Nodal, Bartolome & Gonzalo de.
1766. Madrid. 4to. 1 ff., [2], [14], 162, [2], 45 pp., engraved folding map. Contemporary limp vellum, spine lettered in ink, excellent condition. A wonderful copy, in clean and crisp condition.- Second edition of Nodal's important work, including Teixeira's suppressed map of the Straits of Magellan, which illustrated one of the most important discoveries in the history of world trade, the discovery of the Strait of Le Maire or, as the Nodal brothers christened it, the Strait of San Vicente. The Nodal expedition was a reconnaissance mission sponsored by King Philip III of Spain in 1619. The purpose was to confirm the recent discoveries of Jacob Le Maire and Willem Schouten of a passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific to the south of Tierra del Fuego. The expedition was led by the brothers Bartolome and Gonzalo Garcia de Nodal, who were accompanied by cosmographer Diego Ramirez de Arrellano, who served as the chief navigator. The expedition departed from Lisbon on September 27, 1618 and by January 22, 1619 the two ships entered the strait discovered by Schouten and Le Maire between Tierra del Fuego and Staten Island. The expedition named the Strait "San Vicente." The pair reconnoitered the region to the south of Tierra del Fuego including the Drake Passage, before returning to Spain on July 7, 1619. Le Maire and Schouten, sponsored by independent Dutch merchants, had circumnavigated via the new-found strait from 1615 to 1617. The importance of their find lay in the fact that Spain preferred to operate a closed sea policy in the Pacific; they claimed that the … [Click Below for Full Description]

ASHKENAZI, Jacob ben Isaac.
Amsterdam Herz Levi and Kashman, 1766. Octavo, (19 x 11.5 cm); [2], 510 ll. Many woodcut illustrations in text. Text in Hebrew and Yiddish in Tzena U'rena font. Restored calf boards, with gilt decorations to spine. Includes Sabbath prayers at the beginning of the book. The work, sometimes called The Women's Bible, is a didactic prose work written in Yiddish circa 1590s, whose structure parallels the weekly Torah portions of the Pentateuch and Haftarot which are read in the weekly synagogue services. The work mixes Biblical passages with teachings from the Oral Torah, such as the Talmud's Aggadot and Midrashim (allegories, legends, tales and commentary and interpretations of the Torah). The name of the book derives from a verse of the Song of Songs that begins: Tz?enha ur?enha b?not Tziyyon ("Go forth and see, O ye daughters of Zion", Song 3:11). The nature of the source of the name indicates that the book was intended for women, who at the time would have been less versed in the Hebrew language and less educated than men. There have been at least 300 editions of the book printed, starting in the 1590s, first three printed in Poland. The author, Rabbi Jacob ben Isaac Ashkenazi (1550-1624) was born near Lublin, Poland. He would tour the neighbouring communities and to publicly read the weekly Torah portions (Parashat HaShavua). He has written a few works on the Halacha and the interpretations of the scriptures, but Tzena U'rena remains his most famous work. Vinograd, Amsterdam 1905. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The editor, 'G.S.', remembering Locke's association with the government of Carolina sees in Locke's Observations a number applicable to horticulture in America, and imagines that the consequent commerce in silk, wines, and olives will induce the most perfect harmony . . . between Great Britain and her colonies" (Hunt). - Visit our website for additional images and information.

HAYDN, Joseph 1732-1809
2 pp. Quarto (195 x 172 mm.). In dark brown ink. With integral autograph panel addressed to Monsieur Sieber, Marchand de la Musique, Paris, with additions of Rue La Honoré a l'Hotel d'Alligre possibly in another hand. Original dark red wax seal fully intact. On laid paper with watermark "JRP." In German (with translation). Haydn is surprised not to have heard from Sieber as the publisher was supposed to have purchased 4 symphonies and 6 pianoforte sonatas from him. The composer is apparently bound to the Viennese violinist Johann Tost (who had purchased the rights to a number of his other works) for the symphonies, but Tost has not paid him for these. Haydn pledges to compose these 4 symphonies for Sieber if he takes over Tost's debt. The composer goes on to say that Tost has no rights at all to the pianoforte sonatas and has thus "swindled" Sieber; he urges the publisher to claim damages in Vienna. Haydn then inquires about Tost's behaviour in Paris and whether or not he sold Sieber 6 quartets. He asks in closing "will the Quartet, and the 2 Symphonies be engraved and soon appear?" "Monsieur! I am very surprised not to have received a letter from you, because (as Herr Tost wrote to me a long time ago) you were supposed to have purchased 4 Symphonies and 6 pianoforte Sonatas for one hundred Louis d'or: as far as I am concerned, I regret being bound to Herr Tost for the 4 Symphonies, because he still owes me 300f [Gulden] for the 4 pieces. If you will take over this debt of 300f, I guarantee to compose these four Symphonies for you; but Herr Tost has no rights at all to the … [Click Below for Full Description]

16 folding engraved plates. 4 p.l., 192, [13] pp. Large 4to, cont. half-calf & marbled boards (joints & corners carefully repaired), spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. London: Printed for the Author, 1766. First edition of the author's first book; this is a fine association copy, having belonged to Matthew Boulton (1728-1809), the well-known engineer, who established a famous factory in Soho for the manufacture of high quality metal work and other goods. Cumming (1733-1814), mathematician and mechanic, carried on a watchmaking business in Bond Street, London for many years. The two, with such similar professional interests, must have known each other well. This was considered to be a "definitive professional textbook."-Taylor, Mathematical Practitioners of Hanoverian England. The first part is devoted to a discussion of improvements possible to clock works and the second part is concerned with improvements to watch works. Fine copy, lacking the leaf of errata, as is often the case. Bookplate of Matthew Boulton. Baillie, Clocks and Watches, p. 270. Baillie, Watchmakers and Clockmakers of the World, p. 72.

(BOUGAINVILLE, LOUIS ANTOINE de).
1766. Paris, Saillant & Nyon, 1771. 4to. Near contemp. hcalf. Gilt spine with gilt lettering. Very light wear along edges. Stamps on title-page. (8, incl. htitle),417,(1) pp., 20 engraved maps and charts (numb. 1-19 + 16 bis) of which 18 are folded, including the large world map. 2 engraved plates (numb. 1-2). Internally clean and fine, a few leaves with marginal brownspots. ¶ First edition of this famous circumnavigation, being the first voyage around the world with professional naturalists and geographers onboard. Bougainville was the first Frenchman to sail around the world. In 1771, Bougainville published his travel log from the expedition under the title "Le voyage autour du monde, par la frégate La Boudeuse, et la flûte L'Étoile". The book describes the geography, biology and anthropology of Argentina (then a Spanish colony), Patagonia, Tahiti and Indonesia (then a Dutch colony). The book was a sensation, especially the description of Tahitian society. Bougainville described it as an earthly paradise where men and women lived in blissful innocence, far from the corruption of civilisation.Bougainville's descriptions powerfully expressed the concept of the noble savage, influencing the utopian thoughts of philosophers such as Jean-Jacques Rousseau before the advent of the French Revolution. Denis Diderot's book Supplément au voyage de Bougainville retells the story of Bougainville's landing on Tahiti, narrated by an anonymous reader to one of his friends. Diderot used his fictional approach, including a description of the Tahitians as noble savages, to criticise Western … [Click Below for Full Description]

Éditions originales.La Déclamation théâtrale est un poème didactique divisé en quatre chants : La Tragédie, La Comédie, L'Opéra et La Danse. Il fut publié anonymement en deux étapes : les trois premiers chants, précédés d'un Discours préliminaire, parurent en 1766 et le dernier en 1767 (avec une pagination continuant celle du premier ouvrage). Ce chant est précédé de Notions sur la danse ancienne et moderne et est suivi d'une Réponse à une lettre écrite de province au sujet du poëme de la Déclamation. Dès 1767, tous les chants ont été regroupés dans une nouvelle édition sous le seul titre de La Déclamation théâtrale.Le premier chant consacré à la tragédie est la version définitive du poème Essai sur la déclamation tragique publié anonymement en 1758 et en 1761 (édition, revue, corrigée et augmentée).L'œuvre de Dorat a souvent été décriée mais l'on a toujours apprécié La Déclamation théâtrale pour son analyse de l'art dramatique et de ses lois. Voltaire, qui n'aimait guère l'écrivain, a reconnu la valeur de ce texte.Exemplaire rassemblant en 1 volume les 2 éditions originales avec les illustrations en premier tirage de Charles Eisen, toutes gravées en taille-douce par de Ghendt : 1 titre-frontispice et 3 hors-texte pour … [Click Below for Full Description]

Col. Plates 45; cf. Wood p. 267 listing the French edition of 1749-1804: "This, the first and most complete work of the famous naturalist, was completed after more than 50 years toil, with the aid of other celebrated zoologists, L.J.M. Daubenton, P. Guéneau de Montbeillard, G.L.C.A. Bexon, and Count de Lacépède. The combined treatises discuss the whole range of the animal, vegetable and mineral kingdoms and form a veritable mine of information not only much utilized by subsequent investigators but separately published more or less in variant editions by the writers themselves". The number of plates does not correspond with Nissen's list (1122 plates), but most copies have different numbers of plates. - Plt 3 ( L´Hippotame) of vol. 12 is placed in vol. 15 (p. 120) together with one page additional text. Apart from the small defects an attractive complete set.

Housed in custom purple cloth solander boxes, dark red morocco labels. Hand-coloured engraved titles in English and French, 5 engraved dedication plates, 436 engraved plates (183 hand coloured, 73 double-page, 4 folding), engraved head- and tailpieces and initials (printed in colours in vol. IV); parallel text in English and French in vols. I and II, five dedications, "Avertissement" in vol. II, "Avant Propos" in vol. IV. Light abrasions and overall craquelure to sides, touch of marginal dust-marking in places, a very good set. First edition of this magnificent and notably rare work, of which only 100 complete sets were produced - 500 copies of vols. I and II, 100 copies of vols. III and IV. Although the two pairs of volumes are dated 1766 and 1767, in fact vol. I was delayed until the end of 1767 and vol. II was published in 1769. Hancarville's financial problems led him to forfeit the finished plates for the final volumes to Florentine creditors in 1773; Hamilton's intervention and additional funding led to those two volumes being published in 1776.

[Walpole, Horace]
London: Printed for William Bathoe, 1766. Third edition. 8vo. xxiv, 200p. Rebound in quarter calf with marbled paper sides, the spine in six panels with gilt title on a maroon label, dotted rules on the bands Just a few smudges to the text, else quite clean. A very nice copy "[Walpole] was a devotee of the Renaissance and medievalism and it was through this that he inspired a revival in gothic architecture and instigated the gothic novel. His novel The Castle of Otranto began a whole new movement in literature and captured and redirected the public taste. While it would be excessive to state that Walpole's novel was the sole perpetrator of the revolution, since there had been a rekindling of interest in historical fiction after decades of fascination for the oriental tale, Walpole's fiction rapidly became the figurehead of the movement and has remained so to this day." (St. James Guide to Horror, Ghost & Gothic Writers, p. 616). "Its influence on Poe is manifest, and it has survived in such novels and Bram Stoker's Dracula and in modern mystery stories and horror films." (PMM, 2nd ed., p. 126).

Provenance, previous owner's signature dated 1814 to title page and 19th century bookplate of the Lighton Baronetcy to front pastedown. This book came to us directly from the Lighton family and is offered for sale for the first time in around 150 years. First edition, first issue.The 'most celebrated of all the early books about butterflies and moths' (Salmon) This book has a complicated publishing history. It was probably initially published in fascicules in a slightly smaller format, as we see from the first two plates and their accompanying text leaves bound in here. There was also some confusion over the order of the text as the pagination is out of sequence and there are variations between different copies, although the text in this copy does run continually. All of the plates are in the first state, as shown by the dedication of plate XVII to Lady Carysfort and plate XXXV to Mr Thos. Greenough. The book eventually ran to four editions, but this is by far the rarest. Genuine first editions are very uncomm … [Click Below for Full Description]

Trew,Christoph Jakob.
Nuremberg, 1766. Copper-engraving and etching with original handcolouring (watercolours and gouache) on laid paper. Size: 35,0 x 22,8 cm (exc. marg.); 54,1 x 38,0 (inc. marg.). Condition: Impression and colours still very vibrant, small (but indiscernible / very vague spot) at the outer-rim of the plate-mark, very broad margins. * Highly decorative original print depicting three purple / white tulips with yellow cores. This print was published in Hortus Nittidissimus, one of the finest and decorative florilegia of the eighteenth century. The work was started by Johann michael Seligmann (1720-1762) and the engravings were based on the collection of flower drawings owned by the botanist and bibliophile Christoph Trew (1695-1769). Georg Ehret (1708-1770) produced the designs for 40 of the eventual total of 188 plates. The remainder were drawn up by a team of local artists, including J.C. Keller, Professor of Drawing at Erlangen University, the court painter Nikolaus Eisenberger, and A.L. Wirsing. # cf. Brunet V, 943; cf. Dunthorne 310; cf. Great Flower Books (1990) p. 144; cf.
