Taylor, Jacob
Philadelphia: Printed and Sold by Andrew Bradford, 1741. [32]pp. 12mo. Printed self-wrappers, stitched. Contemporary ink inscription ("Jacob Taylor") in upper margin of titlepage; contemporary ink correction on p.[27]. Cellophane tape joining signature at spine, occasional minor foxing. Else bright, clean, and very good. In a half morocco and cloth box. An almanac by Jacob Taylor, who published his important Pennsylvania almanac for the years 1700 to 1746. It is a distinct possibility that the present copy was owned and signed by Taylor, as his inscribed name on the titlepage is accompanied later in the volume by a manuscript correction to a poem ("manumated" becomes "manumitted"). Taylor took the poetry in his almanacs seriously, printing excerpts of PARADISE LOST in 1741, and composing well-received verse of his own. In addition to the calendar, this 1746 almanac contains a substantial amount of poetry; lists of courts, fairs, and Quaker meetings; and a discussion of Hannibal's oath before the gods. This he concludes with a quote from the 1739 almanac of "R. Saunders" (Benjamin Franklin's Poor Richard) on the dangers of false wit and pride in the present age, commenting favorably on Saunders, "By wicked Wit the Truth is often drown'd; Here certain Truth adorn'd with Wit is found" (p.[23]). Taylor's almanac was printed by different Philadelphia printers over time. Some were printed by Franklin, but this one was issued by Andrew Bradford, one of Franklin's rivals and the son of William Bradford, the first printer in Philadelphia. DRAKE 9634. EVANS 4818.

ANDRY, Nicolas.
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.

Picart, Bernard.
Paris, Rollin fils, 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.

Schubert, Heinrich
Verlegung des Wäysenhauses, Halle, 1741. [Title page], [14], [1]-886, [1]-736, [44] (Registers): 1680 pages, complete. The first edition of Heinrich Schubert's sermons; two parts in one large clasped volume. A solid copy in original binding with sturdy hinges and stable clasp in working order. Pages age-toned but minimal staining. Early signatures of Andreas Jung (1777) and Sophie E. Deithoff. Jung landed in Halifax Nova Scotia on The Ann, 13 September, 1750 and settled in Lunenburg. This volume is directly related to the first Lutheran Church in Canada, The Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church in Lunenburg. "Andreas was an ardent Lutheran. In 1760 he wrote to relatives in Germany, regarding the need of an Evangelist Lutheran Minister; he also noted that peace was made with the Indians. In 1770 he was elected one of the Elders of Zion Lutheran Church. During the construction of the church he contributed voluntary labour, a few materials and money. He was also employed in the construction of the Church, as one of the highest rated artificers and was paid 3 shillings a day. He signed the Membership Roll in 1775 and appears in Church Account Book 1770 - 1785. In addition to being an Elder, he was Church Treasurer from its formation in 1770 until the time of his death in 1808. During the construction of the Parsonage in 1773, lime etc. for mortar and plaster was bought from Casper JUNG."

Cassani, Joseph
First -and only- edition of this extremely rare and important work on the Jesuit Missions in New Granada (current Colombia), including extensive information on the Orinoco. The work is rich in information regarding the labor and progresses made by the Societas Iesu, the local costumes, way of life, and the history of the region. It also includes information taken from earlier Jesuit sources, mainly those of father Gumilla, who focuses more on the Orinoco. "... a very important chronicle of a part of America where there exists very little documentation. It is a work that, with that of Piedrahita, forms a complete history of New Granada" (Leclerc). Cassani (1673 -1750) was a Spanish Jesuit professor of mathematics and astronomy, a prolific writer and learned scholar and ultimately one of the founders of the Academia de la Lengua Española (1713); amongst his works we count the Tratado de la naturaleza y origen de los cometas (Madrid, 1737) and a part of the famed biography of the Jesuits Varones Ilustres de la Compañia de Jesus. As a Jesuit, he had access to the letters and relations from missionaries to America, which allowed him to compose this chronicle on the Jesuit exploits in Colombia. This work is ostensibly the most important and comprehensive made on the subject to the time of its publication. Illustrated with a folding map of Colombia and Venezuela, by Minguet after the map by Gumilla -published in his "El Orinoco Ilustrado", 1741-, which shows the locations of the full network of Jesuit missions in the region; it includes the mouth of the Orinoco River, the North o … [Click Below for Full Description]

SCULTETUS (SCHULTES), Johannes.
Blake p. 412; BMN I, p. 302; Hirsch V, p. 298f; STCN (8 copies); cf. Garrisson & Morton 5571; Heirs of Hippocrates 293; Krivatsy 10476. Enlarged and richly illustrated new Dutch translation, by Gerard Dicten, of the greatly expanded 1741 edition of the most famous, comprehensive and complete surgical work on operative and other procedures, such as amputations, reduction of dislocations, forceps delivery of dead fetuses, neurosurgery, bandaging and splinting, etc., containing an extensively illustrated catalogue of surgical instruments of the period.Johannes Schultes (1595-1645), born in Ulm on the Danube and a pupil of Hieronymus Fabricius ab Aquapendente and Adriaan van de Spiegel at Padua, ranked alongside Fabry von Hilden as the leading German surgeon of his era. He was the inventor of many devices and bandages such as the many-tailed bandage (known as Scultetus's bandage). Its practical value for surgeons immediately made it an immense success. The editions published in The Netherlands were of the greatest importance, both for their revisions and expansions and because the international Dutch book trade spread them around the world.An untrimmed copy, with minor foxing or browning and the edges somewhat tattered (the title-page to volume 2 backed to repair marginal damage), but still in good condition.

SELS, Willem Hendrik.
E. de la Fontaine Verwey, Illustraties, 156; or the binding: cf. Storm van Leeuwen, Dutch Decorated Bookbinding I, colour plate 31 (facing p. 122). Beautifully coloured copy, with liberal use of gold and in a splendidly gold-tooled contemporary binding, of the first and only edition of Sels's nearly 300-page verse rendition of the story of King Solomon.Sels (1741-1789), originally a bookkeeper for the Amsterdam exchange bank, withdrew to his family estate to write poetry. He enthusiastically supported the failed democratic "Patriot's" revolution of 1787. The present poem serves largely as a vehicle for Vinkeles's illustrations. The lovely binding is very similar to that shown in Storm van Leeuwen, colour plate 31, by an anonymous Amsterdam workshop that the author calls the "Three Acorn Bindery." The extra attention given to the colouring of the illustrations, together with the contemporary deluxe binding strongly suggests a presentation binding, but there is no inscription or indication of an early owner.In fine condition. The binding is slightly worn, mostly at the corners, but still very good. A beautifully bound and coloured copy, appropriately displaying Vinkeles's stunning engravings.
