        Beatae Mariae Virginis Officium.

      Venetiis, apus Jo. Baptistam Pasquali, 1740.In-16° (132x88mm), pp. (37), 427, (5), (2) bianche, bellissima legatura coeva di manifattura veneziana in p. pelle marrone con ricchissimi decori in oro ai piatti e al dorso ai piccoli ferri. Tagli dorati, unghie decorate in oro, risguardi marmorizzati policromi. Antiporta e 15 altre tavv. f.t. nonché 20 finalini, il tutto superbamente inciso in rame da Marco Alvise Pitteri (1702-1786) su disegni di Giovanni Battista Piazzetta. Una traccia di scotch al margine interno dell'antiporta. Bellissimo esemplare. Eccezionale ufficio della Vergine illustrato dal Piazzetta, fra i più splendidi libri figurati del Settecento veneziano. "Il gioiello più gentile del bibliopola Pasquali è l'Officium Beatae Mariae Virgins stampato nel 1740 per incarico del ricco negoziante Caime che il libretto ha fatto imprimere in segno di devota gratitudine verso la Regina Celeste alla quale di tanti benefici si confessa debitore. Il libretto è prezioso sotto ogni aspetto, essendo il risultato dell'armonica collaborazione di Giovanni Battista Piazzetta e di Marco Pitteri, due artisti che in quel momento sono i più perfetti rappresentanti della pittura e dell'incisione veneziana. Ben trentasette sono i disegni di G.B. Piazzetta inclusi nelle pagine che Angela Baroni labore improbo, precisa e ammirevole, scolpì ad una ad una. Come sempre il vivace pittore è prodigo di audaci scorci, di ardite luminosità e di quella sensibilità psicologica che fa di lui il pittore più religioso di Venezia, come appare evidente dalle tavole della Cena degli Apostoli e di Re David. Marco Pitteri con questa traduzione fedele ed amorosa di originali tanto difficili da interpretare, inizia quella felice collaborazione con il Piazzetta che solo la morte poteva spezzare quattordici anni più tardi. La forma e il pensiero del pittore nel rievocare gli episodi della vita della Madre di Dio sono fedelmente interpretati; la delicatezza di taglio giustifica in pieno l'accuratissima diligentia lodata dall'editore? La raccolta dei rami dell'Officium Beatae Mariae Virgins deve in seguito essere passata in possesso di Giuseppe Remondini, e il graziosissimo libretto ebbe una larghissima diffusione grazie l'accorta intraprendenza del valoroso bassanese che nel catalogo edito nel 1761, lo ricorda per ben sei volte, in edizioni in 16 e in 32?" (G. Morazzoni, Il libro illustrato veneziano del Settecento, pp. 115-116).Morazzoni, op. cit., p. 215. T. Gasparrini Leporace, Il libro illustrato nel Settecento a Venezia, n. 56.

        Spiegazioni di due antiche mazze di ferro ritrovate in Messina nell'anno MDCCXXXIII, scritte dal Naufragante e dall'Ardito, Accademici della Peloritana Accademia de' Pericolanti. Con le opposizioni e note del Minacciato, del Timido e del Recuperato?

      Francesco Pitteri (ma Antonio Lazzari) 1740 In folio (mm. 348x247); pagg. (16), 283, con 28 incisioni in rame a piena pagina di cui 26 fuori testo e 3 ripiegate più volte. Nota di possesso manoscritta al frontespizio impresso a caratteri rossi e neri, 8 grandi vignette incise nel testo. Mezza pergamena con angoli del XIX secolo, tassello in marocchino nocciola con titolo impresso in oro al dorso. Prima edizione di uno dei più importanti libri figurati del Settecento siciliano. E' curioso notare come il frontespizio rechi come luogo di stampa Venezia (Pitteri editore), mentre nel colophon si dichiara che il libro fu stampato a Messina presso la Stamperia Accademica del Lazzari. L'opera trae origine dal ritrovamento di due mazze antiche, le quali recavano un'incisione che menzionava una lettera della Vergine indirizzata ai Messinesi. La vicenda scatenò subito una grande controversia sull'autenticità della lettera, tanto che il Senato di Messina chiese ai membri dell'Accademia cittadina dei Pericolanti di esporre una loro opinione. Gli Accademici si schierarono sui due opposti fronti, da una parte gli autori Quingles e Aglioti con gli pseudonimi di Naufragante e Ardito, dall'altra Giovanni e Francesco Natoli e Ignazio Cesareo con i nomi Minacciato, Timido e Recuperato. Le tavole illustrano in buona parte l'incisione delle mazze, stemmi, medaglie, corone, armature e iscrizioni; tra tutte spicca una bellissima veduta della città di messina (mm. 515x350) incisa in rame da Antonio Gaetano su disegno di Raimondo de Leonardo.Esemplare molto elegante e marginoso, stampato su carta forte ma mancante dell'antiporta. Oltre a quest'ultimo, gli unici difetti sono fioriture della carta, piccoli forellini di tarlo marginali alla prima carta e alle carte A1 e **4; forellino e sporco superficiale alla carta V1; strappi restaurati al margine superiore delle prime due carte, piccolo tassello di rinforzo al dorso.

      The Hague, J. Neaulme, 1740. Two parts in one volume. 4to (254 x 195 mm). pp. 16, 459; 66 [recte 74]. Contemporary mottled calf, spine in 6 compartments, richly decorated with red gilt lettered label (foot of frontcover hinge splitting). First edition of this important early botanical bibliography. Séguier's work is divided into three sections, devoted respectively to floras, medical botany, and horticultural works. Full transcriptions of the title pages are given, along with place of publication, publisher, size, and occasionally notes on contents and a note on the library consulted. Periodical publications are also included, and extensive side notes detail reviews, critical commentaries, etc. 'The coverage of the book is excellent, due to the fact that Séguier saw an unusual number of libraries on his European tour. He furthermore consulted as many catalogues of private libraries as possible. With the major Paris and London libraries accounted for, with the information obtained from Gronovius in Holland, and his careful scanning of the literature, Séguier achieved a very high degree of coverage' (Stafleu). Séguier also reprinted Montalbanus' botanical bibliography, which was published in 1657, under the pseudonym of Bumaldus. This work gives detailed coverage of the writings of Adrovandi, whose pupil Montalbanus had been, along with extensive and fulsome coverage of the writings, published and unpublished, of Montalbanus.

        Nova & Accuratissima Totius Terrarum Orbis Tabula Nautica . . . per Edm. Halley

      Amsterdam, 1740. No Binding. Very Good. 20 ¾ x 56 ¾ inches. Fine original color; few fold reinforcements, light stains, marginal mends, still excellent overall; archivally mounted with a silk mat in a white gold leaf frame.Scarce. A large, strikingly designed world map by the great English scientist, Edmund Halley, after whom the famous comet was named. It was the first map to delineate magnetic declination (i.e. compass variations resulting from the earth's magnetism) across most of the surface of the globe. Halley intended this chart to be used at sea by navigators, and as Whitfield points out, "a version of this chart was part of the navigator's essential equipment." In fact, no previous world map contained as much navigation-related data as this one. It also depicts prevailing winds and ocean currents, in addition to the aforementioned compass variations. Cf. Whitfield, P. The Image of the World, p. 110.

        Dictionnaire Historique et Critique par Mr. Pierre Bayle. Cinquime dition

      Amsterdam, Leiden, The Hague, Utrecht, 1740. Folio; four 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, reserving his most daring insinuations to the renvois (references) which supplemented the actual entries. For over half a century, until the 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. Folio; four volumes. First edition. Chauffepr was a Protestant philosopher, a French exile in Holland much like Bayle, who 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 also superb. stock#OB450.

        Accurater Geographischer Entwurf der Königlichen Dänischen auf der Küste Choromandel in Ost-Indien belegenen Stadt und Vestung Trankenbar oder Tarangenbadi u Dansburg

      Augsburg: [circa 1740]. Copper engraved map, full period hand colouring. 19 5/8 x 24 1/8 inches. Beautiful 18th century map of the region surrounding Tharangambadi, the chief factory of the Dutch East India Company in southwestern India. The Dutch East India Company founded Tharangambadi (aka Trankebar or Tranquebar) in the early 17th century. With the town's strategic presence on the southwest coast and protection by an impressive fort, Tharanambadi quickly became the chief factory of the Company. In the early 18th century, Protestant missionaries from Germany came to the region and established a mission, with Moravian Brethren soon to follow. These facts combined no doubt encouraged German mapmaker Matthaeus Seutter to produce this splendid map of the region. Along both sides of the map, a tremendous amount of textual information explains the various sites and settlements, by means of five symbolic and thirteen numbered references. Aesthetically, the map is extremely pleasing, and is here in full period colour. Matthaeus Seutter was one of the most important German mapmakers of the eighteenth century. Born in Augsburg in 1678, he became an apprentice to the renowned cartographer Johann Baptiste Homann in Nuremberg. In 1707 he established himself as a map publisher in Augsburg, and quickly became Homann's main rival. His business flourished and by 1731 he was appointed Geographer to the Imperial Court. He produced some of the age's most beautiful maps, atlases, and globes, all of which are famed for their cartographic detail, brilliant colour, and ornate cartouches. Not in Gole.

        [Manuscript Indenture Signed]: Bennet Bard and Anthony Woodward (October 6, 1740)

      (New Jersey). (1740). Manuscript Indenture Signed by Bennet Bard, made for Anthony Woodward, "Cloath Dresser," on one sheet of laid paper measuring approximately 12.25" x 15" unfolded. Dated October 6, 1740. Signed by two witnesses: James Johnston and John Bunting. Sets forth the terms and conditions of Woodward's three-year indenture to Bennet Bard, Esq., of the City of Burlington, in the Western Division of the Province of New Jersey. A few tiny tears to the corner folds, short sections of the horizontal creases have been neatly reinforced with Japanese paper on the blank verso, about very good. A Colonial era document from the noted Bard family of New Jersey and New York. Bennet Bard, the eldest son of Huguenot immigrants, inherited and acquired extensive tracts of land in Burlington county. As detailed in this document, Anthony Woodward entered into a three year contract "in Consideration of the Rents, Covenants, Conditions & Agreements herein Ascertained" to live and work at a saw mill on one of these tracts. Little else is recorded about Woodward. Bennet Bard served as Sheriff of nearby Hunterdon county in 1736, but he was removed from office after being found guilty of "divers notorious Barratrys Extortions and other malversions in his Office, and of Cruelly and unjustly Using and Abusing the Prisoners in his Custody." In 1745 and 1750 respectively, Bennet published notices in the Pennsylvania Gazette and New York Gazette, offering rewards for a "run away Mulatto Spanish Slave, named George," and run away "Irish Servant Man named, Peter Garagan." Clearly not one of the more beloved Bards (his younger brother John and his son Samuel were both celebrated physicians), but a notable Colonial personage nonetheless.

        An essay on regimen. Together with five discourses

      C. Rivington London: C. Rivington, 1740. Cheyne, George (1671-1743). An essay on regimen. Together with five discourses, medical moral, and philosophical . . . 8vo. [4], xvi, iv, 344pp.; 6 unpaginated part-titles bound between pp. ii-iii (2nd series). London: C. Rivington and J. Leake, 1740. 205 x 132 mm. Paneled calf c. 1740, rebacked, corners rubbed, front free endpaper renewed. Faint dampstains on last 30 leaves, occasional minor spotting. Errata corrected in the margins. Early ownership signature on front pastedown. First Edition. While Cheyne is best know for his works on gout (G-M 4487) and hypochondria (G-M 4840), these were really part of a continuing program of medical writing that stressed moderation in diet and drink and the exploration of aspects of the mind-body relationship. These topics, which occupied Cheyne from the 1720s until his death, made him one of the most widely read English medical writers. A second edition of Cheyne's Regimen was published the same year as the first. DSB. Wellcome II, 339.

        Die wahre und lebendige Natur und Kraft des Creutzes Jesu Christi, zur thätigen Gemeinschafft im Glauben, in einem gerichtlichen Bekänntnisz, von dem Menschen-Tand vindiciret, wodurch es so viele Zeiten her den Menschen-Kindern verborgen und unsichtbar gemacht worden, samt kurtzen Bericht, was dabey zu Stockholm in Schweden pasziret, nebst Communication derer in meritis causæ eingegebenen Schriften, zur einfältigen Prüfung Gott suchender Seelen ausgegeben.

      (Rostock), 1740. 8:o. (16),350,(2 blanka) s. Samtida lätt nött hfrbd med guldornerad rygg och upphöjda bind. Stänkta snitt. Ryggen med ytlig spricka i skinnet. Titelbladet med fuktfläck. Inlednings- och avslutningsvis med fuktfläck i inre marginalen. Fint ex.. Erik Molin (1709-55) svärmade i unga år för pietistiska ideer och fick under 1730-talet möta mycket kritik från kyrkorådet för skrifter och predikningar. 1734 fråntogs han rätten att predika och en utdragen process mot honom påbörjades. Utan att något straff utdömdes fick ärendet vila till hösten 1735. Molin valde dock att under denna tid nonchalera predikoförbudet. Resultatet blev att han ombades att frivilligt lämna landet, vilket han vägrade. Han sattes i häktesförvar i fyra år och därefter dömdes han till landsförvisning. Han reste bl.a. till Rostock, Altona och Amsterdam och utgav under denna tid ett flertal skrifter, många av dem i försök att få landsförvisningen hävd. "Die wahre und lebendige" är troligen den första skrift han utgav efter att landsförvisningen trätt i kraft

        Paye qui Tombe.

      Die erste vale betaelt de Speelman, die laest, de Kosten. Kupferstich mit Untertitel. Amsterdam, J. van Egmont ohne Jahr [um 1740.] Etwa 39 : 42 cm / 61 : 47 cm (Plattenrand / Blattgröße. Der satirische Einblattdruck »[...] 'Paye qui Tombe', (Whoever falls off, pays) depicts a fairground tent in which competitors attempt in turn to dance along a slack rope. There is a discreet number attached to every figure, with a trilingual key. A thesis could be written on this print alone. The Young Pretender (Charles Edward) has just lost his balance, while the Emperor awaits his turn. France and Holland stand by as musicians, while the Old Pretender is peeping anxiously over the hangings of the fairground tent - thus subtly implying that he has not been prepared (or able) to pay the price of admission.« (Satirical Prints, Pamphlets and Polemics. Aberdeen, University o. J. [um 2005], S. 5. Beschreibung zu einem Exemplar aus der MacBean Collection) . - Charles Edward Stuart (1720-1788) beanspruchte die Thronnachfolge in Großbrittanien. Aus seinem franz. Exil plante er die Invasion der brit. Insel. Dieses Vorhaben misslang schlussendlich. Nach abenteuerlicher Flucht durch die schottischen Hochlande gelangte er zurück auf das europ. Festland. Seine Gegner nannten ihn »The Young Pretender« im Gegensatz zu seinem Vater, dem »Old Pretender«. Seine Anhänger bevorzugten die Bezeichnung King Charles III. oder liebevoll, scherzhaft »Bonnie Prince Charlie«. - Es gibt frühere Versionen des Blattes und diese beziehen sich auf den Großvater von Charles Edward Stuart, James II., der hier vom Seil fällt, während Louis XIV. einen Versuch unternimmt, das Seil zu betreten, beobachtet von William III. (cf. Online Archive of California, OAC). - Romeyn de Hooghe, auf dessen Zeichnung die hier vorliegende Karikatur zurück geht, »war nicht nur der erste politische Ikonograph großen Stiles in Holland, sondern auch sein erster großer politischer Karikaturist. Durch seine satir. Darstellungen, hat er den furchtbaren Gegener Hollands, Ludwig XIV., (u. dessen Stuartschen Bundesgenossen, den Prätendenten u. dessen kathol. Anhang) [...] erfolgreich bekämpft [...]. H. ist der wichtigste u. glänzendste Vertreter des holländ. Spätbarocks [...]« (Thieme/Becker 17, 460). - Knickfalten, Ränder etwas ausgefranst und leicht angestaubt. Guter Erhaltungszustand dieses Einblattdruckes, gratiger, kontrastreicher Druck.

      Augusta, 1740 ca. Incisione in rame, colore d'epoca, cm 50 x 58 (alla lastra). Se le carte del Seutter in molto assomigliano a quelle dell'Homann, tanto da non essere talvolta subito distinguibili, ci? che maggiormente le differenzia riguarda il cartiglio, spesso enormemente accresciuto con figure che si rifanno al mito, piuttosto che a qualche potente cui sia dedicata la stampa. Inoltre, non di rado, nella parte inferiore dl foglio, trovano spazio degli scorci di citt?, cosa che costituisce una su caratteristica peculiare rispetto ad altri editori, anche del passato. Esemplare con un'impressione un po' stanca e un leggero foxing al margine bianco ma, nell'insieme, in buono stato.
