        Antique Print-SEA CHART-ATLANTIC-NORTH-Bellin-Depot de la Marine-Dheulland-1742

      1742 - Antique print, titled: 'Carte Reduite de l'Ocean Occidental [ ].' - Sea chart of the Northern Atlantic ocean, showing the coasts of France, Africa until the Gulf of Guinea and North America, Cuba and the Northern part of South America. Source unknown, to be determined. These type of charts are scarse as they were actually used at sea for navigation. Engraving on hand laid paper. Made by 'Guillaume Dheulland' after 'Jacques Nicolas Bellin'. Guillaume Dheulland (ca. 1700-1770) was a French mapmaker and engraver. Jacques-Nicolas Bellin (1703-1772) was one of the most important cartographers of the 18th century. With a career spanning some 50 years, Bellin is best understood as geographe de cabinet and transitional mapmaker spanning the gap between 18th and early 19th century cartographic styles. His long career as Hydrographer and Ingénieur Hydrographe at the French Dépôt des cartes et plans de la Marine resulted in hundreds of high quality nautical charts of practically everywhere in the world. Depot des Cartes et Plans de la Marine (1720 - present), often called the Depot de Marine, was a French hydrographic mapping organization founded in 1720. Much like the U.S. Coast Survey, the British Admiralty, and the Spanish Deposito Hydrografico, the Depot was initiated as a storehouse and distribution center of existing nautical and marine charts. Eventually the Depot initiated its on mapping activities in an attempt to improve and expand upon existing material. Some of the well known hydrograhers / cartographers in the development of Depot were Jacques Nicholas Bellin and Rigobert Bonne. Very good, given age. Original middle fold, as issued. A few small stains and creases in the margins and image area. General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling. Please study scan carefully. The overall size is ca. 90.7 x 63.5 cm. The image size is ca. 79.2 x 54 cm. The overall size is ca. 35.7 x 25 inch. The image size is ca. 31.2 x 21.3 inch. Storage location: Overasselt-109

        Plutus, the God of Riches. A Comedy. Translated from the Original Greek of Aristophanes: With Large Notes Explanatory and Critical

      T. Waller, London 1742 - First edition. [iv], xv, [i], 112 pp., with half-title. 8vo. First edition this translation of Aristophanes' Plutus by Henry Fielding and William Young. The comedies of Aristophanes served as a model for two of Fielding's most successful plays, Pasquin and The Historical Register. The dedication is to the opposition reformer Lord Talbot, to whom Fielding recommends Aristophanes as one who "exerted that Genius in the Service of his Country." A footnote to Act II, scene 5, references Fielding's distaste towards those who abandoned their opposition to Walpole when he was made Lord Ormond, following his resignation in 1742: "To make use of popular interest, and the character of patriotism, in order to betray one's country, is perhaps the most flagitious of all Crimes" (p. 57).Uncommon on the market, with the last copy sold at auction in 1982 according to ABPC. Cross III, p. 307. Provenance: contemporary marginalia on a few leaves; Bernard Quaritch (pencil collation note on chemise); Louis & Anne Marie Davidson (bookplate) Stabbed-sewn, stitching renewed, with publisher's prospectus slip tipped to half-title, uncut.

        The History of the Adventures of Joseph Andrews, and of his Friend Mr Abraham Adams

      2 volumes. xix+[1]+306+[4 ad] pages; [4]+[1 ad]+320+[2] pages. Duodecimo (6 1/2" x 6 1/4") bound in Nineteenth century full leather by Francis Bedford with five raised bands with green labels in two compartments lettered in gilt and and cover edge ruled in gilt. Gilt edges and marbled end pages. Tipped to Volume 1 front end-leaf is a later 18th century newspaper clipping "Prologue to the New Farce of Joseph Andrews Spoken by Mr Bensley". First edition limited to 1500 sets.The History of the Adventures of Joseph Andrews and of his Friend Mr. Abraham Adams, was the first published full-length novel of the English author Henry Fielding, and indeed among the first novels in the English language. Published in 1742 and defined by Fielding as a "comic epic poem in prose", it is the story of a good-natured footman's adventures on the road home from London with his friend and mentor, the absent-minded parson Abraham Adams. The novel represents the coming together of the two competing aesthetics of 18th-century literature: the mock-heroic and neoclassical (and, by extension, aristocratic) approach of Augustans such as Alexander Pope and Jonathan Swift; and the popular, domestic prose fiction of novelists such as Daniel Defoe and Samuel Richardson. The novel draws on a variety of inspirations. Written "in imitation of the manner of Cervantes, the author of Don Quixote", the work owes much of its humor to the techniques developed by Cervantes, and its subject-matter to the seemingly loose arrangement of events, digressions and lower-class characters to the genre of writing known as picaresque. In deference to the literary tastes and recurring tropes of the period, it relies on bawdy humor, an impending marriage and a mystery surrounding unknown parentage, but conversely is rich in philosophical digressions, classical erudition and social purpose. Fielding's first venture into prose fiction came a year previously with the publication in pamphlet form of Shamela, a travesty of, and direct response to, the stylistic failings and moral hypocrisy that Fielding saw in Richardson's Pamela. Richardson's epistolary tale of a resolute servant girl, armed only with her "virtue", battling against her master's attempts at seduction had become an overnight literary sensation in 1741. The implicit moral message -- that a girl's chastity has eventual value as a commodity --, as well as the awkwardness of the epistolary form in dealing with ongoing events, and the triviality of the detail which the form necessitates, were some of the main targets of Fielding's parody. Richardson would continue to be a target of Fielding's first novel, but the Pamela phenomenon was just one example of what he saw as a culture of literary abuses in the mid-18th century. Colley Cibber, poet laureate and mock-hero of Pope's Dunciad, is identified in the first chapter of the novel as another offender against propriety, morality and literary value. The impetus for the novel, as Fielding claims in the preface, is the establishment of a genre of writing "which I do not remember to have been hitherto attempted in our language", defined as the "comic epic-poem in prose": a work of prose fiction, epic in length and variety of incident and character, in the hypothetical spirit of Homer's lost (and possibly apocryphal) comic poem Margites. He dissociates his fiction from the scandal-memoir and the contemporary novel. Book III describes the work as biography. As becomes apparent from the first few chapters of the novel in which Richardson and Cibber are parodied mercilessly, the real germ of Joseph Andrews is Fielding's objection to the moral and technical limitations of the popular literature of his day. But while Shamela started and finished as a sustained subversion of a rival work, in Joseph Andrews Fielding merely uses the perceived deprivation of popular literature as a springboard to conceive more fully his own philosophy of prose fiction.Francis Bedford (18 June 1799 - 8 June 1883) was an English bookbinder. Bedford was born at Paddington, London, on 18 June 1799; his father is believed to have been a courier attached to the establishment of George III. At an early age he was sent to school in Yorkshire, and on his return to London his guardian, Henry Bower of 38 Great Marlborough Street, apprenticed him in 1817 to a bookbinder named Haigh, in Poland Street, Oxford Street. Only a part of his time was served with Haigh, and in 1822 he was transferred to a binder named Finlay, also of Poland Street, with whom his indentures were completed. At the end of his apprenticeship Bedford entered the workshop of one of the leading bookbinders of the day, Charles Lewis, of 35 Duke Street, St. James's, with whom he worked until the death of his employer, and subsequently managed the business for Lewis's widow. Bedford attracted the notice of William Bentinck, 4th Duke of Portland, who became a patron and friends. In 1841 Bedford, who had by then left Mrs. Lewis's establishment, entered into partnership with John Clarke of 61 Frith Street, Soho, who had a reputation for binding books in tree-marbled calf. Clarke and Bedford carried on their business in Frith Street until 1850, when the partnership was dissolved. Bedford respected margins, and was a skillful mender of damaged leaves. Many of his productions were imitations of the major French bookbinders of past centuries, for example the bindings of Samuel Rogers's Poems and Italy, of which he bound several copies in Morocco inlaid with colored leathers and covered with gold tooling in the style of Antoine Michel Padeloup.Condition:Rebacked retaining original back-strips, few small stains on covers, contents toned with scattered light foxing, point bumped and rubbed else a very good set.

        A Present for an Apprentice: or, a Sure Guide To gain both Esteem and Estate; With Rules for his Conduct to his Master, and in the World. By a late Lord Mayor of London.

      London: No publisher, 1742 - Duodecimo gathered and signed in half sheets (140 x 92 mm). Recent grey paper boards, title label to front board printed in black. With the 3-page contents issued at the rear repositioned after the title page. Trimmed in the binding process, a very good copy. Early edition of the politician's compendium of practical hints on everyday subjects, first published in 1740 at the height of his reputation. Barnard (c.1685-1764) was elected lord mayor in 1737. A Present for an Apprentice is in the form of a lengthy letter addressed to the writer's son, and is "imbued with strong Christian moralizing" (ODNB). It is the only work which can be confidently attributed to Barnard.

        Chorographia Britanniae

      London: (1742-[c.46]). Octavo (170 x 105 mm.), full modern blind panelled mottled calf. With raised bands, ornate blind decoration to compartments, red calf gilt titled label to spine. Engraved double page title with minor crease, engraved double page dedication and 53 double page plates numbered 1-50 which include 7 tables, 6 general and 40 county maps. Engraved throughout and in fine full early wash colour. Some centrefold restoration to the chart of England and Wales, some loss to margin of Cornwall reinstated, Lancashire and Lincolnshire restored and some minor centrefold splits repaired, otherwise a reasonable example in a rare form.; This is an example of the 'Chorographia Britannia' in full early wash colour. First published in 1742 this is a later edition bearing the revised imprint of John Clark on the title page. He had joined Charles Hitch and William Henry Toms in the ownership of the atlas by November 1745 when a newly worded advert was placed in the 'Evening Post'. Clark died in April 1746 and was succeeded by his wife Anne. It is the first pocket size English county atlas published in the eighteenth century. It is surprising it took so long for one to be published considering the runaway success of the 'Britannia Depicta' of 1720. Two similar atlases were to be published shortly after, the 'Geographia Magnae Britanniae' by Thomas Osborne, 1748, and the 'Small English Atlas' by Thomas Kitchin and Thomas Jefferys, 1749.

      - Set of 52 antique prints, on 22 sheets. Untitled. The collected etched works of Karel Dujardin. This includes all his charming animal and landscape etchings (which show horses, donkeys, cows, goats and sheep). The animals are always placed within Italianate landscapes.

A complete collection of all 52 etchings including the original wrapper! Etching on hand laid (verge) paper, with watermark of J. Dupuy, Auvergne 1742 (Churchill 515).

Karel Dujarin (1622-1678) was a Dutch Golden Age painter and etcher. He spent two extensive periods in Italy, and his work is heavily influenced by this.

Condition: A very good set, given age. Two of the sheets have a stain in the right edge (affecting the image). One of the sheets has a crease from the right to the lower margin. Other sheets have occasional minor stains in the margins, and slight soiling from handling. Sheets uncut, and with the original binding holes (in left or upper margin). General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling. Please study scan carefully. Storage location: R2-125 TPC The overall size is ca. 16.5 x 10.6 inch.

Although 's Gravesande was by no means the first semipupular exponent of Newtonian science and the experimental method, his 'Mathematical Elements of Physics' was easily the most influential book of its kind, at least before 1750 . The strength of his exposition was in his perfection of the method of justifying scientific truths either by self-evidence or by appeal to experimental verification, perfected by him through the design of many new instruments (DSB V, 510). - Bierens de Haan 1806; Sotheran 1627: "Last and best edition". - Unbeschnitten.

The dedication is to the opposition reformer Lord Talbot, to whom Fielding recommends Aristophanes as one who "exerted that Genius in the Service of his Country." A footnote to Act II, scene 5, references Fielding's distaste towards those who abandoned their opposition to Walpole when he was made Lord Ormond, following his resignation in 1742: "To make use of popular interest, and the character of patriotism, in order to betray one's country, is perhaps the most flagitious of all Crimes" (p. 57). Uncommon on the market, with the last copy sold at auction in 1982 according to ABPC. Cross III, p. 307.
