PREMI?RE ?DITION, comprenant le catalogue initiale des 45 n?buleuses et amas d'?toiles identifi?s par Messier ? cette date. // FIRST EDITION, containing Messier's initial catalogue of 45 objects: "the most celebrated nebulae and clusters, including M1, the Crab Nebula; M13, the globular star cluster in Hercules; and M31, the Andromeda Galaxy" (DSB). First published in 1771, but with an additional 23 new objects observed by Messier since its publication. Most interested in comets, Messier is attributed with the initial discovery of twelve or thirteen from the appearance of Comet 1759 III to Comet 1798 I and three additional independent discoveries. His famous catalogue of objects which retain his M for Messier numbers to this day came about only because "the nebula I discovered above the southern horn of Taurus on September 12, 1758, while observing the comet that year... had such a resemblance to a comet, in its form and brightness, that I endeavoured to find others, so that astronomers would not confuse these same nebulae with comets just beginning to shine" (Messier Connaissance des Temps 1800/1801 recorded in DSB). // Photos available upon request, Livre

Weidmanns Erben und Reich, 1780, 8°, IV, 296 pp., Register 16 pp., und 8 gefaltete Kupferstichtafeln mit mehr als 200 Figuren, Pappband der Zeit; frisches und unbeschnittenes Exemplar. Rare First German Edition of John Hunter's "A natural history of the human teeth. With: A practical treatise on the diseases of the teeth" and " A practical treatise on the diseases of the teeth intended as a supplement to the natural history of those parts" forms the foundation of all modern anatomical texts on the anatomy of the jaws and teeth up to the present time". Prinz - - John Hunter's (1728-1793) "Natural history of the human teeth" "is a detailed study of the mouth, jaws and teeth with exceptionally accurate plates. Hunter correctly understood the growth and development of the jaws and their relation to the muscles of mastication. He coined the terms cuspids, bicuspids, molars and incisors. " - - His "practical treatise on the diseases of the teeth" and " The natural history" revolutionized the practice of dentistry and provided the basis for later dental research. Hunter devised appliances for the correction of malocclusion. He described the various stages of the inflammation of affected teeth, and gave an accurate description of periodontal disease. He included instruction with regard to the operation of tooth transplantation from one living person directly to the jaw of another", he was the first to study the teeth in a scientific manner, and the first to recommend complete removal of the pulp in filling them, and he also devised appliances for the correction of malocclusion; Hunter, devoted three chapters of the regulation of teeth, he was the first to dwell at length on the ideal occlusion. - - Hermann Prinz, Dental Chronology, pp.72-73; Hoffmann-Axthelm, Hist.

        Dolphin; Japanese watercolor

      - Japanese Whale Watercolor Watercolor on rice paper, framed to museum specifications Japanese, c. 1780 The Japanese whaling trade is a long and prosperous one and has only been curtailed in recent years by the imposition of quotas and bans on fishing to protect this majestic beast of the sea. However, the industry is Norwegian in origin and early rock carvings indicate that the trade began in about 2000 B.C. It was not until the tenth century that an organized commercial whaling industry was formed and this was located in the Bay of Biscay and established by the Basques. Scholars consider that Japanese active whaling started in the sixteenth century but it was not until towards the end of that century that it developed into a large-scale endeavor. The Japanese traditionally utilized whales that were found dead or dying on the beach or in near shore water but in 1675, Wada Kakuemon developed the use of nets to capture whales in the open sea. For three hundred years the whaling stock remained constant until the invasion of foreign whalers along Japan's coast disrupted the natural balance, resulting in the depletion of the mammal. The whale provided a wide variety of products for many different crafts, thus leaving very little of the animal to waste. Indeed, the Japanese consider the whale to be a symbol of good fortune and prosperity as illustrated by the Japanese proverb which states, “A whale on the beach is wealth for seven villages.” Thus, these exquisite Japanese watercolors provide depictions of one of Japan’s most revered animals. Their graphic quality and simplicity of execution make them particularly desirable images which date to approximately 1780. 19” x 18 1/2” framed

        A State Of The Expedition from Canada, as Laid Before the House of Commons

      London: J. Almon, 1780. First edition. full polished calf, ruled in gilt, lettered in gilt on spine with raised bands, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Edges a little rubbed and two very small ?gouges? on front cover, a few preliminary and terminal leaves with a little foxing, old name in brown ink on recto of first fly leaf, else fine. Large quarto (10.5 x 8.25 inches) . Illustrated with folding map and 5 folding plans, drawn by Medcalfe and engraved by William Faden This is Burgoyne?s defense of his conduct as the commander of the British expedition down the Hudson Valley from Canada in 1777. Intended to cut off the New England colonies from the rest of rebellious America, the expedition ended in disaster in Saratoga, where American forces soundly defeated Burgoyne and forced his capitulation. Herein Burgoyne answers the inquiry of the House of Commons, demonstrating that the forces he was given were not sufficient to accomplish the task. This is the most important source for information about the campaign, illustrated with excellent maps and plans. This is also Burgoyne?s well-illustrated account of his famous Hudson Valley campaign, which ended in his surrender at Schuylerville and turned the tide by precipitating French entry into the Revolution on the American side. Burgoyne?s writing is interesting and historically of inestimable signifucance, by documenting one of the crucial moments of the American Revolution. The plans are beautifully drawn by Mr. Medcalfe and engraved by William Faden. They depict the troop positions at Bennington, Huberton, and the several battles near Saratoga. All with key positions and routes coloured by hand. The maps are: Map of the Countyy in Which the Army of Burgoyne Acted in the Campaign of 1777. Plan of the Action at Huberton. Postiion of the Detachment uner Leity. Col. Baum at Walmscock near Bennington. Plan of th Encampment at Swords House. Plan of the Encampment at Braemus Heights.
