        The Bustard Cock [and] The Hen Bustard . [Pair of ornithological watercolours signed, depicting a male and female Great Bustard]

      London 1746 - Watercolour and gouache on laid paper, signed and dated within the images and with pen-and-ink inscriptions concerning the sizes of the birds. Sheet sizes: approx. 16 3/4 x 13 3/8 inches. Matted. A lovely pair of original watercolours by George Edwards. "Through the influence of Sir Hans Sloane, [Edwards] was chosen Librarian to the Royal College of Physicians . Almost immediately after he was appointed . Edwards commenced the preparation of a series of coloured drawings of animals and birds, used later to illustrate [his Natural History of Uncommon Birds]; for these he was awarded the Gold Medal of the Royal Society and subsequently elected a Fellow" (Lisney p.127). Edwards' would use these images within his Natural History of Uncommon Birds (part II, plates 73 and 74), with the background of Stonehenge as depicted on the present male Bustard as the background of the Hen Bustard. His description of the Hen Bustard makes special note of the difference in size between the male and female, and corresponds to the manuscript notations on the present watercolours. The watercolours were both drawn "from life" from specimens purchased in London in May 1746, "presented to me fresh and in fine order by Mr. Daniel Gwilt." The Great Bustard would become extinct in Great Britain in the 19th century. In 1760, Edwards sold his portfolio of watercolours used to illustrate his work, presumably including the present pair, to the Earl of Bute. Edwards "has been well described as an unscientific but very accurate describer and painter of animal life, and his writings will always remain of paramount authority, from the faithfulness of his description of many new birds, subsequently incorporated in the Linnaean System. He had, says Swainson, the simplicity and piety of Izaac Walton, and may be looked upon as one of our greatest worthies. He retired about 1764 to Plaistow, died July 23, 1773" (Mullens and Swann p.194). [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      (2), LX, 280, (3), (1bl) Paris, David, 1746, in-12, (2), LX, 280, (3), (1bl), IVpp, 3pl, veau marbré, dos à nerfs orné de motifs dorés, encadrement d'un filet à froid sur les plats, tranches rouges. (Rel. de l'ép.), PREMIERE EDITION FRANCAISE, très rare, de cet ouvrage qui fut imprimé à Augsburg pour la première fois en 1685. 4 figures gravées sur cuivre, imprimées sur 3 feuillets dépliants. Johan Mayer (fin XVIe-1644), plus connu sous le nom latinisé de Marius, étudia la médecine en Allemagne sous Scultetus. Il la pratiqua ensuite à Ulm, puis à Augsburg où il se fixa. Il laisssa de nombreux manuscrits dont celui du castor que Johan Francus publia en y ajoutant un commentaire très étendu. Déjà, à la fin du XIXe siècle, Michaud (XXVI, p. 688) jugeait cet ouvrage fort rare. Marius y donnait la recette de son "huile de castor" (castoreum), substance qu'il annonçait comme remède universel. Il est vrai que cette substance resta longtemps active dans la pharmacopée; Moyse Charas sur le frontispice de sa "Thériaque" (1668) a fait représenter le castor à côté des vipères. Des subtances tirées de ces deux animaux entraient dans la composition de la panacée universelle. Mouillure très claire dans la marge supérieure des premiers feuillets. Bon exemplaire en dépit d'un léger accroc à la coiffe supérieure

        18th Century Printed and Manuscript Prussian Passport for the Jew Abraham Salomon

      Nauen: Major of Nauen, 1746. Original document. Broadside. vg. Folio (12 1/2" x 8"). Rare printed one page document in Gothic script issued at Nauen by "Königl. Preuß. und Churf. Brandenburgis. zur gedachten Stadt verordnete Bürgermeister und Rathmanne, signed "Schencke" on 28th of July, 1746," and sealed with red wax. Protected by modern mylar in portfolio with clear plastic cover and black backing, stitched black leather frames with decorative bass corners.The printed part of the document attests that the bearer of this passport is not known to have been at any infected or suspicious location nor has been in contact with infected or suspicious people, and furthermore has applied for this passport and certification. Permission to travel in a safe and unimpeded fashion is herewith granted.Completed in handwriting for the Jew (Juden) Abraham Salomon and his son Marcus granting permission to travel from Nauen via Brandenburg to Halberstadt and Frankfurt/Main. Further handwritten entries on the reverse of the document show Salomon being in Frankfurt/Main on September 27, 1746, and in Berlin on August 28th, 1748.Atrocities of Chmielnicki (1648, in the Ukrainian part of southeastern Poland) and his Cossacks in the 17th Century drove Polish Jews back into western Germany. Prussia readmitted them in 1671 and this trend accelerated throughout the 18th century as other parts of Germany began to follow suit. In 1730 special letters of protection were granted to David Hirsch in Potsdam (province of Brandenburg) and soon to other Jewish manufacturers.An Abraham Salomon is mentioned in Corpus Constitutionum Marchicarum, part v, p. 167, Brandenburg 1740, and in Novum Corpus Constitutionum Prussico-Brandenburgensium praecipue Marchicarum, vol. 5, p. 537; a 1773 list of Jews contains the name Abraham Salomon. Text in German. Very light wear along edges and tear in middle fold of bottom half of document. Some staining and light foxing, mainly on lower right corner of verso. Remnants of wax seal on front, miniscule on verso. Overall in very good condition.

        Myologie complette en couleur et grandeur naturelle, composée de l'essai et de la suite de l'essai d'anatomie, en tableaux imprimés....

      Paris: Gautier, Quillau pere & fils, and Lamesle, 1746. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Elephant Folio - over 15 - 23" tall. Large folio (517 x 361 mm and 758 x 539 mm). Two parts in two volumes with 20 fine mezzotint plates printed in four colours. Part I with general title printed in red and black, printed part title, dedication leaf, advertisement/privilege leaf, 9 pp. of explanatory text, additional advertisment leaf and 9 plates; part II with 11 life-size plates and 11 pp. of explanatory text, with each leaf bound before its corresponding plate. Old vellum over pasteboard (recased and resewn, some skilful repairs, minor staining and wear). Very little marginal browning and occasional spotting of text and plates, small minor repairs on versos of large plates, some minor marginal dampstaining and wear in second volume. Provenance: Pierre Amalric (bookplate to front pastedown of part I), sold at Christie's NY (sale 9232, 9 June 1999, lot 42, $23,000). All in all a fine copy, the plates in bright colours and without the aging varnish found in some copies. ----Choulant-Frank, p. 270-74; NLM/Blake p.169; Singer 1-20; Wellcome III, p. 97; Franklin, Early Color Printing, 1977, pp. 43-44; Garrison-Morton 398; Lilien, Jacob Christoph Le Blon, 1985, pp. 145-46. FIRST EDITION. Gautier's first project was the production of 8 prints of the face, neck, head, tongue and larynx, which he issued in 1745, followed one year later by a second group of 12 mostly larger prints showing muscles of the pharynx, torso, arms and legs. A year later he issued the two works together under the general title 'Myologie complette'. Gautier made the drawings and the mezzotint plates for all these images from cadavers dissected by Joseph Guichard Duverney, lecturer in anatomy at the Jardin du Roi. "The dedication and copyright notices make no bones about Gautier's claims as inventor and skilled practitioner in this new art of colour printing. Duverney, the academic partner, signs the dedication (to Lapeyronie, the king's doctor) asserting that colour printing can nowhere make a greater contribution to scientific understanding than in anatomy" (Franklin). Among the plates in part II is the fascinating 'Ange Anatomique,' "the muscles of her back stripped out like an angel's wing, while she, with hair arranged neatly in the style of her day, looks back over her shoulder in a spirit of calm enquiry, showing the healthy complexion of an attractive face" (Franklin). Jacques Christophe Le Blon invented the three-color method of color printing in mezzotint. For the printing process, he obtained a royal patent in England from King George I in 1719, and also published a small book describing the process in 1725. His attempt to commercialise his process through a company called The Picture Office failed, and he eventually re-established himself in Paris, obtaining a privilege in 1737, and in 1739 a twenty-year patent for France for the use of his color-printing process. In 1740, Le Blon advertised that he was taking subscriptions for a treatise on anatomy illustrated with 60 plates printed in color. However, before he could do much work on this project he died in 1741, leaving only one anatomical plate, which was completed and published by Jean Robert in 1742. Immediately after Le Blon's death, a printer and engraver who had worked briefly for Le Blon, Jacques-Fabien Gautier (1716-1785), who would later add "d'Agoty" to his name, claimed to have enhanced Le Blon's process by adding black (though Le Blon had previously used a black plate on occasion), and obtained the French royal privilege for color printing for thirty years. However, the heirs of Le Blon objected, and in 1742 the King withdrew Gautier's privilege. In 1742 Gautier purchased the privilege from Le Blon's heirs. Why Le Blon thought the color-printing process was appropriate for anatomy is unclear. Perhaps he sensed that there was a market for a new style of books on human anatomy. Whatever Le Blon's motivation, when Gautier set out to commercialize color printing after Le Blon's death he decided to exploit the market for books on anatomy and natural history. Over the next thirty years Gautier would draw, engrave, and print in color a series of books which were as radically original and dramatic in their size and artistic composition as they were original in their manner of production. Though all of Gautier's books contained some explanatory text, it was overwhelmed by the power of the images, and in turn, whatever science might have been shown in the images was overwhelmed by the drama of the color and the composition. (Lilien). *Gautier intended the varnished versions of his images, which he offered at an additional charge, to resemble oil paintings - an artistic quality not attempted previously in anatomical illustration. The varnish, however, ages poorly, and those deluxe copies are now often in poor condition. Unvarnished plates in bright state, as here, are now more desirable. This copy is also unusual in that the life-size plates 10-20 normally found folded are here bound with their smaller format text leaves in a second larger volume. This has the advantage that the folds are not within the image. Near Fine....

      Gautier, Quillau pere & fils, and Lamesle, Paris 1746 - Large folio (517 x 361 mm and 758 x 539 mm). Two parts in two volumes with 20 fine mezzotint plates printed in four colours. Part I with general title printed in red and black, printed part title, dedication leaf, advertisement/privilege leaf, 9 pp. of explanatory text, additional advertisment leaf and 9 plates; part II with 11 life-size plates and 11 pp. of explanatory text, with each leaf bound before its corresponding plate. Old vellum over pasteboard (recased and resewn, some skilful repairs, minor staining and wear). Very little marginal browning and occasional spotting of text and plates, small minor repairs on versos of large plates, some minor marginal dampstaining and wear in second volume. Provenance: Pierre Amalric (bookplate to front pastedown of part I), sold at Christie's NY (sale 9232, 9 June 1999, lot 42, $23,000). All in all a fine copy, the plates in bright colours and without the aging varnish found in some copies. ---- Choulant-Frank, p. 270-74; NLM/Blake p.169; Singer 1-20; Wellcome III, p. 97; Franklin, Early Color Printing, 1977, pp. 43-44; Garrison-Morton 398; Lilien, Jacob Christoph Le Blon, 1985, pp. 145-46. FIRST EDITION. Gautier's first project was the production of 8 prints of the face, neck, head, tongue and larynx, which he issued in 1745, followed one year later by a second group of 12 mostly larger prints showing muscles of the pharynx, torso, arms and legs. A year later he issued the two works together under the general title 'Myologie complette'. Gautier made the drawings and the mezzotint plates for all these images from cadavers dissected by Joseph Guichard Duverney, lecturer in anatomy at the Jardin du Roi. "The dedication and copyright notices make no bones about Gautier's claims as inventor and skilled practitioner in this new art of colour printing. Duverney, the academic partner, signs the dedication (to Lapeyronie, the king's doctor) asserting that colour printing can nowhere make a greater contribution to scientific understanding than in anatomy" (Franklin). Among the plates in part II is the fascinating 'Ange Anatomique,' "the muscles of her back stripped out like an angel's wing, while she, with hair arranged neatly in the style of her day, looks back over her shoulder in a spirit of calm enquiry, showing the healthy complexion of an attractive face" (Franklin). Jacques Christophe Le Blon invented the three-color method of color printing in mezzotint. For the printing process, he obtained a royal patent in England from King George I in 1719, and also published a small book describing the process in 1725. His attempt to commercialise his process through a company called The Picture Office failed, and he eventually re-established himself in Paris, obtaining a privilege in 1737, and in 1739 a twenty-year patent for France for the use of his color-printing process. In 1740, Le Blon advertised that he was taking subscriptions for a treatise on anatomy illustrated with 60 plates printed in color. However, before he could do much work on this project he died in 1741, leaving only one anatomical plate, which was completed and published by Jean Robert in 1742. Immediately after Le Blon's death, a printer and engraver who had worked briefly for Le Blon, Jacques-Fabien Gautier (1716-1785), who would later add "d'Agoty" to his name, claimed to have enhanced Le Blon's process by adding black (though Le Blon had previously used a black plate on occasion), and obtained the French royal privilege for color printing for thirty years. However, the heirs of Le Blon objected, and in 1742 the King withdrew Gautier's privilege. In 1742 Gautier purchased the privilege from Le Blon's heirs. Why Le Blon thought the color-printing process was appropriate for anatomy is unclear. Perhaps he sensed that there was a market for a new style of books on human anatomy. . .

Ifølge Table des Figures skal det være 18 pl., men iflg Bring mangler alle undersøkte eksemplarer prospektene over Piteå og Torneå og disse har sansyligvis aldri blitt utgitt.Historiens kanskje mest berømte ekspedisjon for lengdegradoppmåling [1736-37], ikke minst for å konstatere at jorden er flatrykt ved polpunktene. Ekspedisjonen besto bl. a. Maupertuis - som skrev egen bok om den - Anders Celsius, matematikkgeniet Clairaut, samt presten Fader Outhier. Den 20 juni 1736 ble de samlet i Torneå, og på bare 63 dager hadde de målt opp en triangelkjede på 107 km. Ekspedisjonen var finasiert av den franske kong Ludvig XV og ble gjennomført på bare ett år, noe som var eksepsjonelt med tidens utrustning og reisemåter. Outhier skriver om ekspedisjonen og resultatene, men også mye om Tornedalen og livet der; Tornedalingene var rene, kunnskapsrike og gjestfrie.

        Gedanken von der wahren Schätzung der lebendigen Kräfte und Beurtheilung der Beweise derer sich Herr von Leibnitz und andere Mechaniker in dieser Streitsache bedienet haben, nebst einigen vorhergehenden Betrachtungen welche die Kraft der Körper überhaupt betreffen, durch Immanuel Kant.

      Königsberg: Martin Eberhard Dorn,, 1746 [recte 1749]. . Octavo (195 x 117 mm). Contemporary sprinkled sheep and speckled boards, spine decorated with gilt rules and floral device in compartments, morocco label, all edges sprinkled. With two folding plates at the end. Lower edge and corners very lightly rubbed; an excellent copy. Very rare first edition of Kant's first book. "In his early years Kant pondered the nature of space and time first from the point of view of Leibniz and then of Newton, but eventually he found both positions unsatisfactory. In his Thoughts on the true estimation of Living Forces [the present work] he took Leibniz's view and tried to explain the nature of space by means of the forces of unextended substances (monads) that cause such substances to interact. He attempted to account for the threefold dimensionality of space by appealing to the laws that govern such interactions; but he was not very successful, as he himself admitted" (DSB).

        Fragment du Plan de Bruxelles Pris Entre la Porte de Namur et Celle de Malle.

      [c.1746] - The eastern fortifications of Brussels Manuscript plan on an irregular format made up of two sheets joined; original hand colour. The plan shows the developments to the fortifications around the eastern part of Brussells, thus where the Emperor's Palace is located. The left sheet has been added to the right one seeing as the title cites the Porte de Namur which is now in the middle of the plan. The key on the left foreground explains that the gate on the left hand side is the Porte de Louvain. The plan also presents two profiles: one of a fort with precise measurements and one of the covered paths. These are also highlighted in yellow to show that they have been completely repaired. 440 by 830mm. (17.25 by 32.75 inches).

      Twelve folding engraved plates. 1 p.l., 300 pp.; 1 p.l., 166 pp.; 1 p.l., 165 pp. Three vols. in one. 4to, cont. sheep-backed mottled boards (minor rubbing, some foxing as is usual with this book). Berlin: A. Haude & J.C. Spener, 1746-50-51. First edition of one of Euler's scarcer works; this collection contains separate monographs on astronomy, optics, magnetism, electricity, mathematics, and physics and includes several of Euler's most important and fundamental works. Vol. I deals mostly with astronomy and optics. It is valuable for Euler's tables of the sun and moon and for his discussion of the problem of perturbations. Euler's studies in astronomy embraced a great variety of problems: determination of the orbits of comets and planets, calculation of the parallax of the sun, the physical nature of comets, celestial mechanics, etc. With regard to optics, Euler herein rejected the dominant corpuscular theory of light and constructed his own theory in which he attributed the cause of light to peculiar oscillations of ether. Vol. II is concerned with physics and mathematics. Topics examined here are the propagation of sound and light, analysis, the theory of differential equations, and ellipses. In Vol. III, "Euler adopts the Cartesian doctrine of pores and magnetic particles, magnetic matter is more subtile than the ether itself and is propagated through a magnet in one direction only, p. 10; declination and dip explained, p. 30."-Wheeler Gift Cat. 366. A very good set. Engraved bookplate of Canterzani. ❧ D.S.B., IV, pp. 467-84. Houzeau & Lancaster 3482. Sotheran, Supp., 2242-"Rare.".

Las oraciones se habían impreso originalmente en 1743, en Livorno, en la imprenta de Abraham Meldola, con el título de 'Shivhei Todah'. Su autor, Malachi ben Jacob, fue un teólogo estudioso del Talmud y una de las autoridades de la Kabala más reconocidas en su momento. Por su parte, el traductor, Abraham de Bargas, era un médico de origen español, a donde había llegado como médico del duque Antoine VI de Gramont, que se afincó allí como médico de la comunidad judía de Livorno cuando, en 1741, falleció el duque. Cuatro años antes de traducir las oraciones de ben Jacob, Bargas había publicado sobre ese mismo terremoto una 'Fiel Relazion delos Terremotos, que siguieron en esta Ciudad de Liorna en el Mes de Henero de este Anno Mill Setezientos y quarenta, e dos.- Livorno, Abraham Meldola, 1742', dedicada precisamente al siguiente duque de Gramont, hermano del que fuera su protector. Por delante de la oración, al principio del volumen, figuran seis sonetos. El autor de uno de ellos fue el haham Raphael Meldola, (Leghorn, 1685-1748), elegido rabino de Pisa en 1722, autor de una obra teológica y ética considerable y de otra narración de cómo transcurrió aquel terremoto, esta vez en hebreo, 'Shever ba-Mezarim.- Livorno, Abraham Meldola, 1742'(1). Y, finalmente, añadida a las oraciones por el terremoto, el impreso recoge (p. 156-171) una oración para los enfermos, escrita también por Malachi ben Jacob y también traducida por Abraham de Bargas. De tirada seguramente corta, no localizamos que existan ejemplares en España. Y fuera únicamente econtramos ejemplares en la Biblioteca nazionale centrale (Firenze), la British Library (London), la Biblioteca Nacional de Israel y en la Leeds University.- // (1) Puede verse un estudio del conjunto de la reacción de la cultura hebrea y sefardí de Livorno al terremoto en seforim.blogspot.com.es/2014/01/the-jewish-reaction-tolivorno.html.
