(Rel. de l'ép.), BARBIER, III, 755; DBF, IX, 374; BNF, S- 16008. Nouvelle édition de cet ouvrage peu commun qui fut rédigé par un lyonnais dont on sait peu choses, sinon qu'il est aussi l'auteur d'un excellent traité du "Jardin potager". Selon le DBF, Charles-Jean de Combles (1741-1803), dont le nom est à tort écrit aussi Combes, ne serait pas l'auteur de cet ouvrage à qui on l'a attribué par erreur trop rapidement, mais il serait l'oeuvre d'un autre membre de sa famille.

Cibber, Colley
R. Dodsley in Pall-Mall, London. Third edition by the noted English actor-manager, comedian, playwright and Poet Laureate Colley Cibber (1671-1757). Cibber was a controversial writer whose "plays" were "adapted" from such writers as Moliere and Shakespeare. This "autobiography" has been challenged for its factual inaccuracy but was popular and lucrative for Cibber because of its chatty anecdotal style. This copy of the 1750 Third Edition is in Very Good condition with no user marks within and stable binding. Its leather boards have some wear at the edges, and the pages--particularly the frontpiece pages--have discoloration (foxing) to be expected a book over 260 years old. We offer photos that show the foxing. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

ITALY - FLORENCE)
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), printer's crease at lower edge, very good condition. Giuseppe Zocchi (Joseph Zocchi) (1711 or 1717 to 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. The publication line beneath the title reads: London Printed for R. Sayers Map & Printseller opposite Fetter Lane Fleet Street. - And J. Boydell Engraver at the Unicorn the Corner of Queen Street Cheapside.

RANDOLPH (George)
London: Printed for R. Baldwin, 1750. 8vo, 197 x 111 mms., pp. [viii], 176, recently rebound in quarter blue morocco, blue boards, red leather label on spine; lacks final advert leaf, but a very good copy. The fascination for, and belief in, the curative powers of foul-tasting liquids sometimes seems to be a genetic quirk in mankind. Tar water and its cousins were popular in medieval times, and, of course, in the 18th century Bishop George Berkeley extolled its virtues in Siris (1744). The first edition of Randolph's book was published the following year. Randolph's book begins with a historical survey of those who have noticed the medicinal properties of a well of hot water near Bristol. The secon part of the volume is devoted to the ills which are cured by Bristol-water: hectick fever ["immoderate discharges"], hemorrhages, diabetes, ulcers, etc. Similar quack cures are still to be found on the world wide web.

Laugier of Tassy, Jacques Philippe
Printed for R Griffiths, London, 1750. xiv+368 pages with one folding map and folding plan. Octavo (8" x 5") bound in full leather with five raised spine bands and red label in gilt lettering to spine and gilt decorative cover with gilt spine ends. translated by Joseph Morgan. (Querard, IV, 614 - Playfair, n° 220 - Chadenat, n° 896) later edition first published in English in 1725. This work is an influential description of Algeria, first published in 1725 in French, and expanded here with a detailed list of 73 Dutch ships captured by Algerian pirates. Algeria was at this time nominally ruled by the Ottoman Empire, but retained a great deal of independence in practice. The work begins with a description of the various inhabitants, including separate chapters on the Arabic and Turkish populations, followed by chapters on its architecture, military, navy, politics, slavery, trade etc. It was written by the Jacques Philippe Laugier de Tassy, a former diplomat in Algeria and at this date commissioner of the French navy and consul in the Netherlands. It was translated into English as A complete history of the piratical states of Barabry, a title that emphasized the notorious Algerian pirates. "Barbary" was not always a unified political entity. From the 16th century on wards, it was divided into the political entities of the Regency of Algiers, Tunis, and Tripolitania (Tripoli). Major rulers during the times of the Barbary states' plundering parties included the Pasha or Dey of Algiers, the Bey of Tunis and the Bey of Tripoli. Before then, the territory was usually divided betwe … [Click Below for Full Description]

[WHITBY] GREAT BRITAIN, Parliament.
London: Thomas Baskett, 1750. Folio, pp. [661]-672 pp. including armorial title; stitch-sewn, evidence of having been disbound at some time. An interesting 1750 Act of Parliament relating to the port of Whitby, just as it was on the cusp of becoming one of the great shipbuilding ports, where famous Australian and Pacific vessels including Cook's Endeavour and First Fleet ships the Golden Grove and the Fishburn were constructed. This Act was instrumental in the repairing of the harbour at Whitby, and instituted a series of works which were paid for by the bustling coal trade. The harbour's central importance to Cook's career in particular is well known, as it was while working out of Whitby that the great mariner established his credentials and also became enamoured of the sea-going properties of Whitby colliers. Very good.

Giovanni GRAVIER
1750. 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 stato di conservazione. Rara. G. Pane - V. Valerio, "La città di Napoli tra vedutismo e cartografia", p. 237/9, 100. 715 455mm

tiré des journaux & autres papiers de ce seigneur, & publié par Richard Walter ... ; orné de cartes & de figures en taille douce ; traduit de l'anglois. A Geneve : Chez Barrillot et fils, 1750. Second French translation. Quarto, full vellum, spine lettered in black with sepia wash, all edges stained red, title page in red and black with vignette engraving, pp xxiv (preface and table of contents); 363, [1] (directions to the binder), 34 folding engraved plates, many of them maps (a couple with old tape repairs), a very good, crisp copy in a continental vellum binding. Translation by Élie de Joncourt of Anson and Walter's A voyage around the world (1748). Anson's circumnavigation was significant in that it provided much valuable navigational information crucial to the success of Cook's voyages in the South Seas. After a series of disasters, Anson's initial squadron of six warships and two supply ships was reduced to just three by the time he entered the Pacific from Cape Horn. After sacking the Spanish port of Paita in Peru, he sailed across the Pacific to Macau with all remaining crew on his own ship, the Centurion. He then successfully followed the orders given to him by the Admiralty to seek out Spanish galleons laden with gold en route from Mexico to the Philippines, when he captured Nuestra Senora de Covadonga, carrying 1.3 million pieces of eight. Anson sold the gold in Macau and returned to England, arriving there in mid 1744.

ANTIQUE TOWN PLAN - JAKARTA.
1750. Copperplate engraved map, 21.5 x 30 cm (to neat line) on sheet 25.5 x 38 cm (including binding tab at left edge). One horizontal fold, overall good to very good condition. Scarcely noticeable dampstaining at lower right corner (well outside image area), light spotting at lower left. A detailed plan after Bellin likely from Prevost's work L'Historie Generale des Voyages. This delightful finely engraved plan shows the Batavia Castle, where the VOC had their Asian headquarters, as well as plans of the Oriental and European quarters. At the top left of the plan a key shows the important features of the castle and the town itself. An important record of a Jakarta now changed beyond recognition.

DOM, Cornelis (broker).
Not in NCC; for the circumstances, see: A. van Stipriaan, Surinaams contrast: roofbouw en overleven in een Caraïbische plantage-economie, 1750-1863 (1993), pp. 205-225. Only copy located of a broadsheet announcing the sale of bonds funding plantation owners in Suriname and the Danish West Indies sold by the Cornelis Dom, a broker specialized in bonds, loans, realty and furniture. These bonds were issued during the height of these investments and here sold just two years before the Amsterdam stock market crash of 1773 which dealt a severe blow to the plantation economy.These funds were established under the supervision of a fund manager, in this case Herman van de Poll & Co., G.H. de Wilde and Abraham ter Borch & sons, primarily funding new coffee plantations of inexperienced planters, including some who spent a large sum on luxurious accommodations. But Van de Poll let the planters' debts rise far above the total amount mortgaged. The debtors had to pay interest on the entire debt while the investors only received interest on the amount mortgaged, resulting in unaccounted profit for the fund manager Van de Poll, who was supposed to receive only the transaction commission.Formerly folded in eight and some minor creases in the margins, otherwise in very good condition especially considering its ephemeral nature.
