Homann in Nuremberg about the year 1702. Soon after publishing his first atlas in 1707 he became a member of the Berlin academy of Sciences and in 1715 he was appointed Geographer to the Emperor. After the founder's death in 1724, the firm was continued under the direction of his son until 1730 and was then bequeathed to his heirs on the condition that it trades under the name of Homann Heirs. The firm remained in being until the next century and had a wide influence on map publishing in Germany. Apart from the atlases the firm published a very large number of individual maps. The Homanns produced a Neuer Atlas in 1714, a Grosser Atlas in 1737, and an Atlas Maior with about 300 maps in 1780. They also issued a special Atlas of Germany with full sized plans of principal cities, school atlases and an Atlas of Silesia in 1750 with 20 maps. Condition: Good, given age.

        Rare Antique Print-MAN-BONES-SPINE-RHINOCEROS-Wandelaar-Albinus-1747

      - Antique print, untitled. This monumental anatomy plate shows the bones of the back of a male figure, standing in front of a rhinoceros. Wandelaar placed his skeletons and musclemen against lush ornamental backgrounds to give them the illusion of vitality, using contrasts of mass and light to produce a three-dimensional effect. The most famous plate in the atlas depicts a skeletal figure standing in front of an enormous grazing rhinoceros, sketched by Wandelaar from the first living specimen in Europe, which had arrived at Amsterdam zoo in 1741" (Norman). Etching/engraving on Hand laid (verge) paper. Description: This print originates from: "Tabulae sceleti et musculorum corporis humani", Leyden: 1747. Rare. Artists and Engravers: Made by 'Jan Wandelaar' after 'Bernhard Siegfried Albinus'. Jan Wandelaar (1690-1759) was a Dutch painter, engraver and etcher, born in Amsterdam. Wandelaar was a pupil of Folkema, van der Gouwen and De Lairesse. In turn he would teach Lyonet and Delfos. His anatomical engravings (for Ruysch' Opera and Albinus Tabulae) are the main base for his renown and highly esteemed. He died in Leyden. Bernhard Siegfried Albinus (born Weiss, 1697-1770) was a German-born Dutch anatomist. His father was professor of medicine in Frankfurt, but later transferred to Leyden. Albinus began his studies at age 12, under Boerhaave and Bidloo. He was then instructed by Sebastien Vaillant and Jacob Winslow in Paris, and afterwards wholly devoted himself to anatomy and botany. Condition: Very good, given age. Horizontal folding in middle. Margins cropped to or slightly over the image edge, extended and reinforced using contemporary paper backed with acid free archival tape. Where cropping removed part of the border, this was redrawn with pen and ink during restoration. Occasional light retouching of image at top and bottom with pen and ink. General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling. Please study scan carefully. Storage location: TPC-Expo-P7-24 The overall size is ca. 16.5 x 21.8 inch. The image size is ca. 15.4 x 20.7 inch. The overall size is ca. 42 x 55.4 cm. The image size is ca. 39.2 x 52.5 cm.

        A Collection of Voyages and Travels, some now first printed from original manuscripts, others now first published in English. In Six Volumes ... The Third Edition ... [Uniformly bound with:] A Collection of Voyages and Travels ... Compiled from the curious and valuable Library of the late Earl of Oxford

Title to vol.I printed in red and black, text in two columns. 284 engraved maps and plates (19 folding, 125 double-page) by Kip, Moll and others, 1 folding letterpress table, 10 engraved illustrations, 62 wood-cut illustrations. Scattered minor foxing, minor worming at front of vol. 7. Contemporary calf, expertly rebacked retaining the original morocco lettering pieces, spines with raised bands in seven compartments, ruled in gilt on either side of each bandProvenance: Henry Seymer, Hanford, Dorset (armorial bookplate)A fine set of the third and best edition of this "very valuable collection, both for its range of coverage and for the fact that it gives original accounts'' (Hill): complete with the Osborne continuation.Among the most important 18th century collections of voyages, including a number of accounts appearing here for the first time, or at least for the first time in English. The contents include seminal works on China, North and South America, Africa, Russia, Greenland, Japan, the northwest passage and more. Importantly, this set includes the first editions of the rare supplementary volumes, known as the "Harleian Voyages", compiled from Lord Oxford's library by Thomas Osborne and issued as volumes VII and VIII of the set. According to Sabin these are a "necessary accompaniment" although sets are generally found on the market in six volumes only. This combination of the third edition of Churchill's Voyages with Osborne's extension "is considered to be the best because of its greater inclusiveness and its copious index" (Hill).Sabin notes that in the first six volumes the "account of the books of voyages and travels" is brought up to date, and that "Many of the books in this collection have not appeared elsewhere in English". The better-known travellers whose works are printed here include: Baldaeus, Drake, Nieuhoff, John Smith, Columbus, Gemelli-Careri and Herrera.Cf.

        A Proper Answer to a Late Scurrilous Libel, Entitled, An Apology for the Conduct of a Late Celebrated Second-Rate Minister

      London: M. Cooper, 1747. First edition. [ii], iv, [2, blank], 5-44 pp., with half-title and A4 blank. 8vo. Modern blue wrappers. Stab holes, a few paper flaws on half-title and advertisement, and small closed tears on half-title. In a custom quarter cloth and card folder. First edition. [ii], iv, [2, blank], 5-44 pp., with half-title and A4 blank. 8vo. The last of Fielding's political tracts, a response to an anti-ministerial pamphlet - An Apology for the Conduct of a Late Celebrated Second-Rate Minister - that posed as the apology of Thomas Winnington, a prominent Whig and member of the government. "Winnington" claims that he and every memember of the Walpole government were secret Jacobites, bent on persuing policies so destructive to England's health that the Hanoverians would be booted out and the Stuarts restored to the throne. Fielding's reply, which drips with anti-Catholic venom, is derided by Battestin as essentially hack work done to order by his friends and patrons in the government. There was even the suggestion in a pamphlet response entitled The Patriot Analized (1748), that the original Apology was itself a product of Fielding's pen, an elaborate set-up which enabled him to doubly profit from his Answer. A rare complete copy, with half-title and blank A4, of an uncommon work on the market. Cross III, p. 315. Provenance: Louis & Anne Marie Davidson (bookplate)

        An address to the College of Physicians, and to the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge; occasion'd by the late swarms of Scotch and Leyden physicians, &c. who have openly assum'd the liberty (unlicens'd from the College, &c.) of practising physick in England, contrary to the privileges of our Universities, and of the Charter granted to the College of Physicians in London. To which is added, a compleat list of all the regular physicians. By an Impartial Hand.

      London: M. Cooper. 1747. 8vo., (4) + 27 + (1)pp., title-page just a bit soiled, in a fine modern binding of blind-rules maroon morocco, spine neatly lettered in gilt. A very good copy indeed with the tiny circular inkstamp of the Selbourne Library> in a couple of places. First, and only, edition and apparently really quite scarce: ESTC finds copies at only 6 libraries outside UK. Wellcome II, p.15. This is a perceptive criticism of the chaotic state of medical education and licensing of physicians in mid-18th century London. The author, perhaps himself a member of the College of Physicians, gives us an expert analysis of what he had discovered in his investigations. He thus touches on such matters as: The difficulty of attaining a doctor's degree in the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, particularly at Oxford. ..... That the laws of Holland cannot have any effect in England; consequently Leyden physicians have no right to practise here, - and are never incorporated in the College. ..... Physick brought into disrepute by the inundations of S----h and L-yd-n practitioners. ..... A proposal for suppressing all irregular practitioners ...... A complaint that irregular physicians (nay even Roman Catholicks) are elected physicians to our publick hospitals, and recommended to all the places of profit in physick .....>

In Vol. II there are chapters on fire (modeled on Boerhaave's ideas rather than Newton's), optics, and"The Physical Causes of the Celestial Motions.'s Gravesande was influential in propagating Isaac Newton's ideas in Continental Europe. "Mathematical Elements of Physics was easily the most influential book of its kind, at least before 1750. It was a larger, better-argued, and more philosophical work than most of its predecessors; moreover, it leaned heavily on [Newton's] 'Opticks' (including the queries) as well as on the 'Principia.' One should therefore distinguish between ?sGravesande?s roles as an exponent of Newtonian concepts (the rules of reasoning, the theory of gravitational attraction and its applications in celestial mechanics, theory of matter, theory of light, and so forth) and as an exponent of an empiricist methodology disdaining postulated hypotheses.

        A Compleat and Authentick History of the Rise, Progress, and Extinction of the Late Rebellion, and of the Proceedings against the Principal Persons Concerned Therein

      London: M. Cooper, 1747. First edition. [iv], 155, [1] pp., lacking folding chart. 8vo. Contemporary half calf and marbled boards, red morocco spine label ("Political Pamphlets"), sprinkled edges. Loss of leather at head of spine and rear joint, covers scuffed with loss to paper. First edition. [iv], 155, [1] pp., lacking folding chart. 8vo. Cross attributes this work to Fielding on the basis of an advertisement for The History of the Present Rebellion (1745) found in the second edition of Sarah Fielding's Cleopatra and Octavia (1758). Cross was unable to locate a copy and so attributed the present work to Fielding. The ESTC, refering to Fielding's anti-Jacobite periodical, lists the work as "Based upon the detailed account which Henry Fielding published, week by week, in The True Patriot." Battestin rejects the Fielding attribution, as does W.B. Coley in the Wesleyan Edition of The True Patriot and Related Writings (1987).

        Principes du droit naturel.

      Geneva: Barrillot & fils,, 1747. Quarto (248 x 190 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, red morocco label, raised bands, compartments tooled in gilt, red edges. Woodcut device to title. Head of spine and front joint skilfully repaired, and extremities refurbished; horizontal tears to rear free endpaper with some loss, removed bookplate to front pastedown exposing board underneath; still a very good copy. First edition of the Swiss legal and political theorist's principal work, an important influence on the American Founding Fathers. A natural law professor at the University of Geneva, Burlamaqui (1694–1748) conceived of his treatise as a general introduction to his subject intended for students, but its success and influence far exceeded his expectations. It was "translated into English, Latin, Dutch, Danish, Italian, and Spanish and republished in more than sixty different editions. The English translation became a standard textbook both at Cambridge and at the foremost American colleges" (Petter Korkman, introduction to The Principles of Natural and Political Law, 2006). Thomas Jefferson possessed a 1756 French edition of the work (Catalogue of the Library of Thomas Jefferson, 1409). "Jefferson's concept of moral sense is closest to that of Jean-Jacques Burlamaqui, one of his favourite authorities on legal studies" (Ari Helo, Thomas Jefferson's Ethics and the Politics of Human Progress: the Morality of a Slaveholder, Cambridge 2014, p. 96). In Principes du droit naturel Burlamaqui was the first modern thinker to identify the pursuit of happiness as a defining characteristic of man; hence it has been argued by Ray Forrest Harvey, the leading authority on Burlamaqui, that he was a major inspiration for Jefferson when the latter included the famous assertion of the right to "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness" in the Declaration of Independence. Aside from his influence on Jefferson in particular, Burlamaqui was more generally a major influence on the American Founding Fathers, especially through his conception of the balance of powers: "Early American thought also drew on ideas circulating on the Continent. The author who played the greatest part in transmitting those ideas over the Atlantic was the Swiss writer Jean-Jacques Burlamaqui, now almost forgotten, but at one time a best-selling author" (Ronald Hamowy, general introduction to The Encyclopaedia of Libertarianism). Principes du droit naturel was Burlamaqui's only work to be published during his lifetime. It first appeared in English the year of his death in a translation by Thomas Nugent.
