It is a clean and very good copy overall, with an excellent association.

        Histoire et Description Generale de la Nouvelle France, avec le journal historique d'un voyage fait par ordre du Roi dans l'Amerique septentrionnale [sic.]

      Paris: Chez Pierre-François Giffart, 1744. 3 volumes. (10 x 7 3/4 inches). [8], xxvi, 664; [4], xv, [1], 582, 56; [4], xix, [1], xiv, 500, lxi, [3], 501-543pp. Half-title in each volume, titles printed in red and black with integral emblematic vignette. 4 engraved headpieces, 28 engraved maps and plans (9 folding, 16 double-page), 22 folding leaves printed with 44 engraved plates exhibiting 96 botanical subjects. Contemporary French figured calf, spines in six compartments with raised bands, red morocco lettering-pieces in the second and third compartments, the others with repeat tooling in gilt of a flower-spray tool surrounded by small star tools, stylised foliage cornerpieces, small pomegranate tools and double fillet borders, marbled endpapers. A fine untouched set of the first edition of this classic work of Canadian history, which includes important material on the French settlement in the Mississippi Valley. The journal consists of thirty-six letters, six of which concern the southern colonies. "The principal work of this great Jesuit traveller and historian and the pre-eminent authority on the French period in the West" (Howes). "This work is one of the best authorities concerning various Indian tribes, some of which no longer exist. The laborious accuracy with which the work was executed can be estimated by the fact that the maps, dated 1743, are marked with the latest discoveries, in 1742, in the extreme north of America" (Lande). Most of the maps in this work were drawn by French cartographer Nicholas Bellin, including his important map of North America, a frequent source for later mapmakers, as well as some of the most definitive and up-to-date maps available of Canada. Besides its great importance as an historical and cartographical work, Charlevoix's work is also of considerable interest for the section entitled "Description des Plantes Principales de l'Amerique Septentrionale," which occupies the final fifty-six pages of the second volume. Here the author describes ninety six plants, most native to Canada, but including herbs of the Mississippi Valley as well. Most of the plants are described as having medicinal value. The text is accompanied by twenty two folding plates illustrating all ninety six species discussed Clark I:59; Greenly Michigan 11; Howes C307, "B."; Karpinski, P.137; Lande 125; Michigan Rarities 8; Pilling Proof-Sheets 756; Sabin 12135; Servies 377, 378, 379; TPL 4697; Wheat Transmississippi 120.

        Theoria motuum planetarum et cometarum. Continens methodum facilem ex aliquot observationibus orbitas cum planetarum tum cometarum determinandi. Una cum calculo, quo cometae, qui annis 1680 et 1681. Itemque ejus, qui nuper est visus, motus verus investigatur

      Berlin: Ambrosius Haude, 1744. First edition. In this work Euler gives “the solutions of the main problems of theoretical astronomy dealing with the structure, nature, motion and action of comets and planets. With regard to the theory of perturbed motion of celestial bodies, Euler formulated the perturbation theory in general terms so that it can be used to solve the mathematical problem of dynamic models and particular problems of theoretical astronomy ... He gave an extensive mathematical treatment of the problem of improving approximations of orbits within the framework of the two-body problem and taking perturbations into account. In his Theoria motuum planetarum et cometarum published in 1744, Euler gave a complete mathematical treatment of the two-body problem consisting of a planet and the Sun.” (Debnath, The Legacy of Leonhard Euler, p. 364). Eneström 66; Honeyman 1063. 4to, contemporary boards, with some light wear, pp 187, in all a very good copy. The frontispiece by F.H. Fritsch was printed on leaf A4 (pp 7-8); in this, as in most copies, it has been cut out and bound facing the title. The pagination therefore jumps from page six to page nice, but the text is continuous.

      enthaltend ein Lexicon Architectonicum oder Erklärungen der üblichsten Deutschen/ Frantzösischen/ Italienischen Kunst-Wörter der bürgerlichen Bau-Kunst/ nicht minder derer schweren Lateinischen Vitruvianischen zu gemeldter Bau-Kunst gehörigen Wörter. 4 vols.

Name and stamp on flyleaf, small weak stain at the top of vols. I+III; last free endpaper in vol. II restored.. First edition. By the time the 4th vol. of this work appeared it had become the most substantial treatise of civil architecture by a German writer. Penther [1693-1749] was a practising architect and university lecturer, who was responsible for a number of innovative designs, including that of the Operahouse at Hanover (shown in pl. 78-80 in vol. IV). Penther describes himself as "Königl. Grosbritannischen Rath" and clearly had connections with the Royal House of Hanover, since all four volumes of the present work are dedicated to Frederick Louis, Prince of Wales. Despite the encyclopaedic appearance of the present work, it consists only of the first four of eight intended volumes because Penther died before the end of 1749. But even in its incomplete form the work was very successful and both a second and a third edition was later published, and many copies are made up of a mixture of all 3.The 4th vol. is dated 1748 on the titlepage, but 24 June 1749 at the end of the dedication.Catalogue of the British Architectural Library Vol. III. no. 2482

        Utgifwen af Anders Anton von Stiernman.

      Stockholm, Lars Salvius, 1744. 4:o. (10),+ 141,+ (4) s.+ 2 utvikbara tabeller. Flera sigillavbildningar i texten. Ren inlaga med breda marginaler, endast lätta lagerfläckar på de första bladen. Fint samtida hfrbd med liten handskriven ryggtiteletikett, stänkmarmorerade snitt. Ur Abraham Hülphers bibliotek, med dennes namnteckning. Ur L. F. Rääfs bibliotek. Fint exemplar. Med det ofta saknade rättelsebladet. Warmholtz 2038. Ahnlund: Nils Rabenius s. 53 ff. Det väckte stor sensation när den tidigare okända handskriften av Peder Svart om Västerås katolska biskopar upptäcktes av Stiernman, och Erik Benzelius ivrade livligt för dess utgivande. Den levde sedan länge som en viktig källpublikation och, trots en del konstigheter med texten, tryckte Claes Annerstedt om den i "Scriptores rerum Suecicarum" så sent som 1871. 1881 visade Emil Hildebrand att det måste röra sig om ett kompilat från senare tid. Det troligaste, påvisar Ahnlund i sin monografi över Nils Rabenius, är, att denne notoriske urkundsförfalskare är ansvarig även för denna källskrift
