        Nova mappa Maris Nigri et Freti Costantino Politani...

      1750. Incisione in rame, splendida coloritura originale d'epoca, mm. 500x585. La parte superiore destra, entro riquadro, è un ingrandimento della zona del Bosforo. Seutter, dopo un apprendistato presso Homann a Norimberga, trasferitosi ad Augsburg verso il 1720, aprì la propria attività superando esteticamente il maestro: le sue carte hanno sempre colori brillanti e cartigli elaborati. La sua attività fu rilevata da Lotter. Esemplare molto bello su carta forte con buoni margini che presenta qualche traccia d'umido sui margini senza intaccare la parte incisa.

        Lucina sine concubitu. Lettre adressée à la Societé royale de Londres, dans laquelle on prouve, par une évidence incontestable, tirée de la raison & de la pratique, qu'une femme peut concevoir, sans avoir de commerce avec aucun homme. Traduit sur la quatriéme edition angloise, avec un commentaire trés curieux, qui ne s'est pas encore trouvé dans les editions précedentes d'Abraham Johnson.

      1750 - A Londres MDCCL. (Germany?), 1750. 8:o. (16),72 pp. Text within a printed frame. Fine contemporary half calf with raised bands, nice black-stamped decor on spine, nicely decorated endpapers, red sprinkled edges. MS numbering label in top compartment. Head of spine slightly chipped. Small stain in outer margin on pp. 3-16, probably caused by candle wax. Occasional minor spotting, for example on pp. 61-64. A nice and charming copy.ESTC T120326: "The imprint is false; possibly printed in Germany". Several editions with somewhat diverging titles, some without imprint, were published the same year. There are several later reprints and a number of translations. Bibliotheca Walleriana 4470 for the first Swedish edition from 1819, translated from C. F. X. Mercier's French adaptation from 1799. The author, the Englishman John Hill (1714-75), had, among other things, received the Swedish Order of Vasa and flaunted a degree in medicine from the University of St. Andrews. He published a number of pamphlets with hilarious content, and, after having failed to become a member of Royal Society, he wrote "Lucina sine concubitu", which can be loosely translated as "Pregancy witout intercourse". In this text, Hill claims that women can become pregnant without engaging in any kind of sexual activity. According to Hill, microscopic "animalcula" were present in the air, which at any time could find their way into a womans body and make her pregnant. These "animalcula" could be studied under microscope and already at this early stage of development they bore the shapes of men or women. Referring to his discovery, Hill thought it possible to rehabilitate the honour of the many women throughout history who had been unable to explain their pregancy.

Chanson populaire du milieu du XVIIIe siècle sur les miracles accomplis par le Saint, dont la fameuse légende sur les trois enfants mis au saloir par un boucher et ressuscités sept ans plus tard par Saint Nicolas. Selon certaines traditions, le père Fouettard qui accompagne Saint Nicolas serait en fait le boucher de l'histoire. Pour lui faire regretter son méfait, ce dernier l'aurait condamné à l'accompagner lors de sa distribution de récompenses, en lui assignant la tâche de punir les enfants désobéissants. Le timbre ?Retournez aux Marets? indiqué dans l?image populaire est probablement l??Air du Marais? publié par Jean-Baptiste Ballard en 1717 dans le tome I de ?La clef des chansonniers?.Please notify before visiting to see a book.
