With woodcut illustration on title-page, a nearly full-page woodcut on its verso, and 7 illustrations in text (4 engraved and 3 woodcut). 19th-century half parchment.

Illustrated first and only separately published edition of the account of Van Neck's second voyage to the East (1600-1603), kept by Roelof Roelofsz. In 1600 the Dutch navigator Jacob Cornelisz. van Neck set out on a second voyage to the East, reaching Java in March 1601. From there he sailed for the Moluccas where the Sultan of Ternate visited the ships and accompanied the Dutch when they attacked the Portuguese fortress in Tidore. Afterwards Van Neck proceeded to China arriving near Macao, where a sloop, set out to determine whether the ships could move closer to the shore, was captured by the Portuguese in full view of the Dutch ships, standing by helplessly because of the contrary winds. Unable to help his crewmen and running short of supplies Van Neck sailed for Patani. Despite de the fleet's long stay there, Roelofsz. wrote very little about Patani. Commelin, however, added a long and interesting description of Patani, Siam and Malacca, as well as a brief account of the voyage of the three remaining ships from Van Neck's fleet written by Cornlis Claesz.With a very tiny water stain in the lower right corner of the first four leaves and a small corner torn off of leaf A3 not touching the text, otherwise in very good condition. Sides of the binding a bit rubbed. Illustrated account Van Neck's second voyage to the East.

        Rélation du Voyage à la Recherche de La Pérouse , fait par ordre de l'Assemblée Constituante, pendant les annees 1791, 1792, et pendant la 1ere et la 2de anneé de la République Française

      Paris, 1800. Two volumes, quarto, and folio atlas; text volumes uncut; the atlas with engraved title, folding chart of the voyage and 43 engraved maps, and plates; in period-style cat's-paw calf, gilt, atlas bound to match in half-calf over marbled boards. A handsome set of the Labillardière account of the d'Entrecasteaux voyage. A handsome set of the Labillardière account of the d'Entrecasteaux voyage.This is the first edition of the narrative by the naturalist on the d'Entrecasteaux expedition, in which Australia was circumnavigated twice, and the islands surrounding investigated for traces of La Pérouse. The work is particularly interesting for its descriptions (and illustrations) of Tasmania, Tonga, New Caledonia, and New Guinea, and the Atlas contains outstanding views of these areas by the official artist Piron. Included is the first large depiction of the Black Swan. The 14 botanical plates, all by or produced under the direction of Redouté, the most famous of all botanical artists, include 2 of Eucalypts and 2 of Banksias.It was a notable voyage in itself, although also beset by tragedy: the commander, D'Entrecasteaux, died of a "dreadful cholic" shortly before the expedition collapsed in Batavia. There they learned of the French Revolution, and d'Auribeau, then commander, and the principal officers being monarchists, put themselves under Dutch protection, arrested the remainder of the officers, including Labillardière the naturalist, and Piron the artist, and disposed of the ships. D'Auribeau in turn died, and was succeeded by Rossel, who managed to return to Europe and later edited the manuscripts for the official account. The papers and natural history specimens were seized en route and carried to England, but in 1796, with the urging of Sir Joseph Banks, were returned to France under a flag of truce.Because Labillardière was a Republican, his account appeared first, while that of d'Entrecasteaux had to wait until the restoration of the monarchy. The atlas appeared a year earlier than the text.

Jahrhundert. - Wir können diese Vermutung nicht teilen. Die beiden Monogrammen weisen eher auf "Michelangelo Buonarroti fecit" und i"-nventit" hin. Zusätzlich sind unsere Exemplare in der oberen rechten Ecke arabisch numeriert. Die Typographie ist jedoch eindeutig dem späten 17. oder dem 18.

        RICHARDSON'S THEATRE.WHEN WILL BE PERFORMED A NEW ASIATIC MELO DRAME, CALLED THE AFRICANS OR, THE DESOLATE ISLAND.[caption title].

      London: Hughes, [nd, likely ca. 1800]. - Broadside, 10 x 7 inches. Printed on blue tinted paper, mounted onto a large later sheet. Near fine. Expertly matted, and protected with mylar sheet. An engaging broadside for a theatre performance centered around a drama called "The Africans." The scenery for the play is taken from the work of the intrepid British explorer, Mungo Park, and features views of the African coast and interior, "Omai's Cave," and warrior huts. The characters include Omai (an African Chief, evidently confusing him with the famed Omai from the South Seas), warriors named Wahedooa, Tongataboo, Tiaiarboo, and Kiahiargo, and a Princess named Terapo. The bill promises an evening in which "the retributive hand of Providence will manifest its abhorrence of Vice; and Virtue and Constancy eventually triumphant." A pantomime called "Harlequin Traveller; or a Trip Round the World" would also be performed, the whole evening culminating with a grand panoramic view of the Rock of Gibraltar.

KLASSIKER DER OSTEOLOGIE! - Erste deutsche Ausgabe von "De Penitiori Ossium Structura Commentarius" (Leipzig, Hartknoch, 1799) dieses klassischen Werkes der Pathophysiologie der Knochen in der Übersetzung von Theodor Gustav August Roose (1881-1803), einem der angesehensten Physiologen und Gerichtsmediziner seiner Zeit. - "Mit wahrem Vergnügen habe ich mich dem vom Herrn Geheimen Hofrath Loder mir angetragenen Geschäfte durch eine Verdeutschung gemeinnütziger zu machen, unterzogen, zumal da diese Uebersetzung, die in dem selben Verlage mit der Urschrift erscheint, dadurch eine der seltenen Ausnahmen von der gewöhnlichen Regel macht, daß sie die (diesem Werk so wesentlichen) trefflichen Kupfertafeln nicht in einem fabrikmäßigen gearbeiteten Nachstiche, sondern im Originale liefert. . Durch Scarpa's Versuche ist es erwiesen, daß die gemeinhin angenommene Vorstellungsweise von einem aus Fasern und Plättchen bestehenden Baue der Knochen irrig sei, und daß sie vielmehr netzförmig und zellicht gebildet sind." Roose, Vorwort - Anton Scarpa (1847?-1832), war einer der vorzüglichsten Mediziner seiner Zeit. Reisen durch Frankreich und England, später auch mit A.Volta durch Deutschland. Scarpa war ein Meister der anatomischen Illustrationen die er selbst zeichnete um sie durch den von ihm angelernten, berühmten Faustino Anderloni stechen zu lassen. So sind seine anatomischen Blätter an naturgetreuer Unterscheidung der Gewebe, Richtigkeit der Formen und höchster Eleganz des Stiches hervorragende Muster anatomischer Darstellung. - - First German Edition of Srapa's treatise on the inner structure of bones. The plates show partly zootomic and partly pathologic representations of the texture of bones. - - Choulant, Anatom. Abb., 130; Chiari, in Neuburger-Pagel II, p.400; Waller 8549 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Voyage Pittoresque de la Syrie, de la Phoenicie, de la Palestine, et de la Basse Egypte. 1799-1800 - Copper engraving. Uncoloured. Size: 35 x 56 cm. (14 x 22 inches) Large paper copy. Fine condition. Mounted size: 55 x 74.5cm. Magnificent view of a coptic priest giving an audience to believers in a chamber in the pyramid of Chephren (Khafre), the second of the great pyramids. Louis-François Cassas was one of the best French printmakers of the eighteenth century. His Voyage Pittoresque de la Syrie, de la Phoenicie, de la Palestine, et de la Basse-Egypte is perhaps the finest eighteenth century illustrated book on the Middle East. Cassas accompanied Choiseul-Gouffier on his embassy to Istanbul in 1784 but remained there only a few weeks. From the end of 1784 to 1787 he travelled in the Levant, Syria and Egypt at Choiseul-Gouffier's expense, making more than 300 drawings. His drawings of Troad were engraved for volume II of Choiseul-Gouffier's 'Voyage Pittoresque'. His original drawings remained in family hands for many y ears, but were sold at auction in 1878. The drawings include studies of costumes, architectural pieces, monuments, views, scenes from daily life and animals. He was the greatest exponent of the Levant. This superb print is from the first edition, published in parts on large sheets. Engraved by Levasseur. Benezit, Vol. II, p.578. [Attributes: First Edition]

      . . Erste deutsche Ausgabe von "Memoire sur la guerison d'une Sciatique universelle" (Braunschweig, 1800). - Jean Girault war "churhannöverischer und braunschweigischer Hofzahnarzt" (Hirsch/Hübotter II, S. 760) u. beschreibt eine Heilung von einer "allgemeinen Gicht", die er 1794 in Bad Pyrmont selbst erlebt hat. Zum einen nutzte er die innere u. äußere Anwendung von Salzwasser, zum anderen fuhr er täglich zwei Stunden in "einem sanften Wagen" spazieren. Der Erfolg war außergewöhnlich gut, so dass er ein mechanisches Pferd erfand, das die Bewegung des Fahrens imitieren sollte. Die Beschreibung dieser "beweglichen Maschine" sowie ein Kapitel "Verstopfungen des Gehirns und der Ohren" bilden den Abschluß der Abhandlung. Es folgen Gutachten des Pyrmonter Badearztes Johann Erhard Trampel u.a. - Auf kräftigem Bütten gedruckt. Provenienz: aus der Privatbibliothek des Oldenburger Herzogs Peter Friedrich Ludwig, Prinz von Holstein-Gottorf (1755-1829), Titel mit gekröntem Stempel "PvH". Innengelenk vorne etwas angeplatzt.
