        Veteris et Modernae urbis Romae Ichonographia et accurata Designatio

      Augsburg 1740 - Pianta della città edita da Mattheus Seutter, inclusa nel suo "Atlas" del 1730. La pianta deriva da quella di Giovan Battista Falda del 1676, della quale è una fedele ed accurata riduzione. In alto a sinistra compare il ritratto dle papa Benedetto XIII (1724-30) e a destra il suo stemma. In basso a sinistra un elenco del XIV rioni ed a destra una breve descrizione della città dal titolo di Rom. Sebbene stampata intonro al 1725, probabilmente in occasione del Giubileo visto l'inserimento delle Sette Basiliche, raffigura la città intorno al 1676. L'opera infatti non contempla le innovazioni architettoniche alla città durante il pontificato di Innocenzo XII e nemmeno il Porto di Ripetta del 1704. Incisione in rame, tipica coloritura a mano editoriale, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Marigliani, Le Piante di Roma nelle Collezioni private, pag. 235, 140. Dimensioni 590 510mm

        ELEMENTS D'ASTRONOMIE. PARIGI, IMPRIMERIE ROYALE, 1740.

      PARIGI, IMPRIMERIE ROYALE, 1740. Prima edizione. L'opera riveste una particolare importanza per le documentate ricerche sui movimenti orbitali di diversi pianeti, sulle fasi lunari e sugli anelli di Saturno che l'autore aveva lungamente studiato e sui quali aveva presentato una memoria già nel 1717. Giacomo Cassini (1677-1756), figlio di Gian Domenico, a sua volta notissimo astronomo, ricoprì l'incarico di direttore dell'Osservatorio di Parigi e fu al centro del dibattito scientifico di quegli anni in stretto rapporto con Newton, Halley, Flamstead e molti altri astronomi e studiosi.

        Institutions de physique.

      Paris, Prault, 1740. ____ Première édition, rare. Emilie du Châtelet, femme de science et amie intime de Voltaire, a largement contribué à la diffusion des idées newtoniennes en France. C'est le seul volume paru de cet ouvrage. Elle y confronte les idées de Leibnitz et de Newton sur la mécanique et critique le mémoire à l'Académie de Dortous de Mairan, réfutant le principe des forces vives. L'ouvrage est agréablement illustré par un frontispice gravé allégorique, une grande vignette sur le titre, 21 vignette sur cuivre en tête de chapitre et 11 planches dépliantes. Exemplaire avec un intéressant carton du feuillet V5 (pages 313-314) qui n'a jamais été signalé par les bibliographes. Dans la première version l'aplatissement de la terre vers les pôles était une hypothèse, dans cette version corrigée, c'est une certitude. "La Terre est un sphéroïde aplati vers les Pôles. Ainsi voici cette fameuse question décidée... On attend le retour des Académiciens qui sont encore au Pérou, pour déterminer la quantité de l'aplatissement." Petit accroc à la coiffe supérieure, un coin usé. Bon exemplaire avec une intéressante provenance féminine polonaise : Urszula Mniszech (1750-1808). Son ex libris manuscrit sur le titre : "C[omtesse] Mniszech née C[omtesse] Zamoyska 1790". Fille de Jan Jakub Zamoyski et de Ludwika Poniatowska, soeur du roi de Pologne Stanislav Augustus Poniatowski. En 1781, elle divorça de Wincenty Potocki et épousa le comte Michal Mniszeck. Ex libris gravé de son mari, Micha Wandalin Mniszech au verso du premier plat. Il a été Grand Marécal de la Couronne de 1783 à 1793. *-------*. In-8.

      ?Gesigt van de Groenmarkt, siende naar de Vlees-Hal, Vismarkt, Groote-Kerk en Stadhuys tot ?s Gravenhage.??Kopergravure vervaardigd ca. 1740 door Leonardus Schenk. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 56,5 x 95,5cm.Er is veel veranderd rondom de Haagse Groenmarkt. Behalve het Oude Stadhuis en de Grote Kerk, hebben de meeste huizen de tand des tijds niet doorstaan. Wel is het stratenplan en de rooilijn van de bebouwing gebleven en heet het er nog steeds Dagelijkse Groenmarkt en Riviervismarkt en kijken we van net voor de Venestraat richting Westeinde.Het was er net als nu ook toen druk op straat. Een tiental stallen toont volle manden met verschillende producten. Op de groentemarkt verkocht men niet alleen groenten en fruit, maar ook koek, brood, beschuit, hout- en ijzerwaren, aardewerk, manden, oude kleren, kousen, hoenders en konijnen.Verkopers onderhandelen met klanten terwijl kinderen en honden door de straat rennen. Twee heren te paard dragen pistolen in holsters bij zich. Verderop in de straat rijdt een koets met vierspan.De St. Nicolaaskapel was als Vleeshal bestemd waarin 39 stallen of vleesbanken moeten hebben gestaan die jaarlijks bij opbod werden verpacht. Voor de Vleeshal rijdt een koets met drie nobele dames. In de deken van een van hun paarden heeft de kunstenaar zijn initialen als monogram ?LS?? verwerkt.Graveur Leonardus Schenk (1696-1767) nam de zaak over van zijn Pieter Schenk, toen deze overleed rond 1715 en was een actief kaarten en prenten verkoper in de jaren 1730 - 40.Prijs: ?6.500,- (incl. lijst, incl. 21% BTW).

Depuis le Tol Heck, vers ses Eglises, Edifices.? Kopergravure in 2 bladen, met tekst. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm.: prent 56 x 90 cm, lijst 87 x 121 cm.Profiel van de stad van links het Funen havengebied tot het bolwerk Leeuwenburg (ook wel Blauwhoofd genoemd), vervaardigd door Hendrik de Leth, 2de staat ca. 1740 uitgegeven door Johannes Covens en Cornelis Mortier.De compositie biedt een mooi evenwicht tussen het scheeprijke IJ met de stad en de hoge wolkenlucht. Er is genoeg ruimte voor een breed titellint in zowel Nederlands als Frans. Het lint wordt rechts en links vastgehouden door putti. De twee putti rechts hebben een bazuin en een schip in hun hand. In het midden zitten twee putti op een wolk, waarvan de ene een gevleugelde helm draagt en een Mercuriusstaf en geldbuidel vast heeft en de ander het stadszegel en het stadswapen met de keizerskroon. Het standpunt van de kunstenaar ligt enkele meters boven het water, alsof hij vanuit een hoge mast kijkt. Tussen de masten door is duidelijk het profiel van de stad te zien met de belangrijke gebouwen naar verhouding extra groot weergegeven.Op de spiegel van het grote schip op de voorgrond, ?De Visser? genaamd, is een schildje met ?H de L? te zien. De naam ?De Visser? is een verwijzing naar de uitgeverij van de familie Viss(ch)er. ?H de L? is Hendrik de Leth. De vader van Hendrik, uitgever Andries de Leth, werkte oorspronkelijk als zgn. ?faktor? (verkoper) voor de boek-, kaart- en kunsthandel ?In de Visscher? van Nicolaes Visscher op de Amsterdamse Beurssluis. Na de dood van Visscher kreeg Andries de Leth de dagelijkse leiding over de zaak en na de dood van de weduwe Visscher in 1726, heeft Andries de Leth de zaak overgenomen.De prent moet zijn vervaardigd tussen 1728 en 1731. Hendrik de Leth trad in 1728 toe tot het boekverkopersgilde en werd tevens compagnon van zijn vader Andries in de zaak op de Beurssluis. De koperplaten werd later verkocht aan de uitgeverij van Johannes Covens en Cornelis Mortier die de prent, voorzien van hun eigen naam, rond 1740 opnieuw uitgaven.Prijs: ?8.750,- (incl. lijst).

        Nuova Carta Del Polo Artico secondo l'ultime observaioni

      Amsterdam: Giovanni Battista Albrizzi, 1740. unbound. Map. Uncolored copper plate engraving. Image measures 11 x 12.75" Rarely seen in black and white, this map of the North Pole and Northern Hemisphere demonstrates geographic knowledge as of the mid-18th century. The map shows the Northeast Passage, or northern sea route, discovered by William Barentsz in 1596, as well as the islands of Nova Zembla and Spitzbergen that he also discovered. However, the corresponding region in North America, and therefore a possible Northwest Passage, remains blank, reflecting both the lack of knowledge of this area and the continued hope that such a route might be found. The North Pole itself also remains empty, as it would not be explored for another century, and California is shown as an island. The areas that the map does describe, however, are nicely detailed, and in particular New Denmark, Greenland, the rivers of North America, and the Great Wall of China. A banner across the top of the page, running behind the map, bears its title. The map is a dark impression on bright paper and is in very good condition. No chips or tears. Minor wear to original fold and slight offsetting. Giovanni Battista Albrizzi (1698-1777) was a prominent Venetian publisher of books and maps. He inherited his business from his father and was part of a family active in publishing and bookselling in Venice for 150 years. In addition, he edited a weekly bulletin, Novelle della Repubblica delle Lettere, which reviewed and commented on books published throughout Europe. This scarce map is from Atlante Novissimo Che Contiene tutte le parti del Mondo, an Italian edition of De Lisle's Atlas. Albrizzi worked with Isaac Tirion, a Dutch publisher, to update the maps for this edition.

        Spatiosissimum Imperium Russiæ Magnæ.

      1740 - Augsburg, c.1740. Original colour. 495 x 565mm A very fine example. A detailed map of the Russian Empire, with an elaborate title cartouche surmounted by the portraits of the Empress Anna Ivanovna, who reigned from 1730-1740, and Anton Ulrich and his wife, Anna of Brunswick, and flanked with representatives of the subjects of the Empire paying homage and offering gifts. Anna of Brunswick (known as Anna Leopoldovna) has an interesting history, in 1739 she married Anton Ulrich (1714 - 1776), son of Ferdinand Albert, Duke of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel. On 5 October 1740 the Empress Anna adopted their new-born son Ivan and proclaimed him heir to the Russian throne. A few days after this proclamation the empress died (28 October 1740), leaving directions appointing her favourite Ernest Biren, Duke of Courland, as regent. As Biren was detested by the people, Leopoldovna had little difficulty in overthrowing him (8 November 1740), assuming the Regency and taking the title of Grand-Duchess. On the map are some interesting cartographic anomalies: Noyaya Zembla is wider than it is tall; Kamchatka reaches down to Japan; and large islands feature in the region of the Bering Strait.

        An Exact Draught of the Castle of San Lorenzo ye village & river of Chagre

      [London: T. Gardner, 1740. Engraved plan by Bowen. Shaved into plate area at the lower and right margins. Sheet size: 6 3/8 x 7 5/8 inches. A map of the locale of Vernon's attack in the War of Jenkin's Ear. "The War of Jenkins's Ear was a conflict between Great Britain and Spain that lasted from 1739 to 1748. After 1742 it merged into the larger War of the Austrian Succession. Under the 1729 Treaty of Seville, the British had agreed not to trade with the Spanish colonies. To verify the treaty, the Spanish were permitted to board British vessels in Spanish waters. After one such incident in 1731, Robert Jenkins, captain of the ship Rebecca, claimed that the Spanish coast guard had severed his ear. The British government, which was determined to continue its drive toward commercial and military domination of the Atlantic basin, used this incident as an excuse to wage war against Spain in the Caribbean. In 1738 Jenkins exhibited his pickled ear to the House of Commons, whipping up war fever against Spain. To much cheering, the British Prime Minister, Robert Walpole, reluctantly declared war on October 23, 1739." (Wikipedia). The print gives details of the river and castle which was successfully assaulted from the sea, and subsequently destroyed by Admiral Vernon and his forces. The castle was 45 miles by road to Porto Bello and 82 miles to Panama. The Admiral and Don Juan Carlos Gutierez de Zaxollos "captain of foot, and castillano of the castle of St. Lorenzo, at the mouth of the river Chagre" had reached terms following the initial assault: "Art. 1. That upon His Britannic Majesty's troops being put into immediate possession of the fort St. Lorenzo, at the mouth of the river Chagre, the said castillano, and all his garrison, be at free liberty to march out without any molestation, and may retire into the village of Chagre, or where else they please. 2. That the inhabitants of Chagre may remain in all safety in their houses, under a promise of security to their persons and houses. 3. That the guarda costa sloops be delivered up to the use of His Britannic Majesty, in the condition they are, and the King of Spain's custom-house. 4. That the clergy and churches in the town of Chagre shall be protected and preserved in all their immunities. Dated on board the Stafford, before the river Chagre, the 24th of March, 1740."

After 1742 it merged into the larger War of the Austrian Succession. The present map of Veracruz and its environs, printed just after the start of the war, was produced as it was apparent that the fortress' role as a centre for trade made it a prime target for the British. Under the 1729 Treaty of Seville, the British had agreed not to trade with the Spanish colonies. To verify the treaty, the Spanish were permitted to board British vessels in Spanish waters.
