        La science des négocians et teneurs de livres, ou instruction generale. Pour tout ce qui se pratique dans les comptoirs des négocians, tant pour les affaires de banque, que pour les marchandises, & chez les financiers pour les comptes. Divisée en trois traités... Nouvelle édition, revûe, corrigée & augmentée.

      Paris: David l'aîné,, 1753. Oblong octavo (125 x 196 mm), pp. xvi, 608. Contemporary mottled sheep, spine decorated gilt in compartments, morocco label, red edges, marbled endpapers. Spine chipped at head with small portion missing, joints and corners lightly rubbed, with two small worm holes to lower joint; some surface erosion, neatly patched. Occasional light spotting; a very good copy. Perhaps the most famous eighteenth century French work on book-keeping, first published in 1704 and frequently reprinted. "The major part of the book covers double-entry. Several features of the treatment are worth noting. First, de la Porte distinguishes between the 'memorial entier', which is the unified comprehensive book of original entry as described by Pacioli, and the 'memorial divis? en plusieurs parties', which is its replacement by a series of specialised books of original entry, already described by Weddington in 1567. Second, the author deals comprehensively with single and compound journal entries, including transactions with both multiple debits and multiple credits (pp 72-3). Third, fifteen auxiliary books ('livres d'aide') are described and most are illustrated ... Fourth, de la Porte advocates the use of two collective personal accounts ... Fifth, [he] discusses the transfer of journal entries in the ledger." (Bywater and Yamey, pp. 142-145).

        The Ruins of Palmyra,

      London: [s. n.],, 1753. otherwise Tedmor, in the Desart. Elephant folio (545 × 360 mm). Recent grey-brown half calf, marbled sides, red morocco spine-label lettered in gilt. 2 full-page engravings to the text and 59 engraved plates after Borra, numbered I-LVII (plate I in 3 parts). Title-page with hygroscopic tide-mark to fore edge and discreet restoration to verso, very faint spotting to top edge of a few plates, closed tear to fore edge of plate IV just touching image, marginal tide-mark and very light foxing to plates LIV-LVII; plates XXVI, XXXVI and XL respectively with small ink-stain, minor spill-burn and circular damp-stain, all marginal and none affecting images. A crisp, excellent copy, with generous margins and bright plates. First edition. "Wood's first voyage to the Levant was made in 1742. In 1750 another expedition was suggested by James Dawkins and John Bouverie. It is likely that the prime mover was Dawkins and that he intended to model the journey on Stuart and Revett's activities in Athens, which he was helping to finance. The three men, accompanied by the architect and draughtsman Giovanni Battista Borra, toured Asia Minor, where Bouverie died. The others then returned to Athens where they joined Stuart and Revett. In 1751 Wood, Dawkins and Borra returned to Syria. With some difficulty they managed to reach Palmyra and then went on to Balbec" (Blackmer 1835). "The expedition to the Near East resulted in two books … which stand at the beginning of a tradition to which other writers on archaeology in the second half of the eighteenth century would aspire: The Ruins of Palmyra, otherwise Tedmor in the Desart (1753), and The Ruins of Balbec, otherwise Heliopolis in Coelosyria (1757) … The works brought previously unknown remains to public attention and had a profound effect on classical taste in England" (ODNB). They were "highly praised by Gibbon" (Hamilton), and moved Horace Walpole to remark that "of all the works that distinguish this age, none perhaps excell those beautiful editions of Balbec and Palmyra … The modest descriptions prefixed are standards of writing: The exact measure of what should and should not be said, and of what was necessary to be known" (Anecdotes, 1xiv). Dawkins wrote the official account while Wood took charge of the topography and inscriptions. Highly desirable in this condition, with rich impressions of the "beautifully executed plates" (Howgego).

      No place [Germany?, Holland] Folio (32.5 cm; 13"). [1] f., double-page illus., 220 pp., [2 (blank)], [16], [1], [1 (blank), [4] ff.. 1753 An 18th-century translation from the original Latin into German of a substantial, short book?-length treatise originally written slightly before 1584 by Kerssenbroch (1520?-85) to celebrate the jubilee of the expulsion of the Anabaptists from Münster. (This expulsion, from his point of view, would have been turn-about as fair play, given that according to the Catholic Encyclopedia "his parents were banished from that city by the Anabaptists.") This text does not seem to be a translation of any known Latin writings by Kerssenbrock nor does NUC Manuscripts (on-line) list any manuscript of this title; and while it is clearly related to his "Geschichte der Wiedertäufer zu Münster im Westphalen, nebst einer Beschreibung der Hauptstadt dieses Landes" that was first published in 1771, it is certainly not the same work. The double-page illustration is in color; it is of Münster and its churches and is dated April, 1748. The style is archaic and reminiscent of that used in the Nuremberg Chronicle. Following Kerssenbroch's treatise are a number of leaves containing transcription of Latin documents from the 15th century and earlier. The bulk of the text is written on paper with a fool's cap watermark and the counter mark "IV." => The hand is large and legible; the margins are generous. Binding: Contemporary German half vellum with mottled paper sides (in shades of white, blue-green, and red); neat gilt leather title-label on spine, and all edges carmine. Provenance: Ex?-Crozer Theological Library; then to Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School; deaccessioned. On Kerssenbroch, see: Catholic Encyclopedia (online). Volume bound as above; old bookplate and marks as per provenance. Text clean, ink good, and paper excellent.

        Mémoires secrets de la République des Lettres, ou le Théâtre de la Vérité par l'Auteur des Lettres Juives. Letters 1-4 and 7-19 in 7 volumes.

      Amsterdam and Den Haag, Desbordes and Neaulme, 1737-, 1753. - circa 13,5 x 7,8 cm. Together about 2200 pages Contemporary full mottled calf with richly gilt spines and covers, gilt arms of the Madame de Pompadour on all covers Cf. Gay/ Lemonnyer III, p.172 and Barbier III, 252. Collection of essays in the form of letters by the author and philosopher Jean-Baptiste de Boyer, marquis d'Argens (1703-1771), who lived for 25 years at the court of Frederic II. of Prussia in Berlin and Potsdam before returning to his native town Aix-en-Provence. He describes and critizises contemporary literature, philosophy and fashions, some letters are very satirical and polemic against the clergy which is the reason why these volumes were printed in the Netherlands and prohibited in France. Complete sets are very rare to find as the letters appeared over a period of more than 15 years. Especially the last parts (17-19) seem to be uncommon and missing to most copis we could trace. Here the third volume with letters 5 and 6 has unfortunately gone lost. - This set is from the library of the Marquise de Pompadour (1721-1764) the official chief mistress of Louis XV. Each volume shows her arms on both covers. The first endpaper of each volume has another engraved bookplate (engraved by Agry) with different crowned arms. In 1757 the Marquise sold the Chateau de Crecy with all it contained and these volumes were most likely among the property sold. They are not mentioned in the catalogue that describes the books she left after her death. - Nice set, only minor browning, a little rubbed, one spine with a small wormhole. Very decorative and with an important provenance. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Chart of North and South America including the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans with the nearest coasts of Europe, Africa and Asia

      London: Thomas Jefferys, 1753. Engraved map of the Americas, the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans on 6 copper engraved sheets (each sheet approximately 22 x 29 1/2 inches, or smaller). (Old folds). An unassembled six sheet wall map centered on the Americas accurately documenting European exploration in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans up to the mid-eighteenth century. The six sheets cover an area from 185 degrees west to 20 degrees east, and from 60 degrees south to 82 degrees north, and would form a map of about 60 x 48 inches if joined. The map records the tracks of all the latest voyages to the Arctic and the Bering Straits, as well as the Dutch voyages to the South Pacific. Overall, the map offers a clear record of the discoveries that had been made in the area as of 1753, just before an explosion of Western activity in the Pacific and the start of the search, in earnest, for the Northwest Passage. Each of the six double-page sheets includes tables recording distances and positions, the voyages of various explorers, and additional miscellaneous notes (many referring to other maps and mapmakers). Each map is individually titled along upper margin as follows: Sheet I: Chart containing part of the Icy Sea with the adjacent Coast of Asia and America Sheet 2: Chart comprising Greenland with the Countries and Islands about Baffin's and Hudson's Bays Sheet 3: Chart containing the Coasts of California, New Albion, and Russian Discoveries to the North; with the Peninsula of Kamchatka, in Asia, opposite thereto; and Islands, dispersed over the Pacific Ocean, to the North of the Line Sheet 4: Chart of the Atlantic Ocean, with the British, French, & Spanish Settlements in North America, and the West Indies Sheet 5: Chart containing the greater part of the South Sea to the South of the Line, with the Islands dispersed thro' the same Sheet 6: Chart of South America, comprehending the West Indies, with the Adjacent Islands, in the Southern Ocean, and the South Sea Jefferys, the leading British mapmaker of the mid-eighteenth century, became geographer to the Prince of Wales in 1746 and geographer to the King in 1760. He published a remarkable number of maps and charts, many of the North American continent. "The genius behind Jefferys in his shop was a brilliant man who at this time went by the alias of John Green. He made a great six-sheet map of North and South America (1753), concerning which he said, 'The English charts of America being for the general very inaccurate, I came to a resolution to publish some new ones for the use of British navigators.' In addition to his extensive cartographic abilities, Green's personal history also stands out from amongst the biographies of other 18th-century British map makers. John Green was born Braddock Mead in Ireland before 1688, married in Dublin in 1715 and around 1717 moved to London. He was imprisoned in 1728 for trying to defraud an Irish heiress. He also worked with Chambers on his Universal Dictionary . After he got out of gaol, he took the name of Green, and subsequently worked for Cave, Astley, and Jefferys. Mead 'had a number of marked characteristics as a cartographer ... One was his ability to collect, to analyze the value of, and to use a wide variety of sources; these he acknowledged scrupulously on the maps he designed and even more fully in accompanying remarks. Another outstanding characteristic was his intelligent compilation and careful evaluation of reports on latitudes and longitudes used in the construction of his maps, which he also entered in tables on the face of the maps ... Mead's contributions to cartography stand out ... At a time when the quality and the ethics of map production were at a low ebb in England, he vigorously urged and practiced the highest standards; in the making of maps and navigational charts he was in advance of his time. For this he deserves due credit." (Cumming). Complete suites of the six maps are rare. In 1991, the Dupont set sold for $12,000 hammer; in 2007, the Frank Streeter set sold for $60,000. A separately-issued pamphlet on the map is seldom found together with the map, and is not included with this set. Lada-Mocarski quotes an 1899 Henry Stevens catalogue concerning the map: "We have never before met with the Remarks and Chart together. The latter is very rarely complete, as the 6 charts has a complete border and title so that they were evidently sold separately as required." Crone, "John Green. Notes on a neglected Eighteenth Century Geographer and Cartographer," Imago Mundi , VI (1950) p. 89-91; Crone, "Further Notes on Braddock Mead, alias John Green..."

        L'Amerique Suivant Le R. P. Charlevoix Jte. Mr. De La Condamine, Et Plusieurs Autres Nouvle. Observations a Paris Par Le Sr. Le Rouge Ing. Geographe Du Roy. Rue Des Grs. Augustins 1746

      Paris 1753 - An engraved map of North and South America at the middle of the 18th century, with outline coloring. Some creasing at center fold, several short tears and one 6" tear from the lower edge into an ocean portion, neatly repaired. The map contains a table at the lower left and further notes at the lower right, with a brightly colored and ornate title illustration. Designed by George LeRouge, Louis XV's royal cartographer, the map has a title dated 1746, but is from 1753. The California coast is delineated up to Cap Mendocin, where pure speculation takes over. Alaska and its relationship to the mainland are just an indistinct guess. A Riv. De Louest spans the continent of North America. Collector Warren Heckrotte points out that "In North Pacific Chirikof's voyage is shown and in North America the presumed waterway discovered by De Fonte's. This material was added in 1753, not with the original engraving. This map and Le Rouge's 1744 world map have been pointed out as being the first cartographic representation of the Bering and Chirikof Expedition of 1742, and of the De Fonte voyage. This material was added in 1753; these maps have no priority." Chaplet watermark with countermark, Heawood 239. Wroth, Cartography of the Pacific, 92. P-LG 2720, 4286, 5974.

        INDIA - 2 Charts on 1 Sheet: [CHENNAI (Madras) & Pulicat, Tamil Nadu]. De Kust van Coromandel Reede voor Palleakatte. [and] [Cuddalore area, Tamil Nadu] De Kust van Coromoandel Tengepatnam.

      - A rare and fine pair of sea charts, presented together on a single sheet, of Chennai & Pulicat and the Cuddalore area (Tamil Nadu), from the ‘Secret Atlas’ of the Dutch East India Company (VOC), issued in Amsterdam by Johannes van Keulen II. This lovely and very rare pair of charts on a single sheet features two important areas along India’s Coromandel Coast, in what is today Tamil Nadu, and is from the ‘Secret Atlas’ of the Dutch East India Company (VOC), issued by Johannes van Keulen II in Amsterdam in 1753. The upper chart covers the Madras (Chennai) and Pulicat region, from a westward-orientated perspective. Features along the shore are expressed pictographically, while hydrographic information dots the seas. The position labeled ‘’t Engles Fort,’ surmounted by the English flag, refers to Madras (Chennai), and Fort St. George in particular, while further to the left, is St. Mary’s Church. Founded in 1744, Madras (Chennai) was the capital of the Three Presidencies of the British East India Company (EIC), and the most important European-ruled settlement in Southern India. Just seven years before this map was issued, Madras was taken by the French during the Siege of Madras (1746), Britain’s worst-ever defeat on the Indian Subcontinent, although the city would be retuned to the EIC in 1748. Further to the north (right) is ‘Palleacatte’ (Pulicat), marked with a Dutch tricolour, as it was then an important VOC base. It was established by the Portuguese in 1502 and conquered by the Dutch in 1609. From that time until 1690, Pulicat served as the capital of the Dutch Coromandel (replaced that year by Negapatnam), although it remained an important Dutch post until 1825, when it was ceded to Britain. The prominent Pulicat sandbar, which juts far out into the Bay of Bengal is marked. The fine chart that occupies the lower part of the sheet features the area just to the north of Cuddalore (Tamil Nadu). ‘Tengepatnam’ (not to be confused with the other Tengapatnam, Tamil Nadu, properly known as Thengapattanam, located the northwest of Cape Comorin) refers to a Dutch base built in 1647 to the north of Cuddalore, since abandoned. To the left (south) is ‘’t Moorse Fort’ (the Moorish Fort) which inaccurately named what became Fort St. David. The fort was originally built by the Nayaks of Gingee in 1608, and was taken by the Marathas in 1677. In 1690, the EIC took over the fort, whereupon it became a major British base, stalking Pondicherry, the capital of French India, located a short distance to the north. The town of Cuddalore developed to the south of Fort St. David. A Hindu temple in the interior, labeled as ‘de Pagood Tierepopeliere,’ is employed as a navigational aid. The Secret Atlas of the VOC & the Charts of India The present charts are part of the ‘Secret Atlas’ of the VOC, issued in Amsterdam by Johannes van Keulen II, which featured printed charts based on the manuscript charts that were privileged for the use of the Company’s sea captains. They lend a unique insight into the knowledge of coastal India possessed by the VOC, one of the key players in India during the 17th and 18th Centuries. Exquisitely engraved, the charts reflect the best practices of Dutch maritime cartography. The VOC established a dedicated and highly organized hydrographic office that went to great efforts to obtain the best information on the navigation of the waters around South and Southeast Asia. The Company developed master charts of various regions that were continuously updated by intelligence supplied by ships’ captains returning to the Netherlands. For some generations, these charts generally remained in manuscript form so that their dissemination could be carefully controlled, so that their valuable intelligence would not fall into the hands of rival powers, such as the British East India Company (EIC) and the French East India Company. While certain details were occasionally leaked to commercial map printers, much of the most valuable information

      Chez Cl. J. B. Bauche, Paris 1753 - First edition. Duodecimo. In two volumes. In contemporary leather. Spine with five raised bands, gilt, each with red title vignettes. With marbled endpapers and fore-edge. (6), x, 261, (2) p. and 1 folding map of Louisiana and 5 plates; (4), 338 p. and 4 engraved maps (3 of them folding). First edition of the "Historic Memoirs of Louisiana" important and early history of Louisiana, considered the first reliable account of the state, with much information on the Indians. The number of plates vary, this copy has more than others, that makes it extremely scarce. With five fort maps, one of the the fort at New Orleans, and four fruit tree plates, and the fine folding map "Carte de la Louisiane" (by Chambon), that shows the French territories prior to the French and Indian War, many forts (e.g. Illinois, Natchez, Fort St. Pierre Yazoo, Fort Rosalie, S. Francois, Mobile, Fort des Alibamons, Pensacole) and early settlements (e.g. New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Biloxi, Paskagoula). The first volume describes the natural history of Louisiana, its climate, natural products, flora and fauna, and the customs, origins and religion of the indigenous Indians. The second volume concerns with the history of the state from 1687, the establishment of the French in the province, until 1740, the death of Robert de La Salle who named the territory of the Mississippi basin "La Louisiane" in honour of Louis XIV and claimed it for France. Some authorities erroneously attributed the book to Georges-Marie Butel-Dumont (1725-1788). It was actually edited by Abbé Jean Baptiste de Mascrier (1697-1760), loosely based on the manuscripts that Jean-François Benjamin Dumont de Montigny (1696-1760), a colonial engineering officer and farmer in French Louisiana, had written about his experiences in Louisiana.

Four engraved vignettes (including one on title-page), 2 engraved initials. Dampstaining in lower quarter, especially to half title and title page, then diminishing but continuing through most of the volume, becoming prominent again in final leaves. Small insignificant worm trace in lower blank margin of final 7 leaves, never affecting text. Overall in good condition. (16 ll.), 326 pp., (1 blank l.). *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of one of the best anthologies of eighteenth-century literature in Brazil. Borba de Moraes comments, "The scarcity of this volume has led literary historians writing on eighteenth century Brazilian poetry to mention in their studies only those poets whose works were reprinted by Varnhagen. They passed over others whose poems were perhaps more important, and in fact more representative of contemporary style." Many pieces appear here for the first and only time; some were published in later anthologies, such as Varnhagen's @Florilegio.Among the authors included is Manoel de Santa Maria Itaparica, an important Bahian poet, who contributed three sonnets (pp. 122-4), a @Canção funebre (pp. 125-7), and a Latin epigram (p. 128). Itaparica, a native of Bahia born in 1704, entered the monastery of Paraguaçu in 1720. Fr. Jaboatão states in his @Orbe serafico that if it were possible to collect Itaparica's poetical works, they would fill several volumes (quoted in Borba); however, all that now remain are the pieces in the @Relação panegyrica and one poem printed separately, the extremely rare @Eustachidos (n.p., (See Borba I, 421.)Various other contributors were members of the Brazilian Academia dos Esquecidos or Academia dos Renascidos, or both. José de Oliveira Serpa (1696-1758), who was born and died in Bahia, was a member of the Academia dos Esquecidos, and died just a few months before the founding of the Academia dos Renascidos. Eight of his poems are included (p.l. 7@r & 8@v, pp. 48, 49, 50, 51, 138-9, 140), along with eight works by his nephew Silvestre de Oliveira Serpa (p.l. 14@r, pp. 82, 83, 84, 118-21, 132-3, 134-5, 136-7. (On these two authors see Borba I, 17 and II, 793-4.) Antonio de Oliveira contributed three sonnets (p.l. 9@r, pp. 54, 55) as well as the @Estatua de ouro, que . D. João V . erigio nas immortaes, e gloriosas acçoens de sua heroica vida . (pp. 213-47), a sermon preached at Sta. Clara do Desterro in Bahia, which had already been printed in Lisbon in 1752. Oliveira was a member of the Esquecidos and the Renascidos, and although born in Lisbon, had moved to Brazil with his parents when very young. (See Borba II, 626-8, who lists 7 works for this author.)Manuel Fereira Neves, who had no works published separately (see Borba I, 144), contributed 14 works to this volume, among them two lengthy pieces: a "Romance heroico, e esdruxulo" (p.l. 13@r-v) and an "Elogium sepulchrale" (pp. 175-81). He was a member of the Renascidos. The @Culto metrico of José Pires de Carvalho e Albuquerque, often cited as a typical poem of the time, does not appear in this volume, but three other short works by this member of the Renascidos do (pp. 52, 53); according to the citations in Borba, they would seem to be the only other published works by this native of Bahia, b. 1701 (see Borba I, 18). The editor of the volume, João Borges de Barros, another member of the Renascidos and native of Bahia (b. 1706), has eight works included; Borba lists only one other work by him (see I, 84). Domingos da Silva Teles, a member of the Renascidos and chaplain at Guaíba, has six works in this volume (p.l. 8@r, 11@v-12@v, pp. 57, 58, 104-109, and 110-117), including the lengthy "Romance heroico," "Elegia," and "Egloga," but apparently had only one work published elsewhere (see [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Boston, 1753. Small quarto. Bound to style in antique three-quarter speckled calf, leather label, and marbled boards. Lower 3/8 of titlepage in expert facsimile (the entire title present, authors name and imprint in facsimile). Light foxing to a few leaves. Else very good. "The HISTORICAL MEMOIRS are regarded as one of the foundation stones in the relation between the Whites and Indians in the 18th century..." - Streeter. Hopkins, pastor of a church in Springfield, describes the mission near the intersection of the upper Housatonic River and the Connecticut-Massachusetts line, and its activities from 1734 to 1749. He gives an intimate and detailed picture, often on a day-by-day basis. The mission was conducted by the Rev. John Sergeant, originally recruited for the job by Stephen Williams, son of the "Redeemed Captive" and long active in Indian-white relations in western Massachusetts. This book is really a colonial diary. It is remarkable for its details of daily life, but especially in illustrating the degree to which the lives of Indians and British settlers intermingled in New England before 1750, on one hand; and how education and schooling was conducted, on the other. This book undermines all stereotypes of Indian/White encounter once the frontier had moved westward. There is no better picture of the relationships of the two races during this transitional period on the frontier of New England. This is an extremely rare book and is not listed in Field. In the Streeter copy the title-leaf and last two leaves are in facsimile, which is apparently the case with a number of other copies located. "One of the rarest books relating to New England" - Sabin.

        I. Carte particulière des Costes de Normandie. Depuis Dieppe jusqu'à la pointe de la Percée en Bessin.

      S.n.l.n.d. [Imp. Du Dépt. De la Marine,1753]. - Grande carte marine sur vergé fort (88 x 63 cm), sans nom d'auteur ni de date, avec les échelles de mesure des longitudes et des méridiens sur le pourtour, notamment celui de l'Isle de Fer, une échelle des distances en lieues marines, terrestres et en toises (pliure au centre avec brunissure à l'emplacement de l'onglet). Cette carte est extraite du "Neptune françois" ou "Recueil des cartes marines levées et gravées par ordre du Roy", de Jacques Nicolas Bellin, dont la première édition sortit des presses de l'Imprimerie royale en 1693. C'est à la demande de Colbert que fut envisagé Le Neptune, auquel collaborèrent les mathématiciens et astronomes de l'Académie des Sciences et les ingénieurs hydrographes de la Marine. Les longitudes de cette première édition avaient été calculées à partir du méridien de l'île de Fer, comme le prescrivait l'ordonnance de Louis XIII de 1634. Pour l'édition suivante, en 1753, les hydrographes du Dépôt de la Marine choisirent de faire partir la graduation du méridien de Paris, tout en faisant figurer également les méridiens de Londres, de l'île de Fer, du pic de Ténériffe et du cap Lézard.

         Dissertationes botanico-theologicae tres de herba borith, in quarum ... Altdorf, Jobst Wilhelm Kohles, 1705. 4to. With 1 engraved plate showing 3 numbered figures. Contemporary blind-tooled calf (with pointillé stamps), gold-tooled board edges. Rebacked. .

      Cf. BMC NH, p. 1055 (1st issue); Pritzel 5041(1st issue). The second, greatly expanded issue of the first and only edition of a Latin thesis on biblical botany, devoted to a Middle Eastern plant the author calls herba borith (soap plant) or Kali arabum, which Linnaeus gave its modern name Anabasis aphylla in 1753. Lange (1664-1731), a minister of the evangelical church in Altdorf, gives an account of the earlier literature, including that by Leonhard Rauwolf, who visited the Middle East in in the 1570s and published his description of the plant in 1582. Lange also gives an extensive analysis of biblical passages in German, Latin, Greek, Hebrew, Aramaic, Arabic and Syriac, making considerable demands on the printer's stock of non-Latin types. Parts 2 and 3 provide a detailed exegesis of Jeremiah 2:22 and Malachi 3:2, passages concerned with washing and soap. With two bookplates (ca. 1850). Slightly browned and with a small marginal chip in one leaf, but otherwise in very good condition. Rebacked as noted, with the binding worn at the edges, but the blind-tooling on the boards remains in very good condition. A curious analysis of biblical botany..

        Species Plantarum, exhibentes plantas rite cognitas, ad genera relatas, cum differentiis specificis, nominibus trivialibus, synonymis selectis, locis natalibus, secundum systema sexuale digestas.

      - Holmiae, impensis Laurentii Salvii, 1753. 2 volumes. 8vo (200 x 120mm). pp. (12), 1-560; (2), 561-1200, (32). Contemporary calf, gilt ornamented spines (skilfully rebacked). First edition of the most important work in the world's botanical literature, the foundation of binary nomenclature, and thus the starting point of modern nomenclature. There are two issues of the first volume of the first edition; the present one is the second issue, for which Linnaeus had revised and reprinted three leaves (i.e. E6, F5 & R2). It is therefore to be regarded as the definitive edition. Linnaeus himself named this work his "Magnum Opus". Many leaves have the English common names added in the margin in a contemporary hand. Title with some browning at the outer margin.Hulth 89; Hunt 548; Pritzel 5427; Soulsby 480a; Stafleu & Cowan 4769. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
