        FREDERICK THE GREAT / POLAND - BATTLE OF MOLLWITZ (MA?UJOWICE) BROADSIDE: AFBEELDINGE VAN DE VELDTSLAG TUSSCHEN DE LEGERS VAN DE KONING VAN PRUISSEN, EN DE KONINGINNE VAN HONGARIEN, VOORGEVALLEN DEN 10. DE APRIL 1741, TUSSCHEN NEISS EN BRIEG BY ‘T DORP

      Amsterdam 1741 - Broadside: Copper engraving (Very Good, old centerfold, small closed tear entering image near top centre, trimmed close at top but outside of platemark), 39 x 44 cm (15.5 x 17.5 inches). A very rare pictorial broadside of the Battle of Mollwitz / Ma?ujowice (1741), Silesia, an epic showdown during the First Silesian War (1740-2), considered one of the defining events in the military career of Frederick the Great. This very rare broadside features one of the finest images of the famous Battle of Mollowitz (Ma?ujowice), fought in Silesia on April 10, 1741, between King Frederick the Great’s Prussian Army and the Austrian army under General Graf Wilhelm Reinhard von Neipperg. The epic battle, part of the First Silesian War (1740-2), see-sawed back and forth and is famous for placing the young Prussian king in an existential, moral crisis. His experiences during the battle and his ultimate victory, marked a transformative juncture in Frederick’s life, setting him on the road to becoming one of history’s greatest field commanders. The scene of the battle was fought near the village of Mollwitz (Polish: Ma?ujowice), Silesia, which is today located in the Opole Voivodeship of Poland. The scene depicted on the broadside shows a stylized, vibrant, yet chaotic, scene as the Prussian and Austrian armies enjoin full-on battle. A veritable pageant of military action, cavalry is shown charging infantry, with scenes of hand-to-hand combat and fierce cannonades. As noted in the letterpress text below, in the background are the towns of Mollwitz / Ma?ujowice (marked A), Brieg / Brzeg (B) and Neisse / Nysa (C). The letters below identify 26 named major combatants, on both sides, including: 1. King Frederick; 7. the Graf von Schwerin, the ultimate hero of the battle; and 12. the Graf von Neipperg. The creator of the present broadside, Jacobus Hayman (fl. 1729-60), was a prolific Amsterdam publisher of works on current affairs, history, religion and philosophy. He is perhaps best known as the co-producer of the Dutch edition of Antoine François Prévost d'Exiles’s monumental and lavishly illustrated work on global voyages, Historische beschryving der reizen (Amsterdam, 21 vols., 1747-67). Historical Context - The Battle of Mollwitz was one of the most dramatic events of the First Silesian War, part of the greater conflict of the War of the Austrian Succession (1740-8). In 1740, the 23-year old Empress Maria Theresa ascended to the Austrian throne after the sudden death of her father Charles VI. While Maria Theresa eventually developed into a great leader, she was initially unprepared for the events that greeted her ascension. Frederick II "The Great" of Prussia, then 28-years old, likewise ascended to his throne that same year, however, in contrast to Maris Theresa, he was he was bursting with energy and confidence, but also naïveté. In 1740, Frederick took advantage of the political turmoil in Vienna, moving quickly to conquer the mineral-rich Habsburg province of Silesia, which was accomplished with relative ease. However, Austrian forces managed to regroup, mounting a reprise, aimed at reclaiming Silesia. . SEE OUR WEB PAGE FOR LONGER DESCRIPTION.

        A speech delivered by an Indian Chief in reply to a sermon preach'd by a Swedish missionary, in order to convert the Indians to the Christian religion. On or about the year of Our Lord, 1710; a Swedish missionary preached a sermon at an Indian Treaty held at Canastogoe in Pensylvania; in which sermon he set forth original sin, the necessity of a mediator, and endeavoured by certain arguments to induce the Indians to embrace the Christian religion. After he had ended his discourse one of the Indian Chiefs made a speech in reply to the sermon, and the discourses on both sides were made known by interpreters. The missionary upon his return to Sweden, published his sermon; and the Indian's answer. Having wrote them in Latin, he dedicates them to the University of Upsal, and desires them to furnish with arguments to confute such strong reasoning of the Indian.

Nombreuses figures sur bois dans le texte ou à pleine page. Bien que très critiqué à son époque, ce traité est le premier à avoir étudié avec exactitude les ruptures du tendon d'Achille. Cette nouvelle édition contient, au début du premier tome, un "discours historique et critique", et à sa suite, un très intéressant et très utile "Catalogue des ouvrages publiés contre le Traité des maladies des os". Ces deux ajouts permettent de faire le bilan des avancées médicales qu'apporta le "Traité des maladies des os" et de retracer l'histoire de la polémique que sa publication et ses rééditions suscitèrent ainsi que de réfuter les violentes critiques émises à l'encontre du travail de Petit par certains de ses confrères du temps. Au sein du discours préliminaires ont été ajoutées, deux planches dépliantes inédites gravées sur cuivre représentant une genouillère en cuir et une "boite" servant de "pansement pour les fractures compliquées de la jambe".

A part la seconde partie, Pierre Poppy, 1739, les autres parties ont paru sans lieux ni noms en 1739 et en 1740.

Dos à nerfs orné. Pièces de titre en maroquin rouge et de tomaison en maroquin brun. Troisième grand roman de l'abbé Prévost, après Mémoires et aventures d'un homme de qualité et Cleveland, Le doyen met en scène les mémoires d'un pasteur qui en tant qu'aîné de la famille, se fait un devoir de diriger ses frères et sa soeur selon ses préceptes intransigeants, et notamment de les marier. L'auteur souligne les problème d'unions entre catholiques et protestants. La réalité obligera le doyen à composer avec les réalités du monde et non selon ses propres règles morales.

La Pérouse crossed the Pacific Ocean in 100 days, arriving at Macau, where he sold the furs acquired in Alaska, dividing the profits among his men. Lapérouse sailed all the way south to the Spanish Las Californias in 1786. He stopped at the Presidio of San Francisco long enough to create an outline map of the Bay Area, "Plan du Port du St. Francois," which was reproduced as Map 33 in L. Aubert's 1797 "Atlas du Voyage de la Perouse." Laterhe arrived in Monterey Bay and at the Presidio of Monterey.In 1787,[after a visit to Manila, he set out for the northeast Asian coasts. He saw the island of Quelpart, present-day Cheju in South Korea, which had been visited by Europeans only once before when a group of Dutchmen shipwrecked there in 1635. He visited the Asian mainland coasts of Korea."

      Antonio de Rossi for Fausto Amidei, Rome 1741 - Large folio (436 x 297 mm). [4], 84 pp. Title printed in red and black, engraved vignette on title-page, woodcut initials, head- and tailpieces, 27 engraved anatomical plates by Luca Ciamberlano. Fine contemporary cat's-paw calf, spine richly gilt in compartments (boards repaired at extremities), red-coloured edges, marbled endpapers. A few small marginal wormholes, some slight browning and marginal spotting, faint dampstaining to upper margin of few leaves, finger soiling to title and a few other pages. Provenance: Libreria Antiquaria Mediolanum (small ticket to front pastedown). A fine, wide-margined copy. ---- NLM/Blake 42; Choulant-Frank, pp. 235-39; Garrison-Morton 395.2; Heirs of Hippocrates 470; Wellcome II, 146; Roberts & Tomlinson, The Fabric of the Body, pp. 272-79 ; Sappol, Dream Anatomy, p. 9; Norman, The Anatomical Plates of Pietro da Cortona, 1986. - FIRST EDITION. In about 1618, when he was not yet twenty years old, Berrettini prepared a series of twenty anatomical drawings, depicting their subjects in a variety of dramatic poses amongst columns, plinths and arches derived from classical architecture, which remained unpublished until 1741. "Many of the dissected men hold oval or rectangular medallions - they look like framed mirrors - within which are drawn figures detailing the anatomy of various regions. Others have no accessory figures" (Roberts & Tomlinson, p. 273). Gaetano Petrioli must have decided to publish them because of the high reputation of Berrettini's art in the eighteenth century. Petrioli's edition contained the original twenty plates (nos. I-XIX and XXVII) plus seven others with figures copied from Vesalius, Vesling, Casserio and others, along with commentary supplied by Petrioli. As a supplement, to enhance the unity of Berrettini's plates, Petrioli also had them embellished with numerous smaller anatomical figures taken from Vesalius, Valverde, and others, "engraved in an incongruous manner wherever there was sufficient space on the plate" (Roberts & Tomlinson). Berrettini's original drawings were acquired by Sir William Hamilton, the British Ambassador to the King of Naples, and husband of Admiral Nelson's mistress, Lady Emma Hamilton. In 1772 Hamilton presented them to William Hunter for inclusion in Hunter's anatomical museum. They are now in the Hunterian Collection at University of Glasgow Library.

Folio. With engraved frontispiece. Near-contemporary half vellum.

      - Blake, p. 350; Neu, Wisconsin 3201; VD18, 10566074. First and only edition, in Latin, of the first official Swiss pharmacopoeia, with a preface by the Swiss anatomist and physiologist Albrecht von Haller in Bern, and an elaborate armorial frontispiece by Johann Georg Sturm. It takes its title almost word for word from the Wittenberg pharmacopoeia, first published in 1741. Although much of the information no doubt comes from that work, it is here presented very differently. The main text is divided into three parts: "Materiam medicam" gives an alphabetical list of medicinal plants and other ingredients, "Medicamenta simplicia et composita" gives instructions for preparing simple and compound medicines, arranged alphabetically by the names of the medicines, and "Syllabus medicamentorum" gives a classified list of the simple and compound medicines. With bookplate on pastedown. Some slight browning or foxing, a few leaves with small dark-brown spots, but otherwise in good condition and with generous margins. The binding is somewhat scuffed, with a small tear in the spine, and the tapes are broken at the inside of the front hinge. An extensive and important pharmacopoeia.

        Relaçam das guerras da India desde o anno de 1736. até o de 1740.

      Porto, Na Officina de Antonio Pedroso Coimbra, 1741. - 4°, modern plain wrappers. Small typographical vignette on title page. A few minor stains. In good to very good condition. (10 ll.). *** First or second edition; another appeared in Lisbon in the same year (in 2 different issues). This tract was meant to counteract the confused and contradictory reports that appeared during the three years' warfare in and around Baçaim (Bassein), between Portuguese troops and the Maratha.By 1736 the Portuguese had been at work for four years constructing the fortress of Thana, and the workers were unpaid and unfed. The townspeople finally invited the Marathas to take possession of the island of Salsette, preferring their rule to the oppression of the Portuguese. The Marathas attacked several Portuguese outposts in 1736. Most of this work deals with the battle for Baçaim, an important Portuguese trading post on the west coast of India that fell to the Maratha in 1738. Included here are descriptions of the deaths of General Martinho da Sylveira, General Pedro de Mello and Lieutenant Colonel João Malhão. Shorter sections describe attacks on Madapor, Damão, Chaul, Diu and Salsette. Perhaps the most original contribution of this text is a description related in the final two pages of a naval battle on March 5, 1739 at Mangalore between the Portuguese ship @Victoria, under the command of Antonio Brito Freire, and ten smaller vessels under the command of Savaji Angaria: the Portuguese vessel gave a very good account of itself, but was finally put out of action after inflicting considerable losses on the enemy.Diogo da Costa is a pseudonym of André da Luz, a Lisbon grammar teacher (see Barbosa Machado, Innocêncio, Martins de Carvalho and Guerra Andrade).*** Not in Innocêncio; cf.

        Catalogus plantarum, indigenarum & exoticarum, quae in Horto Medico Rotterdamensi aluntur, secundum systema sexuale Caroli a Linné dispositarum.[Rotterdam, the compiler], 1809. 8vo. Contemporary marbled wrappers.

      Kuijlen et al., Paradisus Batavus 103 (& exhib. 86); Picarta (1 copy); WorldCat (2 copies). Rare first and only edition of the catalogue of the private botanical garden of the wealthy Rotterdam merchant Isaac Evert Cornelis van Schinne (1741-1819), established in 1788 at the suggestion of the physician Johannes van Noorden (1749-1800) and containing near 2000 domestic and foreign plants. Van Noorden used the garden to give classes in botany. The catalogue is arranged according to the Linneaen classification and makes references to the catalogues of the Prague botanical garden and Kew Gardens in England, but notes that there are also "wholly new" species, not in those catalogues. Van Schinne's four-page dedication to the Burgermasters and Councillors of the city of Rotterdam and his two-page note to the reader give some information about the history and use of the collection. The collection was sold on Schinne's death in 1819 and the garden closed.With the embossed stamp and 2 different ink stamps of Johannes Hendrik Willem Eldermans (1904-1985), who collected books on magic and occult. One of the stamps indicates that this book was part of his forensic library. In very good condition.

      Stafleu & Cowan 7222; Nissen, ZBI 3067. First edition of the Dutch translation of a detailed work on corals and sponges by the German zoologist and botanist Peter Simon Pallas (1741-1811). In this work, originally entitled Elenchus zoophytorum sistensbgenerum adumbrationes generaliores, first published as a part of Pallas's Miscellanea zoologica, Pallas presents an innovative classification of corals and sponges just after they had been transferred from the plant to the animal kingdom. The Dutch naturalist translator Pieter Boddaert (1694-1760) added some of his own observations and made the drawings for the copperplates. In 1766 Pallas published his Miscellanea Zoologica, which included the descriptions of several new vertebrates, which he had discovered in Dutch museum collections. His new system of animal classification was praised by Georges Cuvier and others.Some black spots on the first 15 leaves, not affecting the text, a small marginal water stain near the end and a large stain on pp. 289-304 and 548-560 from a previously inserted document, edges of the plates slightly frayed.

        Mémoires pour servir à l'histoire de la fête des foux, qui se faisoit autrefois dans plusieurs Eglises. (EDITION ORIGINALE IN-4°).

      - Lausanne & Genève, Marc-Michel Bousquet & Cie, 1741. In-4, plein vélin ivoire, attaches de cuir, sous etui (reliure moderne dans le goût de l'époque), vi, 112 p., 12 planches hors texte, vignette de titre. Rare édition originale in-4° distribuée hors commerce et imprimée sur papier vergé fort, illustrée de 12 planches hors texte gravées en taille-douce par N. B. de Poilly. La première partie renferme une étude historique érudite, qui demeure une bonne source sur les "fêtes de foux", héritage des saturnales païennes, et sur les sociétés qui essaimèrent à partir du XIVe siècle à travers toute la France. La seconde concerne la Bourgogne et particulièrement la «Société de la Mère-Folle» de Dijon, d’où l'auteur était originaire. Les prêtres, au cours d'une parodie de cérémonie religieuse dans leur église, interprétaient des chansons licencieuses et ripaillaient autour de l’autel transformé en buffet. Quant à la Confrérie de la "Mère folle", elle organisait des réunions gastronomiques autour d’un chef, baptisé "Mère folle", de sa cour de dignitaires et d’une infanterie de plus de 200 hommes, vignerons pour la plupart. Les pages 90 à 105 retranscrivent des dialogues de vignerons en patois bourguignon rimés. Les planches représentent des sceaux, vêtements, chars de défilé et attributs. (Caillet, 3475. Cohen, 341.
