And are to be sold by R. Whitledge, 1713. Folio, 15ââ?¬Â x 10ââ?¬Â. 1291 pp + Appendix of Instruments, Tables, Index. Contemporary full leather boards.

This is an oversized or heavy book that requires additional postage for international delivery outside of Canada and the US. Edmund Gibson was a British divine and jurist. While a conservative in church politics, and opposed to Methodism, he was no persecutor, and indeed broke with Walpole on the Quakers' Relief Bill of 1736. He exercised oversight over the morals of his diocese; and his denunciation of the masquerades which were popular at court finally lost him the royal favor.In the discussions which arose during the reigns of William and Anne relative to the rights and privileges of the Convocation, Gibson took a very active part, and in a series of pamphlets warmly argued for the right of the archbishop to continue or prorogue even the lower house of that assembly.The controversy suggested to him the idea of those researches which resulted in the Codex juris ecclesiastici Anglicani, published in two volumes folio in 1713, a work which discusses more learnedly and comprehensively than any other the legal rights and duties of the English clergy, and the constitution, canons and articles of the English Church.

        The Whigs unmask’d: being the secret history of the Calf’s-Head-Club. Shewing the Rise and Progress of that infamous Society since the Grand Rebellion. ... Adorn’d with cuts suitable to every particular design. To which are added, several characters by Sir John Denham, and other valuable authors. Also a Vindication of the Royal Martyr, King Charles the First; wherein are expos’d, the Hellish Mysteries of the old Republican Rebellion. By Mr. Butler, Author of Hudibras

      London: Printed: And Sold by J. Morphew near Stationer's-Hall M DCC XIII, 1713. Full Calf. Near Fine. The eighth, and best, edition, with large additions. 8vo; [16], vi, 224pp, plus 8 full-page copper-engraved plates, including the frontispiece. Bound in contemporary full paneled calf with a wonderful patina, the spine rebacked very skillfully to style; modern red morocco label lettered in gilt. As collectible a copy as one could hope to encounter, the plates in a particularly well-preserved state. Originally published, in 1703, as ’The secret history of the Calves-Head.' ESTC citation no. T147726. The Calf's-Head-Club, whether real or legendary, was a profane Whig society established to deride the memory of Charles I. The dishes served at its chief meeting, held each 30 January, the anniversary of the king's execution, included a cod's head, to represent Charles Stuart; a pike, representing tyranny; a boar's head, symbolic of the king preying on his subjects; and calves' heads , to stand for Charles and his supporters. On the table an ax held the place of honor. After the banquet a copy of the Eikon Basilike was burnt, and a toast was made "To those worthy patriots who killed the tyrant." During the Restoration, the club met secretly. The first mention of it appears in a tract reprinted in the Harleian Miscellany, entitled "The Secret History of the Calves Head Club."& & & &

        Corona Imperialis [Crown Imperial Fritillary]

      Eichstatt: 1713, 3rd edition. Hand-coloured engraving. 21 x 17 1/2 inches. 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.

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.

        VOLLSTÄNDIGES KRÄUTERBUCH, UND KÜNSTLICHE CONTERFEYUNGEN DER BÄUMEN

      Daniel Bartholom?Ulm: Daniel Bartholomä, 1713. Hardcover. Enduringly Popular Herbal in Fabulous Condition And with Princely Provenance. 311 x 210 mm (12 1/4 x 8 1/4"). 2 p.l., 566, [569]-750 pp., [12] leaves (two leaves bound out of order, missing internal blank leaf b-b-b-4). Excellent contemporary or slightly later vellum over stiff boards, yapp edges, title neatly lettered at top of spine in an old hand. Woodcut vignette on title page, ornamental headpiece and initials, historiated tailpieces, and MORE THAN 800 WOODCUT ILLUSTRATIONS THROUGHOUT, including genre scenes, many individual plants and animals, and distilling apparatus. Front pastedown with bookplate "Fürstl. Bibliothek zu Lich" (library of the princes of Lich) and small corresponding library stamp on title page (see below). Nissen 1228; Pritzel 5599; Graesse IV, 256. Very minor soiling to vellum, binding slightly splayed (as expected), a handful of leaves with faint dampstain, but AN EXCEPTIONALLY FINE COPY, the period binding solid and pleasing, and THE TEXT AS FRESH AND CLEAN AS ONE COULD HOPE FOR, particularly in a natural history compendium like this. Lonicer (or Lonitzer, 1528-86) married the daughter of a printer who specialized in herbals, and he worked as a proofreader for his father-in-law while beginning his own career of writing on arithmetic, botany, and medicine, particularly public health. The work that made his name famous is the present enduringly popular herbal, first published in 1546 by the Frankfurt printer Christian Egenolff. The work went through several subsequent editions, being published as late as 1783. The text covers all three parts of the natural world and directs its remarks to a wide audience that includes physicians, apothecaries, and both rural and urban householders. The emphasis here is on how one uses animal, vegetable, and mineral substances in the production of medicinal, gastronomical, and household preparations. Lonicer provides us with one of the early descriptions of local flora, and, among his other accomplishments, he is one of the first to distinguish deciduous trees from conifers. Linnaeus honored the author with the genus Lonicera. As indicated by the bookplate described above, our copy once resided in princely surroundings, having belonged to one of two princes of Solms-Hohensolms-Lich, either Charles Christian or Charles Louis Augustus, who reigned from 1792-1803 and 1803-06, respectively. (Before these two reigns, Lich was a county, not a principality, and after them, the tiny Rhineland state was swallowed up by its neighbors.) Books employed in the maintenance of household health are almost always subjected to hard use, and it is now difficult to find an early herbal in even reasonably decent condition, let alone as remarkable as the present copy--this is all the more true of 17th and 18th century German imprints.

        Denbighshire

      London: Henry Overton, Bassett & Chiswell, c. 1713. Copper-engraved map, with full modern colour, very large marings, in very good condition, except for a stain at the bottom edge, well away from the image. 22 x 26 inches. A highly decorative map of Denbighshire by one of the greatest English cartographers Denbighshire in Wales, clearly a mountainous region, was surveyed by Christopher Saxton, which was Speed's source for this map. William Smith, Pursuivant at the College of Arms, was the apparent source for the coats of arms: one of which is that of Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, Queen Elizabeth's favorite. In the town plan of Denbigh, in the upper right corner is a circular inset displaying what appears to be a castle. It is actually an unfinished and indeed never finished church that Leicester had tried to have built in Denbigh. Apparently, his unpopularity was part of the reason the church was never completed. The map is decorated with a sea monster, a classical god on horseback, and a ship. Henry Overton's edition of this map includes the few roads that snaked their way through the county. cf. Hawkyard and Nicolson, The Counties of Britain A Tudor Atlas by John Speed, p. 73-76; Skelton, The County Atlases of the British Isles 1579-1850, Map Collector's Circle, part 1, #7 Speed and part 4, #92 & 121.

        Piper Indicum medium [Red pepper with long, pendant orange fruit]

      Eichstatt: 1713, 3rd edition. Hand-coloured engraving. 21 x 17 1/2 inches. 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.

        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: Chez Estienne Robinot..., 1713.. xxxiv,386pp. Modern red morocco, raised bands, a.e.g., gilt inner dentelles. Bit tanned. A very good copy. Lacks the folding map. 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).

        Observations On the Inslaving, Importing and Purchasing of Negroes? The Uncertainty of a Death Bed Repentance (with two other titles)

      8vo, original bull sheep with four raised boards, iii-viii, 280,168, 16pp. Benezet title is bound at the end (16 pp.). Binding very worn and rubbed, hinges weak, binding slightly warped, missing endpapers, pages 53-56 are torn, page 5 and 6 is torn in half in Harley?s A Discourse on Mistakes Concerning Religion, last page chipped and folded a bit, but with no material impact on text, internally somewhat, soiled, foxed and aged. Anthony Benezet (1713-1784) was born into a French Huguenot family that moved to London when he was two years old. At seventeen, his family moved to Philadelphia, and he became a Quaker. He became a teacher and established the first public school for girls in America, and along the way he managed to teach slave children from his home. In 1770, with the help of the Quakers, he set up the Negro School at Philadelphia, which he taught at until his death. The current work has the distinction of being one of the earliest and most important anti-slavery efforts printed in America before the Revolutionary War. Also bound with this track is Benezet?s The Uncertainty of A Death Bed Repentance, Thomas Bromley?s The Way to the Sabbath of Rest, and Thomas Hartley?s A Discourse of Mistakes Concerning Religion. It appears the tracts were printed by Christopher Sauer in Germantown.

        AN ESSAY ON THE DIFFERENT STILES OF POETRY

      London: Printed for Benj. Tooke, 1713. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. 210 x 133 mm (8 1/4 x 5 1/4"). [8], 36 pp. With the half title. FIRST EDITION. ORIGINAL UNTRIMMED SIGNATURES, STITCHED AS ISSUED. In a custom-made folding cloth box with morocco spine label. Hayward 149; Foxon P-70; Rothschild 1512. Final four leaves somewhat creased, two small stains to front cover, other trivial imperfections, but A VERY FINE COPY, EXTREMELY FRESH AND BRIGHT, with deep impressions of the type. A native of Dublin, Parnell (1679-1718) was archdeacon of Clogher, a friend of Swift, a member of the Scriblerus Club, and the author of the prefatory essay to Pope's "Iliad." He had an important influence on Blair, Collins, and Goldsmith, the latter of whom co-authored his biography with Dr. Johnson. In the present volume (although the title says "essay," the work is in rhymed couplets), the fledgling poet is allegorically pictured riding on Wit, a winged steed, across lands which he must avoid, such as the territory of frigid style, or of ranting noise, until he comes at last to the palace of the sublime style, where narration and description are properly deployed to arouse noble sentiments. Both Rothschild and Hayward say that the "Stiles of Poetry" was the first work by Parnell to be published, and the only one of importance printed during his lifetime. Furthermore, it was not reprinted in any of the 18th century editions of his "Works." Ours is an especially desirable bibliophile's copy of a scarce item. Hayward comments that, although there surely must have been other extant copies, at the time the catalogue for his exhibition was prepared, only two copies of this work were recorded in Britain outside the public libraries.

First edition of an allegorical fairy tale set in an enchanted pre-Roman Italy, intended, naturally, for the moral instruction of young minds. It includes a key to the sometimes wonderfully fanciful names of the characters (e.g., "Homotille," Grilison," "Ponirge¢" etc.), each of which represents a particular vice or virtue.€ OCLC locates a few copies in Europe, but none in North America. The book was collected and reprinted later by Charles-Joseph de Mayer in the famous LE CABINET DES FEES (Amsterdam, 1785 -1789), but also in the earlier collection of LE CABINET DES FEES (Amsterdam, Estienne Roger, 1717) where, apparently, it was attributed to the Comtesse de Murat (1670-1716).

        Entomological archives, manuscripts and watercolours of the 18th and early 19th century, from the Rémond family, of Semur en Auxois (Burgundy). The authors are Louis Rémond, physician at Semur during the 18th century, F.M. Rémond likewise physician and author of 'Avis aux pères et aux mères sur la vaccine', Dyon & Semur 1818, and his son Maurice Rémond, lawyer at Semur. The greater part of the collection concerns the latter two who both were keen entomologists. The main objects in the collection are 125 watercolour drawings of caterpillars and their cocoons and a full translation into French of Roesel von Rosenhof's 'Der monatlich-herausgegebenen Insecten-Belustigungen'.

      The main interest of father and son Rémond is the metamorphosis of butterflies. The beautifully drawn watercolour drawings of caterpillars are of a superb quality and the animals are drawn with painstaking precision. The work is very much in the tradition of Maria Sibylla Merian who at the beginning of the same century was fascinated by the same subject and published in 1713-1717 a 3 volumes pioneering work 'Der rupsen begin?' We presume that the watercolours and the extensive notes to these plates are by Louis Rémond and the translation of Roesel von Rosenhof by his son Maurice. The whole project was certainly intended to be published. In a draft (May 1808) of a letter of Maurice Rémond to A.J.P. Kleemann (no. 14), the son of C.F. Kleemann and the son-in-law of Roesel von Rosenhof, Rémond informs him of his intention to publish Roesel's work together with his own observations. "Mes compatriotes les français ne connaissent guère de cet ouvrage que la beauté des figures et ignorent les détails intéressantes que renferme le texte, votre langue étant peu répandu en France; c'est ce qui m'a fait former le projet d'en donner une traduction que l'accompagnerai de mes propres observations". He continues asking him details of his father's life which he wants to incorporate in his work. In a reply dated 30 May 1808 Kleeman wishes him success with his project "Je souhaite la plus heureuse réussite de votre projet louable', and adds several pages of text concerning the life of his father C.F. Kleemann. The work of De Geer (no. 3) and Reaumur (no. 4) were studied in detail, notes and drawings were made as well as numerous notes of other authors. The town of Semur was a small centre of scientific studies. Not far from Semur, in Montbard, one of France's most famous naturalists Buffon was born. His main collaborator, Gueneau de Montbéliard lived in Semur. There must have been frequent contacts between the father and son Rémond and these two famous scientists. Between the various documents (no. 14) and papers there is an invitation of the family Guenau inviting Mr. and Mrs. Rémond for a concert (28 Aôut 1797). Among the papers there is a note by Maurice Rémond referring to frequent visits made to M. de Montbéliard. On the same sheet he discusses the 'Encyclopédie Méthodique' published by Panckoucke and later Agasse and tells the following about the daughter of Panckoucke: 'Madame veuve Agasse, née Pankouque, est sans doute la fille de M. Pankouque, venue à Semur dans son enfance et qui a été inoculer par mon père'. This interesting collection shows the keen interest in natural history, especially entomology in the French countryside during the second half of the 18th and beginning of the 19th century. This highly interesting period was characterized by rapid changes due to the French revolution. The collection comprises about 50 volumes and is composed as follows: 1) Collection de Chenilles et de quelques Papillons que j'ai peints d'après Nature. 125 drawings (305 x 230mm) in watercolour showing caterpillars and cocoons, all within an ink drawn frame. Most of the plates show a caterpillar and its cocoon, sometimes there are more to a plate. Occasionally there is only one cocoon or caterpillar to a plate. Each plate is preserved in a folded sheet, dated 'l'an troisième de la République' (1795) with the plate number and the name of the insect in French in manuscript. The collection has a manuscript title as quoted above, and 10 manuscript leaves of index. Preserved in a contemporary blue cardboard box. The collection is classified as follows: Chenilles épineuses, Papillons de jours; Chenilles rases ou demi-velues, Chenilles-cloportes & Papillons de jours; Chenilles à corne sur le dernier anneau. Sphinx; Chenilles rases; Chenilles à tubercules velus; Chenilles velues; Arpenteuses à 10 jambes; Chenilles à 12 et à 14 jambes. Each section is in a paper wrapper with the classification in manuscript. ADDED: 4 contemporary cardboard boxes with explanatory text relating to the above collection of watercolours with the following lettering: P.D.J. [Papillions de Jours] & SPH. [Sphinges] CH.R. [Chenilles rases] CH.V. [Chenilles velues] ARP. [Arpanteuses] The 4 boxes contain the full descriptions of 123 of the 125 watercolours and have corresponding numbering. Each description covers mostly several pages, and gives in neat handwriting the name of the insect together with its finding place as well as the date. The caterpillar and its life cycle are meticulously described. It describes the metamorphosis of the caterpillar into a cocoon, and the cocoon into a butterfly. These observations cover sometimes several months. Extensive reference is made to the works of de Geer, Reaumur, Merian, Roesel, Swammerdam and others, in many instances supplemented by elaborate pen drawings. 2) Traduction littérale de Roesel: Divertissement de l'histoire naturelle des insectes donné par mois. A French unpublished translation of Roesel von Rosenhof's' 'Der monatlich-herausgegebenen Insecten-Belustigung'. Nürnberg 1746-1793. This French translation in 6 folio volumes (bound in 7) in neat handwriting is bound in contemporary uniform boards and was made between 1807 and 1810. The set comprises the supplement by C.F. Kleeman and the final supplement by C. Schwarz. Roesel. Amusemens Périodiques sur les Insectes. 5 volumes (bound in 3). 4to. Contemporary boards. An abridged version in French in manuscript of Roesel von Rosenhof's' 'Der monatlich-herausgegebenen Insecten-Belustigung', probably predating the above final translation. In some cases Rémond's own observations are noted as well (e.g. volume 4 page 91). The first volume has some pages inserted of an earlier draft with a nicely calligraphic title 'Amusemens Périodiques? traduits par M. R(émond). Added are 3 preparatory volumes in manuscript. 1: 'Traduction abrégé des amusemens périodiques, tome premier. Par M. R (émond); 2: Brouillon à garder: Histoire des Polypes d'eau douce?; 3: 'Phalenes ou papillons d'arpenteuses: classes non faites par Ernst. Notes relatives au volume qu'il faudrait faire en réunissant tout ce qu'en ont dit Roesel, Kleemann et Schwarz. Songer à Gladbach'. A manuscript of about 250 pages, translations of above mentioned authors together with his own observations. 3) De Geer, Charles. Mémoires pour servir à l'histoire des insectes. (1752-78). Manuscript extracts and notes of De Geer's work, supplemented by many very attractive drawings in ink. About 240 pages. 4) Notes et observations sur les papillons tirés de Réaumur. Manuscript notes (186 pages), with some drawings in ink on Reaumur's 'Mémoires pour servir à l'histoire des insectes' (1734-42). Together with: Merian.

        Hyacinthus Serotinus obsoleto colore [Late hyacinth]; Ornithogalum lactum maximum [Star-of-Bethlehem]; Ornithogalum Spicatum maximum [Star-of-Bethlehem]

      Eichstatt: 1713, 3rd edition. Hand-coloured engraving. Trimmed within platemark top margin and at the platemark on the right, wormhole in bottom margin, otherwise very good. 20 1/2 x 16 inches. 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.
