        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.

"The Vénus Physique of 1745 was an enlarged and more fully analyzed argument against the then-dominant biological theory of the preformation of the embryo. Maupertuis argued convincingly that the embryo could not be preformed, either in the egg or in the animalcule (spermatozoon), since hereditary characteristics could be passed down equally through the male or the female parent" (D.S.B.).

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.

        Planiglobii Terrestris Mappemonde

      Nuremberg 1746 - Homann Heirs; Planiglobii Terrestris Mappemonde; Nuremberg: 1746; Hand-colored copperplate engraving; 27 ½" x 31" framed Born in Kammlach in 1663, John Baptista Homann (1663-1724) was the founder of a family firm that became a virtual cartographic dynasty, dominating the German and international map market for a century. Homann founded his firm in 1702, and produced his first atlas in 1704. His legacy extended beyond his years, however, as his atlases continued to be published for thirty years following his death, and his descendants, under the name “Homann Heirs,”" continued to produce maps and atlases long after that. Along with Matthias Seutter, Homann was largely responsible for the German resurgence in the field of cartography, which had so long been dominated by Dutch firms centered in Amsterdam. Homann made his way not merely as an engraver and mapseller, but also served as the geographer to the Kaiser of the Holy Roman Empire beginning in 1715. He received commissions as an engraver from David Funck, and also lent his skill to such notables as Jacob von Sandrart and Heinrich Scherer for their publications. For his strides in cartography, Homann was eventually honored with membership in the Prussian Royal Academy of Science. This is an important map by one of the most significant eighteenth-century German mapmakers.

        Institutions Astronomiques ou Leçons Elémentaires d'Astronomie

      Hippolyte-Louis Guérin & Jacques Guérin 1746 - On attribue à Lemonnier la traduction du latin de Keill, mais cette édition française est si largement augmentée et tant différente de celle d'outre-Manche qu'on la considère comme originale. L'ouvrage est très complet sur son sujet, l'astronomie, et son format en épais in-quarto autorise la mise en page claire de tableaux complexes et la possibilité d'une illustration sur grandes planches dépliantes qui donnent à voir nombre de détails grâce à la finesse de la gravure. Les cartes du ciel, les surfaces lunaires sont particulièrement belles et illustrent l'avancée spectaculaire des observations astronomiques en cette première moitié du XVIIIe siècle. Ainsi, on y voit près du pôle la constellation du Renne, que Lemonnier avait formée au retour de son expédition d'observation en Suède. Après une première partie consacrée à l'histoire de l'astronomie, Lemonnier entre dans le vif des débats passionnés sur cette science en bouleversement. N'ayant lui-même aucune confiance dans les grands gnomons, il monta lui même en 1744 une lunette d'observation sur l'église de Saint-Sulpice avec une lentille de 80 pieds de foyer. Cet objectif de trois pouces de diamètre fut parfaitement centré, ce qui fait que tous les rayons qu'il recevait étaient réunis avec une grande exactitude sur un marbre que l'on découvrait au moment de l'observation. Ainsi, il put observer une inégalité dans le moyen mouvement de Saturne, et pense que cette inégalité dépend de Jupiter. Au chapitre VIII, il donne une explication de l'aberration d'après Bradley. Dans les chapitres IX et X, il a inséré des copies des cartes de la Lune d'Hévélius et de Riccioli, et une troisième carte tirée des Mémoires de l'Académie. Une autre contribution importante de Lemonnier est la publication des tables du soleil et de la lune (un travail inédit de Flamsteed). Plus loin, il corrige avec bonheur Newton et diminue de 28" la parallaxe moyenne de Newton, la réduisant à 57' 2''. Au chapitre XIV sur les éclipses, on trouve un mémoire inédit de Picard (1677). C'est une manière de déterminer le nœud et l'inclinaison de Mercure, d'après un passage sur le disque du Soleil, dans lequel on aurait observé la rentrée et la sortie. On peut ainsi déterminer toutes les circonstances d'un passage qu'on voudrait annoncer. À l'article des satellites, on découvre encore quelques détails ajoutés sur le mouvement de la lumière. On trouve ensuite une table des mouvements moyens du satellite de Huygens, et des tables du premier satellite de Jupiter, d'après Pound. A la fin du chapitre, Lemonnier recommande l'idée de Halley, qui était d'observer la lune pendant une période entière de 18 ans, afin de corriger les erreurs et prédire les phénomènes. Au chapitre des comètes, Lemonnier ajoute quelques pages sur la comète de 1744. Il donne une idée de sa manière indirecte pour déterminer l'orbite, et renvoie à la traduction qu'il avait donnée du livre de Halley. Le chapitre finit par une carte sur laquelle sont dessinées toutes les orbites connues.

        Idea de una Nueva Historia General de la Am?rica Septentrional. Fundada sobre material copioso de figuras, Symbols, Caracteres, Geroglifcos, Cantares, y Manuscritos de Autores Indios, ultimamente descubiertos

      Madrid: En la Imprenta de Juan de Zuniga, 1746 [xxxvi]+167+[viii]+96 pages. Octavo (8 1/4" x 6 1/4") bound in full leather with decorative gilt and lettering to spine. From the library of George M Foster. 1st edition.Lorenzo Boturini Benaducci, born in Italy of noble parentage, studied in Milan and lived in Trieste and Vienna. He was a knight of the Holy Roman Empire. Forced to flee Austria because of the war with Spain, Boturini arrived in Spain via England and Portugal. In Madrid he met the Condesa de Santibáñez, oldest daughter of the Condesa de Moctezuma. The mother authorized him to collect a pension due her, as a descendant of the Aztec Emperor Moctezuma II, from the royal treasury in New Spain. Boturini went to New Spain in 1736, where he remained eight years. During those years he assembled a vast collection of paintings, maps, manuscripts and native codices. He copied more than 500 pre-Columbian inscriptions and made his own drawings of monuments and sculptures, and he investigated the history of the apparition of the Virgin of Guadalupe on the hill of Tepeyac. He traveled widely and on his travels brought together the largest collection of Mexican antiquities assembled to that time by a European. Not only did he intend to write the history of the Virgin of Guadalupe, but he also had plans to crown her image with a gold crown. For that purpose he sought donations from the bishops and from the public. This brought him to the attention of the colonial government, which was suspicious of the motives of a foreigner making this proposal. On June 2, 1743 after an investigation, the recently arrived viceroy, Pedro Cebrián y Agustín, had him imprisoned and impounded his collection. He was accused of entering New Spain without license from the Council of the Indies and of introducing papal documents without a royal permit. After eight months in prison, Boturini was sent to Spain. He fell into the hands of pirates, who eventually released him at Gibraltar. From there he traveled to Madrid, in miserable conditions. In Madrid he met Mariano Fernández de Echeverría y Veytia, another passionate collector of Indian antiquities. Fernández de Echeverría y Veytia offered Boturini a place to live and financial support, and got the Council of the Indies to reconsider his case. Boturini was absolved. The king named him royal chronicler of the Indies, ordered that his collection be returned to him, and extended an invitation for him to return to New Spain. Boturini, however, declined to return to New Spain, and his collection was never restored. It appears that he was granted recompense and a stipend to work on his projected history of the colony. In Madrid he wrote a history of ancient Mexico, unpublished at the time of his death in 1753. The library at the Basílica de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe is named for him. The Boturini Collection was formed between 1735 and 1743, to serve as the basis of a projected Historia de América Septentrional. It consisted of many valuable documents, the majority of them of Indian provenance. Among these were hieroglyphic paintings that had belonged to Juan de Alva Ixtlilxochitl, a descendant of the rulers of Texcoco. Ixtlilxotchitl bequeathed these documents to Carlos de Sigüenza y Góngora. The collection was confiscated by Viceroy Pedro Cebrián y Agustín at the time of Boturini's arrest in 1743. It was deposited in the office of the secretary of the viceroyalty. The documents were neglected there for years and suffered considerable pilferage. The subsequent viceroy, Juan Francisco de Güemes, 1st Count of Revillagigedo, granted the historian and antiquary Fernández de Echeverría y Veytia (Boturini's friend from Madrid) the paintings and documents he solicited for his own studies. On Fernández de Echeverría y Veytia's death, they passed to Antonio de León y Gama. He died in 1802, and the collection passed to his heirs. Shortly thereafter, 16 paintings were obtained by Alexander von Humboldt during his visit to Mexico in 1802-03. He published them in Vues des cordillères et monuments des peuples indigènes d'Amérique. The originals of these are now in the Berlin State Library. Part of the remainder of the collection may have passed to Father José Pichardo, an amateur antiquarian. Joseph Alexis Aubin, beginning in 1827 or shortly thereafter, obtained important parts of the collection from a variety of sources. He sold his collection to Eugène Goupil, who was of French and Mexican descent. This part of the collection passed by donation or purchase to the National Library in Paris, where it remains, under the name Aubin-Goupil Collection.George McClelland Foster, Jr born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on October 9, 1913, died on May 18, 2006, at his home in the hills above the campus of the University of California, Berkeley, where he served as a professor from 1953 to his retirement in 1979, when he became professor emeritus. His contributions to anthropological theory and practice still challenge us; in more than 300 publications, his writings encompass a wide diversity of topics, including acculturation, long-term fieldwork, peasant economies, pottery making, public health, social structure, symbolic systems, technological change, theories of illness and wellness, humoral medicine in Latin America, and worldview. The quantity, quality, and long-term value of his scholarly work led to his election to the National Academy of Sciences in 1976. Virtually all of his major publications have been reprinted and/or translated. Provenance from the executor of Foster's library laid in.Condition:Lacks Foster's stamp or date of purchase. some damp stains to end papers, neat old marginalia in Spanish to back end paper, worm hole ant head and heal of spine going through spine, extremities bumped and rubbed, old owner's label to front paste down, 1" chip at back head hinge, and name to front end paper, scuffed else a good copy of a rare item.

        Philosophia Magni Aurelia Augustini ab Aegidio Columna Romano interpretata a Patre Nicolao Gavardi in Romana sapienta Magistro dilucidata . praelecta vero a Fratre Feliciano Ullmann Eremita Augustiniano.

      Bohemia 1746 - manuscript in ink on paper in a neat cursive hand, with five diagrams in the text, ff. 270, 4to, contemporary mottled calf, spine richly gilt, red edges, a little worn but still very good Written by Felicianus Ullmann, a monk in the order of Augustinian Hermits, this manuscript is an adaptation of Nicolo Gavardi’s course of philosopy based on the writings of Aegidius of Colonna (c.1245-1316), ‘Doctor fundatissimus’. A pupil of Thomas Aquinas, he became Prior General of the Augustinian Order, whose monks were required to study his writings. In the seventeenth century Nicolo Gavardi (1640-1715) wrote a course of philosophy, including the basics of astronomy and physics, based on the work of Aegidius, and this was used, as exemplified here, by the Augustinian Hermits. This copy is dedicated to the Bohemian nobleman Vinzenz Ferrerius von Waldstein-Wartenberg. Three of the diagrams illustrate the planetary systems of Ptolemy, Tycho, and Copernicus, and another is a Porphyrian Tree. The text is prefaced by a history of the Waldstein family.
