        Royaume D'Irlande

      Paris: , [1750] 1757. divise en ses quatre Provinces, et sub divise en Comtes... Size: 510 × 660 mm. Copperplate engraving with original outline colour. Minor age toning and some slight spotting. Top margin slim, otherwise in good condition. A very precise and detailed map of Ireland by Le Sieur Robert (de Vaugondy). Much of stock of the De Vaugondy's came from Nicolas Sanson, (from whom they were decended) which was eventually combined with maps and plates acquired, after the death of Jaillot in the early years of the eighteenth century, was used to produce the beautiful Atlas Universal - from which this map is taken.

        A Naval Expositor,

      London: printed by E. Owen, and engraved by Paul Fourdrinier,, 1750. Shewing and Explaining the Words and Terms of Art belonging to the Parts, Qualities, and Proportions of Building, Rigging, Furnishing, Fitting a Ship for Sea. Names of each particular Part of a new Ship, as they are put together (in a progressive Manner) for Frameing and Finishing the Structure Building on the Stocks. Quarto (273 × 210 mm) contemporary calf, rebacked with new red morocco label, edges sprinkled red. Fully-engraved title within elaborate rococo border, letterpress printed text and each page with engraved terms and illustrations in outer margin, in all more than 300 marginal engravings, and 3 larger engravings in the text. With list of subscribers and dedication leaf. Boards a little worn, front hinge re-enforced with linen, occasional leaf spotted, overall a very good copy. First edition of this beautifully produced dictionary of naval terminology, giving a wonderful insight into the technicalities of eighteenth-century seamanship. The terms to be defined are themselves engraved, in many cases accompanied by an intricately engraved thumbnail sketch of the item in question. A more thorough explanation is provided in letterpress. Blanckley gives details of the whole gamut of naval terminology, not just parts and types of ships and boats, their construction, rigging, and outfitting, but also maintenance tools, provisions, and naval terms and commands. A table at the beginning outlines the order in which the different sections and parts of a new ship are put together, together with references as to where these parts and materials are explained in the dictionary. "Regarded by Röding as the best English book of its kind before Falconer, 1769." (Craig), Blanckley is one of the most visually attractive books in the field; truly a superb dictionary and an accomplished piece of bookmaking. The four-page list of subscribers provides a veritable roll call of England's naval notables of the time, and the detailed engravings by Paul Fourdrinier (d.1758) are particularly splendid; the French engraver had been a pupil of Bernard Picart in Amsterdam before setting up a workshop in London in 1720, where he concentrated on engraving portraits and book illustrations, particularly for architectural works. Inscription of of W. H. M. Daniell to the front pastedown recording the gift of the book from Howard Marquand "Taunton about 1890". Daniell rose to the rank of commander RN and was serving on board the Camperdown at the time of her disastrous collision with HMS Victoria off Tripoli in 1893. Later armorial bookplate of John Gretton beneath.

        A New Law-Dictionary...The Sixth Edition. London, 1750

      1750. Jacob, Giles [1686-1744]. [Holt, Sir John (1642-1710)]. A New Law-Dictionary: Containing, The Interpretation and Definition of Words and Terms used in the Law; and Also the Whole Law, and the Practice Thereof, Under All the Heads and Titles of the Same. Together With Such Informations Relating Thereto, as Explain the History and Antiquity of the Law, and Our Manners, Customs, and Original Government. Collected and Abstracted From All Dictionaries, Abridgments, Institutes, Reports, Year-Books, Charters, Registers, Chronicles, and Histories, Published to This Time. And Fitted for the Use of Barristers, Students, and Practisers of the Law, Members of Parliament, and Other Gentlemen, Justices of the Peaces, Clergymen, &c. The Law-Proceedings Being Done Into English, with Great Additions and Improvements to this Time. To Which is Annexed, a Table of References to All the Arguments and Resolutions of the Lord Chief Justice Holt; in the Several Volumes of the Reports. London: Printed by Henry Lintot, 1750. Unpaginated. Printed in double columns. Folio (14" x 9"). Contemporary calf, raised bands, blind-stamped fillets to boards, later lettering piece. Wear to edges and corners, scuffs to boards and backstrip, chipping to spine ends, boards partially detached but secure. Early owner inscription to front free endpaper, another to title page, interior otherwise clean and fresh. * Sixth edition. According to Cowley, the New Law-Dictionary (First edition, 1729) was both Jacob's masterpiece and "an entirely new departure in legal literature" that provided a model for several subsequent efforts. In contrast to earlier works, each entry summarizes all of the laws relating to the subject and offers extensive interpretive commentary. Jacob was also careful to omit obsolete terms. It was recognized almost immediately that Jacob had created a highly useful legal encyclopedia that was both more detailed and concise than any other abridgment of the period. An extremely popular work that went through twelve editions by 1800, it offers unparalleled insights into Anglo-American law during the eighteenth century.

        Introduction a l'Analyse des Lignes Courbes Algébriques

      Geneve: Freres Cramer & Cl. Philbert, 1750. First edition of this major treatise on analytic geometry, containing Cramer&#146;s rule and paradox, &#147;the most complete exposition of algebraic curves existing at that time&#148; (Struik), and &#147;a worthy successor to Newton&#146;s Enumeratio.&#148; (Boyer). According to Cantor, this together with Euler&#146;s Introductio, forms the first actual text-book on algebraic curves, and it &#147;contains the earliest demonstration that a curve of the n<sup>th</sup> degree is in general determined if ½n(n+3) points on it be given.&#148; (Ball).<br/><br/>& Honeyman 775; Sotheran&#146;s Catalogue 770, 1917 (&#145;very rare&#146;). <br/><br/>& (DSB:) &#147;Cramer&#146;s major publication <i>Introduction à l&#146;analyse lignes courbes algébriques</i>, was published in 1750 &#133; The first chapter of the Introduction defines regular, irregular, transcendental, mechanical, and irrational curves and discusses some techniques of graphing, including our present convention for the positive directions on coordinate axes. The second chapter deals with transformations of curves, especially those which simplify their equations, and the third chapter develops a classification of algebraic curves by order or degree, abandoning Descartes&#146;s classification by genera. Both Cramer&#146;s rule and Cramer&#146;s paradox develop out of this chapter. The remaining ten chapters include discussions of the graphical solution of equations, diameters, branch points and singular points, tangents, points of inflection, maxima, minima, and curvature. Cramer claims that he gives no example without a reason, and no rule without an example. <br/><br/>& &#147;The third chapter of Cramer&#146;s Introduction uses a triangular arrangement of the terms of complete equations of successively higher degree as the basis for deriving the formula <i>v<sup>2</sup>/2 + 3v/2</i> for the number of arbitrary constants in the general equation of the <i>v</i>th degree. This is the sum of <i>v</i> terms of the arithmetic progression 2 + 3 + 4 +&#133; derived from the rows of the triangle by regarding one coefficient, say <i>a</i>, as reduced to unity by division. From this he concludes that a curve of order <i>v</i> can be made to pass through <i>v<sup>2</sup>/2 + 3v/2</i> points, a statement that he says needs only an example for a demonstration. In his example Cramer writes five linear equations in five unknowns by substituting the coordinates of five points into the general second-degree equation. He then states that he has found a general and convenient rule for the solution of a set of <i>v</i> linear equations in <i>v</i> unknowns; but since this is algebra, he has put it into appendix 1. &#133; The use of raised numerals as indices, not exponents, applied to coefficients represented by capital letters enabled Cramer to state his rule in general terms and to define the signs of the products in terms of the number of inversions of these indices when the factors are arranged in alphabetical order. &#133;& &#147;Cramer&#146;s paradox was the outgrowth of combining the formula <i>v<sup>2</sup>/2 + 3v/2</i> with the theorem, which Cramer attributes to Maclaurin, that <i>m</i>th- and <i>n</i>th- order curves intersect in <i>mn</i> points. The formula says, for example, that a cubic curve is uniquely determined by nine points; the theorem says that two different cubic curves would intersect in nine points.&#148;<br/><br/>& DSB III, p.460; Struik, A Source Book in Mathematics 1200-1800, pp.180-81; Boyer, History of Analytic Geometry, pp.194-96; Ball, A Short Account of the History of Mathematics, pp. 371-72; Coolidge, History of Geometrical Methods, pp.132-33; Cajori, A History of Mathematics, p.241.& 4to: 234 x 190 mm.

      Aquarellierte Federzeichnung um 1750. 35.8x46 cm. - Der Plan zeigt Potsdam als Grundriss mit Sanssouci, Orangerie, Tiergarten, Brandenburger Stadttor und Vorstadt; Nedlitz mit Fähre und der Havel, Bornstedt, Bornim, Eiche, Schloss Lindstedt, Grube und Marquardt mit der irrtümlich als Gublitz bezeichneten Wublitz. Eingezeichnet ist die Marschroute des am Manöver beteiligten Regiment Münchow der Potsdamer Garnison zum Ort des Manövers an der Wublitz zwischen Grube und Marquardt, sowie die Truppenaufstellungen der Übung: Übergang über einen Fluss mittels einer Pontonbrücke, die durch Batterien auf einer Anhöhe geschützt wird.

Oben links ausführliche Legende "Renvoi" A - Q zum dargestellten Manöver. Friedrich der Große ließ ab 1746 Manöver zur Schulung, Ausbildung und Vorbereitung der Soldaten und Befehlshaber auf Kriegszeiten durchführen, sie wurden zur Erprobung neuer Taktiken und zur Koordination zwischen größeren Truppenverbänden und verschiedenen Waffengattungen genutzt. Während seiner Regierungszeit unterlagen militärische Dinge der strengsten Geheimhaltung, so wurden kaum militärische Karten oder wie vorliegend Manöverpläne gedruckt, sondern durch Handzeichnungen dokumentiert und dadurch nur einem kleinen Personenkreis zugänglich gemacht. Eine Verbreitung in der Öffentlichkeit und Kenntnisnahme militärischer Information durch andere Mächte wurde so verhindert.Sauber und sorgfältig gearbeitetes Blatt in ansprechenen Farben auf kräftigem Zeichenpapier. Die Darstellung ist von einem schwarzen Tuschrand umgeben. Die geographischen Bezeichnungen und die Legende sind kalligraphisch schön in schwarzer Tinte ausgeführt.

        MEMENTO MORI

      1750. * DBI s.v. Albani; G. Cucco, ed., Papa Albani e le arti a Urbino e a Roma, 1700-1721 (2001).. Highly finished preparatory design for a fresco or tapestry connected to the Albani family, whose coat of arms appears under the left-hand arch crowned with a cardinal?s hat. Under the central arch of the drawing, preceded by a palafreniero, four servants in blue and white livery carry a red baldacchino that covers two figures processing on horseback. One is clearly a secular prince, with his garland crown and red cape, while the other figure is a cardinal wearing a black hat and a red robe. It is possible that the cardinal depicted is either Annibale (1682-1751) or Alessandro (1692-1779) Albani, or their nephew Cardinal Giovan Francesco Albani II (1720-1803). Under the right arch of the fictive architecture, two buildings appear. While three commedia dell?arte figures, who are commonly associated with the Venetian carnevale, appear, the carriage in the background contradicts the possibility that the setting for this event is Venice. Below these three arches, a series of nine crests appear. The personification of death reclines with his scythe behind the coat of arms of the Corsini family (blue and yellow diagonal stripes with a white band through the center). The crown, which signified the rank of the family, has been wrenched off. (The Corsini were made dukes by Urban VIII in the seventeenth century and princes by Clement XII in 1730) This act of vandalism fits well within the long history of enmity between the Corsini and Albani families in the papal court. We have been unable to connect the sheet to a specific project at any Albani residence, but future research should consider the Villa Castelbarco Albani in Vaprio d?Adda, northeast of Milan, whose documentation has proved difficult to obtain.

        A View in Crumford near Matlock Bath in Derbyshire

      London: Published by John Boydell at the Globe near Durham Yard in the Strand, 1750. Engraving with hand-colour. In very good condition. 12 x 17 5/8 inches. 16 1/8 x 21 7/8 inches. A striking view from Boydell&#39;s series of plates "Collection of One Hundred Views in England and Wales." Towards the middle of the eighteenth century, a trend developed among English artists and printmakers who sought to record visually the natural beauty 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 armchair travellers 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. These fine engravings are some of the earliest examples of Boydell&#39;s work when he was known more as an engraver than a publisher and print seller. 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 also a talented print seller who 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.

        A View of Florence on the side of the Arno and of Trinity Bridge Taken from the Palace of Signior Capponi

      London.: R. Sayer.. 1750.. Copperplate engraving, handcolored, plate mark 11 3/4 x 17 1/4 inches on sheet 14 1/4 x 21 1/2 inches. Faint toning to paper edge (not affecting image), very good condition. Giuseppe Zocchi (Joseph Zocchi) (1711 or 1717 - 1767) was an Italian painter and printmaker, known for his impressive views of Florence, Italy. A collection of engravings of the views was published in 1744 under the title Scelta di XXIV vedute delle principali contrade, piazze, chiese, e palazzi della citta di Firenze, with subsequent later editions. This 1750 British copperplate engraving after a Zocchi view has rather crude but likely contemporaneous hand coloring, the skies being embellished with a strong gouache blue.
