He was then invited to settle in New York where in 1719 he was appointed first surveyor-general of the colony, and master in chancery. He was an earnest royalist and advocate of the taxation of the colonies by the home government. He administered the affairs of the province as president of the council in 1760, and in 1761 Lord Halifax, appointed him lieutenant governor. His book on the history and lives of the Iroquois was first published in New York in 1727 without the supporting papers. It was subsequently enlarged and first published in London in 1747.

Contemporary vellum with lettering piece to spine (spotting, corners bumped, inner hinge starting), some marginal spotting and browning to text. Good, unsophisticated copy. ---- Ebert 1484. Sotheran 5913. Ferchl 18. Wheeler Gift 280. Graesse I, 271: "Infiniment rare." Vgl. Poggendorff I, 85 (EA 1733), Dibner (EA 1733). - SECOND EDITION. "The greatest scientific and philosophical work of the Middle Ages ... He stated as the fundamental principle that the study of natural sciences must rest solely on experiment; and in the fourth part he explained in detail how astronomy and physical sciences rest ultimately on mathematics, and progress only when their fundamental principles are expressed in a mathematical form. Mathematics, he say, shouldbe regarded as the alphabet of all philosophy" (Sotheran). Written in the 13th-century, this encyclopaedic work contains the results of Bacon's researches, and stands as one of the most important scientific and philosophical works of the Middle Ages. "Bacon wrote on optics, stating the laws of reflection and, in a general way, of refraction and the rainbow. He also described magnifiying glasses and a vacuum-globe balloon. He wrote on chemistry and advocated use of chemistry in medicine; he described gun-powder. He stressed the importance of experiment as the fundamental principle in the study of nature and the use of mathematics in explaining astronomy and physics" (Dibner)..

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

      Amsterdam: Peter Schenck, c. 1750. Engraved with full, period colour. Mild soiling in margins, several small tears and losses at edges. 18 3/8 x 22 1/8 inches. 22 1/8 x 26 1/4 inches. 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.

        Magnolia [Pl. LXIII]

      [Nuremberg]: 1750-1773. Engraving, coloured by hand, by J.J. or J.E.Haid. Very good condition. 17 1/4 x 11 1/2 inches. 20 x 14 1/4 inches. A very fine image from Trew's 'Plantae Selectae', one of the greatest of all eighteenth-century botanical books, drawn by the greatest of eighteenth- century botanical artists, George Dionysius Ehret. Linnaeus, wrote to Trew, in Latin, that "The miracles of our century in the natural sciences are your work of Ehret's plants...nothing to equal them was seen in the past or will be in the future." Christoph Trew, a physician and botanist, had for a number of years been an admirer of Ehret's work. 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. His artistic abilities led him to the service of a Regensburg banker named Leskenkohl, and it was during this period that Trew met Ehret. Trew was to remain a friend and patron of Ehret's throughout his life, and by 1742, the germ of what was to become the present publication was already under discussion when Trew wrote to Christian Thran in Carlsruhe "Every year I receive some beautifully painted exotic plants [by Ehret] and have already more than one hundred of them...." 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. Discussions about the projected work continued by letter until 1748, when Johann Jacob Haid from Augsburg agreed to produce the engravings from Ehret's drawings.

        Tulipa I, Fraeulein von Münchingen

      Nuremberg: [no date but circa 1750-1762]. Etching, with engraving, coloured by hand, by J. M. Seligmann. Very good condition. 17 1/8 x 8 3/4 inches. 8 13/16 x 13 9/16 inches. A very fine image from the work described by Dunthorne as 'one of the finest records of the cultivated flowers of the period' and by Blunt (p. 166) as 'one of the most decorative florilegia of the mid-eighteenth century.' A complete copy of this work sold for almost $1,000,000 in London in 2002. The great characteristic of this beautiful plate, from Trew's Hortus Nitidissimus, is the way in which the watercolour and bodycolour painting almost entirely eclipses the engraved lines. Although the work was actually started by Johann Michael Seligmann (1720-1762), the engravings were based on the collection of flower drawings owned by the botanist and bibliophile Christoph Trew, a distinguished physician of Nuremberg. Georg Ehret (1708- 1770), who enjoyed Trew's patronage from 1732 and traveled widely on his behalf before settling in London in 1736, produced the designs for 40 of the eventual total of 188 plates. The remainder were drawn up by a team of local artists, including J.C. Keller, Professor of Drawing at Erlangen University, the court painter Nikolaus Eisenberger, and A.L. Wirsing. Cf. Brunet V, 943; cf. Dunthorne 310; cf. Great Flower Books (1990) p. 144; cf. Harvard Arnold, p. 700; cf. Johnston Cleveland 493; cf. Nissen BBI 1995; cf. Pritzel 9500

Dopo la morte dell?autore, le lastre furono ereditate dal figlio Francesco, che ne curò la pubblicazione prima nella capitale, e poi a Parigi. Le lastre furono quindi acquisite dalla Calcografia Camerale, oggi Calcografia Nazionale, dove sono tuttora conservate. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Etching with engraving, 1750, signed on plate. Fourth state of six from the contemporary Roma Edition.

        L'Empire du Japon?

      La carta del Giappone pubblicata dal Vaougondy è molto simile a quella pubblicata dal Martini 100 anni prima ma è la prima che dipinge in modo corretto l'isola. Incisione in rame, coloritura coeva dei contorni, in ottime condizioni. Very similar to Joan Blaeu's map of 100 years previously: Europeans by then had been expelled, except the Dutch, whose movements were so curtailed that they were not able to gather much significant geographical knowledge. Fine cartouche, a mixture of rococo and oriental styles. This is one of the first maps to show the more correct North-east sweep of the islands. The map is of interest for the use of East Sea, the sea between Korea and Japan, here called "Mer de Corée" and Mer de Japon". Parigi Paris Walter 86 560 490

        Partie Orientale de La Lombardie qui comprend la Republique de Venise? Parigi: Robert de Vaugondy, 1750

      PARIGI: ROBERT DE VAUGONDY, 1750 1750 Incisione calcografica in acquarellatura coeva di mm 630 x 492 su bella carta vergatina francese; filigrana "PGVD". Magnifico foglio, perfettamente candido a pieni margini. Gilles Robert de Vaugondy (1688-1766), also known as Le Sieur or Monsieur Robert, and his son, Didier Robert de Vaugondy (c.1723-1786), were leading mapmakers in France during the 1700s. In 1757, they published The Atlas Universel, one of the most important atlases of the 18th century. To produce the atlas, the Vaugondys integrated older sources with more modern surveyed maps. They verified and corrected the latitude and longitude of many regional maps in the atlas with astronomical observations. The older material was revised with the addition of many new place names. In 1760, Didier Robert de Vaugondy was appointed geographer to Louis XV. Gilles and Didier Robert De Vaugondy produced their maps and terrestrial globes working together as father and son. Globes of a variety of sizes were made by gluing copperplate-printed gores on a plaster-finished papier-mache core, a complicated and expensive manufacturing process, employing several specialists. In some cases it is uncertain whether Gilles or Didier made a given map. Gilles often signed maps as "M.Robert", while Didier commonly signed his maps as "Robert de Vaugondy", or added "fils" or "filio" after his name. The Robert de Vaugondys were descended from the Nicolas Sanson family through Sanson's grandson, Pierre Moulard-Sanson; from him they inherited much of Sanson's cartographic material which they combined with maps and plates acquired after Hubert Jaillot's death in 1712 to form the basis the Atlas Universel. Sources from the Depot de la Marine, the official French repository for maritime-related information, were used for their maps of Canada and South America. Like Ortelius and Mercator, the Vaugondy's credited their sources, which has greatly benefited the study of the history of cartography during that period.

Sandrart, nel 1702 iniziò una propria produzione cartografica, raggiungendo ben presto un notevole successo per l'eleganza e la modernità, ben amalgamando aspetto scientifico e decorativo. Nel 1707 pubblicò il primo atlante, arricchendolo rapidamente fino a superare il centinaio di carte con il ''Grosser Atlas" di 126 carte. Morì nel 1723.Bell'esemplare, ottimo stato di conservazione.

        Della Storia Naturale Marina dell'Adriatico. Saggio. Giuntavi una Lettera del Signor Dottore Lionardo Sesler intorno ad un nuovo genere di Piante Terrestri.

      in Venezia, appresso Francesco Storti, 1750. 1750 In-4° (315x225mm), pp. (8), LXXXI, legatura coeva m. pelle marrone e angoli con titolo in oro su tassello al dorso e piatti marmorizzati. Tagli a spruzzo rossi. Vignetta incisa al titolo. In fine, 10 tavv. ripiegate incise su rame raffiguranti piante marine dell'Adriatico. Reintegrazione antica al margine inferiore della tav. VIII. Ottimo esemplare. Prima edizione, assai rara, della maggiore opera del Donati (Padova, 1717-nel Mar Arabico, presso Mangalore, 1762). "Il libro contiene considerazioni generali sulla biologia marina, osservazioni originali sull'idrografia e la geologia della costa adriatica orientale, nozioni schematiche sul materiale di pesca, le descrizioni di alcuni fossili e, soprattutto, la presentazione dettagliata e ben illustrata di molte specie che vivono in questo mare e con le quali "la natura fa passaggio dalle piante agli animali". L'opera del D. ha influenzato il pensiero biologico europeo per la dimostrazione del carattere sostanzialmente animale della riproduzione e della crescita dei coralli e per la scoperta della fruttificazione del Fucus che portò le prove dell'identità fondamentale degli organi di riproduzione nel vegetali marini e terrestri. Malgrado alcune voci critiche da parte del mondo scientifico francese, il successo di questo libro fu immediato e durevole: A. von Haller ne fece, ad esempio, l'elogio e ne sottolineò l'originalità: "nobile opus ex proprio labore natum" (in Bibl. botanica, Tiguri 1772, II, p. 400). La parte dedicata ai coralli fu tradotta in inglese e pubblicata con il titolo: New discoveries relating to the history of coral nelle Philosophical transactions, XLVII (1751), p. 95. Cat. of British Museum, I, II, p. 472. Nissen, 1137. Stafleu-C., 1500.

        Pianta della Città di Napoli

      La pianta di Napoli realizzata dai francesi Jolivet & Gravier rappresenta il capostipite di una serie di piante della città. Realizzata entro i consueti limiti cartografici canonici di Mergellina e del ponte della Maddalena, sebbene la città si fosse espansa, ha rappresentato un notevole onere nei rilievi topografici. Un lavoro ben superiore ed importante per essere classificato solamente come un mero tentativo di commercializzazione. La pianta comprende ne 136 numeri di leggenda. Il Gravier, era un noto editore francese napoletano di adozione. Pertanto non può sorprendere il fatto che la pianta si diffuse sopratutto nell'ambiente francese della città. Il presente esemplare differisce da quello pubblicato nel Pane & Valerio per il titolo in basso e la mancanza della cornice ornamentale. Il fatto che la legenda in basso sia stampata su un foglio di carta a parte poi applicato nella stampa lascia presupporre che si tratti di uno sttao antecedente della pianta o di una prova di stampa. Incisione in rame, margini aggiunti, in ottimo sttao di conservazione. Rara. Napoli Naples Pane & Valerio La Città di Napoli tra vedutismo e cartografia, p. 237/9, 100. 715 455

        Mappa di Pozzuoli secondo lo stato presente anno 1750

      Editore, incisore e libraio, Paolo Petrini è attivo a Napoli tra il 1692 ed il 1748, realizzando numerose opere grafiche e topografiche, molto spesso derivandole da quelle di Sanson e Nicolas de Fer. La sua produzione è molto vasta e comprende centinaia di carte, molte delle quali ispirate al Mercurio Geografico della tipografia De Rossi di Roma. Gli successe il figlio Nicolò, che tuttavia secondo il Tooley risulta autore di solo questa rara mappa. E? probabile quindi che la mappa sia di Paolo Petrini, edita dal figlio dopo la morte. Incisione in rame, applicata su tela coeva, in eccellente stato di conservazione. Bibliografia: Tooley, Dictionary, p. 414. Dimensioni 630x460. Publisher, engraver and book seller, Paolo Petrini worked in Naples between 1692 and 1748, realizing many graphic and topographic works, very often inspired by Sanson and Nicolas de Fer. His production is quite extensive and includes hundreds of maps, many of which drive inspiration form the Mercurio Geografico published in Rome by De Rossi. His son, Nicolò, succeeded the father in the business, though Tooley says he only realized this second map. Very likely, then, it is Paolo Petrini the author, and the son published it after his death. Copper engraving, laid on contemporary canvas, in excellent condition.

        Hortus Nitidissimis omnem per annum superbiens floribus sive amoenissimorum Florum Imagines.... Der das ganze Jahr hindurch im schönsten Flor stehende Blumengarten, oder Abbildungen der lieblichsten Blumen... herausgegeben von Johann Michael Seligmann.

      Nürnberg, Auf Kosten der Seligmännischen Erben/ Ludwig Wirsing, [1750-] 1772-1786. 3 volumes bound in 1. Folio (506 x 343mm). Parallel text in Latin and German. With 155 splendid handcoloured engraved plates on 153 leaves (plates 60/61 and 121/122 combined on one leaf). Contemporary speckled calf, elaborately gilt central device on upper and lower covers within gilt floral frames, outer corners with gilt floral sprays, rebacked spine gilt in compartments to match, some skilful repairs. A beautifully preserved copy of one of the finest German botanical works ever published. It is described by Dunthorne as 'one of the finest records of the cultivated flowers of the period' and by Blunt as 'one of the most decorative florilegia of the mid-eighteenth century. Our copy has plates 1 to 143 and 12 more plates numbered between 147 and 179. Complete copies should have 180 plates. Complete copies however are of the greatest rarity. Only one copy has been offered for sale at auction with 180 plates and the complete text. This was the celebrated De Belder-Mackenzie copy, which was sold by Sotheby's in London 10 May 2001, lot 19 for Pounds 500,000, exclusive of commission. That same copy had been sold by Sotheby's 28 April 1987, lot 362 for Pounds 308,000. Our copy has the text to the first 2 parts, lacking 1leaf. This superbly produced work belongs together with Besler's 'Hortus Eystettensis' to the finest German publications on botany. It is a gallery of the most colourful and ravishing flowers that could be grown in European gardens, including tulips, hyacinths, ranunculi, and roses. On many of the plates, the opacity of the finely applied gouache makes the image appear as a painting rather than an engraved or etched plate. This is especially the case with tulips, which are akin to some of the great studies on vellum executed by botanical artists of the seventeenth century, the golden age of tulipomania. The plates are made by the best artists of the period, such as Georg Dionysius Ehret, the foremost botanical artist of the 'Golden Age of Botanical Art'. Ehret's art combined botanical exactitude with great beauty and design, and his work has never been surpassed. 'The genius of Ehret was the dominant influence in botanical art during the middle years of the eighteenth century' (Blunt). Other artists are Johann Michael Seligmann, Johann Michael Stock, Adam Ludwig Wirsing after Barbara Regina Dietzsch, Johann Christoph Keller and others. "Trew was a Nuremberg physician, anatomist, and botanist who at various times served as dean of the medical school at Nuremberg, as an Imperial Counsellor, and as personal physician to the Emperor. He was made a Palzgraf and served as patron of botanical (and anatomical) illustrators, filling roughly the same position in Germany as that occupied by Sir Hans Sloane in England" (Johnston 429). Trew was Ehret's lifelong friend and patron. After London, Nuremberg was the most important botanical centre of the day. "All in all Trew's versatility as a collector, scholar and Maecenas was outstanding in the Germany of his time. His English contemporaries and colleagues whose collections matched or surpassed his own are remembered to this day, notably Sloane, founder of the British Museum, whereas Trew's name is practically unknown in Germany today "(Calmann, 'Ehret flower painter extraordinary', p. 26). Due to the long period of publication the 'Hortus nitidissimis...' is conspicuously absent from some of the major collections, or else represented only by fragments. The work is considered complete with 180 plates, however 10 more plates were issued of which only a handfull were distributed. The only copy in libraries to have the 190 plates is the copy in the Arnold Arboretum, of Harvard University. Dunthorne 310 (calling for 180 plates on 178 leaves); Great Flower Books, p. 78 (180 plates); Pritzel 9500 180 plates), Stafleu TL2, 15.130 (190 numbered plates on 188 leaves); see also W.J. Tjaden, "Hortus nitidissimis', Taxon, 20 (4) 461-466 & Ludwig, 'Nürnberger naturgeschichtliche Malerei im 17. und 18. Jahrhundert', pp. 151-180.

        Il Malmantile racquistato di Perlone Zipoli colle note di Puccio Lamoni e d'altri.

      Firenze, Francesco Moücke, 1750. 1750 2 voll. in-4° (260x200mm), pp. XXXX, 912 (numerazione continua); legatura coeva in piena pergamena con titolo in oro su tassello al dorso e tagli marmorizzati policromi. Bella antiporta allegorica incisa in rame dallo Zuccarelli da disegno del Lippi stesso, frontespizio in rosso e nero, due ritratti di Lorenzo Lippi (uno in età giovanile e uno in età matura) e uno di Paolo Minucci (quest'ultimo inciso in rame e ripiegato f. t.), iniziali e testatine incise in rame. Testatine figurate incise in rame. Dedicatoria del tipografo al patrizio fiorentino Giovanni Altoviti. Ottimo esemplare. Edizione fiorentina del noto poema eroicomico in 12 canti del pittore e letterato Lorenzo Lippi (1606-1664), uscito postumo nel 1676, sotto lo pseudonimo di Perlone Zipoli, con un largo commento apposto da un amico del Lippi, Paolo Minucci (Puccio Lamoni). Precedono il poema alcune dedicatorie e sonetti e la vita del Lippi scritta da Filippo Baldinucci nelle sue "Notizie de' Professori del Disegno". L'edizione contiene foltissime annotazioni in calce del Minucci, di Antommaria Salvini e Antommaria Biscioni. L'opera è imperniata sulla contesa tra Celidora e Bertinella per il reame di Malmantile, castello diroccato presso Signa. L'idea del poema venne all'autore del vecchio castello di Malmantile, a sette miglia da Firenze, ancorché il titolo venne allegoricamente desunto da "vecchie tovaglie da tavola"; esso serba un notevolissimo valore linguistico, in quanto il Lippi raccolse in esso i riboboli circolanti nella lingua viva del popolo fiorentino verso la meta' del 600. Nel poema figurano numerosi personaggi del tempo adombrati sotto nomi fittizi, come Salvator Rosa (Salvo Rosata), che era amico del Lippi, e Carlo Dati (Alticardo). Brunet, V, 1537. Graesse, VII, 516. Gamba, 597: "Molto più ornata, accresciuta e corretta delle antecedenti". Passano, I, 595. Melzi, II, 329.

        HORTUS NITIDISSIMIS ... : Auricula Ursi II; Herzog Von Cumberland (print)

      Original hand-coloured engraving executed by J. M. Seligmann. Leaf measures 19.9 x 14.2 inches (50.5 x 36 cm). Fine condition. Matted and ready for framing. From Christoph Trew's magnificent HORTUS NITIDISSIMIS OMNEM PER ANNUM SUPERBIENS FLORIBUS published in three volumes over a 36 year period from 1750-1786. Painted in a more opaque gouche to resemble a painting rather than the traditional use of water-colours that allowed more of the engraving to show through. Each piece is meant to capture the flower at the peak of it's beauty instead of focusing solely on scientific detail. Several artists from different European nations were involved in this project giving a multi-ethnic flavour to the complete work. HORTUS NITIDISSIMIS is considered to be one of the most sumptuous of the florigelia. Being one of the most elusive of the great flower books, the opportunity to own one of these leaves is reserved for only the most discriminating collectors.

        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.

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.
