To which is prefix'd An Introduction, wherein is an account of the Inhabitants, Air, Waters, Diseases, Trade, &c of that place, with some relations concerning the neighbouring continent, and islands of America. Illustrated with the figures of the things describ'd, which have not been heretofore engraved; in large copper-plates as big as the life.

      London, Printed by B.M. for the Author, 1707-1725. 2 volumes. Folio (345 x 255mm). pp. (16), cliv, 264, (2); (4), xviii, 499, (1), with 1 large folding map and 284 engraved double-page plates. Contemporary calf, gilt decorated spines with red and green gilt lettered labels, sides with large gilt coat of arms with coronet at the top of Henry Fiennes Clinton, 2nd Duke of Newcastle (minor repair to spines). A very attractively bound copy of the first and only edition. Sir Hans Sloane's most important work, containing the earliest representations of the flora and fauna of Jamaica and neighbouring islands. The plates are most probably all engraved by Michael vander Gucht and John Savage, a well-known London printseller and engraver after Everhard Kincius. "In 1687-88 Hans Sloane spent fifteen months in Jamaica as a physician to the Duke of Albemarle, governor of the island. In that time he gathered about 800 new species of plants ... in 1707 and 1725 brought out his full account. It was his most important work" (Hunt p. 32). "Christopher Monck, second duke of Albemarle, was at that time appointed governor of Jamaica; and Sloane accompanied him as physician, sailing on 12 September 1687. The expedition was of great value to Sloane, not only giving him first-hand experience of the flora and fauna of a relatively little-known island but also enabling him to search for new drugs… The description of the voyage and the observations on the inhabitants, diseases, plants, animals (some of which he brought back alive), and meteorology of the West Indies make Sloane's book on the natural history of Jamaica indispensable even today"(DSB). A fine and clean copy.//Provenance: Coat of arms of Henry Fiennes Clinton, 2nd Duke of Newcastle (1720-1794). The Duke is mainly known today as the creator of Clumber Park, his country seat in Nottinghamshire, and the dog breed the Clumber Spaniel, named after the estate. //Nissen BBI, 1854; Sabin 82169; Hunt 417.

        Nouvelle méthode pour apprendre à jouer de la harpe. Avec des leçons faciles pour les commençans, des menuets allemands et italiens et autres jolis airs ; et la partition pour l'accorder avec les pédales et sans les pédales

      single copy at present known of this extremely rare first edition, illustrated frontispiece of a beautiful engraving of a young harpist above a charming quatrain: "The Harp your hands Silvie / Let nothing to be desired / From your beautiful eyes: the soul is thrilled / Can we see you without loving you! ". Title etched in a round cartridge surrounded by musical instruments, ex-dono in pen down.The work, including text, is entirely engraved on copper.Contemporary binding blond half vellum paper flat cream.Some soiling on the boards, work toward inner margin of six volume beginning in sheets.The book is introduced with a brief history of the harp. Then come fourteen chapters, dealing with the tuning, handling the harp arpeggios, pedals and use. There are numerous transcriptions of popular tunes and songs, such as fond of Corrette, including The Furstemberg, What shall I tell you mom ...Michel Corrette (1707-1795), well known musicologists, is an important figure of the French music of the eighteenth century. If he has not left large imperishable works, only the comic concerto based Air wild Rameau regularly continuing to be played for the public, his many musical activities, his works make us better understand the taste and French music in Paris throughout the eighteenth century. At only 21, freshly arrived in Paris, he published one of the first collections of French concertos in 1728; the French contribution to this major and decisive kind of musical history in Europe comes from Italy is extremely thin, and Corrette will be one of the only to introduce in France, Blavet and Leclair. It was both conductor (at the fair Saint Laurent, who gave birth to the famous comic Concertos), organist at St. Mary of the temple, virtuoso violinist, harpsichordist, composer, naturally, and also a great teacher. Early on, Corrette has worked to fix the musical forms of his time to transmit, and his early books like The harpsichord master (1753) have been quite successful. If it ranks it to some pedagogical tradition (Couperin, Rameau, Bach) one feels at home encyclopedic will teach all instrumental forms. Corrette and leave manuals for cello, harpsichord, organ, flute, mandolin, guitar, etc., not only for musicians, but great revolution effected in the music world, to beginners; all of these methods and in recounting this method for the harp, the Italian practices as well as French, but just as good German, the three major music schools in Europe in the eighteenth, the Italian is no doubt that that has most upset the writing of music.At the forefront of innovations and practices of his time, Corrette published his harp method while practicing the instrument emerged from some spent decades. The harp had once been abandoned for its lack of chromaticism and it was not until the invention of the harp double row cord by Italian, then that of the pedal, which will see its introduction in France in 1749 for that the instrument knows a renewed interest. The instrument will be adopted quickly in aristocratic salons but without dedicated directory, and will face a growing vogue; major works for the instrument will be launched in the latter part of the eighteenth (Mozart, CPE Bach). We know all the attention will focus on the nineteenth of this instrument, due to technical changes were made to it since 1800. This method therefore confirms the revival of the harp in France, and is an important testimony of his practice and technique in the late eighteenth.Can be single copy of this method of harp that seems to have disappeared today, no copy appears in major European libraries, or public sale.

        Collection of English poets published by the Foulis Press.

      In Western culture, the production of small, easily portable printed books of important or popular texts dates from the late 15th century and saw its first important and influential printer willing to dedicate his press to such productions with Aldus Manutius' issuing his series of standard texts in the early 16th century. In the 17th century the Elzevir family came to dominate that market. While the Foulis brothers and their press did not dominate the same way, in the 18th century, they did devote a goodly portion of their time to producing small, scholarly, handsome pocket editions of mostly British poets and essayists. As a center of 18th-century learning, Glasgow was a happy fit for a printing house dedicated to quality productions made with exceptional type. Robert (1707-76) and Andrew (1712-75) Foulis, two leaders in the renaissance of British printing, are often referred to as the "Elzevirs of Britain." They created hundreds of texts on a variety of topics and in several languages. Among their notable "firsts" were the first Greek text published in Glasgow and the first work of the English Divines published in Gaelic.These uniformly bound poetry imprints date from the later years of the brothers' press before Robert's son took over the family business, which lasted until 1800. Their small format meant they could travel easily in the owner's pocket for enjoyment away from his library: while in a coffee house, tavern, or travelling. The collection in hand offers 14 authors represented in 21 different texts, 6 of which are the first or only appearance of the work from the Foulis Press, and includes the following:*Dryden, John, translator. The works of Virgil. 1769. 3 vols. Variant according to Gaskell. *Thomson, James. The seasons. 1769. Variant according to Gaskell. *Addison, Joseph. Poems on several occasions. 1770.*Shenstone, William. The select works in verse and prose. 1770.*Gay, John. Poems on several occasions. 1770. 2 vols.

The complaint: or, night-thoughts on life, death, and immortality. 1771. 2 vols. *Young, Edward. Poems on several occasions. 1771. *Dryden, John, translator.

Der berühmte Kommentar, verlegt bis ins 19. Jahrhundert, ähnelt in Form und Inhalt den deutschen Kommentaren des usus modernus.

        Ars Nova Ad Aquam Ignis Adminiculo Efficacissime Elevandam.Leipzig: 1707.

      "First edition, very rare, of one of the earliest works on steam power, the basis of the Industrial Revolution. "In 1707 [Papin] sent the Royal Society a monograph [the present work] describing a design of engine which he had developed on far-sighted high-pressure principles. The following year he returned to London to seek support for his invention. Although Leibniz admired it and suggested refinements, Sir Isaac Newton turned it down and Thomas Savery criticized it most severely, accusing Papin of poaching his ideas" (Smith, p. 139). Papin used the engine described in this book to power the first steam-driven vehicle. Published simultaneously in 1707 in French at Cassel and in Latin at Frankfurt, this Leipzig imprint is not recorded in bibliographies. Only one copy is listed on OCLC (Freiberg University of Mining and Technology); no copy on COPAC. The Latin edition is more complete than the French for, as the preface to the French edition tells us: "It was thought right to suppress in this French edition the demonstrations needed to prove all that is proposed ... those who enjoy such kinds of reasoning [may] find them easily at the end of the work in the Latin edition" (translation from Smith, p. 147). These 'demonstrations' occupy pp. 62-94 of the present work.<br/><br/> Papin (1647-1712?) arrived in Paris in 1670 intending to practise medicine, but soon became disillusioned and, having developed a taste and talent for mathematics and machinery, sought the patronage of the wife of the minister Colbert. She arranged for him to lodge in the Louvre and to assist Huygens, who had been invited to develop his many scientific interests under French protection. "At the time that Papin joined him in 1673, Huygens was investigating the force of gunpowder as a means of creating a vacuum under a piston in order to drive machinery, in particular to operate a pump to raise water from the Seine to the palace of Versailles.

However, when Beverley published a revised edition of his History in 1722, he continued it only to 1710, so there is no known account by Beverley of this event.Jean-Baptiste Labat (1663-1738) was a French clergyman, botanist, writer, explorer, ethnographer, soldier, engineer and landowner.

      - Prior to 1707, Scotland was a separate nation from England, even though the two kingdoms were ruled by the same monarch. While England had a burgeoning global empire, Scotland had no colonies and was eager to enter the realm of global imperialism and trade. From 1698 to 1700 she endeavored to set up her own colony of &#145;New Caledonia&#146; on a remote section of the Caribbean cast of Panama known as the Isthmus of Darien. The present map sheet features two attractive and fascinating maps depicting and contextualizing the so-called &#145;Darien Scheme&#146;. The upper map, A Draft of the Golden & Adjacent Islands, focuses closely in on the main Scots base of &#145;New Edinburg&#146; and the adjacent area. The lower map depicts the greater region, extending from Nicaragua, in the northwest, over the Colombia, in the southeast. It shows that, in theory, New Caledonia occupied a strategic location that could potentially become a great entrepôt of trade between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Historical Context During the mid-1690s, Scotland was in an ebullient mood. It&#146;s economy was buzzing and it finances seemed to be on a stable and progressive footing upon the establishment of the Bank of Scotland in 1695. Yet, the Scots were envious of the vast wealth flowing into London from England&#146;s overseas colonial ventures, most notably the West Indies sugar trade and the profits yielded by the English East India Company (EIC). As many Scots had served and thrived in English colonial service, Scotland felt confident that it had both the financial and human resources to find its own place in the sun. In 1695, the Scottish parliament ratified the &#145;Company of Scotland Trading to Africa and the Indies&#146; to manage Scotland&#146;s overseas ventures. The Company had credibility as it was led by William Patterson, the founder of the Bank of Scotland, who was universally regarded as a &#145;safe pair of hands&#146;. The Company&#146;s prospects sparked almost obsessive euphoria amongst the country&#146;s elite, as merchants and nobleman flocked to buy shares. Within a short time, the Company had soaked up at least 25% of Scotland&#146;s liquid capital! The Scottish Company&#146;s main strike was the &#145;Darien Scheme,&#146; a design to establish New Caledonia at the Isthmus of Darien. This was a daring plan, as it involved setting up a Protestant colony amidst a region that had long been claimed and dominated by Spain. Indeed, while Spain had long developed Central Panama and much of the Caribbean coast of New Granada (Colombia), the Darien had been a blank spot that she had generally avoided. As the Scots would soon find out, this was for good reason. In 1698, the Scottish company established New Edinburgh at this site noted on the map, and over the next year 3,000 colonists arrived. Almost immediately the dream became as a nightmare. The Darien was a hellish place full of mosquitos, malaria, yellow fever, torrential rain, and unwelcoming natives. In 1699, the Spaniards attacked and sacked the colony. The Scots abandoned the endeavour in 1700, with only 10% of the colonists surviving to make it home. The spectacular failure of New Caledonia was not only a national humiliation, but a financial catastrophe that plunged Scotland into a deep recession. Many prominent investors were brought to bankruptcy and Scotland&#146;s heavily-leveraged government was unable to pay its debts. England opportunistically offered to pay off Scotland&#146;s debt and to stabilize its economy in return for Scotland agreeing to give up it independence. Scotland accepted the deal and the Act of Union was signed in 1707, forming the United Kingdom. From that day onwards, Scots would play a disproportionately large role in overseas colonial ventures, however, it would be under the Union Jack, as opposed to the Solitaire. The present map is the second edition of the map, having been published by John Senex within his New General Atlas (London, 1721). The first edition was issued in 1699 by William Hacke and Robert Morden and is identical to the present

      Leyden: Pieter van der Aa, [1707?].. [28]pp., printed in double columns (with the actual printed foliations, totaling 50, referring to the columns). Folding map and three in-text illustrations. Folio. Modern three-quarter cloth and marbled boards, spine gilt. Faint stain in upper outer corner of most text leaves. Closed tear in foremargin of leaf A1. Good. The Frank C. Deering copy, with his gilt leather bookplate on the front free endpaper. Dickenson's harrowing narrative was first published in Philadelphia in 1699, and in London in 1700 and 1701. All of those editions are rare, the first being exceedingly so. The next edition came out in 1707, by Dutch printer Pieter van der Aa, who produced folio and octavo versions, both of which were the first to contain illustrations. This is the scarcer folio edition. Dickenson's story is not exactly an Indian captivity narrative, although often considered such. He and his companions were shipwrecked on the Florida coast in 1696 and walked several hundred miles north to St. Augustine and safety. Indians stole from them and harassed them, but little else. The map shows the eastern seaboard of the United States, as well as Cuba, Hispaniola, and Jamaica. The three engravings show Dickenson's tribulations at the hands of the Florida Indians.

        Biblia. Das ist die ganze heilige Schrift Altes und Neues Testaments/ verteuscht durch D. Martin Luthern/

      Leipzig: Verlag Johann Ludewig Bleditsch, 1707. Full Vellum. Good. Folio, 37 by 24 cm. 14 cm thick. Leaves are numbered, not pages, and so the page count is double, plus plates. [25], 328, 134, 94, 179 leaves, with a total of 248 full-page engraved plates. (By sections, Old Testament up to the Prophets: 135 plates, the Prophets, 11 plates, the Apocrypha, 6 plates, the New Testament, 96 plates.) Our copy has considerably more plates than described on OCLC, which gives the plate count as 135. While this number is in accord with the plate count for the first section, we would note that otherwise the leaf count is near identical with our collation. This OCLC summation does suggest there are maps -- there are none in our copy, and we believe that this is a misdescription, as there is no evidence of anything removed from our copy, and we collated every text page for completeness. Vellum heavily worn and darkened, with loss at spine head and the vellum lifted from adjoining boards at top. Tears along lower edge as well. Lacking FFEP and possibly prelim. blanks. The first leaf hanging by a thread, and the hinge is loose, affecting the first few gatherings. Roughness to the early leaves, with a few tears, corner creases and typical heavy wear that afflicts old bibles in Genesis. Three of the early plates have longish closed tears -- several inches each. By the end of Genesis the condition has improved and stabilized, and most of the leaves that follow, throughout the Old and New Testaments, are well-preserved -- they have age toning and some scattered soiling, but they read mostly clean. A few of the later plates and text leaves have minor chips or marginal losses. In only two instances is text lost, and only in one of these would it rise above trivial, without being a substantial portion of the page (it is about three inches of a corner). One leave number, for leaf 324, is flipped to "342", but otherwise the text flows as it should.
