It is one of the few illustrated books printed by Bodoni.The engravings are made by the notable Italian artist Francesco Rosaspina after José Teixeira Barreto and are here in a later state, with much more added detail and uncoloured. Bodoni printed many variants of this book in different formats and with different states and colouring of the plates.The book is splendidly bound by the Parisian binder Rémy Petit who was active from 1855 till at least 1900. He had a binding on exposition on the Exposition Universelle of 1867 and is known to have made bindings for Victor Hugo.Fine copy with only a couple minor specks, some faint thumbing in the lower right corner of the first poem and a minor waterstain (14 x 0.5 cm), only visible at the back of the second plate. The binding in fine condition as well, with some negligible rubbing to the ends of the spine and the corners of the boards. Attractive copy, only slight trimmed.

Je vous fais mes amitiés et vous attend avec impatience. Moncey ». Le futur maréchal Moncey (1754-1842) avait été destitué par le futur maréchal Brune le 7 janvier 1801, mais demeura à son poste et remplaça Brune par intérim à la tête de l’armée d’Italie du 8 mars au 19 juin 1801.

      80 pages, 2 planches A Paris, chez Duchesne, 1754, in-8, 80 pages, 2 planches dépliantes gravées en taille-douce, basane havane de l'époque, dos lisse et fleuronné, pièce de titre rouge, armes au centre des plats, Édition originale de cet ouvrage peu courant, qui a pour objet l'enseignement de la construction de la voûte en brique ou en plâtre dite "à la Roussillon", autrement appelée Boveda Tabicada ou "voûte catalane", destinée à remplacer les charpentes en bois. Le comte d'Espié (1708-1792), officier de cavalerie et gouverneur de Muret en 1748, n'en est ni l'inventeur, ni le premier rapporteur : l'ouvrage est en effet pratiqué en Espagne depuis près de 400 ans et, avant lui, M. Tavenot fit lecture, le 19 juin 1747, d'un mémoire sur cette technique devant l'Académie Royale d'architecture, qui ne l'approuva pas. Il revient à Espié de lui avoir donné ses lettres de noblesse en rédigeant le premier traité théorique sur sa construction et en attirant "l'attention des architectes à l'égard de cette technique si économique et rationnelle" (Philippe Araguas). Lui-même fit voûter les combles de son hôtel de la rue Mage à Toulouse de cette manière. Armes de Rogier de Ludes au plat supérieur : d'or à la fasce d'azur chargée de trois étoiles d'argent, accompagnée de trois roses de gueule feuillées et tigées de sinople (OHR, pl. 541). Armes de Reims au plat inférieur, avec la devise de la ville "Dieu en soit garde" (OHR, pl. 1165, fer n°3). Jean-François Rogier de Ludes fut conseiller au Roi en la cour des monnaies de Paris et lieutenant des habitant de la ville de Reims, pour laquelle il fonda un prix de mathématique et de dessin. Il fit ériger vingt fontaines distribuant à Reims les eaux de la Vesle et il est à l'origine de l'érection de la place Royale.

        Poissons Ecrevisses et Crabes, de diverses couleurs et figures extraordinaires, que l'on trouve autour des Isles Moluques et sur les cotes des Terres Australes

      Amsterdam: Reinier and Josué Ottens, 1754. 2 volumes in one, folio. (17 1/4 x 10 3/4 inches). Title printed in red and black, engraved arms of George II of England on dedication. 100 hand-coloured engraved plates after Samuel Fallours (one folding, each showing two or more subjects). Uncut. Expertly bound to style in full period mottled calf, spine with raised bands in eight compartments, red morocco lettering piece in the second, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt, period marbled endpapers Provenance: Jacob Theodor Klein (1685-1759, manuscript receipt for the purchase of the book dated 1755); his son-in-law, Daniel Gralath (1708-1767, bookplate) One of the rarest and most desirable works of natural history, containing brilliantly hand coloured plates of marine life from the East Indies, at the time virtually unknown to Europe: this copy with provenance to an important European wunderkammer. This extraordinary work purports to show marine life from the East Indies at a time when the natural wildlife of that area was virtually unknown in Europe. Noted as one of very few pre-Linnaean works on fishes to be published in colour, the work was first published in 1719 in an edition of only 100 copies. Following Renard's death, the Ottens publishing firm purchased approximately thirty unbound copies of the first edition, as well as the original copperplates, from Renard's estate. They had the remaining plates hand coloured and printed approximately 70 additional sets, replaced the title-page with a new one, and added a preface by Aernout Vosmaer and a "Declaration" by Renard. This second edition, also limited to 100 copies, is noted for its superb hand colouring. Louis Renard (1678-1746) was a French Huguenot refugee who became a successful book seller and publisher based in Amsterdam, as well as a spy for the British Crown. The plates were engraved after drawings by Samuel Fallours, brought back to Amsterdam from Amboina in the East Indies by Frederik Julius Coyett, son of the Governor Baltazar Coyett. Fallours began his career as a soldier in the service of the Dutch East India Company, and later between 1707 and 1712, held the title of Associate Curate to the clergy. As early as 1703 his artistic abilities were discovered by several important officials, also in the employ of the Company. "When he (Fallours) showed his portfolio of watercolours to the Directors of the East India Company at Amsterdam, they could or would not believe that such fish really existed. So, to convince these gentlemen, Fallours had written a letter to the Reverend Francois Valentijn (1666-1727), who had also spent many years in the East Indies. In his letter, Fallours asked Valentijn to confirm to the Governors that the fishes which he had painted actually existed. Valentijn complied by writing on August 28th 1715, ... `I can assure you in all honesty that in the waters around Ambon and the other islands belonging to the Moluccan Archipelago I have observed a wide variety of fish whose colours are as variegated and brilliant as Fallours has painted. I have seen his watercolours and can vouch that these fishes have been drawn and coloured from life...'. Writing over one hundred years later, Bleeker remarked, 'Although these figures are partly exaggerated and partly unrecognizable, it later proved that practically every one of them is based on a natural object.' It was Louis Renard, one of the charges d'affaires of H.M. King George II of England in Amsterdam, who decided to publish this material" (Landwehr, pp. 44-45). The plates depict 416 fishes, 40 crustaceans, 2 insects, a dugong, and a mermaid. Despite their fanciful appearance, modern scientists have identified the species depicted in most of the illustrations (the mermaid excepted). The work contains no text apart from the engraved descriptions on the plates themselves, in which almost every fish is named and some assessed in terms of its edibility (with some descriptions including brief recipes for preparation). This copy with original provenance to Jacob Theodor Klein, a Danzig government official and noted naturalist, with his manuscript receipt for purchase dated 1755. Klein, who founded Danzig's botanical garden and who was a fellow of the Royal Society, corresponded with many eminent naturalists of the period and developed his own zoological system of nomenclature. By the 1720s, he had amassed a significant wunderkammer of live animals and taxidermy, as well as mineralogical specimens and exotic plants. Although the bulk of his museum was sold in 1740 to Margrave Friedrich of Brandenburg-Kulmbach, he was evidently still collecting books for his library. Following his death, his library, including this volume, passed to his son-in-law Daniel Gralath, a noted physicist and later Mayor of Danzig. A beautiful example of the most fantastic book on East Indian ocean life and "one of the most remarkable Dutch books with coloured plates" (Landwehr). Landwehr 159; Nissen ZBI 3361; Nissen Schone Fischbucher 103; cf. Pietsch, Fishes, Crayfishes, and Crabs... Baltimore: 1995, pp. 22-26.

        Der vom Frauenzimmer unschuldig verfolgte, geplagte und endlich ins gröste Elend gestürtzte Gelehrte oder wahrhaffte Geschichte eines nicht unbekannten Rechts-Gelehrten, einer grossen und Welt-berühmten Hansee-Stadt, aus dessen eigenhändigen hinterlassenen Nachrichten ans Licht gestellet [The scholar innocently hounded, tormented and finally plunged into deepest misery by a woman, or the true tale of a not entirely unknown legal scholar from a large and world-famous Hanseatic town, brought to light based on handwritten notes discovered after his death].

      Frankfurt und Leipzig: In Commission der Buchnerschen Handlung 1754 - Small octavo (16.8 × 10 cm). Later (late nineteenth-century) half parchment with hand-written title to spine; marbled boards; [3], 78 pp. Few old stains to gutter and some toning; else very good. First and only edition of this anonymously published German erotic novel, which contains possibly the earliest literary depiction of the "dumb blond" stereotype. It precedes the depiction in a 1775 satirical play of Rosalie Duthé (1748–1830), a Parisian courtesan typically cited as the first recorded "stereotypical blonde" in modern history (see, for instance, Joanna Pitman, On Blondes, 2003). The novel’s protagonist, Aquilius, a young lawyer from Hamburg, meets Hedwig, a striking beauty, “the most beautiful among blondes,” who captivates him immensely. Although he initially mistakes her silence for exhaustion or reticence, Aquilius soon discovers that Hedwig is unable to engage in any sensible conversation and explaims: “the head is beautiful, but it contains no brain” (“Der Kopf ist schön, nur fehlt das Gehirn,” p. 43). The novel contains numerous other misogynistic depictions of the many women Aquilius encounters, nearly all of which are depicted as taking advantage of the noble-minded and polite young jurist. Finally, driven into desperation, Aquilius agrees to marry the widow of a lawyer, who drives him to suicide by her controlling and demeaning behavior. Ronald Dietrich cites the text as a particularly interesting case combining the literary theme of the naive scholar with prejudice toward women: "Den Höhepunkt misogyner Darstellung im Zusammenhang mit dem Gelehrten stellt möglicherweise Talinus' 1754 erschienene und bereits im Titel aufschlußreiche Schrift . dar. Hier stößt man nicht von ungefähr auf die vielleicht erste Blondine der Literatur" (Dietrich, Der Gelehrte in der Literatur, p. 184). With the bookplate of the Dutch collector François Gerard Waller (1867–1934), as well as an earlier bookplate of H. Heerdinck, to front pastedown. Hayn/Gotendorf VII, 525 ("very rare"). Bibliotheca Germanorum erotica, p. 133. Rare, with KVK, OCLC locating only the copy at Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

L'illustration comporte une carte dépliante des voyages de Robinson et 21 figures non signées. La première édition française comprenant les 3 volumes date de 1721, peu après l'originale anglaise de 1719. Titre du tome second : La vie et [.] contenant son retour dans son île, & ses autres nouveaux voyages. Titre du troisième tome : Reflexions serieuses et importantes de Robinson Crusoe faites pendant les avantures surprenantes de sa vie. Avec sa vision du monde angelique. Pages de titres en rouge et noir. Les figures sont légendées, naïves et très évocatrices. Reliures en plein veau marbré et glacé d'époque. Dos à nerfs ornés. Pièces de titre en maroquin beige, pièces de tomaison à la cire noire. Les tomaisons des tomes II et III frottées, la troisième rendue illisible. Un coin légèrement émoussé. Petit manque au mors inférieur en queue du tome III. Quelques pages plus brunies dans chacun des tomes et quelques pages avec rousseurs, mais dans l'ensemble plutôt frais. Bel exemplaire, ce qui est assez rare pour ce titre qu'on trouve le plus souvent relié modestement et en mauvais état. Robinson Crusoe est l'acte fondateur du grand roman anglais comme l'avait été un siècle plus tôt Don Quichotte pour l'espagne. Don Quichotte puisait dans la littérature chevaleresque son fond, Defoe prit le sien dans la littérature de voyages. On oublie trop souvent la seconde partie du roman, une circumnavigation aboutissant à une réflexion existentielle, et qui donne une valeur universelle au roman. Robinson est un homme moderne, son esprit est aux dimensions du monde, et son ingéniosité en fait un technicien. Depuis longtemps l'oeuvre a valeur de mythe.

      - LIVRES Première édition autorisée et la première à contenir le texte du célèbre anatomiste. Cet ouvrage a fait l'objet de plusieurs ré-éditions jusqu'en 1754. Il s'agit du premier atlas d?anatomie utilisant ce procédé de gravures à recouvrement. Auparavant il y eut quelques timides essais (Vésale - 1542). Les planches ont été dessinées par Remmelin lui-même et gravées par Lucas Kilian, le meilleur graveur d'Augsburg. Le travail nécessita la taille de huit planches qui furent ensuite découpées puis assemblées par petits volets ! La première planche nous montre l'homme et la femme, ainsi que les organes génitaux de celle-ci, l'intérieur de l'oreille et celui de l'?il; Dieu surveillant l'ensemble. La seconde planche nous fait découvrir les organes de l'homme, et la troisième, ceux de la femme. L'ouvrage est dédié à Philipp Hainhofer, le célèbre collectionneur d'art proche du duc de Poméranie et diplomate. Ses armes apparaissent en haut de la page de titre. Plein parchemin d'époque. L'intérieur est très frais, deux feuillets ont été soigneusement réenmargés. in-folio : 26 pp. chiffrées 28 signées A à N , dont le frontispice et 3 planches à volets mobiles superposés.

        Discours politiques. Traduits de l'anglois par Mr. de M***.

      Amsterdam: Chez J. Schreuder & Pierre Mortier le Jeune,, 1754-57. 5 volumes, octavo (150 x 92 mm). Late 19th century ribbed cloth and marbled boards, cloth tips, spines lettered gilt, sprinkled edges. Titles printed in red and black, with engraved vignette, woodcut head and tail pieces and initials. Ownership inscription U. Celsing (slightly trimmed) at foot of first title. Margins trimmed fairly close, occasional light spotting and a few pencil marginalia; a very good set. First edition of this important series of economic publications, published in view of the increasing interest in works of political economy appearing in France, England, and Holland. In 1754 Schreuder and Mortier published the first volume, Hume's Political Discourses. Owing to the growing interest and the relative scarcity of earlier publications, the publishers decided to continue the series, issuing each volume with two title-pages, one a general title-page to the series Discours politiques, the other a title-page for the first work of the relevant volume. A sixth volume was published in 1758, rarely found with the set, without a general title-page, but the preface to that volume clearly shows that volume to be an addition to the series in the view of the publishers. Details of the collection are as follows: Volume I: HUME, David. Discours politiques de Mr. David Hume. Amsterdam, 1754. Volume II: O'HEGUERTY, Comte de Magnières. Essai sur les Intérêts du Commerce maritime. FORBONNAIS, François Véron de. Considérations sur les finances d'Espagne. FORBONNAIS, François Véron de. Réflexions sur la nécessité de comprendre l'étude du commerce et des finances dans celle de la politique. BOLINGBROKE, Lord. Réflexions politiques sur l'état present de l'Angleterre, principalement à l'égard de ses taxes et de ses dettes, et sur leurs causes et leurs conséquences. LE BLANC. Ouvrages sur le commerce, les finances, etc., qui ont paru depuis deux à trois ans. Amsterdam, 1756. Volume III: DISCOURS prononcés au parlement d'Angleterre, dans la chambre des pairs, pour et contre la liberté du commerce au Levant, avec le bill, ou loi intervenue à ce sujet. CANTILLON, Richard. Essai sur la nature du commerce en général. Amsterdam, 1756. Volumes IV and V: GOUDAR, Ange. Les Intérêts de la France mal entendus dans la branche de l'agriculture. Amsterdam, 1757. Takumi Tsuda, in his Cantillon, Essai de la Nature du Commerce en général, (1979), stresses the rarity of these volumes: "Les Discours politiques édités par Mauvillon sont devenus si rares aujourd'hui, que les renseignements sur cette collection sont souvent confus et contradictoires". He gives a detailed list of the collection (pp. 417-8), and a list of locations of various volumes. The British Library has only the first five volumes; interestingly, it was this edition of Cantillon that Karl Marx read while researchjing in the British Museum for Das Kapital.

        Missal - Exquisite Leather Bound Volume with Elaborate Gilt Tooling and Working Clasps from Admont Abbey in Austria - Text in Latin

      Austria, 1754. Title: Missale Monasticum Pauli V. Pontificis Max. Auctoritate Recognitum, Pro omnibus sub Regula SS. Patris Benedicti Militantibus; In Quo Missae Sanctorum ad normam novi Kalendarii Auctoritate Apostolica approbati ordinate propriis locis disponuntur. [Monastic Missal of Pope Paul V, Highest Pontiff. Acknowledged authority, for all under the rule of Father Benedict Militantibus; The Holy Mass according the the New Calendar, Approved by the Apostolic Authority of the Saints] Author: [M. Heytbreuck, Baglioni] Venice: Ex Typographia Balleoniana, 1754. Qto. xxxix, 492 pages, in black and red print, featuring 3 fine full page allegorical woodcut engravings, small woodcut engraved illustrated monograms at the start of each subject, music notes for hymns and incantations. Also with a scant few nineteenth century leafs for special ceremonies, skilfully tipped-in. All text is in Latin. Bound together with "Commune Sanctorum" xcvii [an additional 97 pages], printed in 1748; and an undated contemporary work titled "Missae Sanctorum Propriae Archi-Dioecesis Salisburgensis, et Monasterii Admontensis" being yet an additional 16 pages. Full leather binding, gilt tooled motifs front and rear boards, gilt Christogram 'IHS' to front, gilt monogram 'MARIA' to rear, 7 raised bands and further gilt tooling to spine, complete with two working clasps with a carved motif mounted on two leather bands. Volume measures approximately 24 x 32,5 x 6 cm. Some indications of age and ecclesiastic usage, otherwise very good original condition, a splendidly ornate and solid antique leather binding. The present volume boasts a sound and visually pleasing mid-eighteenth century binding, with hole and pin type clasps which at the time remained in use virtually only for papal books and Bibles made in Germany. The Latin text which it has protected for well over two hundred years now, reveals both enlightened and dark religious teachings imposed on the general population. By its title, the secondary 16 page document bound herein suggests that this volume was used by an eighteenth century priest of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Salzburg, in Austria, and notably connected to the ancient Benedictine Abbey at Admont. It is titled, "Missae Sanctorum Propriae Archi-Dioecesis Salisburgensis, et Monasterii Admontensis" [Holy Mass of the Archdiocese of Salzburg, and the Monastery of Admont.] A primary source work of eighteenth century liturgy, including orations, incantations, prayers, fastidious ceremonies, and more, this volume is an original Latin missal, a work produced by the Roman Catholic Church and being the authoritative book of prayers and rites to be used and strictly followed in by the priests leading Mass. Covering an entire year, several special ceremonies and rituals observed are outlined, in celebrating the Holy birth, the resurrection, and so forth. We find in these pages some most fascinating examples, such as the "Missae Pro Defunctus" [Mass for the Deceased], and "Missa Contra Paganos" [Mass Against the Pagans]. The Roman Catholic Church anti-pagan masses have been used historically to rally crusades, for example in the case of Pope Clement V, who on 4 April 1312, promulgated a crusade against the Venetians and the Turks. Anti-Turkism was even more overt in 1453-54, particularly in the form of liturgical masses against Turks, called "Missa Contra Turcos," and again in 1456 by Pope Calixtus III. The Benedictine monastery Admont Abbey contains the largest monastic library in the world, as well as a long-established scientific collection. It is the oldest remaining monastery in Styria, located in the town of Admont, and widely known for its Baroque architecture, art, and manuscripts. Dedicated to Saint Blaise, Admont Abbey was founded in 1074 by Archbishop Gebhard of Salzburg, it was in the 17th and 18th centuries, contemporary to the present volume, that the abbey reached a high point of artistic productivity, with the works of the world-famous ecclesiastical embroiderer Brother Benno Haan and the sculptor Joseph Stammel. Approximately one hundred years after this volume was printed and bound, in April 1865, a disastrous fire destroyed almost the entire monastery. While the monastic archives burned, the library was mostly salvaged. Reconstruction began the following year but was still not complete by 1890. The library hall at Admont Abbey was built in 1776 and is the largest monastery library in the world, containing approximately one third of the monastery's entire holdings of some 200,000 volumes. The abbey possesses over 1,400 manuscripts, the oldest of which, from St. Peter's Abbey in Salzburg, were the gift of the founder, Archbishop Gebhard, and accompanied the first monks to settle here, as well as over 900 incunabulae. Pope Paul V (17 September 1550 - 28 January 1621), born Camillo Borghese, was Pope from 16 May 1605 to his death in 1621. He is best remembered today as the Pope who, through the Roman Inquisition, persecuted Galileo Galilei for his support of Copernicus' theories of heliocentrism. The Christogram IHS, seen on the front of the volume, is a monogram or combination of letters that forms an abbreviation for the name of Jesus Christ, traditionally used as a Christian symbol. As in the case of Chrismon, the term Christogram comes from the Latin phrase "Christus Monogramma", meaning "monogram of Christ". In the Latin-speaking Christianity of medieval Western Europe (and so among Catholics and many Protestants today), the most common Christogram became "IHS" or "IHC", denoting the first three letters of the Greek name of Jesus, iota-eta-sigma. History of Book Clasps The use of book clasps appears to be as old as the codex itself. In its earliest form, which was Coptic bindings, the book clasp consisted of a strap and bone system. Book clasps consisting of a plaited thong with loops to fit over bone or metal pegs seems to have been used in England at least as early as the 12th century. English book binders of the 14th century began using two straps instead of just one, something which had been done earlier and more often on the Continent of Europe. The hole and pin type was more or less abandoned early in the 14th century and replaced by clasps and catches attached to the fore edge. Later, the metal part of the clasp was the full thickness of the book and was sometimes attached to the board by means of a metal hinge. In bindings of the 15th and 16th centuries, and probably earlier, the location of the book clasps is a reasonably accurate indication of the country of origin. The use of metal clasps began to decline early in the 16th century, however brass clasps were still used for some books bound with wooden boards. Silver clasps and corner pieces were often used on small Bibles and other devotional works as late as the late 17th and early 18th centuries. For certain German bindings, however, mainly Bibles and pontifical volumes, clasps were used continuously until the end of the 18th century. . Very Good.

        A Sett [sic] of Anatomical Tables, with Explanations, and an Abridgement, of the Practice of Midwifery, with a View to Illustrate a Treatise on that Subject, and a Collection of Cases.

      London: [D. Wilson], 1754. <p>First edition, a very fine copy, of Smellie’s great obstetrical atlas, “which is very rare and is said to have been issued in only 100 copies” (Heirs of Hippocrates). “The plates in this classic of obstetrical illustration are far superior to any that had appeared before. They give everywhere a masterly representation, true to nature, of the relations of the parts of mother and child, and have perhaps contributed more to spreading correct ideas of labor than all the books that have ever been written on the subject” (Grolier Medicine). “Whcn Smellie’s Theory and Practice of Midwifery was published, Jan van Rymsdyk had already completed a series of twenty-six anatomical illustrations for use in Smellie’s obstetrical lectures, and in an advertisement published at the end of the work, Smellie announced his intention to publish these drawings in an atlas to be paid for by subscription. The atlas was published two years later, with the number of plates increased to thirty-nine, eleven of which had been supplied by Pieter Camper, professor of medicine at Francker in the Netherlands. Smellie was the leading forceps practitioner in London, and several of the plates illustrate the use of this instrument in various presentations of the fetus. These engravings are the first accurate anatomical illustrations of the fetus in utero. Three of the plates are devoted to obstetric instruments, with plate XXXVII illustrating the Smellie forceps, a short, straight instrument with leather-covered blades, which was widely used for many years” (Norman).</p> <p>&#10087; Grolier, <em>One Hundred Books Famous in Medicine</em> 43b; Norman 1955; <em>Heirs of Hippocrates</em> 522.</p> <p>“Smellie’s (1697-1763) Sett [sic] of Anatomical Tables … was designed to illustrate as accurately as possible the female pelvis and uterus. Smellie, the “master of British Midwifery,” is stated to have been the foremost obstetrician of the eighteenth century, and made a number of contributions to the field. In the Preface, Smellie gave his rationale for this work. “As in a long course of teaching and practice in Midwifery, I hope I may without vanity say, that I have done something towards reducing that Art, into a more simple and mechanical method than has hitherto been done. I have attempted to explain the same in my Treatise of the Theory and Practice of Midwifery …” He continued, that he was induced to prepare this volume as, “… most of the representations hitherto given … were in many respects deficient.” Smellie assured the reader, “the greatest part of the figures were taken from Subjects prepared on purpose, to show everything that might conduce to the improvement of the young Practitioner …”</p> <p>“Smellie described more accurately than any previous writer the mechanical relations of the fetal head to that of the mother’s pelvis during parturition, i.e. the mechanism of labor. He also stressed the importance of precise pelvic measurements, and was the first to measure the internal or diagonal conjugate. Importantly for the <em>accoucher</em>, he laid down rules regarding the safe use of obstetrical forceps which remain valid today. He introduced the steel “English” lock on the forceps and, coincidentally with André Levret (1703-1780) of Paris, added the pelvic curve. He apparently was the first to use forceps to rotate the fetal head, and to use forceps on the aftercoming head of a breech delivery. He also invented several important obstetrical instruments.</p> <p>“The anatomical plates of this elephant folio, and classic of illustrated obstetrics, are far superior to any that had appeared previously, and present masterly representations of the relations of the parts of the mother and child at several stages of gestation. The <em>Sett of Anatomical Tables…, </em>(the <em>Sett </em>of which was a misprint, corrected in later editions) may have achieved more in the spread of correct ideas of labor and parturition than all of the works previously written on the subject. Undoubtedly, it also played an important role in Smellie’s rise to fame. Of the 39 plates, 25 or 26 are by the Dutch artist and comparative anatomist Johannes van Riemsdijk (also Jan van Riemsdyk, van Rymsdyk, fl. 1750-1788). In fact, this was the first of the three great eighteenth century obstetric folios illustrated by van Riemsdijk.</p> <p>“Smellie’s decision to produce this atlas from anatomic dissections could not have been undertaken lightly, and the expense must have been great. The artist later created the illustrations for Charles Nicholas Jenty’s (fl. 1720-1770) <em>Uteri praegnantis un ad partum</em> (1757), William Hunter’s (1718-1783) <em>Gravid Uterus</em> (1774), as well as for a quarto, of Thomas Denman (1733-1815). Eleven of the plates were by Pieter Camper (1722-1789), one of his students from Holland and anatomist at Franeker. Smellie himself is believed to have drawn the illustrations for two plates (37 and 39). All were beautifully engraved by Charles Grignon (1714-1810), a French artist who lived in London. Among the plates is the first illustration of abnormal presentations. Plate VIII illustrates the fetus at 6 or 7 months of gestation, with its placenta (K) and surrounding amniotic membranes (L), within the uterine wall (A) and bones of the pelvis (B, C, D). In Plate X, Smellie depicts near-term twins, with their individual placentas (K) and membranes (L), within the uterus (A, I) and the bones of the pelvis (B, C, D).</p> <p>“Smellie was born in Lanarkshire, Scotland. Following an apprenticeship with a local apothecary-physician, naval service, and general practice, he studied for a year in Paris. In 1741, he moved to London where he taught obstetrics in his home. To teach obstetrics on a scientific basis, Smellie used a mannequin fabricated from pelvic and fetal bones covered with leather. Practicing among the poor, Smellie became a popular teacher. In his Preface to “A Treatise …” [he states that] during one decade, he gave over 280 courses of midwifery “… for the instruction of more than 900 pupils, exclusive of female students: and in that series of courses, 1150 poor women have been delivered in presence of those who attended me; and supported during their lying-in, by the stated collection of my pupils: over and above those difficult cases to which we were often called by midwives, for the relief of the indigent. These considerations, together with that of my own private practice, which hath been pretty extensive, will, I hope, screen me from the imputation of arrogance, with regard to the task I have undertaken; and I flatter myself, that the Performance will not be unserviceable to mankind” (Smellie, <em>Treatise</em>, pp. v-vi). Among his pupils was the celebrated William Hunter” (Longo & Reynolds, pp. 138-140).</p> <p>“Smellie’s library, preserved at Lanark, Scotland, includes his own copy of the <em>Sett of anatomical tables, </em>the title-leaf of which displays his manuscript correction of the misspelled “sett.” The original drawings for this work were acquired by Smellie’s most famous pupil, William Hunter, and are preserved in the Hunterian Collections at the University of Glasgow Library” (Norman).</p> <p>Little is known about the illustrator Jan van Rymsdyk. He was probably born in the Netherlands between 1700 and 1730, and he lived and worked in England between 1745 and 1780. In 1778, with his son Andreas, he published at London a series of plates from antiquities and curiosities in the British Museum, <em>Museum Britannicum: being an exhibition of a great variety of antiquities and natural curiosities, belonging to that noble and magnificent cabinet, the British Museum : illustrated with curious prints, engraved after the original designs, from nature, other objects : and with distinct explanations of each figure</em>. In this book van Rymsdyk tells us something about his approach to his work: “there are three different ways of imitating an Object; the first is to dispose Nature at a tolerable Distance, suppose that of Fifteen Feet, where all the minutiae is lost, and only the Form, and grand Masses are to be seen; this Distance is in general approved of large Works, which are to be seen on high, as the Pictures on the Veiling at White-Hall, British Museum etc. The second or medium Distance, is where the small parts are more visible, as at Five Feet, or thereabouts; Painters never, or seldom exceed this, but the third is, where the Different Substances, and every minute Part is discovered by being brought so near the Eye. This Distance I was obliged to make use of, for to represent Nature in its greatest Beauty; the other two distances are what I would call only representing the Effect of Nature, as she appears at the Distance; or the Distance for an Artist to get a good deal of Money, and use much Art, but shew [show] little of Nature.”</p> <p>In the conclusion to his <em>Museum Britannicum</em> van Rymsdyk writes that he has taken “a dislike to those Anatomical Studies etc. in which I was employed.” He also felt he had been ill-treated by William Hunter, whom he accused of having discouraged him from becoming a “real” painter. There is no mention of van Rymsdyk in William Hunter’s <em>Anatomy of the Human Gravid Uterus</em>. The preface merely refers to “the ingenious artist who made the drawings and engravings”. Nevertheless van Rymsdyk remains one of the greatest of all medical illustrators.</p> <p> </p> <p>Garrison-Morton 6154.1; Grolier Medicine 43B; Heirs of Hippocrates 522; NLM/Blake, p.420; Norman 1955; Russell 753 (recording more than 14 editions); Waller 9012.

      - xii, 396 pp. 8vo, cont. mottled calf, spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Paris: G. Martin, 1754. A rare sale catalogue of the library of a Fermier général. According to the Preface by Gabriel Martin, La Haye (1684-1753) was a son of one of the Sécretaires du Roi; he became a Fermier General in 1718 and served in this capacity until his death in 1753 at the age of sixty-nine. He was extremely successful and acquired the Hôtel Lambert from the Marquis du Châtelet in 1745 and lived there in great luxury with a large staff. He formed one of the major collections of paintings of the time and his library was considered to be one of the best when compared to those of his contemporaries.

        Plan General des deux villes de Nancy et des Nouveaux Edifices que sa Majeste le Roy de Pologne, Duc de Lorraine et de Bar &c.

      Belpreys, Nancy, 1754 - Nancy during the reign of Duke Stanislaus Large engraved plan on four sheets joined. The plan is dedicated to Stanislaus I King of Poland. Stanislaus, who had abdicated his throne in 1738, following the War of Polish Succession, was granted in compensation the Duchy of Lorraine. Under his nominal rule, Nancy experienced growth and a flowering of Baroque culture and architecture. With his death in 1766, the duchy became a regular French province and Nancy lost its position as a residential capital city with its own princely court and patronage.The plan shows the Duke?Äôs ambitious building scheme centred around the palace square which was designed to link the old medieval town with the new town built by Charles III in the seventeenth century. The square would also be a ?Äúplace royale?Äù to honour his son-in-law, Louis XV of France. The design linked two handsome buildings that already existed: the H?¥tel de Ville (now centred on its grand square) and the H?¥tel du Gouvernement. The seat of city government and the seat of ducal government faced each other as complements through a series of rational, symmetrical but varied urban spaces, unequalled in Europe at the time. Elevations of the buildings surround the present plan, together with the statue of Louis XV and the Triumphal Arch. Below is a key to the plan.Rare OCLC records one institutional example in the BNF. 800 by 1230mm. (31.5 by 48.5 inches).
