        Nouvelle relation de la France équinoxale, contenant la description des côtes de la Guiane; de l'isle de Cayenne; le commerce de cette colonie; les divers changemens arrivés dans ce pays

      First edition. A finely illustrated work on Cayenne, a city in French Guyane, north of Brazil, east of Surinam; it was one of the last places to be colonized, considered too poor and hot, until the French settled in the region in 1604. The Portuguese, irritated and determined to enforce the Treaty of Tordesillas, destroyed the settlement, again abandoning the region until the French returned in 1643, only to be thrown out this time by local natives. In 1664 the settlement was finally permanent, although Dutch (1658-64 & 1676) and English (1667) attacks caused it to change hands every now and then. This is possibly one of the best works on Cayenne, and definitely one of the most important from an iconographic point of view. It includes 19 -mostly folding- maps and plates of Indian artefacts, costumes, ethnology, and other subjects relating to the daily life, hunting and fishing methods, agriculture, architecture, and cartography. Barrere (1690 - 1755) was a botanist and doctor, appointed by he King of France and sent to Cayenne in 1722 for a period of three years, in this time he familiarized himself with the natives, flora, fauna, the settlement, natural history, ways of the locals and the adaptation of French colonials. It also contains important details on the cultivation of coffee, cassava and sugar. The work was published several years after Barrere's return, shortly in fast demand for it was widely considered the best work on Guyane. An important provenance: from the recently dispersed library of the ducs de Luynes, Château de Dampierre. Sabin, 3604. Leclerc, 119. European Americana, 743/19.

Die 112 SS. im Anhang enthalten die "Depositio cornuti typographici" (in Versen von Johann Rist und einer Prosafassung), "Erneuerte Ehren-Gedichte auf die Edle freye Kunst der Buchdruckerei" und "Der hochlöblichen Schreibe-Kunst Christliches Ehren-Lob". Das Werk wird meist unter dem Namen von Gessner geführt, es dürfte aber wohl von Johann Georg Hager aus Oberkotzau verfaßt worden sein (siehe die Ausführungen Bogharts zu seiner Nr. 16). Gessner übernahm aus diesem Werk auch die Kupferstiche (diese tragen am Kopf teilweise noch die Verweise auf die entsprechenden Seiten in der Buchdruckerkunst). Nur das Frontispiz und der Heiligenkalender zur S. 353 (der hier jedoch fehlt) wurden neu gestochen. Am Ende unseres Exemplars sind 3 weitere, nicht zum Werk gehörige Kupferstiche aus der Buchdruckerkunst eingebunden, nämlich die Tafeln 26-28 (die letzten beiden doppelblattgroß). - Die Widerdruckseite des Bogens R hier in der von Boghart beschriebenen Hauptvariante. Der "Bericht an den Buchbinder" (Ff 8) sollte von den Buchbindern getilgt werden (was sich durch den korrekten Kustos "Depositi-" auf Ff 7belegen läßt) und wurde deshalb nicht eingebunden. - Wenig gebräunt oder fleckig, wenige Gebrauchsspuren, etwas berieben.

        Carte de l'Isle de la Félicité

      An extraordinarily rare, interesting and decorative map of the "Island of Felicity," sumptuously decorated with a hand-painted decoupage allegorical border. Background The map was designed and printed for l'Ordre de la Félicité. The short-lived Order was a quasi-Masonic secret society established in France in the early 1740s by Louis-Joseph Scipio La Garde, marquis de Chambonas (d. 1765), a known Mason who served as its Grandmaster. The Order was unusual for admitting women as well as men, as well as for its idiosyncratic use of maritime terminology (For example, lodge masters were known as chefs d'escadre, roughly "commodores.") The mixed membership and rather risqué character of some its rituals and vocabulary leave scholars divided about the Order's true character: Was it a genteel society providing conviviality with a gloss of moral improvement, or in fact a haven for libertines given over to debauchery? Much of what is known about the Order comes from pamphlets by journalist Jean-Pierre Moet (1721-1806), who later rose to great heights in the French Masonry but is best remembered today as a translator of Swedenborg. The evidence Moët left is ambiguous. He insisted that the Order was not one "of the bottle and of debauchery," yet some of his descriptions leave one to wonder. "Apart from its arcane rites the main activity of the Order seems to have been feasting, with members participated in regular dinners which they financed jointly.  They were supposed to converse using coded nautical terms, with fines for non-adherence. Moët was quite happy to reproduce a dictionary of this maritime vocabulary, despite its preoccupation not only with banqueting but with sexual innuendo.  There are titillating references to the female anatomy - "promontory" for breasts, "capstan" for thighs, "dry dock" for belly and the like - to say nothing of "reefing the sails" for lifting up a skirt!   The hierarchy of the Order was also referred to with special passwords based on acronyms; "felicitas" for the chefs d'escadre [i.e., Masters of local lodges] seems harmless but for patron salé the acronym is of "Fenouil, Orange, Violette, Thym, Renoncule, Épine-vinette" (Spell it out; it is not polite!)" ("Scandalous Societies: The "Order of Felicity,"" at Rodana: A Blog of 18th-century & Revolutionary French trivia)[1][2] According to one writer, "The initiation consisted in a figurative and allegorical voyage to the Island of Felicity, to which the candidate was supposed to go, and in the course of which he met with dangers and difficulties, which produced suitable remarks from the President, and at length he or she arrived at the desired haven." (A London Brother, "Sketch of the History of the "Loges d'Adoption,"" The Freemason's Monthly Magazine, vol. 1 no. 7 (May 1, 1842), pp. 203-4)[3] Though this ceremony is not alluded to in any of the other secondary sources we examined, it may provide the backdrop for this extraordinary allegorical Carte de l'Isle de la Félicité. The Carte de l'Isle de la Félicité The map depicts a large Island of Felicity, with the Savage (or Wild) Sea to the north and the Favorable Sea to the South. Dominating the island is the fortified castle of Perfect Happiness. Vessels that successfully avoid the Rocks of Caprice, the Banks of Temptation, the Rocks of Prudery and other navigational hazards can anchor at one of the island's several ports (Wealth, Beauty, Complaisance, Virtue, Equality, and of course Felicity), each with its own route to the castle of Perfect Happiness. Once on land, however, the voyagers are still not entirely safe: From the Port of Beauty, for example, the Path of Coquetry leads to a cesspool deep in the forest surrounding the castle of Perfect Happiness. Likewise, one must take care not to wonder off the Road of Talents, lest one become lost in the Swamp of Pleasures. The engraving is sumptuously decorated with a decoupage border painted in watercolor and gold and featuring rococo decorative elements as well as symbols specific to Masonry and the Order of Felicity. The temple at lower left may represent the Temple of Solomon, for example; the hourglass and scythe at right represent the passage of time; and the letter "G" superimposed on a star at upper left is the "G" that appears on Masonic aprons, representing either God or Geometry, the latter considered by Masons to be the highest of sciences. For Masons the anchor at lower right is a Masonic represented well-grounded hope, but it was also adopted by the Order of Felicity as its symbol. The three figures--a Roman soldier, a woman and a king--may refer to the Christian slave Felicity, martyred in the 3rd century AD. At bottom center several putti bear a heraldic emblem with a fleur-de-lis surrounded by three shields on a blue ground, which we have yet to identify. The date and imprint on our map have been obscured by the decoupage border, but J.-C. Bord in (of August 10, 1904) describes a similar map, signed by "Weis. Arg. [i.e., Strasbourg] Fecit" and dated 1743. As described by Bord, the map accompanied a certificate issued in 1745 by Chambonas to one of his "chefs de escadre." Bord did not specify a location, but a 2009 inventory of the Rothschild Collection at Waddesdon Manor lists an impression of the map[4], though with no mention of an accompanying certificate. We have been unable to locate any other examples of the map and find no record of others having appeared on the market. In all, a beautiful, fascinating and extraordinarily rare allegorical map, offering much opportunity for further research.

        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.

        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.

Very attractive, clean, crisp, and well-margined copies overall. 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. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
