Leiden., c1713-14. suivant les Nouvelles Observations de Messrs de L'Academie Royale des Sciences etc... Size: 245 x 335 mm. Copperplate engraving with original outline colour and later hand colour. Fair condition. some creasing and minor discolouration, and repairs to the central fold. Pieter van der AA (1659-1733) was from a family of booksellers and publishers in Leiden, who flourished during the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. His work was well executed and highly regarded by his contemporaries. The maps themselves are easily recognised and distinguished by their attractive title cartouches, and for the precise cartographic detail they contain. A lovely map of Germany, stretching from northern France to Poland, and southwards to northern Italy and Croatia.

London: John Morphew & E. Curl 8vo (19.7 cm, 7.75").

[PARNELL, THOMAS]
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 th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Johann Christoph Volckamer
Johann Christoph Volckamer (1644-1720) Illustration from Hesperidum Norimbergensium First Latin Edition: Nuremberg, 1713 Hand-colored copperplate engravings 19” x 14 1/4” framed Volckamer’s spectacular illustrations were based on Giovanni Battista Ferrari’s Hesperides, which was the first book entirely devoted to citrus fruit and one of the most sumptuous baroque botanical books. Illustrated by many of the most noted classical painters of the 17th century, including Nicholas Poussin and Guido Reni, the Hesperides had a profound impact on contemporary botanical knowledge of citrus fruits and their classifications. Volckamer took Ferrari’s relatively scientific model in a new direction, however, by adding lovely landscape settings below the citrus fruits, which seem to hover above in the skies. The settings include formal gardens and classical villas, perhaps in order to illustrate the places in which the fruits were cultivated, or simply to add a decorative element to the representations. Volckamer’s distinctive images, therefore, were not only of scientific interest, but of considerable esthetic appeal.

James Knapton, 1713. Second edition of this response to Anthony Collins's much-debated Discourse of Free-thinking. Hoadly was an Anglican clergyman who served as bishop of Bangor; four years after his entry into the Freethinking controversy with the present rebuttal of what he considered atheist arguments made by Collins, he initiated the Bangorian Controversy with a sermon regarding the worldly authority of the church versus that of the state.

Ienae, sumtu Io.

Editio secunda. Zosimus. Historien byzantin du Ve-VIe siècle, dont les dates sont inconnues. Avocat proche de la Trésorerie impériale de Constantinople. Défenseur du paganisme. Il est fortement probable qu’il fût le contemporain de l’empereur Anastasius I (491-518). Zosimus est l’auteur de l’histoire des empereurs romains : Historia romana ou Historia novae, en 6 volumes. Elle commence avec Auguste, et décrit brièvement la période qui s'étend à 270 (I, I-XXXVI). Il se termine avec les négociations qui ont précédé la conquête de Rome en 410. Son travail fait autorité. Il fait preuve d'un esprit critique et d'une certaine ardeur philosophique. Il était païen et dévoué à l'adoration des anciens dieux romains. Il adhère également aux superstitions païennes, comme le fait que les étoiles ont une influence sur la vie des hommes et sur les vérités païennes.

Effen, Justus van, 1684-1735.
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]

BESLER, Basil (1561-1629)
Eichstatt, 1713. Hand-coloured engraving. In excellent condition with the exception of being trimmed within the platemark on top and right margin. Tiny brown stain in center of sheet. 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.

Johann Christoph Volckamer
Johann Christoph Volckamer (1644-1720), was a wealthy Nuremberg merchant who owned numerous orchards, as was fashionable among the upper class in the 18th century. In 1713 Volckamer employed artists and engravers to illustrate his fruits, over one hundred plates in all, which he published as Nurnbergische Hesperides. Volckamer’s spectacular illustrations are based on Giovanni Battista Ferrari’s Hesperides, which was the first book entirely devoted to citrus fruit and one of the most splendid baroque botanical books. Illustrated by many of the most noted classical painters of the 17th century, Ferrari’s Hesperides had a profound impact on contemporary botanical knowledge of citrus fruits and their classifications. Volckamer, however, added different landscape settings below his citrus fruits, which seem to hover above in the skies taking Ferrari’s relatively scientific model in a new illustrative direction. The settings include formal gardens and classical villas, perhaps in order to illustrate the places in which the fruits were cultivated, or simply to add a decorative element to the representations. Volckamer’s distinctive images, therefore, were not only of scientific interest, but of considerable aesthetic appeal. This hand-colored engraving is in the Volckamer style with numerous types of flowers floating above the receding countryside below. This plate is in very good condition, with only slight staining in the margins, a few small marks on the plate and evidence of binding on the left edge.

Volckamer himself would have owned a building like this to grow and preserve his fruit trees from the harsh winter. This plate is in excellent condition with only slightly uneven margins and small areas of foxing within the margins.

While it pays tribute to Marlborough, Blenheim, which is called Hochstet, is attributed to God's intervention as much as to the "sedateness" and courage of the two commanders...It is not surprising that neither Marlborough's names, nor any of his family, nor those of Addison, Steele, Garth, nor Godolphin, Sunderland, Halifax and other Whig leaders appear on the list of subscribers.

Numerous attacks on the Discourse were published, including rebuttals by Richard Bentley, George Berkeley, and Jonathan Swift; the present two pieces are more obscure (the second was written by a physician far better remembered today for his founding of a hospital for the poor than for his writings), but offer interesting perspectives on contemporary thought.

JOUTEL, Henri (ca. 1640-1735)
Estienne Robinot, Paris, 1713. 12mo., (6 4/8 x 3 6/8 inches). Large folding engraved map of the eastern seaboard, Caribbean, and Central America (creased, one or two small holes, and unevenly browned), woodcut head- and tail-pieces. Contemporary French mottled calf, smooth spine in seven gilt decorated compartments (a bit scuffed at the head of the spine, front hinge just starting). First edition of the most accurate account of La Salle's last expedition and of his death at the hands of his own men, prepared from Joutel's manuscript journals by one Jean de Michel, who had been assigned the task of putting Joutel's account in order by the bookseller Estienne Robinot, commissioned by Joutel (after 15 years of hesitation) to publish the journals, in order to refute the many errors in H. de Tonti's "Dernieres decouvertes dans l'Amerique Septentrionale de M. de la Sale" (1697). A veteran of the French army, Joutel had joined La Salle as his aide in 1684, inspired by the explorer's plan to found a colony at the as yet undiscovered mouth of the Mississippi. Royal approval of the project, whose real motivation was to establish a French foothold close to Spanish territory, was granted in 1684, and the expedition of four ships set sail. Waylaid by storms and Spanish corsairs, the vessels overshot the Mississippi and landed on the coast of Texas at Matagorda Bay, where a colony was founded. La Salle made several attempts to find the Mississippi, during which expeditions Joutel was often left in charge of mutinous camps of colonists. When promised reinforcements failed to appear, La Sa … [Click Below for Full Description]

BESLER, Basil (1561-1629)
Eichstatt, 1713. Hand-coloured engraving. Trimmed within platemark top margin and at the platemark on the right, wormhole in bottom margin, otherwise very good. 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.

"Richard Bentley, Master of Trinity College, was instrumental in bringing out this second edition, which was edited by Roger Cotes, F.R.S. In his important preface, Cotes attacks the Cartesian philosophy then still in vogue in the universities, and refutes an assertion that Newton's theory of attraction is a causa occulta. It contains a second preface by Newton and considerable additions, the chapters on the lunar theory and the theory of comets being much enlarged" (- Babson 12).<br> Newton, in the PRINCIPIA, stated the three laws … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paris: Estienne Robinot, 1713. 12mo., (6 4/8 x 3 6/8 inches). Large folding engraved map of the eastern seaboard, Caribbean, and Central America "Carta Nouvelle de la Louisiane et de la Riviere de Missisipi. . ." (14 1/4 x 14inches) (short repairs at the mount), woodcut head- and tail-pieces (lightly browned, one or two spots). Contemporary French sprinkled calf, spine in six compartments with five raised bands, morocco gilt lettering-piece in one, the others decorated with small gilt tools (hinges just starting at the head of the spine). First edition. A very attractive copy of the classic account of the ill-fated La Salle expedition, the first attempted European settlement of the area, with the rare and important map which laid the groundwork for the later maps of Texas. Jackson, Flags Along the Coast pp. 123-4: "Before leaving the subject of the influence of Delisle's "Carte Du Mexique", the map which appeared in Hendrix Jute's "Journal Historique" (1713) should be mentioned. This "Carta Nouvelle de la Louisiane" - like Delisle's map - has the Mississippi in mid-continent, emptying into the Gulf just west of the old bay off Espiritu Santo. Jute's map shows the bay quite large, but even larger is his "bay de St. Louis." Moreover, Jute gives a detailed account of French exploration within Texas, keyed to letters on the map. Thus, this map represents a transition to the type of information that Delisle depicted on his 1718 map of Louisiana. Joutel was La Salle's second in command on the ill-fated expedition. In 1682 La Salle had gone down the Mississippi to the Delta and … [Click Below for Full Description]

(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 tr … [Click Below for Full Description]

LONICER, ADAM
Ulm: Daniel Bartholom�, 1713. Ulm: Daniel Bartholomä, 1713. n. 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.)

London: J. Morphew, 1713. eighth edition 'with large additions'. Recently rebound in tan calf. Blind rules around decorative panel on both covers, spine with raised bands, gilt rules in compartments. Lower edge of title is shaved, partially affecting publisher and date. A very good copy in an attractive binding. p. [xvi], vi, 224. Eight plates. Includes the plate opposite p.181, with 'the divell' presiding over Cromwell's cabinet. Also includes Samuel Butler's 'A Vindication of the Royal Martyr', King Charles I, pp.181-224 This book was probably by Edward 'Ned' Ward, the infamous satirist and city publican, and high church Tory. He was very popular in the United States, but pilloried in England for his attacks on the government. Pope wrote that Ward's 'vile' rhymes were exported to the colonies to be changed for bad tobacco. This curious work, is an attack on The Calf's Head Club, a legendary Whig gentleman's club who met on January 30th of every year. DNB mentions a first edition of 1703, and Chambers' Book of Days mentions that the first edition was a twenty page pamphlet, but this present edition, the eighth, is the earliest held in the major British libraries.
