      Dresden, Leipzig, Wien, Prag, Nürnberg, Johann Georg Lochner, (in Rebusform: 1745). - Zweite Gesamtausgabe der kuriosen Schriften Trömers in dessen deutsch-französischem Kauderwelsch mit ebenso kuriosen Kupfern. Die Tafel vor Seite 1 mit aufklappbarem Teil. Sie zeigt einen aufklappbaren Raritätenkasten, so dass man das Innere sehen kann. "Trömer hatte Talent für realistische Schilderung: Spuren davon zeigt sogar die Beschreibung der endlosen Hoffeste für Friedrich Wilhelm I. und den künftigen großen Friedrich, im höheren Maße mancher Dresdner Redouten oder pomphafter Opern und Balletts, der Leipziger Fischerstechen und Studentenmusiken. Der Deutschfranzos versteht es, den sächsischen Bauern vor dem Prunktheater, die Nürnberger Kräutlerin, das Danziger Fischweib in echter landskräftiger Mundart reden zu lassen. Grobianisch aber lustig malt er den Hausknecht, der die mit Vogelleim bestrichene Abtrittsbrille am Gesäß fortschleppt; der komischen Fopperei mit dem Hansarsch von Rippach verdankt er ein Winkelchen in den Faust-Commentaren . Für die Belagerung Danzigs bietet T. manchen frischen Zug . Lessings Figur des Riccaut in 'Minna von Barnhelm' ist wohl von der Sprache des Deutsch-Franzos beeinflußt" (ADB). Trömer (1698-1756) hatte mit diesem lustigen Buch großen Erfolg. Er war von Hause aus Buchhändler, kam weit herum, lebte zeitweise an verschiedenen Höfen, vor allem dem Dresdner und Petersburger, und starb in Dresden. "Unter den sächsischen Büchern des Rokoko ist an erster Stelle ein Buch zu nennen, das noch wesentliche Merkmale des Barock aufweist . Ebenso kurios wie der die Festlichkeiten Augusts des Starken beschreibende Text sind auch die doppelseitigen Kupfertafeln, die Boetius und Busch nach Vorlagen des Dresdener Zeichners, Architekten und Finanzkondukteurs J. A. Richter stachen. Jedes Blatt bringt geistreiche Scherze" (Lanck.-Oehler). – Gering gebräunt, wenige Blatt geringfügig ausgebunden. Vordergelenk gebrochen. Breitrandiges Exemplar.

        Maurice de Saxe Duc de Curlande et de Semigallie Maréchal de France.

      A paris chez l auteur quay des Augustins entre les ruës Paveé et Gile-coeur, au logis de M. Emery. 1745. - Plate mark 46,5 x 34 cm. The whole sheet 68 x 49,5 cm. Engraving. An impressive portrait of Maurice Count of Saxony (1696-1740) by the great engraver Jean Georges Wille after an Original by Hyacinte Rigaud. Maurice was a Saxon officer who fought for several different powers, for example russia under Peter the Great against Sweden. Eventually he joined the french army where he secured many glorious victories and even becoming Marshal General of France. Louis XV was very impressed with his military achivements that brought such honour to France. He was one of the great commanders of the 18th. century and even wrote a classic book on the art of warfare - Mes Réverie - published in 1757. The parents of Maurice were Augustus II the Strong of Poland and his mistress the swedish noblewoman Maria Aurora von Königsmarck. Johann George Wille (1715-1808) was royal engraver to Louis XV of France, Fredrick II of Preussia and Fredrik XV of Denmark and awarded the Legion of Honour by Napoleon. Hyacinthe Rigaud (1659-1743) was a baroque painter known for his exactness in capturing his subject and their costumes, which makes his paintings perfect records of contemporary fashion. Rigaud was one of the finest portrait painters of his time, depicting virtually all of the french nobility as well as foreign royals, ambassadors and dignitaries for more than half a century. Large margins. Uncut. A couple of small indentations to the right side of the image. A very discreet crease across the image. Some creases and a couple of very short tears to the margins. Thin paper strips along two margins at the back.

ESTC T39592 Three important pamphlets relating to the trials of Admiral Mathews and Lestock which resulted from their engagement with the French and Spanish fleet near Toulon, in February, 1744. "The battle was highly discreditable to the British fleet, and not very honorable to their opponents, but it is of the highest historical importance in the history of the navy. It marked the lowest pitch reached in discipline and fighting and efficiency by the fleet in the 18th century, and it had a very bad effect in confirming the pedantic system of tactics set up by the old Fighting Instructions ... " - Encyclopedia Britannica (11th ed). To the puzzlement of many, Lestock, who was second in command and who kept his distance from the battle, was acquitted; while Mathews, who engaged the enemy (however confusedly), was censured and discharged from the service.

        Forestiere Illuminato Dell Citta Di Venezia

      1745. VENICE. ALBRIZZI, Giovanni Battista. Forestiere illuminato intorno le cose più rare, e curiose, antiche, e moderne della città di Venezia, e dell' isole circonvicine; con la descrizione delle chiese, monisteri, ospedali, tesoro di S. Marco, fabbriche pubbliche, pitture celebri, e di quanto v'è di più riguardevole. [16], 419, [13] pp. including final blank. Illustrated with an engraved dedicatory frontispiece, an engraved bird's-eye view of Venice, and 72 views of the city and the surrounding islands on 46 plates, 28 of them double-page, engraved by Giuseppe Filosi and Francesco Zucchi. 8vo., 156 x 108 mm, bound in contemporary Italian brown speckled paste paper over boards, paper title label on spine, grey sprinkled edges. Venezia: Giambatista Albrizzi, 1745. |~||~||~||~||~| Second Edition, expanded with ca. 80 additional pages and 4 more engravings. One of "the most important guides to Venice, both for its richness of information and illustrations..." (Grand Tour: The Lure of Eighteenth Century Italy 88). The Forestiere illuminato is divided into six giornate in Venice, including descriptions of the palaces, churches, libraries, colleges, schools, monasteries, public monuments, etc., often listing the major works of art residing in each institution as of 1745. Dedicated to Frederick Christian, Prince-Elector of Saxony, the guide concludes with trips to the islands of the Venetian lagoon from San Giorgio all the way to Torcello. A final section lists Venetian festivals and public entertainments by the month. The double-page engravings are signed by F. Zucchi (1692-1764), including the last one, depicting the grand Chinese barge (peota) honoring the Elector of Saxony in the regatta of May 1716. It is likely Zucchi was responsible for a number of the unsigned plates as well. Giambatista Albrizzi (1698-1777), member of a distinguished family active in book publishing and bookselling in Venice for some 150 years, was also a patron and collector of art and a prominent figure in the cultural and intellectual life of eighteenth-century Venice. Albrizzi frequently collaborated with major Venetian artists of the day, such as Piazzetta, Zanetti, and Bartolozzi, who illustrated volumes for the Albrizzi press. On account of its huge success, this detailed guide to Venice was frequently reprinted in the eighteenth century, and again as recently as 2009. A very fine, very fresh copy, in original, unsophisticated condition. Cicogna 4479. Schlosser-Magnino 459. Berlin Katalog 2696. Robison, The Glory of Venice (1994), p. 516 (cites only the 1765 edition). Not in Cicognara.

        Impressment order to Captain Charles Windham, "By the Commissioners for Executing the Office of Lord High Admiral"

      London: Office of Admiralty, 1745. Printed sheet completed in manuscript, 395 x 235 mm., torn with slight loss at upper left, old folds; very good. With a particularly good example of Anson's signature. A rare example of one of the Admiralty-printed orders relating to impressment as promulgated in 1745. This particular example was made out to Captain Windham commanding HMS Duke, and is signed by Anson only a year after he returned from his circumnavigation, as well as his fellow Lords of the Admiralty George Grenville and Henry Legge, and Secretary to the Admiralty Thomas Corbett.Windham was thus empowered to impress seamen for his own command and for others of His Majesty's ships as needed. HMS Duke was a 17th-century ship, named Vanguard when first launched, rebuilt after sinking in 1703 and again rebuilt in 1739 as a 90-gun second rate, at which point the ship was renamed the Duke.Anson had joined the Admiralty Board in December 1744, soon after his return from the circumnavigation and at the height of his fame. He subsequently served as First Lord of the Admiralty from June 1751 to November 1756, and again from June 1757 until his death.

Broman on title, bookplates, library and duplicate stamp.Soulsby A catalogue of the works of Linnaeus 407. Krok Bibliotheca botanica suecana 17. Second edition published in 1755. The work was published during what has been called "Linnaeus' patriotic decade", when "Fauna Svecica" was also published and the three state-sponsored journeys were carried through. This copy has belonged to the vicar of Hudiksvall, Olof Johansson Broman (1676-1750), who also worked as a physician, but is mostly known for his work on Hälsingland, "Glysisvallur". Large parts of his library had been burnt by the Russians in 1721, including the first manuscript of "Glysisvallur". The library was sold at two auctions in 1757 and 1761. Broman had some contacts with Linnaeus and the latter visited him on his journey to Lapland in 1729. Linnaeus also had parts of Broman's library on loan and presented various scientific reports from him in the Swedish Academy of Science, where Broman fell through in the election of 1740.
