        Uranoscopus Scaber. The Persian.

      Berlin. 1785-97. - Mounted size: 570 x 410 mm. Fine condition. Copper engraving. Original colour. Marcus Éliéser Bloch was born in 1723 in Anspach. He spent the earlier part of his career as a physician, studying intestinal worms. It was not until the age of 57, that Bloch turned to the study of fish, and set himself the task of providing full descriptions and illustrations of the species known to him. His first work focused on German fish and was entirely original, based on his own observations, reliable and thorough. His study of foreign fishes, however, was based on the works of others. Thus it was subject to many of the misconceptions that filtered through the great body of travel literature during the 18th century - presenting a range of illustrations with exacting accuracy on one hand or enticing imagination on the other. Bloch worked with a number of artists. Bloch's work is much sought after, and has endured to the extent that there are several editions of his work still in print today.

        "Prayers and meditations, composed by Samuel Johnson, LL.D. and published from his manuscripts, by George Strahan, A.M. The second edition."

      London: for T. Cadell. 1785. "8vo, pp. xv, [1], 233, [1] ads; contemporary full red straight-grain morocco, ornate gilt border on covers incorporating flowers and berries, gilt-lettered direct on gilt-decorated spine; very good. Fleeman notes that 1,000 copies were printed. Includes a Preface to the first edition of 1785, and adds three additional Prayers printed here for the first time, those of April 24, 25,l and May 6, ""composed by me on the death of my Wife, and reposited among her Memorials, May 8, 1752"" (pp. 10-15). At the end of his life, in 1784, Johnson had given the manuscripts to Strahan to publish, but Strahan censored passages where Johnson had expressed anxiety and uncertainty over his Christian belief. Strahan published what amounted to an expurgated edition in 1785. Chapman & Hazen, p. 163; Courtney & Smith, p. 159; Fleeman 85.8PM/3."

        ÉLÉMENS DE MINÉRALOGIE, TRADUITS DE L’ANGLOIS.

      Trad. Jacques Gibelin. Libr. Cuchet. París, 1785 - . 21,5 cm. XLVIII-432 pág. Enc. en pergamino, tejuelo. * El irlandés Richard Kirwan (1733-1812) realizó sus estudios superiores en Francia, donde comenzó a demostrar cierto interés por la química. Regresó a Irlanda en 1755 y, en 1777, se estableció en Londres, donde pasó diez años y se ganó una reputación como científico. En 1787 publicó Essay on Phlogiston and the Constitution of Acids, su obra más conocida. Dedicó también mucho tiempo al estudio de la meteorología e ideó una tabla que mostraba la temperatura de cada una de las latitudes entre el ecuador y los polos. Elements of Mineralogy fue el primer trabajo sistemático sobre mineralogía en inglés y la obra más importante del tema en el siglo XVIII junto a la de Widennman, y pronto se tradujo al francés y al español. La obra se divide en cuatro partes: tierras y piedras; sustancias salinas; sustancias inflamables; sustancias metálicas y un apéndice dedicado a las observaciones geológicas. Es también autor de Thoughts on Magnetism y de una obra que recoge sus puntos de vista acerca de la aurora boreal. Kirwan pasa por ser el introductor del estudio de la geología, la meteorología y la mineralogía en Irlanda, donde llevó a cabo varios experimentos. En total, dejó unos treinta y ocho ensayos dedicados a la meteorología, la química pura y aplicada, la geología, el magnetismo y la filología. En 1782 ganó la medalla de cobre dela Royal Society, de la que fue nombrado miembro en 1780. Cuatro años después fue elegido miembro extranjero de la Real Academia de Ciencias de Suecia. En 1799 fue nombrado presidente de la Royal Irish Academy, cargo que conservó hasta su muerte, y en 1801 fue elegido presidente de la Dublin Library Society. mineralogía. siglo XVIII Geologia, mineralogia, volcans i seismes Libros antiguos anteriores a 1830 francés [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Cernes de mouillure claire à quelques feuillets du tome III. EDITION ORIGINALE, complétée par l'abbé Teulière jusqu'en 1784. Elle contient dans le troisième volume l'"Histoire du siège de Montauban" (168 pages). Jean de CATHALA-COTURE (Montauban, 1711-1782), avocat et historien, s'est particulièrement intéressé à l'histoire de la province du Quercy. Il figure parmi les premiers membres de la toute jeune société littéraire fondée par Lefranc de Pompignan. Il participe activement aux travaux des académiciens où il devient le spécialiste de l'histoire des grands hommes de sa province. Il mérite d'être signalé pour sa curiosité précoce envers la "langue gasconne" et ses écrivains, s'intéressant à des auteurs occitans tels Ramon Jordan ou Jean de Valès. (Maurières et Passerat, 80).

There appears sufficient reason for bringing together in the third Class those Plays which relate to English History." [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THE NEW BOOK OF MARTYRS: OR, COMPLETE CHRISTIAN MARTYROLOGY . CONTAINING A FULL, AMPLE, CORRECT AUTHENTIC AND GENUINE HISTORICAL ACCOUNT OF THE MANY DREADFUL PERSECUTIONS AGAINST THE CHURCH OF CHRIST, IN ALL PARTS OF THE WORLD, BY PAGANS, JEWS, TURKS, PAPISTS, AND OTHERS .

      London: Printed for J. Cooke, No. 17, in Pater-Noster- Row, [nd. but ca. 1785]. - iv,5-466,[8]pp. Folio. Contemporary calf, gilt. Illustrated with 44 engraved plates (including the frontispiece). Boards detached, subscribers list bound out of sequence at end, a few small marginal nicks or light smudges, occasional foxing and a few marginal spots, upper margin of one plate stained, along with the upper fore-corner of another, and there's a narrow smear across the face of another, but an internally about good copy, with the majority of the plates very good or better. One of several variations upon this work published under Cooke's imprint, which, according to ESTC, was first published in parts in beginning in 1765, and from that format, reissued in book form with cancel titles. A note in ESTC assigned to one of the variants approximating the copy in hand reports Cooke's place of business was at the above address between 1783 and 1792; the present copy is the variant without 'at' preceding No. 17 in the imprint. It is possible that this work is actually by the miscellaneous writer and biographer Robert Sanders (ca. 1727 - 1783), who paid Southwell to attach his name to his work, THE UNIVERSAL FAMILY BIBLE, first issued in parts, and then in two volumes in 1773. This work is an amplification of Fox, updated to include events of the 17th and 18th centuries, with additional attention paid to Ireland, Scotland and the Americas. The engravings are signed as the work of Dodd, Stothard, and others, and like those executed for Foxe in the preceding centuries, may have been calculated as much for their sensationalism as for any potential for spiritual edification. The list of directions to the binder calls for only 40 plates. ESTC N50750.

      Venice. 1785 - Copper engraving. Original colour. Size: 42 x 33 cm. (16½ x 13 inches) Fine condition, good margins. An interesting map of part of the east coast of the US, with Cape Hatteras in the South East corner and the Ohio River in North West.

From the Atlante Novissimo.

        The Course of Delaware River from Philadelphia to Chester with the Several Forts and Stackadoes raised by the Americans and the Attacks made By His Majesty';s Land and Sea Forces

      printed for Wm. Faden, London 1785 - The Snyder copy of the third and final state of one of the most important maps of the Revolutionary War, depicting the dramatic military events that transpired on the Delaware River, just below Philadelphia This large scale and finely engraved masterpiece of military cartography embraces the Delaware River estuary from Philadelphia down to the town of Chester. In great detail, the map showcases the momentous events of November, 1777 when a British assault of combined naval and army forces struggled to wrestle control of the river from the Continental forces. In September, 1777 the British retook Philadelphia, the Continental capital and the largest city in the American colonies. However, they knew that their hold on the city would prove fleeting unless they managed to secure its access to the sea, which was blocked by a formidable American cordon militaire. The Americans could cover the entire width of the Delaware River with artillery, as they controlled Fort Mercer at Red Bank on the New Jersey shore, and the adjacent Fort Mifflin, on Mud Island in the middle of the river. Menacingly they also constructed stockadoes, or chevaux de frise, across the largest channel of the river, both under the American artillery positions at the aforementioned forts and at Billingsport, New Jersey. The placements were essentially caissons constructed in the river that were intended to ensnare and slow British ships, making them more vulnerable to attack. Their construction is depicted in diagrams on the lower-right of the map. The British mounted their assault in prongs from the south, one force under Lord Cornwallis captured Billingsport, before moving on foot to besiege Fort Mercer. The large inset in the upper-left shows the fierce canonade that ensued, that eventually forced the Americans to surrender Fort Mifflin on November 16th. As depicted on the map, the Continental fleet, the contents of which are listed at the lower centre of the map, mounted a brave resistance to the superior British force, but were overcome after intense ship to ship combat. After taking Fort Mercer, Lord Cornwallis' force continued on to Gloucester, New Jersey, where the Americans had torched the remainder of their fleet to prevent it from falling into British hands. The conclusion to the dramatic action portrayed on this map marked the high point of the British Philadelphia Campaign, as the city was now safely in their grasp. However, their victory was wasted. The British dithered in complacency, while the American forces under George Washington spent the following winter in legendary deprivation at Valley Forge. Washington's trial in the wilderness galvanized the morale of his men to mount a spirited campaign in New York the next year, the success of which eventually forced the British to abandon Philadelphia in an attempt to shore up their fortunes further north.

      G. C. Voigt 1785-1791, Bingii ad Rhenum - Sm. 4to.(25 cm). Full mottle calf, raised bands, gilt decorated compartments, morocco labels, marbled endpapers, all edges red. Illus. Noel Alexandre, or Alexander Natalis (1639-1724), was a French historian and theologian, of the Order of St. Dominic who studied philosophy and theology in the convent of Saint Jacques, Paris, where he taught for twelve years, obtained the licentiate from the Sorbonne, and in 1675, the doctorate, and was urged to write a complete history of the church, the first volume appearing in 1677. ?His directness and conciseness, his critical acumen, and his manner of viewing history and dividing it into special studies (then quite original, although now common enough) won for him the approbation of the learned. The first volumes of the history brought him letters of commendation and praise from Pope Innocent XI and many cardinals, but later volumes gave offense at Rome because of the author's Gallicism, and Innocent XI finally forbade the faithful to read .it," Cath.Ency. Alexandre corrected the work in the third edition. Constantino Roncaglia brought out a sixth edition, unaltered, but with the addition of paragraphs and dissertations correcting the most offensive statements. The work was thus removed from the Index by Pope Benedict XIII. The edition offered here is the best and most complete, edited by Giovan Domenico Mansi who added many explanatory notes. An anonymous writer in two supplementary volumes (also included here) carried the history into the eighteenth century, and added various dissertations from other historians. The work thus completed appeared at Venice in 1778, in eleven folio volumes, and at Bingen, 1785-91, in twenty volumes. Brunet I, 169. Spines and boards rubbed and scuffed, worn at extremities, heads and heels of a few volumes chipped, calf occasionally darkened or brittle mainly on spines, library call numbers to lower compartments, seminary book plate to front pastedowns, occasional bookseller's ticket, bindings tight, some scattered foxing otherwise leaves clean and unmarked.
