        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. 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).Borba de Moraes, 95; Hill, 99; James Ford Bell, B149; Kroepelien, 70; O'Reilly-Reitman, 230; Sabin, 4379; Taylor, 77; Tiele, 933n.

        New Principles of Gardening: or, the laying out and planting parterres, groves, wildernesses, labyrinths, avenues, parks, &c. ... with experimental directions for raising the several kinds of fruit-trees, forest-trees, ever-greens and flowering-shrubs with which gardens are adorn'd ... Second Edition

      London: printed for A. Bettesworth and C. Hitch ... [and others], 1739. Quarto. (9 5/8 x 7 1/2 inches). 28 folding engraved plates by Thomas Bowles and David Lockley after B. and T. Langley. Contemporary calf, covers bordered with a gilt double fillet, rebacked with the spine with raised bands in six compartments, lettered in the second, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt, endpapers renewed. An important and influential work on landscape gardening. Langley was an early champion of the freer style of landscaping which was to dominate landscape and garden design in the 18th century. According to Blanche Henrey, Langley's ideas were probably influenced by his contact with Charles Bridgeman, Alexander Pope and William Kent, and she goes on to note: "In the introduction [to the present work] Langley declares that there is nothing 'more shocking than a stiff regular garden; where after we have seen one quarter thereof, the very same is repeated in all the remaining parts'. He believed that a garden should consist of what he calls 'regular irregularities'. For instance, groves must not be planted like orchards 'with their trees in straight lines ranging every way, but in a rural manner, as if they had receiv'd their situation from nature itself'. Langley stipulated that views should be as extensive as possible and he is much in favour of ha- ha's ... Langley, like Switzer, decried the art of topiary and cut parterres, and encouraged meandering paths, and the use of fine trees for shade. New principles of gardening contains descriptions of the principles of geometry as applied to garden design, and rules concerning the situation and disposition of gardens in a rural manner. There are directions concerning the culture of fruit trees, forest trees, and shrubs, and there are also details concerning the names, medicinal properties, and culture of the plants of the kitchen and physic gardens. The illustrations include geometrical diagrams, garden plans, and designs for ruins suitable for the termination of walks" (Henrey, British Botanical and Horticultural Literature before 1800, II, p 499). The present second edition, composed of sheets of the first edition with a cancel title, is quite scarce. Bradley Bibliography III, p.108; Harvard. Catalogue of the Library of the Arnold Arboretum p.411; Hunt II, 472; Henrey III, 927; Nissen BBI 1136.

        HISTOIRE DU SYSTEME DES FINANCES SOUS LA MINORITE DE LOUIS XV

      1739. Fine. [HAUTCHAMP, Barthelemy Marmont du]. HISTOIRE DU SYSTEME DES FINANCES SOUS LA MINORITE DE LOUIS XV pendant les annees 1719 & 1720, Precedee d'un Abrege de la Vie du Duc Regent, & du Sr. Law. The Hague, Pierre de Hondt, 1739. Six 12mo volumes in three. 204[2]312; [2]208,[4]286pp.+[1]ff; [xiv]294[xvii]246pp. Titles in red and black. Tipped in is a fine satirical engraving of a street vendor with a huge assemblage of varied merchandise, which was publicly circulated in derision of monopolies. The Regent (the Duke of Orleans), concerned about the economic state of France, allowed a Scottish financier named John Law to open the Banque Generale (later the Banque Royale) and issue paper currency, new to France. Law created the Compagnie d'Occident, which controlled all trade and financial dealings in the extensive French Holdings along the Mississippi, and later extended to Africa, China, and the East Indies. He purchased the Banque Royale, and became Comptroller of all France's finances. The collapse of the company, due to inflation and excessive stock issues, was disastrous for the French, rich and poor. This detailed contemporary account includes two volumes of relevant documents: letters of patent, arrests, royal decrees, etc. Some slits to folding chart in Vol. 6, and a few marginalia, otherwise internally fine. Leather binding of the period, worn and dried, with externally cracked hinges and some spine losses. Library markings. Needs rebinding.

      [Paris]: Jacques Guerin, [1739].. 18pp. Quarto. In plain blue contemporary boards. Occasional light dampstaining. A very good copy. In a half morocco box. 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 FRANÇAISE 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). Extremely rare, European Americana locates copies (with a variant imprint) only at LC and JCB. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 739/24 (different publisher). SABIN 4556 (note).

        Le antichità d'Aquileja profane e sacre, per la maggior parte finora inedite, raccolte, disegnate, ed illustrate da Giandomenico Bertoli de' signori di Bribir, canonico d'Aquileja

      IN VENEZIA: PRESSO GIAMBATISTA ALBRIZZI, 1739 1739 In Venezia: presso Giambatista Albrizzi, 1739 In-folio (4) (1) c. (antiporta) (16) 444 (36). Numerose incisioni nel testo. Marca tipografica calcografica al frontespizio disegnata dal Piazzetta ed incisa da Giovanni Cattini. Frontespizio in rosso e nero. Antiporta incisa da Francesco Zucchi su disegno di Daniele Antonio Bertoli. Tre testate incise anonime e disegnate da G.Piazzetta, tre finalini, di cui uno inciso da Felicita Sartori, 207 incisioni nel testo, disegnate dall'autore e intagliate da Giuseppe Petrini, rappresentanti iscrizioni, statue e monumenti lapidei rinvenuti ad Aquileia e descritti nel volume. Cartoncino rustico. Bellissimo esemplare. Gian Domenico Bertoli (1676-1763) discendente da una importante famiglia sempre legata alla Chiesa di Aquileia, studiosissimo e colto, dopo aver compiuto studi di grammatica, retorica, poesia e filosofia, nel 1700 ricevette gli ordini sacri e divenne subito coadiutore dello zio Gio Daniele nella chiesa patriarcale di Aquileia. E' proprio ad Aquileia che Gian Domenico deve la sua fama in quanto per lunghi anni si dedicò a notevoli studi storici e archeologici. Il volume rappresenta una delle più belle sinergie tra il nuovo gusto per l'antiquaria, madre della futura archeologia scientifica, e l'arte tipografica veneziana, che avvalendosi dei suoi grandi artisti settecenteschi, produrrà nel corso del secolo tra i più eleganti volumi della storia della stampa. Catalogo Pinelli del 1787-Tomo V-Antiquaria N 3557. Graesse p 351. Cicognara 3954. De Grassi p 175.

        HISTOIRE DU SYSTEME DES FINANCES SOUS LA MINORITE DE LOUIS XV

      1739. Fine. [HAUTCHAMP, Barthelemy Marmont du]. HISTOIRE DU SYSTEME DES FINANCES SOUS LA MINORITE DE LOUIS XV pendant les annees 1719 & 1720, Precedee d'un Abrege de la Vie du Duc Regent, & du Sr. Law. The Hague, Pierre de Hondt, 1739. Six 12mo volumes in three. 204[2]312; [2]208,[4]286pp.+[1]ff; [xiv]294[xvii]246pp. Titles in red and black. Tipped in is a fine satirical engraving of a street vendor with a huge assemblage of varied merchandise, which was publicly circulated in derision of monopolies. The Regent (the Duke of Orleans), concerned about the economic state of France, allowed a Scottish financier named John Law to open the Banque Generale (later the Banque Royale) and issue paper currency, new to France. Law created the Compagnie d'Occident, which controlled all trade and financial dealings in the extensive French Holdings along the Mississippi, and later extended to Africa, China, and the East Indies. He purchased the Banque Royale, and became Comptroller of all France's finances. The collapse of the company, due to inflation and excessive stock issues, was disastrous for the French, rich and poor. This detailed contemporary account includes two volumes of relevant documents: letters of patent, arrests, royal decrees, etc. Some slits to folding chart in Vol. 6, and a few marginalia, otherwise internally fine. Leather binding of the period, worn and dried, with externally cracked hinges and some spine losses. Library markings. Needs rebinding.

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

      London: John Pine, 24 June 1739. Engraved plate printed in blue. Very good condition apart from a few tiny tears and small losses at the extreme edges. 14 5/8 x 23 5/8 inches. 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.

Originally by the author intended to be volume one of three, but the other two volumes never appeared.The city of Aquileja was founded as a Roman colony in 181 BC. Because of it being located where the trade routes from Italy, the East, and the countries beneath the Alps met, Aquileja became of great military and commercial importance. In the 4th century it was usually the seat of the reigning emperors. Bertoli (1676 - 1759), also called l'abbé Jean-Dominique, was an Italian literary and antiques-collector. This is his only work.
