(last 2 blank) Vellum 20.5 cm (Ref: Hoffmann 1,125; Brunet 1,239; Ebert 536) (Details: Six thongs laced through covers; both titles in red & black; engraved printer's mark on title, designed by F. v. Bleyswyck, depicting a ship heading for Scylla and Charybdis; its motto: 'nec dextrorsum, nec sinistrorsum') (Condition: Vellum slightly soiled; small name on title; old ink inscription on front flyleaf; front hinge cracking, but strong; paper of pastedowns cracking.) (Note: L.C. Valckenaer, 1715-1785, a pupil of T. Hemsterhuis, and after him the greatest Dutch classical scholar of the 18th century. Hemsterhuis advised his students to use especially the lexica of the ancient lexicographers. These works could be of great use for the understanding of textual problems and 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. Valckenaer chose an unpublished work of the Greek grammarian Ammonius, who lived probably in the first or second century A.D. This edition, the editio princeps of 'De adfinium vocabulorum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' is Valckenaer's first fruit, and it made his name. The first part consists of the work of Ammonius and several other unpublished grammatici, the second part consists of Valckenaer's notes on Ammonius, and a specimen of the scholia from the 'codex Vossianus'.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.

        Plate illustrating the defeat of the Spanish Armada by the English Fleet under the command of Lord Howard of Effingham in 1588]

      John Pine, London 1739 - Engraved plate printed in blue. Very good condition apart from a few tiny tears and small losses at the extreme edges. A beautiful plate from a highly decorative series of great historical value. This fine image is from Pine's The Tapestry Hangings of the House of lords Representing the several Engagements between the English and Spanish Fleets, in the ever memorable Year 1588. Shortly after the defeat of the Armada, Lord Howard of Effingham commissioned a series of charts of the various phases of the action from Robert Adams. Adams' works were then passed on to H.C. Vroom, who produced a collection of tapestry designs based on them. These designs were subsequently woven by Francis Spring of Haarlem in Holland. The completed works were later sold to James I and eventually ended up in the House of Lords. Since almost all of the hangings perished in the fire of 1834 at the Palace of Westminster, the plates from this series constitute the only visual record of these valuable images. Cf. Berlin Catalogue 1677.

      Madrid, Francisco del Hierro, 1726-1739 - Fol. mayor (33 x 23,3 cm). 6 tomos, plena piel de época marmoleada, greca dorada en planos, lomos con nervios, hierros y doble tejuelo –rojo y verde–. “El diccionario se conoce como De Autoridades, por recoger en cada una de las entradas, citas de autores que ejemplifican o corroboran la definición dada. El Diccionario de Autoridades es el primer diccionario confeccionado por la Real Academia Española (RAE) y surge por el miedo de los académicos a la pérdida de la lengua castellana pura, poco después de la fundación de esta institución en 1713. En el prólogo se establecen los criterios lexicográficos y ortográficos que seguirá la RAE, así; como su lema: «Limpia, fija y da esplendor», que hace referencia a una de las mayores preocupaciones de los primeros académicos, la pureza del castellano: se veía como una lengua que ya había alcanzado su perfección con los escritores del Siglo de Oro y que podía corromperse por el paso del tiempo y por el mal uso de la lengua por parte de ciertos hablantes, entre otros los afrancesados, pues se miraba con recelo el préstamo abusivo del francés.” [El Diccionario de Autoridades, Javier C.

        PLAN DE PARIS Commencé l’année 1734, dessiné et gravé sur les ordres de Messire Michel-Etienne Turgot, Marquis de Sousmons, Seigneur de St-Germain-sur-Eaulne, Vatierville, et autres Lieux.... Achevé de graver en 1739. Lev&eacute

      Paris,, 1739.. In folio (cm. 56,5 x 45), legatura alle armi della città di Parigi in p. marocchino rosso (con aloni e lievi abrasioni), cornice dorata ai piatti con fiori di giglio agli angoli, dorso a cordoni con ricca decoraz. e tit. oro, dentelles dorate ai risg., tagli sup. dorati. "Prima edizione" di una delle più famose piante di Parigi, nota come le ?"Plan de Turgot?". E?' una pianta della città - a volo d?'uccello - di eccezionale formato, suddivisa in 20 tavole a doppia pagina, inc. in rame e numerate (ciascuna di 80 x 51,5 cm.), accompagnata da 1 tavola con l?'intera area (inc. al tratto) che serve da Indice (84 x 64 cm.). Il titolo è inciso al centro di due tavole unite (160 x 54 cm.). La pianta copre un?'area presso a poco corrispondente ai primi undici arrondissements dell?'epoca moderna. Di tutte le rappresentazioni cartografiche di Parigi questa, realizzata per ordine di Michel Etienne Turgot (1690-1751), capo della municipalità parigina, è la più seducente. L'artista-topografo Louis Bretez - che la disegnò dal 1734 al 1736 - non redasse una pianta, magari perfetta, ma una veduta prospettica che ci consente di attraversare con gli occhi i monumenti, le case, gli hotels, le piazze, i giardini, i boulevard, i sobborghi, le chiese, i castelli e avere della città una immagine parlante. Parigi nei primi decenni del Settecento non possedeva ancora vedute prospettiche che potessero confrontarsi con le vedute urbane realizzate a Venezia, Roma e Napoli tra Cinque e Seicento. Parigi giunse in ritardo al suo "ritratto di città", ma recuperò splendidamente il terreno. Come tutte le grandi vedute urbane anche questa di Parigi nasce dall' esigenza di celebrare la città, di glorificarne la bellezza e la prosperità. Il committente Turgot, padre di Anne Robert Jacques, ministro di Luigi XVI, fu un amministratore illuminato e un amico della Repubblica delle Lettere: la sua fu un' impresa fuori dall'usuale ed ebbe la fortuna di trovare in Bretez, membro dell?'Accademia Reale di Pittura e Scultura e professore di prospettiva, un artista all'altezza delle sue ambizioni. Esemplare stampato su carta forte; la tav. 11 restaur. per strappo ma complessivam. ben conservato.

        Broadside Declaring War on Spain

      London 1739 - Broadside, "His Majesty's Declaration of War Against the King of Spain," John Bassett, printer, London, October 19, 1739, 16 x 21 in., with contemporary manuscript notes and docketing, October 23, 1739. Parliament goes to war after Robert Jenkins displays his detached ear. This document launched what was known as the War of Jenkins's Ear, 1739 - 1748, which became a part of the larger War of Austrian Succession after three years. After being accused of piracy, Robert Jenkins, captain of a British merchant ship, had his ear cut off following the boarding of his vessel by the Spanish coastal guard in 1731. Jenkins then allegedly exhibited his severed ear in Parliament the next year. The broadside cites the predations of Spanish privateers in the West Indies as the cause of hostilities. A manuscript note reads "This Declaration of War was published in solemn form at the usual places in London on Tuesday 23d October 1739." Seven copies are listed in the English Short Title Catalog of the British Library.ConditionGood. Moderate wear.

        Opera varia inunum congesta. 2 Bde in 1 Bd. = De Motu Cordis et de Aneurismatibus.

      . Venice, Sanctus Pecori, 1739, Folio, XXXVI, 262 pp.; XII, 265, (25) pp., with 2 großen gefalteten Karten, 10 Kupfertafeln, Pappband d.Zt; frisches , feines Exemplar.. The best, the moste complete and rarest edition of the collected works of this great Italian clinician. This rare and important collection contains: - - De Subitaneis Mortibus Libri duo. - Differtatio de Nativis, deque Adventitiis Romani Coli Qualitatibus, cui accedit Hiftoria Epidemiae Rheumaticae, quae per hyemem anni 1709. vagata eft. - De Noxiis Paludum Effluviis Libri duo. - Dissertatio Hiftorica de Bovilla Pefte, ex Campaniae fin ibus anno 1713. Latio importata, cui accedit Confilium de Equorum Epidemia, quae Romae graflata eft anno 1712. - De Recta Studiorum Medicorum ratione instituenda. - Humani Corporis Anatomica Synpfis. - De humorum secretionibus in genere, ac praecipue de bilis in hepate separatione. - An acidum ex sanguine extrahi queat. - De triplici Inteftinorum Polypo. - De Phyfiognomia. - De Sede Cogitantis animae. - De Ortu, Vegetatione, ac textura fungorum. - De Plinianae Villae Ruderibus. - Forma, ac Methodus delcribendae morborum hiftoriae. - De Motu Cordis & Aneurysmatibus. - - Lancisi laid the basis for cardiac pathology with his observation of valvular lesions and cardiac dilatation in correlation with symptoms of disease. He was the first to describe cardiac syphilis, he also notable as an epidemiologist, with clear insight into the theory of contagion. The copperplates depict the cardio-vascular system, the maps relate to the Pontine Marshes near Rome. - In 'De Motu Cordis et de Aneurysmatibus', in which the germ of many later notions can be found. For instance, Lancisi gave very clear descriptions of warthy growths on valves and of dilated and strongly pulsating cervical veins in right heart dilatation (differentiating them from the pulsations in chlorosis). It should be noted that Lancisi described also correctly the genuine arterial (in particular aortic) and caridac aneurysm, as we know it. Still more pertinent to present day cardiology was his 'De subitaneis Mortibus'. Of course the definition of sudden death was not so strict as it is now - much debated as this question has been in our own time - but it is interesting that Pope Clement XI, alarmed by a recent increase of the number unexpected deaths among prominent people in Rome, ordered Lancisi to inquire by autopsy the cause of every sudden or quickly occuring death in the years 1705 and 1706. The findings proved far from uniform and the epicrisis (Scholium) was often couched in vague terms of iatrochemical hypotheses. However, in some cases of rupture of an aortic aneurysm was found and in ohter instances an aneurym (dilatation) of the heart which probably was due to hypertension or aortitis with aortic insufficiency. In one young patient with valvular disease and a large spleen, bacterial endocarditits may have been present. - Lancisi did also important research on malaria, he pointed out that the fevers afflicting Rome and the surrounding countryside were closely related to the presence of swamps, which encouraged the multiplying of mosquitoes,. By a brillant intuition Lancisi attributed the spread of the disease to these insects, and strongly advocated the draining of the swamps - unfortunately without success. - During his life he collected a personal medical library of considerable size (well over 20,000 volumes) and interest, which he generously donated to the Hospital of Santo Spirito; the library is now named for Lancisi. - - Grundlage der Pathologie der Gefässe und des Herzens! - Giovanni Maria Lancisi (1654-1720) gehört zu den großen römischen Ärzten. Er war der Leibarzt dreier Päpste. Seine klassichen Schriften behandeln die Pathologie der Herzkrankheiten, die Seuchenlehre und Tropenmedizin. Lancisi veröffentlichte 1784 die 1582 entstandenen Tafeln des Eustachius, die bis dahin vergessen in der Vatikanischen Bibliothek lagerten. - - -cf. G.M. 71, 391, 2731, 2973, 5232; DSB VII, p.613ff; Heirs of Hippocrates No.445-448; Snellen, Hist. of Cardiology, p 36ff.. - Fine copy. Not in Cushing, Osler, Waller, etc.

      Jacques Guerin, [Paris] 1739 - (9 5/8 x 7 13/16 inches). 18pp. Contemporary paper-backed boards The very rare first edition of Bellin's extensive account of his map of the "Ocean Meridional" The work includes lengthy separate analyses of the coasts of Africa and of South America as recorded on the map. In addition to geographic locations, observations made in the regions by various explorers are cited. The cartographer Bellin was employed for more than five decades in the French Hydrographic Service, where he served as the first "Ingénieur hydrographe de la Marine." Commissioned to develop new surveys of the coasts of France and then the known coasts of the world, these were published, respectively, as Le Neptune Français in 1735 and the Hydrographie Français between 1756 and 1765. Bellin also published a Petit Atlas Maritime with 580 charts and plans of harbors, issued in five volumes in 1764. The present work was later published as one of thirty reprinted pamphlets in the author's Recueil des Memoires qui ont été publiés avec les Cartes Hydrographiques (Paris ca. 1767).

Though he came from a poor family of Vignola in the district of Modena, he received opportunities to devote himself to the higher studies. Having first been instructed by the Jesuits, he studied law, philosophy, and theology at the University of Modena, he plainly showed his extraordinary talents, especially in literature and history. In 1694 he was ordained priest. In 1695 Count Charles Borromeo called him to the college at the Ambrosian library in Milan, where he immediately started collecting unedited ancient writings of various kinds.

The first French edition of Behren's German account of Jacob Roggeveen's 1721-22 Pacific voyage, which provided important impetus for further exploration for the great Southern Continent. The author was a sergeant and commander of marines on the voyage. Contemporary accounts of Roggeveen's explorations were first published in Dutch in 1728 and in German beginning in 1735. This French translation was based on the Frankfurt and Leipzig editions of 1737. Behrens' scarce narrative tells the story of one of the most significant of the Dutch voyages, ranking with those of Le Maire, Schouten and Tasman. Roggeveen set out to rediscover the part of Terra Australis which Quiros had led the exploring world to believe existed, but in fact added substantially to the Dutch record of Polynesian discoveries, with Easter Island and Samoa described here for the first time. "Roggewein's is the first certified account of contact with Easter Island and its great stone images, as well as the last of the great Dutch circumnavigations" (Cox). "Though some attribute the translation to Charles de Brosses, [Chareles Pierre Claret] Fleurieu believed that the style of language revealed the efforts of a non-native speaker. With the text often more a paraphrasing of the German version than a direct translation, Fleurieu and others credit Behrens himself with the translation" (Hill). European Americana 739/21; Sabin 4379; Hill 99; Cox I, p.51; Borba de Moraes, p.95; Howgego R63. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
