        La Buvette Des Chasseurs

      Moyreau, Paris 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.

        Accuraat geografisch kaart-boekje of zak-atlas van het keyzerryk en geheel Duytsland, de Oostenrykse Nederlanden, ...Haarlem, Bernardus Cleynhens, [ca. 1747?]. Small 8vo (16 x 10 cm). With 25 double-page engraved maps (2 overview maps), and an engraved plate with 8 scales, all hand-coloured, partly in outline. Half textured red cloth (ca. 1860?).

      Koeman I, Cle 1; STCN (2 copies); WorldCat (2 copies). A surprisingly rare pocket atlas illustrating the theatre of the "tegenwoordigen" (present) war, probably meaning the War of the Austrian Succession (1740-1748) but possibly the Seven Years' War (1756-1763). The title-page notes that it is suited for officers, travellers and lovers of geography to carry in a pocket. The text (in Dutch) gives a geographic description only of "Duytsland" (Germany), including Austria, Bohemia and a few other areas, whereas the maps also cover the Low Countries, the English Channel, northwest France and to the east as far as Warsaw, Krakow and Belgrade. The 23 detail maps were designed so that they could be assembled with the key map to make a single wall map, whose cartographic image would measure 53 x 90 cm.With a contemporary owner's, bookplate, embossed stamp and library labels. With the text leaves somewhat browned, not affecting the maps or the plate with scales, and the first 2 leaves slightly worn, but generally in good condition. A rare pocket atlas from the War of the Spanish Succession.

        Verklaring van de Geheele Heilige Schrift, door eenigen van de voornaamste Engelsche Godgeleerden.

      Amsterdam, Isaak Tirion, and Jacobus Loveringh 1740. 17 delen in 18 banden, Origineel Perkament met ribben en stempels, 4° (Fraaie set met de 6 kaarten en 2 tabellen. De Bijbelverklaring is genoemd naar onder meer Simon Patrick, een anglicaanse bisschop die leefde van 1626 tot 1707. Zijn werk vormde de basis voor de commentaren op Genesis tot en met Hooglied. De Nederlandse samenstellers hebben zijn werk aangevuld met de commentaren van Matthew Poole, een non-conformistisch predikant, die in de Engelse Kerk in Amsterdam ligt begraven. Allerlei geografische gegevens zijn ontleend aan de werken van rector en cartograaf Edward Wells. Ook maakten de samenstellers gebruik van de kanttekeningen in de Geneva Bible -de voorloper van de King James Bijbel- en commentaren van andere personen. Het Nieuwe Testament is grotendeels van de baptist John Gill, een autodidact, die goed thuis was in de grondtalen. Hij kan gezien worden als een voorloper van Joseph Charles Philpot. Deze verklaring is een uitstekende aanvulling op de Bijbelverklaring van Matthew Henry.) 17 volumes in 18 bindings, Contemporary blind-stamped Vellum with 6 raised bands, 4° (Beautiful set with the 6 maps and 2 tables. This Bible commentary is named after, among others, Simon Patrick, an Anglican bishop who lived from 1626 until 1707. His work formed the foundation for Genesis to Song of Solomon. The Dutch compilers have complemented his work with the commentaries of Matthew Poole, a non-conformistic minister, who is burried in the Engelse Kerk in Amsterdam. All kinds of geographic information is taken from the works of principal and cartographer Edward Wells. The compilers also used the marginal comments form the Geneva Bible -the predecessor of the King James Bible- and commentaries from other persons. The New Testament is mostly by the mennonite John Gill, an autodidact, who knew his way around in the original languages. He can be seen as the predecessor of Joseph Charles Philpot. This commentary is an excellent supplement on the Bible commentary by Matthew Henry.).

        Examen du livre intitulé réflexions politiques sur les finances et le commerce.

      The Hague: Vaillant & Nicolas Prevôt, 1740 - 2 volumes, octavo (157 × 91 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, brown morocco labels, spines lettered in gilt and gilt-tooled in compartments, red edges, marbled endpapers, armorial bookplates. Hinges lightly rubbed, otherwise an excellent, fresh, set. First edition. Pâris-Duverney and Deschamps refute Dutot's Réflexions politiques sur les finances et le commerce (1738) - a favourable consideration of John Law's paper currency system. Pâris-Duverney (the third of the four brothers Pâris, whose financial plans had been accepted under the Regency in 1716) had fallen into disgrace with the rise of Law, then risen again with Law's fall in 1720. In the Examen, he and Deschamps made a clear and tersely-argued refutation of Dutot and Law, warmly praising the Visa, and providing a detailed history of the Mississippi scheme and its collapse. "The different operations of this scheme are explained so fully, so clearly, and with so much order and distinctness, by Mr. Du Verney in his Examination of the Political Reflections upon Commerce and Finances of Mr. Du Tot, that I shall not give any account of them" (Adam Smith, Wealth of Nations, 1776, I, 385).

Editione hac Quarta accuratissime descriptus, tabulisque archetypis exornatus, et dissertationes anatomicae, Que nunc primum prodeunt, ad Colon intestionum, ad arteriam Magnam, ad Accessorius nervos, ad Oculos, ad Suffusiones, & ad Renum Succenturiatorum Excretios Ductus attinentes, Tabulis Itidem Illustratee. Omnia recensuit, & Auctoris Vitam, suasque ad Tractatum, & Dissertationes Epistolas addidit duodeviginti Joannes Baptista Morgagnus. Tomi Duo. - - Anton Maria Valsalva (1666-1723), "of Bologna, who was one of Malpighi's students at Padua and the teacher of Morgagni, wrote the first full account of the minute anatomy of the ear in his 'De Aure Humana Tractatus' ((Bolgna 1704) Treatise on the Human Ear), in which the whole structure of the ear is described and illustrated with many new discoveries, and the uses of all its parts are investigated; in which is inserted a new description and delineation of the uvula and pharynx. He was the first to define the ear's three regions-outer, middle, and inner-and to explain their relative functions. - - The 'Treatise' is arranged in six chapters. The first three are anatomic and deal with the parts of the ear; the last three are physiologic and explain the functions of these parts. The auricle and auditory meatus, the tympanum and middle ear, and the labyrinth and inner ear are discussed. Chapter 2 includes Valsalva's report, promised on the title page, of the musculature of the uvula and pharynx; these are depicted on separate plates. The ten illustrations are good line engravings, of which the most striking are those of the nerves and blood vessels of the outer ear, the carotid artery, the semicircular canals, and the structure of the whole ear. - - Valsalva described and named the eustachian tube, which connects the middle ear and the pharynx. His consideration of the eustachian tubes led to the "respiratory maneuver" named for him; if the tubes are patent and if the nose and mouth are closed, a forcible expiratory effort increases pressure on the tympanic membranes. Valsalva used this procedure to expel pus and foreign bodies from the middle ear. Since his time, the Valsalva maneuver has proved to be of value to the internist, the otologist, and the radiologist. In the section on the pharyngeal muscles, he detailed the dysphagia which has also been named for him. By the digital manipulation of "a kind of dislocation of the cartilaginous appendages of the hyoid bone," he relieved a woman who could not eat after a lump of beef had lodged in her throat." William R. Lefanu, Notable Medical Books from the Lilly Library (1976), p.101 - - Politzer, Hist. of otology, pp. 136 -143: 'The scientific value of this work is demonstrated by the fact that the anatomcial sections of all the otological treatises up to the 19th century are based on Valsalva's work, part of which remain valid even today. Morgagni's edition, Venice, 1740, also containes his anatomical letters. Valsalva mentions for the first time the small sebaceous glands ... in the skin of the auricle and compares them to analogous structures in other parts of the body, e.g. the nose. Valsalva's description of the Eustachian tube is classic, again demonstrating his masterful dissection technique. Valsalva was the first to observe the presence of a watery fluid in the labyrinth. Valsalva was the first to describe a muscular dilatator tubae that widens the Eustachian tube during the perception of sound... Valsalva was the first physician who inspected the tympanic membrane in living subjects.' It was Valsalva who first rationalized treatment in otology. - - This is also the first printing of Valsalva's other anatomical papers on the colon, arteries and nerves, the eyes, kidneys etc. They include useful contributions to anatomy and surgery, of which the best remembered is his delineation of the sinuses of the aorta, still called 'Valsalva's sinuses.' - - Morgagni, Valsalva's student , edited this Opera with elabortate commentary. He himself added his most important biography of Valsalva, and 22 anatomical letters, that are a commentary on the work and a vehicle for publishing his (Malgagni's) own discoveries. - - Die erste von zwei von Morgagni veranstalteten Gesamtausgabe mit der berühmten Monographie über das menschliche Ohr, dem "hervorragendsten bahnbrechenden Werk dieser Periode, von musterhafter einfacher Darstellung".

        Institutiones Chirurgicae. Quod in hac prima Editione Veneta.

      - Venedig, apud Franciscum Pitteri, 1740, 4°, (1), LXIV, 1122, (44) pp., mit gest. Portrait und 38 gefalt. gest. Tafeln, im Ledereinband der Zeit; ExLibris "Ex Biblithreca Laurentius Heisteri" eingehändiger Namenszug "L.Heisterus" auf Titel. Erste in Venedig gedruckte Auflage, zweite lateinische Ausgabe. ein vorzügliches Exemplar, mit besonders frischen Abzügen der Kupfer aus der Bibliothek des Verfassers, Lorzen Heister, mit dessen ExLibris und eigenhändigem Namenszug auf dem Titelblatt. - - "Zum Mittler wurde seine "Chirurgie", indem sie die klassischen medizinischen Kenntnisse, die bisher den Medizinern vorbehalten, den Chirurgen aber vorenthalten worden waren, einbezog und den chirurgischen Traktat aufgliederte in Natur der Krankheiten, Krankheitslokalisation und organische Auswirkungen, Krankheitserscheinungen, Verlauf und Prognose, Instrumentenlehre, Operationstaktik und -technik, Verbandslehre und postoperative medizinische Behandlung. Dementsprechend gliedert sich die "Chirurgie" in drei Teile, nämlich die Beschreibung der Aufgaben und des Wesens der Chirurgie überhaupt sowie der einzelnen Verletzungen und Krankheiten, z.B. "Von der Verrenckung des Schenckelbeins", "Von Heilung der Fistel", den zweiten, dem Umfange nach größten Teil mit der Beschreibung der chirurgischen Operationen, und einen dritten, kleineren Teil, betreffend die Bandagen und Verbände." - - "Die Beschreibungen in der "Chirurgie" sind nicht einfach übernommene Darstellungen, sondern beruhen gleichermaßen auf der Auswertung der zeitgenössischen Literatur wie auf eigenen Beobachtungen und Erfahrungen. Heister hat erstmals umfassend die Fachliteratur ausgewertet und damit auch den Anstoß zur Literatursammlung gegeben. Über seine eigene reichhaltige Bibliothek, die etwa 1700 Titel, meist in lateinischer Sprache, hauptsächlich aus dem 17. und 18. Jahrhundert, enthielt, verfaßte er ein 56 Druckseiten starkes Verzeichnis." - - Fast ein Jahrhundert später (1845) schrieb Dieffenbach in der Einleitung zu seiner "Operativen Chirurgie": "In Deutschland blieb die Chirurgie gegen die neuere Zeit hin . weit zurück. Heister aber erhob sie schnell durch seine eminenten Talente." Jürgen Probst, L. Heister, Unfallchirurgie 10 (1984), 1-8 (Nr. 1) - - 54 pp. are devoted to a surgical bibliography.

        The History of His Own Time

      London - Printed For The Editor 1740 - Two leather bound volumes with gilt titles to the spine. Matthew Prior (July 21, 1664 September 18, 1721) was an English poet and diplomat. When Queen Anne died and the Whigs regained power, Prior was impeached by Robert Walpole and kept in close custody for two years (17151717). In 1709, he had already published a collection of verse. During this imprisonment, maintaining his cheerful philosophy, he wrote his longest humorous poem, Alma; or, The Progress of the Mind. This, along with his most ambitious work, Solomon, and other Poems on several Occasions, was published by subscription in 1718. Prior's poems show considerable variety, a pleasant scholarship and great executive skill. The most ambitious, i. e. Solomon, and the paraphrase of The Nut-Brown Maid, are the least successful. But Alma, an admitted imitation of Samuel Butler, is a delightful piece of wayward easy humour, full of witty turns and well-remembered allusions, and Prior's mastery of the octo-syllabic couplet is greater than that of Jonathan Swift or Pope. His tales in rhyme, though often objectionable in their themes, are excellent specimens of narrative skill; and as an epigrammatist he is unrivalled in English. Condition: The bindings are tight and firm with all pages securely attached although the outer hinges are cracked on both volumes. There is some wear to the extremities including minor bumping to the corners, creasing to the spine and some slight rubbing to the leather. Internally the pages are clean and bright with the occasional handling mark and isolated spot. There are some water stains toseveral pages in Volume II. There are bookplates to the front pastedowns. Overall the volumes are in very good condition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Retour de Chasse et Curée

      Moyreau, Paris 1740 - Hand-coloured engraving on laid paper by Moyreau. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling, minor foxing, and mild rippling. A fine composition showing the hunting party returning from the hunt to refresh themselves and organize their spoils.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.

        Afrique

      Paris 1740 - This splendid hand-colored copperplate engraving depicting Africa is in excellent condition measuring 9 1/4” x 13 1/8”. The African countries and areas as known in the late 18th century are divided throughout the use of the vibrant outline colors yellow, teal and orange. French cartographer Nicolas de Fer (1646-1720) was a leader among cartographers and map publishers of the late 17th and early 18th centuries. At the young age of twelve he began an apprenticeship as an engraver, working for his father Antoine de Fer, a printer and publisher. With the death of his father in 1673, Nicolas took over the publishing house and created numerous atlases, prized for their original and decorative qualities and accurate publications. In 1691, de Fer became an official geographer of the French Daupin and in 1702 to the Duke of Anjor later to be the King of Spain.
