        De Morbis Navigantium , Liber Unus. Accedit Observatio de Effectu Extracti Cicutae Storkiano in Cancro

      Leiden: Theodore Haak, 1764. Octavo, completely uncut; edges rather dust-soiled; modern half calf, old library stamp and release stamp on verso of title-page. Dutch voyage medicine. First edition: an important treatise on the diseases of sailors and their cure. Rouppe, naval physician and surgeon, had travelled widely in the West Indies aboard the Dutch ship Princesse Carolina, and he based much of this work on observations made during these voyages. He offers a detailed account of the symptoms and treatment of many of the illnesses which were common amongst sailors, including an extended section on the vexed and topical question of scurvy, which would be addressed by Cook in his famous 1776 paper to the Royal Society. Rouppe's work also addresses the sometimes delicate issue of maintaining the health of sailors whilst they are subject to local temptations during stays in port. The book's importance was reflected in its 1772 translation into English. This copy was once in the famous Wellcome Library, and has their ownership and release stamps.

        Voyages from Asia to America , for completing the Discoveries of the North West coast of America. To which is prefixed, a Summary of the Voyages made by the Russians on the Frozen Sea, in search of a North East passage

      London: Printed for T. Jefferys, 1764. Quarto, with four maps (two folding and coloured); slightly browned, tear on fold of one map neatly repaired; a good copy in later half calf, extremities rubbed. The best edition. First edition of Jefferys' important work, an English version of Gerhard Müller's obscurely published account of Russian discoveries in eastern Asia and north America, which contained the first full narrative of the Bering expedition, a 'most important contemporary account of Bering's discoveries, by a scientist attached to his second expedition' (Howes). The text has significant additions by Jefferys, and thus is not simply a translation of Müller's work. It represents the best contemporary geographical knowledge regarding the question of the Northeast Passage. The book is especially significant for its maps, in particular the first large map of "Discoveries made by the Russians on the North West Coast of America", showing both Kamchatka and the northwest coast and incorporating some changes by Jefferys, including topographical information about Siberia, as well as descriptive notes about events on Bering's expedition. The second, a large folding map of Canada, shows discoveries from Canada to the west of Hudson Bay and some points on the western coast. Smaller maps depict "part of a Japanese map of the World", from a manuscript in the Sloane collection, and discoveries relative to the search for a passage to the South Sea by Admiral de Fonte and other Spanish, English and Russian navigators. These maps have an extra importance as we know that along with those in Staehlin's book they figured prominently in the planning for Cook's third voyage and were used by, and mostly confused, Cook himself during the progress of his final voyage (see Beaglehole, Life of Cook, pp. 486-489, 593-4, 599, 604-5, 613, 617, 627, 633). None of the maps had appeared in Müller's original work, which was published in St Petersburg, where he was a lecturer at the Academy, in 1753 as Nachrichten von Seereisen, the third volume of his Sammlung Russischer Geschichte: it later appeared in French as Voyages et Découvertes Faites par les Russes, with a single map.

The whole being calculated, as well for conveying a more accurate and extensive knowledge of the matters treated of to professed artists; as to initiate those, who are desirous to attempt these arts, into the method of preparing and using all the colours, and other substances employed in painting in oil, miniature, crayons, encaustic, enamel, varnish, distemper, and fresco; as also in gilding, &c. 2 volumes, second edition 1764, "with considerable additions and improvements", 8vo, 210 x 125 mm, 8¼ x 5 inches, Volume 1, pages xxvii, [9], 1 - 304, 321 - 522, plus 10 pages of index, (page numbers 305 - 320 were not used, nothing is missing, collated and guaranteed complete) Volume 2, pages, xiv, [14] 1 - 462 plus 10 pages of index, rebound in full modern calf, contrasting labels of maroon and green with gilt lettering and rules, raised bands with central gilt designs and rules, double gilt rules to edges of covers, new endpapers, edges of Vol 1, stained brown and the edges of Vol 2, stained yellow.

Among his friends he counted Dr Samuel Johnson. With the Handmaid to the Arts, first published in 1758, Dossie intended to give artists and artisans an understanding of the technical processes they were using. As a resource, it was well regarded by eighteenth and early nineteenth century artisans and it continues to be a standard reference for practical techniques of that era. The subjects treated in Volume I are listed in the title above with Part I being the largest section and includes mending and cleaning paintings and varnishing and preserving them.

        Viaggi di Enrico Wanton alle Terre Incognite Australi , ed ai Regni delle Scimie, e de' Cinocefali

      Berna" [Venice], 1764. Four volumes, small octavo, with an engraved frontispiece and 33 plates; a most attractive set in early paper boards, speckled spines with ochre labels picked out in gilt, signed "G.T." at base of spines, a little bumped. With a map of the Monkey-cities of Australia. A wonderful imaginary voyage to Australia: second, greatly extended edition, the first to include the map. The work is famous for its striking suite of engravings, which are evidently modelled on Venetian scenery; it is 'exceedingly rare and very seldom catalogued, any edition is worth adding to a collection' (Davidson). This is the 1764 "Berna" (actually Venice) edition of Seriman's extraordinary satire, notable as the first to include Seriman's continuation to the land of the Dogs, the first to include a portrait of the hero "Enricus Wanton" and, perhaps most significantly, the first to include a map (making it one of only a handful of imaginary voyages to Australia which actually chart the countryside and prominent cities of the land). Seriman (1708-84) was a Venetian from an influential Armenian merchant family. Although little information has surfaced about his life, he wrote several books, of which this is the most startlingly original. Purporting to be a translation from the English (in fact no English version has ever appeared), this work describes how Wanton escapes the dull confines of England and discovers the Southern Land after a shipwreck. Enrico and his fellow traveller Roberto venture inland and discover a highly refined society of monkeys, with all the accoutrements of European civilization. Our heroes quickly come to favour, eventually becoming Ministers of the Realm, over-indulging in coffee-houses, balls, and regular trips to the theatre. The chronicle of their excesses is beautifully realized in the suite of engravings which accompany the text. The book was first published in Venice in 1749 as a two-volume voyage to the land of the Apes, with twenty-four plates by the Swiss artist Giorgio Fossati.

George also references competing suitors and suggests Ursula keep his letter private. <br><br> Ursulaâ&#128;&#153;s letter [September 11th, 1764] to George laments the anguish he has experienced pining after her. She assures him of her love for him and wishes: â&#128;&#156;â&#128;¦oh that I could now return myself to thy arms with the passion of that which I am obliged to have thee to go so far for.â&#128;&#157; She begs him to wait patiently while she sails to meet him. Though seasick and weary, she writes, â&#128;&#156;I shall endure if I attain thee as my reward, will most agreeably satisfy meâ&#128;¦â&#128;&#157; <br><br> The marriage contract [July 10, 1766] bears the signatures of 26 members of the Quakers of Virginia, many of which were of the Pleasants - an influential Virginia Quaker family.

        The Elements of Navigation; containing the Theory and Practice. With all the necessary Tables. To which is added, A Treatise of Marine Fortification

      London: J. Nourse, 1764. Two volumes, large octavo, 11 folding plates and five folding maps (two celestial), many diagrams, engraved headpieces; an attractive set in contemporary sprinkled calf, hinges worn but strong; spines numbered but unlettered. Robertson on navigation. A fine set of the rare second edition of the standard textbook on navigation for the eighteenth-century British navy. First published in 1754, Robertson&#39;s Elements of Navigation was considered important enough that it was updated and republished every decade or so, meaning that it was used and studied by everyone from Carteret to Matthew Flinders, and undoubtedly by Cook as well. Notably the fourth edition of 1780 was revised by William Wales, astronomer and member of Captain Cook&#39;s second voyage. Robertson had a long and important career, and was involved in many practical and theoretical developments in navigation and mapping. In 1747 he was appointed assistant to James Hodgson at the Royal Mathematical School at Christ&#39;s Hospital in the City of London, and two decades later was appointed clerk and librarian to the Royal Society. He was also involved in trialling Harrison&#39;s chronometers. Most of the engravings are by the famous London engraver Thomas Jefferys, who produced many important 18th-century maps. Attractively, in a standard naval reference work of its daThe double-globe map of the world is by Basire, perhaps better known for his portrait of Captain Cook. Basire&#39;s map shows tropical currents and winds, and depicts Terra Australis/New Holland in the years before Cook&#39;s first voyage. (Torres Strait is not shown, as it was not known in the English tradition until 1769). This edition was improved by the addition of an excellent dissertation on the rise and progress of modern navigation by Dr James Wilson. Perhaps attesting to this particular edition&#39;s use and importance, this is a surprisingly scarce work: when Helen Wallis edited the journals of Carteret she had to resort to using the later third edition, rather than the second which actually travelled with Carteret, as the second &#39;is rare and no copy is in the national collections in Great Britain&#39; (Helen Wallis, Carteret&#39;s Voyage, vol. I, p. 144). A copy of this edition is now listed at Cambridge.

Full morocco, gilt-ruled, in antique style. Marginal repairs to title and one or two other leaves, not affecting text, but very good. Errata corrected in an early hand.</p><p>First Edition, second state, with the title dated 1764. "The title-page is also found in an earlier state, with line 7 set in English instead of Great Primer and ending with a full point instead of a colon, and with the last line reading: M DCC LXII. Both states are printed from the same setting of type (with these exceptions), and neither is found as a cancel" (Gaskell). Dalby&#39;s short work on the treatment of hydrophobia is the first of only two medical books printed by Baskerville, the other being William Hunter&#39;s Anatomy of the Human Gravid Uterus (1774). Unlike the Gravid Uterus, Dalby&#39;s work is extremely rare on the market, with no auction records over the past 25 years; this is the first copy we have seen in over 40 years of trading. The work was printed for the author and sold by subscription. The subscribers&#39; list (leaves a2-a4) cites fewer than 200 people, it is likely that the edition was not much larger than that.

        Harmonischer Einklang

      . Aquarell über Bleistift auf Papier, unten rechts ligiert monogrammiert: "NATHE"; 12,5 x 15,6 cm. Christoph Nathe gehört zur frühen Generationen sächsischer Landschaftsmaler, die der Gattung - bisher in der Hierarchie der Bildgenres stets untergeordnet - einen neuen Stellenwert verliehen. Ausgehend von der Dresdener Akademie, die bei ihrer Neugründung 1764 erstmals eine eigene Professur für Landschaft etablierte, entwickelt sich eine eigenständige sächsische Landschaftskunst, die auch für die Entwicklung der deutschen Romantik grundlegend wichtig wurde. Obwohl nicht in Dresden, sondern an der Leipziger Akademie bei Adam Friedrich Oeser in der Malerei und bei Friedrich Bause im Kupferstich ausgebildet, wandte sich Nathe schon bald der Landschaft zu und stand mit den Dresdener Entwicklungen in steter und enger Beziehung. Seine aquarellierte Bleistiftzeichnung operiert nicht mit berühmten Bauten, beeindruckenden Ruinen oder spektakulären Naturereignissen. Sie zielt vielmehr auf den Einklang von Mensch und Natur. Das Blatt zeigt einen kleinen Hof zwischen Bäumen, ein verschachteltes, beschauliches Ensemble aus Holzhäusern, Remise und Ställen. Harmonisch verbindet sich die bäuerliche Architektur mit Büschen und dem Laub der Baumkronen. In einer klaren Diagonalkomposition setzt Nathe das malerische Gehöft in Beziehung zur flachen Landschaft und dem hohen Himmel und ordnet dem Vordergrund eine detaillierte, doch nie kleinliche Staffage aus Tieren, Figuren, Wagen und einzelnen Pflanzen zu. Dabei führt er den Blick so geschickt über das Blatt, daß die ausbalancierte Konstruktion ganz natürlich, wie zufällig gesehen, erscheint. Die subtile Lavierung, für die Nathe schon zu Lebzeiten gerühmt wurde, verstärkt die atmosphärische Dichte der Szene zum Eindruck eines hellen, friedlichen Sommertags. Die Schatten sind sanft, die hellbraunen Lasuren bilden keine scharfen Kontraste zum Papierton, doch beleben sie die Ansicht in ihrer ausgewogenen Verteilung und in den fein abgestuften Tönen. Wie der fast gleich alte Johann Christian Klengel, zu jener Zeit Professor für Landschaftsmalerei in Dresden, richtete auch Nathe sein Interesse weniger auf topographisch bestimmbare Orte im Sinne einer lexikalischen Erfassung und genauen Wiedergabe. Vielmehr interessierten ihn typische Ansichten und charakteristische Szenerien. Kleine Höfe, Dorfränder, das pittoreske Repertoire der heimatlichen Umgebung, fügte Nathe zu Kompositionen, die von der holländischen Malerei des 17. Jahrhunderts ebenso geprägt sind wie von der direkten Anschauung der Natur. Das Zeichnen im Freien erlebte in der künstlerischen Ausbildung der Zeit einen ungemeinen Aufschwung. Nathe, seit 1787 Direktor der Görlitzer Zeichenschule, hielt seine Schüler zu diesen Übungen an und fertigte selbst auf zahlreichen Wanderungen eine Vielzahl kleiner Reiseskizzen, die als Radierungen und Lithographien große Verbreitung fanden.

Durch die jedes der vier Blätter begleitenden Versunterschriften ist es auch ohne Lektüre des Buches möglich, den wiedergegebenen Vorgang zu überschauen, auch dies ein Merkmal der Einzelblattkunst, der Nilson zugehörte" (Lanckoronska/Oehler I, 37). - Paul von Stetten der Jüngere (1731-1808) diente seiner Heimatstadt Augsburg in verschiedenen Ämtern, 1792 wurde er Stadtpfleger. Daneben war er vielfältig kulturell tätig, verfaßte literarische Werke und wichtige historische Arbeiten. - Sauber und frisch, Titel unten rechts mit kleinem Rundstempel in Rot, oben rechts mit alter handschriftlicher Initiale.
