de theatre.

      Chez Prault pere 1736 - - Chez Prault pere, A Paris 1736, 4 tomes en 4 Vol. in 12 (9,5x17cm), relié. - Recueil factice composé par l'éditeur, les pages de titres des différentes pièces s'étendant de 1734 à 1742 le quatrième tome étant daté 1745. On remarquera que la première pièce du premier tome vient après la page de titre générale, sans page de titre particulière, sans manque apparent dans la collation même chose au tome II, la première pièce n'étant précédée que d'un faux-titre, alors que toutes les pièces possèdent une page de titre particulière, cela sans manque sans la pagination et collation. L'éditeur a ajouté dans chaque tome un feuillet reprenant les titres des différentes pièces contenues dans chaque volume. Ces particularités sont inhérentes au procédé employé par l'éditeur pour former ce recueil de 16 pièces. Plein Veau d'époque marbré. Dos lisse orné. Pièce de titre et de tomaison en maroquin rouge. Triple filet d'encadrement sur les plats. Coiffe de queue du tome I élimée. Restauration en queue du tome II. Petits manques au mors supérieur des tomes I, II et IV. Epidermures sur les plats. Quelques coins émoussés. Papier plus fragile sur les premiers feuillets du tome IV. Les pièces de Destouches eurent un succès incontestable en leur temps, certaines furent aussitôt reprises par l'Académie française. Destouches constitue une figure du théâtre du début du XVIIIe. Voici ce que Voltaire écrit de lui dans "Le siècle de Louis XIV" : « On ne trouve pas dans ses pièces la force et la gaieté de Regnard, encore moins ces peintures du coeur humain, ce naturel, cette vraie plaisanterie, cet excellent comique, qui fait le mérite de l'inimitable Molière mais il n'a pas laissé de se faire de la réputation après eux. On a de lui quelques pièces qui ont eu du succès, quoique le comique en soit un peu forcé. Il a du moins évité le genre de la comédie qui n'est que langoureuse, de cette espèce de tragédie bourgeoise, qui n'est ni tragique, ni comique, monstre né de l'impuissance des auteurs et de la satiété du public après les beaux jours du siècle de Louis XIV. Sa comédie du Glorieux est son meilleur ouvrage, et probablement restera au théâtre, quoique le personnage du Glorieux soit, dit-on, manqué mais les autres caractères paraissent traités supérieurement. » Le quatrième tome (publié en 1745) contient le discours d'entrée à l'Académie française et la réponse de Fontenelle.

Boards scuffed, head chipped, upper joint split but cords holding; flyleaf detached. With the Masonic bookplate of Jacob Hugo Tatsch, author of Freemasonry in the Thirteen Colonies (1929), on the front pastedown. OCLC: 23445320 (one copy); not in Lipperheide, Colas, nor Hiler . OCLC locates only one copy (i.e., Columbia Law Library) of this rare little treatise on the laws and mores regarding hats, which is itself a bit of a puzzle. The Dedication, in French, is to "Jean Adolphe, duc de Saxe" and is dated 3 October, 1680, some 56 years before the publication of this pamphlet. A search of OCLC reveals a similar title, published in 1680, SCHEDIASMA DE PILEO, of which this might be the second printing. Both editions are exremely rare

        ARTE DE LA LENGUA PAMPANGA.

      Sampaloc, [Philippines]: Convento de Ntra. Sra. de Loreto, 1736. - [32],219,[3]pp. Printed on rice paper. Small quarto. Modern mottled calf, ornately gilt, by Palomino. First few leaves brittle with slight cracking and minor loss, else in excellent condition. Very good. A remarkable survival of early Philippine printing, the extremely rare first book printed in Sampaloc (at that time a separate village but now in central Manila) and the second edition of the first grammar of the Panpanga language of Bataan and Bulacan in Manila Bay. Panpanga bears similarities to Tagalog (which is the subject of most early Philippine linguistic works) but with more Malay and Sanskrit words. The work was first printed in Manila at the Jesuit Press in 1729. The compiler Diego Bergaño (1690- 1747) was the Augustinian Provincial for the Philippines and Prior of the Convent at Bacolor. Printing started in the Philippines remarkably early, in 1593 (the unique example of the founding imprint is in the Rosenwald Collection at the Library of Congress), and was conducted by presses run by the different religious orders. Because of the climate and limited press runs, early imprints are notoriously rare, and generally in very poor condition when found. This is especially true of works printed on rice paper, as this is. A number of imprints recorded by Medina are known from references only, with no surviving copies. In the case of this work, only four copies are noted in OCLC, three in England and one in Germany. Medina based his entry on the copy in the British Library. An important early imprint and linguistic work, in remarkable condition for a work of its origin. PALAU 27815. RETANA, INVENTARIO 88. TAVERA 274. BRUNET I, 783- 784, "ouvrage rare".

        Dialoghi sopra le medaglie, inscrizzioni, ed altre antichità. Tradotti dalla Lingua Spagnuola nell'Italiana da Dionigi Ottaviano Sada, e dal medesimo accresciuti con diverse Annotazioni Istorche, e nuovamente illustrati con molte Medaglie

      Per Girolamo Mainardi, In Roma 1736 - In-folio, pp. (24), 318, (6), XXX di indice, legatura di inizio Ottocento in mezza pelle marrone e angoli con dorso adorno di titolo in oro su tassello e di decori dorati. Piatti in marmorizzatura caillouté verde a venature gialle. Dedica a stampa a Carlo Maria Sacripante di Girolamo Mainardi. L'opera è preceduta da un'ode latina di Giuseppe Castiglione e da una breve vita dell'Agostini tratta dall'orazione funebre in suo onore del gesuita Andrea Scotti. Iniziali, testatine, culs-de-lampe riccamente ornati. Circa un migliaio di riproduzioni xilografiche di medaglie (nonché di archi, monumenti, iscrizioni romane) intercalate n.t. Al recto dell'ultima carta prima dell'indice, incisione silografica di "Misura delle Antiche Medaglie Scolpite in Oro, Argento & Rame, & altro, ritrovata da Dionigi Ottaviano Sada". Normali quanto minime fioriture e bruniture. Ottimo esemplare. Edizione romana, nella classica traduzione del Sada, di "De las medallas, inscriptiones e otras antiguedades", trattazione numismatico-archeologica svolta in forma dialogica tra l'autore e due suoi interlocutori, apparsa per la prima volta a Tarragona nel 1587 (l'edizione originale della versione del Sada risale invece al 1650). L'opera fu assolutamente pionieristica nello studio sistematico della medaglistica antica e fece scuola in merito ancora nel corso del XVIII secolo. L'Agustín, o, nella forma italianizzata qui ricorrente Agostini (Saragozza,1517-1586), vescovo di Tarragona, ma lungo risiedente in Italia, fu giurista, latinista, prese parte al Concilio Tridentino, svolgendo incarichi diplomatici che gli procurarono anche grande rinomanza diplomatica. Very slight foxing here and there, overall a nice copy in early Nineteenth Century half calf, spine gilt. Cicognara, 2728. Brunet, I, 568. Clain Stefanelli, Numismatica, pp. 20, 68.

Binding very slightly worn and bumped. Some light wear and soiling; several small stains; paper loss to blank corners of one leaf professionally repaired; some mispagination but complete. & & Together with: & & An autograph letter dated August 6, 1891, in Spitta's hand, written at the suggestion of the German academician Reinhard Kade (1859- 1937) regarding the first edition of the Singende Muse: "... I have studied the compilation of songs very much and I have published a study on it in Vierteljahresschrift für Musikwissenschaft [No. 1], 1885, pp. 35-126 (and 350-355)..." & & Spitta continues with a detailed description of the two different issues of the first edition, stating that the issue with the song "Ihr Schönen, höret an" on the recto and "Befördert ihr gelinden Saiten" on the verso of the final leaf and without the index is the rarer of the two issues." & & 2 pp. of a bifolium. Octavo. Slightly worn; creased at folds; small burn hole affecting two words. & & Spitta refers to the variant last two songs of the collection, numbered "99" and 100." The first issue had no index. Later editions, from 1741, include all four songs, bringing the total of the volume to 102 songs; however, the number on the title page was left standing. Spitta's view, stated in his letter to Kade, that the first issue was much rarer than the second, has been proven wrong in recent years. & & Together with: & & Issue No. 106 of the Wissenschaftliche Beilage to the Leipziger Zeitung, September 4, 1890, with an article by Kade on the Singende Muse based largely on an earlier article by Spitta and referring to Spitta by name. With pencil markings, possibly in Spitta's hand. Quarto. 4 pp. Browned and somewhat frayed. . First Edition, second issue (of two). Rare (OCLC records only one copy of the second issue in North America, at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester). Hirsch M. 217 (the British Library). MGG XII, 1035. Eitner IX, 225. Additional copies of the second issue are held at the Universität der Künste in Berlin and at the Stadtgeschichtliches Museum in Leipzig. Not in Wolffheim.& & Copies of the first issue are held at the Bachhaus in Eisenach, at the British Library (Hirsch III, 1077), and at the Universität der Künste in Berlin. & & It has been suggested by Dr. Jörg Hansen at the Bachhaus that the recipient of Spitta's letter referred to above wasa Dr. Frese of Döbeln, near Leipzig, the only other known private owner of a copy of the Singende Muse (see Scholze in the Allgemeine Deutsche Biographie, http://www.deutsche-biographie.de/sfz78924.html). It is thus likely that the present copy, in fact, belonged to Frese. & & "Sperontes’s most significant work is the Singende Muse an der Pleisse, a collection of poems set as strophic songs to adaptations of the ‘newest and best music compositions’...

        Singende Muse an der Pleisse in 2. mahl 50 Oden, Der neuesten und besten musicalischen Stücke mit den darzu gehörigen Melodien zu beliebter Clavier-Ãœbung und Gemüths-Ergötzung Nebst einem Anhange aus J.C. Günthers Gedichten

      Leipzig: auf Kosten der lustigen Gesellschaft. 1736. Octavo. Bound in early liturgical manuscript on vellum. 1f. (decorative title engraved by Busch), 1f. (introduction by the author), [98] + [ii] (index) pp. Engraved music throughout, text typeset. With attractive woodcut illustrations incorporating musical instruments, performers, etc. preceding text and as tailpieces to each page. With fine double-page pictorial engraving by C.F. Boetius after the painting by Richter preceding title depicting figures playing musical instruments, singing, conversing, etc. in the foreground with the city of Leipzig, including the Thomaskirche, in the background. With titling to upper portion within highly decorative plaque surrounded by musical instruments, putti and a ribbon on which appears music with text "Das angene... Bleisst Athen." Binding very slightly worn and bumped. Some light wear and soiling; several small stains; paper loss to blank corners of one leaf professionally repaired; some mispagination but complete. Together with: An autograph letter dated August 6, 1891, in Spitta's hand, written at the suggestion of the German academician Reinhard Kade (1859- 1937) regarding the first edition of the Singende Muse: "... I have studied the compilation of songs very much and I have published a study on it in Vierteljahresschrift für Musikwissenschaft [No. 1], 1885, pp. 35-126 (and 350-355)..." Spitta continues with a detailed description of the two different issues of the first edition, stating that the issue with the song "Ihr Schönen, höret an" on the recto and "Befördert ihr gelinden Saiten" on the verso of the final leaf and without the index is the rarer of the two issues." 2 pp. of a bifolium. Octavo. Slightly worn; creased at folds; small burn hole affecting two words. Spitta refers to the variant last two songs of the collection, numbered "99" and 100." The first issue had no index. Later editions, from 1741, include all four songs, bringing the total of the volume to 102 songs; however, the number on the title page was left standing. Spitta's view, stated in his letter to Kade, that the first issue was much rarer than the second, has been proven wrong in recent years. Together with: Issue No. 106 of the Wissenschaftliche Beilage to the Leipziger Zeitung, September 4, 1890, with an article by Kade on the Singende Muse based largely on an earlier article by Spitta and referring to Spitta by name. With pencil markings, possibly in Spitta's hand. Quarto. 4 pp. Browned and somewhat frayed. . First Edition, second issue (of two). Rare (OCLC records only one copy of the second issue in North America, at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester). Hirsch M. 217 (the British Library). MGG XII, 1035. Eitner IX, 225. Additional copies of the second issue are held at the Universität der Künste in Berlin and at the Stadtgeschichtliches Museum in Leipzig. Not in Wolffheim.Copies of the first issue are held at the Bachhaus in Eisenach, at the British Library (Hirsch III, 1077), and at the Universität der Künste in Berlin. It has been suggested by Dr. Jörg Hansen at the Bachhaus that the recipient of Spitta's letter referred to above wasa Dr. Frese of Döbeln, near Leipzig, the only other known private owner of a copy of the Singende Muse (see Scholze in the Allgemeine Deutsche Biographie, http://www.deutsche-biographie.de/sfz78924.html). It is thus likely that the present copy, in fact, belonged to Frese. "Sperontes’s most significant work is the Singende Muse an der Pleisse, a collection of poems set as strophic songs to adaptations of the ‘newest and best music compositions’...

        THE ANALOGY OF RELIGION, NATURAL AND REVEALED, TO THE CONSTITUTION AND COURSE OF NATURE

      London: Printed for James, John and Paul Knapton, 1736.. [12],x,11-320pp. Large quarto. Modern half calf and marbled boards, raised bands, gilt label. Early ink name ("Thomas Ludlam") on title and transcription from Plutarch on the half-title (to all appearances in the same hand), faint seminary blindstamp in blank lower forecorner of title, with 4 digit ms. number on verso of title, occasional very minor dust marking to top margins, otherwise a large (25.5 x 20.5 cm), fresh, crisp copy. First edition of Butler&#39;s magnum opus, one of the signal works in the controversy against deism, and "one of the bulwarks of Christian apologetics ... Hume, who sent Butler his ESSAYS in 1741, ranked him with Locke and Berkeley as one of the originators in the experimental method in moral science ..."(PMM) and his influence was noted by figures as diverse as Mill, Newman, Gladstone and Macaulay. It would indeed be pleasant if the ownership signature conformed to Thomas Ludlam (1727-1811), the theologian, disciple of Locke, and staunch advocate of the application of reason in the analysis of religious experiences.
