We also provide information on outstanding botanical explorers and collectors" (introduction).In very good condition, only some minor rubbing to the ends of the spine, and volume 1 and 2 are subtly rebound (still matching the other volumes), with the original backstrips laid down.

        A NEW AND EXACT MAP OF THE ISLAND OF ST. CHRISTOPHER IN AMERICA, ACCORDING TO AN ACTUAL AND ACCURATE SURVEY MADE IN THE YEAR 1753. DESCRIBING THE PARISHES WITH THEIR RESPECTIVE LIMITS, CONTENTS, & CHURCHES, ALSO THE HIGH WAYS, THE SITUATION OF EVERY GENTLEMAN'S PLANTATION.

      London. [1753]. - 4 folio sheets, each approximately 24 x 30 inches, and approximately 48 x 60 inches overall. Original hand coloring of borders. Minor wear and a few short closed tears at edges. Light tanning and scattered faint foxing. Very good. A remarkable example of this rare, important, and mammoth map of the island of St. Christopher, now known as St. Kitts. This copy is preserved as printed, with the sheets untrimmed and unjoined. This highly detailed and well-executed chart depicts the island divided into its parishes, and contains a wealth of early information relating to houses, churches, forts, sugar mills and individual properties. The borders of each parish are outlined in contemporary hand color, and the shores of the island, with bays, ports, shoals, and soundings are delineated with great accuracy. The map is also noteworthy for the level of its inland detail. Beyond the island's capital, Basseterre Town, located at the lower center of the image, the map plots individual houses and plantations, and prints the names of each owner. The title, scale, and dedication to the Lords Commissioners of the navy are drawn in an attractive Baroque style in the upper left corner. An inset depicting the Leeward Island chain, including Montserrat, Antigua, Guadeloupe, and Martinique, and centrally situating St Christopher, is located in the upper right corner. Along each side is printed a list of subscribers, which includes government officials, agencies, and all of the major early planters of the island. At the time this map was produced, St. Christopher was on the way to becoming one of Great Britain's most important sugar-producing colonies in the Caribbean. By the advent of the American Revolution, the island was the richest territory per capita in the Empire. This rise to prosperity and importance in part explains the lavish size and detail of the map. A significant and quite rare map of a key British colonial possession nearing the height of its prominence. We are able to locate copies of this map at just seven other institutions, only three of which are in North America, the William Clements Library, the John Carter Brown Library, and the Library of Congress. TOOLEY, PRINTED MAPS OF ST. KITTS, ST. LUCIA, & ST. VINCENT, 28.

        Cartas Edificantes, y curiosas, escritas de las Missiones Estrangeras, por algunos missioneros de la Compañía de Jesus

      First Spanish edition of the celebrated collection of Jesuit reports from around the world. This collected publication of letters by Jesuit missionaries represents one of the most important sources of sixteenth to eighteenth-century Jesuit knowledge of the world. As well as reflecting Jesuit missionary activity in the East Indies, the Middle and Far East, the Americas and the Pacific, the Cartas provide us with an idea of the evolution of European knowledge on the Jesuit missions. These publications played a key role in the initiation and development of ideas of the Enlightenment, Voltaire and Montesquieu both acknowledged their debt to the work; Leibniz based his knowledge on its texts when he wrote about the Jesuit mission in China. In terms of the breadth of their scope and the diversity of subjects, the "Letters" belong with the other encyclopaedic works of the Enlightenment. The collection of original texts did much to raise European knowledge and consciousness (especially in France) of non-European cultures, and remains one of our main sources for information on the distant world during this period, especially regarding India, China and Japan, the Philippines and the East Indies, Tibet, Laos, and Vietnam. They are very important for America, and are often cited as sources for the history of early discoveries in both North and South America. Includes the works of Fathers Kino, Salvatierra and Picolo in California, descriptions of the Jesuit Reductions of Paraguay and Moxos of Bolivia, Peralta's comments on Paraguay, Father Niel's letter on Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego, Marest's missions in Illinois and amongst the Sioux, the Iroquois by Chollenec, and several others, too lengthy to mention. The array of information on the native tribes of South and North America (Guaranis, Chiriquan, Moxos, Hurons Ottawas, Sioux, Iroquois, Ouiapok, amongst others), their costumes, ethnology, manners, religions, and way of life is probably unsurpassed by any other work published by the 18th century. Extremely significant for China as well, derived from the fascination with everything Chinese in the eighteenth century, from its form of government, the peculiarities of its language, its customs and habits, literature and arts. The information that came with the Jesuits had a great deal to do with the beginnings of the European taste for chinoiserie. Even Du Halde was prompted to write his great work on China - without ever leaving Paris. 'The Constitutions of the Society of Jesus, approved in 1558, decreed that letters between "subjects and superiors" should be exchanged on a regular schedule to foster the spirit of union among the Society's members. Only annual letters were required from the missionaries in Asia because the fleets usually arrived in Europe but once each year. These annual reports, as well as many individual letters, usually wound up in Rome... Edited selections from the annual letters began to be published at Rome in 1583 for the edification of the general public and for the stimulation of interest in the missions. Over the next one hundred and ninety years (1583 to 1773, the date of the dissolution of the Society) the Jesuits created an international intelligence system that could not be rivalled by any of the world's secular powers. Systematic compilations of the letters from throughout the world became the hallmark of the Jesuit publication program in the eighteenth century. These collections were storehouses of information about Asia that have been ransacked by scholars ever since.' (Donald F. Lach, Asia in the Eyes of Europe: Sixteenth through Eighteenth Centuries, University of Chicago, 1991). Father Charles le Gobien published the first Lettres de quelques missionnaires de la Compagnie de Jésus in 1702, running until 1776. Le Gobien himself put the first eight series together, later ones were by Fathers Du Halde, Patouillet, Geoffroy, and Ambrose Maréchal. The work was translated in whole or in part into Spanish, Italian (18 volumes, 1825-29) and German (seven volumes, 1726-61). The English version of 1743 however was heavily abridged into just two volumes. The last volume is illustrated with thirteen maps of China, California, Syria, Persia, Palestine, Paraguay, the Philippines, Japan, Caroline Islands, Formosa, India, Mexico and others. Rare, completes copies are scarce; no copy has sold at auction in 30 years. Palau, 46343. Sabin, 40705. Borba de Moraes, 162.

It was printed by the Bodoni family printing office in Saluzzo, where the teenage Giambattista (1740-1813) discovered his late grandfather's punchcutting and typefounding materials about thirty years earlier and took his first steps toward becoming one of greatest names in the history of printing and punchcutting worldwide. With an early owner's name on the wrapper: "D Ferd[inando] Fracchia". Some of the sewing has come loose, so that the centre bifolium of the first quire is detached, but the book is otherwise in very good condition and has very large margins.

        Taxonomic literature[:] a selective guide to botanical publications and collections with dates, commentaries and types. Second edition.Utrecht, Bohn, Scheltema & Holkema; The Hague, Junk, 1976-1988. 7 volumes. 8vo. Publisher's blue cloth.

      Second much expanded edition -- growing from one to seven volumes - of an exhaustive bibliography of the literature on taxonomic botany from 1753 to 1940. "This new edition deals with many more botanists, their books and collections, than the modest volume of 1967. ... We now attempt to give more extensive information on the authors by going into more detail with respect to their collections, the biographical literature about them (one aspect of the book now is that it has become a 'bibliography of bibliographies'), and possible further information of use for the systematist or for the historian of botany. We also provide information on outstanding botanical explorers and collectors" (introduction).In very good condition, only some minor rubbing to the ends of the spine, and volume 1 and 2 are subtly rebound (still matching the other volumes), with the original backstrips laid down.

        Mémoires de Gaudence de Luques, Prisonnier de l'Inquisition ; Augmentés de plusieurs Cahiers qui avoient été perdus à la Douane de Marseille : enrichis des savantes Remarques de M. Rhedi, & de figures en taille douce.

      A Amsterdam 1753 - 4 parties en 2 vol. in-12 de (4)- XIV-(2)- LX-123 pp. ; (4)-204 pp. ; (4)-204 pp. ; (4)-232 pp., maroquin rouge, dos lisses ornés de pièces d'armes dorées, pièces de titre et de tomaison de maroquin olive, jolie dentelle dorée encadrant les plats, armes au centre, coupes et bordures intérieures décorées, doublures et gardes de papier dominoté doré, tranches dorées (reliure de l'époque). Première édition illustrée, augmentée par Dupuy-Demportes. Quatre figures et quatre vignettes de Le Lorrain gravées par Fessard. La première traduction en français date de 1746 et la première édition avec les augmentations de Jean-Baptiste Dupuy-Demportes de 1753. Cet ouvrage, qui fut un temps attribué au philosophe anglais George Berkeley, est en réalité l'oeuvre d'un prêtre catholique anglais, Simon Berington ; il connut un grand succès et de nombreuses rééditions au XVIIIe siècle (notamment dans les Voyages imaginaires, songes, visions et romans cabalistiques.). Présenté sous la forme d'un interrogatoire, l'ouvrage est le récit d'un voyage imaginaire en « Mezzoranie », pays utopique dont les habitants seraient des descendants des anciens Egyptiens. « La traduction de Milz et du chevalier de Saint-Germain, de cette utopie anglaise paru en 1738 dans sa version originale, est tellement remaniée qu'elle appartient en propre à la littérature utopique française. L'édition augmentée qui parut en 1753 par les soins de Dupuy-Demportes en témoigne. Il s'agit d'une imitation de l'Histoire des Sévarambes, mais l'ouvrage est aussi tributaire de More et Campanella, et peut avoir été inspiré par les récits sur les tribus du Niger ». Bon exemplaire, en maroquin décoré de l'époque aux armes de Guillaume II de Lamoignon (1683- 1772), chancelier de France en 1750.

        Gli elementi di Euclide a migliore, e piu chiara maniera ridotti, arricchiti per la maggior parte di nuove dimostrazioni, premessi gli elementi dell'algebra, dedicati a S.S.R.M. dal P. maestro Giulio Acceta Agostiniano

      nella Stamperia Reale, 1753. 2 parti in un volume in-4°, pp. (12), 149, (3) ; 286, (2), e 8 tavole ripiegate f.t., legatura coeva in piena pergamena rigida, titolo su tassello al dorso. Leggere usure ai tagli della legatura. Capilettera e testatine in xilografia. Il fascicolo i della seconda parte è stato erroneamente inserito dopo ilfascicolo l, ma completo in tutte le sue parti. Giulio Accetta va considerato un genio del suo tempo, fu studioso ed uomo di scienze che al metodo dottrinale predilesse quello sperimentale e ciò lo portò ad emergere presso l'Università di Torino nella branca delle scienze matematiche e fisiche. Nel gennaio del 1730 fu nominato professore di matematica presso la Reale Università di Torino succedendo alla Cattedra dell'Abate bolognese Ercole Corazzi. Contribuì alla rinascita dell'Ateneo piemontese ed i suoi studi sperimentali ripresi successivamente dal Lagrange ebbero eco fino in Francia. I suoi interessi si spostarono via via verso la fisica e l'astronomia.Fu per questo che nel 1749 fu scelto come membro di una commissione regia che avrebbe dovuta stabilire il criterio dei pesi e delle misure da adottare nel Regno Sabaudo. Negli ultimi anni della sua vita si prodigò perché l'Ateneo piemontese facesse quel salto di qualità anche nell'astronomia. Morì nel settembre del 1752 un mese dopo che il reverendo Padre P. Velasquez aveva dato il nulla osta a che gli elementi di algebra venissero insegnati seguendo le sue rivoluzionarie teorie. Un anno dopo i suoi confratelli davano alle stampe "Gli Elementi di Euclide" dove I'algebra e la geometria venivano spiegate seguendo le sue intuizioni. Haym, IV, 85; Riccardi, 4

        Prospetto della prima macchina de' Fuochi d'artificio, rappresentante il Tempio di Esculapio fatta per comando di Sua Eccellenza il Sig. Prinipe D. Fabrizio Colonna in congiuntura di presentare la Chinea ala Santità di Nostro Signore l'anno 1753

      1753 - Acquaforte e bulino, 1753. Da un soggetto di Paolo Posi. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini, qualche piega di carta, lieve abrasione nel margine bianco inferiore, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Le macchine del fuoco per la festa della Chinea Chinea in senso letterale, era la mula bianca (o il cavallo ambiatore delle Asturie) che i Re di Spagna presentavano annualmente al papa in forma solenne per il pagamento del censo per il Regno di Napoli. Il cavallo, convenientemente ammaestrato, s'inginocchiava davanti al pontefice e gli offriva la somma di danaro contenuta in un vaso d'argento fissato alla sella. L'offerta era preceduta da una solenne cavalcata della durata di due ore e mezza, lungo un itinerario preciso. Per rendere più solenne la cerimonia, con decreto del 12 maggio 1691 di Carlo II, si obbligavano i "grandi" di Spagna a partecipare al solenne corteo, al quale seguivano per due sere spari di macchine pirotecniche accompagnati da esecuzioni musicali, balli e rinfreschi. La chinea, per la sua regolarità, non era soltanto la festa estiva per eccellenza, ma il migliore biglietto da visita della monarchia spagnola (poi di quella napoletana) nella città eterna, l'arma propagandistica più convincente per guadagnare un consenso universale e l'appoggio politico delle altre potenze. Le celebrazioni erano fastosissime, malgrado i problemi politici della nazione, ed il consueto ritardo nell'invio del danaro per il loro svolgimento. In occasione della festa, palazzo di Spagna e, successivamente, palazzo Colonna e palazzo Farnese, diventavano per due mesi all'anno l'atelier di inventori, pittori, disegnatori e architetti di macchine, nonché il momento di aggregazione di artificieri, fuocaroli, musicisti, fornitori e cuochi. Questi palazzi, inoltre, diventavano, per due giorni all'anno, sede dell'ambasciata straordinaria, luogo dal quale partiva la cavalcata e davanti al quale si innalzavano le « stupefacenti » macchine per i fuochi d'artificio, dove si disponevano le luminarie tenute accese le sere della vigilia e il giorno della festività dei santi Pietro e Paolo. Risale agli inizi del Settecento la consuetudine di allestire, il 28 e 29 giugno, due sontuose macchine in piazza santissimi Apostoli (più raramente in piazza Farnese), di cui conosciamo le caratteristiche grazie alle minuziose incisioni, accompagnate da esaurienti didascalie, che vennero stampate annualmente dal 1723. Monopolizzarono la costruzione e progettazione delle macchine di questo periodo Paolo Posi, architetto camerale della Repubblica di Venezia e di casa Colonna, in collaborazione con il suo allievo, l'architetto camerale Giuseppe Palazzi, e con l'incisore Giuseppe Vasi. Posi, ultimo epigono del barocco, celebrava Ferdinando negli apparati come appassionato archeologo, e come l'entusiasta monarca favorevole al trasporto in piazza di elementi popolari sulla platea d'un sontuoso edificio destinato al divertimento pubblico. Più che mai per tali apparati, ove l'incisore lavorò su disegni altrui, come d'altronde per spettacolari cortei o cavalcate cittadine, il Vasi è prezioso testimone ed interprete del suo tempo. Etching, printed on contemporary laid paper, small tear perfectly repaired, otherwise in good condition The engravings have been laid on canvas and framed; after a long work to repair them, they now look almost perfect. Signs of glue on verso, on recto signs of abrasions and oxidations. Chinea literally means white female mule, the one the Kings of Spain offered every year to the Pope as a solemn payment of the income of the Kingdome of Naples. The horse, duly trained, knelt in front of the Pope and to offer him a silver vase with money inside, that was fastened to its saddle. The offer was preceded by a solemn ride of two and a half hours, a long and precise itinerary. To make it even more solemn, as per Charles II decree of the 12 of May 1691, the Greats of Spain were obliged to take part to the cortege, which

Jahrhunderts, Rücken auf vier Bünden mit braunem Titelschild und reicher Goldprägung, die Deckel gerahmt von schmaler Bordüre aus Rattenzahnrolle, Filete und Laubrolle, Steh- und Innenkantenbordüre, Marmorpapiervorsätze, Goldschnitt. (Gelenke leicht brüchig, sonst makellos). - Conlon 53:702. MMF 53.17. Gay III, 1376. Cohen 174f. Portalis/Beraldi III, 195. Bocher 319-323. Nicht bei Mahérault. - Erste Ausgabe und einziger Druck der reizenden Illustra-tionen. Laut Bocher handelt es sich bei den fünf Radierungen um die erste Arbeit des damals zwölfjährigen Jean-Michel Moreau le jeune: "Moreau était encore un enfant lorsqu'il s'amusa à illustrer ce petit voyage. C'est certainement sa première production, et l'on voit déjà, à travers son inexpérience, ce que seront plus tard son dessin et sa manière de l'interpréter par le burin." Diese Zuschreibung dürfte allerdings ebenso falsch sein wie die Angabe bei Cohen u.a., der Kupfertitel sei das Werk von Louis-Gabriel Moreau (l'aîné). - Text gleichmäßig schwach gebräunt, sonst sehr schönes Exemplar.
