        La Verità senza velo circa il buon governo dello Stato d'un sovrano, dedicata con tutta l'umiltà all Altezza Serenisssima Elettorale di Clemente Augusto arcivescovo di Colonia [Clemens August de Wittelsbach] (.).

      Vérone, Dionisio Ramanzini 1737 - in-4, [5] ff. n. ch. (faux-titre et titre, dédicace), 382 pp., avec un frontispice allégorique gravé par P. Wyon, cartonnage crème souple modeste, dos lisse (reliure de l'époque). Exemplaire un peu déboîté, plats salis. Demeuré anonyme, ce Traité du bon gouvernement dédié à Clément-Auguste de Bavière (1700-1761), qui devint archevêque-électeur de Cologne à la mort de son oncle Joseph-Clément en 1723, semble idéalement fait pour le prince fastueux et énergique, qui, les yeux rivés vers le modèle de Versailles, mena dans son Electorat ecclésiastique une politique éclairée, tant extérieure qu'intérieure, tant séculière que spirituelle. La date de parution n'est peut-être pas sans rapport avec la mort de son ancien ministre Wilhelm Ferdinand von Plettenberg, survenue en mars 1737 : l'homme avait été disgracié en 1733, par suite d'une intrigue de Cour, et s'était réfugié à Vienne, mais il conservait un parti dans les Etats de l'archevêque, un parti pro-autrichien (après son renvoi, l'Electeur s'était orienté vers l'alliance française). Un seul exemplaire au CCF (BnF). Exemplaire du "comte de Tauffkürch", avec ex-libris manuscrit au titre, en lequel il faut sans doute reconnaître Adam Johann Joseph Anton, comte de Tauffkirchen (1693-1758), dont le domaine s'étandait à côté de Munich.

        Flora Lapponica exhibens Plantas per Lapponiam Crescentes, secundam Systema Sexuale Collectas in Itinere... Additis Synonymis, & Locis Natalibus Omnium, Descriptionibus & Figuris Rariorum, Viribus Medicatis & Occonomicis Plurimarum.

      Amsterdam, Salomonem Schouten, 1737. 8vo. Bound in a fine later (around 1900) red hcalf with raisd bands, titlelabel in leather with gilt lettering. Compartments profusely gilt (G. Hedberg, Stockholm). Marbled top-edge, otherwise UNCUT throughout. Engraved frontispiece. Titlepage in red/black. (40),372,(38) pp. and 12 folded engraved plates. A few scattered brownspots. A copy printed on good paper.. Scarce first edition of greatest importence as it is one of the first works in which Linné worked out his binomial nomenclature, and of "prime importance for the nomenclature of Arctic-Alpine species".Linnaeus set out from Uppsala on his journey into Lapland on 12 May 1732, and returned to Uppsala on 10 October, after adventures in snow and sleet and among 'novelties in all three kingdoms of nature', including many new plants. All this he recorded in diary and catalogue... Linnaeus worked on the present volume during his sojourn in Leyden and at the Clifford estate at Hartecamp in Holland. A Society was formed at Amsterdam to defray the expenses of the plates.., and the 'Flora Lapponica' came forth in 1737, just ahead of the 'Geneve plantarum' and the 'Hortus Cliffortianus'. Botanists had waited for it expectantly, and they received it with accaim. (Hunt No. 502)."The journey was the most adventurous that Linnaeus ever made; it has been assessed by his fellow-countrymen as the most fruitful single scientific expedition ever made in Sweden both for its immediate botanical results and its influence on Linnaeus's later career. It led to the publication in 1737 of his Flora Lapponica which is of prime importance for the nomenclature of Arctic-Alpine species; Linnaeus's Lapland specimens, on which this was based, are in Paris." (The Linnaean Correspondance).Hulth: p. 21 - Soulsby: No. 279

        The Civil Law in its Natural Order: Together with the Publick Law

      1737. Domat, Jean [1625-1696]. Strahan, William, Translator. The Civil Law in its Natural Order: Together with the Publick Law. Written in French by Monsieur Domat: And Translated into English by William Strahan, LL.D. With Additional Remarks on Some Material Differences between the Civil Law and the Law of England. London: Printed for D. Midwinter [et al.], 1737. Two volumes. Main text in parallel columns. Folio (13-1/2" x 8-1/2"). Contemporary calf, gilt rules to boards, raised bands and recent period-style lettering pieces to spines. Moderate rubbing with some wear to spine ends and corners, boards beginning to separate (but secure), front free endpaper of Volume I partially detached, following endleaf completely detached, armorial bookplate (Viscount Dorone) to pastedowns of both volumes. Some toning to text, heavier toning and light foxing in places, internally clean. A handsome copy. * Second English edition, "with additions." Domat's Civil Law is a great work that combines the materials of Roman and French law into a single system and places it on a foundation of ethical principles. "The Civil Law in its Natural Order, considering the age and the circumstances in which it was written, is a truly wonderful performance. His method is excellent, and his matter clear, exact, and comprehensive. Pothier, and other continental jurists, have drawn largely upon him to assist their own labors" (Marvin). Holdsworth says this edition is better than Wood's incomplete 1705 translation. "Strahan's translation...is a very much more considerable book, both as a book on Roman law, and, by reason of the translator's notes, as a book on comparative law.": Holdsworth, History of English Law XII:428. Marvin, Legal Bibliography (1847) 271. English Short-Title Catalogue T96069.

Valerius Catullus Veronensis et in eum Jo: Antonii Vulpii Eloquentiae Professoris in Gymnasio Patavino Novus Commentarius Locupletissimus. Patavii [Padua]: Josephus Cominus, 1737. First separate Volpi edition, originally issued collectively with Albius Tibullus E.R., and Sex. Aurelius Propertius (1710), here with material not found in that earlier edition. Quarto (10 5/8 x 7 1/2 in; 270 x 189 mm). xl, 608, [1, errata], [1, colophon], [2, blank] pp. Title page engraving. Head- tailpieces. Historiated initial. Includes Vopi's essay, De Metris Catulli, commentary, bibliographical references and index.Contemporary full vellum. Calf spine label. All edges dappled in red and yellow. Stab-stitch holes manifest. Text block crisp and clean. A remarkable copy of a scarce book, here in its fine original eighteenth century vellum binding with decorated edges.No copies have come to auction within the last thirty-six years."'This is in every respect,' says Dr. Harwood, 'the best edition of Catullus yet published; the text is exhibited in a more correct manner, and the notes of Vulpius are very valuable.' According to Ernesti and Harles, the notes of Vulpius are not so much in emendation of the text, as in illustration of the poet by selecting parallel passages from ancient and modern writers" (Dibdin I, p. 245)."Gian Antonio Volpi, born at Padua in 1686, studied in his native town and became a good Latin and Greek scholar. In 1717 he and his brother Gaetano Volpi established a printing press in their house for the purpose of bring out correct editions of classic authors, and they engaged for their assistant the printer Giuseppi Comino. This press - known by the name Volpi-Cominiana, produced among others a valuable edition of Catullus with copious notes. The edition was much commended by scholars, and the city of Verona struck a gold medal, which was presented to Volpi" (Long, George. The Supplement to the Penny Cyclopedia of the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge, p. 699.For many years professor of philosophy and rhetoric at University of Padua, Volpi went blind in his old age and died in 1766.

        Broadside from Charles VI, Holy Roman Emperor, announcing alliance with Russia in their war with the Ottoman Empire

      1737. Paperback. Near Fine. Decree of Charles VI, Holy Roman Emperor, announcing that he will be an ally of RUssia in their war with the Ottoman Empire (1735-1738). After the announcement, there follows an offer to peoples under Ottoman rule to surrender, and for those who want freedom from the Turks there is a description of priveleges that will be granted to them (i.e. freedom from pillage and plunder by his army). The document is dated June 1737, with the space for the day of the month left blank. Charles VI (1 October 1685 – 20 October 1740) was the penultimate Habsburg sovereign of the Habsburg Empire. He succeeded his elder brother, Joseph I, as Holy Roman Emperor, King of Bohemia (Charles II), Hungary and Croatia (Charles III), Archduke of Austria, etc., in 1711. He unsuccessfully claimed the throne of Spain as Charles III following the death of its ruler, and Charles's relative, Charles II of Spain, in 1700. This is a particularly fine broadside, with woodcut initial, and what may be the signature of "Carolus VI" (or a clerk of his) at the bottom left, with further undecipherable text underneath. Lower right has the signature of Johannes Christopherus Bartenstein. Printed on thick, laid paper, folded; measures 36x41cm, or 14x16.25in.

Idque omne, progressu a Libris mere Euopaeis (de Sina tamen) ad Libros mere Sinicos, facto.

      Chez Musier [et al.], Paris 1737 - Folio [33.5 cm x 22 cm]. (4) ff, xxvi, (2) ff, 152 pp, plus large folding chart of vocalized characters. Bound in contemporary velum over boards with gilt title label on spine. One or two signatures significantly toned, pages otherwise clean and fresh. A pleasant and very genuine copy. Scarce first and sole edition of the author¿s first work: an elaborate treatise on the Chinese [South Mandarin] language, ¿the second grammar to be published in Europe, preceded only by Bayer¿s grammatical account [St. Petersburg, 1730]¿ (Löwendahl). Fourmont¿s Meditationes Sinicae is also notable as being the first work printed with engraved Chinese type in France. The attractively-printed folio treatise introduces the reader to the Kangxi system of 214 radicals, still in use today as a method of learning Chinese. Fourmont calls this system of forming characters the ¿Clavis Sinica¿, using it as a departure point for his discussion of tones, linguistic ancestry, and even a thorough review of known literature (both European and Chinese) on the Chinese language. The present work is significant in the history of Oriental typography, representing the first use of the petits chinois typeset created at the behest of Louis XIV, the first Chinese type produced in France. ¿With the support of the Regent, the Duke of Orleans, and of [Jean-Paul] Bignon, Fourmont accomplished the engraving of 80,000 characters for the printing of his [proposed] dictionaries and grammars. This was an ambitious project, since no Chinese engravers were available in Paris. Fourmont had to train French craftsmen, seeing to it that the strokes were scrupulously copied and properly placed for each character. The models were taken from a Chinese dictionary [Pin tse tien / Pin zijian]. The engraving commenced in 1720, and there were seven craftsmen to begin with, the work lasting twenty years in all¿ (Leung, p. 243). Fourmont (1683-1745) was appointed in 1711 to assist Arcadio Huang, a Chinese Christian convert brought to Paris to promote the learning of Chinese. After Huang¿s death, Fourmont was placed in charge of the Chinese scholar¿s papers. Both Fourmont¿s Meditationes Sinicae and his Grammatica Sinica (1742) are said to draw heavily on Huang¿s own unpublished work. OCLC shows seven US copies: NYPL, Yale, Newberry, Chicago, Allegheny College (PA), Cornell, and Columbia. * Cordier BS III, 1658-60; Lowendahl 402; cf also Leung, Etienne Fourmont (1683¿1745): Oriental and Chinese Languages in Eighteenth-Century France [Attributes: Hard Cover]
