      en casa de Jean Stada, Paris 1726 - 26 planchas grabadas al cobre. Cubiertas originales en cartoné. Rara cartilla de dibujo de José de Ribera, que sirvió de guía a todos los alumnos y profesores desde finales del siglo XVII y todo el XVIII. En 1650 vieron la luz por vez primera en Paris 24 de las planchas. A mediados del siglo XVIII la Calcografía las imprimió en España, grabadas esta vez por Juan Barcelón. Dice Cean Bermúdez en su "Diccionario histórico de los más ilustres profesores de Bellas Artes": "Fue el Españoleto uno de los más insignes pintores naturalistas que ha habido. Aventajose a su maestro -Caravaggio- en el dibuxo e igualó su fuerza en el claro oscuro. Ninguno hubo más adicto al natural pues expresaba hasta las arrugas y demás accidentes del cuerpo humano. Son 26 las estampas que grabó al aguafuerte con delicadeza y corrección." Buen ejemplar, en su estado original. Mancha de humedad en las primeras 4 planchas, el resto en perfecto estado. Palau, 266906

         Ratio Disciplinae Fratrum Nov- Anglorum. A Faithful Account of the Discipline prosessed and practised; in the churches of New-England. With interspersed and instructive reflections on the discipline of the primitive churches

      Boston: printed for S. Gerrish in Cornhill, 1726. Small octavo, signed in 4s. (6 1/2 x 4 inches). [2],iv,10,207,[3]pp., including contents leaf. (Minor spotting, occasional small tears to margins ). Contemporary American brown morocco, covers panelled in blind, the inner panel with small flower-spray tools at each corner, the flat spine divided into compartments by intermittent rolls in blind. In a half morocco slipcase. Mather reviews church principles - a key work of New England church history. One of Cotton Mather's most important works and an "important exposition of the tenets of Congregationalism that carefully reaffirms the principles of the Cambridge Platform" (Streeter). Holmes reveals that although published in 1726, the work was actually written in 1701, quoting from Mather's Diary from October 3 of that year: "About this Time I finished a Work, which cost me much Time, and Care and Study. I wrote in a Book of above an hundred pages in Quarto, an account of the Principles and Practices of the Churches of New England. But I embellished it all along, with a further Account of what was done in the primitive Churches, which required some exquisite labor. I concluded, that a Book of this Importance, would have a mighty Tendency, to preserve the holy Discipline in our own Churches, from the Dangers of the Apostasy which may threaten it, and promote the Designs of Reformation abroad in the world." Holmes reviews and explains the many delays in Mather publishing the work, the addition of Increase Mather's Attestation dated 1719 and the eventual publication in 1726. The final publication was nearly derailed as the original manuscript was scattered by a strong gust of wind, with the loose sheets finding their way into the garden, the wood pile, and strangers's hands. That every page was recovered without the loss of a single sentence was, as Mather reveals in a letter to Thomas Prince, a sign that the "Angel of the Lord Look'd after it ... I don't wonder that such a work must be brought forward with a Struggle. Tis a sign, tis for the Kingdome of God!" (quoted in Holmes). This copy with important provenance to John Cotton (1693-1757), the minister of the Church in Newton and the great grandson of Puritan divine John Cotton (1585-1652), the maternal grandfather of Cotton Mather.

         de l'Europe dans les Indes orientales. Partie Du Gange ou Sont Les Etablissements du commerce des Nations

      Eugene Henry Fricx,, Brussels, 1726 - Rare separately issued map of the mouth of the Hoogly River Engraved map on two sheets, fine original hand-colour. Detailed map of the mouth of the Hoogly River.The map extends from the mouth of the river to the city of Hoogli-Chinsurah (Hugli). All the major settlements are highlighted along the river including the European factories: the English at Calcutta or Kolkata (Coulicassa); the Dutch at Chinsurah (Sinsura); and the French at Chandannagar (Chandengor). The map is based upon the writings and observations of the Jacques AndrÈ CobbÈ, an envoy of the company established at Antwerp. The company in question was most probably the Ostend East India Company. The company was set up in 1715, when the Austrian Government decided to issue licences for trade with the west and east indies to merchants in Ostend, Antwerp, and Ghent. The company's extistance was short lived as it met with significant resistance from the well established national company's of England, Holland, and France. In 1727, in an act of political expediency by the Austrian authorities the company's licence was revoked. Below the map is a fine panorama of the Hoogly.

         THE HISTORY OF THE WARS OF NEW-ENGLAND, WITH THE EASTERN INDIANS. OR, A NARRATIVE OF THEIR CONTINUED PERFIDY AND CRUELTY

      Boston: Printed by T. Fleet, for S. Gerrish...and D. Henchman..., 1726.. [2],iv,[2],134,[1]pp., including in-text woodcuts. 12mo. Antique-style speckled calf, ruled in gilt, spine tooled in gilt with raised bands and a gilt morocco label. Titlepage has been backed with paper, expertly repairing a small tear in the center foredge, with two letters in the date "1725" in fine facsimile. First text leaf repaired in margins, as are leafs S1 and S2, resulting in loss of a few letters of text. Text trimmed quite close, occasionally shaving a page number or the outer letter of a line of text. "Advertisement" (i.e. Errata) leaf in expert facsimile, as is almost always the case with this book. Still a very good copy overall. One of the primary sources for the early Indian wars of New England, describing the fighting on the northern and eastern borders of Massachusetts during Queen Anne's War of 1703-13 as well as fighting in 1722-25. Vail calls it an "excellent history," and Field adds that Penhallow's "work on the Indian wars is esteemed as the highest authority on that subject." Penhallow, although having gone to Massachusetts as a missionary, became a chief justice of the colony, and as such was in an excellent position to know about colonial military affairs. A very rare book, accorded a "c" rating by Howes. Vail calls it an "excellent history," and Field ranks it "among the rarest of New England imprints." HOWES P201, "c." CHURCH 904. EVANS 2796. SABIN 59654. FIELD 1202. STREETER SALE 674. VAIL 351.

         Les avantures de Telemaque fils D’Ulysse. Par feu Messire François de Salignac de la Motte Fénelon, Précepteur de Messeigneurs les Enfans de France, & depuis Archevêque-Duc de Cambrai, Prince du saint Empire, &c. Nouvelle édition conforme au manuscript original. Enrichie d’un grand nombre de figures en taille douce. Avec des Remarques pour l’eclaircissement de cet Ouvrage

      chez J. Tonson, a l’enseigne de Shakespear dans le Strand; & J. Watts, a son Imprimerie dans Wild-Court pres de Lincolns-Inn-Fields, MDCCXXVI [1726], A Londres - The Second Edition published in England, based upon the extensively corrected, enlarged and reconceived Paris edition of 1717. 12mo; [18], xxviii, [4], 468, [12]pp, with a portrait frontispiece of Fenelon, title page in red and black, folding map tracing Telemachus's travels throughout the Mediterranean, and 24 full-page copper-engraved plates, one at the head of each book (in reconceiving the work for the Paris edition, the author's grandnephew divided the story into 24 books conforming to Homer's "Iliad"). Contemporary sprinkled calf, the spine richly gilt in six compartments divided by raised bands with a red morocco lettering piece gilt in the second. End papers lightly spotted, but all else generally clean and bright; archival repairs to tears on two leaves (no loss of text); joints very skillfully (almost invisibly) repaired, with the binding now sturdy and secure. Collated and complete with the often-suppressed "Ode" and the two leaves of advertisements at the start of the book. ESTC Citation No. T139621. OCLC Number: 504521029. A scarce edition, with OCLC locating only one copy (in the British Library) and ESTC just five others. Fénelon, Archbishop of Cambrai and tutor to the seven-year-old Duc de Bourgogne (grandson of Louis XIV and second in line to the throne) published this didactic novel anonymously in 1699. The slender plot fills out a gap in Homer's Odyssey, recounting the educational travels of Telemachus, son of Ulysses, accompanied by his tutor, Mentor, who is arguably the book's true hero. Mentor denounces war, luxury, and selfishness and proclaims the brotherhood of man. Though set in a far off place and ancient time, Télémaque (and Mentor's pronouncements) was immediately recognized as a satire on the autocratic reign of Louis XIV, whose wars and taxes on the peasantry had reduced the country to famine. Predictably, Louis banished Fénelon from Versailles, confining him to his diocese, where he remained, with few exceptions, for the rest of his life. Nonetheless, Télémaque was an immediate best seller both in France and abroad, translated into every European language and even Latin verse. It inspired numerous imitations and supplied the plot for Mozart's opera, Idomeneo (1781). It was also a favorite of Thomas Jefferson, who reread it frequently.

Frontispiece, t.p. in red and black, lacks frontis. to second part., has plate of stones facing p498. Glanville (1636-80) became chaplain to Charles II. "His interest in the occult was fostered by his belief that science could explain the supernatural, and was reinforced by his personal experience of the drummer fiend of Tedworth...It is easy to laugh at Glanville's gullibility; yet theoretically he tried to be skeptical and objective, and to sift the evidence for the supernatural in the anecdotes told him. In this respect he may be regarded as the father of modern psychical research." R.H. Robbins Henry More (1614-87) spent his life in the confines of Christ's Church College, Cambridge emerging only for Lady Ragley's séances and local witch trials. He is one of the leaders of the Cambridge Platonists but also was a staunch defender of the belief in witchcraft. "No English writer accepted so completely and unreservedly the whole paraphernalia of witchcraft constructed by such men as Remy and Bodin." R.H. Robbins. ESTC t103255. Caillet 4562.

      C.Bathurst - London - - Each 9 x 14 - Uncoloured - Five fantastic maps of various regions of the world visited by Lemuel Gulliver in his travels as described by Jonathan Swift in his renowned satire that was first published in 1726. Swift was known to be an acquaintance of the mapmaker Herman Moll and it is quite likely he originally mapped Swift's conceptions. These, later editions, are unsigned but are based on Moll's originals. Map one shows the island of Lilliput, to the south-west of Sumatra; map two shows Brobdingnag, north of California; three shows various islands to the east of Japan; four depicts Houyhnhnms Land off Lewins Land; and map five shows the island of Balnibarbi.

      London: John Watts, 1726 - Octavo (193 × 111 mm). Contemporary panelled calf, neatly rebacked, red morocco label, edges sprinkled red. Housed in a tan quarter morocco slip case, in limp cloth chemise. Bookplate of Frank S. Streeter to front pastedown. Slightly rubbed, conjoined wormholes through the front free endpaper and first few leaves, including the frontispiece and titlepage, light browning, but overall very good. Engraved frontispiece of a ship attacked by natives, by van der Gucht, head- and tailpieces. First edition. "Howes points out that Boyle's narrative must probably be a work of pure fiction, and certainly any reading of the novel supports his contention. Like the Thousand and One Nights, the novel is a series of tales, each new story prompted by a character in the last" (Imaginary Voyages). Sabin states that Castelman's narrative, which is distinguished by having a separate title page, "bears the mark of authenticity." In ODNB, where the present work is unequivocally identified as a novel, Chetwood is described as "an active but minor participant in the theatrical and publishing worlds of the first half of the eighteenth century. He knew everyone, travelled everywhere, and explored every conceivable avenue to financial stability, only to fail." Cox II, p.478; Howes C-355; Imaginary Voyages in Prose Fiction, 107; Sabin 12553.

Also, two Authentick, but wonderful stories of certain Swedish Witches. Done into English by Dr. Horneck. With some account of Mr. Glanvil's Life and Writings.' Glanvil wrote Saddicismus Triumphatus as a refutation of works by skeptics such as John Webster, and in it sought to 'put the belief in apparitions and witchcraft on an unshakeable basis of science and philosophy.' The book attracted considerable attention with Kittredge further observing that 'No other English work on the subject had a more powerful influence.' Binding sound with virtually no signs of wear, though the binder has mis-spelled the author's name "Granvil" rather than "Glanvil." Recent marbled endpapers. A few pages roughly opened with light chipping at edges and upper corners, some scattered light damp marks to the first and last few leaves, faint blue mark to lower corner and outer edges of a few pages - perhaps offset from a desk blotter (not affecting text).

         Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World. In Four Parts. By Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon

      - London: Printed for Benj. Motte, 1726. 4 parts in two volumes (as issued), octavo. (7 1/2 x 4 5/8 inches). Engraved portrait frontispiece, 6 engraved maps and plates. Contemporary panelled calf, spine with raised bands, morocco lettering pieces in the second compartments. Neat repairs to hinge of vol. 1. All within a modern black morocco-backed box. First edition, second issue of this 18th century masterpiece of English literature: both the greatest of all satirical fables and a classic children's tale. This copy is a first edition, Teerink's "AA" issue, with the portrait of Gulliver in the second state as usual. Unusually, both volumes conform to Teerink's AA, with that issue more commonly found with a Teerink B of the second volume. Swift's best known work was published anonymously. Written in Dublin between about 1720 and 1725, the finished manuscript was brought to England by Swift when he left Ireland for London in March 1726. During his visit he stayed with friends, including Alexander Pope. Pope, along with John Gay and John Arbuthnot, helped Swift arrange for the publication of the book which was first published on 28 October 1726. Even after its publication Swift kept up the public pretence of having had no hand in it, but the immediate popularity of the work can be gauged from the fact that there were four printings within a year, as well as translations in French, German, and Dutch.

         A comment on forty two histories discribed [sic] by Hippocrates in the first and third books of his Epidemics. In the first part Hippocrates's pathology is explained, and defended; and his notion of fevers, their causes, several crises, and the particular states of the air, which disposes to the several epidemics, are described. In the second part are fourteen histories of the first book of the Epidemics. In the third part are twenty eight histories of the third book of the Epidemics. The general method of curing an epidemical fever is deduced from Hippocrates's histories; and since the bark may be successfully used after imperfect crises. By this method we may accommodate the old and new practice in the cure of fevers. To which is added a letter, to shew that Hippocrates mentions a year of 360 days, which is Daniel used, chap. IX. and that prophecy is explained from the copy of it in the Septuagint

Pool after A. Coypel. (8), XXXVIII, (2), 2032 col. (=1016); 2000 col. (=1000); (4), 1032 col. (= 516), 676 col. (=338) pp. First Amsterdam-edition, and the first to be enlarged with the Supplement, of the encyclopedia of commerce by Jacques Savary (1622-1690), most famous economist of his time, published posthumously by his brother, Philemon Louis Savary. Jacques Savary was for some time director of the French Royal Domains, and then became general business agent to the Duke of Mantua. He had such sound notions about commerce and was so successful in his operations that Colbert appointed him in 1670 in the "Conseil de la Reforme", which was to reform and refine the rules of commercial practice. The "Commercial Code" of 1673 resulting from it was called after him "Code Savary". He was then also pressed to write down and publish all his commercial knowledge, a request which he honoured with Le parfait Négociant, published in 1675. It taught everything a merchant should know, but only his left papers opened to the world the hoard of universal knowledge on commerce Savary possessed. Edited and published by his brother after his death, the work still proved invaluable for all people concerned. At the end of the first volume an index is added of names of all places referred to in the general lemma "Commerce", first of the names of French places, then of the names of all other places in Europe, Africa, Asia, and America, covering 52 pages, printed in three columns. And in the Supplement under "Commerce" a complete survey is presented of all goods traded at Marseilles in 1688, listing qualities, quantities, prices, places of origin and destination, transport by sea and land, raw materials and industrial products, with at the end a comparison added between prices in 1688 and 1727. The work also includes models of invoices and book-keeping. Savary was one of the pioneers of modern business economy, and his works still remain classics in their field. Fine set. Bierens de Haan 4136-7; cf. Kress 4584 (new ed. of 1741); Einaudi 5099 (1st ed. of 1723 of the first two vols. only). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Den Haag, Pierre Gosse, 1726. - Large folio (300:455 mm). 4 parts in 1 vol. (6), 115, (1), (2), 46, (2), 38, (2), 16, (4) pp. With engr. portrait, engr. frontispiece, 204 engr. plates (numbered as 230), and 12 engravings in the text. Contemp. calf with giltstamped label to richly gilt spine. This edition of Palladio's principal work follows Inigo Jones's 1715 English edition and is regarded as one of the best, due to its small-scale illustrations. "Opere di un enorme dispensione per sua ricca e laboriosa esecuzione" (Cicognara). The "Architectura", first published in 1570, exercised an almost unrivalled influence on European architecture for centuries. - Copy from the personal library of the great Viennese architect Heinrich von Ferstel (1828-83) with his bookplate on the front pastedown. Ferstel is regarded as one of the most important representatives of Neoclassicism and was a leading architect of the Vienna Ringstrasse. - Later in the library of the Munich architect Heinrich von Hügel (d. 1899), who usually employed Italian Renaissance designs. - Binding slightly rubbed; front joint split. Interior very clean and with only very slight marginal browning. Very attractive copy of this splendidly illustrated icon of the history of architecture, with important provenance. Cicognara 596. Fowler 225. Graesse V, 108. Kat. der Ornamentstichslg. Berlin 2599. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
