        Copper Medal in commemoration of his 1740-1744 Circumnavigation

      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; corrected CAMPBEL variety, remnants of 'H' faintly visible, about uncirculated, some mint color remaining, slight abrasions on the obverse. An excellent copper medal, commemorating Lord Anson's circumnavigation of the Globe and his 1747 defeat of the French at Cap Finisterre off the coast off Spain.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 Anson's 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 was struck for both of Anson's great achievements, and 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 issue known as the corrected "Campbel" variety, with only remnants of the mis-engraved 'H'. 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.Betts, American Colonial History Illustrated by Contemporary Medals, 382; Eimer, British Commemorative Medals, 38; Hawkins and Grueber, Medallic Illustrations of British History, 325.

        The Honest Elector; or, unerring reasons for the prevention of chusing corrupt Members to serve in Parliament: with instructions for the choice of a Speaker. Written by those two ever memorable patriots Anthony Hammond and Walter Moyle, both Members of Parliament. Also A particular address to the citizens of of [sic] London, concerning the rights and laws of Parliament. And the Earl of Mulgrave’s reasons against chusing Crown Parliaments.

      Printed for W. Owen 1747 - pp. 59, [1, ads], 8vo disbound, good The first item is a reprint of Hammond’s Considerations upon Corrupt Elections of Members to serve in Parliament, 1701, the others appear to be printed here for the first time. ‘Following the electoral campaign of the New East India Company, which was accused of corruption when the session began, he wrote Considerations upon Corrupt Elections of Members to Serve in Parliament (1701). Up to this point his political stance was that of a country politician, and his country credentials were recognized when he was appointed as a commissioner for stating the public accounts in June 1701. Although his lifelong friendship with the republican Walter Moyle, contracted in 1690, suggests that he was not unsympathetic to country whig views, he was himself a country tory, and was ‘known for his noisy tory eloquence’ (Reliquiae, 2.290)’ (ODNB).

        Istoria dell'antichissimo oratorio o cappella di San Lorenzo nel patriarchio lateranense comunemente appellato Sancta Sancotrum e della celebre immagine di SS Salvatore detta Acheropita che ivi conservasi

      Roma: Ottavio Puccinelli, 1747 xxii + 353 pp, 3 folding plates. Illustrated with engraved initials, a number of text engravings, as well as a large plate at page 1 and headers and footers. Red and black title page. With a handwritten letter in Italian dated February 10, 1753, that appears to be an obituary of Marangoni. In Italian. In what appears to be the original vellum binding with title in gold on a yellow background at the spine. Binding is sturdy, vellum is normally aged, long stain on spine below the title, bottom edge of front and to a lesser extent the back covers are eroded and stained -- it appears the book came in contact with a corrosive liquid that darkened and then "burned" the vellum. The stains, "burning" and erosion continues on the interior, although most of the erosion is on the first and last few blanks but the dark staining on the edges is throughout. The staining and darkening continues on the folding plates -- the plate "Prospetto" has a dark mark at the top and then a longer mark with some cracking in the lower center. The magnificent large plate showing Benedict received the staining at the lower fold, which corresponds to the center of the plate, with consequent staining and cracking. The smaller folding plate of San Salvatori escaped whatever liquid attacked the book. The interior staining is limited to the edges and is in the margins, not the text. Otherwise the pages are clean and unmarked, normal age-darkening and foxing, a light bit of humidity staining at the rear, everything is present. Institutional stamp at inside back cover. Marangoni was n Italian antiquarian, historian, philologist and theologian. He composed his historical works after moving to Rome where he began his collaboration with Canon Boldetti who was responsible for archaeological excavations of the Roman underground. This fascinating research gave impulse to Marangoni's penchant for municipal history. According to the handwritten obituary in the book, Maragoni died on a Wednesday morning in 1753 at a monastery dedicated to St. Jerome, where he had retired, somewhat troubled by illness and age. The obituary concludes: "he was famous for the many erudite works he composed and brought to light". The book is very scarce in commerce, with only 2 auction records in the last 50 years. While this copy is somewhat hurt, it is still attractive and informative. Priced to reflect condition. The plates were designed by Annibale Lancisi and engraved by Angelo Guiducci and Francesco Mazzone. . 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Fair/No Jacket. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.

        Bibliotheca Rinckiana, seu Supellex Librorum tam Impressorum, quam Mstorum, quos per Omnia Scientiarum Genera collegit

      ...cum Praefatione Adami Friderici Glafey...accedit Index locupletissimus. Engraved frontis. [72] (incl. frontis.), 1048, [285] pp. Thick 8vo, cont. grey paste-paper boards (one corner a little jammed). Leipzig: Widow of B.C. Fritsch, [Preface dated 1747]. The very rare sale catalogue of the large and important library formed by one of the great collectors of 18th-century Germany. Rink (1670-1746), professor of law and history at the University of Altdorf, was one of the leading international lawyers of his time and an active writer in the areas of his specialties. He formed several outstanding collections, including one of medals (a catalogue of which was published in 1766), a natural history cabinet, and an outstanding library. The present catalogue contains 8673 lots but many of the lots are comprised of large quantities of books (sometimes fifty or more in a lot), each described. Archer Taylor in his Book Catalogues (p. 13) praises the quality of the descriptions in this catalogue -- equal to any private library catalogue of the time -- and, indeed, they are very well done, with full transcriptions of titles and, oftentimes, with learned annotations. There is a very full index of 285 pages at the end. The library is predictably rich in law and history. Fine copy of a book for which we have been searching for many years. ❧ A.D.B., 28, pp. 645-46.

        Canal Aux Cygnes Noirs dans l'Isle Rottenest. Swarte Swaane Drift oo't Eiland Rottenest

      Amsterdam:. 1747.. Very good condition. One of the earliest depictions of Western Australia by a European, after Van Keulen's well-known view "Swartte Swaane drift opo het Eyland Rottenest" published in Francois Valentyn's "Oud en nieuw Oost-Indien" in 1724-6. This copper engraving is after a drawing by Jacobus van der Schley, published somewhat later in 1747 in "Historische beschrijvingen der Reizen" 1747. The print depicts two sailing ships & two long boats preparing to row up the Swan River, and the island discovered by the skipper de Vlamingh of the Dutch East India Company in 1696, and named Rat's Nest (Rottnest). With the S shaped river in the distance dotted with black swans. Copper engraving, 5 1/2 x 8" with large margins. See Landwehr, 266-7. Fine condition.

        La Chaumiere. Gravé d'Après le Tableau Original de Ppe. Wouvermens de même grandeur Qui est dans la Gallerie de Son Ex. Mgneur. Le Comte de Brühl Premier Ministre de S.M. le Roy de Pologne Electeur de Saxe

      Paris: Moyreau, 1747. Engraving, coloured by hand, by J. Moyreau. 17 x 13 1/2 inches. 23 7/8 x 18 5/16 inches. A fine composition, showing rural life in the Flemish low countries: a thatched cottage is seen to the right, in the foreground two men prepare a couple of pack-horses. One man talks to a women seated, who spines wool using a hand spindle. A traveller passes on a laden ass. In the doorway of the house a women plays with a young child. The title notes that the original painting was the same size as the engraving. 'Dutch painter and draughtsman. [Philips Wouwerman]... was the eldest son of the painter Paulus [Pauwels] Joostens Wouwerman of Alkmaar (d. 28 Sept 1642), whose two other sons, Pieter Wouwerman and Johannes Wouwerman, also became painters. Philips probably received his first painting lessons from his father, none of whose work has been identified. According to Cornelis de Bie, Wouwerman was next apprenticed to Frans Hals, although no trace of Hals's influence is discernible in Wouwerman's work. Wouwerman is also reputed to have spent several weeks in 1638 or 1639 working in Hamburg in the studio of the German history painter Evert Decker (d. 1647). While in Hamburg, he married Annetje Pietersz. van Broeckhof. On 4 September 1640 Wouwerman joined the Guild of St Luke in Haarlem, in which in 1646 he held the office of vinder (agent or finder). Given the many southern elements in his landscapes, it has repeatedly been suggested that Wouwerman must have travelled to France or Italy, but there is no documentary evidence that he left his native Haarlem for more than short periods. During his lifetime he must have attained a certain degree of prosperity, as demonstrated by the relatively large sums inherited by each of his seven children after his wife's death in 1670.

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

      50 - Leodii - Apud Everardum Kints, 1747 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. 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. Pages are extremely bright and clean given the age of the books, with only the very odd spot, and very slight age toning to page 449 of volume five. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED..

        The Oceana, and other Works of... Collected, Methodiz’d, and Review’d, with an Exact Account of his Life Prefix’d by John Toland. To which is added, an Appendix, containing all the Political Tracts wrote by this Author

      London: Printed for A. Millar, 1747. . Third edition, folio, (ii), xliv, 632, (14 Index), xlv-xlvi pp, with the final leaf of the preliminaries (Contents) bound at the end. Frontispiece, engraved portrait and one further plate (showing the Venetian Ballot), some very occasional light browning and foxing, armorial bookplates of W.H. Thompson and Henry Babington Smith, the latter being a senior civil servant who among other posts was private secretary to Lord Elgin and President of the National Bank of Turkey. Contemporary calf with some wear, rebacked in a lighter calf. A famous political work first published in 1656 during the Interregnum, which was described by David Hume as the “only valuable model of a commonwealth”. Influenced by a visit to Venice as a young man, “Oceana” is a fictional history of England where a new constitution has been formed, based upon property rights, and legislators are voted in and removed in a complicated rotation system. Pleasing neither side, Cromwell ordered the work seized, and Harrington was later imprisoned by Charles II.

        La Cause Badine

      Paris: chez Gersaint et chez Surugue, [1747]. Engraving, printed on laid paper. Very good condition with the exception of some repair in the bottom right hand corner of sheet. Image size: 13 7/8 x 19 inches. 14 1/2 x 19 5/8 inches. 16 1/2 x 21 1/4 inches. A charming arabesque depicting a group of children playfully engaged in an argument, from Moyreau's "Oeuvres Des Estampes Gravées d'après Les Tableaux & Desseins de feu Antoine Watteau." Born in Valenciennes in 1684, the versatile artist Jean- Antoine Watteau was primarily renowned for his fête galante paintings depicting aristocratic men and women amorously conversing in the outdoors. Following a brief apprenticeship to the local painter Jacques-Albert Gérin, Watteau moved to Paris in 1702 where he later studied with Claude Gillot, scene painter for the comédie italienne, who introduced him to the commedia dell'arte, which later became a recurrent theme in his work. In 1708, he began to work with the decorator Claude Audran, under whose tutelage he produced several innovative ornamental decorations that were for porcelain, furniture, and textiles. Watteau was also a prolific draughtsman and his varied and substantial oeuvre includes military, genre, religious, mythological, and theatrical scenes as well as tapestry cartoons. After Watteau's death in 1721, his friend Jean de Jullienne commissioned a comprehensive body of engravings after the artist's drawings and paintings, which further solidified his reputation as one of the most influential and prominent artists of the Rococo period. Cf. Benezit, Dictionnaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs, et Graveurs, vol 14, p. 473-6; cf. Dacier & Vuaflart Jean de Jullienne et Les Graveurs de Watteau au XVIIIeime Siècle, 119.

        The Farmer's Instructor; or, the Husbandman and Gardener'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 '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,' contrasts amusingly with the writer's own practice, according to those who went to visit him..." Henrey III 1442.
