      Paul Emanuel Richters, Altenburg 1753 - Quarto. [8],xxviii,[4],104 pp. plus six folding plates. In German.

Spine and nearly all leather perished, joints cracked. 2 x 2 cm. square excision in front free endpaper. Very light occasional foxing, else near fine internally. Overall good. The German translation of Robert Nesbitt's best known work, HUMAN OSTEOGENY EXPLAINED IN TWO LECTURES, first published in London in 1736. Robert Nesbitt (1697-1761) trained at Leiden University under Bernhardus Albinus the Elder (1653-1721) and Herman Boerhaave, the "Dutch Hippocrates" (1668-1738). An Englishman, Nesbitt returned to London after his studies and commenced his medical career; he was admitted as a fellow to the College of Physicians in 1729. The present work comprises two lectures he delivered at the Anatomical Theatre of the Surgeons of London in 1731, in which he demonstrated, for the first time, that bones in the human fetus were generated in both cartilage and membrane. The illustrations on six folding leaves, here engraved by Johann Christian Gottfried Fritzsch (ca. 1720 - 1802), were the first accurately to show the full course of human bone genesis. This edition scarce, with OCLC recording nine copies (all in Europe). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

His long career as Hydrographer and Ingénieur Hydrographe at the French Dépôt des cartes et plans de la Marine resulted in hundreds of high quality nautical charts of practically everywhere in the world. Depot des Cartes et Plans de la Marine (1720 - present), often called the Depot de Marine, was a French hydrographic mapping organization founded in 1720. Much like the U.S. Coast Survey, the British Admiralty, and the Spanish Deposito Hydrografico, the Depot was initiated as a storehouse and distribution center of existing nautical and marine charts. Eventually the Depot initiated its on mapping activities in an attempt to improve and expand upon existing material. Some of the well known hydrograhers / cartographers in the development of Depot were Jacques Nicholas Bellin and Rigobert Bonne. Good, given age. Original middle fold, as issued.

         Virgidemarum. Satires in Six Books.

      Very Good +. Oxford, printed for R. Clements, 1753. In-12, [ii; xii; half-title, verso blank; prologue; pages 13 -108; 2 final blanks]. Brackets drawn on a few lines on pages 55 and 67. Complete. Contemporary calf with gilt decoration, marbled end-papers. The first three books of tooth-lesse satires, attacking institutions, were published in 1597, with reprints in 1598 and 1602, and the last three of byting satires, attacking individuals under pseudonyms which were probably no disguise to Halls contemporaries, in 1598 and 1599. Hall claimed these were the first satires in the English language to have taken Juvenal for a model. They gave much offense, and an attempt was made to have them all burned. The British Library copy of this title has a manuscript note saying the editor of this (1753) edition was William Thompson of Queens College, Oxford. Bookplates of Frances (with coronet and shelf mark) and Stuart Bennett. Ownership signature of Sam. Gillam. Eighteenth century mottled calf, marbled endpapers.

         The Ruins of Palmyra, otherwise Tedmor, in the Desart.

      [for the author], London 1753 - Imperial folio (547 x 370 mm). [6], 50 pp. With 3 full-page engravings of inscriptions in text and 57 full-page engraved plates numbered I-LVII, including folding panoramic plate I assembled in 3 folding sheets. Contemporary full calf, foliated border decoration to board margins in gold, spine with 7 raised bands and lettered in gilt (old rebacking, leather rubbed, wear to extremities, corners scuffed, inner hinges reinforced), marbled endpapers. Only little browning throughout, title with light overall spotting, occasional light marginal spotting elsewhere. Bookplate to front pastedown removed. A fine, wide-margined copy. ---- Cohen-de Ricci 916; Fowler 443; Harris 939. FIRST EDITION OF THIS IMPORTANT SOURCE ON THE RECENTLY-DESTROYED MONUMENTS OF PALMYRA. Wood's work was of profound import for architects in Georgian Britain, and may well prove to be of renewed importance in the years ahead, as Palmyra was reduced virtually to rubble by Islamic State forces in August 2015. The plates imaginatively restore the ruins of Palmyra to their former glory, but Wood also includes several views of the dilapidated columns and arches in situ. The first plate was intended to form a panorama some 1.5 m long. "No such meticulous and handsome archaeological work had yet appeared in the English language, and the nation could feel proud to have a worthy competitor for the lavish folios produced in France and Italy" (RIBA). Unlike earlier antiquarian works, Wood measured and recorded proportions of columns and remnants of friezes and ceilings - a pioneering approach that influenced British and French architects throughout the 18th century. The plates were engraved by Pierre Fourdrinier, Thomas Major and J. S. Muller, Jr., after drawings by J. B. Borra, the Italian architect who accompanied Wood and James Dawkins on their tour of Asia Minor in 1750-51.This is one of two issues recorded in the ESTC - this with "Page 9.l.26. for emperor's, read emperors." - Visit our website for additional images and information.

         Nieuwe kaart van het Oostelykste Deel der Weereld.

      Isaak Tirion, Amsterdam 1753 - Handcoloured map measuring 360 x 490 mm. (sheet size); mounted, fine. A colourful and attractive eighteenth-century Dutch map of the Old World, Africa, Asia and Australasia. Interestingly, it depicts the Australian continent connected to the landmass of New Guinea - an archaism given that Abel Tasman proved the two lands distinct and separate in 1643, some 110 years prior to the publication of this map. Ironically, a large river flowing from the deep interior of the continent into the Gulf of Carpenteria is named 'Abel Tasman's R.' Also discovered and named by Tasman, Van Diemen's land (being present-day Tasmania) is also notably absent and the entire south-eastern mass of the continent is approximated in dotted lines stretching to the extreme south. As was conventional of the era, present day Western Australia is labelled New Holland, and the landfalls of principal eighteenth-century Dutch voyagers are noted.The Amsterdam based publisher Isaak Tirion (1705-1769) is known to have produced books, charts and maps for the Dutch mercantile elite. Tirion was primarily a cartographic publisher, who issued several lavish atlases as well as smaller geographical guides (literally 'Hand Atlas'), from which this attractive map is derived. During his prolific career Tirion was associated with the Dutch East India Company; in 1757 Willem Udemans, a shipwright and director of the VOC shipyard at Middelburg commissioned Tirion to print a treatise on naval architecture. He also published a Dutch language edition of Commodore Anson's circumnavigation in 1749, a work remarkable for the quality of its maps and charts.

         A Clear State of the Case of Elizabeth Canning, Who Hath Sworn That She Was Robbed and Almost Starved to Death by a Gang of Gipsies and Other Villains in January Last, for Which One Mary Squires Now Lies Sentence of Death

      A. Millar, London 1753 - First edition, this with p. 4, l. 3 beginning "to require" [ii], 62 pp. 8vo. A Canningite vs an Egyptian. First edition of Fielding's defense of his conduct in the notorious case of Elizabeth Canning, a young woman who alleged she was kidnapped and held captive by the gypsy Mary Squires and brothel keeper Susannah Wells. Canning was to be forced into prostitution but managed her escape after a month of dismal confinement. Despite inconsistencies in Canning's testimony, the fact that Squires had an alibi, and that the chief witness for the prosecution, the prostitute Virtue Hall, recanted her testimony, Squires and Wells were convicted, with Squires sentenced to death. The controversy generated a large number of pamphlets, books, broadsides and prints, and it divided London into the Canningites and the Egyptians (who sided with the gypsy Mary Squires). Fielding, who was chief magistrate and intimately involved in the investigation, came under attack for his close ties to the prosecution.

         A Clear State of the Case of Elizabeth Canning, Who Hath Sworn That She Was Robbed and Almost Starved to Death by a Gang of Gipsies and Other Villains in January Last, for Which One Mary Squires Now Lies Sentence of Death

      London: A. Millar, 1753. First edition, this with p. 4, l. 3 beginning "to require". [ii], 62 pp. 8vo. Uncut, in remboîtage of contemporary half calf and marbled boards, morocco spine label. Joints rubbed, title trimmed at bottom margin, some pale spotting. First edition, this with p. 4, l. 3 beginning "to require" [ii], 62 pp. 8vo. A Canningite vs an Egyptian. First edition of Fielding's defense of his conduct in the notorious case of Elizabeth Canning, a young woman who alleged she was kidnapped and held captive by the gypsy Mary Squires and brothel keeper Susannah Wells. Canning was to be forced into prostitution but managed her escape after a month of dismal confinement. Despite inconsistencies in Canning's testimony, the fact that Squires had an alibi, and that the chief witness for the prosecution, the prostitute Virtue Hall, recanted her testimony, Squires and Wells were convicted, with Squires sentenced to death. The controversy generated a large number of pamphlets, books, broadsides and prints, and it divided London into the Canningites and the Egyptians (who sided with the gypsy Mary Squires). Fielding, who was chief magistrate and intimately involved in the investigation, came under attack for his close ties to the prosecution. It was even alleged in the anonymous pamphlet The case of Elizabeth Canning Fairly Stated (1753) that Fielding was paid by Canning supporters to coerce Virtue Hall's testimony. Crisp Gascoygne, Lord Mayor of London, was not content with the handling of the case and reopened the investigation, leading to Canning's arrest and conviction for perjury and the pardoning of Squires.

BRUXELLIS chez Vleminks, et PARISIIS chez HERISSANT, 11 ff., 44 p. 827 p. - Zeger Bernhard van Espen (en latin Espenius) (Louvain, 9 juillet 1646 - Amersfoort, Pays-Bas, 2 octobre 1728). - Défenseur passionné des théories gallicanes concernant les droits de l'autorité religieuse et du pouvoir civil. Il a exalté et combattu à leur tour tous les pouvoirs, le pouvoir civil compris. Il insistait sur le pouvoir des évêques pour diminuer celui des ordres religieux, et sur les droits d'un chapitre dissous pour combattre les pouvoirs du Pape. Il s'attira un fâcheux renom dans les querelles jansénistes, en niant l'importance de la célèbre distinction entre le droit et le fait à l'égard la doctrine de Jansénius. LA MEILLEURE EDITION DES TRAVAUX de Van Espen, qui tous sont à l'Index, est celle qui a été publiée en quatre volumes à Louvain en 1753. Un cinquième volume, SUPPLEMENTUM ad varias collectiones operum, a été publié à Bruxelles en 1768 et contient de nombreux détails biographiques. - La querelle janséniste causa sa ruine. Ayant été consulté par les Jansénistes des Pays-Bas quant à la consécration de l'évêque janséniste d'Utrecht, Cornelius Steenoven, il en reconnut la légitimité, alors qu'elle s'était faite sans l'autorisation du Saint-Siège. On tenta de justifier la conduite de Van Espen dans cette affaire, au motif qu'il avait simplement déclaré que l'ordination épiscopale exécutée par un seul évêque simple était valide. Mais la question n'était pas là : il s'agissait de savoir si on pouvait admettre une consécration épiscopale, faite sans le consentement du pape. Son attitude dans cette affaire ainsi que ses opinions jansénistes amenèrent l'archevêque de Malines à le suspendre a divinis. Il le convoqua pour exiger de lui une déclaration de foi orthodoxe. Sur l'ordre du pouvoir civil, l'Université de Louvain condamna Van Espen et, en 1728, le priva de son enseignement à l'université. Sans attendre il avait fui et il se réfugia d'abord à Maastricht puis à Amersfoort, où la communauté janséniste le prit sous sa protection, c'est là qu'il mourut. L'augustin Bernardus Désirant (1656-1725), professeur à l'Université de Louvain, fut accusé d'avoir fabriqué de faux documents dans la controverse contre Van Espen (la « Falsification de Louvain »). Désirant fut condamné par les autorités universitaires et banni pour toujours de son pays natal. Mots clés : [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
