        Rom, Blick vom Monte Mario auf die Stadt, im Vordergrund figürliche Staffage.

      . Zeitgenössisch aquarellierte Umrißradierung, mit schwarzer Tuschlinie umrandet und mit braun laviertem ca. 1 cm breitem Rand, in der Platte links unten signiert "Keiserman (sic!)", auf Bütten mit Wasserzeichen: C & I Honig sowie bekröntes Posthornwappen. 30,5:43,2 cm. In lichten Gelb- und Blautönen aquarelliert, wie für L. Ducros und seinen Schüler Kaisermann üblich. Leicht fleckig, doch von sehr gutem Gesamteindruck.. Um unter der Anleitung von L. Ducros (1748-1810) zu arbeiten, war Kaisermann 1789 nach Rom gekommen. Die Vedutenmalerei seines Lehrers wurde für ihn maßgebend. Nach einem mehrjährigen Aufenthalt in Neapel ließ er sich 1797 in Rom nieder. Um 1800 nahm er für sechs Jahre den erst 19jährigen Künstler B. Pinelli (1781-1835) in seinen Dienst, damit dieser ihm die Figurenstaffage in seine Bilder zeichne. Gemeinsam unternahmen sie Studienfahrten in die nähere Umgebung. Sie widmeten sich u.a. intensiv der Darstellung von Ruinen und Landschaften, den Wasserfällen von Tivoli und Terni, den Patriziervillen des Albanergebirges in Aquarellen und Umrißradierungen. Seit 1808 hatte er einen Neffen, Franz Knebel, als Gehilfen, der am 16. Januar 1822 in Rom starb. Ein gleichnamiger Neffe wurde sein Nachfolger, wurde Kaisermanns Erbe und verkaufte 1835 den Nachlaß. Mit dem Vertrieb seiner Veduten an begeisterte Romreisende war Kaisermann sehr erfolgreich. Seine Kunst wurde von den Zeitgenossen allerdings kontrovers beurteilt. A.W. von Schlegel (1767-1845) zählte ihn 1805 in einem Schreiben an Goethe zu den besten römischen Landschaftsmalern, während J.A. Koch (1768 - 1839) über seine Kunst sinngemäß sagte, sie sei keinen Schuß Pulver wert.

        Experiences sur L'Electricité, avec quelque Conjectures sur la Cause de ses Effets.

      Geneve, Barrilot & Fils, 1748. 8vo. Contemporary full calf binding with gilt crowned monogram to centre of boards. Five raised bands and gilt title-label to richly gilt spine. All edges of boards gilt. A bit of wear to extremities. Very light browning to the first leaves and to the plates, the edges of which are also a bit bent, otherwise fine. Printed on good paper. A very nice copy indeed. XII,304 pp., 1 folded table and 3 folded engraved plates.. First edition of this groundbreaking work, which describes for the first time the use of electricity for treatment of paralysis, laying the foundation for the use of electricity in medicine and for what was later to be known as electroconvulsive therapy. By applying electroshocks with a Leyden jar, Jallabert discovered that he could stimulate muscle regeneration and blood increase in a paralyzed limb, describing this breakthrough discovery for the first time in the present work. "After a succint account of what is known about electricity, Jallabert describes his observatuions on how electricity can stimulate muscles and reverse paralysis. Together with Guiot, a leading surgeon, he examines a locksmith called Nogues, and finds him paralysed on the right side as a result of an accidental blow to the head fourteen years before. The man could not move his arm, he had no sensation in it and he had no control over the fingers in his hand. Holding a Leiden jar in his healthy hand and touching it with his paralysed hand, Noguesd was treated with electric shocks for over an hour every day. Within two weeks an astonishing improvement in his condition was noted and three months later the patient had regained full use of his arm." (Gedeon, Science and technology in Medicine, No. 19)."This comprehensive work embraces the knowledge of the time on electric phenomena and theory; it has been frequently quoted. The author considers electricity to be a subtile, elastic fluid." (Wheeler Gift No 349). Wellcome IV:342 (but only having the second edition, 1749); Gedeon:19

"He compiled this work, consisting only of seven folio leaves, as a first outline of what in its further development became the foundation of botanical and zoological classification systems. Linné was first and foremost a systematist, subordinating all botanical problems to that of classification. He established the principles of class, order, genus and species for all plants and animals. Attemps at classification had, of course been made before: Caesalpinus, Bauhinus and Tournefort had based their scheme on the qualities of certain single parts - seed and fruit for Caesalpinus, petals of flowers for Tournefort. John Ray had maintained that all charateristics of a plant should be taken into consideration: Linné followed Ray in this and in making the idea of the species his starting point. This is the fundamental difference between what is called an "artificial" and a "natural" system of classification. Linné had read Camerarius and he made his discovery of the sexuality of plants the focal point of his system. He devised a method of 24 classes dependant of the number, union and relative length of the stamens: the classes then being subdivided into orders according to the number of the styles. It was the simplest system yet devised and therefore readily accepted. It was, however, not capable of universal application because the development of flowers is less uniform than the Linnaean system assumed. It has, therefore, been superseded by a more natural system. Linné himself stated that eventually a more natural method would have to be evolved, based "upon the simple symmetry of all the parts". In his time, however, his classification was the most universal available and was of immense value at a period when there was such a great expansion of botanical knowledge. It was further developed in his Classes Plantarum, 1738, and Philosophia Botanica, 1751, the latter book being of particular wide influence. Printing and the Mind of Man, 192. See also: Björn Dal. Sveriges zoologiske litteratur, p. 41.His method of binomial nomenclature using genus and species names was further expounded when he published "Fundamenta Botanica".

I Systema Naturae introducerede Linné en systematisk inddeling af verden i tre riger - dyreriget, planteriget og mineralriget - og placerede de kendte dyre- og plantearter i et hierarkisk system bestående af riger, rækker, ordener, familier, slægter og arter.

        An Account of a Voyage for the Discovery of a North-West Passage by Hudson's Streights, to the Western and Southern Ocean of America.Performed in the Year 1746 Annd 1747, in the Ship California.

      Sold by Mr. Joliffe [And Others], London - 1748-1949, 1st Edition. () Near fine. (2),vii,237; (2),1-328,313-326,(18) pp. Octavo. (21.4 X 13.7 cm.) 4 engraved plates, 6 folding engraved maps. (3 of the maps with repaired tears and one with a narrow slit at the fold). Contemporary speckled calf, covers ruled in gilt, spine in compartments with raised bands, morocco lettering-pieces. With the 18th century engraved bookplate of renowned British architect, Joseph Pickford, to each volumes pastedown. JCB (3)I:872; Sabin 20808; Streeter 3640; TPL 206. The expedition was dispatched by the North West Committee in 1746 as part of an attempt to verify the assertions of Arthur Dobbs and Christopher Middleton in the quest for a passage. The two ships which made up the expedition examined Wager Bay and overwintered at the Hudson's Bay Company's York Factory. Streeter describes this work, which is rarely seen on the market, as a "significant item in the literature relating to attempts at finding the Northwest Passage.it tells of a voyage undertaken to sustain Arthur Dobbs' claim that a northwest passage existed leading from Hudson's Bay". The outcome was to prove the opposite. Among the illustrations is a plate of an Indian in a kayak, and another shows an Indian tent and equipment. TPL and Sabin call for only five maps though the present copy has six, as have other copies we have seen. A very attractive, superior, unsophisticated copy of a rare Dobb's / Middleton item.

        Tabulae Anatomicae

      1748. WANDELAAR, Jan. Tabulae Sceleti et Musculorum Corporis Humani. By Bernard Siegfried Albinus. Two large engraved plates (IV and VIII) executed by C. Grignon after Jan Wandelaar. Folio, plate size: 572 x 410 mm, sheet size: 750 x 570 mm, professionally matted and framed. London: F & P. Knapton, 1747-48. |~||~||~||~||~| The most famous plates from Albinus's Baroque anatomical atlas: the two masterpieces by Jan Wandelaar of the human skeletal figures posing with a rhinoceros. These impressions were recut by Grignon and reprinted by Knapton in London five years after the first Amsterdam printing. Wandelaar's backgrounds are intended to be both beautiful and poetically evocative, a meditation on nature and mortality that complements the idealized figure of humanity. These copperplates established a new standard in anatomical illustration, and remain unsurpassed for their artistic beauty and scientific accuracy. Plates IV and VIII depict the skeletal and muscular figures standing in front of a magnificent rhinoceros, drawn from life by Wandelaar -- the handsome rhinoceros, kept at the Amsterdam zoo, represents the first accurate graphic representation of the species. According to the Norman Collection Catalogue, Albinus's Tabulae is one of "the most artistically perfect of anatomical atlases. Albinus and his artist Jan Wandelaar used some ingenious methods to prepare the illustrations, including the establishment of an optically ideal point of view (one at which all of the bones of the skeleton are seen at right angles), dividing the human figure into sections using a mathematically constructed grid, and transferring each section onto paper in true size with the aid of compass and ruler. In addition, 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 the Amsterdam zoo in 1741. Because the rhinoceros had not been portrayed in European art from a living example until the arrival of the Amsterdam specimen, Albinus and Wandelaar adopted the creature as a symbol of their atlas, which depicted the living human body" (Norman 29).

        Telliamed ou entretiens d'un philosophe indien avec un missionnaire françois sur la diminution de la mer, la formation de la terre, l'origine de l'homme, &c. Mis en ordre sur les mémoires de M. de Maillet. Par J. A.G***

Back tooled raised. Part of title in red morocco. Skillful restorations, almost invisible caps and nerves. Good copy, fresh. Maillet set up in this fictional work important theses he has wrought by his geological studies in Egypt and the Arabian countries, where he was also able to see rare manuscripts of scientific theories. He thinks that the earth is actually a star and she lives by perpetual cycles that lead again to become like the sun. This treaty is also known to bring the firstfruits of the theory of Darwinian evolution, Maillet by sea origin of all living beings. Contemporaries Maillet not admire his materialistic theories, which now seem so avant-garde and revolutionary.

        Plano Scenographico, dela Ciud.d delos Reyes,o Lima Capital delos Reynos de Peru

      Madrid 1748 - This detailed plan of Lima, Peru is one of the best available from this period of history. Drawn after the addition of the Rimac district, the map is rendered with the utmost detail and precision. Within the city's walls, the gridded layout of the streets is clearly discernible. Within each square, three-dimensional drawings of houses surround inner courtyards decorated with trees and gardens. The map is oriented with north to the bottom such that the Rimac River runs across the lower half of the sheet. Numbered keys decorated with foliage fill the upper corners, with a title cartouche and scale between them. The map appeared in Jorge Juan y Antonio de Ulloa's Relacion Historica del Viaje a la America Meridional. It is a dark impression in very good condition. Ample margins with chipping to the top, not affecting the image. Jorge Juan y Antonio de Ulloa (1716-1795) was a Spanish explorer, author, and politician connsidered one of the best European scientists of his time. He began his research in South America in concert with the French Academy of Sciences and traveled around the continent for ten years. His Relacion Historia del Viaje a la America Meridional, which he published with Jorge Juan y Sanctilla, provided a detailed geography and natural history of the continent. This map is a lovely example of the work he produced. Map. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 15 x 21". Sheet measures 17.5 x 26" at widest, 17.5 x 22.5" at smallest.

        A System of Natural Philosophy, Being a Course of Lectures in Mechanics, Optics, Hydrostatics, and Astronomy; Which are Read in St Johns College Cambridge In Two Volumes

      Cambridge: Printed By J. Bentham, Printer to the University, for W. Thurlbourn..., 1748. [24], 496. [4], 497-1105pp, [7]. Complete with 31 folding plates, and a folding map (including a depiction of California as an island). Contemporary speckled calf, contrasting morocco lettering-pieces, gilt. Slightly rubbed to extremities, small chip to head of Vol I, with some cracking to lower joint of Vol II. Armorial bookplates to endpapers. Paper flaw to Fff2, without loss of text. A handful of plates misfolded. Occasional marginal worming, sporadic browning, else a crisp and well preserved set. Thomas Rutherforth (1712-71), English moral philosopher and science teacher. Although elected fellow of St John's, Cambridge in 1733, Rutherforth accepted only private instructees in natural philosophy whilst focusing his university lecturing on Divinity, in which he took the Regius chair in 1756. His almost wholly Newtonian course was outlined in the Latin Ordo institutionum physicarum (Cambridge, 1743), and greatly expanded for a wider audience in this present vernacular work. Profusely illustrated, A System of Natural Philosophy was successful as a general textbook of Newtonianism, communicating a coherent system of natural philosophy to an audience often lacking the mathematical background expected by other works, including almost one thousand subscribers. ESTC T150276.. First Edition. Quarto.

        N.469, Doronicum Maximum Foliis Caulem

      Published in Amsterdam in 1736 - 1748 - A wonderfully detailed Mezzotint and line engraving, finished by hand in watercolorby Johann Wilhelm Weinmann from his amazing botanical book "Phytanthoza Iconographia"published in Amsterdam in 1736 - 1748. Overall this print measures 9.75"x15&#148;. Johann Wilhelm Weinmann was an influential pharmacist and botanist, and director of the longest established pharmacy in Regensburg. Weinmann supervised the compilation of this valuable 18th century florigium, which contains 1,025 plates of plants, trees, fruits and vegetables, depicting 4,000 species. Weinmann&#146;s background as an apothecary is evident in the composition and style of the prints, which are both scientific and beautifully decorative as well. Various artists were employed in the production, including the distinguished German botanical draughtsman Georg Dionysius Ehret (1708-1770), whom was then in his twenties. The Phytanthoza Iconographia is remarkable not only for the beauty and accuracy of its illustrations, but also for the successful use of color printing. Most of the plates have solid areas in colored mezzotint, with watercolor details added. Overall this print is in good condition with some light staining on margins.Also a reapired 5 inch tear to left margin.

      1748 - Contemporary half calf with raised bands. New tan label, years of printing stamped in gilt at bottom of spine in recent times. Sprinkled edges. Small damage to head of spine, old MS title in two of the spine compartments. A few stains, some minor soiling, ink stain on p. 69 in the second work. A nice volume with bookstamp "F M" on title in the first work.Through "Mineralogia" Wallerius became known all over Europe and the book was translated in German, French and Russian. tyska, franska och ryska. Wallerius used his own large collection comprising over 4000 specimens as a source and he also had a fruitful collaboration with another Swedish mineralogist, Daniel Tilas. The minerals are divided into four classes or "flocks": soils, stones, ores and "hardened stones". In "Hydrologia" Wallerius attempts to enlarge the three realms of nature with a fourth one, the realm of water, which is divided in accordance with the model which had been used for the animal, plant and mineral kingdoms. "Hydrologia" must be seen as a pioneer work of its kind, but unlike "Mineralogia" it did not result in any imitators. It stands alone as a monument representing a zeal to systematize in the spirit of Wollff and Linnaeus, taken to absurd levels. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Der blutige Schau-Platz. oder Martyrer Spiegel der Tauffs-Gesinnten oder Wehrlosen-Christen, die um des Zeugnuss Jesu ihres Seligmachers willen gelitten haben; und seynd getödtet worden, von Christi Zeit an bis auf das Jahr 1660

      Ephrata in Pensylvanien: Drucks und Verlags der Brüderschafft Folio extra (35.5 cm; 14"). 2 parts in 1 vol.. 56, 478 pp., [2, 7] ff., 949, [1] p., [5] ff.; without the frontis.. 1748&#150;49 First American edition, here in German translation by Johann Peter Miller (1710&#150;96) from the original Dutch, of the famous "Martyrs&#39; Mirror" (Martyrer Spiegel der Tauffs-Gesinnten oder Wehrlosen-Christen), a history of baptism century by century alternating with accounts of Christian martyrs who suffered for their faith under both pagan and Christian governments.This translation and printing were done at the behest of the Pennsylvania Mennonite community and done at the famous Ephrata Cloister in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. The Cloister was a pietistic community that separated from the Schwarzenau Brethren movement of Alexander Mack of Schwarzenau in Germany, and was established in Pennsylvania in 1732 by Johann Conrad Beissel. Book I chronicles events from the 1st to 15th centuries and II surveys the 16th and 17th centuries to 1660.Evans tells us that "The Ephrata Brethren were three years engaged upon its printing and binding. . . . The engraved frontispiece [not present in this copy], representing the army of the martyrs marching to Heaven is generally missing, as the design was offensive to the Mennonites.&#148; Others have suggested that the frontispiece was suppressed and that many copies were bound and issued without it. (It was not engraved in the New World, but rather in Germany and possibly by M. Eben.)Provenance: 18th-century ownership signature of David Worther on title-page of part II. In 1869 a gift of the Shallenberger family to the Crozer Theological Seminary; faint library pressure-stamps on main title- and last leaf of the defunct Crozer Library. Contemporary brown sheep over bevelled wood boards, rebacked sympathetically without labels; new endpapers and fly-leaves. Brass corner bosses and evidence of brass and leather closures. Waterstaining in many margins, occasionally into portions of the text; stray brown stains (sometimes heavy and into text), occasional foxing; otherwise, minor rents or holes in some lower margins, and finger soiling in lower margins from turning of pages. Old ink stains into text on 6 pp. obscuring the text a bit. Ownership indicia as above, with an instance or two additionally of library pencilling. Clearly a copy that was used, read, and loved enough to survive in good strong shape into the 21st century.

        A Voyage Round the World In the Years MDCCXL, I, II, III, IV Compiled from Papers and Other Materials of the Right Honourable Geoge Lord Anson, and published under his direction by Richard Walter, M A , Chaplain of His Majesty's Ship the Centurion, in that Expedition

      London: Printed for the author by John and Paul Knapton, 1748. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Quarto. pp. [xxiv], 417, complete with 42 engraved folding maps and plates, subscribers list, directions to the binder for placement of the plates; p. 319 printed as 219. Calf spine in six compartments with red label, marbled boards. Leather starting to split along the joints, but hinges completely sound; pages clean and bright, with wide margins and no foxing. Several plates do have offsetting from the text, a few have minor lossed to the margins, and one map has a tissue repair to the verso. At war with Spain, England sent eight ships under Anson's command to harrass the Spaniards on the western coast of South America, hoping to cut off supplies to the Spanish from the Pacific area. The expedition was delayed in preparation and arrived too late in the season for safe passage around Cape Horn. Several of the ships were lost, and hundreds of men went down with them. Despite greatly diminished manpower (with many other succumbing to scurvy on the long voyage across the Pacific), Anson continued pursuing Spanish interests, and in June 1743 captured the Manila galleon and its treasure of 400,000 pounds sterling. When the party at last returned to London, more than 1300 members of the original expedition had perished, and just 145 remained. "Anson's voyage is remembered as a classic tale of endurance and leadership in the face of fearful disasters, but to the British public of 1744 it was the treasure of the galleon, triumphantly paraded through the streets of London, which did something to restore national self-esteem battered by an unsuccessful war" (DNB). Cox I, p. 49; Hill 1817.
