        Chart of Part of the Coast of New South Wales , from Cape Tribulation to Endeavour Straits. By Lieut. J. Cook, 1770

      London, 1773. Engraved map, 325 x 360 mm., original folds; small repaired tear to right-hand margin without loss; in fine condition. Cook charts Queensland. The earliest charting of the coast of Queensland, commemorating one of the most memorable passages of Cook&#39;s first voyage. This map, prepared by Cook himself, details the tracks and anchorages of the {i Endeavour} as the expedition sailed north along the coastline in 1770. Far North Queensland was a difficult passage for the {i Endeavour} of course: the ship ran aground on a shoal near the Hope Isles and required numerous repairs at Endeavour River. The expedition&#39;s naturalists, Joseph Banks, Herman Spöring and Daniel Solander, used the delay as an opportunity to collect Australian flora for European study. Cook&#39;s chart, which was published in this form for Hawkesworth&#39;s official account of the first voyage (see catalogue number XX), shows the exact spot of the reef where the ship went aground, as well as "Endeavour River, where we beached the ship". The track to Cape York, including the passage through Providential Channel, is marked. The original manuscript version from which this was prepared, now in the British Library, is reproduced in {i Historical Records of NSW} (1893, plate 6).

        Manuel des Marins, ou Explication des Termes de Marine

      Lorient: By Julien le Jeune Fils, for the benefit of science, and to be found at bookshops in various seaports,, 1773. 2 volumes, octavo (200 × 124 mm). Contemporary mottled sheep trade binding, title gilt direct to spine, floral and arabesque devices in compartments formed by a foliate roll between rules, edges marbled. Headpieces. Light browning, binding worn at the corners, head- and tail-caps chipped, but remains very good and attractive. First edition. Born in St. Malo in 1732, Bourdé spent his entire career in the employ of the Compagnie des Indes based at Lorient. His reputation was made by the publication in 1765 of Le Manoeuvrier, which he had submitted for the approbation of the Academie des Sciences. An English translation was published in 1788 and Bourdé joined Hoste and Bigot de Morogues as French naval theoreticians who became highly influential on both sides of the channel. In the present work he attempts the definition of terms currently in use at sea, on the basis of the principle that from words "we are led to an understanding of all the rest." Authors of other marine dictionaries lack experience at sea, and simply cannot define that which they do not understand without error, mistaking one thing for another, and stuffing their works with false explanations. He will attempt to write as simply, but as precisely as possible, in the "langage ordinaire des Marins," making his dictionary useful not just to seamen, but also to merchants, politicians, and "on qui fréquentent les Ports du Royaume." Uncommon, COPAC shows just two copies of the 1799 revised edition in Britain, nine copies on OCLC, eight of them in the USA.

        An Account of the Voyages... in the Southern Hemisphere

      London: W. Strahan, 1773. Three volumes, quarto, with 52 finely engraved maps and plates; in contemporary calf skilfully rebacked; slight staining to edges of a few pages in the first volume, otherwise a very good set. The great voyage compendium, including the official account of Cook&#39;s first voyage. A really handsome set of this fundamental book: the official account of Cook&#39;s great first voyage in the {i Endeavour}, during the course of which he discovered and charted the entire east coast of Australia, naming it New South Wales. Published three years after the earliest surreptitious publication of the unofficial narrative now know to have been written by the sailor Magra, this is the full official version of the voyage, sanctioned by the Admiralty, and published after some delay in its preparation in this elegant and substantial form. It is the first full-dress narrative and illustration of this extraordinary voyage, and consequently has the greatest significance for any collection of Australiana or of voyages. The collection sets the scene for the Cook narrative by including in the first volume the official narratives of the voyages of Byron, Wallis and Carteret; the compendium thus contains the cream of eighteenth-century English exploration in the Pacific Ocean. The Cook text, which occupies the whole of the second and third volumes, was edited from Cook&#39;s journals by the professional writer John Hawkesworth. It was not to everyone&#39;s taste: Cook himself, notoriously reticent, disliked his editor&#39;s use of the first person in the narrative. This particularly attractive set is a good example of the first edition in its most complete form, containing both the "Directions for Placing the Cuts and Charts" and the "Chart of the Streight of Magellan", either or both of which are often lacking in copies of the first edition.

        NACHRICHTEN VON DER AMERIKANISCHEN HALBINSEL CALIFORNIEN: MIT EINEM ZWEYFACHEN ANHANG FALSCHER NACHRICHTEN

      Mannheim: Churfurstl. Hof-und Academie-Buchdruckerey, 1773.. [16],358pp. plus two engraved plates and folding map. Contemporary patterned paper boards; expertly rebacked and recornered to style, preserving original leather label. Internally clean. Very good plus. Second issuewith some corrections, after the first printing of the previous year, of this rare account of Lower California by the German Jesuit, Jacob Baegert. Baegert lived in Baja California for a period of seventeen years (1751-68) and spent most of his time at the Mission of San Luis Gonzaga, leaving after the expulsion of the Jesuits in 1767. He provides some important details on the culture of the Indians of Baja California, including the Pericues, Guiacuras, and Cochiemes. Wagner states that the German Jesuits were especially dissatisfied toward the end of the Jesuit regime in California, and Baegert&#39;s bitterness is evident in his book: "...it was a land full of ferocious beasts and even more ferocious Indians, the soil was poor, the water undrinkable and there was no fuel to be had." The fine and important map was made by the fellow Jesuit, Ferdinand Consak, and is described by Streeter as "most helpful in giving the location of the many Jesuit missions in Lower California. It also shows the route along the west coast of Mexico followed by Baegert in going to California in 1751 and his route out in 1768, after the expulsion of the Jesuits." The top right corner of the territory (present day Arizona) is labeled, rather ominously, "Los Apaches Barbari." The excellent plates, which were apparently not issued with all copies, depict male and female California Indians. The NUC locates only three copies of this second issue. A prime early account of Baja California, with an important map and plates of the region. HOWES B29. HILL, p.12. COWAN, p.27. SABIN 4363. BELL B5 (1772 ed). STREETER SALE 2442. BARRETT 129.

        A JOURNAL OF A VOYAGE TO THE SOUTH SEAS, IN HIS MAJESTY&#39;S SHIP, THE ENDEAVOUR

      London: Printed for Stanfield Parkinson, 1773.. xxiii,212,[2]pp. plus twenty-six plates, a map, and an engraved frontispiece portrait. Large quarto. Contemporary marbled boards with vellum corners; expertly rebacked in calf, retaining original leather label. Slight offsetting from some plates, otherwise quite clean, a near fine copy. A large paper copy of this important narrative. Parkinson accompanied Capt. James Cook on his first voyage to the South Pacific and New Zealand, serving as draughtsman under naturalist Joseph Banks. As botanical artist for the Endeavor voyage, Parkinson produced a large number of magnificent botanical and natural history drawings of Tahiti, New Zealand, and Australia. His untimely death near the end of the voyage while en route from Batavia to the Cape of Good Hope resulted in a dispute between his brother, Stanfield, and Banks over ownership of his manuscripts and drawings. When Hawkesworth learned of the impending publication of this work, he sought and received an injunction to prevent its appearance until sometime after the official account was issued. Hawkesworth went so far as to omit mention of Parkinson&#39;s name from the official account, and even failed to give him credit for his botanical illustrations. The present work stands as the most attractive of the unofficial accounts of Cook&#39;s first voyage. It contains extensive descriptions of Australia and New Zealand, and is the first work to properly identify the kangaroo by name. The handsome plates are from Parkinson&#39;s drawings, and they depict natives of Tierra del Fuego, Tahiti, and New Zealand, scenes in Tahiti and New Zealand, and native artifacts. Also included are several vocabularies of South Sea languages. A major journal for Cook&#39;s first voyage. BEDDIE 712. BELL P100. STREETER SALE 2406. HILL 1308. DAVIDSON, pp.54-56. HOLMES 7.

        A Journal of a Voyage to the South Seas, in His Majesty's Ship the Endeavour

      Printed for Stanfield Parkinson, London 1773 - Contemporary marbled boards with vellum corners, rebacked in calf, retaining original red morocco lettering piece Large-paper copy of Parkinson's important illustrated account of Cook's first voyage: "Parkinson was engaged by Sir Joseph Banks to accompany him and Captain Cook in the Endeavour to the South Seas, as natural history draughtsman . After exploring Tahiti, New Zealand, Australia, and the Great Barrier Reef, the expedition reached Batavia. On leaving for the Cape of Good Hope, Parkinson succumbed to fever and dysentery and was buried at sea. Banks spoke highly of his 'unbounded industry' in making for him a much larger collection of drawings than he had anticipated. His observations, too, were valuable, and the vocabularies of South Sea languages given in his journals are of great interest. Upon Banks' return to England, Stanfield Parkinson, Sydney's brother, claimed all the drawings made by his brother in his spare hours, as well as journals and collections, under a will made before Sydney Parkinson left England. Following the dispute, his writings were lent to Stanfield Parkinson, who transcribed them and prepared them for publication, but an injunction was obtained . to restrain him from publishing until after the appearance of . Hawkesworth's official account" (Hill). Parkinson's drawings stand as one of the chief visual sources for the voyage: he produced a large number of magnificent botanical, natural history and ethnographical drawings of Tierra del Fuego, Tahiti, New Zealand, and Australia. At the time, these drawings offered Europe its first view of life in the South Pacific. The work contains extensive descriptions of Australia and New Zealand, and is the first work to properly identify the kangaroo by name. A major journal for Cook's first voyage.

A Work very useful for the Working Mechanic, or Gentlemen Mechanically Inclined. Illustrated by Eighteenth Copper-Plates, Geometrically Drawn for the Use of the Trade.

      London: Printed for T. Longman and G. Robinson. B. Law. and J. Wilkie. 1773 - FIRST EDITION. 8vo, pp. [ii], xvi, 400, including half-title, 18 folding engraved plates (at pp. 164, 180, 186, 194, 206, 212, 230, 242, 290, 300, 326, 328, 368, 384 (4 plates that should have been bound before page 368), 400, contemporary annotation in lower margin of p. viii, contemporary calf, recently rebacked to match with gilt spine and raised bands, morocco label, and corners restored; slight stains on front free end-paper and verso of half-title, but a very good copy with the armorial book-plate of William Lewis Newman on the front paste-down end-paper. In the dedication of the work to "Lord Stanley," Thomas Hatton (fl. 1757 - 1774) notes his family seat is in the "centre of the whole support of this great branch of trade, which is the subject of the following sheets." He complains however that the number of those employed in the clock and watch trade is only one fourth of what it once was: "a great part of it is got into the hands of Pagan and Christian Jews, who carry on the business to suit their brethren, and have sold the faith of the Nation abroad." In the preface, he mentions previous works by Hugyens, Hook, Derham, and Martin. In the same year, Hatton also published his Essay on Gold Coin. It was reprinted in 1774, with new material. A facsimile of the above work appeared in 1978.

        Mémoire sur les Opinions qui partagent les Militaires,

      Paris, Claude-Antoine Jombert, , 1773. suivi du Traité des Armes Défensives, corrigé et augmenté. Octavo. (192 × 133mm). Contemporary half vellum on marbled boards, tan morocco label. 4 folding plates. One plate torn without loss, light foxing and browning, a little rubbed externally, but overall very good. First Edition thus. Maizeroy was, despite the claims of Guichard, the most important expert of his time on the art of war in antiquity. He pursued the "scholarly study of Greek and Roman warfare, which he compared with, and brought to bear on, modern warfare... Throughout history... war conveyed clear lessons, provided it was seriously studied. "The theory of the Greeks was fixed, certain and uniform, because it was treasured up in methodical treatises." No change could affect the universal fundamentals of the art of war. The search for the perfect system of tactics is... the principal theme in Maizeroy&#39;s writings... the principles of tactics were not only universally valid but also based upon a rigorous and precise rationale of mathematics" (Gat The Origins of Military Thought, pp. 40&#150;41). The present work discusses current thinking on column and line, grand manoeuvres, artillery and the role of the defensive with reference to Saxe, Folard, Guibert, and others. Brief notices of the Battles of Prestonpans and Falkirk.

        The Merits and Defects of the Dead by their Ingenious Secretary.

      London May 1st 1773 - Broadside, oblong folio, overall 19" x 12", hand-coloured engraving by William Austin, minor usage, printed one side as issued. A satire on George Lyttleton. First Baron Lyttleton (1709-1773) of Hagley, Worcestershire, author of 'Dialogues Of The Dead'. The illustration shows Lyttleton in the guise of the Grand Reaper: a tall, lanky figure sitting on a gravestone and holding a sickle. Facing him is a gravedigger holding out a human skull with the lines 'Life is a jest and all things show it, I thought so once but now I know it' emenating from its mouth and billowing towards Lyttleton. The gist of the satire is that Lyttleton who once assumed to record the conversations of the dead was himself not much longer for this world- as, indeed, was the case as he was to pass away barely 3 months after the publication of this broadside.

      printed for John and Francis Rivington, William Johnston, Thomas Longman and Thomas Cadell, London 1773 - First and only edition, 4to, pp. [8], viii, 57, [1], plus unpaginated lexicon in double column; mid 20th century half calf over marbled boards, gilt-decorated spine, red morocco label; overall appearance is fine. A "hack writer" who possessed a "strong love of notoriety, [and] a jealous and perverse temper," Kenrick (?1725-1779) "was often drunk and violent. He became the enemy of every decent and successful person, and so notorious as a libeler that few condescended to answer him. His vanity lead him to fancy himself equal to any task without serious study. In his later years Kenrick seldom wrote without a bottle of brandy at his elbow. Though a superlative scoundrel, he was clever, and especially proud of the rapidity of his writing; even his more serious works seldom occupied him for more than two days" (see DNB for a lively account of this literary curmudgeon). Among those most frequently attacked and offended were Johnson and Boswell, Garrick, Goldsmith, Fielding, and, predictably, other famous men, who, by association would give Kendrick a name. For all his attacks on Johnson (Kenrick was violently critical of Johnson's edition of Shakespeare and his dictionary) he seems to have made good use of Johnson's lexicographic skills. A spot check of entries shows Kenrick's lexicon to be a word-for-word transcription from that of Johnson. Alston V, 283; Kennedy 6276. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Tres vol. en piel de época, lomeras cuajadas, tejuelos, cortes pintados. * Primera edición de esta interesante obra sobre medicina natural, la más importante de Juan Rancé, catedrático del Real Colegio de Cirugía de Barcelona y director de la institución en 1779. La obra se divide en tres tomos: el primero y el segundo se dedican a la materia médica interna (medicamentos evacuantes y medicamentos alterantes, respectivamente). En la primera parte, dedicada a los medicamentos evacuantes, Rancé se extiende sobre los purgantes, los eméticos, los sudoríficos, uterinos, etc. En cuanto a los alterantes, esto es, los que modifican alguna de las funciones sin provocar la salida o evacuación, el autor los distribuye en trece capítulos, entre los cuales se encuentran los aperitivos, cardíacos, carminativos, vermífugos, refrigerantes, astringentes, antiescorbúticos y narcóticos. El tercer tomo, por contra, se consagra a los medicamentos externos (que divide en universales y particulares) y está compuesto por 17 capítulos más un último apartado dedicado a los baños y aguas minerales (cita las de Caldes d'Estrach, Ribes, 1'Espluga de Francoli, Sant Hilari, Tortosa, la "Font Groga" de Valle de Hebron y la fuente de la "Satalia" a los pies de Montjuïc. Además incluye, con paginación propia, el Suplemento a la materia medica, que da las nociones, y definiciones de los medicamentos. Como curiosidad, decir que el autor cita como remedios de origen animal, en concreto entre los sudoríficos, la víbora, los excrementos de animales e incluso algunos de origen humano, como la momia o el cráneo humano, que especifica "Debe ser sacado de un hombre joven, robusto, sano, que haya muerto de una muerte violenta y que no haya sido sepultado; no se debe calcinar, como creian los antiguos, pero solamente ser raspado o reducido en polvos después de secado." Jacint Corbella, en Nota sobre el tractat de Materia medica de Joan Rancé (1773) (Gimbemat, 2004 (**), 42, 89-103) ofrece una detallada descripción de la obra y analiza de forma pormenorizada su estructura, contenido y estilo. Corbella se fija en algunos de los medicamentos propuestos para dolencias concretas, como la absenta, que fortificaría el estómago y facilitaría la digestión; el agua mercurial, la raíz de helecho y el petróleo, grandes carminativos; el mercurio como potente antivenéreo; la carne de tortuga y ternera como refrigerantes; el cuerno de ciervo, los fragmentos de las cinco piedras preciosas (amatista, esmeralda, granate, jacinto y topacio) y el hueso de sepia como absorbentes. Rancé había estudiado junto a Antoine Fizes, entre otros. Formado en Francia, era doctor en Montpellier antes de la creación del primer Colegio de Cirugía de la Península, el de Cádiz. Se trata pues de un autor con una sólida formación preparado para la docencia y concienciado con esta tarea. Sin embargo, no escribe mucho más allá de este tratado y Corbella dice que el resto de su obra no tiene un nivel "que le permita mantener el prestigio en generaciones posteriores", por lo que cayó prácticamente en el olvido. Sin embargo, el Tratado que presentamos fue importante y útil en su época, pues mejoró el grado y nivel asistencial de la población. La publicación, equilibrada, accesible y directa, tuvo además el mérito de dotar a los futuros cirujanos de una extensa formación en materia de terapéutica. Palau 248034.

        Letters on the Improvement of the Mind, Addressed to a Young Lady [With:] Miscellanies in Prose and Verse.

      London: J Walter/ E.& C. Dilly, 1773-5. - Hester Chapone (1727-1760) was one of the Bluestockings. She was associated especially with Elizabeth Carter, and Elizabeth Montagu, to whom this work is dedicated, but was also a friend of Samuel Richardson, Frances Burney dÕArblay, and Gilbert White. She came to the attention of Samuel Johnson, who admitted four of her pieces to The Rambler. The publication of Letters on the Improvement of the Mind, (1773), a treatise on female education, brought her fame, if not fortune; she was paid £50 for it. She was paid five times that for Miscellanies in Prose and Verse, which included her early verses, moral essays, and ÒThe Story of Fidelia,Ó first published in The Adventurer (See the Linda V. Troost article in An Encyclopedia of British Women Writers). Three volumes, small octavo. viii, 200; [2], 230; xii, 178, [2, ads] pp. Lacking the half-title to Volume III. Uniformly bound in contemporary mottled calf. Gilt-decorated flat spines with black morocco labels. Binding extremities lightly rubbed, front joints of the first two volumes neatly repaired.

September 1781 in Anklam) war Stadtsekretär und Historiker. Carl Friedrich Stavenhagen wurde als Sohn des Kaufmanns Gottfried Stavenhagen und seiner Ehefrau Regina, geb. Oemichen, in Anklam geboren. Nachweislich studierte er bis 1746 die Rechte an der Universität Halle. 1748 ging er nach Kurland zu nahen Verwandten. Dort wurde er Erzieher der Söhne des Kanzlers Diedrich von Keyserling . Ab 1754 war er wieder in Anklam und wurde Stadtsekretär. 1773 gab er eine Chronik von Anklam heraus, die ihn in Preußen bekannt gemacht hat. Sein Verdienst war es, dass er auf Grund seiner Tätigkeit alle wesentlichen Urkunden auswertete, zusammenfasste und sie chronologisch einordnetete. Er konnte sich dabei auf Materialien stützen, die vor ihm an der Anklamer Geschichte interessierte Persönlichkeiten aufgestellt hatten. Das Buch enthält ein Verzeichnis der 240 Subskribenden , das nachvollziehbar werden lässt, in welchen Kreisen Interesse für dieses stadtgeschichtliche Buch bestand. So wurden 84 Bücher von Einwohnern Anklams subskribiert, davon 36 von Handwerkern. 1777 wurde Stavenhagen Stadtsyndikus. Am 6. Oktober 1756 heiratete er Caroline Sophie von Scheven aus einer Anklamer Gewandschneiderfamilie (Das Schevensche Haus war in der Peenstraße 51 - das spätere Eleonorenstift). Die Geschichte der Brautwerbung hat der aus Anklam stammende Schriftsteller Konrad Maß in seinem Buch "Das Haus Stavenhagen" anschaulich geschildert. Er stammte aus einer angesehenen Patrizierfamilie, deren Vertreter vorwiegend Kaufleute waren. Nach alten Urkunden stammte die Familie aus dem Mecklenburgischen , wahrscheinlich aus der Stadt Stavenhagen . Das Stammhaus des Geschlechts der Stavenhagen war das Haus Markt 21, welches 1896 an den Ein- und Verkaufsverein verkauft und am 29. April 1945 durch deutschen Beschuss zerstört wurde. Die Familie Stavenhagen hatte in der Marienkirche eine Erbbegräbnisstelle. 1934 entdeckten Handwerker in der Marienkirche das Erbbegräbnis der Familie Stavenhagen mit 22 Särgen. Aus der beiliegenden Denkschrift aus dem Jahre 1849 ist ersichtlich, dass die Grabstelle 1773 von der Kirchenbehörde gekauft worden war. (Wikipedia). Titelblatt fehlt, gefalteter Plan der Stadt Anklam. Schwacher Wasserrand im Mittelteil, kaum sichtbar.
