        Pl. 98 Untitled pair of ducks

      Published in London and printed by the College of Physicians in Warwick-Lane 1747 - A wonderfully detailed hand-colored ornithological engraving by George Edwards from his publication "A Natural History of Birds", which was published in London and printed by the College of Physicians in Warwick-Lane in 1747. Overall this print measures 9.5"x12". Overall this print is in good condition with some foxing/staining/creasing and tears along paper margins. It is our intention at Arader Gallery to always have the lowest price on this material. The English naturalist and ornithologist George Edwards (1694-1773), is remembered as the "Father of British Ornithology" for his dedication in the study and depiction of birds. Edwards was born in Essex, England and as a young man traveled throughout Northern Europe, collecting samples, studying natural history and making colored drawings of animals and birds. In 1743 he published the first volume of his Natural History of Uncommon Birds. His marvelous publication was a renowned reference text in mid-18th century British naturalist circles. He continued publishing subsequent volumes until 1764. His works contain engravings and descriptions from more than 600 natural history subjects which had not previously been recorded. Edwards was a good friend of Mark Catesby, who created the first American ornithology and of Sir Hans Sloane, the founder of the British Museum. Edwards produced his impressive volumes almost single-handed: making the drawings upon which the prints are based, writing the text, etching the plates and hand-coloring the pieces. Edwards was elected a Fellow and honored with the Gold Medal of the Royal Society and in 1733 he was appointed as Librarian at the Royal College of Physicians. Edwards bird prints are carefully colored and detailed with a naturalistic quality showing his great dedication to accuracy as well as desire to produce a beautiful image.

        Réflexions sur la cause générale des vents.Paris: David l'aîné, 1747.

      First edition of this important work on atmospheric tides: "Alembert's treatise on winds contained the first general use of partial differential equations in mathematical physics, a technique later perfected by Euler." (Norman 34). <br/><br/> "In 1747 d'Alembert published two more important works, one of which, the <i>Réflexions sur la cause générale des vents</i>, won a prize from the Prussian Academy. In it appeared the first general use of partial differential equations in mathematical physics. Euler later perfected the techniques of using these equations. The pattern was to become a familiar one: d'Alembert, Daniel Bernoulli, or Clairaut would pioneer a technique, and Euler would take it far beyond their capacity to develop it. D'Alembert's treatise on winds was the only one of his works honored by a prize and, ironically, was later shown to be based on insufficient assumptions. D'Alembert assumed that wind patterns were the result of tidal effects on the atmosphere, and he relegated the influence of heat to a minor role, one that caused only local variations from the general circulation. Still, as a work on atmospheric tides it was successful, and Lagrange continued to praise d'Alembert's efforts many years later.<br/><br/> The text is in both French and Latin. The work was also published the same year in Berlin, but the German edition does not include the Latin text.. 4to (225 x 165 mm), pp [8] xxviii [1] 2-194, [1-3] 4-138 and two engraved folding plates.

        The Farmer&#146;s Instructor; or, the Husbandman and Gardener&#146;s Useful and Necessary Companion. Being a New Treatise of Husbandry, Gardening, and other curious Matters relating to Country Affairs.

      London: J. Hodges 1747 - 8vo, (xvi), 275, (1) pp. Frontispiece showing the "four Wheel Drill Plow with a Seed and a Manure Hopper", some light foxing, modern bookplate. Contemporary sheep, double gilt rules, some wear, rebacked with a green label. Originally published as "A New Treatise of Husbandry." by Trowell in 1738. Renowned for his skill in growing tulips, this enlarged edition followed his death in 1746. Ellis wrote a number of agricultural works from his farm at Little Gaddesden in Hertfordshire, although may not have followed his own advice, DNB noting that "such a sentence as &#145;Be yourself the first man up in a morning for sounding at your door your harvest horn to call your men at four o'clock,&#146; contrasts amusingly with the writer's own practice, according to those who went to visit him." Henrey III 1442.

        Summa S. Thomae Hodiernis Academiarum Moribus Accomodata, Sive Cursus TheologiaeAd usum Scholarum ThomisticarumIn Nineteen Volumes.

      50 - Leodii - Apud Everardum Kints 1747 - A smart uniformly bound set of Billuart first edition theological works created to be used within Thomistic schools. Written in Latin. Featuring decorative head and tail pieces, coat of arms and illuminated capitals. Originally created byphilosopher and theologian in the tradition of scholasticism, Thomas Aquinas, his work is described as one of the classics of the history of philosophy and one of the most influential works of Western literature. It is intended as a manual for beginners in theology and a compendium of all of the main theological teachings of the Church. It presents the reasoning for almost all points of Christian theology in the West. Thomas was a theologian and a Scholastic philosopher. However, he never considered himself a philosopher, and criticised philosophers, whom he saw as pagans, for always falling short of the true and proper wisdom to be found in Christian revelation. With this in mind, Thomas did have respect for Aristotle, so much so that in the Summa, he often cites Aristotle simply as the Philosopher. Much of his work bears upon philosophical topics, and in this sense may be characterised as philosophical. Thomas's philosophical thought has exerted enormous influence on subsequent Christian theology, especially that of the Roman Catholic Church, extending to Western philosophy in general. Thomas stands as a vehicle and modifier of Aristotelianism and Neoplatonism. The Summa's topics follow a cycle: the existence of God; Creation, Man; Man's purpose; Christ; the Sacraments; and back to God. The Summa Theologica is meant to summarise the history of the cosmos and provide an outline for the meaning of life itself. Throughout the work, Aquinas cites not only Aristotle but Sacred Scripture, Augustine of Hippo, and other Jewish, Greek, Roman, Christian, and Muslim scholars. The Summa Theologi is a more structured and expanded version of Aquinas's earlier Summa contra Gentiles, each written for different purposes: the Summa Theologi to explain the Christian faith to theology students, and the Summa contra Gentiles to explain it and defend it in hostile situations. Complete in nineteen volumes. Condition: In the originalmottled calf bindings with marbled text block edge, and gilt design and lettering to the spines. Externally, all are sound with only light wear to the extremities and head of the spines. Volume one has slightwear encroachingonto the front board. Internally, all are generally firmly bound with volume's seventeen and ninebeing slightlystrained in places.

        1747 Emanuel Bowen Map of North American Harbors

      London 1747 - Map. "Particular Draughts and Plans of Some of the Principal Towns and Harbours belonging to the English, French, and Spaniards; in America and West Indies. Collected from the best Authorities. By Eman. Bowen." London, 1747. 17 x 14 in. There are 13 maps on one sheet, the maps are of the harbors of; "Boston," "Placentia" (Eastern Coast of Canada), "Louis Bourg," "Annapolis Royal" (Canada), "New York and Perthamboy," "S'Augustine," "Providence," "Havana," "St. Jago de Cuba," "Charles Town," "Fort Royal in Martinico" (West Indies), "Cartegena," "Porto Bello." Historical BackgroundEmanuel Bowen (1693/4-1767) was a map maker and engraver in London. Bowen's career (1720-1767) was a prominent component of London's position as a leading producer of maps and atlases during the 18th century. He served as royal map maker both for George II of England and Louis XV of France. Bowen is known for many famed maps and atlases, including; The Royal English Atlas, the Large English Atlas which he produced in partnership with mapmaker Thomas Kitchen, and his earliest publication, the Britannia Depicta, produced in partnership with mapmaker John Owen (nicknamed the Owen and Bowen Maps). Bowen's maps were different from the rest of the maps created during his time, and were very popular. What set his maps apart from the others were the facts that they were created with some of the most sophisticated cartographical detail of the time, included historical and cultural information, were very artistically designed, and were some of the largest maps printed during the time. Bowen also created several geographical textbooks, including; The Complete System of Geography, and The Universal History of the World.The map featured here, the "Particular Draughts and Plans of Some of the Principal Towns and Harbours belonging to the English, French, and Spaniards; in America and West Indies. Collected from the best Authorities" shows detailed maps of the Harbors and Towns. The details include depth measurements of the waterways, labels and illustrations of towns and forts, illustrations of surrounding landscape, and interesting facts about the harbors. Such facts include a list of the number of Canons set up in different forts to defend the Louisbourg harbor entrance, and the historical fact, "Porto Bello,.taken by Admiral Vernon on Nov.r 22.d 1739 with 6 ships only." Another aspect of the map to note is that the lands of the harbors are documented before the landfills that occurred in many of them that altered the present day maps of the areas.References BOWEN Emanuel Bowen (1714-1767) Bowen Bowen

        19 autograph letters signed.

      Vienna, St. Pölten, and other places, 1738-1747. - Altogether 37 pages on 38 leaves. Large 4to, with additional material (see below). To the Abbott of the Premonstratensians in Hradisko near Olomouc (Moravia). These unpublished letters, hitherto unknown to scholarship, represent a substantial part of Gran's correspondence with the Hradisch Abbey. They offer a detailed and intimate perspective on the creative process of this famed artist, who, together with Paul Troger and Franz Anton Maulbertsch, is regarded as one of the best-known painters of the later Austrian Baroque period. The letters are valuable sources for the dating of Gran's works at the Hradisko Monastery itself (frescoes and oil paintings); they also provide ample information about the circumstances of their composition. Lost works such as a cycle of paintings from 1747 are also mentioned. Finally, the letters offer a unique perspective on Gran's everyday life, including the illnesses from which he suffered and collaborations with fellow artists. The recipient, although never explicitly named, is Abbott Norbert II. Also enclosed is an additional letter to the Abbott from the painter Christian Hilfgott Brandt (1693-1756), dated and signed Vienna, 25 March 1754. - Margins with occasional tears and light creases, still an extremely well-preserved collection of correspondence. Manuscript material by Gran is extremely rare. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
