        LA PERLA DEL VALLÉS MARIA SANTISSIMA, EN SA MIRACULOSA IMATGE DE BELLULLA. NARRACIÓ DE LA INVENCIÓ DE DITA SAGRADA IMATGE, Y DE ALGUNS DELS MOLTS PRODIGIS que Deu obra en los Devots de ella.

      . 15,5 cm. 8 f., 112 pàg. Capçaleres i caplletres. Enq. en pergamí recent, llom retolat, tanques. L'exemplar pertanyia el 1730 a Josep Soler Vilomara. * Monografia dedicada a la imatge venerada en el santuari de Bellulla, al municipi de Canovelles (Vallès oriental). La primitiva construcció de la capella era de 1279 però a principis del segle XVII va substituir-se per una altra de tipus renaixentista, probablement en un moment en què la capella pertanyia als dominics de Santa Caterina de Barcelona. Segons la tradició, una pastora havia trobat l'antiga imatge de bronze de la Verge de Bellulla, venerada com a advocada de la vista, el 1261. Des de l'any 1872 es trobava a la parròquia de Canovelles, d'on va desaparèixer el 1936. Palau (210428) comentava en el seu moment que l'obra "empieza a escasear".

        THE OFFERS OF FRANCE EXPLAIN'D.

      London: Printed for A. Baldwin, . 1712 - [2],26pp. Modern half calf over marbled boards, spine gilt. Titlepage lightly soiled, small worm hole through entire text affecting a few letters, otherwise internally clean. A very good copy. A pamphlet highly critical of offers made by French representatives at the time that the Treaty of Utrecht was being negotiated. The Treaty of Utrecht, signed in 1713, ended the War of the Spanish Succession (also known as Queen Anne's War). In early 1712 the French and British were negotiating bilaterally, each making demands on the other for concessions, including those regarding territory in North America. This tract, intensely critical of the entire proposed treaty, includes critiques of the third and fifth articles which relate to American territories, including Hudson Bay, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland. The author's dissatisfaction with the proposed treaty is expressed in the first paragraph: "If I may judg[e] by myself, 'tis impossible to express the surprize, indignation, and concern, which the offers of France for a general peace must have rais'd in the breast of every true Englishman. Is this the good peace we have been made to expect? Are these the fruits of a successful war? Is this the provision made for the safety of our allies?.This the security for Great Britain? Is this reducing the exorbitant power of France, and preserving the liberty of Europe?" EUROPEAN AMERICANA 712/164. KRESS S2596. GOLDSMITHS 4968.

        A TREATISE OF PERSPECTIVE Demonstrative and Practical Illustrated with Copper Cutts.

      B. Tooke and D. Midwinter, London 1712 - Small 8vo, Pagination: pp. xvi, 1-48, 49-50 absent but text continuous, 51-164, 167-168, 165-166, 171-172, 169-170, 6 plates, 173, [1]. Ditton (1675-1715) was a mathematician, and master of a new mathematical school at Christ's Hospital for which this book was written. With William Whiston he derived an impracticable scheme for the determination of longitude by the firing of a shell set to explode at a certain height. He published several other noted works including "The General Laws of Nature and Motions" (London, 1705, a commentary on Newton's "Principia"), and (with Whiston), "A New Method for Discovering the Longitude both at Sea and Land." (London, 1714). Our copy of "A Treatise of Perspective" is complete, with Errata page, although some of the latter pages are bound out of order. The last part of the book is "An Appendix containing a brief Account of some Things of Use, in the Art of Perspective", and includes comments and suggstions on stage design, "lights and shadows", "pictures in pictures", etc. The last page of the book contains an advertisement. The book is dedicated to Francis Nicholson "General of Her Majesty's Forces in North America". On the blank page, on the reverse of the dedication page, a 19th century former owner has practiced his signature. There is a signature to the bottom margin of the title page. The text shows some foxing, mainly to the margins. The six folding plates are foxed and have been repaired by our conservator. Our master binder has hand-tooled a geometrical design from one of the plates on to the front board, and has sewn hand-made headbands on to the book. The book is now bound in full blue goatskin, with the spine in compartments: a very fine presentation. Recent professional re-bind in full decorated goatskin [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Theory and Practice of Gardening: Wherein is fully handled all that relates to Fine Gardens, commonly called Pleasure-Gardens, as Parterres, Groves, Bowling-Greens, &c. Containing divers Plans, and general Dispositions of Gardens.... With the manner of laying out the Grounds, cutting the Terrasses... the method of Planting, and raising, in little time, all the Plants requisite in Fine Gardens... Done from the French Original, printed at Paris, Anno 1709. By John James of Greenwich.

      London, Printed by Geo. James, 1712. 4to (252 x 200mm). pp.(16), 218, (2), with 32 double- or folded plates. Contemporary calf, richly gilt spine in 6 compartments with red gilt lettered label, sides with gilt borderlines with coronet corner-pieces (old repair to hinges). Rare first English edition of Dezallier d'Argenville's 'La théorie et la pratique du jardinage', which was published anonymously in 1709 like the present first English edition. The most important work on garden design in the eighteenth century, with plates after designs by Alexandre Le Blond. The work popularized the manner of Le Nôtre and his school in the laying out of ornamental gardens: parterres, bosquets, fountains, basins, and cascades. André Le Nôtre (1613-1700) designed or redesigned the gardens of Versailles, the Tuileries and Fontainebleau. The book ran to 11 editions, in three languages. "The English version of d'Argenville's work first appeared in London in 1712. The translator was the noted London architect John James... It is well produced on good quality paper and profusely illustrated, the plates being the same as those in the original French work, but re-engraved by Michael van der Gucht... 'The theory and practice of gardening' deals fully with the design and formation of fine gardens, commonly called pleasure-gardens.. [and] must have been the inspiration of many formal gardens designed in England during the early part of the eighteenth century..."(Henry II, p. 493-495). A fine copy in a beautiful contemporary binding of noble provenance.//Henry 1426 & II pp. 491-495.

      London: Printed by Joseph Downing, 1712. - [2],66pp. Small quarto. Antique-style three-quarter speckled calf and marbled boards, gilt morocco spine label. Text trimmed a bit close, shaving the bottom of five words on one page. Some light foxing. Very good. From the Library of the earls of Macclesfield, with bookplate on front pastedown. Second edition of this collection, after the first of 1706.

Included is the charter granted the Society by King William III, the Society's request for fit ministers to be sent abroad, a description of the qualifications of such ministers, the standing orders of the Society, and instructions for clergy and schoolmasters as to how they should comport themselves when on their missions.

        Le misantrope contenant Des Réfléxions Critiques, Satyriques & Comiques, sur les défauts des hommes. [Le misantrope pour l'année M.DCC.XI.; Le misantrope de l'ann'e M.DCC.XII. ]

      A La Haye, Chez T. Johnson, MDCCXI, MDCCXII (1712-1713)., 1713. Book. Good. Hardcover. 2 volumes in 1 ; 17 cm. ; OCLC: 43360329 ; contemporary banded leather, peeling at spine ; This is the complete collection of the 85 issued numbers of van Effen's Le Misantrope, considered the first magazine to be published in Europe, patterned on that of The Spectator of Addison and Steele ; Justus van Effen was born in Utrecht, and after a botched attempt to complete a scientific degree at the University of Utrecht, as well as a couple of wild love affairs, he made his way to London where he spent much time in the company of the literary circles that frequented the then-scandalous coffee houses ; upon his return to the Netherlands, he eventually makes his way to the Hague, where he is employed for a time. Here he publishes the magazine in numbers written anonymously, selling for half a stuiver. Although the magazine fails after just two years, and van Effen goes on to publish other, more lavish serial publications, this remains his most important contribution. After much acclaim in his later years, and after arranging for the livelihood of his mistress and illegitimate children by a deathbed marriage, van Effen died of cancer in Den Bosch on September 18, 1735 ; G.

        A Voyage to the South Sea, and Round the World , Perform'd in the Years 1708, 1709, 1710, and 171. Containing a Journal of all memorable Transactions during the said voyage ... A description of the American Coasts, from Tierra del Fuego to California... An Account is given of Mr Alexander Selkirk... during the four years and four months he lived upon the uninhabited Island of Jaun Ferandes

      London: B. Lintot and R. Gosling, A. Bettesworth and W. Innys, 1712. Octavo, with two folding maps and eighteen plates and plans; early panelled calf, in excellent condition including folding aerial plan of the Peruvian capital Cusco. William Dampier's last voyage. First edition of a famous English buccaneering voyage, prepared to beat Woodes Rogers' personal account to the market. This cruise was the last voyage of William Dampier: 'the expedition of 1709 and 1710 had been proposed by Dampier, but he 'was in such reduced circumstances as to engage himself [as] pilot on board the Duke' (Burney). Cooke was second captain on the {i Dutchess} which accompanied Captain Woodes Rogers's {i Duke} on a privateering voyage around the world. Amongst the work's wealth of detail are an account of the sacking of Puna and Guyaquil, the taking of an Acapulco prize ship, and a full translation (including extensive woodcut illustrations of coastal profiles) of a captured Spanish manuscript, effectively being a coasting pilot for the American coast from Tierra del Fuego to California. This was not printed in Rogers's account. Of great interest is the large and detailed folding map of the Amazon river and her tributaries. Cooke claims the map was drawn in 1707 by Jesuits and discovered aboard a Prize captured around that time (he does not specify if this occured during the cruising voyage of the {i Duke} and {i Dutchess).} It was on this voyage that the Scot Alexander Selkirk - the original for Defoe's {i Robinson Crusoe} - was picked up, and this work contains the first printed description of his four-year sojourn on the desolate Juan Fernández Island. Burney tried valiantly to stop the misconception that Selkirk had also been marooned by Dampier, but it makes too good a story. Selkirk was, nonetheless, familiar with Dampier and only agreed to sail once he had established that the famous buccaneer was solely the pilot and not the skipper. Howgego notes that after Selkirk had shipped as second mate on the {i Duke} he 'seemed to get on remarkably well with Dampier'.

Very good. In a custom half morocco slipcase. First edition of both volumes. Cooke was commander of one of the ships in the buccaneering expedition of Capt. Woodes Rogers which circumnavigated the globe, visited the coast of California in 1709, and preyed on Spanish shipping on the west coast of South America. There is an account of California, with a plate showing a native of the region. The expedition also put in at the island of Juan Fernandez, where they discovered the castaway, Alexander Selkirk, the prototype for Robinson Crusoe. The second volume includes a description, taken from a Spanish manuscript, of the west coast of America from Tierra del Fuego to California. A rush to issue an account of this voyage developed between the publishers of this narrative and that of Woodes Rogers. The first volume above is distinguished from the second edition by not having a volume number on the titlepage and having the text that was later duplicated in the second volume.

        The History of Joseph. A Poem. In Six Books. With Cuts proper to each Book

      London: Printed for James Knapton. 1712 - FIRST AND ONLY EDITION. 8vo, 192 x 115 mms., pp. [xii], 179 [180 adverts], engraved frontispiece and 5 other engraved plates (by Kirkall after F. Boitard), contemporary panelled calf; fore-margins of last blank leaves affected by damp with a little loss, last two leaves of text slightly affected by damp but with no loss, front joint slightly cracked, upper rear joint slightly cracked, wear to top and base of spine. Inscribed on upper margin of recto of front free end-paper, "Tho. Bridgemans Book/ the Gift of Mr Webster/ 1728." The history of Joseph as related in Genesis in the Old Testament is one of its most powerful narratives; Rose suggests an analogy between Joseph's life and that of Jesus. Famously, Potiphar's wife, whose name history has never disclosed, tried to seduce him, and on the last occasion, Joseph rushed away, leaving her holding his robe. Rose relates her passion thus: "Not long, howe'er her casual Grief restrains/ Lover's stronger Passion struggling in her Veins./ The friendly Part dismiss'd, her Flame returns, And for her Slave, with other Cause, she mourns. His well-proportion'd Limbs, his manly Grace; His flowing Locks, and his Angelick Face,/ (Guiltless Incentives of her shameless Fault)/ Engage in base Designs her busie Thought./ Of her soft Sex she summons all the Art,/ In equal Ardours to inflame his Heart." Readers unfamiliar with the story will be pleased to hear that she is defeated "in all her lewd Designs"; alas for virtue, Joseph, well, I'm not giving away all the plot, but it's rather a good poem in heroic couplets.

Beautifully engraved map, a reduced from of the wall map, of 't Hooge Heemraedschap van Delfland prepared by Nicolaas and Jacob Kruikius. Decorated with the Delfland coat of arms supported by 2 allegorical figures in its centre: 10 large coats of arms of the water district officials down the left and right sides, an elaborate compass rose (north above right): and pastoral scenes. It shows every city, town and village.The compass rose is remarkable, with a globe at its centre showing Africa, Europe and parts of Asia and South America: with gods representing the sun, moon and planets in the other seven: and a celestial map with figures representing signs of the zodiac between the points.The Delfland dike and water authorities commissioned the surveyors Nicolaas (1678-1754) and Jacob Kruikius (1684-1706) to produce the present map in 1701, and they devoted more than a decade to the task. By the mid-century only one of the original dike and water authorities remained in office. The main map was not revised, but the overview map was replaced with a newly drawn and engraved one, ordered in 1750. °Postma, Kruikius\' Kaart van Delfland 1712

        TYPED LETTER SIGNED (TLS). 1 page, from "The Ancient Hillside Citadel," dated "Feby. 12, 1936, to "Endymion" [Samuel Loveman], with the salutation "Hail," signed "HPL." On recto of a single sheet of 8 1/2 x 11-inch plain paper. Accompanied by AUTOGRAPH POSTCARD SIGNED (APS) from Lovecraft to Loveman, postmarked Boston, MA 2 January 1932, and an envelope addressed to Loveman in Lovecraft's hand with Lovecraft's signature and return address on verso, postmarked Providence, RI 17 September 1930

      Unpublished. Faint mailing creases, but fine. (#109131). The postcard was sent from Cambridge, Mass. and shows the head of a Greek athlete from Harvard's Fogg Art Museum. Oddly, Lovecraft refers to it as a "Herm," which is incorrect. (The word, with a lowercase "h," refers to a kind of statue used in Athens, with the head of a bearded Hermes mounted on a square pillar, in the middle of which, usually, was an erect phallus. They were regarded as sacred objects and used as boundary markers -- and later vandalized so often that intact examples are rare.) Recalls an earlier visit to Cambridge that Lovecraft and Loveman made together. Enumerates the museums seen or scheduled to be seen. Paul Cook, who was there with HPL, has scribbled a postscript. The letter, sent from Providence, touches on overwork, illness, amateur press matters, the latest pulp appearances ("Mountains of Madness", first installment, in February Astounding), social visits, and, in a short but striking passage, the description of his return from a visit to Paterson, NJ. "That night I hopped the coach for ancient Providentium and ran into a snowstorm -- being held up an hour at dawn in the exquisite colonial village of Hampton, Conn. -- with houses dating back to 1712 on every hand, and an ethereal white Georgian steeple peeping over the freshly white-deck'd boughs. The delay was for the sanding of a long, sinuous hill -- and I was sorry when we got in motion again." (If Lovecraft died and went to heaven, it might have looked something like this. Or would it be hell for an old atheist to discover that he'd been wrong? One can imagine the roman a clef Twilight Zone version: the bus swerves, HPL is knocked out, wakes up to this vision of a winter paradise, goes out in his worn suit and wanders about with rapt attention, catching a glimpse here and there of people in Colonial dress who ignore him. Looking into the firelit interior of a house, he wonders why he doesn't feel cold. "It was then that he realized he was dead.") Earlier in the letter HPL says he is sending a copy of his CATS OF ULTHAR, the rare 1935 pamphlet handset by Barlow at his Dragon-Fly Press in Florida and printed in forty-two copies. HPL jokes, "If it doesn't fit into your private collection, you might catalogue it at 9000 bucks or so as an early Dragon-Fly Press item." If Loveman had lived another 60 years or so, he could have done just that. The value of this pamphlet passed the $9000 value level a while back. See in this catalogue item LWC inventory #108200 the copy inscribed by HPL to Loveman, one of the two copies set on special paper (Red Lion Text). See also in this catalogue item LWC inventory #109134 for the original manuscript of this short story. Loveman, a poet and bookdealer, was definitely in the inner circle of HPL's friends. They corresponded, praised each other's work and visited when possible. When, Loveman, a Jew, later discovered from Lovecraft's ex-wife, Sonia, the extent of Lovecraft's anti-Semitism and racism, he burned most of his letters from HPL (as Sonia also did). (Joshi, An H. P. Lovecraft Encyclopedia, p. 158.) Extant letters from HPL to Loveman are rare. This is a particularly significant one, demonstrating one of the paradoxes of Lovecraft, who talked a good game of anti- Semitism, but, when it came down to cases, had warm friendships with some of them and married another. The failure of his marriage had more to do with Sonia being a woman than a Jew. He gave away to Loveman his own special copy of CATS, one that Barlow had intend as HPL's personal copy, one of just two Barlow kept the other one.

"Leonard Welsted, a Westminster and Cambridge man, wrote a good deal of verse and , indeed, hardly deserved, though he had provoked it, his place in the "inferno" of THE DUNCAID even as a versifier [earned him Pope's satire, condemnation and lasting enmity]. But his translation of Longinus does not show any mark of dullness, while the original remarks connected with it show that, if he could not exactly produce poetry, he could appreciate it in Spenser and Shakespeare to a degree not common in his day."

        The Whale Fishery, The Sperm Whale ‘In a Flurry’”

      New York: 19th Century - Currier and Ives “The Whale Fishery, The Sperm Whale ‘In a Flurry’” New York: 19th Century Hand-colored lithograph 32 1/2” x 39” framed “Yankee” or American whaling began simultaneously with the colonization in America in the 1600s. Early colonial whaling, however, was limited to processing whale carcasses that were found afloat or stranded on beaches. “Yankee” whalers soon progressed to killing whales near the shore. By the 18th century they were hunting in the ocean. Harvesting of sperm whales began in New England around 1712 and spread to all oceans. Sperm whale oil was considered the highest quality of whale oils, and was used in the finest lamps and candles. The original centers of early American whaling were Nantucket Island, Cape Cod, and eastern Long Island. Nantucket became the most important of the three until about 1830, when New Bedford, Massachusetts, surpassed it. Other American ports with large fleets were Provincetown, Massachusetts; New London, Connecticut; San Francisco; and Sag Harbor, New York. In all, more than 70 American ports sent out whalers. The peak year for the American whaling industry was 1846, when 736 vessels and 70,000 people were engaged in the industry. By the 1880s, the use of steamships and the proximity of whaling grounds brought the rise of San Francisco as a dominant whaling port. A gradual decline in whaling activity, which began in 1847, was hastened by the reduction in the numbers of whales of many species, including right whales, gray whales, and humpback whales due to over-hunting. The decline was also hastened by the introduction of kerosene as a cheap illuminating fuel, the sinking of numerous whaling vessels by Confederate commerce raiders during the American Civil War (1861-1865), and two disasters that destroyed nearly 50 vessels in the Arctic Ocean in the mid 19th century. The last American whaling vessel sailed in 1928. Throughout this period, with few exceptions, whaling was unregulated, limited only by the number of whales and the demand for whale products. This whaling scene, published by Currier and Ives, depicts the hazardous industry of hunting sperm whales, the largest of the toothed whales. The publishing firm of Currier & Ives created the most popular and highly regarded lithographs of quintessentially American scenes ever produced. The quality, vast scope and engagingly populist style of their works have made their names synonymous with an idealistic vision of 19th-century American promise and optimism. Although the artist for this particular scene is unknown, the illustration is of excellent quality and is a highly desirable image.

        Ardea Nycticorax (egret or heron)

      - Cornelius Nozeman (1712-86) Illustratred plate from Nederlandsche Vogelen Amsterdam: Jan Christian Sepp, 1770-1827 Hand-colored copperplate engravings 33 1/4” x 27 1/4” framed Nederlandsche Vogelen was the first comprehensive account of the avifauna of Holland. The plates depict all species known in the Netherlands at the time of publication. The plates frequently feature eggs and nests; a few are dedicated entirely to these subjects. The text was written by Cornelius Nozeman, a pastor who owned a cabinet of natural history specimens, and on his death, the work was taken over by Dr. Martinus Houttuyn (1720-1798). When he too died, the enterprise was continued probably by the publishers with the assistance of C.J. Temminck, to whom many of the specimens featured in the last two parts of the work belonged. Anker’s definitive catalogue of bird books praises the Nozeman publication for depicting the birds “in their natural surroundings and as far as possible in their natural attitudes.” Another major critic, Sacheverell Sitwell, calls this “an ornament to the ago of Rococo.”
