        Or, A New General History of Birds. Extracted from the best authorities in various languages, both antient and modern. With remarks and proper observations upon the different species and kinds throughout the known world. from the most curious naturalists, virtuoso's [sic] and travellers. Containing, a description of a great number of curious and uncommon birds, found in different parts of the universe. Illustrated with about four hundred figures. In Two Volumes.

      Printed for Thomas Warren -45 1743 - 2 vols., title-pages and the first page of the Introduction to vol. i printed in black, numerous (somewhat crude) woodcuts in the text, short tear to inner margin of first title-page, 2 other leaves with tears but without loss, occasional browning and marginal staining, pp. xii, [1], [13-] 340; [i], viii, [3-] 314, [6], 12mo, contemporary half calf, rebacked and recased, good. A rather charming, and somewhat rare, little ornithology, possibly intended for children. The 'natural history' is occasionally enlivened with anecdote. The second vol. has in addition in its title: With the methods of breeding, managing and teaching of song- birds. Thomas Warren was a Birmingham bookseller, whose chief claim to fame is being responsible for the publication of Samuel Johnson's translation of Jerome Lobo (1735). Indeed, 'during 1733 Johnson stayed for a time with Warren and began to write for a newspaper which the bookseller had recently set up, entitled the Birmingham Journal. Here some of his first published writing, now lost, made its appearance' (ODNB). In 1743 Warren was declared bankrupt. Vol. ii would appear to be a second edition. ESTC T169325 records 2 vols., 1743-44 (4 copies in the UK, 2 in the US), while ESTC T222816 records vol. 2 dated 1745 on its own (BL and Bodley only). There was a Shrewsbury edition in 1744 (BL only in ESTC).

        DER AUSFUHRLICHEN NACHRICHTEN VON DER KONIGLICH-GROSS- BRITANNISCHEN COLONIE SALTZBURGISCHER EMIGRANTEN IN AMERICA. ERSTER THIEL [WITH SIX ADDITIONAL CONTINUATIONS]

      Halle, 1743. Small quarto. First volume: Contemporary marbled boards. Covers worn and chipped. Titlepage heavily toned, closely trimmed. Minor toning and foxing in text. Second volume, containing five "Continuations": Contemporary three- quarter calf. Binding worn. Text toned and foxed, a few pages with damage. Third volume, containing NEUNTE CONTINUATION: Dbd. Light wear and foxing. Overall in good condition. An extensive collection of these vital sources for the early history of Georgia. This group contains the first part, with the first five Continuations, as well as the ninth Continuation, of these important annual accounts of the Salzburger settlements in Georgia, commonly known as "the Salzburger Tracts." These settlements began when a group of German settlers from Salzburg, fleeing religious persecution at home, accepted the invitation of Gen. James Oglethorpe, the founder of Georgia, to settle there in 1734. By 1741 some 1200 Salzburgers were living in Georgia, and these volumes are both a history and a promotional work for further settlement. "This series of NACHRICHTEN is one of the most important source works on the history of Georgia, being the contemporary accounts of the German settlements in the province..." - De Renne. The individual parts that make up this set are as follows: 1) DER AUSFUHRLICHEN NACHRICHTEN VON DER KONIGLICH-GROSS- BRITANNISCHEN COLONIE SALTZBURGISCHER EMIGRANTEN IN AMERICA. ERSTER THIEL.

        Der sich von Frau und Kindern verabschiedende Soldat.

      - Feder in Grau, grau laviert, über Bleistift, auf Velin. 13,7 x 8,7 cm. Verso gerötelt und recto zum Zwecke der Übertragung auf die Kupferplatte durchgeriffelt. Vorzeichnung zur beigefügten Radierung (im Gegensinn). Nicht bei Engelmann und Bauer. Chodowiecki mußte nach dem Tod des Vaters eine kaufmännische Lehre beginnen. Nach seinem Umzug nach Berlin 1743 begann er für das Kurzwarengeschäft seines Onkels Modeschmuck zu entwerfen und zu zeichnen. Dieser Onkel war es auch, der ihn zu einer künstlerischen Ausbildung ermunterte und ihn durch den Augsburger Künstler J.J. Haid (1704-1767) in Emaillemalerei unterrichten ließ. Mit dieser Technik hatte Chodowiecki dann so großen Erfolg, daß er von weiteren Tätigkeiten im Ladengeschäft befreit wurde und sich 1754 selbständig machen konnte. Seit 1758 ging er zur Radiertechnik über, die in den nächsten Jahren sein Hauptbetätigungsfeld werden und ihm größte Erfolge als Illustrator und Kupferstecher bringen sollte. Die Ölmalerei brachte ihm dagegen kaum öffentliche Anerkennung. 1764 wurde er Mitglied der Berliner Kunstakademie, 1786 erfolgte die Ernennung zu ihrem Sekretär, damit war er für die laufenden Ausstellungen verantwortlich. 1790 wurde er Stellvertretender Direktor, ein Jahr später Leitender Direktor.

        Dromedar.

      . Rötel, auf Bütten mit Wasserzeichen: JHonig & Zoonen. 14,6:18,5 cm. Minimal fleckig, am Rand rechts kleine Fehlstelle, Knickfalten unten.. Chodowiecki mußte nach dem Tod des Vaters eine kaufmännische Lehre beginnen. Nach seinem Umzug nach Berlin 1743 begann er für das Kurzwarengeschäft seines Onkels Modeschmuck zu entwerfen und zu zeichnen. Dieser Onkel war es auch, der ihn zu einer künstlerischen Ausbildung ermunterte und ihn durch den Augsburger Künstler J.J. Haid (1704-1767) in Emaillemalerei unterrichten ließ. Mit dieser Technik hatte Chodowiecki dann so großen Erfolg, daß er von weiteren Tätigkeiten im Ladengeschäft befreit wurde und sich 1754 selbständig machen konnte. Seit 1758 ging er zur Radiertechnik über, die in den nächsten Jahren sein Hauptbetätigungsfeld werden und ihm größte Erfolge als Illustrator und Kupferstecher bringen sollte. Die Ölmalerei brachte ihm dagegen kaum öffentliche Anerkennung. 1764 wurde er Mitglied der Berliner Kunstakademie, 1786 erfolgte die Ernennung zu ihrem Sekretär, damit war er für die laufenden Ausstellungen verantwortlich. 1790 wurde er Stellvertretender Direktor, ein Jahr später Leitender Direktor.

        DER AUSFUHRLICHEN NACHRICHTEN VON DER KONIGLICH-GROSS- BRITANNISCHEN COLONIE SALTZBURGISCHER EMIGRANTEN IN AMERICA. ERSTER THIEL [with SIX ADDITIONAL CONTINUATIONS].

      Halle. 1738-1743. - Three small quarto volumes (one part and six additional "Continuations"). Without the map and fold-out plate. Contemporary marbled boards. Covers worn and chipped. Titlepage heavily tanned, closely trimmed. Minor toning and foxing to text. Second volume [containing five Continuations] in contemporary three-quarter calf. Binding worn, text toned and foxed, a few pages with damage. Third volume [containing NEUNTE CONTINUATION] disbound. Light wear and foxing. Overall in good condition. An extensive collection of these vital sources for the early history of Georgia. This group contains the first part, with the first five Continuations, as well as the ninth Continuation of these important annual accounts of the Salzburger settlements in Georgia, commonly known as "the Salzburger Tracts." These settlements began when a group of German settlers from Salzburg, fleeing religious persecution at home, accepted the invitation of Gen. James Oglethorpe, the founder of Georgia, to settle there in 1734. By 1741 some twelve hundred Salzburgers were living in Georgia, and these volumes are both a history and a promotional work for further settlement. "This series of NACHRICHTEN is one of the most important source works on the history of Georgia, being the contemporary accounts of the German settlements in the province." - De Renne. The individual parts that make up this set are as follows: 1) DER AUSFUHRLICHEN NACHRICHTEN VON DER KONIGLICH-GROSS- BRITANNISCHEN COLONIE SALTZBURGISCHER EMIGRANTEN IN AMERICA. ERSTER THIEL.

        [HWV 49a]. Acis and Galatea. A Mask As it was Originally Compos'd with the Overture, Recitativo's, Songs, Duets & Choruses, for Voices and Instruments... [Full score]

      London: I. Walsh. [1743]. Folio. Attractively bound in period style in modern brown half calf with marbled boards, spine in blind-tooled compartments with red morocco title labels gilt. 1f. (title), 1f. (table of contents and publisher's catalogue, "Musick Just Publish'd... Compos'd by Mr. Handel"), 89, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved. Occasional minor foxing and offsetting; title and final leaves slightly browned at edges; small ink stain to table of contents. . First Edition of the complete work in full score; the only such edition published in Handel's lifetime. Smith p. 82, no. 6. BUC p. 430. Hoboken 5, 88. Hirsch II, 373. RISM H380. The first public performance of the complete work was given at Lincoln's Inn Theatre on March 26th 1731. The libretto is by John Gay (1685-1732). "Acis and Galatea, HandelÂ’s first dramatic work in English, had its models in the English pastoral operas by Pepusch (his colleague at Cannons), Galliard and others that had been given in 1715–18 at the Drury Lane theatre in rivalry to the Italian opera... The work is unique in HandelÂ’s output (though he tried to recapture elements of it in such works as LÂ’Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato, 1739, and Semele, 1744); the influence of Purcell has been claimed, and musical ideas indebted to Keiser and others have been noted, but in approach it owes more to the Drury Lane pastoral operas than to any other source and in inspiration, conception and execution it remains wholly individual." Stanley Sadie in Grove Music Online. Acis and Galatea "is so perfect in style that we might take it for the climax of a long traditon, instead of a first essay in a new form and an unfamiliar language. As such it is a sufficient miracle; but it appears as a solitary peak only because its forebears have never been investigated. It is a vital link in the chain between the Purcellian masque and the mature Handelian oratorio." Dean p. 153.

        [HWV 350]. Handel's Celebrated Water Musick Compleat. Set for the Harpsicord. To which is added, Two favourite Minuets, with Variations for the Harpsicord, By Geminiani

      London: I. Walsh. [ca. 1743]. Folio. Attractively bound in period style in modern quarter tan calf with marbled boards, red morocco title label gilt to spine. 1f. (title), [1] (blank), 2-27, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved. Final blank page with a somewhat crude contemporary sketch of two bulls and a woman with horns, hooves, and a devil's tail, with annotations in pencil and black ink. Slightly worn, soiled and foxed; small repair to blank lower margin of final leaf not affecting text. . First complete edition. Smith p. 255, no. 3 (the present copy includes the additional page numbering as described herein). Fuld p. 622. BUC p. 443. RISM H1323 (not distinguishing issues). "The major orchestral work of this period is the Water Music, a large-scale suite specially written to accompany a royal water party of June 1717, in which George I and his entourage were conveyed by barge along the Thames from Whitehall to Chelsea and back. The suite is remarkable for being the first orchestral work composed in England to include horns, crooked in both F and D; in movements in D major they are joined, sometimes in dialogue, by trumpets. The jovial opulence of such moments is balanced by lightly scored movements in both major and minor keys, mostly having G as their tonic. Though some of the music may have been written earlier for other contexts, the recent notion that the music was conceived or considered to exist as ?'three suites?' is questionable, since the earliest sources (keyboard transcripts from the early 1720s) show the movements in D and G in mixed order (as in the editions of Arnold and Chrysander). Ordering the movements by key had however become a practice by the 1730s, and is reflected in the keyboard arrangement published by Walsh in 1743." Anthony Hicks in Grove Music Online.

        THE GERMAN BIBLE IN AMERICA. WITH 25 ORIGINAL LEAVES. Introduction by Don Yoder

      New Haven; Bryn Mawr; New York. 2012.. 20; 20pp. text in both English and German, plus twenty- five original leaves tipped into accompanying folders. Large folio. Fine. In a custom clamshell box. The German Bible in America has a long and significant history, reflective of the European culture which gave it birth, the local conditions of Pennsylvania, where it rose to its greatest heights, and the rich German- American culture created by emigrants and their descendants in the 19th-century United States. From the first American edition of a Bible in German, in 1743, through the late 19th century, numerous printers and publishers issued Bibles in various formats, ranging from large folios intended for lectern use to smaller versions for personal study. This leaf book celebrates the range and richness of these productions, indicative of the world of German culture in America in the 18th and 19th centuries, as expressed through its most widely studied text, in a series of twenty-five leaves. Each set contains two versions of the descriptive text, one in English and the other in German, with an introduction by Don Yoder, Professor Emeritus of Religious Studies, Folklore and Folk-Life at the University of Pennsylvania. Further text describes the printers of each of the leaves, the circumstances under which they were printed, and other attributes. Each leaf is enclosed in an individual folder. The German Bible in America is issued in an edition of sixty copies, with fifty of the regular series and ten additional deluxe copies containing six extra leaves of illustrations from the illustrated Bibles included in the collection. This is one of fifty regular copies, numbered by hand. A deluxe issue, with six additional illustrated leaves, is also available for $3500.

        [HWV 350]. Handel's Celebrated Water Musick Compleat. Set for the Harpsicord. To which is added, Two favourite Minuets, with Variations for the Harpsicord, By Geminiani

      London: I. Walsh. [ca. 1743]. Folio. Attractively bound in period style in modern quarter tan calf with marbled boards, red morocco title label gilt to spine. 1f. (title), [1] (blank), 2-27, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved. Final blank page with a somewhat crude contemporary sketch of two bulls and a woman with horns, hooves, and a devil's tail, with annotations in pencil and black ink. Slightly worn, soiled and foxed; small repair to blank lower margin of final leaf not affecting text. . First complete edition. Smith p. 255, no. 3 (the present copy includes the additional page numbering as described herein). Fuld p. 622. BUC p. 443. RISM H1323 (not distinguishing issues). "The major orchestral work of this period is the Water Music, a large-scale suite specially written to accompany a royal water party of June 1717, in which George I and his entourage were conveyed by barge along the Thames from Whitehall to Chelsea and back. The suite is remarkable for being the first orchestral work composed in England to include horns, crooked in both F and D; in movements in D major they are joined, sometimes in dialogue, by trumpets. The jovial opulence of such moments is balanced by lightly scored movements in both major and minor keys, mostly having G as their tonic. Though some of the music may have been written earlier for other contexts, the recent notion that the music was conceived or considered to exist as ‘three suitesÂ’ is questionable, since the earliest sources (keyboard transcripts from the early 1720s) show the movements in D and G in mixed order (as in the editions of Arnold and Chrysander). Ordering the movements by key had however become a practice by the 1730s, and is reflected in the keyboard arrangement published by Walsh in 1743." Anthony Hicks in Grove Music Online.

These prints have a location on each of them, what did pas.Plein calf iced era edition from 1740. Smooth spine decorated. Part of title and volume number in red morocco. Caps of Volume II leveled; 2 corners élimées.Ce licentious and erotic tale won upon its release a success, although it caused a scandal and that accused the author of obscenity, irreligion; some even saw a critique of Ugénitus bubble (against Jansenism) and Cardinal de Rohan, and Crebillon lives imprisoned following his accusations. Tanzai is a fairy tale and political, including the strangeness of the story always surprises the reader, the whole story revolving around a skimmer gold huge round ... --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [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 le 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".

        CONSULTATIONES MEDICAE SIVE SYLLOGE EPISTOLARUM CUM RESPONSIS HERMANNI BOERHAAVE

      Alex. Johnson 1743 - (2), 16, 231, (1), 34, (2=blank) pp. Some library descriptions also mention an initial blank. In all copies seen this is a misidentified flyleave however. The Leiden copy of the 1743 edition is quite loosely bound, and shows quite clearly that the final blank and leave R1 are connected. Contemporary calf with gilt title on decorated spine (in 6 compartments). Contemporary decorated endpapers. Title page in red and black. Edges stained red. Small old name at ffep., the connected HB (identical to our copy of Elementa Chemiae) suggests a Boerhaave related provenance. With 2 prefaces, a 2-page version, undated and ending with a double horizontal line. Further a 14 -page preface signed CB, December 1die, 1743. The first is commonly found in copies with a 1743 title, the long preface in those with 1744 on title. Collation of the text then following is identical in both issues: A-P8 R6. The librarian of UVA checked the collations of their 2 copies confirming this, as do the 1743 and 1744 copies of Leiden University (autopsy, also noting that the 1744 title is printed in black only). 52 medical cases with a response (and sometimes recipy) by Boerhaave. Followed by two annexes on Kaxezia and Paralysis. A very early edition of this Boerhaave title, reprinted many times in London (1744, Nourse), Goettingen (Van der Hoek) and Paris. This possibly explains, why no copies are found outside The Netherlands: foreign librarians just ordered in their own country, where the book was available shortly after the Dutch 1st edition came out. 5 copies in NCC (the central electronic catalog of Dutch libraries), 1 in KvK (Erlangen/Nurnberg). COPAC mentions 1 copy (Wellcome). First signature of text signed: Vol. I, as usual, however no additional volumes issued. Osler 1119 (however a later 1753 Paris edition). Here then a rare copy of the 1st (1743) issue, surprisingly with also the long preface bound in, which usually is found in 2nd (1744) issue copies. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

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

      London: Jacob Robinson, 1743. Octavo, a good copy in contemporary sprinkled sheep, repaired. "incredible Hardships they frequently underwent for want of food" 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.
