        Carte Reduite des Isles Britanniques - Dressee aux Depost des Cartes, Plans, et Journaux de la Marine.

      Paris, Bellin, 1757.. Original, hand-coloured engraving. The engraving (the plate) itself 55.5 cm x 90 cm. Outer Margins 67 cm wide x 97 cm high. Original Map with a 4 cm tear (repaired). Only very mild signs of foxing. A very beautiful and large map of the British Isles.. Jacques Nicolas Bellin (1703 - 21 March 1772) was a French hydrographer, geographer, and member of the French intellectual group called the philosophes. Bellin was born in Paris. He was hydrographer of France's hydrographic office, member of the Academie de Marine and of the Royal Society of London. Over a 50-year career, he produced a large number of maps of particular interest to the Ministere de la Marine. His maps of Canada and of French territories in North America (New France, Acadia, Louisiana) are particularly valuable. He died at Versailles. In 1721, at age 18, he was appointed hydrographer (chief cartographer) to the French Navy. In August 1741, he became the first Ingenieur de la Marine of the Depot des cartes et plans de la Marine (the French Hydrographical Office) and was named Official Hydrographer of the French King. During his reign the Depot came out with prodigious amount of charts and maps among which was a large folio format sea-charts of France, the Neptune Francois. He also produced a number of sea-atlases of the world, e.g., the Atlas Maritime and the Hydrographie Francaise. These gained fame, distinction and respect all over Europe and were republished throughout the 18th and even in the succeeding century. Bellin also came out with smaller format maps such as the 1764 Petit Atlas Maritime (5 vols.) containing 580 finely detailed charts. Bellin set a very high standard of workmanship and accuracy thus gaining for France a leading role in European cartography and geography. Many of his maps were copied by other mapmakers of Europe.He was one of the Encyclopedistes, a group of 18th century intellectuals in France who compiled the 35-volume Encyclopedie which was edited by Denis Diderot and Jean le Rond d'Alembert. Bellin contributed 994 articles. The Encyclopedistes, were part of the group called philosophes among whose members were the great minds of the Age of Enlightenment, e.g., Montesquieu, Voltaire, Rousseau, Baron d'Holbach. Bellin contributed a number of maps to 15-vol. Histoire Generale des Voyages of Antoine Francois Prevost or simply known l'Abbe Prevost. One of these maps led to a geographical blunder whose impact reverberates to this day. This was the map of the Philippines which Bellin copied from a world-famous chart produced in 1734 by the Spanish missionary to the Philippines, Fr. Pedro Murillo Velarde. Unlike many other European mapmakers of the time who outright appropriated Murillo's map, Bellin had the intellectual integrity to fully credit Murillo as his source, an open acknowledgement shown in the title cartouche of Bellin's map which came out the same year as the original work by Murillo. Shown in Bellin's map was an island named "Limasava", a word invented in 1667 by Spanish friar, Fr. Francisco Combes, S.J., to refer to the way station of the Armada de Molucca under the command of the Portuguese captain-general Fernao de Magalhaes during its navigation in Philippine waters. Combes, who had not read a single eyewitness account of the Magellan expedition relied on two sources, the hopelessly garbled Italian translation of the Antonio Pigafetta account by Giovanni Battista Ramusio and the secondhand account by Antonio de Herrera y Tordesillas. Ramusio wrote the fleet anchored in March-April 1521 in Butuan in Mindanao, and from there sailed for Cebu with a brief stopover at "Messana". In the authentic Pigafetta account, the port was an isle named Mazzaua while the stopover isle was named Gatighan. Antonio de Herrera y Tordesillas gave a faithful narration of the Mazzaua anchorage. Combes disregarded de Herrera's version and adopted Ramusio's. He wrote that Magellan's fleet had anchored at Butuan and from their sailed for Cebu making a stop at a way station he named Limasaua. Five years earlier than Combes, Fr. Francisco Colin wrote the Armada moored at Butuan from March-April 1521 where Magellan and his men together with the natives celebrated an Easter Sunday mass on 31 March 1521. From Butuan the fleet sailed for Cebu making a brief stop at a way station he called "Dimasaua", an invented word meaning "this is not the Mazagua of Antonio de Herrera where supposedly an Easter Sunday mass was held which I already said happened in Butuan." This episode was projected in the 1734 map made by Murillo who used Combes name, "Limassava" not "Dimasaua" which map Bellin copied. In 1789, Augustinian Carlo Amoretti, Italian Encyclopedist and librarian of Biblioteca Ambrosiana in Milan, discovered the authentic Italian manuscript of Antonio Pigafetta among the scattered holdings of the library. Here it came out that the port of March-April 1521 was not Butuan but Mazaua. Amoretti, who himself had not read any of five eyewitness reports of the incident including two French versions of Pigafetta's account, asserted in a footnote that Mazaua was probably the isle named Limasava in Bellin's map, thus interchanging the real port of Mazaua with the way station Gatighan. Largely with the appearance of the eyewitness account of Gines de Mafra, the only seaman in Magellan's fleet to return to Mazaua, whose testimony reveals a concrete, measurable description of Mazaua, the skein starting from the garbled version of Pigafetta by Ramusio to the mishandling by Combes to Bellin and finally to Amoretti has been unraveled: Pigafetta's Gatighan is Bellin's Limasava.

        Eden: or, a Compleat body of gardening, containing plain and familiar directions for raising the several useful products of a garden . compiled and digested from the papers of the late celebrated Mr. Hale, by the authors of the compleat body of husbandry. And comprehending the art of constructing a garden for use and pleasure; the best methods of keeping it in order: and the most perfect accounts of its several products

      printed for T. Osborne, T. Trye, S. Crowder & Co., and H. Woodgate, London 1757 - (16 5/8 x 10 inches). Engraved emblematic frontispiece, 60 engraved plates, all finely hand-coloured by a contemporary hand, most plates unsigned but including work by C. Edwards & Darly, J.Hill, Boyce, Philips, B. Cole, Ed. Alton and others, after Edwards, J. Hill, Van Huysum and others. Early 19th century full dark green morocco, covers elaborately bordered in gilt, spine with raised bands in seven compartments, lettered in the second, the others with a repeat overall decoration in gilt, contemporary marbled endpapers, marbled edges (expert restoration at joints) An exceptional example of the first edition of this important 18th-century gardening book: with very fine contemporary hand-colouring. The work was issued in 60 weekly parts between August 1756 and October 1757, and was available with plates uncoloured or coloured. The present example is truly exceptional: it is among the best contemporary coloured examples that we have seen. The plates are coloured by an assured and highly-talented hand, using a strong palate, and show oxidisation of the pigments which is a reliable indicator of early colouring. The work, intended as a companion to the Compleat Body of Husbandry (London, 1756), was designed along very unusual lines for the period: each weekly part includes information on what should be done in the garden during the following week together with descriptions of the plants that should be at their peak at that time. In the introduction, the author's intentions are made plain: "We shall treat Gardens from their Origin, Design, and first Construction, to raising them to Perfection, and keeping them in that condition; and we shall consider, in our Course, their Products, whether of Use, Curiosity, or Beauty. These we shall describe in their several Seasons, suiting our Publications to the Time of their Appearance." Henrey writes of Sir John Hill that "Not only was . [he] industrious and energetic, but his writings show him to have been a man of real ability and genius" (vol. II, p. 91). Unfortunately, he was also conceited, eccentric and fond of self-advertisement: traits not conducive to winning friends, and various false starts in his search for wealth and recognition led him to pursue a number of careers: apothecary, practical botanist, actor, gardener (he apparently assisted in the laying out of a botanic garden in Kew, and was gardener at Kensington Palace) and, most productively of all, miscellaneous writer (the list of his works in the D.N.B. runs to five and a half columns). Bradley III, 109; Great Flower Books (1990) p.100; Henrey III 776; Hunt 559; Nissen BBI 880; Tongiorgi Tomasi An Oak Spring Flora 53 (second edition). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Corners a bit bumped. Some nicks to bottom edges. (2),28 pp. and 46 fine engraved plates, many double-page and folded, some triple-page and plate III in 4- plate size (partly bound at end). Title-page a bit browned, a fes minor scattered brownspots.. Scarce first edition of this unsurpassed investigation of the rediscovered ruins of Baalbek ("City of the Sun", Lebanon/Syria) and the premier city in Roman Syria. The work was published at the same time in both English and French, here the French version is offered."In 1750-1751 Wood travelled around the Levant with two wealthy young Oxford scholars James Dawkins and John Bouverie (who died of a fever early in their expedition) and an Italian draftsman Giovanni Battista Borra. Their primary goal was to explore the Troad and locate the key sites mentioned by Homer. Moving south into Syria, they then took careful measurements and drawings of the ancient Roman ruins of Palmyra and Baalbek. The results of these were published in 1753 and 1757 in both English and French editions and were among the first systematic publications of ancient buildings. Both works were of great influence on neoclassical architecture in Britain, Continental Europe and America. From 1753 to 1756, Wood was the tutor and travelling-companion (or Bear-leader as such men were known at the time) of the young Duke of Bridgewater, the richest peer in England, in making the Grand Tour."(Wikipedia)

        Elementa physiologicae corporis humani.

      Marc-Michael Bousquet, Lausanne 1757 - First Comprehensive Textbook of Physiology Haller, Albrecht (1708-77). Elementa physiologiae corporis humani. 4to. Engraved portrait by P. F. Tardieu after E. J. Handmann & 6 plates. Lausanne: Bousquet. . . , 1757-63 & Berne: Sumpt. Soc. Typogr., 1764-66. 8 vols. 240 x 187 mm. Calf, gilt spines, c. 1757-66 (some variation in mottling patterns, spine tools as might be expected). Bindings worn, rubbed, some joints cracked. Good set, internally very good. First Edition. Garrison-Morton 588. The first comprehensive treatise of physiology, "a vast and well-systematized storehouse of physiological knowledge, replete with citation and an incredible number of accurate references to literature" (Fulton / Wilson 81). Also includes important anatomical descriptions. Haller's most original physiological contribuitons were the establishment of both concepts of sensibility and irritability, recognition of the cardiac automatism and confirmation of an airless pleural space. In addition, Haller rejected the concept of an active systole occuring in the cerebral membranes, and the previous attempts to localize the seat of the soul. Moreover, he clarified the relationships between the cerebellum and the motion of the heart as well as other vegetative functionsŸ (Rothschuh 130, also 125ff.). Lundsgaard-Fischer 284.

      London.: D. Henry and R. Cave at St. John's Gate.. Volume XXVII.. 1757.. Bound volume in leather binding (spine perished; replaced with fabric, covers badly worn, the front cover and spine separated from the text block.); 8.75 x 5.25 inches; title page and preface; 608 pp including Supplement, followed by unpaginated Index (listing Essays, Poetry, Names, etc. included in the 12 issues). Ex-library with bookplate on inside front cover, perforated stamp on title page and stamped number with withdrawn stamp in lower margin of preface page. Pages 423 thru 436 are loose in binding. Pages 177 thru 180 are MISSING. In sum: a book the binding of which has not aged well; however, the contents are in remarkably clean shape with some offsetting. There are a few plates missing, and the "Map of that part of America, which was the seat of war in the years 1755 and 1756." A chief feature of the volume is the numerous engraved copperplate maps. They are listed, with sheet size, as follows: 1) A Physical Planisphere wherein are represented all the known Lands and Seas wth. the Great Chains of Mountains wch. traverse the Globe from the North Pole. Adapted to Monsr: Buache's Memoire Read at the R. Academy of Sciences (14 x 12.25 inches); very clean; short marginal tears; 2) The Seat of WAR in the Circle of Westphalia (8.25 x 10.5 inches with very light off-set on one fold); 3) "A Draught of the Road and Harbour of Brest with the Adjacent Coast" (8.25 x 18 inches); 3) "Map of the Several Countries thro' which the Russians are to Pass in their March to Prussia" (8.25 x 10.25) Baltic Countries i.e. Pomerania, Prussia, Courland, Livonia etc. 4) Map of the Mouths of the Ganges in the Bay of Bengal shewing the English Settlements lately Destroy'd by the Nabob of that Province (8.25 x 5 inches); 5) A map of the Coast of France from Rochelle & Rochfort with the Island of Ree Oleron & Aix (8.25 x 5.5); 6) Upper Saxony Comprehending that Part of Germany which is the Present Seat of War (8.25 x 11 inches); 7) A New Map of England and Wales by Thos. Jeffreys Geographer to his royal Highness the Prince of Wales (17 x 15 inches; two very short tears to margin, otherwise excellent); A Map of the Island of Corsica (8 x 4 inches, considerable offsetting from facing page). The volume also includes a folding plate of the Temple of the Eight Winds; three plates of shells; one plate of ancient coins; a folding plate of Two Imperfect Roman Alters discovered near Carlisle, and two other plates of arcane interest. Unusual is the page denoting "A Chinese Air," a transcription of what is thought to have been "the earliest Chinese music performance in the West" (See Early Music, September 29, 2010). Overall, a volume of considerable interest in need of rebinding; however, contents in remarkably good condition. .

Lada-Mocarski 14: "Although Father Venegas' own work-the first two volumes-deals entirely with Lower California, there is much valuable information in the third volume, by Father A.M. Burriel on the Russians' and others' discoveries in the North Pacific, and on the maps of that region prepared by various geographers of the time. There is, furthermore, a long and reasoned discussion of the so-call report of Admiral de Fonte, which is rejected as spurious. There is also a vitriolic attack on Buache and Delisle for using this report in their communications to the French royal Academy of Sciences, and in the construction of their maps of the North Pacific, including Alaska."

Wagner, Cartography of the Northwest Coast 585-588 (see also note in 483) & pp. 144-147. Wagner, Spanish Southwest 132: "At this time there was a decree in effect that no one should publish anything relating to America without the previous consent of the Council of the Indies, and inasmuch as this book contains more on Lower California than almost any other book that had been published in one hundred and fifty years, it seem strange that the Council should have permitted the publication....I have seen it asserted that the object of publishing this book was to counteract some assertions made in Anson's Voyage Round the World, originally printed in London in 1748, in which some aspersions were cast on the Jesuits, especially about their handling of the natives in the missions of California.... Throughout the work great attention is paid to the geography of the country, Father Burriel having obtained a large number of maps from which to study this.... Although the author was a Jesuit, the work is written in a secular spirit, much different from the point of view usually taken by writers of other religious orders." Wheat, Mapping the Transmississippi West 138 & I, p. 85 (citing only Map 1 above, but mentioning the others): "A well drawn map, showing the mission and Indian towns of Pimeria Alta." Zamorano 80 #78 (Henry R. Wagner): "Volume III contains extracts from Lopez de Gomara and Torquemada relating to the early explorations on the northwest coast and several articles written by Father Burriel himself. Of these, the most interesting is his account of the construction of the map of California, and of the general map of North America." Alfred W. Newman (California 49: Forty-Nine Maps of California from the Sixteenth Century to the Present 15) lists Robert de Vaugondy's 1772 Carte de la Californie (appeared in Diderot's Encyclopedie), which gives a pictorial summary of the cartographic history of California in five maps on one sheet. Newman states that map 5 is based upon a Spanish map in Venegas' book, the Mapa de la California su Golfo: "The map shows the results of explorations carried out by the Jesuits in the years since Kino's explorations. The text to the map singles out the contribution of Father Ferdinand Consag (called Gonsaque on the map) who explored the upper end of the Gulf of California and confirmed Father Kino's conclusion that California was part of the continent." The most important of the four maps in Venegas' Noticia is Consag's Seno de California (Map 2 in our list above). This map is a cornerstone in California cartographical history and the evolution and final resolution of the concept of California as an Island. It is the first printing of Consag's original manuscript map delineating the region he explored during his expedition to the mouth of the Colorado River in 1746 (Wagner 554). This map conclusively ended the classic cartographic myth that California was an island. Father Kino had previously offered strong evidence that California was not an island, but he had not convinced the foremost contemporary cartographers of his theory. Kino had not proven his claim by actually crossing the Colorado River from Sonora to the California side. Even Venegas did not concur-until Consag led an expedition to the mouth of the Colorado River in 1746 and rowed in a canoe completely around the head of the Gulf. The following year Ferdinand VII issued a decree proclaiming that California should no longer be considered an island (see Schwartz & Ehrenberg, The Mapping of America, p. 133). A decade following that admission, this map recording Consag's discoveries was published in the present work. For more on Kino, see KINO herein. Dr. Mathes discusses Venegas below. Fernando Consag (variously also Ferdinand Kons?ak, Konsag, Konschak, etc.), Jesuit missionary, explorer, and cartographer, was born in Crotia in 1703 and died in 1759. Consag's work was plagiarized-or borrowed with credit-by the best of them, including Diderot, Arrowsmith, and even Humboldt. Venegas apparently experienced the same fate. "Venegas' Noticia de la California...is still reckoned the starting point for histories of California, and, incidentally, it was even more plagiarized than the works of Weems, Marshall, Ramsay, or Warren," p. 199, in John W. Caughey's "California and the Nation: A Tally of Two Histories" in California Historical Quarterly, Vol. 40, No. 3 (September 1961). Jesuit Andres Marcos Burriel (1719-1762) was so self-effacing that his name does not even appear on the title page of this well-edited version of Venegas' Noticia. Burriel was a man of many talents whose erudite interests ran the gamut from the Siete Partidas, to transcription of the medieval manuscripts of the Mozarabic liturgy associated with Toledo's Mozarabs, or Christians who had continued to practice their religion under Muslim rule. See Susan Boyton, Silent Music: Medieval Song and the Construction of History in Eighteenth-Century Spain (Oxford University Press, 2011). It is a little difficult to understand fully the Jesuit Expulsion in light of remarkable men like Kino, Venegas, Burriel, and Consag. The frontispiece map (Map 1 above), Mapa de la California su Golfo, y provincias fronteras en el continente de Nueva Espana is one of the most handsome maps of California from the colonial period, or any era of California history for that matter. The arresting illustrations framing the map are among the few eighteenth-century printed images of the natives of California. According to Dr. W. Michael Mathes, the Indians depicted on the maps are from Baja California. They were based upon a combination of sources, partly from verbal description, and some from drawings, such as Tirsch, et al. *** Maps: [1] [BURRIEL, Andres Marcos (after Kino and Consag)].

The map shows the mouth of the Colorado River and the head of the Gulf of California, as witnessed by Consag during his canoe exploration in 1746. Consag eliminates the small, elongated bay at the head of the Gulf. This cornerstone map of California finally concluded the classic cartographic myth that California was an island. See also Derek Hayes, Historical Atlas of California (Berkeley: University of California, 2007), p. 33. Lada-Mocarski 14: "The outer frame of the map in Vol. 3, facing p. 194, is usually somewhat cut into, either at the top or at the bottom.

Also named are Punta de Anonueuo, Punta de Pinas, Santa Catalina, Punta de la Concepcion, Punta de S. Diego, etc. Acapulco is near the southern extremity of the map. Lowery 428. Wagner, Cartography of the Northwest Coast 586. Very fine. [4] [BURRIEL, Andres Marcos (after Buache and Delisle)]. [Title within center cartouche at bottom of map] Mapa de la America Septentl. Asia Oriental y Mar del Sur intermedio formado sobre las memorias mas recientes y exactas hasta el ano de 1754. [above neat line at lower left] Manuel Rodriguez, Sculpst. [above neat line at lower right] M.A. de 1756. Three ornate cartouches within a small pictorial panorama, with flora and fauna and costumed groups of California natives wearing feathered headdresses, Spanish, and Asians. 31 x 36.2 cm; overall sheet size: 31.5 x 37.5 cm. Map faces p. 436 in Vol. III. Shown are the Pacific shores of Asia and America, with records of the latest explorations by the Spaniards, Russians, and English, especially on the upper Californian coasts. The map is a north polar projection of North America and northern Asia showing the routes of eight voyages of discovery, including Vitus Bering's search for the Northwest Passage and the apocryphal discovery of the Northwest Passage connecting the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. Cartographic elements include lines of longitude and latitude, scales, locations of bodies of water, etc. Mapoteca colombiana, p. 21 #23. Wagner, Cartography of the Northwest Coast of America 585, Vol. I, pp. 154-155. The map is based on the Philippe Buache/Joseph Nicolas Delisle map presented by the latter on April 8, 1750, at the Academie Royale des Sciences in Paris. It caused an immediate sensation. Burriel decried the inclusion of this map without his permission because it showed the Delisle fantastic geography of the Fonte voyage. Very fine.

        A scarce colonial New York 1/2 Penny Red revenue stamp affixed to a 1757 issue of the New-York Mercury

      The December 12, 1757 issue of New-York Mercury (New York: Printed by Hugh Gaine, at the Bible & Crown in Hanover-Square), 4 pages, 10" x 15.5", featuring on the front page, a deep, dark red 1/2 penny revenue stamp issued by the colony of New York (Scott Catalog #RM9). Folds only marginally affect the very dark red stamp affixed at the center of the page, marginal chips and tears not affecting text, light soling, else very good. New York and Massachusetts were the only American colonies to issue tax stamps. A similar revenue measure, passed by Parliament in 1765, met with enormous resistance in the American colonies and triggered the start of the American Revolution.

        Voyage Pittoresque de Paris

      1757. PARIS. Voyage Pittoresque de Paris; ou Indication de tout ce qu'il y a de plus beau dans cette grande Ville. By Antoine Nicholas Dezallier D'Argenville. x, [2], 375, 59 pp. Illustrated with a fine engraved frontispiece by J. Robert printed in red, and four engraved plates (of which two are folding). 12mo., 165 x 94 mm, bound in contemporary French sprinkled calf, spine gilt with small tools, board edges gilt, marbled endpapers, red edges. Paris: De Bure l'Aine, 1752. BOUND WITH: Table Alphabetique de toutes les Rues, Culs de Sacs, Passages, Quais, Ponts, Places publiques, &c. de la Ville & Faubourgs de Paris. xlv pp. Illustrated with a folding map of Paris. Paris: De Bure l'Aine, 1752. |~||~||~||~||~| Second Enlarged and First Illustrated Edition of this detailed guide to the painting, sculpture, and architecture of Paris, considerably augmented with the results of D'Argenville's continuing researches, here with the fine frontispiece executed by Jean Robert printed in red. Benezit recalls Robert's work thus: "Elève de J.C. Le Blon, dont il imita les procédés de gravures en couleurs à l'aide de quatre planches. Ses oeuvres sont remarquables." The present edition contains an extensive table of the artists discussed, in which the author has provided the artists' dates and their countries of origin, so far as could be determined; surely among the earliest attempts so to do. Also bound in the rear is a guide to the streets of Paris and an exceptionally detailed map, both of which appear to be unrecorded. Head and foot of spine slightly worn, internally fine.
