        The case of marriages between near kindred particularly considered, with respect to the doctrine of scripture, the law of nature, and the laws of England. With some observations relating to the late Act to prevent Clandestine Marriages>.

      London: J. Whiston and B. White. MDCCLVI [1756]. 8vo., xix + (1) + 146pp., tiny perforations in a couple of leaves affecting partially two or three letters on both recto and verso of G4 and with loss of two or three letters on both recto and verso of H6, sense unimpaired, well bound fairly recently in calf-backed marbled boards, spine gilt with raised bands and label. A very good, crisp, copy in spite of the very minor faults. First edition. Sweet & Maxwell I. p.498(#8). The Marriage Act> of 1753, or An Act for the better preventing of clandestine marriage,> popularly known as Lord Hardwicke's Marriage Act> (26 Geo.II.C.33) was the first statutory legislation in England and Wales to require a formal ceremony of marriage. It came into force on 25 March 1754. The Act had been precipitated by a dispute about the validity of a Scottish marriage, although pressure to address the problem of clandestine marriage had been growing for some time. Fry records that 'the ensuing treatise was written a considerable time since, and the greatest part of it printed off last winter, though not published till now.'

In The British Herbal he did not consistently follow the new taxonomic system, the book contains a number of pseudo-binomials. However, the generic names are designated as such and must be accepted for botanical nomenclature. Hill\'s criticisms of Linnaeus, however, were not all of an adverse nature. Often he did not stint his praise, and he did not fail, after describing each Genus, to mention its position in the Linnaean System. Although opposed to the Linnaean system, to Hill falls the credit of introducing it into England. Rubbed, corners little bumped. Re-backed and flying end papers renewed a longer time ago. On end papers name of a previous owner and sign of a removed exlibris. Small tears at the leaf with frontispiece (distant to the plate) and with plate 41 (distant to the plate). Old water stain at lower and inner margin of frontispiece, hardly affecting the plate. The title little dusty. In the text numerous numbers of corresponding plates by very fine old hand.

      [Madrid, 1756. Maltese cross at head of title. Folio. Dbd. Contemporary manuscript annotation in ink and later pencil annotation on first page. Accomplished in manuscript at Buen Retiro, Spain on Feb. 13, 1756, signed by Joachim Joseph Vazquez y Morales, with additional manuscript annotations. Manuscript inscriptions on recto and verso of integral blank leaf. Extremely light dampstaining in margins, occasional minor soiling. A very good copy. A rare broadsheet proclamation by Ferdinand VI, King of Spain, confirming that the law, recorded earlier in the RECOPILACION DE LAS INDIAS, outlining the method of reviewing the administration and recording the accounts of the hospitals in the New World maintained by the religious order of St. John of God is to be observed in a precise and punctual manner. The Hospital Brothers of St. John of God were present in America, most notably New Spain and Peru, beginning in the early 17th century. Following the initial 16th-century wave of evangelization represented by the Franciscans, Dominicans, Augustinians, Mercedarians, and Jesuits, the Hospital Brothers was one "of another group of orders, of varying characteristics but largely devoted to caring for the sick and the destitute in the cities. Their very existence attested the new needs of an increasingly complex colonial society" (CAMBRIDGE HISTORY OF LATIN AMERICA). This copy, accomplished in manuscript in Buen Retiro on Feb. 13, 1756, is signed by Joachim Joseph Vazquez y Morales as representative of the King of Spain with the inscription, "Yo El Rey," and the annotation, "Por mand[a]do del Rey." Manuscript inscriptions on the recto and verso of the integral blank leaf attest to the document being reviewed by the Spanish colonial government in Santiago de Chile in 1757. A rare proclamation concerning the work of the Hospital Brothers of St. John of God in the New World. Not in Medina BHA or Palau, nor on OCLC.

        The British herbal: An history of plants and trees, natives of Britain, cultivated for use, or raised for beauty

      London: Pr. for T. Osborne & J. Shipton, J. Hodges, J. Newbery, et al. Folio (41.3 cm, 16.25"). Frontis., [4], 536 pp.; 75 plts.. 1756 [?-1757] First edition of this impressive herbal by the prolific and energetic botanist who first introduced the Linnaean system of nomenclature to Great Britain — a polemical figure whose failed acting career and disputes with members of the Royal Society led to academic snubbing despite his notable contributions to science and literature. This work was originally issued in 52 parts between January 1756 and January 1757, and appears here in its first book-form edition, with a title-page printed in red and black (the title-page is dated 1756 as it was issued with the first part, as per Henrey). Entries cover general plant descriptions along with information on medicinal usages; exotic species grown in Britain are included along with the "natives" of the title. => 75 copper-engraved plates by Boyce, Darly and Edwards, Benning, and other hands follow the text, each plate packed with images of multiple plants (uncolored here). The frontispiece, "The Genius of Health receiving the tributes of Europe, Asia, Africa, and America, and delivering them to the British Reader," was designed by Samuel Wade and engraved by Henry Roberts; Wade also designed the title-page vignette, "Asculapius and Flora gathering from the Lap of Nature," which was engraved by his frequent collaborator Charles Grignion the Elder. Provenance & Evidence of Readership: Front pastedown with two attractive bookplates of a British independent school and the manor in which it was founded (Canford). The front free endpaper and frontispiece recto are carefully annotated in an early inked hand with summaries of each class of plants described herein, along with appropriate page and plate numbers; the first four plates (only) have neatly and faintly pencilled page numbers with almost every item. Contemporary mottled calf, moderately rubbed and scuffed with spine extremities chipped, gilt-stamped leather spine label chipped with loss of two letters, joints and corners refurbished. Front pastedown with early inked ownership inscription; endpaper and frontispiece with neatly inked contents annotations as above; plate numbers inked or pencilled in margins of the corresponding texts for the first few leaves only. A few plates with light foxing almost entirely confined to margins, five plates with small area of pinholes in vicinity of images; contents otherwise in pleasing condition. => A solid, clean, pleasing copy of an important entry in British botanical studies.

En outre, un avertissement d'une douzaine de pages placé en tête de la cinquième partie explicite les raisons de la publication des volumes ajoutés à ceux de l'édition de 1756.

        An East Prospect of the City of Philadelphia; taken by George Heap from the Jersey Shore, under the Direction of Nicholas Scull Surveyor General of the Province of Pennsylvania

      London: Thomas Jefferys, 1756. Black and white copper-engraving. Very nice condition. Trimmed within platemark on left side. One of the most important colonial American city views. In 1750, Thomas Penn, proprietor of Pennsylvania, wrote to his agent in the province, Richard Peters, expressing a desire for "a perspective of the city [of Philadelphia], either from the Jersey shore or the Windmill Island". Under Peters' direction, several unsuccessful attempts were made to construct a drawing, but no artist in the city proved up to the task until it was taken on by George Heap, who had recently completed a landmark elevation of the Statehouse. Heap's great drawing was sent to Penn by Nicholas Scull, the Surveyor General of Pennsylvania (1748-61), and was engraved and printed in London in 1754 from four large copper-plates. The resulting view measured 82 x 20 inches, and was the "most ambitious effort at picturing an American city made before the Revolution." (Snyder, p. 43.) The great four-sheet view proved unsatisfactory in several ways. The size was unwieldy, and it was expensive to produce. More importantly, it did not satisfy one of Penn's primary criteria: it omitted the Jersey shore from the foreground, and did not clearly show the city as a river port. In 1756, Penn had Thomas Jefferys engrave and publish this corrected version on one oversized sheet. Although reduced to slightly less than half of its former length, the view of the city is virtually identical to that on the four-sheet version. The view extends from present-day South Street to Vine Street, with the existing city shown in great detail. A number of steeples break the skyline, including those of the Statehouse (Independence Hall) at left, and Christ Church at center. Below the view is text entitled "A Description of the Situation Harbour &c. of the City and Port of Philadelphia", with a key that identifies 14 important sites, including the Quaker Meeting House, the Statehouse, Christ Church, the Dutch Calvinist Church, High Street, the Academy, the Presbyterian Church, Chestnut Street, etc. Jefferys has added the Jersey shore, and redesigned the placement and form of the ships in the river. Most importantly, he has added three new features below the map. At lower left is a large-scale map of the city that measures 8 x 18". The source for this map is unknown, but it is important, as it is the first map of Philadelphia to show advances on the Holme plan of 1683. For the first time, individual buildings are shown and named, and the new streets along the Delaware have been added in. Snyder describes it as not only "the first to show points within the city", but the first to show the city in "factual terms", by which he means that non-existent features of the Holme plan have been eliminated, such as the large central square. At lower right is a version of Heap's view of the Statehouse (Independence Hall), only the second appearance of the elevation in print. The building would become a symbol of Philadelphia, and play an instrumental part in the making of the nation. At center is a view of "The Battery," the formidable defensive works on the river just south of the city. ("The Battery' had been shown on the 1754 view in an inset.) This reduced version, which is quite rare in its own right, is the only obtainable version of Scull and Heap's view of Philadelphia. The four-sheet view survives in just four examples, all in institutions, including one at the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. Snyder, City of Independence , pps. 44-47; Wainwright, "Scull and Heap's East Prospect of Philadelphia", Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography, 73, pps. 16, 22-25; Stokes & Haskell, American Historical Prints , p. 18.

        List of Members of the Order of the Golden Fleece; manuscript on paper

      MANUSCRIPT IN FRENCH ON PAPER, Low Countries(?), c. 1756-1767. 306 x 190 mm. 34 folios, watermark in Heawood, complete (collation, i10 ii14 iii10), written in an elegant, well-formed cursive script in dark brown ink in 21 to 25 long lines (justification, pp. 1-43, 270-273 x 158-163 mm. and pp. 45-64, 261-265 x 149-158 mm.), frame-ruled in lead with full-length vertical bounding lines, spiraling pen flourishes fill empty spaces at the bottoms of pages, a rectangle around a name marks an error (p. 46), marginal marks and underlining added in pencil, possibly by one or more later owners. BINDING: Bound in modern quarter red morocco with gilt edges by René Laurent of Brussels (his stamp, ?"R. LAURENT REL.,?" in top outer verso of first flyleaf), marbled paper on the sides, spine with five raised bands, lettered in gilt, upper edge of paper gilt, upper half of fore-edge of original 34 folios colored in mottled red, armorial bookplate in upper corner of front pastedown. TEXT: This elegant and attractive manuscript contains two complementary lists of members of the Order of the Golden Fleece. The first lists members of the Order beginning with those selected at its founding in 1430 and trailing off in the midst of those selected in 1624. The second lists members of the Austrian branch of the Order, beginning with those selected when the Order split into separate Spanish and Austrian branches in 1712 and concluding with those selected in 1765. The most renowned of all chivalric orders, the Order of the Golden Fleece was founded in 1430 by Philip the Good, duke of Burgundy (1396-1467). It was an instituted as a Burgundian alternative to the influential Order of the Garter, founded in 1348 by Edward III, and it was designed to strengthen the allegiance of Philip?'s vassals and ties with foreign states friendly to his realm. The Order of the Golden Fleece originally included twenty-four knights in addition to the Sovereign of the Order, a position held by the Duke of Burgundy and his successors. Following the death of Spain?'s last Habsburg monarch, Charles II, controversies over his heir, Philip, Duke of Anjou, led to the War of Spanish Succession and to the splitting of the Order into Spanish and Austrian branches with different members and different Sovereigns. PROVENANCE: Evidence of watermarks suggests that this manuscript originated in the Netherlands and internal evidence suggests that it was copied between 1765 and 1767, since the second list runs as late as 1765, but was not updated to reflect the selection of new members of the Order in 1767. The formality and care with which this manuscript was copied may indicate a personal investment in the Order on the part of its owner; two Knights of the Order connected to the Low Countries died between the end of 1765 and 1767, Claude Lamoral, Prince of Ligne (d. 1766), and Fernand-Gaston Joseph, Duke of Croy (d. 1767), and it is possible that one of them might have been the manuscript?'s original owner. Belonged to N. O. L. Vernimen; his armorial bookplate. CONDITION: Overall in excellent condition. Full description and photographs available (TM 714).

        SPAIN - BALEARIC ISLANDS / FINE POLISH PRINTING: KRÓTKIE ALE FUNDAMENTALNE OPISANIE BALEARYJSKICH I PYTHYUZYJSKICH WYSP MAJORCA, MINORCA, IVICA I FORMENTERA Z DOWODNIEYSZYCH I NOWSZYCH RELACYI ZEBRANE I DO DRUKOWANIA Z NIEMIECKIEGO.

      - Extremely rare – a lovely gem that represents the first detailed description of the Balearic Islands in Polish, issued in the wake of the Fall of Minorca (1756), by the Jesuit Press of Warsaw, including a fine sheet of maps engraved by Bart?omiej Strachowski. - Octavo (17.5 x 11 cm / 6.9 x 4.3 inches): 8, 72, 1 folding plate of maps (30 x 45.5 cm / 11.8 x 17.9 inches) – Collation Complete, bound in contemporary half calf with marbled boards (Very Good, internally bright and clean, main title with paper in blank space below text carved out and replaced with a patch (an old alteration) in order to supposedly remove stamp, just grazing a few letters but otherwise no loss, map with excellent original hand colour with one small tear with old repairs at hinge just entering image, binding with some splitting at head and tail and minor shelf wear but overall good and firm). This extremely rare and attractive work is the first printed description of the Balearic Islands printed in the Polish language, and features Bart?omiej Strachowski’s magnificent plate of maps of Minorca, which perhaps represents the earliest printed maps of Spain issued in the Polish language. The work was published by the Jesuit Press of Warsaw in order to satisfy the Polish intelligentsia’s curiosity regarding the Balearic islands in the wake of the successful French siege of British Minorca in May-June 1756, one of the most shocking events to occur in Europe during the era. The text features a fascinating and lucidly composed description of the Balearic Islands, including fine summations of its history, geography, politics and natural sciences. As noted in the title, the work was ‘drukowania z niemieckiego,’ meaning "printed from the German," as the Jesuit Press derived the text from Johann Friedrich Seyfart’s Kurze doch gründliche Beschreibung der Balearischen und Pythyusischen Inseln, Majorca, Minorca, Yvica und Formentera (Frankfurt & Leipzig: Adam Jonatan Felsseckers Erben, 1756), itself and extremely rare work (which notably did not feature a map). Seyfart, in turn, borrowed from the very best sources, such as John Armstrong’s The History of the Island of Minorca (London, 1752); George Cleghorn, Observations on the epidemical diseases in Minorca, from 1744 to 1749: to which is prefixed, a short account of the climate, productions, inhabitants, and endemical distempers of that island (London, 1751); and the Abbé de Veyrac’s Etat present de l’Espagne (Paris, 1718). The works starts out with a short but informative section, Opisanie Fortecy s? Filippa na wyspie Minorce jako prawdziwego Porto Mahon, which describes the island’s main city, Maó (Mahón) and the great bastion of Castle St. Philip, which guards its harbour, one of the finest natural ports in the Mediterranean. The remainder of the text features the well-ordered descriptions of the various aspects of the Balearic Islands. Bart?omiej Strachowski’s Plate of Maps of Minorca A highlight of the work is the wonderful plate of maps of Minorca created by the prominent Polish engraver Bart?omiej Strachowski of Wroc?aw (with the imprint ‘Straschowsky sculps., Vratislaviae,’ lower right) entitled, Mappa Wyspy Minorki z planta? Portu y miasta Mahon z naleza?cemi fortyfikacyami port zas?aniaia?cemi mappy de Bellin. The cartography is derived from Jacques-Nicolas Bellin’s Carte des Isles de Maiorque Minorque et Yvice (Paris, 1740), one of the period’s most influential maps of the Balearic Islands. The sheet features three maps with nomenclature in both Polish and German: 1) focusing on the entire island of Minorca (upper centre); 2) a detailed plan of Maó (Mahón) Harbour and Castle St. Philip (lower left and centre); and 3) a general map of the Balearic islands (lower right). Strachowski’s two exquisite Rococo cartouches respectively contain the main title and a key to 28 sites on the Maó (Mahón) Harbour-Fort St. Philip plan. The original hand colouring of the maps is especially attractive, with the lovely palett

        HISTOIRE DES NAVIGATIONS AUX TERRES AUSTRALES

      Paris, 1756. Quarto. Contemporary calf, rebacked, gilt leather labels. Corners slightly worn. Older institutional stamps removed from titlepages, contemporary authorship note on each titlepage. Minor foxing and age toning, some light scattered soiling. About very good. A fundamentally important work on early exploration and discovery in the Pacific. Charles de Brosses was president of the Burgundian Parlement, and a shareholder in the French India Company. His work is the first collection of voyages to deal exclusively with the Pacific, and was intended to spur French commercial activity and colonization in the region. Brosses includes a long essay on the advantages to be gained from discoveries and an actual plan for a voyage and settlement. His ideas influenced Bougainville on the French navigator's Pacific explorations and colonization of the Falklands. Captain Cook took a copy of Brosses' work with him on his first voyage, which is ironic because part of the author's aim was to preempt and challenge British exploration in the Pacific. John Callendar largely copied Brosses' work for his TERRA AUSTRALIS COGNITA (1768). Brosses coined several important terms in this work, including "Australasia" and "Polynesia," though the idea of calling the southeastern Pacific "Magellanica" has not survived. "This is an extremely important and thorough collection of voyages, and one of the outstanding works relating to the early history of Australasia. It contains an account of all voyages, beginning with the second expedition of Vespucci in 1502 and ending in 1747, in which navigators touched upon the supposed southern continent of Magellanica, which is now represented by Australia and some scattered islands in the Antarctic regions. It also contains the voyages of Magellan, Drake, Hawkins, Nodal, Schouten, Tasman, and others. The work...is of special importance because in it Brosses proposes that France should settle Australia with her foundlings, beggars, and criminals" - Hill. The collection contains several significant maps, including Vaugondy's "Carte reduite de l'Australie pour servir a la lecture de l'Histoire des Terres Australes." There are also maps of the Caroline Islands, New Guinea, and the Straits of Magellan, among others. A rare and important work.

      Leonardi Venturini 1756-1757, Lucca - Revised and extended edition. Tall folios. 4 volumes. Volume I., pp. [12], xciv, [2], 546. Volume II., pp. [2], 559, [1]. Volume III., pp. [2], 557, [1]. Volume IV., pp. [2], 520. Double column text in Latin. With 21 full page illustrations (mostly in volume II) depicting maps, floor plans, architecture, clothing and religious objects described in the Hebrew Scriptures. Several illustrations are also included with the text. The title page to volume I is printed in red and black, and displays a vignette. Bound in full period vellum showing rubbing and wear. Spine caps and areas along the board edges are carefully restored. Interior pages show general wear and stress. A few minor marginal tears are neatly sealed. A very faint diagonal stress line (not a full crease) appears in the upper quarter of the leaves; as if, at some period, the text blocks had been bent. Age-toning/browning, scattered foxing and periodic uniform tanning/browning are all present. End leaves are foxed and ragged; an old name and date (1760) is located on the front free fly-leaves. These volumes were released from the Andover-Newton Theological Institute. The title pages are marked with institutional stamps. A stamp is present in the lower margin of 2-3 text pages per volume. The bottom edge of the book block is also stamped. Library bookplates are present on the inside front covers. Agostino Tornielli (1543-1622) was a religious historian who eventually became master of the Society of Barnabites. His "Annales" (first published 1609-10) were written as a prequel to Baronius’s massive (12 volume) ecclesiastical history. Tornielli discusses historical events from the beginning of the world till the time of Jesus. His work was considered valuable for shining light on obscure areas of chronology, geography and topography especially in relation to the books of the Jewish Testament. Louis Dupin states that "it is written in a simple and natural style with great sharpness." [See Dupin, Nouv. bibl. des auteurs eccles. Vol. XVII, p. 58]. This edition of 1756-57 contains an extensive commentary by Agostino Maria Negri. This is a heavy set; extra shipping costs will be necessary.

        CANADA – LOUISBOURG, QUEBEC CITY and HALIFAX: Vorstellung einiger Gegenden und Plaetze in Nord-Amerika unter Französisch und Englische Jurisdiction Ao 1756. [including] Plan du Port et Ville de Louisbourg dans L’Isle Royale [and] Plan de la Ville de Queb.

      - This fine map sheet was produced by the leading German map publisher Homann Heirs of Nuremberg in order to take commercial advantage of the public fascination with the recently declared Seven Year’s War (1756-63), a global contest fought between Britain and her allies against a coalition led by France. New France (Quebec) and Atlantic Canada were the primary theatres of the war in North America. There Britain’s objective was to mount a campaign to conquer French North America, while France generally maintained a defensive role. The plan occupying the upper-left quadrant of the map sheet features the great French fortress of Louisbourg. Completed at astounding expense in 1720, it was built on a fine natural harbor on the east coast of Cape Breton Island, in order to secure the region’s’ ultra-lucrative Cod fishing banks and the entrance to the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The British seized the fort in 1745 during the War of the Austrian Succession, but controversially returned it to France in 1748. It was widely known that Louisbourg would be a prime target for the British in the present war. Indeed, after a siege, the British once again took Louisbourg in 1758. The fort’s main defenses were raised in 1760 on the orders of the British government, so that it would never again fall into French hands. The plan in the upper right features Quebec City, the capital of French North America. Situated atop a great promontory above the St. Lawrence River, where it widens into it a great estuary, the city was heavily fortified and considered by many to be impregnable. A force under the British General James Wolfe sailed up the St. Lawrence in the summer of 1759. At the Battle of the Plains of Abraham on September 13, 1759, Wolfe coaxed the French commander, the Marquis de Montcalm, into leaving the safely of the city’s defenses and meeting him in open battle. The British won and, with it, the fate of New France was sealed. French North America was formally ceded to Britain at the Treaty of Paris in 1763. The lower half of the map sheet features a beautiful plan of the environs of the great British naval base of Halifax, plus an inset entitled ‘Plan of the Town of Halifax in Nova Scotia’ detailing the town. Halifax was founded in 1749 on what is considered to be one the finest and largest natural harbours in the world. It was built in Enlightenment style per a geometrical grid, surrounded by fortifications, and it quickly grew to become the prime British naval base in the Americas. Halifax played a major supporting role in the Seven Years’ War. The house of Homann Heirs of Nuremberg was at this time the leading map publisher in the German-speaking world. It was run by the family of the late Johann Baptist Homann (1664-1724), who had served as the official mapmaker to the Habsburg Emperor. The present map was issued separately, but also appeared in the Homanns’ Städt-Atlas, oder: schauplatz berühmter städte (1762), a fine atlas of city plans from around the world.

        Annales sacri et ex profanis praecipui ab orbe condito ad eumdem Christi passione redemtum /auctore Augustino Torniello…quos nuper Augustinus Maria Negri…additis commentariis, in re historica simul, et chronologica emendare, illustrare, ac perficere studuit.

      Lucca: Leonardi Venturini, 1756-1757. Hardcover. Revised and extended edition. Tall folios. 4 volumes. Volume I., pp. [12], xciv, [2], 546. Volume II., pp. [2], 559, [1]. Volume III., pp. [2], 557, [1]. Volume IV., pp. [2], 520. Double column text in Latin. With 21 full page illustrations (mostly in volume II) depicting maps, floor plans, architecture, clothing and religious objects described in the Hebrew Scriptures. Several illustrations are also included with the text. The title page to volume I is printed in red and black, and displays a vignette. …Bound in full period vellum showing rubbing and wear. Spine caps and areas along the board edges are carefully restored. Interior pages show general wear and stress. A few minor marginal tears are neatly sealed. A very faint diagonal stress line (not a full crease) appears in the upper quarter of the leaves; as if, at some period, the text blocks had been bent. Age-toning/browning, scattered foxing and periodic uniform tanning/browning are all present. End leaves are foxed and ragged; an old name and date (1760) is located on the front free fly-leaves. These volumes were released from the Andover-Newton Theological Institute. The title pages are marked with institutional stamps. A stamp is present in the lower margin of 2-3 text pages per volume. The bottom edge of the book block is also stamped. Library bookplates are present on the inside front covers. Agostino Tornielli (1543-1622) was a religious historian who eventually became master of the Society of Barnabites. His ?"Annales?" (first published 1609-10) were written as a prequel to Baronius?'s massive (12 volume) ecclesiastical history. Tornielli discusses historical events from the beginning of the world till the time of Jesus. His work was considered valuable for shining light on obscure areas of chronology, geography and topography especially in relation to the books of the Jewish Testament. Louis Dupin states that ?"it is written in a simple and natural style with great sharpness.?" [See Dupin, Nouv. bibl. des auteurs eccles. Vol. XVII, p. 58]. This edition of 1756-57 contains an extensive commentary by Agostino Maria Negri. This is a heavy set; extra shipping costs will be necessary.

        Tes tou Omerou Iliados - Odysseias. Band 2 (von 4) [Text Griechisch].

      Glasgow: Excudebant Robertus and Andreas Foulis 1756. 2 Blatt, 336 Seiten. Leder der Zeit mit goldgeprägtem Rücken, Folio. (hinterer Deckel lose, Lederbezug des Vorderdeckels ENTFERNT, Exlibris, nur sehr wenig gebräunt resp. braunfleckig, insgesamt schöner Druck auf weissem Papier) Druck auf breitrandigem Papier. Einzelband der opulenten Ausgabe in der Originalsprache, eine der schönsten Homer-Ausgaben, die je gedruckt wurden. Der vorliegende zweite Band enthält den zweiten, abschließenden Teil der Ilias. Die Type für diesen Druck wurde speziell geschnitten und brach mit der Tradition, Garamond einfach nur zu imitieren. Jeder Bogen der Ausgabe wurde gleich mehrfach Korrektur gelesen, so dass ein Höchstmass an Exaktheit erreicht wurde. Die Druckerei der Brüder Foulis im Glasgow der Aufklärung war berühmt für die textliche und aesthetische Qualität ihrer Drucke, die Homerausgabe soll der schönste Druck dieser Presse sein. Das Wappen-ExLibris aus dem 18. Jahrhundert auf der Rückseite der Titelei \"Gulielmus Burrell Arm. de Beckenham in Com. Cantii\" wurde für Sir William Burrell (1732-1796) gestochen. Leider wurde bei unserem Exemplar der Lederbezug des Vorderdeckels entfernt, glücklicherweise unter Schonung der Goldprägung auf den Kanten, so daß uns der Schaden restaurierbar erscheint. - Dibdin II, 58 - Gaskell 106 und 319 - Lowder 1097.

        Kleine Chirurgie oder Hand-Buch der Wund-Arzenei in welcher kurzer doch deutlicher Unterricht und Begriff dieser Wissenschaft gegeben, auch die nöthigste Werkzeuge in Kupfer vorgestellt werde.

      - Andere viel verbesserte Ausgabe. Mit allergnädigste Freyheiten. Nürnberg, In der Raspischen Bhdlg., 1756, 8°, Portrait, (16), 461 pp., 21 pp. Auslegung der Kupfertafeln; 2 pp. Errata, 8 gefalt. Kupfertaf., Pappband der Zt.; feines Expl. "Die Bedeutung des in deutscher Sprache verfaßten Lehrbuches der Chirurgie war Heister voll bewußt. Er brachte noch gegen Ende seines Lebens eine "Kleine Chirurgie oder Handbuch der Wundarzney" heraus, in deren Vorrede vom 18. August 1755 er ausführt, daß seine "große Chirurgie" endlich so groß und so stark geworden, daß man es deswegen nicht mehr so füglich zu den chirurgischen Kollegien, wo man es sonsten gebraucht hätte, sowohl auf Universitäten, als auch zu Berlin, Hannover, Braunschweig, Bremen, und andern dergleichen Orten, von den Medicina Studiosis und den jungen Wundärzten chirurgische Unterweisungen gegeben werden, gebrauchen konnte."Der andere Grund ist die Herstellung eines "guten Auszug(s) oder Kompendium(s) von den nothwendigsten, was angehende junge Liebhaber der Wundarzney zum Grunde oder Anfange vor anderen zu wissen und zu lernen nöthig haben." Er unterzog sich dieser Aufgabe, "ohngeachtet ich beständig mit vielen Amtsgeschäfften überhäuft bin." um "aus dem großen Werke vom Jahre 1747 dieses kleinen Werkgen, das ich auch deswegen meine kleine Chirurgie oder Wundarzney nenne, zu bemeldetem Gebrauche" zu verfertigen. - Um die Korrekturen an seinen einmalig schönen und eindrucksvollen Abbildungen selbst vornehmen zu können, lernt Heister in Altdorf auch das Kupferstechen. Zugleich setzt er hier die Komplettierung seines von der Jugendzeit an gesammelten "Herbarium vivum", welches später in Helmstedt auf 100 Foliobände anwächst, fort." Jürgen Probst, L.

        A. Cornelius Celsus Of Medicine

      1756 - (CELSUS). A. Cornelius Celsus Of Medicine. London: Printed for D. Wilson and T. Durham, 1756. Octavo, full contemporary calf gilt rebacked with original spine laid down, raised bands, original red morocco spine label. $8000.Scarce first edition in English, Greive's "fine and scholarly" translation (DNB) of "the greatest medical treatise from ancient Rome."Roman literature, otherwise so barren of good medical authorities, can boast of possessing in Celsus one who, for elegance, terseness, learning, good sense and practical information, stands unrivaled" (Peck, 308). Celsus' De Medicina "is the oldest medical document after the Hippocratic writings. Written about AD 30, it remains the greatest medical treatise from ancient Rome, and the first Western history of medicine;" its editio princeps, printed in Florence in 1478, "was one of the first medical books to be printed" (Garrison & Morton 20). Celsus' work is notable for containing important, early Western accounts of dentistry (including treatments of toothaches and fractured jaws) and surgery (including the first accounts of the use of ligature and early descriptions of plastic surgery). A physician and lecturer in chemistry, Grieve "omitted no pains in examining the various editions of his original, nor in consulting his best annotators" in preparing this first edition in English: "Whoever has sufficient leisure and disposition for an attentive perusal of this work must perceive it has cost the Translator much time, care, and study… Dr. Grieve has shown himself a gentleman of literature and application" (Brueggemann, 641). Extra-illustrated with engraved plate depicting the Ambe of Hippocrates preceding leaf A2. Garrison & Morton 6375. Blake, 82. Lowndes, 399. Bookplate. Engraved title page from a 1687 edition of De Medicina published in Amsterdam by Joannem Wolters affixed to front pastedown. With portion of a line engraving (measuring 3 by 6 inches) regarding 17th-century cancer patients affixed to rear pastedown. The Wellcome Library holds another, larger fragment of the same broadside, and believes it to be an advertisement for "the services of an English travelling healer, possibly Sir William Read (d. 1715)… Read was oculist to Queen Anne, traveled around England treating people for cataract, cancer and other diseases, flaunted his services to charity and received a knighthood for his charitable services" (Wellcome Library).Scattered light foxing. Title page with excised strip renewed, including the word "OF" from the title. Binding expertly restored. A most desirable copy in contemporary binding. Scarce.
