        Tal, om Märkwärdigheter uti insecterne, hållt för Wettenscaps Academien uti Auditorio Illustri på första Præsidentskapet aflades 1739. D. 3. October.

      Stockholm, Pet. Momma, 1739. Small 8vo. Preserved in covers of older blindstamped golden paper. Title-page a bit soiled and with old owner's names (one of them crossed out, the other one being Roland Martin). A small restoration to lower blank margin of title-page. Woodcut initial at beginning and woodcut end-vignette. (18) pp.. Exceedingly rare first edition, first issue (with an excellent provenance) of Linnaeus' seminal speech which has gone down in history as one of the most famous and influential summations on the economy of nature - demonstrated by "curiosities among insects". With poetical eloquence, Linnaeus shows us the wonder of the small creature that is the insect and beautifully ties together the nature of the world that we live in, providing to all living things a means and an end. Published merely four years after the groundbreaking first edition of the "Systema Natura" - and two decades before the definitive 10th edition of it - Linnaeus, in this epochal speech, points us to the fact that only with the "Systema Natura" had the true nature of the insect been discovered, revealing to us also the true wonder of nature. This groundbreaking speech was given at the inauguration of the Royal Academy of Sciences in Stockholm in 1739. Linnaeus himself was one of the founders of the academy; this foundational speech not only marks the beginning of the world-changing Academy of Sciences, being the first in a long series of presiding speeches that were given four times a year (when the Academy chose a new chairman), it also marks an epoch in the theory of natural history. The frequent reprinting of the speech bears witness to its epochal character and the importance it came to hold for Linnaeus himself. The extremely scarce first issue was printed by Momma in a poor antiqua setting, mixing three different styles, and the last three pages are in a smaller font. New issues appeared in Swedish in 1747 and 1752, the speech was reprinted in Latin numerous times in different issues of the "Amoenitates", and it was translated into English and German. When occupying oneself with the greatest modern zoologist, Carl von Linné, the founder of binominal nomenclature, one rarely comes across references to his philosophical theory of the world. Unlike many modern thinkers, 18th century scientists and philosophers did not find the notion of God as ruler of the Universe incompatible with hard scientific facts. On the contrary, the relationship between God and Nature was an issue of crucial importance to many natural scientists of the period. The present speech constitutes the most important declaration of Linnaeus' thoughts on the subject, presenting him as what we would call a "physicotheologist". By means of the "curiosities among insects", Linnaeus here presents Nature as a single, self-regulating global entity - an entity that is a wonder created by God. The present publication constitutes one of the most personal works that Linnaeus ever wrote and provides with a direct insight into his entire world view - the view of the world that enabled us to properly classify and systematize all living things. It is not least due to the present work that Linnaeus was so widely admired by the greatest of his contemporaries. In his own time he was not only admired for his great scientific accomplishments, he became famous for wider cultural reasons and for the moral qualities that understream his scientific work. That is the main reason why he was considered a hero by the likes of Rousseau and why the likes of Goethe made debating Linnaeus a pastime in fashionable Romantic circles. The work is of the greatest scarcity. OCLC lists merely six copies in libraries world-wide, two of which are in the US: Kansas State University and North Carolina State University. The remaining four copies are in: Sweden, France, UK, and The Netherlands. ROLAND MARTIN (1726-1788) was prominent physician, who was a student of Linnaeus. He studied at the University of Uppsala and here defended his dissertation in 1745 (under Linnaeus). He was nominated professor of medicine twice, but refused both times. He was considered an excellent teacher and a great physician, but he was a controversian man and caused dramatic debacle when he left the Collegium medicum and joined the Societas chirurgica (only to return in 1766, with a tarnished reputation).

        Carte Topographique des Environs & du Plan de Paris leveé par Msr l'Abbé Delagrive, & Copie selon l'original Parisien par les heritiers de feu Dr Homann." " Karte von der Gegend und GunDdrisder Stadt Paris

      Europe: Nuremberg Hom?"nisehen Erben. Homann Heirs. 1739. Copper engraved town plan of Paris and environs by Homann Heirs Original colour; title and text in French and German;verso blank. The plan is based on Abbé Jean Delagrive's map of 1738 showing the greater environs of Paris at the time, many of today's districts appear as villages; with a key listing 63 landmarks.

Good impression; worm tracks ( approx 15 & 5mm) to key, 3 tiny worm holes to image and a couple more plus a short track to left margin. Homann Heirs, "Homann Erben", "Homanniani Heredes", "Heritiers de Homann"continued the company of Johann Baptist Homann from 1724-1748, they reissued his maps and also produced many new maps during that time. Johann Baptist Homann (1664 ?" 1724) from 1687 Homann worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house. Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as recommendation for potential customers. In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece "Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt" Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann Heirs company, in business until 1848, known as "Homann Erben", "Homanniani Heredes", "Heritiers de Homann" abroad. Europe France Paris

        A Treatise of Humane Nature:

      London: John Noon, (vol. III Thomas Longman),, 1739-40. Being An Attempt to introduce the experimental Method of Reasoning into Moral Subjects. 3 volumes, octavo (202 × 123 mm). Volumes 1 & 2 in uniform contemporary mottled calf, volume 3 in contemporary sprinkled calf, spines ruled and decorated gilt in compartments, volume 3 (very slightly smaller) similarly decorated to style, later red and black labels, sprinkled edges. Preserved in a book form custom-made morocco-backed cloth box. Contemporary ownership inscriptions of T. Hayter to volume 1, and of John Crotch of Okehampton to volume 3, with a later ownership inscription in volume 2. Joints, inner hinges and corners skilfully restored. Internally very crisp and clean; withal a most attractive set. First edition of Hume's first great work, with all the usual cancels, complete with the supplementary third volume, rarely found thus. Hume composed the first two books before he was 25 during his three years in France. He returned to London with the finished manuscript by mid-September 1737, but he did not sign articles of agreement with a publisher, John Noon, for another twelve months, and the two volumes finally appeared, anonymously, at the end of January 1739. Already fearing that they would not be well received, Hume had meanwhile begun a third volume, Of Morals, in part a restatement of the arguments of these first two books, which was not published until 5 November 1740, by a different publisher, Thomas Longman. Hume treated the third volume as a discrete work in its own right in so far as he later "cast anew" its contents alone as An Enquiry Concerning the Principles of Morals (1751). As a result of this broken-backed publication history, the three volumes of the Treatise are rarely found together. "The book comes up for sale so seldom that one may doubt whether more than one or two hundred can be extant" (Keynes and Sraffa, in their introduction to Hume's Abstract).

(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.

        Diccionario de la lengua castellana, en que se explica el verdadero sentido de las voces, su naturaleza y calidad, con las frases o modo de hablar, los proverbios o refranes y otras cosas convenientes del uso de la lengua [Diccionario de Autoridades].

      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.

      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.

        Verordnung der Fürsten und Stände des Schwäbischen Kreises zu Eindämmung der ausgebrochenen Pest: Ob man zwar verhoffet, es würde die vor einiger Zeit in dem Bannat Temesvvar, nicht minder in dem Fürstenthum Siebenbürgen und anderer Ort in dem Königreich Hungarn sich hervor gethane gefährliche Seucheunter den Menschen durch die Gnade des Allerhöchsten sich wiederum vermindern; So ist jedoch höchst-bedauerlich zu vernehmen, daß solche nicht allein continuire / sondern sich auch hier und dar in nur-gedachtem Königreich Hungarn auch anderen angräntzenden Landen auszubreiten beginne....

        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.
