        Histoire de Tamerlan, empereur des Mogols et conquerant de l'Asie

      Chez Hyppolyte - Louis Guerin, 1739. - Chez Hyppolyte - Louis Guerin, à Paris 1739, 2 tomes en 2 Vol. in - 12 (10x17cm), (9) vj - xxxviij, 298pp. et 392pp. (4), reliés. - Seconda edizione ristampa della prima edizione pubblicata nel 1737. è stato condotto dal padre Brumoy. Bound in piena pelle di pecora in marmo di tempo. Torna con i nervi decorato con quattro gioielli. Come una mostra in marocchino rosso, e il numero del volume in pelle beige. Testa mancanza di Volume II, e la mascella superiore in mente. Una fessura lungo la sezione terza e quarta scatole di Volume I. Good copy. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Seconde édition, après la première parue en 1737 (privilège du 4 août 1738). L'édition a été réalisée et publiée par le père Brumoy. Reliures en pleine basane marbrée d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné de 4 fleurons. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge, et de tomaison en maroquin beige. Un manque en tête du tome II, et au mors supérieur en tête. Une fente le long des trosième et quatrième caissons du tome I. Assez bon exemplaire. Deux historiens arabes ont écrit la biographie de Tamerlan, Amehd Ben Arabschah (traduit en français par Vattier au XVIIe) et Sharaf al - Din 'Ali (traduit par Petis de la Croix 10 ans plus tôt), les deux étant très opposés et se contredisant, l'un tendant vers l'hagiographie, l'autre vers la critique et la légende, Margat de Tilly a choisi de trouver un juste milieu en établissant à travers une lecture critique des deux auteurs arabes, une nouvelle histoire de Tamerlan qu'il pense plus conforme à la vérité. Cette lecture critique s'est étendue à tous les historiens qui se sont penchés sur la destinée du conquérant. Enfin l'auteur a nourri son histoire de considérations climatiques, géographiques et historiques.

        Stirpium rariorum in Imperio Rutheno sponte provenientium icones et descriptiones

      St. Petersburg: Academia Scientiarum, 1739. Two important and generously illustrated botanical works produced by respected Linnaean correspondents at the Imperial Academy of Sciences at St. Petersburg. Amman?s Stirpium rariorum contains useful descriptions of 285 plants from Eastern Europe and ?Ruthenia? (now Ukraine), enhanced with 35 clear engravings. According to Hunt, Amman ?made a notable contribution to Russian taxonomy under Peter the Great and his immediate successors; and was thus a precursor of Gmelin and Pallas? (Hunt 511). The plates are unsigned throughout, although a small engraving on the dedicatory leaf of Amman?s work is signed by P[hilipp] G[Georg] Mattarnovy (/Filip Jegorovitch, 1716-1742), a Swiss-Italian artist drawn to the St. Petersburg Academy. The engravings are here labeled in ink with alternative Latinate names, suggesting that an early reader attempted to apply Linnaeus? new system to these species. Buxbaum?s Centuria I-V is one of the first publications to describe and illustrate such a substantial portion of the vegetation of eastern Europe and Asia Minor. In addition to constituting one of the first scientific works on the flora of Estonia, the Centuria also offers the first descriptions of plants along the coast of the Black Sea, Armenia, and Greece. Buxbaum accomplished much of his research while accompanying the imperial chancellor Count Romanzoff to Constantinople. The work would ultimately consist of five parts, which were issued separately between 1728-1740 (the entire set received two editions). The final two volumes of the Centuria were published posthumously by Johann Gmelin, which may account for their separate appearance here. The Swiss Amman (1707-1741), who studied under Herman Boerhaave at Leyden, was Curator of Hans Sloane?s natural history collection in London. In 1733 he was summoned to Russia to become a professor of botany at the Imperial Academy of Sciences at St. Petersburg. Buxbaum (1693-1730) was also a professor of botany in St. Petersburg, one of many Germans who made important contributions to the Imperial Academy. Both men corresponded with Linnaeus, even sending rare Russian specimens and seedlings to Sweden.. Large 4to. [26 x 20.5 cm], (6) ff., including one engraved vignette showing a garden scene, 210 pp., 1 blank, (7) ff. [the last an erratum], 35 consecutively numbered plates; note: plates xiv and xvi on a single folding leaf. [Bound with:]BUXBAUM, Johann Christian. Plantarum minus Cognitarum Centuria IV-V [including Appendix] complectens Plantas circa Byzantium & in Oriente Observatas. St. Petersburg, Typographia Academiae, 1733-40. Two (of five) volumes. (2) ff., 40 pp., 39 plates; (2) ff., 48 pp., 65 plates (in part V & appendix). Bound in contemporary vellum over boards, title inked on spine with trace of armorial shelf mark. Danish library stamp on title. Light marginal foxing throughout, minor worming on a few corners of Amman. Amman plates carefully labeled in ink with alternative, Linnaean plant names. Generally a wide-margined copy, (very) good.

        Essai de physique. Avec une description de nouvelles sortes de Machines Pneumatiques, Et un recueil d'Expériences par Mr. J[ean] V[an] M[usschenbroek]

(2), de 503 à 914, (32) pages, 17 planches, 1 carte ; 63, (1) et 4 planches ; (8) pages pleine basane fauve de l'époque, dos à 5 nerfs (reliure uniformément forttée) 1739, 1739, in - 4, 2 volumes in - 4 de I. portrait, (2), XXV, (3), 502 pages et 13 planches ; et de II. (2), de 503 à 914, (32) pages, 17 planches, 1 carte ; 63, (1) et 4 planches ; (8) pages, pleine basane fauve de l'époque, dos à 5 nerfs (reliure uniformément forttée), Première illustration du miroir de Lieberkühn. Première édition française, parue la même année que l'édition originale hollandaise, après une première latine publiée en 1734 et qui ne comptait qu'un volume et 21 planches. 34 planches gravées sur cuivre dont la grande carte dépliante montrant les déclinaisons magnétiques terrestres (numérotées de 1 à 29 avec 5bis et 4 planches numérotées de I à IV). Pieter van Musschenbroek (1692 - 1761), professeur de physique à Leyde, était un admirateur de Newton et de la physique de Désaguliers. Pour la rédaction de son ouvrage, il s'inspira fortement de celui de ce dernier qui avait été publié à Londres en 1725. Initiateur de la physique expérimentale en Hollande, son enseignement était particulièrement recherché pour la qualité de ses démonstrations ; son nom reste attaché à l'invention de la bouteille de Leyde. Rappelons au passage que c'est Musschenbroek et ses élèves qui réalisèrent la célèbre expérience sur le vide, dite "expérience de Leyde". A la planche XVIII, l'auteur illustre pour la première fois, l'invention par Lieberkuhn du son miroir réflecteur (invention qui sera utilisée jusque durant la seconde moitié du XIXe siècle) : "on a aussi trouvé il n'y a pas longtems une bonne manière d'éclairer considérablement les objets, qui sont grands et opaques, afin de pouvoir les examiner avec toute sorte de microscope, et même à l'aide des plus petits. [C']est un petit Miroir Sphérique concave, d'Argent fin, bien poli et bien uni, dont la Lumière est réfléchie dans un Foier, qui tombe sur l'Objet, ce qui le rend fort éclairé par derrière." (page 595). Les huit dernières pages de cet ouvrage sont en fait une sorte de catalogue intitulé: "liste de diverses machines de physique, de mathématique, d'anatomie et de chirurgie", avec les prix indiqués en florins. Ces "machines" se trouvent à Leyde, chez Jan van Musschenbroek, le frère de l'auteur. Sur les deux pages de titre, l'ex - libris manuscrit de François - Antoine Maternus Humbourg et son cachet.

Questa edizione è stata successivamente aumentata ed è molto difficile trovare la data dell'originale, certamente in 2 volumi. Esso è illustrato con 21 belle facce, 5 pieghevoli (ritratto Mehemet, una Veduta di Costantinopoli, ritratti Richelieu, Cavalieri di Malta, le figure dei cinesi, Tartari, arabi ...

Nonostante alcuni difetti, un bellissimo, molto bello. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition. Cette édition a été successivement augmentée et on donne 1684 pour la date de l'originale, certainement en 2 volumes. Elle est illustrée de 21 jolies figures, dont 5 dépliantes (portrait de Méhemet ; une vue de Constantinople, de Perpignan, les portraits de Richelieu, des Chevaliers de Malte ; figures des Chinois, Tartares, Arabes... Planches sur le Maroc, les habitants des Antilles etc.). Pages de titre en rouge et noir. On constate souvent un nombre de planches sensiblement différent d'une édiiton à l'autre, et suivant les dates.

Une trace de mouillure en fin du tome I. Malgré quelques défauts, bel ensemble, très appréciable. L'espion turc est le premier ouvrage dont la forme particulière aura de prestigieux suiveurs, dont Montesquieu avec les Lettres persanes est sans aucun doute le plus illustre, mais on pourrait citer également Boyer d'Argens et ses Lettres juives, Lettres chinoises... un observateur étranger, envoyé par son pays, porte témoignage du monde et de l'histoire européenne. Le fait qu'ici, il s'agit d'un turc étranger aux moeurs européennes, rend le décalage de son regard encore plus pertinent. Il sera question de très nombreuses choses dans ce livre, outre l'histoire de l'Europe, de ses événements ; car le narrateur, dans ses multiples lettres, établit un récit de tout ce qu'il rencontre, de ce qui se passe en Angleterre, en Allemagne, dans les colonies, en Afrique... et même dans les sciences (il est notamment question du monde de Descartes), les spectacles et les belles - lettres, et les grands personnages du temps. Selon Brunet, Marana ne serait responsable que des quatre premiers volumes, Cotolondi serait un de ses suiveurs. Prestigieuse provenance.

        Provincia Mexicana apud Indos Ordinis Carmelitarum Discalceatorum sub Titulo S. Alberti Erecta anno 1588

      1739. "Rarissima carta topografica dell'area del Messico centrale, estesa a nord - ovest fino a Guadalaxara, e a sud - est ad Atequera, con l'indicazione dei conventi carmelitani, incisa da Domenico Franceschini. L'area raffigurata è corrispondente alla provincia istituita nel 1588 dalla Congregazione spagnola dell'Ordine dei Carmelitani Scalzi ed intitolata a Sant' Alberto la cui immagine sormonta il cartiglio con il titolo. La mappa venne pubblicata nell'opera Provinciarum et Conventuum Fratum, ac monalium Discalceatorum Ordinis B Virginis Mariae de monte Carmelo Congregationis Hispaniae Corographica Topographica, et Chronologica Descriptio"" edita a Roma nel 1739. Sulla carta i gradi delle sedi - patriarcale, arcivescovile, episcopale - sono indicati per mezzo di conventi (riconoscibili perché sormontati dalla croce) di grandezza diversa, il cui significato è chiarito sul secondo frontespizio dell'opera. Margini graduati, scala espressa in leghe spagnole - Scala Leucarum Hispaniae (40 miglia =4,5 cm), l'orografia è rappresentata con il disegno delle montagne dal profilo ombreggiato; è riportata anche l'idrografia, con l'indicazione dei nomi dei corsi d'acqua. Nel margine inferiore, due rubriche, una alfabetica e l'altra numerica, con i riferimenti rispettivamente ai Conventi dei Frati (Conventus Fratrum) e a quelli monache carmelitane (conventus Monalium). Tre piccoli cartigli con Guatemala, l'isola di Cuba e parte del Peru. Incisione in rame, completa dei margini bianchi, lievi e sporadiche fioriture, un foto di tarlo nel margine bianco superiore, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione." "A very rare map of central area of Mexico, with Carmelite convents, engraved by Domenico Franceschini. The map shows the province established in 1588 by the Spanish Congregation of the Order of Discalced Carmelites and dedicated to Sant 'Alberto, whose image surmounts the cartouche with the title. In 1588, the Congregation was divided in six provinces plus Mexico (Castilla la Vieja, Castilla la Nueva, Andalucia la Alta, Andalucia la Baja, Aragon and Portugal). Then, the Order expanded throughout Europe and the congregations of Portugal and Italy were created but the three congregations remained independent from each other. The map is part of the work Provinciarum et Conventuum Fratum, ac monalium Discalceatorum Ordinis B Virginis Mariae de monte Carmelo Congregationis Hispaniae Corographica Topographica, et Chronologica Descriptio"" edited in Rome in 1739. Graduated borders, scale in the Spanish miles - Scala Leucarum Hispaniae (40 miles = 4.5 cm), the topography is represented with the design of the mountains from the shaded profile; It is also reported the hydrography, indicating the names of the waterways. In the lower margin, alphabetical and numerical legends respectively, with the references to the Convents of Friars (Conventus Fratrum) and those Carmelite nuns (conventus monalium).

        Pianta di Parigi

      1739. Volume n 2° grande. Pubblicato nel 1739. Con 20 tavole a doppia pagina montate su onglet, aloni di umidità e bruniture soprattutto in prossimità dei margini, lacune ai margini delle ultime 2 tavole che non ledono la parte incisa, legatura originale in marocchino rosso a grana lunga, piatti incorniciati da rotella fitomorfa in oro, al centro dei piatti la nave simbolo della città di Parigi, ai comparti il giglio di Francia. Prima tiratura della più celebre mappa di Parigi a volo di uccello in esemplare di lusso con la legatura alle armi della città. Il progetto venne commissionato nel 1734 da Michel Etienne Turgot (1690 - 1751), allora capo della municipalità parigina, che decise di promuovere la reputazione della città nel mondo. Commissionò il lavoro a Louis Bretez, membro della Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture e professore di prospettiva. Il Bretez iniziò il suo lavoro già nel 1734 godendo di uno speciale permesso di ingresso in ogni luogo della città, per effettuare rilievi, disegni e misure. Il monumentale lavoro richiese ben due anni di rilievi. La pianta del Turgot è disegnata in proiezione isometrica e rappresenta il migliore esempio del cambiamento del rilievo topografico, prima più vicino ad una veduta. Le 21 tavole (una d'insieme) furono incise da Claude Lucas, membro della Royal Academy of Sciences. La mappa venne infine pubblicata nel 1739, e le tavole assemblate in un volume ed offerte al Re di Francia. I volumi venivano usati quali omaggio a personalità ed ambasciatori stranieri.

Bell'esemplare in legatura coeva. "A fine copy of Louis Bretez and Michel - Etienne Turgot's monumental 1739 map of Paris. Turgot's map of Paris is possibly the most ambitious urban mapping ever undertaken. Shows the whole of 18th century Paris and offers a wonderful perspective on the city prior to Baron Georges Eugène Haussmann's 19th - century redesign. Turgot, who held the mayor - like office of Prévôt des Marchands de Paris , commissioned Louis Bretez and Claude Lucas to produce this map in 1734. Oriented to the east on an axonometrical projection, this map is best understood as an aerial view where in every building, window, tree, shadow and park is shown. It took the team nearly five years of exhaustive sketching and surveying to assemble this masterpiece. In order to produce the thousands of sketches and surveys required to complete this map, Bretez was issued a permit to enter every building in Paris. The completed map which consists of twenty individual sheets, can be assembled into a massive and striking display roughly 8 feet by 10 feet. Louis Bretez (fl. 1700 - 1740) was French born sculptor and painter active in the early 18th century. Bretez was a member of the Academie Royale de Peinture et Sculpture in Paris where he specialized in perspective with regard to architecture. Bretez's greatest achievement was his production, with Claude Lucas, of the monumental Turgot Plan of Paris. This spectacular map, one of history's greatest achievements of urban cartography, occupied Bretez from 1734 to 1739. It depicts Paris from a bird's eye perspective with extraordinary detail to the level of individual buildings and trees. Michel - Étienne Turgot (1690 - 1751) a French businessman and civil administrator in the first half of the 18th century. From 1729 to 1740 he held the mayor - like office of Prévôt des Marchands de Paris (""Master of the merchants of Paris"") under King Louis XV. Turgot's greatest claim to fame is his commissioning of Louis Bretez to assemble the spectacular Turgot Plan of Paris, one of the greatest feats of urban cartography ever undertaken. Turgot's more famous son, Anne - Robert - Jacques Turgot, attained prominence as a statesman and economist under Louis the XVI." Parigi Paris Hodgkiss, A. G., Discovering Antique Maps, p. 77.

      Prault, 1739. in - 12, pp. XLVIII, 275, antiporta inciso da Le Bas, titolo in rosso e nero; leg. coeva in p. pelle, titolo in oro su tassello granata, fregi in oro su dorso a nervi. Edizione originale, rarissima (''Édition originale extrêmement rare''; cit.

La prefazione non firmata, ma in realtà attribuita da Barbier e Simon ai padri gesuiti Brunoy et Bougeant, presenta un'interessantissima storia della cucina e descrive la rivoluzione culinaria che prese piede tra il 1715 e il 1750 in Francia, ovvero il tramonto di una civiltà gastronomica che resisteva da oltre tre secoli e la nascita di un'altra tradizione di natura opposta, la Cucina borghese. «L'ancienne cuisine était fort compliquée et d'un détail infini: la cuisine moderne est une espèce de chimie. La science du cuisinier consiste à décomposer, à faire digérer et à quintessencier les viandes; à tirer des sucs nourrissants et pourtant légers, à les mêler et confondre ensemble, de façon que rien ne domine et que tout se fasse sentir..une harmonie de tous les goûts réunis ensemble.» (dalla prefazione). Splendido esemplare, assai fresco (salvo primi fogli con uniforme e lieve brunitura), marginoso, al contropiatto ant. Ex - libris di Raymond Olivier, tra i più rinomati chef del XX secolo che fu anche proprietario de ''Le Grand Véfour'', il primo e più antico ristorante di Parigi.

        THE JEWISH SPY: BEING A PHILOSOPHICAL, HISTORICAL AND CRITICAL CORRESPONDENCE, BY LETTERS WITCH LATELY PASS'D BETWEEN CERTAIN JEWS IN TUKEY, ITALY, FRANCE & C. TRANSL. FROM THE ORIG. INTO FRENCH, BY THE MARQUIS D'ARGENS, AND NOW DONE INTO ENGLISH

      London; Printed For D. Browne And R. Hett, 1739. Later half calf and marbled boards. 16mo. Xii, 303, [45] pages. 17 cm. First English edition. Translated from the original into French, by the Marquis d'Argens; and now done into English. A translation of the first 40 letters only of Lettres juives. ?The original ?Lettres juives, ou correspondence philosophique, historique et critique?? began publication as a series of weekly pamphlets as early as March or April, 1736. By 1737, a year after they were printed at the Hague in book form, they were well known throughout France. ? The first English edition, entitled The Jewish Spy, appeared in London in 1739 (first forty letters only) ? followed by four more volumes in 1740. The second edition, in five volumes, appeared in 1744. ? Matters relating to Jews and Judaism occupy only a small portion of The Jewish Spy, but they engaged some sixteen letters completely [letters 1, 23, 36, etc. ], and references are scattered through no less than seventy others. ? D?Argens, though frequently salting his letters with earthy and ribald humor ? often anti - clerical, rarely descends to jesting about Jews. ? Transparently, the author is no Judaeophile. He offers many harsh chastisements of both Faith and People. Just as he uses Judaism as a constant foil against the weaknesses of Christianity, he exalts Karaism time and again to the detraction of Rabbinism or traditional Judaism. ? undoubtedly he helped create the new atmosphere that made Emancipation possible by the end of the century. ? (Stanley Brav, ?Jews and Judaism in the Jewish Spy?; Studies in Bibliography and Booklore, volume 4, June 1960) . Later fine binding, half calf, raised bands outlined in gilt, title in gilt on spine, marbled boards. Subjects: Jews - Europe. Lettres juives. English. Selections. French Enlightenment. Books published before 1800. OCLC lists 29 copies. Light soiling to corner on title page, otherwise very clean and fresh. Great condition. (SPEC - 36 - 54)

In weiten Kreisen wurde das „anmuthige Schau- und Traurspihl" bekannt, als Manhardt 1738 eine Sammlung von Buß- und Fastenpredigten, mit acht eingestreuten „lebendigen Antreibung- oder Theatralischen Vorstellungen", unter dem Titel Creutz-Schul Christi im Druck veröffentlichte. In einer Szene erscheint Christus als „Pastor bonus", der nicht ruhen kann, bevor auch das letzte verlorene Schäflein gefunden und glücklich „zu der Heerd" gebracht ist: „Komm, ich will dich noch ergetzen | Dich erretten aus der Noth | Ja mein Leben für dich setzen | Für dich gehen in den Todt." Der Auftritt des „Getreu Göttlichen Hirten" schließt mit einem „lebenden Bild", welches das gerettete Schäflein am Fuß des Kreuzes auf dem Kalvarienberg zeigt. Mit ihrer bilderreichen, kraftvollen Sprache hatten die Passionsszenen eine weite Ausstrahlung.

Small name on the title. Old ink inscription on the front flyleaf. Front hinge cracking, but strong; paper of pastedowns cracking) (Note: The Frisian scholar Lodewijk Caspar Valckenaer, 1715-1785, was a pupil of his fellow Frisian Tiberius Hemsterhuis, and after him the greatest Dutch classical scholar of the 18th century. Hemsterhuis, 1685-1766, advised his students in Franeker and later in Leiden, to use especially the lexica of the ancient lexicographers. These works could be of great use for the understanding of textual problems and for the amending of texts of classical authors, and they were of great help to gain a profound knowledge of the Greek language and its vocabulary. For his first fruits Valckenaer chose an unpublished work of the Greek grammarian Ammonius, who lived probably in the first or second century A.D. This edition, the 'editio princeps' of 'De adfinium vocabulorum differentia' made his name. In the preface Valckenaer explains that Ammonius suffered grievous wrongs at the hand of French scholar/printer Henri Estienne who ignored his usefulness in the appendix of his celebrated 'Thesaurus Linguae Graecae' (1572), and who vexed and lacerated him in the preface of his 'De Atticae linguae seu dialecti idiomatis' (1573), and portrayed the ancient lexicographer as a careless ignoramus. ('omnibus modis Ammonium vexavit, & tam contumeliose laceravit, ut, in Ammonio exemplum & incuriae & inscitiae ponendum esse'. Praefatio p. XXV) Young Valckenaer announces that he is going to repair this 'gravissimam iniuriam'. For Valckenaer it is clear (liquido constet), that Ammonius penetrated deep into the nature of the Greek language and the true origin of words. (in interiorem Linguae indolem & veram vocum originem reliquis grammaticis omnibus ignoratam, sese penetravisse Ammonium') (Idem, eodem) The first part consists of the work of Ammonius and several other unpublished ancient grammatici, the second part consists of Valckenaer's notes on Ammonius, and a specimen of the scholia from the 'codex Vossianus'. The untertaking proved to be successful, because it resulted in his appointment as professor of Greek at the University of Franeker in 1741.

        A Curious Herbal, containing Five Hundred Cuts, of the most useful plants, which are now used in the Practice of Physick.

      London: John Nourse, 1739. - 2 volumes. Folio (14 4/8 x 9 inches). Engraved title-pages, vignette dedication leaves and indexes. 500 fine hand-colored engraved plates (some inoffensive spotting). Contemporary speckled panelled calf (rebacked to style, a bit rubbed, late 19th-century endpapers). Provenance: with the ownership inscriptions of Ella Fuller Maittand dated 1892 on the verso of the front free endpapers; with Charles Traylen, 1982, $6745 Second edition. Begun in 1735 as an attempt to unify medical and botanical illustrated texts on useful plants and, in the hope of having her husband released from debtor's prison, Elizabeth Blackwell rented a house opposite the Chelsea Physic Garden, at 4, Swan Walk, at the suggestion of Isaac Reed, in order to draw and engrave the plants there. Her husband helped by supplying the common names of the plants in various languages. After finishing the drawings Elizabeth engraved them on copper herself, and coloured the 500 prints individually by hand. Initially published in weekly parts, the first volume, which contained commendations from the Royal College of Physicians, was completed in 1737, the second in 1738 or early 1739. The work was an enormous success, her husband went to Sweden where he was employed as an agricultural expert (Linnaeus visited him in 1746), but he unfortunately became involved with a political intrigue and was execute in 1747.

De Monstris ac Monstrosis quibusdam ad Josephum Puteum sanctissimi D.N. Benedicti XIV Pontificis Maximi... Venetiis, Typis Joannis Baptistae Pasqualis, 1749. 4to. pp. (36), with woodcut title vignette and 3 folded engraved plates (Together with:) COLONNA, F. Phytobasanos cui accessit Vita Fabi et Lynceorum notitia adnotationesque in Phytobasanon Iano Planco Ariminensi... Florentiae, I.P. Aere, & Typis Petri Caietani Viviani, 1744. 4to. pp. (2), 52, 134, (2), with engraved title vignette and 38 engraved plates. Contemporary vellum, spine with gilt lettering. Janus Plancus is the pseudonym of S.G. Bianchi. Bianchi (1693-1775) who was a physician, scientist and polygraph from Rimini. The first work is the first edition. The fine plates show marine animals of the Adriatic sea such as shells and crustacean. The book also gives one of the earliest descriptions of foraminifera which were collected by the author on the beach of Rimini. "... Plancus versuchte, Schalen lebender Thiere zu finden, welche Ammonshörnern in ihrer Bildung entsprachen. Er schilderte einige analoge, aber mikroskopische Schalen... Hiermit wurden die Rhizopodenformen entdeckt, welche man.. heute Polythalamien nennt" (Carus p. 458). The second work is the first edition and a study of zoological and botanical deformations. The third work is the second edition of Colonna's famous work, first published in 1592 and edited by Plancus. The first edition of the 'Phytobasanos' was the first botanical work with etched plates. The plates were by the author Fabio Colonna, an Italian laywer, scientist (1567-1650). He was a distinguished botanist and is credited with the dicovery of about 80 new plants. Giovanni Bianchi is burried in the church of Sant'Agostino in Rimini and on his funeral monument the following surprising text is found "Nascitur Infelix, Vixit Infelicior, Obiit Infelisissime" (He was born unhappy, he lived more unhappy, he died maximally unhappy). An interesting and rare collection of Plancius' works.//I: Cobres p. 424; II: Cobres p. 294; III: Cobres p. 511.

        Les Dons De Comus, Ou Les Delices De La Table.

      Ouvrage non-seulement utile aux Officiers de Bouche pour ce qui concerne leur art, mais principalment a l'usage des personnes qui sont curieuses de çavoir donner à manger, e d'être servies délicatement, tant en gras qu'en maigre, suivant les saisons, e dans le goût le plus nouveau. A Paris, Chez Prault, 1739, - in-12, pp. XLVIII, 275, antiporta inciso da Le Bas, titolo in rosso e nero; leg. coeva in p. pelle, titolo in oro su tassello granata, fregi in oro su dorso a nervi. Edizione originale, rarissima (''Édition originale extrêmement rare''; cit. Oberlé, 108), di uno dei ricettari più importanti del XVIII secolo, a cui fecero seguito numerose ristampe, in 3 volumi, aggiornate ed aumentate dall'autore, che fu maître d'hôtel del Duca di Rohan. La prefazione non firmata, ma in realtà attribuita da Barbier e Simon ai padri gesuiti Brunoy et Bougeant, presenta un'interessantissima storia della cucina e descrive la rivoluzione culinaria che prese piede tra il 1715 e il 1750 in Francia, ovvero il tramonto di una civiltà gastronomica che resisteva da oltre tre secoli e la nascita di un'altra tradizione di natura opposta, la Cucina borghese. «L'ancienne cuisine était fort compliquée et d'un détail infini: la cuisine moderne est une espèce de chimie. La science du cuisinier consiste à décomposer, à faire digérer et à quintessencier les viandes; à tirer des sucs nourrissants et pourtant légers, à les mêler et confondre ensemble, de façon que rien ne domine et que tout se fasse sentir.une harmonie de tous les goûts réunis ensemble.» (dalla prefazione). Splendido esemplare, assai fresco (salvo primi fogli con uniforme e lieve brunitura), marginoso, al contropiatto ant. Ex-libris di Raymond Olivier, tra i più rinomati chef del XX secolo che fu anche proprietario de ''Le Grand Véfour'', il primo e più antico ristorante di Parigi. Vicaire 284,285; Bitting 307,308; Simon, 1001. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The fine plates show marine animals of the Adriatic sea such as shells and crustacean. The book also gives one of the earliest descriptions of foraminifera which were collected by the author on the beach of Rimini. ". Plancus versuchte, Schalen lebender Thiere zu finden, welche Ammonshörnern in ihrer Bildung entsprachen. Er schilderte einige analoge, aber mikroskopische Schalen. Hiermit wurden die Rhizopodenformen entdeckt, welche man. heute Polythalamien nennt" (Carus p. 458). The second work is the first edition and a study of zoological and botanical deformations. The third work is the second edition of Colonna's famous work, first published in 1592 and edited by Plancus. The first edition of the 'Phytobasanos' was the first botanical work with etched plates. The plates were by the author Fabio Colonna, an Italian laywer, scientist (1567-1650). He was a distinguished botanist and is credited with the dicovery of about 80 new plants. Giovanni Bianchi is burried in the church of Sant'Agostino in Rimini and on his funeral monument the following surprising text is found "Nascitur Infelix, Vixit Infelicior, Obiit Infelisissime" (He was born unhappy, he lived more unhappy, he died maximally unhappy).

        ANATOMIA CORPORUM HUMANORUM

      Leyden: Johann Arnold Langerak, 1739. First Edition in Latin n. With plates of notable visual impressiveness, this was the finest anatomy book in England during the first half of the 18th century; it also was largely a plagiarism, borrowing most of its engraved content from a work by the Dutch physician Govert Bidloo published in 1685. Bidloo's work was the first large-scale anatomical atlas to appear after Vesalius' epoch-making "De Humani Corporis Fabrica," and the plates, which are highly praised by Norman and Garrison-Morton, are characterized by startlingly detailed life-size depictions of the human body (both adult and infant), with figures flayed to reveal muscles, opened to show organs, and unfleshed to exhibit bones. According to Choulant-Frank, Bidloo's publishers sold 300 impressions of these plates to Cowper, probably to recoup some of their money after disappointing sales. Cowper took Bidloo's original 105 plates, added nine of his own, and produced an English translation of the original Latin text to accompany them. Discussing the original plates produced by Gerard de Lairesse (1641-1711), Norman says that the figures are displayed "in an emotional, almost tender manner, contrasting the raw dissected parts with the full, soft surfaces of uncut flesh, placing flayed, bound figures in ordinary nightclothes or bedding, setting ordinary household objects such as books, jars, or cabinets in the same scene as cut-up torsos or limbs. His illustrations brought the qualities of Dutch still-life painting into anatomical illustration, and gave a new, darker spiritual expression to the significance of the act of dissection." When Cowper's version of the atlas first appeared as "The Anatomy of Humane Bodies" in London in 1698 (there was also a 1737 Leyden printing in English before our more scholarly Latin edition), Bidloo complained to the Royal Society and accused Cowper of plagiarism and fraud, resulting in much acrimony and heated pamphleteering between the two physicians. Notwithstanding this scandal, Cowper's achievements and discoveries--including the pair of glands that bear his name--were considerable, and his text improved significantly upon the original work. Unfortunately, as the DNB notes, "the notoriety of this case has served to obscure a true appreciation of Cowper and of his many original contributions to anatomical illustration." The atlases of Bidloo and Cowper appear on the market regularly, but at 540 x 380 mm., the present copy is distinguished by its size, which is significantly larger than what is typically seen with this edition--we have not been able to trace a copy larger than ours from marketplace or institutional records.. 540 x 380 mm. (21 1/4 x 15"). [70] leaves of text.Translated by William Dundass. First Edition in Latin. Original quarter red vellum over marbled boards, raised bands, UNTRIMMED EDGES. Engraved printer's device on title, large decorative initials and tailpieces, EXTRA ENGRAVED TITLE AND 114 STRIKING PLATES OF ANATOMICAL FIGURES (three folding). Wellcome II, 401; Heirs of Hippocrates 468; Choulant-Frank, pp. 252-3; Russell 213. Vellum on spine rather worn, with three one-and-one-half-inch pieces broken away revealing structure underneath, paper boards quite chafed, other minor problems externally, but an entirely solid unrestored binding. A couple of plates with short closed marginal tears, one folding plate with one-inch closed tear into image (no loss), untrimmed edges a little browned and brittle, with isolated small chips, occasional minor foxing or insignificant stains, three plates lightly browned, but still AN UNUSUALLY ATTRACTIVE COPY INTERNALLY, with the broadest of margins, with especially clean and fresh leaves, and with rich impressions of the plates. With plates of notable visual impressiveness, this was the finest anatomy book in England during the first half of the 18th century; it also was largely a plagiarism, borrowing most of its engraved content from a work by the Dutch physician Govert Bidloo published in 1685.
