        Histoire de la Jamaïque, traduite de l"Anglois. Par M.***, [Joseph Raulin] ancien Officier de Dragons.

      Londres: Chez Nourse, 1751 - Première édition française, 2 tomes in-12; T.I: [iv], 285p. T.II: [iv], 248p.; 6 planches dépliantes gravées par Nicolas-Jean-Baptiste de Poilly reliées in-fine. Reliure d"époque en plein veau marbré, dos lisse orné, gardes marbrées, tranches rouges. Coiffes inférieures arasées avec petit travail de vers en pied des mors, mais un bon exemplaire frais. Ouvrage anonyme, souvent attribué à Sir Hans Sloane mais parfois à Charles Leslie [exemplaire de la British Library], qui signe la dédicace dans l"édition anglaise de 1740. Sloane passa une quinzaine de mois entre 1687 et 1689 en Jamaïque, où il avait suivi le duc d"Albermarle en qualité de médecin. Il assembla une superbe collection botanique, et publia ses travaux en 1707 et 1725. Le présent ouvrage, sous forme de treize lettres, couvre l"histoire de la Jamaïque jusqu"en novembre 1739 et fait référence plusieurs fois au "Sieur Hans Sloane" et à sa collection de plantes. L"ouvrage comprend des détails fort intéressants sur les tremblements de terre, les pirates, les esclaves, le commerce, les relations avec l"Espagne, l"histoire naturelle? Les six planches gravées de Nicolas-Jean-Baptiste de Poilly représentent un moulin à sucre, des hirondelles de mer, un alligator, un arbre à café, du gingembre, un "régime de figues ou bananes".

        Formulae'. Et: 'Plantae quae praecipue sine temporibus apud practicos in usu sunt'. Anonymes Manuskript in französischer und lateinischer Sprache, nach 1690, braune Tinte auf Papier, 179 S., (13) S. (Index), (32) S., Blattgröße 16,5 x 10,5 cm.

      - Lederband der Zeit, ohne Rückentitel, die reiche Rückenvergoldung etwas verblasst (Einband stellenweise berieben). Die vorliegende Handschrift besteht aus 2 Teilen: der erste Teil ist in französischer und lateinischer Sprache abgefasst, wobei der lateinische Text weitgehend identisch ist mit dem posthum erst 1751 in Lyon im Druck erschienenen Werk 'Medicamentorum constitutio, seu Formulae Caroli Barbeirac, in lucem editae ac auctae, curà & studio Doctoris medici Monspessulani (Jacobi Farjon)', das zwar Barbeyrac (1629 - 1699) als Autor nennt, aber von seinem Neffen Sydobre zusammengestellt worden sein soll (vergl. Wellcome II, S. 98). Behandelt werden in diesem ersten Teil 'Des remedes externes' und 'Des remedes moyen', wobei einzelne Heilmittel, deren Wirkung und die Zusammensetzung vorgestellt werden - geordnet nach der Art ihrer Herstellung : Absud, Bouillon, Emulsion, Creme, Sirup, Milch, Tabletten, Puder etc. Ab Seite 97 werden die Therapien erläutert: Bäder, Umschläge, Tropfen, Pflaster, Salben, Riechkissen, Klistiere, Gurgeln etc. Charles de Barbeyrac erhielt seine medizinische Ausbildung zunächst in Aix en Provence, dann in Montpellier und wurde dort 1658 zum Professor ernannt. Die in der vorliegenden Handschrift in französischer Sprache abgefassten Kapitel sind eine nicht gedruckte französische Übersetzung dieses Textes. Das Schriftbild und einige Hinweise im Text (so heißt es etwa im Zusammenhang mit der Verwendung des Chinins, "il n'y a quenviron cinquante ans quelle est en usage" , S. 72) legen eine Datierung der Handschrift auf etwa 1690 nahe. Tatsächlich wurde die Chinarinde (pulvis cardinalis, cortex peruvianus, pulvis jesuiticus) um 1640 nach Europa gebracht und durch die Jesuiten bekannt gemacht. Andere Aussagen, wie die über die Herstellung von Schokolade, Tee und Kaffee (S. 76 ff.) weisen auf die gleiche Zeit der Abfassung hin. Dann wäre das Manuskript etwa 60 Jahre vor der Drucklegung des Textes entstanden - ob als Vorlesungsmitschrift oder Druckvorlage, müßte eine eingehendere Untersuchung klären. Der zweite Teil, mit der Beschreibung der gängigen Medizinalpflanzen, ist ausschließlich in Latein abgefasst und beginnt mit der Wermutpflanze (absynthium) um im Folgenden für zahlreiche weitere Pflanzen anzugeben, welche Teile als Heilmittel Verwendung finden können. - Von wenigen Tintenflecken abgesehen, nahezu fleckenfrei und kaum gebräunt.

A very good, clean and well-margined copy overall.. First Edition, first issue. BUC p. 366. RISM G1539 (one copy only recorded in the U.S.). "By far the most famous and influential of Geminiani's treatises was The Art of Playing on the Violin (1751): the first violin treatise addressed to advanced players and based on the practice of professional violinists, especially those in the Italian tradition of Corelli and his pupils. As such it looks somewhat to the past, but in expression and in technique much of it looks ahead. For example, it advocates the principles of modern chromatic fingerings, the use of extensions and contraction of the hand, and what is in principle a continuous vibrato." The New Grove Vol. 7 p. 228. Thomas William Taphouse "was the son of Charles Taphouse (c1816-1881), the founder of the firm of Charles Taphouse & Son Ltd, first established in 1857 at 10 Broad Street, Oxford... His collection of early music and instruments, which contained numerous rare and some unique printed and manuscript items (including the only contemporary source of the Violin Sonata by Henry Purcell), became one of the finest in the country. The library was sold by auction at Sotheby, Wilkinson & Hodge's in 1905, for a total of 1062." Albi Rosenthal in Grove online

        Plate 56 - Red Frontiniac Grape

      George  Brookshaw (1751-1823)Illustrated plate from Pomona BritannicaLondon: 1804-1812Hand-colored aquatint engraving; Sheet size: 22 1/2" x 18"Excellent conditionThe publication of the ?Pomona? marked the re-emergence of the acclaimed artist into the public eye after a total disappearance of nearly a decade. A successful cabinetmaker with the patronage of the Prince of Wales, Brookshaw suddenly disappeared from view in the mid-1790?s, and with the ?Pomona? he not only trumpeted his return but demonstrated the skills he had acquired in a new metier: botanical art. Characterized by the highest standards of production and artistic quality, the superb illustrations that Brookshaw drew and engraved for the ?Pomona? remain perhaps the most sumptuous and distinctive of the early 19th century.Brookshaw?s fine illustrations make excellent use of the rich, modulated tones that the aquatint process creates. The elegantly arranged and richly colored fruits emerge from deep brown backgrounds or float on a softly mottled light ground, creating a presence unlike that of any other botanical illustrations. Brookshaw asserts in the preface that the Pomona Britannica was an enduring work created for the enjoyment and edification of  ?succeeding generations.? The beauty and uniqueness of his illustrations guarantees the lasting value of this most exceptional work.

        Nomina eorum, qui in infima classe anno 1751 dicaturam majorem occuparunt.

      (Graz), 1751-ca. 1825.. (90) SS. Pergamentband der Zeit über Holzdeckeln mit herausragend gearbeiteten goldgeprägten ornamentalen Deckelbordüren und schwarz-roter Lackierung sowie Eckfleurons und Wolkenkleistervorsätzen. Dreiseitiger Goldschnitt. 8vo. Anbei: 9 eigenh. Gedichte von Therese ("Resi") von Lendenfeld sowie ein Brief an dieselbe. 18 SS. 8vo.. Hübsches Handbüchlein eines Lehrers am Akademischen Gymnasiums zu Graz, sehr wahrscheinlich geführt vom Jesuiten Oswald Gutsmann (1727-90). Gutmann, gebürtiger Kärnter und Sprachforscher des Windischen, wirkte von 1748 bis 1751 in Leoben und war 1751-54 Lehrer in Graz, dann 1759-60 Präfekt des Wiener Theresianums. Akribisch vermerkt er die Namen seiner Schüler und deren Leistungen. In der Folge gelangte das Büchlein, vermutlich als Belohnung oder Erinnerung, an den Schüler Franz Xaver Edler von Lendenfeld, der, wie aus den Einträgen hervorgeht, stets zu den Besten seines Jahrgangs zählte. Der Band dürfte anschließend übergegangen sein an seinen Sohn, den Beamten und Schriftsteller Franz Xaver Rt. von Lendenfeld (5. Aug. 1769-18. Juli 1832), der 1792 das Schauspiel "Knapp Konrad der Stählerne" verfasste (bei Doll; Wernigg 1607); dieser F. X. Lendenfeld wurde Jurist und trat 1795 in die k. k. Provinzial-Staatsbuchhalterei Graz ein (vgl. OeStA, FHKA-SB Pers ORH 6039). Neben und zwischen den Lehrereintragungen finden sich zahlreiche spätere Gedichte von Lendenfelds ältester Tochter Therese ("Resi", geb. um 1807) sowie ein Abschiedsbrief in Versen an dieselbe (von einer "Sophia"?). Zu des ersten Lendenfelds Klassenkameraden zählten laut Aufzeichnungen u. a. Anton Nuvolone, Franz Xaver Stöger, Franz Lambert Schwamberger, Mathias Gutsmandl, Josef Wurmb, Josef Mayr, Kosef Wildoner, Franz Ernst Gasteiger, Josef von Blumencron, Michael Klabutschar, Franz Gebronschnigg, Alois Kaltenbrunner, Ignaz Piccardi, Josef von Pensemon, Josef Firpas und Josef Osmez. - Zu den erwähnten Schülern vgl. J. Andritsch, Die Matrikeln der Univ. Graz IV (1711-65), 2002, S. 230 ff. Zu Gutsmann vgl. Kosch (Kath. Dtl.) 481. Hamberger/Meusel II, 1756. Wurzbach VI, 47. De Backer/Sommervogel III, 1973.

        Bibliothecae Regiae Stockholmensis. Historia Brevis et Succinta

      1751. Holmiae, Typis Laurentii Salvii, anno 1751. (iv),210,(xiv)pp. Small 8vo. Later quarter black leather with black cloth-covered boards. (edges rubbed). First edition of this history of the Royal library in Stockholm. The history of this library goes back to the 16th century when King Gustav Vasa started collecting books. The Royal Collection formed the basis of what is now the National Library. Much of the library went up in flames during the great palace fire of 1697 when 17,286 bound volumes and 1,103 manuscripts were lost. Only 6,700 volumes and 283 manuscripts survived. Celsius (1716-1794), was a librarian and wrote other histories of important libraries. [Almquist 2629].

        Geschichte des Gaudentio di Lucca: oder merkwurdige Nachricht

      Frankfurt & Leipzig: Gebruder ..., 1751. Two volumes in one, octavo; early ownership inscription, faded library stamp title verso, a little loose but a good copy contemporary vellum, a bit stained. A lost city in Africa whose inhabitants do no wrong. The first German edition and one of the scarcest of all editions of Berington's utopia: NUC, for example, lists only two copies, compared with twelve for the first English edition of 1737. Although it pretends to derive from an Italian source, the Memoirs was created by an Englishman. The text was sometimes thought to be the work of Bishop Berkeley, but became correctly attributed to Berington during the nineteenth century. As the title suggests, the work takes the form of a trial transcript, with questioning from various inquisitors and a learned commentary from one Signor Rhedi. The protagonist Gaudentio, hauled in front of the Inquisition, describes Mezzorania in Africa, a city which has been cut off from external contact for over three thousand years. His first impression of the principal city of Phor is of an 'immense Garden', but his more detailed analysis shows a city which owes much to the solar model earlier proposed by Campanella in Città del Sole. Less regulated than many other utopias, the citizens have a system based on the precept 'Thou shalt do no wrong to anyone'. Unusually for the strict utopia, long-term relationships based on love are actively encouraged; indeed, Gaudentio talks at length about his own relationship with a Mezzoranian woman. Ellison, in an article devoted to this 'forgotten utopia' and its authorship, comments that 'Berington can stand upon his own merits, and the early appraisal of the work which saw in it the reflection of a wise, humane, and generous spirit does not have to be seriously discounted.' ('Gaudentio Di Lucca: A Forgotten Utopia', PMLA, 1935). Similarly, Gove happily approves Dunlop classing the work with Gulliver's Travels and Robinson Crusoe.

        Relacao summaria da prizam, tormentos, e glorioso Martyrio dos veneraveis Padres Antonio Joseph Portuguez, e Tristam de Attimis

      1751 - Early persecutions of Jesuit priests in China. 1751. Lisbon. Francisco da Silva. In 4to (184 mm x 135 mm) 38 pp. Unbound. Scattered foxing, else fine. First edition in Portuguese. The work deals with the persecution, arrest, imprisonment and execution of a group of Jesuit missionaries under the Qianlong Emperor. “During the violent outbreak of persecution in Fukien, in 1746, Hukwang and Kiangnan enjoyed a relative peace that lasted until the end of 1747 when two Jesuits working in Kiangnan, Antonio Jose Henriques and Tristano Francesco de Attimis, were arrested, condemned to death and executed” (“China Missions in crisis”, Joseph Krahl). After De Attimis and Henriquez’ capture, they were subdued to torture “De Attimis who was new in the mission and did not speak the language well, was not treated badly, but Henriques was cruelly tortured on several occasions”, apparently Henriquez got the worst part. “Relatan las persecuciones sufridas por los cristianos en 1746 y años siguientes. La Relacion del P. simoens es relativa a la Provincia de Pekin.” (Medina). An edition was printed by Nicolas de la Cruz Bagay in Manila “Breve relacion sobre la persecucion de nuestra Santa Fe en la Provincia de Kiamnan, y otras Provincias del Imperio de la China, ilustres vidas de los PP. Ant. Joseph Henriquez, y Tristan de Atimis, por el P. Luis de Sequeyra y el P. Juan Simoes, de la Compañia de Jesus”. The Jesuit presence in China underwent different periods with the local authorities, some of great favor and some less so. This chapter of the Sino-Jesuit relations is to be considered amongst the most agitated. The relations under the Manchu were overall excellent, especially under Kangxi, who had little hesitation to appoint the Jesuits as advisers on mapping and engineering. The persecution, martyrdom and imprisonment of these priests, was one of the few periods of unrest for the missionaries. Palau, 309407 (Manila edition). [Attributes: First Edition]

        A Review of the Works of the Royal Society of London

      London: R. Griffiths, 1751. Quarto, very good, contemporary calf boards with gilt lettering to front board, spine recently renewed in period style, raised bands, gilt morocco label. First edition: a wonderful satirical attack on the Royal Society by London apothecary and herbalist John Hill (1716-1775), who here mocks and mimics a choice selection of experiments and articles from the Philosophical Proceedings (published by the Society from 1665). With Hill's light comic touch and eye for the absurd, A Review of the Works of the Royal Society features eighty dissertations on subjects such as 'An easy way of taking a Vomit', 'Account of a Mer-Man', and 'A true and accurate account of a Hermaphrodite'. Hill was, by various accounts, a gifted yet belligerent individual of lavish tastes and uncertain means. He established himself as an apothecary but ventured into botanical collecting to increase his profits: failure to do so led to a short yet unsuccessful stage career followed by a return to his original trade. Throughout his life he wrote a large volume of satires, often hostile and usually libellous, masked by anonymity and pseudonyms. He was incensed by his inability to secure nomination to the Royal Society, despite having contributed two learned articles to their Proceedings. This book, one of the few to bear Hill's true identity, was the result. Some of the entries are utterly absurd, but most touch upon real science, usually mocking the serious but often bizarre experiments being undertaken by amateur scientists in the eighteenth century. Throughout the book he blends arcane and contemporary science to confuse the reader, in the process exposing many scientific ambiguities of the time such as the notion of spontaneous generation of simple animals from natural substances. Ironically, Hill was a serious botanist despite his frequent clashes with the establishment, and one of the longer entries on methods for drying botanical specimens is clearly derived from his botanical knowledge. In 1759 he commenced a mammoth botanical encyclopaedia of 26 folio volumes with 1,600 copper-plate engravings, completed shortly before his death in 1775. This vast publication was the first botanical study of Great Britain organised along Linnean principles of classification and description. This book is from the library of Hugh Cleghorn (1752-1837), a luminary of the Scottish Enlightenment. The attractive polished calf boards are boldly stamped "WAKEFIELD" the St. Andrews estate owned by Cleghorn.

Der schon zu Lebzeiten geschätzte Sohn des Marinemalers Hendrik Kobell (1751-1779) kam kurz nach dessen Tod im Alter von einem Jahr in ein Waisenhaus nach Utrecht und studierte dort bei dem Tiermaler und Bildhauer W.R. van der Wall (1756-1813). 1805 wurde Kobell Mitglied des Utrechter "Schilderscollege", zwei Jahre später gründete er gemeinsam mit P.C. Wonder (1780-1852) die "Kunstliefde". 1810-1812 lebte er in Paris, wo er Werke des bedeutenden holländischen Tiermalers P. Potter (1625-1654) kopierte, der sein Vorbild war. Im Jahr darauf ließ er sich in Amsterdam nieder, wo er bereits im Alter von etwa 35 Jahren verstarb. Reine Genremotive, wie bei dem vorliegenden Blatt, kommen im Werk des "Utrechter Kobell" recht selten vor. Bei dem dargestellten Thema könnte es sich um den Verweis auf seine eigene wirtschaftliche Situation handeln, die sicher zu Beginn seiner künstlerischen Laufbahn - und möglicherweise auch später noch - nicht üppig gewesen sein dürfte.
