        Bull Frog with Lady’s Slipper

      London 1771 - We are pleased to offer this folio engraving from Mark Catesby’s The Natural History of Carolina, Florida and the Bahama Islands: Containing the Figures of Birds, Beasts, Fishes, Serpents, Insects, and Plants . Together with their Descriptions in English and French. This third edition of the work was printed on fine woven paper for Benjamin White in London in 1771. The woven paper was ideal for the printing of the engraved plates as the smooth surface takes an impression much more correctly than the earlier paper, where the chain lines produce slight corrugations in the paper surface. The original hand-coloring for each engraving is superb.Mark Catesby's Natural History of Carolina, Florida and the Bahama Islands was the first natural history of American flora and fauna. It is noted as 'THE MOST FAMOUS COLOR-PLATE BOOK OF AMERICAN PLANT AND ANIMAL LIFE . It is a delightful and amusing book [and] a fundamental and original work for the study of American species' (Hunt). 'Mark Catesby made a valuable and important contribution to ornithological illustration. He was confident enough to break new ground - to portray his birds more naturally than before, with foliage backgrounds, and to adopt the folio format. He depicted the natural history of one area in its entirety, and often drew from living models . AS HIS WAS THE EARLIEST PUBLISHED NATURAL HISTORY OF A PART OF THE NEW WORLD, HE HAS BEEN CALLED THE FATHER OF AMERICAN ORNITHOLOGY' (Jackson).Mark Catesby was the first American naturalist and illustrator. Though born in England in 1682, Catesby spent several years of his life in the colonies studying the natural flora and fauna. He was so fascinated he produced the first color plate, natural history work on American flora and fauna.One of the signatures of Catesby’s work is that it incorporates plant and animal life on the same page. Combining the flora and fauna was to save time and money but also began a new style of print composition. He set out to illustrate all the plants, birds, fish, and reptiles in America. His dedication and work greatly contributed to the natural sciences of the 18th century.Natural History was almost entirely completed by Mark Catesby. He did his own field research and sketches. Engravers could not be afforded to get the work to print, so Catesby studied under Joseph Goupy where he learned how to etch the plates himself. The result of his labors is the wonderfully detailed and informative work which gave a glimpse of the world beyond.Catesby's work was also the first to abandon the Indian names for his subjects, trying to establish scientific names based on generic relationships. Linnaeus used Catesby's work as the basis for his system of binomial nomenclature for the American species. --- The work is in excellent condition overall. There may be a few minor imperfections to be expected with age, but overall very clean. Please review the image carefully for condition and contact us with any questions.

        A Journal of a Voyage round the World in His Majesty's Ship Endeavour in the Years 1768, 1769, 1770, and 1771; Undertaken in Pursuit of Natural Knowledge, at the Desire of the Royal Society: containing All the various Occurrences of the Voyage, with Descriptions of Several new Discoveries Countries in the Southern Hemisphere; and Accounts of their Soil and Productions; and of many Singularities in the Structure, Apparel, Customs, Manners, Policy, Manufactures, etc. of their Inhabitants. To which is added a Concise Vocabulary of the Language of Otahitee.

      London: T. Becket and P.A. de Hondt 1771 - First edition, first issue. 4to. Contemporary calf, rolled edge to boards, extremities very lightly rubbed, with later armorial label of Viscount Courtenay to upper board, this chipped. [ii], ii, 130, [3], [1](blank)pp. First edition, the rare first issue, of the first published account of Cook's first circumnavigation, published two months after the return of the Endeavour, and preceding Hawkesworth's offical account by two years. With the dedication leaf, which was suppressed days after publication at the request of the dedicatees Sir Joseph Banks and Daniel Solander, who issued a statement denying any knowledge of the book: "The leaf bearing this unauthorised dedication was removed from most copies. Those that still retain this leaf are now very rare and much prized" (Thompson The People's Treasures: Collections in the National Library of Australia, p17). 'This was the first in a series of so-called "surreptitious accounts" of Cook's various voyages to appear in print: the Admiralty found it practically impossible to enforce their ruling that no unofficial publications should pre-empt the official and lengthier accounts of the voyages, naturally much slower in the press' (Parks). It is noted for containing the first printed account of the east coast of Australia, with Botany Bay named Sting-ray Bay, the first name given to it by Cook. Authorship has variously been attributed to Banks or Hawkesworth (working from the journals of Sydney Parkinson), Richard Orton, William Perry, the publisher Thomas Becket, and even to Cook himself; Arnold Wood, in his Discovery of Australia (1922), was the first to suggest that the author was American midshipman James Magra (later Matra) — later a leading proponent of establishing a convict colony at Botany Bay — an attribution supported by the editor of Cook's journals, James Beaglehole, and now widely accepted. If Magra was the author he neglects to describe how 'in May 1770, when midway up the coast of New South Wales, suspecting that [he] was implicated in the drunken cropping of his clerk's ears, Cook suspended the midshipman from duty, noting that he was "one of those gentlemen, frequently found on board Kings Ships, that can very well be spared, or to speake more planer good for nothing"' (ADB). It has also been noted that 'on the evidence of a letter from himself to Banks, Magra was one of the ringleaders of an intended mutiny when the Endeavour was at Tahiti, which was rendered abortive only by the prevalence of venereal disease' (Holmes). There is nonetheless much important information in addition to the account of the Australian coast, and 'The story moves rapidly, with well-chosen detail The author describes marine animals, Tahitian and New Zealand society, and foodstuff including the breadfruit that Joseph Banks later decided to introduce to the Caribbean, leading to the ill-fated Bounty voyage' (introduction to the Cambridge University press digital edition, 2015).

        Leçons de physique expérimentale

      Durand, Paris 1771 - Plein veau marbré de l'époque, dos à cinq nerfs orné et doré portant les pièces de titre et de tomaison, tranches rouges, gardes en papier marbré. Six volumes in-12 (170x97 mm), (4)-cviii-379 pages / (4)-488 pages / (4)-512 pages / (4)-535-(1) pages / vi-(2)-592 pages / iv-524 pages, un frontispice et 118 planches dépliantes (sur 116, 2 planches sont en double au tome 2) Très bon exemplaire malgré quelques légères mouillures Jean Antoine Nollet (1700-1770) était un physicien expérimental membre éminent de l'Académie des sciences de Paris. Nollet a consacré beaucoup de temps sur l'électricité et est devenu l'une des autorités de son temps. ["Nollet became the chief of the European electricians" (DSB, X p. 146)]. Il conçu les premiers électromètres (1747). En 1745, il a développé une théorie de l'attraction et de répulsion électrique qui suppose l'existence d'un flux continu de matière électrique entre les organes chargés. Afin de démontrer que l'électricité se déplace à grande vitesse sur une grande distance, il réalisa l'une des expériences les plus impressionnante de l'époque. En présence du roi, il fit relié par un câble 180 gardes royaux qui formaient une ligne de plus d'un kilomètre. Il leur appliqua une décharge à l'aide d'une bouteille de Leyde (ancêtre du condensateur). Les gardes sautèrent et se contournèrent simultanément. Très intéressante édition augmentée d'un "discours sur les dispositions sur les qualités qu'il faut avoir pour faire des progrès dans l'étude de la physique expérimentale". Ce discours de 50 pages, qui ne figure pas dans tous les tirages, a été prononcé par l'abbé Nollet le 16 mai 1753 à l'occasion de l'ouverture de la nouvelle Ecole de physique expérimentale. Tous les tomes de notre exemplaire ont été imprimés la même année (1771). Très bon exemplaire d'un des livres de physique expérimentale les plus populaire du dix-huitième siècle. DSB [X p. 145 : "Nollet's 'Cours de physique' was perhaps the most popular exhibition of this kind ever given. With carefully orchestrated demonstrations performed on some 350 different instruments, the abbé entertained his enthusiastic auditor as, in the spirit of th Enlightenment, he undertook to dispel their "vulgar errors, extravagant fears and faith in the marvellous. These were not mere shows, as one sees from their expanded syllabus, the famous 'Leçons de Physique' which appeared in six volumes between 1743 and 1748 and wad often reprinted. The presentations are lively, comprehensive, and up-to-date, with full directions, for realizing the effects under study and excellent illustrations of apparatus"] ___________________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________ENGLISH_DESCRIPTION______________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________________ Contemporary full mottled calf, spine gilt in six compartments, title and volume number in gilt on lettering-pieces, red edges, marbled endpapers.

Zweite deutsche Ausgabe (Bände I & II) des 1768-69 erstmals in russischer Übersetzung erschienenen epochemachenden Werkes; mit den seltenen, erst 16 Jahre später erschienenen und meist fehlenden Ergänzungen von Lagrange, hier in erster deutscher Ausgabe, übersetzt von C.

Euler begnügte sich nicht damit, die einfachsten algebraischen Grundsätze zu entwickeln, sondern führte in die sublimsten Details der unbestimmten Analysis ein. "Among other things, it contains a thorough description of his proof of the impossibility of solving the equation x + y = z where xyz are integers not equal to zero; this is a particular case of Fermat's famous last theorem" (Norman). - Bände I und II papierbedingt leicht gebräunt.

Working in his official capacity, Bonne compiled some of the most detailed and accurate maps of the period. Bonne?s work represents an important step in the evolution of the cartographic ideology away from the decorative work of the 17th and early 18th century towards a more detail oriented and practical aesthetic. With regard to the rendering of terrain Bonne maps bear many stylistic similarities to those of his predecessor, Bellin. However, Bonne maps generally abandon such common 18th century decorative features such as hand coloring, elaborate decorative cartouches, and compass roses.While mostly focusing on coastal regions, the work of Bonne is highly regarded for its detail, historical importance, and overall aesthetic appeal.

Por El Doctor Don Luis de Betancourt, Y Figueroa, Chantre de la Santa Yglesia de San Franco del Quito, en las Provincias del Peru y Procurador Gral. de las Yndias. Año de 1637. [And:] [1771 Representation.] Representacion hecha al Rey Nro.

      1771 - A fine contemporary Mexican manuscript of the 1771 Representation, “a remarkably frank plea for Mexican autonomy within the imperial framework of the absolutist monarchy”. Mexico, 2 May 1771. Folio (320 x 230 mm), ff. 218. Contemporary red half morocco over marbled boards, spine tooled and lettered in gilt, and gilt edges. Excellent copy in a neat scribal hand. 6,000 $ A fine contemporary manuscript version of the celebrated Mexican 1771 Representation included alongside Betancourt y Figueroa’s work calling for religious posts in the Americas to go to creoles rather than peninsular Spaniards. The 1771 Representation according to the historian David Brading “constituted a remarkably frank plea for Mexican autonomy within the imperial framework of the absolutist monarchy” (Brading, Origins of Mexican Nationalism, 1985, p. 16). For this, it came to be known as one of the earliest calls for Mexican independence from Spain and was included in J. E. Hernández y Dávalos’ Colección de Documentos para la Historia de la Guerra de Independencia de Mexico de 1808 a 1821, México, 1877–1882, vol. I, no. 195, pp. 427–55, with the title “Representacion que hizo la ciudad de México al rey D. Cárlos III en 1771 sobre que los criollos deben ser preferidos á los europeos en la distribucion de empleos y beneficios de estos reinos”. Hernández y Dávalos was the first to publish the 1771 Representation and his is generally that referred to by historians. The version in this manuscript, however, is slightly different and contains some extra passages. In the 18th century, following the shock of defeat in the Seven Years’ War, the Spanish government sought to exert greater control over its transatlantic empire in what Brading has called ‘the virtual reconquest of the Indies’ during the reign of Charles III (Brading, p. 14). In 1767, the Jesuits were expelled from Spanish territories and over four hundred Mexican born clerics, the nucleus of Mexico’s intellectual élite, were banished from Mexico. In addition, Bourbon enlightened ministers such as José de Gálvez and Archbishop Lorenzana, were sent to Mexico to tighten Spain’s grip on its empire, they introduced new taxes and crown monopolies, and employed a vast range of fiscal officials openly favouring peninsulars over creoles in this new regime. It was against this and, more specifically, against a criticism of creole capability sent by Lorenzana to Spain that the 1771 Representation was composed by Mexican officials. As the historian J. M. Pérez Collados points out, what was remarkable about it was not just that it called for creole equality but that it asked for creoles to be preferred over and to the exclusion of peninsulars (Los Discursos Políticos del México Originario: Contribución a los estudios sobre los procesos de independencia iberoamericanos, 1998, p. 40). The 1771 Representation was one of, if not, the most powerful protest against the Bourbon reforms that were being so vigorously imposed on Mexico during the years in which this manuscript was written and it was natural that it should be associated with works such as that by Betancourt y Figueroa’s which, according to Burkholder, was even re-published in a Madrid periodical in 1789 (see Burkholder, p. 58). The tensions created by the Bourbon reforms would overflow in the nineteenth century into the fight for Mexican independence and thus Hernández y Dávalos’ identification of this 1771 Representation as one of the earliest documents in the Mexican independence movement is understandable. It is also written alongside Betancourt’s treatise – on the same paper, in the same hand – with the modified title, ‘Representation made to the King by the City of Mexico which treats the same subject as the previous work’, clearly indicating that the two works were being associated at the time when Mexico’s Ayuntamiento sent their Representation to Carlos III in 1771. While acting as a representative for the cathedrals. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Mélanges de physique et de médecine

      chez P. G. Cavelier, libraire, rue S. Jacques, au Lys d'or : 1771 : 8vo: a6 A-2B8 (+/H6), 200 leaves, pp. [4] iii-ix [1] 400. Each gathering is signed 'Tome I'. One engraved plate (platemark 178 x 105mm) bound as a throwout at K3v. Woodcut device on title, head- and tail-pieces in the text.Leaf 196 x 123. : An important collection of memoirs, four of which are published here for the first time. The first paper in the volume presents Le Roy's highly influential theory of evaporation, based on the idea that vapours in the air are analogous to salts in solution. The word 'precipitation' in meteorology is a linguistic remnant of Le Roy's theory, by which he 'performed an invaluable service to science' by clearing the way for the important advances in the theory of evaporation made by Dalton and Lavoisier. (See J.B. Gough, DSB 8:255-56.)Le Roy, an eminent physician and teacher of medicine, was the son of the celebrated horologist, Julien Le Roy. He received his medical training at Montpellier and became a member of the faculty of medicine there after travelling extensively in Italy.The separate memoirs in the volume are: 1. Mémoire sur l'élévation et la suspension de l'eau dans l'air; et sur la rosée.2. Mémoire sur l'usage des eaux de Balaruc.3. Observations sur les eaux de Balaruc.4. Mémoire sur le méchanisme par lequel l'oeil s'accomode aux differentes distances des objets.5. Second mémoire sur la vision, considérée relativement aux differentes distances des objets, with a plate.6. Mémoires sur les fievres aiguës.7. Reflexions et observations sur le scorbut.8. Mémoire sur les eaux sulphureuses, contenant le moyen de les imiter parfaitement.9. Précis sur les eaux minérales.Items 1, 3 and 4 were first published in the memoirs of the Académie Royale des Sciences 1751, 1752, 1755. Item 9 was first published in Latin as De aquarum mineralium, 1757, 1762. Item 6 was first published as Mémoires et observations de médecine Montpellier,1766. Items 2,5,7 and 8 are published here for the first time.A second volume was published in 1776 and contained a single work, Du pronostic dans les maladies aigues. The present volume is often catalogued on its own and this copy was probably bound for a member of the author's family, no doubt before the second volume appeared as there is no volume number on the spine.

Engraving on hand laid paper. Made by an anonymous engraver after 'Jacques Nicolas Bellin'. Jacques-Nicolas Bellin (1703-1772) was one of the most important cartographers of the 18th century. With a career spanning some 50 years, Bellin is best understood as geographe de cabinet and transitional mapmaker spanning the gap between 18th and early 19th century cartographic styles. His long career as Hydrographer and Ingénieur Hydrographe at the French Dépôt des cartes et plans de la Marine resulted in hundreds of high quality nautical charts of practically everywhere in the world. Depot des Cartes et Plans de la Marine (1720 - present), often called the Depot de Marine, was a French hydrographic mapping organization founded in 1720. Much like the U.S. Coast Survey, the British Admiralty, and the Spanish Deposito Hydrografico, the Depot was initiated as a storehouse and distribution center of existing nautical and marine charts. Eventually the Depot initiated its on mapping activities in an attempt to improve and expand upon existing material. Some of the well known hydrograhers / cartographers in the development of Depot were Jacques Nicholas Bellin and Rigobert Bonne. Good, given age. Original folds, as issued.

        Mosaà que (Mosaics)

      1771 - Encyclopà die, ou dictionnaire raisonnà des sciences, des arts et des mà tiers. Plates vol. 8 Paris (1771) Folio, 253 x 393mm. 14 pages of descriptive text & 5 loose plates with their accompanying text sheet from the volume of plates. Slight browning to margins, a little spotting otherwise very good. The 5 plates and descriptive text for the entry of Mosaà que from volume VIII of plates. Plates are numbered 1-5. Plate 4 is a double plate. 1 page (659) from volume VIII of the Encyclopà die (1765) including Les Romains 11 pages (78, 79, & 741-750) from volume X of the Encyclopà die (1765) including information on Compartimens de pavà s en marbre, and Mosaà que en gà nà ral 1 page (193) from volume XII of the Encyclopà die (1765) including L'usage des pavà s en mosaà que à Rome 1 page (353) from volume III of the Supplà ment à l'Encyclopà die (1777) which includes Mosaà que de Herculanum With some browning to a few leaves. Included with these plates are several relevant entries on Mosaics, including the main ten-page article by Chevalier Louis de Jaucourt. The article primarily concerns the role of mosaics in Christendom philosophy and also their manufacture. Despite focusing largely on the sciences, Jaucourt has been regarded as an important philosopher as well. The article for mosaics is therefore a good example of this polymath's varied interests and specialities. The five plates largely concern the workmanship of this art and the atelier itself. Eight mosaic patterns are also reproduced, including Europe Raised by Jupiter, Neptune and his Trident, and a Barge on the Nile. There is one double plate depicting the Nile Mosaic of Palestrina, with various useful annotations. Thought to be the earliest Roman depiction of Nilotic scenes, close examination suggests that it was produced in the reign of Sulla (ca. 100 B.C.). It is important for a number of reasons, and could possibly be one of the mosaics referred to by Pliny in his Naturalis Historiæ. Having remained in the Barberini family since the 17th-century, the mosaic can now be found in the Museo Nazionale Prenestino.
