SCHINNE, Isaac Evert Cornelis van.
1741. 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.

Le comte de Caylus est tr?s repr?sentatif de son temps ; brillant officier, bon vivant, auteur de vers badins, de com?dies parfois en style poissard, d'oeuvres libres, de contes libertins et de contes de f?es, il prot?gea les arts et les artistes. Membre de l'Acad?mie des Beaux-Arts et de celle des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres, il ?crivit aussi sur la peinture, les arts, l'arch?ologie et l'histoire. Diderot, qui n'aimait pas Caylus, eut tort de le traiter d'amateur ; en retour, Caylus n'avait de sympathie ni pour Diderot, ni pour Marmontel, ni pour les encyclop?distes. Bel exemplaire provenant des biblioth?ques Renouard (ex-libris) et Desbarreaux-Bernard, ?rudit toulousain (biblioth?que vendue en 1879). Il ?tait une fois les contes de f?es, 32.

(4), 575, (1bl.)pp, pleine basane de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné de motifs dorés, tranches rouges (plats frottés, Édition posthume, en partie originale. 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". Coiffes du premier tome arasées, coins fortement émoussés.

(Rel. de l'ép.), Première édition. 14 planches repliées gravées sur cuivre. Ouvrage dans lequel l'auteur propose l'étude de la géométrie en respectant l'ordre des découvertes, passant ainsi, par degrés, du plus simple au plus complexe. Alexis Claude Clairaut (1713-1765) apprit, dit-on, son alphabet et la lecture dans les "Eléments" d'Euclide. La publication d'un ouvrage qu'il écrivit à 16 ans lui ouvrit les portes de l'Académie des Sciences quoiqu'il n'ait pas l'âge requis. Rappelons au passage que c'est Clairaut qui initia la marquise du Châtelet aux mathématiques et qu'il rédigea le présent ouvrage pour elle. Ex-libris manuscrit ancien.

SCHINNE, Isaac Evert Cornelis van.
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.

PALLAS, Peter Simon.
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. Binding rubbed along the extremities, corners bumped. Overall in good condition.

DU TILLIOT (Jean-Baptiste Lucotte)
Lausanne & Genève, Marc-Michel Bousquet & Cie, 1741. In-4, plein vélin ivoire, attaches de cuir, sous étui (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. Dorbon, 1431. Dinaux, 'Sociétés badines', I, 336. Oberlé, ‘Bibliothèque Bachique’, 543). Quelques auréoles au fond. Joli exemplaire, frais, très grand de marges, imprimé sur vergé, bien relié.

Arndt, Johann
Blankenburg, Heinrich Adolph Pape, 1741. Mit ganzseitiger Kupferstich-Illustration als Frontispiz, großen gestochenen Textvignetten sowie weiterem Buchschmuck.

Seine von Schriften der mittelalterlichen Mystik beeinflußten - ursprünglich vier, später sechs - Bücher vom wahren Christentum, die schon bis 1740 in 123 Auflagen erschienen, zählen zusammen mit seinem Paradies-Gärtlein (im vorliegenden Band sind beide Schriften zusammengefaßt) zu den erfolgreichen christlichen Erbauungsbüchern des 17./18. Jahrhunderts. Absolut frisches Exemplar dieser beiden für die christliche Erbauungsethik bedeutenden Schriften. Wie neu! In diesem Zustand wahre Rarität.
