        Private Devotions for Several Occasions, Ordinary and Extraordinary

      printed by W.N. for E. and R. Pawlet, London 1706 - 12mo. [161 x 93 x 14 mm]. [1]f, 98pp. Bound c.1820 in straight-grained blue goatskin, the covers with a gilt fillet border, gilt corners of trailing sprigs, and a gilt fillet panel punctuated with circles and husks, enclosing blind corners and a blind centre-piece composed of sprigs, circles, flower-heads and pointillé gouges. The spine divided into six panels, the bands tooled and flanked with gilt fillets, lettered in the second panel and at the foot, the others tooled in gilt and blind, the corners of the edges of the boards hatched in gilt, turn-ins and matching inside joints tooled in gilt and blind, brown endleaves, gilt edges, pair of silver catches and clasps at the fore-edge. Allestree's Private Devotions were included in numerous editions of The Whole Duty of Man from 1659. There were at least seven separate editions, the first dated 1660 (Wing A.1161), followed by two editions of 1706, then 1707, 1724, 1733 and 1740 (though ESTC questions whether the last may be 1704). Of the 1706 editions one has 98pp (Bodleian and McMaster only) and this has [2], 98 pp, and is know only from the Canterbury Cathedral copy. The text has been interleaved with lined blanks and there are a fair number of manuscript additions including a prayer "under the pressure of violent anguish", and two poems, "The Shrubbery, written in a time of affliction", by Cowper, which is signed "E.W. Southill Oct.26 1815" and "An Imitation of Pastor Fido" by Lord Lyttelton, signed "E.W. May 2. 1816, Dover Street". The E.W. was Elizabeth Whitbread, whose bookplate appears at the front. She was the daughter of Charles Grey, 1st Earl Grey and sister of the future Prime Minister, also Charles. In 1788 she married the brewer and politician Samuel Whitbread (b.1764), and the family seat was at Southill Park in Bedfordshire. Samuel committed suicide at their London home, 35 Dover Street, on 6th July 1815. Elizabeth lived until 1848. There are also a few manuscript notes in ink and pencil in the text, and the signature of "Eliz. Crosse" has been cut out and pasted below the bookplate. With the Sotheran ink stamp on the verso of the front free endleaf and Maggs Bros cost code dated 1991 (in the hand of one Edward Bayntun-Coward) at the rear.

        SAGALASSOS City of Water

      ERTUG & KOCABIYIK Sagalassos: City of WaterExtending over the mountainous terrain of Aglasun Mountain in southern Turkey (approx. 150 km north of Antalya) at an elevation of 2045 m, the city of Sagalassos, which once belonged to the ancient region of Pisidia, enjoyed natural protection due to its prominent location. This elevated site was also well-provided with natural spring water, making it an ideal choice for settlement.The city, which was probably initially inhabited in the 5th c BC, is first mentioned historically in connection with the campaigns of Alexander the Great, who defeated the Sagalassians in 333 BC. In the 2nd c AD in particular, Sagalassos experienced an enormous increase in prosperity, coinciding with the Emperor Hadrian?s selection of the city as the centre of the Pisidian Imperial cult.First rediscovered by a French traveller in 1706, Sagalassos was visited by a number of Western explorers throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. Exploratory excavation began in 1987, culminating in an intensive excavation campaign at Sagalassos initiated in 1993 under the direction of the Belgian archaeologist Marc Waelkens. Two decades later, enough has been uncovered to reveal that the city was a jewel not only amongst the Pisidian cities but also in Asia Minor in general.The city boasted all necessary urban infrastructures ? a monumental, although unfinished theatre, a stadium, numerous nymphaea, a library, temples to pagan gods and to the Imperial cult, vast public spaces for commercial and ceremonial purposes, and residential areas. The city also attracted an active artistic community, including sculptors, architects and potters. Sculptors, including representatives of the important marble-producing site of Dokimeion, produced statues and portraits of local benefactors, divinities, and members of the Imperial family, and numerous funerary monuments; architects and architectural sculptors created structures which could easily compete in beauty, majesty and crispness of detail with those from other more well-known sites such as Ephesos; while potters? workshops, exploiting local clay beds, created a widely exported local ceramic ware. Excavations have also shed light on the history of the city in Late Antiquity and beyond, indicating that, in spite of repeated earthquakes, the city continued to be inhabited probably until the late 11th c AD, undergoing the transformation into a Christian city.The architectural splendours ? some of which have been reconstructed ? and the sculptural treasures are the focus of the new book, "Sagalassos: City of Water." Lavishly illustrated with 99 splendid plates by Ahmet Ertug, the book provides an overview of the ancient history, architecture, sculpture, and pottery of the site, as well as the history of its discovery and subsequent exploration. The texts, written by leading scholars in the field, are accessible both to the non-specialist and to the professional, while the illustrations, ranging from breath-taking panoramic overviews of the landscape to minute details of sculptural elements, reinforce Sagalassos? claim to have been one of the leading cities of Asia Minor.The book, which is 34x47cm,contains 208 pages. 99 full-colour plates, and additional plans, provide an exemplary overview of the site and its monuments. Printed in Germany and hand-bound in Switzerland, the volume is presented in a slipcase. Texts by Marc Waelkens, Semra Mägele and Jeroen Poblome; photographs by Ahmet Ertug.

Very Good. Hardcover. Daniel Defoe (1660-1731) remains commonly known today; as a sharp-witted political commentator, agitator, satirist, and writer. He published a great number of works; under his own name, as well as anonymously and pseudonomously. This work - the Divine Right, a Satire - was published in response to the accepted assertions made during Defoe's lifetime about the powers of absolute moncarhs and the duties of 'obedience' and 'non-resistance' owed to them by their people. Within, Defoe asserts that reasonability and natural law are or ought to be the true bases of justice. The book is dedicated 'to the Most Serene, Most Invincible, and Most Illustrious Lady Reason: First Monarchof the World: The Almightys Representative and Resident in the Souls of Men;' and is set an attractive, dark-brown calfskin binding, with charming designs embossed on both boards, and a ribbed spine.

        t Noorder Gedeelte van Virginie door Bartholomeus Gosnol en Martin Pringe uyt Engeland Bevaaren.

      Leiden: 1706 - An early map showing the route from England to Cape Cod, passing the Azores, taken by "Bartholomeus Gosnol" and "Martin Pringe", relatively unrecognized English explorers who lead the first recorded European expedition to Cape Cod, predating William Bradford and the Pilgrims. Bartholomew Gosnold (1572 - 1607) was an English explorer, instrumental in the formation of the Virginia Company and considered by Preservation Virginia to be the "prime mover of the colonization of Virginia". Gosnold pioneered the route west from the Azores to New England (then called Virginia); he named Cape Cod in 1602, discovered Martha's Vineyard (named after his daughter) and established a small settlement on Cuttyhunk Island (one of the Elizabeth Islands). Martin Pring (1580 - 1626) was an English explorer who arrived on Cape Cod (possibly Edgartown) in 1603, just after Gosnold.9 1/4 x 6 1/4"; paper size 13 1/2 x 9". Reference Phillips, P.L.

        Histoire de l'Abbaye Royal de Saint-Denys en France. Contenant la Vie des Abbez qui l'ont governée depuis onze cens ans: les Hommes Illustres qu'elle a donnez à l'Eglise & à l'État: les Privileges accordez par les Souverains Pontifes & par les Evêques: les Dons des Rois, des Princes & des autres Bienfacteurs. Avec la Description de l'Eglise & de tout ce qu'elle contient de remarkquable. Le tout justifié par des Titres authentiques & enrichi de Plans, de Figures & d'une Carte Topographique

      A Paris, Chez Frederic Leonard..., 1706. FIRST EDITION. Folio, 385 x 255 mms., pp. 32, 592, ccxxiii [ccxxiv blank], [23 Index, 24 blank], engraved frontispiece by De Poilly, double-page engraved plan of Saint-Denys. and one of the Cathedral, 10 engraved double-page plates of the treasures of the cathedral, two other single page engraved plates, engraved head- and tail-pieces, engraved initials and vignettes within text, contemporary calf, spine richly gilt in compartments with red morocco label laid down and joints restored; small pieces cut from lower corners of three leaves, , but a very good to fine copy of this book, with the engraved armorial bookplate of James Everard. The Abbey of Saint-Denis is inextricably bound up with the history of France, and this sumptuous history with its superb engravings of its treasures remains one of best and most-cited books on the Abbey. The Abbey was dissolved during the French Revolution, and it was significantly damaged as well. It was subsequently restored, under Napoleon III, by Viollet-le-Duc. The relics of St-Denis, which had been transferred to the parish church of the town in 1795, were brought back again to the abbey in 1819. "While contemporary scholars have increasingly problematized the idea of a single Gothic "origin," Saint-Denis is popularly viewed as the site where various structural, spatial, and iconographical components synthesized to result in the Gothic style. In every major survey of art history, the Gothic chapter begins with Saint-Denis. Current medieval architectural historians usually present a more nuanced picture within their specialist work, but at the introductory level of the discipline, Saint-Denis is shorthand for 'first Gothic'" (Structuring the Gothic Past). Felibien includes in his text the earliest known description, from the tenth century, of the abbey. Felibien was so successful with this volume that the merchants of Paris importuned him to write a history of Paris. Graesse II, 561. Cohen de Ricci 378.

        Bibliotheca Bigotiana seu catalogus librorum

      J. Boudot C. Osmont G. Martin Paris: J. Boudot, C. Osmont, G. Martin, 1706. First Paris Book Auction for which a Catalogue was Printed [Bigot.] Bibliotheca Bigotiana seu catalogus librorum, quos (dum viverent) summa cura & industria, ingentique sumptu congessere viri clarissimi DD. uterque Joannes, Nicolaus, & Lud. Emericus Bigotii . . . 12mo. [8], 72, [2], 73-220, [2], 248, 59, [1], 31, [1], 31pp. Paris: Apud Joannem Boudot, Carolum Osmont, Gabrielem Martin, 1706. 161 x 94 mm. Calf, gilt spine ca. 1706, light wear. Very good. A few marginal notes in ink and pencil, including possible prices realized. 19th century bookplates of the Car[dinal] de Beaurepaire and Germain Barré. First Edition. The Bigot library sale in 1706 was the first book auction conducted in Paris for which a catalogue was printed. The sale by auction of the Bigot family library was conducted by booksellers Jean Boudot, Charles Osmont and Gabriel Martin over the remarkably long duration of five months. This was Gabriel Martin?s first catalogue, ?and according to Bléchet, Jean-Pierre Nicéron was an editor? (North, Printed Catalogues of French Book Auctions and Sales by Private Treaty 1643-1830 in the Library of the Grolier Club, no. 12). Prior to this auction several auction catalogues for private libraries had been printed in Paris, but these libraries were sold privately and thus never went to auction. Bookseller, publisher and writer Prosper Marchand organized and catalogued the sale for Boudot, Martin and Osmont. One of the ways in which the catalogue was notable was in its introduction into bookselling of the classification scheme organizing information into five great divisions: Theology, jurisprudence, philosophy (i.e., sciences and arts), belles-lettres and history. Gabriel Martin, one of the auctioneers of the Bigot library, promoted this scheme, which originated in the seventeenth century and may have first been applied in the Catalogus bibliothecae Thuanae (1679), the catalogue of the library of French historian and bibliophile Jacques Auguste de Thou. Book auctions in France would follow this scheme throughout the 18th century, and in the early 19th century Jacques Charles Brunet elaborated on this basic scheme in his famous Manuel du librairie et de l?amateur de livres (1810). The Bigot library was begun by Jean Bigot in the early 17th century, and continued by his son, Louis-Emery. It eventually passed to Robert Bigot, sieur de Monville, and was sold at his death in 1706. The library included that of Jean Henri Jacques de Mesmes, for whom Gabriel Naudé, de Mesmes? librarian, had written Avis pour dresser une bibliothèque in 1627. At the time of sale the Bigot library consisted of 450 manuscripts and over 15,000 printed books. At the Bigot auction many books and all the manuscripts were purchased for the Bibliothèque du Roi. Over 150 years later the Bigot manuscripts were catalogued by Léopold Delisle as Bibliotheca Bigotiana Manuscripta. Catalogue des manuscrits rassemblés aux XVIIe siecle par les Bigot, mis en vente au mois de juillet 1706, aujourdhui conservé aux Bibliothèque nationale (1877).

        Gospel-Truth Demonstratedin a collection of Doctrinal Books containing Principles Essential to Christianity and Salvation, held among the People called Quakers

      London -T. Sowle14 by 9; [xii]1090[6]pp., 1706 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A collection of short pieces arranged by the founding father of the Quaker movement himself. George Fox (1624-91) was the son of a textile weaver who by 1650 had inherited a large enough fortune to be without financial concerns. With little education and a deep sense of dissatisfaction with the manner in which religion was practiced in England, he left home on tour in order to seek englightenment. By 1647 he was convinced of the 'inner light' by which God communicates directly with the soul; a conviction which led naturally to the assertion that it was God's calling (and not a degree from a famous university) that endowed a person with the wherewithall to be a minister. Fox spent the rest of his life as a peripatetic; preaching to all and sundry, and exhibiting formidable tolerance when persecuted - a situation he found himself in frequently, given that he opposed Trinitarianism, the collection of tithes, and oath-giving as he found them biblically unjustified. Having been imprisoned on a number of occasions for his activities, Fox urged pacifism in disputes. Fox's followerscame to be calledQuakers, after their behaviour at worship. Fox founded the Society of Friends and travelled the world over, continuing his custom of preaching his understanding of whatever he believed to beGod's will to any who would listen. This volume contains 157 short pieces detailing many such ruminations. Condition: Externally bound in old calf, with contrasting label. Some wear to extremities Internally, on front pastedown a bookplate of William Rawlinson Graithwaite Hall) with, below it, an armorial bookplate (with no name), and the bookplate of Professor David Arthur Pailin; on blank end-paper the signature of Edward Mitford Abraham Swarthmoor Hall.

        Passion Flower

      Born in Nuremberg, Barbara Regina Dietzch (1706-1783) was Dietzch was the daughter of Johann Dietzsch Israel, a renowned painter, draftsman and etcher in his own right. Barbara discovered her artistic skills as a young child studying and practicing in her fathers workshop and she developed a technique of watercolor over gold leaf on vellum that had never been attempted before. Barbara had a considerable influence over many still life natural history artists of the period and her watercolors were strongly collected during her lifetime by her fellow artists. The rich, dark backgrounds of her paintings give a dimensional quality to the finely detailed forms of the botanicals and their subtle coloring. This beautiful painting of a Passion Flower, measures 20" x 17" and is in excellent condition. The rich background highlights the delicate blue-green hues of the leaves, bringing life and a realism to the flower.

"Much of Halley's scholarship was exercised upon the works of Apollonius of Perga, one of the greatest mathematicians of antiquity, and indeed of all time, who flourished in the latter part of the third century B.C. One of his minor works, Sectio rationis (Cutting-off of a ratio), an exercise in geometrical algebra, was thought to be lost until an Arabic translation of it was found among the Selden manuscripts in the Bodleian and identified by Edward Bernard, the Savillian Professor of Astronomy. Bernard set about translating it into Latin; but the manuscript was very defective and he soon laid the task aside. His successor, David Gregory, made a fair copy of the original for the use of Henry Aldrich, Dean of Christ Church, at whose invitation Halley, upon succeeding Wallis in the Savillian Chair of Geometry, undertook to complete the translation. He had never previously studied Arabic; but, using as a key the few passages translated by Bernard, he eventually made out the meaning of the text. He proceeded to restore the lost companion tract, Sectio spatii, following hints from Pappus. He gave his reasons for regrading the works as genuine; and he included in his edition the earliest printed Greek text of Pappus's preface to the seventh book of his Synagoge (Collection)."-Angus Armitage, Edmond Halley, p. 160. Five hundred copies of this book were printed and, by 1713, 122 copies were remaindered. From the library of Jacob Bronowski (1908-74), the mathematician, biologist, historian of science, poet, and inventor. .

        A Complete History of England: with the Lives of all the Kings and Queens thereof; From the earliest Account of Time, to the Death of His late Majesty King William III. Containing A Faithful Relation of all Affairs of State Ecclesiastical and Civil

      LONDON : Erab. Aylmer, Reb. Renwick, Sam. Smith et al , 1706 An extremely rare account of the History of England complete in 3 folio volumes. Edited by John Oldmixon (1673-1742), this account draws on the best works available for each period in history. For example, Sir Thomas Moore's account of Edward V and Richard III was translated for this work, and William Campden's [Camden] work on the life of Elizabeth I is used in volume 2. All 3 volumes are bound in contemporary panelled calf with raised bands and gilt tooling, and all have wear at the joints. The boards are all attached and sound bar wear to corners, but the joints will need attention. 2 title labels are present but not attached. Vol I is 640pp excl index; has the bookplate of Sir John Chester; f/p portrait of Queen Ann; and title page in red & black inks. The f/p is complete but crumpled. Covers history from pre William the Conqueror to King Henry VII, with contributions from John Milton, Samuel Daniel, John Habington, Sir Thomas Moore, George Buck and Francis, Lord Bacon. It has a preface introducing the writers and detailing the value of history study. It also contains an advertisement, outline contents and subscriber list & index. With 20 full page high quality plates incl the f/p - one for each monarch. Contents in VG condition - p 191 has lost a bottom corner w/o text loss and some pages have light browning. With printer error to page 157 - Richard becomes 'Richrad'. Vol II is 792 pp excl index; has bookplate as above; title page in red/black inks; and covers Henry VIII to James I. Authors are Rt Hon Edward Lord Herbert of Cherbury, Sir John Hayward, Francis Godwin, William Campden and Arthur Wilson. With 5 full page plates. The front endpaper is crumpled; the first section is loose and there is some browning in the outer margin (about 2 inches long) with some loss not affecting text that runs through pp1-13. Pp 779-781 have crumpled edges. Vol III is 849 pp excl index, and covers the period from Charles I to William III and was written by White Kennett (1660-1728) who became Bishop of Peterborough. It has 5 full page plates. With title page in red/black inks and bookplate as above. Some pages in this volume are brown stained but still readable, which appears to relate to the paper used in those pages as there is no water damage. There is some browning and page loss to the index but no text is missing.

Neste terceyra impressaõ emendadas, & acrescentadas, dous Entremeses, & quatro Loas famosas. LISBOA, Na Officina de ANTONIO PEDROZO GALRAM. Anno de 1706. Com todas as licenças necessárias.

Exemplar com título de posse da época sobre a folha de rosto. INOCÊNCIO I, 388: "Frei Boaventura Machado, Franciscano, chamado no século Simão Machado, nome pelo qual ficou sendo entre nós mais conhecido. Foi natural de Torres Novas. Professou a regra de S. Francisco em Castela, no convento de Barcelona. Vê se que ainda vivia em 1632, pois nesse ano imprimiu a obra que logo mencionarei. O pouco que dele se sabe acha-se também consignado no Ensaio biográfico crítico de Costa e Silva, tomo VI de pag. 106 a 153, onde vem longamente analisadas as comédias que dele nos restam. «COMEDIAS PORTUGUEZAS feitas pelo excellente poeta Simão Machado. A Dom Francisco de Saa de Menezes, Conde de Penaguyão, Camareiro mór de Sua Magestade etc. Comedias do Cerco de Dio, primeira e segunda parte. Comedias da Pastora Alfea, primeira e segunda parte. N’esta segunda impressão emendadas e acrescentados dous entremeses, e quatro loas famosas. Lisboa, por Antonio Alvares 1631. 4.º As loas e entremezes acrescentados são escriptos em castelhano». Saíram novamente em terceira impressão, Lisboa, por Antonio Pedroso Galrão 1706 4.º de IV 212 pag. Barbosa indica uma primeira edição, mas só das comedias de Dio, feita em 1601 por Pedro Craesbeeck, a qual ainda não tive ocasião de ver. A edição de 1631, que é a mais estimada, tem valido de 1:600 réis até 2:400. A de 1706, feita em péssimo papel, maus tipos, e sobremaneira incorrecta, é contudo procurada na falta da anterior, e tem se tornado pouco menos rara que ela. Possuo um exemplar comprado por 800 réis, porém sei que alguns se venderam até por 1:200. José Maria da Costa e Silva ao terminar a sua análise das comédias de que se trata, diz a respeito delas e do seu autor: «Simão Machado foi um génio eminentemente dramático, igual a Gil Vicente na facilidade do diálogo, e muito superior a ele na contextura dos dramas, na variedade dos lances, e no desenho e desempenho dos caracteres. As comédias de Alphea executadas por bons actores, e decoradas com o necessário aparato por maquinistas hábeis, e boas pinturas, ainda hoje seriam muito aplaudidas no teatro como dramas mágicos. Foi na verdade uma desgraça para a cena portuguesa que ele a abandonasse tão cedo para meter-se frade. Se tivesse continuado na carreira encetada, emestrado pelo uso, e pela experiencia, quem sabe até onde um génio tão raro poderia levantar o vôo?». É para lamentar que este nosso dramático não seja mais conhecido, e que ainda se não empreendesse uma edição correcta e aprimorada das obras que dele nos restam, trabalho que nínguem deixaria de ter por um serviço de grande valia as nossas letras, tornando assim mais vulgar a leitura destas peças, que hoje estão ao alcance de muito poucos".

Mid-20th-century crushed morocco, spine and panels ruled in gilt, raised bands, elaborately gilt inner dentelles. Very faint contemporary ownership signature at head of titlepage.

Keith arrived in Boston in 1702 as a representative of the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts, having renounced his previous fanatical attachment to Quakerism. His travels from New England to Carolina during the two subsequent years had him sermonizing before a good number of congregations, as well as taking part in several pamphlet controversies (Sabin attributes some fifty-two titles to him; see Reese's bibliography of Keith's American publications). He preached in Yorktown, Williamsburg, Jamestown, and other locations along the coast, and made a name for himself by taking on the "stubborn and irascible inhabitants" of the colonies.
