CHISWELL, Richard
Richard Chiswell. Map. Engraving with hand-coloring. Image measures 12.5 x 22.5". This early town plan of London, published circa 1707, shows the city as laid out around the Thames River, which snakes along the lower half of the map. The city and its surrounding boroughs extend out from the river's shores, with fine engraving of streets and buildings offering detailed insight into the city's development at the beginning of the 18th century. Prominent roads and locales are labeled, particularly along the river, where the names of various docks mix with pictorial ships. The title runs along the top of the map, below which are two decorative cartouches, the left bearing London's coat of arms and the right listing the map's publishing information. Along the bottom are a scale and compass rose. Overall wear, particularly at the original folds. Two-inch tear into image at upper right with early repair. Staining to left border and some offsetting along the bottom. Narrow margins. Richard Chiswell (1639--1711) was a British publisher and map seller who focused on his hometown of London. He notably produced maps for the Royal Society of London, a learned society founded during his lifetime that sought to promote scientific discussion in British society. This map speaks to the period in which it was published as a time of active and exciting investigation.

Quis Separatbit and the date 1783, making this owner a standing member of the Order of Saint Patrick founded by George III in 1783, specifically for the Irish aristocracy, who in many cases supported the Catholic Irish rights, some of course did not.

Henry Fielding
Henry Fielding (1707-1754) was an English novelist and dramatist. Here is a lovely copy of the first edition, second printing of this seminal English novel. In the Harvard Classics volumes Gordon Gerould summarizes 'Tom Jones' thus: "As to the stupendous achievement of the novel there can be no question. Beyond all cavil it is supremely great. By the very might of its revelation of human nature it disarms criticism and tempts to the use of the superlative... The merit of it consists in the performance of what Fielding in his prefatory chapter promised to give the reader: 'The provision then which we have here made is no other than HUMAN NATURE. In like manner, the excellence of the mental entertainment consists less in the subject than in the author?s skill in well dressing it up.' In other words, 'Tom Jones' is great because it pictures real men and women, and because its craftsmanship is marvelous". The second printing was issued in April 1749, two months after the first printing.  Cross describes it thus: "Immediate revision was rendered imperative on account of the numerous errors that crept into the text owing to the haste with which the novel had been at last put through the press...  type and paper are the same and the paging is kept uniform with the edition having the errata... The table of contents is re-spaced so as to extend into the page formerly given to the errata... scores of individual pages differ either in the number of lines or in the last words and phrases".  The copy offered here is identified as a second printing by the following specific bibliographic … [Click Below for Full Description]

FUNNELL, William
London,: James Knapton,, 1707.. Octavo, five folding maps & 10 plates; mild browning of the title-page and dedication, edges a little spotted; very good in neat later polished calf with gilt bands and red morocco label, joints rubbed, bookplate. A nice copy of the work which almost ruined Dampier's already shaky reputation, Funnell's highly critical account of the 1703-4 South Seas voyage of the St. George. It was during this voyage that Alexander Selkirk, the prototype of Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, was marooned on Juan Fernandez.The cruise of the St. George and the Cinque Ports (Captain Stradling) was a South Seas voyage designed to harass the Spanish, but it failed because of conflict on board the vessels, including a falling-out between the mate Funnell and Dampier. When the former returned to England first, he seized the opportunity to rush into print with this highly unflattering account of his former captain. Dampier, in turn, would publish a vindication of his conduct, and would have been infuriated when the publisher Knapton later included this highly critical work in the collected edition of Dampier in 1729.Funnell joined Dampier's third privateering expedition as mate of the St. George which sailed for the Canary Islands, Brazil and the South Seas in April 1703. The St. George was joined by the Cinque Ports and both ships started looting the South American Coast from the Juan Fernandez Islands in January 1704. They experienced mixed success and the crews grew rebellious in the face of dwindling food supplies. Funnell's account is highly critical of Dampier, and char … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lhuyd, Edward
The author, Oxford, 1707. Title page with engraving of Oxford's Sheldonian Theatre, 2p list of subscribers, dedications, 436 pp and index. Half-morocco with marbled boards and end papers. Label on spine with gilt lettering. Some foxing on tp but otherwise mainly bright and clean. Copperplate signature on flyleaf and book plates in the name of George John Smith of Treliske, Truro, Cornwall. Edward Lhuyd (1660-1707), born near Oswestry, was a Welsh scholar at Jesus College, Oxford, and Curator of the Ashmolean Museum. From 1695 to 1701 he travelled exhaustively through the Celtic countries; this volume (only v. I was published) is the result. In many ways Lhuyd anticipated the methods of modern comparative linguistics. His book is also a fascinating source of material on late Cornish, still spoken when Lhuyd made his journey, and of course on the other languages studied. A fine example of this seminal work.

Georges-Louis Leclerc, Compt de Buffon
Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte de Buffon (1707-1788) was a French naturalist, mathematician, biologist, cosmologist and author. Buffon's views and work influenced the next two generations of naturalists during a critical period in the development of human knowledge and conception of the natural world.  Charles Darwin, in a forward to his Origin of Species, stated that "the first author who in modern times has treated it in a scientific spirit was Buffon."  It should be remarked that, like many sages before and after him, Buffon was not universally prescient.  He argued that the Americas were lacking in large and powerful creatures, and that even the people were less virile than their European counterparts. An affronted Thomas Jefferson arranged to have the carcass of a bull moose sent to Paris for Buffon as proof of the virility of New World quadrupeds (and bipeds as well).  Here is a 10 volume matched set of Buffon's ambitiously comprehensive discourse on natural science, with varying publication dates (4 vols published in 1807, 2 published in 1810, 2 published in 1811, and 2 published in 1812).  All are bound in the original half leather over marbled boards with leather corners.  The set is in very good condition overall considering the age and original bindings.  The bindings all show shelf wear, but all of the boards remain firmly attached with square and tight bindings.  All of the contents are clean, tight, and complete, including the many hand-colored plates.
