      Leiden / Rotterdam: Apud Samuelem Luchtman / Apud Johannem Danielem Beman, 1737. First Edition thus. Vellum. Fine. The much-praised Oudendorp edition, in two quarto volumes bound in one: [26],516;[2],517-1035,[33] pp, with additional engraved title page (signed F. v. BleysWyck), 3 engraved folding maps (of the Roman Empire, France, and Spain), portrait of Caesar, and 9 engraved plates (4 folding). Plates are are those of the Greave edition of 1713. Full vellum, covers paneled in gilt with floral device at corners and large armorial center ornament; spine divided into six compartments by gilt-ruled raised bands, center floral ornament in each, second lettered by hand; armorial book plate of Royal Military College to front paste down and small old stamp of Her Majestie's Stationary Office to recto of dedication leaf; replacement salmon-pink ribbon ties; title page and divisional title in red and black with woodcut vignette.

Dibdin (Greek and Latin Classics), pp. 363-64. Schweiger II, p. 46-47. Pökel, p. 197. Ebert 3282. Graesse II, p. 8. Brunet I, pp. 1456-57 (bonne édition). Moss I, p. 236 "An excellent edition."). First Oudendorp Edition, celebrated for the rigor of its scholarship and faithfulness of its translation. Dibdin calls it an "admirable and truly critical edition, comprehending the labours of Davis, Clarke and Vossius. 'The preceding commentaries on Caesar,' says Harles, 'have all been eclipsed by the skill and researches of Oudendorp; who, by a careful examination of numerous MSS. and editions, has often successfully restored the true ancient reading of his author'". To which Ebert adds: "A new and excellent recension of MSS. and old editions, and a good selection of annotations." Composed of eight books, the Gallic Wars is "Julius Caesar's account of his campaigns in Gaul from 58 to 52 BCE, with the eighth and final book added by Aulus Hirtius for the years 51-50 BCE. . . . Caesar gives surprising space to the exploits of centurions and legions, as though the contribution of non-senatorial citizens is one of his prime concerns. It is tempting to think that he is both claiming and parading a particular relationship with the lesser citizens of Rome and Italy. . . . The Gauls are not deployed according to barbarian stereotypes . . . Gallic and German leaders communicate articulately in Roman terms, Gallic armies are highly formidable, and some Gauls are allies."

      London: printed by J. Hughs, near Lincoln’s-Inn-Fields, for J. Brindley, bookseller to his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, at the King’s-Arms in New-Bond-Street; and C. Corbett, at Addison’s Head, against St. Dunstan’s Church, Fleet-street, , MDCCXXXVII [1737]. Full Calf. Fine. Complete in five volumes. 12mo: iii-xxii,iii-viii,cxxxiv,135-384; iii-x,11-251,[1]; xx,367[2 misnumbered 22],[5]; iii-xc,281,[13, including two final advertisement leaves]; lxiv,267,[5]pp, with 15 copper-engraved plates (11 of which are folding, one of which is a map), numerous head- and tailpieces, and a woodcut in the text. An excellent set, beautifully bound by Fitterer in period-style butterscotch cat's-paw calf, spines in six compartments between raised bands ruled in gilt, red morocco lettering pieces gilt, all edges gilt, marbled end papers, title pages (all five of which are cancels) printed in red and black. Lowndes 2033. ESTC Citation No. T13265. The first complete and scholarly edition in English. Principally the story of two giants, a father (Gargantua) and his son (Pantagruel), and their adventures, presented as a connected series of five novels written in the 16th century in an extravagant, satirical vein featuring much crudity, scatological humor, and violence (the censors of the Sorbonne stigmatized the novels as obscene). While the first two books focus on the lives of the giants, the rest of the series is mostly devoted to the adventures of Pantagruel's friends, including Panurge, a roguish erudite maverick, and Brother Jean, a bold, voracious and boozing ex-monk, and others on a collective naval journey in search of the Divine Bottle. "Reading Rabelais is no easy matter. His language constitutes an initial obstacle. Replete with clerical, medical, legal, philosophical, scholastic terms and terminology, various classical, foreign, or invented tongues, provincial dialects and urban slang, poems, anagrams, abbreviations, sounds, names, and quotations, his writing displays one of the most varied and extensive lexical ranges of any world author. Intertextuality is rampant, usually displaced by willful distortion. And more is suggested than said, making every word even more polyvalent. Equally disturbing is his recounting the story of a family of giants in a learned, highly literary language. Ultimate meaning, frequently glimpsed but forever elusive, is another. So much so that there are almost as many readings of his works as readers, a positive sign of their successful resistance to any definitive interpretation and a sure criterion of their literariness." (Floyd Gray, "Reading the works of Rabelais," The Cambridge Companion to Rabelais.) Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition.

        Die Kunst zu Fliegen nach Art der Vögel.

      First and only edition of this rare and intriguing little work on mechanical flight by Carl Friederich Meerwein (1737-1810), architect and engineer to the Prince of Baden. Meerwein was a very early aeronautical theorist and experimenter, and in this volume he discusses "how to fly in the manner of birds. First, he argues that humans cannot fly like birds because of issues such as their anatomy and gravity. However, he did believe that machines could be constructed, using rotors, which could fly and be steered" (Lynn, The Sublime Invention, p. 55). Meerwein's theoretical contribution to the study of flight was to derive the size of the wings needed to lift a human. The flying apparatus he designed, and which is illustrated in the two plates in this volume, consisted of "two light wooden frames (shaped, when outspread, like the longitudinal section of a spindle) covered with calico, hinged at the centre, and affording a slightly concave surface of 111 feet. Meerwein was probably the first to calculate the area of wing surface necessary to support a man, and taking as a basis the weight and wing area of a wild duck, he laid down that a man with his machine weighing 200lb. would require about 126 square feet - an estimate the approximate accuracy of which was verified by Lilienthal. But Meerwein's attempt to experiment with his machine at Giessen was not successful - indeed it would have been impossible to work the wings with anything like sufficient rapidity to raise himself from the ground" (Hodgson, The History of Aeronautics in Great Britain, p. 44). Meerwein's book is rare - we can only locate copies in the British Library and the Bavarian State Library - and this copy is the only one that appears in auction records. It is very attractive in the original wrappers and with the plates in excellent, fresh condition. Mit Kupfern. Frankfurt & Basel: H. L. Bronner and J. J. Thurnensen, 1784. Octavo. Original paper wrappers. 2 folding engraved plates. The leaves are untrimmed save for the extreme lower edge of the title. Spine chipped and repaired. Contents fresh. Excellent condition.

        Meijer, Hendrik - Dutch ice skating/winter scene.

      HOLLANDSE WINTER SCENETekening van Hendrik Meijer (ook wel Hendrick de Meyer) (1737 -1793) in pen en zwarte inkt, grijs gewassen, over zwart potlood. Afm. 21 x 32,5 cm. Gesigneerd linksonder en gedateerd 1764.De tekening is topografisch niet goed te duiden. Op het eerste gezicht lijkt men de Amsterdam te herkennen: de Oude Kerk, een scheepswerf, een veerhuisje met er naast een hijskraan, twee ophaalbruggen en grote pakhuizen met Hollandse gevels. De manier waarop deze elementen zijn samengebracht echter, komen niet overeen met het Amsterdamse stadsbeeld.In de weken of maanden dat de winter de alledaagse activiteiten op het water stilzette en het ijs het domein van sport, spel en vertier werd, verplaatsten ook markthandelaren hun nering naar deze vlakte. In koek-en-zopie tenten werden versnapering verkocht, maar ook andere producten die in de smaak van de verpozende menigte konden vallen.Volgens Immerzeel (1842) zijn Meijer?s ?ordonnanties rijk en geestig, en zijne stoffaadje allerliefst van teekening en altijd in overvloed aangebragt. Zijne goede teekeningen worden door de onbevooroordeelde liefhebbers geschat en bewaard.??Prijs: ?4.150,- (incl. lijst).

      En la oficina de Francisco Martinez Abad, 1737. Antonio de León Pinelo (1589-1660) was a Spanish-colonial historian. Born in Cordova de Tucuman and educated at the Jesuit college of Lima, he left the New World for Spain in 1612 and there enjoyed a highly successful career, becoming attorney of the Council of the Indies and later a judge in the Casa de Contratacion in Seville. His Epitome was originally published in Madrid in 1629 and is here in the second edition as => enlarged and annotated by Andres Gonzalez de Barcia: It was the first bibliography for the field of Americana and to this day it remains a important source for scholars and collectors of the colonial era of the New World for its => wealth of bibliographic data and most especially information about manuscripts. Rich says of this edition that it is, "The most complete general bibliography of geographical works, travels, missionary reports, etc." And LeClerc echoes him: "ouvrage extremement important pour la bibliographie americaine." The work is handsomely printed (although erratic in its pagination and signature markings), in double-column format, featuring title-pages in black and red with an engaging small engraved vignette of a ship between pillars reading "Plus" and "Ultra." Provenance: Ownership stamp of Carlos Sanz in several places.

[xxxvi]+540+[15 index] pages with title in red and black, frontispiece and ten additional plates, one folding map and index; xxiii+373+[iv] pages with title in red and black, five plates with one folding and two folding maps. Royal octavo (9 3/4" x 7 1/2") bound in contemporary calf with six raised spine bands with black and red labels in three compartment lettered in gilt, half titles in both volumes. (Palau 85403; Sabin 98752). Provence The Explorers Club Collection. This French translation of Vega is noted for its fine plates after Picart and includes maps of the Mississippi region with Hennepin's Discovery of a Country greater than Eyurope, Florida and northern New Spain, later Texas. This two volume set contains two of his most famous works. In volume one the Comentarios Reales de los Incas (part 1: 1609; part 2, the Historia General del Peru was published posthumously in 1617). In volume two La Florida del Inca was published in Lisbon (1605). Garcilaso de la Vega, the "Inca," was born Gomez Suarez de Figueroa in Cuzco on April 12th, 1539. His father was the prominent conquistador captain Sebastian Garcilaso de la Vega y Vargas. His mother was Isabel Suarez Chimpu Ocllo, niece of Inca Huaina Capac and concubine to the Spanish captain. Her status as Inca princess and mother of his first-born son did not prevent Sebastian Garcilaso from later marrying a well-born Spanish woman (dona Luisa Martel, who was only four years older than Gomez) and marrying Isabel off to a commoner (Juan del Pedroche). Their son was thus one of the first Peruvian mestizos, and both sides of the family took care to ensure that he was exposed to the traditions of their respective cultures. He learned first Quechua and then Spanish before embarking on an elementary study of Latin in Cuzco. The first volume of this history recounts the origins and rise of the Inca empire, using accounts sent by native friends in Peru as well as Garcilaso's own childhood memories which were filled with stories handed down by Inca relatives. Again, the overall impression conveyed by the work is that the Incas ruled their realm wisely and well, on the classical model of pagan Rome. Their only real flaw was their unwitting idolatry, and Garcilaso lauded Spanish attempts at proselytization. His message, however, was clear: the Incas were a noble people deserving to be treated with respect and perhaps allowed a role in the governance of their own territories. With the publication of the Florida, Garcilaso's attention returned to the New World. For years he had collaborated with Gonzalo Silvestre, a survivor of de Soto's expedition to what are now the southeastern United States, to give an epic account of that voyage. Garcilaso's narrative used classical allusions to at once make the conquistadors into heroic figures and depict the Indians as noble pagans analogous to the ancient Romans and Greeks. The Explorers Club is an American-based international multidisciplinary professional society with the goal of promoting scientific exploration and field study. The club was founded in New York City, and has served as a meeting point for explorers and scientists worldwide. In 1904, a group of men active in exploration met at the request of Henry Collins Walsh, to form an organization to unite explorers in the bonds of good fellowship and to promote the work of exploration by every means in its power. Among these men were Adolphus Greely, Donaldson Smith, Henry Collins Walsh, Carl Lumholtz, Marshall Saville, Frederick Dellenbaugh, and David Brainard. After several further informal meetings, The Explorers Club was incorporated on October 25, 1905. Women were first admitted in 1981, with a class including Sylvia Earle and Kathryn Sullivan.

Méthode et invention nouvelle de dresser les chevaux par le très-noble, haut, et très-puissant Prince Guillaume marquis et comte de Newcastle vicomte de Mansfield, baron de Bolsover et Ogle ; seigneur de Cavendish, Bothel et Hepwel ; Pair d’Angleterre ; qui eut la charge et l’honneur d’être Gouverneur du Serenissime Prince de Galles en sa jeunesse, maintenant Roy de la Grande-Bretagne [ ] Œuvre auquel on apprend à travailler les chevaux selon la nature, & à parfaire la nature par la subtilité de l’art : traduit de l’Anglois de l’Auteur, par son commandement ; & enrichy de plus de quarante belles figures en taille-douce. A Londres, chez Jean Brindley, 1737. Un volume grand in-folio ; veau blond d’époque, dos orné de caissons à motifs dorés et titre doré, armes au centre du premier plat, tranches dorées. Frontispice, titre, (5) (dont - dédicace de l’éditeur Jean Brindley à la comtesse d’Oxford, arrière-petite-fille de Newcastle, - Avertissement sur cette seconde édition,- lettre dédicatoire de l’auteur au Roy de la Grande-Bretagne), 236 pages, 42 planches. Seconde édition de ce remarquable ouvrage sur l’art de dresser les chevaux, par William Cavendish. L’illustration, identique à celle de l’édition originale de 1657 parue à Anvers, se compose d’un très beau frontispice à double page gravé d’après Abraham van Diepenbeke et de 42 belles estampes à double page montées sur onglets. Cette seconde édition, bien mieux imprimée que la précédente, utilise les mêmes estampes et jusqu’au frontispice. L’édition originale publiée à Anvers pendant l’exil de l’auteur est extrêmement rare, une partie de l’édition ayant brûlé dans le magasin du libraire. Dans cette édition, la lettre de Newcastle à ses fils (Charles Vicomte de Mansfield, et Henry Cavendish) est comprise dans la pagination et occupe les 3 premières pages. La conclusion au lecteur et les additions qui forment un supplément paginé à part dans la 1ère édition, occupent dans celle-ci, les pages 215 à 231. William Cavendish, 1er Duc de Newcastle (1592-1676), grand seigneur, homme de guerre, et célèbre écuyer anglais. Nommé gouverneur du prince de Galles en 1638, il mit sa fortune et son armée au service des rois Jacques Ier, Charles Ier et Charles II. Mais la jalousie des grands seigneurs et les guerres l’amenèrent à s’exiler à Anvers, ruiné. S’étant de tout temps occupé d’élevage et d’équitation et ayant acquis une grande expérience dans ce domaine, il fit construire un manège et acheta plusieurs chevaux.
