      Paris: Ballard Fils, 1749. 2 volumes. 182 pages with fold out frontispiece map and three additional folding engravings; 319 pages with seven folding engravings. half-titles in each (title pages improperly marked, first volume as second and vice versa). Duodecimo (6 1/2" x 3 1/2") bound in original publisher's full uniform contemporary French sponged calf, with gilt-tooled spines. First French edition after the 1748 English edition.Henry Ellis was a traveler, hydrographer, and colonial governor, returned from Italy in 1746, just in time to find an expedition to search for a north-west passage on the point of sailing. He appears to have been in easy circumstances; his name stands in the list of subscribers to the north-west expedition, and he had sufficient interest to get attached to it, nominally as agent for the committee, and really as hydrographer, surveyor, and mineralogist, the expedition, consisting of two vessels, the Dobbs galley of 180 and California of 150 tons, left Gravesend on 20 May 1746, joined the Hudson's Bay convoy in Hollesley Bay, and finally sailed from Yarmouth on the 31st. They parted from the convoy on 18 June, made Resolution Island on 8 July, and after a tedious passage through Hudson's Straits rounded Cape Digges on 8 August, and on the 11th 'made the land on the west side the Welcome, in latitude 64° N.' Bad weather drove them to the southward, and prevented their doing anything more that season. They wintered in Hayes River, in a creek about three miles above Fort York, where a quarrel with the agent of the Hudson's Bay Company gave an unwonted piquancy to the dark and weary days. They suffered much from scurvy, the prevalence of which Ellis attributes to their having got two kegs of brandy from Fort York for their Christmas merrymaking, and in a minor degree to the 'governor' not permitting the Indians to supply them with fresh provisions. On 29 May 1747 the ice broke up, and they were able to warp to the mouth of their creek; on 9 June they got down to Fort York. There they were allowed to get some provisions and stores, and on the 24th cleared the river and 'stood to the northward on the discovery'. On 1 July each of the two ships sent away her long-boat, but, owing apparently to some ill-feeling between the two captains, without any prearranged plan for working in concert. The consequence was that they separately went over the same ground, discovering, naming, and examining the several creeks and inlets on the west side of Hudson's Bay, the double examination perhaps compensating for the confusion arising from the double naming. Before the season closed in they had satisfied themselves that the only possible exit from Hudson's Bay on the west must be through the Welcome, and that very probably there was no way out except that on the east, by which they had come in. The result may not seem much; but as it served to put an end to the idea that the passage must lie through Hudson's Bay it was, at least, so much gain to accurate knowledge. After 21 August the weather broke, and they decided in council 'to bear away for England without further delay.' On the 29th they entered Hudson's Straits, passed Resolution Island on 9 September, and arrived at Yarmouth on 14 Octivwe. Ellis's share in the work of the expedition had really been very slender, but the reputation of it has been commonly assigned to him by reason of the narrative which he published the following year under the title A Voyage to Hudson's Bay, by the DobbsGalley and California in the years 1746 and 1747, for Discovering a North-West Passage (1748); a work which with many valuable observations on tides, on the vagaries of the compass, and on the customs of the Eskimos, a people then practically unknown, mingles a great deal of speculation on the certain existence of the passage, on magnetism, on fogs, on rust, and other matters, all more or less ingenious, but now known to be wildly erroneous. Such as it was, the book commended its author to the scientific workers of the day, and on 8 February 1748-9 he was elected a fellow of the Royal Society. Possibly in acknowledgment of his scientific labors, but more probably by some family interest, he was afterwards appointed successively governor of Georgia and of Nova Scotia, from which employment he retired about 1770. He seems to have spent his later years as a wanderer on the continent, was at Marseilles in 1775, and died at Naples on 21 January 1806.Condition:Some dark spot to spine else a very good copy.

        Grigri, Histoire véritable. Traduite du Japonnais en Portugais par Didaque Hadeczuca, compagnon d'un Missionnaire à Yendo; & du Portugais en François par l'Abbé de *** Aumônier d'un Vaisseau Hollandois.

      Nangazaki [Paris]: "Klnporzenkru, L'an du monde 59749" 1749. Two volumes in one, duodecimo, first title lightly stained and with an early ms attribution to 'Cahusac'; in old dark blue paper boards, red leather label. "Last edition" of this charming and rare book which had been suppressed by the authorities in Paris, and which announces itself as the 'final edition, less correct than previous versions.'De Cahusac (d. 1759) had a sustained career as a moderately successful playwright, and was a member of the Academy of science and literature in Berlin. Supposedly translated from the original Japanese ('la Litterature Japonnoise est d'ailleurs si fort ignorée en Europe... ') this is a charming tale of the island of 'Fortunée'. Although the author claims to be translating (via Portuguese) from the original Japanese, he gives himself some elbow-room with announcements about his tendency to make the original more striking and original 'd'amuser ma Nation'. Although clearly a fairy-tale, the world which this work describes is blessed with all of the attributes of the idyllic utopia: perfect weather, ease of living, rational laws. It is dedicated to the exuberant young Grigri, and follows his many adventures.Ray Howgego has recently traced the publishing history of this book. He states that the work was written in 1744, published the following year in Paris and immediately burnt by the state police. Printing shifted to "Amsterdam" (as usual) for a second 1745 edition, meaning that this was actually the third - and indeed last - of 1749 (Ray Howgego, private correspondence). Very good copy.

At 3 pm, on Friday, 26 February 1697, Maundrell and fourteen others set off on an Easter pilgrimage from Aleppo, in Turkey (where Maundrell was chaplain to the Levant Company's factory) to Jerusalem, traveling across northern Syria to Latakia, down the coast to Acre, then to Jerusalem. According to the ODNB, "The Journey was partially intended to bring up to date George Sandys's account of 1610 (Relation of a journey begun an. dom. 1610. Foure bookes. Containing a description of the Turkish empire, of Aegypt, of the Holy Land, of the remote parts of Italy and llands adioyning). In fact, Maundrell's account is quite different from that of Sandys, and is a major work in its own right, giving detailed descriptions of the life and landscapes of Syria, Lebanon, and Palestine, including the agricultural practices of the regions and places encountered, in addition to descriptions of places of religious significance. . . . Curzon, in his Visits to Monasteries in the Levant (1849), says that he 'was struck with the superiority of old Maundrell's narrative over all the others, for he tells us plainly and clearly what he saw' (Curzon, 168), and Howell, in a preface to a 1963 reprint of the Journey, says that 'it is taut, disciplined writing from which every wrinkle of ambiguity has been ironed away' (Howell, xi). Most of the nineteenth-century writers on the Holy Land, including Henry Robinson, Dean Stanley, Carl Ritter, and George Adam Smith, comment positively on Maundrell's account."

        Nouvelle méthode pour pomper le mauvais air des vaisseaux par Samuel Sutton. Avec une dissertation sur le scorbut par le docteur Mead et une suite d'expériences du docteur Desaguliers

      [1] feuillet de titre et A Paris, chez Durand, 1749, in-12, [1] feuillet de titre et XXII-225 pages, 2 pl. dépliante, basane marbrée de l'époque, dos à nerfs et fleuronné, pièce de titre grenat, tranches marbrées, Recueil de trois traités sur la santé en mer et l'assainissement de l'air à bord des navires. Premières éditions des traductions françaises des ouvrages de Sutton et de Mead, données par Lavirotte. L'édition originale anglaise du traité de Sutton, An Historical Account of a New Method.., a paru en 1745, sans la Dissertation sur le scorbut de Mead qui sera publiée quant à elle pour la première fois dans la seconde édition anglaise de 1749. Officier de la marine anglaise, Samuel Sutton (1760-1832) mit au point une pompe à air qui fut régulièrement utilisée sur les vaisseaux de marine après 1757 : l'invention rivalisait avec le ventilateur du Dr Hales, jugé trop encombrant. La méthode de Sutton préconisait l'emploi de tuyaux qui descendaient dans la cale du navire, où des feux étaient allumés pour faire circuler l'air : elle reçut l'aval de l'amiral Sir Charles Wager et du docteur Richard Mead, qui donna la préface du présent ouvrage et qui en signa l'"Exposition de la méthode inventée par M. Sutton" (p. 52 de la présente édition). Elle est représentée sur les planches gravées sur cuivre qui illustrent le recueil. De Richard Mead (1673-1754), les éditeurs ont choisi de publier un traité qui touche lui aussi au problème de la santé à bord des navires, le scorbut, occupant ici les pages 117 à 152. Mead y évoque une conversation qu'il eut avec Charles Wager : "Il revenait alors de la Mediterranée, & avoit pris à Leghorn une grande quantité de limons & d'oranges : se rappelant ce qu'il avoit oui-dire de l'efficacité de ces fruits dans la guérison de cette maladie, il ordonna qu'on en mit chaque jour une corbeille sur le Tillac. Alors les mariniers non seulement en mangoient tant qu'ils vouloient, mais encore ils en mêloient le suc avec leur bierre. Ils se divertissoient aussi ordinairement à se jetter les écorces les uns aux autres, ensorte que le Tillac étoit toujours couvert et mouillé de ce suc odoriférant. L'effet en fut si heureux, qu'il ramena ses gens en bonne santé". L'ouvrage termine par les Expériences sur la manière de renouveller l'air, de la purifier de l'échauffer & de le faire passer d'un lieu à l'autre... de Jean Théophile Desaguliers : l'auteur y donne la description de la roue centrifuge qu'il inventa en 1734. Étiquette en pied du dos. Cachet annulé de l'Institut Catholique. Étiquette ex-libris de la Bibliothèque de Liouville. Wellcome IV, p. 96 et Wellcome V, p. 213.

        Lettres sur quelques ecrits de ce tems.

      1749-1754, Genève (Paris) 1749 - 13 vol. in-12, table des matières à la fin de chaque tome à partir du 3e volume, veau marbré, dos orné à nerfs, pièces de titre et de tomaison en maroquin rouge et brun, tranches rouges (reliure de l'époque). Collection complète des 62 livraisons bimensuelles publiées entre le 8 avril 1749 et le 26 janvier 1754. Le nom de Fréron figure au titre à partir du tome VI. Collaborateurs : Abbé Joseph de La Porte, Duport, Dutertre, Déon de Beaumont, Roy, le baron Charles Frédéric Scheffer, Desormes, Daquin. Le journal de Fréron veut servir « le dieu du goût » contre les Philosophes affichant une ambition encyclopédique et un goût pour l'histoire, les sciences et les problèmes de la vie courante. « C'est précisément en 1752 que Fréron va trouver le clan qui le protégera : celui de Stanislas de Pologne, de la Reine, du Dauphin. Désormais, Fréron s'efforcera de ménager Voltaire (lequel, du reste, intervient pour que les feuilles reparaissent) pour concentrer ses attaques sur les Philosophes qui commencent à s'organiser en un parti dangereux. Il exploitera donc à merveille l'affaire des Bouffons pour en faire une campagne de presse contre cette cabale d'étrangers menée par Grimm et Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Les Lettres sur quelques écrits se gardent pourtant de tout cléricalisme. Ce qui compte, en effet, pour leur directeur, c'est la vie intellectuelle et artistique de son temps. Formé par les grands maîtres, ouvert sur le monde, il se présente comme un homme d'ordre et un esthète bourgeois. C'est pourquoi il est le premier à prôner le grand sérieux au théâtre. Et il ne s'en prend guère à l'Encyclopédie puisqu'il aspire au même but. D'où maints articles sur les voyages et l'histoire, les sciences et les arts, les découvertes et les curiosités du jour. Cet ensemble de Lettres dirigé par un voltairien qui déteste Voltaire est, du point de vue chronologique, esthétique et politique, la nécessaire introduction à L'Année littéraire. » (Jean Balcou).

Nonostante le carenze citate, bella copia, molto elegante. Si trova raramente copie in due volumi, che sono per lo più collegati uno. e libro emblematico del faro secolo XVIII, Lo spirito delle leggi, vale a dire i principi e le tendenze con cui le bollette diventano legge, avrà un'influenza decisiva sulla vita politica, e sarà una guida per la stesura della costituzione del 1791 e quello degli Stati Uniti. La tesi generale di Montesquieu (1689- 1755) è che le leggi non sono solo una creazione di uomini - Lo spirito della legge è "le varie relazioni di leggi con cose diverse" - ma che le cause la forma sono molteplici; Quindi ci cause fisiche (clima), cause morali (la religione, costumi ...) la giustizia più primitivo è la fonte della legislazione; Quindi non vi è infatti uno spirito di leggi. Ma il libro non è solo un trattato dello spirito della legge, è soprattutto un trattato di governi e in particolare, la libertà. Anche se il libro è stato molto letto, è stato accolto con una certa freddezza (da filosofi, che non si riconoscono in Montesquieu uno di loro e mal sopportavano il suo conservatorismo) e molti critici (dalla Chiesa). - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition, rare, après l'originale d'une rareté insigne parue en 1748. Il s'agit d'une des deux éditions parues en 1749 chez Barrillot, celle-ci en deux volumes et contenant pour la première fois une grande carte dépliante. C'est cette édition qui est référencée par Brunet. Reliures en plein veau marbré et glacé d'époque. Dos à nerfs ornés. Pièces de titre et de tomaison en maroquin beige. Manque en tête du tome I. Coiffe de tête du tome II élimée, avec manque aux mors. 5 trous de vers sur le dos du tome II. Epidermure le long du mors du tome I avec léger manque à la tomaison. Une autre épidermure au premier caisson du tome I. 3 coins émoussés et dénudés. Une trace légère de mouillure au coin droit en marge, dernier tiers du livre du tome II. Frottements. Malgré les défauts mentionnés, agréable exemplaire, assez élégant. On ne trouve que rarement des exemplaires en deux volumes, ils sont la plupart du temps reliés en un.  Livre emblématique et phare du XVIIIe siècle, L'esprit des lois, c'est à dire les principes et les tendances par lesquels se font les lois, aura une influence déterminante sur la vie politique, et sera un guide pour la rédaction de la constitution de 1791 et de celle des États-Unis. La thèse générale de Montesquieu (1689- 1755), c'est que les lois ne sont pas seulement une création des hommes - L'esprit des lois c'est »les divers rapports des lois avec diverses choses» - mais que les causes qui les forment sont multiples ; il y a donc des causes physiques (le climat), des causes morales (religion, moeurs...) ; de plus une justice primitive est à l'origine des lois ; il y a donc bien un esprit des lois. Mais le livre n'est pas seulement un traité de l'esprit qui anime les lois, c'est avant tout un traité des gouvernements et surtout, de la liberté. Bien que le livre fût beaucoup lu, il fut accueillit avec une certaine froideur (par les philosophes, qui ne reconnaissaient pas en Montesquieu un des leurs et lui reprochaient son conservatisme) et beaucoup de critiques (de la part des ecclésiastiques).  Ex libris gravé du XIXe Octave Chavaillon : Conscience est la ruine.

        of the Nuremberg classical scholar Nikolaus Weber, with 51 entries by scholars, scientists, and artists of the time, including Andreas Celsius, Johann Gabriel Doppelmayr, and Christoph Jacob Trew.

      Nuremberg and Altdorf, 1717-1749. - Oblong 8vo. 179 ff. with 51 entries and Weber's autogr. note of ownership on fol. 2r. Contemp. brown calf with richly gilt spine and covers. Brocade endpapers. All edges gilt. Unique scholars' album of the philologist Nikolaus Weber (1699-1751), headmaster of the Nuremberg Holy Ghost school, with entries by scholars mainly based at the Universities of Nuremberg and Altdorf. One of the most important among the contributors to this volume, almost all of which are biographically recorded, is the Swedish astronomer Andreas Celsius (1701-44), who on 22 July 1733 penned these lines: "Problema: Unam eandemq[ue] theologiam et religionem per universum terrarum orbem propagare. - Resolutio: Doceatur ubiq[ue] gentium Philosophia certa et solida" (Problem: How to spread the same theology and religion throughout the entire world? - Solution: Teach all peoples a certain and solid philosophy). On behalf of the Swedish king, Celsius had visited the principal observatories of Europe in 1732/33 to form an opinion of the current developments in astronomy. His scientific "Grand Tour" had also led him to Nuremberg, where he had spent three months at the home of the astronomer Johann Gabriel Doppelmayr (see below) and had regularly participated in the specialist discussions hosted by the physician Christoph Jacob Trew (see below). 1733 is also the year of Celsius's "316 Observationes de Lumine Boreali", the first comprehensive treatise on the Northern Lights, published by Endter in Nuremberg. That year, Celsius also performed the first exact geographical measurement of the town's dimensions. - Celsius's host Johann Gabriel Doppelmayr (1677-1750), known for his 1750 "Atlas coelestis", contributed his entry many years before Celsius: on 17 July 1717, he dedicated a quotation from Seneca ("Animum sursum vocant initia sua", Epist. 79). The two opposite pages by Celsius and Doppelmayr are connected by a caption (by one of the two scientists): "Sic pagina jungit amicos" (Thus a page links friends). - Another important entry is that of the physician and botanist Christoph Jakob Trew (1695-1769), who had studied medicine in Altdorf and then undertook a three-year tour through Germany, Switzerland, France, and the Netherlands. In 1720 he settled in Nuremberg as a general practicioner and became a member of the most important scientific academies; his library, encompassing more than 34,000 volumes, was considered the greatest collection of naturalist literature of its time. No less important was Trew's autograph and correspondence collection with its natural-scientific focus, containing more than 19,000 letters by polymaths from the early Renaissance to Enlightenment (including Albrecht von Haller, Conrad Gesner, and Lorenz Heister). Today, Trew is frequently associated with his principal botanical work, "Plantae selectae" (1750-73). - For many entries, Weber later added the date of the contributor's death (if he outlived them), which in several cases offers a more precise date than hitherto available. - Other contributors include Siegmund Jakob Apin (writer, pedagogue, and classical scholar, 1693-1732), Andreas Christian Eschenbach (theologian and classical scholar, 1663-1722), Johann Wilhelm Feuerlein (theologian, 1689-1766), Christoph Fürer von Haimendorf (poet, 1663-1732), Gottfried Engelhart Geiger (pedagogue, 1681-1748), Johann Jakob Hartmann (theologian, 1671-1728), Georg Jeremias Hofmann (teacher of oriental languages and theologian, 1670-1732), Johann David Köhler (historian, 1684-1755), Michael Friedrich Lochner von Hummelstein (physician and polymath, 1662-1720), Bernhard Walther Marperger (theologian and Lutheran poet, 1682-1746), Jonas Meldercreutz (mathematician and bibliophile, 1713-85), Gustav Philipp Mörl (theologian and librarian, 1673-1750), Johann Heinrich Müller (physicist, astronomer, and mathematician, 1671-1731), Joachim Negelein (theologian and classical scholar, 1675-1749), Johann Heinrich Schulze (physician and classical scholar, 1 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Each zone is appropriately colored along the spectrum of a muted rainbow in correspondence with five climate zones: tropical, dry, temperate, continental, and polar. The ocean is also divided into zones, but they are left white, such that the meandering lines of their boundaries complement the patterning created by the color. In addition, the map provides more specific information through a letter-based labeling system, printed at the bottom in both German and English, that contributes to the scientific air of the map by recalling the aesthetics of the Periodic Table of Elements. These colors and codes reappear in a series of charts showing the average temperature and precipitation of well-known cities which give the viewer, most likely a student, a more concrete sense of what common code combinations mean in practice.<BR><BR>The map is in good condition with some cracking and image loss around the title. Slight discoloration along the top of the map is visually offset by the brighter colors that occupy the map's center.<BR><BR>The publishing firm of Justus Perthes (1749-1816) was first established in 1785 and continued producing maps up through the beginning of the 21st century. Originally known for almanacs and yearbooks, the firm was nationalized by the German Democratic Republic in the 1950s and channeled its informational bent into the production of school atlases and wall maps. This map nicely conveys the rigor of their research and production.

Binding is leather, Spine is very good, clear embossed title to spine, rear is very good, lacks front cover. Contents very good, clean & tight copy, a few pages trimmed too much by the printer, only noticed a couple of minor tears, and couple of corner tip folds, and a few minor marks. Main title page is Aristotle's Compleat Master Piece &#150; To which is added A Treasure of Health; in Three Parts; Therefore 1st is Displaying the Secrets, 2nd Aristotle's Compleat and Experienc'd Midwife, 3rd Aristotle's Book of Problems, with Other Astronomers, Astrologers, Physicians, and Philosophers. 4th Aristotle's Last Legacy, Unfolding the Mysteries of Nature in the Generation of Man.

Apparently banned in England, believed to be by William Salmon who used Aristotle's name to remain anonymous. Early copies like this copy are now very scarce, As the binding looks original, if it had the front cover it would be priced a lot more, as contents seem to be in as good or better condition than the few other 1749 editions on sale.
