      Paris: Chez Musier [et al.], 1737. Hardcover. Very Good. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. 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 Both Fourmont's Meditationes Sinicae and his Grammatica Sinica (1742) are said to draw heavily on Huang's own unpublished work.

Folio, 375 x 240 mm, 14¾ x 9½ inches, LACKING ALL PRELIMS AND TITLE PAGE, contains 47 hand coloured engraved plates each depicting 1 plant, numbered 1-7, 9-48, text pages 1-24, describing Plates 1-48, bound in old half calf, marbled boards, raised bands and gilt rules to spine, gilt lettered red morocco label. Boards rubbed with loss of marbled paper, corner pieces worn, hinges starting to crack at top and bottom, top of lower hinge slightly chipped, head and tail of spine very slightly chipped, inner paper hinges cracked, old book seller's label on front pastedown, first page of text slightly foxed and with small pale damp stain to lower margin, 4 tiny ink marks to upper margin of 1 text page, small brown spot in upper margin of 1 text page, showing very faintly in blank area at top of facing plate, 1 text page a little dusty, not affecting facing plate, otherwise contents clean and bright, very faint offsetting to a few plates from the preceding plate. Binding tight and firm. Offered as a collection of 47 hand coloured botanical plates. Elizabeth Blackwell undertook to produce A Curious Herbal in order to raise the money to obtain the release of her husband, imprisoned for debts. She drew and engraved the plates, he assisted with the text which consisted of a brief description of the plant, where it could be found, time of flowering, uses in medicine and names in various languages. The work was first published in 1737-38 in two volumes containing a total of 500 hand coloured plates. The dimensions of our book would indicate that it is taken from either the first edition or an early reissue. See Blanche Henrey, British Botanical and Horticultural Literature before 1800, Volume II, page 230-235 and Volume III, Nos 450, 452 and 453. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING.

        La Verité des Miracles operés par l'intercession de M. de Paris, demontrée contre M. l'Archevêque de Sens. Ouvrage dedié au Roy.

      A Utrecht, Chez les Libraires de la Compagnie, 1737. 1737 In-4° (261x195mm), pp. (8), XXVIII, 32, 63, XXVIII, 79, XXXVIII, 52, XXX, 74, LVI, 56, XXVII, 44, XVIII, 39, XVII, (1), 52, XXVIII, 32, XX, 28, (1) di errata (la paginazione è autonoma per ciascun resoconto miracolos). Legatura coeva p. vitello con triplo ordine di filetti dorati ai piatti. Dorso a 5 nervi decorati in oro con titolo in oro entro tassello e ricchi fregi dorati entro scomparti. Tagli dorati, unghie decorate in oro, sguardie a piuma di pavone. Frontespizio in rosso e in nero con vignetta calcografica. Antiporta incisa su rame con François de Paris in adorazione del Crocifisso e altre 19 tavv. calcografiche f.t. di elegante fattura raffiguranti eventi e guarigioni miracolose, di cui una su doppia pag. rappresentante il pellegrinaggio alla tomba dell'ecclesiastico. Le incisioni sono di Pieter Yver da disegno di Jean Restout. Magnifico esemplare. Seconda edizione, immediatamente posteriore alla prima, di questo resoconto degli eventi prodigiosi operati da François de Paris (Parigi, 1690-ivi, 1727), Diacono della chiesa parigina. Alla sua morte il religioso venne inumato nel cimitero di Saint-Médard e i giansenisti sparsero rapidamente la voce che sul suo sepolcro fossero avvenute delle guarigioni portentose. Tali voci dettero origine anche a fenomeni di isteria convulsiva (che riguardarono anche il fratello di Voltaire, Armand Arouet) e a lunghe processioni sulla tomba dell'ecclesiastico, tali da far decidere al clero parigino di chiudere il cimitero, sui cui muri venne scritto, alcuni giorni dopo, in segno di scherno: "De par le roi, défense à Dieu De faire miracle en ce lieu". Il Montgeron si era recato a Saint-Médard prima della sua chiusura con atteggiamento del tutto scettico, volendo provare la falsità dei miracolo di cui si narrava, ma il suo scetticismo ebbe a decadere; egli divenne un ardente seguace spirituale di François de Paris e scrisse il presente libro proprio per affermare la verità dei miracoli attribuitigli. La prima tiratura, di 5000 copie, era stata impressa a Parigi senza luogo di stampa e senza indicazioni tipografiche, ma tale impressione venne rapidamente sequestrata e in gran parte distrutta in un rogo dinanzi alla Bastiglia. Lo stesso Montgeron per aver osato presentare copia del volume al Re di Francia e al Duca di Orléans venne incarcerato alla Bastiglia e poi a Valence, dove si spense dopo 17 anni di carcerazione nel 1754. Caillet I, 2039. Cohen - De Ricci, 733. Dorbon, 628. Sander, 1392. Rosenthal, BMP, 1591. Lipperheide, Fb 27. Waller, 1783.

Un profilo biografico è dedicato a San Vigilio, vescovo e martire, patrono di Trento. Alcuni profili di Santi, soprattutto dei primi tempi cristiani, risentono molto delle ?leggende? della tradizione popolare, tant?é che alcuni Santi vengono descritti come imparentati con Gesù Cristo.

        Bybel der Natuure, of Historie der Insecten.

      Biblia Naturae; sive Historia Insectorum, in classes certas redacta, nec non exemplis, et anatomico variorum animalculorum examine, aeneisque tabulis illustrata ... Accedit praefatio, in qua vitam Auctoris descripsit Hermannus Boerhaave ... Leydae, I. Severinus, B. & P. van der Aa, 1737-1738. 2 volumes. Folio (348 x 230mm). pp. (60), 1-550; pp. (4), 551-910, 124, (36), with 5 titles printed in red and black, 5 engraved title-vignettes and 53 folded engraved plates. Contemporary calf, richly gilt decorated spines in 8 compartments with 2 red gilt lettered labels, frontcovers with gilt coat of arms with monogram N.G (small repair to head of spine of the second volume). "The Biblia Naturae is the finest collection of microscopical observations ever produced by one worker ... The book is consulted by naturalists to this day. Some of the figures have never been excelled ..." (Singer). The scarce original edition with Latin and Dutch text printed in double columns. "Despite a scientific career that lasted only a dozen years, Swammerdam was one of the oustanding comparative anatomists of the seventeenth century. His most remarkable work was in the field of insect anatomy, which he undertook in order to disprove still-current Aristotelian notions (which he opposed upon religious grounds) that insects lack internal anatomy, develop by metamorphosis (sudden and complete transformation) and arise from spontaneous generation. By refining his techniques of microdissection and injection to the point where he could use them on the smallest and most delicate anatomical parts, Swammerdam was able to illustrate for the first time the complex internal structures of insects, including their reproductive organs; and to demonstrate the gradual development of an insect's adult form throughout all its larval stages. These observations are 'indubitable the foundation of our modern knowledge of the structure, metamorphosis and classification of insects' (Cole, p. 285). In addition Swammerdam performed valuable investigations of crustaceans, mollusks and frogs, and was the first to prove experimentally that muscles do not increase in bulk when contracted via nerve stimulation. "The 'Biblia naturae', Swammerdam's major work, was published fifty-five years after his death by Hermann Boerhave ... the fifty-three copperplates were prepared under Swammerdam's direction from his own drawings" (Haskell F. Norman Library of Science & Medicine, 2037). A number of plates depict molluscs, frogs and crustaceans. A beautifully bound and well preserved copy. Nissen ZBI, 4055.

Ab 1661 nahm er ein Medizin-Studium an der Universität Leiden auf, ging 1664 nach Paris, kehrte ein Jahr später zurück nach Leiden und Amsterdam und wurde 1667 zum Dr. med. promoviert. 1675 veröffenltichte er seine Abhandlungen zur Naturgeschichte der Insekten. Er erkannte, dass die Königin das einzige fortpflanzungsfähige Weibchen des Bienenvolkes ist und stellte fest, dass die Metamorphose der Insekten nichts anderes ist als Entfaltung und Wachstum bereits vorhandener Anlagen. Weitere wichtige Studien befassen sich mit dem Lebenszyklus der Frösche und mit dem Bau der weiblichen Geschlechtsorgane des Menschen.

His most remarkable work was in the field of insect anatomy, which he undertook in order to disprove still-current Aristotelian notions (which he opposed upon religious grounds) that insects lack internal anatomy, develop by metamorphosis (sudden and complete transformation) and arise from spontaneous generation. By refining his techniques of microdissection and injection to the point where he could use them on the smallest and most delicate anatomical parts, Swammerdam was able to illustrate for the first time the complex internal structures of insects, including their reproductive organs; and to demonstrate the gradual development of an insect's adult form throughout all its larval stages. These observations are 'indubitable the foundation of our modern knowledge of the structure, metamorphosis and classification of insects' (Cole, p. 285). In addition Swammerdam performed valuable investigations of crustaceans, mollusks and frogs, and was the first to prove experimentally that muscles do not increase in bulk when contracted via nerve stimulation. "The 'Biblia naturae', Swammerdam's major work, was published fifty-five years after his death by Hermann Boerhave ... the fifty-three copperplates were prepared under Swammerdam's direction from his own drawings" (Haskell F. Norman Library of Science & Medicine, 2037)

      3 Bände. Folio. (8 Bl.), 404 S. - 371 S. - (8 Bl.), 404 S. Schöne Halblederbände im Stil der Zeit mit Rückenschild und Rückenvergoldung. Unbeschnitten. 3 Bände. Das Werk dieses "klassischen Schriftstellers über gerichtliche Medizin" (Gurlt) dokumentiert Haeser II, 1081 zufolge einen entschiedenen Fortschritt in der gerichtlichen Medizin, vor allem gegenüber den Anfängen dieser Disziplin wie z. B. den Schriften des Fortunato Fidele und der Bamberger peinlichen Gerichtsordnung. - Hirsch/H. V, 1020/21; Gurlt II, 572-575 (ausführlich); Garrison/Morton 1720 zur Ausg. 1621-61: "Zacchias, a Papal physician, was one of the founders of medical jurisprudence. His treatise includes information concerning injuries of the eye, etc., and contains section on the medico-legal aspects of insanity." - Zacchia (1584-1659), war seit 1644 Leibarzt der Päpste Innocenz X. und Alexander VII. und Protomedicus des Kirchenstaates. "Er war ein außerordentlich gelehrter, in allen Zweigen des Wissens wohl erfahrener Mann, auch poetisch begabt, literarisch gewandt und selbst ein geschickter Maler und tüchtiger Kenner der Musik. Für die Medicin hat er die Bedeutung, dass er als der eigentliche Begründer der gerichtlichen Medicin anzusehen ist; in dieser Hinsicht ist sein Amt als Consulent der Rota Romana, des Obersten Gerichtshofes des Kirchenstaates, von besonderem Wert" (H.H.). - "Giustamente affermano tutti gli storici della medicina che il merito di aver dato origine a questa brance della scienza medica va ascritto incontestabilmente all'Italia: sono medici italiani del '600 e del '700, scrive il Sudhoff, ai quali spetta il vanto di aver dato per i primi forma sistematica e sintetica alla medicina legale e di averne fatto una disciplina a sé. Zacchia fuun uomo di vastissimo sapere, medico di Papa Innocenze X, il quale gli affido i piu delicati incharichi relativi alla pubblica salute e quindi lo chiamo a dirigere il servizio sanitario dello Stato Pontificio" (Castiglioni, Storia della medicina, 487). - Sehr gut erhalten und nur vereinzelt gering fleckig.

      Hamburg, Koenigiana, 1737. 4:o. (16),+ 272,+ (18) s. Grav. titel- och slutvinjett. Lätta småfläckar och små fuktstänk. Nött samtida skinnband, rikt guldornerad rygg med titeletikett av pergament, pärmarna med spegeldekor, stänksnitt. Trasig i främre fals nedtill och i övre kapitäl. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Bibl. danica I, sp. 626. Fiske 23. Warmholtz 1308. Juristen och historikern P. F. Arpes (1682-1740) sista bok, en kritisk genomgång av källorna till folkvandringsfolkens ursprung och vandringar, liksom om deras samhällsliv, rättsväsen etc. Han ställer sig, till Warmholtz stora förtret, kritisk till flera folks förmenta nordiska ursprung. Kraftiga anmärkningar emot Arpe, och speciellt emot de här framförda "orättmätiga omdömen" (enligt Warmholtz) rörande de skånska antikviteterna, framfördes av Jonas Floraeus i ett bihang till dennes "Antiquitatis scanicae", från 1743, kallat Anti-Arpiana. Att boken finns med i Bibliotheca danica beror på att den anses behandla äldre dansk rätt. Arpe studerade även några år i Köpenhamn

      (PAULLI, Jacob Henrik.) Corfitz Ulfelds listige practicker. (Köpenhamn, 1737.) 8:o. (24) s. Fläckar och fuktränder, enstaka understrykningar med bläck och sista sidan mörknad. Titelbladet i prydlig äldre handskrift. Insatt i senare marmorerat omslag, detta sedan insatt i gammal och ganska nött halvfransk pärm. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Bibl. danica III, sp. 1537. Ehrencron-Müller s. 44. Den danska utgåvan finns både med 28 blad och som här med 12 blad. Den utkom först på latin, "Machinationes Cornificii Ulefeldii". Mycket ovanlig, närmast en folkskrift om landsförrädaren Ulfeldt. Författaren Jacob Henrik Paulli von Rosenschild (1637-1704) var dansk lärd, historiker och diplomat. Han blev utnämnd till professor i historia och 1668 kunglig historiograf. Han slog sig därpå in på den diplomatiska banan och 1669 blev han istället legationssekreterare i Holland. 1698 blev han justiteråd och adlades von Rosenschild. Denna lilla skrift om Corfitz Ulfeldt verkar vara det enda historiska arbete han skrev. Ingen upplaga verkar dock ha tryckts under hans livstid

Något nött pappband från mitten av 1800-talet, med brun skinnimiterande rygg och marmorerade pärmar. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek, med Carl Jedvard Bondes exlibris. Collijn sp. 961. Warmholtz 6511, 350 resp. 2563. Fiske, Runic literature s. 31. Carlander III, 564ff. Riksrådet Gustaf Bondes ättelängder, som består av fem tabeller, trycktes som inledning till Björners "Nordiska kämpadater". De återfinns dock emellanåt separat. Sista tabellen slutar dock med kustod till fortsättningen "Norriges upfindelse". Warmholtz fann dem värda all heder. Verelius "Notae" behandlar Uppsala tempel läge och ålder. Verelius skrev detta inlägg i striden mot Schefferus ursprungligen 1677, men det drabbades då av De la Gardies förbud och kunde inte ges ut. Verelius är här så arg att han uttrycker sig närmast ärekränkande och, trots att Schefferus vid utgivandet 1681 varit död i redan två år, drogs det omedelbart in genom ett upprört kungligt brev och nästan alla exemplar konfiskerades. En stor del av den resterande upplagan gick sedan förlorad vid Uppsala brand 1702. "Historia Hialmari" är andra utgåvan av Lucas Halpaps berömda falsarium av en "Hjálmers saga". Den publicerades först som dissertation under Johannes Bilberg 1690. Peringskiöld, upprymd av det fantastiska fyndet, ombesörjde denna nyutgåva med runskriften avritad i träsnitt jämte fornnordisk, latinsk och svensk uttolkning. Den publicerades sedan återigen 1705 i Hickes stora Theasurus. Falsariet avslöjades 1774 av C. G. Nordin, men blev ändå 1797 översatt till franska av Ch.

Inden for den såkaldte göticisme (svensk-chauvinistisk historieskrivning) tillagdes de islandske og norske sagaer enorm værdi som kilder til forne dages svensk storhed. ** Det meget sjældne førstetryk med den originale, supprimerede fortale. På side 7 i fortalen, som Björner ikke havde ladet underkaste censur, henviser han til den tyske oldforsker Caspar Sagittarius. Dennes ytringer kunne, hvis man absolut ville, opfattes som en skjult kritik af en af fløjene i den svenske Riksdag, der styrede landet i Frihetstiden efter den karolinske enevældes fald i 1718-19. Derfor blev det meste af oplaget beslaglagt, og Björner måtte udfærdige et nyt b-ark uden politisk brisans. Det nytrykte ark var først klar i begyndelsen af 1738, men bogen udsendtes alligevel med sit oprindelige trykkeår

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.

New surveys by Jesuit missionaries were begun in China in 1708 and on completion in 1718 were presented to the emperor, Kang-hi, who ordered further surveys. The resulting final, improved surveys were the actual models for the maps in this atlas.The atlas also includes one of the only, early, separate maps of Korea. In addition, a group of 10 maps relating to Tibet constitute the first detailed Western mapping of that area. The final map in the work shows the area of Bering's overland journey through northern Russia and also includes, according to Lada-Mocarski, "the first printed configuration of any part of Alaska, namely St. Lawrence Island."The cartouches of the maps of China in the atlas are quite elaborately pictorial, which is unusual for this period of French mapmaking. They depict scenes, artifacts, flora and fauna relating to China. They also display an interesting cultural cross fertilization: While they are still clearly Western in style, they do possess some of the delicacy of Chinese art. As a kind of reference to this, the cartouche of the map of today's Guangdong Province ("Quang-Tong") depicts a Western merchant admiring Chinese paintings in a marketplace.Tooley, Maps and Mapmakers, p.107; Lada-Mocarski, Bibliography of Books on Alaska, no.2, Phillips, Atlases 3189.

        Nicolai Cragii annalium libri VI.

      Quibus res Danicæ ab excessu regis Friderici I ac deinde a gloriosissimo rege Christiano III gestæ ad annum usque MDL enarrantur. His additi Stephani Jo. Stephanii Historicæ danicæ libri duo quibus reliqua laudatissimi regis acta describuntur. Cum præfatione, indicibus, & aliis quibusdam accessionibus. Köpenhamn, viduam Hieronymi Christiani Paulli, ex officina Ernesti Henrici Berlingii, 1737. Folio. (38),+ 352, 351-478,+ 139,+ (blank),+ 136,+ (36) pp. Titel tryckt i rött och svart. Enstaka småfläckar annars mycket fin inlaga med breda marginaler. Nött, men ståtligt samtida skinnband, blindpräglad rygg med upphöjda bind och röd titeletikett, grön- och rödmålade snitt. Med Pet. Julinschiölds namnteckning, daterad Uppsala 1765. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek, med Carl Jedvard Bondes exlibris klistrat över ett äldre. Bibl. danica III, sp. 53. Warmholtz 3025. Carlander II, 431 & III. 564ff. Saknar porträttet av Kristian III. Denna första tryckta utgåva av Krags stora biografi över kung Kristian III är utgiven postumt av Hans Gram, som även skrivit förordet. Den innehåller även ett omtryck av Stephanius historia om slutet av Kristian III:s regeringstid, som utgivits 1650 av Hans Svaning, samt diverse omtryck av olika hyllningstal och ett antal appendix, bl.a. ett med "Fundatio et ordinatio universalis scholæ Hafnisensis". Niels Krag (1550-1602) var professsor i grekiska och erfaren diplomat när han fick uppdraget att bli dansk rikshistoriograf, den första med denna titel, och order att på sex år skriva en ny allmän dansk historia på latin. Han skulle börja med Kristian III:s och Fredrik II:s tid, och sedan arbeta sig bakåt. Vid hans död 1602 lämnade han dock efter sig endast en ofullbordad historik över Kristian III, omfattande åren 1533-50. Opublicerad användes det dock av historiker som Meursius och Stephanius, innan det slutligen publicerades 1737. Ellen Jørgensen kallar det för dansk "humanistisk latinsk historieskrivnings bedste stycke" och Skovgaard-Petersen anser det vara ett banbrytande verk. Warmholtz berömmer framförallt Grams företal, men påpekar att ingen av författarna har glömt att de är danska historiographi. En dansk översättning utkom 1776. Peter Julinskiöld (1709-68) blev docent i Uppsala 1737, akademiräntemästare och slutligen hovintendent. Han adlades 1762 och skrev själv sitt namn Julinschiöld. Han blev rik, men råkade på 1760-talet i svårigheter och gjorde 1768 konkurs. Det visade sig då att han tillgripit sig stora summor ur universitetets kassa. Detta utsätter honom även för Carl von Linnés spe på flera ställen i Nemesis divina

        Hortus Cliffortianus

      Amsterdam: , 1737. Plantus exhibens quas In Hortis tam Vivis quam Siccis, Hartecampi in Hollandia, coluit vir nobilissimus & generosissimus Georgius Clifford juris utiusque doctor, Reductis Varietatibus ad Species, Speciebus ad Genera, Generibus ad Classes, Adjectis Locis Plantarum natalibus, Differentissque Specierum. Cum Tabulis Aeneis. Folio (approx 445 × 260 mm). Contemporary sprinkled paper boards, neatly rebacked with black cloth, edges uncut. Engraved frontispiece and 36 numbered engraved plates by Jan Wandelaar after designs by Georg Dionysius Ehret and Wandelaar; title printed in red and black. Board edges a little rubbed, some minor worm in the gutter towards end not affecting plates, one or two minor marks but an exceptional copy with uncut edges. First edition of the most sumptuously produced of Linnaeus's works, a detailed description of the Hartecamp gardens at Heemstede, a masterpiece of early botanical literature. It was produced at the expense of George Clifford (1685–1760), a wealthy Dutch banker and director of the Dutch East India Company, who asked Linnaeus to catalogue the plants in the gardens of his summer estate Hartecamp. Besides the plants, Linnaeus also describes Clifford's extensive botanical library, which contributed greatly to his research. The work is a helpful adjunct to Linnaeus's famous Species Plantarum (1753), in which he often refers to the more elaborate descriptions found in the Hortus Cliffortianus. The illustrations are among the earliest works of the renowned German botanical illustrator, Georg Dionysius Ehret (1708–1770), who finished his career in England.

      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. & & 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). "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."

        Cartes Marines

      Paris, 1737-1754: N.Bellin Folio, the title comprising an engraved cartouche containing manuscript index (possibly in Bellin's hand), 25 mostly double-page engraved charts (of 29, see below) by Bourgoin le Jeune, Dheulland and others, the maps hand-coloured in outline, the rhumb lines in either black or in bistre, contemporary french red morocco, gilt borders on sides, gilt arms of Jean Baptiste de Machault d'Arnouville (see below), gilt dentelles, spine richly gilt with olive green lettering-piece, gilt edges, lacking 4 maps (see below), title-page laid down. "This is probably one of the earliest collections of charts formed by Bellin after he had taken over the Marine Office and reprinted the Neptune François in 1753. The plates are by order of Monseigneur Le Comte de Maurepas, and his successor M. Rouillé, Chevalier Comte de Jouy, who in turn was succeeded by M. de Machault, around 1754, for whom this copy was bound" (Wardington Catalogue). Of the twenty-nine charts listed in the manuscript index it is doubtful whether six were ever present. These are numbers 5, 9, 14, 19, 22 and 23. Two maps have been added from other copies to replace maps 5 and 22 ("Carte reduite de l'Isle de la Jamaique" and "Carte reduite de l'ocean meridionale") Provenance: Jean Baptiste de Machault d'Arnouville (1701-1794), arms gilt on covers; Machault was nominated Controller of Finances in 1745, and introduced the "Tax de vingtieme", a levy of 5% on all income; it proved unpopular and he lost the support of Louis XV and Madame de Pompadour. In 1754 went on to become Minister of Marine, but in 1757 he was disgraced and retired to the country; Collection of Lord Wardington..
