FREDERIC II, Roi de Prusse (Friedrich II, König von Preussen), VOLTAIRE, MACHIAVELLI (Niccolo) ou MACHIAVEL (Nicolas)
La Haye, Jean Van Duren, 1741 [i.e. fin septembre 1740]. In-8, plein veau de l'époque, dos à 5 nerfs orné de caissons fleuronnés et cloisonnés, pièce de titre de maroquin rouge, triple filet doré en encadrement des plats, roulette dorée sur les coupes, tranches rouges, xxxii, 364 p. Edition originale de premier tirage, rare, conforme à l'exemplaire décrit par BN, 5347. Vignette de titre de Coster gravée par Besoët. Le corps de l'ouvrage est constitué par l'intégralité du 'Prince' dans la traduction d'Amelot de la Houssaye, de 'l'Examen' de Frédéric II sur une colonne en regard et des commentaires de Voltaire en bas de page. Aboutissement des relations entre Voltaire et le futur Frédéric II, cette réfutation de Machiavel fut saluée par toute l'Europe des Lumières. Théorie de la monarchie contractuelle et du devoir du souverain éclairé envers son peuple, dénonciation des guerres de conquête..., principes que Frédéric II s'empressa de bafouer dès son accession au pouvoir, illustration supplémentaire du principe formulé par Gramsci: "Les grands politiciens commencent par maudire Machiavel, en se déclarant anti-machiavéliques, précisément pour pouvoir appliquer ses lois 'saintement' ". "Frédéric voulut que son texte parût sans nom d'auteur et confia le soin de l'édition à Voltaire qui porta l'ouvrage à Van Duren à La Haye. La mort de Frédéric Guillaume Ier, le 31 mai 1740, fit monter Frédéric II sur le trône. Les sentiments d'un roi ne sont plus ceux d'un héritier et Frédéric tenta d'empêcher la parution du livre. Voltaire courut à La Haye, fit mille corrections et ratures sur l … [Click Below for Full Description]

HOLBERG, LUDVIG). - [A UTOPIAN MASTERPIECE - A JOURNEY TO THE WORLD UNDERGROUND]
Hafniæ & Lipsiæ, Sumptibus Iacobi Prevssii. 1741. 8vo. Cont. full mottled calf w. gilt back and 4 raised bands. Front board loose. Gilding on back and capitals worn. Complete w. the engraved frontispiece, 2 engraved plates and the foldable map of the underworld (placed after the title-page). Engraved title-page. Internally very nice and clean, on good paper. ¶ Originaludgaven. af Holbergs berømte utopiværk, Niels Klim i Undervendenen. Ehr.-M. XII:213 ff.First edition of this influential utopian mastepiece. The satirical piece of science fiction by the "father of Danish Literature", the famous Danish professor of Law and Philosophy, Ludvig Holberg, can be compared in style and setup to Swift's "Gulliver's Travels", which was published 15 years earlier. The sharp political satire is not bound to a specific nation, but to the entire human race, and thus gives a picture of human conditions and thought in general in this period. Though the work does not bear a title which directly indicates its obvious utopian connections, as does for instance More's "Utopia", the name of the land of the living trees, in which Niels Klim arrives, "Potu", is very likely to constitute a word game indicating it's obvious literary intention: Spelled backwards we get: "UTOP". The quaint creatures and societies that Niels Klim meets in the underworld are said to be comparable to the characterization he gives in his Epistles (III) of the different European peoples, and thus we find satirical examples of the English mixed with the Dutch (in Potu) and the French mixed with the Germans (in Martinia).

Alcedo y Herrera, Dionisio
First edition of this early description of Guayaquil (Ecuador), which includes accounts of piracy in the Pacific ports by Drake and Capt. Morgan. The Compendio, the earliest topographical and historical study of this area, gives accounts of the region's products, commerce, flora and fauna, architecture, and shipbuilding. In the introduction the author discusses the importance of Guayaquil as one of the major ports of the Spanish colonies in America, mentioning the attacks of English pirates such as Drake and Morgan and the measures that had been taken to defend the ports. A later chapter (pp. 82-90) is devoted to accounts of the English and Dutch pirates who had attacked the city. Chapters 10 and 11 refer to the Mangache and Colorado Indians. The folding map, signed by Paul Minguet as engraver, shows the old and new sections of the city of Guayaquil, locating some 70 points of interest. Alcedo y Herrera (1690-1777) traveled to America in 1706 with the Viceroy of Peru; he later served as Presidente y Capitán General of Quito and as Governador General of Tierra Firme. His bureaucratic experience made him exceptionally well informed on commercial matters in the Spanish colonies. Palau 6044, notes a facsimile edition of 100 copies, printed in 1946. Medina, BHA 3260.

Toutes les éditions de Jean Swart que nous avons rencontrées, plus tardives, ne possèdent que 4 (dont la première en 1727 et rééditions) et 6 gravures ; celle de La Haye chez Neaulme, mentionnée par Cohen, en contient 10. Pages de titre en rouge et noir. Reliure en demi Veau glacé d'époque à petits coins. Dos à nerfs orné de roulettes entre les nerfs et sur les coiffes. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge, et de tomaison en maroquin noir. Coiffe de tête élimée au tome I, et en partie arrachée au tome II. Frottements divers. Exemplaire non rogné, certains feuillets ont été précipitamment coupés. Les voyages de Gulliver constituent sans nulle doute l'utopie majeure du XVIIIe siècle et un sommet de la satire sociale et politique. Ces voyages sont au nombre de 4 et Swift y mêle adroitement philosophie, science-fiction, fantastique, satire et raison. Dans le premier voyage, Gulliver est un géant ; dans le second, à l'inverse, il se retrouve parmi des géants ; dans le troisième, Gulliver rencontre des hommes qui ont perdu tout sens commun en abusant de la philosophie spéculative ; et dans le dernier voyage, Gulliver rencontre des chevaux qui ont réduit en esclavage les hommes. En fin du volume III, on trouvera les 4 observations et considérations (Clef des voyages) sur les voyages de Gulliver. Tampon Rembr … [Click Below for Full Description]

They developed a unique language and cultural identity.; - vita of the artist: Jean-FranÁois de Galaup de La PÈrouse (1741 1788) was a French Naval officer and explorer whose expedition vanished in Oceania. La PÈrouse crossed the Pacific Ocean in 100 days, arriving at Macau, where he sold the furs acquired in Alaska, dividing the profits among his men. LapÈrouse 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dès 22 ans, après la guerre de la Sainte Ligue (Empire, Pologne, Venise) contre les Turcs, il fut fait général de division. Ses diverses campagnes, notamment contre la France lors de la succession d'Espagne, contre l'Italie et les Turcs lui valurent d'être généralissime, puis à la fin de sa vie gouverneur des Pays-Bas.

ANDRY, Nicolas.
Chez la veuve Alix; Lambert & Durand, Paris. Rare first edition, and a very fine copy, of the "first book on orthopedics" (Garrison-Morton). A work "of supreme importance" (Bick).?Grolier, One Hundred Books Famous in Medicine 42; Lilly, Notable Medical Books 113; Norman 55; Heirs of Hippocrates 697; Garrison-Morton 4301."Nicholas Andry coined the word ‘orthopaedics’ in French as orthopédie, derived from the Greek words orthos (‘correct’, ‘straight’) and paidion (‘child’), when he published Orthopedie (translated as Orthopaedia: or the Art of Correcting and Preventing Deformities in Children) 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). 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."Andry grasped the crucial principles that the muscles in balance are the molders of thebody in childhood and that weakness in a muscle, resulting in a muscle imbalance, canresult 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 onthe 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.

Parsons, James
London: Printed for J. Walthoe, over-against the Royal-Exchange in Cornhill, 1741. liv, 156p., three engraved plates, one of them a fold-out illustration backed with linen; first edition octavo, bound in later roan boards with red title label on spine, a very good copy with some rubbing to the extremities, some soiling to the preliminaries. Parsons, an obstetrician and Fellow of the Royal Society, delves into the physical characteristics of hermaphrodites as well as the social and religious questions they posed. Adopts a clinical stance, lamenting a history of discrimination. In the introduction Parsons asks, "What, but ignorance or superstition, could perswade men to imagine, that poor human creatures (which were only distorted in some particular part, or had any thing unusual appearing about them, from some morbid cause affecting them, either in the uterus, or after their births) were prodigies or monsters in nature? What, but ignorance or superstition, could urge men to make laws for their destruction or exclusion from the common benefits of life?" Includes discussions of past laws and customs since Roman times regarding hermaphrodites.

Entrusted with royal commissions, he created some of the most iconic images of his time. His works were praised and sought after by distinguished art collectors of his time throughout Europe.

Unique édition de cette satire morale allégorique, qui reprend le titre d'un livre de découvertes (la mode en battait son plein), mais qui n'a rien à voir avec un quelconque voyage. L'attribution à Dufresne de Francheville (1704-1781), conseiller aulique en service à Berlin à partir de 1742, lié à Frédéric II et Voltaire, provient d'une annotation manuscrite au titre, de la même écriture que celle du dernier feuillet ; il n'y a pas de raison a priori de la remettre en doute.

MANUSCRIT - JANSÉNISME] LE ROUGE ?
(Paris ?). 1741, 1741, in-8, [4]-510 pages, basane brune de l'époque, dos à nerfs, muet, Manuscrit inédit, rédigé à l'encre brune ; en pied de la table qui ouvre le texte se trouve le nom de Le Rouge, peut-être l'auteur de l'ouvrage. La date du 2 juin [1741], qui figure dans l'angle supérieur du premier feuillet, signe le début de la rédaction du manuscrit ; le second entretien est quant à lui daté, à la fin, du 10 juillet 1741. Passages en latin soulignés dans le texte ; quelques paragraphes biffés par l'auteur. Le manuscrit comprend trois entretiens, sous la forme de dialogues entre Irenée et Philalette : le premier sur la nécessité de s'instruire, le second sur les motifs que les fidèles ont de s'instruire et le troisième sur les points de discipline dont il faut instruire les fidèles. L'auteur du manuscrit s'est inspiré des Entretiens et Nouveaux entretiens sur les différentes méthodes d'expliquer l'Écriture (Amsterdam, 1707) du théologien protestant Pierre de Joncourt (mort en 1725), qui avait imaginé des dialogues mettant en scène les mêmes personnages - Irenée et Philalèthe - afin de défendre ses opinions théologiques contre celles des coccéiens et des véotiens : l'auteur du présent manuscrit utilise le même procédé pour démontrer la nécessité de prendre part aux affaires de l'Église, ce qui le conduit, in fine, à prendre la défense des appelants, sur la question de la bulle Unigenitus (1713), contre les constitutionnaires, qui l'ont reconnue. Reliure usagée. Un feuillet détaché
