      Eichstatt, 1713. Hand-coloured engraving. In excellent condition. Basil Besler published "Hortus Eystettensis", the earliest large folio botanical, at Eichstatt near Nuremburg, in 1613. He worked on the drawings for the 374 copper engravings over a period of sixteen years using the plants in the garden of Bishop Johann Conrad von Gemmingen, his patron. Depicted in this florilegium were flowers, herbs, vegetables and newly discovered plants such as tobacco and peppers. Besler was, in modern terms, a botanist and horticulturalist, and he was familiar with real and alleged medicinal properties of various plants. Besler had the good fortune to live at a time when exotic plants were being shipped to Europe from all over the world. The garden that he organized and illustrated for his patron was both ornamental and experimental, and the large book he had engraved after his drawings was unique. The prints, made by a team of master engravers, are strong and exquisitely done.

        Bibliothecae Americanae Primordia. An Attempt Towards laying the Foundation of an American Library, in several books, papers, and writings, humbly given to the Society for Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts ... By a Member of the said Society

      Index by the Rev. Robert Watts. London: printed for J. Churchill, 1713. Quarto signed in 2s. (8 1/4 x 6 1/4 inches). (Lacking the front blank and blank A1 [i.e. blank leaf between the Dedication and the start of the bibliography], Kk1 and Kk2 cut down without affecting the text area but likely supplied from another copy at an early date, light dampstaining). 19th-century red half morocco over marbled paper-covered boards, the border between the leather and marbled paper ruled in gilt on the covers, spine in six compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second, the others with repeat decoration in gilt centering on a flower-spray tool, marbled endpapers Rare copy of "the earliest exclusively American catalogue" (Church): one of only 250 copies printed. "White Kennett, Bishop of Peterborough, gave his extensive collection of Americana to the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts in 1712, with the intention that the gift should be accompanied by a printed catalogue of the collection. This wish was thwarted for a while by the decision to have Robert Watts compile what became an extensive and essential index of 223pp. Kennett had in the meantime continued his collecting at a pace which necessitated the inclusion of 55-page appendix and the catalogue was finally published in 1713. The result is the best catalogue of books relating to America extant, [arranged in chronological order],the titles being copied at full length with the greatest exactness, together with the name of the printer, and the number of pages in each volume...It is rich in English tracts relating to New England" (Rich). Pinelo's Epitome de la biblioteca oriental i occidental (1629) includes a listing of books of Indian and Asian as well as American interest, but Kennett's is the first printed catalogue devoted exclusively to books relating to America. An account of the library is given in the Massachusetts Historical Society, Proceedings , vol. 20 (1883). Despite Kennett's stated wish that the books were intended for the "perpetual use" of the members of the Society a number were later given to the British Museum, and some "had been lost or mislaid" by the time Sotheby's prepared the auction catalogue for the sale of the Society's library in 1917.

        Phytographia Curiosa, exhibens arborum, fruticum, herbarum & florum icones, ducentis & quadraginta quinque tabulis ad vivum delineatis ac artisiciosissime aeri incisis

      Amsterdam: Rod. & Gerh. Westenios, 1713. 2 parts (text and plates) in one volume, folio. (15 5/16 x 9 11/16 inches). Half-title, additional engraved title with elaborate emblematic surround (bound in as frontispiece), letterpress title in red and black, engraved dedication leaf to Dr. Benjamin Fagel incorporating his coat-of-arms, 2 engraved head-pieces (the second repeated once) by J. Baptiste [Adam] after Jan Goeree, woodcut initials and tail-piece, 245 engraved plates of plants, all but one unsigned but some or all possibly by Joseph Mulder. (Paper loss along the fore-edge margin of one plate not affecting the image, ten letters on title in ink facsimile, else scattered minor foxing). 18th-century panelled calf, covers tooled in blind, rebacked to style, spine with raised bands in seven compartments, red morocco lettering piece in the second compartment. (Restoration at the tips). First Latin edition, second issue of the most extraordinary botanical work of the pre-Linnean period, with "illustrations that are remarkable for their elegance and originality" (Oak Spring Flora). This is the second issue of the Latin edition of the author's Naauwkeurige beschryving der aardgewassen (1696) based, in part, on his Waare Oeffning der Planten (1672). Abraham Munting "was an eminent professor of botany and chemistry at the University of Groningen ... [he also] founded one of the most extensive botanical gardens of the period, known as the 'Paradise of Groningen', which he directed from 1658 up until his death in 1683. Munting wrote a number of works on medical-botanical topics, but [the present work] ... enjoyed particular success, at least in part due to the novelty of the plates, which, in a radical departure from ... the traditional florilegium, presented its plant species against charming landscape backgrounds ...The illustrations are remarkable for their elegance and originality ... Each plate shows a different plant in flower, including many exotics from America and other distant lands. The plant dominates the foreground, filling the entire page, often with a detail of the fruit or flowers presented on a smaller scale. In some cases the plants are presented à trompe l'oeil , while in others they are arranged in decorated urns. Some gardening tools are depicted as well. The name of each plant appears written [in Latin] on an elegantly fluttering ribbon or cartouche, or on a crumbling marble plaque. The originality of the work lies, however, in the small landscapes that have been inserted into the background of the plates. Here the artist gave free rein to his imagination, delineating scenes that in reality bore little relation to the habitat of the plant. Pastorals with animals and figures alternate capriously with vistas of walled cities and landscapes containing statues and ruins." ( Oak Spring Flora p.174). Cf. Great Flower Books (1990) p.123 (1702 issue); cf. Hunt 404 (1702 issue); Nissen BBI I 1429; Oak Spring Flora 45.

Containing the facts, proofs and judgements, in these causes. To which is added, A vindication of Robert III., king of Scotland, and all his descendents, from the imputation of bastardy"

      Edinburgh: printed by James Watson. 1713. "8vo, 2 parts in 1, as issued; pp. xiv, [2], 127, [1]; 80; title page and dedication page printed in red and black; slightly later full calf, gilt- decorated spine, and possibly a remboitage binding; a.e.g.; good and sound. With an interesting unattributed inscription on the flyleaf: ""The gift / of His Grace / John, Duke of Buckingham / July the 10. 1713."" And with a subsequent inscription beneath it: ""E libris Samuelis Wesley / E. A. P. G. / ex dono patris."" John Sheffield, 1st Duke of Buckingham and Normanby, KG, PC (1648-1721), was an English poet and notable Tory politician of the late Stuart period, who served as Lord Privy Seal and Lord President of the Council. Samuel Wesley is possibly Samuel Wesley (1662-1735) a clergyman of the Church of England, as well as a poet and a writer of controversial prose, and the father of John Wesley and Charles Wesley, founders of Methodism. But more likely is one of hisother sons, Samuel (1690-1739)."

        Demonstration de l'existence de Dieu tirée de la connoissance de la nature

      Chez Jacques Etienne 1713 - - Chez Jacques Etienne, à Paris 1713, Pet. in-8 (9,5x16,5cm), relié. - Edition originale, rare. La démonstration de l'existence de Dieu tirée de ses attributs [.] parue en 1718 comme une seconde partie n'est en réalité pas une seconde partie. Extraite des manuscrits de Fénelon, cette oeuvre inachevée est en effet antérieure à la Demonstration de l'existence de Dieu tirée de la connoissance de la nature, elle ne repose que sur des fragments d'un projet. En juxtaposant ultérieurement les deux parties, les éditeurs publient en fait deux oeuvres différentes, écrites à des périodes différentes. Reliure en plein maroquin bordeaux glacé fin XIXe signée Chambrolle-Duru. Dos à nerfs janséniste. Titre et date dorés. Riche frise intérieure. Tranches dorées. Une très discrète restauration au mors supérieur. La Démonstration est à la fois une oeuvre philosophique et une oeuvre théologique. Fénelon s'adresse à des esprits forts, ou à des esprits chrétiens dont la foi reposerait sur la raison ; il emprunte ainsi son argumentation à une apologétique de type cartésien. L'idée maîtresse étant que le spectacle de la nature donne à voir l'activité du créateur, fénelon mettant en parallèle l'ordre et l'harmonie du monde à celui de l'action divine, réenchantant ainsi la vision mécaniciste du corps et de l'âme. En outre faute d'une cause commune à l'âme, aux animaux, à l'univers même, l'homme serait ainsi directement confronté à l'existence divine.

Philip Ducarel was possibly the nephew of Andrew Coltee Ducarel (1713-1785) who became Keeper of the Lambeth Palace Library, and was an antiquary and archivist of distinction. In 1711, he collected his mature works into a single volume and added to them extensive notes and commentary, naming the book Characteristics of Men, Manners, Opinions, Times (C). He revised the Characteristics over the course of the next two years, up until his death in 1713. A new edition came out in 1714. Shaftesbury took great pains to design illustrations for the Characteristics, which he thought would advance his central claims as effectively as the written text (see Paknadel 1974) (Source: Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). _____________________ In 1711, the Characteristics of Men, Manners, Opinions, Times appeared in three volumes, also without any name or initials on the title-page, and without even the name of a printer. These volumes contain in addition to the four treatises already mentioned, Miscellaneous Reflections, now first printed, and the Inquiry concerning Virtue and Merit, described as formerly printed from an imperfect copy, now corrected and published intire, and as printed first in 1699. The declining state of Shaftesbury's health rendered it necessary for him to seek a warmer climate and in July 1711 he set out for Italy. He settled at Naples in November, and lived there for more than a year. His principal occupation at this time must have consisted in preparing for the press a second edition of the Characteristics, which appeared in 1713, soon after his death. The copy, carefully corrected in his own handwriting, is preserved in the British Library. (Wikipedia)

With an intriguing gift inscription probably to John Rawdon, first Earl of Moira who died in 1793 from one John Ball: 'Honoratissimo Comiti de Mojral misit Johannes Ball A.M. Michael Maittaire (also Michael) (1668 – 7 September 1747) was a French-born classical scholar and bibliographer in England, and a tutor to Lord Philip Stanhope. He edited an edition of Quintus Curtius Rufus, later owned by Thomas Jefferson. His works included a grammar of English (1712). He was born in France of Huguenot parents, who around the time of the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes moved to England. He obtained a king's scholarship at Westminster School in 1682. Richard Busby, then head-master, made him concentrate on the study of Greek and Latin. On leaving school he went to The Hague, where he was received by the Vaillants, and then to Paris. On returning to England he gained the goodwill of Robert South, at the time a canon of Christ Church, Oxford; it is said that he compiled a list of the Greek words that were wrongly accented in the works of William Sherlock. South made him 'canoneer' student of Christ Church, and he took the degree of M.A. on 23 March 1696, being incorporated M.A. at Cambridge in 1708. In 1695 he was appointed second master of Westminster, but resigned in 1699 and kept a private school, one of the pupils at which was Stephen Martin Leake. Late in life he was Latin tutor to Stanhope, Lord Chesterfield's son. In 1728 he was living in a house in Orange Street, near Holborn, London. Maittaire died on 7 September 1747, aged 79. Over fifty years he had formed a large library, rich in early printed editions. It was sold by auction in London by Cock & Langford, the sale beginning on 21 November 1748 and lasting for forty-four evenings. Maittaire began to publish about 1706. His major works are his Annales Typographici and other writings on the history of printing, and of editions of the classics, especially the series of Latin classics printed in duodecimo by Jacob Tonson and Watts of London from 1713 to 1719. Pope had made Maittaire in the manuscript of the Dunciad an inhabitant of the "Kingdom of Dullness", but the lines were not printed, after a request made for their suppression by Edward Harley, 2nd Earl of Oxford, a patron of Maittaire. Extracts from Maittaire's letters to the Earl of Oxford are printed in John Nichols's Literary Anecdotes, and other letters by him are in George Ballard's collection in the Bodleian Library. In his earliest letters he signs his name 'Michell Mattaire'. (Wikipedia) Sprache: Latin Overall a very good set with only few signs of wear. With an intriguing gift inscription probably to John Rawdon, first Earl of Moira who died in 1793 from one John Ball: 'Honoratissimo Comiti de Mojral misit Johannes Ball A.M. Original Hardcover / The books are bound in attractive contemporary panelled calf which has been sympathetically rebacked, preserving the original spine labels. The two volumes have red and black printed title pages with a list of subscribers and interspersed with copper engraved vignettes. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        JOURNAL HISTORIQUE DU DERNIER VOYAGE QUE FEU M. DE LA SALE FIT DANS LE GOLFE DE MEXIQUE, POUR TROUVER L'EMBOUCHURE, & LE COURS DE LA RIVIERE DE MISSICIPI [sic], NOMMEE A PRESENT LA RIVIERE DE SAINT LOUIS, QUI TRAVERSE LA LOUISIANE

      Paris, 1713. 12mo. Antique half calf and marbled boards. Ink notations on front endpapers, light scattered foxing. Map is bright and fresh. Very good. One of the premiere accounts of La Salle's tragic final voyage, compiled from the diary of his close subordinate. The party embarked in 1684, ostensibly to establish a French base at the mouth of the Mississippi as headquarters for operations, but as well to push as far as possible into the region in order to gain a foothold against the Spanish. In fact, and via a conscious deceit, the base was established at Espiritu Santo Bay in Texas, where the party spent two years making excursions into the surrounding territory. When expected reinforcements failed to appear, La Salle and his men determined to return to Canada via the Mississippi; however, a member of the expedition assassinated La Salle when they reached the Trinity River, and the company split up. Some of the survivors, including Joutel, pressed on, reaching Canada by way of the Mississippi and Arkansas rivers. Joutel's diary passed to other hands prior to publication, and the present edition, edited by De Michel, is somewhat abridged. It was published to counter the errors in Tonti's DERNIERES DECOUVERTES... (1697). The complete journal was not published until 1878, as part of Margry's compilation. Joutel's JOURNAL is one of the major works of the period on the region, and "of the three narratives of this journey, those of Joutel, Cavelier, and Douay, the first is by far the best" (Francis Parkman). The splendid map, based on Joutel's own observations, is the first map showing the results of La Salle's journeys and provides, for its time, a very accurate delineation of the course of the Mississippi from its northern headwaters to its mouth, as well as that of the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence, complete with a beautiful engraved cartouche of Niagara Falls. A handsome copy.

        A Set of Four Hand-Coloured Tulips.

      Nuremberg 1713 - Four engravings with fine later hand-colouring. Framed and glazed, 64 x 55.5 cm. Magnificent plates from "Hortus Eystettensis", one of the earliest and most famous works in the field. The Hortus Eystettensis is a pictorial record of the flowers grown in the greatest German garden of its time, that of Prince Bishop of Eichstatt, Johann Conrad von Gemmingen. The garden was begun by Joachim Camerarius in 1596 and, after his death in 1598, completed by Basil Besler, a pharmacist from Nuremberg. A visitor, Philipp Hainhofer, in 1611 marvelled at the eight gardens, each containing 'flowers from a different country; they varied in the beds and flowers, especially in the beautiful roses, lilies, tulips.' The Hortus records this variety and beauty. The book is exceptional in every sense; in its variety and range of flowers, in its size, in its fine quality of engraving. It is also one of the earliest records of flowers from a specific, documented garden. Besler was asked to complete the work by Gemmingen in 1606; the huge nature of the task was clear to Besler and he enlisted the help of his younger brother Hieronymus and Ludwig Jungermann, a nephew of Camerarius. Printing the Hortus may have begun as early as 1607. Drawings were made in situ and from specimens sent by the Bishop to Nuremberg; the Bishop reported to Hainhofer that he had boxes of fresh flowers sent every week to Besler at Nuremberg for sketching. A team of at least 10 engravers were employed to translate the drawings to copperplates. The gardens, along with most of the town of Eichstatt, were destroyed by the invading Swedish troops under Herzog Bernhard von Weimar in 1633-4, although they were partially restored by later bishops. Many of the original drawings survive in the University Library, Erlangen.

There is a town plan in the upper right with an alphabetical key identifying the colleges and other buildings of note.

        THE CASE OF THE LORD CONINGSBY'S TWO INFANT DAUGHTERS, WITH RESPECT TO THE BILL NOW PASSING THE HONOURABLE HOUSE OF COMMONS, FOR SALE OF THE ESTATE OF THE LATE EARL OF RANELAGH AT CHELSEA AND CRANBORNE, IN THE COUNTY OF MIDDLESEX AND BERKS [caption title].

      [London? ca. ]. 1713 - Broadsheet, 15 x 11 inches. [1]p., plus printed docket title on verso. Ornamental initial. Dbd. Small folio. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Small portion of inner margin excised, with no loss to text. Mild foxing. Very good. Richard Jones, 3rd Viscount and 1st Earl of Ranelagh (1641-1712), was an Anglo-Irish aristocrat, Irish politician, and Member of Parliament in the English House of Commons (his peerage was Irish, which did not disqualify him) from 1685 to 1703. In 1702, discrepancies were discovered in his accounts as paymaster-general of the army; his resignation from that position was interpreted as an admission of guilt, and he was expelled from Parliament in 1703 and convicted of "defalcations to the amount of 72,000l." (DNB). The scandalous nature of Ranelagh's life in both political and personal realms led the DNB to note, "Perhaps the only redeeming feature in Ranelagh's character was the unaffected pleasure he took in building and gardening." He helped design and build the structures and gardens of an architecturally celebrated pair of estates in Chelsea and Cranborne Chase, near Windsor. In the present leaflet, advocates of Ranelagh's two granddaughters, Margaret and Frances Coningsby, petition Parliament to ensure that, if any property remain from Ranelagh's estates after being sold to pay off his substantial debts, it be given to them, as per his wish. A scarce and early example of lobbying literature, which first began proliferating during the major changes in British government in the mid-1710s. ESTC records copies at four locations in the U.K. and one in the U.S., the University of Kansas. DNB X, pp.1042- 4.

Cohen ne cite que l'édition de 1740 avec 9 figures et ignore cette première édition. L'originale du texte est paru en 1677. Chaque partie est précédée d'un faux-titre. Deux pages de titre ont été reliées à la suite, la première à l'adresse de Van Buren à La Haye, porte le titre "Avantures de mademoiselle de Meyrac, histoire véritable" ; la seconde à l'adresse de Claude Jordan à Amsterdam avec pour titre : "L'héroine mousquetaire, histoire véritable". Ajoutons que le privilège in fine pour 1712 est de Paris. L'exemplaire de la British Library, qui ne contient que 4 figures est à l'adresse de Pierre Witte à Paris. Il n'y a eu certainement qu'un tirage à Paris, mais on y a joint des pages de titre différentes pour les vendre. Nous n'avons trouvé aucun autre exemplaire de cette édition dans les catalogues français. Reliure en plein maroquin rouge glacé de la fin du XIXe signée Hardy. Dos à nerfs orné. Triple filet d'encadrement sur les plats. Riche frise intérieure. Tranches dorées. Au plat inférieur, petits accrocs le long des filets d'encadrement. Très bel exemplaire, d'une parfaite fraîcheur, parfaitement établi dans une reliure de maître. Jean de Préchac, décédé en 1720, fut l'un des auteurs les plus prolifiques de la fin du XVIIe, auteur principalement de nouvelles et romans historiques et d'aventure, comme c'est le cas avec L'héroïne mousquetaire, histoire d'un fille noble du Béarn, qui en se travestissant pour fuir le courroux de son père, trouva sa véritable voix dans le maniement des armes et devint mousquetaire du roi. On notera que le roman met en scène une héroïne dans un rôle d'homme, fait très rare.

        THE CASE OF THE LORD CONINGSBY'S TWO INFANT DAUGHTERS, WITH RESPECT TO THE BILL NOW PASSING THE HONOURABLE HOUSE OF COMMONS, FOR SALE OF THE ESTATE OF THE LATE EARL OF RANELAGH AT CHELSEA AND CRANBORNE, IN THE COUNTY OF MIDDLESEX AND BERKS [caption title]

      [London? ca. 1713].. Broadsheet, 15 x 11 inches. [1]p., plus printed docket title on verso. Ornamental initial. Dbd. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Small portion of inner margin excised, with no loss to text. Mild foxing. Very good. Richard Jones, 3rd Viscount and 1st Earl of Ranelagh (1641- 1712), was an Anglo-Irish aristocrat, Irish politician, and Member of Parliament in the English House of Commons (his peerage was Irish, which did not disqualify him) from 1685 to 1703. In 1702, discrepancies were discovered in his accounts as paymaster-general of the army; his resignation from that position was interpreted as an admission of guilt, and he was expelled from Parliament in 1703 and convicted of "defalcations to the amount of 72,000l" (DNB). The scandalous nature of Ranelagh's life in both political and personal realms led the DNB to note: "Perhaps the only redeeming feature in Ranelagh's character was the unaffected pleasure he took in building and gardening." He helped design and build the structures and gardens of an architecturally celebrated pair of estates in Chelsea and Cranborne Chase, near Windsor. In the present leaflet, advocates of Ranelagh's two granddaughters, Margaret and Frances Coningsby, petition Parliament to ensure that, if any property remain from Ranelagh's estates after being sold to pay off his substantial debts, it be given to them, as per his wish. A scarce and early example of lobbying literature, which first began proliferating during the major changes in British government in the mid-1710s. ESTC records copies at four locations in the United Kingdom and one in the United States, the University of Kansas. DNB X, pp.1042-4.

        The Laws, of Her Majesties Colony of New-York, as they were enacted the Governour, Council and General Assembly, for the time being, in divers sessions, the first of which began April the 9th, Annoq; Dom. 1691

      William Bradford, New York 1713 - (11 x 7 inches). [6],88,151-245 [i.e., 253]pp. Leaves of opening table appear to be cancels, with pages pasted over the first printings, as issued. Early 20th-century pebbled morocco, spine with raised bands in six compartments, lettered in gilt William Bradford's laws of New York: a major early New York imprint, from the press of its first printer. A major early New York imprint from the press of William Bradford, the "pioneering printer of the English middle colonies" (DAB) and first printer of New York. Bradford (1663-1752) originally settled in Pennsylvania, where he began operating a printing press in 1685 and a bookstore in 1688. Controversies within the Quaker community, with Bradford supporting the dissident George Keith, led to the temporary seizure of his types and paper in 1692, and in 1693 he moved to New York. The present documents are among the earliest of official New York imprints. The present example of THE LAWS. is the third collection of New York laws, after the first of 1694 and 1710, and covers legislation passed from 1691 to 1713. Laws here include acts "for quieting and settling the Disorders that have lately happened within this Province" (1691), "for restraining and punishing Privateers and Pyrates" (1693 and 1698), and "against Jesuites and Popish Priests" (1700), as well as numerous acts "for Regulating Slaves" and one for "Baptizing them" (1706). The index reflects the odd pagination in the volume, which skips from page 88 to page 155. This is due in part to the fact that they are a composite of Bradford's various separately issued official publications of New York laws. The two leaves following the titlepage are an index, the present copy being comprised of individually printed pages pasted together to form one double-sided leaf. Evans 1636, 1637, 1638.
