        An Histori-Geographical Description of the north and eastern part of Europe and Asia; but more particularly of Russia, Siberia, and Great Tartary; both in their ancient and modern state: together with an entire new polyglot-table of the dialects of 32 Tartarian nations: and a vocabulary of the Kalmuck-Mungalian tongue. As also, a large and accurate map of those countries . Written originally in high German . Now faithfully translated into English

      Printed for W. Innys and R. Manby, London 1737 - (8 7/8 x 6 7/8 inches). 1 large folding engraved map "Nova descriptio geographica Tattariae Magnae." (sheet size: 26 x 39 inches), 1 folding woodcut map, 1 folding letterpress chart, 10 engraved plates (3 folding), and numerous illustrations in the text. Expertly bound to style in contemporary marbled sheep, covers bordered with a gilt double filet, spine with raised bands in six compartments, red morocco lettering piece in the second compartment, the others with an overall repeat decoration in gilt First edition in English of a key work on Siberia, with the rare and important large folding map of the region. A Swedish officer taken prisoner during Charles XII's campaign in Russia, Strahlenberg was held captive in Siberia for thirteen years. Situated in Tobolsk from 1711 to 1721, he was able to explore the lower basins of the Ob and Yenisey rivers, gathering the geographical information regarding the northern and eastern parts of Europe and Asia recorded in this book and its large folding map. The text is of great importance offering much first-hand information -- geographical, historical and ethnographic -- about Siberia and Great Tartary. The work also includes early descriptions of the linguistics of the region, with a Kalmyv vocabulary including the translations of Mongolian words. The most important aspect of the present work, however, is Strahlenberg's rare and significant map representing the Russian realm and Great Tartary, containing extensive information regarding Siberia. Strahlenberg utilized a wide array of sources in preparing his map. He used his own latitude calculations, as well as readings he had taken with Daniel Gottlieb Messerschmidt, a Prussian naturalist with whom he travelled in Russia. Measurements and other geographic information were obtained from other sources as well, including Swedish officers on different expeditions, Swedish and German travellers, and Russian cartographers and explorers. The map, first published separately to accompany the Stockholm, 1730 first edition, is here re-engraved by R.W. Seale, and dated 1737. The map encompasses the area between 50° and 185° east longitude and 32° and 75° north latitude. It records the Russian territories from west of Moscow to Japan in the east and includes northern China, Tibet, and Turkestan in the south. Neighboring countries such as Poland, Persia, India, and Mongolia are documented. Numerous important geographic features are also represented: the Arctic and Pacific oceans, and the Caspian Sea; the Urals, Caucasus, and the Himalayan mountains; and the Gobi desert. The map is most notable, however, for its accurate representation of Siberia, particularly the settlement patterns of the region's various populations. Bagrow notes that after Semyon Remezov's map, Strahlenberg's map is the "most important source of historical-geographical information about Siberia." Cordier 2713; Cox I, 194; Lowndes III, 2528.

        Arminius an Opera as it is Perform'd at the Theatre Royal in Covent Garden. [Full score]

      London: I. Walsh, No. 605, 1737. First Edition, sole issue. Smith p. 20, 1. BUC p. 426. RISM H116. An opera in three acts to a libretto anonymously adapted from Antonio Salvi Arminio (1703, Pratolino), Arminius was first performed in London at Covent Garden on January 12, 1737. "Handel composed Arminio immediately after drafting Giustino, completing the 'filling-out' of the score on 14 October 1736. It was the first new opera in Handel's season of 1736-7 at Covent Garden Theatre, when for the last time his productions competed with those of the 'Opera of the Nobility' at the King's Theatre... Arminius has some very fine numbers, notably his noble declaration of faith to his country ('Al par della mia sorte'), with its suggestion of a chaconne bass, and his prison aria 'Vado a morir'. Thusnelda's 'Rendimi il dolce sposo', ending Act 2, is an attractive siciliana and Varus' expansive Act 3 aria 'Mira il ciel' makes evocative use of oboes and horns." Anthony Hicks in Grove Music Online. The present copy is of some interest (despite the lacking pages) for its musical embellishments to "Posso morir ma vivere" noted above.. Folio. Full modern dark red cloth, titling gilt to spine. 1f. (recto title, verso blank), 1f. (recto "a Table of Songs...," verso blank), 91, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved throughout. With singers' names printed within the score, including Strada, Hannibali (Annibali), Negri, Beard, Reinhold, Conti and Bertolli. With numerous embellishments in pencil to the vocal line of "Posso moir ma vivere" "Sung by Sigr. Conti" at the end of Act I to pp. 27-31 in a 19th century hand. Binding slightly worn; spine faded. Some signs or wear, minor stains, soiling, and mottled browning; minor loss to lower outer blank corners of first two leaves including title repaired; title reinforced at gutter; lacking pp. 35/36 (supplied in photocopy); also llacking the list of subscribers as in other copies cited by Smith. Small previous owner's name in ink to upper corner of front pastedown.

        The Motion of Fluids, Natural and Artificial; In particular that of the air and water: in a Familiar Manner proposed and proved by evident and conclusive Experiments to which are added many useful Remarks.

      Edward Symon, 1737., London: - 8vo. xvi, 369, [23] pp. 9 engraved plates, index, errata. Contemporary crimson gilt-tooled calf, later gilt-stamped leather spine label, raised bands, all edges gilt. Ownership inscription of D. Laing. SPECIALLY BOUND DEDICATEE'S PERSONAL COPY. Very good. Second edition, corrected and improved. The contents are made up on 67 chapters relating to statics, hydrostatics, syphons, pumps of various types, "fire-engines" [steam engines], motion of water in canals & pipes, specific gravity, hydrometer, pneumatics, barometer, air-pump, effects of air pressure on animal bodies, muscular motion, heart pressure, circulation of the blood, animal respiration & suction, elasticity of the air, cupping (bleeding), rise of sap in plants, thermometer, hygrometer, atmospheric phenomena, of winds, smokey chambers, causes of thunder & meteors, precipitation, and the origin of springs, sound (the trumpet instrument), and tides. â€" Roberts & Trent. / Indeed, the chapter on "The Art of Diving" makes clear the effect of increasing pressure as it affects the volume of a given amount of gas (Boyle's Law). Indeed, the relative volumes of air at 33, 66 and 99 feel (1, 2, and 3 atmospheres) are explicitly defined. This chapter, however, discusses the malady that we now know as Caisson's Disease or the Bends, but fails to explain the reason behind the resulting debility. The plates mostly deal with hydraulics, including siphons, water wells and decorative fountains. The author was apparently quite well known in his time as Benjamin Franklin cites Clare and this book in his own writings. Martin Clare was a London schoolmaster and Freemason. He … 'entertained' the members of the Grand Stewards' Lodge on 17 November 1735 with …an excellent Discourse containing some maxims and Advice that concerned the Society in general. Clare's grave and quiet method of delivery made a strong impression on the audience and [his] conclusion was received with loud approbation… [Stewart]. / Dr. Nicholas Hans (1888-1969), a renowned scholar of comparative education, writes that Clare founded the Academy in Soho Square, London, in 1717/18. On the title of this imprint Clare claims the degree "A.M." [Master of Arts], and in 1720 he was titled School-Master in Soho Square, interested in vocational training for boys. "In consequence the subjects taught in his school included (in Clare's order): Latin, English, French, Writing, Arithmetic, Book-keeping, Drawing, Geography, Mathematics (Mensuration, Gauging, Surveying, Navigation), Geometry, Astronomy, Experimental and Natural Philosophy and Algebra. In 1735 Clare published his well-known book on the Motion of Fluids. The copy in the British Museum gives some additional information about Clare. On the covering leaf there is a handwritten note, evidently by a contemporary, which states that when Clare was 'standing candidate for election into the Royal Society, it was objected that he sought that title to give a sanction to his profession of instructing Youth and to this productions: whereupon he declared that he would not make any public use of the said title'. He was duly elected F.R.S. and appeared in the List for the first time in 1736. He dedicated his book on fluids to Thomas Thynne, Viscount Weymouth, the Grand Master of the Ancient and Honourable Society of Free and Accepted Masons. Clare calls Thynne 'the patron and encourager of useful arts. . . Clare himself was a freemason. . . From the introduction to his book on fluids we see that Clare was a friend of Dr. Th. Desaguliers, the famous leader of Freemasonry and a pioneer of adult education. Clare says that he consulted Desaguliers on some points in the book, which was the result of a series of lectures to private audiences." â€" Nicholas Hans, New Trends in Education in the Eighteenth Century, Routledge, (1998). (pp. 87-88). / Hunter Rouse states, "For its time, this was an excellent textbook."â€" Rouse, Historic Writings on Hydraulics, 1984, no. 116. REFERENCES: Blak [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Notizie Istoriche e Critiche intorno alla Vita, alle Invenzioni, ed agli Scritti di Archimede Siracusano…

      By Giovanni Maria Mazzuchelli. Engraved vignette on title, two engraved headpieces, & four folding engraved plates. 8 p.l., 128 pp. Large 4to, cont. limp boards (a little soiled), uncut. Brescia: G.M. Rizzardi, 1737. First edition, the author's own large-paper copy, interleaved, and thoroughly annotated and corrected by him throughout. Mazzuchelli made the numerous additions, corrections, and annotations in preparation for a second enlarged edition which was never published. Mazzuchelli (1707-65), the celebrated Italian biographer and historian, wrote a number of important lives of Italian authors; this is his first book and concentrates on the various mechanical inventions, mathematical works, and hydrostatical problems of Archimedes. The final seven chapters are concerned with the corpus of the mathematician's writings: the various editions, commentaries, manuscripts, lost writings, doubtful writings, etc. On the interleavings and in the text, Mazzuchelli has made or added about 4400 words of additions and corrections, including entire passages inserted or cancelled, footnotes emended or enlarged, Greek translated into Latin, the correction of "typos," etc. It is clear that Mazzuchelli worked on this copy over a number of years: later changes and additions take the form of slips of paper tipped onto the interleavings, corrections corrected, additions made to additions, etc. The verso of the half-title bears his manuscript instructions (in trans.): "Wishing to prepare a new edition of this work, a portrait of the author [Archimedes] could be added at the opening of the volume, taking it from Vol I p. 183 of Thevet's History of the Most Illustrious Learned, in which he says it comes from an old bronze." A fine large-paper copy. On the front paste-down: "Ex libris Jo. Marie Mazzuchelli." Ownership inscription on same paste-down of Federico Patetta noting his purchase of the book at Modena from Prof. Ferdinando Jacobi. Neat signature of Giambattista Sardagna on title. The rare paste-down has notices to positive journal reviews published in Italy and Germany in 1740 and 1741. ❧ Riccardi, II, 145-"Bella e rara ediz.".

        Imperium Turcicum in Europa, Asia et Africa regiones.

      Artist: Homann Johann Babtiste (d) ; issued in: Nuremberg; date: (d)1737 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Left and right upper corners perfectly replaced, lower centerfold perfectly restored; - size (in cm): 49 x 58; - description: Decorative map shows the former Turkish Empire ( Ottoman Empire) with Greece, the eastern Mediterranean Sea, with Northafrica, Egypt, total Arabia, turkey, the Caspian sea to Tartaria. Figurative cartouche showing Süleyman I with his entouage.; - vita of the artist: Johann Babtiste Homann (1664-1724), Nuremberg, 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.

        The Gardeners Dictionary:

      London: Printed for the Author, and sold by C. Rivington,, 1737 & 1739. containing the methods of cultivating and improving the kitchen, fruit and flower garden, as also the physick garden, wilderness, conservatory, and vineyard; According to the Practice of the most Experienc'd Gardeners of the Present Age. 2 volumes, folio (345 x 227 mm). Contemporary half calf, raised bands to spine with 2 black labels, marbled sides, endpapers and edges. Engraved frontispiece and 8 plates, 3 folding, printed in double columns, illustrations in text. Bookplate of Sir Joseph Radcliffe to front pastedown in both volumes, ownership inscription of Thomas Percival to title page of vol. 2. Some scuffing to boards, a little wear to extremities and tips, a couple of marks to contents and a few marginal annotations, overall quite clean. A very good set. Third edition of the first comprehensive dictionary of gardening. Philip Miller (1691–1771) was the most distinguished and influential British gardener of the eighteenth century. His dictionary is a noteworthy milestone in the great sequence of encyclopaedias and dictionaries of that era, fit to rank with John Harris's Lexicon Technicum (1704), Chamber's Cyclopaedia (1728), Johnson's Dictionary (1755), the Encyclopaedia Britannica (1768), and ultimately the great French Encyclopédie (1751–1772) of Denis Diderot. Like Harris, Miller was a fellow of the Royal Society. He was a major contributor to Nathan Bailey's Dictionarum Britannicum (1730), which was the initial model for Johnson's Dictionary, and Johnson in turn relied heavily on Miller for his botanical entries. Johnson knew Miller personally: Boswell quotes him repeating Miller's approbation of the technical accuracy of Phillips's Cyder. The Gardeners Dictionary reached eight editions during Miller's lifetime. An appendix dating to 1735 is bound in at the end of this volume.
