        A Chart of the entrance into Kanton from the Sea. Humbly Inscribed to the Rt. Honourable Lord Vere Beauclerk.

      No date. [ 1738]. Copper plate engraving, 9 3/8 x 14 1/2 inches on sheet 16 x 10 inches. Narrow left margin with little paper loss just entering the neat line at upper left. Soft undulations to the paper. Map is clean and bright. An attractive early map of the Pearl river delta from Kanton to the sea including Ma-kau (Macau), Lan-tou (Hong Kong's Lantau Island), and islands to the southwest. At left is an inset map "Plan of Quang-Chew Fu commonly called Kanton" showing the divisions of the city: Tartar City, Chinese City and Suburb, with the location of forts. This is a plate from Du Halde's "A description of the empire of China and Chinese-Tartary: together with the kingdoms of Korea, and Tibet: containing the geography and history (natural as well as civil) of those countries" published in London in 1738. Originally published in French in 1735, this was an encyclopedic compendium by Jesuit priest Jean Baptiste Du Halde of the written accounts of some 27 Jesuits in China, documenting the history and customs of the country.

        The Description and Use of the Globes, and the Orrery. To which is prefixed, by way of introduction, a brief Account of the Solar System.

      London: Printed for Thomas Wright, Mathematical Instrument-Maker... And E. Cushee, Globe-Maker, 1738. Octavo, with six engraved folding plates; early ink ownership inscription ("John Wadham, his booke July 12th 1762"), armorial bookplate of Belsfield, and a later owner's embossed stamp; a good, crisp copy in contemporary dark calf, front cover later paper label. A popular handbook on globes which ran to at least ten editions from 1731 (this is the fourth). Harris begins with an introduction to the latest models of globes, celestial and terrestrial. He then demonstrates how to use the globes to solve forty-six problems, including finding latitudes and longitudes for any given place, finding the position of the sun at any given date, discovering on which date the sun will be directly overhead in any given spot in the torrid zone, computing the length of any given day of the year, finding the altitude of a star, and so on (Taylor, The Mathematical Practitioners).Joseph Harris (1702-64) began as a blacksmith in Cornwall with an interest in mathematics. He designed and made mathematical and navigational instruments, and his interest in navigation led him to voyage to Mexico and Jamaica. He also taught mathematics, and in 1748 became Master of the Mint in the Tower of London. These interests are reflected in his publications on coinage and navigation.The two publishers of the book were also practical savants: Thomas Wright was a maker of scientific instruments, who specialised in the orrery, while Richard Cushee (who died in about 1732: the publisher here is probably his son) was a maker of globes and was the engraver of the plates in this book. With two layers of leather showing with some wear near the spine, but the book not rebacked.

        The History of the Conquest of Mexico by the Spaniards

      London: Printed for T Woodward, 1738. 2 volumes. x+479 pages with foldout frontispiece portrait of Hernan Cortez, four foldout plates and two fold out maps. xii+475+[1 ad] pages with two foldout plates. Octavo (8 1/2" x 5 1/2") bound in original full leather with with gilt fillet borders on covers, the spine in six compartments separated by six raised bands, black morocco gilt lettering piece in one and the rest gilt-ruled (Field 1465, Sabin 86490, Palau: VI 530) First octavo edition.Originally published in Spanish in 1684, the first English edition was published in 1724.In 1661 Antonio de Solis was appointed to succeed Antonio de León Pinelo as chronicler of the Indies. He was a native of Alcalá and had studied classics, philosophy, and laws there and in Salamanca. He served as secretary to the Conde de Oropesa and, after 1654, as Oficial of the first Secretariat of State. His writings prior to his appointment as chronicler were of a literary nature, principally dramatic and poetic. His work as chronicler showed the influence of his literary background. He at first intended to write a continuation of Herrera’s Historia. In preparing himself for this he found a prejudice in the works of foreigners and his own nation that he decided to rewrite the story of the conquest of Mexico, which he found most in need of revision. His work, therefore, was affected by two elements which damaged its historical value: his desire to write a well-balanced literary work and his determination to defend the Spanish national honor. The result of his labors was his Historia de la conquista de México, población y progreso de la Amérique Septentrional conocida con el nombre Nueva España, which appeared in 1684. The actual content of the work does not come up to the indications of the title. Solís was able to complete only the first part, which told the history of the conquest of Mexico, 1519-1521. He was working on the continuation of the work when he died in Madrid in 1686. Solis’ Historia has been called a poem without verse, as it is written in epic style, with a great central hero and with the facts selected according to the needs of the story. It became the first standard literary version of the Conquest until Prescott’s history and other later works. It went through numerous Spanish editions and was translated in the major European tongues.... A lengthy study of Solís and his history, by Luis A. Arocena, saw publication in Buenos Aires in 1963. (Handbook of Middle American Indians, Volume 13 )Condition:Book plate to front paste down, previous owner's name on front end papers, skillfully rebacked, corners bumped with some chipping to some else a very nice set.

Première édition française. de "An account of the mechanism of the globe of the eye" (1730). L'oculiste du Roi George II, John Taylor, un habile chirurgien, apporta une contribution notable à l'ophtalmologie. Il parcourut toute l'Europe, et sa dextérité supposée lui valut un grand renom, qu'il sut adroitement entretenir à grand renfort de publicité. Il finit sa vie à Paris. Toutefois il est resté dans l'histoire pour ses opérations manquées sur les musiciens Bach et Haendel. In fine se trouve une bibliographie des auteurs qui ont écrit sur les maladies de l'oeil.

        Le mécanisme du fluteur automate, présenté à Messieurs de l'Académie royale des Sciences. Avec la description d'un canard artificiel, mangeant, beuvant, digérant & se vuidant, épluchant ses ailes et ses plumes, imitant en diverses manières un canard vivant. Inventé par la même. Et aussi celle d'une autre figure, également merveilleuse, jouant du tambourin & de la flûte, suivant la relation, qu'il en a donnée depuis son mémoire écrit.

      Paris (Hollande), Jacques Guérin, 1738. ____ Seconde édition, augmentée et la première illlustrée. Le frontispice gravé sur cuivre montre les trois automates exposés à Paris par Vaucanson : le joueur de flute, le célèbre canard artificiel et un joueur de tambourin et de flute mesurant 1mètre 50. On sait que les automates de ce génial inventeur sont aujourd'hui perdus, à l'exception de simples morceaux du canard. "Le hardi Vaucanson, rival de Prométhée, semblait, de la nature imitant les ressorts, prendre le feu des cieux pour animer les corps." (Voltaire) "L'Académie ayant entendu la lecture d'un Mémoire de Monsieur Vaucanson contenant la description d'une statue de bois, copiée sur le faune en marbre de Coysevox, qui joue de la flûte traversière, sur laquelle elle exécute douze airs différents avec une précision qui a mérité l'attention du public, et dont une grande partie de l'Académie a été le témoin, elle a jugé que cette machine était extrêmement ingénieuse, que l'auteur avait dû employer des moyens simples et nouveaux, tant pour donner aux doigts de cette figure les mouvements nécessaires que pour modifier le vent qui entre dans la flûte, en augmentant ou diminuant la vitesse suivant les différents tons, en variant la disposition des lèvres et faisant mouvoir une soupape qui fait les fonctions de la langue; enfin, en imitant par art tout ce que l'homme est obligé de faire, et qu'en outre cela, le Mémoire de Monsieur de Vaucanson avait toute la clarté et la précision dont cette machine est susceptible, ce qui prouve l'intelligence de l'auteur et ses grandes connaissances dans les différentes parties de la mécanique." (Rapport de l'Académie des Sciences). Cette seconde édition est augmentée dune "Lettre de M. Vaucanson à M. l'abbé D. F." dans laquelle il décrit longuement son canard automate, sa création la plus étonnante. D'après la typographie, cette édition semble avoir été imprimée en Hollande. ***** Second edition, enlarged and the first illustrated. Vaucanson's creations were recognized as being revolutionary in their mechanical lifelike sophistication. Illustrated by a engraved frontispice showing three automates, his most famous automata. Vaucanson's most famous creation was undoubtedly "The Duck." This mechanical beast could flap its wings, eat, and digest grain. Each wing contained over four hundred moving parts and even today it remains something of a mystery. The original duck has disappeared. "A rival to Prometheus, [Vaucanson] seemed to steal the heavenly fires in his search to give life." (Voltaire). This second edition is enlarged with at the end a letter of Vaucanson to "l'abbé D. F.", in which he describes at lenght his famous duck. This edition, according to its typography, appears to have been printed in Low-Countries. In-4. [230 x 185 mm] Collation : frontispice, 22, (2) pp. Broché.

        Hydrodynamica, sive De Viribus et Motibus Fluidorum Commentarii. Opus Academicum.

      Strasbourg: Johann Reinhold Dulsseker, 1738. First edition of Bernoulli's epochal work on fluid dynamics and the kinetic theory of gases, containing the famous 'Bernoulli equation' for fluid flow. "Besides introducing the first hydraulic theory of fluid flow, this book is the most remarkable general work in theoretical and applied mechanics written in the pre-Lagrangian period of the 18th century, based on a deep physical understanding of mechanical phenomena and presenting many new ideas ... Bernoulli's treatise was to influence the entire development of mechanics and, especially, of applied mechanics, for at least a century" (Landmark Writings, pp. 131-2). "In 1738 Bernoulli published Hydrodynamica. In this treatise, which was far in advance of his time in many ways, is his famous equation governing the flow of fluids in terms of speed, pressure, and potential energy, upon which much modern technology is based, especially aerodynamics" (DSB). "In this book Bernoulli presented the earliest adequate theory of motion of an incompressible fluid in tubes (vessels) and fluid outflow through orifices, introducing the notion of hydrodynamic pressure. However, the treatise is not restricted to theoretical hydraulics. In the subsequent sections, he opens up new branches of physics and mechanics. He develops the first model of the kinetic theory of gases, approaches the principle of conservation of energy, establishes a foundation for the analysis of efficiency of machines, and develops a theory of hydroreactive (water-jet) ship propulsion, including a solution of the first problem of motion of a variable-mass system. "Hydrodynamica contains many profound remarks on the physical background of a wide range of mechanical effects, and its study remains most edifying also to the modern reader ... However, many of his advanced ideas were far ahead of his time and met an adequate understanding only later. In the 19th century, J.-V. Poncelet called Bernoulli's treatise 'the immortal Hydrodynamica' in 1845, and Paul Du Bois-Reymond referred to 'the enormous wealth of ideas which assures this work one of the first places in the literature of Mathematical Physics of all ages' in 1859. "Hydrodynamica is founded mainly on the principle of conservation of 'living forces' (that is, kinetic energy). Bernoulli preferred to use this principle not in its traditional form, received with hostility by Newtonians, but in Christiaan Huygens's formulation that Bernoulli named the principle of equality between the actual descent and potential ascent: 'If any number of weights begin to move in any way by the force of their own gravity, the velocities of the individual weights will be everywhere such that the products of the squares of these velocities multiplied by the appropriate masses, gathered together, are proportional to the vertical height through which the centre of gravity of the composite of the bodies descends, multiplied by the masses of all of them'. "As to hydraulics proper, Bernoulli's considers only quasi-one-dimensional fluid motion, reducing any flow to this case by means of the hypothesis of plane sections: he does not distinguish between tubes and vessels. The principle of conservation of living forces was used for studying fluid flow by Bernoulli and also by Leonhard Euler. Coincidence of their results presented independently in the Petersburg Academy of Sciences in 1727 forced Euler to change his scientific plans and to leave this field for his elder colleague. When Bernoulli developed his work, besides studying many special cases of flow, he achieved two new fundamental results. He succeeded in explaining the nature and determining the value of the hydrodynamic pressure of moving fluids on the wall of tubes and he discovered the principal role of losses of living forces in the fluid flow, especially at sudden changes of the flow cross-sections. The former gave an instrument to engineers for calculation of tube strength and the latter served, in addition, a step to the general principle of conservation of energy. Bernoulli concluded also the sharp discussion of many years on the impact and reaction of emitting jets, giving the final solution of the problem" (Landmark Writings, pp. 132-3). Bernoulli composed the first version of this work at St. Petersburg in the early 1730s; its forthcoming publication was announced in the September 1734 issue of the journal Mercure Suisse. The following December Bernoulli, now in Basel, wrote to Euler: 'My Hydrodynamica is now really being printed by Mr. Dulsecker, and he gives me, besides 30 copies, even 100 thalers of royalty'. However, the actual printing of the book seems to have begun only in 1737, and it finally appeared at the end of April or the beginning of May 1738. In May, Bernoulli sent the first copies of his treatise to St. Petersburg and asked Euler for his comments, but the parcel was lost on the way and it was not until spring 1739 that Euler saw a copy of the book and warmly congratulated its author: "I have read through your incomparable Treatise with full attention and have drawn immense gain from it. I congratulate you, Sir, from all my heart on the felicitous execution of such a difficult and obscure topic, as well as on the immortal fame thus gained. The entire execution of the project deserves all conceivable attention, and all the more so as it is not accessible to rigorous mathematics, but demands the help of several important physical principles, which you have known to employ to indescribable advantage." In contrast to Euler's appreciation, Hydrodynamica became the focus of a bitter dispute between Daniel and his father Johann I. Although the details are disputed, it seems that Johann saw a copy of Daniel's book and used it to compose his own work on the subject, Hydraulica, keeping this secret from his son. Johann published Hydraulica at the beginning of 1743 in his Opera Omnia, adding the subtitle now for the first time disclosed and directly shown from purely mathematical foundations, 1732. Daniel was incensed by Johann's pretence that his Hydraulica had been composed some six years before his own work had been published, and the resulting rift between father and son was never completely healed. "Daniel Bernoulli (1700-1782) was the second son of Johann Bernoulli, who first taught him mathematics. After studying philosophy, logic, and medicine at the universities of Heidelberg, Strasbourg, and Basel, he received an M.D. degree (1721). In 1723-24 he wrote Exercitationes quaedam Mathematicae on differential equations and the physics of flowing water, which won him a position at the influential Academy of Sciences in St. Petersburg, Russia. Bernoulli lectured there until 1732 in medicine, mechanics, and physics, and he researched the properties of vibrating and rotating bodies and contributed to probability theory. In that same year he returned to the University of Basel to accept the post in anatomy and botany. By then he was widely esteemed by scholars and also admired by the public throughout Europe. "Between 1725 and 1749 Daniel won 10 prizes from the Paris Academy of Sciences for work on astronomy, gravity, tides, magnetism, ocean currents, and the behaviour of ships at sea. He also made substantial contributions in probability. He shared the 1735 prize for work on planetary orbits with his father, who, it is said, threw him out of the house for thus obtaining a prize he felt should be his alone. Daniel's prizewinning papers reflected his success on the research frontiers of science and his ability to set forth clearly before an interested public the scientific problems of the day. In 1732 he accepted a post in botany and anatomy at Basel; in 1743, one in physiology; and in 1750, one in physics" (Britannica) Barchas 175; Norman 215; Parkinson pp. 155-6; Roberts and Trent pp. 34-5.

Contemporary gold-tooled mottled calf.

      - Bibl. horlogère de Monsieur R.P. 196; Chadenat 2617; Gould, p. 96 note; Tardy, p. 99. First edition of an account by Charles Pierre Claret, Count Fleurieu (1738-1810), of the first voyage made to test the chronometers invented by his mentor, Ferdinand Berthoud (1727-1807). They were developed to keep accurate time at sea in order to solve the problem of the determination of longitude, to make it possible for ships to easily determine their position. Berthoud closely followed the work of Harrison in England, who had already proven the efficacy of his chronometer no. 4 in 1761, but refused to allow Berthoud and others to examine it. During the voyages described in the present work, Fleurieu tested Berthoud's chronometers as well as his own instruments on board the ship Isis, travelling to Cadiz, the Canaries, the Antilles, Santo Domingo, the Atlantic Ocean, Madera, and several other places. The results showed their success even beyond his own expectations. The present work is complete with the appendix.With an owner's inscription on both title-pages. With only some minor, mostly marginal water stains at the beginning of volume 2. Folios e2 and e3 misbound at the end between 4I1 and 4I2. In very good condition.

Edition originale rare de la traduction, par Charles Chais, de ‘Enquiry into the Meaning of Demoniacks (.)’ (Londres 1737) de A. A. Sykes (1683-1756) et de "An Answer to the Enquiry (.)" de L. Twells. "Très intéressante controverse sur les Démons et les Démoniaques, ou Possédés" (selon Guaita 2037). Dans son enquête documentée sur les sources historiques, religieuses et "cliniques" des phénomènes de possession, A. A. Sykes, recteur de l’université de Rayleigh, rejette la réalité de l’existence des démons. Il cherche à prouver que les dits possédés ne sont que des malades mentaux "fous et épileptiques", contre ses adversaires, dont L. Twells, qui défend la thèse de possession littérale par le diable ou des esprits malfaisants. La thèse rationaliste de Sykes, qui trouva l’appui des déistes Francis Hutcheson and Thomas Woolston, souleva une intense polémique à travers toute l’Europe sur la démonologie et les phénomènes de possession. Le traducteur Charles Chais était un protestant libéral. Ami de Barbeyrac, de La Chapelle et de Formey, il s'efforça de concilier la pensée scientifique et l'orthodoxie protestante.

      chez Etienne Ledet & Compagnie, A Amsterdam 1738 - In-8 de (2)-399-(1) pp., veau brun, dos orné à nerfs, pièce de titre en maroquin rouge (reliure de l'époque) Edition originale. Un frontispice gravé où figure Mme Du Châtelet tenant en main un miroir qui éclaire le visage de Newton ; un portrait de Voltaire gravé par J. Folkema, dessiné par J. Dubourg, 25 culs-de-lampe par Dubourg, Folkema, Konder, Decave, B. Picart et Schley, fleuron de titre gravé par Duflos. 7 figures gravées sur cuivre dont une planche repliée. Voltaire commença la composition de son principal ouvrage scientifique pendant l'été de 1736, inspiré par les études mathémathiques et scientifiques de la marquise Du Châtelet et l'exemple de Francesco Algarotti. Il propose de convertir les Français au newtonianisme ; rejetant le dialogue, employé par Fontenelle, Algarotti et d'autres, et afin de mettre la science à la portée du public, il adopte un ton sérieux, des illustrations géométriques et des calculs. L'ouvrage parut avant que Voltaire eût envoyé la fin du 23e chapitre et le 24e ; malgré sa réticence, l'éditeur hollandais fit achever cette édition par un mathématicien anonyme et ajouta au titre mis à la portée de tout le monde. Voltaire fit publier une nouvelle édition à Paris chez Prault, à laquelle il ajouta quelques cartons changeant très peu le texte de l'édition originale. Bon exemplaire ; une coiffe restaurée ; 2 feuillets déplacés. Bengesco I, 1570 ; L'Oeuvre imprimé de Voltaire à la B.N., 3744 ; Cohen-De Ricci, 1037. [Attributes: First Edition]

Seconde édition de l'Histoire des rats, peut-être une réimpression de la première parue l'année précédente en 1737 et identique à celle-ci. Un frontispice, une vignette de titre, et une figure, l'ensemble de Otten. Page de titre en rouge et noir. Nouvelle édition sous un autre titre des Chats de Moncrif, paru primitivement en 1727, et illustrée de 9 figures d'après Charles Antoine Coypel par le Comte de Caylus, dont 2 dépliantes, et un tableau généalogique dépliant des chats d'Asie. Reliure en plein veau marbré brun circa 1815. Dos à nerfs orné de 5 fers, filets gras et roulettes. Pièce de titre de veau rouge. Frise d'encadrement sur les plats, et frise intérieure. 3 coins émoussés. Traces de frottements. Manque le coin droit inférieur du premier feuillet après le titre du second ouvrage. Les planches des Chats sont plus courtes en marge d'un bon cm. Bel exemplaire, bien relié. L'Histoire des rats qui inaugure ce recueil fut écrite en réaction et inspirée par le livre fameux de Moncrif : les Chats (allégeance revendiquée par l'auteur en préface), dans lequel celui-ci traitait d'une matière profane en scientifique et érudit ; il en résulta un livre drôle et caustique, et profondément intéressant. On reconnaît en outre dans l'oeuvre de Moncrif le premier livre dans l'histoire consacré exclusivement aux chats. Ecrit sous forme de lettres adressées à une dame de la cour, l'ouvrage est à la fois érudit sur le statut des chats au cours de l'histoire, et toujours divertissant, le texte étant émaillé de pièces plaisantes et drôles tels qu'une pièce de théâtre pour chats (avec un choeur de chats), des fables, des lettres d'amours de chats... L'illustration est souvent délicieuse et a contribué au succès du livre, on y voit danser des chats sur un toit, un chat roi, un chat Dieu... Bien que paru anonymement, il fut rapidement connu que Moncrif en était l'auteur, et lors de sa réception à l'Académie française, un plaisant lâcha un chat au milieu de l'assemblée.  L'histoire des rats est beaucoup plus traditionnellement satirique que ne l'est celle des Chats de Moncrif, et même les connaissances d'histoire naturelle, distribuées ça et là dans l'ouvrage semblent relever de la satire, c'est à dire qu'on reconnaît derrière les rats davantage l'homme que le rat lui-même. L'oeuvre est nettement moins plaisante et charmante que les Chats de Montcrif, mais bien plus piquante. NB : Cet ouvrage est disponible à la librairie sur demande sous 48 heures.

        Histoire des rats, pour servir a l'histoire universelle. [Ensemble] Dissertation sur la prééminence des chats dans la société, sur les autres animaux d'Egipte

      S.n. |& chez Jean Daniel Beman 1738 - - S.n. & chez Jean Daniel Beman, A Ratopolis& aRotterdam 1738 - 1741, in-8 (13x21cm), (4) xvj, 140pp. (12) (4bc.) VIII, 204pp. (13), relié. - Rare réunion de deux ouvrages complémentaires. Seconde édition de l'Histoire des rats, peut-être une réimpression de la première parue l'année précédente en 1737 et identique à celle-ci. Un frontispice, une vignette de titre, et une figure, l'ensemble de Otten. Page de titre en rouge et noir. Nouvelle édition sous un autre titre des Chats de Moncrif, paru primitivement en 1727, et illustrée de 9 figures d'après Charles Antoine Coypel par le Comte de Caylus, dont 2 dépliantes, et un tableau généalogique dépliant des chats d'Asie. Reliure en plein veau marbré brun circa 1815. Dos à nerfs orné de 5 fers, filets gras et roulettes. Pièce de titre de veau rouge. Frise d'encadrement sur les plats, et frise intérieure. 3 coins émoussés. Traces de frottements. Manque le coin droit inférieur du premier feuillet après le titre du second ouvrage. Les planches des Chats sont plus courtes en marge d'un bon cm. Bel exemplaire, bien relié. L'Histoire des rats qui inaugure ce recueil fut écrite en réaction et inspirée par le livre fameux de Moncrif : les Chats (allégeance revendiquée par l'auteur en préface), dans lequel celui-ci traitait d'une matière profane en scientifique et érudit ; il en résulta un livre drôle et caustique, et profondément intéressant. On reconnaît en outre dans l'oeuvre de Moncrif le premier livre dans l'histoire consacré exclusivement aux chats. Ecrit sous forme de lettres adressées à une dame de la cour, l'ouvrage est à la fois érudit sur le statut des chats au cours de l'histoire, et toujours divertissant, le texte étant émaillé de pièces plaisantes et drôles tels qu'une pièce de théâtre pour chats (avec un choeur de chats), des fables, des lettres d'amours de chats. L'illustration est souvent délicieuse et a contribué au succès du livre, on y voit danser des chats sur un toit, un chat roi, un chat Dieu. Bien que paru anonymement, il fut rapidement connu que Moncrif en était l'auteur, et lors de sa réception à l'Académie française, un plaisant lâcha un chat au milieu de l'assemblée. L'histoire des rats est beaucoup plus traditionnellement satirique que ne l'est celle des Chats de Moncrif, et même les connaissances d'histoire naturelle, distribuées ça et là dans l'ouvrage semblent relever de la satire, c'est à dire qu'on reconnaît derrière les rats davantage l'homme que le rat lui-même. L'oeuvre est nettement moins plaisante et charmante que les Chats de Montcrif, mais bien plus piquante. NB : Cet ouvrage est disponible à la librairie sur demande sous 48 heures. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Second edition of the history of rats, possibly a reprint of the first published the previous year in 1737 and identical to it.

        Specimen rei nummariae (= Thesaurus numismatum). Textband und 2 umfangreiche Tafelbände.

      Zürich, Caspar Fuess, 1738 ff.. Folio (38 x 24 cm). Textband: 354 Seiten (recte 254 S., pag. springt von S. 122 auf 223). Die Seiten 1-126 sind gedruckt, die Seiten 127 bis 254 sind als Text gestochen. - Die 2 Tafelbände enthalten 6 Teile mit je einem gestochenen Titelblatt und zusammen 337 Kupfertafeln. Halbpergamentbände der Zeit (Textband am Rücken mit leichter Stoßstelle). *Tafelbände: 1. Numismata Graeca Regum 7 Kupfertafeln - 2. Numismata Graeca Syriae Aegyptii et Arsacidarum 9+3+4 Kupfertafeln. - 3. Numismata Graeca Sicilia Ilidae Minorum Gentium 5+3+4 Kupfertafel. - 4. Numismata Antiqua Populorum et Urbium (2 Titelblätter) 85 Kupfertafeln. - 5. Numismata Antiqua Imperatorum Romanorum Latina et Graeca. 183 Kupfertafeln. - 6. Numismata Antiqua Familiarum Romanarum (2 Titelblätter) 34 Kupfertafeln. - Die Tafeln sind innerhalb der einzelnen Abteilungen fortlaufend numeriert und in sich komplett. - Außerordentlich seltenes Werk, ein Pionierwerk zur antiken Münzkunde des Schweizer Professors, Archäologen und Numismatikers J.J. Geßner (1707-1787). - Günther Thüry schrieb ca. 1984 eine Abhandlung in den Schweizer Münzblättern über Geßner und dieses Werk, er nennt Gessner einen Pionier der antiken Numismatik. \"Die Publikation dieses Gessnerschen Corpus, dieses \"Thesaurus numismatum\", der 1734 erstmals zur Subskription gestellt wurde, erfolgte in unregelmässig erscheinenden Teillieferungen und zog sich über rund vier Jahrzehnte hin\" … \"Das Gessnersche Corpus besteht aus zahlreichen, meist ohne Angabe des Erscheinungsjahres veröffentlichten Teillieferungen … In der bisherigen bibliographischen und numismatischen Literatur herrscht so über Erscheinungsdaten, Zahl, Umfang und Titel der einzelnen Werkteile manche Unklarheit\". - Thüry meint, dass das gesamte Werk insgesamt 254 Textseiten und 347 Kupferstichtafeln umfasst, auf denen mehr als 15000 Münzen abgebildet sind. Der Textteil ist hier komplett und ebenso das Grundwerk in 6 Tafellieferungen, es fehlt wohl lediglich ein später noch erschienenes kleines Supplement. - Die meisten Bibliotheken haben nur einzelne Abteilungen, nur ganz wenige Bibliotheken besitzen ein nahezu oder ganz komplettes Exemplar mit allen Lieferungen. Entsprechend ist das Werk auf dem Antiquariatsmarkt außerordentlich selten, auf den Buchauktionen der letzten ca. 20 Jahre konnte ich lediglich ein einziges (Teil)-Exemplar finden und zwar die 34 Kupfertafeln der Abteilung Numismata Antiqua Familiarum Romanarum nebst Titelblatt. Dieser Teilband wurde 2016 für ca. 2000 Dollar versteigert bei Kolbe & Funning auction 141 (USA). - Schönes Exemplar in sauberer Gesamterhaltung. Versand D: 5,00 EUR
