      John Nourse, London, 1746. First Edition. Hardcover (Full Leather). Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. Size: 12mo (approx 4 x 7 ins). ..

Preface states: "This book is calculated, not only for the Entertainment of Youth, but, likewise, for the Amusement of those, who prefer the innocent Pleasures of a rural Life".... [A Sotheby's sales record for 1995 states "Both Freeman and originally the British Library, have listed this work as containing 172 plates, according to the numbers on each plate. This system of numbering refers in fact to the relevant facing page of text. Comparing this copy with that in the British Library, it can be confirmed that a complete copy should have the engraved frontispiece depicting Adam with the Beasts and 155 plates. The British Library copy lacks plates 158/159 and text pages 155-158, now present in facsimile taken from this copy. This present copy lacks plates 12/13, present in facsimile taken from the British Library copy.]..... Our copy has all 155 plates plus engraved frontis of Adam with the beasts. Only defect of note is that some 3/4 plates of birds have been coloured by an amateur hand. Binding is contemporary full calf which has been rebacked, A rare copy !! Of the 14 listed on a copac search all bar 2 appear to be electronic.! Quantity Available: 1. Category: Natural History & Resources; England; 18th century; Animals & Birds. Inventory No: 15726..

        Souci des jardins. Calendula officinalis. L. [From: Fleurs dessinées d'après nature,... Recueil utile aux amateurs, aux jeunes artistes, aux élèves des écoles centrales et aux dessinateurs des manufactures].[Paris, 1799-1801]. Stipple engraving on unwatermarked wove paper (56 x 36.5 cm), printed in colour à la poupée and finished by hand, of a Calendula officinalis showing two branches with seven flowers and buds in various stages, signed "P.F. Le Grand sculp." In passepartout.

      Van Boven & Segal, Gerard & Cornelis van Spaendonck, pp. 178-184, no. 13a; for the series: Blunt, pp. 175-176; Hunt 673 note; cf. An Oak Spring flora 58, 92 etc. Magnificent illustration of a Calendula officinalis, commonly known as a pot marigold, printed in colour and delicately finished by hand. This flowering plant is probably native to southern Europe, but also found further north in Europe and elsewhere in warm temperate regions. It is originally part of a series of flower prints by Gerard van Spaendonck, the only engraved work published during his lifetime, "entitled Fleurs dessinées d'après Nature, which contains twenty-four magnificent drawings, brilliantly interpreted in stipple by P.F. Le Grand and other engravers. These are probably the finest engravings of flowers ever made" (Blunt) and "they are among the most breath-taking series of plates in the [Hunt] library" (Hunt). The series was originally published in 6 parts with 4 plates and available printed in black, printed in colour, or (as in the present case) printed in colour and finished by hand.Gerard van Spaendonck (1746-1822) was a proponent of the Dutch school of floral painting. He singlehandedly transformed the genre of flower painting in France, where he managed to unite the realism of the Dutch school with the suave elegance of the French school. In 1780 he became Professeur de Peinture de Fleurs at the Jardin des Plantes. Among his many pupils was Pierre Joseph Redouté.A few minor spots and a couple minor restorations along the extremities, otherwise in very good condition.

        Politique du médecin de Machiavel, ou Le chemin de la fortune ouvert aux médecins. Ouvrage réduit en forme de Conseils, par le Docteur Fum-Ho-Ham, & traduit sur l'Original Chinois, par un Nouveau Maître és Arts de St Cosme. Première partie. Qui contient les portraits des plus célèbres médecins de Pékin

      Chez les Frères Bernard 1746 - - Chez les Frères Bernard, à Amsterdam [Lyon] 1746, petit in-8 (12x18,5cm), xxviij ; 64pp., relié. - Édition originale parue anonymement à Lyon et non à Amsterdam comme le stipule la page de titre. La seconde édition parue à la même date chez le même éditeur posséde une pagination différente et un format plus petit (in-12) ; elle ne doit pas être confondue avec la véritable originale (64 pp. pour la nôtre contre 96 pp. pour l'autre). Reliure en plein parchemin. Gardes changées. Il s'agit d'un pamphlet dans lequel l'auteur attaque et ridiculise les principaux médecins de l'époque, et expose les grands traits de sa doctrine matérialiste. Le livre fut condamné à être lacéré et brûlé par arrêt du Parlement du 9 juillet 1746. On oublie trop souvent que La Mettrie fut lui-même médecin militaire avant d'être contraint d'abandonner son poste et de s'expatrier en raison de ses publications. Au travers d'une fiction dans laquelle un voyageur s'embarque pour la Chine pour y étudier la médecine et les médecins chinois, satire de la médecine contemporaine et de ses médecins ; l'ouvrage est censé être une traduction du chinois d'un grand manuscrit de médecine. Toutes les éditions anciennes de ce texte sont aujourd'hui devenues rares. Notre exemplaire présente en marge, à la plume, les « clés » de tous les portraits des prétendus médecins chinois composant l'ouvrage. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Genuine Original edition, which differs from that published the same year by the same publisher in its pagination (64pp. For ours against 96pp. For the other).

      Paris, Saugrain jeune, 1746, in 12, de 2ff., XXI+Vpp., 2ff. de table des chapitres, 209pp., 4ff. de table des matières, 1f. de privilège, 1 planche gravée représentant des cages à oiseaux, et 4 planches de musique gravée dont se 2 dépl., pl. maroquin rouge ancien, dos lisse orné, encadr. de triple filets dorés sur les plats, tranches dorées. Bel exemplaire. Le naturaliste Hervieux de Chanteloup était inspecteur des bois à batir à Paris. Cet ouvrage a été publié pour la première fois en 1705. Cette édition contient aussi l'extrait du Dictionnaire de Trévoux consacré aux serins. C'est à la fin du XVe siècle que le serin vert des Canaries fut introduit auprès de la noblesse, annonçant la naissance d'une passion : l'élevage des oiseaux en cage. Ils étaient d'autant plus attractifs qu'ils chantaient bien. Excellents imitateurs, il était recommandé de leur jouer des airs de musique pour les leur enseigner. On inventa aussi les "serinettes", boîtes à musique dont se servaient leurs propriétaires pour apprendre de nouveaux chants aux oiseaux. Les 4 planches de musique contiennent justement une quinzaine d'airs à jouer sur un flageolet.

      chez Didot (Moutardier per l'ultimo volume), 1746. Venti volumi in-quarto (cm. 25,5), pp. 12.000 ca. complessive. Con ritratto dell'autore all'antiporta del primo volume e 595 tavole f.t. incise in rame (di cui molte ripiegate). Solida ed elegante legatura uniforme, strettamente coeva, in piena pelle bazzana, dorsi a nervi con titoli e ricchi fregi in oro. Esemplare genuino ed in ottimo stato di conservazione generale. Si segnalano i seguenti difetti: piccole mancanze limitate a 3/4 cuffie, tarletto al margine bianco di poche carte di due volumi, una gora chiara all'angolo delle prime carte del quattordicesimo volume ed una decina di tavole un po' brunite. Per quanto riguarda la collazione: l'opera è stata minuziosamente controllata e tutti volumi coincidono esattamente con gl'indici delle tavole, con le bibliografie e con i paragoni eseguiti su altri esemplari. Solo il ventesimo ed ultimo volume, che non possiede un indice, si presenta con 8 tavole (7 vedute di cui 5 ripiegate ed una carta geografica - carta dell'isola di Tahiti) ed è verosimilmente privo di 8 ulteriori tavole. Opera di straordinaria bellezza ed importanza, munita di un apparato iconografico ricchissimo composto da carte geografiche e vedute.

        Autograph letter, signed, to Madame de Chalendray (Caloline Thérèse Jeanne Bordes de Chalendray?)].[Paris], 12 Floréal VI [= 1 May 1798]. 4to. Autograph letter in French, signed, written in brown ink on one side of a single leaf of laid paper.With: [PORTRAIT]. BOILLY, Julien-Léopold. Van Spaendonck, (Gérard) [Paris], [1821?]. Folio. Lithographic portrait on wove paper, mounted on laid paper (ca. 1830?) with a manuscript note at the head.

      - Gerard van Spaendonck (1746-1822), born in Tilburg, studied painting with Harreyns in Antwerp and is known especially for his botanical oil paintings and watercolours. He moved to Paris in 1769 and became a painter of miniatures at the court of Louis XVI. In 1780 he was appointed professor of flower painting at the Jardin du Roi in Paris, which became the Jardin des Plantes at the Muséum Royale d’Histoire Naturelle in 1793, where Spaendonck also helped run the Muséum. At the Jardin he taught the brilliant young botanical painter Pierre-Joseph Redouté, who was to become the most famous flower painter of all time. Van Spaendonck was elected to the Institut Royale de France in 1795. He here writes to Madame de Chalendray, perhaps Caloline Bordes de Chalendray (ca. 1780-ca. 1799), then about eighteen years old and recently married, sending her two tickets for a private viewing of the galleries at the Muséum and (on the same or a different day) to see the elephants. These two Asian elephants, Hans and Parkie, were confiscated by the Revolutionary government from the menagerie of Stadholder Willem V, only about five weeks before the present letter.The portrait of Van Spaendonck, signed "Jul Boilly" (1796-1874), notes that he is a member of the Légion d'Honneur, an honour he received in 1804, but does not note his death in 1822. It has been dated 1821 on grounds unknown to us and cannot be much earlier, given the artist's age.Two edges of the letter reinforced on the back, some wrinkles and old folds, but still in very good condition. A letter from the botanical artist Gérard van Spaendonck, inviting a young lady to see Paris's new elephants.

The second part contains the first German expenditure of the 1708 and 1723 first Latin of reports Scheuchzers appeared over its alpine journeys. "Scheuchzer was beside Conrad Gessner and Albrecht of Haller a most important universal scholar, that Switzerland it own calls. It combined a physician, a natural scientist, a mathematician, a paleontologist, a Geodaeten, a geographer, a historian, a Numismatiker, a theologian and a Philologen "(Fueter) in itself. Scheuchzers natural history was trailblazing in the area of regional studies, alpine research and the physical geography of the Swiss high mountains. With its historical data this expenditure beside Tschudis chronicle formed one of the most important sources for Schillers "Tell". On its journeys Scheuchzer made the first barometric levellings in the mountains, examined the glaciers, collected Petrefakten etc.. Under the copper boards are to emphasize the beautiful map Graubuendens of G. Walser, the interior opinion of a cheese factory, the representation of a total solar eclipse, illustrations of minerals and petrifying as well as opinions among other things from bath Pfaefers, Walterswil, pc. God hard etc.. Johann George Sulzers writings in the appendix offer valuable, likewise additions supported by own observations (Curtis Schuh's Bibliography of Mineralogy, The Mineralogical Record).
