        Histoire du Mont Vésuve, avec l'explication des phenomenes qui ont coûtume d'accompagner les embrasements de cette montagne. Le tout traduit de l'Italien de l'Académie des Sciences de Naples. Par M. Duperron de Castera. Dédiée a monseigneur le Dauphin.

      Paris, Huart, 1741. Small 8vo (16.6 x 9.5 cm). xxiii, 361, [iii] pp. Three large folded plates, one very large folded table. Contemporary full calf. Spine with five raised bands. Compartments with rich gilt floral patterns and red morocco label with gilt title. Marbled endpapers. Edges red.= In this work the author, Francesco Serao (1702-1785), gives a detailed account of the mount Vesuvius eruption of 1737 and discussed the shape of the mountain, which, according to him, must have been different in the past, in view of the ancient lava streams outside Monte Somma. The name of the playwright Louis-Adrien Duperron de Castera (1705-1762) is the only name on the title page; he, however, was the translator. In the rear of this copy, an extract of a letter from William Hamilton, discussing the eruption of 1767, has been tipped in, as well as two folded plates showing the 1767 eruption and the phenomena then observed. Apart from these peculiar and useful additions, the book is clean, unmarked. Spine a bit rubbed, otherwise a very good copy. Ward and Carozzi, 2032.

        Original watercolour and pencil studies of West Indian birds and fish.

      Caribbean, unpublished, 1741. Three sheets (size 38 x 48 (twice) and 34 x 44 cm), of which two illustrated on both sides. All three with simple, old, cardboard frames.= A rare collection of original pre-Linnean Caribbean ornithology and ichthyology (field) sketches, on large sheets of laid paper (water mark crowned shield with a horn, and the name L. V. Gerrevink; a Dutch paper maker, active during the first half of the 18th century) most probably made by a sailor with an interest in natural history, during a voyage in the Caribbean. The plates show a number of birds, and fish, described below. Localities are mentioned for most: Cuba, Jamaica, St. Christopher (St. Kitts), Dominica, Cartageña (Colombia), and Maracaibo (Venezuela), thus four different Caribbean islands, on two harbour towns on the South American mainland coast. The first sheet is numbered 258, and has the following birds and captions on the front side (recto) 1. The Rain Bird Jam. Cub. Dom. S. Christ. 2. another sort of Rain Bird. 3. another sort of watchy pickel or Spanish Nightingale [a mocking bird; the name watchy pickel is unknown to us]. And on its verso: The Curaçao vel Gallus Indicus Carthag. Maracaibo & c [the rendering of this bird is quite accurate]. The second sheet, numbered 255, contains 1. Noctua minor ex pallida et fusca avaria Cuba [this is the Antillian nighthawk]. 2. A woodpecker one kind of Cuba. 3. The crab-catcher of Dominica / Jamaica taken in Cuba. And on the verso: 1. the watchy pickel, or Spanish Nightingale Jamaica 1741 / 257... 1741... J: Cub. et Domin. 2. The small black bird of Jamaica 1741. 3. The Banana bird of Jamaica. The third sheet is numbered 240, and contains two fish: 1. Te Mud-fish [two drawings; whole animal, lateral, and the head, ventral] 2. Parot [SIC] fish. All drawings are quite large, some life-sized, and detailed, although slightly naive, and clearly by the same hand. The numbering may suggest that these three sheets were part of a much larger collection of zoological observations, but nothing remotely similar to these sketches is known. The work is contemporary to that of Mark Catesby, but less refined. The artist was probably not a trained zoologist, but, rather, a keen amateur with a good eye for detail. Because of the presence of localities these drawings are of historical, and also zoogeographical interest. Paper of one sheet somewhat unevenly tanned, otherwise in very good condition. Churchill, 318 (water-mark).

This book was a historical and promotional guide for the persecuted, displaced group of Protestants from Salzburg.The Georgia Salzburgers, a group of German speaking Protestant colonists, founded the town of Ebenezer in what is now Effingham County, Georgia. Arriving in 1734, the group received support from King George II of England and the Georgia Trustees after they were expelled from their home in the Catholic principality of Salzburg (in present day Austria). In 1731 Count Leopold von Firmian, the Catholic archbishop and prince of independent Salzburg, issued the edict of Expulsion, forcing twenty thousand Protestants from their homes. Pastor Samuel Urlsperger of Augsburg (in present day Germany) requested help from King George II. George, a German duke and a Lutheran, sympathized with the Salzburgers and offered them a place in his Georgia colony. About 300 Salzburgers, under the leadership of Pastors Johann Martin Boltzius and Israel Gronau, accepted the invitation. The two Lutheran pastor diary's are included in the Samuel Urlsperger's tracts. The first group of Salzburgers sailed from England to Georgia in 1734 where they met James Oglethorpe, the founder of the Georgia colony. Oglethorpe assigned the Salzburgers a location 25 miles up the Savannah River in a low lying area on Ebenezer Creek. Subsequent ships brought the rest of the original exiled Salzburgers. By early 1736 the Salzburgers were given a new site by Oglethorpe on the high bluffs above the Savannah River. The new settlement was called "New Ebenezer." By 1752 the Salzburgers expanded northward and established the Bethany settlement as well as three other minor settlements. The Salzburger community grew to around 1,200 people and covered about twenty-five square miles before the American Revolution.

        Carte de l«Archipel des Iles Viti / Carte des Iles Loyalty/ Carte des Iles Tonga

      Artist: La PŽrouse Jean Francois - 1788 Paris; issued in: Paris ; date: 1827 1741 - - technic: Copper print ; colorit: original colored ; condition: Very good ; size in cm : 43 x 58 - description: Map shows the Fiji islands, on two inset maps :Tonga and Loyalty islands. Friendlyslands:The Tongan people first encountered Europeans in 1616 when the Dutch vessel Eendracht, captained by Willem Schouten, made a short visit to trade. Later came other Dutch explorers, including Jacob Le Maire.Tonga became known in the West as the Friendly Islands because of the congenial reception accorded to Captain James Cook on his first visit in 1773. Fiji , is an island country in Melanesia in the South Pacific Ocean about 1,100 nautical miles northeast of New Zealand's North Island. Its closest neighbours are Vanuatu to the west, New Caledonia to the southwest, New Zealand's Kermadec Islands to the southeast, Tonga to the east, the Samoas and France's Wallis and Futuna to the northeast, and Tuvalu to the north. The Dutch explorer Abel Tasman visited Fiji in 1643 while looking for the Great Southern Continent in 1774 James Cook visited the island and in 1827 Jules Dumont dÕUrville , explored the island. - Vita of the artist: Jean-Franois de Galaup de La PŽrouse (1741 1788) was a French Naval officer and explorer whose expedition vanished in Oceania. La PŽrouse crossed the Pacific Ocean in 100 days, arriving at Macau, where he sold the furs acquired in Alaska, dividing the profits among his men. LapŽrouse 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.

      First edition of the French translation by Marc-Antoine Eidous illustrated a larger map "of the Province and the Mission of the Society of Jesus of the New Kingdom of Granada" and two folding plates. The original Spanish edition, El Orinoco ilustrado, was published in Madrid in 1741.Binders of the time in full calf marbled fawn, back smooth decorated with boxes and gilded florets and parts as caramel and red morocco, cold filet coaching boards, all marbled.A small working toward the tail of the second volume, some tiny friction on the flat of the first volume, leather joints of Volume cracked minor, otherwise fine copy of freshness.Gumilla Joseph (1686-1750) was a Spanish Jesuit priest, missionary to Colombia and Venezuela. He left Spain in 1705 to join the New Granada (now Colombia). From 1715 and for thirty-five years he lived in the plains of the Orinoco region now belonging to Venezuela. Gumilla take this journey to learn the languages ??of Indian tribes and develop knowledge in astronomy and natural history. On his return to Madrid, he wrote his Natural History after his comments.The book focuses on both the different Indian tribes present in the vicinity Orinoco (Othomacos, Guamoes, Saliva) to their physical appearance, their languages, their customs, rituals and beliefs. The spotlight is also made to wildlife (alligators, snakes, insects, fish, turtles ...).These anthropological and naturalistic observations are nevertheless marked the religious missionary seal; Weiss in the supplement of the ancient and modern universal Biography says in effect: "Having noticed among the Indians similar customs to those of the Hebrews, he concluded that the two peoples have a common origin, and that the Indians descendant of Ham, son Noah cursed, it is with justice that the Spaniards were reduced to slavery. [...] The story of the Orinoco, despite the flaws we have against him, is a very curious book and the reading is very enjoyable. "Nice copy. Chez Dessaint et Saillant & chez Jean Mossy

        Jüdische Augen-Gläser. Das ist: Ein [...] denen Juden zur Erkanntnuß des wahren Glaubens vorgesteltes Buch. Brünn, Znaim & Königsberg, Maria Barabra Swobodin / Anton Johann Preyß / Wenzel Johann Tibelli, 1741-1743.

      1741. Folio (230 x 324 mm). 2 vols. (3 pts.) in one vol. (14), 513 (but: 517), (1) pp. (4), 307, (1), 427, (1) pp. Both titles printed in red and black. With 6 engr. plates (one letterpress half-title, one double-page-sized plate). Contemp. calf with stamped label to spine. First edition. Most of vol. 1 was printed in Brno as early as 1741. According to Wurzbach, the author "refrained from attacking the Jewish community with the customary polemics". The Moravian priest Roblik (1689-1765) resigned his office so as to dedicate all his efforts to the conversion of Jews. This goal he aimed to achieve by the power of argument and Christian charity alone, attacking the teachings of Judaism only, on individual Jews, as he hoped the "truth" of the Christian doctrines would become apparent once Rabbis and Talmud no longer obscured them. Volume two constitutes a revision (minus the Hebrew quotations) of Eisenmenger's notorious "Entdecktes Judentum" ("Jewry Discovered"), the original edition of which, published in 1700, had only been re-released by censorship. - Binding rather rubbed and bumped at extremeties; damage to spine ends and front hinge. Some browning and waterstaining throughout. Slight paper defects to double-page-sized plate at beginning of vol. 2. Title remargined at top; library stamp of the Budapest Franciscan monastery.

Oeuvres de Maitre François Rabelais, avec des Remarques Historiques et Critiques de Mr. Le Duchat. Amsterdam: Jean Frederic Bernard, 1741. Nouvelle edition. Three quarto volumes (9 3/8 x 7 1/2 inches; 238 x 190 mm). [2, blank] [10, 4 of which are ads], [i]-xxxvi, [1]-526, [4, blank]; [2, blank], [6], xxxiv, [3]-383, [2, blank]; [8], [2, ads], [8. letter], 1-144, 147-218, [1]-150, [35, table], [3, blank] pp. Each volume with half-title. Volume I and II with engraved half-titles and volume II with engraved frontispiece. An additional seventeen engraved plates, four of which are folding. Three of the folding plates are engravings of Rabelais' residence and the other is a folding map. Numerous other engraved initials, chapter titles and vignettes. Contemporary tan polished calf. Triple gilt fillet borders. Edges and turn-ins tooled in gilt. Spines with red and brown morocco spine labels lettered in gilt. Spines stamped in gilt. All edges dyed red. Marbled endpapers. Previous owner's bookplate to front pastedown of each volume. Some old ink marginalia to final blanks of volumes I and II. Some faded ownership initials to title-pages. Some light and occasional foxing. Overall a very handsome set. "Rabelais [1494?-ca. 1553] was held in high regard by his contemporaries as an eminent physician, as a pioneer of humanism, and as the author of an entertaining Book. It is in this last capacity that he is chiefly known to posterity. He published Pantagruel, the first installment of his great work, late in 1532 or in 1533; Gargantua in 1534; the Tiers Livre de Pantagruel in 1546; part of the Quart Livre in 1548 and the whole Book in 1552. The authenticity of the Fifth Book is questionable; it certainly contains work by other hands and was perhaps worked up from fragments and imperfect or rejected drafts left by Rabelais at his death.The work does not form a single artistic whole. Composed at intervals over twenty years, it varies greatly in character as the spirit moved the author or circumstances prompted; it is loosely held together by a thread of narrative and abounds in digressions. We have in the first two Books the fantastic tale of a family of giants, written (so Rabelais tells us) in moments of relaxation for the solace of the sick, though occasion is taken to expose the author’s views on education, the monks, and the theologians. In the Third Book the fantastic features are abandoned and we pass to a series of amusing and dramatic discussions of the questions of the day. The Fourth and Fifth Books take us on a voyage to Cathay and provide occasion for satire and propaganda suited to the political views of the French court. The interest of the whole lies in the vivid picture it gives not only of French society in the early days of the Renaissance but also of the Protean author himself: his enthusiastic humanism, his love of life in all its manifestations and hatred of asceticism, his interest in knowledge of all kinds, above all his contempt for monkery and scholasticism" (The Oxford Companion to French Literature).

        Histoire générale des cérémonies, moeurs, et coutumes religieuses de tous les peuples du monde. Paris, Rollin fils, 1741.

      1741. Folio (305 x 455 mm). 7 vols. All title pages printed in red and black. With engr. frontispiece, 7 engr. title-vignettes, numerous engr. head- and tailpieces and initials, and 243 plates. Contemp. half calf; spine elaborated gilt with double giltstamped red labels. A perfectly preserved tall paper copy of this beautifully illustrated ethnographic work on the world's religions. Despite condemnation by the Catholic church, the publication was a resounding success. "'Ceremonies and customs' prepared the ground for religious toleration amid seemingly unending religious conflict, and demonstrated the impact of the global on Western consciousness [...] as it shaped the development of a modern, secular understanding of religion" (Hunt). - Based on the author's "Cérémonies et coutumes religieuses de tous les peuples du monde" (Amsterdam, 1723-1743), the text is corrected (and sometimes entirely revised) from the original edition. The plates are mostly repeated from the Dutch publication, but the vignettes are engraved in Paris (by Duflos and others). Also contains descriptions of irreligious customs, such as the Adamites, Flagellants, etc. - Bindings a little rubbed, a bit browned in places, otherwise an excellent and unusually wide-margined complete copy in uniform bindings with elaborately gilt spines.

        The South-West Prospect of Yarmouth, in the County of Norfolk

      Ca.1741 - 7 ¼ x 27 in. (18.4 x 68.6 cm) Watercolor drawing, pen and brown ink, grey wash, inscribed with title on upper edge and annotated with key on upper right (light spotting and browning, fading consistent with age). Provenance: Sir Bruce Ingram; Sotheby’s London, 21 October 1964, lot 11 (£70 to Sabin) A RARE WINDOW INTO GLORIOUS PRE-INDUSTRIAL ENGLAND. This original drawing presents one of the earliest topographical views of Britain, and provides a rare visual record of the historic town of Yarmouth before the upheavals of the Industrial Revolution (R. Hyde, 7). Annotated with a key, it shows the principal features of the seaside town, including a splendid view of the port against a background of meticulously depicted houses and buildings. Samuel and Nathaniel Buck were brothers born in Yorkshire, England at around the turn of the 18th century. They published engravings of 428 views of the ruins of all notable abbeys and castles in Britain, along with four views of seats and 83 large general views of the chief cities and towns of England and Wales. From 1728 to 1753, the two young men set out on an ambitious journey through England and Wales in order to engrave some of the country’s most important cities and towns (R. Hyde, 7). What resulted was one of the most significant topographical undertakings ever done in Britain. Prior to the Bucks’ copperplate panoramas, there were few depicted views of English cities and towns. Only a handful were included in the atlas by Braun and Hogenberg in their Civitates Orbis Terrurum, published in Cologne in 1581. Faced with difficult road conditions, squalid accommodations, and horseback robbers, the Buck brothers' trips through England and Wales were harrowing and arduous. As Ralph Hyde notes, "In such conditions, their persistence and single-mindedness in pursuing their systematic recording of England and Wales year after year.is downright heroic" (R. Hyde, 25). The present drawing of Yarmouth was produced in preparation for the Buck brothers’ magnificent series, Cities, Sea-ports, and Capital Towns. Yarmouth, so called because it sits at the mouth of the river Yare, has always been the gateway to the sea from the Norfolk Broads (a large area of navigable rivers and lakes), and boasts one of the largest marketplaces in Britain. It was also a key setting for Charles Dickens’s literary masterpiece David Copperfield. The supreme naval commander of the Royal Navy, Lord Horatio Nelson, was once a resident of the town. Although most of the Bucks' town prospects bear the legend "Saml & Nathl Buck delin. Et Sculp.", the huge undertaking by the Buck brothers meant that other artists were employed to copy the original sketches, strengthen the outlines of the drawings, improve the appearance of the landscapes, and add figures to the foreground. The Bucks however were certainly responsible for the final appearance of the drawings prior to engraving. There is a drawing in the British Museum by Thomas Rosse for the figures in the right. The staffage in the engraving differs considerably from that in the preparatory drawings. The staffage that appears in the later engraving, absent in this preparatory drawing, can be found in the drawing by Thomas Rosse at the British Museum (1964,1010.23).

        Rivierlandschap - Jacob Cats.

      Rivierlandschap met twee melkmeisjes, tekening met pen en aquarel van de hand van Jacob Cats (Altona 1741 ? Amsterdam 1799). Afm. 16,5 x 24,4 cm. Geannoteerd "J. Cats' linksonder.Jacob Cats was de zoon van de Amsterdamse boekhandelaar Johannes Cats die vanwege het uitgeven van een aantal geestelijke liederen het land had moeten verlaten. Jacob werkte in een met bevriende financiers opgerichte behangselfabriek, waar hij met zijn toen in de mode zijnde landschappen gestoffeerd met figurenen vee indruk maakte. Voor zijn oorspronkelijke tekenenwerk kwam steeds meer waardering en hij kreeg van alle kanten bestellingen. Na een tijd kon hij zich van de beslommeringen van de behangselfabriek ontdoen en zich met verve op zijn mooie tekeningen richten. Cats tekende weinig topografisch, maar wel zeer schilderachtig.Over Jacob Cats schrijft J. Immerzeel in 1842: "Zijne teekeningen, die door getrouwheid aan de natuur en naauwkeurige berwerkingzich onderscheiden, blijven bestendig in achting en vinden steeds tot goede prijzen gretig koopers onder zoodanige liefhebbers, die, ofschoon den hedendaasche veranderende smaak op prijs stellende, nogtans inzien, dat men op verschillende wijzen verdienstelijk kunstwerk vervaardigen kan.'Prijs: € 3.850,- (incl. lijst) .

        Haarlemse kruidmengkunde Galenisch-scheikundig, gesterkt door het gezag der vroedschap. Including : Verklaaring van de meest gebruikelijke caracters welke voorkoomen bij de genees, en scheikundigen.[Copy imprint:] Haarlem, Pieter van Assendelft, 1741 [= Westzaan?, ca. 1795/1800?]. 4to. Manuscript in brown ink on laid paper, written in Dutch in a Latin hand, with an engraved frontispiece (drawn and engraved by Jan Caspar Philips after Romeyn de Hooghe) and 10 numbered engraved plates giving the meaning of 88 medical and chemical symbols and abbreviations, arranged alphabetically. Each engraved plate has been given a wide black ink border, and the frontispiece has also been coloured, probably at the time the manuscript was written. Contemporary half calf, gold-tooled spine.

      For the 1741 Latin ed.: Blake, p. 348; Daems & Vandewiele, pp. 138-139 (4 copies); STCN (5 copies). A carefully executed manuscript translation, perhaps prepared for publication but never published, of the extensively revised and updated second Latin edition of the Pharmacopoea Haarlemensis. It includes the engraved frontispiece and engraved 10-page table of medical and chemical symbols and abbreviations made for the Latin edition. In 1692 the city of Haarlem established its Collegium Medico-Pharmaceuticum, which set up a committee of doctors and apothecaries to compile the 1693 pharmacopoeia. For the frontispiece they turned to Romeyn de Hooghe. The Dutch translation of the first edition, made against the will of the authorities, went through several editions, but no further Latin edition appeared until a new committee of doctors and apothecaries was charged with the compilation of a new and extensively revised edition in 1740. It appeared in 1741 and was reissued in 1790, but no translation appeared.With the translator's 1843 presentation inscription to his grandson, describing it as "translated in my youth". Fredrik Hendrik Willem Klots (Spaarndam 1775-Westzaan 1855), a surgeon in Westzaan when he married in 1800, probably made the translation shortly before that.With an occasional minor spot, smudge or wrinkle, but otherwise in fine condition. The binding is slightly rubbed, has some cracks in the spine and hinges and probably lost a spine label, but is still good. The only translation, never published, of the last Haarlem pharmacopoeia.
