        Imperii Romano-Germanici in suos Status et Circulos divisi Tabula Generalis.

      Artist: Homann Johann Babtiste d ; issued in: Nuremberg; date: d1741 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Perfect condition; - size (in cm): 47,5 x 55; - description: Detailed map shows total Germany with Bohemia, Silesia, Austria, The Netherlands and Swizerland with a decorative title cartouche. The Roman Empire was one of the largest in history, with contiguous territories throughout Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East. In reality, Roman expansion was mostly accomplished under the Republic, though parts of northern Europe were conquered in the 1st century AD, when Roman control in Europe, Africa and Asia was strengthened. During the reign of Augustus, a global map of the known world was displayed for the first time in public at Rome, coinciding with the composition of the most comprehensive work on political geography that survives from antiquity, the Geography of the Pontic Greek writer Strabo. When Augustus died, the commemorative account of his achievements (Res Gestae) prominently featured the geographical cataloguing of peoples and places within the Empire. Geography, the census, and the meticulous keeping of written records were central concerns of Roman Imperial administration.; - vita of the artist: Johann Babtiste Homann (1664-1724), Nuremberg, was born in Oberkammlach, the Electorate of Bavaria. Although educated at a Jesuit school, and preparing for an ecclesiastical career, he eventually converted to Protestantism and from 1687 worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house.Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as a recommendation for potential customers.In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt (Grand Atlas of all the World). Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, who also published Siebmachers Wappenbuch.Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, which was in business until 1848. The company was known as Homann Erben, Homanniani Heredes, or Heritiers de Homann abroad.

Il secondo: parte II, con il discorso XI e la parte III con: i discorsi XII e XIII e “Saggio della scienza delle proporzioni - Saggio delle instituzioni mediche - Frammenti degli altri due discorsi d'anatomia che compiscono il numero de' 14 accennati nella Prefazione”. Rara "prima edizione" di questa importante serie di discorsi che si credevano andati perduti e pubblicati postumi grazie al ritrovamento del loro manoscritto presso la Biblioteca Pandolfini. “Fra gli anatomisti italiani merita particolare menzione Lorenzo Bellini (1643-1704), allievo del Redi e del Borelli, a 21 anni assunto alla cattedra di medicina nell'Ateneo pisano. Egli fu uno dei migliori anatomisti dell'epoca, ricercatore instancabile, osservatore acutissimo, letterato di chiara fama per l'eleganza e la chiarezza del suo stile. Le sue scoperte sulla struttura dei reni e sull'organo del gusto gli hanno acquistato dei diritti reali alla considerazione degli studiosi”. Così Castiglioni “Storia della medicina”, pp. 529.

        Chinese Letters.

      London: for D. Browne, and R. Hett,, 1741. Being a philosophical, historical, and critical correspondence between a Chinese traveller at Paris, and his countrymen in China, Muscovy, Persia and Japan. Octavo (168 x 95 mm). Contemporary dark speckled calf, gilt ruled spine, red morocco label, two-line gilt border on sides, red speckled edges. Woodcut head- and tailpieces and initials. 20th-century bookplate of Robert Hayhurst, Lancashire retail chemist and discriminating collector of 18th century literature in contemporary bindings. Neat repair to top corner of front free endpaper. A very attractive copy, compete with half-title. First edition in English. "From Jean-Baptiste Boyer d'Argen's Lettres chinoises, Horace Walpole's Letters from Xo Ho, and Oliver Goldsmith's The Citizen of the World (1762), China was a literary tool to reflect and comment on domestic European affairs" (Ashley Eva Millar, A Singular Case: Debating China's Political Economy in the European Enlightenment, 2017, p. 68). Jean-Baptiste de Boyer, marquis d'Argens (1703-1771), was considered an ally by Voltaire and spent twenty-five years, as chamberlain, at the court of Frederick the Great. He "helped disseminate the skeptical ideas of the Enlightenment by addressing his polemical writings on philosophy, religion, and history to a popular readership" (Ency. Brit. online). "D'Argens, it should also be noted, had contributed to the image of pre-Petrine Russia as barbaric in his widely disseminated Chinese Letters" (Amanda Ewington, A Voltaire for Russia: A. P. Sumarokov's Journey from Poet-Critic to Russian Philosophe, 2010, p. 210). Reasonably well represented institutionally but uncommon commercially. A lovely copy of an important work.

        Versuch an dem Menschen, In Vier Sitten-Briefen an Henrich St Jean, Grafen von Bolingbroke, über Die Natur und den Zustand des Menschen

      Frankfurt: Franz Varrentrapp, 1741. 8vo (193 x 121 mm). [46], 191, [1] pp. Title in red and black with engraved publisher's device, text in French and German on facing pages in roman and gothic types, eight engraved illustrations, each printed twice, by Martin Tyroff after G. A. Koch, woodcut tail-pieces and passe-partout initial borders. Occasional very light foxing. 19th-century half sheep and marbled pastepaper, marbled edges (very worn). Provenance: 19th-century monogram stamp DG on title.*** A dual-language edition of Pope's Essay on Man, with the French verse translation of Jean-François Du Resnel du Bellay, translated into German by an anonymous poet. While both preserve the rhyme scheme, neither version adheres in any essential way to Pope's iambic pentameters. Following Pope's poem are additional poems by the Marquis de Racan (Honorat de Bueil), Regnier-Desmarais and Madame Deshoulières (née Antoinette du Ligier de la Garde). The engraved vignettes at the beginning and end of each of Pope's four epistles were designed by the Frankfurt portrait painter and miniaturist Georg Anton Koch, and printed (unusually) in both the French and German texts. The Nürnberg engraver Martin Tyroff was a master of book illustration, distinguished by the "softness of his modelling of faces, intelligent distribution of light and shadow, technical correctness, carefulness and tenderness" (Thieme-Becker). Lanckaronska and Oehler discerned a French influence in his work, appropriately for this edition. Packing much information into a small space, the vignettes open with the Creation (showing Adam at the center flanked by animals), pastoral scenes, a scholar in his library, knights and ladies, a monarch and his court amidst architectural splendor, the battle of Zeus and the giants, and an allegorical scene of plenitude. Pope's influence on German literature and even the German language was significant, but this translation contributed little to it. At this time France and the French language still dominated German culture, and knowledge of English was rare. Du Resnel's French translations of the Essay on Man and An Essay on Criticism were notoriously unfaithful: "To adapt Pope's two Essays to his French readers Du Resnel felt himself compelled to make many changes. Passages too harsh for the aesthetic French ear were entirely omitted, others were rearranged or expanded, and he occasionally found himself obliged to supply the necessary transitions which he felt were lacking in the original, so that the number of alexandrines in his version is more than half as large again as the number of pentameter lines in Pope. The German translator follows his French model very closely... Like his model, he uses the rhymed alexandrine and limits himself exactly to the number of lines in the French" (Heinzelmann p. 321). The present translation moreover appeared a year after the first German translation of the Essay on Man made directly from Pope's English, that of Barthold Heinrich Brockes, published in Hamburg. Our anonymous translator, who had already translated The Rape of the Lock from the French in 1739 (Der merkwürdige Haar-Locken-Raub des Herrn Pope...Dresden 1739), apologizes in his introduction for his lack of skill and ignorance of English, adding that had he known of Brockes' project earlier, he would not have undertaken his own poor translation.

Trabaud identifie ce qu'il appelle la physique mathématique à la Science du mouvement , objet de son livre, la définissant comme celle qui vise à "déterminer les loix qui règlent les mouvemens qui subsistent dans cet univers". Comme le sous-titre l'indique, il s'agit de donner les « principes » permettant de développer un discours sur les Mécaniques  et la Physique, cette dernière portant sur tout ce qui appartient à l'univers sensible qui résulte d'une combinaison de matière et de mouvement?. Les "Mécaniques" renvoient manifestement aux machines. Ainsi, Trabaud note que  "la plûpart des Sciences & des Arts" comme l'astronomie et la navigation "supposent" la  Science du mouvement, ou en font partie, comme la Mécanique. Il prend par ailleurs pour synonymes la Statique ou la Mécanique des solides. La bipartition entre le mouvement seul et l'équilibre est un des principes de la physique de cette première moitié du XVIIIe. (Cette analyse emprunte des passages de l'article de Christophe Schmidt MECHANIQUE, STATIQUE, DYNAMIQUE.

        Pharmacopoea Helvetica, in duas partes divisa, quarum prior materiam medicam, botanico-physico-medice descriptam, posterios composita & praeparata, modum praeparandi vires & usum exhibet. Including: Syllabus medicamentorum simplicium et compositorum, in Pharmacopoea Helvetica comprehensorum, ...Basel, Johann Rudolf Imhof and sons, 1771. 3 parts in 1 volume. 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.

Set in roman, italic and 3 sizes of Tamil types, with the pages numbered in Tamil alphabetic numerals. Later 18th-century maroon sheepskin. Rebacked in red morocco, new endpapers.

      Landwehr, VOC 701. Rare first edition of a Tamil translation of the Heidelberg catechism by the reverend Sigisbertus Abrahamsz. van Bronsveld, printed and published in Colombo, Ceylon for the Tamil-speaking Protestant congregation there, for schools and for missionary work. In 1741 the VOC's press in Colombo had printed Willem Konyn's Sinhalese translation of the Heidelberg catechism, but it had received disappointingly little use and Bronsveld hoped his own Tamil translation would meet greater success. The VOC had brought a printing press to Ceylon in 1732 to set up the island's first printing office together with the Dutch Reformed Church, the first book (a Sinhalese prayer book) appearing at Colombo in 1737, followed soon after by religious works in Tamil. A major impetus for setting up the press was the fact that after the Dutch wrested control of much of Ceylon from Portugal with help from the indigenous population in 1640, the Portuguese Catholic priests still retained a great deal of influence and were able to convert some Tamils and Sinhalese. The VOC saw this as a threat to its powerbase and economic position, which centred on the cinnamon trade. They therefore encouraged the Dutch Protestant Church to expand its missionary work, hoping it would curtail the Portuguese Catholic missionary work.With stains from former mildew (treated), mostly in the foot margin of the first few and last few pages. Otherwise in good condition. The binding has been rebacked as noted, but is otherwise good.

        Versuch an dem Menschen, In Vier Sitten-Briefen an Henrich St. Jean, Grafen von Bolingbroke, über Die Natur und den Zustand des Menschen.

      Frankfurt: Franz Varrentrapp, 1741. 8vo (193 x 121 mm). [46], 191, [1] pp. Title in red and black with engraved publisher's device, text in French and German on facing pages in roman and gothic types, eight engraved illustrations, each printed twice, by Martin Tyroff after G. A. Koch, woodcut tail-pieces and passe-partout initial borders. Occasional very light foxing. 19th-century half sheep and marbled pastepaper, marbled edges (very worn). Provenance: 19th-century monogram stamp DG on title.*** A dual-language edition of Pope's Essay on Man, with the French verse translation of Jean-François Du Resnel du Bellay, translated into German by an anonymous poet. While both preserve the rhyme scheme, neither version adheres in any essential way to Pope's iambic pentameters. Following Pope's poem are additional poems by the Marquis de Racan (Honorat de Bueil), Regnier-Desmarais and Madame Deshoulières (née Antoinette du Ligier de la Garde). The engraved vignettes at the beginning and end of each of Pope's four epistles were designed by the Frankfurt portrait painter and miniaturist Georg Anton Koch, and printed (unusually) in both the French and German texts. The Nürnberg engraver Martin Tyroff was a master of book illustration, distinguished by the "softness of his modelling of faces, intelligent distribution of light and shadow, technical correctness, carefulness and tenderness" (Thieme-Becker). Lanckaronska and Oehler discerned a French influence in his work, appropriately for this edition. Packing much information into a small space, the vignettes open with the Creation (showing Adam at the center flanked by animals), pastoral scenes, a scholar in his library, knights and ladies, a monarch and his court amidst architectural splendor, the battle of Zeus and the giants, and an allegorical scene of plenitude. Pope's influence on German literature and even the German language was significant, but this translation contributed little to it. At this time France and the French language still dominated German culture, and knowledge of English was rare. Du Resnel's French translations of the Essay on Man and An Essay on Criticism were notoriously unfaithful: "To adapt Pope's two Essays to his French readers Du Resnel felt himself compelled to make many changes. Passages too harsh for the aesthetic French ear were entirely omitted, others were rearranged or expanded, and he occasionally found himself obliged to supply the necessary transitions which he felt were lacking in the original, so that the number of alexandrines in his version is more than half as large again as the number of pentameter lines in Pope. The German translator follows his French model very closely... Like his model, he uses the rhymed alexandrine and limits himself exactly to the number of lines in the French" (Heinzelmann p. 321). The present translation moreover appeared a year after the first German translation of the Essay on Man made directly from Pope's English, that of Barthold Heinrich Brockes, published in Hamburg. Our anonymous translator, who had already translated The Rape of the Lock from the French in 1739 (Der merkwürdige Haar-Locken-Raub des Herrn Pope...Dresden 1739), apologizes in his introduction for his lack of skill and ignorance of English, adding that had he known of Brockes' project earlier, he would not have undertaken his own poor translation.

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.
