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.

      (à la fin:) (Madrid), en la Imprenta de Lorenzo Francisco Mojados, Red de San Luis, s.d. (1748). - in-4. 109pp. Plein veau, roulette dorée autour des plats, dos lisse orné, tranches dorées (reliure de l'époque, quelques défauts). Edition Originale rarissime de cet opéra italien, l'un des premiers représenté en Espagne au Théâtre Royal du Buen-Retiro. Parfois attribué par erreur au librettiste vénitien Giovanni Palazzi, le livret de cette œuvre fut en réalité composée par le dernier représentant de la célèbre famille de Pic de la Mirandole, qui s'était marié à une Espagnole et qui résidait à Madrid. La musique était due au compositeur napolitain Giovanni Battista Mele qui fut, avec Francesco Corselli et Francesco Corradini, l'un des trois compositeurs italiens placés au service de la cour de Ferdinand VI et de la reine Maria Bárbara, tous deux mélomanes passionnés. Les acteurs du spectacle étaient également italiens, la plupart d'entre eux musiciens de la cour d'Espagne: Gaetano Basteri, Anna Peruzzi Francesco Giovannini, Teresa Castellini, Mariano Bufalini, Elisabetta Uttini, et Maria Heras. La scénograpie et les décors furent l'œuvre de Giacomo Pavia, de Bologne. Texte original italien avec la traduction espagnole en regard. Blason armorié du roi Ferdinand VI gravé sur bois en tête du volume, au centre d'un charmant encadrement typographique. Quelques défauts à la reliure mais très bon exemplaire agréablement relié à l'époque. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

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

      . Geneve, Barrilot & Fils, 1748, 8°, XII, 1 errata leaf, *129-*144, 145-304 pp; 1 fold. table (after p. *136); 3 fold. plates with 15 figures, contemp. full calf, gilt-ruled covers, raised bands, gilt-stamped spine; ExLibris Andreas Gedeon.. Fine copy of the First Edition - THE FIRST USE OF ELECTROCHOCK THERAPY. - - "Discovery of stimulation of muscles by electricity, and the first proof that paralysis could be successfully treated by electricity." Garrison & Morton - - This work which gives an account of the first successful use of electricity to reverse paralysis. "After a succinct account of what is known about electricity, Jean Jallabert (1712-1768) describes his observations 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, Nogues 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 - "He confirms the result obtained by Dr. Watson (A.D. 1745) that the electric fluid takes the shortest course by passing through the substance of a conducting wire instead of along its surface. By making his Leyden experiments with a jar in which the water is frozen, he shows that ice is a conductor of electricity. He improves upon Nollet's experiments, and demonstrates conclusively that plants which are electrified grow faster and have finer stems, etc., than those not electrified. He is the first to observe that a body pointed at one end and round at the other produces different appearances upon the same body, according as the pointed or the rounded end is presented to it.

        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.

      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.
