        Berättelse/ om ajuckiniska Calmuckiet, eller om detta folkets ursprung, huru de kommit under ryssarnas lydno, deras gudar, gudsdyrkan och prester, huru de skiftas uti 4 ulusser eller folkhopar, deras politique och philosophie, med flera deras lefwernes sätt och seder så wid bröllop som begrafningar.

      Sthlm, L. Salvius, 1744. 8:o. (10),68 s. Häftad och insatt i en ny gråpappersryggremsa. Inlagan endast putsad. Enstaka småfläckar. Titelbladet med några små solkfläckar och s. (5-8) med en liten pappersförlust i övermarginalen. En ca fem cm lång reva i yttermarginalen på s. 11-12.. Trycktes på tyska i "Sammlung russischer Geschichte" IV, 1760. Den första viktigare etnografiska skildringen av kalmuckerna. Kalmuckerna är ett mongolfolk vars rike omfattade bl.a. nuvarande Östturkestan och den kinesiska provinsen Sinkiang. Joh. Christ. Schnitscher (1682-1744) var kornett vid Gyllenstiernska dragonerna och hade 1711-15 medföljt den kinesiska ambassadören till Kalmyk Aiuk Khan. Hans berättelse nedskrevs i staden Zaratoff och kopierades av en svensk officer vars avskrift så småningom hamnade i Salvius händer. I Salvius förord anges att arbetet är försett med noter av "capitein Renat". Denne är identisk med den svenska styckjunkaren vid artilleriet Johan Renat, som i rysk tjänst blivit tillfångatagen av kalmuckerna: "denne herrens 17 års wistande ibland calmuckerne har nog warit tilräckeligt, at förwärfwa honom mycken kunskap om deras tilstånd". Renat, som var av judisk börd och vars föräldrar invandrat till Sverige och övergått till kristendomen, upprättade även några tidiga kartor över Centralasien

        Histoire Et Description Générale De La Nouvelle France, Avec Le Journal Historique d'un Voyage fait par ordre du Roi dans l'Amérique Septentrionale

      Paris: Rolin Fils, 1744. First Edition. The product of twenty years research and reflection, based on personal observation and material gathered from the archives of the Jesuit order and the Department of Marine, Charlevoix's famous work is the first general history of the French discoveries and settlements in North America, covering the period 1500 to 1736. Charlevoix, who was a Jesuit missionary to New France from 1705 to 1709, was charged in 1720-22, by the regent Philippe, Duc d'Orléans, to investigate the rumours about the existence of a western sea between the New World and the Orient. Volumes V-VI of his history provides a detailed and precise account of his observations made during the course of that journey, by canoe, up the St. Lawrence, through the Great Lakes and down the Mississippi to New Orleans, with stops at missions and fur-trading posts along the way. The work contains much important information about the Indian tribes and settlements, particularly in the Mississippi Country, and includes "one of the most valuable, if not the most valuable, early accounts of Louisiana." (Clark) Charlevoix's history is also highly valued for a number of other reasons. It contains the first annotated bibliography of New France (Vol. I pp. xli-[lxii]) (see Harrisse 'Bibliotheca Americana', pp. xvii-xviii), a remarkable illustrated descriptive catalogue of the principal plants of North America (Vol. II, pp. 56), an annotated calendar of major voyages and discoveries (Vol. I, pp. v-xl), and 28 engraved maps and plans of Acadia, Louisbourg, Port Royale, Port Dauphin, Quebec, the St. Lawrence, the River Saguenay, Montreal, Newfoundland, Hudson's Bay, James Bay, the Great Lakes, Louisiana, the mouth of the Mississippi, &c., prepared especially for the work by distinguished French cartographer, Jacques Nicholas Bellin (see Karpinski pp. 137-38). There is also a short essay by Bellin prefixed to Volume III (pp. xix), discussing the accuracy of his maps and the errors and misrepresentations of earlier cartographers. Dionne II 439.

        Hudibras

      Cambridge - J. Bentham, 1744 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Two leatherbound volumes with gilt titles to the spine, and 16plates illustrated by William Hogarth: 9 in Volume I and 7 in Volume II. Samuel Butler (8 February 1612 25 September 1680) was a poet and satirist. Born in Strensham, Worcestershire and baptised 14 February 1613,he is remembered now chiefly for a long satirical burlesque poem on Puritanism entitled Hudibras. The work is a satirical polemic upon Roundheads, Puritans, Presbyterians and many of the other factions involved in the English Civil War. The work was written in three parts in 1663, 1664 and 1678 although an unauthorised edition came out in 1662. Published only four years after Charles II had been restored to the throne and the Protectorate of Oliver Cromwell being completely over the poem found an appreciative audience. The satire is not balanced as Butler was fiercely royalist and only the parliamentarian side are singled out for ridicule. Butler also uses the work to parody some of the dreadful poetry of the time. The epic tells the story of Sir Hudibras, a knight errant who is described dramatically and with laudatory praise that is so thickly applied as to be absurd, and the conceited and arrogant person is visible beneath. He is praised for his knowledge of logic despite appearing stupid throughout, but it is his religious fervour which is mainly attacked. His squire, Ralpho, is of a similar stamp but makes no claim to great learning, knowing all there is to know from his religion or new-light, as he calls it. Butler satirises the competing factions at the time of the protectorship by the constant bickering of these two principal characters whose religious opinions should unite them. These are fawning but barbed portraits and are thought to represent personalities of the times but the actual analogues are, now as then, debatable. A Key to Hudibras printed with one of the work's editions (1709) and ascribed to Roger L'Estrange names Sir Samuel Luke as the model for Hudibras. Certainly, the mention of Mamaluke in the poem makes this possible although Butler suggests Hudibras is from the West Country making Henry Rosewell a candidate. The witchfinder, Matthew Hopkins, John Desborough, parliamentarian general, and William Prynne, lawyer, all make appearances, and the character of Sidrophel is variously seen as either William Lilly or Paul Neale. The mock heroic epic and its jaunty verse form known as Hudibrastic became the standard of satire for some time after that with at least twenty-seven direct imitations being produced. Fifty years after the last part was written a new edition was published, with illustrations by William Hogarth, one of the foremost artists of the day. The work remained popular for several centuries as a warning against the zealotry during the Civil War period of English history. Condition: The volumes have been rebacked. The bindings are tight and firm with all covers and pages securely attached. There is some mild wear to the extremities including rubbing to the boards. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright with the occasional handling mark and isolated spot. There are bookplates to the front pastedowns. Overall the volumes are in very good condition..

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.

"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.

      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.

Contemporary vellum, raised bands, ornate gilt double frames enclosing heraldic device to boards, gilt ornaments to spine. Soiling, some wear to corners and spine ends, front endleaf (or half-title) lacking. Title page printed in red and black. Handsome woodcut tail-pieces and decorated initials. Partial split between preliminary gathering and title page. Interior notably fresh. * An edition of the Institutes edited by Jacques Cujas (Cujacius) with extensive commentary and notes by Jean Lacoste, Theodore Marcile and Marc-Antoine Muret. These jurists, who followed Cujas' example, were leaders of the French humanistic school, which aimed to purge Roman sources of later corruptions. Their pioneering methods did much to establish the field of philology. Compiled around 161 CE, the Institutes is an elementary treatise on Roman private law that served as a standard text for 300 years. After its rediscovery during the medieval era it became a staple of European legal education. Not in the British Museum Catalogue.

        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

        Einer Ausführlichen Anleitung zur Bürgerlichen Bau-Kunst

      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. Augsburg 1744-48 [-1749]. With 5 fullp. frontispieces of which 1 is folded, 237 fullp. folded plates and 4 smaller vignettes, all coppperengraved. Fol. 6 + 82 + 3 leaves; 11 + 91 + 8 leaves; 6 + 61 + 5 leaves; 4 + 51 + 5 leaves. Contp., nice restored full mottled calf with labels on spine. 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
