        Anson's Voyage round the world, chart with 6 engraved views: A chart of the Pacific Ocean from the equinoctial to the latitude of 39 1/2d No (with) The Most remarkable Transactions of Lord Anson's Voyage round the World

      London:: Printed for J. Hinton at the Kings Arms in St. Pauls Church Yard,. 1748.. Maps. Very good condition. A "picture strip" variation of a chart embellished with views depicting the major events of Anson's voyage around the world, with a map of the Philippines and Japan on the left margin of the map and of the west coast of North America on the right. Anson's voyage appears to have been the most popular book of maritime adventure of the eighteenth century. (Hill p. 318.). It was first published in 1748, and continues to be re-printed to this day. This map was issued in the Universal Magazine in 1748, reflecting the contemporary interest in his Voyage. It is referenced as UNIV-13 in David Jolly's "Maps in British Periodicals, Part I," Brookline, MA 1990, p. 188. Mr. Jolly remarks that the maps in the Universal Magazine are among the "best executed and most attractive of the magazine maps... many (with) decorative cartouches." Interestingly, the longitude is measured not from Greenwich, Paris or Philadelphia, but from St. Bernardino in the Philippines, with the notation outside the bottom right border "Longitd. E. from St. Bernardino". THE SIX ENGRAVED VIEWS, lettered A through F, are: A: View of Part of the Northeast Side of Terra del Fuego and the entrance of Straits Le Maire; B: Burning of the town Payta on the coast of Santa Fee in the South Sea; C: Chinese Vessels; D: A View of Cape Espiritu Santo on Samal and one of the Philippine Islands ... Majesty's ship Centurion engaged and took the Spanish Galleon called Nostra Seignora De Cavadonga; E: A View of the Watering Place at Tenian; and F, which is a compilation view, titled "A View of the Commodore's Tent at the Island of Juan Fernandes" has been modified with the addition of two sea lions in the foreground. Anson is depicted with his back to the viewer, looking towards his tents, and flanked by a male and a female sea lion rather incongruously reclining in the wooded landscape. Approximately 8 x 20 3/4". Copper engraving, old folds, now flat, trimmed close, tipped onto a larger sheet of paper. Very good condition overall.

        N. 330, Caryophyllus (Carnation)

      Amsterdam, 1748 Johann Wilhelm Weinmann (1683-1741) was an influential pharmacist and botanist, and director of the longest established pharmacy in Regensburg, Germany. Weinmann supervised the compilation of the important and valuable 18th century florigium, "The Phytanthoza Iconographia", which contains 1,025 plates of botanicals, aloe, cacti, trees, fruits and vegetables, depicting 4,000 species.Weinmann?s background as an apothecary is evident in the composition and style of the prints, which are both scientific and beautifully decorative as well. 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 were engraved with what was considered a recently developed process which combined etching and mezzotint. Having solid areas in colored mezzotint allowed for the subtle variations of tone in the flower petals and leaves, with watercolor details added.Many of these plates are engraved after the drawings of the distinguished German botanical artist Georg Dionysius Ehret (1708-1770), who was employed by Weinmann as a young man. These were Ehrets first published works before he went on to compile his own botanical volumes. The botanical descriptions for the first twenty-five plates was written by Johann Georg Nicolaus Dieterichs (1681-1737), who was succeeded by his son Ludwig Michael (1716-1747), and the work was completed after Weinmann's death by Ambrosius Karl Bieler (1693-1747).This mezzotint and line engraving, N. 330, Caryophyllus, measures 15.75" x 9.5" and is in very good condition with light foxing and staining throughout. Commonly called Carnations, these flowers are expertly hand-colored in shades of white, pink and red, and each are labeled on the plate. Carnations hold a variety of meanings and are worn on many holidays and special occasions throughout the world.

        Trattato della cognizione pratica delle resistenze geometricamente dimostrato ad uso d'ogni sorta d'edifizj, coll'aggiunta delle Armature di varie maniere di Coperti, Volte, ed altre cose di tal genere.

      nella Stamperia Reale,, in Torino, 1748 - In-4° (256x195mm), pp. (8), 313, legatura coeva in m. pelle e angoli con titolo e filetti in oro al dorso. Antiporta allegorica incisa su rame con edifici monumentali e strumenti dell'arte architettonica. Fregio ornamentale al titolo. Testatine e capilettera figurate incise su rame. In fine, 26 tavole ripiegate su rame di schemi e figure geometriche ed edificatorie. Restauri al dorso, alcune arrossature e fioriture interne. Bell'esemplare. Prima ed unica edizione di trattato matematico-edificatorio suddiviso in quattro parti, e dedicato alla costruzione di archi, volte, cupole, etc. La quarta parte è consacrata alle "resistenze", ai materiali necessari per la prassi edilizia, ai differenti tipi di legno impiegati in agricoltura, al modo e al periodo dell'anno in cui tagliare gli alberi atti alla fabbricazione del legname, al come produrre mattoni di qualità soddisfacente, alla scelta della sabbia e della calcina più idonee e delle fondamenta, alle istruzioni su come edificare in ogni tipo di terreno. L'opera fu ritenuta tra i migliori trattati settecenteschi di architettura pratica. "Il sig. Borra l'ha magistralmente trattata [l'arte architettonica intesa nell'accezione più strettamente pratica] in quest'opera, la quale mostra quanto fosse la di lui profondità nelle matematiche, e il suo buon gusto nell'architettura", scrive il Comolli, elogiando ampiamente il rigore del lavoro, particolarmente nella sua quarta parte, in cui "niente.vi ha tralasciato l'autore, che spetti all'argomento interessante, che ha preso a trattare circa la solidità, e perpetuità degli edifizj". Il Borra (San Giorgio Canavese, 1712-Torino, 1786) si formò alla scuola del Vittone, per cui incise alcune delle tavole per le "Istruzioni elementari per l'architettura". A Roma, nel 1749, incontrò il Wood, che lo invitò ad aggregarsi come disegnatore alla spedizione archeologica in Medio Oriente che egli si accingeva ad intraprendere con il Dawkins e il Brouverie. Terminata nel 1751, la spedizione fruttò due magnifici volumi su Palmira e Baalbek, apparsi rispettivamente nel 1753 e nel 1757, per cui il Borra disegnò le bellissime tavole incise dal Foudrinier. Tornato a Torino nel 1752, vi rimase per il resto della vita, progettando numerosi edifici riecheggianti la lezione vittoniana in quella città e in altre località pedemontane, tra cui Fossano.

        La Grote de Marechal. Gravé d'Après le Tableau Original de Ppe. Wouvermens de dix neuf pouces de large sur vingt trois pouces de haut

      Moyreau, Paris 1748 - A fine composition, showing life on the road in the Flemish low countries: two travellers wait outside a farrier's shop. One of their horses had thrown a shoe and the farrier prepares the hoof whilst his assistant runs out from the shop with a new shoe clasped in a pair of iron tongs. Meanwhile life continues round about. The title notes that the original painting was 23 inches high by 19 wide. '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. Engraving, coloured by hand, by J. Moyreau.

The posthumously published TELLIAMED, the main work of Benoit de Maillet (1656-1738), a well-traveled French diplomat and natural historian, is primarily a geological treatise. Presented as the theories of an Indian mystic encountered by a French missionary during an imaginary voyage to India, Maillet's work, based on his extensive travels throughout Egypt and other Mediterranean countries, attempts to relate man to geology and geology to the universe within the context of Cartesian logic. His theories are said to have influenced Diderot and Darwin. Cioranescu 41376. Sabin 43891.

        Anfiteatro di Pola Istri vicino al mare.

      Rome - John Wilton-Ely 127The watermark that is present is a fleur-de-lis but precisely which one is unknown due to the weak impression. This print is from the series "Alcune Vedute di Archi Trionfali ed altri monumenti inalzati da Romani parte de quali se veffono in Roma e parte per L'Italia"This group of views, first published in 1748 as the Antichita Romane de' Tempi della Repubblica e de' primi Imperatori, was issued in several editions during Piranesi's lifetime. At a date sometime after 1761 the title was altered to Alcune Vedute di Archi Trionfali. . ., by which the work is general. The change of the title probably occurred towards the end of the artist's life since his son Francesco, added the view of the Temple of Minerva Medica to the series at the time of the change." (John Wilton-Ely pg 144)Giovanni Battista Piranesi was one of the leading figures in the development of the neoclassical style in the late 18th Century. As architect, archaeologist, artist, designer, collector, and antiquities dealer, he produced a series of etchings and engravings depicting the glories of ancient Rome. These fine prints served as source material for other architects and designers. He was born in Venice on the 4th October 1720. The son of a stone-mason, he was educated as an architect under his maternal uncle Matto Lucchesi and under Carlo Zucchi. In 1740 Piranesi left Venice for Rome, there he studied etching under Giuseppe Vasi. He appears to have had little success in these early years in Rome and as his father was unable to continue his allowance returned to Venice in 1744. He was soon, however, encouraged to return to Rome by Giuseppe Wagner, a successful engraver and publisher of Venice. This time he achieved success, and a constant series of works, illustrating architecture and antiquities, issued from his studio until his death in 1778. His output in etched plates is enormous (about 1000 numbers in all). While he achieved a work of magnitude in pictorial records of Roman monuments of antiquity and of the Renaissance, and gave immense archæological, antiquarian, and topographical value to this work, the artistic quality always predominates. He was fond of peopling his ruins with Callot-like figures, and "like Callot makes great use of the swelling line" (Hind). He had two sons and a daughter, all of whom helped him in his work and after his death carried on his publications in Rome and Paris. They were Francesco (born 1748 or 1756; died 1810), Pietro (who lived till after 1807) and Laura (born 1750). His position in Rome and in Europe after 1760 was a prominent one. He was well-known figure to the wealthy English visitors in Rome and was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1757. Most of his life was passed in Rome, etching, writing, publishing, and directing a workshop in which the restoration and sale of antiques played a considerable part.He was famous for his poetic views of Rome and also his fantastic imaginary interiors. His skills, allied to his deep knowledge of archaeology, provided the substance for his Vedute (Views), a series of 135 etchings of ancient and contemporary Rome, published from 1745 onwards, which established the popular mental image of the city. Vasi.et Ornamenti Antichi was a collection of 110 etchings documenting large sculptural vases, together with other antiquities excavated (and in some cases created) in Italy in the 18th century. The prints were initially separately issued and sold by Piranesi over a period of several years and subsequently collected in two folio volumes, each with its own title page, in 1778. They illustrate a wide range of genuine antiquities, as well as Piranesi's own collections, from utilitarian objects such as cinerary urns, lamps, and sarcophagi to monumental vases. The plates in Vasi often included text by Piranesi with information about where the objects were discovered and their contemporary location, and the prints bore dedications to his patrons, colleagues, visi

La vida del Bienaventurado Francisco de Posadas (1644-1713) beatificado en 1818, está plagada de hechos singulares que llenan la escena cordobesa del Siglo XVII. Salvo una corta estancia como predicador de los mineros de Almadén, su dedicación se centró en la atención de las almas y la beneficencia. Como escritor se le debe, entre otras, una obra intitulada «El Triunfo de la Castidad contra los Errores de Molinos», y como guardián de la moral no cabe olvidar su decisoria actuación para que fuese prohibida la representación de Comedias por el Ayuntamiento de Córdoba.

        De Situ Orbis

      nbsp; Samuel Luchtmans 1748 - An extremely scarce copy of A. Gronovius's 1748 edition of this ancient geographical text. With engraved frontispiece andone folding map (collated complete). Withseveral illustrations in the text throughout, decorative tail pieces and capitals. With full notes by Hermolai Barbari, Petri Joannis Oliverii, Fredenandi Nonii Pintiani, Petri Ciacconii, Andreae Schotti, Isaaci Vossii, et Jacobi Gronovii. Added to Teri Joannis Nunnesii and Jacobi Perizonii. Care of Abrahamo Gronovio. Some Greek text included. Pomponius Mela, who wrote around AD 43, was the earliest Roman geographer. He was born in Tingentera (Algeciras) and died c. AD 45. His short work (De situ orbis libri III. ) occupies less than one hundred pages of ordinary print. It is laconic in style and deficient in method, but of pure Latinity, and occasionally relieved by pleasing word-pictures. Except for the geographical parts of Pliny's Historia naturalis (where Mela is cited as an important authority) the De situ orbis is the only formal treatise on the subject in Classical Latin. The general views of the De situ orbis mainly agree with those current among Greek writers from Eratosthenes to Strabo; the latter was probably unknown to Mela. But Pomponius is unique among ancient geographers in that, after dividing the earth into five zones, of which two only were habitable, he asserts the existence of antichthones, inhabiting the southern temperate zone inaccessible to the folk of the northern temperate regions from the unbearable heat of the intervening torrid belt. On the divisions and boundaries of Europe, Asia and Africa, he repeats Eratosthenes; like all classical geographers from Alexander the Great (except Ptolemy) he regards the Caspian Sea as an inlet of the Northern Ocean, corresponding to the Persian and Arabian (Red Sea) gulfs on the south. The first edition of Mela was published at Milan in 1471; the first good edition was by Vadianus (Basel, 1522), superseded by those of Voss (1658), J Gronovius (1685 and 1696), A Gronovius (1722 and 1728), and Tzschucke (18061807), in seven parts (Leipzig; the most elaborate of all); G Paithey's (Berlin, 1867), gives the best text. Condition: In a decorative vellum binding with gilt illustration. Externally sound although rubbed with marks. Institutional markings to spine. Internally, firmly bound. Bright with light scattered spotting, dusting to the textblock edge affecting the margins. Monastic library bookplate to front pastedown and ink stamp to front free-endpaper. Small copperplate signature to front free-endpaper. Frontispiece has been repaired but has a small closed tear. Overall: VERY GOOD [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
