TIRION, Isaak (publisher)
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, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hôpital général de la charité (Lyon, France)
Lyon, Aimé Delaroche, 1753 - In-4 de 134 pp. Plein veau de l'époque. , basane fauve marbrée, dos à nerfs cloisonné et fleuronné, tranches rouges (reliure de l'époque). La date indiquée au titre est souvent 1742, mais la liste des recteurs va de 1533 à décembre 1753. En fait, il exista à partir de 1742 plusieurs tirages successifs de ce catalogue, actualisés en fonction des élections (jusqu'en 1764 au moins), mais dont la date demeurait 1742, et qui comportaient en revanche des paginations différentes (de 130 à 161). Les irrégularités des catalogues de bibliothèques proviennent de là. Issu de l'Aumône générale, l'Hôpital général de la Charité de Lyon fut fondé en 1531, après la Grande Disette, et servit de modèle à toutes les "Charités" du royaume, dont la finalité, rappelons-le, n'était pas d'abord médicale, mais était orientée vers le "renfermement des pauvres".

RAMSAY Michel Andre
S. l. (tip. Raimondo di Sangro), 1753. In 8, pp. XXXII + 256 con 2 tavole fuori testo. (Frontespizio e antiporta incise da F. Sesone, l'antiporta su disegno di N. Cochin). Piena pergamena coeva. Rarissima edizione della tipografia impiantata a Napoli da Raimondo Di Sangro Principe di Sansevero e che aveva sede nel suo palazzo. Probabilmente una delle ultime edizioni pubblicate da questa stamperia massonica. In effetti nel 1751 Carlo III, su spinte papali, mise al bando le logge massoniche napoletane, delle quali il Principe era gran Maestro, bloccando cosi' anche l'attivita' della tipografia. La traduzione di questo testo, considerato per lungo tempo una pietra miliare del sapere massonico, era stata commissionata ad Annibale Antonini, giureconsulto che molto aveva viaggiato, in Olanda, Germania, Scozia e che in Francia era entrato in contatto con studiosi massonici. I viaggi di Ciro rappresentano un percorso iniziatico alla ricerca della sapienza, concetto che e' illustrato anche nell'antiporta, incisa su disegno di N. Cochin (autore peraltro del frontespizio dell'Encyclopedie). Manca a Simoni (che cita altre ed.: Venezia, 1729; Padova, 1781 e a Graesse (che cita una ed. : Napoli 1756). ITA

(1) 302pp. et (4) 252pp., 2 volumes reliés. - nuova edizione - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Édition 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 parties 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 tomaisons en maroquin tabac. Mors supérieur du tome II étroitement fendu en tête et queue. Travail de vers sur un nerf du tome I, deux trous de vers. Manque le coin droit de la page 239 avec perte de quelques mots.

1753. In-4 (26 cm) (2) III (1) 73 (5) XI c. (di tav.). Red printed firstpage. XVI 125 (3) (1) XXXIX c. (carte di tav. incise, 5 ripiegate). Full leather. ELLIS, JOHN (1710?-1776), naturalist, whom Linnæus termed a 'bright star of natural history' and 'the main support of natural history in England,' was born in Ireland about 1710. This is admitted by Sir J. E. Smith (Linnæan Correspondence, i. 79), in correction of his previous statement in Rees's 'Encyclopædia' that Ellis was a native of London. Ellis was in business as a merchant in London, with, it is stated, but little success, until in 1764 he obtained the appointment of agent for West Florida, to which was added in 1770 the agency for Dominica. This brought him many correspondents, and he used his opportunities to import various American seeds. In 1754 he became a fellow of the Royal Society, and in the following year established his reputation as one of the most acute observers of his time by the publication of 'An Essay towards the Natural History of the Corallines,' London, 4to. This work was translated into French in the following year; and though his views were opposed by Dr. Job Baster and but imperfectly comprehended by Linnæus, he established by it the animal nature of this group of organisms. In 1768 the Copley medal of the Royal Society was awarded to Ellis for these researches. In 1770 he published 'Directions for bringing over Seeds and Plants from the East Indies. ... To which is added the figure and description of a new sensitive plant called Dionæa muscipula,' in which he accurately describes the mechan … [Click Below for Full Description]

Seymour, James, and Thomas Spencer (artists)
Arundel and London, Thomas Butler, 1751, 1753. Oblong folio (310 x 370 mm). 30 engraved sheets, with 30 (of 34) portraits of thoroughbred race-horses (lacking nos. 10, 15, 31 and 34). Old half calf with marbled covers. A spectacular, exceedingly rare album illustrating the starting point of horse racing in England, when native mares were crossbred with imported oriental stallions. W. S. Sparrow notes, in 1922, "rare, no doubt, because so many copies have been broken up in order that the prints might be sold one by one". The integral engraved text surrounding the image of horse and jockey provides the history and breeding of the subjects of the portraits. The first three horses depicted in this charming album are direct descendants of the three foundation stallions of the modern Thoroughbred breed, namely the Godolphin Arabian (Bajazet, plate 2), the Darley Arabian (Childers, plate 3), and the Byerly Turk (Old Partner, plate 1). All of the other 23 race horses described here trace back to these three stallions just imported into England from the Middle East, as well. According to Pickerell, "all 500,000 of the world's thoroughbred racehorses are descended from 28 ancestors, born in the 18th century", of which, according to Peter Willett, about 50% have Arabian bloodlines, with the remainder evenly divided between Turkoman and Barb breeding. - James Seymour is recognized as one of the earliest English sporting artists. He was the son of a wealthy goldsmith and diamond merchant who supplied the plate for racing trophies. Seymour was passionate about racing and, in addition to … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Nürnberg, J.M. Seligmann, 1753 (-65)]. 4to (215 x 175mm). pp. 1-28; pp. 1-28 (twice present, with Latin- and German text). With 21 beautifully handcoloured engraved plates, some heightened in gold. Later half cloth, green marbled sides. A very scarce work which remained unfinished. It was issued in parts and is hardly ever found complete. The present copy does not have the engraved title. Ward and Carozzi no. 1980 list a copy with 36 pages and 26 plates, the British Museum (Nat. Hist.) copy comprises the same number of pages and plates and the Vienna Natural History Museum has 38 plates. The Carl Krotki copy had 26 plates. The full number of plates and pages agreed upon seems to be 42 coloured plates with 52 pages of text, see Brunet and Cobres. However a few copies have 46 plates, the last 4 plates were published a few years after plate 42 was published. In June 2006 a copy from the Pierre Berès collection was sold in Paris with 46 plates.Schmidel was a famous mineralogist-botanist editing Gesner's posthumous botanical publications. He was professor of pharmacology at Erlangen and served as physician to Margrave Carl Alexander.The plates of the above work are outstanding and belong to the most attractive mineralogical plates ever made. "Gauthier d'Agoty, in his prospectus, discussed the difficulty involved in rendering minerals in color. . He does make an exception here for the work of 'Mr. Schmiedel', whose handcoloured plates showing mineral specimens he acknowledges to be among the best we have in this genre" (Wilson. Mineral books p. 67). [Attributes: Hard Cover]
