        Travels through North and South Carolina, Georgia, east and west Florida, the Cherokee country, the extensive territories of the Muscogulges or Creek confederacy, and the country of the Chactaws. Containing an account of the soil and natural productions of those regions; together with observations on the manners of the Indians.

      With frontispiece portrait, folding map and 7 engraved plates (1 folding). Later half morocco and marbled boards with gold tooled spine, raised bands, and black title label; a very clean copy with minor stains only affecting just the edges of the end papers. First London edition. An important volume that combines an account of the author?s travels and his natural history observations of the southeastern United states, this work is noted by Sabin as ?unequalled for the vivid picturesqueness of its descriptions of nature, scenery, and productions.? Based on five years of study in the Carolinas, Georgia, and Florida, Bartram?s work includes significant commentary on the Cherokee and Creek Indian tribes as well as descriptions of the flora, fauna, and geography of the region. In fact, had it not been for considerable publication delays (not the least of which was due to the American Revolution), Bartram would have been recognized as having discovered a number of species; nevertheless, this work secured his reputation and influenced a wide range of thinkers from the scientific community to writers like Henry David Thoreau. ?Beyond its scientific importance, the Travels exerted a profound influence on travel literature and on the Romantic movement: Fagin described the work as ?the first genuine and artistic interpretation of the American landscape? (Fagin, 10). Its florid, luxuriant style and vivid imagery caught the attention of Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, and François - August Chateaubriand, who extracted portions into their notebooks? (ODNB). Stevenson similarly called it ?a minor monument of American literature, with vigor of style and excellent pictorial detail.? Bartram (1739?"1823) was an American botanist and ornithologist, son of the naturalist and explorer John Bartram. As a young man William Bartram worked closely with his father, who had been named Royal Botanist to George III, and accompanied him on several trips to various regions of the eastern United States - excursions that would lay the foundation for his later work. Bartram was an influential figure in the careers of several notable naturalists, including Thomas Nuttall, Thomas Say, and Alexander Wilson.

        The history of the heavens, considered according to the notions of the poets and philosophers, compared with the doctrines of Moses.

      Frontispiece to each volume plus 23 full - page plates in Volume I depicting inscriptions and carvings on ancient monuments. Contemporary polished calf, spine gilt in compartments with labels; a fine copy printed on thick paper, front board of Volume I a bit loose, fly - leaf detached. First edition in English of Histoire du ciel consideré selon les idées des poëts, des philosophes, et de Moïse (Paris, 1739), a rare and interesting treatise on the perception, both ancient and modern, of the universe, the creation, and the superiority of Moses? cosmogony. In attempting to make modern science conform to Genesis, Pluche basically refutes the entire range of speculation on the origin of the world which conflicts with Mosaic cosmogony. In displaying the excellence of the physics of Moses, which supposedly conforms to the teachings of both history and experimental physics, he carefully explains his opposition theories proposed by those physicists which he termed ?romans philosophiques.? He even includes an in - depth discussion of Newton?s work. The plates illustrate numerous Egyptian, Roman, and Greek mythological symbols. Many are signed by the popular Paris engraver, Jacques Phillippe Le Bas (1707 - 1783). Pluche (1688 - 1761), a teacher of humanities and rhetoric, was the leading French popularizer of natural theology. A controversial professor of rhetoric at Rheims, he became tutor in physics to, among others, the Earl of Stafford?s son. His most famous work, Spectacle de la nature (1732), was immensely popular as a text on both the Continent and in England, but brought him ridicule in Voltaire?s Candide for its philosophical optimism.

        Histoire de L'Expédition de Trois Vaisseaux. Envoyés par la Compagnie des Indes Occidentales des Provinces-Unies, aux Terres Australes en MDCCXXI

      The Hague: Aux depens de la Compagnie, 1739. Two volumes, small octavo; joints a bit worn but still quite firm, overall a fine set in contemporary mottled calf. From the library of John Montagu. Rare account of the Roggeveen voyage, one of the most important of the Dutch voyages, ranking with those of Le Maire, Schouten and Tasman. It 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. There were altogether three contemporary narrative versions of the voyage, in Dutch, French and German: all are rare. This first French - and generally preferred - edition of Behrens's account was based on the 1737 German version, and very likely translated by Behrens himself, who travelled under Roggeveen as commander of marines, though some authorities have attributed the translation to De Brosses.Roggeveen crossed the Pacific from the east at the head of a three-vessel expedition with largely commercial objects. He specifically sought the fabled continent of Terra Australis, which the English privateer Captain Edward Davis claimed to have sighted in 1680. It did not materialise, but on April 5th 1722 Roggeveen landed at the previously uncharted island which he christened l'isle de Paques (Easter Island). They were the first recorded European visitors to the island and the detailed description of the inhabitants, their extraordinary idols and their way of life is of great value. The expedition later went on to discover some of the outer islands of the Samoan group.Although Roggeveen's voyage failed in its primary objective it provided strong motivation for the authorities who sent Captain Cook out on his first voyage forty-six years later. "Sunday 13th (March 1774). In stretching in for the land we discovered people and those Monuments or Idols mentioned by the Authors of Roggeveen Voyage which left us no room to doubt but it was Easter Island" (Cook's Journal of the Resolution & Adventure, Beaglehole II p.338).This attractive copy originally belonged to John Montagu, Duke of Montagu (c.1688-1749), Governor of St. Lucia and St. Vincent. Each volume of this set has Montagu's library shelf-ticket to the front endpaper, with his crest gilt stamped upon petite crimson morocco spine labels. On his death his residence, Montagu House, was acquired by the Government to house the newly-established British Museum.

        Tracts against the Methodists (spine of volume so labelled)

      A remarkably good and coherent group of eleven pamphlets criticising the emerging Methodist movement, still within the Church of England, inspired by John Wesley (1703-91) and the famous Calvinist preacher, George Whitefield (1714-70), the latter coming in for particular attack. With one exception they were all written by members of the clergy, four of whom were bishops (some of these being also university professors): Samuel Hallifax, Bishop of St Asaph (1733-90), John Green ('Academicus'), Bishop of Lincoln (1705/6-1779), John Douglas, Bishop of Salisbury (1721-1807) and Edmund Gibson, Bishop of London (1669-1748). The other five clergymen, many of whom also had a reputation as scholars and authors, were John Downes (1690/1-1760) of London, Zachary Grey (1688-1766), rector of Houghton Conquest, near Ampthill and a vicar in Cambridge, Joseph Trapp (1679-1747), a high church Tory supporter, who held livings in London and Harlington, Joseph Stokes, a Sussex curate, of whom little is known and the controversial figure of William Dodd (1729-77), the 'macaroni parson,' a writer and fashionable London preacher, who living beyond his means, forged a bill of exchange and was hanged at Tyburn. Richard Tompson, whose correspondence with John Wesley is reprinted in pamphlet 7, is presumably a lay person. Downes refers to 'that frightful monster called Methodism,' and a recurrent theme throughout the pamphlets is a distaste for 'enthusiasm', and sometimes a concern for its consequences: 'that presumptuous assurance of salvation ..... appear to me doctrines of the most dangerous tendency, greatly liable to be misapplied by the common people, and likely to lead them into mistakes of a very mischievous nature' (Green in pamphlet 3). A fine volume of rare pamphlets (the editions of nos. 4, 10 and 11 are particularly scarce in the UK), illuminating the early days of Methodism in England from the point of view of the established church.In the following list, references are made to Rev. Richard Green's Anti-Methodist publications issued during the 18th century, London, 1902. In the case of pamphlet 6 we also refer to Sabin's Dictionary of books relating to America (1875) vol.VII.1.

        Verses on the Death of Doctor Swift. Written by Himself: Nov. 1731

      London: Printed by C. Bathurst, at the Middle-Temple-Gate in Fleet-street, 1739. First edition of the text as edilted by Dr. King. Printer's ornament on title-page. [2], 18 pp. 1 vols. Folio. Three quarter burgundy morocco and cloth. Occasional light soiling. Fine. First edition of Swift's poem, which, to cite the heading of p. [3], was occasioned by a maxim of La Rochefoucauld: "Dans l'adversité de nos meilleurs amis nous trouvons quelque chose, qui ne nous deplaist pas." [In the troubles of our dearesr friends, we find something which is not altogether displeasing]. On the authority of Dr. William King, to whose oversight Swift entrusted the publication, all three of the first London editions were much abridged and purged of verses King deemed offensive to royalty and religion; in addition, King inlcluded 61 lines from "The Life and Genuine Character" of 1733. The Dublin edition of the same year, published by Faulkner, was much more inclusive, and is recognized as the most definitive.

        Merckwürdiges Leben und Thaten Des Prätendenten Von Ungarn und Siebenbürgen, Joseph Ragoczy und seiner Vorfahren. Aus zuverläßigen Nachrichten und Uhrkunden der curiösen Welt zu Gefallen und Plaisir sorgfältig gesammelt von H. E. S

      Frankfurt und Leipzig, 1739.. Mit gest. Portrait-Frontispiz. 7 Bll., 166 S. Karton d. Zt., mit Goldbrokatpapier bezogen. Apponyi 2449. - Joseph Rákóczi (1700-1738), Sohn von Franz II. Rákóczi, wuchs mit seinem Bruder Georg unter Vormundschaft des Kaisers in Wien auf. Sein Vater, Anführer des nach ihm benannten glücklosen Aufstandes, lebte nach seiner Flucht aus der Festung in Wiener Neustadt im polnischen und französischen Exil. Die aus der Slowakei stammende Familie Rakoczi hatte dort und in Siebenbürgen über Generationen großen politischen Einfluss und befand sich in andauernden Kämpfen mit der Monarchie; die Erziehung der Brüder Joseph und Georg unter habsburgischer Aufsicht sollte die Rakoczis endlich an den österreichischen Hof binden. Nach dem Tod des Vaters 1734 floh Joseph aus Wien und wurde von den Gefolgsleuten Franz II. als rechtmäßiger Erbe und Truppenführer anerkannte. Er paktierte mit den ottomanischen Truppen unter Sultan Mahmud I., die aber 1738 eine verheerende Niederlage gegen ?-sterreich erleben mussten. Joseph Rákóczi verstarb kurz danach am 10. November 1738 im bulgarischen Czernavoda an der Pest. - Titelblatt alt aufgezogen. Mit wenigen Unterstreichungen.

        Versuch einer allgemeinen deutschen Synonymik in einem kritisch-philosophischen Wörterbuche der sinnverwandten Wörter der hochdeutschen Mundart. Halle und Leipzig: Joh. Gottfr. Ruff, 1795-1802.

      - First edition. 'Eberhard (1739-1809) can be considered one of the most eminent representatives of German popular philosophy in the late eighteenth century. In opposition to abstract philosophical speculations, his writings are representative of a more empirical approach. He stimulated the contemporary debates in epistemology and metaphysics as well as in anthropology, the theory of emotions, moral philosophy, theology, cultural theory and the analysis of language. He engaged in the public debates on Enlightenment philosophy . Eberhard also had an important impact on German philology as the editor of the first German thesaurus which he published under the title "Versuch einer allgemeinen deutschen Synonymik"; there were at least seventeen editions up until the twentieth century. The thesaurus is not aimed at scholars and philologists but explicitly at a broader audience. Like similar works by Girard, Voltaire, d’Alembert and Joucourt in the French language, Blair in English and Sporon in Danish, Eberhard’s thesaurus is designed to assist everyone who 'intends to distinguish himself by a painstaking education to educate his understanding by means of language and to acquire the ability to express himself gently, correctly, and firmly' (Dictionary of Eighteenth-Century German Philosophers). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 6 parts in 3 volumes, large 8vo, contemporary half leather, smooth spines ruled gilt with contrasting labels, first two spines blemished, paper library shelfmarks on front boards, corners worn, all edges red, neat early library stamps on title versos, no inscriptions, closed tear to one leaf in first volume, light age-toning only, a very good set.

In der Jahr 1739. 68 pp. text and 10 engraved plates, including double-sheet frontispiece and 4 full-sheet and folding, woodcut armorial headpiece. Small folio, 320 x 205 mm, bound in contemporary sheep. In a half-morocco folding box. Vienna: Johann Peter von Ghelen, [1739]. |~||~||~||~||~||~| First Edition, a particularly handsome example of this rare genre. Shooting festivals originated in Germany and date back to the Middle Ages. The present commemoration of a 14-day rifle contest held for the citizens in Vienna in 1739 by Charles VI lists the participants and winners and illustrates the proceedings in engraved plates by Elias Schaffhauser after Franz Tobias Kollman, and by Andreas & Joseph Schmuzer. The large fold-out frontispiece shows the entire shooting field with participants on horseback, the Emperor in his chariot, a clown, a building filled with spectators, and Vienna in the background, with a wide sky dominating the scene. The three double-page plates depict the exhibition of the prizes; the emperor, accompanied by processions of officials, being greeted by the Mayor of Vienna, in an open gallery with the shooting field in the background; and the awarding of the prizes. The remaining plates reproduce seven emblematic targets, accompanied by explanatory text. Rare: Worldcat locates only three copies located in American institutions (National Gallery, Getty and NYPL, the latter apparently lacking the large folding frontispiece).

        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).

      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. Extremely detailed, showing land use, buildings and roads. Coat of arms above key.

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).

        Memoirs of the Royal Society;

      London - Printed by G. Smith 1739 - A very scarce and sought after book. Volumetwo only. Thirteen plates, twelve of which are folding. Benjamin Baddam (c16931740) was a printer and compiler of the Memoirs of the Royal Society. He compiled an abridgement of the Royal Society's Philosophical Transactions. It was printed for him between 1738 and 1744 by Godfrey Smith in ten volumes, with 131 folding plates drawn by G. Smith and engraved by James Hulett, under the title Memoirs of the Royal Society, being a new abridgment of the Philosophical Transactions for the years 1665 to 1735. Previous abridgements of the Philosophical Transactions had been carried out on a piecemeal basis, whereas Baddam's version provided continuity and uniformity for the first time. Condition: The boards are detached and the back board is missing. There is significant wear to the extremities, including bumping and rubbing with loss to the leather. Internally the pages are slightly browned with handling marks andsome small stains. There is the occasional very mild spotting. Overall the condition is fair externally and good internally.

(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.

(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.
