      London, 1747. Full-Leather. Very Good. 3 vols.: Vol. 1: xxxvi, 607; Vol. 2: x, 612; Vol. 3: vi, 617 p. Vol. 1 has engraved frontispiece and engraved portraits of the author as well as Henry IV of France. Title page and a few other vignettes. Full leather with raised bands. Gold impressing on spines. Lower spine labels nearly completely chipped away. Some softness and tearing at spine ends. Worn and bumped. Hinges cracking. Labels and slight label residue on front pastedowns. Slight thumbing, soiling, foxing throughout. Volume I: Page 53 has chipped bottom corner. Small worm hole in rear board. Maximilien de BÈthune, duc de Sully (1560 - 1641) was a soldier, minister, Huguenot and superintendent of finances to Henry IV of France until that king was assassinated. His memoirs, written in the second person, are valuable as historical documents and as an autobiography - despite the fact that they contain many fictions, such as a mission undertaken by Sully to Queen Elizabeth I in 1601.

         Hecho por informe que hicieron los oficiales reales de la Villa Imperial de Potosi

      1747 - Marrying in the colonial administration. N.d. [1747]. N.p. [Lima]. In folio (284 mm x 196 mm). 1 [blank] + 28 leaves. Modern wrappers. Light toning, else very good. 1,200 $ Likely the first -and only- edition. Rare imprint concerning the legal case of a judge –Ignacio Antonio del Castillo- with the Real Audiencia de la Plata, who was suspended in the early 1740´s for marrying from a women native of his Audiencia, a union which required the express authorisation from the King. Castillo was later reinstated with all honours in 1746. The prohibition of marrying within the region where an officer was appointed was of a practical nature, and as such, could be overlooked against a fee to be paid to the Crown (Cf. Bridikhina: “Theatrum mundi; Entramados del poder en Charcas colonial”, p.117). Gomez Garcia was a legitimate son to Captain Jose Gomez Garcia and Luisa Flores de Villoria y Mondragon; Gomez Garcia scaled rapidly within the colonial administration of Peru, having been appointed as Fiscal de Charcas, Oidor for the Lima Audiencia (Cf. Lohmann Villena “Los minitros de la audiencia de Lima en el Reinado de los Borbones). Rare limenian imprint, only one copy sold at auction –this one- and only one copy in public institutions in Spain according to CCPBE. Medina, Lima 986. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Geschichte der Entstehung und Entwicklung der hohen Schulen unsers Erdtheils. Band 1 bis 4 komplett. [Von Christoph Meiners].

      VI, 402 VIII, 414, (2) IV, 416 IV, 394, (2) Seiten. Frakturdruck. 8 (20 x 13 cm) Dekorative Halblederbände der Zeit mit goldgeprägtem Titel auf dem Rückenschild, floraler Rückenvergoldung, Steinmarmorpapierbezügen und rotgefärbten Schnitten. [Hardcover / fest gebunden]. ADB XXI, 224ff. - Erman-Horn I, 670. - Heinsius II, 975. - Christoph Meiners, geboren 1747 als Sohn eines Postmeisters in Hemmoor, gestorben 1810, war Philosoph, Ethnograph, Professor der Weltweisheit in Göttingen und ein Vertreter der Popularphilosophie. Schon zu Schulzeiten gelobt für sein erzählerisches Talent entwickelte er bald einen fast monomanischen Drang des Lesens, Exzerpierens und Belehrens, der sich zeitlebens aus einem außergewöhnlich breiten Themenspektrum speiste. Meiners Werke zeugen von seiner Belesenheit, Fleiß und Interesse, zeigen zuweilen aber auch Spuren einer Übereifrigkeit oder wenig maßvoller Ambitionen so schrieb er sowohl 'Abriß der Psychologie' und 'Grundriß der Seelenlehre' als auch 'Versuch über die Religions-Geschichte der ältesten Völker, besonders der Aegypter', bald 'Grundriß der Geschichte aller Religionen', 'Grundriß der Geschichte der Menschheit' oder 'Grundriß der Geschichte der Weltweisheit', aber auch 'Geschichte des weiblichen Geschlechts', 'Vergleichung des älteren und neueren Rußlands', schließlich 'Historische Vergleichung der Sitten und Verfassungen, der Gesetze und Gewerbe, des Handels und der Religion, der Wissenschaften und Lehranstalten des Mittelalters mit denen unseres Jahrhunderts'. Sein Schaffen begann mit der Nähe zu esoterischer Philosophie und seine spätere Beschäftigung mit den Freiheitsrechten von "Negern und Juden" trieben recht eigenwillige Blüten. Während der Franzosenzeit informierte er als verdeckter Zuträger regelmäßig Johannes von Müller über politische Stimmungen und Vorfälle in Göttingen. Seine späteren Werke, wie die vorliegende Geschichte der hohen Schulen, besaßen dann die Stetigkeit und Umsicht, die frühere Schriften gelegentlich vermissen ließen. - Ehemaliges Bibliotheksexemplar mit entfernter Rückensignatur, Inventarnummern und Stempeln auf Vorsatz- und Titelblatt. Kapitale und Deckel schwach berieben, Ecken leicht bestoßen. Insgesamt sehr gut erhaltenes und erfreulich sauberes Exemplar des gesuchten und in diesem Zustand nicht häufigen Werkes zur Akademie- und Universitätsgeschichte, hier in schönen Halbledereinbänden.

The pattern was to become a familiar one : d'Alembert, Daniel Bernoulli, or Clairaut would pioneer a technique, and Euler would take it far beyond their capacity to develop it. D'Alembert's treatise on winds was the only one of his works honored by a prize and ironically, was later shown to be based on insufficient assumptions. D'Alembert assumed that wind patterns were the result of tidal effects on the atmosphere, and he relegated the influence of heat to a minor role, one that caused only local variations from the general circulation.

         A Compleat and Authentick History of the Rise, Progress, and Extinction of the Late Rebellion, and of the Proceedings against the Principal Persons Concerned Therein

      M. Cooper, London 1747 - First edition. [iv], 155, [1] pp., lacking folding chart. 8vo. Cross attributes this work to Fielding on the basis of an advertisement for The History of the Present Rebellion (1745) found in the second edition of Sarah Fielding's Cleopatra and Octavia (1758). Cross was unable to locate a copy and so attributed the present work to Fielding.

         Plan of a Dictionary of the English Language Addressed to the Right and Honourable Philip Dormer, Earl of Chesterfield; One of His Majesty's Principal Secretaries of State.

      London Printed for J. and P. Knapton, T. Longman and T. Shewell, C. Hitch. 1747 - Second Edition of Johnson's 'Plan' for the Dictionary and Printed to Coincide with the Publication of the Dictionary's First Edition [JOHNSON, Samuel]. The Plan of a Dictionary of the English Language. Addressed to the Right and Honourable Philip Dormer, Earl of Chesterfield; One of His Majesty's Principal Secretaries of State. London: Printed for J. and P. Knapton, T. Longman and T. Shewell, C. Hitch., 1747 [i.e. 1755]. Second edition, one of 1500 copies printed to coincide with the publication of the Dictionary in 1755. Although the date on the title-page is 1747, it was actually published in 1755. There are two states of unknown priority, one as present copy with figure "4" on page 4, the other with figure "8" on page 4. Octavo in fours (7 5/8 x 4 1/2 inches; 194 x 115 mm). [2], 37, 1, blank] pp. Bound in a "Miscellany" together with other pamphlets. The only copy we could find at auction came up at Sotheby's in 1989. Eighteenth-century quarter calf over marbled boards. Spine stamped in gilt with letter "J", and with morocco label, and lettered in gilt All edges speckled red. Overall a very good copy, and specifically the Plan pamphlet is fine. "The description that Johnson wrote for the booksellers and labelled 'A Short Scheme for compiling a new Dictionary of the English Language' became the first draft of The Plan of A Dictionary of the English Language, published in August 1747.The principal changes Johnson made in transforming the 'Scheme' into a published Plan appear to be intended to address aspects of a larger concern:the nature and imposition of the lexicographer's authority for linguistic decisions. The most obvious example of this preoccupation is the insertion of several direct differential references to Lord Chesterfield, to whom the Plan, unlike the 'Scheme,' is addressed.The Plan published in early August 1747, reveals several alterations and insertions made by Johnson which relate explicitly to Chesterfield and his apparent belief of desires for the language and an English dictionary." (The Making of Johnson's Dictionary 1746-1773, Allen Reddick, pg 17-19) This Plan was part of an strong marketing plan to entice buyers to the Dictionary. It was reprinted in Scots Magazine as well as advertised for in newspapers. The reprinted separate pamphlet version (present work) was to be distributed for free. However printing this was far more expensive than simply advertising and there were fewer copies printed that the Dictionary itself. Bound together in the Miscellany are the following contemporary pamphlets: 1. The Devil upon Crutches in England, or Night Scenes in London. A satirical work . Part I. By a gentleman of Oxford . The second edition. London: printed for Philip Hodges . 1756. 2. The Devil upon Crutches in England . Part II . London: printed for Philip Hodges . 1756.

         ROBINSONADE: NIL HAMMELMANNS, ALS TAPFERN NACHFOLGERS DES WEITBERUHMTEN SEE-LANDERS NIL STAIRS, FORTGESETZTE MERCKWURDIGE REISEN

      Erfurt: J. D. Jungnicol . 1747 - Small 8°, [1] engraved frontispiece, 429 pp. Text, as always mistake with numeration with lacking pp. 9-10, later marbled paper cover with green calf spine and edges, gilt embossed letter D on the cover, gilt raised bands and gilt title on red label on the spine, purple fore-edge (Very Good, frontispiece and title page mounted on old paper, tiny folds and tears in margins of end papers). A first edition of popular German Robisonade, which was reprinted in the following years, in a decorative binding. - This is a first edition of Nil Hammelmanns’s travels, printed in Erfurt in 1747. The frontispiece shows four maps of imaginary island. Although the title mentions the book was allegedly translated from Dutch, is this probably an original German text. The second edition of the work was printed in the same year by the same publisher, and was followed by sequences in the following years. Robinsonade - The story of Robinson Crusoe was based on a real life experience by a sailor Alexander Selkirk, who was marooned on Juan Fernández Island (today Robinson Crusoe Island ) for over four years, between 1704-1709. Upon his return a book based on his life was published with a title Fame of having lived four Years and four Months alone on the Island of Juan Fernandez, which inspired Daniel Defoe (circa 1660-1731) to write The Life and Strange Surprizing Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, Of York, Mariner: Who lived Eight and Twenty Years, all alone in an un-inhabited Island on the Coast of America, near the Mouth of the Great River of Oroonoque; Having been cast on Shore by Shipwreck, wherein all the Men perished but himself. With An Account how he was at last as strangely deliver'd by Pyrates. This first edition of Robinson Crusoe was supposed to be only an unimportant entertaining book. It was Defoe’s 412th publication and he wrote it, because he needed money for his daughter’s wedding. It was published anonymously on April 25, 1719, and war republished in on May 9, June 4, August 7 etc without definitive manuscript. The book was a major success and soon many different variations of text with various names and stories appeared in different languages. The stories varied from entertaining and educational to moralising. The word Robinsonade was first invented by German writer Johann Gottfried Schnabel in the Preface of his 1731 work Die Insel Felsenburg (The Island Stronghold). We would not trace any other examples from the series in the auction records for the past two generations. The book is also not mentioned in the bibliography on the Robisonades by Ullrich in 1898. References: Hayn/G. III, 56f. u. V, 388; Ullrich, p. 135-136, no. 1; Diana Souhami, Selkirk's Island, 2002.

      15 Bll., S. [31]-288 [so kmpl.], Kl.-8, Pappband d. Zt. mit Rückenschild Ackermann III/109. - Der ungenannte Kompilator der vorliegenden Ausgabe soll der hessisch-darmstädtische Oberlandkommissar Sigmund Heinrich Güldenfalk gewesen sein, was sich allerdings nicht belegen lässt. Der Anhang enthält ein "Philosophisches Sendschreiben, Vom rechten und wahren Steine der Weisheit: Worinnen der ganze Proceß des philosophischen Werks aufrichtig angewiesen wird." Die Basis des von Hermetikern sehr geschätzte Werk erschien 1747 (vgl. Brüning 4519) als Nachdruck der "Idea Chemiae" von 1690. Dazu schreibt Hermann Fictuld im "Chymisch-Philosophischen Probier-Stein" bei seinen Kommentaren zur alchemistischen Literatur unter Nr.30: "Der Author davon ist bekannt, er hat als ein ehrlicher, kluger und weiser Mann gehandelt, und hat der Ordnung nach des sel. Mannes Schriften extrahirt, und in gewisse Classen getheilet, so daß, was alldorten weitläufig zertheilet ist, allhier in die Nähe gebracht worden." - Jakob Böhme (auch Jacob, 1575-1624) griff auf seinen Gesellenwanderungen mystische u. alchimistische Gedanken auf, las die Schriften von Kaspar Schwenckfeld u. wurde bei seinen Schriften auch von paracelsischen Ideen beeinflusst. - Einband leicht bestossen u. berieben Rücken mit Teil einer Standortnr.

         Antique Print-NAUTICAL CHART-PACIFIC-TRADE ROUTES-CALIFORNIA-Bellin-1747

      1747 - Antique print, titled: 'Carte de la Mer du Sud ou Mer Pacifique ( )' - Nautical chart of the Pacific Ocean depicting the trade routes used by Spanish Galleons from Acapulco in Mexico to Manila in the Philippines. In particular this chart depicts the voyages of the Spanish Nostra Seigniora de Cabadonga and the British Navy Commodore George Anson. Anson succeed in capturing the Spanish treasure galleon off Cape Espiritu Santo on June 20, 1743. Following his capture of the Nostra the treasures were paraded through the streets of London.The map shows the pacific islands and much of the Mexican and California coast. Numerous important destinations along the California coast are named,including Cabo San Lucas, San Diego and Acapulco. Description: Source unknown, to be determined.Artists and Engravers: Made by 'Jacques-Nicolas Bellin' after an anonymous artist. Jacques-Nicolas Bellin (1703 - 1772) was one of the most important cartographers of the 18th century. With a career spanning some 50 years, Bellin is best understood as geographe de cabinet and transitional mapmaker spanning the gap between 18th and early 19th century cartographic styles. His long career as Hydrographer and Ingénieur Hydrographe at the French Dépôt des cartes et plans de la Marine resulted in hundreds of high quality nautical charts of practically everywhere in the world. A true child of the Enlightenment Era, Bellin's work focuses on function and accuracy tending in the process to be less decorative than the earlier 17th and 18th century cartographic work. Unlike many of his contemporaries, Bellin was always careful to cite his references and his scholarly corpus consists of over 1400 articles on geography prepared for Diderot's Encyclopedie. Bellin, despite his extraordinary success, may not have enjoyed his work, which is described as "long, unpleasant, and hard." In addition to numerous maps and charts published during his lifetime, many of Bellin's maps were updated (or not) and published posthumously. He was succeeded as Ingénieur Hydrographe by his student, also a prolific and influential cartographer, Rigobert Bonne. Engraving / etching on hand laid (verge) paper. Anonymous. Good, given age. A few brown stains upper right. Two small restorations on the folds. Edges with some tiny and small tears. Lower left margin partly remargined. Original folds as issued. Printed on 2 plates joined together. General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling. Please study scan carefully. The overall size is ca. 41.8 x 34.2 cm.

         Manuscript Document in Spanish, signed by Diego Antonio de Marrero addressed to Spain's Minister of State, José de Carvajal y Lancaster, dated 25 March

      Havana 1747 - Rare "Cubana"- Spanish take British ship Harrington, with ivory, sugar and timber-. Folio (210 x 300mm), 29 pages, string tied, written in very legible hand. Very good condition. AN ACCOUNT defending the management of the captured British Indiaman Harrington after its capture by a Spanish warship off Havana during the War of Jenkins' Ear (1739-1748). The crew was sent to Jamaica, the cargo of sugar, ivory, timber and other goods was sold off or used for the Spanish as thought appropriate and the ship itself was brought into Spanish service. A description of the capture of this ship is included in William Williams, The Journal of Llewellin Penrose, a seaman (London, J. Murray, 1815) a semi-autobiographical work which is considered by many as the first American novel. In it, the fictional author, Llewellin Penrose, had boarded the Harrington in 1746 on a voyage to Jamaica when it was seized by a Spanish 50-gun guarda costa, the Fuerte, and brought into Havana. He along with the rest of the crew was sent under a flag of truce to Jamaica. The War of Jenkins' Ear was largely a result of Spanish and British disagreements over the actions of Spanish guarda costas and British illicit trade in the Caribbean. It represented the first time that Spain and Britain went to war mainly over their respective positions in the Caribbean. The capture of the Harrington, its subsequent management by Spanish authorities and the resulting investigation is illustrative of the nature of the disagreement between the two countries. 29 pp páginas [Attributes: Soft Cover]
