        Torah, nevi'im u-khetuvim Biblia hebraica sine punctis Accurante Nath Forster

      Oxonii: E Typographeo Clarendoniano 4to (24 cm; 9.5"). 2 vols. in 1. I: [4], 126, [1], 110 ff. II: [1], 116, [1], 142 ff.. 1750 Late as the date may seem for it, this is the first separate edition of the Hebrew Bible printed in England, preceded only by the printing of the text as part of the Walton Polyglot. Editor Nathaniel Forster (1718–57), an accomplished scholar of Greek, Latin, and Hebrew, has included (in the style of the table of contents) "Pentateuchus, Prophetae priores, Prophetae posteriores, Hagiographa"; the leaves following "Prophetae posteriores" are separately signed and printed "Vol. 2." Based on Van der Hoogh's version, the text is in Hebrew, with titles and chapter heads also in Latin. There were two issues of this, a large paper issue and the common paper issue, of which this is one of the latter. Unlike most 18th-century books printed at Oxford, this is scarce. ESTC locates only seven U.S. holding libraries (one of which has deaccessioned its copy) and WorldCat locates three additional library copies (one of which has also been deaccessioned). Of the eight reported copies still actually in libraries four are in the Northeast, two in California, one at Duke, and one in Ohio. Provenance: The Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released). Full modern brown morocco plain style, round spine, raised bands, gilt ruling above and below each band . A few sequential lower margins with a spill stain, a bit of foxing and instances of the lightest possible old waterstaining at rear. Two library stamps (one on title, one in a blank area of an interior leaf), as above. => A very clean, crisp copy.

Text mit 12-zeiliger eleganter Nasta'liq Schrift in schwarzer Tinte. Blatt in mehrfachem Goldrahmen mit dazwischen liegender floraler Verzierung, Eckverzierungen und Textanfänge in floralverzierter Kartusche auf goldenem Grund.

There are twelve lines to the page written in two columns of elegant Nasta’liq script in black ink, inter columnar rules decorated with floral motifs, corner pieces and outer margins decorated with floral sprays and motifs in colors and gold throughout, inner margins ruled in colors and gold. The double leaf measures: 275 x 212 mm. - - - The Persian mystic poet Moulana Noor-od-Din (Nuruddin) Abdorrahman Jami was born in Jam, a small town of Khorasan in 1414 CE. His poetic name is Jami, the word Jam means "wine goblet" in Persian and Nuruddin means "Light of Faith." He was born in a village near Jam, but a few years after his birth, his family migrated to the cultural city of Herat where he spent most of his life. He did travel extensively, most significantly to Samarqand, where he completed his studies. He was a famous Sufi, and a follower of the Naqshbandiyyah Sufi Order. At the end of his life (1492 CE) he was living in Herat. The Baharestan, or Land of Spring, is Jami's best-known work. It is a compendium of fables and short stories, in the tradition of the Golestan of Sa'di.

        Histoire Naturelle des Oiseaux, ornée de 306 Estampes, qui les représentent parfaitement au Natural. et augmentée de notes & de remarques curieuses, par W.Derham.

      - La Haye, Pierre de Hondt, 1750. 3 volumes. 4to (293 x 235mm). With 306 fine engraved plates. Contemporary calf, richly gilt decorated spines in 6 compartments with red gilt lettered label, gilt edges (very slightly rubbed). An attractive uniformly bound copy of the rare French edition, the first English one was published in 1731-1738. Eleazer Albin is one of the obscure 18th century natural history illustrators, and apart from being a teacher of drawing and watercolour hardly anything is known of him. Besides the above work he published a splendid work on the 'Natural history of Insects' and an attractive work on spiders. The plates of the above offered work were drawn by the author."Albin. was one of the first artists to set each bird on a branch or other suitable perch, sometimes with the typical food of each species as well. The importance of his books . lies in the fact that some of his illustrations and descriptions are the first of those particular species to appear and thus serve as 'type specimens'. Albin did not work alone. He shared the task of drawing, engraving and colouring the plates with his daughter, Elisabeth (c. 1708-41). She has the distinction of being the first woman known to have worked as an illustrator of bird books, signing forty-one of the plates as having been her work alone. Her style, too, was distinctive, softer and more delicate than her father's, and she was evidently more painstaking, painting with lighter, shorter strokes of the brush" (J. Elphick, Birds, the art of ornithology pp. 32-33). There are 2 issues of the work one with the plates coloured and one with plain plates as the present copy.Provenance: Signature of Palisot-Beauvois on title. Baron Marie François Joseph Palisot de Beauvois (1752-1820) was a French laywer and botanist.Anker 6; Nissen IVB, 16. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [Pineapple. "The Pine Apple. Ananas cosmosus"]

      [London], 1750. Copper engraving, coloured by hand, by and after Ehret. Very good condition apart from discreet blindstamp to lower right corner of plate. A very fine image from Griffith Hughes' "The Natural History of Barbados", drawn by the greatest of eighteenth-century botanical artists, George Dionysius Ehret. "If the general, or at least if the judgement of the most numerous part of mankind, who have tasted of this fruit, may be relied upon, it deserves the preference of all other fruits; the agreeable variety, and the delicate quick poignancy of it juice is justly esteemed to excel every other" (Griffith Hughes The Natural History of Barbados, London, 1750, p.226). The book was illustrated with 30 plates (12 of which are signed by Ehret). Hunt praises the work: "This book is one to place beside Catesby's Natural History" and it is often seen as a companion to Sloane's Jamaica. Ehret, a brilliant botanical artist, was unrivalled in his ability to "achieve realism, majesty, ineffable colour, all in one breathtaking look." (Hunt). Born in Heidelberg in 1710, he originally worked as a gardener and practised drawing in his spare time. Ehret moved to London in the late 1730s, where he painted the recently introduced exotics at the Chelsea Physic Garden and established himself as a teacher of flower-painting and botany. Cf. Gerta Calman Georg Ehret, Flower painter Extraordinary (1977) p.67; cf. Great Flower Books (1990) p.104; cf. Hunt 536; cf. Nissen BBI 950; cf. Sabin 33582; cf. Wood p.393.

        Magnæ Britanniæ Tabula; Comprehendens Angliæ, Scotiæ, ac Hiberniæ Regna, in omnes suascujusque Provincias peraccuraté et distincté divisa

      Amsterdam: Peter Schenck, 1750. Engraved with full, period colour. Mild soiling in margins, several small tears and losses at edges. A handsome map of Great Britain celebrating the ascendancy of William III. A highly detailed map of Great Britain that commemorates in elaborate, Baroque cartouches the Glorious Revolution of 1688 that brought William of Orange to the British throne. Beneath a portrait of William, who is attended by a trumpet blowing cherub and a personification of Roman militancy, is a depiction of Hercules killing the nine-headed hydra next to the coat of arms of Great Britain. On the other side of the map is a jubilant band of cherubs with the crowns and coats of arms of Ireland, Scotland, and England. The map was made by Nicolaes Visscher II of Amsterdam, who was understandably pro-William. Nicolaes died in 1702, and his widow continued publishing the maps until 1726 after which the Schenck family obtained the plate. Koeman, Vis 12.

      Pp. (viii), 376, (16). With 12 engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, spine with five raised bands, richly gilt and with title label, somewhat rubbed and top of spine chipped. Copy of Ericsberg castle, Sweden. First edition. Narratives of two Swedish East India Company voyages to China in 1750-52. Pehr Osbeck (1723-1805) served as a preacher on a Swedish East India voyage to Canton. The expedition sailed by way of Spain, the Canary Islands, the Cape of Good Hope and Java. Osbeck's stay in Canton lasted for more than four months before the voyage returned via Java, Sumatra, the Cape and Ascension Island. His account includes detailed and accurate information about plants, fish, insects, birds and other animals along the route but also much information about the people in China and their manners, language, food, religion, agriculture, commerce, etc. A large collection of newly discovered plants in China and Java was brought back and given to Linné. The second work is Torén's narrative of his East India voyage via Surat to China which was published posthumously by Linné. It's a valuable and accurate work mainly devoted to natural history.

        L'art du Théâtre, a Madame ***.

      Paris, chez C.F. Simon et Giffart, 1750, - in-8, pp. (8), 102, (2), leg. del tempo p. pelle marmorizz., tit. e fregi oro al dorso (con piccola mancanza), tagli rossi. Prima edizione di questa rara opera del Riccoboni (Antoine-François-Valentin, figlio di Luigi, detto ''Lelio Fils'', nato a Mantova nel 1707 e morto a Parigi nel 1772). In essa l'autore ''intese dare forma pratica alle teorie formulate da suo padre. Pur predicando come lui il culto della naturalezza, A.-F. definiva i limiti della sincerità e della sensibilità dell'attore, il quale non può esprimersi con efficacia se non nell'assoluta padronanza dei propri mezzi. La controversia avviata su questo problema tra Lelio padre e Lelio figlio diede origine al dibattito immortalato da Diderot col ''Paradoxe sur le comédien'' (Encicl. Spettacolo VIII, 943-4). L'opera fu tradotta in italiano ed apparve a Venezia nel 1762. In fine è allegata l'opera anonima ''Varietés amusantes et instructives'', Paris, J. Clousier, 1749. Bell'esempl. De Courville n. 652.

        The Natural History of Barbados.

      London: Printed for the author; and sold by most booksellers in Great Britain and Ireland,, 1750. Folio (340 x 215 mm). Recent half calf, old marbled paper sides, red speckled edges. Folding engraved map by Thomas Jefferys, 30 engraved plates of flora and fauna by Mynde or G. Bickham after G. D. Ehret and others, 10 engraved headpieces (5 views of Bridgetown, each the same, and 5 engraved floral swags), wood-engraved head- and tailpieces and initials. Short closed-tear to map at stub, general foxing and toning, each plate with the name of the specimen depicted noted in a neat contemporary hand (outside the platemark). A good complete copy. First edition of this important and attractive early work on the natural history of Barbados, by the Welsh-born clergyman and naturalist Griffith Hughes (1707-1758?). "In Barbados, Hughes developed the idea of publishing a book on the island's natural history. In 1743 he visited London with the intention of promoting this work and ingratiated himself with the leading scientists of the day, men such as Sir Hans Sloane and Martin Folkes. Before returning home, he had arranged for the leading artist George Dionysius Ehret to prepare plates for his book. Because his plan was both interesting and ambitious, on Hughes's return to England in 1748 he was elected a fellow of the Royal Society as well as receiving his BA and MA degrees from his old college. The Natural History of Barbados, a lavish production in folio... appeared in the spring of 1750" (ODNB). Hughes had also done an impressive job of drumming-up prestigious subscribers: the list is headed by the Prince and Princess of Wales and the Duke of Cumberland. Although at the time the book was criticised for various inaccuracies Hughes did record two notable firsts: the first description of a grapefruit, which he called "the Forbidden Fruit", and the first coining in print of the phrase "yellow fever" (p. 37).

        De L'Esprit des Loix. Nouvelle Edition fait sur les Corrections de l'Auteur. [Bound with:] Défense de L'Esprit des Loix

      Barrillot & Fils, n.d. [1750]. & Geneva: Barrillot & Fils, 1750, Geneva - Two volumes. Pp. xxviii, 463, [1]; [2], xviii, 510, 64. With half-titles, woodcut printer's devices. Lacking blank [Ii8] between final leaf of text and the "Défense". Contemporary calf, recently rebacked with gilt fleur-de-lys tools within gilt-ruled compartments between raised bands, gilt labels. Covers rubbed and a little worn at extremities, light toning to leaves, but on the whole an exceptionally clean, fresh set internally, in handsomely restored bindings. Within a year or two of its anonymous publication in Geneva in 1748, Montesquieu's masterpiece on political liberty had achieved such popularity that he was able to write, "Il y a vingt-deux éditions de mon ouvrage répandeus dans toutes l'Europe." (Gébelin, p.22). The book generated enormous controversy and its author was accused of atheism in the pages of the influential Jensenist periodical "Nouvelles Ecclésiastiques". In spite of his "Défense", published in 1750, Montesquieu's work was placed on the Index in 1751. Montesquieu died soon after, but the principles he advocated in his writings, the ideas of freedom and toleration and the natural rights of the individual went on to inspire the French and American Revolutions and provide the philosophical underpinnings of the American Constitution. The bibliographical study of the many early editions of "L'Esprit des Loix" is complicated by the abundance of piracies, many with fictitious places of publication, eg. Geneva [but Paris], Leyden [but Lyon], some even fabricated by the original publisher, Barrillot himself, eg. Amsterdam [but Geneva]. Although no copies of the work exist bearing the date of 1748, the first edition is known to have been printed at that date by Barrillot & Fils in Geneva, in 2 volumes, 4to. It contained 14 cancels, with Barrillot spelled with two r's. The first undated Paris piracy, which contains no cancels, and Barrillot with one r, appeared later in the same year. The misspelling of Barrillot was continued in some of the later Paris piracies. The present undated edition was published by Barrillot (2 r's) & Fils in Geneva, most probably in 1750. It was likely the first edition to include Montesquieu's "Défense", which was first published separately in 12mo by Barrillot & Fils in 1750. Gébelin, F. La Publication de L'Esprit des Lois.

        A North View of Denbigh Castle in North Wales

      London: Published by John Boydell engraver at the Globe near Durham Yard in the Strand, 1750. Engraving. In excellent condition. Framed in a beautiful gold-leaf frame with a gold wash-line mount. Image size: 11 1/4 x 17 1/4 inches. A handsome view of a fox hunt with Denbigh Castle in North Wales pictured in the background. Towards the middle of the eighteenth century a trend developed amongst English artists and printmakers, which sought to visually record the natural beauties of England and Wales. Sparked by a sense of national confidence and patriotism, English printmakers began to publish topographical prints of the important sights in the British Isles. In addition to being a visual record of the countryside, they were meant to encourage public recognition of the beauty and history of England. They were aimed at English and foreign tourists who desired a memento of their travels, or at those vicarious tourists who collected topographical prints instead of traveling. John Boydell made a name for himself by joining this nationalistic trend and publishing a long series of topographical engravings. This fine view of Denbigh Castle in Northern Wales is one of the earliest examples of Boydell's work, when he was known more as an engraver than a publisher and printseller. John Boydell is one of the most influential figures in the history of English printmaking. He was not only an accomplished engraver, and an industrious publisher, but as a printseller he came to dominate the English print trade. He is best known as the originator of the Shakespeare Gallery , which made him one of the most successful print-sellers of his time. Clayton, The English Print 1688-1802 p. 115-116 & 155.
