         A New and Correct Chart of the Harbour of Havana on the Island of Cuba with a Plan of ye City &c. from an Actual Survey by Captain James Phelps

      c. 1760 - 42.5 x 54 cm. Ésta es una muy escasa carta náutica del Puerto de la Habana, Cuba, y uno de los más tempranos mapas de esta importante ciudad en publicarse en Inglaterra. Probablemente fue creado gracias al creciente interés británico en la isla de Cuba y el puerto de la Habana después de ocurrida la Guerra de la Oreja de Jenkins. También llamada Guerra del Asiento, se trató de un conflicto bélico entre los reinos de Gran Bretaña y España, que abarcó los años de 1739 a 1748. Se llevó a cabo principalmente en el Caribe, debido a que los británicos deseaban obtener la supremacía marítima en esta zona. El objetivo inicial de Gran Bretaña era conquistar la isla de Cuba, la mayor y más importante de las Antillas. Especialmente después de la catastrófica derrota que sufrió al tratar de tomar Cartagena de Indias en 1741, en la que una flota británica de 186 naves y casi 27 mil hombres fue vencida a manos de una guarnición española compuesta por unos tres mil quinientos hombres y seis navíos. Esta victoria por parte de España fue posible gracias a la extraordinaria eficacia de los servicios de inteligencia, que consiguieron infiltrar espías en la corte londinense y en el cuartel militar. Circunstancia que les permitió a los españoles defender Nueva Granada mejor de lo que los británicos habían pronosticado inicialmente. El cese de hostilidades fue posible en 1748 con la firma del Tratado de Aquisgrán, según el cual se retornarían todas las tierras conquistadas a sus gobernantes originales, antes del conflicto bélico. La guerra del Asiento supuso la mayor derrota sufrida por la Royal Navy en su historia, lo que aseguró la preponderancia española en el Atlántico y el Caribe hacia finales del siglo XVIII. El mapa está basado en el levantamiento cartográfico del Capitán James Phelps y el grabado corrió a cargo de James Mynde. Fue publicado en la ciudad de Londres y vendido por William Mount y Thomas Page en Tower Hill. Muestra con detalle, la bahía, el puerto, un plano de la ciudad amurallada de la Habana y la campiña circundante. Se puede apreciar la red hidrográfica y de caminos. Por su parte, el relieve está expresado de manera pictórica, con montes de perfil y sombreado, y abundante arbolado. Resulta llamativa su escasa toponimia, pero sí vemos presentes los sondeos de profundidad, los fondeaderos y los veriles para el seguro anclaje de las embarcaciones. También están trazados pequeños planos que indican las fortificaciones de la bahía. Dos rosas de los vientos orientan la carta con el norte dirigido hacia la esquina inferior izquierda, es decir, el suroeste de la hoja. En el ángulo superior derecho localizamos el sencillo pero interesante cartouche del título, decorado con motivos vegetales y coronado con tres figuras alegóricas que hacen referencia a las matemáticas, la navegación y la astronomía. En el ángulo superior izquierdo se ubica la cartela que contiene la clave numérica y alfabética que identifica los lugares más representativos. Esta leyenda da cuenta de las fortificaciones, el mercado, el palacio de gobierno, las puertas de acceso a la ciudad, entre otros sitios de interés. La escala está expresada en varas castellanas, a 32 pulgadas cada una. Coloreado a mano. Marca de la plancha visible. Buen estado de conservación. Es sumamente destacable que esta excepcional carta marítima no ha aparecido en los catálogos de los mayores comerciantes de mapas en los últimos treinta años.

         Nova relação do encontro que tiveram os Argelinos com hum navio Frances mercante: e noticia, que dahi resultou.

      N.p.,, ca. 1750-1760. - 4°, disbound. Caption title. Some small, relatively light waterstains at inner margins. In good condition. 8 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this Portuguese newsletter about the capture by Algerian pirates of a French merchant ship on its way from Cadiz to Marseilles. The French consul at Algiers, protesting the enslavement of the crew, was ineffectual until word came that Louis XV was assembling a squadron at Toulon. The ruler of Algiers repented and returned the ship and captives. When this account was published, it was unknown whether the squadron would be dispersed or sent to attack Algiers. The author, who clearly believes a show of force against the Barbary pirates is long overdue, cites the events of the 1680s, when Louis XIV sent a squadron to bombard Algiers, resulting in a 1690 treaty with France that protected its shipping for many years.*** Not in Innocêncio.

         Antique Master Print-ROMANCE-FRENCH COSTUME-MARRIAGE-LOVE-Maucler-Challe-1760

      - Plate : 'Quand l'Hymen dort, l'Amour Veille'. (When marriage sleeps, love wakes). This plate shows a romantic scene with 18th century French costumes. A woman slips a love-note to her paramour into the quiver of a statue of Cupid. The lover is watching in excited expectation from behind a tree, while the woman's husband is sleeping beside her. A stunning romantic print exhibiting the best of French Rococo art. Very rare. Stipple and line engraving with plate colouring, on a verge type handlaid paper. This impression is a good example of early colour printing, which was developed as a means of reproducing the effects of painting in oils. It exemplifies the single plate colour printing technique used in England, then adopted in France, at the close of the eighteenth century The effect is achieved by inking a single plate with several colours, using a rag stump, known as "a la poupee". Description: This masterprint was published in Paris by Vidal ca. 1760. Our definition of a Master Print is a seperately published print or series of prints, not being an illustrative print to a text. These can both be prints made by old masters (artists) or prints made by others (artists, engravers, etchers) after old masters.Artists and Engravers: This plate engraved by Maucler after Challe. Engraver: E. Maucler (active 1750-1770). Artist: Charles Michel Ange Challe (1718-1778) was a French painter, architect and mathematician. He was born in Paris, and studied under Andre, Lemoine and Boucher. Although he never gained much fame as a painter, as an architect and draughtsman to the king he directed numerous feasts on the occasion of the birth of Louis XVI, as well as the funerals of the Dauphin and Dauphiness, the King of Poland, the Queen of Spain and Louis XV. Condition: Excellent, given age. Two small tears in the bottom margin, backed with acid-free archival tape. A small crease in the bottom margin. None of this affects the image itself. General age-related toning and/or occasional light stains from handling. Please study scan carefully. Storage location: TPCLA-P6-15 TPC The overall size is ca. 17.7 x 13.8 inch. The image size is ca. 14.6 x 12 inch. The overall size is ca. 45 x 35 cm. The image size is ca. 37 x 30.5 cm.

         Histoire et phenomenes du Vesuve. Traduction de l'italien par m. l'abbé Peton.A Paris, chez Jean Thomas Herissant , 1760.

      A Paris, chez Jean Thomas Herissant 1760 - Cm. 17, pp. xxiv, 399 (1). Una cart. geogr. ripieg. f.t. dei dintorni di Napoli e cinque tavole ripieg. f.t. in fine al volume con vedute del Vesuvio. Il tutto inciso finemente in rame. Legatura coeva in piena pelle con titoli su tass. e fregi in oro al dorso, tagli rossi. Esemplare ben conservato. Prima edizione francese dell'opera "Storia e fenomeni del Vesuvio"; edita a Napoli nel 1755 e scritta dal fisico e naturalista romano Giovanni Maria Della Torre (1712-1782). L'abate Peton non si limitò a tradurre il testo italiano, ma ampliò il testo aggiornandolo fino ai fenomeni eruttivi del 1760, proprio con la collaborazione e grazie a dati forniti dallo stesso Della Torre. L'opera, che poggia le basi sulle prime osservazioni erudite di Plinio e fu ben accolta negli ambienti scientifici del tempo, si configura come la prima storia generale del Vesuvio. Cfr. Iccu.

         American Mathematical Textbooks 1760-1850 : Collection for sale

      1760-1850. A substantial collection of American textbooks of arithmetic, algebra, and geometry, including representative selections of primers combining lessons in spelling, reading, and writing with arithmetic, designated for use in schools, academies, and lyceums; textbooks of natural philosophy, astronomy, and mathematical geography specified for use in colleges; and ready-reckoners and other books of tables intended for tradesmen. Although textbooks for all levels of instruction are offered, the collection is strongest in those prepared for use in elementary and secondary schools. The reform of mathematical education through the introduction of "Pestalozzian" or child-centred methods of instruction is thus amply documented. The collection was built using as a guide Louis C. Karpinski's magisterial Bibliography of mathematical works printed in America through 1850 (Ann Arbor 1940, with three supplements published 1941-1954). Karpinski investigated the holdings of more than one hundred libraries and found that nine had purposefully collected in this field. According to his tabulated analysis, our collection would have occupied sixth rank, nearly approximating the holdings of Columbia University, exceeding those of Boston Public Library and New York Public Library. We offer 269 different works, plus 192 subsequent editions, for a total of 511 printed books, and in addition five manuscript ciphering and exercise books. Thirty-three eighteenth-century books are offered, fifty-five printed 1801-1810, sixty-five printed 1811-1820, ninety-five printed 1821-1830, 129 printed 1831-1840, 124 printed 1841-1850, and ten printed post-1850. Forty-one books in the collection are editions not recorded by Karpinski. Twenty-six books represent editions not yet recorded in the American Bibliography 1801-1819 (New York 1958-1966) and Checklist of American Imprints 1820-1844 (New York, Metuchen & London 1964-1993), the principal bibliographical tools available for the study of nineteenth-century American books. Another seventeen books in the collection have imprints different to those stated in the Checklist. With few exceptions, the books are offered in original condition and in original bindings, and the collection is thus of interest also to historians of the book. Textbooks published in the period before 1820 commonly were offered in three styles of binding: scaleboard (a shingle of wood, backed with leather, finished with either blue paper or marbled paper on covers), leather-backed boards covered by marbled paper, and full leather. In this collection, twenty books are in scaleboard bindings, forty-five in paper boards finished with marbled paper, and 259 in full-leather, the most expensive (and durable) binding. About 1820, a type of publishers' binding with printed covers became popular. Eighty-nine books are in such bindings, the earliest published in 1815, and several of these binding contribute valuable bibliographical evidence. A few books still retain coverings in cloth and paper fashioned by pupils to protect them from wear. As a rule, textbooks have been inscribed, drawn-on, or otherwise marked, more consistently than most books, by readers who are not usually purchasers. Few owners failed to write at least their names on the endleaves; many pupils added incantations against borrowers and thieves of books, sentimental verses of affection to other students, comments upon their classmates and teachers, drawings, rubbings of coins, pen trails and scrolls. Textbooks preserved in libraries are routinely rebound and this evidence of ownership discarded, to the detriment of scholarship. For example, forty books in this collection have ownership inscriptions by girls. When mathematics became inserted in the elementary curriculum, it was taught to boys and girls alike, however girls did not progress to study algebra and geometry. Ownership entries in books in this collection suggests that the moment of transition, when the stereotype of the non-mathematical feminine mind eroded sufficiently for algebra and geometry to be taught to girls, occurred about 1840. This early date contradicts suppositions about the elementary curriculum made recently by several historians. For additional information, click the PDF icon above.
