Lantaarens, en wat meer tot dit soort van bouwkunde behoort: ... Amsterdam, J.S. van Esveldt-Holtrop, [ca. 1810]. Large folio (49 x 35 cm). With title-page in red & black, with an engraved vignette on the title-page and 30 double-page engraved plates by Jan Schenk. 19th-century half-calf, with marbled sides.

      BAL 3929 (note); cf. Berlin Kat. 2253 (1739 ed.); STCN (1739 ed.); not in Fowler. Very rare second edition of this classic set of architectural construction drawings in 30 large double-page plates primarily showing staircases and their decoration, but with the last five plates covering skylights intended for stairwells, some in the form of elaborate cupolas. The plates show straight, spiral and more complicated staircases, with their geometrical constructions, as well as many elaborate decorative forms for the posts, railings, skylights, etc. The publisher of the undated plates-volume was active from 1793 to post-1825, but both the French "modern" types (perhaps from Gando) and the watermark of the preliminaries (Voorn 100) point to a date around 1810. The plates are printed on unwatermarked wove paper. The first endleaf has an 1825 presentation inscription from the board of the Genootschap Mathesis Scientiarum Genitria in Leiden to Johannes Holtz, who taught architectural drawing and mathematics at their school (it is signed by P. Koppeschaar and A. van de Snoek).A few plates with brown stains, mostly in the margins, small marginal tears (some repaired) or minor offsetting. A very good copy of Horst's famous staircase book.

        Le Siege de Calais

      The Hague: Jean Neaume, 1739 The Hague, A La Haye, chez Jean Neaume, 1739. Troisieme Edition [third edition]. All text in French. 12mo, 307 pp. Period mottled calf, spine tooled in gilt, morocco lettering piece, marbled endpapers red-stained page edges. Some peripheral wear, front pastedown with damage from removal of a bookplate, else near fine. In absolutely remarkable condition for a book in the later years of its third century. A historical romance by the feisty Mme. de Tencin - Mme. Claudine Alexandrine Guerin De Tencin. Disparaged by some during her lifetime and since, Mme de Tencin nonetheless insouciantly produced three romances, and later in life managed a...uhhh...salon...often visited by the leading thinkers in France at the time, Montesquieu, Fontenell, and Marivaux being among them. The "woman of intellect and letters but of unpleasant character" thereafter stood the test of time - most copies of this novel which survive are from an 1885 re-issue, more than 160 years after she originally penned it. The Oxford Companion of French Literature calls this title "an indifferent historical novel in which the simple narrative of Froissart is tricked out with episodes of modern gallantry." Sniff. Nonetheless, the second of the three successful and popular romances written by Tencin, an energetic, bright and assertive writer. L6

(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.

        Histoire de l'expedition de trois vaisseaux... aux Terres Australes

      The Hague: la Compagnie, 1739. Two volumes bound in one, small octavo, both titles in red and black, bound with both half-titles; contemporary blind-embossed vellum, manuscript label on spine. Roggeveen at Easter Island. A handsome copy of Roggeveen's voyage into the Pacific. 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. Roggeveen crossed the Pacific from the east at the head of a three-vessel expedition with largely commercial objectives. 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 5 April 1722 Roggeveen landed at a previously uncharted island which he named 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. Because he had sailed for the Dutch West India Company Roggeveen was temporarily imprisoned by the powerful Dutch East India Company in Batavia, but later released to complete 'one of the last of the great Dutch circumnavigations' (Howgego). Apart from a conspicuously rare pamphlet published in 1727, and the equally rare Dutch Tweejaarige reyze rondom de wereld of 1728, this was the first major notice of this important voyage, not only a substantial Pacific voyage in its own right, but one which provided a direct stimulus for the search for the Southern Continent. Behrens' account of the Roggeveen voyage was originally published in German in 1737, but this first French edition is generally preferred. It was likely translated and amended by Behrens himself, who travelled under Roggeveen as commander of marines, though some authorities have attributed the translation to De Brosses. Although Roggeveen's voyage failed in its primary objective, it represented an important achievement in terms of its own discoveries. The Behrens account had some effect on subsequent voyages, including providing 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 Moniments or Idols mentioned by the Authors of Roggeweins Voyage which left us no room to doubt but it was Easter Island…' (Beaglehole, Journals of Captain James Cook, II, p. 338).

FIRST EDITION 1739, translated by George Sale, 12mo, approximately 175 x 105 mm, 6 7 / 8 x 4 inches, some woodcut head - and tailpieces and initials, pages: (8), 300, + 4 pages of publisher's adverts, collation: (A)4, B - P12, O8, bound in full contemporary speckled sheep, rebacked to style, raised bands and previous gilt lettered morocco label, chipped. Corners just very slightly worn, B1 - E12 (page 96) appear to have been washed, F1 is lightly browned. A very good clean tight copy of a rare book. Our issue contains an Advertisement (to the reader) facing the title page which states that these translations were begun by George Sale, editor and translator of the Koran and "compleated by a Gentleman who resided in Turky near twenty years". A second issue of this book also published in 1739 by Wilcox does not contain this advertisement but instead a Dedication, signed J. Morgan, which states that though "The bookseller who purchased these loose papers [presumably Wilcox], fancies he has good grounds to believe they appertained to the late ingenious Mr. George Sale, .. yet not a syllable of this was his writing". Morgan claims responsibility for about a quarter of the work. See ESTC TT98736 and T147003. The 4 pages of publisher's adverts at rear are uncommon.

        The Tapestry Hangings of the House of Lords: Representing the several Engagements Between the English and Spanish Fleets. In the ever memorable Year MDLXXXVIII.

      1739 - London, John Pine, 1739. Later full calf gilt, marbled edges; engr. title, dedication, pp. (ii) (list of subscribers) + 24, engr. map, 10 maritime views, 10 charts printed in pairs, the views and charts printed in blue within black separately-printed decorative borders. A superb commemoration of the Spanish Armada of 1688. The book contains ten sea battle views drawn by Clement Lemprière after tapestries hanging in the House of Lords; and ten charts of the progress of the skirmishes drawn by Hubert-François Gravelot after Robert Adams, all engraved by John Pine. In 1591 Lord Howard of Effingham commissioned the Dutch marine painter Hendrik Cornelisz Vroom to design ten scenes of the Spanish Armada to be made into tapestry wall-hangings by François Spierinck of Delft. In 1616 the tapestries were bought by James I, who had them hung in the House of Lords, where they remained through Revolution and Rerstoration, only to be destroyed when they were destroyed when the Houses of Parliament burnt down in 1834. This left Pine?s book as the only record, so it is lucky that Pine worried that ''Time, or Accident, or moths may deface these valuable shadows'. The charts were copied from those of Robert Adam, engraved by Augustine Ryther and published in 1588. The text is an historical account of the Armada, a description of the plates and an explanation of the medals and other ornaments. MCC: 4.

        Haga Comitum, (Germ. Graven-Haag Gall. la Haye) se des ordinum Belgii foederati ichnographica.

      Nuremburg - This lovely map of the Hague includes a plan and view of the prominent Dutch city. Published circa 1739, the plan shows the city before it became the international and political hub it is today. Rather than the modern buildings that house the International Court of Justice and embassies, the significant buildings highlighted are mainly churches and Dutch governmental buildings, labeled according to keys at the sides of the map. Streets, gardens, and windmills are also rendered. Below the plan is a labeled panoramic view of the city with a windmill in the foreground. Behind it, the city recedes into the distances, punctuated by steeples, and the coats of arms of the Netherlands and the Hague float at either end. In the top left corner of the map is an elaborate title cartouche featuring Poseidon and several other figures. As was customary for Homann's maps and other Dutch maps of the mid-1800s, the plan has been colored and the cartouche and view left uncolored. Johann Baptist Homann (1664-1724) was a renowned German mapmaker of the late 17th and early 18th century who served as geographer to the Holy Roman Emperor. His business was carried on through the 18th century by the Homann Heirs, also prolific and popular mapmakers. Their continued success with maps such as this one proves the enduring value of Homann's work. Map. Engraving with original color wash. Image measures 20" x 22.25".

A second issue of this book also published in 1739 by Wilcox does not contain this advertisement but instead a Dedication, signed J. Morgan, which states that though "The bookseller who purchased these loose papers [presumably Wilcox], fancies he has good grounds to believe they appertained to the late ingenious Mr. George Sale, .. yet not a syllable of this was his writing". Morgan claims responsibility for about a quarter of the work. See ESTC TT98736 and T147003. The 4 pages of publisher's adverts at rear are uncommon.

        Traité de la matiere medicale, pour servir a la composition des remédes indiqués dans les Aphorismes. Par M. Herman Boerhaave (Treatments in medical matters, composed according to the remedies indicated in the Aphorisms of Mr. Herman Boerhaave).

      Chez Huart & Briasson, Paris 1739 - 2 blank leaves + TP + [iii]-xi = Preface + [xii]= Approbation + [1]-552 + [552a-552d] = Errata + 553-560 + [561]-[564] = Privilege du Roi + 1 blank leaf, 12mo. First Edition (Stoddard 9).First Edition of La Mettrie's Translation of "Treatments"In fact in his Traité de la matiere medicale, a companion piece to the Aphorismes, Boerhaave gave the exact recipes for remedies he had suggesting in the Aphorismes. He listed remedies in order of the gravity of the symptom they were to treat, from weakest to strongest" (Kathleen Wellman, La Mettrie: Medicine, Philosophy, and Enlightenment, 1992, p. 82).While La Mettrie was a devotee of Boerhaave, he was himself committed to an empirical, pragmatic and epistemologically more modest approach to medicine and he used this approach to dissent from his teacher. He was not principally motivated by scientific doctrines (materialism, or atomism, etc.) or by philosophic doctrines (sensualism and atheism), but rather by the desire for medical reform. All of his works - medical satires, medical treatises and translations along with his philosophical works - promote medical reform by undermining the medical establishment, by suggesting reforms to medical education and practice, and by enlightening the public. Contemporary full leather with five raised bands on the spine with gilt title and decorations. With a heavily overstruck two-line scription in contemporary ink on the title page to the right of the ornamental device in the center of the page. Otherwise, a tight, clean and very well preserved copy. ADDITIONAL PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. [Attributes: First Edition]

        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. Levé et dessiné par Louis Bretz, gravé par Claude Lucas et écrit par Aubin. ?

      In folio (mm. 565x450), 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 800 x 515 mm.), accompagnata da 1 tavola con l?intera area (inc. al tratto) che serve da Indice (840 x 640 mm.). Il titolo è inciso al centro di due tavole unite (1600 x 540 mm.). 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. .

Después de una expedición contra Génova (1743), una escuadra española de 15 navíos al mando de Juan José Navarro entró en Tolón, donde quedó bloqueada por la inglesa del almirante Matthews. Navarro con 12 navíos salió de puerto el 19 de febrero de 1744, en compañía del almirante francés Court de La Bruyère al mando de 16 navíos y tres fragatas, que tenía la misión de proteger a los españoles y no combatir a no ser atacados. El 22 de febrero se encontraron con la escuadra inglesa del almirante Thomas Matthews al mando de 32 navíos, quedando ambas flotas en líneas paralelas a lo largo del cabo Sicié. Al mediodía, la vanguardia y centro británicos cayeron sobre la retaguardia combinada, compuesta exclusivamente por la división española. Navarro, a bordo del Real Felipe, de 114 cañones, apoyado por otros seis navíos españoles, se vio atacado por 12 enemigos, de ellos tres de tres puentes, entablándose un furioso combate, en el cual resaltó la defensa del insignia español. Los británicos tuvieron 4 navíos desarbolados y muy dañados, y los españoles dos desarbolados y acribillados, el Real Felipe y el Constante, y uno apresado, el Poder, que luego fue represado e incendiado por haber quedado inútil. Al aproximarse la escuadra francesa se retiró la británica y Navarro pudo alcanzar el puerto de Cartagena con sus navíos, que era lo que pretendía. Por esta acción el general español obtuvo el título de marqués de la Victoria.En el catálogo del Museo Naval estos seis grabados están referenciados con los números 4750,4751,4752,4753,4754 y 4755.
