        Plano de las Yslas Malvinas cituadas en el mar del Sur

      1770 - Early manuscript chart of the Falklands. [c.1770]. Manuscript in ink and wash colour; watermark of “Konig & Son”, marginal restorations virtually not affecting, excellent condition overall. 730 mm x 530 mm. Stunning manuscript survey of the Falkland Islands coasts, one of the earliest known, of high artistic craftsmanship and historically important. The Falklands are an archipelago located c.400km off the coast of Argentina; it is composed of two larger islands (Isla de la Soledad and Gran Malvinas) and several smaller ones, both larger islands are well depicted on this chart. It is currently under British management, however its sovereignty has been disputed by Argentina since 1833, and has lead to armed conflict. The history of the islands goes back to the first decades of American exploration –with several claims of sighting, from John Davis in 1592 and Sir Richard Hawkins in 1594, however the first confirmed one being that of Sebald de Weert in 1600-, although uncharted and unsettled until the second half of the 18th century, when explorers Byron and Bougainville almost simultaneously claimed them for their respective countries. Bougainville’s settling ended up with the French leaving the islands after Spain’s claim; the British however, lead by John Byron, founded Port Edgmond [a.k.a. Santa Catalina, see Torres Lanzas, nº 86]. The Spanish later became aware of their presence, which again occasioned frictions between governments and raised the possibility of war. In 1833, the British reoccupied the islands permanently –with the exception of a short period in 1982. Drawn after a running performed by Joseph Antonio Puig in July 1770. Puig was the pilot aboard the San Francisco de Paula [a.k.a. La Catalana], a bergantin commanded by Manuel Pando. As a side note, it would be him as well who contributed to the mysterious Pepys island history, claiming to have sighted it and baptized it the Catalana. This voyage took Puig from Montevideo to the Falklands and back. The enterprise was seemingly on behalf of the Rl. Compa. de Comercio de Barcelona desde Buenos Ayres, the track marked on this chart in red. Torres Lanzas in his “” at the Archivo General de Indias, catalogues two similar maps, none of which are of this quality. On a map located at the Biblioteca Nacional de España, entitled “Plano de las Yslas Malvinas situadas en la latitude de 51 grados 28 minutos y en 316 grados 30 minutos”, ordered by Phelipe Ruiz Puente, we see a much primitive rendering of the islands, which are charted rudimentarily, although the cartouche explains they contain the last explorations done by land and sea. It is catalogued as c.1769 and reflects the Spanish expeditions done between 1768 and 1769 to locate the English settlement of Port Edgmont. The map is beautifully made and cartographically accurate, it features a numbered key to the straits, bays, adjacent islands and other points of interest. Iconographically an interesting map, the artist decorated it with two drawings opposing themselves, the first being the portrait of a lady holding a scale and the second a settler seating by a fire heating coffee or some beverage, background with a seal, whales and a turtle. The centre of the map features the Spanish Lion in threatening posture. Two cartouches at the upper right and left corners feature coastal profiles. Provenance, there is an unidentified wax seal on the map, title and number on verso. Torres Lanzas, Relacion descriptiva de los mapas, planos, etc. del Virreinato de Buenos Aires, 1921, nº 69, 82, 86, 89.

        Uso y abuso del vino, necesidad y utilidad de la agua. Por el doctor. Academico de la Real y Pontificia Universidad de Cervera

      Gerona, por Miguel Brò 1770 - 8º (14,3 x 10,2 cm.) 4 h. inc. port., 200 p. Pergamino de época, rotulación en lomo. EL CCPB tan solo registra tres ejemplares, ninguno de ellos en la BNE. Portada y tres primeras hojas algo sucias, con pequeños deterioros marginales sin afectar texto. La tabla del contenido muestra la división en en ocho capítulos, que abordan el origen del vino, su uso, su uso aprobado, uso reformado, uso prohibido, abuso y por último sobre la necesidad y utilidad del agua. “Gerónimo de Vardier, doctor i acadèmic de la Real i Pontifícia Universitat de Cervera, fa en aquest llibre una defensa de l’aigua enfront del vi, des d’un punt de vista mèdic i moral. Divideix el llibre en 7 capítols: origen del vi, ús del vi, ús aprovat del vi, ús del vi reformat, ús prohibit del vi, abús del vi, i necessitat i utilitat de l’aigua. Afirma, per exemple, que només Noè va ser l’inventor del vi. També diu que “el vino mueve la embriaguez en las funciones de los espiritus, y acciones animales; en el mismo tiempo, que mueve, corrobora, aníma con elegancia de burlas, juegos, canciones, danzas: hace renacer despues, los males escondidos à qualquier sujeto, sacando al publico, lo que estaba encubierto; mas, turba, debilita, y quita los sentidos interiores, y exteriores, como tambien, los movimientos voluntarios; de manera, que ni los pies, las manos, la lengua, ni el entendimiento hagan su oficio”. I és per això que el vi s’ha de barrejar amb aigua. Per últim, de l’aigua diu que és “por conclusion, la bebida de todas las Plantas animales, y minerales: sta es, el Vino catholico, para su conservacion, y aumeno”. [Vinseum.

        Prospect bey der Sultan Solimans und Mahomets Mosche zu Constantinopel.

      Augsburg, Probst, um 1770.. Altkolorierter Kupferstich (Guckkasten), Bildausschnitt 27,5 x 41 cm, Blattgr. 34,5 x 49 cm.. Sixt von Kapff K 305: "Mit der Moschee des Sultan Soliman muss die Süleyman-Moschee gemeint sein, die für Sultan Süleyman den Prächtigen Mitte des 16. Jahrhunderts erbaut wurde und eine der schönsten von Konstantinopel ist. Und mit Sultan Mahomet ist der Sultan Mahomet II. bew. Mehmet II. gemeint, der 1453 Konstantinopel erobert hatte und deshalb den Beinamen Fatih ('der Eroberer') führte. Für ihn wurde die Fattih-Moschee erbaut, um die es sich hier handeln muß. Beide Moscheen - es müssen die großen Gebäude auf der linken Seite der Straße sein - sehen in Wirklichkeit ganz anders aus, es sind also nur Phantasiedarstellungen"; schmalrandig mit geringen Randläsuren, sonst von guter Erhaltung.

        Quintus Horatius Flaccus

      Typis Johannis Baskerville (John Baskerville) 1770 - - Typis Johannis Baskerville (John Baskerville), Birminghamiae (Birmingham) 1770, in-4 (22x29cm), (1p. tit) 344pp., relié. - Edition illustrée d'un frontispice gravé par Henriquez (avec un bel encadrement), d'une vignette de titre gravée par Le Grand ainsi que de quatre figures de Gravelot, gravées par Lainé, Leveau, Le Vasseur et Godfroy ; édition non répertoriée par Cohen, mais parue en 1762 au format in-12, et réimposée in-4. Reliure de l'époque en plein maroquin rouge, dos à cinq nerfs richement orné de fleurons et filets dorés, pièce de titre de maroquin havane, triple filet doré en encadrement des plats, double filet doré sur les coupes, dentelle dorée en encadrement des contreplats, toutes tranches dorées. Ex-libris sous forme d'acrostiche sur le verso de la première garde. Quelques très infimes frottements sur la reliure et quelques rousseurs sur les tranches, notamment sur les figures, à l'instar des autres exemplaires, sinon très bel ouvrage, relié dans un maroquin de grande qualité. Au XVIIIe, les éditions de Baskerville, visant une clientèle de luxe, firent sensation par l'utilisation nouvelle du Velin selon le procédé de Wathman. Baskerville mis en place une presse spéciale pour des caractères plus fins et plus nets (caractères inspirés du Romain du Roi de Grandjean) dédiés à ce papier qui sera promis à un fort bel avenir au XIXe. Le résultat typographique, notamment par l'emploi de nouvelles encres, est tout à fait exceptionnel à l'époque et évoque des réalisations pluys tardives de Didot. Cette édition d'Horace est une des dernières réalisations de Baskerville et la première au format in quarto. Curieusement, le caractère Baskerville tombera rapidement en désuétude et sera redécouvert et utilisé plus tard, mais il fut dès la mort de Baskerville emporté aux USA, c'est pourquoi on le retrouve dans la Déclaration d'indépendance. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Edition illustrated with a frontispiece engraved by Henriquez, a title label engraved by Le Grand and four figures Plover, engraved by Laine, Leveau, Le Vasseur and Godfrey; absent Cohen. Contemporary binding in full red morocco, back with five nerves richly decorated with gilded finials and nets, as part of Havana morocco, triple net gilded framing dishes, double net gilded on the cuts, golden lace coaching contreplats All edges gilt. Bookplates in the form of an acrostic on the back of the first guard. Some very tiny friction on bookbinding and some spots on the edges like the other best, if not beautiful book.

        Regno gesuitico del Paraguay dimostrato co' documenti piu classici de' medesimi padri della compagnia, i quali confessano, e mostrano ad evidenza la regia sovranità del r.p. generale con independenza, e con odio verso la Spagna. Anno 1760

      In Lisbona: Nella Stamperia Reale 4to (20.5 cm; 8"). xix, [1], 167, [1] pp.. 1770 Translation of "Parte primera: El reyno jesuitico del Paraguay," originally published in vol. IV of the Coleccion general de documentos (Madrid: Imprenta real de la Gaceta, 1768–70). It is a vitriolic anti-Jesuit diatribe by a man who had been expelled from the Society of Jesus, not once, but twice! A definite "other side of the coin" from Father Lozano's account of the Jesuits in Paraguay, and originally written in Spanish, Ibanez's work proved popular and by 1774 had appeared in German, French, and this Italian translation. Of course, at that time the Jesuits were hot news, having been expelled in 1767 from the Spanish empire and made to find refuge in Italy and elsewhere. Some copies have a frontispiece but not this one. Of the nine copies we trace to U.S. libraries, we know that at least two lack the frontispiece, but others may also. We have checked the OPAC records for the other seven but because all seven are clearly copy cataloguing we have to wonder about their accuracy. Binding: 20th-century half dark green crushed morocco with marbled paper sides in a swirl pattern and top edge gilt, signed "Alfred Farez" who was active 1909 to ca. 1930. Unidentified owner's gilt monogram at base of spine. Binding signed "Alfred Farez" who was active 1909 to ca. 1930. Bound as above with old "wall paper" wrappers bound in. Title-page with a very little light soiling and one other leaf with a single spot likewise light; text notably clean and with good margins. A very good copy.

        The Mathematical Principles of Geography. Together with: Dialling, or the Art of drawing Dials on all sorts of Planes whatsoever

      London: Printed by J. Nourse, 1770., 1770. First Edition. 2 titles bound in 1 in contempoprary full calf with gilt underlined raised bands and red title label to spine, speckled edges. Complete with 22 folding plates, 4 to the first work and 18 to the second. Rubbed to extremities, joints starting, corners worn. Lacking flyleaf. Charles Pinney bookplate to paste down. Internally clean and sound. A superb copy of this uncommon book, printed the year Cook landed in Australia. The first work is in 3 parts and contains: I. An Account of the various Properties and Affections of the Earth and Sea; with a Description of the several Parts thereof. And a Table of the Latitude and Longitude of Places. II. The Use of the Artificial or Terrestrial Globe, in solving Problems. III. The Principles of Spherical and Spheroidical Sailing; with the Solution of the Several Cases in Numbers, by the Common tables, according to the Sheroidical Figure of the Earth. The second work is also in 3 parts, being: I. The fundamental Principles of Dialling. II. The Practice of Dialling, illustrated on all kinds of Planes. III. Of describing the common Furniture of Dials; and the Construction of some useful Dials of other kind. William Emerson (14 May 1701 - 20 May 1782), English mathematician, was born at Hurworth, near Darlington, where his father, Dudley Emerson, also a mathematician, taught a school. Unsuccessful as a teacher, he devoted himself entirely to studious retirement, and published many works which are singularly free from errata. In mechanics he never advanced a proposition which he had not previously tested in practice, nor published an invention without first proving its effects by a model. He was skilled in the science of music, the theory of sounds, and the ancient and modern scales; but he never attained any excellence as a performer. He died on 20 May 1782 at his native village.

Oeser (1717-1799) in Leipzig und entwickelte sich zu einem der fruchtbarsten graphischen Künstler seiner Zeit. Seit Ende der 1760er Jahre handhabte er die Radierung, die bald seine Spezialität wurde, bereits mit solchem Erfolg, daß er, nachdem er 1766 eine Lehrstelle für den Kupferstich an der Leipziger Kunstakademie erhalten hatte, 1770 diese Position aufgab, um sich ganz der unabhängigen künstlerischen Tätigkeit zu widmen. Im Jahre 1771 wurde er zum "ordentlichen Mitglied" der Leipziger Akademie ernannt. Von seinen Zeitgenossen wurde er besonders wegen der weichen Zartheit seiner Technik geschätzt.

White's range of titles is indicated in his advertisement at the end of J. Ellis and D. C. Solander's Natural History of the Zoophytes (1786), which he published. They included Mark Catesby's Natural History of Carolina in two volumes, which perhaps inspired Audubon" (DNB).White's engraved bookplate of South Lambeth is affixed to the front pastedown; along with that of his son JOHN WHITE, who assisted Gilbert in the preparation his journals for publication and contributed a Memoir of his famous uncle for the 1802 edition.

        MELANGES DE LITTERATURE, D'HISTOIRE, ET DE PHILOSOPHIE

      Amsterdam: Zacharie Chatelain & Fils, 1770. full calf with raised bands and stained edges. 12mo. full calf with raised bands and stained edges. (iv), xvi, 412 plus 1 fold out chart; (iv), 456; (iv),472; xxiv, 472; (iv), 464 pages. 5 volumes. Reprint of the 1759 edition with a few corrections, but otherwise unchanged. French philospher and mathematician Jean le Rond d'Alembert (1717--1783) studied a number of fields--law, medicine, and the sciences, including planetary astronomy. These five volumes generated a fair share of controversy when they were published. Topics cover a diverse range of studies related to literature, history, philosophy and mathematics. Volume one contains mostly introductory material with a section explaining the layout and purpose of each section for all of the volumes. The series of essays begins with observations on the division of the sciences, according to the Chancellor Bacon, and includes an extensive fold out chart that delineates a schematic of the divisions and subdivisions of the sciences to illustrate the connections of different branches of study. The second volume contains essays on seventeenth- and eighteenth-century scholars and academics, such as Jean Bernoulli (a mathematics professor in Basel), Abbé Terrasson (a philosophy scholar), the Abbé Mallet (a professor of theology) and M. du Marsais (an advocat in Paris). This volume includes essays on Queen Christine of Sweden and M. d'Alembert of the French Academy. Volume three begins with observations on the art of translation in general and is followed by a number of excerpts from Tacitus in both Latin and French translation. These passages showed off his own consummate skill in translation. The fourth volume has more general essays on elements and principles of humanistic studies, philosophy, religion and music. Volume five clarifies different positions within philosophical studies, questions on the calculation of probability, and reflections on poetry and history. Title pages printed in red and black. Decorative initial letters. Head and tail pieces. Ink signature on all title pages. The first chapter page with signature and stamp, Rouen, 1797. Ex-library copy with markings. Bookseller's label in first volume, Librairie Raymond Clavreuil, Paris. Some spines cracked. Most of the hinges split. Edges and corners of covers rubbed. Some foxing through a few volumes.
