        Arithmetick manuscript

      Overview Details & Condition  An unusually nice 18th-century child's mathematics workbook decorated with calligraphic drawings and elaborately scrolled paraphs. The owner of this manuscript was William Killick (1752-1837) of Shipley, West Sussex, who created it in 1763 and 1764, when he was 11 years old. It contains rules, charts, and solved problems in addition, subtraction, elementary monetary calculation, multiplication, division, reduction (converting quantities), weights and measures (including troy weights, wool weights, apothecaries' weights, square mileage, time, and beer, wine, and cloth measures), and a basic level of algebra comprising: "The Golden Rule or Rule of Three Direct", "The Single Rule of Three", and "The Double Rule of Three". The word problems are of particular interest, as they set the manuscript firmly within its time and place. One begins "A medalist lays out 6" 8' on curious coins...", and another asks the student to imagine a merchant ship that was loaded with gold lace, rich silks, logwood, and "sundry other goods", but "tempestious weather arising was obliged to cast overboard" part of the cargo. One even tells us about the owner: "William Killick being 11 years old in the date 1763. In what year of our Lord was he born in?"Based on the contents and what we know of Killick's life, it is reasonable to assume that he was middle class, perhaps the son of a tradesman or shopkeeper, and was being given a practical, career-focused education. But it seems that, like many children, William was less interested in mathematics than in doodling in his notebook. In addition to his often very large and elaborate calligraphy he has added to the text charming human faces, animals, pen trials, and floral patterns. It's possible, though not certain, that some of the text was written out by a tutor - for instance, some of the the charts, titles, and word problems, which are in a more controlled hand. A good example is a sophisticated calligraphic title, "Addition of Money", which incorporates a face and a bird, and seems to have inspired Killick's own more clumsy attempts at similar designs later in the text. (Speaking of clumsy, there also seems to have been an accident with the red ink bottle, as the cover and a few leaves have been splashed.)Given the manuscript's intended purpose it is in remarkably nice condition in the contemporary vellum binding, and offers a superb look at how mathematics was taught to middle class boys during the 18th century. Shipley, West Sussex, 1763-64. 200 x 160 mm. 180 page notebook containing 156 pages of manuscript and 24 blank pages. Contemporary stiff vellum binding, the upper board labelled by hand in ink "William Killick's Arithmetick, 1763" in an elaborate script, and the first leaf with the manuscript title, "William Killick, His Book 1764". Binding a little rubbed and discoloured with some small worn spots, small knocked area at the head of the spine, contents lightly toned, particularly at the edges, a few light red ink splashes to the upper board, front pastedown, and tail margin of the first few leaves, evidencing slightly clumsy handling of the ink-bottle at some stage. Very good, unsophisticated condition.

        The Adventurer

      London: J. Payne, 1752-, 1754. Most of the imprints at the end of each number trimmed away or cropped (as often: the imprints appear very low on the page), but with decent margins throughout, signature clipped from upper corners of flyleaves; extremities rubbed, joints partly cracked but sound, generally in excellent, crisp condition.. 140 original numbers bound into two volumes, small folio; library bookplates with release stamps, small stamps on title-pages; in contemporary tree calf, spines gilt in compartments between raised bands with ornate double labels;. Cook's editor's influential literary periodical: the first edition, in an elegant contemporary binding. It was because of the prolific literary skills and the versatile pen exhibited in works like The Adventurer that Hawkesworth was appointed to compile the official account of the voyages, based on the journals kept by Captain James Cook and others, selling the copyright to Strahan and Cadell for the then immense sum of £6000.This is a rare complete set, in excellent condition, of this creation which was intended as a successor to Johnson's Rambler, for which he had been a major contributor; although here Hawkesworth was not only the editor and major contributor, but also the creator. He was assisted in his effort by Joseph Warton and Richard Bathurst, as well as by Dr Johnson himself, who contributed twenty-nine essays, most of which are signed "T.". Other contributors included Bonnell Thornton, Warton, Hester Mulso, George Coleman, and possibly Elizabeth Carter. It is also particularly interesting as a source of what little biographical information on Hawkesworth exists for, as John L. Abbott has shown, many of the pieces (particularly numbers 12 through 14 on "Opsinous") are strictly autobiographical in substance (John L. Abbott, 'John Hawkesworth,' Eighteenth-Century Studies, Spring 1970, p. 340).In its day, The Adventurer had a considerable success and was for example distinctly more popular than The Rambler, largely because Hawkesworth gave his audience the mixture of topics it wanted: 'an astute editor, Hawkesworth saw the folly of forcing too much criticism on a public among whom the tinsel of a burletta had more admirers than the gold of Shakespeare?' (Graham). The Adventurer is also still seen as a particularly useful text for its critical articles by Johnson as well as by Warton, who contributed twenty-four essays, ten of which 'contain notable criticism'. He reviewed Pope, 'wrote three papers on the Odyssey, two on the Tempest, one on Jewish poetry, one on Paradise Lost, one on the fragments of Menander, and two on King Lear. He thus helped to give The Adventurer a critical volume in excess of either The Spectator or The Rambler?' (Graham).This beautiful set comprises the first printings of the complete run of the 140 numbers of The Adventurer, published twice a week from 7 November 1752 until 9 March 1754. Bound up from the original numbers, it includes the corrected state of numbers 58, 84, and 137.

OUVRAGE ORNE DES FIGURES, PLANS ET CARTES NECESSAIRES. ET QUI CONTIENT UNE HISTOIRE DE YNCAS DU PEROU, ET LES OBSERVATIONS ASTRONOMIQUES & PHYSIQUES, FAITES POR DETERMINER LA FIGURE & LA GRANDEUR DE LA TERRE. 2 VOLUMES. Amsterdam & Liepzig: Arkstee & Merkus, 1752. First edition in French. [22], 554; 316, [6], 309, [3] pp. 4to., original gilt ruled calf, raised bands, gilt leather spine labels (title label detached, laid in for Vol. I). Originally published in Madrid in 1748. Two engraved frontispieces and 54 engraved maps, plans and views (on 53 leaves), most folding, in excellent condition. Marbled edges and endpapers. Joints cracked, leather worn, spines and corners chipped, ink annotation to top board of Volume I. Personal bookplates to pastedowns. Occasional pencil annotations. Plate VX in Vol. I has been hand-colored (volcano and aurora). Plate XXIX in Vol. II is annotated in colored pencil. Some plates are heavily offset; a few have a discreet owner's inkstamp to reverse, not showing through. Needs rebinding. Attached to a French expedition to South America organized by the Academie des Sciences, Ulloa and Juan were "two of the most scientific" officers of the Spanish Navy (Sabin); having discovered together the element platinum by 1744. The purpose of the trip was to measure the degree of longitude in the equatorial region of Peru. The second volume is largely devoted to the Incas and their culture. The work also contains the earliest reference to the "aurora australis." Verplanck Colvin's copy with his pencil notes. Verplanck Colvin (1847-1920) was a lawyer and topographical engineer whose understanding and appreciation for the environment of the Adirondack Mountains led to the creation of New York's Forest Preserve and the Adirondack Park.

        VOYAGE HISTORIQUE DE L'AMERIQUE MERIDIONALE FAIT PAR ORDRE DU ROI D'ESPAGNE

      Amsterdam & Leipzig: Arkste'e & Merkus, 1752. Two volumes. [22],554; [2],316,[6],[6],309,[3]pp., plus fifty-five plates and maps (most folding). Quarto. Contemporary speckled calf, spines gilt, leather labels. Hinges cracked, boards lightly worn and stained. Bookplates on front endpapers. Light scattered foxing and soiling. A good plus copy with nice wide margins. First French edition, after the original Spanish of 1747. Sabin lists the French language edition as published in Amsterdam and Leipzig, with the note: "Some copies of this French translation have the imprint, 'Paris: Charles Antoine Jombert, MDCCLII'; this has given rise to the idea that an edition was printed there, which is not the case; there is merely a change in the title. The translator was M. de Mauvillon." This voyage to Peru was undertaken due to the desire of the French government to send members of the Academy of Sciences to measure a degree of longitude in the equinoctial countries of Peru. To share in the honor the King of Spain sent along his two most scientific-oriented officers, Ulloa and Juan. The text is illustrated with handsome engraved plates and maps of the region and the inhabitants. Much of the second volume is devoted to the Incas and their customs. COX II, p.275. HILL 1740.

Very good copies, boards rubbed, spines worn with a small chip to the rebacking, scattered foxing, and a few of the later scientific plates browned, otherwise impressions quite sharp..

Engravings by Frans de Bakker, François Morellon La Cave, Jacob Folkema, Duflos, Title in red and black; engraved title vignettes. Translations by E. de Mauvillon of Ulloa's "Relacion historica del viage a la America Meridional," and of the companion work by Jorge Juan y Santacilia, entitled, "Observations astronomicas y physicas hechas de orden de S. Mag. en los reynos del Per?" (both published at Madrid in 1748); and of Garcilaso de la Vega's "Comentarios reales de los Incas." This copy with the Paris imprint, but Sabin argues it is just a change to the title page of the Arkste's & Merkus edition (Amsterdam et Leipzig) the same year. In 1735 the French Academy of Science requested permission to send an expedition to the equatorial regions of Spanish controlled South America in order for Charles de la Condamine and other French scientists to measure several degrees of meridian at the equator. By comparing their results with those obtained by a similar mission to Lapland, the Academie hoped to settle the controversy between the Newtonians and the Cartesians over whether the earth was flattened or elongated at the poles. Ulloa and Juan y Santacilia, Spain's best scientific officers, were sent along. Despite great difficulties, the expedition's geodetic measurements proved the validity of Newton's hypothesis. Antonio de Ulloa y de la Torre-Girault (1716 -1795) was later the first Spanish governor of Louisiana though he was deposed in 1768 after two years, during a creole revolt and also served as governor of Huancavelica in Peru.

        Notizia de' tempi de' principali fenomeni del cielo

      Florence: Viviani, 1752. FIRST EDITION. A large folding plate depicting a solar eclipse, woodcut initials, head- and tailpieces. Contemporary paste-boards. An excellent copy. First edition of Ximenes' astronomical observations according to Cassini's tables to determine the solar ecliptic longitude. This was Ximenes' first published work. His observations were recorded in Florence during the years 1752-1753 and described the solar eclipse of October 26, 1753 in twenty-two different European towns. The solar eclipse of 1753 Oct 26 was a rare hybrid solar eclipse in which the eclipse path starts out as annular; further down the track it changes to total and then back to annular before the path ends. Of interest, it was preceded two weeks earlier by a partial lunar eclipse on October 12, 1753. Ximenes (1716-1786) was an Italian mathematician, engineer, astronomer and geographer. In 1756, he founded the observatory of St. John in Florence (now named after him, the Ximenian Observatory). He is also known for having restored the fifteenth-century gnomon in the dome of Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence which he used to conduct his astronomical and physical observations. Rare; OCLC locates 1 copy in America (Oklahoma) and 3 copies in Italy.

Translated into English by Mr. Nugent. London: Printed for J. Nourse, 1752. [viii], 372 pp. Octavo (8" x 5"). Contemporary speckled calf, raised bands, letting piece and gilt ornaments to spine.

Early struck-through signature to head of title page, interior otherwise clean. $1,500. * First edition in English. The sequel to The Principles of Natural Law, his other major work, The Principles of Politic Law develops his thesis that international law is based on natural law and examines the principles of sovereignty with respect to considerations such as foreign rights, the necessity of war, the concept of absolute power, public treaties and economic factors. Burlamaqui, a Swiss jurist and professor of civil and natural law at Geneva, outlined a constitutional system based on principles similar to those of the American founding fathers. "Burlamaqui formulated the principles of popular sovereignty, of delegated power, of a constitution as a fundamental law, of a personal and functional separation of powers into three independent departments.and finally, he provided for an institutional guardian of the fundamental law" (Harvey). Burlamaqui's other great achievement was to put Pufendorf's theories into systematic form. Harvey, Jean Jacques Burlamaqui: A Liberal Tradition in American Constitutionalism 178-179.

        Sheet entitled:] 'An Astronomicall and Chronologicall Clock, shewing all the most usefull parts of an Almanack.' 'Io.S Naylor near Nantwich Cheshire.' [Sheet entitled:] 'An Astronomicall and Chronologicall Clock, shewing all the most usefull parts of an Almanack.' 'Io.S Naylor near Nantwich Cheshire.'

      Joseph Naylor, [c.1752]. - A previously unrecorded state of a rare promotional broadside for an astronomical clock Separately published broadside engraved map. John Naylor was one of an important school of clock-makers based in Nantwich, Cheshire, active from about 1725. By about 1740 he had relocated to London, and seems to have died there in 1752.It seems likely that, in about 1726, he designed a series of engraved metal plates that could be used to make a clock face, such as the example in the British Museum. In parallel, he must have published a second, near identical clock face, to be used as a promotional broadsheet for the clock, or as an instructional guide to the uses of the clock. While virtually identical, the promotional version has engraved hands over the face of the clock, so it could not be used to make up a working clock face, as the owner would have the mechanical, rotating hands and the engraved hands of the print.As he was principally a clockmaker, rather than a mapmaker, it is perhaps no surprise the geography is outdated. In fact, the cartography is largely based on John Carte’s astronomical clock of circa 1700; this would suggest that the engravings were first made in the early part of Naylor’s career, reinforced by the Nantwich address used, but no example of the broadsheet datable to this period has been traced and, until such an example has been found, this first state must be speculative (but likely).The British Museum has the first state of this promotional engraving, with the text at the top commencing “The explanation March the first 1725/6 .”, which was acquired with their example of the clock.The British Museum also has a second state of the complete promotional engraving, with the text at the top revised, with the text commencing “The explanation March the first 1750/1 .”, evidently published to coincide with, and capitalize on, the British change-over from the Julian to Gregorian calendar. The British Library example is of the clock only, lacking the Sun god engraving and text.This example is the third state, with the Christian name in the imprint revised from ‘Jo.n’ to ‘Jos.p’ ( John Naylor’s successor Joseph Naylor), apparently also in 1752, and with the hand of the various dials in the border re-aligned.Joseph Naylor seems not to have been a clock-maker, but seems to have inherited a finished clock. In time-honoured fashion, he planned a lottery to maximise his profit on the inheritance. There is an accompanying booklet to launch the lottery entitled ‘An explanation of an Astronomical Clock .’ and, presumably, he re-engraved the broadsheet at the same time. 629 by 385mm (24.75 by 15.25 inches). Map border: 125 by 126mm; clock: 351 by 355mm; frame: 375 by 382mm; Widest: 629 by 385mm.

Samtida stänkdekorerat skinnbd med upphöjda bind, svartpressad ryggdekor och beige titeletikett. Röd- och blåstänkta snitt. Något nött rygg. Pärmarna med några ytliga skrapskador.

Carl Hindrich König (1726-1804) var elev till stadsarkitekten i Stockholm Johan Eberhard Carlberg, som han efterträdde 1773. Han var ämnessven i Vetenskapsakademien 1745 och undervisade vid Carlbergs privata arkitektskola samt ska ha arbetat för Polhem. Boken "kan betraktas som en rådgivare för unga arkitekter i sådana väsentliga ting som t ex hållfasthetslära o materialkunskap" enligt "Svenskt biografiskt lexikon" som också nämner att i "de teoretiska avsnitten, stödjer K sin framställning på Blondels Cours d'architecture". Den del av verket som beskriver Polhems mekaniska uppfinningar tillkom som en följd av ett beslut i Vetenskapsakademien 1744 om att sprida kunskap rörande dessa. Tanken var att Augustin Ehrensvärd skulle ha överinseende över projektet.

Very good condition of the block. Needs new binding. Henry Coley (18 October 1633 – 30 April 1704) was an astrologer and mathematician, and amanuensis of William Lilly. Coley was born, as shown in an inscription round a portrait of him by Robert White, found in some of his works, on 18 October 1633 in Oxford. His father was a joiner. In 1648 he became a clerk in the Parliamentary army; in 1654 he moved to London and worked as a ladies' tailor in Gray's Inn Lane. In 1656 he married and they had one child; in 1660, after his wife's death, he married again; their son born in 1661 died soon after birth. He taught himself mathematics, astrology, Latin and French. From 1663 he lived in Baldwins Gardens, where he taught astrology and mathematics, and received clients. By the 1670s he had a flourishing practice. In 1669 he published Clavis Astrologiæ Elimata; or a Key to the whole Art of Astrology, new filed and polished. It was well received. A second and enlarged edition was published in 1676; it was dedicated to Elias Ashmole, and included a tribute by William Lilly. In 1672, following the success of Clavis, he published the first number of his almanac, and it appeared annually until his death. Coley acted as William Lilly's amanuensis from 1677, when the latter was stricken with the illness of which he eventually died. The editor of Lilly's Autobiography tells us: "His judgments and observations for the succeeding years till his death were all composed by his directions, Mr. Coley coming to Hersham the beginning of every summer, and stayed there till by conference with him he had despatched them for the press; to whom at these opportunities he communicated his way of judgment and other 'Arcana.'" Lilly constantly makes reference in his works to Coley's merit as a man and as a professor of mathematics and occult science. On his death in 1681, Lilly bequeathed to him his almanac Merlini Anglici Ephemeris, or Astrological Judgment for the Year, which had reached its thirty-sixth year of publication; from 1681 it was issued by Coley "according to the method of Mr. Lilly." After Lilly's death, Coley continued to publish his predictions, as for instance, The great and wonderful Predictions of that late famous Astrologer, William Lilly, Mr. Partridge, and Mr. Coley concerning this present year 1683. Coley attained considerable distinction as a mathematician: we are told by his almanac that he taught "arithmetic, vulgar, decimal, and logarithmical, geometry, trigonometry, astronomy, navigation, the use of the celestial and terrestrial globes, dialling, surveying, gaging, measuring, and the art of astrology in all its branches," at Baldwins Gardens. He corrected and enlarged Joseph Moxon's Mathematics made easy (London, 1692), and also William Forster's Arithmetic, or that useful art made easie (London, 1686). He died in London on 30 April 1704. (Wikipedia) William Lilly (11 May [O.S. 1 May] 1602 – 9 June 1681) has been described as "the most abused as well as the most celebrated astrologer of the seventeenth century". Born the son of a yeoman farmer in Leicestershire, Lilly travelled to London as a youth to take up a servant's position. Seven years later he secured his fortune by marrying his former master's widow, allowing him the leisure to study astrology. In 1644, during the English Civil War, he published the first of many popular astrological texts,and in 1647 he published Christian Astrology, a huge compendium of astrological technique. This was the first of its kind to be printed in the English language rather than Latin, and is said to have tutored "a nation in crisis in the language of the stars". By 1659, Lilly's fame was widely acknowledged and his annual almanac was achieving sales of around 30,000 copies a year. Lilly's autobiography, published towards the end of his life in 1681, at the request of his patron Elias Ashmole, gives candid accounts of the political events of his era, and biographical details of contemporaries that are unavailable elsewhere. It was described, in the late 18th century, as "one of the most entertaining narratives in our language", in particular for the historical portrayal it leaves of men like John Dee, Simon Forman, John Booker, Edward Kelley, including a whimsical first meeting of John Napier and Henry Briggs, respective co-inventors of the logarithm and Briggsian logarithms, and for its curious tales about the effects of crystals and the appearance of Queen Mab. In it, Lilly describes the friendly support of Oliver Cromwell during a period in which he faced prosecution for issuing political astrological predictions. He also writes about the 1666 Great Fire of London, and how he was brought before the committee investigating the cause of the fire, being suspected of involvement because of his publication of images, 15 years earlier, which depicted a city in flames surrounded by coffins. Lilly was a controversial character who was both aided and abetted by powerful friends and enemies. He attracted the attention of many members of Parliament, through the support of Sir Bulstrode Whitelocke, Lord Keeper of the Great Seal of England, (to whom he dedicated his Christian Astrology), but also accused Members of Parliament of engineering charges against him in 1651. To his supporters he was an "English Merlin"; to his detractors he was a "juggling wizard and imposter". He is described as having been a genius at something "that modern mainstream opinion has since decided cannot be done at all", and having developed his stature as the most important astrologer in England through his social and political involvement, as well as his impact on the astrological tradition. (William Lilly)

Henry Coley (18 October 1633 – 30 April 1704) was an astrologer and mathematician, and amanuensis of William Lilly.nColey was born, as shown in an inscription round a portrait of him by Robert White, found in some of his works, on 18 October 1633 in Oxford. His father was a joiner. In 1648 he became a clerk in the Parliamentary army; in 1654 he moved to London and worked as a ladies' tailor in Gray's Inn Lane. In 1656 he married and they had one child; in 1660, after his wife's death, he married again; their son born in 1661 died soon after birth. He taught himself mathematics, astrology, Latin and French. From 1663 he lived in Baldwins Gardens, where he taught astrology and mathematics, and received clients. By the 1670s he had a flourishing practice.nIn 1669 he published Clavis Astrologiæ Elimata; or a Key to the whole Art of Astrology, new filed and polished. It was well received. A second and enlarged edition was published in 1676; it was dedicated to Elias Ashmole, and included a tribute by William Lilly. In 1672, following the success of Clavis, he published the first number of his almanac, and it appeared annually until his death.nColey acted as William Lilly's amanuensis from 1677, when the latter was stricken with the illness of which he eventually died. The editor of Lilly's Autobiography tells us: "His judgments and observations for the succeeding years till his death were all composed by his directions, Mr. Coley coming to Hersham the beginning of every summer, and stayed there till by conference with him he had despatched them for the press; to whom at these opportunities he communicated his way of judgment and other 'Arcana.'"nnLilly constantly makes reference in his works to Coley's merit as a man and as a professor of mathematics and occult science. On his death in 1681, Lilly bequeathed to him his almanac Merlini Anglici Ephemeris, or Astrological Judgment for the Year, which had reached its thirty-sixth year of publication; from 1681 it was issued by Coley "according to the method of Mr. Lilly."nnAfter Lilly's death, Coley continued to publish his predictions, as for instance, The great and wonderful Predictions of that late famous Astrologer, William Lilly, Mr. Partridge, and Mr. Coley concerning this present year 1683. Coley attained considerable distinction as a mathematician: we are told by his almanac that he taught "arithmetic, vulgar, decimal, and logarithmical, geometry, trigonometry, astronomy, navigation, the use of the celestial and terrestrial globes, dialling, surveying, gaging, measuring, and the art of astrology in all its branches," at Baldwins Gardens. He corrected and enlarged Joseph Moxon's Mathematics made easy (London, 1692), and also William Forster's Arithmetic, or that useful art made easie (London, 1686). He died in London on 30 April 1704. (Wikipedia)nnWilliam Lilly (11 May [O.S. 1 May] 1602 – 9 June 1681) has been described as "the most abused as well as the most celebrated astrologer of the seventeenth century". Born the son of a yeoman farmer in Leicestershire, Lilly travelled to London as a youth to take up a servant's position. Seven years later he secured his fortune by marrying his former master's widow, allowing him the leisure to study astrology. In 1644, during the English Civil War, he published the first of many popular astrological texts,and in 1647 he published Christian Astrology, a huge compendium of astrological technique. This was the first of its kind to be printed in the English language rather than Latin, and is said to have tutored "a nation in crisis in the language of the stars". By 1659, Lilly's fame was widely acknowledged and his annual almanac was achieving sales of around 30,000 copies a year.nnLilly's autobiography, published towards the end of his life in 1681, at the request of his patron Elias Ashmole, gives candid accounts of the political events of his era, and biographical details of contemporaries that are unavailable elsewhere. It was described, in the late 18th century, as "one of the most entertaining narratives in our language", in particular for the historical portrayal it leaves of men like John Dee, Simon Forman, John Booker, Edward Kelley, including a whimsical first meeting of John Napier and Henry Briggs, respective co-inventors of the logarithm and Briggsian logarithms, and for its curious tales about the effects of crystals and the appearance of Queen Mab. In it, Lilly describes the friendly support of Oliver Cromwell during a period in which he faced prosecution for issuing political astrological predictions. He also writes about the 1666 Great Fire of London, and how he was brought before the committee investigating the cause of the fire, being suspected of involvement because of his publication of images, 15 years earlier, which depicted a city in flames surrounded by coffins.nnLilly was a controversial character who was both aided and abetted by powerful friends and enemies. He attracted the attention of many members of Parliament, through the support of Sir Bulstrode Whitelocke, Lord Keeper of the Great Seal of England, (to whom he dedicated his Christian Astrology), but also accused Members of Parliament of engineering charges against him in 1651. To his supporters he was an "English Merlin"; to his detractors he was a "juggling wizard and imposter". He is described as having been a genius at something "that modern mainstream opinion has since decided cannot be done at all", and having developed his stature as the most important astrologer in England through his social and political involvement, as well as his impact on the astrological tradition.

        (The Marine Counterparts to HomannÂ’s Elephant, Rhino and Crocodile Broadsides: the Whales, the Saw-Fish and the Narwhale). - Historia Animantium marinorum iconographica [...] Abbildliche Geschichte der See-Thiere, und zwar derselben I. besondere Vorstellung, in welcher die Walfische nach ihren Arthen, Figur [...] vor Augen gestellt werden. & II. Vorstellung, in welcher eine Art Walfische, nebst ihren zwey Feinden, dem Seege Fisch und Narwal zu sehen sind.

      Nuremburg, Homann Heirs, no date on first leaf, the second dated 1752.. Handcoloured copper engraved broadsides. I. 20.5 x 23.5 inches, II. 19.5 x 21 inches. Professionally restored and laid down on old paper for the purpose of reenforcing the fragile paper structure. Some previous storage folds still visible but undisturbing, some light browning to paper in places. First edition, very rare. – Nissen, ZBI 1990. Together with the three separately published broadsides on terrestial animals (elephant, rhino and crocodile – see Nissen, ZBI 1989 for the rhino) which were grouped under the collective title ‘Abbildliche Geschichte der ausländischen LandthiereÂ’, the offered broadsides, published separately as well, form their marine counterparts. They illustrate the natural history of some species of whales and other curious marine animals and were directed to an audience which on the one hand – at least in Central Europe – neither had the chance to see these animals in nature nor in travelling menageries or game reserves, but on the other hand was well aware of them because of body parts and sometimes even whole skelletons were commonly kept in pharmacies, kunstkammers and natural cabinets. While these naturalia so oftenly became part of an exotic-folklore phantasy, HomannÂ’s broadsides were one of the first attempts to provide a scientifically more accurate knowledge of them to the wider public.

        Africa Performed by the Sr. Danville Under the Patronage of the Duke of Orleans

      - Wall map. Engraving with original outline color. Linen backed. Image measures 38.5 x 37.5 inches. This beautiful large scale map of Africa is from Malachy Postlethwayt's The Universal Dictionary of Trade and Commerce and represents the glory days of British colonialism and seamanship. Comments are in a conversational format throughout the map. For example, a comment near Ascension Island in the Atlantic says that it was a place English mariners left their letters in corked bottles. Edition is undetermined; there were four official editions of Trade and Commerce: 1752, 1755, 1766, 1774. Engraved by Emanuel Bowen. Good condition but original color outlining is faint. Mounted on linen. The obscure 18th century cartographer Mr. Bolton may also be referred to as Solomon and this is one of the maps Tooley's attributes to him.
