        Windsor-Forest. To the Right Honourable George Lord Lansdown

      London: Printed for Bernard Lintott 1713. - Folio, pp. [2], 18; slight spotting but a very good copy, disbound.First edition of Pope's second separately published poem, preceded by An Essay on Criticism in 1711. Written in the tradition that young poets begin with pastoral verse, Windsor-Forest, with its epigraph from Virgil's Eclogues, was the poem that first won Swift's regard and laid foundations for the 'most celebrated literary friendship of the earlier eighteenth century' (Oxford DNB).The poem takes its title from the royal forest which surrounded the farming village of Binfield in Berkshire, where Pope lived from the age of eleven – anti-Catholic legislation had forced his family to leave London in 1692. 'Granted the idealization of the English countryside the scenery it describes corresponds with remarkable accuracy to features actually present in the landscape' (Maynard Mack). Pope rescued the earlier, descriptive, section of the poem from his own juvenilia. The conclusion, with its vision of the peace that was hoped for following the Treaty of Utrecht, gives it a political dimension. The oaks of Windsor forest become a symbol of Englishness and, significantly for Pope, of the Stuarts. The prophecy that the trees will 'rush' bravely into the seas as new ships for naval conquests is a further endorsement for Queen Anne's reign. 'Non injussa cano' begins the epigraph, 'not without warrant I sing' (Virgil, Eclogues, vi.9): Pope's warrant for the concluding lines in particular was the encouragement of the dedicatee, the Tory statesman and poet, George Granville.'Pope was aware that the treaty of Utrecht was supposed to give Britain increased access to the slave trade. Yet his concluding vision explicitly includes abolition of slavery (ll. 407–12). Among scores of poems on the peace, Windsor-Forest appears to be the only one to mention actual (not metaphorical) slavery and oppose it' (Oxford DNB).Foxon P987; Griffith 9; Rothschild 1567.

        Mayor for Life" - the sale of Municipal Offices in France]. SAMMELBAND of 3 MSS and 2 printed documents, including "Edit du roy portant création de maires perpétuels et d'assesseurs dans les hostels de ville et communautez du royaume. Donné à Versailles au mois d'Aoust 1692."

      December 1713 - July 1714 - Folio: together 3 manuscripts + 2 printed texts loosely stitched): 10 pp., 1 blank f., 3 pp. (written on vellum), 8 pp. Sewn to: "Declaration du Roy pour le Reglement des fonctions des Maires & de laurs Lieutenans." Paris, 19 Aug. 1702 (11 Sept. 1702) + "Edit du Roy, portant creation de Maires perpetuels." Paris, Aug. 1692 (27 Aug. 1692). + 1 blank f. (docket). Worn and partially defective; some staining, and priced accordingly. Manuscript and printed documents which illustrate the legislation and regulations of mayors in France, and the sale of municipal offices during the late 17th- and early 18th-century. The present collection a printed copy of the actual 1692 Royal Edict which authorizes the sales of mayoral offices; moreover, there is a contemporary MS account of a lawsuit by such a (former) mayor against the town of Arras. The significance of this rare Edict is described by Michael P. Breen: "In the early 1690s, as the monarchy struggled to keep its armies in the field against the combined forces of England, the Dutch Republic, Austria, and the Holy Roman Empire, it began aggressively to tap the wealth of France's towns, selling virtually all existing municipal offices and creating new ones for sale. In August 1692, Louis XIV created offices of "perpetual mayors" along with new assesseurs in all walled cities except Paris and Lyon. The threat of losing control over their city's principal office, it appears, was enough to motivate the leading inhabitants of many major cities to pay the crown's asking price, often 100,000 livres or more." (SOURCE: "Law, City, and King: Legal Culture, Municipal Politics and State Formation in Early Modern Dijon, pp. 136 et seq.). This is corroborated by Raymond Poincare who states that "From 1692 onwards Louis XIV issued a whole series of edicts and ordinances depriving the ancient electors of the communes of the right of choosing their own mayors ; he created the offices that is, hereditary public appointments of sheriffs, jurats, capitols, and perpetual mayors. The pretext alleged was that the interest of the towns demanded such a step, as they were said to be agitated and disturbed by elections. But in actual truth these offices were created that they might be sold and the royal treasury filled." (SOURCE: How France is Governed, pp. 33-34). The present manuscripts concern a lawsuit by one of these mayors, namely Nicolas-Francois Boucquel (at that time mayor of Arras) against Adrien-Philippe du Carieul, Chevalier, Seigneur de Fiefs, Beauquesne, etc., and the members of the Confrérie Saint Sebastien in Arras. To these manuscripts are attached printed documents which describe the new terms for the office of the "perpetual mayor" and would appear to have been used to support the position of the plaintiff. As if the infallibility of the original 1692 Edict was not enough, the plaintiff also attached a copy of the 19 Aug. 1702 "Declaration du Roy pour le Reglement des fonctions des Maires & de leurs Lieutenans." The document reaffirms the validity of the 1692 and August 1701 Edicts. THE PLAINTIFF: Nicolas-François Boucquel came from a powerful and wealthy family (his father had been ennobled to a charge of Secretary to the King in the Chancery of Paris in 1683). Boucquel became mayor of Arras in March 1692, and was appointed Conseiller Secretaire-Controlleur of the Chancellerie pres le Parlement de Douay in 1703. In this capacity he presided over the renewal of the aldermen and hearing accounts. In 1718 the city of Arras tried to get rid of Boucquel, and suddenly "abolished" the mayoral post, only to appoint François Deslyons the next year. But in 1719, Boucquel was reinstated upon payment of twelve thousand livres. Nicolas-François Bouquel died suddenly December 18, 1726, struck with apoplexy in the rue Saint-Nicolas, in Arras (SOURCE: Dictionnaire historique et archéologique du département du Pas-de-Calais, Volume 1, 1873, p. 52). Several versions of the August 1692 Edict exist, only one of [Attributes: First Edition]

      A La Haye, Chez T. Johnson, MDCCXI, MDCCXII (1712-1713). - 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 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Scabiosa Indica flore saturate rubro [Double-flowered mourning bride]; Scabiosa Indica flore dilute rubro [Mourning bride]; Scabiosa tenuifolia flore cinero [Scabiosa]

      Eichstatt 1713 - Hand-coloured engraving. Some soiling in bottom margin and off-set from text, otherwise good 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 from the plants in the garden of Bishop Johann Conrad von Gemmingen, his patron. Depicted in this florilegium were flowers, herbs, vegetables and "exotic" plants such as tobacco and peppers. Besler and his brothers were familiar with real and alleged medicinal properties of the different plants, and they lived at a time when exotic, new plants were being shipped to Europe from all over the world. The garden that Besler 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.

        Romæ Antiquæ Notitia: or, the antiquities of Rome. In two parts. Together with HAMILTON/KIRK, OUtlines.Vases, 2nd edition, 1814.

      London: for T. Child & R. Knaplock 1713 - Fifth edition. 1713 (19.5 x 12.5 cm), [16], 375, [29]pp., engraved portrait frontispiece and vignette to title page, illustrated with 12 engraved plates; contemporary sprinkled calf, double blind roll framing boards, red morocco lettering piece to second compartment of six, raised bands, red spreckled edges, somewhat rubbed. Provenance: Earls of Macclesfield (armorial bookplate and blindstamp). "[Kennett] graduated BA in 1693 and MA in 1696 [from Oxford College]. That year he published his first and most successful work, Romae antiquae notitia, or, The Antiquities of Rome. Prefaced by two original essays - 'The Roman learning' and 'The Roman education' - it passed through many editions, and as late as 1786 the bookseller William Lowndes purchased a thirty-second share in the rights to the book. Its elegant synthesis of the antiquarian data assembled over the previous 200 years ensured it a leading place among books on the daily life of the Romans until the nineteenth century."

        Mundus Physico-Mathematicis Quaestionibus Elucidatus

      Salzburg: Johann Joseph Mayr, 1713. Folio, with three engraved map plates; rather dusted, especially at beginning and end, some wear to lower margins at start and a few pages waterstained; recent quarter dark calf and marbled boards. Unusual 18th-century maps of Nova Hollandia. Rare: with little-known and unusual cartographic depictions of New Holland. This is an unusually lavish presentation of a thesis, presented at Salzburg University by the exotically titled Count Schlick. Two of his complex and interesting maps encompass the discoveries of the previous century both of Australia and the Pacific in general, while a third plate has three different projections of the world map. A copy of the book handled by us a few years ago had a frontispiece which is not present here. The maps are curious but finely executed, set within detailed and highly stylised plates. "Nova Hollandia", in particular, has a distinctive and rather unusual shape, which might be thought to borrow from the classic designs of the late-seventeenth century. They are unusual for a work of this date because they evidently have not taken into account, for example, the Thevenot map (see catalogue number xxx). At the same time, a case could be made for relating the map more closely with the more imaginative depictions of the great southern continent in the sixteenth century, with their depictions of "Beach" and "Terra Australis Incognita". There is a curiously outdated depiction here of California as an island (although not confirmed as a peninsula until the mid-eighteenth century, the theory was gaining wider acceptance at the time Schlick's book was published). This is a surprisingly scarce book; we have traced just four German and two other library holdings, and only the State Library of New South Wales copy in Australia. None of Schlick's maps is recorded by Tooley.

        Flos Solis maior [Sunflower]

      Eichstatt 1713 - The best of the best: Besler chose this breathtaking image to start the summer section of his great work - to his age and every generation since, the sunflower represents the long easy days of high summer. This is botanical art at its pinnacle: the best image from the greatest botanical work from the pre-Linnaean era. Basil Besler originally published "Hortus Eystettensis," the earliest large folio botanical work, 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 from medieval lore. 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 engraved after his drawings was unique. The prints, made by a team of master engravers, are strong and exquisitely done. 3rd edition. Hand-coloured engraving. In excellent condition with expert strengthening to left and lower margin.
