Tans'ur, William. (1700 - 1783)A New Musical Grammar, and Dictionary; Or, a General Introduction to the Whole Art of Musick. London: Robert Brown. 1756. Third Edition. 176 pp. Nicely bound in full modern brown leather. Binding a little rubbed, title page somewhat browned, but otherwise clean and sound and overall a fine copy. Tans'ur's New Musical Grammar, first published in 1746, went through several editions and was popular well into the nineteenth-century. "Beneath its rather grandiose manner it is a sound treatise of a conservative type, based on the medieval gamut and deriving much from John Playford's Brief Introduction, but well designed for the aspiring country church musician."

MYSTERIEUZE TULPENSCHILDER Tulpenaquarel van de hand van ?De Tulpenschilder?. Vervaardigd begin 18de eeuw. Afm. (papiergrootte): ca. 25 x 10 cm. Omdat de bloeitijd van tulpen in het voorjaar slechts enkele weken bedroeg, lieten tulpenbollen-handelaren vanaf eind 16e eeuw van de te verkopen bollen tekeningen maken, om de verkoop te stimuleren. Het papier van deze aquarellen is gedateerd rond 1700. Er zijn maar weinig tulpenschilders aan het begin van de 18e eeuw. Er blijft twijfel over wie ?De Tulpenschilder? is, maar er is een gerede kans dat deze tulpen gemaakt zijn door Maria Sybilla Merian (1647 - 1717). Maria Sybilla Merian kwam terug uit Suriname en moest in haar levensonderhoud voorzien. Dat zou ze gedaan kunnen hebben door het schilderen van tulpen zoals deze. Ze waren bedoeld voor een kunstboek, een soort catalogus waarin een veelheid van bestaande tulpensoorten waren bijeengebonden. Bij het schilderen is ze waarschijnlijk geassisteerd door leerlingen (zoals dat vaker gebeurde), misschien haar dochters. De bloembladeren zijn geschilderd door de meester, de bladeren aan de stengel zijn van een iets mindere hand. Soortgelijke aquarellen werden door Dr. Sam Segal toegeschreven aan Anthony Claesz (1592 - ca. 1635). Prijs: Euro 2.950,- (per stuk, incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling)

Gardiner, Robert
1700. Condition: Good. Handwritten transcription, bound in contemporary paneled calf, 224 numbered pages, plus transcription of title page, dedication, etc. In an early 18th century hand. Gardiner's book ran 494 pp, and with a catchword at the end of p. 224, we suspect that there was at least one other volume that the assiduous scribe set down. Having no knowledge of the economics of the book trade back then, we still think it would have been easier for the poor law student to buy a copy than spend the dozens of hours transcribing it, but who are we to say? With material on statutes governing witchcraft, as well as much discussion of sodomy and buggery (and the difference between the two) this is a remarkable object of both penmanship and as evidence of extreme labor. Binding is good, some amateurish gluing of spine and joints by previous owner, text good and readable.

TATE, Nahum (1652-1715)
London: printed by and for J. Roberts, 1700. First Edition. First edition of Tate's mock-heroic poem on the origins and virtues of tea-drinking. Crown 8vo: [16],34,[6]pp. Contemporary black morocco gilt cottage-roof binding, spine very richly gilt in six compartments between raised, period marbled end papers. Book label of bibliophile J. O. Edwards and book plate of corporate lawyer, investment banker, and bibliophile Robert S. Pirie on front paste-down. An excellent example in a very handsome period binding, several leaves lightly dust-soiled but generally clean and fresh throughout. Wing T202. Wrenn Library V, p. 6. Bibliotheca Bibliographici 3965. Like Pope's The Rape of the Lock, Panacea celebrates the civilized urban life of those who could afford such newly available imported luxuries as coffee, spices, and tea. "The best of Tate's own poems is 'Panacea: A Poem upon Tea.'" (Britannica) Tate was appointed poet laureate of England in 1692. "The Dictionary of National Biography gives Tate's occupation, without further qualification, as 'poetaster', and his changes to the plot of King Lear--which include the introduction of a love interest between Edgar and Cordelia, the omission of the Fool, and the contrivance of a happy ending in which Lear, Gloucester, and Cordelia all survive--have been regularly regarded as risible examples of Restoration obtuseness and poor taste."

Garth, S.
HANDSOME ASSOCIATION COPY OF THE DISPENSARY, AN EPIC POEM IN DEFENSE OF PUBLIC HEALTH, PITTING PHYSICIANS AGAINST APOTHECARIES IN 17TH CENTURY ENGLAND. 7 1/2 inches tall hardcover (octavo), frontispiece, xxii, 96pp (slight yellowing to title page, a few light, scattered spots, very good internally). Contemporary calf decoratively tooled in blind, raised bands, plain white endpapers (hinges tender, upper hinge starting, rubbing mostly to extremities, still attractive, very good overall). Bookplate of Henry Barton Jacobs pasted onto front paste-down. SAMUEL GARTH (1661-1719) was both a physician and a poet, and a fellow of the College of Physicians. On the last page of the Harveian oration at the College of Physicians, Garth alludes to a scheme, which had been discussed in the college from 1687, for establishing a dispensary where poor people could obtain advice and prescriptions from the best physicians. While a large majority of the fellows of the college supported this scheme, a minority allied themselves with the apothecaries of the city, who tried to defeat the plan, chiefly by charging exorbitant prices for the drugs prescribed. In 1699 Garth published The Dispensary, a Poem, which is a record of the first attempt to establish those out-patient rooms now universal in the large towns of England. The Dispensary ridicules the apothecaries and their allies among the fellows. It was circulated in manuscript, and in a few weeks was printed and sold by John Nutt, near Stationers' Hall. A second and a third edition appeared in the same year, to which were added a dedication to … [Click Below for Full Description]

The title page for the first part is dated 1700, the title page for the second part and the Hawkins dedication are dated 1760, so it seems to be the 1760 edition. the book is clean, tight, square and unmarked with contemporary spine covering of tan calf with five raised bands and bright gilt titles. The boards appear to be the original in brown leather and brass clasps at the fore edge. They have been rubbed to rounding at the corners. The front paste down has the name of John Bell Thirsk. The first part has 302 clear pages with occasional toning and some minor damp stain in the upper corner spine for a dozen or so page near the end. The second part has 128 pages plus an index. The frontispiece of part 2 is a plate of Cotton. Both parts are illustrated with black & white plates. The spine covering has been replaced making this a very handsome book. As this book is from the library of American Impressionist J. Alden Weir, the father of Caroline Weir (Caro Weir Ely), artist, print maker, book binder, there is a chance it was she who did this work.

[O'HEGUERTY, Pierre André].
Barbier II, col. 259; Einaudi 4196; Kress 5376; Sabin 31236; for the monogram: Olivier 870, no. 8. First edition of a study on the profits of maritime trade and commerce by Pierre André O'Heguerty (1700-1763), a Breton economist and maritime expert. The work is largely based on his own experiences, as he, since his marriage, owned a large coffee plantation on the island of Bourbon. During his stay there, O'Heguerty started to collect documents on maritime commerce. When his wife died in 1745, he returned to France, and published several books on this topic. The essay can be seen as a plea to the French Government, to promote maritime trade and commerce with the French colonies, instead of allowing foreigners to take away the profits.The binding contains the monogram "BB". Olivier shows this tool as the monogram of the prolific author Jean Paul Bignon, Abbé de St. Quentin, royal librarian and assiduous book collector. Bignon, however, died in 1743, eleven years before the publication of the present book. So it must be one of his descendants, who are also known book collectors.Internally in very good condition. Some minor damage to the hinges and the mottling has resulted in some damage to the boards, but the bindings is still firm and the tooling on the spine still clear.

George Sale The Koran
1700. I have here for a sale both volumes of the very early translation of the Koran into English. This is entitled THE KORAN COMMONLY CALLED THE ALCORAN OF MOHAMMED, TRANSLATED INTO ENGLISH IMMEDIATELY FROM THE ORIGINAL ARABIC; WITH EXPLANATORY NOTES, TAKEN FROM THE MOST APPROVED COMMENTATORS. TO WHICH IS PREFIXED, A PRELIMINARY DISCOURSE. BY GEORGE SALE. Published in 1764 by L Hawes, W Clarke and R Collins at the Red Lion in Pater Noster Row; and T Wilcox at Virgil's Head overagainst the New Church in the Strand. George Sale was a lover of the East who understood that Islam was best understood by Moslem writers and that Arabic history was best stated by Arab historians. He came to the subject without religious prejudice and genuinely wanted to satisfy the desire among Western scholars to understand Islam. Therefore his translation of the Koran is still appreciated three hundred years later as being exemplary. His preliminary discourse also gives an excellent history of the Arab peoples and the great expansion of Islam in the first century and thereafter - again drawing heavily on the Arab historians as opposed to just the Byzantine historians. Volume I contains a fold out map of Arabia with an inset map of Mecca; two fold out Genealogical Tables; a single page Genealogy; and a fold out plate showing a view of Al Caaba (the Kaaba) and a plan of the Temple of Mecca. Dedication to John Carteret 4 pages, To the Reader from Sale 10 pages; Preliminary Discourse by Sale 248 pages which displays an enlightened and objective attitude to the Arabs and their religion ; Fully bound i … [Click Below for Full Description]

"Novissima & exactissima totius orbis Terrarum Tabula Hand coloured copper engraving from the ""Atlas Maritimus Ofte Zee Atlas""?. Published in Nuremberg by David Funcke c. 1700. Size: 48 x 55 cm. David Funcke was a Nuremberg publisher, who commissioned works from Homann. This attractive and ingenious map however, derives from a work by Romeyn de Hooghe ""one of the most accomplished Dutch artists of the second half of the 17th century"" that appeared in Frederick de Wit's Atlas. The marginal decoration in this work depicting the four elements of Classical philosophy portrays Fire as a military battle; Air as the heavens ruled by the Zodiac and serenaded by Apollo; Earth as a field being harvested and husbandry; and Water, a sea with Dutch ships and a sputing whale. There are Greek gods presiding from the sidelines of all these scenes: Zeus, Hera, Hades, Persephone, Demeter and Poseidon. The map has two large hemispheres and two smaller, polar hemispheres. There is an outline of an Antarctic continent, which De Wit had left blank. Reference: Shirley 616 (and 444), plate 327. Price: Euro7.500,- (incl. frame)".
