CAPPER, James.
XXVIII, 29-234 pp.First edition of a rare geographical and meteorological treatise on the winds and weather in different places around the world, written by James Capper (1743-1825). Capper was a former colonel in the East India Company, but after his return to England, he devoted much of his time to meteorology. In his present Observations of the winds and monsoons, Capper especially concentrates on the winds and weather of the East Indies, the coast of India and the Arabian and Persian Gulf, using information he obtained by his own observations, some ships' logs and earlier publications. He also discusses the meteorology of the Mediterranean, including Greece and the climate between the Adriatic and the Archipelago. Capper also introduces a new hypothesis in this work, namely that hurricanes are a type of whirlwind. With the bookplate, stamps and inscription of Francis Druce on the front pastedown, recto and verso of the first free endpaper and the title-page. Bookbinder's label on verso of the first endpaper: "Jullion, Westminster Bridge". Slight foxing. Covers slightly rubbed. Otherwise in good condition.l Lowndes, p. 369.

Seligmann (1720-1762) brought these materials together and engraved the illustration plates and two of the frontispieces. The book is especially strong for American and Asian birds. The parts and plates were published in instalments and while many copies lack the whole of part 9, the present copy includes the plates and accompanying leaves of text of this part up to plate XXIV. It further includes one (uncoloured) plate, a portrait of an indigenous North American man, not recorded in the literature, though engraved by Seligmann.With 2 tears in the folding map, almost entirely in the sea, but generally in very good condition.

BURTIN, François-Xavier.
[2], 152 pp.First and only edition of a careful study on fossils discovered in the region of Brussels by François-Xavier de Burtin (1743-1818). "Apparently, the first extensive book treating Belgium fossils and minerals" (Schuh). Burtin accurately describes fossil fishes, tortoises, echinoderms, worms, etc. and gives an analysis of the geological composition of the soils around Brussels. These descriptions are accompanied by fine illustrations, engraved in brown and coloured by hand, by A. Pris, J.A. Balconi, etc., after M. J. Speeckaert, Daveaux, etc. The author studied medicine and natural sciences. He was doctor to Prince Charles de Lorraine, and was later appointed to the ruling council of the Netherlands, because of his excellent scientific work. With the arrival of the political upheavals of the latter part of the 18th century, he retired from public life to concentrate on science and writing. His interests were wide-ranging, and, in addition to geology, he wrote on agriculture and industry and was considered an authority on pictures, particularly the Dutch and Flemish schools.The title-page slightly soiled and some occasional foxing in the margins, otherwise in good condition and wholly untrimmed.

En Madrid, En la Oficina de Blas Román, año 1792. Primer libro: Portada (algo cansada) - 13 hojas y 375 pp. a doble columna. Segundo libro: 270 pp. Ejemplar cansado. = "García Cabero, Francisco (1685-1754). Veterinario español, nacido en Cobeña, Madrid, en 1685, y fallecido también en Madrid, en 1754. Fue el albéitar de más prestigio de la España del siglo XVIII. En su producción científica podemos distinguir un aspecto de polemista y otro de profesional. El primero fue puramente coyuntural, mientras que el segundo tuvo una pervivencia de más de un siglo: todavía en 1882 se editaron sus Instituciones de 1740. Su gran prestigio se debió a la publicación de las Instituciones, obra que refleja el estado cultural de la albeitería y los métodos de enseñanza y examen para conseguir la titulación. Se ha dicho de ella que era un manual para preparar los exámenes de albeitería. Se divide en seis libros, con un capítulo teórico donde se define la albeitería y otros aspectos generales. Los demás capítulos son los comunes en un tratado sobre la materia. El libro sexto está destinado a la anatomía y representa la parte más pobre y confusa." Emili Balaguer Perigüell Size: 2 Vols.

Fargue-- Maria Margaretha de la
GROENTEMARKT TE DEN HAAGTekening met potlood, aquarel en gouache toegeschreven (door Charles Dumas van het RKD) aan Maria Margaretha de la Fargue (1743-1813).Maria de la Fargue leerde tekenen en schilderen van haar broers Paulus Constantijn (1729-1782) en Jacob Elias (1735-1776?), die op hun beurt vermoedelijk autodidact waren.Zij maakte vooral genretaferelen, soms ook straatsc?nes en een enkele keer portretten en stadsgezichten. Haar werk is dan ook minder nadrukkelijk topografisch dan dat van haar broers, van wie vele, vooral Haagse stadsgezichten bekend zijn.Jarenlang vormden Maria en haar broers Paulus, Jacob en Karel (1738-1793) een soort familieatelier, met Paulus als drijvende kracht. Zij maakten onder meer prenten voor de verkoop en illustraties voor boeken en almanakken.Tentoonstelling: Dordrecht 1983/84, "Krabbels en Tekeningen", 19e eeuwse aquarellen en tekeningen van de nationale collectie, met 29 tekeningen van de collectie van Hans van Leeuwen, cat. no. 15 (als J.A.

Het Pluimspel, tekening met gewassen inkt van de hand van Johan Hendrik Keller, gesigneerd en gedateerd 1743 op de sokkel onder de vaas rechts. Afm. 24 x 27 cm.In het begin van de eerste eeuw was badminton erg populair in China. Hier werd geslagen met geldstukken waaraan dan kippenveren bevestigd waren. In de 16e eeuw werd het vooral door kinderen in Engeland gespeeld. Een eeuw later had het spelletje zich verspreidt over diverse Europese landen waar het door de rijkeren beoefend werd. Het bestond er simpelweg uit dat een shuttle over en weer werd geslagen zonder de grond te raken. In Frankrijk heette het spel ?Jeu de longue plume?.Omstreeks 1873 werd het (inmiddels met een shuttle van kurk en 16 ganzenveren) beoefend op landgoed Badminton van de hertog van Beaufort in Gloucestershire. Ons moderne spel dankt er zijn naam aan.Johan Hendrik Keller II (1692-1765) was een schilder en tekenaar van Zwitserse afkomst. Vanaf 1726 is hij werkzaam in Den Haag. Daar genoot hij bekendheid om zijn surports en muurschilderingen in Franse stijl met voorstellingen van herders en putti. Hij had ook opdrachtgevers in Amsterdam en Rotterdam en er hangt werk van hem in Huis Doorn en Huis ten Bosch.Prijs: Euro 7.500,- (incl. lijst).

Jacob Robinson, 1743. AUTHOR John Bulkeley and John Cummins TITLE A Voyage to the South-Seas, in the Years 1740-1. Containing a faithful Narrative of the Loss of his Majesty's Ship the Wager.. PLACE OF PUBLICATION London PUBLISHER Jacob Robinson PUBLICATION DATE 1743, First Edition FORMAT Hardback ORIGINAL COVER PRICE three shillings and six-pence PAGINATION xx, 220 DIMENSIONS height 20.1 cm x width 12.6 cm DESCRIPTION : Bound in modern half leather over marbled boards, red morocco spine label. This journal is one of the principal accounts of the Wager, which was wrecked off the southern coast of Chile after rounding Cape Horn. Under the command of Captain Cheap, the Wager was one of Anson's fleet, which was on its way to harass the Spanish. After the wreck, gunner John Bulkeley and carpenter John Cummins conducted the mutinous part of the crew until they arrived safely in Rio de Janeiro. Much of the adventure and interest of the account is in the description of their travails passing through the Strait of Magellan in a longboat.

George de la Fay "publizierte 1743 in den Berichten der Pariser Chirurgenakademie den 1733 von ihn ausgeführten Verschluss einer doppelten Lippen-Kiefer-Gaumenspalte bei einem vierjährigen Kind - mit vielleicht erstmaliger- Erhaltung der Prämaxilla". Hoffmann-Axthelm First Edition of the paper by Georges de la Faye appeared 200 years after the operation described by Pierre Franco, the medieval barber surgeon-about half way between Franco's time and our time. De la Faye's description are of double cleft lips, in contrast to the more simple cleft lib described by Franco.. Curiously, de la Faye was puzzled by the presence of a tooth-bearing premaxilla in the double cleft in his first patient he attempted to solve that problem excising the offering bone and bringing the two lateral segments of the lip together behind the prolabium-not an easy task. In his second case he was more circumspect and the attached the lateral segments to the prolabium using the later as the central portion of the repaired lip. His description of this all was in the Volume I if the earliest surgical journal extant and after his description of his first two cases he goes on to describe several other cleft lip repairs during the early 1700's in the Paris area-including one by de lay Peyronie, done at Compiegne. -cf.

Einband aus voll gesprenkeltem braunem Schafleder. Verzierter nervöser Rücken. Titelstück des roten Marokko. 3 stumpfe Ecken. Dunkle Flecken auf dem Geschirr. Diskrete Restaurationen, Zeitbindung. 1742 veröffentlichte Rousseau ein Projekt über neue Zeichen der Musik (1742), in dem er vorschlug, das als zu komplex angesehene System der Notenschrift zu revolutionieren. Die Royal Academy of Sciences wird zögern, weshalb Rousseau durchhält und dann seine Dissertation über moderne Musik vollständiger und theoretischer anbietet. Rousseau entschuldigt sich daher in seinem Vorwort für sein Notationssystem, das das alte ersetzen soll: "Es ist leicht durch Erfahrung zu rechtfertigen, dass man mit meiner Methode Musik in zwei- und dreimal kürzerer Zeit lernt als nach der gewöhnlichen Methode, dass die von ihr ausgebildeten Musiker sicherer sind als die anderen mit gleicher Wissenschaft, und dass ihre Einrichtung schließlich so ist, dass man immer mit der beginnen muss, wenn man sich an gewöhnliche Musik halten möchte meins, um das zu erreichen, sicherer und in kürzerer Zeit. " Am Ende der Arbeit gibt Rousseau das Beispiel des Menuetts von Dardanus de Rameau in der neuen Notation.

William Shakespeare
Printed at the Theatre. The Works of William Shakespear The First Hamner Edition 1743-1744 Oxford: Printed at the Theatre, 1743-1744. Quarto. First edition of Hanmer's six volume set; first edition thus. Bound in contemporary speckled boards ruled in gilt, spines very neatly rebacked. Binding lightly rubbed and worn, though solid; corners softened and instances of leather lifting from boards. Previous ownership bookplates and notations to front endsheets. Spot of wear to bottom textblock edge of Volume VI. Light worming. Sir Thomas Hanmer, a British politician who served as Speaker of the House of Commons, based this set on Pope's 1725 edition. Though Hanmer's editorial treatment left some critics wanting, the merits of this edition were readily apparent in its stunning typography and 36 copper engravings by Francis Hayman and Hubert Gravelot. Originally printed in a small run, it proved to be very popular and commercially successful. Additionally, this Hanmer edition marked the first time Shakespeare's plays were printed at the University Press at Oxford. [Attributes: First Edition]

Full late 18th-century blue crushed morocco gilt. A fine set in dark blue morocco of "one of the most important of all bird books, both as a fine bird book and a work of ornithology" (Fine Bird Books). "Though issued separately, they [Natural History and Gleanings] are considered as one and either must rank as imperfect without the other … At its date of issue the Natural History and Gleanings was one of the most important of all bird Books, both as a Fine Bird Book and a work of Ornithology. It is still high on each list …" (Sitwell). George Edwards (1694-1773), a talented natural history artist, became librarian at the College of Physicians through the good offices of Sir Hans Sloane, who also employed him to draw the curiosities in his private museum. This provided him with both a steady income and plenty of time (his tasks not being very onerous), to pursue his own interests whilst surrounded by volumes on natural history.

Des Castes Indiennes.Karaikal, 11 April [1743]. 4to (ca. 24 x 18,5 cm). Written in dark brown manuscript ink on beige laid paper. Blue mottled stiff paper wrappers. [23], [1 blank] pp. French manuscript, written in Karaikal (French India since 1739), which gives a detailed explanation of the Indian caste system, on which - as the author explains in the beginning of the text - the French people are ill-informed. To illustrate the Indian caste system, the anonymous author gives lively anecdotes, comparisons with French social classes and parallels to biblical stories. The author not only describes the details of the four castes (Brahmin, Raj, Vaisya and Sudra) including their hierarchy and advantages, the purpose of this social structure and the experience of those who lose their caste. He goes further and gives a moral speculation on the way different cultures criticizing each other. He argues that all nations criticize each other in some way, because the habits of cultures simply differ and they all have their own good reasons for that. He also wrote upon to what extent the customs of Indian people, for example the beliefs surrounding cows, are superstitious. He concludes that not all their customs are superstitious. This document shows us someone who looks with a certain gentleness to the Indian cultural practices.It is assumable that this manuscript was written by an Frenchman, likely a French missionary who was tasked with reporting the challenges of facing Christianity in India.

Set in roman and italic types with extensive Hebrew, incidental fraktur, Greek (2 sizes) and Arabic, and one 3-letter word in Samaritan. Contemporary gold-tooled sprinkled tanned sheepskin, each board with the Diesbach Belleroche coat of arms, probably a son of Nicolas de Diesbach Belleroche (1668-1735) in Switzerland. [30], 501, [84], [1 blank] pp. Second edition of Albert Schultens's renowned grammar of biblical Hebrew. Schultens (1686-1750), known as the father of comparative Semitic philology, taught Hebrew at Franeker and Leiden. He wrote extensively on the relationship between Hebrew and other Semitic languages, claiming that Arabic and Hebrew were "twin sisters". He used Arabic to interpret obscure Hebrew passages in the Bible. Schultens's extensive grammar was one of the most influential Hebrew grammars of the 18th century. Slightly browned and foxed, but otherwise in very good condition and only slightly trimmed (preserving an occasional deckle). The gold of the spine and edges was not well bonded and has been largely lost. The binding shows a few small worm holes, small cracks in the spine and other minor damage, but is still good.

Although the only kings named in the text are the biblical Kings David and Solomon, who both succumbed to the temptations of women, and the sermon is built around Solomon's Proverbs VII:19-21, it is certainly not coincidence that it was delivered and published in England in 1740, the year King George II granted a life peerage to his mistress Amalie von Wallmoden of Hanover, creating her Countess of Yarmouth. Any English reader would certainly understand that this was the "Royal folly" of the title, even though King George is never named in the text. The sermon also minces no words in putting ninety percent of the blame on women and presenting the men as their victims.With a few marginal water stains and the edges of the leaves slightly tattered, but still in very good condition and wholly untrimmed. The wrappers are tattered at the edges and the front and back have separated at the fold of the spine, but they still reveal the pamphlet's … [Click Below for Full Description]

One notes that Adriaan Reynesteyn made the present copy on 29 October 1743 and many, but not all, appear to be in the same hand.On 5 pages the last letter or number of some lines has been shaved, but can still be read.

Orazio della Penna de Billi, Francesco]
Cervera: En la Imprenta de Thomas Senant, vive a la Plaza Mayor., 1743. 4to, 19.5 x 14.5 cm., pp.12. Text in Spanish. A very good disbound copy. An apparently unrecorded edition of the description of the Tibetan mission of Francesco Orazio, Capucin missionary to Tibet who became prefect of the mission, published in the Catalan city of Cervera. Francesco Orazio (1680-1745) was born in Pennabilli, and entered the Capucin monastery of Pietrarubbia in 1700. Three years later while he was undergoing his ecclesiastical training, the Sacra Congregazione di Propaganda Fide decreed the establishment of a mission in Tibet to be undertaken by the fathers from Piceno in the Marches. Excited by the prospect Orazio was one of the first to apply and his petition was granted. The first missionaries left Italy in 1704 reaching Lhasa in June 1707. Father Orazio followed in the autumn of 1712 with the second wave, and reached Lhasa by 1716. He settled in the Sera monastery with the Jesuit father Ippolito Desideri to study the Tibetan language. A learned Lama was assigned to teach them and they had access to the monastery's library. While there Father Orazio began a Tibetan-Italian dictionary, based on literary texts, which, by 1732, contained 33,000 words. It was completed by Giorgi some years later in Rome. He translated a number of literary works, and as a fluent speaker he was on good terms with the Dalai Lama. He returned to Rome in 1736 and with the help of Cardinal Belluga was able to re-organize the mission on a financially sound basis, and to set up a Tibetan language press with f … [Click Below for Full Description]
