[VOC].
Not in Landwehr & V.d. Krogt, VOC; NCC; STCN; cf. Kroniek van Nederland, pp. 557-559. Extremely rare missive from the directors of the Dutch East India Company (VOC), written in what would be the first years of the decline of the company. In 1741 the charter of the VOC was extended in a secret resolution of the States General, despite the rising debts and growing signs of corruption. Upon this resolution, the colonial administrator Van Imhoff (1705-1750), newly reinstated after his opposition to the brutal 1740 Batavia massacre, proposes several measures to reinvigorate the company. In the present publication the directors comment on these measures and they conclude with a list of regulations to be followed by the company's personnel, to prevent corruption and other misbehaviour. We could only locate one other copy of the missive. Two shorter, separately published, related documents are added.First leaf a bit frayed and the two added documents are separated from the bookblock, otherwise in very good condition.

[Boston printing] Whitefield, George.
Early Boston edition of Whitefield's journey from Savannah to Rhode Island and later his departure for New York; George Whitefield was an English Anglican, and in addition to being remembered as one of the founders of Methodism, also engendered enthusiasm for the Great Awakening during his travels through the British American Colonies. The "Continuation" is part of a series, begun in 1738 -printed in London-, though complete in itself, and in the rare Boston printing. "[Whitefield's] influence in America, entirely apart from that which he exerted in Great-Britain, was many-sided and far reaching. With his advent a religious awakening already begun was greatly stimulated and a burst of evangelical activity occurred that had a marked effect not only on the religious and social life but on the political as well... Although others contributed greatly to this movement, Whitefield was its most dynamic representative, its unifying elements and the personification of its tendencies..." DAB. Evans 4847; Hows W374.

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.

PYROTECHNICS - FREZIER, (AMEDÉE FRANCOIS).
Haye, Chez J. Neaulme, 1741. Small 8vo. Cont. full mottled calf w. five raised bands on back, back richly gilt. Small holes and lack of leather to lower capital and back-hinge, due to insect-bites. Bdg. somewhat worn. Internally a bit of brownspotting and occationally a little soiling, but overall fine. Engr. frontispiece (= engr. t-p. dated 1707), 8 full-page engr. plates and 3 about half-page engr. vignettes. (6), XVIII, 394, (6) pp. ¶ This is the Dutch reprint (in French) (also called the "pirated edition") of the first edition from 1706/07, with the engraved title-page from this. The second edition appeared in 1747. "In 1741 Neaulme issued a pirated edition which again, apart from variations on the title-page, is identical to the 1706 edition. Encouraged by this pirated edition Frezier wrote a second edition which appeared in 1747 in three differing versions." (C. Philip, p. 59). Very important reference-work on firewirks. "Frezier was probably one of the most important pyrotechnics in the mid 18th century..." (C. Philip, p. 58). He borrows heavily from other authors, but his works are interesting, also as they scrupulously cite the sources. The plates show different kinds of fireworks, with many illustrations on each and the vignettes show displays of fireworks, as this work also deals much with the conduct and displaying of these.

Cortonensi, Petro Berretino (da Cortona, Pietro); Petrioli, Gaetano
Romæ: Antonii de Rubeis apud Pantheon in via Seminarii Romani. Folio. [4], 84 pp. First edition. Illustrated with 27 engraved plates. Contemporary dark brown calf with seven raised bands to spine, compartments decorated in gilt, contrasting spine label, marbled text block edges, title page printed in black and red with engraved vignette, plates bound following text. A very good copy in a sturdy contemporary binding with strong hinges, discreetly repaired to spine ends and corners, some rubbing to boards, spine toned, offsetting to endpapers, dampstain to title, some light scattered spotting mainly to first few leaves of text, a few stains and marks scattered throughout but otherwise clean, small ownership stamp of Carl Curman, a noted Swedish physician, to lower right margin of title page. Overall, a beautiful copy of this scarce anatomical text. Tabulæ Anatomicæ is a collection of 27 engravings after original anatomical drawings, twenty of which were done by the Italian baroque artist Pietro Berrettini da Cortona. Depicting nerves, veins, bones, and other parts of human anatomy, these drawings were likely based on the artists' observation of surgical dissections. Although da Cortona's drawings focus on anatomical details, the figures are posed thoughtfully in graceful, heroic positions, and framed by architectural designs and backgrounds, showcasing the artists' skill as a baroque painter and architect. Indeed, Pietro de Cortona is well known for his frescoed ceilings, including the famous Allegory of Divine Providence and Barberini Power, in the Palazzo Barberini in Rome. … [Click Below for Full Description]

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' ".

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.

" - Chez Jean Swart, à La Haye 1741, in-8 (10,5x18,3cm), (6) 212pp. ; (4) 220pp. et (32) 336pp., 3 tomes reliés en 2 volume. - Nouvelle édition, rare, après la première édition française de 1727 ; illustrée d'un portrait au frontispice de Gulliver, et de 12 figures dont 4 cartes. 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.
