1749. The plate marks can still be seen on the paper. The prints are glass-framed with a bamboo look. There are spots on both prints, but could be professionally cleaned. The prints are circa 1780 and are from excellent original hand-colored, copper plate engravings. Two prints of copper plate engravings by Francois Nicolas Martinet... Each is in a bamboo-look frame... The first drawing reads above, "960" and below, "Anhinga noir de Cayenne."... The second drawing reads above, "959" and below, "L'Anhinga, de Cayenne" ... From what I can gather from my research, the prints show male and female Anhingas. The Anhinga (Scientific Name: Anhinga anhinga) is a unique bird with no subspecies. The word "Anhinga" is derived from a Tupi (Brazilian) Indian name, anhingá or anhangá, for the devil bird, an evil spirit of the woods. It is also know as a snake bird due to its snakelike neck. In nature, the actual Anhinga's size is between a crow and a goose. "Adult male Anhingas are black with silvery to white streaks on the back and wings. Females and immatures have a pale tan head, neck, and breast. The bill, legs, and feet are yellowish orange". Their length is 29.5-37.4 in (75-95 cm) and wingspan 42.9 in (109 cm). These birds are found in southeastern United States and Central America. Nearly all studies of this bird have been done in the United States; little is known about it in Central and South America. Reference: allaboutbirdsdotorg and birdsnadotorg Anhinga from Cayenne Offered are two prints (original work was an engraving) by naturalist, artist and French court engraver, F.N.

Deux rares éditions dont celle sur le quartier sphérique de 1749 semble manquer à toutes les bibliothèques françaises et internationales (d'après le CCFR, le SUDOC et Worldcat). En effet, la BnF conserve, avec le même titre, un texte non daté de 50 pages et la bibliothèque de Saint-Malo possède une édition de 1785 parue dans cette même ville chez Hovius fils. Toutefois, on connait également des éditions plus anciennes en mains privées imprimées à Brest ou également des versions manuscrites mais rien au Havre, ni à la date de 1749. Le quartier sphérique de Deslongchamps semble avoir été inventé à la toute fin du XVIIe siècle et son enseignement semble avoir été un classique dans les écoles de navigation, ce qui explique la publication de ces multiples livrets dans des villes portuaires et à vocation maritime.

All'opera sono aggiunte poi 2 vedute realizzate dal figlio Francesco. Per la prima volta furono edite dall'editore Giovanni Bouchard nel 1751 (34 lastre), successivamente dallo stesso Piranesi editore a Palazzo Tomati in Roma (scritta che appare su molte tavole), fino alla stesura definitiva composta da 137 lastre. Successivamente alla morte dell'autore le lastre furono ereditate dal figlio Francesco, che ne curò la pubblicazione prima nella capitale, e successivamente a Parigi. Le lastre furono poi acquisite dalla Calcografia Camerale, oggi Calcografia Nazionale, dove sono tuttora conservate.

Edition originale, rare. Une vignette de titre par Eisen.Reliure en plein veau glacé et marbré d'époque. Dos lisse orné à la grotesque. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Coiffe élimées. Frottements aux mors et coins.L'essai de philosophie morale est l'un des deux principaux textes (et le premier chronologiquement) de philosophie de Maupertuis, qui, comme tous les savants de son époque, est pluridisciplinaire. Le second écrit dans ce domaine sera l'Essai de cosmologie paru en 1750. Il ne faudrait pas se méprendre sur le titre classique donné à ce traité ; si l'Essai est une réflexion sur le bien et le mal, c'est une vision du bien et du mal avant tout sensualiste, basée sur l'expérience sensible d'un événement, en considérant que tous les événements ne sont que des phénomènes. L'oeuvre a été publiée à Berlin, patrie d'accueil du philosophe à cette époque. *** [English translation available upon request. Contact us for any information!].

Item #47291 Jervas' "translation of Cervantes' novel Don Quixote, published posthumously in 1742 as being made by Charles 'Jarvis' - because of a printer's error - has since come to be known as 'the Jarvis translation'. Jervas was first to provide an introduction to the novel including a critical analysis of previous translations of Don Quixote. It has been highly praised as the most accurate translation of the novel up to that time, but also strongly criticised for being stiff and humourless, although it went through many printings during the 19th century."

PUFENDORF, BARON [SAMUEL VON]
London: Printed for J. and J. Bonwicke et al., 1749. Fifth Edition, carefully corrected. This is the most complete English edition of a landmark in the history of natural and international law, an important Enlightenment treatise that was inspired by the concepts put forth by Grotius and Hobbes, but a study that gives them a new warmth and humanity, as well as emphasizing the role of the divine. In this work, which first appeared in Latin in 1672 and in English in 1703, Pufendorf begins with the notion that moral sense is the essence of what makes us human, and that (contrary to Hobbes' view) peace, not war, is our natural condition. He grants humanity free will, and believes that our wills incline us toward the good. The natural law which allows us to recognize what is just, he believes, is inspired by the divinity. Applying principles such as the right of self-defense or the duty of keeping promises, Pufendorf deduces how specific laws should justly carry these notions into effect. He discusses civil law, including such topics as marriage law and the rights and duties of the father; government, including the duties and proper powers of monarchs and ministers; and international affairs, including treaties and war. He believes that humane conduct of international relations should be the rule throughout the world, not just between Christian and Christian. Born in Saxony, Samuel Pufendorf (1632-94) taught law first in Heidelberg and then in Lund, receiving the title of Baron from the king of Sweden before his death.. 400 x 250 mm.

Russia: For sale is an antique slavonic church book "Stone of Faith (Kamen' Veri), Moscow 1749". This book is from my private collection and is in a very good condition, befitting its age. Please see the photos. This book is 1749 edition "Stone of Faith" (full title is "Stone of Faith: the Orthodox Church is a holy son for affirmation and spiritual creation. For those who stumble upon a stone of temptation to rebel and correction") is a polemical work of Metropolitan Stefan Yovarsky, aimed against the Protestant sermosn in Russia. The book is primarily designed for Orthodox parishioners that tend toward Protestantism. Metropolitan Stefan examines dogmas challenged at that time by Protestants. Faith of the book The book was written in 1718 but first came out only ten years later in Oktober 1728 under strict supervision of Teofilakt Lopatinski. First edition of the book had 1200 copies. The book was republished in Moscow in 1720 and in Kyiv in 1730. The book has caused a strong rumble among certain court of the throne, which were guided by the German Protestants. Many were affected by the publishing of the book. That is why the book was banned in 19 Aug 1732 by the highest decree of the empress. During reign of Elizabeth Petrovna the book has been published in 1749 again. Then it was republished several times but this time in the 19th century: 1836 and 1843.

Albin, Eleazar
London: Printed for William Innys, 1749. [108], 100 hand-coloured engraved plates. Hardback. 4to, cont. full polished calf, gt, rubbed and a little scuffed, top and fore-edges of boards neatly restored, small nick to top of spine; marbled endpapers; one plate bound inverted; some offsetting from plates to facing text pages; some occasional minor foxing.

Blackburne's grandfather, also John (1693-1786), was a noted amateur botanist who cultivated impressive gardens at Orford, while his daughter, Anna (1726-1793), the younger John's aunt, corresponded with Carl Linnaeus and Johann Reinhold Forster on entomological subjects. 5th edition. For this edition the entire text was reset and a number of errors corrected. This copy omits the 26-page section to the rear containining Derham's notes and index, which according to Lisney is 'often missing', however it is not called for in ESTC. The attractive hand-coloured plates illustrate mostly butterflies and moths and their larvae on food-plants, and a few illustrate other insects.Eleazar Albin (d. 1742?) was a naturalist and watercolour painter.

Stephani et aliorum, nuper etiam in Anglia, eruditissimorum hominum curas digestus, locupletatus, emendatus. Details zum Buch Hauptwerk Gesners - die Frucht zehnjähriger Arbeit. "Durch Verbesserung zahlreicher Irrtümer (früherer Lexikographen), durch Ausmerzung der dem römischen Altertum fremden Worte und Namen, endlich durch großartige Bereicherungen aus dem Gebiete der Phraseologie, der Wort- und der Sacherklärung ... bezeichnet es ohne Zweifel den bedeutendsten Fortschritt, welcher auf dem Gebiete der lateinischen Lexikographie seit dem Begründer derselben, Robert Estienne (Stephanus) gemacht worden ist" (Bursian 391). Gesner, der frühere Rektor der Leipziger Thomasschule, war 1734 an die neugegründete Göttinger Universität berufen worden, wo er neben Haller und Mosheim die prägende Gestalt wurde: "Ihm verdankt die Universität ihre Richtung auf die historischen Wissenschaften im Gegensatz zu den spekulativen, ihm die Begründung der Bibliothek, die unter seiner Verwaltung schon damals zu einer der bedeutendsten Deutschlands wurde ..., ihm die Errichtung des philologischen Seminars (dem ersten dieser Art in Deutschland), in welchem die Lehrer der gelehrten Schulen eine geeignete Ausbildung erhielten" (ADB 9, 98).- Zaunmüller 254.
