        The Works Of Dionysius Longinus, On the Sublime: Or, A Treatise Concerning the Sovereign Perfection of Writing. Translated from the Greek. With Remarks on The English Poets By Mr. Welsted

      London: Sam Briscoe, 1712. leather_bound. Contemporary full brown calf. Near fine./No Dust Jacket. 192 [XIV] pages. 19 1/2 x 12 cm. [A4,a4, B -O8] CHEL. Vol. IX, p.188. "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." Early, faint owner inscription on title, text fresh and clean except for light stains, mostly marginal last few leaves -- O1-O8, raised bands, spine label.

        115 Broadsides Announcing Examinations and Other Academic Events

      1712. [Legal Education]. [University of Louvain]. [115 Broadsides Announcing Examinations and Other Academic Events in the Faculty of Laws]. Louvain, 1712-1794. 115 folio broadsides (17" x 13"). Light toning, some minor stains, flaws, tears or worming, small stab holes to top center margins (for filing), all generally in very good condition, though one broadside has flaws affecting text. 47 broadsides have brief contemporary annotations (usually a note on the examination on verso, some notes relate to legal content). An interesting collection. * Disputations were important events in the early modern university. They functioned as exams, inaugural events and teaching exercises. Our collection offers 115 unlocated broadsides from 18th-century Louvain, mostly from the 1770s, advertising disputations in law. The broadsides list the name of the candidate or speaker, the date of the event and the legal passages and questions that will form the basis of the examination or disputation and the presiding professor or respondent. 46 examples in this collection are the equivalent of present-day bar exams. Two of the broadsides are for theological disputations on law-related subjects and one is a broadside poem in Dutch from 1712 congratulating a law student (one Jan Baptist Coeck) for having passed his exam. 47 items have annotations. Most are notes relating to the event, some are jurisprudential comments. A complete list of the broadsides is available on request.

        Il Newtonianismo per Le Dame, Ovvero Dialoghi Sopra La Luce e i Colori.Naples: 1737.

      First edition, first issue, of one of the earliest and most influential popularizations of Newtonian science, not just optics (as stated on the title) but the whole system including universal gravitation. "Translated into six languages and published in thirty editions, it served as one of the main channels through which Newtonian ideas reached the general European public (Gjertsen, <i>Newton Handbook</i>, p. 14).<br/><br/> The work takes the form of a series of dialogues with the 'Marchese di E?', in which the two keep up a gallant banter as she is quickly drawn into the romance of science, though as Algarotti warns, in speaking of Descartes, 'The Mathematicians... are said to resemble Lovers. If what you grant them at first be ever so little, they know how to make so good an Advantage of it, as to lead you insensibly further than you ever imagined'. So keen is the Marchese to continue their conversations that when she sees a tiresome sonneteer approaching, she asks Algarotti what to do to fend him off and they agree to talk mathematics until he gives up. And when Algarotti explains universal gravitation, the Marchese muses, 'I cannot help thinking... that this proportion in the Squares of the Distance of Places, or rather of Times, is observed even in Love. Thus after Eight days Absence, Love becomes sixty-four times less than it was the first Day, and according to this Proportion it must soon be entirely obliterated. I fancy there will be found, especially in the present Age, very few Experiments to the contrary'. <br/><br/> The frontispiece shows Algarotti (1712-64) with the Marquise du Chatelet, suggesting that Algarotti originally intended to dedicate the book to her (as she had expected). In the event the dedication was to the old Cartesian Fontenelle, and the frontispiece was not used in later editions. Piazzetta, who with Tiepolo dominated eighteenth-century history painting in Venice, was also widely known for his delightful small secular illustrations for printed books. <br/><br/> The work was issued again later in the same year with the errata corrected, and a second edition appeared in 1739. It was translated into English by the poet Elizabeth Carter, also in 1739, and continued to be published in various languages for the next hundred years (the above quotations are from Carter's version, I, p. 48 and II, p. 170). <br/><br/> Babson 145 (lacking frontispiece); Wallis 194.. 4to (220 x 160 mm) pp. xi, [1], 300, [4: one page of errata, last three blank], including engraved frontispiece by Marco Aloise Pitteri (1702-86) after Giambattista Piazzetta (1682-1754). Contemporary blind-ruled vellum, red speckled edges, black lettering-piece on spine, first and final leaves with some light spotting

        A Cruising Voyage round the World

      London,: Printed for A. Bell and B. Lintot,, 1712.. Octavo, five folding maps including the frontispiece, old ownership inscription to title page, bookplates; a good copy in old dark calf, rebacked with most of original spine laid down. First edition of one of the classics of British buccaneering, a great adventure story and an important Pacific voyage account which is 'very rare' (Borba de Moraes). Despite its relevance to Dampier, who sailed as pilot on this privateering expedition which crossed the Pacific to Asia, this work was not included in the 1729 collected works, making this an appealing addition for owners of that set (see catalogue number 121).Rogers great success was the capture of the Manila galleon at Puerto Seguro, but he also rescued Alexander Selkirk - the prototype for Robinson Crusoe - from Juan Fernandez Island. Rogers' eye-witness account is rich in stirring adventure and gives a wonderfully atmospheric account of the buccaneering life, not hesitating to show himself as a tough captain controlling an errant crew. Although the cruise amassed tremendous loot, conflict between Rogers' and his men dragged on for years in the courts, and Dampier never lived to see his share, dying in 1715.The work also contains and important early description of California (pp. 279-312). The significant 56-page Appendix, with four folding charts, is sub-titled 'A Description of the Coast, Roads, Harbours, Rocks, Shoals, Islands, Capes, Makings of Land, Courses and Distances, from Acapulco... to the Island of Chiloe... From the best Spanish Manuscripts taken in the South-Sea'. There is mention of this on the title-page too: 'with maps of all the Coast, from the best Spanish Manuscript Draughts...'. For the buccaneers such maps wrenched from the Spanish were as good as treasure and equally to be boasted of.Rogers's account went through four editions, all scarce. This copy originally belonged to Sir James Agnew of Lochnaw, and has his armorial bookplate.Borba de Moraes, p. 744; Cowan, p. 194; Hill, 1479; NMM, Piracy & Privateering, 472; Sabin, 72753; Streeter (Jr.) sale; Wagner, 'Spanish Southwest', 78.

The third book offers similar advice to women: Make-Up, But In Private, Beware of False Lovers, and Try Young and Older Lovers.

        Catalogue des Livres, Estampes & Desseins du Cabinet des beaux Arts, & des Sciences,

      appartenent au Baron Tessin, Marèchal de la Cour du Roy & Sur-Intendent de Battiments & Jardins Royaux de Suede. 2 p.l., 124 pp. Small 4to, edition binding of cont. speckled sheep (a few unimportant defects to spine), spine gilt, a.e.g. Stockholm: J.G. Matthieu, 1712. This catalogue -- which is of the greatest rarity -- describes one of the choicest collections of books and art of the early 18th century, comprising about 1700 books, manuscripts, and many thousands of drawings. The collection was formed by Nicodemus Tessin (1654-1728), a member of the prominent Swedish family and an architect by profession, who was Superintendent of Public Buildings in Sweden. He was one of the great European architects of the late 17th and early 18th centuries; his whole career was, however, limited to his native country of Sweden. His duties extended far beyond building and maintenance: he had to design court festivals and funerals and take responsibility for almost all events of a visual nature in Stockholm. Tessin was also one of the greatest art and book collectors of Europe and bought from all the leading dealers in Paris for an extended period. His agent in Paris was Daniel Cronström (1655-1719), Sweden&#39;s First Secretary in Paris and later Ambassador to France from 1703. The first part of the catalogue (pp. 1-52), listing circa 700 items, is devoted to architecture and art in their widest aspects: architecture proper, fortification, garden architecture, works on perspective and painting, ornamental engraving, archeology (including an extensive collection of early works on Rome), interior decoration, etc. The catalogue also describes drawings by such artists as Leonardo, Raphael, Caracci, Poussin, Coypel, and others. These drawings, while briefly described in only five pages of the catalogue, comprise about 18,000 items. The second part -- about 800 works -- is a collection of books and manuscripts on all sorts of public festivities: royal entries, tournaments and carousels; theater and opera decoration and performances; "fêtes galantes," masques and ballets, fireworks and illuminations; sacred festivities and processions; funeral processions and decorations; and costume balls. This section is very remarkable from a bibliographical point of view as it provides exact descriptions giving not only imprint date and printing place, but also the number of plates. The majority of Tessin&#39;s book collection is now in the Royal Library of Sweden and the prints and drawings are preserved in the Nationalmuseum. Our copy does not contain the very rare supplement of 17 pages, which is not present in most of the few known copies (such as the only example listed in N.U.C.). A fine copy. Unknown to Ruggieri. Bookplate of the Fideikommissbiblioteket. .

        Sei omelie di nostro Signore papa Clemente Undecimo Esposte in versi da Alessandro Guidi

      Rome: Francesco Gonzaga, 1712. Extremely rare first edition of this luxuriously illustrated anthology of extracts from papal sermons delivered between 1703-09, in Latin prose and facing Italian verse: an unusual example of Baroque ecclesiastical culture from the pontificate of Clement XI. On the basis of extreme rarity and contents, the volume numbers among those commemorative and honorific volumes which were never sold in the trade, but offered as a ceremonial gift to cardinals, ambassadors, and other important personages&#151;corroborated by the ownership inscription in the present volume by a monsignor during Clement&#146;s papacy. The volume is singular in our experience for its contents. Latin extracts of Clement&#146;s sermons, generally rather brief, are printed on the left side of the page, then freely and somewhat copiously versified in Italian by the poet Guidi. The sparsity of the elegantly printed text leaves positively wasteful margins! Each sermon is preceded by a full-page engraving on the subject of the sermon (the Holy Family adoring the Christ Child for Christmas, the Resurrection for Easter, etc.) designed by Pietro Leone Ghezzi, one of the principal artists in Clement&#146;s retinue, and engraved by Roman engravers generally also associated with Clementine projects (Frey, van Westerhout etc.) The designs were made expressly for the present volume and are echoed, as it were, in a series of initials and vignettes devoted to the same theme; as such, they must have been engraved for the present volume and not simply taken from the printer&#146;s stock. If somewhat overshadowed by Maratti in his lifetime and by his epoch-making role as the first professional caricaturist, Ghezzi (1674-1755) was nonetheless an important painter of religious subjects, who worked on Albani&#146;s most prestigious public projects. The surfaces of Ghezzi&#146;s paintings were considerably less finished than those of Maratti, and he seems more receptive to Venetian color and unfinishedness&#151;thus showing a different aspect of Albani taste. Ghezzi was commissioned in 1712 (the year this book was published) to paint The Election of St. Fabian for the Albani Chapel in S. Sebastiano fuori le Mura. Within the next decade, he helped paint the frescos the ancient basilica of S. Clemente and the nave decoration of St. John Lateran. His portraits, including one of Clement XI, are unusually informal and realistic, possibly due to Ghezzi&#146;s experience at caricature. Alessandro Guidi (1650-1712), who translated the sermons, was a prolific Arcadian poet. OCLC records a single copy (Berkeley), and we locate no additional American copies.. Large 4to.

        Sei omelie di nostro Signore papa Clemente Undecimo Esposte in versi da Alessandro Guidi

      Francesco Gonzaga Rome: Francesco Gonzaga, 1712. Extremely rare first edition of this luxuriously illustrated anthology of extracts from papal sermons delivered between 1703-09, in Latin prose and facing Italian verse: an unusual example of Baroque ecclesiastical culture from the pontificate of Clement XI. On the basis of extreme rarity and contents, the volume numbers among those commemorative and honorific volumes which were never sold in the trade, but offered as a ceremonial gift to cardinals, ambassadors, and other important personages&#151;corroborated by the ownership inscription in the present volume by a monsignor during Clement&#146;s papacy. The volume is singular in our experience for its contents. Latin extracts of Clement&#146;s sermons, generally rather brief, are printed on the left side of the page, then freely and somewhat copiously versified in Italian by the poet Guidi. The sparsity of the elegantly printed text leaves positively wasteful margins! Each sermon is preceded by a full-page engraving on the subject of the sermon (the Holy Family adoring the Christ Child for Christmas, the Resurrection for Easter, etc.) designed by Pietro Leone Ghezzi, one of the principal artists in Clement&#146;s retinue, and engraved by Roman engravers generally also associated with Clementine projects (Frey, van Westerhout etc.) The designs were made expressly for the present volume and are echoed, as it were, in a series of initials and vignettes devoted to the same theme; as such, they must have been engraved for the present volume and not simply taken from the printer&#146;s stock.If somewhat overshadowed by Maratti in his lifetime and by his epoch-making role as the first professional caricaturist, Ghezzi (1674-1755) was nonetheless an important painter of religious subjects, who worked on Albani&#146;s most prestigious public projects. The surfaces of Ghezzi&#146;s paintings were considerably less finished than those of Maratti, and he seems more receptive to Venetian color and unfinishedness&#151;thus showing a different aspect of Albani taste. Ghezzi was commissioned in 1712 (the year this book was published) to paint The Election of St. Fabian for the Albani Chapel in S. Sebastiano fuori le Mura. Within the next decade, he helped paint the frescos the ancient basilica of S. Clemente and the nave decoration of St. John Lateran. His portraits, including one of Clement XI, are unusually informal and realistic, possibly due to Ghezzi&#146;s experience at caricature. Alessandro Guidi (1650-1712), who translated the sermons, was a prolific Arcadian poet. OCLC records a single copy (Berkeley), and we locate no additional American copies.. Large 4to. [28 x 20.5 cm], engraved portrait of Clement XI, xvi pp., full-page engraving, 213 pp., including 5 full-page engravings paginated with text. 18th-c. vellum over boards, spine with 5 raised bands and red morocco label, gilt-stamped; covers with large blind-tooled central ornament, blind-tooled filets and ornaments.

        A New Map of Germany, Hungary, Transilvania & the Suisse Cantons, with many Remarks not extant in any map. According to ye newest and most Exact observations

      London: Moll, Midwinter, and Thomas Bowles, 1712 [but c. 1720]. Engraved with period outline colour. Browning at edges, some small marginal tears. 24 1/8 x 39 3/4 inches. 24 7/8 x 40 7/8 inches. Herman Moll clearly undertook the making of this map of Germany with great enthusiasm. With its portrait of the Diet, it suggests Germany, Austria, Hungary and Eastern Europe as far as the Ottoman Empire as a vast confederation, essentially a parliamentary Holy Roman Empire. The complex array of dominions is laid out on a large scale that is quite readable and generally correct.. Moll offers additional information about many regions by naming the resource primarily associated with it, for example, beer with Hamburg and salt with Trieste. Furthermore, he locates many copper, iron and silver mines. It is also an unabashedly English map of the continent in that it includes the route taken by the great general John Churchill (1650-1722) in the 1704 campaign during the War of the Spanish Succession, noting the battles with, of course, the Battle of Blenheim. The map is dedicated to Marlborough and portrays him on his horse crushing his adversaries. The inset view of "the General Diet of the Empire or Parliament..." endeavors to equate the Electoral College with the English Parliament. Over the doorway is a sign which reads, "The Liberty of Germany". "The Publick Good" and "the Comon Necessity" are two figures standing in the doorway. Within is a large gathering of ecclesiastical and secular princes as well as the nine Electors, the most recent addition to the Electorate being the Elector of Hanover, as of 1692. The Elector of Hanover at the time the map was made was to become George I of Great Britain. The present map was part of Herman Moll&#39;s magnificent folio work, a New and Compleat Atlas. Moll was the most important cartographer working in London during his era, a career that spanned over fifty years. His origins have been a source of great scholarly debate; however, the prevailing opinion suggests that he hailed from the Hanseatic port city of Bremen, Germany. Joining a number of his countrymen, he fled the turmoil of the Scanian Wars for London, and in 1678 is first recorded as working there as an engraver for Moses Pitt on the production of the English Atlas. It was not long before Moll found himself as a charter member of London&#39;s most interesting social circle, which congregated at Jonathan&#39;s Coffee House at Number 20 Exchange Alley, Cornhill. It was at this establishment that speculators met to trade equities (most notoriously South Sea Company shares). Moll&#39;s coffeehouse circle included the scientist Robert Hooke, the archaeologist William Stuckley, the authors Jonathan Swift and Daniel Defoe, and the intellectually-gifted pirates William Dampier, Woodes Rogers and William Hacke. From these friends, Moll gained a great deal of privileged information that was later conveyed in his cartographic works, some appearing in the works of these same figures. Moll was highly astute, both politically and commercially, and he was consistently able to craft maps and atlases that appealed to the particular fancy of wealthy individual patrons, as well as the popular trends of the day. In many cases, his works are amongst the very finest maps of their subjects ever created with toponymy in the English language. Furthermore, Moll is one of the few mapmakers who merits the term "Innovative". English mapmakers prior to Moll tried to imitate Dutch maps as nearly as possible, whereas Moll seems to have largely disregarded Dutch precedents. Removing all the Baroque stylistic elements, Moll replaced decoration with things that interested him about the places depicted, either pictorially or verbally. And he was right to do so. His notes and illustrations are more interesting than the putti and mythical gods of the late Dutch maps.

        C. Julii Caesaris quae extant. Accuratissimè cum libris editis & MSS optimis collata, recognita & correcta

      London: Jacob Tonson,, 1712. Accesserunt annotationes Samuelis Clarke. S.T.P. Item indices locorum, rerumque & verborum utilissimae. Tabulis aeneis ornata. Royal folio (488 × 326 mm). Contemporary panelled calf, neatly rebacked and recornered. Double-page engraved title dated 1712 (ESTC notes the existence of copies in which the engraved title is dated 1710, but this is considered as a variant rather than indicative of a distinct state), 2 engraved portraits (one of John Duke of Marlborough by Vertue after Kneller), 6 maps (one hand-coloured in outline), 78 plates and plans, 55 of them double-page or folding, by Huyberts and others (all these sequentially numbered 1 to 87); numerous engraved initials and vignettes to text. Engraved armorial bookplate of William, Lord Cowper (1665&#150;1723), politician and lord chancellor, to front pastedown; modern leather book label. A very good copy. First edition, deluxe issue on large and thick paper, of Samuel Clarke&#39;s Caesar, justly regarded as one of the finest examples of eighteenth-century English publishing: "The most sumptuous classical work which this country has produced" (Lowndes). As a scholarly edition, it was highly praised by Addison in the Spectator (no. 367), while the classical scholar and bibliographer Edward Harwood declared it the best edition in his Biographica Classica, 1778. "Although his Caesar achieved elegance mainly through profuse ornament, the typography, nonetheless, has qualities of stateliness and dignity which set the book far above the usual product of the time and place" (Great Books). Its engraved images of ancient British warriors, with elaborately painted bodies, and of Druidical priests and cultic practices like the giant Wicker Man, have entered the popular imagination and have been influential in shaping a distinctly British sense of historical identity. The book is notable for the impressive double-page image of the bison (described in book 6 of De bello gallico) which is liable to be removed as a decorative plate.

        ?The Whale Fishery, The Sperm Whale ?In a Flurry??

      Currier and Ives?The Whale Fishery, The Sperm Whale ?In a Flurry??New York: 19th CenturyHand-colored lithograph32 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.

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." Early, faint owner inscription on title, text fresh and clean except for light stains, mostly marginal last few leaves -- O1-O8, raised bands, spine label.
