      London: printed and sold by J. Applebee. 1740. 8vo., (4) + 93 + (3)pp., including a final advertisement leaf (G8), title-page rather dust-soiled, in 19th century half calf over marbled boards, spine lettered in gilt, joints worn or cracked, but a good, crisp, copy, sometime in the library of the Los Angeles Board of Law> (bookplate on pastedown and faint inkstamp on covers). First edition and apparently rare. (ESTC finds copies only at BL + Harvard + Illinois). A veritable saga of crime, debauchery, escape, gambling, and adventures at home and abroad. Langley was finally apprehended for a highway robbery, a bungled job which netted him a mere three farthings. He was sentenced to death but the sentence was immediately commuted to transportation for seven years and he was eventually transported in December 1740.

The chapters on algebra introduce the idea of an equation and how real life problems can be reduced to equations, how to solve quadratic equations and other topics such as magic squares are studied.

Zeitgenössischer Pergamentband, auf 4 Bünden geheftet, schöner Rotschnitt. Berühmteste Entscheidungssammlung im 18. Jahrhundert, aus der Bibliothek des Juristen Gerhard von Beseler stammend. Mit einem Curriculum vitae Mevii (Mevius, 1609-1670, war Vizepräsident des Obergerichts zu Wismar). Vorgebunden die berühmte Abhandlung des bedeutendsten protestantischen Kirchenrechtlers Boehmer über die Brauchbarkeit der Entscheidungssammlungen der Rota Romana: Proloquium de collectionibus usu et autoritate Decisionum, praecipuae Rotae Romanae. Ende des 17. Jahrhunderts nahm diese Entscheidungssammlung grossen Einfluss auf die Rechtsprechung der nord- und mitteldeutschen Gerichte. Dem Band von Mevius fehlte aber die Anbindung an den europäischen Raum, also zum Geltungsbereich des Jus Commune. Der Band ist zwar äusserlich in 9 Bücher geordnet, dies ist aber keine Systematik, sondern entspricht der chronologischen Ordnung des Ersterscheinens der einzelnen Bände. Das mittlerweile vom Jus Romanum beseelte juristische Europa brauchte Ordnungskriterien, der Ordo iuris wurde hier in dem Pandektensystem gesehen. Zu einer Gesamtordnung hatte niemand den Mut oder die Zeit oder das Geld, also wurde ein Register nach der Pandektensystematik angelegt, verbunden mit der Hoffnung, europäische Verbreitung zu erlangen.

        HWV 319-330]. Twelve Grand Concertos in Seven Parts for Four Violins, a Tenor Violin, a Violoncello with a Through Bass for the Harpsicord. No. 670. [Parts]

      Publish'd by the Author; Printed for and Sold by Iohn Walsh [ca 1740], London - First Edition. Smith I p. 222. HWV p. 74. BUC p. 441. RISM H & HH1254."The 12 concerti grossi or ‘Grand Concertos’ written in a burst of creative energy in September and October 1739 were consciously conceived as an integral set, clearly in emulation (though not imitation) of Corelli’s famous set with the same opus number and the same scoring for a concertino of two violins and cello with four-part ripieno strings and continuo. (Handel later added oboe parts to nos.1, 2, 5 and 6, mostly doubling the ripieno violins.) Each concerto has an individual form. Many movements blend inextricably the majesty of the French manner with italianate fluency, and a prodigious stream of invention coupled with intensity of feeling is maintained thoughout the set. The fact that earlier material is sometimes drawn upon (three of the concertos are based on the overture to the Ode for St Cecilia’s Day and the two ‘Second Set’ organ concertos) does not diminish the achievement, since the adapations are fascinating and often radical in themselves, and the recognition that several thematic elements are derived from Scarlatti’s Essercizi simply leads to admiration of the way Handel transforms them and uses them to build larger structures. The Polonaise in no.3 and the grave Musette of no.6 are haunting amplifications of standard dance forms. The set is an apotheosis of the Baroque concerto, to be set alongside the Brandenburg Concertos of Bach, as well as an epitome of Handel’s art, drawing on many sources and influences and uniting them in a style uniquely his own." Anthony Hicks in Grove Music Online.A complete set. An attractive exemplar of one of Handel's most masterful works, published by the composer. Folio. 7 parts, uniformly bound in 19th-century quarter black morocco with dark blue textured cloth boards with embossed rules, titling and rules gilt to spine, top edge gilt, marbled endpapers.Violino primo concertino: 1f.

Violoncello part with numerous contemporary manuscript figures and accidentals in ink throughout.The privilege to Chinzer seems to have been bound in at a later date and not part of the original publication. In addition, it suggests that Chinzer, an Italian trumpeter, impresario, and composer, lived at least until 1750-1751. Binding slightly worn and soiled; Violino primo concertino part partially split at upper joint. Minor soiling, mostly to titles and blank margins; occasional light wear, show-through, small stains, and very light foxing (to Viola and Violoncello parts); small tear to title of Basso continuo, not affecting text.

T. stärker berieben und bestossen); Hinterer Deckel von Bd. 1 mit deutlicher Wurmspur. - „Neben seinen 1735 erschienenen Memoiren, mit pikanten Details gewürzte Lebenserinnerungen eines Zweiunddreissigjährigen, begründen die zunächst in vierzehntäglichen Fortsetzungen (insges. 140 Lieferungen umfassenden) und bald darauf in Buchform erschienenen fiktiven Briefwechsel zwischen verschiedene europäische Länder durchstreifenden jüdischen oder chinesischen Reisenden d’Argens' Ruhm.

        La Buvette Des Chasseurs

      Paris: Moyreau, 1740. Hand-coloured engraving on laid paper by Moyreau. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling and minor foxing, mild rippling, and slight discolouration of the paper due to age. A fine composition showing the hunting party refreshing themselves before embarking on the hunt. This beautifully coloured print is one of many engravings Jean Moyreau (1690-1762) made of Wouwerman's paintings. 'Born into a family of Dutch artists in Haarlem in 1619, the prolific draughtsman and painter Philips Wouwerman was primarily renowned for his lively battle and hunting scenes. After an early elementary introduction to the art of painting by his father, Paulus Joostens, he trained with the landscape painter Jan Wynants (1620-1679) and briefly worked in the Hamburg studio of the history painter Everard Decker (d. 1647) around 1638. Wouwerman later returned to Haarlem, where he joined the Guild of St. Luke, which later elected him to the office of vinder in 1646. His elegantly rendered, distinctive works, which are characterized by their luminous colour and detailed, animated treatment of figures and landscape alike, were extremely popular in the seventeenth century as well as the nineteenth century, during which they were zealously collected. Among his varied and substantial repertoire of subjects, which included military and battle scenes, landscapes, travellers, animals and genre subjects, Wouwerman favored his hunting scenes. Cf. Benezit, Dictionnaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs, et Graveurs , vol 14, p. 723.

        Basis Geographiae Recentioris Astronomica

      Nuremburg: Homann, Johann Baptist. unbound. Map. Engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 19" x 22.5". This scarce circa 1740 map by Johan Baptist Homann and Johann Gabriel Dopplemayr depicts the world in hemispherical projection. The map is surrounded by beautiful illustrations and tables. Depicts the Western Hemisphere and the Eastern Hemisphere with continents outlined in color and major cities, especially in Europe, identified. The map notes several interesting features appearing in maps from this period. California, is depicted an island and New Zealand is shown without a eastern coastline. In the Eastern Hemisphere, Japan appears twice on the map with a note below one attributing it to an error by Sanson who had placed it too far east. The Caspian Sea appears in its embryonic state and the western coastlines of New Guinea and Australia are joined to depict a single landmass. Much of the eastern and southern shores of Australia were unexplored at the time this map was issued, which is reflected here.The map is based on astronomical observations by prominent astronomers with coordinates established for 138 places, all of which are noted in tables above and below the map proper. Elaborately engraved illustrations surround the hemispheres with cherubs using various instruments to make astronomical observations.The map is in good condition with some toning and discoloration along the edges and the centerfold. Creases and wear along centerfold repaired on verso. Discoloration from framing tape along the top borders.Johann Baptist Homann (1664-1724) was a renowned German mapmaker of the late 17th and early 18th century, including being geographer to the Holy Roman Emperor. His business was carried on through the 18th century by the Homann Heirs, also prolific and popular mapmakers.Johann Gabriel Doppelmayr (1677-1750) was a German mathematician, astronomer and cartographer. He traveled throughout Europe studying in Halle, Utrecht, Leiden, Oxford and London. He met J. B. Homann when he returned to Nuremburg and with him went on to publish several important astronomical maps and atlases. Their most elaborate work together was the "Atlas Coelestis". The Lunar crater 'Doppelmayr' and a minor planetoid are named in his honor. This world map, considered one of the most interesting world maps of the 18th century is a beautiful example of decorative cartography and a great example of their work.

        [Op. 1]. Sei Sonata [!Sonate] á violino solo E Basso sia [!ossia] cimbalo Dedicate á s. A. Sma. Il Principe Di Carignano... Opera prima. Musical manuscript score

      [ca. 1740]. Folio (350 x 250 mm). Green cloth-backed marbled boards with titling gilt to spine. 28 pp. Notated in brown ink on 16-stave paper, with a watermark featuring a bunch of grapes. Includes elaborate bass figures. First sonata with caption title "Sonata 1er[!]." Sonata IIa begins on third staff of f. 4r.; "false start," also with heading "Sonata IIa" and apparently identical with the main text, to first two staves and pasted over; "Sonata iida" in ink to overpaste in a different hand. Some additional overpaste corrections. Some penciled slurs to slow movement of Sonata IIa; pagination and other annotations in pencil in a modern hand. Binding very slightly worn and rubbed. Closely trimmed, with slight loss to music and to headings of movements. . Published in 1739 as Sei Sonate by Carlo and Giovanni Tessarini in Urbino, Italy (RISM C781; 1 copy, at the Bibliothèque nationale, Paris) and in the same year by Mlle. Monnet, Mme, Boivin, and Le Clerc (RISM C780; 5 copies, all in Europe). Manuscript copies of the third movement of Sonata no. 1 and the first movement of Sonata IV at the Henry Watson Music Library, Manchester, U.K. (RISM 806550137 and 806550138). "[Canavas] was an Italian violinist and composer... The date of his arrival in Paris cannot be determined with certainty... The first unequivocal reference to him is the privilege of 1739, connected with the publication of his first set of violin sonatas in Paris in the same year; the sonatas had just been published in Urbino, so it is possible that he only then arrived in Paris... His two sets of violin sonatas, separated by 24 years, are perhaps less interesting in themselves than as an indication of changing styles in the mid-18th century." Michelle Fillion in Grove Music Online.

        Dictionnaire Historique et Critique. Cinquime dition...

      Amsterdam, Leiden, The Hague, Utrecht, 1740. Four folio volumes. The editors of "Printing and the Mind of Man" say, of Bayle and his Dictionnaire (no. 155): "Bayle, a Protestant philosopher, wrote his ?Historical and Critical Encyclopedia? in his voluntary exile in Rotterdam as an anti-clerical counterblast to Morri?s work, in order, as he put it, ?to rectify Morri?s mistakes and fill the gaps.? Bayle championed reason against belief, philosophy against religion, tolerance against superstition. In a seemingly detached way he posed arguments and counter-arguments side by side, restricting his most daring insinuations to the renvois (references) which supplemented the actual entries. For over half a century, until publication of the Encyclopdie, Bayle?s Dictionnaire dominated enlightened thinking in every part of Europe." With its four-volume Supplment: Chauffepr, Jacques George de, 1702-1740. Nouveau Dictionnaire Historique et Critique pour Servir de Supplment ou de Continuation au Dictionnaire Historique et Critique de Mr. Pierre Bayle... Amsterdam & La Haye, 1750-1756. Four folio volumes; first edition. Chauffepr, a Protestant philosopher and French exile in Holland much like Bayle, extended the Dictionnaire by adding material, some translated from English, some composed by himself. There are many more entries on scientists-- Leipniz, Mersenne, Galileo, Gallois. While not of the revolutionary importance of Bayle, Chauffepr reflects awareness of the importance of science, particularly English science, during the early eighteenth century. For Chauffepr see Cioranescu 18845. NUC 104: 658. These eight volumes, former property of the Providence Public Library, are handsomely rebound with red leather spines; condition of the interior is superb. stock#OB450 extra-oversize.

        A New Map of Great Britain

      London: Thomas Bowles, J. Bowles & John King, 1740. Engraved with full, period colouring, two sheets joined, both sheets with creases center folds, Several long, not obtrusive creases toward bottom of map. Full contemporary colour example of Moll's fine map of the recently conjoined states of England, Scotland and Wales: Great Britain This great map of the recently united Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland) of 1707, exemplifies Moll's particular virtues as a mapmaker. It is drawn on a large scale and includes major roads with mileage between points. Never word shy, Moll includes a general outline of the method and mechanics of representation of the new Union, and in a separate place, a brief account of his reasons for making the map and of its unique features. There is an inset map of the Shetland Islands. The present map was part of Herman Moll's magnificent folio work, a New and Compleat Atlas. Moll was the most important cartographer working in London during his era, a career that spanned over fifty years. His origins have been a source of great scholarly debate; however, the prevailing opinion suggests that he hailed from the Hanseatic port city of Bremen, Germany. Joining a number of his countrymen, he fled the turmoil of the Scanian Wars for London, and in 1678 is first recorded as working there as an engraver for Moses Pitt on the production of the English Atlas. It was not long before Moll found himself as a charter member of London's most interesting social circle, which congregated at Jonathan's Coffee House at Number 20 Exchange Alley, Cornhill. It was at this establishment that speculators met to trade equities (most notoriously South Sea Company shares). Moll's coffeehouse circle included the scientist Robert Hooke, the archaeologist William Stuckley, the authors Jonathan Swift and Daniel Defoe, and the intellectually-gifted pirates William Dampier, Woodes Rogers and William Hacke. From these friends, Moll gained a great deal of privileged information that was later conveyed in his cartographic works, some appearing in the works of these same figures. Moll was highly astute, both politically and commercially, and he was consistently able to craft maps and atlases that appealed to the particular fancy of wealthy individual patrons, as well as the popular trends of the day. In many cases, his works are amongst the very finest maps of their subjects ever created with toponymy in the English language. Furthermore, Moll is one of the few mapmakers who merits the term "Innovative". English mapmakers prior to Moll tried to imitate Dutch maps as nearly as possible, whereas Moll seems to have largely disregarded Dutch precedents. Removing all the Baroque stylistic elements, Moll replaced decoration with things that interested him about the places depicted, either pictorially or verbally. And he was right to do so. His notes and illustrations are more interesting than the putti and mythical gods of the late Dutch maps. Dictionary of National Biography.

        Grand Theatre de la Guerre en Amerique Suivant les Plus Novelles observations des Espagnols, Anglois, Francois & Hollandois mis au jour par R. & I. Ottens

      [Amsterdam]: R. & J. Ottens, 1740. Engraved map, with 8 inset maps, on 6 joined sheets, fine contemporary hand-colouring. Very good condition apart from expert repairs to splits at folds and creases where the map was folded. A spectacular large-scale map of the Gulf of Mexico from Florida to Guiana, the West Indies, and whole of Central America: a graphic reminder of the War of Jenkins' Ear. As its title suggests, this spectacular map depicts the full American theatre of the war with eight insets showing the principal ports of the region: 1) A Draught of St. Augustin and its Harbour; 2) La Havane; 3) Plan de la Ville Espagnole de S. Domingue; 4) Harbourg [sic.] de Porto Bello; 5) Plan de la Baye de Carthagena; 6) Nouvelle Carte de L'Isle de Curacao; 7) Nouveau Plan du Port et de la Ville d'Acapulco; 8) Plan de la Vera-Cruz. The inset of the harbour of Porto Bello is after Popple and the chart of St. Augustine is copied from Moll's West Indies. The War of Jenkins' Ear (1739-1742) took its name from Robert Jenkins, captain of the "Rebecca", who claimed that the Spanish had cut off his ear in 1731. Public opinion forced Robert Walpole's government to declare war on 23 October 1739, after Jenkins ear was produced, in a moment of high drama during a debate in the House of Commons. A year later the war merged into the War of the Austrian Succession. The stated reason for the war was the supposed Spanish mistreatment of English seamen; the war, however, is seen as resulting from the commercial rivalry between the Spanish and British in the Caribbean basin. The publishing history of the map is complicated by the fact that it appears to have been issued as the sheets were completed presumably in a rush by the publishers to capitalise on the interest in the region. The two middle sheets were made available on their own (under the title Nova Isthmi Americani, qui et Panamiensis item Dariensis, Tabula) and advertised by Reinier and Joshua Ottens in the Amsterdamsche Courant on May 12, 1740. The next two sheets were first advertised on 6 October 1740. By 10 June 1741, the full six sheets were available: they were advertised at a price of 48 stuyvers (see Van der Krogt, 'Advertenties').
