SPEED, John, & Henry Overton.
London., c1713-43. Mount size: 560 × 680 mm. Copperplate engraving. Good condition, slighty age toned, slight tear to engraved surface. Henry Overton acquired the famous John Speed county map copperplates from Christopher Browne sometime before 1713. Soon after he re-engraved the maps, using his own imprint of "Sold by Henry Overton at the White Horse without, Newgate, London", and re-issued the maps under the atlas title of "England fully described in a compleat sett of mapps of ye count's of England". Apart from the new imprint, the most obvious changes made by Overton was the addition of engraving major county roads. This is his example of Somerset.

Engraved vignette on title, one folding engraved plate, and numerous woodcut diagrams and illustrations in the text. 14 leaves, 484, [8] pp. 1 vols. 4to. The Second Principia. The critical second edition of what is incontestably the single most important scientific work ever published, one which laid the foundations for modern physics. Published in Newton's lifetime by his friend and collaborater, Roger Cotes (1682-1716), this edition contains for the first time Cotes' Preface which lays out Newton's method, a 7 pp. Index, and most importantly, Newton's own celebrated conclusion entitled SCHOLIUM GENERALE (pp. 481-484), written in response to the objections of Berkeley and Leibniz, in which the author expresses the religious conceptions underlying and supporting his empirical-mathematical construct."Copernicus, Galileo and Kepler had certainly shown the way; but where they described the phenomena they observed, Newton explained the underlying universal laws. The PRINCIPIA provided the great synthesis of the cosmos, proving finally its physical unity. Newton showed that the important and dramatic aspects of nature that were subject to the universal law of gravitation could be explained, in mathematical terms, within a single physical theory. With him the separation of natural and supernatural, of sublunar and superlun … [Click Below for Full Description]

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. This is among the earliest formal histories of Marlborough's military career.". [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]

SPEED, John (c. 1552-1629)
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.

Joutel, Henri
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).

Picart, Bernard
[Chez Reinier Leers,], [Rotterdam], 1713. 225 x 365 mm. Hand-colored copper engraving signed: "Inventé et dessiné par B. Picart, 1713. Gravé par vander Gouwen." Bernard Picart (1673-1733) was a well regarded engraver, initially taught by his father and later by Le Brun and Jouvenet. Successful by the time he was sixteen, he later moved to Amsterdam where he was much sought after by printers for plates and ornamental engravings, especially on religious and mythological themes in addition to portraits, much of which can be seen in this print taken from the French historian Isaac de Larrey's "Histoire d'Angleterre" (Rotterdam, 1713). De Larrey's portrait is at the upper left in an oval carried by Fame, who is playing a trumpet. In the background is London, to the left England (in the image of a Queen sitting with a Lion), and with the history being transcribed by History and a winged figure; at the lower left, Time trying to eat the pages of a book while winged figures are wrestling them away. A near fine copy, light toning, a few minor edge tears well away from image (hinged at top in mat). [Attributes: Signed Copy]

[Treaties of Utrecht]
Paris: Chez Francois Fourneir, Avec Privilege de sa Majeste, 1713. Four items bound in one volume. 117,[2]; 80; 43,[1]; 23pp. Quarto. Modern half red morocco and marbled boards, spine gilt. Contemporary ink number in upper outer corner of each titlepage. Near fine. The growing power of France and its attempt to install a Bourbon on the Spanish throne in 1700 led to a general European war from 1702 to 1712, with widespread repercussions in the American colonies. Known in Europe as the War of the Spanish Succession, it was called Queen Anne's War in America. During its course, the French and Indians launched bloody raids on British frontier settlements, and the British seized parts of Canada. The war went badly for the French and Spanish and well for the British, who were thus able to gain favorable terms. A group of treaties grew out of this settlement, which did much to determine European and American circumstances in the early 18th century. The present volume collects the official French printing of four of the treaties signed by France: those with Great Britain, the Estates General (the Netherlands), the Kingdom of Savoy, and Prussia. France actually signed two treaties with Great Britain, a treaty of navigation and commerce, and a general peace treaty. France returned Hudson Bay to the British and gave up Newfoundland and Nova Scotia, as well as St. Kitts in the Caribbean, and acknowledged England's sovereignty over the Iroquois. The French received fishing rights off the coast of Newfoundland, and both countries agreed to extend most-favored nation trade status … [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.

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.

[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.

Ienae, sumtu Io. Felicis Bielkii, litteris Krebsianis 1713 - ex recensione Friderici Sylburgii, cum interpretatione Ioannis Leunclavii, & notis variorum, accurante Christophoro Cellario, smalcaldiensi. 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.

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.
