Contemporary panelled calf, neatly rebacked and repaired, front and rear free endpapers renewed. The Rare First, Taverner's Copy Westwood & Satchell note that although only Richard Bowlker's name appears in the First edition, in the second, his son Charles seems to lay claim to the work. At his death in 1779, Charles "was considered the most finished fly-fisher of his day". The work went into many editions: this, the first, is a rare book indeed.This particular copy has a distinguished provenance. The rear pastedown bears an interesting ownership inscription, dated 1758, of John Rogers, from the borough of Stone in Shropshire; and the front pastedown bears the following inscription, linking this rare incunable of fly fishing to two modern masters: "JOHN WALLER HILLS TO ERIC TAVERNER".For Hills, see pp. 130-6 of Robb's Notable Angling Literature; Taverner is author of Trout Fishing from All Angles and Salmon Fishing (both titles in the Lonsdale Library), The Making of a Trout Stream, etc., etc.

        La philosophie du bon sens

      New edition, reprint of the increased volume of the second edition 1740. It is illustrated with a portrait and a curious allegorical figure in the first volume, as well as a large thumbnail title to the Epistle .. Pages titles in red and black. Full mottled calf iced period. Part of title and volume number in red morocco. 3 corners bumped. Slight crack in the upper joint of Volume II. Despite the shortcomings announced, fine copy, in a very handsome appearance. Implementation of a free thinker of the Enlightenment, the philosophy of common sense is an examination of prejudice and all branches of knowledge in the light of the assumption of skepticism; the author of this assumption uncertainty is beneficial as to the truth of things; the book was considered dangerous enough to be banned by the Parliament and thus Argens wrote most of his books in Holland, in the shelter of an arrest. Although praised by Voltaire, the work was condemned by Kant. Chez Pierre Paupie A La Haye 1747 2 tomes en 2 Vol. in 12 (9,5x17cm) (2) XII 480pp. et VIII 468pp. relié

        Erzählung sonderbarer Rechtshändel, sammt deren gerichtlichen Entscheidung. Aus dem französischen übersetzt. (ab Band 5: Causes celebres oder Erzählung sonderbarer Gerichtshändel...). 9 Bände (alles Erschienene). Titel in Rot und Schwarz. Dekorative Halblederbde d. Z. (leicht berieben, 1 Gelenkeinriss, 1 kleine Kapitalfehlstelle) mit Rückenschild und reicher Rückenvergoldung.

      Leipzig, Gottfried Kiesewetter und (Bd 9) Heinsius, 1747-1767.. . Sehr seltene erste deutsche Ausgabe der berühmten Sammlung von Kriminalfällen durch den Pariser Juristen (1673-1743), die sprichwörtlich wurde und kaum - wie hier - vollständig vorkommt. Die erste französische Ausgabe erschien ab 1734 und erfuhr zahlreiche Fortsetzungen durch andere Autoren. Pitaval behandelt die bekanntesten Strafrechtsfälle seiner Zeit auf der Grundlage der jeweiligen Prozessakten und gilt daher als Begründer der Gerichtsberichterstattung. Derartige Fallsammlungen dienten zunächst sowohl als juristische Fachlektüre als auch als allgemeine Publikumslektüre. Später zielten sie vor allem auf den Publikumsgeschmack ab. Die Blütezeit dieser Literaturform war das 19. und der Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts. In dieser Zeit gehörten sogenannte "Pitavalgeschichten" in jede Bibliothek. In der Folgezeit gab es zahlreiche Nachahmer und Folgeeditionen, so z. B. Paul Johann Anselm von Feuerbachs 'Merkwürdige Rechtsfälle' 1808/11, 'Der neue Pitaval' von Julius Eduard Hitzig und Willibald Alexis (1842-1890), Egon Erwin Kischs 'Prager Pitaval' (1931), Herrmann Mostars und Robert Adolf Stemmles 'Der neue Pitaval' (1963 ff.) u. a. m. Bekannt ist auch die von Friedrich Schiller herausgegebene vierbändige Auswahl der von Pitaval zusammengestellten Fälle. Das Fernsehen der DDR lehnte sich mit den von Friedrich Karl Kaul entwickelten Fernsehpitavalen an die Tradition dieses Genres an. Die vorliegende Sammlung enthält den Fall des falschen Martin Guerre, der Giftmischerin Brinvilliers, des "Hexenmeisters" Urban Grandier, der Magdalena Jollivet, der Ehebrecherin Marie Perreau, der Frau Tiquet, der Frau von Beaumont, die pflichtverletzenden Richter, des Carl Franz Harrouards, des Abts Mauroy, Geschichte des Rechtsstreits zwischen Rousseau und Saurin, des als Zauberer verbrannten Ludwig Gaufridy, der als Zwitter angeklagten Nonne, des Fräuleins von Choiseul, Streit zwischen einem Herrn und einer Privatperson, das von zwei Müttern beanspruchte Kind, der abgeschaffte Congress, der wegen seiner Kleinwüchsigkeit nicht angenommene Domherr, Streit der Herren von Cinq Mars und von Thou, Urteil des Herzogs von Ossuna und Philipp V., die aus dem Grab geholte Frau, der Herzog von Guise und seine heimliche Ehe, Geschichte des Fräuleins von Sfrondate, die Ermordung des Herrn von Riancourt u.v.a. - Schönes frisches Exemplar.

        Copper Medal in commemoration of his 1740-1744 Circumnavigation and 1747 defeat of the French at Cap Finisterre

      London: Thomas Pingo, 1747. Copper medal, 43.3 mm., with Anson crowned by Victory at right, on the reverse Victory on hippocamp, the names of Anson's officers around; CAMPHEL issue with 'B' faintly visible on 'H', about uncirculated, a few minor blemishes to the rims. Circumnavigation and victory. An excellent medal, commemorating Anson's circumnavigation and his 1747 victory at Cap Finisterre off the coast of Spain. The huge prize-money brought back after the capture of the Manila treasure galleon, followed by the magnificent defeat of the French navy, were achievements which spoke enormously to popular feeling.George Anson was one of the most successful British naval commanders of the eighteenth-century, famous for his notoriously difficult circumnavigation of the globe from 1740-1744 as commander of the Centurion. In 1739 he had been given command of a Pacific squadron to raid Spanish possessions, a period at sea which saw him lose five of his six ships and literally most of his crew, but also return with a staggering £400,000 in bounty after his capture of the Manila treasure galleon. 'After the fleet's failure off Toulon in February the navy stood in need of a popular triumph, and the capture of a treasure galleon was in the public mind the next best thing to a fleet victory. Day after day the newspapers carried reports of the homecoming: the procession from Portsmouth to London, with thirty-two wagons laden with treasure; the feting of Anson and his men; details of the prize money and the dispute over its allocation...' (Williams, p. 229). Anson went on to a long career and, as this medal also commemorates, was instrumental in the French defeat at Finisterre off the Spanish coast on 3 May 1747, where his thirteen ships of the line defeated the French admiral De la Jonquiere's smaller fleet in just three hours with most of the French men-of-war taken.This medal, to commemorate Anson's great successes, was commissioned from Thomas Pingo (1692-1776), then assistant engraver at the Royal Mint. On the obverse is a bust of the admiral crowned with a laurel by Victory and the caption 'Vict. Mai III MDCCXLVII'. The reverse bears the legend 'Circumnavigation' and the names of other officers on the famous journey, themselves famous names in the British navy: Keppel, Saumarez, Saunders, Brett, Dennis, and Campbel.When the medal was originally issued the name of the junior officer Campbel was mis-engraved "Camphel". The present medal is an example of the interim state of the medal, with the 'H' altered to a 'B', but not completely effaced. Eimer suggests that the medal was commissioned by Thomas Anson, George's brother and himself a collector of medals. In this light, it has plausibly been argued that the long-accepted date of production of 1747 is in fact far too early, and that it was not until 1768, six years after Anson's death, that this medal was commissioned and struck.

        [MONTPELLIER UNIVERSITY AND BOTANICAL GARDEN STUDENT MANUSCRIPT]

      Montpellier, [1747-1749]. Full Vellum. Very Good. 8vo(18.5 x 13.5 cm). Later limp vellum with vellum covered ties one of which is broken midway through text leaves and absent at back; Some staining on covers. Collation: [60]pp. Text are original student notes in Latin (mostly) and some pp. in French. The latter is for notes on vegetation from MACQUER, Pierre Joseph’s Elemens de Chymie Theorique pratique des v?g?taux, 1749. These notes on pp. [58-59] refer to sections in the first five chapters of Marquer’s book. The first four pages of the manuscript contain notes on medicine with dates of 1747 and 1749. The main body of the manuscript lists plants in the Botanical Garden divided into five major sections: Liliaceae (8pp.); Papilionaceae (13pp.); Umbelliferae (8pp); Caryophyllaceae (15pp.) Infundibuliformea (?) (7pp). There are two blank leaves before the last leaf with text on verso. This page, also in French is on geometry with one drawn image for illustrating a circle with internal triangle connected to external point by two lines. This page concerns derivation a proof for a proposition relating the surface of a sphere to a rectangle and diameter. The catalogue is probably made by a student of medicine as it is preceded by a text on respiration and by notes on a dissection of a woman, a lesson probably attended at the 'Académie de médicine' in Montpellier, dated 1747 and 1749. This was a significant period for the Jardin des Plantes in Montpellier as the garden was undergoing a major restoration by François Boissier between 1740-1758.  The Botanic Garden in Montpellier, Jardin des Plantes, is one of the University’s treasures. The common history of University and Garden has linked them for over four centuries and also points to their common purpose, the safeguarding of all living things: the human being through medicine, the world of plants through the natural medical history. It is France's oldest botanical garden, inspired by the Orto botanico di Padova (1545) and in turn serving as model for the Jardin des Plantes de Paris (1626). In the Middle Ages Montpellier was a rich city due to its position between the sea and the mountains on one of the important trade routes. The speciadors sovereigns based their fortunes on the booming trade with the East. There were many doctors and pharmacists and the art of healing developed in the 12th century and in particular with the use of medicinal plants. A medical school was founded in 1220 for the specific purpose of training medical doctors, and it remains the oldest school to this day in the Western world. The Renaissance produced one of the foremost medical doctors and most learned naturalist, Guillaume Rondelet. In 1550 the Arrêt des Grands Jours de Béziers (Act of Parliament) put him in charge of the first structured botanic studies programme in France and entrusted him with the collection of plants in natura. The first garden, a hortulus, was established on his instructions at the Old School in the Cannau district. Montpellier became the capital of botanical sciences in the 16th and 17th centuries. Pierre Magnol befriended by John Ray was one of the great botanists of his age and revolutionized botanical science in his search for a natural classification system. The concept of “family” was developed by Michel Adanson, a student from Paris, and led directly to the numerical classifications of the 20th century. François Boissier was the Intendant of the garden from 1740 to 1758, replacing the royal intendant. He organised the second major restoration after Magnol and showed himself to be a gifted ‘gardener’. Several naturalists perfected their training and knowledge in Montpellier in the 18th century while the royal garden in Paris became increasingly prominent. Several famous botanists who worked at the botanical garden in Montpellier included Joseph Pitton de Tournefort, Phillibert Commerson and Bernard de Jussieu. (Wikipedia; Coimbra Group) The garden at Montpellier was modeled on existing Italian botanical gardens built near medical schools (as at Pisa and Padua) and has often been described as a replica of them. The program of education was comparably academic and similarly a product of the commercial culture around the Mediterranean that brought imported species of plants and books about medicine into circulation. Pedagogy in medical botany at Montpellier centered on plant demonstrations too… The use of live plants in these early medical gardens was designed to improve on the empirically limiting practice of using only dried herbs for pharmacology.

Eine der schönsten Ausgabe einer Malerschule die wir je gesehen haben. Johann Daniel Preissler (1666, Nuremberg ?- 1737) was a notable member of a German artistic family, originating in Bohemia. His children included Johan Martin Preisler, Georg Martin Preisler and Johann Justin Preissler, all artists. Most notable for his portraits, nudes and history paintings, he also produced drawings and frescoes. He was also known beyond Nuremberg for his "Die durch Theorie erfundene Practic" (full title: "Die durch Theorie erfundene Practic oder Gründlich verfasste Reguln deren man sich als einer Anleitung zu berühmter Künstlere Zeichen-Wercke bestens bedienen kann"), a sequence of works on art-theory ?- the individual works were translated into several other languages and served as textbooks for students such as the Swiss Salomon Gessner right up until the 19th century. By the time of his death in 1737, Johann Caspar Füssli spoke of Preissler and Jan Kupecky as the two most famous Nuremberg artists of the early 18th century. He received his first artistic training in his home town under his father, the history painter and portraitist Daniel Preissler (1627?-1665), continuing his education in the studio of Johann Murrer. From 1688 to 1696 he stayed in Italy, including periods in Rome and Venice. In 1705 he became the director of Nuremberg's Academy of Fine Arts, which under his leadership turned into a city institution. In 1716 he founded the Zeichenschule (drawing school), open to "poor people's children" ?- it proved a great success. With 71 students entering in the first year, its intake was so large that in 1721 Preissler began producing the teaching materials which later became his "Die durch Theorie erfundene Practic" ?- he had previously only published academic works, such as ones on anatomy. Preissler also wrote on the academically neglected topics such as ornament and flower-drawing (in 1725) and landscape drawing (1739), though throughout his writing he insisted that these were only beginners' lessons.

        [MONTPELLIER UNIVERSITY AND BOTANICAL GARDEN STUDENT MANUSCRIPT]

      Montpellier, [1747-1749]. Full Vellum. Very Good. 8vo(18.5 x 13.5 cm). Later limp vellum with vellum covered ties one of which is broken midway through text leaves and absent at back; Some staining on covers. Collation: [60]pp. Text are original student notes in Latin (mostly) and some pp. in French. The latter is for notes on vegetation from MACQUER, Pierre Joseph?'s Elemens de Chymie Theorique pratique des végétaux, 1749. These notes on pp. [58-59] refer to sections in the first five chapters of Marquer?'s book. The first four pages of the manuscript contain notes on medicine with dates of 1747 and 1749. The main body of the manuscript lists plants in the Botanical Garden divided into five major sections: Liliaceae (8pp.); Papilionaceae (13pp.); Umbelliferae (8pp); Caryophyllaceae (15pp.) Infundibuliformea (?) (7pp). There are two blank leaves before the last leaf with text on verso. This page, also in French is on geometry with one drawn image for illustrating a circle with internal triangle connected to external point by two lines. This page concerns derivation a proof for a proposition relating the surface of a sphere to a rectangle and diameter. The catalogue is probably made by a student of medicine as it is preceded by a text on respiration and by notes on a dissection of a woman, a lesson probably attended at the 'Académie de médicine' in Montpellier, dated 1747 and 1749. This was a significant period for the Jardin des Plantes in Montpellier as the garden was undergoing a major restoration by François Boissier between 1740-1758. The Botanic Garden in Montpellier, Jardin des Plantes, is one of the University?'s treasures. The common history of University and Garden has linked them for over four centuries and also points to their common purpose, the safeguarding of all living things: the human being through medicine, the world of plants through the natural medical history. It is France's oldest botanical garden, inspired by the Orto botanico di Padova (1545) and in turn serving as model for the Jardin des Plantes de Paris (1626). In the Middle Ages Montpellier was a rich city due to its position between the sea and the mountains on one of the important trade routes. The speciadors sovereigns based their fortunes on the booming trade with the East. There were many doctors and pharmacists and the art of healing developed in the 12th century and in particular with the use of medicinal plants. A medical school was founded in 1220 for the specific purpose of training medical doctors, and it remains the oldest school to this day in the Western world. The Renaissance produced one of the foremost medical doctors and most learned naturalist, Guillaume Rondelet. In 1550 the Arrêt des Grands Jours de Béziers (Act of Parliament) put him in charge of the first structured botanic studies programme in France and entrusted him with the collection of plants in natura. The first garden, a hortulus, was established on his instructions at the Old School in the Cannau district. Montpellier became the capital of botanical sciences in the 16th and 17th centuries. Pierre Magnol befriended by John Ray was one of the great botanists of his age and revolutionized botanical science in his search for a natural classification system. The concept of ?"family?" was developed by Michel Adanson, a student from Paris, and led directly to the numerical classifications of the 20th century. François Boissier was the Intendant of the garden from 1740 to 1758, replacing the royal intendant. He organised the second major restoration after Magnol and showed himself to be a gifted ?'gardener?'. Several naturalists perfected their training and knowledge in Montpellier in the 18th century while the royal garden in Paris became increasingly prominent. Several famous botanists who worked at the botanical garden in Montpellier included Joseph Pitton de Tournefort, Phillibert Commerson and Bernard de Jussieu. (Wikipedia; Coimbra Group) The garden at Montpellier was modeled on existing Italian botanical gardens built near medical schools (as at Pisa and Padua) and has often been described as a replica of them. The program of education was comparably academic and similarly a product of the commercial culture around the Mediterranean that brought imported species of plants and books about medicine into circulation. Pedagogy in medical botany at Montpellier centered on plant demonstrations too… The use of live plants in these early medical gardens was designed to improve on the empirically limiting practice of using only dried herbs for pharmacology.

        Umständliche und zuverlässige Nachricht von den letzten Tagen und Stunden Eines um seines Verbrechens willen in Verfertigung und Ausgebung Falscher Münze Nach weltlichen Rechten von Hochlöbl. Obrigkeit zum Schwerdt verurtheilten, und zu Augspurg 1747., den 13.

      Augsburg, Lotter (1747).. 4 Bll., 175 S. HLdr. d. Zt. 4°.. Über KVK nur ein Exemplar in der Wüttembergischen Landesbibliothek lokalisierbar. - Nicht bei Huelke-E., für mich nicht weiter bibliographisch nachweisbar. - Interessante Quelle zur Migartion aus Savoyen ("Schweden") nach Süddeutschland. "Es ist vielleicht kein Zufall, dass die einzigen Todesurteile gegen welsche Falschmünzer in Augsburg, die bislang ermittelt werden konnten, Personen erleiden mussten, die in keinem erkennbaren Zusammenhang mit der Stadtbevölkerung standen. Es traf den Johann Sassovie und seine Frau, die nach gründlichem und peinlichem Verhör 1747 in Augsburg hingerichtet wurden". ( M. Zürn, Savoyer vor städtischen Gerichten in der Neuzeit). - Berieben, Rücken am Kopf mit Fehlstelle. Teilweise gebräunt und fingerfleckig.

        Le Cuisinier Gascon. Nouvelle Edition, A laquelle on a joint la Lettre du Patissier Anglois

      Amsterdam (Paris) 1747 - Contemporary acid calf, respined. Light wear at the corners, scattered light foxing and toning internally, endpapers browned - a clean, bright copy overall. With an armorial bookplate on the front pastedown and the bookplate of food bibliographer Eleanor Lowenstein on the front free endpaper. The second edition, the first with the Lettre du Patissier Anglois. viii, 244. Oberle 112, Simon 421, Cagle 1082, Vicaire 234The most singular of all French cookbooks, the organization is haphazard, but the dishes and names so charming and so likably indicative of the debauched phase of French royal cookery (and society) that all is forgiven. Frogs in green sauce, green monkey sauce, eggs without malice, veal cooked to resemble donkey droppings, chicken in the shape of bats, ducks roasted and pressed for a bit of juice to dress a chicken and the carcasses discarded. Simultaneously mocking and exemplifying the unfettered fabulousness of 18th century royal cuisine, Le Cuisinier Gascon marks the end of the revolution in food that began with La Varenne, and the start of a revolution of another sort. Size: 8vo (octavo). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo. Category: Cooking, Wine & Dining; Inventory No: CAT000093. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
