      Dublin: Printed by G. Faulkner, 1743.. [2],170pp. (lacking two terminal leaves of ads). Octavo. Extracted from bound volume. Old stamps of a defunct mercantile library, shallow faint discoloration in a few top margins, modest foxing and dustmarking, small loss from top blank fore-corners of last few leaves, else a good, sound copy. First (Dublin) edition of this "masterly pamphlet in defence of Bath's political apostasy ... which passed through a number of editions, and has been pronounced by Coxe as ‘one of the best political pamphlets ever written’ (Life of Sir Robert Walpole, 1798, i. 703 n.)" - DNB. "Includes refs to Spanish seizure of British merchant ships in West Indies & along coasts of Florida, Georgia & South Carolina" - European Americana. "Claims to be an impartial view of parties at home and affairs abroad; the decay of trade, assiento contract; South Sea Co; and British colonies in America" - Kress (referring to 1743 1st, 2nd and 3rd London editions). Howes is possibly in error in calling for several 1742 London editions - the London edition and its reprints were dated 1743 and later. Among Americana references, European Americana and De Renne record the Dublin edition as the proper first, and as Perceval sat from 1731 until 1748 in the Irish House of Commons for Dingle-I-Couch in Kerry, it seems probable that the Dublin printing might claim priority.

      . Mem. Acad. roy. Chir., 1. - Pairs, Chalres Osmont, 1743, 4°, Front., XL, 778, (4) pp., 20 Kupferstichtafeln, Halbledereinband; feines Exemplar.. Erste Ausgabe! 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. Frank McDowell - - ----"In 1739 le Dran, reporting "Sur un oeil eraille"( pp.440-443, 1 plate) the case of a patient fourteen years of age, described the repair of a deformity of the nasal end of the lower lid following extensive disease of the lacrimal sac which occurred at eight years of age. There were marked ectropicon and a tumor of the size of an olive (possible a mucocele of the lacrimal sac? W.L.H.), which was first dissected out. Two months later he dissected up the skin on the side of the nose, sliding this case to relieve the ectropion of the nasal end of the lower lid." Wendell L.

      Edinburgh: Printed by Richard Watkins, 1743. n. Hardcover. 140 x 70 mm (5 1/2 x 2 3/4"). Two volumes. EXTREMELY PLEASING PERIOD BLACK MOROCCO, VERY ELABORATELY GILT, IN A SCOTTISH HERRINGBONE DESIGN, covers bordered by garland roll and double gilt rules, central panel framed by decorative roll and plain rules enclosed by dotted half circles alternating with fleurs-de-lys and with oblique tulip cornerpieces, the central panel with a herringbone pattern formed by turnip tools and accented by other small ornaments; raised bands, spine gilt in compartments quartered by a saltire and tooled with fleurons, small flowers, and circlets; gilt turn-ins, Dutch endpapers of green, white, and gold, all edges gilt (tiny expert repairs at spine ends). Front flyleaf of each volume with (19th century?) ownership inscription of H. Gordon. Darlow & Moule 808. A bit of rubbing to joints and corners (but this well masked with dye), otherwise a very appealing set in fine condition, the bindings bright and showing no serious wear, and the especially smooth, clean text with virtually no signs of use. This charming little Bible is an excellent example of so-called "herringbone" bindings, one of the two distinctive national styles (the other being "wheel" bindings) that distinguished the flowering of Scottish bookbinding in the 18th century. Our volume uses the popular turnip tool as the central design element in a way similar to Sommerlad items #16-18 in "Scottish 'Wheel' and 'Herring-bone' Bindings in the Bodleian Library." Items #17 and #18 in Sommerlad also feature the half-circles surrounding the central frame, a design that appears as well in Maggs Catalogue 1212, #122. And the binding here has a clear resemblance to #82 in Hobson's "English Bindings in the Library of J. R. Abbey." That binding is dated ca. 1774, with the remark that similarly decorated bindings from the 1770s are known to have covered books that had been published as much as 30 or 40 years before--and that may be the case with our volumes. The Dutch gilt endpapers--which are quite striking here--are characteristic of Scottish bindings of the 18th century, and rarely appear in books bound in England.

Colbert commissioned Vaillant to travel through Italy, Sicily and Greece for the purpose of collecting ancient medals for the King's cabinet at Versailles. In 1674 Vaillant published his first work on the coins of the Roman emperors under the title 'Numismata Imperatorum Romanorum' of which a second and much improved edition appeared in 1692, 2 volumes, 4to.

        Plate 43 - The American Goldfinch

      London: 1734-1743 - Plate from The Natural History of Carolina, Florida, and the Bahama Islands London: 1734-1743 (first edition and second edition) Sheet size: 14” x 20” Framed size: 24" x 20 1/2" In 1712, the English-born artist and naturalist Mark Catesby embarked on a series of expeditions to the southern colonies of British North America. Enthralled by the wildlife of the New World, he spent years traveling by foot through parts of present-day Virginia, Georgia, the Carolinas and the Bahamas. Over the course of his journeys, he encountered and documented uncountable varieties of animal and plant life that were entirely unknown to Europeans. His drawings and written observations were the raw material for an unprecedented project: a scientific account of previously uninvestigated wildlife, with illustrations taken from life. When Catesby returned to England from his final voyage to America in 1726, he was unable to afford the expense of having his drawings engraved professionally. Undeterred, he taught himself to etch with the assistance of Joseph Goupy, a French artist living in London, and went on to produce all but a few of the plates for his publication. He scrupulously monitored the coloring of the engravings, either painting the impressions himself or closely supervising the work to insure its fidelity to his preparatory studies. The result of Catesby’s tenacious effort was the most sweeping, complete and unique natural history study ever done. Widely considered a crowning achievement of 18th-century art and science, Catesby’s Natural History of Carolina, Florida and the Bahama Islands has lost none of its power to delight in the 250 years since its publication. This remarkable study of American plants, animals, and marine life provided an important model for later artists, including John James Audubon, who followed in Catesby’s footsteps a century later. The works illustrated here are among the masterpieces of Catesby’s Natural History. The artist’s charming, distinctive style is immediately apparent in these engravings, and Catesby’s enthusiasm for his subjects is palpable. Aside from their esthetic charm, however, Catesby’s illustrations were significant for other reasons. His pioneering attempts to describe and portray birds accurately, life-sized, and in botanical settings set him apart from his contemporaries and foreshadowed the work of Audubon and Alexander Wilson. He was the first to abandon the Indian names for his subjects, trying to establish scientific names based on generic relationships. Indeed, the great Linnaeus, working on his Systema Naturae at this time, used Catesby’s work as the basis of his system of binomial nomenclature for American species. For all these and many other reasons, these are magnificent prints both for their beauty and importance. The quality of the work was so far superior to foregoing accounts that many scholars rank Catesby as the first real naturalist in America. Framed in a beautiful frame to museum specifications: mounted with archival materials, UV plexiglass, etc.

        Locupletissimi Rerum Naturalium Thesauri - Tab. LXXXVII

      Amsterdam 1743 - Seba was a German-born apothecary practicing in Amsterdam. His scientific interests and curiosity motivated him to amass a collection of exotic oddities garnered from his travels to the East and West Indies and from the purchases he made of specimens collected by travellers and world over. Many of the snake, plants, fish and shells illustrated and described in his 'Thesaurus' were based on the specimens Seba collected in his 'cabinet of curiosities'. In fact, many of the extravagant designs of the engravings were copies of the arrangements of the specimens in the drawers of his cabinets and were echoed in the arrangements on the walls of the museum's interior. The collection was a valuable source to European natural historians, many of whom would not have had the opportunity to travel to the far flung destinations where the specimens were collected. It is documented that Carolus Linneas visited the collection when he was in Amsterdam. In 1717, Seba sold his collection to Peter the Great of Russia for an amount which contemporaries described as 'vast'.

        The History of England

      London - John and Paul Knapton 1743 - Four leatherbound volumes with marble paper covered boards and gilt titles to the spines. Volume I has an engraved frontispiece, 3 fold-out maps, 4 foldout plates, and 49 other plates. Volume II has an engraved frontispiece and 12 plates. Volume III has an engraved frontispiece, 2 foldout maps, 1 foldout plate and 6 other plates. Volume IV has an engraved frontispiece, 1 other plate, 5 foldout maps and plans, and all 22 plates of medals. Paul de Rapin (March 25, 1661 - 1725), sieur of Thoyras (and therefore styled Thoyras de Rapin), was a French historian writing under English patronage. The son of Jacques de Rapin, an avocat at Castres (Tarn), he was educated at the Protestant academy of Saumur, and in 1679 became an advocate, but soon afterwards joined the army. The revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685, and the death of his father led him to come to England; but, unable to find work there, he went on to the Netherlands where he enlisted in a company of French volunteers at Utrecht, commanded by his cousin, Daniel de Rapin. He accompanied William III to England in 1688, and during the Williamite war in Ireland he took part in the siege of Carrickfergus and the Battle of the Boyne, and was wounded at the Siege of Limerick (1690). Soon afterwards he was promoted to captain; but in 1693 he resigned in order to become tutor to the Earl of Portland's son. After travelling with the boy, he settled with his family (he married Marie-Anne Testart in 1699) in Holland, first at the Hague, then, to save money, at Wesel, in 1707. It was at Wesel that he began his great work, L'Histoire d'Angleterre. Volume I contained, in five books, an account of Britain from the time of the Ancient British down to the Norman Conquest, and made an unsually thorough attempt for its time to rally the various principal sources. Volume II (Books VI-VIII) Covered from William the Conqueror to Henry III; Volume III (IX, X and XI), Edward I to Henry V; Volume IV (XII to XIV), Henry VI to Henry VII; Volume V (XV), Henry VIII; Volume VI (XVI & XVII), Edward VI to Elizabeth, and Vol VII (XVIII), James I and Charles I. It was printed at the Hague in 1724, with illustrations and allegorical endpieces designed and engraved by F. M. La Cave, and with a dedicatory epistle to King George I. The written style is lucid and effective. Although written in French this work was produced for the endorsement of the British monarchy, and at the time of its publication, for the House of Hanover. The original version was almost the only English History available in France in the first half of the eighteenth century. All volumes of his work were translated in the early 18th century by the Rev Nicolas Tindal. Tindal, the nephew and heir of Dr Matthew Tindal, the eminent deist, in a total of 14 volumes. Tindal began this great task as a chaplain to the Royal Navy, as attested in his Forward to an early volume. He added large numbers of informative notes throughout the volumes, which were illustrated with engravings, maps and genealogical tables of great quality. Condition: The bindings are tight and firm although the outer hinges are starting to crack. There is some wear to the extremities including heavy rubbing to the boards with loss to the paper at the edges, and some cracking to the leather on the spines. The pages are rough cut. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright with the occasional handling mark, odd spot, mild water stain and some pencil and inkannotations. There are repairs to a few of the edges of the pages, mainly in Volume I, including the title page of Volume I. There are two pages with large closed tears to the middle: p 671/2 in Volume II, and p 513/4 in Volume III. Page 11/12 in Volume IV is detached and present. The volumes are missing some plates, although there is no pagination on the ESTC to properly compare this.

        Mappemonde ou Description du Globe Terrestre

      1743 - Gilles and Didier Robert de Vaugondy Mappemonde ou Description du Globe Terrestre Paris: 1743 Copperplate engraving with original hand outline color Paper size 20" x 29 1/2"; Framed size 31 1/4" x 41 1/8" The Robert de Vaugondy family of mapmakers was preeminent in the eighteenth century, at a time when the French were at the forefront of cartography. Gilles Robert de Vaugondy was a descendent of the family of the great seventeenth-century French cartographer Nicolas Sanson. Sanson had initiated the so-called “French school of cartography,” which was unprecedented in its attention to precision and scientific detail, and which discarded much of the decorative embellishments of previous maps as being irrelevant. From Sanson’s time in the second half of the seventeenth century until the latter part of the eighteenth century, with the activity of the Robert de Vaugondy family, French geographical conceptions were more influential than those of any other nation. Gilles Robert de Vaugondy inherited the firm of his uncle, Pierre Moullart-Sanson, in 1730. He enlarged the stock of his family company when he purchased the estate of another acclaimed cartographer, Hubert Jaillot. He and other family members combined much of the inherited cartographic material with their own innovations, as well as those of the most advanced American mapmakers, to publish a series of beautifully produced atlases at mid-century. Gilles and his son, Didier, were the most celebrated members of the cartography dynasty, both honored with the title of Geographer to the King, Gilles in 1730 and Didier in 1760. They were responsible for this large-scale, remarkably accurate world map. In compiling it, they revised and corrected material from Sanson and Jaillot, and added many new place names. As a result, this map was one of the most advanced of its day. In a move that was characteristic of French scientific cartography, the unknown areas were left blank, rather than invented (see, for example, theincomplete coastlines of Australia and North America). This is a magnificent map by this distinguished family of mapmakers.
