      Aux dépens de La Compagnie 1753 - - Aux dépens de La Compagnie, A Amsterdam 1753, Pet. In-12 (8,5x15,5cm), (4) 11p. (1) 302pp. et (4) 252pp., 2 volumes reliés. - Edition définitive, revue et corrigée par l'auteur et augmentée d'un épisode important. Il y a en effet de nombreuses variantes avec l'édition de 1731. C'est ce texte qui servira pour toutes les éditions futures. En 1756 paraîtra une nouvelle édition augmentée de deux nouvelles partie dont l'attribution à l'abbé Prévost est toujours contestée. Une vignette répétée de Pasquier, 4 figures par parties de Pasquier et Gravelot ; ces 8 figures sont charmantes et délicates ; il s'agit du meilleur tirage fait sur un papier plié dans le sens de l'in-8 (les feuillets ont des pontuseaux de haut en bas, et non en travers comme pour les feuillets in-12 des volumes), ce qui explique que les gravures ont été coupées un peu court sur la marge externe. C'est l'édition la plus recherchée de l'histoire de Manon Lescaut. Reliures en plein veau marbré d'époque. Dos à nerfs ornés. Pièces de titre en maroquin rouge, et de tomaison en maroquin tabac. Mors supérieur du tome II étroitement fendu en tête et queue. Travail de vers sur un nerf du tome I, 2 trou de vers. Manque le coin droit de la page 239 avec pertes de quelques mots. Bon exemplaire. Manon Lescaut parut pour la première fois en 1731 à la suite des Mémoires et aventures d'une homme de qualité, mais passa inaperçu. L'histoire scandaleuse des amours passionnels du chevalier Des Grieux et de Manon (c'est-à-dire d'un noble et d'une prostituée) connut alors rapidement la gloire et il n'y eut pas moins de 23 éditions du vivant de Prévost. Deux autres parties furent écrites en 1756 (qui commence au retour d'Amérique de Des Grieux et après la mort de Manon), bien que la paternité de cette suite qui ressucite Manon de façon si incongrue ne lui a pas été attribuée de manière définitive ; les éditions modernes ne la reprennent pas.

      Artist: Homann Erben RJ & Julien; issued in: Paris; date: 1753 - - technic: Copper print; colorit: colored; condition: Very good; size in cm : 38 x 65 - description: double hemishere map in oblique polar projection.In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt (Grand Atlas of all the World). Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, who also published Siebmachers Wappenbuch.Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, which was in business until 1848. The company was known as Homann Erben, Homanniani Heredes, or Heritiers de Homann abroad. - Vita of the artist: "Johann Babtiste Homann (1664-1724) was born in Oberkammlach, the Electorate of Bavaria. Although educated at a Jesuit school, and preparing for an ecclesiastical career, he eventually converted to Protestantism and from 1687 worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house.Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as a recommendation for potential customers.In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt (Grand Atlas of all the World). Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, who also published Siebmachers Wappenbuch.Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, which was in business until 1848. The company was known as "Homann Erben", "Homanniani Heredes", or "Heritiers de Homann" abroad. "

        Essays and Treatises on Several Subjects.

      London: for A. Millar; and A. Kincaid and A. Donaldson, at Edinburgh, , 1753. 4 volumes, duodecimo (163 × 100 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, gilt double-rule border to covers, spines ruled gilt, contrasting morocco labels. Joints lightly rubbed and partly cracked but sound, spine ends and corners a little worn, split to leather on front cover of volume one, first and last leaves with offset from the leather turn ins, some occasional spotting and the odd pencil note; a fine set. First collected edition of Hume's Essays. It was with this publication, Andrew Millar's initiative, that Hume achieved wide commercial success. The effect of this edition was to make his philosophy available "in a format which for the first time was both accessible and calculated to encourage sales" (Oxford DNB). Sets of the Essays and treatises are invariably composed of varying Todd issues, which "involves the resetting of all separate volumes previously issued, the reissue of the earlier volumes with cancel titles and, where the cancels were not prepared in sufficient numbers, the further reissue of certain volumes with original titles still intact" (Todd). This quite unsophisticated set consists of Todd's earliest issue of each volume with the exception of volume III. A former owner has made pencil notes to the margins concerning the bibliographical points mentioned by Todd. The set comprises: I. Essays moral and political. The fourth edition corrected, with additions. II. Philosophical essays concerning human understanding. The second edition, with additions and corrections. III. An enquiry concerning the principles of morals. A reissue of the first edition sheets, with a cancel title page. IV. Political discourses. The second edition.

        Descriptio genealogica antiquissimae nobilisquae familiae nomine Van den Heede.Bruges, 1775 (with additions to 1783). Royal folio in 4s (44 x 28 cm). Manuscript in black and brown ink on paper, nearly every page with a pre-printed letterpress border of rococo fleurons, with illustrations in coloured gouaches and/or watercolour. With an architectural title-page, 14 small coloured coats of arms and a coloured map; and the text illustrated with about 140 coats of arms (including about 8 blank shields), all but 1 of the arms coloured and about 20 full-page and elaborately decorated; and 5 full-page manuscript cartouches with text. Contemporary mottled, tanned sheepskin, richly gold-tooled spine.

      - A beautifully illustrated and extremely detailed account of the genealogy and heraldry of the Flemish Van der Heede family, including many prominent members of that and related families from the 7th century to the time of writing. Besides full-page illustrations showing Van den Heede and the Flanders arms, there are full-page illustrations showing the arms (the shield measuring about 12 x 12 cm, most of them mantled with elaborately knotted ribbons and tassels) of the families Strabant, Voel, Van Overscelde, De Boot, De Raet, De Wijchuyse, Wouters, Van Bassevelde, Van Hertsberghe, Colen, De Clerck, Le Joly, Resteau, Berenger and Adornes. Jean François Verplancke the elder (1753-1794) was a Bruges genealogist, perhaps a son of the man of that name who headed a Brussels porcelain factory from 1764 to 1772 and father of the Jean François Verplancke fils who published tables of metric conversions in 1803.With modern armorial bookplate. Some leaves have been removed, but there does not appear to be any text or illustration omitted. The manuscript is in very good condition, but two of the armorial seals are badly damaged and a few others slightly damaged, and they have all left an indentation on the leaves before and after. The green pigment occasionally used in the colouring has left a faint shadow on the reverse of the leaves where it was used. The binding is somewhat scuffed with a few minor tears in the leather but remains structurally sound and most of the tooling on the spine is well preserved.

        A New and Accurate Survey of the Island of Minorca, a Perticular Plan of the Harbour of Mahon and its Fortifications. with Prospects of the Town of Mahon and St. Philip's Castle. Drawn and Engraved by Capt. Lempriere.

      Published According to Act of Parliament by J. Rocque Near Old Round Court in the Strand,, London, 1753 - Rare plan of Minorca Separately issued engraved map sheet, containing three maps, and inset views of 'St. Philip's Castle', and the 'North Prospect of Mahon'. Rare separately issued map of Minorca.The map sheet consists of a map of Spain, a plan of Mahon Harbour, a map of Minorca, and prospects of Mahon and St Philps' Castle. The map of the Island, on a scale of 1 1/3 miles to the inch, shows towns, villages, roads, rivers, administrative boundaries, and coastal features. At the time of works publication Minorca was under British rule. The British had gained control of the island in 1708, during the Wars of Spanish Succession. The map was first published by Lempriere 1746 and sold by Stephen Austen at his bookshop in Newgate Street; with the death of Lempriere in the same year, and Austen in 1750, the plates, where acquired by John Rocque, who published a new edition in 1753 - the present example. For this new edition Rocque has removed Austen's imprint, added text below the cartouche regarding the Battle of Almanza (Almansa fought on 25th April 1707), and engraved a plan of the battle in the sea to the east of Spain. The Battle was disaster for the English and Portuguese forces, and the Spanish and French forces victory assured them control of most of Spain. Britain's capture of Minorca in the following year was somewhat of a consolation prize.Captain Clement Lempriere (1683-1746) was a military engineer, draughtsman, cartographer and engraver, whose most important work was the draughtsmanship for Henry Popple's majestic map of the British Colonies of North America, published in 1733. Born in Jersey in 1683, he served with the British Army, attached to the Corps of Engineers, and in 1741 was appointed Chief Draughtsman at the Tower of London at a salary of £100 per annum. He died 9th July 1746.Rare the OCLC records two institutional examples bearing the 1753 imprint: the British Library, and Yale University Library.Scale: 1 1/3 statute miles to the inch.

        A plain chart of the Caspian Sea.

      Jonas Hanway, 1753. unbound. Map. Uncolored engraving. Measures 13 1/2" x 21 1/4". This incredibly detailed map features a chart of the Caspian Sea and its surroundings, harbors and anchorages. Oriented with north to the right, depicts the 'world's largest lake' when it was being explored by Europeans to open up navigational possibilities to aid with trade in Asia. The coastline are exquisitely detailed with oceanic depths noted and beautifully rendered topography. A note in the bottom right states that 'This chart mentions the frequented places only, and such as are of use to navigators'. Thomas Woodroofe was the seafarer for a British trading company established on the Caspian Sea in 1740. Headed by Captain John Elton, the company existed for a short time, during which its ships sailed across the Caspian Sea from Russia to Persia and back. Woodroofe was the master of one of the British ships "Empress of Russia", who navigated the sea for three years. He wrote the sailing directions and prepared this particular map based on the observations of Captain Elton (author of Elton's Quadrant), and presented it to M. Jonas Hanway of Saint Petersburg in 1745. The map was published according to Act of Parliament in 1753 and later published in Jonas Hanways notes titled, "An Historical Account of the British Trade Over the Caspian Sea". The map is in very good condition with some wear along the folds and minor creasing. Minor foxing and some edge wear. Some verso repair over cracks near edges. A beautifully engraved title cartouche adorns the lower right. Overall, a beautiful map of the Caspian Sea.

        Composite atlas].

      [c.1753]., Paris, - A composite atlas of Italy bound in red morocco with the arms of Louis, Dauphin of France, the only surviving son of King Louis XV, and the father of three kings of France Folio (540 by 430mm) 36 engraved maps on 53 map sheets, all with fine original hand-colour, (mostly double-page, four folding and one single page), red morocco, lavishly gilt, with arms of Louis Dauphin of France, spine in eight compartments separated by raised bands, gilt. A lavish composite atlas of Italy, bound for Louis, Dauphin of France.Louis (1729?Äì1765) was the only surviving son of King Louis XV of France and his wife, Queen Marie Leszczy?Ñska. Son of the king, Louis was styled Fils de France, and as heir apparent, he became Dauphin of France. However, he died before ascending to the throne. Three of his sons became kings of France: Louis XVI (reign: 1774?Äì1792), Louis XVIII (reign: 1814?Äì1815; 1815?Äì1824) and Charles X (reign: 1824?Äì1830).Louis from an early age was greatly interested in pursuing a military career, however, his father Louis XV would not allow his only son, then aged 15, to join in the campaign of 1744, during the War of Austrian Succession. The relationship between father and son would be irrevocably damaged, in the same year, when the young Louis disobeyed orders and came to visit his fever-ridden father at the siege of Metz. The rash action, which could have led to the death of father and son, saw a permanent souring of relations between the two; as a result the Dauphin would never see service on the battlefield. The present work can be seen as Louis?Äô continued fascination with military matters. Compiled around 1753 it shows the Dauphin?Äôs interest in Italy, a pivotal battleground during the War of Austrian Succession, which had ended in an uneasy truce in 1748. The truce would be broken in 1755 when the Seven Years War broke out; ironically a war that, although it involved all the great European powers and was waged across the globe, would see the Italian states stay neutral.The atlas covers Italy, Sicily, Sardinia, Corsica, and Malta. The maps range in date from 1653-1753, with the majority dating from the first half of the eighteenth century. All but three maps (two by Homann and one by the Spanish cartographer Chafrion) are by the leading French cartographers of the day, these include De Fer, Jaillot, Delisle, Du Val, Le Rouge, and Nolin.Several of the maps are of particular note including A.F.G. Depalmeus?Äôs maps of Malta and Gozo - one of the largest and most detailed maps of Malta published in the eighteenth century. One must also mention Depalmeus?Äô plan of Valetta, also present here. Pere Placide de St Helen (1648-1734) large five sheet map the River Po, charts its course from west of Turin to its mouth near Venice. Also of note is Jose Chafrion?Äôs ?ÄòTopographica de la Liguria?Äô, a large map on eight sheets, published in Milan in 1685. Chafrion (1653-1698) was a leading Spanish cartographer and military engineer working during the second half of the seventeenth century. He was stationed in Milan between 1684 and 1691. Worldcat records only three institutional examples (Bern, Switzerland, The British Library, and the BnF), with the map appearing only once at auction: Sotheby?Äôs 1964.

With the Swede Daniel Solander (1733-1782), he discovered that sponges are animals. "Ellis's zoophyte descriptions and professionally drawn engravings, and his scientific approach, were outstanding. His two longest books, Natural History of the Corallines?and the posthumous Natural History of Zoophytes (1786, partly written by Solander), were seminal. In the 1750s he was one of the British Museum's first noteworthy scientific visitors. He became a fellow of the Royal Society in 1754 and was its Copley medallist in 1767."-ODNB.

      London 1: Henry Simons. 2: James Ashley 1753 - First editions. 2 volumes, octavo (20 x 12.5 cm), I. 115 pp., engraved frontispiece portrait. II. , [7], 47 pp., engraved frontispiece portrait (same as in first work), both works in restored marbled boards, library stamps. A fine set. Fascinating combination of two works representing both sides of the same notorious anti-Semitic trial. Henry Simons was a Jewish merchant who arrived in England from Poland via Holland. with a large quantity of gold ducats, a trade currency used in Europe at that time. This fact was documented by a border officer upon Simons' arrival. One night, while staying at the White-Heart inn kept by Mr Goddard, Simons was robbed of his ducats at knifepoint by two men. Simons accused Goddard of robbing him, for which Goddard was arrested, tried and acquitted, based on 'good character' testimonies by his neighbours and gardener, Thomas Ashley. Goddard then sued Simons for perjury, for which Simons was tried and also acquitted. At the same time Thomas Ashley accused Simons of assault and of incriminating him with the robbery of the three gold ducats. In this trial the jury could not reach a clear verdict, but it was taken down as 'guilty' – a verdict which Simons then appealed and found 'not guilty'. Subsequently both Simons and Ashley each published their side of the story, including the trial's transcripts. Simons often depreciatingly referred to as just 'Jew' in some of the documents, which show him in most unsympathetic light. Simons' book portrays him as a foreigner who fell victim to a cunning gang.
