        Le premier volume des voyages curieux faits dans diverses provinces, de France, dEspagne, de Flandres et de Loraine lespace de cinquante ans par mess.re Louis de Chancel de Lagrange ancien officier de la marine chevalier de l'ordre royal et militaire ... escrit de sa propre main.

      [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 Unpublished autograph manuscript by the French nobleman and traveller Louis de Chancel de Lagrange (1678-1747) documenting his extraordinary world travels between 1692 and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]

        Seasonable Thoughts on the State of Religion in New England…

      Boston: Rodgers and Fowle, 1743. 8vo, contemporary paneled calf, rebacked, with new endpapers, red morocco label on spine, 424 pp. Lacking upper corner of title page, but not affecting text, binding with some wear, and rubbing, signature on title, mended tear on first leaf, some foxing and aging, especially on title and first leaf. Charles Chauncy (1705-1787) was considered one of the most influential clergymen of his time. He graduated from Harvard in 1721, and became the pastor of the First Church of Boston, where he presided for 60 years. He had an interesting career and published many tracts on important subjects, and even managed to have three wives along the way. He became the leader of the “Old Lights” or liberals in theology, and was also the leader in the opposition to the establishment of an “Anglican bishopric in the American colonies.” During the American Revolution, he supported the cause in his sermons and pamphlets. He is probably best known for this work "Seasonable Thoughts on the State of Religion in New England." DAB Vol.II. Evans 5151.

        A Proposal to Determine our Longitude

      Second edition. 8vo. 200x125mm. pp. unnumbered half-title, (3), folding table and explanatory notes entitled "Lodgitude", 5-160. The contents pages (L1-L2) have, as is usual, been bound after page 152 (the end of the main text) and before the postscript which starts on p154 (153 being blank). Contemporary tan calf with single line gilt border to upper and lower covers. Five raised bands and six compartments with gilt borders. Second compartment has a black morocco label with "Squire On the Longit" tooled in gold. In the centre of both upper and lower covers is a black morocco roundel with a decorative gilt roll. The roundel is divided into four quadrants by crossed gold lines and each quadrant contains a design based on the symbols used by Jane Squire to demonstrate her theories. This use of decoration on the cover relating to the contents of the book is unusual before the nineteenth century and Squire's "Proposal" is an extremely rare example of the practice in the eighteenth century. This is a near-fine binding with a little looseness to the hinges and some minor staining to the foot of the upper and lower covers. The contents are in fine condition with no foxing. There are some very light pencil lines in the margins made by a previous reader to note important points in the text. Overall, this is a very nice copy of a comparatively rare volume. In 1714, Parliament formed a committee for discovering a system of determining longitude. The large prize of £20,000 (about £1.5m today) was won by John Harrison. Jane Squire was the only woman who entered the competition without hiding her sex behind a pseudonym. Squire was born in 1671 and died in 1743 (as this second edition was being published). She is rare in being an educated female mathematician and scientist at a time when women's education was largely ignored altogether. Jane Squire began by writing an eleven page pamphlet in 1731 but it seems that this was largely ignored. Her "Proposal to Determine our Longitude" was a fuller sequel to that pamphlet. The first edition of this work was published in 1741 in English and French. This second edition, in English only, contains the Proposal itself taken from the original pamphlet, together with her correspondence to and from the MPs who served on the longitude committee. In her letters Squire complains how her proposal was not taken seriously and it seems clear that this was, in large part, because she was a woman. Whilst her ideas were never likely to win the competition - even admirers admit that they were impractical - she was undoubtedly the victim of some prejudice and her book is a valuable insight into the experience of women in science in the eighteenth century. Modern scholarship is now taking Squire seriously, not so much for her ideas on longitude, but for her pioneering role as a female scientist and an educated woman.

        Relazione dell'origine della Real Casa di Savoja, delle politiche de' ministri della Corte di Torino, ed altre notizie concernenti il buon governo degli Stati di antica, e nuova conquista.

      S.l. [Venise], s.d., (1743), - in-4, titre, 156 pp. couvertes d'une écriture fine et très lisible (environ 20 lignes par page), basane fauve marbrée, dos lisse muet cloisonné et fleuronné, encadrement de simple filet et dent-de-rat dorés sur les plats avec petits fleurons d'angle, tranches rouges (reliure de l'époque). Bon exemplaire. Il s'agit du rapport diplomatique de fin de mission rédigé par Marco Foscarini (1696-1763) de retour de Turin où il remplit les fonctions d'ambassadeur extraordinaire auprès de Charles-Emmanuel III (1701-1773) de novembre 1740 à mars 1743. Après des études à l'Académie des Nobles de San Francesco Saverio à Bologne, le jeune Foscarini était rentré à Venise. Son manque de ressources personnelles lui fit accepter de petites missions diplomatiques. Ce n'est qu'en 1745, à la suite de l'héritage laissé par un parent éloigné, qu'il put s'investir davantage dans la vie politique de la République, et devenir en 1762 le 117e Doge. Cet état des possessions du Roi de Sardaigne se présente d'un seul tenant, sans division ni repères, mais l'on y retrouve tous les éléments qui formaient l'habitude de ces "relazioni" vénitiennes sur l'état de la maison princière, de la Cour, de l'économie, etc. L'intégralité de ce mémoire a déjà fait l'objet d'une publication par les soins de l'historien piémontais Luigi Cibrario (1802-1870) : on le trouvera aux pp. 91-208 des Relazioni dello Stato di Savoia negli anni 1574, 1670 e 1743 scritti dagli ambasciatori Veneti, données à Turin en 1830, et où le texte de Foscarini complète ceux de Molini et de Bellegno.

        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.

        Traité de dynamique, dans lequel les Loix de l'equilibre & du mouvement des corps sont réduites au plus petit nombre possible, & démontrées d'une maniére nouvelle, & où l'on donne un principe général pour trouver le mouvement de plusieurs corps qui agissent les uns sur les autres, d'une maniére quelconque.

      Paris: Chez David l'aîné, 1743. D'Alembert's principle. First edition of this landmark in the history of mechanics. "This book, D'Alembert's magnum opus, was one of the first to give a unified view of mechanics. It started out from a minimum of principles, one of which came to be named after him." (Landmark Writings in Western Mathematics, ch. 11). ❧ PMM 195; Norman 31; Roberts & Trent 7; Stanitz 56. "The 'Treatise on Dynamics' was d'Alembert's first major book and it is a landmark in the history of mechanics. It reduces the laws of the motion of bodies a law of equilibrium. Its statement that 'the internal for of inertia must be equal and opposite to the forces to produce the acceleration' is still known as d'Alembert's principle.' This principle is applied to many phenomena and, in particular, to the theory of the motion of fluids. It has become useful in the practical solution of many technical and mechanical problems, and is as import for the motion of bodies as is the principle of virtual velocities for their equilibrium" (PMM). "The treatise itself consists of two parts; the first defines the general laws of motion and the equilibrium of bodies, while the second considers the general principles of move¬ment of several bodies acted upon by each other. D'Alembert's work is at least as important as that of Laplace and exceeds the practical and engineering utility of Des¬cartes. In essence, d'Alembert and Coriolis provided engineers with two of the tools necessary to practice their profession." (Roberts & Trent). This work was the foundation for Lagrange's classic book on analytical mechanics which codified the laws governing the motions of any systems of bodies. D'Alembert is also credited with laying to rest, in the Traite, the vis viva controversy by investigating its philosophical basis and dismissing its ontological reality. "In this way d'Alembert was clearly a precursor of positivistic science" (DSB). D'Alembert was the scientific editor of the Encyclopédie, and his preface to the Traité de dynamique sets out his philosophy of science and his recognition of the conceptual revolution catalysed by Newton. 4to (220 x 168 mm), pp [4] xxvi [2] 186 [2] and four folding engraved plates of diagrams, vignette by Duflos on title. Contemporary calf with gilt spine and red spine label, some wear to extremeties, but completely unrestored. Provenance: The Janus Foundation (book plate to front pastedown); T. Blixenstierna (engraved book plate to verso of title).

      - S.n., A Pékin 1743, 4 tomes en 2 Vol. in 12 (8x14cm), (4) XXIV, 274pp. et (4) 238pp., relié. - La prima edizione di questa edizione illustrata risale al 1740, l'edizione originale del testo unico risalente al 1734 A suo frontespizio (l'imperatore cinese e la sua corte), due frontespizi con vignette completamente incisi (satiri) e 4 figure deliziosamente erotico e finemente inciso. Queste stampe hanno una posizione su ciascuno di loro, quello che ha fatto vitello pas.Plein ghiacciata edizione epoca dal 1740. Dorso liscio decorato. Parte del titolo e numero del volume in marocchino rosso. Presenze Volume II livellato; 2 angoli élimées.Ce racconto licenzioso ed erotico ha vinto alla sua uscita un successo, anche se ha causato uno scandalo e che ha accusato l'autore di oscenità, irreligione; alcuni anche visto una critica di Ugénitus bolla (contro il giansenismo) e il cardinale de Rohan, e la vita Crebillon imprigionato dopo le sue accuse. Tanzai è una favola e politico, compresa la stranezza della storia sorprende sempre il lettore, tutta la storia ruota attorno a un enorme giro skimmer oro ... - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] La première parution de cette édition illustrée date de 1740, l'édition originale du texte seul remontant, elle, à 1734. Un frontispice (l'empereur de Chine et sa cour), deux pages de titre entièrement gravées avec vignettes (satyres) et 4 figures délicieusement érotiques et finement gravées. Ces gravures ont un placement sur chacune d'entre elles, ce que l'édition de 1740 n'a pas. Reliure en plein veau d'époque glacé. Dos lisse orné. Pièce de titre et de tomaison en maroquin rouge. Coiffes du tome II arasées ; 2 coins élimées. Ce conte licencieux et érotique, qui vogue sur la mode de l'orientalisme merveilleux, remporta dès sa parution un vif succès, bien qu'il fit scandale et qu'on accusa l'auteur d'obscénité, d'irréligion ; certains y virent même une critique de la bulle Ugénitus (contre le jansénisme) et du cardinal de Rohan, et Crébillon se vit emprisonné à la suite de ses accusations. Tanzaï est un conte féérique et politique, dont l'étrangeté de l'intrigue surprend toujours le lecteur, toute l'histoire tournant autour d'une écumoire en or au manche énorme... En effet l'inventivité fictionnelle s'exhibe sans retenue dans cette oeuvre de Crébillon fils, elle fit écrire à Voltaire en 1735 : "Je ne sais rien de si fou que ce livre. Si je l'avais fait je serais brûlé".

The bibliophile Vincent van Gogh's (1866-1911) copy (with his fine etched bookplate) of a beautiful book of 36 splendid large views of cities, towns, noblemen's estates, and castles in the Dutch province of Zeeland, with an elaborately decorated armorial title-page, first engraved in the years 1654 to 1662 and published by Zacharias Roman in Middelburg. The cities shown include Middelburg, Vlissingen, Goes, Zierikzee, Tholen and Veere. The title appears in an elaborate cartouche with the arms of Zeeland and of these six cities, with allegorical figures and a view of Middelburg with ships. The three views of Middelburg include two different views from the harbour side, one printed from Roman's first plate of ca. 1655, and the other from a plate that replaced it in publications between 1657 and 1660 (the earlier editions therefore included one or the other). The book is rarely found complete, as most copies were broken up and the cherished prints sold individually.Vincent van Gogh, nephew of the famous painter, was an art dealer and well known bibliophile. His copy of the Speculum Zelandia formed part of the final auction of his library in 1918. That auction contained a collection "not large in size but of high quality... one of the finest collections of Dutch books ever to have been amassed in our country" (De la Fontaine Verwey).With the beautiful etched bookplate of Van Gogh (by Marius Bauer), including a knight and two horses and the Van Gogh coat of arms; and a ca. 1900 bookplate of Theodoor Johan Verrijn Stuart (1869-1930). In very good condition and with the margins untrimmed, leaving the deckles intact. Some margins a bit frayed and spotted, a few marginal wormholes not approaching the plate edges, some minor stains in the last plate slightly affecting the image. Vincent van Gogh's copy of a magnificent book of 17th-century Zeeland views.

        Søe-Evolutioner eller En Orlogs-Flodes... Uddragne af P. Paul Hostes Verk: L'art Des armées navales og med endeel Ænmerkninger forbedrede.

      Copenhagen: Ernst Henrich Berling, 1743. Folio, with woodcut headpieces, tailpieces, and initials, engraved allegorical frontispiece and 68 full-page plates, mostly showing various formations, manoeuvring, and engagements of naval fleets; title-page with oval library stamp of "Søe Officerernes Bibliothek Stempel"; a fine, fresh copy in an attractive contemporary calf binding, decorative gilt borders to sides with the cipher of King Christian VII of Denmark at the centre. A wonderful royal copy of this splendid naval work, bound for Christian VII (1749-1808) who ruled as King of Denmark and Norway from 1766. This is the first edition of this important Danish work on naval manoeuvres, based on the French classic L'Art des Armées Navales by Père Paul l'Hoste, first published in Lyons in 1697.'Hoste's book was an immediate success and soon became very well known. It was republished in 1727. Over the course of the eighteenth century several books based on L'Art des Armées Navales were to appear. In 1743 C.F.L. Fontenay, an officer in the Danish Navy, published Søe-Evolutioner eller En Orlogs-Flodes... Although this book relied heavily on L'Art des Armées Navales it is not simply a translation of that work. De Fontenay revised much of the text, omitted many of the mathematical elements of Hoste's original, added much derived from his own experience as a naval officer and had the plates re-engraved...' (Hugh Cahill: see note below).Paul l'Hoste (1652-1700) was a Jesuit who served in the French navy as a chaplain. Despite his higher calling he was a gifted naval strategist who developed a system of tactics based on the single line ahead and the independent action of squadrons, using new ideas such as "doubling" and "breaking the line". His book was 'a standard work on naval tactics, which includes valuable accounts (with many engraved illustrations) of the battles of the Second Dutch War...' (National Maritime Museum Library Catalogue). Instructions are given for the fleet to sail out in an orderly formation, deploy for battle in line or column, retreat, cope with foul weather, and so on. The fine and detailed engravings illustrate how the ships of a fleet should shift from one formation to another.An excellent article on Hoste's book by Hugh Cahill appears in the King's College London "Book of the Month Archive" at www.kcl.ac.uk/depsta/iss/library/speccoll/bomarch/bomarch.html. Joints skilfully repaired.
