      Mainz and Frankfurt: Johann Hoffners, 1746. Full Calf. Good. 740, 216 pp. With 77 copper plate engravings and a portion (about 25 percent) of a map of Jerusalem, showing the walls of the ancient city, Pilate's palace, the Garden of Gethsemane, etc. Two books bound together. The book is printed in a variety of differing type fonts which differentiate such things as the prayers for feast days from the narrative of Christ's life and lives of those in his circle. Full Brown calf with raised bands at spine and remnants of straps and clasps over real wooden boards. Boards professionally repaired. Leather heavily scuffed and rubbed, with considerable dryness, yet nonetheless fitting in this condition for work at hand. Early pages have margin losses. Heavily toned elsewhere, along with at times heavy soilage and wear. Overall still good. In a specially made slipcase with hand-made paper skin. (Slipcase doesn't cover all of boards, and this was deliberate choice because spine is thicker than opposite edge of volume.) The book is 8.5 by 7 inches and 3.5 inches thick.

        Meine Lebensschicksale als Vorsteher meiner Erziehungsinstitute in Burgdorf und Iferten. Leipzig, Gerhard Fleischer, 1826. 8vo. Contemporary stiff paper wrappers.

      Israel, Pestalozzi Bibliogr. I, 45 1. First edition of the public account, rendered by the famous Swiss educational reformer Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi (1746-1827), of what happened during his presidency of the pedagogical institutions in Burgdorf and Yverdun. He had hoped that with time the results of his work would silence the disputes around it, but now that he is forced to wind up his school almost completely, he feels he must no longer keep silent and gives a full account of what had happened at these educational establishments. The book explains about the animosity between two of his most gifted pupils and co-workers, Schmid and Niederer, and the Niederer family's lawsuit against him. Pestalozzi was acquitted of all charges.Good copy, slightly foxed.

        L'Amerique suivant le R. P. Charlevoix J.te, Mr. De La Condamine, et plusiers autres nouv.le observations

      Paris 1746 - Copper-engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline. Table at the bottom left. Mid-18th century French map of North and South America showing the latest Russian and English discoveries in the Arctic: one of the earliest depictions of the discoveries of Bering's second expedition. This decorative map by Le Rouge shows North and South America, with the discoveries of Charlevoix and Condamine added in Canada and the Amazon, respectively. Interestingly, it also shows Aleksei Chirikov's discoveries on the northwest coast during Bering's second expedition, as well as Middleton's Repulse Bay in the Arctic. Concerning the former, Wroth writes: "In 1746 the royal geographer, George Louis Le Rouge, brought out a map entitled L'Amerique, in the northwest corner of which is shown a portion of the 1741 routes of Chirikov and De L'Isle de la Croyere to and from the American coast, the earliest cartographical record, it seems from present knowledge, of the American discoveries of the second Bering expedition. This map antedates by six years the publication of the De L'Isle -Buache map . There is ground for belief that during his stay in Russia of twenty-one years J.N. Delisle sent to France through the French embassy copies of maps which passed through his hands as an employee and associate of the Academy of Science. Doubtless intended for the information of the French government, these would have become available to Le Rouge as royal geographer" (Wroth, Early Cartographer of the Pacific, p. 222). Since Wroth's essay, copies of the Le Rouge map have been found without the discoveries of Bering's second expedition, suggesting two issues of the map, with the second issue possibly issued at a date later than 1746 but retaining the original date in the cartouche.

      London: Various publishers, 1739 - 1746 - A good, single collection 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 observors, 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. 1.

In Stirpes novae (New herbs), Charles L'Héritier de Brutelle (1746-1800) describes a great number of new taxa, many of which grew in his own garden, the gardens of his friends and in the Jardin du Roi. He had ample means and engaged the young botanical artist Pierre-Joseph Redouté (1759-1840) to draw the majority of the plates. The two developed a close friendship and L'Héritier taught Redouté the basics of plant taxonomy and dissection. The friendship proved a determining factor in Redouté's career and enabled him to fully develop his extraordinary talents.Bookblock in good condition, with some light spotting. The binding badly worn, with the headbands and the boards damaged.

        Mes Souvenirs politiques.

      S.l., s.d., - parties in-8 ou in-4, [826] ff., couverts de diverses écritures fines, moyennement lisibles, nombreuses ratures et biffures, en feuilles, boîte demi-chagrin rouge, intérieur de daim gris. Exceptionnel dossier manuscrit, conservé dans la famille Portalis, et contenant une partie des Souvenirs inédits du fils de Jean-Etienne-Marie Portalis (1746-1807), considéré comme un des Pères du Code civil : Joseph-Marie Portalis (1778-1858), qui a dû les rédiger sous l'Empire, peut-être pendant la période de repos forcé que lui valut sa retentissante disgrâce de janvier 1811. En tout cas, il fait mention à un moment de Joseph Bonaparte, connu pendant la Révolution, et donne la date de 1807 qui fournit au moins un terminus a quo. Jamais terminées, jamais vraiment mises au propre, ces notes, parfois très confuses sous les variantes et corrections, sont passées après la mort du Premier Président de la Cour de Cassation à sa famille. Il est là encore difficile de préciser lequel de ses nombreux enfants en eut la garde : la logique voudrait qu'il s'agît de son fils aîné survivant, Harold Jean-Baptiste (1810-1899), mais la mention de "mon cher beau-père" en plusieurs endroits du document oriente vers le gendre de Portalis, Rodolphe Saillard (1789-1878), époux de sa fille aînée Stéphanie (1802-1865). LE SEUL MANUSCRIT CONNU DES MEMOIRES DE PORTALIS [Codicologie] Toutes ces considérations expliquent que le dossier que nous présentons n'est pas uniforme ni d'un seul tenant, comme en rêveraient les amateurs naïfs de manuscrits historiques, mais se compose de plusieurs strates rédactionnelles successives qu'il importe de bien distinguer : I. Le manuscrit autographe de l'auteur proprement dit. Il a été composé de façon très désordonnée sur un grand nombre de feuillets volants de différentes dimensions, puis assemblé de façon parfois encore plus désorganisée en liasses chiffrées séparément. Le texte lui-même est scandé de divisions apposées par l'auteur en chiffres romains. Le problème est que, comme le reste du texte, cette division a souvent été retouchée et ses éléments recomptés, si bien que, sous certaines biffures, il est parfois impossible de savoir à quel numéro d'ordre on a affaire. 1. Heureusement, sous une petite chemise orangée, a été composée et réunie une petite Table des matières, qui couvre l'ensemble de ce premier jet rédactionnel ([16] ff. chiffrés postérieurement à l'encre rouge). Cette table indique les divisions en chiffres romains (mêmes biffures que dans le texte avec souvent, vers la fin, une absence de correspondance entre les numéros de la table et ceux du manuscrit), le titre de chaque partie, et également en partie le chiffrage ajouté postérieurement aux feuillets. Son étude attentive permet à peu près de réordonner l'ensemble des feuillets et de mettre au jour les lacunes. 2. On a donc les parties conservées suivantes, formant un texte plus ou moins continu depuis 1787 : a) Un premier ensemble de ff. chiffrés 1-141, correspondant aux parties I-LXXX (1787- décembre 1793) ; b) Un deuxième ensemble de ff. chiffrés 1-50, correspondant aux parties LXXXI-CXVIII (janvier 1794 - août 1794) ; c) Un troisième ensemble de ff. chiffrés 1-174, correspondant aux parties CXXX-CCXXX (fin de la Convention jusqu'en 1795) ; d) Un quatrième ensemble de ff. chiffrés 200-260, correspondant aux parties CCLXIV-CCCVII (Directoire jusqu'au 18 fructidor) ; e) Un cahier à part, sous une chemise intitulée Septembre 1797, et comprenant 44 ff. chiffrés (le départ pour l'exil du père et du fils). Comme l'on voit, manquent les paragraphes CXIX-CXXIX (correspondant à la libération de Portalis Père après Thermidor et à son retour dans la vie politique), ainsi que CCXXXI-CCLXIII (à partir du 5 brumaire an IV - 27 octobre 1795 jusqu'à la formation du Comité royaliste). 3. A part, se trouve encore un ensemble de chemises (intitulé Fragments des mémoires de mon beau-père) qui contient des ff. épars (environ 100), membra disjecta de textes insérables ou non dans [Attributes: Signed Copy]

A rare complete set of the most important and finest entomological German publication of the 18th century. Our copy comprises the rare supplement by Kleemann as well the even rarer second supplement by Schwarz published in 1793, of which only a few copies are known. Most bibliographies do not mention the Schwarz supplement. The work was published by Roesel and his son-in-law Kleemann, both lived in Bavaria, in Nürnberg, working as artists, and both were ardent students of local natural history./"Roesel, who studied at first with his father and then with his uncle Wilhelm, an animal painter in Merseburg, later became a pupil of the famous Preisler in Nuremberg. After living in Copenhagen from 1726 to 1728 he returned to Nuremberg for good, and there, besides painting portraits and drawings, he applied himself in particular to the study of nature. He collected insects, their eggs and larvae, studied the process of hatching, pupation, and emergence, and painted all this in a most meticulous way, as Kleemann tells us. His manuscripts, with 406 illustrations, are now in the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek in Munich. Roesel also made the engravings of his drawings and, until his death in 1757, his 'loving and diligent spouse' contributed fine colouring to the prints" (Nissen. Bestiaries).//Our copy has the bookplate of Boisuval. J.B.A. Boisduval (1801-1879) 'was one of France's most revered lepidopterists (P. Gilbert p. 136).//The text was printed on thin paper and as in all copies, is prone to foxing. Our copy likewise has some foxing to the text. One leaf with small paper tear. The plates being printed on fine thick paper have no foxing and are in mint condition. A nice uniformly bound set.//Junk, Rara p. 159 (our copy has the same collation of plates); Nissen ZBI, 3466.

        Despeza que fez v. Sr. D. Jozé de Menezes com seu cazamento na jornada a Viena, joyas, e concerto da caza, e os dias da sua chegada." Manuscript on paper, in Portuguese.

      , , @Signed at Lisbon, 23 January 1746. - Written in ink, in a large, legible hand. 8 leaves, with 9 pp. of text. Folio (36 x 24.9 cm.), stitched; outside blanks (somewhat soiled) serve as wrappers. First (blank) leaf detached; internally fine. Overall in very good condition. ---- Records the expenses incurred by D. José de Menezes during his trip to Vienna in 1743 to marry D. Luiza Gonzaga, Countess of Rappach. Travel expenses are listed as well as expenditures for a portrait of himself and (among other items) for diamonds, furniture, cloth, tailors, silverware, plates and chocolate. The entries vary in quality; some include names of sellers. The sellers are more likely agents and middlemen than the actual purveyors of the products; on p. 8 are mentioned Avram and David Fernandes Nunes in Holland, almost surely exiled Portuguese Jews. The document is signed at the end by D. Diogo de Menezes y Tavora and Francisco de Mello.The Menezes family had close ties with Austria. D. José's father, D. Diogo de Menezes e Tavora (Morgado de Valada na Ordem de Christo, Alcaide mor de Silves, Veador da Casa da Rainha D. Maria Anna and her Estribeiro mor) married an Austrian lady-in-waiting of D. João V's queen, D. Maria Anna of Austria. D. José was the second child and eldest son, born in 1713. When he returned to Portugal after his wedding, his wife became a lady-in-waiting to the queen.---- On the Menezes family, see Sousa, @História genealógica da casa real portuguesa XI, 138-41.

      Sorau, bey Gottlob Hebold, Buchh.,1746.. Erste Ausgabe. 21x18 cm. 3 w. Bll., 8 Bll., 175 S., Kupfertafeln, 3 w. Bll. Halbpergamentband m. hs. (vermutlich später) Rückentitel. Deckel und Kanten beschabt. Innen sehr guter Zustand. Wenige vereinzelte kl. Flecke, wenige Seiten mit leichtem Wasserrand. Einige Einrisse auf den beiden Seiten des Vorberichts alt hinterlegt. Einriss des Titelblatts oben professionell restauriert.. Erste Ausgabe. - Ungewöhnliches und seltenes naturwissenschaftlich-apokalyptisches Werk aus der chiliastischen Tradition, welches das Weltende am Tag des Jüngsten Gerichts beschreibt. Mit sehr schöner gestochener Schlussvignette in tiefem, kräftigem Druck. Der Autor Joducos Leopold Frisch (1714-87) war Pfarrer im Cottwitz, Glogau (Schweinitz, Saabor) und Grüneberg. Er entwickelt in dieser mystischen Schrift die Vision, dass sich am letzten Tag die gesamte Atmonsphäre entzündet und ins Weltall getrieben wird. Alle Vulkane werden gleichzeitig ausbrechen und die Erdkruste so erschüttern, dass sie in sich zusammenbricht. Neben der biblisch-apokalyptischen Tradition gründet Frischs Darstellung auch auf geologische und metereologische Erkenntnisse. Die 12 wunderbaren, kolorierten Kupfer (auf gefalteten Tafeln) zeigen schematisch die Erdkugel in den verschiedenen Phasen dieser Selbstzerstörung. Zwischen dem 1. und 2. Kupfer befindet sich ein kleines Wurmloch (ohne Bildverlust). Außenkanten der Tafeln teils mit Quetschfalten. Erklärungen zur den Kupfern finden sich auf dem Blatt nach dem Vorbericht. Beispiel: Tab. I: Die Erdwelt, wie sie im Anfang beschaffen gewesen, ehe der Schöpfer die 4 Haupt-Grundmaterien geschieden, und den Himmel und das Trockene mit allen seinen Wercken zubereitet, da denn diese 4 Grundmaterien nach ihrer anerschaffenene Schwehre über einander gestanden, welches aus I Mos.
