        Leasing Turtle Bay for Use by the Royal Navy, 1741

      New York 1741 - Manuscript Document Signed. Fifty-year lease on Turtle Bay from Captain Robert Long to Peter Warren. Signed by Peter Warren (with his wax seal), his father-in-law Stephen Delancey, and two other witnesses. New York, March 2, 1741. 1 p., 13 x 16 in. Docketed on verso, with later notes on payment through 1750 signed by Long. A future hero of the French and Indian War leases Turtle Bay for fifty years of use by the British Navy. From the beginning of European settlement, it offered sailing vessels refuge from the East River's treacherous currents and winter storms. Today, it helps weather different kinds of storms: it was filled in and is the site of the present United Nations complex. Partial Transcript"This Indenture made the Second day of March in the Fifteenth Year of the reign of our Sovereign Lord George the Second. and the Year of our Lord One Thousand Seven Hundred and Forty One Between Robert Long Esquire Captain in his Majestys Royal Navy of the one part and Peter Warren Esquire Captain in the Same Royal Navy of the other part Witnesseth that for and in consideration of the yearly rent and Covenants. All that Messuage, Tenement or Dwelling house together with the Brewhouse, Store House, Powder House, and other Outhouses thereunto belonging Situate lying and being in Turtle Bay near the city of New York.together with the use of the large Copper now set up on the same premises." Historical BackgroundTurtle Bay, on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, was one of the best harbors on the East River. While some historians claim it was named after the turtle-filled creek running through the 40-acre parcel Dutch Director-General Wouter van Twiller granted to two Englishmen, it is more likely a bastardization of Dutch word "deutal" (a bent blade), which referred to the shape of the bay. In the 18th century, it was further developed for use by naval vessels-as place to "careen" (intentionally beach) vessels for below-waterline maintenance, dockside repairs, or to await favorable tides. In 1734, it was acquired by British naval captain Robert Long.Here, in 1741, fellow naval captain Peter Warren leased the property, its outbuildings, and all its resources for 25 per year from Long. Warren would soon become a hero of the French and Indian War. In 1749, he would purchase the property outright. Warren died in 1752, but the property stayed in his family until 1791 (see Stokes, pages VI: 173-4). Manhattan's Warren Street and the Rhode Island town of Warren were both named in his honor.Shipbuilders established a thriving business in Turtle Bay, and by the time Robert Fulton tested his steamboat on the East River in 1808, the wharf area was filling up with breweries, carpentry shops, mills, and small industries. The bay was filled in after the Civil War and is now part of the United Nations headquarters at the foot of 46th and 47th Streets, as well as a number of consulates and luxury residential buildings.ProvenanceSotheby's London, April 9, 1974, lot 646.

        Wasserfall im Gebirge.

      - Pinsel in Braun, braun laviert, mit Deckweiß gehöht, über Bleistift, mit schwarzer Tuschlinie umrandet, auf grauem P=apier. 28:19,1 cm. Das Deckweiß ist teils oxydiert, sonst tadellos erhalten. Typische und bildmäßig durchgeführte Zeichnung Dorners. Erste Ausbildung erhielt der Künstler von seinem Vater Johann Jakob (1741-1813), der Maler und kurfürstlicher Vizegaleriedirektor war. 1796 wandte sich Dorner ganz der Landschaftsmalerei zu, wobei er sich zunächst an der Malerei Cl. Lorrains (1600-1682), A. van Everdingens (1621-1675) und J. van Ruisdaels (um 1628/29-1682) schulte. 1802-1803 unternahm er eine ausgedehnte Studienreise nach Österreich, in die Schweiz und nach Frankreich. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach München wurde er Restaurator in der Galerie im Hofgarten, 1808 Inspektor der Münchner Galerie. 1811 wurde er zusammen mit M.J. Wagenbauer (1775-1829), C. Dillis (1779-1856) u.a. von König Max I. Joseph beauftragt, für den Speisesaal des Nymphenburger Schlosses Ansichten bayerischer Seen zu malen. 1818 unternahm er eine Studienreise nach Wien. Ein Augenleiden brachte bis 1821 vorübergehend ein eingeschränktes künstlerisches Schaffen. Auch ein 1843 erlittener Schlaganfall, der zur Lähmung der linken Seite führte, hielt ihn nicht von seinem künstlerischen Schaffen ab. Ein Großteil seiner Bildthemen fand Dorner in der Landschaft seiner bayerischen Heimat, die er als einer der ersten künstlerisch wiedergab.

        L'orthopédie ou l'art de prevenir et de corriger dans les enfans, les difformités du corps.Paris: Chez la veuve Alix; Lambert & Durand, 1741.

      Rare first edition, and a very fine copy, of the "first book on orthopedics" (Garrison-Morton). A work "of supreme importance" (Bick).<br/><br/> ❧Grolier/Medicine 42; Lilly, <i>Notable Medical Books</i> 113; Norman 55; <i>Heirs of Hippocrates</i> 697; Garrison-Morton 4301.<br/><br/> "Nicholas Andry coined the word 'orthopaedics' in French as <i>orthopédie</i>, derived from the Greek words orthos ('correct', 'straight') and paidion ('child'), when he published <i>Orthopedie</i> (translated as <i>Orthopaedia: or the Art of Correcting and Preventing Deformities in Children</i>) in 1741. Though as the name implies it was initially developed with attention to children, the correction of spinal and bony deformities in all stages of life eventually became the cornerstone of orthopedic practice." (Wikipedia). <br/><br/> Andry's "book was the first monograph on the subject, and the emblematic engraving it contains of a tree with a crooked trunk tied to a straight post has been adopted as a symbol of orthopedics.<br/> "Andry grasped the crucial principles that the muscles in balance are the molders of the body in childhood and that weakness in a muscle, resulting in a muscle imbalance, can result in the onset of a deformity during growth. He therefore recommended that the offending muscle be subjected to a course of exercise, by which deformities could be prevented or cured. His methods were simple but ingenious, based on observation and on the principle that deformities that are due to one form of movement or habit can be undone by a movement or habit of the opposite kind. For example, he observed that a corpulent man or a pregnant woman walks with a straight back; therefore, if a youth stoops, he should be made to carry a burden in front of his body. Andry devised balancing and gymnastic exercises and encouraged childhood games. He also used massage, cold applications, and what we now call orthopedic beds. For established deformities, he resorted to the use of mechanical aids. He also believed that deformities in children were caused by ill-fitting or restrictive clothing and by unnatural postures enforced by badly designed children's furniture. He thus paid great attention to the adoption of proper posture, which he regarded as being of the utmost importance. Later in the eighteenth century, Jean Pierre David was to show the value of rest in the body's own repair system, but Andry demonstrated that exercise as well as rest had an appropriate place in the treatment of physical problems."

        Oeuvres de maitre François Rabelais avec remarques historiques et critiques de Mr le Duchat Nouvelle edition

      Amsterdam: Jean Frederic Bernard, 1741. Three quarto volumes, with two frontispieces, two engraved decorative titles, and 16 plates (of which three are folding); joints of first volume just starting but a very attractive set in an excellent contemporary binding of polished calf, flat spines gilt with complex ornaments in panels. The enlightenment Rabelais. Beautifully printed with an impressive array of engraved plates, this is widely considered the most desirable eighteenth-century edition of Rabelais. It is notable for its learned commentary by the scholar Jacob Duchat, and for the inclusion of letters and other material related to the life of the master satirist.This lavish enlightenment production contains sixteen plates including three folding studies of Rabelais' family estate of La Déviniere at Indre-et-Loire (namely, a birds-eye view of the estate with its walled vineyard, Rabelais' chamber, and the domestic courtyard). As the title-page boasts, many of the engravings are from the Amsterdam workshop of Bernard Picart (1673-1738), a gifted Huguenot engraver who emigrated to Amsterdam in 1710. Like many printers of the early decades of the eighteenth century, Picart sought refuge in Holland from religious persecution. Today he is best remembered for his role in the monumental enlightenment study of comparative religion Cérémonies et coutumes Religieuses de tous les peuples du Monde. To this edition of Rabelais he contributed a striking portrait frontispiece (as a religious exile Picart may well have found sympathy with the irreverent treatment of the clergy in Rabelais' writings).This is an excellent set in a striking contemporary, probably English, binding.

        Attaque de Cartagene depuis la prise des forts jusquau 24 Avril [1741]

      - small quarto, 2 ½ page manuscript account, neatly and boldly inscribed in ink, in very good clean and legible condition. It is written on laid paper manufactured by Benoid Vimal, a French paper maker active in the first half of the 18th century. Contemporary manuscript account, written in French, of the Battle for Cartagena in the War of Jenkin¿s Ear. The account is probably a letter from a French trader active in Colombia at the time. This trader is most likely one François Hercouët. There exists in the archives of a notaire, named Morel, from Saint-Malo an ¿acte d¿engagement¿ dated 29 January 1740 to a ship, the Theresa, chartered by the owner and captain, Hercouët, to go to the Americas. There are further traces in the history of Saint-Malo of François Hercouët. He was at the time a slave owner. Most importantly, the newspaper ¿the Courier¿ of 14 July 1741 alludes to the account offered here, H. recounts the events of Cartagena in very similar terms. It is cited that the information had come to the journal by way of a Captain Barcouët, who was entrusted by H. to send the report on to the Courier. The paper related that Barcouët, commanding the Marie-Anne, had left Santa Marta on 30 April and arrived at Brest 30 June. There was, by way of further note, a ¿Captaine Hercouët¿ who was very active in the slave trade to Saint Domingue in the 1770s. In March 1741 a large scale expedition of British and American colonial troops led by Admiral Edward Vernon (1684-1757) arrived at Cartagena, a city on the northern coast of present day Colombia, in the Caribbean Coast region, with a massive fleet of 186 ships and 23,600 men, including 12,000 infantry. They were opposed by six Spanish ships and fewer than 3,000 men, in an action known as the Battle of Cartagena, part of the War of Jenkin¿s Ear. The siege was broken off due to the start of the tropical rainy season, after weeks of intense fighting in which the British landing party was successfully repelled by the Spanish and native forces led by commander General Blas de Lezo y Olvarrieta, a Basque from the Guipuzcoa province in northern Spain. He died in the aftermath of the battle. Heavy British and Colonial casualties were compounded by diseases such as yellow fever. The victory prolonged Spain¿s control of the Caribbean waters, which helped secure its large Empire until the 19th century. Admiral Vernon¿s unsuccessful expedition to Carthagena was the greatest and most expensive that had ever entered the American seas. There was a large force of American colonials, mainly from New England, recruited for the expedition, and this was the first American Expeditionary Force. George Washington¿s brother, Lawrence Washington was a member of the force, and was so impressed with Admiral Vernon, that he named his Virginia estate and plantation, Mount Vernon, after him. The manuscript, written in French, is here given in our rough English translation: ¿The English have established mortars on the nearest fort of the city and fire bombs into Cartagena without effect. They have sent a ship of 70 guns between those which had sunk and led to the northwest of the city and Fort St. Lazare to barrage the said fort whose cannot reach the vessels. The English made their descent under Notre Dame de La Pouppe at night without being sighted and after came by way of the road from Hyhymany [i.e. Imainie, name of the lower city of Cartagena, which means suburb in the native dialect.] into the city where they found 800 militia men and 400 regulars whom they surprised and put to flight and immediately won the road to Bouquille. By this means they were holding the city blocked by sea and land. After being masters of the path to Bouquille ¿ they established a battery and mortars to bombard the city in breach. But M. le Vice-Roy de Sta fe who had come to the rescue of Cartagena made a lively attack with 3,000 Indians who went by the way of Bouquille. They put the

        DI TRE SPECIE DI AFFEZIONE ISTERICA, E IPOCONDRIACA. Trattato teorico - pratico e Consulti del Sig. Conte Silvestro Antonio Ponticelli di Garfagnana.

      Opera dedicata ai Principi Filippo, Infante di Spagna, e Luigia Elisabetta, Madama di Francia. Cm.19,8x12,6. Pg.(4), XVI, 392. Legatura in piena pergamena rigida. Tagli spruzzati. Frontespizio impresso in rosso e nero. Fresco esemplare "Originario della Garfagnana, Silvestro Antonio Ponticelli, di nobile famiglia, fu nel 1741 in Spagna, al servizio del duca d?Atri. Conseguì il titolo di protomedico (1745) durante il suo servizio in Piemonte, occupato dai Franco - Ispani. Dopo la pace del 1748, il Ponticelli venne elevato alla cattedra di Botanica nell?Ateneo parmense, posto che detenne dal 1749 al 1768 (F. Rizzi). Salì al più alto onore allorquando divenne Archiatra di Corte e fu fregiato del titolo di conte di Contignaco, il cui castello forse ascquistò per tale circostanza. Malgrado una così brillante carriera il Ponticelli appare dai suoi scritti mente poco progressiva e un mediocre scienziato. In lui inoltre affiora un carattere talvolta poco generoso, gretto e geloso dei suoi attributi, opportunista e cacciatore di emolumenti e prebende. Fu, in effetti, di cultura assai ristretta, poco portato ad accettare il progresso scientifico, ambizioso e opportunista. In Parma godette, nonostante tutto, di vasta notorietà e illustri amicizie. Parteggiò, nel Collegio dei Medici, con coloro che propugnarono l?obbligo del titolo nobiliare per appartenere al Collegio stesso (1759). Nel 1750 si oppose all?istituzione di una accademia di Anatomia. Chiamato ad Alessandria a visitare Filippo di Borbone morente, tentò di incolpare Roger, primo chirurgo di Corte. Il Ponticelli si dichiarò anche contrario all?inoculazione del vaiolo, per cui scrisse un?opera sugli Infortuni del vaiolo e metodo di andarne a riparo (Parma, 1761), ove sentenziò una probabile ricaduta dopo l?operazione. Nella Gazzetta Medica del 1765 apparve il discorso pubblicato fin dal 1735 dal celebre Sig. marchese D. Silvestro Antonio Ponticelli, Archiatra della R. Corte di Parma, in occasione della pubblica dimostrazione di Semplici per la composizione della Teriacca di Andromaco Seniore. Dedicato a S.A.R.D. Don Filippo Infante di Spagna, duca di Parma e Piacenza. Con ogni probabilità fu il principale estensore della Gazzetta Medica (Parma, 2 novembre 1762 - 8 ottobre 1765; inizialmente col titolo "Gazzetta medica d?oltremonti", nell?ultimo periodo col titolo "Raccolta d?opuscoli medico - teorico - pratici ed anatomici"), rivista che, al pari di quella di Venezia, di cui è molto spesso una fedele copia, ebbe notevole importanza e diffusione. Al Ponticelli venne infine affidato (1768) il complesso compito di riorganizzare l?insegnamento della facoltà di Medicina e il Paciaudi gli fornì anzi alcuni utili suggerimenti. Ma pochi mesi dopo venne sostituito (per incapacità o per inerzia) da Michele Girardi, alunno del Morgagni e celebre anatomista. Rimase in carica come Protomedico fino al 22 ottobre 1769, giorno in cui gli successe Giuseppe Camuti, il quale scrisse per lui una Ode in Onore, segnalata negli elenchi della Biblioteca Medica Universitaria di Parma ma materialmente irreperibile. Nella Biblioteca Palatina di Parma si conservano le seguenti opere del Ponticelli: "Discorso sopra la Teriaca di Andromaco Seniore" (Parma, Monti, 1753), "Di tre specie di Affezione Isterica Ipocondriaca" (Lucca, 1759), "Infortuni del Vajuolo e metodo di andarne al riparo" (Parma, Carmignani, 1761) e "Succinto ragguaglio della composizione della Teriaca" (Parma, Carmignani, 1763)" (dal sito

Fuseli's drawings are rendered with distinction in the engravings of Thomas Holloway, and in one instance, Gillray (see Ray, The illustrator and the book in England, 20). Lavater (1741 - 1801) was a German poet, mystical writer and physiognomist.

Erste Ausbildung erhielt der Künstler von seinem Vater Johann Jakob (1741-1813), der Maler und kurfürstlicher Vizegaleriedirektor war. 1796 wandte sich Dorner ganz der Landschaftsmalerei zu, wobei er sich zunächst an der Malerei Cl. Lorrains (1600-1682), A. van Everdingens (1621-1675) und J. van Ruisdaels (um 1628/29-1682) schulte. 1802-1803 unternahm er eine ausgedehnte Studienreise nach Österreich, in die Schweiz und nach Frankreich. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach München wurde er Restaurator in der Galerie im Hofgarten, 1808 Inspektor der Münchner Galerie. 1811 wurde er zusammen mit M.J. Wagenbauer (1775-1829), C. Dillis (1779-1856) u.a. von König Max I. Joseph beauftragt, für den Speisesaal des Nymphenburger Schlosses Ansichten bayerischer Seen zu malen. 1818 unternahm er eine Studienreise nach Wien. Ein Augenleiden brachte bis 1821 vorübergehend ein eingeschränktes künstlerisches Schaffen. Aber auch ein 1843 erlittener Schlaganfall, der zur Lähmung der linken Seite führte, hielt ihn nicht von seinem künstlerischen Schaffen ab. Ein Großteil seiner Bildthemen fand Dorner in der Landschaft seiner bayerischen Heimat, die er als einer der ersten künstlerisch wiedergab.

        A Description of the Empire of China and Chinese-Tartary, Together with the Kingdoms of Korea and Tibet . From the French of P. J. B. De Halde, Jesuit .

      T. Gardner . for Edward Cave, London 1741 - (15 3/4 x 9 1/2 inches). 64 engraved plates, plans and maps after J.B.B-d'Anville and others, by E. Bowen, J. Basire, G. Child, R.W. Seale and others (42 folding or double-page), including the large general map at front of vol.I, hand-colored in outline. Ornamental wooduct or engraved headpieces and intials. (Minor worming mostly in the margins). Contemporary mottled calf, rebacked to style, spines with raised bands in seven compartments, original morocco lettering pieces in the second and third Provenance: James Whatman (armorial bookplate) The second English and best edition of Du Halde's celebrated and comprehensive history of China and the most important cartographic record of the region from the eighteenth century. The work is further noted as a cornerstone of northwest Americana, as it contains the earliest printed record of Bering's first expedition with the earliest map of any portion of present-day Alaska. In 1685, seeking to capitalize on failing relations between China and the Portuguese (i.e. papal) missionaries over the rites controversy, Louis XIV sent six French Jesuits to China as scientific emissaries. These early French missionaries would launch incredible interest in France for all things related to China. In 1735, Jesuit priest and historian Jean Baptiste Du Halde was given the monumental task of collating and editing the published and manuscript accounts of Jesuit travellers in China into a single work. Du Halde prominently cites the names of twenty-seven missionaries who served as his primary sources, including Martini, Verbiest, Bouvet, Gerbillon and others. The range of the work is impressive. Not only does du Halde cover the geography, history, culture and religion of China proper, but geographically he extends the coverage of the work to include neighboring countries. The important maps within Du Halde's work are after French Royal geographer Jean Baptiste Bourguignon d'Anville (1697-1782). Based on surveys conducted by French Jesuits at the behest of the Emperor Kang Hsiand, the work constitutes the first scientific mapping of China and forms the most important cartographic record of the region from the eighteenth century. The work also contains the first separate printed map of Korea and the first detailed survey of Tibet. The first volume of Du Halde's history comprises a general description of China, describing each province as well as each historical dynasty and encompasses government, law, commerce, art, literature, etc.; the second volume treats religion and science and expands the work to include neighboring regions (Mongolia, Tibet, Korea, etc,) and with accounts of late 17th century expeditions. Within the second volume (pp.382-384), appears the first published account in English of Bering's first expedition through the straits that now bear his name. The text is accompanied by an attractive map, considered the English edition of the first printed map of any portion of present-day Alaska (i.e. St. Lawrence Island). Lada-Mocarski writes: "Bering's report of his first expedition . had not been published previously and the history of its getting into Du Halde's hands is interesting. On Bering's return to St. Petersburg in March 1730 he brought with him a brief report accompanied by a map. This map (and presumably the report) was sent to the king of Poland as a suitable present. The Polish king, in turn, gave the documents to the Jesuit Du Halde with permission to use them as he saw fit. Thus, the first printed report of Bering's 1725-28 expedition burst upon the world in the French work [and subsequently in the present English edition] . It was not until much later that a more complete narrative of this historical event was published in Russia." The first edition in English was published in 1736 in octavo, and contains 23 maps and plates; the present preferred second edition was published in folio with 64 maps and plates. This example from the library of the famed papermaking family of James Wh [Attributes: First Edition]

        Collection of nine poetical pamphlets, arising from James Miller's poem ARE THESE THINGS SO? bound together

      London: Various publishers, 1741. 1 vols. Folio. Modern half calf, with an early manuscript list and bookplate of George Kenyon of Peel, both from the original volume, bound in. "Are These Things So?" - "Yes They Are" - "They Are Not" A remarkable collection of poems arising from James Miller's poem Are These Things So?, an attack on Walpole written in the voice of Pope. It generated enormous controversy and a host of responses and counter-attacks. Miller even penned his own response in the voice of Walpole ("The Great Man's Answer," included here), in which the Prime Minister inadvertently skewers himself. The subtitle of the original was clearly intended to suggest Alexander Pope, and probably to hint at his authorship - the Dublin editions even go so far as to attribute the poem to him. The playwright James Miller has, however, always been identified as responsible; but, as James McLaverty points out, the first edition was printed by John Wright, who worked closely with Pope, 'and it seems unlikely that he could have been involved without Pope's consent'. Pope was not sorry to see confusion about whether or not he had written the poem, and it is possible that he saw the first edition through the press. In that case, the many alterations of which Miller complains in this second edition were probably Pope's own doing. This volume, although rebound and in some places cut too close by the original binder, is an excellent collection of both the original text and the many replies. Some of the poems are really rare - Newcomb's attacking Supplement (2) and the anonymous They Are Not (6) seem to be recorded in a few copies only. See James McLaverty, Pope 's Printer John Wright (Oxford Bibliographical Society, 1977), pp. 7 and 26. 1. [MILLER, James.] ARE THESE THINGS SO?
