        Collection of five views of Russian and Siberian Cities].

      Imp. Akad. Nauk Skt. Peterburg -1771 1769 - Five views on four sheets, including Vue de la ville de Kokchajsk du côté de la Wolga (34 x 43 cm; sheet 49 x 59 cm); Vue de la ville de Sinbirsk au nord-est (35 x 45 cm; sheet 48.5 x 60 cm); Vue de la ville de Mangasei, Vue de la ville de Kousneszk (two views on one plate 49 x 36 cm; sheet 59.5 x 48.5 cm); Vue de la ville de Pénze sur la Soura du côté du nord-est (19.5 x 45 cm; sheet 24.5 x 59.5 cm), with captions in Russian and French, printed on Dutch handmade paper watermarked C & I Honig IV; central fold, scratches to surface and spotting to Vue de la ville de Kousneszk. A collection of the earliest views of the Russian cities on the Volga river and in Siberia engraved by Russian masters. These views are part of the series that included in total 34 prints. Their publication spanned almost forty years from the creation of the first drawings until the issue of the prints, and involved in the process seven artists and twelve Russian engravers. The cities perspectives were drawn on the spot between 1733 and 1766 during two great expeditions; the originals were later corrected and re-worked from 1748 to 1768 before being printed at the Academy from 1769 to 1771. The view of Mangazey offered here and of other Siberian cities from this series are based on the drawings made during the Great Northern Expedition (1733–1743) sent on the order of the Empress Anna Ioanovna. Under the leadership of Vitus Bering the expedition had to map the eastern reaches of Siberia, and if possible to continue onto the western shores of North America to explore and map them as well. The views of towns encountered on the way, including Novgorod, Tver, Kazan, Tobolsk and Yakutsk were drawn by the expedition artists J.C. Berckhan and J.W. Lursenius, who completed twenty eight cities prospects. The delays in passing the drawings to the Engraving Chamber and disruptions in the engraving process meant the engraving plates were not finished until 1771. The twelve views of the cities in the European part of Russia, including Kokshaysk, Sinbirsk, Kuznetsk and Penza offered here, are based on the original drawings by Alexandr Ivanovich Svechin (end of 1720s – 1796). The colonel and artist headed the expedition to the Volga region in 1765 organised on the order of Catherine the Great to investigate oak forests in the Kazan province and potential of timber supply for the construction of Russia's naval fleet. With the help of a 'camera obscura' Svechin produced during this trip twenty-eight drawings, including fourteen views of the cities on the Volga river which Makhaev had to review following Catherine II's wish. The result of Makhaev's efforts was twelve amended versions of the cities prospects in which the artist corrected perspective inaccuracies and unified the composition. In December 1768 the drawings were finally sent to the Engraving Chamber of the Academy of Sciences. The engraved plates were sold individually and are exceptionally rare. We were able to trace only two copies comprising all 34 views, both in Russia – in the collections of the State Hermitage Museum and the State Russian Museum, St. Petersburg. Outside Russia the collection of these views was found only in the Eton library, where the copy, in a modern binding, is lacking one plate. ????????? ? ? «???????? ?????????? ? ????????? ???????». ????? ??????

        Partially printed Bill of Lading of the Royal Charlottes of cargo, Signed by Silvanus Jencks

      Mississippi, 1769. Old folds. THE CARGO THAT FED A SPANISH ARMY. Reading in part: "Shipped by the grace of God… in and upon the good Ship, called the Royall Charlotte whereof is Master under God for this recent voyage Silvanus Jencks and now riding at anchor in the Road to St. Eustasius and by Gods grace bound for Mississippy to lay Five hundred ninety Barrels of Flower, Thirty T---- of ships Bread, Twenty T---- of Rice, Twenty kegs of white Bread, five Hhds of Rum, fourpipes & fifty kegs of Brandy, four Hhds Claret, two puncheons of beer & two puncheons of Cyder in bottles, five cases of Frontignan Wine, five Casks hams & Twenty four Negroe Slaves…and are to be delivered… at the aforesaid, Port of Missisipi (the danger of the seas onely excepted) unto Mr. Oliver Pollock…" The Royal Charlotte is believed to be one of the 30 merchant vessels owned by Aaron Lopez (1731-1782), a Sephardic Jew born in Lisbon, Portugal, who came to Newport Rhode Island in 1752. Lopez quickly became a leading merchant in Newport and would go on to become its wealthiest citizen. Among his diverse business interests, he is credited with underwriting at least 21 slave ships between 1761 and 1774. The ship's captain chartered for the voyage from the free Dutch port of St. Eustatius to the Spanish port in New Orleans was Silvanus Jenckes (1746-1781), a Providence, Rhode Island ship's master who, In 1772, married Freelove Whipple Fenner, a young woman from a political family remembered in Rhode Island history for her beauty and her participation in the "Daughters of Liberty." Jenckes, like most seafaring New Englanders, would go on to become a privateer during the American Revolution but neither he nor his wife would live to see the end of the war. As a charter party, the goods on board the Royal Charlotte did not belong to the ship's owner but rather the "charter party," in this case, Mr. Oliver Pollock. Oliver Pollock (1737-1823) was born in County Tyrone, Ireland and arrived in 1760, settling in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania. Within two years he established himself as a merchant, trading mainly with the Spanish in the West Indies. He set up his headquarters in Havana, Cuba, where he became friends with the island's Governor General, Alejandro O'Reilly. Irish-born O'Reilly was one of the fabled "Wild Geese," soldiers who left Ireland to serve in the European armies of the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries. In April, 1769 O'Reilly was ordered to New Orleans to quell an uprising of Creole and German inhabitants who had deposed the Spanish Governor in response to government trade restrictions. O'Reilly arrived in August, with 2,000 troops and quickly restored order but soon realized he would have difficulties feeding and supplying his troops. Then, "To O'Reilly's great fortune, his old friend Oliver Pollock arrived at the port of New Orleans just in time on a ship with the very British name Royal Charlotte. O'Reilly was delighted to learn that the ship was full of flour…" (Independence Lost: Lives on the Edge of the American Revolution, DuVal, Kathleen. Random House Publishing Group, 2016). Instead of selling his flour at inflated market prices, Pollock sold them to O'Reilly at pre-rebellion cost. As a reward, Pollock was granted free trade privileges in Louisiana and relocated his headquarters to New Orleans, where he soon became one of its most successful businessmen. Pollock would later use his fortune to finance western operations of the Continental Army during the American Revolution. Given the timing and the items listed on this bill of lading, it is likely that this is the cargo of flour and goods that saved Alejandro O'Reilly and fed his army.

        Als die Dinge heilig waren: Gelebte Frömmigkeit im Zeitalter des Barock [Gebundene Ausgabe] Christoph Kürzeder (Autor) Religion Theologie Christentum Barock GeistesGeschichte Kultur-Geschichte Frömmi

      Welche Dinge waren den Menschen im Barock heilig? Warum trugen sie Nachbildungen einer menschlichen Zunge als Amulett um den Hals? Warum versteckten sie im Ehebett geweihte Palmkätzchen? Diese und weitere Fragen zur materiellen Kultur des katholischen Sakramentalienwesens beantwortet dieser Band und entschlüsselt anhand der Vielfalt ""heiliger"" Dinge das subtile Wechselverhältnis zwischen gelehrter Theologie und gelebter Frömmigkeit im Barock. Autor: Dr. Christoph Kürzeder promovierte mit der vorliegenden Arbeit im Fach Pastoraltheologie an der Katholisch-Theologischen Fakultät der Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München. Als Sammler religiöser Volkskunst bin ich auf dieses Buch gestoßen. Selbst für mich als Nichtwissenschaftler ist dieses Werk verständlich, d.h. in einer gut lesbaren Sprache geschrieben. Der umfangreiche Bildteil hilft mir als Sammler, viele meiner Objekte besser zu verstehen, bzw. die hierfür verwendeten Materialien zu bestimmen. Es ist (soweit ich das beurteilen kann) das umfassendste Buch zu diesem Thema. Absolut empfehlenswert für alle, die tiefer in die Materie einsteigen möchten. Zusatzinfo 174 farb. Abb.

Sobria y elegante encuadernación en plena piel de época (Pasta española). Obra de ocho tomos publicada entre 1726 y 1739, donde se recoge el pensamiento del monje Benito Jerónimo Feijoo y Montenegro. Para el titulo, el autor se sirve de una antigua acepción del término teatro, entendido como panorama o visión general de conjunto. Como bien dice el subtitulo de la publicación ¿Discursos varios en todo género de materias, para desengaño de errores comunes¿, se trata de una obra en la que el monje escribía y reflexionaba sobre temáticas muy diferentes. Así tenían cabida desde cuestiones amorosas, científicos, religiosos, hechos cotidianos, guerras, grandes pensadores o artes mágicas entre otros muchos. Y todo ello con la voluntad de dar una visión general de estos aspectos a las gentes comunes. Es difícil encontrar esta obra en comercio y, sobre todo, que los tomos del Theatro correspondan a la misma tirada. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Nouvelles recherches sur les découvertes microscopiques, et la génération des corps organisés. Ouvrage traduit de l'Italien de M. l'Abbé Spallanzani par M. de Needham.

      Londres & Paris, Lacombe, 1769. - Londres & Paris, Lacombe, 1769 ; 1 vol. pet. in-8 (19 x 12.5 cm), (2), ii, LIV, (2), 298 pp., 7 planches dépliantes h.t. et (4), XVI, 293, (1) pp., 2 planches dépl. h.t. ; pleine basane de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné, reliure frottée avec épidermures, petit manque en tête du dos, coins émoussés, tranches marbrées, quelques rousseurs pâles, déchirure restaurée à la première planche avec petit manque marginal ; assez bon exemplaire. Première édition de la traduction française du premier ouvrage scientifique de Spallanzani, l'un des plus importants, faisant date dans l'histoire de la microbiologie. Il n'y eut pas de traduction ancienne en anglais. Cet ouvrage fut rédigé après plusieurs années d'expériences minutieuses. Spallanzani y réfute les conceptions de Buffon et de Needham sur la génération spontanée. Il répéta avec plus de rigueur les expériences de Needham, prêtre lui-aussi, qui utilisait des flacons bouchés avec du liège (très poreux). Il montre que les infusions introduites dans des fioles, dont les cols avaient été scellés à la lampe et plongés dans l'eau bouillante pendant 1 heure, ne renferment plus de formes vivantes décelables au microscope. Spallanzani arrive à distinguer les plus gros animalcules (protozoaires) détruits après une minute d'ébullition, des plus petits (bactéries), qui résistent à plus d'une demi-heure d'ébullition. Ces expériences sont remarquables pour l'époque, ayant abouti à des conclusions à bien des égards prophétiques. Elles ont tracé la voie à Appert puis à Pasteur. Le tome second est entièrement de Needham (qui était entré en relation épistolaire avec Spallanzani). Il a un titre propre : "Nouvelles Recherches physiques et métaphysiques sur la nature et la religion, avec une nouvelle théorie de la terre, et une mesure de la hauteur des Alpes" par M. de Needham. L'abbé Lazzaro Spallanzani (1729-1799) entra dans le clergé après avoir fait des études de droit, de lettres et surtout de sciences. Il fut nommé directeur du Muséum d'histoire naturelle, puis professeur à l'université de Pavie. Expérimentateur ingénieux, il est considéré comme l'un des plus grands physiologistes de son époque et comme un pionnier de la physiologie expérimentale.

        Supplement a la Bibliographie Instructive, ou Catalogue des Livres du Cabinet de feu M. Louis Jean Gaignat

      Paris: Francois De Bure le Jeune, 1769. Very good antiquarian condition. 2 vols., 8vo. xxxix, [1], 621, [1]; 491, [1] pp. 3542 lots described, all priced by a contemporary hand with the exception of the last 23. Contemporary French calf (refurbished), five raised bands on spines, red and olive lettering pieces, red edges, marbled pastedowns and endpapers. Old papers label on spine of Vol. I, later ink stamp on first blanks of both vols. "Handbibliothek unverkauflich" and with pencilled note "doubl." (i.e. duplicate). Sale catalogue of the library of L.-J. Gaignat (1697-1768), the immensely rich Receveur-general de la Chambre de Requetes and Secretary to Louis XV. Gaignat he devoted the greater part of his fortune to the acquisition of works of art and books, perhaps to console himself for the untimely death of his second wife and only daughter. Doubtless he was one of the greatest bibliophiles of eighteenth-century France. Charles Isaac Elton, in "The Great Book Collectors," wrote "When Gaignat died in 1768 his collection was regarded as perfect; it was said that 'no one in the commonwealth of letters had ever brought together such a rich and admirable assembly.'" This was no exaggeration: Gaignat's treasures are legendary, and included fabulous illuminated manuscripts, early printed books (for instance lot 16, a copy of the 42-line "Gutenberg" Bible), an alarming number of books printed on vellum, choice bindings, and so forth. The catalogue was written by the preeminent bookseller of the 18th-century, G.-F. De Bure, who was Gaignat's principal agent. The present catalogue forms a sort of monument to both men. The present Catalogue was issued as vols. VIII and IX of De Bure's 10-volume "Bibliographie Instructive," and provides important corrections to it. The significance of certain lots is related by De Bure in extraordinary detail, for instance the description of lot 2638 extends some 14-pages. The volume in question was the "Voyages & Avantures de Charles Magius," printed on vellum and exquisitely illuminated (now in BnF). It was purchased by the Duc de la Valliere who, according to Brunet, was the principal buyer at the sale and is believed to have spent somewhere between 80,000 and 90,000 livres (NB: the entire sale realize 227,597 livres). Brunet also notes that the finest incunabula in the sale came from the Gros de Boze collection (his sale, Paris, 1753). Vol. II contains a 245-page index which is a model of its kind. Our copy is priced in a contemporary hand. Brunet, Dictionnaire de bibliologie catholique, cols. 461-462. Emile Dacier, Un bibliophile du XVIIIe siecle, L.-J.

Thomas Goulard (1697 – 1784) was a French surgeon famous for Goulard's extract, a solution of lead(II) acetate and lead(II) oxide which was formerly used as an astringent. Goulard was a surgeon and anatomist in Montpellier who specialized in genitourinary disorders. His best known written work is titled Oeuvres de Chirurgie.

        The Ladies New Dispensatory & Family Physician bound together with Medulla Medicinae Universae or a New Compendious Dispensatory for the use of the Military Hospital Abroad

      Johnson & Payne, London 1769 - The Ladies New Dispensatory & Family Physician: printed for Johnson and Payne at No 8, in Paternoster-Row, London, 1769. This work has been contemporaneously bound together with Medulla Medicinae Universae or a New Compendious Dispensatory: compiled at the command of The late Duke of Cumberland, for the use of the Military Hospital Abroad to which is added An English Translation with a Comment subjoined to each Prescription, by John Theobald, M.D. This latter work being the seventh edition with a Large Additional Appendix and Directions annexed concerning Bleeding. The Medulla Medicinae Universae is undated but we believe it was first published around 1747 giving this, the seventh edition, a likely date in the 1750s. Book condition: very good. Bound in calf boards with an attractive grain. Some bumping to the corners and a little rubbing to the edgesThe spine has been split but this has now been professionally restored and the original spine label retained. The Ladies New Dispenatory would have originally had four pages of publisher's advertisments at the end - these have been removed - presumably at the time the two works were bound together. Internally, the volume is very clean and has only a rare occurrence of light spotting. Very slight tanning to title page which has a vignette of classical design. The Ladies New Dispensatory contains 'directions for treating the disorders of the human body in general. The disorders peculiar to women. The disorders of children. With the most simple and efficacious recipes for the cure of them.' At the end of the work there is an alphabetical index of diseases. The Medulla Medicinae Universae contains the Catalogus Remediorum followed by a translation of same. There follows an index of diseases with their respective cures, an index of remedies and a lengthy appendix with details of how to prepare various curatives and electuaries etc. This is a most fascinating compendium of pharmacological approaches in the 18th century - not least the use of ground eyes of crabs to cure heartburn.
