        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.

        Historisch kritisches Verzeichniss alter und neuer Schriftsteller von dem Erdboeben.

      Schneeberg, Carl Wilhelm Fulden. 1756. 8vo., 112pp., with a whole-page figure on p.105, bound in 19th century German half calf over mottled boards, spine gilt, labelled and lettered. A fine copy. First edition. The world's first bio-bibliography of earthquakes and seismology. Christoph Gottlob Grundig (born September 5, 1707; died August 9, 1780) was a German Protestant theologian, mineralogist and publicist. His interest in mineralogy had been nurtured when he was at school in Freiberg under Bergrat Johann Friedrich Henckel. From 1737 he held the post of evangelical pastor in Hermann village where he married and raised a family. From 1747 he edited a monthly magazine on the natural history and art history of Upper Saxony. Following his move to become senior pastor at Schneeberg in 1749, and following the dramatic Lisbon earthquake of 1755, Grundig gained particular credit for this, the world's first seismological bibliography. When he died in August 1780 his estate included a large library and a comprehensive collection of some 3300 specimens of minerals.

      1756 - 2 volumes de I. (2), XIV, Paris, Durant, 1756, in-4, 2 volumes de I. (2), XIV, 463 pages et 6 cartes repliées, et de II. (2), 513, 1 page et 1 carte repliée, demi-veau, dos à 5 nerfs richement orné et portant une pièce de titre et de tomaison en maroquin noir et sable (reliure pastiche), PREMIERE EDITION. La dénomination des "terres australes" ne désigne pas, au XVIIIe siècle, uniquement les glacials continents de l'Arctique et de l'Antarctique, elle renvoie à une région plus vaste et plus indéterminée de l'hémisphère sud allant du Cap de Bonne-Espérance jusqu'au Détroit de Magellan en passant par l'Océan Indien et le Pacifique Sud, trois régions distinctes que l'auteur nomme respectivement : l'Australasie, la Polynésie et la Magellanie (cette dernière appellation reposant sur la croyance en l'existence d'un continent situé au delà de la pointe de l'Amérique du Sud). Charles de Brosses, homme politique, voyageur et historien, sur des incitations de son ami Buffon, compile avec cet ouvrage l'histoire de tous les voyages entrepris dans les mers du sud, depuis Amerigo Vespucci en 1501, jusqu'à Le Hen-Bignon en 1747. Ainsi ce compendium narre bien plus que les réalités exotiques de mondes lointains et de peuples inconnus, il retrace l'histoire d'un imaginaire suscité par des contrées rêvées, ainsi que l'évolution des savoirs scientifiques et géographiques, et des techniques de navigation. Enfin, il constitue un vibrant appel à "la découverte" de l’ailleurs, plus négativement dit, à la colonisation. 7 grandes cartes dessinées par le géographe du roi, Robert de Vaugondy, témoignent de la représentation géographique du monde au milieu du XVIIIe siècle, notamment la première gravure qui montre l'ensemble de l'hémisphère sud avec un centrage sur l'Australie. On trouve aussi des cartes particulières de la "Polynésie Australe", du détroit de Magellan et des îles Malouines, de l'Australie, de "La Terre des Papous", c'est à dire de la Nouvelle-Guinée, et les Iles Carolines. Malgré une restauration de l'extérieur des pages de titre sans atteinte au texte, et quelques rares piqûres, bel exemplaire propre et grand de marges [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        North Sea antique chart - Mount and Page.

      "A Chart of Part of the North Sea from the South Foreland to Burnham Flatts, and from Callis Schelling Isle"'Copper engraving from "The English Pilot Describing The Sea-Coasts, Capes, Head-Lands, Soundings, Sands, Shoals, Rocks and Dangers, The Bays, Roads, Harbours, Rivers and Ports in the Whole Northern Navigation"' published by W. and J. Mount, T. Page and Sons, London 1756. Coloured by a later hand. Size: 44 x 54 cm. The English Pilot was an important British sea-atlas published from 1671 to 1803. Initially published by John Seller, publication of the atlas changed hands periodically, with other publishers including Charles Price, John Thornton, and the Mount & Page firm. The charts from the English Pilot were intended as working charts so there was an effort to make them accurate, although predictably, many seamen complained that the charts were consistently out of date and that changes were slow to appear, a charge leveled at virtually every British, French and American Chart maker, including the respective governments of these nations. Ironically, it was in no small part due to the proprietary nature of the information included in the maps and sailing directions that there was a tendency for commercial pilots to pass the information from mariner to chart-maker more slowly than might otherwise have been the case, although the chart makers on the Thames and otherwise were undoubtedly reluctant to immediately make each and every necessary correction, for fear of undermining the economic viability of their businesses.

Dans la première pièce (Physicalische Beobachtungen.) de ce recueil présenté ici, Ledermüller répond avec provocation à Buffon qui dans son ouvrage Histoire Naturelle Générale, critiquait le microscope simple de Leeuwenhoek, et prônait les microscopes composés qui offraient selon lui des observations plus précises et plus exactes. Ledermüller compare dans cet ouvrage deux microscopes : le microscope composé réalisé par Cuff utilisé par Buffon (figuré en pl. XIV), et le microscope simple de type Wilson, fabriqué également par Cuff (figuré en pl. XVI). Ledermüller illustre dans cet ouvrage la supériorité du Microscope de type Wilson, et confirme la justesse des observations de Leeuwenhoek au sujet des animalcules dans le sperme. La planche XV de cet ouvrage nous offre l'image de Monsieur Georges de Buffon au travail, en pleine observation, à la recherche des animalcules du sperme dans une chienne disséquée. Les deux dernières planches de la seconde pièce reliée ici ("Versuch zu einer gründlichen Vertheidigung.") figurent le microscope anatomique que Ledermüller avait mis au point d'après la "fameuse machine-anatomique microscopique de l'invention de l'immortel Lieberkühn de Berlin" (Ledermüller, Les amusements microscopiques, Nuremberg, 1768), "One of the most remarkable of the many 18th-century simple microscopes " (Moe, The Story of the Microscope, Rhodos, 2004, p. 82). Ledermüller fabriqua le sien dans une très fine planche de bois de tilleul. Cet instrument permettait entre autre une observation précise et "in vivo" de la circulation du sang. - Première pièce : "Physicalische Beobachtungen derer Saamenthiergens durch die allerbesten Vergrösserungs-Gläser und bequemlichsten Microscope betrachtet und mit einer unparthenischen Untersuchung und Gegeneinanderhaltung derer Buffonischen und Leuwenhoeckischen Experimenten in einem Sendschreiben. Mit denen hierzu gehörigen Figuren und Kupfern einem Liebhaber der Natur -Kunde und Warheit mitgetheilet." - Seconde pièce : "Versuch zu einer gründlichen Vertheidigung derer Saamenthiergen nebst einer kurzen Beschreibung derer Leeuwenhoeckischen Mikroscopien und einem Entwurf zu einer vollständigern Geschichte des Sonnenmikroskops, als der besten Rechtfertigung derer Leeuwenhoeckischen Beobachtungen". Il manque les deux feuillets d'avant-propos, signés )( 1 et 2. Wellcome III, p. 471-472. Nissen (ZBI) n° 2411 et 2412. Étiquette ex-libris du professeur Delacamp. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Essai sur l'histoire naturelle des Corallines, et d'autres productions marines du même genre qu'on trouve communément sur les côtes de la Grande-Bretagne et d'Irlande ; auquel on joint une description d'un grand polype de mer

      1756 - XVI, 125, (3), 39 planches La Haye, Pierre de Hondt, 1756, in-4, XVI, 125, (3), 39 planches dont 5 dépliantes, demi-basane de l'époque, Première édition française, l'édition anglaise avait paru 1 an plus tôt en 1755. Naturaliste irlandais éclairé, John Ellis est connu pour avoir été en correspondance avec Linné à propos de la possibilité qu'un végétal puisse se transformer un animal. Le grand physicien allemand lui dédia en 1763 le genre "Ellisia" de la famille des "Hydrophyllaceae". Ellis livre ici une étude inédite sur les coraux, "un système d'une nouvelle classe d'êtres jusqu'à présent inconnus." En outre, afin de proposer des observations fiables et innovantes, il mit à profit la science microscopique de son temps en utilisant systématiquement pour son étude le microscope aquatique inventé par John Cuff quelques dix années plus tôt. Simple et commode d'utilisation, ce microscope dispose d'un bras articulé qui en facilite l'utilisation. 39 planches hors texte gravés sur cuivre montrent les différentes sortes de coraux décrits. La dernière planche présente le microscope Cuff dont Ellis donne une description détaillée aux pages 124-125. Bon exemplaire, grand de marges d'un des premiers textes sur la botanique aquatique et sur son étude microscopique [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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 English. - Stafleu and Cowan, Taxonomic Literature 2769; Nissen, Die botanische Buchillustration 881; Pritzel, Thesaurus Literaturae Botanicae 4063; etc. - Hill was a critic of the Linnaean binomial nomenclature as published in the Species Plantarumin in 1753. 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. The drawings on plates I - VII numbered by hand. Otherwise no entries, nearly no browning (only last plates little browned), no spotting. Binding strong and tight.

Exemplaire en grand papier réimposé au format in-quarto. Deuxième édition de la Relation du royaume des Féliciens, peuple qui habite dans les Terres Australes, dans laquelle il est traité de leur origine, de leur religion, de leur gouvernement, de leurs m?urs et de leurs coutumes - qui se trouve dans le quatrième volume. La première édition est de 1727. Dans cette utopie, l'auteur prétend n'être que le copiste d'un manuscrit trouvé. Le royaume de Félicie n'a rien d'absolu, le luxe y a une fonction salutaire, le système économique est caractérisé par la liberté du travail et le libre-échange. La population jouit de la liberté la plus totale ; les Féliciens sont religieux, doux, sages et tolérants ; ils forment une société hiérarchisée, militaire, marchande, luxueuse et voluptueuse, où tout va bien puisque les loix gouvernent et que la sagesse règne. Cette édition des oeuvres du marquis de Lassay a été imprimée par les soins de l'abbé G.-L. Calabre Pérau. Elle renferme des lettres, anecdotes, pensées sur la religion et la politique dans lequelles on a souvent reconnu un précurseur de Rousseau et des philosophes. Bel exemplaire à grandes marges. Versins, 513 ; Hartig et Soboul, p. 42.

      [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.

        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.

        Hieracium echioides capitulis Cardui benedicti C.B. Pin.

      London: Georg Ehret, 1756 - EHRET, Georg Dionysius (1707-1770). Hieracium echioides capitulis Cardui benedicti C.B. Pin. London: Georg Ehret, 1756 Single sheet (19 x 13 4/8 inches). AN EXCEPTIONALLY FINE watercolour drawing of Hawkweed Ox-tongue (Picris hieracioides) and a Fig Sphinx Hawk Moth (Pachylia ficus), watercolour and body colour over graphite, heightened with gum arabic on vellum. Inscribed in pen and black ink with title beneath the image and signed "E. D. Ehret Prinxit 1756" lower right hand corner (lefthand edge with pale staining, not affecting the image). A superb watercolour of Hawkweed Ox-tongue, a yellow daisy-like wild-flower, a stiff annual or biennial native to Europe and Asia, and invasive in Africa, Australia and North America. The Fig Sphinx Hawk moth is found from the northern tip of South America in Uruguay through Central America to the southern tip of the United States straying into Arizona and Texas Illustrated as plate 47 in Iolo Williams' "Early English Watercolours", and mentioned on page 26: "As befitted one who benefited by the advice of Linnaeus himself and who became the brother-in-law of Philip Miller, Ehret was not primarily a decorative artist like van Huysum, but a scientific draughtsman. Yet he aimed at making a drawing handsome as well as accurate - he disposed his plant to advantage and often added decoration, in the way of a moth or butterfly, to the picture. One Ehret drawing, dated 1756, shows a branched sprig of the [Hawkweed] Ox-tongue, Picris hieraciodes, and an American species of Hawk-moth, Pachylia ficus, to one side. It is done on vellum and the artist has used a certain amount of body-colour - especially in creating an effect of grey bloom on the foliage which is very characteristic of him. The colours of the plant are perhaps a trifle hard, but the quality of the moth's wings is most beautifully and softly rendered". Ehret's work stands as a preeminent accomplishment of European botanical art, and the reasons for this acclaim are immediately evident in the virtuoso draftsmanship and fine, nuanced coloring of these works. Born in Heidelburg to a market gardener, Ehret began his working life as a gardener's apprentice, eventually becoming a chief gardener for the Elector of Heidelburg and the Margrave of Baden, whoseprize tulips and hyacinths he painted. Ehret soon moved on to a number of cities across Europe, collecting eminent friends and important patrons as he traveled. His list of benefactors included the most brilliant and celebrated natural history enthusiasts of his day, among whom was Dr. Christopher Trew, a wealthy Nuremberg physician who became his lifelong patron, friend and collaborator. From 1750 until Ehret's death in 1770, he and Trew collaborated on the publication of the important illustrated volumes Plantae Selectae and Hortus Nitidissimus, both of which added to the rising acclaim for the artist's considerable talents as a botanical painter. Also among Ehret's admirers were the Parisian naturalist Bernard de Jussieu and the great Swedish naturalist Linnaeus, and Ehret's illustrations are some of the first works to reflect the Linnaean system of classification. Ehret was one of the first artists to focus on exotic species from across the Atlantic, and his draftsmanship was so fine that his friend and colleague, the great artist/naturalist Mark Catesby, used at least three of the German painter's botanical illustrations for his seminal NaturalHistory of Carolina, Florida, and the Bahama Islands. For the engraving of the Canada Lily, Catesby copied an earlier watercolor by Ehret of the Martagon, nearly identical to the example in this set. Today, Ehret's images are widely considered the most desirable to emerge from that monumental publication, and he collaborated with Catesby in other ways, too, in the compilation of the Natural History, offering advice or adding significant elements to Catesby's initial compositions. Catesby was influenced greatly by Ehret's accomplished style, espec [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        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).
