[DUTCH CALVINIST CARICATURE]. [Hieronymus SWEERTS].
De vergelykinge Christi met de Roomsche Paus, by forme van een stichtelyke, en leerzame samenspraak, voor de liefhebbers der waarheid.Amsterdam, Jan van der Heyden, 1753. 1mo (full sheet) broadside (48,5 x 29 cm). Letterpress satirical broadside, with an anonymous, hand-coloured engraving, the title and imprint in red, 2 woodcut decorated initials, and a band of typographic ornaments separating the two columns of text. Rare and popular Dutch Calvinist satirical poem, illustrated at the head with an engraving showing the humble Christ riding a donkey facing the luxuriously dressed pope riding a luxuriously caparisoned horse. The engraving has its own title and text in the foot margin of the plate: "Vergelycking van Christus en de Paus" with a poem in two columns of 5 and 4 lines, each line with a rhyming couplet comparing the "Heer" (the Lord, meaning Jesus) with the "Knegt" (the servant, meaning the Pope, who is supposed to serve Christ but acts as though he is higher and is therefore the anti-Christ, as noted in the final couplet. The Dutch printer, author and engraver Hieronymus Sweerts wrote this poem. The letterpress text below the engraving is a poem in a similar vein, also in two columns, but reading across rather than down the columns. The left column has 50 numbered lines, each with a short biblical text (each preceded by the biblical reference), presented as Christ telling the reader what he says or does (though some in fact come from the Old Testament). The right column, presented as the words of the Pope and rhyming with the words of Christ, says he does just the … [Click Below for Full Description]

S.l., 1753, pl. veau marbré époque, dos orné, coiffes anciennement restaurées, bon exemplaire. Edition originale rare de ce "petit livre très curieux et si habillement fermé..." dont le titre singulier, selon l'alchimiste Fulcanelli, est "un assemblage de l'anagramme et du calembour... qu'il faut lire Alcmie ou la crème d'Aum. Les néophytes apprendront que c'est là un véritable traité d'alchimie, ... que le point de science révélé par l'auteur se rapporte à l'extraction de l'esprit enclos dans la matière première, ou vierge philosophique, qui porte le même signe que la Vierge céleste; qu'enfin cette extraction doit se faire par un procédé analogue à celui qui permet de séparer la crème du lait, ce qu'enseignent d'ailleurs Basile Valentin, Tollius et Philalèthe ... et le Liber Mutus... Tiphaigne de la Roche, à peu près inconnu, fut cependant l'un des plus savants adeptes du XVIII° siècle. Dans un autre traité intitulé Giphantie... il décrit parfaitement le procédé photographique..." ¶ Fulcanelli Demeures philosophales I. 108 - Pour Versins (Encyclop. utopie p.888) il est question dans ce traité "d'enseignements scientifiques sous couvert d'une fiction" - Soboul (Utopies n°27) y voit "un songe fantastique d'inspiration anti-matérialiste" - Hartig & Soboul, p. 54.

The theolodite is shown again in the first plate in the text, and other plates show its use for measuring height, distance, depth, etc. in a wide variety of circumstances, both on land and aboard a ship.

Contemporary decorated paper wrappers, preserved in half cloth chemise and matching slipcase. [28], 96 pp. Extremely rare first edition of a list of Dutch data concerning the whaling trade in and around Greenland, compiled by Gerrit van Sante (1728-1779). The book was designed with blank spance to add new data in the years following 1753. The present copy has been updated, probably by the first owner, till the year 1761. Besides the names of the commanders for every Dutch voyage to Greenland and the Davis Strait and the names of the directors for whom they sailed, it also includes an annual record of the number of whales caught, tonnes of blubber and barrels of whale oil, both for each commander individually and for the industry as a whole. "Van Sante understood completely the enormous economic importance of whaling for the Netherlands, and mentions the results of every voyage of every ship" (Catalogue library of G.J. Honig). "Greenland" is broadly interpreted to include the waters around Spitsbergen and Jan Mayen Island, and the Davis Strait fleets (fishing between Greenland and America) are not separately recorded until 1719.

[8], 106 pp. Third edition of the very rare Dutch translation a work on freemasonry by the former freemason Thomas Wolson, revealing the secrets of the masonry rites and rituals. Wolson starts with the origin and history of the brotherhood, and narrates his own experiences as a freemason: the inauguration oaths and rituals, speeches by other freemasons, meals at lodges etc. Of particular interest are Wolson's descriptions and illustrations of various (secret) symbols, the freemason's alphabet, the attributes which can be found in a lodg and the interior of the temple. Instead of depicting the freemasonry of its day, the illustrations curiously enough formed the origin and the basis for actual and practical use of the alphabet and several ceremonies in the following centuries.Paper wrappers damaged on spine and corners dog-eared. Many leaves dog-eared, edges somewhat frayed, and some occasional stains. Overall a good copy, wholly untrimmed. STCN (1 copy & 1 of the 2nd ed.); WorldCat (4 other copies).

The present copy comes from the library of the dedicatee Louis-Philippe d'Orléans (1725-1785) and has his arms on its attractive gold-tooled binding. Although the binding is not signed, it was very likely made by Jean-Charles-Henri Lemonnier, documented as bookbinder to the Duc d'Orléans in 1759.The work explains a method of teaching music based on the "bureau typographique" (the typographic office), a visual and mnemonic game that Louis Dumas had invented earlier, in the 1730's, to teach children French and Latin. Based on this scheme, L'art de la musique proposes and explains the principles of music according to three … [Click Below for Full Description]

1753. 4to, pp. [14], v, [1] blank, 78, [2], advertisement on final leaf for the second edition of Price's 'The British Carpenter', verso blank; with woodcut headpieces and initials, and 14 engraved plates, an unnumbered plate at p. 1, signed 'F. Price delin. 1753. P. Fourdrinier Sculp'' and Plates 1-13 by Foudrinier after Price, variously dated 1738, 1746, 1747 and 1748 (the first folding); lightly browned throughout, final blank leaf detached, fore-edge a little frayed; First edition of this attractively illustrated analysis of the architecture of Salisbury Cathedral, regarded as being 'the first serious architectural study of a Gothic building. It is the result of a general survey that he began in 1738 after being appointed clerk of works to the cathedral. From his investigations he was able not only to carry out necessary repairs but, more interesting, to date parts of the vaulting, to note and explain various structural peculiarities, to prove that the tower and spire were not originally intended, and thereby, to make a significant contribution to the building's history.' (Harris, p. 375). Price (ca. 1704-1753) was Surveyor at Salisbury Cathedral from 1737 until his death, and the work was the result of a major survy undertaken by him at the request of Bishop Sherlock (to whom the book is dedicated), and, as such, it forms the basis of many subsequent accounts. Price says in his preface that he first became acquainted with the building 16 years earlier and it was only published 3 months before his death. The fine plates after Price's drawings show the dates of the surve … [Click Below for Full Description]

Joseph-Bernard de Chabert de Cogolin followed family tradition when he entered the navy as a midshipman in July 1741. After several voyages in the Mediterranean, where he displayed an interest in science and a talent for drawing charts that brought him to the attention of the minister of Marine, he was appointed sub-section leader of midshipmen and posted to Brest. In 1746 he made two voyages to reconnoiter the coasts of Acadia and correct the defectiveness of French charts. While in the frigate Castor he drew a chart of the roads and harbor of the Baie de Chibouctou (Halifax harbor), and later the same year he was sent in the Sirène to reconnoiter the harbor at Annapolis Royal and spy out the British ships anchored there. The next spring he joined Jacques-Pierre de Taffanel de La Jonquière's squadron in the Gloire and was taken prisoner by the British during the battle off Cape Ortegal, Spain. After repatriation Chabert was promoted ensign in April 1748 and retained in Paris by the minister, who wanted him to learn astronomy in order to instruct naval officers. Two years later he was chosen to go to Île Royale (Cape Breton Island) and continue his survey of the shores of Acadia. His expedition was organized by Roland-Michel Barrin* de La Galissonière, then head of … [Click Below for Full Description]

WOLSON (WILSON), Thomas.
De metselaar ontmomd, of het rechte geheim der vrye metselaren ontdekt, in allen deele oprechtelyk en zonder achterhouding, door een gewezen vryen metselaar. ... Derde druk.Arnhem, Jacob Nijhoff, 1753. 8vo (16.5 x 10 cm). With a woodcut freemasonry device on title-page and 3 folding engraved plates. Contemporary marbled paper wrappers. [8], 106 pp. Third edition of the very rare Dutch translation a work on freemasonry by the former freemason Thomas Wolson, revealing the secrets of the masonry rites and rituals. Wolson starts with the origin and history of the brotherhood, and narrates his own experiences as a freemason: the inauguration oaths and rituals, speeches by other freemasons, meals at lodges etc. Of particular interest are Wolson's descriptions and illustrations of various (secret) symbols, the freemason's alphabet, the attributes which can be found in a lodg and the interior of the temple. Instead of depicting the freemasonry of its day, the illustrations curiously enough formed the origin and the basis for actual and practical use of the alphabet and several ceremonies in the following centuries.Paper wrappers damaged on spine and corners dog-eared. Many leaves dog-eared, edges somewhat frayed, and some occasional stains. Overall a good copy, wholly untrimmed. STCN (1 copy & 1 of the 2nd ed.); WorldCat (4 other copies).

"Perhaps the first extended non-fiction prose satire written by an English woman, Jane Collier'sAn Essay on the Art of Ingeniously Tormentingis a wickedly satirical send-up of eighteenth-century advice manuals and educational tracts. It takes the form of a mock advice manual in which the speaker instructs her readers in the arts of tormenting, offering advice on how to torment servants, humble companions and spouses, and on how to bring one's children up to be a torment to others. The work's satirical style, which focuses on the different kinds of power that individuals exercise over one another, follows in the footsteps of Jonathan Swift and paves the way for Jane Austen" (Bilger). For Collier, the art of tormenting is ultimately one of reclaiming authority in domestic spaces and relationships, reminding women that misogynistic commonplaces can be reversed into empowerment, and that anti-feminists should beware with what qualities they imbue women lest women use them to advantage.

Born to an Italian-Jewish family, he donated large sums of money to promote industry, business, economic development, education and health among the Jewish community in the Levant, including the found of Miskenot Sha'ananim in 1860, the first settlement of the New Yishuv. As president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, his correspondence with the British consul in Damascus Charles Henry Churchill in 1841-42 is seen as pivotal to the development of Proto-Zionism.
