         Catalogus librorum qui ex Typographio Sacrae Congreg. de Propaganda Fide variis linguis prodierunt et in eo adhuc asservantur.

      Rome, Typis Sac. Congreg. de Propaganda Fide, 1773. - 8vo. 55, (1) pp. With woodcut printer's device on title page (Christ sending the Apostles forth to spread the Gospel). Unbound as issued. Very scarce catalogue of oriental books printed by the Propaganda Fide press. Pages 10-12 list no fewer than 28 publications in Arabic, many of which (such as Scialac's and Sionita's 1613 version of the "Doctrica Christiana") are still considered milestones of Arabic typography. Prints in other languages such as Chaldaean, Persian, Syriac, and Ottoman Turkish bear further witness to the unrivalled excellence of the Propaganda Press in the field of Middle Eastern typography. A first such catalogue had appeared in 1765; of this second, expanded edition OCLC lists no more than two copies (Tübingen and Copenhagen). - Well-preserved throughout. OCLC 465974789. Not in Besterman.

         Recuëil van alle de placaten, ordonnantien, resolutien, instructien, lysten en waarschouwingen, betreffende de admiraliteyten, convoyen, licenten, en verdere zee-saaken.

      The Hague, Jacob, Paul & Isaac Scheltus, 1701-1773. - 4to. 11 volumes. With a folding table in vol. 8. Contemporary vellum, numbered in manuscript on the spine, red sprinkled edges. Complete set of a compilation of all resolutions, ordinances, treaties and other statements and motions by the States General of the Dutch Republic, regarding all maritime matters. The collection starts in 1597 with the establishment of the five admiralties in the Dutch Republic and ends in 1771, although a few resolutions from the period of Habsburg rule (the oldest from 1487) have been included. Most of the resolutions concern trade, including the trade with the Baltic, East and West Indies, North Africa and the Turkish Empire, but also fishery, the equipage of battleships and the administration of the colonies in the West Indies, including slavery. Several tables give interesting information regarding the costs of the building and outfitting of ships and the formation of regiments for the colonies. One very large table presents the tariffs for all sorts of products, including numerous types of wood, glass, porcelain, fish and furs. - A collection of resolutions had been previously published in two volumes in 1689 and 1694. In 1701 an expanded volume 2, present in the current collection, was published, with volume 3 following in 1721. Interestingly, a new and much expanded volume 1 was published in 1730. The present set, published during a course of over 70 years, includes these expanded editions of volumes 1 and 2. All indexes have been bound in the corresponding volume, instead of in a separate index volume. - With the bookplates of the collector Jan Willem Six de Vromade (1874-1936), a descendant of the politically and culturally significant Six family, in the first volume, and of the Dutch politician and historian Leonard de Gou (1916-2000) in all volumes. Bindings slightly smudged. Somewhat browned and stained throughout, most notably volume 8, and with a small tear in the front flyleaf of volume 6. A very good set of an important source for Dutch maritime history. Elliott, Maritime History in the John Carter Brown Library (revised ed.) 1093.

         Mappa Geographica Poloniae ex novissimis quot quot sunt. Mappis specialibus composita in parte maiores.

      Artist: Homann Erben ca ; issued in: Nuremberg; date: ca1773 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Perfect condition; - size (in cm): 45,5 x 50; - description: Map shows total Poland with Lithuania and Ukrainia.; - vita of the artist: Johann Babtiste Homann (1664-1724) was born in Oberkammlach, the Electorate of Bavaria. Although educated at a Jesuit school, and preparing for an ecclesiastical career, he eventually converted to Protestantism and from 1687 worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house.Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as a recommendation for potential customers.In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt (Grand Atlas of all the World). Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, who also published Siebmachers Wappenbuch.Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, which was in business until 1848. The company was known as Homann Erben, Homanniani Heredes, or Heritiers de Homann abroad.

         Fables nouvelles. 2 parts in 1 vol.

      The Hague and Paris, Delalain 1773 - With frontispiece, 2 figured titles, 99 large vignettes, and 99 tailpieces, all engr. after Marillier by de Ghendt, Longueil, Née, Launoy, Baquoy, a.o. XXII pp., 1 leaf, 176 pp.; 1 leaf (bound after p. 184), pp. 177-309, (3) pp. 8vo. 20th-century brown morocco, spine in 6 compartments richly gilt, boards surrounded by triple gilt fillets, double gilt fillet on outer edges, wide gilt inner dentelles, edges gilt, marbled paste-downs and flyleaves (first inner hinge reinforced, minimal fading to spine and lower cover). The Hague and Paris, Delalain, 1773-(75). A luxurious edition of Dorat's "Fables", a copy on Dutch paper with ample margins. With the carton replacing pp. 161/62 and with all typographic characteristics to identify it as the definitive edition as opposed to the reimpression of the same year. "In delicacy of execution, as well as in the beauty of the embellishments, the book rivals 'Les Baisers', and must be regarded as Marillier's masterpiece" (Lewine). According to Fürstenberg, Marillier represents best of all the style of illustration of the period of Louis XVI. His vignettes and ornamental pieces are always fine and graceful without becoming too mannered. The illustrations accompanying Dorat's "Fables" are considered to be the artist's most beautiful work. The present definitive edition was preceded by a provisional edition which only included a few of Marillier's engravings in their first printing state. Though the publishing date of the book is 1773, the vignettes in part II are dated 1774 or 1775, so presumably this was completed in 1775 only. - The engr. figured title to part II is misbound, the preceding frontispiece is lacking. - Quérard, La France littéraire II, 577; Cioranescu 25113; Cohen/de Ricci 313-15 (cites the title differently); Lewine 150f.; Sander 508; Fürstenberg, Das französische Buch im 18.

         A Voyage from England to India, in the Year MDCCLIV, and an Historical Narrative or the Operations of the Squadron and Army in India, under the Command of Vice-Admiral Watson and Colonel Clive... Also, a Journey from Persia to England, by an Unusual Route.

      London: Edward and Charles Dilly, 1773. 4to. xii, 506 pp. b/w folding maps and plates. From 1753 to 1757 Ives was Surgeon aboard the "Kent," flagship of vice admiral Watson in the East Indies. His book includes an account of Geriah Fort (now Vijaydurg), a notorious pirate stronghold. Watson and Clive seized the town and burned the pirate ships. Ives' "unusual" return route took him through Basra, Baghdad, Mosul, Aleppo, Cyprus and Leghorn. The work also includes appendices on military and tropical medicine, medical botany, and epidemiology. According to the DNB "Ives' presence at many of the transaction he describes and his personal intimacy with Watson gives his historical narrative an unusual importance, and his accounts of the manners and customs of the inhabitants, and of ther products of the countries he visited, are those of an enlightened and acute observer." - DNB Vol 29, p. 79. See also Cox I, p. 299. This is an excellent copy. The folding maps are linen-backed and the 13 plates are clean and fresh. It has been rebound in full mottled calf with raised bands, gilt spine decorations, leather label, and an embossed image of a ship on the front board - a well done and unusual binding, befitting Ives' Unusual Route. The most recent copy to appear at auction brought 3500 pounds in 2016. The Brooke-Hitching copy sold for 4000 pounds in 2014.

         A Journal of a Voyage to the South Seas, in His Majesty's ship, the 'Endeavour'. Faithfully transcribed from the Papers of the late Sydney Parkinson, Draughtsman to Joseph Banks, Esq. on his late Expedition, with Dr Solander, round the World

      London, Printed for Stanfield Parkinson, the Editor, 1773. Imperial quarto, xxiv (last blank), 212, [2] (errata and directions to the binder) pages plus a frontispiece portrait, a map and 26 plates. Recent antique-style full calf, retaining the early sides (displaying suitable signs of the times) and the old endpapers (a little blemished), and probably retaining the early boards, judging by the profile of the corners; minimal foxing; some offsetting from the plates (as usual); one plate with a sealed tear in the blank margin; a clean, crisp, wide-margined copy, in excellent condition overall. An unauthorised account of Cook's first voyage by Sydney Parkinson, the young natural history draughtsman engaged by Joseph Banks. '[Parkinson] died at Batavia of dysentery 26th January, 1771, on the homeward voyage. His brother Stanfield, to anticipate Hawkesworth's account of the voyage, hurriedly published this journal. After a few copies had appeared the further issue was stopped by an injunction in Chancery, on the score of infringement of Dr Hawkesworth's rights, and of material belonging to Mr Banks' (Hocken, page 13). The superb engraved plates that illustrate this lavish publication (chiefly portraits of South Sea islanders and views from the voyage) were produced from drawings done by Parkinson in his spare time and claimed by Stanfield on the return of the voyage. Parkinson's work on the voyage, in particular his numerous botanical drawings and watercolours, was retained by Banks, and formed the basis of his 'Florilegium'.

         Traité des fiefs de Dumoulin, analysé et conféré avec les autres feudistes.

      Paris, Valade 1773 - in-4, [4] ff. n. ch. (faux-titre & titre, dédicace à Molé de Champlâtreux), iv-717 pp., [2] pp. n. ch. de privilège, maroquin vieux-rouge, dos à nerfs orné de guirlandes et caissons fleurdelisés dorés, armes au centre, pièce de titre verte, encadrement de triple filet doré sur les plats, double filet doré sur les coupes, tranches dorées, dentelle intérieure (reliure de l'époque). Unique édition. Si l'on en croit la longue notice que Dupin consacre, pour une fois, à ce titre, l'ouvrage parut sans l'épître dédicatoire à Molé de Champlâtreux, qui, après de multiples examens par la censure, la lieutenance de police, etc. aurait fortement déplu au chancelier Maupeou. De fait, les exemplaires des dépôts publics (dans la mesure où on daigne en donner une collation .) semblent ne pas la comprendre. Notre exemplaire la comporte parce que c'est celui du dédicataire lui-même ; est-ce l'unique ? il est tentant de le penser, mais, dans ce domaine, il ne faut jurer de rien . Ayant déjà présenté en 1769 un Eloge de Du Moulin, Pierre-Paul-Nicolas Henrion de Pansey (1742-1829), spécialisé tôt dans les matières féodales, donna logiquement ce commentaire très complet sur le principal ouvrage de son devancier dans ce domaine. Bientôt, la Révolution allait renvoyer cette première partie de sa carrière dans l'histoire du droit, et il dut, sous le Directoire et le Consulat, réorienter radicalement son oeuvre théorique. Dupin, 1574. Précieux et bel exemplaire aux armes du dédicataire Mathieu-François Molé de Champlâtreux (1705-1793), premier président du Parlement de Paris, démissionnaire en 1763 par suite d'un refus de courtiser Madame de Pompadour. Il est possible que cet exemplaire de présent n'ait cependant jamais été remis à Molé, ce qui expliquerait sa transmission en-dehors de la famille (cf. infra). O.H.R. 260 (variante). L'ouvrage passa ensuite dans la collection de Edmond Lafond (1821-1875, vignette ex-libris), homme de lettres passablement abondant, lequel, dans une note manuscrite, explique que l'auteur était ami intime de son grand-père, Jean-Marie Harlé d'Ophove (1765-1838).

Soweit möglich bemührt er sich um Zuschreibungen, die auch am Ende durch ein Register erschlossen sind. - Unter dem Titel "Anzeige derer Gemählde." erschien erst ein Jahr später noch ein separater Tafelband, der jedoch als unabhängiges Werk gilt und auch in den neueren Facsimile-Ausgaben nicht reproduziert ist. - DABEI: Casanova, Giovanni Battista.

Casanova, jüngerer Bruder des sprichwörtlichen Abenteurers und Erotomanen, galt als einer der bedeutendsten Zeichner und besten Kopisten seiner Zeit. Er hatte unter anderem bei Mengs studiert und unterrichtete dann z.B. Angelika Kauffmann und Winckelmann, der ihn die Zeichnungen für seine "Monumenti antichi inediti" anfertigen liess und ihn den "grössten Zeichner in Rom" nannte. Zu den hier beschriebenen antiken Kunstwerken (meist Statuen, aber auch Münzen, Reliefs u.a.) nennt er oft interessanterweise auch die Ankaufspreise. - Dieses Exemplar hat auf dem ersten Titel verso einen kleinen alten Bibliotheksstempel, auf dem Vorsatz ein altes Wappen-Exlibris: "Zur Gräfl. vom Hagen'schen Majorats-Bibliothek Möckern gehörig. No 3899". Es handelt sich um ein "enteignetes Exemplar, restituiert an Rechtsnachfolger", dann von diesem verkauft.

The text with 24 plates and charts as called for, with two large folding maps and 61 plates. Some offsetting and overall light wear, a clean attractive set overall. Captain Cook's Voyages are an iconic symbol of discovery and served not only to contribute to many diverse fields of knowledge, but also to inspire many who followed after him. "He was really the first scientific navigator" (Hill) and the only explorer during this time to lead three circumnavigations. The knowledge accumulated during these explorations greatly expanded the awareness of the world's geography, and his writings, maps, and drawings significantly aided in future navigations, making sea travel much more certain and educating the general public. Cook's first voyage sailed from England in 1768, rounded Cape Horn and continued westward to arrive in Tahiiti in April of 1769, where the Royal Society had engaged Cook to observe the transit of Venus across the Sun. He then sailed to New Zealand, mapping the complete coastline and then travelling to Australia, where his expedition became the first recorded Europeans to encounter the eastern coastline. The voyage was fraught with many perils, including being nearly ship-wrecked on the Great Barrier Reef and losing many of the crew to malaria in modern day Indonesia, but they were able to finally sail past the Cape of Good Hope and return to England in 1771. Cook's second voyage took place between 1772-1775, with a mission to search for the hypothetical Terra Australis. Cook crossed the Antarctic Circle for the first time in history and thought he disproved the existence of the "Great Southern Continent." He actually almost reached Antarctica on one occasion, but then turned towards Tahiti for supplies. In Cook's third voyage (1776-79), his aim was to search for the North-West Passage through the American continent. He charted the American west coast from Northern California through the Bering Straight. "Cook was the first navigator to accurately map the coast, and, by carrying away a collection of furs, he introduced the fur trade to the English and American traders, whose subsequent expeditions were based upon his discoveries no other contemporaneously printed source narrative is of comparable importance" (Eberstadt). On this voyage, he also discovered the Hawaiian Islands, which he named the Sandwich Islands. Cook died during this third voyage on the Hawaiian islands. With the publication of the first two voyages, and his dramatic death in Hawaii, James Cook became a national hero. So eagerly awaited was his account of the third voyage, that it was sold out a few days after publication. Among his accomplishments Cook discovered New Caledonia, Norfolk Island, the Isle of Pines, Sandwich Land (Hawaii) and rediscovered and charted numerous other lands. He was the first to survey New Zealand where he spent six months. He was also a pioneer in regard to the health of his men. On his second voyage, Cook lost only one man out of 118 in a voyage of more than 1000 days, one of the first to conquer scurvy. As a commander, an observer and a practical physician, his merits were equally great. He won the affection of those who served under him by sympathy, kindness and unselfish care of others, which were as noteworthy as his gifts of discovery and intellect.

         [Fore-Edge Painting] De Officiis ad Marcum Filium

      Paris (Lutetiae): Jos. Barbou, 1773. Full Morocco. Fine. Extraordinary, detailed fore-edge painting of Roman ruins on a near miniature volume. [iv], 346, [2] pp. Engraved frontispiece by N. Le Mire after J. M. Moreau. The volume size is a mere 90 by 66 mm -- few are the fore-edge paintings on such a slim, diminutive volume, and for good reason, as the small size adds to the technical challenge of creating such a painting, let alone, a painting that shows any detail. Here the painting has an obvious tie-in to the contents of the book, which is a nice feature that doesn't apply to the majority of fore-edge paintings. Other virtues of this particular volume are the beauty of the full red morocco binding, with its triple gilt ruled border, simple gilt spine decoration and gilt dentelles, and the beauty of the book itself, which no less than Spielmann deemed "A very important eighteenth century miniature book, printed with the type of Pierre Simon Fournier (1712-68), one of the great French letterfounders . . .
