OSORIO, JerÛnimo
London,: A. Millar,, 1752.. Two volumes, octavo, contemporary mottled calf, joints cracked but the sides firmly held, spine labels renewed. First English edition. Osorio, often described as the "Portuguese Cicero", chronicled the reign of King Manuel I of Portugal (1495-1521), during which the sea route to India was discovered and the foundations of empire laid in Africa, Asia and America. The Latin original appeared in 1571. There were several foreign editions and translations, but the book did not appear in Portuguese itself until 1804. Osorio 'was born in Lisbon and studied at Salamanca, Paris, and Bologna. He became an official in India, private secretary to the infante Luis, held many high positions in the Church, and was eventually made Bishop of Silves, and later of Evora. The earl of Essex, during his raid into southern Portugal in 1596, captured Osorio's fine library, which he later presented to the Bodleian Library, where the books still remain, Osorio's book details the explorations, expeditions, and embassies under the reign of King Manuel of Portugal... included are the accomplishments of Cortereal, Vasco da Gama, Magellan, Cabral, and de Lemes...' (Hill catalogue).OsÛrio's history 'was the book about the discoveries most widely read in the rest of Europe... Outside of Portugal his reputation was made by his chronicle. Montaigne in 1588 referred to him as "the best Latin historian of our century"' (Lach II/2 pp. 139-45).Borba de Moraes, p. 638; Hill, 1270; Mendelssohn (1979) III, p. 604.

Mag. en los reynos del Perù" (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.

DUHAMEL DU MONCEAU, Henri-Louis
Paris,: Charles Antoine Jombert, 1752.. Quarto, frontispiece, title-page vignette; a very good copy in contemporary mottled calf, front hinge worn. A beautiful first edition of this landmark in the development of naval architecture.This study distilled the French naval engineer Duhamel's years of experience into a well-organised manual, and was 'the first training manual for aspiring naval constructors ever produced' (James Pritchard, "From Shipwright to Naval Constructor", Technology and Culture, 28:1, p. 16). Duhamel was responsible for instilling a belief in best practice rather than simple routine, with the result that this is an important work of nascent engineering, concerned with obtaining the best results within the practical constraints of their trade.The mid-eighteenth century marked the zenith of early French naval construction, a period when the design of their warships was much envied and much copied (it is telling that the British regularly converted prizes into flagships). Especially in the second quarter of the eighteenth century, French shipwrights went through a period which saw many major innovations, and this study was the signature work.Duhamel had initially been involved with detailed studies of specific questions such as the prevention of dry rot, the manufacture of rope, or the conservation of water at sea. His pursuit of answers to such questions led him to England and Holland, as well as French arsenals and their India Company at Lorient. It was Duhamel who bucked the trend of increasingly theoretical works, and he was behind the founding of elemen … [Click Below for Full Description]

Osorio, Jerome; James Gibbs
London: A. Millar, 1752. ...of those Countries, and a particular Account of the Religion, Government, and Customs of the Natives. Including also, Their Discovery of the Brazils, and Their Wars with the Moors. Gibbs' scarce English version of Osorio's important history of Portuguese exploration, featuring Vasco da Gama, Magellan, Cabral, Albuquerque, and others. Osorio was well-regarded in his day as a stylist of Latin, earning the sobriquet 'the Portuguese Cicero'. First edition in English. Two volumes bound in period brown calf, red leather labels. Worn & frayed, hinges cracked but sound, heads of spines chipped, part of the label of volume two missing; catalogue clipping describing the set pasted inside front cover of volume 1, ink name & date (Nov. [19]43) in each volume, minor damage to endsheets, pencilled bookseller's notes inside rear, bookseller's label in rear of each volume; some staining to early/late pages; bookplate in volume one (see below), evidence of bookplate removal in volume two. Interesting provenance: volume one bears an armorial bookplate of severe simplicity: a blackletter 'E' under an Earl's coronet of five pearls - no doubt were one of sufficient breeding one would know exactly who that was. There were, as far as we can tell, three Earls 'E': Essex, Exeter & Euston. Essex was known to use an 'SX' sigil, but not necessarily exclusively; interestingly, it was Essex who carried off Osorio's extensive library when he sacked Faro in 1596, much of which ended up at the Bodleian; perhaps a later Essex completed the circle when he acquired Osorio' … [Click Below for Full Description]

SAVARY, Jacques (1622-1690). -
Genève, Cramer & Philibert, 1752-1750.2 voll. in 1 + 4 voll. In-folio. Uniformi legature coeve in pergamena rigida, titolo impr. in oro sui dorsi. I: Con una tav. f.t. (20), 529 pp.; (24), 392 (recte 394) pp. II: (8), XLIV pp., 1310 col.; (4) pp., 1636 col.; (4) pp., 1406 col.; (4) pp., 1228 col., 31, (61) pp.; piccoli forellini di tarlo nel dorso di un volume e nei margini dei primi fogli di un altro; occasionali ingialliture ed alcuni fogli un po' arrossati; buon esemplare in solide legature coeve. Jacques Savary fu uno dei maggiori economisti francesi del '600. Per le sue capacità venne incaricato da Colbert di partecipare alla stesura di un nuovo codice commerciale, il noto "Codice Savary" (1673). La sua opera più famosa, ?Le parfait négociant?, apparve nel 1675. Anche il figlio Jacques Savary des Bruslons fu un economista assai apprezzato; lasciò una gran quantità di appunti per il ?Dictionnaire universel de commerce?, raccolti dal fratello Philemon-Louis Savary (1654-1727) e pubblicati postumi (1723). Il dizionario, il primo nel suo genere, riguarda il sistema bancario, l?industria, le assicurazioni, il diritto, la contabilità, la pesca, la navigazione, il trasporto, la storia ecc. Le due opere ebbero un notevole successo e vennero più volte pubblicate separatamente, ma in questa stimata edizione, rivista, corretta e notevolmente aumentata, dovrebbero trovarsi unite. Cf.

MARTYN, J.
Nürnberg, gedruckt bey Andreas Bieling, 1752. Folio (495 x 350mm). pp. (6), 24, with 50 colour-printed mezzotint plates finished by hand. Contemporary half calf, spine in 7 compartments with floral gilt ornaments and red gilt lettered label, speckled boards. Very scarce German edition of Martyn's famous botanical work first published London 1728. The plates were re-engraved by Meyer but closely copied from the originals of Jacob van Huysum. The text is in Latin and German. The 1728 edition is the first botanical book illustrated with colour-printed plates. It is devoted to new species growing at the Chelsea Physic Garden and the Cambidge Botanic Garden, some of which had been brought from the Caribbean region by Dr. William Houston. Dunthorne calls the book 'a rather amazing item', because its plates are printed in colour in an early form of mezzotint. 'The work is of particular interest as it contains some of the earliest examples of colour-printing from a single metal plate... Many of the prints in the 'Historia' are printed in green but some are printed in two or more colours from a single plate at one impression. All were afterwards touched by hand' (Henrey II, p. 53). Most of the plates are after Jacob van Huysum, a flower painter born at Amsterdam. He worked in England from about 1721 and was the brother of the famous Dutch flower painter Jan van Huysum. The plates depict plants from Cape of Good Hope (a few Pelargosiums and a Mesem), North America and the West Indies. The titlepage shorter but from this copy. Nissen BBI 1290; Stafleu & Cowan 5563.

First edition, very rare with all six supplements present, of this detailed account of French theatre up to the middle of the eighteenth century. The supplements, which were published separately over the course of six years, are very rarely present. Here they are collected with a general title page, dated 1763, published 'at the expense of the author', and bound in a fine 'theatrical' binding. The Tablettes dramatiques are a most valuable source for the history of French theatre, covering first the history of the theatre, the history of the foundation of specific theatres, an inventory of plays performed or printed for the period 1552 to 1752, with critical commentary, and finally a biographical dictionary of authors and actors. The supplements generally follow the same format and give information on new plays, a performance calendar for the period in question, details of ballets, and biographical information on new emerging actors. A fascinating overview of French or more specifically Parisian theatre history, documenting the transition from medieval theatre to the highly organised and politicised drama up to the midd … [Click Below for Full Description]

Due volumi in-16° (cm 16,6x9,9), pp. (22), 1-432; (2), 433-932, legatura coeva in piena pelle con fregi in oro e titoli su tassello al dorso, guardie marmorizzate, tagli spruzzati. All'antiporta di entrambi i volumi una tavola allegorica. Sedici tavole fuori testo più volte ripiegate al primo volume, (tavole I-XVI), tredici tavole fuori testo, anch'esse più volte ripiegate, al secondo (tavole XVII-XXIX): le tavole illustrano, in prevalenza, gli strumenti scientifici utilizzati per i vari esperimenti descritti. Alcuni segni d'uso e del tempo alla legatura: segnaliamo in particolare piccole spellature ai piatti e alcune fenditure alle cerniere dovute appunto all'utilizzo, fenditure che, comunque, non pregiudicano la solidità della legatura. Bruniture e arrossature ai facicoli da A ad L (pp. 1-264) del solo primo volume, dovute al tipo di carta utilizzata. Timbro di bilioteca privata al secondo foglio di guardia di entrambi i volumi. Si tratta della prosecuzione, del tutto autonoma, aggiornata ai risultati delle ultime ricerche, dell'opera enciclopedica Science des personnes de cour, d'épée et de robe, commencée par Mr. De Chevigni, continuée par Mr. De Limiers, revue, corrigée et considerablement augmentee par Mr. Pierre Massuet, Docteur en Médecine, uscita in 7 tomi, divisi in diciotto volumi, nel 1752 presso lo stesso Chatelain. Il primo proprietario dell'esemplare in nostro possesso fece rilegare, con tutta probabilità, i due volumi assieme ai 18 della Science des personnes de cour del 1752: il legatore, anziché considerarli la prosecuzione, l'aggiornamento dell'opera enci … [Click Below for Full Description]
