Aufl.: 1754). - Heinrich Bünting (1545-1606), evangelischer Theologe, Geograph und Chronist, wurde durch die „Itinerarium Sacrae Scripturae“ bekannt. Es ist sein bedeutendstes Werk, ein reich illustrierter Bericht über die heiligen Stätten Palästinas. Es wurde vielfach aufgelegt sowie in verschiedene Sprachen übersetzt. Mindestens 61 Ausgaben sind bekannt, darunter allein in englischer Sprache sechs zwischen 1619 und 1682. „Das Itinerarium ist ein typischer Lehnstuhlreiseführer. Sie wird als die vollständigste Zusammenfassung des damaligen Wissens über die biblische Geographie betrachtet, sowohl des Alten als auch des Neuen Testaments. Es gibt keinen Hinweis, dass Bünting je im Heiligen Land geweilt hat. Anscheinend stützt sich seine Arbeit auf eigene Quellenforschung und auf die Lektüre von zahlreichen zeitgenössichen Reiseberichten und Veröffentlichungen zu diesem Thema“ (Van der Heijden Nr. 47, in: Cart. Helvetica 23, S. 13). - Bünting zeichnete die Reisewege biblischer Figuren von Adam über Abraham und Moses bis zu Christus und den Aposteln getreu den Angaben der Heiligen Schrift nach und organisierte diese Informationen nach den Orten Palästinas, die jeweils ein eigenes Kapitel erhielten.

It is a situation which I can truly say I never either coveted or sought, and with the terrible responsibility & pressure of work. I should be overwhelmed were it not for the assurances of support which I have received from many quarters most material to enable me successfully to get thro' my arduous task ...", he continues about Sir Charles STUART (1779-1845, Diplomat, Ambassador to France and Russia) "I can however venture to say this much to you, in confidence, that I did at the earliest opportunity open the question of the Peerage in the proper quarter where it was most favourably received, altho' (as might be expected) some difficulty was felt as to the moment at which it should be actually done ... I consider the question is one about which I feel a strong personal interest, which will prevent me from overlooking it ..." he has a message to Lady Hardwicke to tell her "that I find upon enquiry at the Home Office, that apartments are no longer given to any one in Holyrood House so that I cannot help ...

Frontis to page 50 there is a 1" stain at the top edge (marginal, no text touched). Title page is well thumbed; there is a 2" crack at the gutter of the frontis/title page. Book is well thumbed from use at the first quarter of book. The 1st map has a 2" tear at fold. There is a 2"x1" tear/square missing in page 241. The top edge again has a spot from pages 220-320. There is a 4 cm spot on page 291. Occasional dog eared page. Occasional toning to pages. Occasional spot. Section Historia, page 225, 3" tear.

Despite patina, a pleasing, large tome, which, in a cradle, is enjoyable to peruse. A 1757 edition of Heinrich Bunting's work documenting travels in the Holy Scriptures. This edition has two folding maps, 23 plates, and one frontis plate; the frontis is particularly notable due to the map of the globe, with the America's portion shown in darkness (see pictures). The two maps are: 1. Palestine (at the time)/ Israel 2. The Mediterranean The OCLC listings for this 1757 edition show some with fewer maps/plates, but it appears the best copies have two maps and 24 illustrations (counting the frontis) so I believe this copy is complete.

Birminghamiae [Birmingham]: Typis Johannis Baskerville, 1757. FIRST BASKERVILLE EDITION, 4to, pp. [x], 103, [2] 105-231, 233-432. Initial blank discarded. Slightly later diced russia by Edwin Moore of Cambridge (or using his tools), boards with a gilt border built up from three rolls, spine divided by raised bands, black morocco label, other compartments quartered diagonally with gilt tools in each quarter and small floral gilt cornerpieces, comb-marbled endpapers, edges gilt. Some light spotting and faint dustiness. Joints sometime almost invisibly repaired, the spine ends now worn making the presence of the newer leather more obvious, a few scratches to boards, rear flyleaf repaired. Gold-printed bookplate of Canford Manor (Birmingham) and shelfmark label to front pastedown. An unusually restrained binding by (or using the tools of) Edwin Moore (or Moor) of Cambridge - Moore's work, known for the high quality of his leathers and finishing, is most often seen featuring Harleian-style lozenges made of massed gilt tools on the boards, and with wider borders built up using four or five rolls, often on red or blue morocco. The diced russia and less prominent tooling on this binding may reflect the changing tastes towards the end of Moore's career, or his tools may have passed on to another binder after this death (Moore himself had taken over the tools of Thomas Dawson the Younger in the 1730s). Most of the tools used in the binding recur in various combinations on known Edwin Moore bindings: the border tools on the boards (one an alternation of swashes and saltire … [Click Below for Full Description]

BRETEUIL, Louis Charles Auguste le Tonnelier, baron de
[1757].. Manuscript plan of the bay of Rio de Janeiro in pen and ink with wash, signed “Breteuil fecit” [together with] a pen and ink prospect of Rio de Janeiro, both dissected and mounted on canvas. Plan: 535 by 735mm (21 by 29 inches); View: 290 by 790mm (11.5 by 31 inches). A detailed map of Rio de Janeiro made in 1757 by the Comte (later Baron) de Breteuil, together with a prospect of the city, sacked by a French corsair in 1711. Louis Charles Auguste le Tonnelier, baron de Breteuil, baron de Preuilly (1730-1807) was a French aristocrat, diplomat and statesman. He was the last Prime Minister of France to serve under the Bourbon monarchy, appointed by Louis XVI only 100 hours before the storming of the Bastille. Breteuil was born in 1730 at the château of Azay-le-Ferron into a well-connected aristocratic family. He was educated in Paris before joining the army, where he served under Thomas Arthur, comte de Lally, baron de Tollendal (1702-1766) in his ill-fated command of the French forces in India during the Seven Years' War against England. With orders to join the French forces in India, Lally and Breteuil sailed from France on 2 May 1757 under the command of Vice Admiral Anne Antoine, Comte d'Aché (1701-1780). During the voyage, an epidemic forced the fleet to put in at Rio de Janeiro for six weeks. The Portuguese, neutral in the conflict between France and England, initially refused access to the city. This, quite possibly, was a result of the fact that the French had sacked Rio in 1711 under René Du Guay-Trouin, a former corsair who took the supposedly impregnabl … [Click Below for Full Description]

MACHIAVELLI. - [THE FIRST SCANDINAVIAN EDITION OF "THE PRINCE" - POSSIBLY THE RAREST MACHIAVELLI-TRANSLATION]
Stockholm, Grefing, 1757. Small 8vo. In the original blank wrappers. Dampstain to upper part of spine and upper part of back wrapper, affecting last blank leaf. Old owner's name to title-page. First blank leaf with comments in recent hand in pencil. From the library of Swedish crime author Henning Mankell. Text printed in two columns. Title-page with lovely engraved vignette, depicting a putti with a spyglass (symbolising the Enlightenment) and lovely woodcut vignettes. Untouched and unrestored in completely original condition. A magnificent copy. (16), 256 pp. ¶ Exceedingly scarce first edition of the first Scandinavian translation of Machiavelli's "Il Principe", namely the first Swedish translation. Through its Scandinavian translation, the work came to have an immense impact on Scandinavian politics and philosophy and was considered a breakthrough work of political thought, albeit highly controversial and not at all acceptable at the time. Even though antedating some other European versions by more than two centuries, the first translation into a Nordic language came to signify substantial changes in the political climate of the Nordic countries and sparked a debate that was to last another century, until Machavelli was finally accepted in the North. <br><br>""The Prince" was not to be translated in Scandinavia until more than two centuries later, partly because in the meantime it could be read in Latin - in the versions of Tegli, Conring and Langenhert - and later in French, but also because at that time a work which established, among other things, the superiority of t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Venegas, Miguel (and Andres Marcos Burriel)
Madrid: Viuda de Manuel Fernandez, 1757. First edition. Hardcover. Three volumes. Small 4tos. (24),240; (8),564; (8),436. Four folding copperplate maps: Vol. 1 contains the Mapa de la California, y su Costa Oriental Nuevamente Descubierta, based on Padre Kino's revolutionary map. Vol. 3 contains three maps: Seno de California; Carta de la Mar del Sur; and Mapa de la America Septentl. etc. Full limp vellum, early but probably not contemporary; green leather lettering labels, gilt. Vellum lightly soiled and rubbed, labels chipped, old mend to verso of the map in Volume 1 and to the tittle page of Volume 3, occasional light foxing. But overall a lovely set. In Spanish. The first two volumes were taken from the manuscript of Padre Venegas written between 1734 and 1739. It went unpublished because the Spanish Crown did not want details of New Spain disseminated. But eventually another Jesuit, Padre Burriel, edited the manuscript and added a third volume bringing the work up to date. The large map in volume 1 based on Kino's 1702 map includes ten captioned vignettes depicting local natives and wildlife, and also the martyrdoms of Frs. Carranco and Tamaral. It is indeed revolutionary as it was the first attempt to end the notion that California was an island. Padre Consag's map, Seno de California, finished the job and is based on his own findings in a 1746 expedition to the mouth of the Colorado. This is the first printing of that map, considered foundational to the cartographic history of the Southwest. As Tooley notes (p. 111), Kino's map was not generally accepted; it was not … [Click Below for Full Description]

Shelvocke, George
London, 1757. [6],iii,[3],476pp. plus folding map and four engraved plates (two folding). Contemporary speckled calf, gilt. Some scuffing and wear to boards and hinge, corners lightly worn. Contemporary ownership inscription on titlepage. Minor scattered soiling and foxing. A nice copy in unsophisticated condition. Very good. The third and best edition (styled "second edition, with additions" on the title), after the first of 1726. Shelvocke was engaged in a privateering expedition against Spanish shipping on the Pacific coast of America. He sailed as far north as Baja California, and two of the plates depict men and women of that peninsula. He also reported gold in the region. A storm had separated Shelvocke's ship from the accompanying vessel on the expedition, and Shelvocke did not wait for the captain of that ship at the agreed locations in the Canaries and Juan Fernandez islands; instead, he sailed for Brazil and then to the west coast of South America, including stops at Payta, Peru, and Lower California. Two of the plates are notable for their depictions of California natives. Shelvocke returned home via Guam and Macao. Upon his return to England he was accused of piracy and taken prisoner. Betagh, in the preface to his book about the same expedition, describes Shelvocke's book as "entirely a deception, and his whole conduct a disgrace to his country." Hill notes that "this second [actually third] edition is superior to that of the first edition of 1726. It was edited by Shelvocke's son, who corrected the text extensively in a further effort to vindicate his father f … [Click Below for Full Description]

London, 1757. xii,255pp. plus folding plate. Quarto. Expertly bound to style in three-quarter 18th- century calf over 18th-century marbled paper boards, spine gilt, red morocco label. Very good. William Smith was a graduate of Yale who became a distinguished New York lawyer, and later justice of the province. He was involved in a number of major land litigation cases in colonial New York, and it is likely that because of this he and Holland would have become closely acquainted. A Loyalist during the Revolution, Smith moved to Canada upon its conclusion and there became a chief justice as well. This history covers the period up to 1736. He wrote a continuation which remained in manuscript form until it was published by the New-York Historical Society in 1826. "One of the worthiest examples of historical literature produced in later colonial times" - Larned. An important early history of New York. Howes rates this large paper edition a "d." This is only the second large paper copy of the work we have encountered. HOWES S703, "d" (the large paper issue). STREETER SALE 871. CHURCH 1023. SABIN 84566.

ROBERT DE VAUGONDY, Didier (1723-1786)
Vaugondy, Paris. Copper-engraved map, with original outline colour. Bottom right margin re-inforced. Center fold creased, otherwise excellent. A very fine eighteenth-century map depicting all of North America, by one of France's greatest cartographers This highly attractive map depicts North America during an especially fascinating time in its history, the period immediately before the French and Indian War. The British Colonies hug the Atlantic seaboard, outlined in pink, while the immense Gallic empire, outlined in green, embracing both New France (Canada) and Louisiana (the Mississippi Basin) occupies most of the interior of the continent. This highly detailed map labels numerous native villages and European forts in the interior of the continent. Spanish Mexico reaches all the way north to modern-day Colorado, and Baja California is shown accurately to be a peninsula, and not an island as previously thought. The Pacific Northwest remains entirely enigmatic, labelled as the "Terres Inconnues." The map also depicts the islands of the Caribbean, which are shown to be in the possession of the various European powers. Vaugondy consulted several sources in devising his map including Bellin's excellent rendering of the Great Lakes, and Guillame De L'Isle's and Jean-Baptiste D'Anville's maps of the Mississippi Basin. The composition is graced by an elegant title cartouche featuring a waterfall inhabited by a cayman, and framed by coulisses of palm trees accompanied by native Americans. This map was included as one of the most important maps in Vaugondy's celebrated Atlas Univer … [Click Below for Full Description]

Maurice of SAXONY Prussia French Marshal Color Illustrated
Condition: Very good. When ordering from the US, parcels may be subject to import tax and duty charges, which the buyer is responsible to pay. 1757 Art of War by Maurice of SAXONY Prussia French Marshal Color Illustrated EXTREMELY Valuable Military Treatise comp@$8,000 Maurice, Count of Saxony (1696 - 1750) was a Saxon soldier in French service who became a Marshal and later also Marshal General of France. We find this same book for sale elsewhere for over $8,000! This is Saxe's most popular work and was a remarkable book on the art of war. Scottish philosopher Thomas Carlyle described it as 'a strange military farrago, dictated, as I should think, under opium.' It was published after Saxe died, but for more than two centuries after its first publication, it maintained a remarkable work on war. Saxe hated Prussian military systems, claiming that the French military principles were far superior to the German way.

DISSERTATION SUR L'AETHER DANS LAQUELLE ON EXAMINE LES DIFFERENTS PRODUITS DU MELANGE DE L'ESPIRIT DE VIN AVEC LES ACIDES MINERAUX (1757) by Antoine Baume Published in Paris Scarce first edition.(text in French) 332 pages Errata p. 324. Publishers booklist p. [337-340] Plate at page 318 excised. In 1757 Antoine Baume published his "Dissertation sur I'cether," in the first 26 pages of which he gave an historical discourse on tether vitriolique. On account of its inflammability ethyl ether was termed at this time naphtha, but was also called "vitriolic ether," "sulphuric ether," and "vitriol-naphtha," since it was prepared by the action of sulphuric acid on alcohol. ANTOINE BAUME (1728-1804) French chemist, was born at Senlis on the 26th of February 1728. He was apprenticed to the chemist Claude Joseph Geoffroy, and in 1752 was admitted a member of the Ecole de Pharmacie, where in the same year he was appointed professor of chemistry. He devised many improvements in technical processes, e.g. for bleaching silk, dyeing, gilding, purifying saltpetre, etc., but he is best known as the inventor of the Baumé scale hydrometer or "spindle" which provides scientific measurements for the density of liquids. The scale remains associated with his name but is often improperly spelt "Beaum".

(BASKERVILLE IMPRINTS). (EXTRA-ILLUSTRATED BOOKS). VIRGIL
Birminghamiae: Typis Johannis Baskerville, 1757. First Baskerville Printing. This was the first book printed by the celebrated John Baskerville and is widely considered his best. Renouard says it is the "most beautiful and most sought after," Gaskell deems it the printer's "finest book," and Dibdin calls it "unrivalled." DNB says that the "calligraphic type, the density of the ink, the excellence of the presswork, the smoothness and gloss of the paper--all these elements work in harmony in a design that was unusually sober for a relatively expensive book, since there are no copperplates or ornaments of any kind." That sobriety has been relieved in the present copy by the addition of copperplates from the 1654 Ogilby edition, the first English printing with illustrations. Ogilby commissioned the German painter Francis Cleyn for the illustrations, which were executed by the foremost etchers and engravers of the day, including William Faithorne, Wenceslaus Hollar, and Peter Lombard, among others. The plates, of considerable beauty, skill, and interest, are situated within a long-standing tradition and corpus of illustration for Virgil's works, beginning with near contemporary manuscripts and extending through the early and late Medieval periods until Gruninger's first printed illustrated edition of 1502. Our superb binding is unsigned, and we have been unable to identify the binder's tools in any of the various bibliographies. The unknown artisan was clearly a first-rate practitioner of the craft, as the impression of the design and manifested level of skill are little short … [Click Below for Full Description]

A fine example of the first edition, second issue, of Piranesi's monumental survey of the antiquities of Rome, with which he established himself as the leading light of the archaeology of Rome. Having spent eight years recording artefacts and buildings, including the the extensive remains of sepulchres, he published this collection of of over two hundred plates. About half of the items he recorded are now lost. According to Piranesi himself only seventy copies of the first issue had been printed before he lost patience with his patron Viscount Charlemont's failure to send funds promised to underwrite the costs of publication. He removed the dedications to each volume, expunged Charlemont's name from the text and added the text of two letters he send to the viscount demanding the promised funds (dated February 1757). … [Click Below for Full Description]

(BASKERVILLE IMPRINTS). (EXTRA-ILLUSTRATED BOOKS). VIRGIL
Birminghamiae: Typis Johannis Baskerville, 1757. First Baskerville Printing. This was the first book printed by the celebrated John Baskerville and is widely considered his best. Renouard says it is the "most beautiful and most sought after," Gaskell deems it the printer's "finest book," and Dibdin calls it "unrivalled." DNB says that the "calligraphic type, the density of the ink, the excellence of the presswork, the smoothness and gloss of the paper--all these elements work in harmony in a design that was unusually sober for a relatively expensive book, since there are no copperplates or ornaments of any kind." That sobriety has been relieved in the present copy by the addition of copperplates from the 1654 Ogilby edition, the first English printing with illustrations. Ogilby commissioned the German painter Francis Cleyn for the illustrations, which were executed by the foremost etchers and engravers of the day, including William Faithorne, Wenceslaus Hollar, and Peter Lombard, among others. The plates, of considerable beauty, skill, and interest, are situated within a long-standing tradition and corpus of illustration for Virgil's works, beginning with near contemporary manuscripts and extending through the early and late Medieval periods until Gruninger's first printed illustrated edition of 1502. Our superb binding is unsigned, and we have been unable to identify the binder's tools in any of the various bibliographies. The unknown artisan was clearly a first-rate practitioner of the craft, as the impression of the design and manifested level of skill are little short … [Click Below for Full Description]

Heinrich Bunting
Erfurt: Johann David Jungicol. See pictures. Binding well worn, edge wear, ties expired, soiled, etc.; despite wear it has the pleasing look of antiquity. Frontis to page 50 there is a 1" stain at the top edge (marginal, no text touched). Title page is well thumbed; there is a 2" crack at the gutter of the frontis/title page. Book is well thumbed from use at the first quarter of book. The 1st map has a 2" tear at fold. There is a 2"x1" tear/square missing in page 241. The top edge again has a spot from pages 220-320. There is a 4 cm spot on page 291. Occasional dog eared page. Occasional toning to pages. Occasional spot. Section Historia, page 225, 3" tear. Quire at 281-296 sticks out a little (shaken? but seems not loose). Nail rust through rear pastedown and flyleaf from straps. 2nd map sticks out top a little. Occasional stray graphite mark. Despite patina, a pleasing, large tome, which, in a cradle, is enjoyable to peruse. A 1757 edition of Heinrich Bunting's work documenting travels in the Holy Scriptures. This edition has two folding maps, 23 plates, and one frontis plate; the frontis is particularly notable due to the map of the globe, with the America's portion shown in darkness (see pictures). The two maps are: 1. Palestine (at the time)/ Israel 2. The Mediterranean The OCLC listings for this 1757 edition show some with fewer maps/plates, but it appears the best copies have two maps and 24 illustrations (counting the frontis) so I believe this copy is complete. This is a thick tome, with several different works, with different title pages and pagination. Work … [Click Below for Full Description]
