        Nieuwe ordonnantie doen maaken, en emaneren by burgemeesters en regeerders der stadt Vere. Op den visch-tol, afslag der visch, en wat verder daar toe zyn relatie is hebbende. [Middelburg], Suenonius Mandelgreen, [24 December 1746]. With: (2) Ordonnantie op den afslag der Verschen visch, binnen de stadt Vere, gelyk mede op den pligt van den keurmeester en den afslager.Middelburg, widow of Jakobus Pauwelsen, [6 July 1754, published 25 July]. (3) Ordonnantie op den afslag der Verschen visch, binnen de stad Vere.Vere, Chrristiaan Hendrik Held, [18 May 1771]. (4) [MANUSCRIPT]. Extract uit de notulen van weth[ouders] en raad der stad Vere.[Veere?], [18 July 1772-19 June 1773, 7 April 1787]. (5) Reglement voor die van de haven der stad Vere ter vis-vangst vaaren.Middelburg, Adriaan de Vin, [1 June 1774].With a woodcut Veere coat of arms on the title-page of each of the 4 printed ordinances (3 different blocks). 5 items in 1 volume. 4to. Contemporary marbled wrapper backed with plain paper.

      Cf. Het Utrechts Archief 53 (De Beaufort family archive), item 242 (similar printed ordinance of 1771); NCC & STCN (2 copies of a 1770 ordinance by the Stadholder); for fishing and the fish tade in Veere: Kees Leeman, De geschiedenis van de Veerse visserij 1250-1961, 2nd ed., 1997. Contemporary collection of 4 extremely rare printed ordinances and regulations concerning fishery and the fish trade at Veere, near Middelburg in Zeeland, none recorded in NCC or STCN, plus 7 manuscript extracts from minutes of the meetings of the Veere city council on the same subject. The city had been a leading fish market place since the Middle Ages, held a privilege for the inspection and taxation of fish caught in the region and authorized the auctioneers. To avoid taxes some people transported fish out of the city before it was sold. The first three ordinances attempted to reassert control over the fish trade, though the fact that the authorities found it necessary to issue new ordinances every few years suggests they were not very successful. Each ordinance refers to the previous one, showing that the Council issued none between these three. The fourth printed item gives guild regulations for fishermen using the city harbour, who are required to register their crew members, keep them orderly and make payments to the guild. The manuscript begins on the final integral blank of the 1771 ordinance. From differences in the handwriting it appears that these extracts of minutes were written over the years as the issues came up in the Council. Amusingly, the family name of the printer and publisher of the 1774 regulations is "De Vin" (The Fin). In very good condition. Spine faded and tattered. A remarkable contemporary collection of unique items concerning fishery and the fish trade in Veere.

        App. 17 - The Great Laurel

      London, third edition 1771 - Mark Catesby (1683-1749) Plate from The Natural History of Carolina, Florida, and the Bahama Islands London, 1731-44 (first edition); [1771, third edition] Hand-colored copperplate engraving Paper size: 20” x 14”; Framed: 24” x 20 1/2” In 1712, the English-born artist and naturalist Mark Catesby embarked on a series of expeditions to the southern colonies of British North America. Enthralled by the wildlife of the New World, he spent years traveling by foot through parts of present-day Virginia, Georgia, the Carolinas and the Bahamas. Over the course of his journeys, he encountered and documented uncountable varieties of animal and plant life that were entirely unknown to Europeans. His drawings and written observations were the raw material for an unprecedented project: a scientific account of previously uninvestigated wildlife, with illustrations taken from life. When Catesby returned to England from his final voyage to America in 1726, he was unable to afford the expense of having his drawings engraved professionally. Undeterred, he taught himself to etch with the assistance of Joseph Goupy, a French artist living in London, and went on to produce all but a few of the plates for his publication. He scrupulously monitored the coloring of the engravings, either painting the impressions himself or closely supervising the work to insure its fidelity to his preparatory studies. The result of Catesby’s tenacious effort was the most sweeping, complete and unique natural history study ever done. Widely considered a crowning achievement of 18th-century art and science, Catesby’s Natural History of Carolina, Florida and the Bahama Islands has lost none of its power to delight in the 250 years since its publication. This remarkable study of American plants, animals, and marine life provided an important model for later artists, including John James Audubon, who followed in Catesby’s footsteps a century later. The works illustrated here are among the masterpieces of Catesby’s Natural History. The artist’s charming, distinctive style is immediately apparent in these engravings, and Catesby’s enthusiasm for his subjects is palpable. Aside from their esthetic charm, however, Catesby’s illustrations were significant for other reasons. His pioneering attempts to describe and portray birds accurately, life-sized, and in botanical settings set him apart from his contemporaries and foreshadowed the work of Audubon and Alexander Wilson. He was the first to abandon the Indian names for his subjects, trying to establish scientific names based on generic relationships. Indeed, the great Linnaeus, working on his Systema Naturae at this time, used Catesby’s work as the basis of his system of binomial nomenclature for American species. For all these and many other reasons, these are magnificent prints both for their beauty and importance. The quality of the work was so far superior to foregoing accounts that many scholars rank Catesby as the first real naturalist in America.

        Les Traits de l'Histoire Universelle, Sacrée et Profane. D'apres les plus grands peintres, et les meilleurs écrivains. 4-vol. set (Complete)

      Le Bas, Paris 1771 - 12mo. [3], 130, 235, 85, 71 leafs. Decorative paper covered boards with Remarkable narrative of Sacred History, illustrated mostly by Le Maire, but also by Masquelier, du Clos, Gauché, and many others. Le Bas published this further edition in 1771 (the original edition was published between 1760 and 1762). These volumes consist of an unascribed bilingual text (Latin and French) to accompany plates illustrating Biblical scenes along with short interspersed series of scenes drawn from Homer and Virgil and a gallery of Muses by way of conclusion, with captions derived from Ausonius; the plates owe much to Goltzius, Diepenbeeck, and Le Temple des Muses, and anticipate some of Le Mire-Basan's "Métamorphoses Gravées" (Paris, 1770). Bindings rubbed along joints and edges. Corners bumped (not affecting pages throughout). Rear cover of second volume glued. In volume 1, the first leaf of Le Maire's dedication to the Duke of Burgundy is missing. Otherwise, this work is complete! Sporadic and very minor age toning throughout. Text in French and Latin. Bindings in overall fair, interior in good to very good condition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Vol. 2, plate 94 - Pigeon Plum

      London, third edition 1771 - Mark Catesby (1683-1749) Plate from The Natural History of Carolina, Florida, and the Bahama Islands London, 1731-44 (first edition), 1771 (third edition) Hand-colored copperplate engraving Paper size: 20” x 14”; Framed: 24” x 20 1/2” In 1712, the English-born artist and naturalist Mark Catesby embarked on a series of expeditions to the southern colonies of British North America. Enthralled by the wildlife of the New World, he spent years traveling by foot through parts of present-day Virginia, Georgia, the Carolinas and the Bahamas. Over the course of his journeys, he encountered and documented uncountable varieties of animal and plant life that were entirely unknown to Europeans. His drawings and written observations were the raw material for an unprecedented project: a scientific account of previously uninvestigated wildlife, with illustrations taken from life. When Catesby returned to England from his final voyage to America in 1726, he was unable to afford the expense of having his drawings engraved professionally. Undeterred, he taught himself to etch with the assistance of Joseph Goupy, a French artist living in London, and went on to produce all but a few of the plates for his publication. He scrupulously monitored the coloring of the engravings, either painting the impressions himself or closely supervising the work to insure its fidelity to his preparatory studies. The result of Catesby’s tenacious effort was the most sweeping, complete and unique natural history study ever done. Widely considered a crowning achievement of 18th-century art and science, Catesby’s Natural History of Carolina, Florida and the Bahama Islands has lost none of its power to delight in the 250 years since its publication. This remarkable study of American plants, animals, and marine life provided an important model for later artists, including John James Audubon, who followed in Catesby’s footsteps a century later. The works illustrated here are among the masterpieces of Catesby’s Natural History. The artist’s charming, distinctive style is immediately apparent in these engravings, and Catesby’s enthusiasm for his subjects is palpable. Aside from their esthetic charm, however, Catesby’s illustrations were significant for other reasons. His pioneering attempts to describe and portray birds accurately, life-sized, and in botanical settings set him apart from his contemporaries and foreshadowed the work of Audubon and Alexander Wilson. He was the first to abandon the Indian names for his subjects, trying to establish scientific names based on generic relationships. Indeed, the great Linnaeus, working on his Systema Naturae at this time, used Catesby’s work as the basis of his system of binomial nomenclature for American species. For all these and many other reasons, these are magnificent prints both for their beauty and importance. The quality of the work was so far superior to foregoing accounts that many scholars rank Catesby as the first real naturalist in America.

      Chr. Fr. Himburg, Berlin 1771 - 4to. [10], 243, [1], 240 pp. With 8 engraved vignettes by J.W. Meil. Bound in contemporary German paste-paper covered boards. Preserved in a brown cloth protective case (Cloverleaf Studio) First and Only Edition of this extremely early and important study of ANATOMICAL ILLUSTRATIONS, perhaps the first scholarly work on the subject, containing also a CATALOGUE OF PORTRAITS OF PHYSICIANS. Choulant and Frank ("History and Bibliography of Anatomic Illustration") praise the work: "Contains very valuable reports on artistic anatomy and the history of anatomic illustrations. Very accurate and conscientious research work is characteristic of this book, as of all Moehsen's works. The volume is most useful for its bibliographic references to physicians portraits. There is also an excellent essay on the relationship of medicine to artistic anatomy - possible the best written to date." (p. 351). The first part of the work contains a long theoretical essay on the relationship between medicine and art; the history of anatomic illustration; and the use of different artistic media, including woodcuts and metal engraving; the second part contains a "List of portraits of famous physicians, in copperplate as well as woodcuts and drawings," "Works in which different portraits of famous doctors have notes that are useful for the history of the arts and artists," "Alphabetical list of those artists and illustrators, as well as copper engravers" and more. Moehsen (1722-1795) was Frederick the Great's personal physicians and one of the most learned and enlightened men of his time, the author of a number of notable works on the history of medicine, for which see: "Johann Moehsen, Kurt Sprengel, and the Problem of Origins in Collective Memory" by Hans-Uwe Lammel (in: Locating Medical History: The Stories and Their Meanings, edited by Frank Huisman & John Harley Warner, JHU Press, 2006). Two issues of the work both appeared in 1771 (priority indeterminate), distinguished only by the publisher's name on the imprint. The present copy belongs to the issue with "Himburg" as the publisher; other copies bear the name of "Birnstiel." This copy does not contain the half-title that was apparently tipped-in to some copies immediately before Part 2 (the text reads "II. Catalogus iconum potissime clarissimorum medicorum, et oerum, qui artem medicam, excolverunt"). The physical collation of this copy is complete (there are no odd leaves or missing leaves in the gathering) and collates as per other recorded copies. Early ownership inscriptions and private collection stamp on front end-papers. § Garrison-Morton 6604.90; Blake p. 307; Petzholdt p. 273 "in sorgfältiger und fur ihre Zeit musterhafter Redaktion"; Dorn 239-244 (Birnstiel issue); Rumann 757. SELECTED CONTENTS: PART ONE: "Usefulness of this work for art lovers;" "Improvements and additions from this directory, also Gersaint's Catalogue of the works of Rembrandt, as well as on the history of the arts in general;" "Of effigies of great artists, as well as very famous copper engravers;" "Of the difference of those impressions, and how to know from where a plate was taken;" "Of the rarity of the portraits in this collection;" "Of the value of this inventory in the biography, scholarly arts, and news of its establishment;" "Of Anatomy;" "Of Michelangelo Buonarotti and Raphael;" "Of the merits of Vesalius and Titian relating to anatomy, along with a detailed description of the works of Vesalius;" "Of the anatomical works of the great Bidloo, which Gerhard Lairesse has manufactured;" "Of Bidloo's and Lairesse's copperplates;" "Of the large anatomical works by Mr. Albinus, with Wandelaar's drawings and copper engravings;" "Of Gautier [d'Agoty]'s anatomical characters with color prints;" "Some messages from the first use of color-printed woodcuts for anatomical characters; unequal by Le Blond, predecessor of the Gautier [d'Agoty family];" "Of Ladmiral's anatomical characters in a very clean color prints;" "The list o [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        AN ASTRONOMICAL DIARY: OR, ALMANACK FOR THE YEAR OF OUR LORD CHRIST, 1772

      [Boston. 1771].. [24]pp., including three metal-cut engravings, possibly by Revere. 12mo. Dbd. Lightly foxed. Very good. A variation of the original Russell edition (which had two engravings by Revere), this is one of several editions published in New England, though this one lacks any imprint information. NAIP notes that this edition, with its advertisement on the last page for Daniel Jones, is almost certainly the edition printed and advertised by Edes & Gill. The nature of the engravings in this almanac becomes more puzzling due to a charge in Paul Revere's Day Book which reads, "Messrs Edes & Gill Dr / To Engraving 3 plates for Ames Almanack / 2-14-0," on December 21, just five days after his entry for two engravings for Russell's Ames almanac. It is unclear, then, whether this almanac should be considered a pirated edition with imitations of Revere's engravings, or whether there is sufficient evidence to believe that these engravings are genuine Revere engravings, albeit copies of his original engravings. The engraving on the titlepage is of a dwarf, Miss Emma Leach, who had recently traveled to Boston. Of the two engravings in the interior, the first depicts political writer Jonathan Dickinson, under his pseudonym of "The Patriotic American Farmer." The second shows Mrs. Catherine Macaulay, a famous British intellectual and author, and correspondent of many of the leading Boston patriots. Macaulay's book on English liberties was an important source for Otis, Adams, Dickinson, and other American leaders. This almanac is also notable for including an essay on a beekeeping technique used in Greece. Nathaniel Ames Jr. continued writing this almanac series after his father died in 1764 and until the beginning of the Revolutionary War. He was a successful doctor, ardent Anti-Federalist, and local politician. DRAKE 3205. EVANS 11961. NAIP w022505. BRIGHAM, PAUL REVERE'S ENGRAVINGS, pp.135-36.

Edition originale de ce vaste programme de réformes élaboré au coeur de la machine administrative d'Ancien Régime par le très populaire intendant de Châlons. Actif, entreprenant, réformateur et ouvert aux idées nouvelles, Rouillé d'Orfeuil (1732-1791) laissa le souvenir d'une administration efficace et proche des populations. Il ne put s'empêcher de sacrifier à la mode des utopies politiques, et c'est ce qu'il entreprit dans cet ouvrage touffu où tout est abordé : l'éternel naufragé de ce genre de littérature aborde dans une île merveilleuse (le pays des Sérosages) où règne un gouvernement idéal que l'on se propose de donner en modèle à la France, déjà paralysée par ses archaïsmes. Et là, évidemment, tous les sujets sont abordés : population, luxe, commerce maritime, industrie, l'agriculture qui est la vraie richesse d'un royaume ; Rouillé d'Orfeuil veut interdire la loterie, les grandes propriétés, la prostitution, les collèges, etc. INED 3938.
