        A Voyage to the South Seas, in the Years 1740-1

      London: Jacob Robinson, 1743. Covers repaired. A good copy.. Octavo, in contemporary sprinkled sheep. First edition of one of the classic stories of shipwreck survival: the loss of the Wager.This famous account jointly written by the gunner and the carpenter on the Wager describes the wreck of the ship, one of Anson's fleet, off the coast of Chile, the survivors' life on shore, and their subsequent voyage in a longboat through the Straits of Magellan to Rio de Janeiro. As Spate has remarked, 'For wild drama, or melodrama, very few tales of the sea can match this of the Wager'.Like Anson's official account of the full expedition this was a popular book and went through a number of editions. There were two editions in the first year of publication, one as here giving the authors' names on the title-page and the other anonymously published.

        Premier Livre de Sonates a Violon Seul avec la Basse Continue... Dediées A Monsieur Bonnier Tresorier Général des Etats de Languedoc. Il y a quelqu'unes de ces Sonates qui peuvent ce jouer sur la Flute Traversiere. Prix en blanc 15th

      Paris: L'Auteur.. L Ve. Boivin... Le Sr. Leclerc... La Ve. Roussel... Abec Privilège du Roy, 1743. Leclair, considered the founder of the French violin school and one of the greatest violinists of the period, was a pupil of G.B. Somis, who himself was a pupil of Corelli. His 48 solo sonatas, comprising the four books of Opp. 1, 2, 5 and 9, contain some of his finest compositions. "Going to Paris in 1723, Leclair came under the patronage of one of the richest men in France, Joseph Bonnier, while he prepared his op.1 for publication. These sonatas were recognized for their originality and, according to one contemporary, they 'appeared at first a kind of algebra capable of rebuffing the most courageous musicians'. Another wrote: 'Le Clair est le premier qui sans imiter rien, Créa du beau, du neuf, qu'il peut dire le sien' ('Le Clair is the first person who, without imitating anything, created beautiful and new things, which he could call his own')." Neal Zaslaw in Grove Music Online. "Leclair's melodies evince a high degree of creative force, whether short or long, plain or ornamental. International influences are often clearly present - traits of his immediate French predecessors, of Bach, and Handel, of Vivaldi... Leclair's fine, careful craftsmanship is also apparent in the sensitive, varied harmony, both diatonic and chromatic; in some nicely planned dynamic markings; and in the polyphonic writing." Newman: The Sonata in the Baroque Era, pp. 382-383.. Folio. Newly bound in full light tan calf, raised bands on spine in gilt-ruled compartments, dark red calf title label gilt. Premier Livre: 1f. (recto title, verso blank), 1f. (recto "Avertissement," verso blank), 75, [i] ("Catalogue des Oeuvres de M. Leclair" listing 13 works, "Ier." - "XIIIe." ). First Edition, fifth issue.

Louise Roussel. le prix est de 15th en blanc. Paris: l'Auteur... Le Sr. Boivin... Le Sr. Leclerc... Avec Privilège du Roi [after 1743]. 1f.

        A Single Plate, Musculorum Tabula IX from Tabulae sceleti et musculorum corporis humani

      [Leiden: Joannem & Hermannum Verbeek, 1743]. From the first edition of one of the greatest of all Anatomical Atlases. Tabula IX, which features Albinus and Wandelaar's famous "Muscle Man", a skinned figure whose musculature is visible and defined, as viewed in walking profile with the left arm raised and the right foot forward, his head is turned slightly away from the viewer. Elephant folio, 620 by 475 mm, single folio sheet, now mounted with the use of none-evasive corner tabs and protected by mylar. Very well preserved, fully intact with only the most minor evidence of age. ONE OF THE MAGNIFICENT PLATES FROM "AMONG THE MOST ARTISTICALLY PERFECT OF ANATOMICAL ATLASES..." Wandelaar placed his skeletons and musclemen against lush ornamental backgrounds to give them the illusion of vitality, using contrasts of mass and light to produce a three-dimensional effect. The most famous plate in the atlas depicts a skeletal figure standing in front of an enormous grazing rhinoceros, sketched by Wandelaar from the first living specimen in Europe, which had arrived at Amsterdam zoo in 1741" (Norman). The plates in this large folio work, and in the four supplementary works in large folio with which it is bound, are unsurpassed for their cool, elegant aesthetic and scientific accuracy. They were drawn and engraved by Jan Wandelaer, a pupil of the engravers Jacob Fokema and Guillem van der Gouwen, and the painter Gerard de Lairesse, who prepared the drawings for Bidloo's atlas. Prior to working for Albinus Wandelaer worked for Friedrik Ruysch. Albinus, however, provided Wandelaar with the opportunity for the full expression of his talents as a draftsman and engraver. In an attempt to increase the scientific accuracy of anatomical illustration, Albinus and Wandelaar devised a new technique of placing nets with square webbing at specified intervals between the artist and the anatomical specimen and copying the images using the grid patterns. Wandelaer placed each figure in a carefully chosen landscape setting, and the artistic results are so pleasantly successful that the anatomical figures, although composed of many separate parts, appear to be actually stepping out of the picture.

        Keuren van 't Vrye en 't Leenhof tot Sluys in Vlaanderen. Anno 1743. [Sluis (in Zeeland), 1743]. Folio (33 x 21 cm). Manuscript written in Dutch, in brown ink on paper, with the coat of arms of the district Vrije van Sluis on the title-page coloured by a contemporary hand in opaque gouaches and gold. Contemporary tanned sheepskin, gold-tooled spine.

      A manuscript compiled in 1743, at least partly by Adriaan Reynesteyn (b. ca. 1700?), born, married and living in Sluis, transcribing ten extensive manuscripts (and adding two indexes) containing official documents of the district known as Het Vrije van Sluis, in southwestern Zeeland on what is now the Dutch-Belgian border. The manuscripts transcribed range in date from 1542 to 1695 and record the district's statutes, ordinances, regulations for the division and inheritance of land, rules of litigation, remuneration of district officials for various services, and feudal, customary and common law. At the end of each section, the compiler gives the date and source of the original manuscript, the name of the registrar who signed the original and often the names of the burgomasters and other officials. 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. Otherwise in very good condition, with only some small worm holes in the head of the gutter margin in the first few quires. The binding is scuffed and has a few tears. A wealth of important material for the history of the district Het Vrije van Sluis in Zeeland.

      [France], 1743. Hardcover. Very Good. 4to manuscript on paper [297 x 173 mm]. (2) pp., 384 pp, (4) pp. Bound in contemporary vellum over boards, manuscript title on spine, remnants of ties, red sprinkled edges. Some joint separation at head and tail of upper cover, minor rubbing, some staining and scoring to the covers. Narrow margins with edge occasionally touching a letter but with no loss of text, a few minor stains, otherwise excellently preserved and perfectly legible throughout. Unpublished autograph manuscript by the French nobleman and traveller Louis de Chancel de Lagrange (1678-1747) documenting his extraordinary world travels between 1692 and 1704. Lagrange provides an eyewitness account of the groundbreaking 1698-1700 trading expedition to Canton made by the frigate L'Amphitrite, considered the "the first voyage of the French to China" (p. 207; see also Lach and Van Kley, p. 104), as well as first-hand information concerning Louis XIV's various military campaigns during the Nine Years' War (1688-1697), including accounts of the Siege of Namur (1692) and the Raid on Cartagena (1697). Over the nearly 400 closely written pages of his manuscript Lagrange also provides insider knowledge on current politics, court intrigue, and the like, all the while carefully describing the architecture, natural setting, and inhabitants of the some 200 towns and cities he visited in Europe, the Americas, Africa, and Asia. Lagrange, a native of Périgueux, begins his manuscript with an account of his early childhood, noting that unlike his older brother, François Joseph Lagrange-Chancel (1677-1758), the child-prodigy dramatist once thought to be the next Racine, he struggled with formal education, preferring to make paper boats over reading books and drafting essays (p. 1). Sent to Paris at the age of twelve to serve as a page in the household of Marie Anne de Bourbon, daughter of Louis XIV and his mistress Louise de La Vallière, Lagrange soon lost his "Gascogne accent" (p. 5) and was tutored under the finest masters of mathematics, geography, science, drawing and dance. Not yet sixteen years old, Lagrange joined the navy in 1694, taking part in Louis XIV's Catalonia campaign (1694), battling Spain in the Azores (1696), and in the West Indies privateering at the Siege of Cartagena (1697), with the latter engagement extensively described (pp. 119-151) both in terms of military matters and of the layout, inhabitants and customs of the city itself (Saint-Domingue and Havana are also discussed)............. * Paul Pelliot, "L'origine des relations de la France et de la Chine: Premier voyage de 'l'Amphitrite' en Chine," Journal de savants, (1928) pp. 433-51 and (1929) pp. 110-25, 252-67, and 289-98; E.

        Explication des moyens proposes pour faciliter la construction du canal de Provence; et des diverses manieres de s'interesser dan cette enterprise

      Aix: chez la veuve de Joseph David and Esprit David, 1743. First edition, the only printing of this description and justification of and financing plan for a canal from the Rhone to Aix and from Aix to Marseille, 8vo, pp. [iv], 94; contemporary vellum-backed blue marbled boards, light wear to extremities, worming to upper corner of nearly all pages, crudely repaired but rarely affecting the text. This canal in France occupied the author's efforts through 1750 and is the subject of one earlier and two later pamphlets. The principle object of the project was to facilitate the transport of hemp, vegetables, and lumber. A hydraulic engineer by profession, Floquet reviews the fate of other attempts and sets out his method for overcoming the daunting physical obstacles. Almost 80 pages are devoted to three different schemes for financing and administering canal construction and operation. No copy is recorded in NUC; 2 copies in OCLC: Oklahoma and the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek in Germany.

        Ara Antica

      1743 - Acquaforte, bulino e puntasecca, firmata in lastra in basso a sinistra. Esemplare nel terzo stato di quattro. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta coeva priva di filigrana, con pieni margini, in ottime condizioni. Dalla serie "Opere Varie di Architettura Prospettive Grotteschi Antichità Inventate ed incise da Giambattista Piranesi Architetto Veneziano". Opere Varie Prima pubblicazione del giovane artista, appena giunto a Roma. Il risultato è un’opera non del tutto unitaria, caratterizzata dalla notevole differenza stilistica tra le tavole, ma dal grande fascino e che lascia intuire e prevedere i futuri sviluppi artistici del Piranesi. Il lavoro continua una tradizione di un modello ormai affermato, che prevedeva il capriccio e la veduta, la scenografia ed il trattato di architettura; in seguito, analizzando la biografia dell’artista, si comprenderà come soprattutto essere lo sbocco di una crisi dell’architetto causata da un itinerario interiore vissuto con intensità, il frutto dello scontro di una mente legata alla cultura veneziana, erede della poesia delle rovine evocata da Marco Ricci e ripresa dal Bellotto e dal Canaletto, e la nuova cultura architettonica che si andava formando nel giovane Piranesi. Prima parte di Architetture e le successive fantasie architettoniche che la continuano costituiscono un passo decisivo verso lo scopo che egli si prefiggeva nella prefazione dell’opera: far si che il capriccio architettonico liberasse l’architettura dalle catene del mondo materiale e sociale per farne un’arte veramente liberale. Immediato fu il successo di pubblico dell’opera. La prima stesura è databile al 1743, e venne dedicata a Nicola Giobbe, grande impresario al servizio della Camera Apostolica e protettore del giovane architetto veneziano. In seguito la stessa fu inserita in un più ampio discorso, che comprendeva anche i Capricci, e pubblicata con alcune varianti con il nome di Opere Varie di Architettura Prospettive Grotteschi Antichità Inventate ed incise da Giambattista Piranesi Architetto Veneziano edita da Giovanni Bouchard nel 1750. Etching, engraving and drypoint. Example of the third state of four. From "Opere Varie di Architettura Prospettive Grotteschi Antichità Inventate ed incise da Giambattista Piranesi Architetto Veneziano". A fine impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, with wide margins, light foxing otherwise perfect condition. Opere Varie This is the first publication by the young artist, who had just arrived in Rome. The outcome is not entirely unitary, characterised by noticeable stylistic differences between plates, but is endowed with great charm and already bestows a glimpse on Piranesi's future artistic development. This work followed established traditional models, which included caprices, views, scene paintings and architectural treatises. However, if one analyses the artist's biography, this work can be interpreted as the outcome of a crisis in his role as an architect and of an intensely lived internal conflict. Summarising, the consequence of a contrast between a mentality still associated with Venetian culture, heir to the poetry of ruins evoked by Marco Ricci and upheld by Bellotto and Canaletto, and the new architectural erudition which was beginning to develop in Piranesi, the First Part of Architectures., together with the imaginary architectural compositions which follow it, are an important step toward the objective which he strove for in the introduction to this work: to utilise the architectural caprice as a means to free architecture from the chains of the material world and society in order to transform it into a truly liberal art. The popular success of this program was immediate. As we have written before, the first version of this work dates from 1743 and was dedicated to Nicola Giobbe, an important impresario at the service of the Apostolic Chamber, who was also the young Venetian architect's benefactor. At a later time, it was inserted into a larger collection which als [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
