         Pharmacopoea Hagana ex auctoritate magistratus poliatrorum opera instaurata et aucta.The Hague, Frederik Boucquet, 1738. 4to. With frontispiece engraved by David Coster and 2 folding engraved tables of pharmacological symbols with their meanings. Contemporary vellum.

      Daems & Vandewiele, p. 113; STCN (9 copies). Second edition, extensively revised and in the original Latin, of the official pharmacopoeia of the municipality of The Hague in the Netherlands. The index lists about 500 medicines. In some cases the text simply gives the name of the medicine with a reference to a published source, in others it gives a full recipe with the ingredients and instructions for their preparation. The 2-page engraved table, printed on two leaves that fold out so that one can consult them while reading the book, shows 90 symbols and gives their meanings, in alphabetical order. The magistrates and Collegium Medicorum of The Hague initiated the first edition, compiled by a committee of doctors from the Collegium, but even before it was published there were already complaints about its many and serious errors. They concluded that it was too late to correct them, but urged their colleagues to correct them in their own copies and they would be set right in a future edition, but in the event they had to wait 80 years for Boucquet's present second edition, with the three plates newly engraved for it.With owner's label. With an occasional minor brown spot and some faint offsetting, but otherwise in fine condition. The binding shows 1 small worm hole and is very slightly rubbed, but still very good. An important and attractive pharmacopoeia with an engraved frontispiece showing Asklepios and exotic plants.

         Introduzione alla Cosmografia . edizione seconda si aggiunge in fine un Succinto Trattato di Navigazione dell' istesso Autore.Pistoia, Atto Bracali, 1738. 2 parts in 1 volume. 4to. With 3 folding half-page plates and 1 folding letterpress table, 2 full-page plates, and 17 additional woodcut diagrams in the text. Contemporary boards, covered with gold-brocade paper.

      - Riccardi, col. M-109; not in Inst. Cent. Cat. Unico; De La Lande; Norman Library; Waller; KVK (2 copies plus 1 of Navigazione alone); WorldCat (2 copies); Poggendorf II, col. 44. Very rare second edition of Marchetti's Cosmografia (the last edition published during his lifetime), supplemented by the first edition of his treatise on navigation, both illustrated with woodcut diagrams. After several chapters on terminology, signs of the zodiac, etc., the author discusses the phases of the moon, solar and lunar eclipses, measurement, the Ptolemaic, Copernican, and Tychonic solar systems, and astronomical instruments (quadrants and terrestrial and celestial globes). Marchetti's Succinto Trattato di Navigazione , (Pistoia, Atto Bracali, 1738), though mentioned on the main title-page, has its own title-page, pagination and series of signatures, and was sometimes issued separately. It discusses navigational charts and their systems of parallels and meridians, compasses, measurement, etc. An early owner's inscription on the title-page has eaten through the paper, not affecting the printing but leaving some small holes and slightly staining the following page. Otherwise a very good copy in a local and contemporary gold-brocade binding, of a rare Italian cosmography.

         Clavis Artis. Des berühmten Juden und Rabbi Zoroasters, Wie solcher 1996. Von Anfange der Welt in Arabischer Sprache aufgesetzt, 1236. Nach Christi Geburth ins Teutsche übersetzt von J.V.S.F.R.O. und In einer Uhralten Bibliothec gefunden worden, Seiner Raritæt halber Nunmehro Autentisch und mit einem nöthigen Register, sammt deutlicher Erklärung aller inselbigen Signaturen und Wörter, allen Liebhabern der Hermetischen Philosophie zum besten in Druck befördert durch Einen Liebhaber Der Spagyrischen Raritæten. [Zweiter Druck im Jahr der Erstausg. mit korrigierter Jahreszahl "1738" statt "1378"].

      Jena, Verlegts Joh. Sebast. Rudolph. Buchbind., 1738. - 8 Bll., 147 S. (Titel in schwarz/rot), 6 Bll. (Index), Kl.-8°, Gemusterter Interimskarton d. Zt. Ferguson II, 570 (Anmerkung); Duveen 634; Ferchl 598; Neu 4438; Brüning 4327; Kopp II, 364. - Neben dieser gedruckten Fassung existiert auch ein Manuskript mit 40 farbigen Illustrationen in der ital. Biblioteca dell'Accademia Nazionale dei Lince, deren Bilder Bruno Nardini 1989 veröffentlichte: "Zoroaster. Ermetismo e alchemia nelle miniature di un manoscritto del sec. XVII". - An der rosenkreuzerischen Herkunft des Textes besteht kein Zweifel, so steht das "J.V.S.F.R.O." auf dem Titel für "J.V.S. Frater Rosae[crucis] Ordinis". In der Vorrede wird gemahnt, das Traktat vor den "Welt-Kindern" zu verbergen. Diese bisher befolgte Vorschrift erkläre, "warum unser Zoroaster bishierher nicht gemeine geworden; Imo: ich habe denselben auf meinen 50. jährigen Reisen nur ein einzigmal mehrenteils in Hebräischer Sprache gefunden, aber sehr unvollkommen gefunden und dennoch wurde es vor einen großen Schatz gehalten, daß, man auch viele 1.000 Thl. hätte davor geben wollen, man es dennoch davor nicht würde erhandeln können." (vgl. dazu Michael Stausberg: Faszination Zarathushtra: Zoroaster und die Europäische Religionsgeschichte. S.948ff). Der anonyme Autor ist wahrscheinlich der gleiche, der 1735 als "R. Abrahami Eleazaris" ein "Uraltes Chymisches Werk" veröffentlichte (dort im zweiten Teil mit separatem Titel: "Donum Dei Samuelis Baruch, des Juden Rabbi, Astrologi und Philosophi"). In der Slg. Duveen findet sich bei diesem Titel ein handschriftlicher Hinweis: "Deutlicher Schlüssel, derer ienigen fremden Wörter so in diesen Büchern ['Abraham Eleazar' u. 'Samuel Baruch'] befindlich, und doch zum Theil in den Registern nicht erkläret stehen welche aber in dem Buche Zoroastro dem Juden, und Rabbi enthalten sind." (Duveen S.2). Weitere Indizien für die Zusammengehörigkeit der drei Titel enthält auch die Vorrede des vorliegenden Textes: "Gegenwärtiges MStum ist hier das einige welches von Wahrheiten in Arte Spagyrica geschrieben, wie denn auch Abraham der Jude und Samuel Baruch ihr Lob verdienen", sowie die erneute Anmerkung dieses "ertz-wichtige Werck, absonderlich das 3te Buch" zu verbergen. - Deckel mit kl. Eckabriss; Seiten tlw. angeknickt; durchgehend gebräunt; sonst ein gutes Expl. aus der Bibliothek des Pariser Buchbinders Leon Gruel mit Exlibris. - Selten.

         An Historico-Geographical description of the north and eastern parts of Europe and Asia; but more particularly of Russia, Siberia, and Great Tartary.

      London: Brotherton 1738 - 4to. (22.7 x 17.5 cm). xii, 463 pp., with large folding map by R.W. Seale, folding woodcut map, folding table, 10 engraved plates (3 folding including 1 map), woodcut tables and illustrations in text (some full-page); inscription in ink to title, repaired small marginal tear to pp. 311-312. Contemporary calf, gilt ruled covers, spine with raised bands, gilt lettering to second compartment, gilt decorative ornaments to the others; neatly rebacked to style. An excellent copy of this celebrated study of Russia and Mongolia, complete with the large map; with fine English provenance. The author, the Swedish officer Philipp Johann Tabert von Strahlenberg (1676–1747), spent 10 years in captivity in Siberia between 1711 and 1722 following the defeat of Charles XII. During his stay in Russia he collected information and material on the languages and people of Ural and Altai stock, which became the basis for the present work. The text is of great importance, offering much first hand information - geographical, historical, and ethnographic - about Siberia and Great Tartary. The work also includes early descriptions of the linguistics of the region, with a Kalmyk vocabulary that includes translations of Mongolian words. The most important aspect of the present work, however, is von Strahlenberg's rare map depicting the Russian realm and Great Tartary, which contains extensive information about Siberia. Preparing the map, von Strahlenberg used his own latitudinal calculations as well as expedition accounts written by others. This copy is of the second English edition (after the first edition in German in 1730 and the first English of 1736), with the map specially re-engraved by Richard William Seale. It comes from the library of the Bickford family, who resided in the historic country house Dunsland, in the parish of Bradford, near Holsworthy, in Devon, England. The manor was home to four generations of the Bickford family from c. 1830. The house was sold in 1947 and destroyed by fire twenty years later. Cox I, 194; Crowther 2034.

         By Vertue and in Persuance of an Order of his Majesty's Most Honourable Privy Council ...

      1738 51 lines in two hands on two sides of a folded folio sheet, seven counter signatures in the left margin of the first page each with the same wax seal; old folds. v.g.'... We do hereby in his Majesty's name command & require you imediately [sic] upon receipt hereof to issue out your severall precepts yr. severall & respective petty constables within your Division thereby requiring them & every of them upon Thursday the twenty fourth of August ... in the night time to make a general & privy search through their severall & respective constabularys for the finding and apprehending of all rogues, vagabonds & sturdy beggars and all straggling seamen who are fit to serve on board his Majesty's ships and such as they shall ...' The constables were to be paid 'twenty shillings for each seaman fit for his Majesty's service & sixpence a mile for every mile they respectively travel not exceeding twenty miles'. The warrant continues with a particular instruction 'to be & appear at the house of Benjamin Scaife - situate? in Stockton - in the said County on Friday the twenty fifth instant at ten of the clock in the forenoon to make returne to such of his Majesty's Justices of the Peace'. The final six lines are in a different hand: 'To Mr John Jefferson Chief Constable for the South Division of Stockton ward ...' In 1738 the British Navy employed under 54,000 seamen, a figure that rose to 98,000 in 1791. Impressment, or the 'press gang' had been used in times of war from the mid 17th century onwards; by the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805 a staggering 120,000 seamen were pressed in the British Navy. Although at peace in 1738 war fever had gripped Britain following the presentation to Parliament by Robert Jenkins in March, of a pickled ear claimed to have been cut off by a Spanish captain in 1731. This led to the War of Jenkins Ear in 1739 and was perhaps the reason for this warrant. PLEASE NOTE: For customers within the UK and the EU, this item is subject to VAT.

Januar 1747 ebenda) war ein deutscher Schriftsteller und Dichter der frühen deutschen AUFKLÄRUNG. - Sein Hauptwerk ist die naturlyrische Gedichtsammlung IRDISCHES VERGNÜGEN IN GOTT, in der die Natur in ihrer Schönheit und Nützlichkeit als Mittler zwischen Mensch und Gott reflektiert wird. - 1721 begann Brockes mit der Herausgabe des Irdischen Vergnügens in Gott, bestehend in Physicalisch- und Moralischen Gedichten, das bis 1748 in neun Bänden erschien und das Ende einer barocken Weltsicht, die das 17. Jahrhundert geprägt hatte, anzukündigen scheint. Die Huldigung der Natur und der Schöpfung stand zwar immer noch im Mittelpunkt der Dichtung, wurde bei Brockes aber nunmehr um die präzise und analytische Betrachtung derselben ergänzt. - Der Ton des Irdischen Vergnügens traf zwar durchaus auf breite Zustimmung und fand Nachahmer, wurde aber zum Beispiel von Johann Jakob BREITINGER und Johann Christoph GOTTSCHED bereits kritisiert und im Zuge der literarischen AUFKLÄRUNG dann zunehmend als dürftig und nichtssagend angesehen; zwei Jahrzehnte nach dem Tod des Autors wusste man dieser Dichtung nichts mehr abzugewinnen. --- Aus dem INHALT u.a.: .im Frühlinge / .

      - 4°, gebonden in halfleren band met rugtitel, [1] (2)+33+90. [2] (2)+4+178. [3] 16. [4] (8)+148 pag. C1290 [1] Waller 1738; [3] Knuttel 18458. [1,2,4] niet in Knuttel, [2,3,4] niet in Waller; vgl. v. Rijnbach, 'Een onbekende spectator en zijn samensteller, Egbert Buijs' in Het Boek, nw. reeks 30 (1949-1951); Buynsters, Spectatiorale geschriften (1991) pag. 36; Schutte, Repertorium buitenlandse vertegenwoordigers pag. 369; Geerars, Hubert Korneliszoon Poot pag. 243; v.d. Aa II pag. 512. Egbert Buys (Amsterdam 1723-, 216, 1769) was een weinig ingetogen man die volgens de hier aangeboden processtukken met zijn vrouw eerst te Zwolle woonde, daarna op het landhuis Hoekenburg bij Rijswijk in de Over Betuwe, daarna te Utrecht in de Lange Nieuwstraat, daarna op huize Groenendaal buiten Utrecht waar hij met zijn vrouw een steenbakkerij dreef en tenslotte -na zijn geruchtmakende echtscheiding- te Amsterdam. De beschuldigingen van zijn vrouw aan zijn adres waren ergerlijk gedrag, een 'schandeleus banquerot' en het maltraiteren van zijn vrouw. Er werd een scheiding van tafel en bed uitgesproken maar er kwam een derde persoon in het geding, de advocaat mr. Carel Philip van Cuylenborgh. Deze was oorspronkelijk bevriend met Buys maar liet zich in de echtscheidingszaak tegen hem gebruiken. Daarbij produceerde hij een zestal getuigen, bewoonsters van een Utrechts bordeel, die uiteindelijk werden veroordeeld tot aandekaakstelling en tuchthuisstraf. Dit gebeuren en Van Cuylenborgh's optreden tegen de hoofd-officier D. van Lokhorst, hadden tot gevolg dat Van Cuylenborgh zelf ook gerresteerd werd. In de 'Memorie van rechten .' [2] beschuldigde Van Cuylenborgh Van Lokhorst en beledigde het gerecht, o.a. met zijn opmerkingen over zijn confrontatie met zijn medegevangene Griet van Bronswyk. De echtscheidingszaken en het proces tegen Van Cuylenborgh veroorzaakten in Utrecht een groot schandaal. De hier aangeboden processtukken geven 'een denkbeeld van de zedeloosheid die in deze tijd voorkwam en kunnen stof leveren voor een zedenroman' aldus Van Rijnbach. Een geheel andere indruk geven de feiten die Schutte meedeelt in zijn Repertorium: In 1742 en 1743 woonde Buys op de Kloveniersburgwal te Amsterdam en had een jaarinkomen van F3000. In 1743 huwde hij Alida van der Streng (1724-1796). Van 1745 tot 1769 was hij hofraad en actueel commissaris van de koning van Polen, keurvorst van Saksen; van 1763 tot 1769 ook hofraad van de koning van Pruissen. In 1750 werd hij burger van Utrecht, in 1763 en 1768 woonde hij in , 216, , waar hij 13 februari 1769 overleed. Op 18-2-1769 werd hij te Amsterdam begraven. Poot schreef een aantal gedichten voor zijn vader Jan Buys Egbertszoon en Jacob Spex schreef een drietal verzen voor Egbert zelf als hofraad (cf. Geerars). Schutte en Geerars melden niets over de schandalen in het Utrecht van 1753-1754.$Los toegevoegd bij dit kwatrijn een pamflet van (6) pag., ook 4°, 'Borgemeesteren en schepenen der stad Utrecht by gelegentheid van de affdoeninge der zaake [.] van wijlen jhr. D. van Lochorst [.] jegens mr. Carel Philip van Cuylenborg, gevangen op den huyze van Hazenberg [.] 28 Mey 1756'. Utrecht J.J. van Poolsum 1756. Dit niet in Knuttel voorkomende pamflet betreft een verklaring van Van Cuylenborgh dat de gewraakte passages tegen Van Lokhorst in zijn 'Memorie .' uit 1753 'onwaaragtig' waren en hij maakt zijn excuses. Deze verklaring werd op zijn kosten gedrukt en door het stads bestuur verspreid.$Ook toegevoegd een gegraveerd portret van Buys uit 1765, door J. Houbraken naar een schilderij uit 1764 door P.F. de la Croix, met een 6-regelig vers van Jacob Kortebrant.

         A Complete Collection of Genteel and Ingenious Conversation, according to the most polite mode and method now used at court, and in the best companies of England. In three dialogues. By Simon Wagstaff.

      Printed for B. Motte, and C. Bathurst. 1738 - [4], lxxxvi, [2], 215, [1]pp ad., preliminary ad. leaf. 8vo. Endpapers & pastedowns browned & dusted. Contemporary calf, double gilt ruled borders; hinges cracked but firm, spine worn at head & tail, corners sl. worn. A good sound copy. ESTC T200363; Teerink-Scouten, 761. One of a number of variant issues published in 1738, this has the woodcut of a basket of flowers as the headpiece on page i, and the catchword ?as? It is the scarcest variant, recorded in just 3 copies, (Hon. Society of King?s Inn Dublin, Bodleian, and New York Historical Society). The work, arranged in a series of dialogues, is designed to teach by example, and offers the reader a method by which they might improve their own art of conversation. In his preface Swift notes that ?I always kept a large table-book in my pocket; and as soon as I left the company, I immediately entered the choicest expressions that passed during the visit; which, returning home, I transcribed in a fair hand? These were the phrases not to use, and record the banality and cliché ridden conversation of early 18th century England. The work was dramatized in 1749 as ?Tittle Tattle; or, Taste a-la-Mode. A new farce. Perform'd with universal applause by a select company of belles and beaux, at the Lady Brilliant's withdrawing-room . by Timothy Fribble, Esq.?. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         A FAITHFUL ACCOUNT OF THE RELIGION AND MANNERS OF THE MAHOMETANS. IN WHICH IS A PARTICULAR RELATION OF THEIR PILGRIMAGE TO MECCA, THE PLACE OF MAHOMET'S BIRTH; AND A DESCRIPTION OF MEDINA, AND OF HIS TOMB THERE.

      T. Longman, London 1738 - (165 x 95mm), xxiv, 259 pp + 3 pp. adverts at end, 2 folding engraved plates, contemporary calf, binding slightly rubbed, rebacked, gilt on spine and binding, Preface, Table of Contents, spine richly decorated with gilt. Pitts was forced into captivity as a slave at Algiers in 1679 when the merchant man in which he was sailing was captured by an Algerian pirate ship. In 1680, after torture led him to make a declaration of his conversion to Islam, he accompanied his master on the pilgrimage to Mecca via Cairo - of which he gives a very graphic account - Suez and Jeddah. After fifteen years captivity he succeeded in escaping but on his first night back in England was impressed for the navy, from which with difficulty he obtained his release. HIS WORK IS THE FIRST AUTHENTIC RECORD BY AN ENGLISHMAN OF THE PILGRIMAGE TO MECCA and gives a brief but sensible and consistent account of what he saw. The first edition appeared in 1704, Third edition appeared in 1738. In the preface to this edition the author complained that the second edition was published without his permission and that it contained many inaccuracies. Pitts had the advantage of being able to refer to the works of some Arab and European historians. The first geography of Arabia was published at the Medici Press in 1592, containing material written by al-Idrissi. Jean de Thevenot had also brought some of the major Arabic authorities to notice in his "Journeaux", the Arabic parts of it came out between 1674 and 1684. Pitts corrected Thevenot's description of Mecca saying " M. Thevenot is very exact in almost everything of Turkish matters, and I pay much difference to that great author D’Herbelot Bibliothéque Orientale which was published in 1697. About the author, when Pitts left England at the end of the 17th Century, he was sold as a slave to an Algerian wealthy man. He was converted to Islam and gained access to the mosques of Algiers, and since he studied the religious ceremonies of Islam, his command of Arabic and Turkish was excellent. Pitts accompanied his master to pilgrimage to Mecca, travelling through Egypt and the Red Sea. He recorded every single event of his pilgrimage. Pitts remained four months in Mecca.

Early inked initials letters and shelfmark to front pastedown, nineteenth-century ink inscription to rear pastedown. Slightly rubbed, with a small chip to head of spine and some light scuffing to boards. One or two paper-flaws to page numbers, small hole to I2, barely touching a single character of text. Occasional mark, light damp-staining to rear endpapers, else a very crisp and clean copy. The earliest translation to English of the Jewish Prayer-book. This comprehensive, and occasionally rather critical, study of Jewish life and practices is dominated by the first English translation of any part of the Siddur, the definitive Jewish prayer-book. Translated by Abraham Mears (under the pseudonym of Gamaleil Ben Pedahzur, according to Roth), an apostate member of the English Ashkenazi community, it was intended as an exposition of Judaism rather than a service book, but in providing phonetic translations of the Hebrew title of each prayer Mears explicitly promotes its use 'to Beginners in the Hebrew Tongue' and 'all Persons that resort to the Synagogues'. The transliterated Hebrew title for each prayer is found in the margins, enabling the curious non-Hebrew reading Christian to attend and follow a synagogue service. The transliteration of the Hebrew characters provides a clue as to how Hebrew was pronounced in the eighteenth-century Ashkenazi community of London . The book was not intended for liturgical use, but rather for scholarly readership, so it is not in effect a prayer-book. It reflects the growing interest in Judaism on the part of non-Jewish Englishmen of the of the eighteenth century. ESTC T86072; Roth B8:6. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Lo storico latino Tito Livio (Padova 59 a.C. - 17 d.C.) in questa sua celebre opera fa la storia di Roma dalla fondazione della città alla morte di Druso (9 a.C.). Di questa vasta trattazione in forma annalistica sono giunti a noi i libri I-X (dal 754 -53 al 293 a.C.) e XXI-XLV (dal 218 al 167 a.C.) oltre a numerosi frammenti, cioè ca. un quarto dell'opera che, come ci informano i sommari, era costituita di 142 libri”. Così Diz. Treccani,VII, p. 75. Cfr. Brunet,III,1108: “cette édition, pour laquelle l'éditeur a consulté cinquante manuscrits et cent treize textes imprimés, est, au jugement des savants, un chef-d'oeuvre d'exactitude et d'érudition; nous pouvons ajouter que le mérite de l'exécution typographique égale celui du texte”. Esemplare ben conservato: purtroppo con bruniture per la qualità della carta.

         A Complete Collection of Genteel and Ingenious Conversation ... By Simon Wagstaff

      London: [S. Richardson for] B. Motte, and C. Bathurst, 1738. First? edition, with Neptune headpiece on page 1. Engraved headpieces. [i], [i, ads], [ii], lxxxvi, [2], 215, [1, ads] pp. 8vo. Modern calf-backed marbled boards. Browning to ad leaf (A1) and title, sporadic staining. First? edition, with Neptune headpiece on page 1. Engraved headpieces. [i], [i, ads], [ii], lxxxvi, [2], 215, [1, ads] pp. 8vo. In a letter to Pope on 12 June 1732 concerning this work, Swift wrote that his "thing in prose, begun above twenty-eight years ago" was "almost finish'd," noting that it would be published anonymously and would be "such a perfection of folly, that you shall never hear of it till it is printed, and then you shall be left to guess." Publication was arranged by Mary Barber and for her benefit. There were two 1738 London editions, with either a Neptune headpiece, as here, or a flower basket headpiece on page 1. The Rothschild catalogue identifies the Neptune headpiece as Richardson's. ESTC T97412; Teerink 761; Rothschild 2158

         Élémens de la philosophie de Neuton mis à la portée de tout le monde, par M. de Voltaire

      Ledet, Amsterdam 1738 - Mit gest. Front., 2 Portr., gest. Titelvign., 49 gest. Textvign., 6 Kupfertaf., 58 Textkupfern u. 1 gest. Falttab. 1 Bl., 399 S.; 1 S. Errata; Ldr. d. Zt. mit Rückenschild (Vdeckel gelockert, Kant. berieben u. best.). Winzige Randbemerkung von alter Hand auf den Seiten 143 und 263. Erste Ausgabe in Amsterdam , da Voltaire in Frankreich keine Druckerlaubnis erwirken konnte. Das Werk hatte Voltaire mit seiner zeitweiligen Lebenspartnerin Madame du Chatelet gemeinsam in Cirey seit 1736 erarbeitet. Unter enormen finanziellen Aufwendungen wurden Apparate und Vorrichtungen für die notwendigen Experimente beschafft. Émilie du Chatelet war die bessere Mathematikerin von Beiden die den Teil der Beweisführung (Trigonometrie, Differntialrechnungen usw.) übernahm.Voltaire derjenige der die Ausführungen schriftstellerisch so formulieren konnte damit ein breites Lesepublikum die Prinzipien Newtons vermittelt bekommen konnte. Als Koautorin in einem naturwissenschaftlichen Werk genannt zu werden galt damals als unüblich. Als Dank für die gemeinsame Arbeit kann das Vorwort von Voltaire und das Frontispiz das von Dubourg nach Voltaires Vorstellungen gearbeitet wurde verstanden werden. Hier wird das Licht das Newton versendet von Minerva im Spiegel erfasst und auf den Schreibtisch des Dichters gelenkt. Die damalige Sprengkraft der Veröffentlichung war unglaublich und kann aus heutiger Sicht nur noch schwer nachvollzogen werden. Voltaire war mit dieser Ausgabe nicht zufrieden (unautorisiert, teilw. unvollständig) und gab im gleiche Jahr eine weitere Ausgabe (Nouvelle edition, London) heraus. Auch aus Sicht der Buchgestaltung (u.a 107 Textkupfer auf 399 S.) eine außergewöhnlich schöne Arbeit. Bengesco 1570, Sander 1996. Exlibris Erich Friedländer (* 13. Mai 1901 in Frankfurt am Main; + 4. November 1997 in Bern) war ein deutsch-amerikanischer Chemiker (emigrierte 1940 in die USA). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         A Description of the Empire of China and Chinese Tartary, together with the Kingdoms of Korea and Tibet:

      1738-41. 1738 - Containing the Geography and History (Natural as well as Civil) of those Countries. With Notes Geographical, Historical, and Critical; and Other Improvements, particularly in the Maps, by the Translator. Second and best English edition. 2 vols. Engraved frontispiece, 13 engraved plates, and 51 engraved maps and plans (mostly folding), several woodcut illustrations in the text. Folio. Contemporary paneled calf, rebacked, some occasional light foxing and marginal browning, but generally a very good copy. [iv], xii, xii, [ii], 678; [iv], 388, [10]pp. London, E. Cave, The best English edition of this work which was translated by John Green. Du Halde (1674-1743) collected a massive quantity of material relating to China, Central Asia and Korea from the many Jesuit reports sent back to France. His work is particularly rich for the excellent maps by d'Anville (1697-1782) which show the Chinese Empire and neighbouring countries in unprecedented detail. The book became the standard source on China and Tibet and was virtually to remain so for a hundred and fifty years, but it also included the first publication of the report on Bering's first expedition into the North Pacific illustrated by an excellent map.The success of the original edition (Paris, 1735) lead to the publication of two English translations. The first into print was that of R. Brookes published by John Watts. It was issued in four octavo volumes, was much abridged textually and illustrated with only 19 plates and maps. The above version was published by Edward Cave who had employed John Green to translate the 4 vol. French work in its entirety. The use of a smaller type and a different layout enabled Cave to fit the text into two volumes. However the finished book which cost more than twice as much as its competitor, is a physically a most appealing publication. Lust 15; Cordier 50; cf. Lada Mokarski, 2; cf. Imago Mundi VI, pp 85- 91; Not in Yakushi.
